ll v WAsnisotost.Julrl4.-An early sequonoo ot
i tho surrondor of Santiago and the eastern end
of Cuba will bo the Invasion of Torto Illoo with
lb a military foroo nlmost entirely composed of
j m fresh troops from the United States. 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

Dukes and Dncheiies Unbend Their Dignity
to Drive l'lfi and Hem.
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.

Men aro learning that luncheon is a tiling to

got an oxcellont meal faultlessly served, suioko
an nfter-lunehoon cigar in an inviting easy

then, somo ot tho fraternity havo bocn offering
to shlno shoes for four conts. Tho latter aro
looked down upon by tho othors as "scabs"
who sook to destroy tho trade, and nro sub

tho four-cont bootblack suddenly seized tho
