SAY IT'S COLD IN ST. LOUIS. Discard Palm Loaf Suits for Warmer Clothing Declare Americans Treat Them as They Would Monkeys. "Give us blanket; lie are suffering from the cold weather In St. I,ouls." The foregoing sentence, uttered In the Batwa pjgmy language, was the greeting to the Reverend S. P Verncr jestcrdi) morning from I1I3 little black ward", when he paid his first vltit to their camp on the World's Fair ground-. This is the first tlmn Mr. Vomer lias seen his little black charges, whom he brought out of the African Jungles, sine they arrived In this country, for Mr. Ver ncr, who 1 suf'erlrg from Jungle fever, was taken to a New Orleans hospital on his landing, tome time ago, and Jus-t re turned to St. IjouIs. When Mr. Vernir visited the camp jes terday he found the little p.vgmlcs hud dled together over a camp Ilr. They were shivering from the cold. When they espied Mr. Verncr ihev rushed to him and the three of tho little pigmies em braced him. "Wo are to glad jou have come," sold Luluna, the spokesman of the party, "for wo a:o Buffering from the cold." Mr. Verner looked at them nn.l voiced his disappointment. Instead of the nice tittle palm-leaf Bulls which ho expected to find them wearing, they were clothed In Incongruous coats and Jaokcts. Mr. Verner pacllled them by proinl'lrg them a good, cozy house to 11 vo In, where; they could have a fire to keep them warm all the time. At present they are lhing in a tent. Tho pygmies confided to Mr. .Verner thit they had accepted the klndnes of their neighbors on Indian Hill, who had been good enough to lend them tome blankets to keep them from freezlnr. "Tho temperature In the country they came from," ssid Mr. Verner, "averages about 11 in the shade." The pygmlts nleo complained to Mr. Ver ner of the rudeness of the American peo ple. Luluna said that the people did noth ing but lean on the fenco and nsk ques tions, which they could not understand "When a white man rornea to our country,-" complained Luluna, "we give them presents, sometimes of sheep, goata or birds, and divide our elephant meat with them. The American! treat us as they do our pet monkey. They Inugh at us and poke their umbrellas Into our faces. They do the same to our monkey."

It Is the opinion In military circles here that General Kuropatklu'a situation com pels him to give battle at IJao-Yang whence, owing lo tlm advanced position occupied by O'neral Kurokl, retreating tactics meet with tho gravest difficulties. Hillcvlng this, czcltiment hero Is great, as It Is known the battle will bo iV-clsIve. Concerning Port Arthur wonderful con fidence Is shown.

Including clrfht of ficers killed and twenty-four officers wounded. General Kiiroki's attack upon the lite Lieutenant General Count Keller was timed to forestall the assumption of the defensive on tho part of tho Ru"Htns General Kuroki telegraphs that the Rus sla'ns were gradually re-enforced until they had four divisions. Tho centr moved out on the Llao-Ynng road to Anptng, which Is thirteen miles from Llao-Yang.

He started his army on July 20, sending his right against Yushullkzu and his lift to Yangtzu-Llng, a separate detachment keeping in touch with tho right wing which moved against the Russian left at Yushullkzu. The country at this point Is ft succession of hills and dales, disadvantageous to tho attackers. The Russians showed gTCat In genuity of Intrenching and defending their positions. Frontal and flank attacks were deliv ered trlmultaneously against tho Russians at Yushullkzu nt dawn of Sunday, the Japanese artillery ilrst clearing tho way for the Infantry. This position was cup tured at 9 o'clock In tho morning. .A frontal attack against the Russian cen ter was continued, but tho general ad vance was delayed to await the miccos of tho Japanese left column. Tho Rus sians attempted repeatedly to retake their former positions at Yushullkzu, but tho Japanese repulsed them every time. The Japanese left column encountered tho vanguard of the enemy at Pin-Ling nnd repulsed It. Later, a separate de tachment of Japanese troops flanked and severely punished a heavy detachment of Russians, which was retreating from Pln Llng.

Just how it happened will never be known. The onlj survivor of the; party Is Mary 'llmony, the- &- ear-old daughtkr of Mr. and Mrs. Ptter Timony, of Upper Alton.

Ho hid 1" en teaching her how to swim for suvtral minutes by wading out where the water wus over her head, and then helping her paddle to him. While tho members of the party were thus enjojlng themselves waves from some boat drew the little Reilly girl beyond her depth. Rellly started for her and got hr in his arms.

A few' minutes before 10 o'clock tho bodies of Alice Sjnnr and Michael Rellly were recovered and brought to the police station. Utile Mary Timony said, when seen at her home: "What 1 know is this: Wo were oil llne-d up In a row waiting our turn to be taught by Mr. Relllv how to swim. We had been taking our turns all afternoon. Mr. Rellly was several feet In front and was teaching his daughter how to make tho stroke. All at once a big wave came from a steamboat and washed Elizabeth away from her fither over h!s head. FATHER GOES TO DAUGHTER'S RESCUE. "She went down and Mr. Rellly went lifter her. The rnme wave also knocked u down a moment later. I got on my feot again, and when I stuck m head nbovn water no one was in sight, hut Mr. Rellly and his daughter. Just then nn othcr wave struck him, nnd both went down. Tho snino wave struck me and I went down tho second time. After strug gling hard I again cot onto my feet, and when my head came above water I could me nothing of ony of our party. "I stood In the water almost to my neck and was afraid to move, for fear of stepping In a hole. Some other waves cumo from the boat, but they wcro not no big. I stood there sind screamed for help, hut none came. Finally I got awfully scared and cried, and then I saw a man way up the river In a Kklft. When he got near he culled to mo not to move or I might drown, nnd thut he would reucli me In j minute. "II finally got to vhere I was and pulled me hi a xklff. Ho hurried with me to the shore, anil took me into a store noar the class works. After a few min utes pupa some and brought mo home." Phillip Brum, the father of two drowned girls, sold to-night that tho party had been planned )y the little Rellly girl yesterday. "This morning she came to our house," said Mr. Brum, "and asked If Bessie and Marie would come to her swimming party. My wife asked her about it and she said her fatiicr was going to teach them. My wife and I concluded to let tho children go. When the little Rellly girl came after our girls after dinner my wife said they lnd better stay at home, but they pleaded so we let them go. The ntxt we knew ot tho party was when somo one rang up over the telephone and asked if our Bessie wi3 in the Rellly swimming party. We said cs, and the receiver wus hung up at tho other end. Wo thin knew that some thing awful had hnpppcned, and I started out at once, only to find that tho worst had occurred." Rellly was a blower at the plant of the Illinois Glass Works. Ho leaves a widow and two children. At 10.30 o'clock to-night the body of Lucia Pates was recovcrid and the search ers were still hopeful of getting the other bodies before morning.
