PALMA ADVISERS FIRM THE BUSINESS OF SUPPRESSING THE INSURRECTION IS DAILY BECOMING MORE METHODICAL. ifublishers Pressj Havana, Aug. .31. Upon tht high est official authority it 13 announced that President Palrka positively will not consider in efforts made in in terest cf peace in Cuba, any plans which involve political compromise by the government. In this, the pres dent's official advisers, and practi cally all Ws closest friends, agree, thofe"helding different views being in ecided minority. The business of suppressing the in surrection Is daily becoming more methodical and developing more abil ity upon the part of those engaged in it. Secretary of the Treasury Sterl ing is spending most of his time at military headquarters, systematizing and directing the broader details of arming and equipping the recruits, which is steadily going forward. The victory of the government forces at Campo Florida, 20 miles east of Havana, resulting in the loss of 20 men killed for the insurgents', has net caused the. rejoicing here which might have been expected, as the men slain have relatives and friends here. Be sides, the dominating sentiment In th3 country is anti-government, and in the cities 3 well as in the rural dis tricts there are a number of people who are waiting the developments of events before declaring themselves for or against the insurrection. The authorities of several of the Cuban cities have caused the erection of earthworks as a protection against in surgent attacks. The governor of Santiga has re ceived repoits of a rising at Songo, 20 miles from Santiago. Dispatchej from Can Juan do Mar tinez announce that Pino Guerra was reported to be moving northwestward toward 3 the mountains. THINGS THEATRICAL.

The sultan of Turkey's favorite amusement is playing the violin. The Prince of Wales killed his first tiger near Jaigulr, curiously enough, the very place where Kicg Edward ehot his first thirty years, ago. Left handedness has been common in the Prussian royal family for centuries. The crown prince of Germany is Ihi only child of the kaiser who is not left handed. Queen Margnerita of Italy, widow of the murdered King lluubert, is pos sessed of a knowledge of dramatic art that would make her the best dramatic critic In the kingdom If she were by chance forced to adopt a profession. , Queen Louise, wife of the new kin of Denmark, is the wealthiest princess In Europe. She inherited $15,000,000 from her maternal grandfather, Prince Frederick of the Netherlands, as well as the bulk of the fortune of her fa ther, King Charles of Sweden and Nor way. ' GEMS OF THOUGHT.

Captain Cameron HcRae AVinalovr of (be Armored Cruiser Charleston. Captain Caceron McRae Winslaw, commander of the armored cruiser Charleston, which took Secretary of State Root and his family to Rio Janeiro for the pan-American congress, is not only the son of a hero, but a hero him self.' Ills father commanded the old Kearsarge in her famous fight with the Confederate cruiser Alabama. Captajrj Semmes, off the coast of France. Not content to rest upon the laurels of his distinguished sire, young Wins. low since he entered Annapolis , has been winning laurels of his own. During the Spanish war he was in command of the gunboat Nashville. His cutting of the cable at Cienfuegoa under a heavy Spanish fire was a feat with which the American newspapers were filled for days. Gaing into the harbor in the Nashville's steam cutter, leading launches from the Nashville and Marblehead, Winslow got so near to the enemy's trenches that he could are his revolver into them. The wate? CAHEIiON M'BAE WINSIjOW. aDout the American boats was splash ing like a fountain because of the bul lets from Spanish Mausers and machine guns, but Winslow, though men were falling at his side and he himself was shot in the hand, stuck to the job until It was finished. Recently it was sug gested to the navy department that It would be a fitting compliment to this brave young sailor to give him the com mand of the new battleship Kearsarge, named after his father's ship. Shortly after the close f the Spanish war Winslow married Miss Dora Have- meyer, daughter of Theodore Have- meyer, the sugar magnate. TRAVELS BY AUTO. Kew Strc-.taeem of the Gypiy Moth, lion- the Pent Looks. A new charge against the automobile Is that it is furnishing free transpor tation to the disreputable gypsy moth, which, having devastated Massachu setts, has escaped into New Hamp shire and Connecticut and is now be ginning to invade New York. The fe male gypsy cannot fly, so the spread of the pest is attributed to the inter vention of vehicles, of which the auto mobile is the longest traveler. Ac companying the gypsy moth on its Journeys is the brown tall moth, which can fly very well and thus has a larger radius of action. State Entomologist E. P. Felt of New York has sent out warnings of the approach of this wing ed ally and asks that every one seen be at once reported to Albany. Two rows of warts down the back of the gypsy moth caterpillar make GYPSV. MOTH AND CATEBFIXIjAB. Jt easily distinguishable. The anterior warts are blue, and those toward the tail are red. The female lays its eggs In clusters of about 500 in July and August. They hatch out in the follow ing April or May, and the minute the caterpillars emerge fromtheir cradles they begin to eat. They will eat any thing green and at the slightest dis turbance will jump from a tree and cling to the clothes of a passerby. The brown tail moth's caterpillar has white spots on each side and a singlo pair of red spots near the tail. He has barbed hairs, which cause intense irri tation to the skin of any one coming In contact with him. He prefers the leaves of fruit and maple and elm trees. Cocoons and caterpillars of both kinds may be destroyed by spray ing with a solution of five pounds cf arsenate of lead to fifty gallons of wa ter. Congress at Its last session appro I.rlated $SO,000 to fight the moth pest, and Dr. L. O. Howard of the govern ment bureau of entomology Is now in New England planning a campaign of extermination. Besides spraying or cut ting down infested trees. Dr. Howard employs imported parasites and Euro pean beetles, which climb tha trees and eat the caterpillars tip. Ouo ..--. uv: ia;f.

Prophet Crowdy, who has established a strange sect in Plainfield, N. J., is an Immensely tall, stout man, with a res onant, deep voice and a good sense of humor. As he preached on Sunday in Plain field an auditor consulted Lis watc. whereupon the prophet, smiling, said: "Put up that watch, please, brother. Don't put me in the position of Bishop X. of Philadelphia. "Bishop X. preached one day last month on earthquakes, and after the service a man said to him: " 'An excellent sermon, bishop, and well timed. "The bishop smiled bitterly as he an swered: " 'Yes, it certainly was well timed. Half the congregation had their watch es out all the while I talked. "Phila delphia Bulletin. . ivV,jrSIC AT SEA. fon4:tiona Under Which Ships Sail Sometimes Sing. Some curious facts have been noted with regard to the sound conducting qualities of ships" sails. When ren dered concave by a gentle breeze, the widespread sails of a ship are said to be excellent conductors of sound. A ship was once sailing along the coast of Brazil, far out of sight of i'and. Suddenly several of the crew, while walking along the deck, noticed that when passing and repassing a particular spot they always heard with great distinctness the sound of bells chiming sweet music, as though being rung but a short distance away. Dumfounded by this phenomenon, they quickly communicated the discov ery to their shipmates, but none of them was able to solve the enigma as to the origin of these seemingly mys terious sounds which came to them across the water. Months afterward, upon returning to Brazil, the crew determined to satisfy tlieir curiosity. Accordingly they men tioned the circumstance to their friends and were Informed that at tlw time when the sous were heard tho bells in the cathedral of San Salvador, on the coast, had been ringing to cel ebrate a feast held in honor of one of the saints. Their sound, wonderful to relate, fa vored by a gentle, steady breeze, had traveled a distance of upward of 100 miles over the smooth water and had been brought to a focus by the sails at the particular locality In which the sweet sounds were first heard. This is but' one of several instances of a similar kind, trustworthy authori ties claiming that this same music is often heard under aomewhat the same circumstances anc2 especially In a mois ture laden atmosphere.

And yet as it fails on a listening ear and leaves its message of melody earth's green s-ems brighter and life Is bweeter all through an autumn day. The coo of a babe is a little thing neaningless soulTd from a vacant mind. Bi 'tis the only sound that all na tions heed the one clear language that all races know. A mother's love is a little thing to soon, alas, forgot! But it typifies to blind humankind the love and trust and hope divine that bear with patience calm and sweet tho willful wrongs In these lives of ours. A passing smile is a little thing lost in a world of toil and care. And yet the soul with gloom oppress ed and the life grown wearied with burdens hard will happier be In the afterglow of a smile that Is warmly kind. A kindly word is a little thing a breath that goes and a sound that dies But the heart that gives and the heart that hears may know that It sings and sings and sings till at last it blends with the wild bird's song and the coo of babes in what men call the celestial choir .Mil Tukt Journal.
