Now on to Mu A R 0 uu zri THE LATEST FROM THE SCENE OF ACTION, Chakleston, S. C, July 20. The first expedition to follow Gen. Miles to Porto Krico from here left about seven o'clock this evening. The expedition is under command of Maj.-Geu. J. II. Wilson and when complete will consist of the Second and Third Wisconsin, the Sixteenth Pennsylvania regiments and two Companies from the Sixth Illinois. These men, together with those of the Sixth Illinois and Sixth Massachusetts, which sailed from here last week for Santiago, constitute tho first brigade of the first division of the first army corps. The scene which accompanied the departure of tho vessels from their docks was one of indes cribable enthusiasm. As the vessels made the stream, the bands on shipboard and ashore played the national airs and thousands of people cheered like mad. Tho expedition will sail direct for Porto llico. From Santiago, July 20. Hundreds of Spanish and American soldiers, who but a few days ago were shooting at each other, crowd the streets of Santiago today, meeting and mixing on the most friendly terms. Quaint stores, with gaudy displays of wares, are opening rapidly, and the store-keepers are eagerly ac. cepting Americans money and courteously receive American customers. The American physicians say tho dangers from yellow fever are about passed. Camp Eaton, Island Lake, Mich., July 20. It is probable that the Thirty fifth Michigan will be complete this week. There are now only two companies to be mustered in, F. and .7. The former is delayed on account of Capt. Atkinson being made a major of the third battalion, and tho latter on account of Capt. Scranton being in Cuba. Chief Musician Ward of Alma is fast perfecting tho band of the Thirty-fifth and has a most excellent organization of musicians. CmcAMAi'GA, Ga., July 20. The Thirty-first Michigan is expected to leave here for Porto llico Thursday or Friday, although nothing is officially known as to what the orders realy are.

II. B. Jefferson, officiating. Chas. G. Randall and Henry Young of Chicago acted as ushers, and Wm. G. Sickel, from tho same place and brother of the groom, acted as best man, while Samuel T. Douglas of Detroit gavo the bride away. She was very tastily gowned in white satin and chiffon. The church was ap propriately decorated with lillies and palms. Miss Gertrude Whiting filled the position of organist and beautifully rendered the Intermezzo, (from Caval leria Rusticana) MiMifjni, the Wedding March from Lohengrin, Waynt-r, with Andante by Chopin, followed by the Wedding March by alticUshn.

Since her father's death Miss DeRussy has lived in Detroit with her mother with the exceptions of what time they have ppent here at The Alma, Mrs. DeRussy being an invalid part of the time. It wau at Tho A. ma tho happy couplo first met and tho friendship was formed which later ripened into love and was consummated yesterday by their marriage. The groom, Mr. John Trust Sickel, is a prominent man on tho Hoard of Trade of Chicago and is well and favorably known in social circles in that city. He came to Tho Alma for "Health and Rest" and it was at this institution he met his fate. After the wedding ceremony the in vited gu'ts were given a reception at "Saravilla" by Dr. and Mrs. J. II. Lancashire. The entire party accom panied by the bridal ronple left on the -I: 20 Ann Arbor train south for Detroit. After an extended wedding tour the happy couple will make their home in Chicago. Porto Kico. aura From One of the 32d Boys. The following letter was written by Milton Holmes with the 32d Mich., at Tampa, to his mother and was very kindly handed us for publication. In Camp, Tampa Fla., July 15, 1898. My Di:ak Mothkk: I couldn't writo you yesterday because I was on guard and it rained all day and night. There were three reliefs so you seo I was on two and off four hours. The rain came down in torrents and I rolled up in my rubber blanket and slept in a small lake. I am having lots of de lightful experience, don't you think? I slept fairly well in the lake however and I woke up much easier than when occupying my comfortable bed at home. Don't think you wi 1 have to call me so many times in the morning when I re turn. I hear many of the boys say they will enjoy the comforts of home much better after such experience, although our boys are nearly crazy to move toward the front since the wounded have been sent in from Santiago. They tell a dif ferent story about the battle than you see in the papers. They say tho Span iards fired on the Red Cross and Am bulance Corps and they were exposed to their fire while being carried to the rear. There are about three hundred and fifty wounded here now and some have gone on north. Some of tho wounded boys aro in an awful hurry to get well so they can go back. They say they will show the Spaniards the same kind of mercy they were shown. Yesterday I talked all the afternoon with one of the Ionia boys of the 33d Reg. who was in the battle. He was wounded twice in tho head but refused to be sent home. He is going back to join his Company again as soon as he is well enough. Ho knew me at once but I did not re cognize him. He told me he was the fellow that played against me in the foot ball game at Ionia last fall and of course wo were acquainted at onco and had a splended visit. When we see their wounds and talk with them wo are anxious to get out of this mud hole and movo on toward the front. We are nearly flooded out here. It has rained hard for three days. Harlock and I worked all day last Sunday putting a floor in our tent to keep out water, dirt and disease. Da you think it was wrong to work on Sunday in such a causa? We expect to bo moved out of this rotten place in a few days, where wo do not know but must leave as lots of the boys aro getting sick. Thro aro fivo from our Company iu the hospital. I am as well as usual but don't weigh quito as much as when I left home. Yours with love, Milton. From Camp Thomas. Camp Thomas, Ga., July 10, 1S98. Editoh Rf.cohd: I thought possibly you would like to know how we are getting along. I am about the only representative here, with the exceptions of two who aro in the JUst Mic h., Frank Stallknecht, and Will Spicer. I have been over to see them three times I think. I was over and spent last Sunday afternoon with them It makes me fuel gfd to even look n Michigan man in the face. The boys are enjoying themselves and were more jubilant than ever Sunday as they were being paid. I was about three days COfSOf Si You can buy the cheapest Corset ever offered in Alma.

Wo drew our government pay but the state has not paid us anything yet. None of us have anything to kick about what we have to eat, for I believe we are fed as good as auy. Our troop has oat meal, milk, sugar, bacon and potatoes fried and coffee for breakfast. At dinner we have cabbage soup, tomato, roast beef, brown gravy, and nearly every other day some kiud of pudding. Then for 6upper we have good hash, cold baked beans and tea. You can see that our canteen pays in more ways than one. Wo have not had hardtack but two times since we came here the first of June. Bread conies to the commissary warm. We could not stand the work we have to do if it were not for good eating. We are called at 4.30 in tho morning, have breakfast at 5:00 and go to tho stable to groom, water and saddle our horses for drill and go to drill at 6:00. Then we have mounted drill, first with carbines than sabre. We then dismount and fight on foot. We have from 11:30 until 3 :00 o'clock to rest aud then go out again and stay until 5 :00. Wo then come in and get ready for dress parade which comes every evening at six o'clock. To a person who never 6aw a regiment of cavalry all mounted and fully equipped it is a sight that one don't for get. We have squadron drill in the morning about every third day and thero is where you seo your rough rid ing, l ten you I naa no idea a cavairy charge was so fierce until I was in one. Let a person seo 300 men all mounted with sabres drawn, at the top of a horse's speed, coming towards you and it will rnako you want to get out of the way. It is hard telling when we will get away from here but are iu hopes soon as nil of the boys are anxious to see somo active service We have had some terrible hot weather and also very dry but last night it rained a littlo and has been some cooler. One goxl thing about this place is no matter how hot it is in the day it gets cool enought to sleep under a blanket at night. I suppose things aro petting along flue iu Alma and all are still talking war and polities. Wh.it are tho Repub licans going to do this fall? Hope they win out. I think that we have them on the run in our county. I would liked to have stayed to help the boys out at home but I hope I can do more good where I am.
