THUGS WERE PEETEOTLT BEEEIE rntll Wayler Forcad tha Inanxsaata to Beaaaaa tka Torch to Prrvrat Land-Owacra from Crradins; Thalr Case Snaaish soldiers Bepreaented aa Kind for Want ofEaoaajb to Eat Some Boa? Predtctloaa, New York, June 3. The following let ter, dated May 10, from General Maximo Gomez to Senor Estrada Palma, the Cuban delegate In this city, was given ont at the headquarters of the Cuban delegation yes terifty. "There is no doubt that the revo lution has successfully gone through Its third period and Is now powerful all over the island. The first period was the out break. In the second was our organiza tion. The third period is marked by the invasion to the west provinces of the win ter cr.mpaign, which has just closed, with no result favorable to the cause of the monarchists in spite of their famous army of 150,000 men and their powerful imple ments of Tar throughout the country. The torch was stopped as soon as the planters were diverted from grinding. Wrylrr Chang the Situation. "Peasant proprietors were carefully respected, and their crops were not de stroyed by the hoofs of our horses. No Cuhnn family had fear of the Spanish soldiers and our wounded were safe. But all this has changed as by magic since Kpnin appointed Weyler to be the peace maker. Disrcgnrdful of the immense in terests that ho compromised it was he who again lighted the torch by his foolish pretension of grinding against the orders of the revolution, and for this reason new cano fields, and even some factories, were destroyed, as also were several towns nnd villages of which the Spanish soldiers had taken possession to depress and cor rupt our families. ' Reprisal is old in war faro. Revolution Proceeds Triumphantly. "Weylcr's work has done the country great harm, and thisis all he has done, for otherwise the liberating army is as mighty as ever. The revolution proceeds on Its triumphal course, and every dny that pasws may be considered a victory now for onr.causc, and any petty loss that we may occasionally have is of no consequence when on the whole we triumph. The revolution thus enters now on its fourth period, in which the conflict will assume a severe character for Spain. Summer is death to them; our soldiers on the con trary are made ft steel and the snn that kills the Spaniard is a friend to the Cuban. Fpanhh Soldiers firarred Into Klndneaa. "General Weyler will go. and it is now snld that Poluviaja will replace him. All to no purpose. What General Martinez Cainposwas notable to do at the begin ning no other will do now. The Spanish soldier is kind and has no enthusiasm to keep his courage up. There is no spirited soldier when his stomach is empty. The Spunish soldier must be paid even for his vices, if he is to be of any good, and Spnin has no longer the money for It. Knows Wayler Too WelL "I made yesterday two prisoners, whom I hardly could decide to go back to their own. They seemed so willing to remain with us and share our abundant food. What I say alxiut General Weyler is from my perfect knowledge of this man's his tory. I am not influenced by passion or hatred. I am simply, one of the few sur vivors of the famous 'Bell of Cosos Ko dondo,' and am not the one t.forgct the Moody scenes of the 'White Bag' in which Weyler was the instrument at Valmareda. Sincerely yours, M. Gomez." SrAXISII OFFICEBS POOR 8TTFF. So Thinks a Correspondent In Cuba of tha London Times. Losnos, June 3. The Times this morn ing publishes some long Havana letters which dwell upon tho incapacity and in action of the Spanish commanders in Cuba. "Everywhere," Tho Times correspondent snys. "the Spanish officers seem perfectly content if they can only hold the ground they stand on." He also tells a ludicrous story of finding a superior oillcer on the line of the new in trenehments across the island sitting in darkness because when his quarters were lighted a few nights before tho rebels fired three shots through his window. ''This military inaptitude," the correspondent concludes, "is the key of the situation. All of the activity, initiative and resource seem to he on the side of the rebels." Illinois Towa Apprala far Help. Chicauo, Jnnc 8. New Bnden, UK, an. peals to the citizens of Chicago, through Mayor Swift, for charity. That it Is mnch needed is evidenced by the piteous appeal received yesterday by Mr. Swift from Louis Butzow. president of the New Bnden village board. Eleven people were killed and hundreds rendered homeless. Mr. Burrow wr".es that half the houses in the town were destroyed. The people are poor and aid should be prompt. Looters Abroad at Sanrca. Skxeca. Mo.. JuneS. AU sorts of evil persons from the Territory have flocked to Seneca and began looting the wreckage thrown np between here and the territory line by Saturday's flood. Marshal Shearer, of Seneca, has placed deputies on gur rd, with orders to shoot any pilferer caught in the act. Aid for the destitute families is slow in coming in. Fifty families are homeless and 100 are destitute. President's Tin Wedding Annlvanary. Washinutox, June 9. Ten years ago yesterday President Cleveland was married In the White House. There was no formal celebration of the tin wedding, bnt Dr. Sunderland, tho minister who united the pair, called and paid his congratulations to the president and- Mrs. Cleveland and the members of the cabinet did likewise. Chicago Commix too Merchant Suicides. Chicago, June 3. Andrew M. Hender son, a commission merchant and mem ber of the board uf trade, committed suicide in Humboldt park yesterday aftt-r-noon by shooting himself in the left tem ple, lioath was instantaneous. Inability ti meet the demands of numerous credit ors is given as the cause for the act. Kratocfcy Democrats, . Lexisgtos, Ky., June 3. Today's Dem or ratter state convention will be harmoni ous and simply a ratification of a major ity of the county conventions held last Saturday. It will be all tUver. There was a time when Senator Ba ton of Gcorgi ware an ornite and lav ish hirsute adornment, and pictures taken at the time he was president ot the Georgia- senate so represent him. Now he contents' himself with a simple mustache. How he happened to shear his beard was told by the senator him self recently. ,- "It vras," he began, "when the roll er skating craze broke ont and invaded the best families in the south. It struck Macon, and somehow it found a victim in me. Everybody was going to the skating rink, and consequently I went I soon acquired a remarkable degree ot grace in gliding dreamily over the floor to the pulsation of exhilarating waits strains, and my company was in great demand by ladies who were still some what distrustful of their own skilL I shall never forget. I was acting as the guardian angel one evening of a lady whose main 6npport I was in her feeble efforts to prevent a collision with the floor, and we were rather tremulously gliding hither and thither among the crowd, when an invalid on skates ap proached ns from the opposite direc tion. I saw at a glance that the man had lost his compass and nothing bnt a blind reliance in providence was defer ring bis falL That moment came when he crushed against me. The collision disturbed the center of gravity in my fair companion, while at the same time it hastened the downfall of the other. Before I knew what was np the man, in order .to save himself, grasped hold of one side of my whiskers, while the lady fastened her grip in the other half, and both held on for dear life while their feet were describing geometrical figures on the slippery floor. Considera tions of gallantry prevented me from turning on the wretched being who was clinging to my beard like the proverbial straw on one side, and there I was with two struggling fellow creatures in the stress of despair dangling on each side of my whiskers. That experience deter mined me to sacrifice the whiskers and to circumscribe my indulgence in that line to a modest, unobtrusive mustache, which affords no comfort to ull filled skaters. "Washington Post. A Conjarer Appears Before the Sultan. The subjoined amusing anecdote is re lated cf a renowned conjurer. He had traveled over almost the whole world, when he sought to try his fortune beforo the sultan of Morocco. After having successfully entertained the powerful ruler with several clever tricks he deter mined upon closing the entertainment with tho following wonderful perform ance. Taking a snow white and a gray pigeon, he appeared to cut off the head of each and then to place tho white head on the gray pigeon, and the gray head on the white pigeon, after which they flew away just as .though nothing had been done to them,,,, . The sultan wan very enthusiastic about this performance, and having ordered two of his eunuchs, a negro and a na tive, to be brought forward he command ed the conjurer to cut off both their heads and exchange them as he had done in the case of the pigeons. The perform er was somewhat taken aback at this peremptory request, but managed to re tain his presence of mind and said through his interpreter: "Pardon, your most gracious majesty, my apparatus today is only arranged for pigeons, and not for men. I require, at least 14 days to prepare for the desired performance. " "Good!" replied the sultan, "the exten sion is granted. " The conjurer hurried from the palace and lost no time in get ting out of the country. What Bats Weigh. "Do yon know tho actual weight of a hat?" queried the spruce salesman as he handed out several "new styles." "People don't generally. I asked a man that question yesterday, and he guessed 14 ounces on that hat, which weighs exactly 4 ; an ordinary silk hat weighs only 7. "I .looked np the matter recently, and so I know precisely. A 'silker' is al most the heaviest hat made, though hunting hats weigh more from their having an inner lining of great stiffness and strength to save a man if he should be thrown on his head. The hunting top hats weigh 10 ounces and the hunting dcrbys 8. A winter derby weighs 5 ounces, varying a quarter ounce either way for size, and a summer soft felt 3 ounces. When it comes to women's headgear, there are all sorts of weights, though seldom does a woman's hat of any kind run more than 7 ounces. It depends on the kind of trimming and fallals. Some ribbons are heavy, and so are some arti ficial flowers. Jet is heavy too. The av erage little bonnet weighs 2 ounces to 2Js, trimmed 'sailor' 8 J and a 'Sen tM'tt' (the kind that have brims stiffened with glae) 4?." New York Herald. Powder MUls the Batter Blaka. A well knowu insurance broker said, in speaking of fire insurance risks: "Contrary to the general idea, insuf anco companies would rather take a risk, on a powder magazine or a powder manufactory than on an icehouse. In the case of a powder manufactory there is the greatest care taken by those who work in it or who visit it. There is no need of signs hanging about warning persons not to smoke, for they would never run the risk of entering with a cigar or pipe, cvSn if the rules of the place allowed it. Now with icehouses it is different Go into any of them and yon will find the no smoking signs in plenty. There is bnt little care, how ever, for many people think such places will not burn. They do burn, how ever, and the result is the insurance companies charge the higher risk cn icehouse property." Washington Star. Pursue not a victory too far. He hath conquered well that has made bis ene my fly; thou mayest beat him to a des perate resistance, which may ruin thee. George Herbert Dock. There is an Episcopal minister on tha north side who has two sons, IS and 1 1 years old respectively, of whom he la very prona. me responsimtity or rear ins two arms that ther tni, rat mu. ments to society is deeply impressed up on the good man, and he watchea his ncrya wiin a jeaions eye, rearing that they mar be twonsht under harmful in fluences. One morning he called the boys at the usual hoar, and when he had satiFfird himself that they were np ne rerumea to nis morning paper. Thir ty minutes passed, bat the boys did not came down stairs, and, thinking they were -np to some mischief, he went quietly to their room, opened the door, and was startled to see them sitting np in bed with a deck of cards between them, nlavinir seven-nn. Hn did not nr anything further than to tell them that Dreajnast was ready, bnt he immedi ately sought hiswif9 and confided to her what he had discovered. They held a consultation ana aecidea that it would be best far the mother to talk to them. When the morning meal was finished, she talked with her boys long and seri ously on the evils of card playing, and concluded by saying that she would trust to the elder one to diannan nf tho deck they had some time during the a ay. w ita mat tne subject was dropped until evening. At the dinner tnbla aha said to him, "Harold, did yon dispose 01 tnose caras.' "Yes, mother." "Did yon destroy them?" "No." "Well, how did yon dispose of them?" "I sold them to the Baptist minister's son for 10 cents," was the reply. Chi cago Inter Ocean. KapM Photography. Professor E. Mache of Prague is cred ited with some remarkable achievements in the Hue of rapid photography. Thns the flight of a projectile has been fas tened on a sensitive plate, the exposure being estimated at probably about one thousandth of a second. In taking this picture Professor Macbe succeeded not only in showing the projectile proper npon the negative, but he also shows the air currents, and the condensing of photograph, it is thought; might explain the luminous tail on comets and on meteors, which are presumably projec tiles hurled through infinite space npon a larger scale. Another of these photo graphic achievements is air occasioned by the flight of aleaden ball. Its current of air is diverted to all sides at an angle of about 45 degrees to the axis of the projectile, and the whirlwind in its wake shows particles of dust and other atoms carried in tho atmosphere, driven with au energetic motion in tho road wmcn tne projectile has just left, and following it with almost the same rapid ity. Oreciaa Marriage Caatoma, At wedding feasts in Morea tho bride nnd bridgreoom stand npon a sofa or a tox, while the guests gather around singing and making speeches in their honor. Rice and cotton seeds are thrown after the departing pair. Upon her en trance to the new home the. bride must drink a glass ot honey and water, that her words may always be sweet. Often the door sill is smeared with honey. In Rhodes the bridegroom, dipping his fin gers in. nectar and tracing a cross on his door, says to the bride, "Be good and sweet as honey." Then he crashes a pomegranate and enters the house. In some parts of the country, when the bridegroom enters the bride's house he breaks a stick on the doorstep to show his power over his furore wife In all parts of the country the bride is sup posed to behave very humbly. At the feast she usually sits in a corner on a pile of cushions, while her new lord sits in the center of tho gathering. The gnests carry away small honey cakes or little white satin bags of candy, which are really very pretty. In the island of Cyprus the groom is carried to his wed ding in the arms of his friends. . If he comes from a distance, however, he en ters on horseabek, and the youths of tho bride's hamlet try to pull him from his horse, bnt it is his aim to ride proudly up to her door and bear her away in triumph. - Sometimes the shepherds pretend to carry away their brides, but tho resist ance is only feigned, and 0110 who has seen all these odd things says the rnork resistance usually ends with tho words, "Drive on and ucver mind my tears.
