At the Michigan Soldiers' Home, in Grand
Rapids, lives Sergeant Richard Dunn, hale
ana hearty, although he carries the scars of
Several wounds sustained in some of the
atties of the Civil War. In recounting his
experience to a reporter, Mr. Dunn said:
About a year and a half ago I began to
iave trouble with my stomach. My suffer
ing was so intense that I tried different medi
cines and doctored with several physicians,
but without permanent relief:

An amusing story is told of the editor of a

eternal rushing to press to get ahead of the
opposition, was constantly impressing upon
his reporters the necessity of condensing all
A terrible boiler explosion had taken place
on board a big ship lying at Portsmouth.

Railroad stories are all more or less pithy,
especially when told by railroad men. A
certain system running in the southwest is
known for its slow trains from one end of
the line to the other. The trains are slow
enough at best, but when washouts and over
flow occur, time doubles up on engineer,
train crew and passengers. Not long ago a
flood of complaints was poured in upon the
( gereial manager of the line from afi kinds
of people who travel over this system. One
of tb em came from a prominent undertaker,
somewhere in an adjacent state, and this is
what he wrote:
"If you do not run faster trains over your
line you will ruin mv business. Mv custom
ers will not ship their corpses over your
system ior rear that they will not reach

Distribution of the Supplies Sent
to the Sick Soldiers by the
Relief Commission.
Am Alarming; Condition, the Medical Au
thorities Say, Max Be Expected Unless
Barracks Are Provided for the Army
and the Sick Troop Transferred Home
Relief for Cab.
Philadelphia, Aug. 31. The yacht
May, which arrived in this city to-day
from Porto Rico via Newport News,
brought the report of . the representa
tives of the national relief committee
who went to Porto Rico to superintend
the distribution of the supplies sent to
the sick soldiers by the commission.
The May left this city on August 6 and
reached Ponce August 1L The report
states that the commissioners reported
to Gen. Miles and was by him referred
to CoL Greenleaf, chief surgeon of the
army in the field. CoL Greenleaf or
dered the 70 tons of medical supplies
to be taken from the May and placed
in the lower floor of the custom house,
which is now being used as the head
quarters of the army in Porto Rico.
After giving details of the distribution
of the supplies, the report says:
In almost every instance we found army sur
geons most anxious to have at their disposi
tion money for the purchase of needed lux
uries for the sick, such as fresh milk, ice (when
obtainable) and canned goods, and we are hap
py to report that in every case we have been
able to meet the demands made upon us. There
are about 16,000 American soldiers in Porto
Rico and on the day of our departure, August
22, there were over 1.000 men on the sick list.
Of this number one-half were cases requiring
prompt and careful treatment There was a
large number of typhoid cases, but on the 22d
inst this disease was not on the increase, a
fact which indicates that the malady had been
carried from the camp at home and is not in
digenous to Porto Rico. However, there was a
very large increase in diarrhoea, dysentery.
dengue or breakbone fever, and even malarial
disorders, due to the hot, unhealthy rainy sea
son, just commencing, which causes the water
supply to be filled with malarial germs from
constant decaying vegetation.
All medical authorities in the army in Porto
Rico agree that the sick list is increasing and
that an alarming condition may be expected
unless the war department promptly arranges
barracks for the army of occupation and imme
diately provides additional transports (the
hospital ship Relief being insufficient) to re
move such of the sick men as can be safely
transferred home, the convalescents and those
enervated by climate conditions. It is impos
sible for men from a northern climate to recu
perate in a tropical country during its most un
heal thful season. In conclusion, we are glad
to report that we reached Porto Rico with
onr medical and hospital supplies just
at the time when they were most needed
as, owing to the lack of steam launches
with which to unload the vessels in the har
bor and those hard aground on the coral reef.
the medical department could not secure its
supplies promptly and our consignment had
been most carefully selected, containing many
useful articles not supplied in the hospA.il
equipment of the army. We cabled to the Na
tional Red Cross commission on the 22d to for
ward to Porto Rico a consignment of light
groceries, such as condensed cream, cereals.
canned soups, clam broth, etc. : also pajamas
and underclothing, all of which are much
needed in the hospitals and are not obtainable
on the island.
Attached to the report is a letter
from Gen. Miles thanking the commis
sioners on behalf of the army for the
supplies and for a big consignment of
American flags; also a letter from CoL
Greenleaf expressing thanks for the
gift of an ice-making machine, in
which he says:
I cannot adequately express the satisfaction
with which the results of this donation will be
received by the sick. Ice in this country is an
expensive luxury, costing 130 per ton in Porto
Rican money, which necessitates the exercise
of rigid economy on the part of our medical
officers in its use. To have the output of such
a machine at our disDOsal is a blessing, the
benefits of which can only be appreciate d by
those who have served in these hospitals.
Keller Supplies for Cuba.
New York, Aug. 31. A cablegram
from Miss Clara Barton at Havana to
the central Cuban relief committee
said that she needed a steamship to
use in the distribution of supplies and
Stephen E. Barton, chairman of the
committee, has chartered the San An
tonio from C H. Mallory & Co. for two
months with the privilege of extend
ing the time to six months. The San
Antonio is a sister ship of the State of
Texas, which was in Miss Barton's
service during May, June and July.
Her capacity is about 800 tons. She
will be loaded with Cuban relief sup
plies and will sail probably on
Thursday in charge o. Capt. Young,
who was the commanding officer
of the state of Texas, while in Miss
Barton's service. Several agents will
go on the ship to assist in the re
lief work. It has not yet been deter
mined to what port the ship will go
first to report to Miss Barton, but it
will probably go to Havana as Miss
Barton has a large quantity of sup
plies there. The plan will be to touch
at all Cuban ports, giving special at
tention first to those on the north
coast which have had no relief since
the outbreak of the war. The cargo
of the San Antonio will include a gen
eral assortment of food and clothing
similar to what has been sent on prer
vious shipments.
