MANILA, P. 1., Company E Headquar
ters, Feb. 11, 1899.— 1 presume you at home
will wonder what the Thirteenth is doing
here through all the trouble that we are
in the midst of, and 1 can commence by
saying that we are doing our duty In a
way that brings words of praise from our
officers, and Company E is having its full
share to do and maybe a little more.
Our work is made all the harder by the
fact that we are kept in the city as po
licemen, while all around us is heard the
roar of big guns and the crack of volley
firing. To illustrate how enthusiastic the
boys are to go to the firing line would be
a large undertaking, but an. example
shows itself in Tuesday, when over 500
of the regiment absented themselves from
quarters without permission and stayed
on the line until evening, but none were
wounded. Company E, .when roll was
called at noon, had less than a set of
fours in quarters.
Next morning the boys (those who were
not excused) were on the carpet for a
short chat with the captain. It Is need
less to say we learned some interesting
things concerning army regulations. The
regiment as a whole must not be Over
looked, for we are all in the boat, and
great credit is due to every company In
its own district.
Company C, in Tondo district, has prob
ably had the worst of It so far as they
seem to be In a nest of insurgents, who
don't hesitate to shoot when a chance is
given them. I understand one man of
this company was shot through the arm,
but so far this is our list of wounded.
On Monday night the call to arms was
sounded in the walled city, and a small
squad of our men went to the Bridge of
Spain, where the guard had been fired
on. All was soon quiet, however, but
one of our recruits, Knickerboker by
name, says ha Is a regular now, as he
fired his piece and heard a bullet or so
sing, and we, of course, have to believe
It. Our usual position when the call
comes Is at the eastern and western gates,
and some of the boya say they get -to
walking In their sleep, and start Immedi
ately for the gates:
There was quite a lot of trouble experi
enced here the first few days of the bat
tle, as the water works were In the hands
of the Insurgents, and, when taken, It
was found they had stolen the cylinder
heads and valves. These were found
later burled under a pile of coal, and now
everything Is in working order. Our sup
ply,, here In the company cam* from a
cistern which we had filled previous to
the outbreak.
Fred Glese, our cook, Is doing his very
best for the boys by keeping some good
hot coffee on the fire for those who are
called out or are on duty.
Maj. (Billy) Lewis, who has been on the
sick list for some time, has come back
from the convalescent hospital at Cor
regidor, and says he is feeling fine.
Sergeant Scheber.who has been there for
some time, is still confined, but doing
Private William Buggard, who has been
in the hospital for over two months, is
again back with the company and doing
duty. Bill had a hard run of fever.
Chinamen here (the laboring class)
think the war is "mucho bueno," for they
are making a real good thing out of it
by following the army up and taking all
they can get their hands on, especially
from burning houses. It is needless to
say they stay out of the reach of bullets.
The Chinese Xmas opened Thursday
evening (9th), and New Year's day came
on yesterday, and our heathen friends
are doing the thing up in proper style,
though they don't take kindly to the idea
of not being allowed to use fireworks, but
this has been strictly prohibited by or
ders of the commanding general.
Nevertheless, as the Filipinos say, they
have "mucho chow chow and mucho
musica," also a good: time generally,
which the boys can partake of if they

Coffee Scalds Breast and Hands.

All Remedies Useless.
My little boy was two years old when ha
reached upon the table and spilled a cup of
hot coffee all over his left hand. It had gone
through to his breast, and before I could re
move his clothes it had burned his breaat,
and the skin came off with the clothes, and
he has to-day a scar as large as a silver dollar
on his breast. I applied a great many things.
The burn was a very ugly one, hard to heal.
I was requested to try Cutioura (ointment),
which healed up rapidly, but before I used a
half a box of Cuticuba It was well. Oh, I
think Citticcba is the salve above all others.

Feb. 14. — Corporal George Mahar has
gone to the hospital, quite laid up with
rheumatism in the Joints. He was look
ing real poorly when he left yesterday.
Had some little excitement in the wall
ed city yesterday afternoon, brought on
by the order to search the church of tha
Franclsian monks, where' contraband of
war was supposed to be concealed. A
detachment of our company under Capt.
Spear and Lieut. Trowbrldge took pos
session of it at 2 o'clock, posting guards
on the outside to prevent anything be
ing carried out. Tha search then com
menced and was conducted in the most
thorough manner, commencing In the
tower and from there down. into the cells
In the basement. Quite a quantity of
old guns were found; also knlvea of
various descriptions, but nothing of the
modern pattern. In all the search lasted
about six hours and was very tiresome.
Corporal Eckley and myself crawled the
! whole length of the attic on our hands
1 and knees in dust six inches thick and
[bats and lizards thicker than that, of
course with a grain of salt. All property
taken was, of course, receipted for and
turned over to the colonel.
These churches would make a study for
a backwoodsman, and I'll guarantee he
would, come out lost in the end. Capt.
Spear made some finds in the line of
rifles and swords.
Through the kindness of a staff officer
I was. permitted to go out over the bat
tle ground and a description may prove
interesting, which I will send In a later
letter. —Private W. A. Kimball,

"Our chief complaint was the mouldy
bread and beef that ought to have been
embalmed that they served us as ra
tions," said J. A. Ijysander, who enlisted
from St. Paul in the navy, in a lecture
on his experiences delivered last evening
at the First Christian church, at Far
rirtgton and Nelson avenues. The lec
ture, which was very largely attended,
was illustrated with a very interesting
series o< stereopticon views.
Mr. Lysander told of his Impressions
and experiences when he first went on
board the training ship Franklin.
"There were 700 of us," he said. "Many
of the men had come from the large
cities and had not grown accustomed to
the experience of having somebody tell
them when to go to bed and when to
rise." ».
In a corner of the room there hung a
regulation hammock such as was In use
on shipboard and Mr. Lysander explain
ed how easily It could be overturned by
one of the acoiimated tars that happened
to want to play a trick on an unsalted
recruit. But It was on the provisions
that he dilated most strongly.
"There was a man named Carey who
had been a labor agitator at Chicago,"
he said. "He took it upon himself to
present our troubles to the captain, and
whenever we had a grievance he would
go to the mast with two of the tars and
appeal for redress. The captain did not
seem inclined to do anything on the food
question, and Carey made up his mind
to bring about a change. He enlisted the
service of a steward and had a loaf of
bread put away, together with a chunk
of the meat.
"After two or three days the bread and
meat were served to Carey one morning
at breakfast. The meat smellefi U> heav
en and the bread was equally bad. On
th« advice of the boys Carey took his
breakfast up to the captain and submitted
it respectfully. This led to an investi
gation and resulted In a great improve
ment In our rations."
Views of the Maine, Santiago harbor
and other points of interest were ex
hibited, and in explaining them the lec
turer reviewed the history of the war
and all the naval battles were fought
over again.
