The Spanish forces In Manila made an attack July 81, In the night, on the Amer icana entrenched between Cavlle and Ma nila. After three hours the Spaniards were repulsed with heavy loss. The American loases were 11 killed and 44 wounded. The Spanish loss Is estimated at 850 killed and 000 wounded. Spain's reply was received, through M. Cam boo, the Frenoh ambassador at Washington, Tuesday evening. The re ply Is an acceptance of all the conditions laid down by the United States, but Spain presents elaborate views on each point Involved and on questions which would naturally arise when the American condl tlona were carried Into execution. Pres ident MoKlnley and Ambassador Cam boo, acting for Spain, have agreed upon a protoool "embodying the proposed terma for the negotiation of a treaty of peace. Including the evacuation of Cuba and Porto Rloo." The protocol Is to be submitted to Spain, and may be signed to-day. Captain Charles D. Slgsbee, who com. manded the battleship Maine when she met her fate In the harbor of Havana, and who has been In command of the auxilia ry cruiser St. Paul el nee the war began, has been ordered to relieve Capt. John W. Philip of command of the battleship Texas, now undergoing repairs In New York. It Is understood that Capt. Philip will be assigned to shore duty, probably the command of the Mare Island navy yard at Ban Francisco. Capt. Casper F. Goodrich, of the auxiliary cruiser St. Louis, has been ordered to the command of the Newark, Commodore Watson's new flagship, to succeed Capt. Albert 8. Barker, who has been transferred to the battleship Oregon, on account of the Ill ness of Capt. Charles . Clark. Fire destroyed the barns and outbuild ings at the County home at Vernon Mon day morning, me borne narrowly es caped destruction, the building being saved only by great exertions by persons living in tnat vicinity. The ham was discovered to be on fire about 11 o'clock The Ore started, It Is thought, In hay that had been reoently placed In the barn and which had become heated. W. W. Willis of Vernon Center telegraphed to Rock- Tllle and asked that a fire engine be sent down. Before the steamer Fitton had reached Market street word was sent by telephone by Superintendent Talcott that It would do no good to send the steamer, as there was no water except what was In the well ; also that In all probability the fire was under control and the home would be aaved. The barns and out houses were completely destroyed, but the home was little damaged. The loss will probably not exceed $1,500. There Is only a small water supply at the home, and this fire shows the necessity of a wa ter tower to be used In case of fire. The barn and contents were insured for f 900 Rockvllle Sunday letter in Springfield Republican : The fall political campaign promises to be a lively one, and Interest la already reviving in local politics. The republican leaders are confident of big majorities, and assume no fear of any democratic opposition. The most lm port ant local Issue In Tolland county will be the election of sheriff for four years. Sheriff A. Palmer Dickinson of Rockvllle will be a candidate for the republican nomination, and there seems now to be little doubt but what he will secure the nomination In the convention. Stafford will probably claim the offloe this year again on the ground that Rockvllle has all of the "plums," and Harry Abel Is mentioned as the Stafford candidate. It Is probable that Dickinson will secure the delegates of all but three or four towns, of which Btafford, Union and Mansfield are the doubtful ones. Nothing Is heard about the probable democratic nominee. In 1600 Klbbe, democrat, was elected by about 24 plurality, and In 1804 Dickln son's plurality was 585. The republican politicians are certain that the delegation from the town of Veruon to the state convention will be solid for Lounsbury for governor. Congressman E. Stevens Henry of Rockvllle Is now assured of a renomlnatlon for congress from the 1st uiainoc uis worK during tne past ses sion for the Interests of his district will assure his re-election by a large majority. If any of the present state officers are re nominated this fall It Is probable that Charles Phelps will be retained on the ticket for secretary of state. Central Vermont Railroad (N. L.

Bo far a fighting Is concerned, the war la regarded In Washington as .over. True, the Spanish government Is still dilly-dallying about forwarding Its official acceptance of our terms of peace, but It has oaused President MoKlnley to be In formed that It Is acting for self-preservation, and not from any desire to delay In the matter ; that It must secure popular support at home In order to avoid a civil war.. That the administration has ac cepted this Information In good faith may be Judged from the fact that the trans ports which carried the at my of General Miles to Poto Rloo, and which were to have carried reinforcements to Miles, have been ordered to Santiago to assist In bringing the men of Shatter's army home. Gen. Miles Is still dally occupy tng new territory In Porto Rloo, but he Is do ing no fighting and It is not expected that he will do any, unless the dilly-dallying of Spain shall be prolonged to such an extent as to provoke the president Into withdrawing the terms of peace that have been offered. There is also reason for stating that Gen. Merrttt and Admiral Dewey have orders not to do any fighting at Manilla, unless It is forced upon them Although President McKinley is natural. ly anxious that Spain should accept the terms of peace at once, he would be per tectly willing to stretch the "immediate' evacuation of Cuba, provided for in the terms, considerably, as he would prefer not having to send an army of occu pat Ion to Cuba until well into September, after the sickly season Is over. To the strictly military mind, the pro test signed by all of the generals of Gen Shatter's army, against keeping our men at Santiago, to die or reach a state of debilitated helplessness from fever, which the latter forwarded to Washington, pre sented a case of Insubordination that In any well-regulated European army would have resulted In the court-martial of every signer of the "round robin." But to the relatives and friends of the men who were dying by Inches from the effects of the climatic conditions around Santi ago, whose removal was unquestionably hurried by the publication charged to Col. Theodore Roosevelt of the "round robin," although war depaitment officials persist in denying It, the protest was a good thing. The people of this country care more for the welfare of the men who compose Its army than they do for strict military rule. War department officials know this ; that Is why they started to bring Shafter's men home so quickly. It is, perhaps, fortunate for the men whose names were attached to the Santiago lound tobln" that the war Is about over, The public reprimand given to Col. Roosevelt, by Secretary Alger, for sent! ments expressed In a private letter, Is an Indication of what they may expect while they remain In the service. The president of the Cuban provisional government has written President Mo Klnley a long letter, expressing thanks to and confidence In the U. S., but the most Important paragraph In the letter is that which outlines the Intention, of the Insurgents. It says: "Our first step wnn tne approval or the U. . govern ment, will be to call a new assembly, which will represent as far as possible, every section of territory and condition or people, inis assembly will elect a new provisional government that will possess more powers than the present one, which is, of necessity, a government of the revolution. But the result of the new assembly will be to form a govern ment which will still be limited In power, and whose Important work will be the es- llshment of a permanent and complete government, founded on the lines of that of the U. S., and one which, we hope, and have every reason to believe, will be satisfactory, both to the U. 8. and to Cuba." The prevailing impression in Washington Is that Cuba will remain un der U. S. military government for some time before the Cubans are allowed to make any experiment In the governing line. That there are good tblDgs in a paternal system of government must be admitted by every man who will take the trouble to investigate. The U. 8. consul at Cbemltz, Germany, closes a report to the department of state on the value of the Germau worklngmen's Insurance system, which provides not only for the payment of death indemnity, but for the care of the sick and their families for accidents, old age and Incapacity to work from any cause, by saying: "Whether a system which makes so much for paternalism is one to commend, I cannot say. Its ef fects here have been anything but bad. Poverty, in spite of poor wages, Is prac tically unknown." The fund from which this Insurance is paid comes from both employers and employes, the former pay log one-third and the latter two-thirds. The Insurance is compulsory. Msreary and Venoa. Astronomers generally now admit that the more recent studies of the planets Mercury and Veuus tend to con firm Scl.iaparelli's opiuiou, advanced some years ayo, that both of them turn on their axes once while revolving about the sun. This, however, is a very difficult point to settle with certainty. the reason given for this being, and very plausibly, that the evidence rests upon observation of the exceedingly faint markings upon the disks of the planets, the fact being that very few as tronomers have ever seen them at all with distinctness, and only those who have made a most persistent study of them and are favored with vision espe cially sensitive to such details are com petent to express an opinion as to their correct interpretation. It is argued that if, as held by some, the rotation and revolution periods are the same be a correct opinion, then the climatic conditions of the two planets must be most remarkable. Furthermore, our moon always shows the same face to the earth and no knowledge exists of the hidden part, nor have the supposed Inhabitants of that concealed heml- inhere ever seen the earth. This, how ever, is of no importance to them, aa the earth is not the source of light, heat and life on the moon. All parts of the moou aro brought under the sun's Influence just as all parts of the earth. though the day and night are 14 times as long aa on the earth. But how it must be on a planet which has one aide only exposed to the sun, astronomers can give no answer. Exchange. A Plan mmmrmi.

Speaking of indulgent fathers," said Colonel Calliper, "reminds me of aa old friend of mine named Silas Zing took, who formerly lived in' Storktille Centre, Vfc Onoe when his 'little son Rnf us wanted very much to fly a kite. at a time when he waa not well enough to be permitted to go out Mr. Zingtock rigged up a contrivance whereby the youngster desire could be gratinea in the house. He set up a blower in the back parlor, belted it to an engine in the oellar below, and when everything waa all ready he started the fan and produced a current of air that was ample to float a kite. 'It was great fun for young Hums to it In the back parlor and fly his kite in the front, and for a time everything went all right, but on an unfortunate day Rnfy, not satisfied with the amount of wind the fan was blowing, undertook to make it blow harder, which is some thing that Mr. Zingtock had expressly forbidden. It seems1' that the blower and the boiler and machinery were all much larger than were needed to produce a breeze sufficient to float a kite here, but Mr. Zingtock, who, though rich, was also thrifty, had had a chance to buy this plant second hand cheaper than a new plant of smaller size would have cost, and so he took it and had it set up, and every morning he used to adjust it so that it would not go above a cer tain speed, and several times he had cautioned his son never to touch it. 'About one minute after Rufus did touch it on this morning when he want ed it to blow harder the big fan was go ing at a gait that set np a hurricane in the parlors. It blew the kite against one of the windows and broke that the first thing, and within a minute the pictures were off the walls and their glasses smashed, tables were upset, brio-a-brao was knocked into flinders, and the whole parlor was a wreck, with the big blower going at top speed and churning evervthinsr there into fragments and blowing the debris out of the windows.

I was of course totally unacquainted with the street and when we left the lights of the opera house I felt very much at sea. The houses were dark and I could not Bee the numbers, and it was only by the number that the lady could identify her boarding place, as she bad only been there once. "Ahead of me was a small man.

In few minutes the gentlemen had formed an advance guard in our interest We walked calmly behind while they went in front, on either side of the street. striking matches and looking for the number. There were eight of them, and their matches would go off one after the other. It was a regular flambeau parade. I was overcome. 'Here it is.' shouted an advance scout. "We approached the house rapidly and found the eight gentlemen standing before it. It was almost with emotion that I raised my hat and thanked them for their efforts. 'Nothing at all, ' they said politely, and the entire eight raised their hats and walked into the dark ness. "-Mew Orleans Tunes-JJexnocrat. MUltmiy Cowraara. The question of the comparative pro portion of really brave men in any army will probably never be determined. Great officers on the continent keep their knowledge on that Bubject rigor ously as a professional secret and as sume as a certainty that all soldiers are brave. They know very well, however, that they are not, and when confiden tial will admit, as Marshal von Moltke onoe aid in public, tnat witn a great number it takes discipline, and severe discipline, too, to induce them to face shells unshrinkingly. American officers have been known to acknowledge that of their men, who are as brave as any in the world, 20 per cent would run away if they could, and in every army, even ours, which a man enters only of free will, there is a certain proportion who literally cannot overcome their fears. They are stricken with a sort of paralysis. The proportion is probably not high in any army, the majority, if in health, being able to do their duty and having intense motives to do it, but neither is the proportion high of those who lii TTf who literally Spectator. Friendship For Friends. The dogs of Constantinople are the scavengers of the city. For this reason, as well as from innate humanity, the Turks are tolerant of them, although visitors to the city find them unamia ble. As a proof of their intelligence and recognition of friends Major Johnson relates this experience of his own : Une evening 1 was walking with an English officer, when a dog came up and licked his hand. He told me to notice that she would follow us to the bound ary of her district, as he had onoe petted her and she had never forgotten it. Ex actly as he had said, she followed us a little way and stopped short in the mid dle of the street. She wagged her tail and looked wistfully after us, but did not stir when we called her. A few nights afterward, returning alone to my hotel, I passed the same spot, when I suddenly felt a cold nose put into my hand and a tongue licking my palm. I looked down and saw the same dog. She had recognized me as having been with her friend, the officer, and as before, she followed me to the boundary of her district Tsst Mas. Tent pins are mostly made of white oak. They must be of tough wood to ! stand the hard knocks to which they are subjected. They are made in lengths of 16 and 24 inches. Madeof hard wood as they are they are yet liable to be broken, and they are also lost Even in peace the consumption of tent pins is considerable. A manufacturer of tents might carry in stock 6,000 or 10,000 tent pins. In war times the demand is of course far greater. Like many other manufactured articles of wood, tent pins are made in the west in factories in proximity to the forests whence the supplies of wood are drawn. New York Bun.

Let us see what that acute observer and profound thinker Francois de la Mothe le Vayer said about the Span iards of the eighteenth century : "They are melancholy, treacherous, inhospita ble, miserly, superstitious, importunate in their courtesy, but constant, deter mined, taciturn, admirable foot sol diers, enduring hunger, thirst, all the fatigues of war, accomplishing by the head rather than the hand and gaining more by ruses and stratagems than by open force. The Spaniard is cour teous at the start, contenting himself with remarking quietly all that which is of value in a place, but his leave tak ing is terrible, because it is then that he strikes, pillaging and laying waste without mercy."
