strength of 128 men to a company.
Including the 19th infantry, under
orders for Manilla, and troops at
San Francisco there are 4,000 ready

THE ARMIES AT SAN FERNANDO.
Manilla, July 1.?10.40 a. m.?A
collision between the two armies at
San Fernando seems inevitable soon.
The insurgents are active all around
f
the town and can be seen working in
the trenches to strengthen their position.
Day and night forces are at .
work. It is estimated that three ;
thousand men were seen marching ,
in the road north of the city yesterday
morning. *
The Americans turned out and
manned the defences, expecting an
attack. The soldiers sleep in their 1
clothes and breakfast at 4 o'clock in <
the morning, so as to be ready for ^
another daybreak assault.

The High Tide at Gettysburg.
By an Ex-Confederate Soldier. j
(Members of Grant Post of the:
Grand Army of the Republic lately j
made, with their families, a visit to,
the battlefield of Gettysburg. The ;
occasion brought to the minds of:
some of them the really great poem j
by a Confederate soldier, published i
on the twenty-fifth anniversary of j
the battle.)
A cloud possessed the hollow field,
The gathering battle's smoky shield.
Athwart the gloom the lighting flashed,
And through the cloud some horsemen
dashed,
And from the heights the thunder
pealed.
Then at the brief command of Lee,
Moved out that matchless infantry,
With Pickett leading grandly down,
To rush against the roaring crown
Of those dread heights of destiny.
For heard above the angry guns,
A cry across the tumult runs?
The voice that rang through Shiloh's
woods
And Chickamauga's solitudes.
The fierce South cheering on her
sons!
Ah, how the withering tempest blew
Against the front of Pettigrew!
A Kainsin wind that scorched and
singed
Like that infernal flame that fringed
The British squares at Waterloo!
A thousand fell where Kemper led:
A thousand died where Garnett bled;
in blinding flame and strangling
smoke
The remnant through the batteries
broke
\nd crossed the works with Armistead.
4Once more in Glory's van with me!"
^irtrinia cried to Tennessee;
'We two together, come what may,
Shall stand upon t hese works today!"
The reddest day in history.)
Brave Tennessee! In reckless way
Virginia heard her comrade say:
'Close round this rent and riddled
- rag!"

\.mid the guns of Doubleday.

BURDEN OF THE VEST.
Roosevelt says the West Holds the Future
of the Nation.
Milwaukee, Wis., June28.?Gov.
Roosevelt, who is visiting in this
city, was escorted to the Milwaukee
chamber of commerce to-day just
before tiie hour of closing and given
an enthusiastic reception. In addressing
the bulls and bears he said:
"At the end of the nineteenth century,
as this cofantry moves along on
the road to greatness, she has many
serious problems to face, and when
she needs men to carry out Irer purpose
she can call upon men of the
best thought and wisdom, just such
t ,,
men as i am now iiuuiettamg. mu
of the great West hold in your hands
the future of this nation. It rests
with you and you will, I know, show
yourselves equal to the task.
"We always have with usourhoine
problems, and we should aim always
to get into public life men of
courage, of common sense and of
honesty. No amount of genius or
brilliancy can atone for a lack of the
element of fearlessness, of decency
and horse sense, and no one or two
of these will avail unless the man
has all three. The ablest man alive,
if corrupt, is a danger to the country
or community to just the extent of
his brilliancy and ability, and you,
gentlemen, are in honor bound to
allow him to feel the weight of your
Hiaonnrnva!
u,olTl"v
"I don't care how brave a man is,
if he is a natural-born fool, he is not
worth knocking in the head.
"If a man is lacking in common
honesty, he is not fit for public life,
no matter how brilliant he may be.
"We have certain important
foreign problems which confront us.
The United States has evidently as
great a destiny on the Pacific as on
the Atlantic ocean, and, whether we
live on the former or the latter, we
must be equally interested in the
welfare of the nation upon every
foreign question: We should all see
that the nation rises on the Atlantic,
and we have a right to demand of all
good citizens to stand by the president.
"We want to make it understood
that while we fear no nations and
shirk no duty, we desire above all
things peace, and we feel that there
are three great nations which have
interests together. These are
\merica, England and Germany.
-These should work hand in hand for
the solution of the questions that
now confront us in the Pacific."J ?

deposit has been discovered on the line
of the Santa Fe railroad near the town
of Hutchinson, in the central part of
the state, which the local geologists
claim to be the largest in the world.
More than $3,000,000 has already been
invested in plants to purify jt, and the
output last year reached nearly 2,000,000
barrels. The members of the Mulvane
family of Topeka, who are heavy
landowners, bankers and proprietors of
the Topeka Captial, are the largest salt
operators in the state, but George Gould
and his brothers of New York are also
heavily interested. Frank Gould, the

who has only recently reached his majority,
is having his first business experience

Closed Home Preerntlona.
A bouse that is tcTbe closed during
the summer sboald have sheet iron
screens fitted into each open grata This
will prevent the soot sifting down into
the room, as it might easily do with
nobody to look out for it Another caution
is to see that the ice box is left
perfectly empty, with the exception of
a shallow dish filled with charcoal, and
that the doors stand wide open. One
more precaution is that any kerosene
larriTM left in the house should be tbor
oughly cleaned, the wicks taken out
and burned and the burners and fixtures
boiled in soda water, to be left
absolutely clean. Nothing is more permeating
and offensive than the smell
from stale oil.
Shot a Ballet Through * r latlron.
A public exhibition of the force of a
common Mauser rifie used by a Spanish
soldier at San Juan Hill was given the
other day at Fort Scott, Kan., with |
r ^bidrtjrtiltesnltd. The rifle was brought
home by Captain A.. M. Ttilaou of
Twenty-third Kansas. A ball shot from
it against the fiat side of a common fiatiron
penetrated the iron, leaving a hole
' as smooth as if it were a pine board.
The h%jll in going out on the opposite
! side scaled the iron as an ordinary buli
let wonld a board. Then three shots
; were fired against a steel ax blade. Two
of them gouged deep holes into the steel
| and the third bulged it on the opposite
aide.?Kansas City Times.

6 Maple Planked Shad.
jj "Two years ago," says the Boston
y Transcript, "a Maine lumbering party,
X) not being able to find the conventional
f7 green ash for planking their shad, had
!7 recoujse to a green rock maple slab.
4 The heat started the sap in the wood,
o which bubbled and hissed about the fish,
J9 imparting its delicate flavor to the dish
^ when ready to be served, and lol it was
discovered that a new table delicacy
had been added to the world's cuisine
j1.'* Now there is no more green ash plank

A White Elephant In Paris.
A genuine white elephant?or what {
passes as such?has been presented to ;
the Parisians by M. Doumer, the French j
representative in Siaxn. Cherie, as the
pachyderm has already been nicknamed,
made her state entry into Paris a few
days ago, being met at the Gare de
Lyon by a distinguished company.
Some little disappointment was felt
when it was observed, as the traveler
stepped onto the platform, that she was
scarcely so white as she had been painted.
The prevailing tone of her complexinn
is indeed a sort of natchv red, veiled
by a mass of grayish hair, the eyes and
the eyelids being pink. It will be remembered
that Barnum's specimen,
4'secured at immense cost." fell equally
short of its reputation.
As a matter of fact, the Albino elephant
is never really white, but the deficiency
of nature is sometimes made up
for by the aid of art. It is gratifying to
learn that the guest of the Jardin des
Plantes has charming manners, including
a clever habit of kneeling and doing
obeisance to the French public.?London
Chronicle.
Deserved His Promotion.
Captains of the Iowa, in his contribution
to "The Story of the Captains" for
The Century, speaks of the wonderful
nerve and courage of a boatswain's
mate named Trainor shown at the destruction
of the Vizcaya. The boat of
which Trainor was acting cockswain
was lying near the stern of the burning
cruiser, and most of the Spanish sailors
crowded on her upper deck aft had been .
persuaded to jump overboard, and were '
thna savpd Three remained, however.
holding on to the rail, with their bodies
hanging over the side of the almost redhot
ship.
Trainor was heard to say/ "We most
save them men somehow," and without
orders he jumped overboard, swam
to the side of the Vizcaya,.clambered np
to the deck at the imminent risk of his
life, kicked the three men overboard,
took a header himself and succeeded in
rescuing all three cf them. The water
was fall of sharks snapping and tearing
at the Spanish dead and wounded.
Trainor was afterward promoted at the
request of his captain.
Good Exerclne For the Calves.
That results which seem incredible
can be obtained in the development of
the muscles without resorting to gymnasium
practice or using expensive apparatus
and without the slightest interference
with the subject's usual
mode of life has been learned with
pleasure by a young man in Germantown.
He bought a bicycle last summer
and proposed to ride it, but his legs
were so small that in "bike" pants he
was jeered at wherever he went, and
soon his wheel was rusty from disuse.
He determined then to enlarge his
calves, and in September he began the
simple exercise of standing with stiff '
knees flat footed, then rising as high as
possible on bis toes and repeating this
until thoroughly tired. His salves are

daily since January ten minutes
on getting up, ten before luncheon
and ten before retiring.?Philadelphia^

Science of Sounding Sknlla.
Certain disciples of Charcot, notably
M. Gilles de la Tourette, have recently
evolved a new science, or rather a new
aid to diagnosis, in the sounds of the
skull. They tap the 3kull with a little
hammer, and, according to the character
of the note it gives out, they conclude
as to the condition of the brain.
The skull of a child gives out a nota-of
higher pitch than that of a man. In old age
the skull sound rises again. The
thickness of the skull can be determined
after some practice, and any disease or
fracture betrays itself by the peculiar
sound. Some skulls, according to the
doctors, give out a veritable sound of
a cracked pot, and so the popular term
"cracked" for a person of eccentric intellect
is fully justified.
Even tbe Seconds Escaped.
Two street porters in Bonn got into a
row lately, and instead of punching
each other's heads were persuaded to
fight a duel "under severe conditiona "
They were stripped to the waist, blindfolded
and armed with revolvera One
shot was to be fired at 15 paces, blindfolded;
then the combatants were to
raise the bandages, advance to fen paces
distance and fire again. Two rounds
were fired in this way without damage
to any one, not even the foHr seconda
The latter then decided that honor was
satisfied. All the parties to the affair
have been arrested, the authorities apparently
being fnricna at the ridicnle
upon dueling by the low rank of the
combatants.
j ~-Bicycle Signal Code.
A simple internatiohsV~8igasl
for bicyclists has been devised in Paris.
It is to be sent to all bicycle clubs and
organizations the world over and may
prove of value not only to bicyclists, but
to pedestrians. Founded on the Morse
system of telegraphy, its simplicity is
expected to contribute to its general
adoption. The strokes are made on the
bicycle belL The code is as follows:
