This morning their special train left Frankfurt at a quarter past 4, while it was still quite dark. The party arrived at Tempel shortly af ter 6, and mounting, their horses madefor a hillock hard by, whence an extensive view of the field was obtainable. The sun was just rising when an attack began along the whole line. The Emperor today assumed the command of the Blue or defending army. I he idea was that the Red qr invading arm', which j-esterday drove back the Blue, had sent off cavalry to j obtain" reinforcements, the Blue having been strongly re inforced during the night. The Red cavalry divisions lay to the north east, and the Emperor's object was to outflank the Red, thitheeto victorious armv, with the Bluecav airy and fallupon them while they were retreating. At an earlv hour the Empress rode on to the field and, as the cav alry flanking movement was ob served, galloped off with the um pires and their staff, Lord Roberts, and the other visitors, to an emin ence behind the Red army, where the cavalry charge was exacted. Early in the day masses of cavalry ! ed by shapnel fire, and having only ! harfre would now be effective c ; a handful of cavalry, were retiring, 1 ' , -nf. . j Reds, the cavalry, some 8,000 in all came fufl uallop upon the rear.flank r- i i ! of the Reds, of the enemv, the Emperor, on his Arab charger, lead 1 ' w , ling, ihe squadrons. 01 cavalry, wheeling in upon the Reds, passed through a heavy infantry fire for about five minutes, then, opening up in a line extending over a mile, eharged the enemy's guns and in- ! fantrv. riding bewleen them. The unnm ,t iU cd were audible for miles .Some of the guests, among them Generals Youngand Wood, of the United , r i, i States Array, joined in the charge jand rode through the gun. From a spectacular standpoint the dav's proceedings were magnifi- cent and unsurpassed by anything that had gone before. The "charge ,w, thunu nml nWn.firo'' was sounded. The weather was again favourable". Beyond the Joss of a couple of horses no untoward incidents are reported. The cavalry had ridden round upwards of 12 miles before charging. Shortly after the final attaek the uni0rm with orders: Mr. Eagle: Lord Lonsdal in a Yeom;lniy un. ., -, , . . , norm; and the American generals form, as well as the foreign at- es, rode back to Temple station, Frank! Lord Reberts and the Emperor's other guests again dined at ihe CiriL Casino this .evening. They were entertained by ,Prince -Albert of Prussia, who today acted as Ghiei umpire- Subscribe to The HekalId. THE PRESIDENT'S LEG Another Slight Operation-Necessary to Relieve Swelling. , Washington, D. C, Sept. 28. Another operation was performed today on the abscess on the left Jeg of President Roosevelt. In the form er operation a simple needle was used to relieve the 'trouble, but to day the surgeons with a knife inade an incision into the small cavity, exposing the bone, which was found to be slightly affected. The Presi dent's case has been progressing satisfactorily, but -it is believed, by the physicians that the further operation made today will hasten his complete recovery. While none of the doctors are willing to be quoted, they all give the most positive assurances that there is not. the least cause for alarm, and say, on -the contrary, there is I every indication of a speedy recov- . that the area of the bone af fected is very slight and will not result in an impairment of the President's limb, and that there is no evidence whatever of any matter I that would produce blood poison ing. They confidently expect that the President will be on his feet within a reasonable time and with his -robust constitution to assj.-l recovery soon will be himself again. GREAT SALT. LAKE IS DOOM;ED: It appea'i that the .Great Salt lake, in Utall is doomed., Weather bureau officials. announce that theH i waters of tl lake are rapidly re ceding, ffnd that unless there .is a large increase 'in the. rainfall of t!at region the lake must eventual ly dry up. Local observers declare that even an ' increased rainfall would have no permanent effect in staying the drying-up process. The lake in the last fqn years has reced ed seven or eight feet. Wet seasons do not seem to have made much difference, the receding of the wa- toft; rr n rr r cffl.i l i 1 it fVi-vnrr. r-l.T- ly, year by year. The lake is the great survivor of a largemumber of salt lakes, some of them much greater in extent. They flowed over a large part of the western and southwestern territory, and left be hind in some instances inmense de posits of salt, which are now being converted to commercial uses. There are spots not so very distant from Salt lake where almost pure salt can be dug up for many feet below ihe surface, and the vast alkali plains of the southwest were un doubtedly covered with salt water at one time. It is supposed that Salt lake was once a part of the ocean. The drying up of the lake ! seems a misfortune because the lake has so long been an object of inter est and curiosity. It is Really use ful, however, more for the salt that can be extracted from its waters than on any other account, and these deposits can be more "easily worked after the waters have , sub sided than now. EDITORIAL HOiSOR. The New. "Voice, "a journal of good citizenship," published at Chi cagot in" its last .issue preaches a forceful sermon on rtThe Sale of Newspaper Opinions," It sent out through Clarence T. Johnson of Washington, D. CL, decoy letters to between five and six hundred Texas editors in regard to proposed pub lication of "Anti-Prohibition write ups" to be paid for as news matter "without advertising marks of any kind," also as "editorial." Of the editors written to 168 agreed to publish the matter. The New Voice publishes a list of the ' names of these papers and publishers under the caption "Price-List of Editorial Honor." In its editorial on thi: influence of the press the Voice says: "It is conceded upon all hands that the newspaper is one of the most important factors, if not the most important factor, in the for mation of public opinion. As a people we are influenced mightily by what we read. National action is almost the direct reflection of the attitude of tiie more influential por tion of the press. It follows with out argument that honesty, good faith and high morals, important as they may be elsowhere, are supremely-important in the office o5 a newspaper." The Voice is right. The "peo ple are influenced mightily by the press" and should never be led astray by it. Honesty should be the one slogan ofteerr newspaper publisher. Yoakum Times. RAMIE HIS HOBBT. The Late, General Pacheco Took an : Interest in the Fibre. 'The announcement that an Amer ican .company of capitalists has or ganized for the purpose of cultivat ing in this country and making a commercial article of ramie, whicli grows wild all through the sub tropical regions of the republic in a rank, weedlike profusion, calls to mind that ramie was one of the pe hobbies of General Pachecot minis ter of fomento.' Believing that the despised" and unused weed had before ft a great future, the general engaged experts tp engage in its cultivation, spin ning and dyeing in a small way oa his own plantations, himself defray ing all expenses of the experiments. The fibre was spun by hand in&o threads which could have been made much finer had machinery been employed. In texture the: threads were tough and strong, with a gloss and ilneness strongly resembling silk. Just as the thread was ready to be woven into,, cloth the brave general died and the work was carried no farther, but the product of the experiments is still preserved. Mexican Herald- UNIQUE MONUMENT. - In Mount Hope cemetery at Lo gansport' Ind., is one of the queer est monuments ever erected. Wil liam T. Reichter was a ditch con tractor. Death came to him whiles he was wearing a broad brimmed hat, a mackintosh over his suit of clothes, and his trouser legs were in his rubber boots. The members of his family, 'wishing to remember hint as he looked when last he bade them gooby, employed a man to have his picture taken in the clothes last worn by Mr. Reichter. They replaced the head on the pothograph by the head of a likeness of? Mr Reich ter taken several weeks before he died. This done, the picture was sent to a sculptor in Italy ?and a life size statue made from it inltal lian marble. The monument cost $5,000. Chicago Tribune.
