Reynolds, a Welllugton Boy of Company M, 14th United 8tates In fantry Tells Some of His Experiences on the Tr p to Manilla. . ; ' Steamer City of Pueblo.' : Aug. 12th;, 1898.. On the Pacific, 2,500 miles from Hon olulu, 4,000 miles from San Francisco, 2,300 miles from Manilla and 6,900 miles from home, I will endeavor to write you. We have not had a bard storm since we left Honolulu. I think that thore are some letters on board our ship for me but the mall bags cannot be opened un til we get to Manilla, as they contain through mail. , , It is a hot day. but we have a good ocean breeze. We have left the Pent and the Pennsylvania; we are about 18 hours ahead of them. We expect to arrive at Manilla in about a week from Sunday. When the 14th United States Infantry reaches there, look out, boom! boom! Saturday, 3 p. m. -We are looking for land this afternoon, as we are nearlng the Ladronw. We stop there to let off some attiu-liud nieu of Company F. The first expedition took these inlands and left three companies thure. Wo have about 1,500 miles further to go after reaching the islands, then we will be with Dewey. The Peru is along side of us today. They are quite close and" have uncovered their guns, which are artill ery. ; We have two on each boat and one good shot would wipe us oft the earth. August 15. We have been looking for land and at last saw what was once a valcano, but it is now inact've. There are three other islands that we can see, which are ulso mountainous. About 500 of the 1000 soldiers on this ship are from Ohio; one of the boys being from Nor walk and another from New Loudon and a large number from Cleveland and Cin cinnati. August 18. Well, we are now looking tor the north end of the Philippines. At noon today, we were 4,100 miles from Honolulu, so you see we are nearing our destination. We will land at Cavite, about 10 miles from Manilla, under the protection of Dewey's guns, unless Ma nilla has surrendered, since we loft the commenced firing volleys Into the under brush they very soon scattered, but they lost 75 killed and 150 wounded. The TO ABW)r naiwry. or mew York, lost 2; idano Vol. Inf. 14, U. 8. Inf. 3, and in all we had about 25 wounded. I lost enough skin off my right little finger to lay me up awhile, and will probably have a scar, but it is healing nicely. It will take a month for this to reach you, I guess, and I hope we will start home by that time, for everything is set tled with the Spaniards, and I don't be lieve the insurgents will give us any more trouble. ' ' We have the Spanish barracks to sleep In, and the bay is close by to bathe in. There is only one thing I dislike, and that lithe voyage home. It gets tire- o be on the water so long. , souie'io IN MEDINA COUNTY. 1k Royal Is the highest oreee hakiaf ptm4f fcaowa. ActmM test show It feee tkki further Um eey ther fcreod. ' GOOD ROAD MOVEMENT BEING AGGITATED. IS Township School Contest. The Non-Partisan W. C. T. U., of Lorain County offers an reward con sisting of a silk banner to the township school in the county which shall give the highest per cent of correct answers to questions submitted by the Union, in physiology, and the effects of alcohol and narcotics on the human system. Following are the conditions; 1. While teachers shall be at liberty to prepare their schools for this test by the , use of any temperance physiology adopted by the school boards of various townships in which they teach, by Mrs, Mary H. Hunt and her advisory board of scientific experts, and would further call special attention to the "School Physiology Journal" and "Temperance Teaching for Boys and also Girls," as valuable reference books in preparing their oral work. 2. The Union will arrange for a written examination to be held in the respective school houses of the compet ing ' schools, February selecting such questions only as may be covered by any accepting temperance physiology. 3. A represenatlve will visit each competing school upon the day specified ta carry the questions (sealed),' which hall be the same for all schools, and be present during the examination, at the close of which all papers shall, without inspection, be enclosed in sealed enve lope and mailed at once to the examiner, whose address will appear on the list of questions. The result will be announc ed in such manner as shall be determln- ed t the committee,- but of which com- and meet all compe tition in our line of trade.

I Ox i-ii t mt ill me oiars ana stripes, ine uaiue-cry will be "Remember the Maine." We had a funny thing happen this morning at 2:00 o'clock. The bugle called "Assembly to Arms." Every man was on deck, with his gun and arms, in less time than it takes me to write it, wondering what was going on. This was the first time we ever had the call, as and it was given to see what we would do. Major Robes praised us very highly for getting out so quick, considering it was a new call, and said he knew he could depend upon us where ever he put us. On the 16th the Peru lay about fif teen miles north of us, and about 2:00 o'clock there came the boom of a cannon and we knew there was something wrong, so we made our way toward her and could see she had her flag half-mast, and we knew somebody was dead. When we arrived there something white was thrown into the air and a splash, and a man was buried at sea. Our signal corps got out their flags and asked who it was and the reply came back that it was one of the crew, a Chlneese. We were glad that it was not one of the sol diers. We have another inspection this afternoon and I must go. August 19. we are almost to our Journey's end; we came in sight of the north end of Philippines at 3:30 this af ternoon. There were three ships in sight this forenoon; they turned out to be German barges. There is any quan tity of land in sight now and we have only 300 or 400 miles to go down the China sea to Manilla, which we will all be glad to reach. August 21. We are at last with Dew ey. We arrived oft Manilla bay last night at 12.-00 and entered the bay this morning. We are in sight of the city, and only a quarter of a mile from Dew eys flagship. There are battleships of every description all around us, and they music at belong to Dewey 8 fleet. The flagship has just pulled np beside us and we re ceive the news that Manilla surrendered a week ago yesterday, but Cavite remanis yet to be taken. Dewey started to bom bard the city, and Merritt on the land, and it took just fifteen minutes to make them surrender. We land tomorrow. Manilla, August 26. We had quite a time at the battle of the Waterworks, four miles from the city, with the in surgents Tuesday and Wednesday night. They have an aggravating way of fight ing. They get into the underbrush and all you can see of them Is a little puff of Bmoke. Tuesday night at 110 we were ordered out to strengthen the out-post, and every little while one could hear the bullets go zip, zip, and at 70 o'clock next morning we formed two battalions ahead as a sklrmhih line, and we could not lee a thing to sho rt, but whiawf be as low not only for 30 but for all time to come.

A Letter from the Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, as to What is Being- Done in Litchfield, to the Medina Gasette. In reply to an inquiry from the Ga zette, H. E. Leach of Litchfield, chair man of the board of county commission ers, gave this explanation in his own words of what was being attempted in the way of permanent road building: Editor Gazette: In reply to your in quiry about what is being done in the county for the permanent improvement of some of our.worst pieces of road, I will say that the commissioners have made the proprosition to some of the trustees of . the townships that they would bear one-half of the cost of the ' lime stone or slag delivered at the depots in the county if the people along the road to be fixed would put the roadbed In condition and deliver the crushed stone from the cars on to the road without expense to the town or county. We learned that we could buy crushed lime stone for 38 cents a cubic yard at Bluffton. But the L E. & W. R. R. wanted 80 cents a ton rate, but by earnest work with the company we final ly got the rate of 50 cents a torn ny where on their road in the county. And the agent in Medina of the C. L. & W. R. R. agrees to deliver slag anywhere on that railroad In the county at 50 cents a ton and $2.50 a carforoading.' 'The people of Litchfield and the trustees of that township also have ac cepted our proposition and have begun making a road between the depot and the town. They will macadamize about 100 rods this fall. -They have it about finished now. "The trustees of Liverpool expect to begin their road between the depot and the town this fall. "I have not heard what h&s been done in York. They are very anxious to have that road macadamized through the Burnam flats. H. E. Leach." Litchfield has Began. The township of Litchfield has been the first to meet the commissioners' proposition and get to work. As a result that town now has- a fine macadamized road from its center to the Northern Ohio depot, formerly a bad stretch of horse-killing mud road. The Way They Build It.' In Litchfield the macadam road is of crushed Bluffton limestone, nine feet wide and a foot thick. Two good ditches are made at either side of the road, and the road is leveled before the crushed stone is put on. This Bluffton stone has the property of solidifying under the pressure of wagon traffic, so it does not sink in the clay but makes a pavement. The property owners of Litchfield turned out with good public spirit to haul the stone from the cars and to prepare the road bed. Now they have an ample re ward and have Bet a good example for the whole county. Cost of the Book Road. The county commissioners inform the Gazette that the stone costs 38 cents a cubic yard on board the cars at Bluffton, Allen county, 0., and the freight to Med ina county is 50 cents per ton. This would make macadam road like Litch field's which is nine feet wide and one foot thick cost about $2.75 a rod, (rough estimate) exclusive of labor furnished grati sby those living along the road.
