Watts, th Hero of TienUinWho Made the Wonderful Bide For SlN FRANCISCO, Aug. 7. Among the passengers on the transport Logan were the two children of the Unit ed States Consul at J. W. Ragsdale. Earl, the elder, is fifteen years old, while his sister, Effie, Is thir teen years of age. They were In through all the days when it seemed probable that no white person would escape therefrom with his life, and now they hare returned to this country, on their way to their home in Santa Rosa, for safety. They came alone; their fatlrei must remain at his post, and the another chose to stay and share any danger that might come to him. The boy. Earl, is a fine, manly fellow, unusually large for his age, and he feels that the latter fact brought him goor fortune. "I was in luck," he said; "my size enabled me to volunteer as nineteen years old false pretences, you know and so I carried a gun and did some shooting with the rest in defense of the women and children." The girl Effiie, is a brown-haired, maiden, and loquacious, as her sex gives her the right to be. She talks very graphically of her experiences, and tells with manifest pride how a fragment of shell struck her, tearing her stocking and slightly scratching her leg. "We have lived in two and one-half years." they said. "During all of that time, but especially since last November, we were warned by the Chinese servants, who were friendly, that a movement was on foot to an- whites. We thought nothing of it. Everybody said: 'Oh, let them come on; we will drive them out easily enough;' but everybody was too sure. "On June 6th our Chinese servants said the Boxers would attack the European concession in town that night, and most of the whites sat up all night The Boxers did not come then, but the scare was kept up until two Chinese missions were burned on June 14th. On the next day our servants left us, and then everybodv believed that serious trouble was right at hand. "It came that very night About midnight there was a rattling and banging at our gate, and the marine who was there called to us that we must go to Gordon Hall a large stone building at once, as the Boxers were upon us. It was a terrible sight thau we then looked upon from our wid ows, ine French concession was en ure, and so was the native village across from the station. At the latter, Russian troops were fighting the Boxen. "We dressed as hurriedly as we might and went to the hall, but nobodv was there, aad, as the alarm bell had not been rung, the doors were locked. "While we were huddled together, listening to the sounds of battle, some one ran by and shouted: 'The Boxers are coming over the river on the German bund.' This was just two streats from us, and if ever you saw scared people, they were there. Tou see, this was before we got used to being scared. Later we were so accustomed to it that we did not mind it so much. It was a terrible scene musketry volleying, rickshaws loaded with household goods hurrying to the hall, men running, women screaming, everybodv expecting to be killed. "At 9 o'clock the battling ceased for a time, and we went home, but return-? ed to the hall for the night "The men were on guard, most of the women were crying and all of the bies werehowling. But the battle iras; not resumed. The next day we went, home for a little while, but we did not stay long. "We were sitting on the veranda shortly after tiffin, when, about 3 o'clock, I heard the queerest noise ever' I heard" Effie is telling the story nowyj 'it "was for all the world as if a greats. big whistle were flying through the air. Then the whistling stopped, there was a crasn ana I saw the corner of an house quite near us go flying where. Then my father came and said it was a shell that struck quite near us; that we werebelng fired upon from the Chinese Viceroy's fort, and must hurry to Gordon Hall. "We didn't stop to get & uung. i ran aoont ait the. way. "Shrinking, horrified and pecting that some shell might find them in this blackness, the women and chil dren remained in a cellar during all of J the leng, fearful hours while the shells were flying about the halL We could Sear vague sounds of turmoil above but all we could do was to wait in Cfce gloom and hope for the best. The shelling lasted through much of two days, and we were kept in the dun-4 eeon durinxr this time. "The hero of was a youns man named James Watts. On June ISth, while the battle was on and shells J were aoout us, he, -with three Cossacks, started to carry a message to the Admirals at Takn. The,message rad: 'Shelled continually. Ammunition aad snpplles getting short Send help at once or all lost' He was chased by the Boxers and narrowly escaped, bat finally reached the Admirals, after being oa horseback from S In the evening till 8 in the morning, going tkrottgk two CkhMMceaaf aad several TiDajea. wkere he would have been allied If he bad been. seen, when he rjbinMd, oa Jane 23d, with ISO Amerl- SSf.l5Kft;0B UILIIT 110 UNO CO. uuajij iixjt. nia uo. iceir scozijrs asa carried hsa ima the haO. June ISti was a most terrible day. and the women and children did ot know hoir near they were to death. A battle was oa near the railroad brides. as well as another on the other side nl town. Earl took part la the former. "The volunteers he says, "started in de direction away from the bridge, in orcer to astst the allies there. We were driven back and then went to the I assistance of our troops at the lailroad bridge. Onr arrival turned the scale in favor of the allies, and the Chinese were repulsed. That repulse- was the salvation of the Tromen and children, and of us all, for that matter. Under the arrangements which had been made if the allies were defeated the woman and children were to have been sent to Taku under such escort as could be provided. If they reached there, well and good; if they did not. ten soldiers had been named they had volunteered for the service to kill everv last I man and child of them alL So vou see haw much that victory at the railroad bridge meant" Well, relief finally arrived, as the world knows, the Peiho river was- patrolled and on the 2d it was deemed safe to send some of the people from Tien-Tsin to Taku. On the first boat Vent these two children and their mother, the latter to return to her husband and the former to make the long homeward journey alone. "From Tien-Tsin to Taku," said the little girl, "is sixty-five miles, and in that distance we passed the dead bodies of 1200 or 1300 Chinese floating in the river. I suppose they were the bodies of Boxers, who had learned that no magic could enable them to spit out the bullets from European guns. It was terrible to see their ghastly dead faces slowly floating with the current" Thus naively and childishly did Effie sum up the entire story: "However exciting the whole time was, I do not think I would care to experience it again." Few would. -v NEGOTIATING FOR THEIR SDRRENDER. Alejandrino Pretends That Luzon . Insurrectors are Anxious to . . Lay Down Their Arms. NEW YORK, August 7. A cable to the Sun from Hongkong says: Manila advices to the Filipino junta assert that General ilacArthur and General Ale jandrino, a leading rebel commander, are negotiating for the surrender, under the amnesty proclamation, of the insurgent forces in Central Luzon. These rebel forces include those under Colonels Lucana and Tecson, who last Wednesday captured Lieutenant of the engineer corps and eleven cavalrymen. Diligent inquiries at Army headquarters in Manila, failed to confirm the report of any such negotiations being en foot It is known, however, that MacArthur has been in constant conference with rebel politicians and military leaders with the object of bringing about peace, otherwise than by ing. On Saturday last General Mac-Arthur, with an escort of officers, went to San Fernando and met Alejandrino at a conference, which had previoubly been arranged. According to the Filipinos, Alejandrino then made his offer to surrender the Central Luzon rebel commands and also to produce under certain conditions, which were not made public. The result of the- conference is not known. At its conclusion Alejandrino returned to the mountains. MVST WEAR A COAT. Chicago Hotel Refuses to Accept the Shirt Waist Man. Chicfago, Aug. 7. Chicago has littlo sympathy for the shirt waistivhich has become so popular in the East as an article of masculine wearing el. Local hotel keepers generally condemn the shirt waist and it is also tabooed around the prominent -clubs. The feeling of the boniface in this respect was demonstrated beyond a doubt today when a young Easterner attempted to eat breakfast In the Auditorium hotel dining room. He was at tired in a shirt waist of Eastern pattern, a pair of white trousers and he wore no coat The head waiter of the dining room promptly requested him to withdraw and Manager O. E. Tripp lacquiesced in the waiter's judgment, later when complaint was made to him. , Stuyvesant French of New Yonc was the name given by the jvg man who tried to set a precedent in shirt waists 1n Chicago. His shirt waist was de cidedly noticeaoie, oeing or a creamy color. Mr. French's trousers were of flannel. A pair of patent leather shoos -completed the make-up. He was no eooner seated in the dinjng room than the head waiter hastened to his side f'and asked him to withdraw, which he did in high dudgeon amid the laughter of the guests. A Minister's Good Work.

Power, of Emporia, Ivan "My neighbor across the street was sick for over a week, had two or three bottles of medicine from the doctor.

He said his bowels were In a terrible fix,"tbat they had been running ofc so long that it was almost bloody flux.
