Iu citn,;, Cagaya s. Mind iuio Is'and,
Philippine-, June 27. ?Companies M
and H were amba?hed by thn insnrgents
oa the morning vf June 14'h,
10 miles *outh of the town of Caga\ an,
while through -i cmon in the
mountain?. We were fi.ed a^on from j
the top of eac'j hill where the insurgents
were entrenched, a id the hills
being too ste;p to charge we had to
retreat back the way we case, leaving
nine of our men killed and one
wounded hi tbs hands of ihe insurgent?.
There were nine Americans
killed and eleven wounded, some
being shot as many as three time?. We
returned to Cagayau that afternoon
and the following morning the iosnrgent
leader sent in wo;d to Major
Case that ibey had buried nine of owr
men and had marked their graves ai.d
bad one a prisoner, who was wounded
through the foot. The oiie that they
have a prisoner is a corporal in the
tame company that I am. We have
not near troops enough here on

The health of the soldiers ha? been
very good so far in Mauila and all
parts of ,K~ Philippines. I have uo
doubt L-u tV.- these isauds are amoug
the most healthful of all tropical
countries, and for people who live
well and take care of themselves there
is but littie danger. Tbe^ heat is no
geeator tbau that of the United Slates
in the summer. The natives, however,
have no health regulations, and a
house to house visitation, which the
sanitary officials have been making,
shows that the city of Mauilt is io a
very bad condition. The death rate i
loof olr mrvnthc nF IftQQ OT4R I
about 41 per 1,000, estimating the
population at 300,000, or if estimated
at 400.00O, about 31 per 1,000 These
figures are said to be exceedingly
high, liong Koa?, which is iu the
same latitude as Manila and which has
about the same climate, has a death
rate only half as large, aud it is next
door to China, with all the plagues
e that that country so regularly produces.
During the first ttiree month*
of the year, however, there were a
nnmKax ftf flosoe rtf lh>> hlftct dpAlh n!*
bubonic plague in Manila. This
plague broke out at several of the
pons of Japan and (Jaina, and there
ha? been a number of deaths from it
itt Manila. The doctors here sa? that
it is oltau communicited by rats, ami
during the first part of the year they
seni out an order that all rats were to
be killed. It is charged th*t the Filipinos
and the Chiuese would not cooperate
with the health department iu
this matter, because there are many
among them who eat rats as food.

1 uave uea.ru iuat uncu iaio aic uifered
for ?a!e as eatable articles in tbe
cities of China and I have seen them
for sale in tbe Chinese stores in
Manila. The rats cornmanicatj the
plague by coming iu contact cr by
rnnma<; over the people. It is also
carried by the fleas whica live on tbe
rats and carry the disease to r t.e human
-v. beiiiss wbose bodies may form their
next feeding ground.
So far nearly every one who has
caught ibe black plagae here has died.
The disease comes upon one without
warning iu the shape of a fever which
in a short time raises the temperature
of the patient to 105 degrees and opward
; tbere is no chill, bot the patient
his a severe headache and slnws
signs of s:npor. After twelve hours
the glands of the neck, the armpits or
the groius begin to sweli, and soon
becjine a3 large as hen eggs. Iu
som* cases the patient voruits blood,
and within a few hoars he die?. Some
few recover, and if one can keep himself
alive for six days after exposure
he is probably safe. The plague kills
rats as well a3 human beings. Tae
doctors in Manila, I hear, hid considerable
trouble in disposing of ibe
bodie?. Th-'y first insisted tbat ail
should be barned. but t ie Chinese aud
Filippino3 made sach an oat cry over
that (hit General Otis couuterm mde.i
the order. It is said that 50 per cent
of tbe people of the Pnilippines are
sufferers from skin di?eas and from
the amount of scratching I >ee going
onljadge the figures are not overdrawn.

apparently hunting for fl;as. Tne
disease is largely CimeJ by eating
fiab. wbicb forms the cbiel diet of tbe
native Filipino. It briars about a
fish eczema ia which tbe skin scales off,
making the patient look at times not
unlike a lepsr. Then there is the dobe
itch, which iss) common that at least
one third of the foreigners have had
it. Tbis is supposed to be cansed by a
parasite, which comes in the water in
which Ibe clothes are cleansed by the
Filipino washerwomen. It usually
attacks the toes, the armpits and the
parts of the body which perspire most
profusely, causing a rash. It sets one
almost craz?. but is easily cure.I and is
not at all d'ingerou?. Toe most dangerous
of all the skin diseases U of
coarse the sraa'lpox, which has lately
broken out in a number of places. It
existed along the line of the railway
in Luzon and at several ports, aud is
said io be spreading in Panay and
Cebn. Several officers of the army
have had it, but a? yet it has not

The spring months are the most dangerous
times of the year for this disease.
The weather is hot and dry and
the heat from noon until about 4 p. m.
is often oppressive. One trouble about
vaccinating both Filipinos and Chinese
lies in their superstitious. Many of
the Filipinos are fatalists; they think
they are fated to die or get we'll, and
if so vaccinatiou will not helpthsm.
One belief is that cholera is brought
by a black dog which rans through
the streets with the disease following
behind him. ?.'hey believe in charms
and ia prayers as preventives of diseases,
and tbe priest have encon: aged
them ;.n thi?. Some years ago t-holer?.
morba8 was common and some of the
friars advised tbe people t ? pr.;v t ? St.
Boque. Tbe disease kept * ., j..r !?.,ine
time, bat when it stopped ;har -aint
got !lie credit for if.
The Filipinos have numerous 6hrines
scattered over the coaatry which are
supposed to be especially ho J v. One
is at Ami Polo, not far fiom Manila.,
It is frequented by thousands of pilgrims
in the month of May, and ir ib

Mr. Editor: As I have not seen anything

Comrade J. S. Chappell and myself

South Carolina division of U. C. V.
On arriving Tuesday* eveniug in this
beautiful and prosperous young city
we found it crowded with ve erans
and sons of veterans, sponsors ar.d
maids of honor and visitors generally.
By Wednesday eveuing thecro^d was
estimate.! at from 5,000 to 7.000 There
were 1,100 vet'raus and nearly -is

Hotel, where the committee had
its headqaarters. tiere the veterans
were registered and sent to the homes

and ro/al peop'e greeted ns with a
warm welcome; they opened their

and assured us that their nomes were

Captain Waller, commander of the
local camp, aio?e and made au eloquent
address of welcome before turn
iug t&e body o*er to Gen. Walker.
Here the eutrance of two old batile
flags caused loud cheers. Gen. Walker
then ar and responded to Captain
Waller, making a fioe speech.
The fi.st duty of tbe body always at
reunions is to pay tribute to the Con
federate dea.1. This is doue by repeating
at the proper time indicated
by the commander the word-*. "They
died for their country." After tbis
tribute is paid to the women of the
South by repeating in the same manuer,
"God bless th-i women of the
Confeieracy." Gen. Walker then announced

Geo. B. Lake stating that they both
were too unwell to be with us in person

There was one thing I failed to notice
in pome of the speeches of candidates
at Feas'.ervilJe, and ihst was
their ii liculing of the poor drunkard.
One of the candidates said he met up
with a snan that was not walking
straight, and in a talk on politics he
declared himself for phohibuiun,
which caused a little laugh.er.
Suppose we look at the cause ot that
mau's fix. Ii was caused not by (be
political situaiion the man was wanting.
i. e., prohibition, hot by a policy
not wanti d by the people, but by the
linnnr ond mnnpr Inverp. If fhp man
coold not have gotten the liquor he
conkl not have been drank, and he
would Lave misted being made fun of
by these same candidates that are
against prohibiii )n. These candidates
should lake a mote serious view of
this?oue of man's greatest evils?the
beverage use of liqaor. Ouly think
of ibe poverty, wretchedness aud disgrace
uien have broughtcn themselves,
thoir families find SGCietV bv StrOnff
flriufr. Col. Hoyl is holding his oxu,
I am thankial to see.
We Lave bad several nice little rains
in the last few days. Crops have been
Wofally inj ired by the drought.
To all appearauces the chances for
the Democrats to fi.l the higho*t offices
in the United States are good.
The weather has been and if uopf
extremely warm.
