LONDON, March 13. The death of
Sir George Chetwynd Saturday at
Monte Carlo recalls the most famous
love story of the Victorian era, which
has a special American interest from
the fact that the baronet's heir,
George Guy Chetwynd, marled In 1002
the beautiful American girl, Rosa

New York lawVer. who. however.
divorced him. 'This story of love and
the. turf Is recalled by a dally as fol

figure on the turf and In the pbl5

against' Lord, Durham for a speech
at a club in which the peer criticised
the running of Sir George's horse Ful

The jockey club refused to Investi
gate the matter, and Sir George
brought suit against Durham for
20,000 ($100,000) damages.

the baronet's horses that they award

ordered each side to pay its own
"Sir George took this as a slur upon
him and resigned from the Jockey
club. His jockeys was subsequently
warned off the turf.
"Sir George's turf career had a ro
mance. He married In 1870 the Mar
chioness of Hastings, who died In

Commander Belknap, in charge of
the American marines landed at San
tiago, Cuba, cabled the Navy De
partment today. "All quiet."
Press dispatches from Havana to
day say L. A. Ward, a member.of the
American colony at La Gloria. Cama
guey Province, has reached Havana
and reports the colony in a desper
ate condition as a Result of he dep
redations of bands of rebels in the
Cubltaa Valley. A
Ward bought his way through the
rebel lines wjth two bottles of rum
and promptly on his arrival went to
William Gonzales, the American
minister, bearing the colony's prayer
for relief. Gonzales at once cailea
on President Menocal and "the latter

Camaguey Province to make an ef"

"There are a thousand to fifteen
hunderd rebels around La Gloria."
said Ward, "and they are concentrat
ing In the Cubltas Valley, which was
a stronghold of the Cuban rebels In
the early uprising- against Spain.
The only provisions obtainable by
this unorganized mob, four-fifths of
whom are- negroes, are in the vari
ous American colonies in the Nge vi
tas district, of which La Gloria is one.
The . rebels are gradually getting
bolder and more desperate as they
grow hungrier, and while at "first
they only robbed outlying farms and
homes of Americans, they are gradu

now at the very door of the town' of

very serious, because If some Amer

Minister Gonzales 'took, the matter
un wUh Captain Sprlngle, of the
transport DlxleTwho Is In touch. with
the American warship elf - the
Nuevltaa coast, and confidence was
expressed that American marines
could reach La Gloria inslde.of twenty-four
hours. The worst of It Is
that the town Is short of supplies and
the rebels do not believe the. Ameri
can statements that all the canned
goods have. been consumed.
' Among. the Americana whose homes
already have been raided are Messrs.
Franydln. Carr, Hutcbens, Duckworth,
Taylor. Mayo, Corliss, and Glbbs, far
mers and members of American colo
nies at Columbia, Canasl, Palm City
and Garden City. All these, Ward
says, have been warned that next
week their homes will be burned and
they themselves killed.

Many whose eyes, were falling say
they have had their eyes .restored by

says, after using' it: "I was almost
blind. Could not see to read at all.
Now I can read everything without
my glasses and my eyes do not hurt
any more. At night they would pain
dreadfully. Now fhey feel fine all the
tim. It was like a miracle to me."
A'lady who used it says: "The at
mosphere seemed hazy with pr with
