This 1 W mean a radical chango of poller on the part I V of the army, for It was expected that the movo- t ! Bent against Porto Rico would bo mado br 1 jr regiments now engaged In the 8nntlago cam- 1 plgn. It was anticipated that only a fow or- 1 conizations of soldiers would be ocnt to 1'orto I f Woo from the Department of tho Quit. I ' Tho OoTemmont rolled on the oxpeoted I ' 5 seasoned character of tho Santiago troops und "t It oould not bo foroaoen that tho health of tho I iii inoa would becomo so Impaired In tho short 6 -v campaign la southeastern Cuba as to rondor lJ f them unfit for duty In Porto IUoo. It is tho j present lntontlon of the War Dopartmsut to I aend ono army corps from tho Florida coast to ' 1 ' participate In tho Porto Woo campaign, and to t maintain tho Fifth Corps under don. Bhattor In I Bantlaeo provinoe for tho prestnt. At least two j 1 regiments ot lmmunes will be sent to garrison j I ' the city ot Bantlaeo. " I K Maior-Oon. John It. Hrooko. commanding the I 6f First Army Corps, has boon summoned to f Washington to consult with the War Dopart- p ment officials in regard to tho Porto Rico oxpo j I dltlon, and he will unquestionably bo plaeod , second In command to Major-Gen. Mllos In the v invasion of tho Island. Tho First Army Corps j will composo tho bulk of tho Invading force. The President and Secretary of War aro dlsln- " cllnod to uso a single man from Santiago In tho ' Torto Rico campaign, on account of the dangor ot spreading yellow fovor among tho other troops. It Is probable, howevor, that soveral batteries of artlltory from tho regular army forces now In Santiago will bo dctallod for tho , Porto IUoo expedition. Thoro aro vory fow batteries of artillery left In tho United States. and tho largo guns aro consldorod absolutely )nocossary fortho subjugation ot the Spanish garrison In San Juan nnd other Porto ltlco 1 towns. 1 ' It Is expected that Qcn. Brooko will arrivedn U Washington to-morrow, whun tho details ot tho 1 1 expedition will bo arrangod. Major-Qon. J. II. i ;' Wilson has already boon instructed to prepare , 1 i for the Porto Rico expedition at once. lie is iml. cow at Charleston. 8. 0., and he will go at the ffl ' bead of tho First Division ot tho First Army III Corps with tlio first troops Btartod for tho liy i Island. IH ; Tho War Department's plans provide for the i 1 ; embarkation of the expedition before tho end BJjj : ef next week, and under the most favorable IN i elrcamstances the troops will be on their way U , within six or seven days. Thoro is no doubt jl that Qon. Miles will command the expedition, IH and those persons who are acquainted with his I n ' record as a soldier prodtot a vigorous campaign v i which will be brought to a prompt oloso. I'M The Government has available, besides the In. troops assigned to department commanders, for M , coast defence and roservo. about 00.000 mon 8 ' for activo serviee. Of those 20,000 are at San- ' tlago. 18,000 at Tamps, 40.000 at Chlckamauga, H 6.000 at Miami. 11.000 at Jacksonville, and 15,- (j 000 at Camp Alger. Va. 'J ; It is probablo that tho prinolpal points ot em- I ' barkation for tho troops destined for Porto i Rico will be Fornandlna and Jacksonville. Tho .ili facilities at those places tor embarking troops i- are oonsldprod especially good and tho War M I Department is disposed to ohose the plaoes tor tl . embarkation where the most can be oocom-, 1 Y pUshed In the shortest time.

The Drltlsh nrlstocraey occasionally enjoys Itself In a wholo-hcarted fashion that is rather refreshing. Tho latest form of entertainment. In England, originated at a ducal houso party In Surrey, and has bocomo popular to a dogreo remarkable when one oonsldors how many per sons are afraid of nppearlng ridiculous. Tho animal raoebas been trlod over horo: but it takes a gathering ot dukes and duohosscs and honorables to carry suoh a porformaneo off with a whoop. On tlio day of tlio event all the small domcstlo animals on tho premises must be oorrallcd, nnd. willy nllly, scmbbod to n stuto of spotless cloanliness. Those aro troublous times for tho amtablo but unambi tious little rig ruthlessly torn from his pon, and the shrieks ot captured hens mingle with tho distracted quacking of frlghtcnod ducks. Tho dogs take tho affair calmly, and tho cats don'tobjectsotiouslysbut tho poaoook'a pride sutfors. and ho always shows resontment. Each oaptlvo oreaturo Is decorated with rib bon, no two having tho same color. When tho guosts assemble, oach rooolves long ntrenmom of ribbon, and tlio hunt for pnrtnors begins. IZaoh guost pairs off with tho animal or bird whose docorations match his ribbon. Then comes tho tug of war. A courso ot two or three hundred yards Is laid out and n prlzo Is offered to tho first person who succeeds In driving his partner past thn goal. Tho word "driving" In omphaslzed. Thoro must he no shoving or dragging. Tho creatures must bo driven. Naturally when tho animals are turned looo dignity goes to thn wall. Kven a duohoss can't preserve her dignity and chase a )iNtcrlcai hen that dives frantloally between her feet and tlnshen around bushes and trees; uud the Arch bishop of Cuntorbury couldn't drive n tile in a dignified raatinor. The iIoks nro coveted part ners and are usually put undor aheavyhuudl cnp. Tho cnta aro not hopeless, though driving neat Isn't bo simple n matter an one might think at first sight. Puss isn't vicious, but sho has ii discouraging fashion ot chucking prog ress in ordor to rub up against her partners legs, and sho Is apt to sit down in a sunshiny spot and blink contentedly at tho rust of tlio performers. Tho ducks aro amenable, though remonstrant: tho peacocks aro said to bo enough to try tho temper of tho most patient and wily tactician ; but tho contestant to whoso lot the pig falls U the mortal who needs untold skill in strategy nnd diplomacy. Deauty hns no effect upon tho small porker. A stately Duchess, a vivacious Honorable Mist, a Ulsuop. a foreign Minister are all ono to him, whonlilsobstluuoy is up In arms. Btatesmon who. In Parliament, have had oxcollout train ing for suoh an occasion, find ruses and hcliomot) of uo avail. Ono small pig can bring the wholo aristocroor ot Groat Britain to grlof ; and there aro n scoro ot peers and peoressoa who aro ready to add eommoutarles to Lolgh Hunt's ossay on " Tho Graces uud Anxlotioa of Pic Driving." An animal race ought to be n case for tho B. P. O.A. To bo suro.no physical injury is In flicted upon tho animals, l'rom nil accounts tho physical injuries scorn to be all on tho side of tho cruel persecutors, and there's a sad talo told of a plucky baronot who pursued a sout tllntr pig through a thorn hwlgo and brought up mnomlnloualy in a goldfish pond. But, though tho animals aro not damaged Physically, their focllngs are hurt, and the met that they share that distinction with the bright est ornaments of tho British nobility may not heal tholr woundod pride. THE CEXTIPEDE TVBNED UP. Presentiment Which Drove a Xew York Woman from the Arkumat Hot Springs. A Now York woman, who returned a woek ago. from the Arkansas hot springs. Is excited over what appears to bo a clovor bit of fore sight on the part ot her guardian angel. Six weeks ago sho went to the springs in search of relief from rheumatism, and was convalescing famously when sho suddenly had a presenti ment that 9I10 was to b stung by one of tho centlpodes that add to the attraction's of Ar kansas resorts. There was no ground for the conviction that haunted her. Bho lent a ner vous or fanolful woman, and she had nover soen, a centlpedo, but she lived in mortal fear day and night. The physician said "nerves," and the woman reasoned with herself and proved to horsclf a hundred times a day that she was In no more dangor from oentipedes than from tigers, but all tho same she couldn't shake oft the tear. Every one in the hotel knew of hor convio tlqn and laughed at It. She laughed at it her .self In a tremulous way. Finally tho anxloty began to tell upon her health, and hor daugh ter insisted that, while there was no excuse for the fear.lt would be wiser for her to leave the plaoe. The woman stoutly said no. The water was caring her rheumatism and sho wouldn't be driven away by an absurd fancy, but at last one night she reaohed suoh a state of fear that ahe wakened her daughter and said sho was going away by the midnight train. Bho sent for tho porter to tako her trunk, 'When he arrived she said: "John, lot that trunk alone. I'm an idiot, and I m not going to allow my foolishness to con trol me. 1 won't go." The porter departed, and tho poor woman dropped baek Into her chair, white utt a ghost, "rve signed my doath warrant." she said. That was too much for tho daughter, who, being a young woman of somo determination, sent tor the Porter onoe more, bundled hor mother up. called a earriogo, and took the midnight train for Now iork, carrying a snoeplsh but mueh-rollevod mother with ner. The day after thoy reached horo they hod n lotter from tho proprietor of the hotel, no wrote that an odd thing had happened, and that it seemed so etrango that ho couldn't resist writing about it. Tho morning aftor thoir hasty departurg a maid went into the room at 0 o clock nnd found, lying just be side the bed, tho largest centipede that had cvor been seen In that neighborhood. Thero wore soreens In tho windows, and no one could offer any explanation tor tho creature's pres ence in the houso; but thero It was lying, just whero any ono. in gotting out ot bod, would have put hor foot upon it. Tho story Isn't a good hotel advertisement, but It has mado ono woman a firm believer in presentiments. LEISURELY LUNVIIEOX8. Growing Hetpect for the Stomachs l'ound Among New York lluslness Men.
