I fc Won't Assemble In Hampton Road*. Washington, Aug. 22.-£-Orders were Issued by the navy department Mon day which will prevent the assemblage of any large fleet at Hampton Roads. The large warships will be, sent to New York and Boston and torpedo boats at Newport, R. I. The only ships to remain at Fortress Monroe are auxiliary cruisers and tugs.

'Anxious to lie MuHtercd Out* Washington, Aug. 22.—The war ^department has not yet made out its list of regiments to be mustered out of the service, but has been in constant correspondence with various sections .of the. country, upon th subject. A* first it was thought that the demand to remain in the service wi.uld prove embarrassing to the department, as so many troops desired to continue in service. It is now believed that there ha? been a change of sentiment anil the officers and men of regiments that see no possibility of further fighting art willing to go baeU to their avoca tions. Some want to go to the new possessions, but others, it said, see no glory-in policing Santiago and other captured points .where tl^ere is noth ing to do. Some of the troops are also becoming weary of camp life. The First Alabama, it is understood, has been selected for mustering out at its own request. Don't Want the Guns. Washington, Aug. 22.—Ordnance of ficers are really relieved that they will not have the care of the small arms captured at Manila, which, by the terms of surrender, are to be re turned to the Spanish soldiers when they evacuate .the city.*' It is stated by officers of experience that it would not be profitable for the United States to secure ammunition supplies for a different kind of gun, where there were only a small number such as those cap tured at Santiago, or which might liave been captured at Manila. If 50, 000 or 100,000 stands of arms were taken, then the United States might work profitably in the matter of sup plying them, with ammunition difEer ent from the regular arm which has been adopted for the troops and which Is now in use. The ordnance bureau had an opportunity to select the .Mau ser when the Krag-Jorgen.st-n arm was chosen. The officers who made the examination found defects in the Mauser, which gave the other gun the preference. They believe that the in troduction of a small number of Bmall arms into the army of different make and caliber would do more harm than good, and that in the end the expenses would more than make up for the temporary saving that might follow the use of the captured arms, Sick Soldiers ut I'latiuburg*. Plattsburg, X. V., Aug. SJ2.—Nineteen sick and wounded soldiers have ar rived from New York and are now com fortably settled in the new quarters ut the Plattsburg barracks.

THE VOTING CONTESTS. The REVIEW has made arrangements by which it offers its readers an oppor tunity to vote for their favorites among the young ladies of the county. We know there are many, bright, intelli gent girls who would like to obtain ail education but the cost stands in the way. There are others to whom the community would gladly testify their appreciation for their helpfulness. There are the teachers in cur public and Sabbath schools, the organists, the singers, who gladly lend their talents upon ditleienl occasions, the obliging accommodating clerks, the girls upon the tarin who do their woik so faith fully, the girls who are employed in household duties—none are barred from 'lie contests, and they will surely ap preciate vour votes whether they gam the pri/es or not. Show your esteem by voting for some such young lady in your neighborhood, ask your friends to vote for them. It may be the turning point in their lives which will lead to a nobler and better womanhood. If yoyr neighbor does not take the REVIEW get him to try it until November 1st. You will be doing him a 'kindness by intro ducing the REVIEW into his home and he can help the young lady of his choice by voting his coupons. Send in your votes early so as to encourage the con testants. Write a letter to the REVIEW placing some deservingly popular girl in nomination and thus call the atten tion of her other friends that they may work with you. This is also a splendid opportunity tor an energetic young lady by seeing her friends and securing their votes to get six months' schooling free of charge.

The prizes will be awarded at the coun ty fair and we hope you will all be there. It you come the tair will be a -up-cess. Let us hear trom you. ASST SURGEON BOYLE. i)r II. A.
