U J Early today neither the state de-
y ; partment nor the navy department
i had received any word of the fight
7l, : at Mazaya and Coyotepe or the death
j I of the American marinoB. Officials
5 were shocked at the news contained
'i in Minister Castrollo's cablegram.
The cablegram to Minister Cas-
ftrillo, dated Managua, October 4. was
as follows;
"Masaya taken today by assault.
We have 100 dead, 200 wounded.
Americans early took Coyotepe with
four dead and six wounded. Correa
' simultaneously took Baranca. Zeledon
fled with his followers and was cap
tured eight leagues from Masaya,
I wounded, and died later. Today I
i visited the American legation to ex-
press deepest sympathy for marines'
death. Granada municipality request-
1 ?d marines bodies for burial at that
city. I beg you express department
of state my deep sympathy. (Signed)

l From the wording of Minister Welt
': f 7el"i3 dispatch today telling of the
J . fight, officials think that tjluejackets
' from the warships under Rear Admlr
4 -, al Southerland also were In the fight.
g .. Minister Weltzol'B dispatch said
2. ffc that the American forces had driven
ft Zeledon and hl8 rebels from the Bar
Ill ranca hills in 37 minutes, but said
1 n nothing of Correa's participating In tho
5 ' battle, mentioned in Chamorro's ca
') , blegram to Mlulster Caatrillo. Mr
Woltzel's dispatch said it was rumor
ed that in Managua that American
marines had been wiled and wound
ed, but gave nothing definite.
Yesterday's dispatches to the stato
department gave notice of an impend
ing battle at Jinotepe. Today dls
patcheB said the Americans were kill
ed and wounded at Coyotope and It
was at first thought they were the
same plnce.
The regiment of marines was on
both sides of Barranco hlllB In com
mand of Colonel John H. Pendleton.
Tho first and second battalions were
between Managua and MaBaya and
nearer .the latter. The third battal
ion was oelween Masaya and Granada
and also nearer Masaya. So It is im
possible to Judge in whicu battalion
tho fatalities occurred, as all were
cloBe to the fighting.
The first battalion was under com
mand of Major William McKelby and
was" composed of companies A, B. C.
and D, drawn from New York, Norfolk,
j Boston, Portsmouth. Annapolis,
CharleBton and Washington
The second battalion under com
mand of Major George C. Reed was
composed of companies E F and G,
drawn from Philadelphia. The third
battalion under command of Major
Smedley D. Butler was drawn from
l.oh Angeles. Oct. 5 Miss Gertrude

failure, not less than $2-13,000 having
been lo3t by rtie organizers, accord

son tickets for that daj- the income
was $34,128, which Is the largest sum
ever taken In Sweden for a public af
fair. Sweden Is not disheartened by the
deficit, ns It was expected from the
start and the country feels well re
paid In having shown the world tho
high degree of her sportsmanship and
management. She was successful In
both of these endeavors and it Ir
considered certain that tho Swedish
government, recognizing these facts,
will not hesitate to place at tho dis
posal of the committee the funds nee.
essary to pay all of Its debts.
It Is expected that the Swedish gov

Biibaldy to the Swedish participants In
the Panama Pacific exposition.
John Ilaramar, managing director of
the Swedish Exportation society, has

Demonstrator Should Be
Placed in Every
Indianapolis, Iud., OcL 3. In an ad
dress before the National Conserxa
tlon CongresH, Howard H. Gross,
president of the National Soil Fertil
ity league, today said that the placing
In" each county throughout the oountry
of a trained farm demonstrator was
tho best vosfiible plan for Improvement
of agriculture In the United States
"Experience hos 6hown that the is
suing of bulletins by the department
of agriculture and the experiment
Btations have little Influence on the
farmer," said Mr. Gross. "They are
not written in the language of the
farm; they have comparatively no
value In reaching the actual tiller of
the soil.
'"We have our farmers' Institutes
and the railways run their lecture
lialns. These have done some good,
but they have all fallen woefully Bhort
of meeting the slutatlon.
"The farmers are tired of talk, talk,
talk; they domand something more.
Show them a concrete example to
prove your contention and If the re
sults are satisfactory they become
Immediately Interested.
"Henco, the time has come when
this vast fund of useful knowledge
muBt bo taken to the farmer In the
personality of a farm demonstrator,
who will meet the farmer on his own
land and show hlra how to understand
and apply the best methods known to
science: talk must go over Into ac
tion. Wo must reach tho present far
mer. "To this end the National Soil Fer
tility leaguo was organized for tho
purpose of eventing a general and
more vital Interest in the subject of
agricultural development and to se
cure the co-operation of the federal
government and the sevoral states,
through colleges of agriculture upon a
plan that will ultimately place in
every county a trained farm demon
strator to assist the farmer to un
derstand and apply the latest and best
methodE of cultivation of their fields.
This is accepted as tho best possible
plan and rapid progress has been
made In Inaugurating It."
