The forces of the insurgent leader Bellarmino, which recently have been operating around Donsel, province of Sorogon, were .driven across the mountains by the gecond infantry and finally captured by the sixth cavalry. Bellarmino, with 1,000 men and 214 guns, sur rendered to Col. Wint at Albay, cap ital of the province of that name. One hundred more rifles will be sur rendered to-morrow. Later in the day the official an noincement of the surrender of Bel larmino was made. According to this account, Bellarmino, who had been operating in the province of Sorsogona, surrendered Thursday last at Lagaspi, off Albany Bay, with 32 officers, 315 guns and .1,000 rounds of ammunition. The insur gent president of that section of the country and many Filipinos accom panied Bellarmino, who gave himself up to Col. Theo. J. Wint of the sixth cavalry. In all, since June, 1897 insurgents have surrendered in that district. Col. Wint's regiment came from China with General Chaffee. Before disem barking at Legaspi Col. Wint went to Gen. Chaffee and asked the latter if he desired him to clean up that part of the country. Gen. Chaffee answered. "Yes, but I do not com mand until July 4." In three weeks Bellarmino was cornered in spite of the theories of many officers that cavalry could not be used in effective operations in such a country. SAVED HIS BOY.

I Louisiana Girl Also Shot at the Mayor and Cut Her Throat. New Orleans, La.. July 4. The pretty town of New Iberia, La., is in the throes of a sensation such as the state has seldom seen. Yesterday Miss Eva Domanaque one of the prettiest girls in town and a recent graduate of the New Iberia high school, walked into the store o A. Daigre, one of the most successfu merchants in the littlecity, and beck oned Mr. Daigre to one side. Miss Domanaque, who had been employed in the store since her grad uation, spoke to Mr. Dairge for short while and finally he walked away from her. As he did so the girl pulled a large revolver from her shirt waist and opened fire on him. The first bullet grazed his cheek Mr. Daigre fled from the building and down the street. Miss Doma anaque fired three shots at him as he fled. Mayor Burke tried to stop her. She turned on him and fired. lie took to his heels, too. The girl remained alone ir the store. Frightened men peered at her throuerh the open windows. She placed the revolver to her forehead and snapped it twice. Then she walked to the show case seized a razor and drew it across her throat. She sank to the floor with blood gushing from the wound in a great stream. "Tell mother I died innocent," she gasped. The wound was sewed up aud Miss Domanaque has a chance for recovery. The last heard ot Mr. Daigre was that he had taken a skiff at Jeaner ette and was headed for Plaquemines. A brother of Miss Domanaque chased him to the former place. Daigre's store is closed. He is a married man and after he fled his family followed. Daierre had only lived in New Iberia two years. PATR0LING AGAINST FIRES. Southern Missouri Farms Being Swept Away by Flames. Dixon, Mo., July 8. Thousands of dollars worth of damage has been done within the last forty-eight hours on farms along the line of the Frisco road southwest of this point by fires started by sparks from the engines. Parched by the long drouth, the grass and stubble in the fields along the track burns like tinder. Many farmers have lost their entire har vested grain crop. Saturday night, between Monett and Springfield, an almost unbroken line of burning wheat and haystacks stretched out for ten miles. Mead ows are blackened and in some places orchards have been burned over and killed. The situation is one of intense anxiety to farmes and fruit raisers. To-day hundreds of them were out patroling the fields to guard against fire. Rain is the only hope. 1 Lot- on Homesteads Will be Awarded bj tery.---Registration Began July io. The Kiowa, Wichita.

Troubles of a Minister. To benefit others Rev. J. T. W. Vernon, of Hartwell, Ga., writes: O'For a long time I had a running sore on my leg. i ineu many reme dies without benefit, until I use'd a bottle of Electric Bitters and a box of Bucklen's Arnica Salve, which cured me sound and well."

A special from Stroud Ok., says: An unsuccessful attempt waa made about half-past two o'clock this morning by three masked men to rob the Stroud State Bank. The robbers entered the room next to the bank, where Amos Seaton, assistant cashier and Earl Heath were asleep. The young men were awakened and bound hand and foot, and told that if they made a noise they would be shot by the fellow who stood over them with a gun. The robbers injected nitro-glycerine into the safe three times and the ex plosions almost totally destroyed the safe, but they failed to get to the money vault. They relieved Heath and Seaton of their watches and a small amount of money. Heath begged for his watch on account of it being a keepsake, and it was given bnek to him. Boys Burned to Death. Louisiana, Mo., Julv G. SamTav or and Don Nichols, 4 and 5 years old, respectively, were burned to death here this afternoon. They were playing in a shed, in which were coal oil and gasoline, and they probably set fire to it. The door was shut and they were unable to get out, and it was too late to save them when the fire was discov ered. The bodies were charred masses of flesh and bones when taken out, and it was impossible to distinguish them. Sam Tavlor was the son of a busi ness men here Don Nichols was the son of a missionary in China, and was here on a visit with his mother, who is preparing to start back to China soon.

These are the enervating days, when, as somebody has said, men drop by the sunstroke as if the Day of Fire had dawned. They are fraught with danger to people whose systems are poorlv sustained; and this leads us to say, in the interest of the lees robust of our readers, that the full effect of Hood's Sjirsaparilla is such as to suggest the propriety of calling this medicine something besides a blood purifier ami tonic, say a sustaining diet, it makes it much easier to learthe heat, assures refreshing sleep, and will without any doubt avert much sii kness this tune of year. Farm Hand's Strange Suicide. Nevada, Mo., July 0. One of the strangest suicides that ever took place in this section occurred last night. James Watson, a farmer living five miles southwest of Nevada, had in his employ a young man named Jesse Richardson and the latter worked all day 3-esterday mowing hay. At about quitting time he unhitched his team from the mower, then to his own neck and one of his ankles he attached a rope and made this fast to one of the hordes. By some means he succeeded in frightening the animals and away they sped over rocks and stumps for home. The man wasdragged in this manner a distance of two miles and of course met a horrible death. What caused the rash act is a mystery that will never be known, as Richardson was in good spirits when last seen alive and left nothing to indicate the cause of his deed. The onlv theorv that appears feasible is that he be came demented from working in the extreme heat, which had been over 100 in the shade here for ten days, and took his own life in a fit of tem porary insanity. 111 11 r'l rx mm The Cause of Many Sudden Deaths.
