LOUIS KEPFBLIC: SUNDAY. JULY 10, 1004.
LATEST ENGLISH SAN JUAN HILL IN 1898 AND IN 1904. STYLES FOR THE Pcrge or Cashmere the Favorite Outing Cloths of the Ho- ment in London. STRAW HAT HAS HIGH CROWN. Wing Collar the Correct Thing. the Wings Being Much Larger Thau Thc-e Formerly in Vogue. When tho really hot weather comes this summer it will bo found that the high- 'ass river suit will no longer be made of Sannel, or rather of flannel-finished an gola, but of sergo or cashmere, and that both troupers and Jacket will be pure Miite. The whlto suits will bo made with the corners a good deal rounded, as. Indeed, tho comers of all Jackets' aro gradually tending- to bo made, and the Haps of the pockets will also bo much rounded. Somo of these flips are made actually semicircular .1 weird effect; but there is no need to go all that length. There will bo no external h indkerchief pocket an omission which I think regrettable, though It makes ir smartness, mu a writer in the Habcrd isher. Somo tailors aro omit ting Uic ticket pocket, but this is a mis take; men want a place to carry matches, and thcro Is no real objection In these dajs of exquisitely thin match-twees against a tlcket-pockct made Inside on the left nt about tho height of tho hip. Mother o' pearl buttons, not too large, are used, and th lapels nro rolled low. Tha trouMirs aro slightly looser than those worn with other suits, and fairly long, as they wiU bo worn turned up. Brown boots, bo much In cvldenco last year, will not be worn with this suit, but whlto buckskin or white canvas ones. Of course, this suit will "go" admirably with tho rather showy shirtings which, as I coma time, ago predicted here. much the fashion this summer. Tho proper collar la a fold, with upright fronts If preferred, and certainly with rounded corners, and tho proper cravat a knot In black or very dark blue, without any pattern. This, 1 fancy, exhausts the subject of river dress. KBW COLORED SHIRTS. , Although highly colored shirts aro to be worn on tha river, I do not sea any reason for thinking that other than whlto shirts ' will bo worn la ordinary dress this jear. ' Even soft-front whlto ones or plain flan a nel shirts, arc now not at all good wear I with a morning coat. But I notice that f soma men aro wearing whits shirts with a pleated front with tho morning coat, and a very cool and comfortable device this will be when the warm weather tets In. With a frock suit, however, a stiff white shire must be worn. All shirts are still made with the "sma.ll- rounu culls, and there is not the least sign of this pattern being abandoned, as, , Indeed, there is no reason why it should , oe. square cutis are ugu , they soil qulck ' ly (especially when an English Iaundry ( has sot in Its wicked work on them) and . they aro apt to catch In tho sleeve lin ing of tho coat when th,e latter is being put on. On the other hand, tha old stylo of full-rounded cuffs looks slovenly, while tho small-round Htyle has both conven ience and appearance to recommend it to tho publla taste ,and comfort Being on the subject It may as well be mentioned that tha best hat to bo worn on tha River Thames this summer will bo a straw, with a somewhat higher crown than usual, and a black riband. As I had occasion to remark as early as last summer, the Panama has outlived Its greatest vogue. To say this Is not to Imply that many people, and even many smart people, will not bo w earimr Panamas. They often will. But tho Panama has been so greatly vul garized by cheap copies that even though the expenslveness of a real Panama may mako some men who have Invested In such a hat reluctant to leave off wearing It until they aro obliged to. a strawvard will be the hat for the really smart crowd at Henley and In the upper reaches during the riv er season, which sets In after Hen ley. For golf and other land sports the Nor folk suit continues to be the most ap proved outfit, and it Is Worn with a low fold collar and a colored knot, Harris tweed Is the most satisfactory material, and browns and heather mixtures are the colors, though. Indeed, there is ample lat 1 ltude. HAND LOOMED SCARF. There Is not much that is new In the de partment called "cravatiana." The puff and the Ascot aro the alternatives for frock coat wear; puffs and sometimes knots are worn with the black morning coat;vknots with the fancy morning coat and tlio Jacket; bows nowhere except, of course, with evening dress. A very agreeable range of cravat silks, especially for loose-ended knots and pulls, lias bven Introduced and is finding f.ior with a very exclusive set at the West End of London It is of rich, dull-surfaced, hand-loomed silk, of a smoke-gray ground color, rather farmer In tint than a gray sucdo glove; and It has a moderate-sized design-spot Wttern. Tho effect, especially with a black or gray morning coat, is extremely pleasing, and I should not be surprised to see quite a rairo spring up for this thing as the season goes along. In collars the most important thing to be recorded is the distinct differentiation which has established itself in regard to the wing shapo. The wing collar la the formal collar of this year's London spring season, and the wings themselves nro larger than they were last year by nearly 73 per cent, though they aro not folded any further Vwk. In other words. If the collar were laid out flat, tho wings would bo seen to project oeyona xne ena lines of the tabs. Thus tho opeidng at the middle of the neck, between tho wings, is small, but the wings themselves are fairly large. But the point of differentiation is In the shape of the corners, and I wish to make it verv clear. These corners can be either sharp or rounded. The round-cornered wing collar is full dress: tha sharp-cornered wing col lar is only semldress. Therefore, a round pointed collar should be worn with (l) evening dress, except where a dinner Jacket Is worn: (2) e frock coat: 3) a black morning coat, and a sharp-pointed twine cMlar should be worn with (1) a Ulnncr Jacket. (2) a gray semldress morn lnc coat outfit. I With a twcd Jacket a two or a two-and-n-quarter-lnch fold collar is correct; with ri flannel river suit a two-Inch fold collar; with a Norfolk (unless used for riding) An incli-and-three-ouarters fold collar. Military upright collars and poke collars are not worn at all. Killed by Tall rrora Car. ItDPUBLJC SPECIAL. .New York. July 3.

TJV WILLIAM BENGOrGH written- ron THU siwday republic. An enterprising American business man In Santiago owns a section of the battle ground several miles around tho ridge from San Juan. He showed me a line run ning in front of his country house, where tho historic trench had been before he had filled it up. "Why did you fill It up?" said I. "What's (he good of a hole in the ground?" said he. "Besides, I can easily have it dug out again If I .houId ever want It." Sentiment Is rare at close range. There was a Wall street broker in the Ret gh Riders' trench. I came upon him while le was cooking a p'ecc of dough over a smoky Are on his mess tin. The dough was made from real flour, and therein lay its great value, for Hour and things soft made from Hour were un known at that time at the front. He in vited me to sharo his precious luncheon; It was black and greasy without, having soaked up the s diment of bacon grease from the mes tin. It was simply mlved with water from the muddy river, but it was soft and tit for the gods. TAKING THE HILL. Standing on the top of San Juan hill and lcoking down the slope and across the hollow to Kettle Hill, I try to forget the peaceful dairy herd which Is grazing on the historic ground, and turning backward to that steaming dav six venr.s nun T imagine- 1 see the taking of the hill all ever agoln. Irregular lines and groups and single figures in dark blue Khirts urn cl.mbing and wavering and rushing up the slope, stopping to Are. and then on and up again, while over their heads tho bullets and the shells from our infantry and artillery rush with whine and roar, keeping the Spaniards down as much as possible. As the climbers approach tha top some of our shells burst too close to them, but on they go, until the gunners have to stop firing rather than hit friends. They are close to the top, when the Spaniards turn and fly. and leaders yell and wave their hats to those below, who yell in turn and wavo their hats; then down the line jell goes on. back past the field hos pital at Bloody Angle, back past El Paso, where the exhausted gunners are breath ing free, back past the Cuban reserves, back to whero General Shatter sits sick on his cot, where tha yell tells him that the day is won. Captain Paget, tho English naval at tache, stood with a pair of field glasses glued to his ejes and a running stream of comment upon what he was seeing bab- iMing irom nis lips, "xneyre firing shrap- neu uy jove, mat was closel Ah. too short! That's better! A little lower, a little lower! Excellent! Excellent! Hur rah! That hit them square! There are our men beginning to go up the hill. Look out! That shell of ours was too close to our men! There go the Spaniards. They're running! Our men are waving their hats! Hurrah! They are at the top! I must be in this!" And away he went, stalking to the front. And with him went the little group who of all the thousands there were probably the only ones to see broadly the taking of San Juan. Stephen Crane was one of us, and Major Shlba, the Japanese attache, now on ar tlllerv commander, trj lng some of the les sons ho learned that day on tho Russians In Manchuria. ON THE ROAD TO SAN JUAN. On the road to San Juan squads of our men wcro hunting Spanish sharpshooters from their hiding places In the trees. There was a hospital corps man being carried to tho rear on his own litter, shot through tho lungs as he was helping a wounded man A line old olllccr In snowy mustacho and Imperial, Colonel Grlscomc, afterwards Colonel of the Ninth Infantry. I think it wa". came down the road with his arm around the broad shoulder of a trooper, who was leading the way very gently. To anxious Inquiries as to his condition the Colonel replied courteously. "Oh, I am all right, thank jou." I saw him later in the Philippines, not long before he was killed at Tlen-Tsln. Men who were .ble to walk at all wero sent DacK to tne rear out of the way. Thero were no ambulances at the-front at that time, and wonderful were some of the feats performed by men so badly wounded that the marvel was that they were able to stand at all. One Rough Rider stopped to show lis where he had been hit five times by the same bullet. He was strolling back, still holding to his gun. THE "BLOODY ANGLE." Where tho San Juan River crosses the road was the field hospital, afterwards known as "Bloody Angle." Here tho wounded got their flrst aid dressing, and if thoy could move were sent off 10 the rear to make room for others whose wounds were to stain the waters of the river. Some men died and were burled on tho spot where they fell. Thero is a little group of graves at "Bloody Angle." where Chaplain Swift tolled for several dajs and nights, although wounded himself, taking charge of the few possessions and making notes of the last messages of the djing men. Thero came for several dajs after officers and others looking for the missing; the photograph of Colonel Wood, now Major General Wood, was made while he was looking for dead men at "Bloody Angle." It took a number of able bulled men to help the wounded to the r ". I met two coming down the road looking so nearly dead that I stopped them, and the onlj one who had the power of speech left in him gasped. "Oh. it was terrible? Oh. it was terrible!" "Where are jou hit?" I asked him. "I'm not hit." said he. "I'm helpln' him " "Where Is he hit, then? ' "Oh. he ain't hit. either; he's prostrated with the heat. Oh, it was terrible!" For several daj-s there was a grave In the middle of the path by the side of the main road. No hole had been dug, the earth was merelj- plied up over the dead man and we had to turn out of the path In ordr to pass. ulturos sailed in circles over the mound and from out of tho loose earth tho dead hand of the soldier was held out nppeallnglv. as though protesting at this Indecent burial. MISSION OF THE VULTl'RES. The vultures swarmed, filling the branches of trees and hovering in flocks along the line of the light. I nw none of them on my recent visit to Pan Juan. I remembered a horse that had fallen nnd been abandoned; it was not dead, but its ejes were gone, and tho vultures flapped heavily away nt my appro ich. The retreat of the Spaniards was strewn with dead horses, and lwtwecn our llns and the new- ones the Spaniards took up the carcasses remained buiclllrg to hl'jh heaven while the vultures soared happily in tho fumes. It is difficult at this distance to appre ciate tho disgusting phj-sicnl discomforts of the campaign. We camped at head quarters and within a ston-'s throw- of the General's tent No attempt at the most primitive sanltarv arrangements were mar-. The rains mado a pit of mlro of tho ground trodden by thousands of feet, and Cuban ground Is of a par ticularly slipperj- consistent. That is why it Is such a fine land for agriculture. The rotting vegetation of ages of tropical growth vhen churned Into muck Is better for plants than man. never arose with the miasma which smote the nostrils. The rains drenched the sick nnd wounded. Shelters of rioughs Improvised to take the place of hospital tents, which wero lacking, were blown down on tho wounded men lying beneath mem. in me irencncs tne water lay in pools, while the men wallowed In them, trj'Ing to Invent some of life's primitive comforts The sun beat eViwn on tho un protected heads of soldiers on duty in the trenches who, standing In water, wero protected only from the little nlr that blew In the open. At night the damp and chill struck Into the bone. War is not a pleasant occupation. Yet who. having once tasted the Intoxi cation of It. Its heights and depths of ex altation and disgust. Its crowded llfo and action, the movement and motion, the open life, the thrills of danger, the nar row escapes, the cYscovcrj- of heroes In modest companions and the unvclllnff of cowards in braggards who that ever has tasted it all and feels the grip of Its power can afterward find contentment in tho tamo life of the office and the shop and not at heart live a rebel ever after?

The physician, however, who has not had experience may fall into the error of diagnosing grave diseases of the female system when they do not exist, because disorders of the bowels may be neglected until they give many of the appearances of female disease. The bowels have been known to become so clogged with hardened contents as to produce a condition closely resembling uterine displacement, uterine prolapse (falling of the womb), and the sick headache which is often attributed to female diseases is most often actually due to some trouble in the digestive machinery involving the liver, stomach, bowels or the great "Solar Plexus' which is the central telegraph station from which nervous messages are transmitted to and from all the organs in the abdominal cavity.
