The talk of turning the Oregon

It turns out that all of the blood
curdling accounts of the terrible
battles on Cuban soil by American
troops last week in the yellow

place Friday afternoon and was
reported in the Kkntuckian a few
hours later It was a skirmish in
which about a dozen Spaniards and
no Americans were killed It was
fought by forty men from the Gus

not be found

the other regiment together with
the two companies of cavalry Mc
