A riEMOCUATIO HKWHPArKIt FuM!jho4 Wcrkly at Camden, Tcnn. EuttrrJ kt Camden i Beooud-ClaM Mail Mattor. TR1TIK BROS., ruLtiKhprd, Camden, Tmn, Half the arable Uad of Franco, a little luore than Lnlf the pasture, as lunch as sU-scventlm of the viuo yards, and two-thirds of tho garden land are cultivated by thoir owners. Tha average size of the farm in France is fifteen and one-quarter acres against aixty-threo acres iu (Ireat P.ritain. Tho averago in tho Uuiled States at tho data of the lant Federal coimus wan 137 acres. Mora than thirty-nine per cent, of the farms in France are under one hectare, equal to two and one-half acres; only two and one-half per cent of the French holdings amount to 100 acres each. The Oregon is the queen of battle ships. She has brokon all records for distance, for sustained speed, for coal endurance. It is an impressive fact that (the had to leave two cruisers behind because they could not keep op with her. It is interesting that nearly every ship built at San Fran cisco turned out the host of her class, the San Francisco, the Monterey, the Oregon, the Olynipia. The contract price of these ships was higher than on the Atlantic, though the actual cost of building is not muoU more. The builders seem to put their excess of profit into superior work. There died lately in aTenuossee in sane asylum a young woman who, five years ago, in a fit of jealousy, killed her most intimate girl friend because the latter had chosen to enlarge the circle of her companions. Alice Mitchell is a fatal typo of an infatua tion common among school and col lege girls, which, while seldom ac companied by such tragic results, yet causes untold headaches and heart burnings, observes the Youth's Com panion. Flowers and candy, calls and drives, notes and poetry, loss of .appetite and failure in lessons are out xvard signs of affections unwholesome in their selfishness and intensity. It has been said that the lifolong friend ships formed there constitute the prin cipal charm of college life, and this is true; but young people and their par ents and teachers should discourage all such absorbing attachments as wrecked the lives of Alice Mitchell and her young victim. " The bill providing for a national commission for the arbitration of dis putes between railway companies and their employes, recently passed by both Houses of Congress, appears to the New York Independent to be a very creditable measure, and while by no means so radical as has been ad vocated by many parties, it is free from the very serious objections which attach to any proposition for compul sory arbitration. Briefly, the bill provides that either railway companies or employes may request the Chair mau of the Interstate Commerce Com mission and the Commissioner of Labor to endeavor to settle a pending dispute amicably by mediation be tween the contending parties. In case the endeavor falls, each party to the controversy is to name one arbitra tor and the two so appoiuted shall select a third, and the board so chosen shall make an award within twenty days from the time the third arbitra tor is selected. The award shall con tinue in force between the parties for one year, and tho employer shall not -dismiss nor shall any employe dis satisfied with the award quit work tinder three months without giving thirty days' notice. Tho only force relied upon to cause either party to take advantage of this system and to ahtda bv the results is the force of cublie opinion, which is, after all, the real force behind laws of every sort It is believed that few railway com panies or labor organizations would venture to encounter the public dis approval that would follow its re fusal to submit its case to arbitration, or the still stronger expression of pub lic sentiment that would follow a fail ure to aocept the results of an arbi iration. let br enter yonr.nanie on oor sob criptIon books. lisli if I BID Bombardment Is Resumed. S' TERMS REFUSED Toral With ISo Wanted to Surrender Proviso That UU Army Allowed to Retire Un der Flyin? Flac;s. An Associated Tress dispatch from Jurugua, via Kingston, says: The sur render of Kautiaga was formally offer ed bythe Spanish commander, Oeneral Toral, Sunday morning, but the con ditions attached caused a prompt re fusal of the offer by Oeneral Shaf ter. Tho negotiations, however, re sulted iu the extension of the armis tice until noon and white flags of truce still floated over the opposing armies. . Oeneral Toral's proposal contem plated the immediate surrender of the city, but he insistod that his army be permitted to march away under arms and with flying colors, and declared that he would fight to the last ditch unless the conditions were accepted. Oeneral Shafter replied that nothing but unconditional surrender would be considered by him, but he consented to cable the Spanish offer to Washing ton, in the meantime extending the armistice. It was shortly before noon Sunday when a little group of Spanish officers, under a flag of truce, came out from under the yellow wall of the besieged city and slowly made their way toward the American line. A detail was sent to meet them and they were escorted to comfortable quarters, while the let ter from General loral was carried to General Shatter's tent, two miles from the front. The letter was couched iu the icily courteous terms characteristic of such communications aud was as brief as possible. It bore the signature of General Toral, who commands at Santiago since General Linares was wounded, and stated that he was prepared to surrender the city provided his army was permitted to capitulate "with honor." This, he explained, meant that the Spanish forces should go unmolested and in any direction they wished with arms and Hying their colors. The letter concluded with the bold biaiemeut mat surrender under any other terms was an impossibility and would not he considered. General Shafter irnmediatelv cabled the note to Washington and sent the general a refusal of his proposal, but said he would communicate with his government aud extended the formal armistice until Sunday at noon. Promptly at the hour designated the white flags were taken down along the American line, save one. iu front of General Lawton's brigade, which, by some oversight, was left fluttering its onely message for an hour. It was first discovered by General Lawton himself, who, on riding up to his line, ordered it taken down at once. Then, as if by masric. the white fines wavincr over Santiago dropped from their hal yards, and the unofficial truce was at an end. Hours passed without a shot, the Americans being loath to shoot upon an already defeated foe, while the Spaniards were undoubtedly waiting fnvfha fii-af f,.n, ,. OI,.Hi after 4 p.m. the long silenco was broken by a shell from one of the eastern bat teries of Santiago, when from Capron'a iron-throated monsters belched back the answer which soon silenced the Spanish guns. A rapid musketry fire followed upon the Spaniards who ap peared before their works, which ran them to immediate cover. CAMAItA AGAIN TURNS BACK. Squadron lte-Entera the Sjici Canal On It Way to Spain. A cable dispatch from Suez, Egypt, says: "Tha Spanish squadron, under Admiral Camara, has returned here and is prepared, to re-enter the canal on its way to Spain. "Camara's squadron had been an chored beyond the three-mile limit, where it awaits the Felayo. "The admiral yesterday visited the governor and salutes were exchanged." A dispatch received at Paris from Ismailia also says the Spanish squad rou has re-entered the canal on its way back to Spain. WAU l'AK.UJKAl'llH. A Brief Compilation of Daily Occurronco.H. ? There are persistent rumors at Madrid that Alum l.ivur do Kin, foreign minis- and Heimr (iumno, tho luiiiiHte public instruction and ub!j works, havo received full powers ti propofto a suspension of hostilities as a preliminary to peace iigntinti!H. Tha ministers nnither aflirm uur deny tha rumor. After tha destruction of the Spanish fleet stuiie !.() men f the Maria Teresa wera placed a prisoners on tha Har vard. For soma reason not vet ascer tained these men mutinied. Tha ofli eers and crew of tha Harvard were not unprepared, however, and the muti ueets were tired upon. Six Spaniards were killed outright and twelve weio wounded. Use Spanish government has re reived a telegram from Admiral Cer- vera announcing tha death of Admiral Villuinil, who was in command of tho Spanish torpedo bout squadron at Santiago da Cuba and the suicide of Captain Laaga, the commander of the Infauta Maria Teresa. There is no material chango in the aspect of affairs at Manila. The Span iards are strongly posted about tha outskirts of the town and also along tho whole length of the conduit of the waterworks, eight miles inland. It is believed the Spaniards only hold the waterworks on sulieranca, because the insurgent pickets hold sway every where and could easily raid and wreck the conduit. Lieutenant Hobson and his seven companions are now among menus. The Spanish authorities at Sautiago agreed to an exchange which was ac complished without incident. Admiral Cervera has been trausferr- ed from the Gloucester to the battle ship Iowa, and is being treated with eveiv consideration. Iu brief inter views he stated that he was ordered to leave the Santiago harbor, but refused to s'av from whom the orders came. A dispatch from Santiago de Cuba says that IU) ol the sailors who De- longed to Admiral Cervera s squadron have reached Santiago de Cuba. General Young has refused to issue further rations to the Cubans until ad vices are received from Washington in answer to his expose of the situation. The Cubans refuse to assist in tho hospital and commissary departments, claiming they are soldiers and not la borers. Between 12,000 and 15,000 innocent victims of the w ar have fled to ElCaney in wild panic to escape the terrors of the threatened bombardment of Sauti ago, aud they are now confronted by the horrora, of starvation. In their helpless confusion they are appealing to General Shafter for succor. Advices state that Camara's squad ron has returned to Suez, entered the canal aud is on its way back to Spain I he Italia (Home) says that nego tiations have been opened among the European powers with a view of ar ranging peace. The best intentions, the paper asserts, are manifested at Washington, but the Madrid cabinet strongly opposes any idea of peace. The navy department received "cablegram from Admiral Dewey statiug that the rebel leader, Aguinaldo, pro claimed himself president of the Phil lppines on July 1st. The Spanish cabinet is of the opin ion that Camara's fleet should continue its voyage to the Philippines. The 323 wounded heroes of the bat ties around Santiago are now at Key West and are receiving the best of care. None of them are in danger Tha war department has been ad vised that during a severe storm off the coast of Cuba eleven lighters en route to Santiago in tow of tugs, were swamped and lost. So far as known no fatalities occurred. Secretary Long cabled Admiial Sampson ordering him to de'ach im mediately Commodore Watson's squad ron and directing the latter to proceed at once upon his mission to attack tho coast of Spain. The American losses at Santiago are now estimated at 1,7000 killed and wounded. While the cases at McIIenry have been under treatment surgeons of the marine hospital service have been in specting and watching carefully many other points where it was thought possible the fever might appear but no cases have developed. A belief is current in Madrid that the United States warships New York, Oregon aud Texas are now on their way to Spain, and precautions are be ing taken at all the seaports to avoid a surprise. Paymaster General Stanton, of the army, has recommended to Secretary of War Alger the appointment of twenty-five additional paymasters for the volunteer arm of the service. There are now on the rolls seventy paymasters in the volunteers aud twenty-five in the regular army, but this force is inadequate for tho work at hand. The armistice at Santiago came to an end Sunday at noon and bombard ment was promptly begun. mm mi MX YI.SSKI.S CAKHIIM1 2.&00 MUX 10U HI AFT tilt. HEY WILL REINFORCE OUR ARMY.

None of the Cuban lighthouses were lighted and the transports and their convoying vessels sailed without lights aud un der orders to keep fifteen miles off the Cuban coast. At 2 o'clock on the afternoon of the 8th headlands of Ouautanamo bay were sighted and the Machias entered the harbor with mail for Commander McCalla's fleet and the marines. The transports moved slowly to the westward during the night and arrived off Juragua early in the morning. As the men on the Gate City were trying to make out the lines of the buildings ashore, four dead bodies drifted past the ship. They were ev idently the victims of Aduiral Cerve ra's ships. The sight created much ex citement on our ships. The Newark was the first to greet the arrival of the recrui's. VESSELS CAN BE SAVED. The VUeaya, Maria Teresa nml Clirlntobut Colon Will l'.e KtiWeU.

The hero la a newspaper man who Is connected with one of the New Orleans dallies: Something over two years ago, on a cold winter's day, his wife gave hhu i letter to mall, and he slipped It tn-.o his overcoat pocket. It was addressel to a friend in Ims Angeles. Two week9 ago, during a chilly snap, he put on the overcoat, and in the lining he felt the long lost miFslve. Conscience strick en, and without noticing the date or re membering when the letter had been 5iven him, he rushed oft and posted It. It was when the reply came from tho friend In Los Argeles that the secret was out. Th friend thought that the writer must have gone crazy. "I was glad to get your letter," the friend re plied, "but what on earth Is the matter with you? You wrote things that hap pened two years ago and about nothing else." It took some time to get matters straightened out. New Orleans Times "Democrat. THEYWiYNT TO TELL Theso Grateful Women Who Ilavo Boon Helped by Mra. Pinkham. Women who have suffered severely and been relieved of their ills by Mrs. Pinkham's advice and medicine are constantly urging publication of their statements for the benefit of other wo men. Here are two such letters: Mrs. Lizzie Reveiu.y, 253 Merrimac St., Lowell, Mass., writes: " It affords me great pleasure to tell nil suffering women of the bcnelit I have received from taking Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound. I can hard ly find words tocxpressmy grat itude for what she has done for mo. My trouble was ulceration of the womb. I was un der the doctor's cure. Upon examina tion he found fifteen very large uleera, but he failed to do me good. I took .sev eral bottlesof Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound, also used the Sanative Wash, aud um cured. Mrs. Pinkham's medicine saved my life, and I would recommend it to all suffering women." Mrs. Amos Tkomuleay, Ellenburgh Ctr., N. Y.. writes: ' I took cold at the timo my baby was born, causing me to have milk legs, and was sick in bed for eight weeks. Doctors did me no good. I surely thought I would die. I was al so troubled with falling of tho womb. I could not eat, had faint spells a.s often aa ten times a day. One day a lady came to see me and told me of the benefit she had derived from taking Lydia E. Pinkham's medicine, and ad vised me to try it. I did so, and had taken only half a bottle before I was able to sit in a chair. After taking three bottles I could do my own work.
