Steaming Forty Miles an Hour.
Cleveland Moffot’a description In
McClure’s of the Knglisli boat, the
Turbinia, which travels forty miles
r.n hour with esse, suggests that It is
a good thing Unit wo arc* not over
stocked with torpedo boats at the be
ginning of the war. Apparently all
previously known speed records for
short distances mi water are to Ik*
eclipsed. The Turhluia is the Inven
tion of Mr. raisons of Newcastle, a
son of la>pl Rosso, who Is widely
known for the big telescope that he
built. It burns coal, but has no
steam engine iu the ordinary sense of
the word. The cylinder and piston
are replaced by a set of turbines In
side tin* steam chest. These are at
tached directly to the shaft, or rather
to the three shafts that carry the
nine screws. The steam turns at the
rate of 2.500 revolutions a minute
with i>erfoct ease and smoothness,
while the best marine engine iu the
world would tear Itself to pieces do
ing a quarter as mauy. In fact, the
Turbluia's screws could Ih* run up to
turns n minute if there were
any gain. The trouble Is that above
certain limits the water is simply cut
into foam. The inventor says that
forty-six tulles an hour is quite practi
cable commercially, and lifty-eight
miles an hour possible where cost is
not considered. It looks as though
the torpedo boats and destroyers now
built might as well Is* sold for tug
boats.—Springfield Republican.

It is so with the humnn blood. From the

From the Gazette, BlandimvllU, HL
The wife of tho Rev. A. R. Adam*, pastor
Of the Bedford Christian Church at Blan*
dinsville. 111., was for years compelled to
live a life of torture from disease. Her
case baffled tho physicians, but today she
is alive and well aud tells the story of her
recovery ns follows:
“About six years ago,*’ said Mrs. Adams,
I weighed about 140 pounds, but my
health began to fail ana 1 lost flesh. My
j * oo, ‘ ‘‘id uot agree with me and felt like a
stone iu my stomach. 1 began to bloat all
' over until 1 thought I had dropsy,
i "I had pains and soreness iu my left side
i which extended clear across my back and
, a “° iuto the region of my heart During
these spells a hard ridge would appear in
the loft sido of my stomach and around
the left sido.
"These attacks left mo sore and ex
hausted. All last summer I wa-> so uervous

o’clock 1 Ins morning a stream of refu
g»h*s has been pouring Into the city,
some nuked, and nil hungry, skeleton*
uu«l foot sore. Many had fallen by the
wayside.
The town of Santiago presents a dis
mal sight. Most of the houses have
been sacked and the stores have all
been looted and nothing to eat can Ik*
had for love nor money. Iu the streets
of the city ibis morning, at the ln
treuchmeiits, at the breastworks, aud
at every bio feet or so of the barbed
wire fences were tin* living skeletons
of Spanish soldiers.
Twenty-two thousand refugees are
quartered ut El Cane.v. 5,000 at Flrnie
za, and 5.000 n t Cubitus K1 Bouiato,
where they have living for a fortnight.
111 one 500 were crowded iuto one
building which was a regular pigsty
with a horrible stench. They used the
water from tho river, where soiled
clothing us washed and all manner of
tilth is floating.
The Spanish troops laid down their
arms ni :> o’clock this morning. They
will Ik* camped two miles outside the
city limits, under guard, until tlielr
embarkation takes place. The docks
are crowded by incoming refugees ill
a starving condition, awaiting the ar
rival in the harbor of the Red Cross
steamer State of Texas, as there are no
eatables to Ik* bought in the* city. The
on trance of the refugees was quiet aud
peaceful, they viewing their wrecked
li lines philosophically, as the fortune of
war. Admiral Sampson’s last bom
bardment of Santiago wrecked fifty
seven houses in the city, causing heavy
damage.
Among tin* arrivals to-day were the
Herman, Japanese ami Portuguese
consuls and their families, the British
and French consuls having arrived
day before yesterday.

Tin* market place has been sacked by
the troops.
At 7 t('dock, tin* hour of tin* formal
surrender of tin* 10,000 troops at San

trict oi eastern Cuba, the Spanish flag
was lowered from Morro Castle.
Steam launches from the fleet en
tered the harbor lids morning and ex
amined 1 lie batteries, the wrecks of
the Mcrrimnc and the sunken Span
ish cruiser Relna Mercedes, and the
t(»i|K*do tiring station.
This afternoon the torpedoes were
taken up or exploded, after which the
Red Cross steamer State of Texas en
tered to give assistance to the sick and
wounded in the city. The worships
may not enter the harbor for several
days. Nearly all the American men
of-war are now In Guantanamo bay.

Joseph of New York City, who

Company shipped not less than five
millions from St. Michaels. Other re

ment. The officers of the company
could pot he aeeo to-night, but the con

McKinley la Accomod.»tlnff-
It is a notable fact that President
McKinley went to the cnpitol with his
Cabinet during the closing hours of
the recent session of Congress iu order
to expedite business and save the
commit tee on enrolled bills the time
and trouble of carrying legislation
from the cnpitol all tin* way to the
White House to receive his signature.
It is tin* first time It has boon done
since President Harrison’s term. Mr.
Cleveland was never willing to make
this concession. He always required
plenty of time to examine bills that
were brought for his approval, and
often insisted that Congress should
wait the entire ten days allowed by
the constitution for this purpose, lie
claimed tin* right to assume his full
share of the responsibility for legisla
tion and would never sign auytliing iu
a hurry.
President McKinley. however,
shows a different disposition. Helms
been a member of Congress himself
and understands the feelings of the
national legislature. While he will
not yield any of the prerogatives of
his otliee, In* always meets the "co
ordinate body” more than half way,
and tints he has an influence which
Presid.-nt Cleveland was never able
to acquire.
