The siege of S'nntlngo will ever bo ro Incinbcrcd fur tlm sufTcrlngs which Iwth Americans and Spaniards were obliged to undergo.

Ucllned women clad in wrapper ami tea frown, with mantillas flung over tlieir heads, walked In the dusty mail. A few vehicle drawn by decrepit horses nnd mules appeared now and then. They were laden with hastily prepared bundle. Hidden in tiiif forlorn rn,tiiingcs w-cre bags and boxea fill ed with Spanish gold, diamonds and jew elry, tho valuables which tho wealthier resident gathered before their hasty tlight. Two miserable burro brought away the contents of the vault of the larp-st hnnk 1ns house in ;mt lap". Sheets and squares of canvas concealed costly plate. At night Women dressed in silk gowns, with fingers , covered with gtittcring jewels, slept on hawls in the mud. liahlcs nestled in odd corners, quietly sleeping or vainly scream ing an Infantile protest against man's in humanity to man. Private WclWiert of tho Ninth regulars tells thrilling story of a hand to hand conflict, llesavs: "There ore throe forts neor Santlaco which tho Americans had to encounter.

PICTURCO IN DREAMS.1 V7oadroa Wars of Cnpid la BrlagiaS Voad Hearts Together. Fire years ago Maggie Ballentino of Montana, Kan., wrote her natuo and ad dress on an egg which she was packing with others in a case in her father's store. It led to her marriage the other day to Ernest Brown of Kansas City after a scries of most romantic circumstances. The particular caso of eggs which Mag gie had deftly packed was shipped to Brown & Son. grocers, at Kansas City. Ernest Brown, a son of tho proprietor, unpacked it. In so doing ho came across tho egg on which tho fair Maggie's name was inscribed. The romance of the situa tion struck hi:n nt once, nnd he removed the contents of the shell and kept it. For three long years he had no other thought of a romantic kind excepting of this un known maiden, whom he had never seen and of whom he knew nothing but the hatno. What wonder that Ernest Brown should dream of Maggio Ballcntine! And so it can 10 to pass that in visions of the night be saw her as she was and as sho was aft erward revealed to him in all tho beauty and charm of living reality. Of course he did not know at the time that his vision was truo and that ho had actually pictured this unknown damsel as she was, but after nwhilo the fact was made plain, and Krnest Brown the dream er liecamo Kniest Brown the lover, filled with devotion and wonder. In the meantime Maggie's fancy was not idle. Mr. Brown h:ul Ixen so deeply Impressed by his dream that ho had writ ten to her r.-questitig if possible tho pleas ure or a mi-cting. rhe hart replied to his letter, but, liko the wiso pirl she Is, had made him no promise. Brown became importunate. lie sent her pleading mes sages and on-M) mailed her a copy of "Oh, Promise Mc!" but Maggie steadfastly re fused to promise anything. She desired to know more about her corresimndent and wrote to a friend In Kansas City avking her to investigate and send her a dcM-Tiption of him. Through a contusion of names tho friend wroto to her concerning a red haired, cross eyed cripplo who drove a delivery wagon. This was a great disappointment to the charm ing Maggie, but she did not despair. One night sho hod a dream a romantic and dclcctnlilo vision in tho course of which she saw h: r unknown lover just as he nftiTwrml appeared when they first met. At that titr.e r.he had not even seen a pnntograpn cr nim. It wns purely a picture of fancy : result, some say, of the intuitive power of love, which enn behold the object of affection In dreams even be fore it has been encountered in reality. Here was a situation indeed. Two young peoplo unknown to each other except in spirit were piiiing for a sight of each oth er, each fet'lin;? certain that to meet would mean love, and each determined that that meeting should take place. What time Ernest Brown was not wrapping packages of groceries nnd inspecting country prod uce he was reading rmtrv. ' And what of Maggie? Something seem ed to tell her that her friend's description of her supposed lover was wrong. Sho determined to investigate, nnd for that purposy shn went to Kansas City during the carnival last fall. After reaching Kansas City Miss Bal lantino livaitiil Mr. Brown r.t the store of his father, a prosperous merchant nt H31 Independence, avenue. Shu entered the place with n party of friends r.nd glanced around to see n bhe could so her mysterl ous sweetheart. Sho readily mturrrifeed him, anil tho recognition was mutual, so accurate wns tho impression mado by the memorable vision in each case. She In vited liim to Iht heme at Montana, and he visiled her for the first time last Faster, in honor of tho egg which hail brought them together in a manner so romantic, SATAN AT SUNNYSIDE. Ho Has Clcren Iloofn, bnt Is Dressed Like a Man. Sunnyside, X. Y., is possessed of the devil. Several womwii of the village have s-cn him. In fact, his Satanic majesty seems to lx partial to tho ladies, pretty and unmarried ones csixi-ially. In this respect ho isn't different from ,-uiy of his clan, but according to Miss Madge Wynne the Sunnysido devil dresses in a fashion peculiar to himself. Vnliko tho red clothed Mephistopheles ol poetry anil tradition, he affects the rcg ul.it mn evening dress of mortals and prowls about in black and patent lenthers. But he is tho devil nevortheliws. for Mifis Wynne vouches for his identity. She sexsrsiDE's hatax. met him the othr night, nnd fcer descrip tion tallies with that given by Miss Mag gio O'Connor and Miss Lydia Fitzgerald, to whom he also paid his respects. This devil always :c8 to Sunnyside In midsummer and remains for a couple of weeks or so, dropping in on tho todies in an informal way and making himself gen erally agreeable after the custom in the warm country he calls home. Miss Wynne says she knows he Is" the devil lwrauise he's got a cloven boof. That was one thing about him she noticed par ticularly. She always hnks at the feet of gentlemen she meets for the first time with a view of determining her course at the next dance both of them might attend.

Transcript. One of these, called sugges tively predator, prefers the phulnnx forma tion. One of its phalanxes, on the march over cicarand smooth ground occupies a space of four to six square yards, the In sects lMing densely massed. While an army of e?ito:ts pngressss in contact or der, skirmishers are thrown tit, and hero and thero a !-.:.;a11 ei.lumn leaves the main bfidy if forag:'. H sotiic very rich plaeo bo found anywhero nir the line of march fir example, a mass of rotten wood abundant in insect grubn a halt Is order ed, and a strong force U concentrated inion It. The nr.ts pcarih every cranny and tear in pieces nil tho lr.rge grubs they drag to light. An nnny of ecitors ns It moves for- wanl clears tho ground of nil animal mat ter, dead or nlivo. Kvery living creature that can get out of the v.tiy does so. It is especially the various trilies of wingless in?ccts that have causo to fear, such as other kinds of ants, hiwvy bodied spiders, maggots, caterpillars, etc. If a man mak ing his way through the tropical forest happens to encounter a marching column af these unts, he is instantly attacked. Xamltrrs of tho ferocious insects swarm up his legs, nnd wherever they find a bare spot they attack it, ench one driving Its pincherlikc jaws Into tho skin and sting ing with its tail with all its might. Tho eciron stings like a lice, being strictly "business" at lioth ends. There is nothing for tho man to do but run for It, and when lie gets to a place of safety he proceeds to pluck off the insects one by one. I. sually in the operation thev are pulled in twain, leaving their heads and jnws sticking In the wounds. Thesemili fc'.ry ants never let go when once they bavo grahbed anything. Dr. H. W. Bates, In his wrrk entitled A Naturalist on the Rivi r An : n. 'de scribes an ntftu-k by n column of ecitons upon a fortress that is a great mound sharicd coinnumal dwelling cf another species of ants. Tho army began its as sault u nor, tho works in a most systematic manner, excavating a scries of mines. Operations were so thoroughly organized that some of the assailants did tho dig' Ring, while others carried away the grains of earth, and others yet brought out tho larva- of young nnts which were found in the cbamlx'rs of the stmcture liesicged. As fast as the larva: were brought out thev were torn to pieces, their weight be ing too great for a single ec Hon to hear. The ecitons ore very small ants, though in some species the big headed "soldiers" are as much as half an inch long. When tho fort had been completely looted, the column marched away laden with tho mangled remains of the victims. These were doubt less conveyed to some conven ient place to be eaten- at leisure. It is not to be supp:eed that there was no defense made liy the tribe of ants thus ruthlessly attacked. On the contrary, tho resistance ofTer-d was very lieree. In ant wars generally the greatest pugnacity and courage are exhibited, the contest lasting sometimes for days and the weaker party ultimately succumbing from sheer exhaus tion nnd decimation. v Fighting ants will suffer themselves to be cut to pieces rather than let go when they have once seia-d an enemy. In Brazil there Is a kind of ant that cap tures and enslaves ants of other species. This is a -formidable Insect indeed, its method of combat being to grasp the bead of a foe in its jaws and to kill by piercing the brain, thus paralyzing the nervous system. Owing to the efficiency of these tactics, a comparatively small force of the lareuiaking ants will fearlessly attack much larger armies, suffering scarcely any loss themselves. In tropical era n tries ants are extremely numerous, nnd wars are constantly in progress. Their military insects hare kingdoms Which ran boast populations as mimcrons as any of the nations of men. In tbn Allcghantes !r. MacCook fnrmd l.W0 huge nests of ' forest ants together, constituting a single empire. Such a kingdom probabiy has from 200,000.000 tq 400,tK0,o00 Inhabitants, all forming one community and living together In actiT and friendly intercourse, while they are I on hostile terms with all other nations of auts, even tbottc of tho same specie. It is known that thefe are at least 8,000 species of ants in the world. The ferocity exhibited by ants In fighting is extreme. the ground after a battle being strews with decapitated bodies, heads and man gled limbs of tho slain. The Insects tight two and two, in the fashion of the duello. All tho evidences are apparent of the ac tion of malignant passions hate, anger, cruelty and destructivencss. The ecitons while on the march not only clear tho ground of everything that lives, bnt climb to the summits of the highest trees, searching every leaf. If they fled a wasps' nest, they gnaw away tho papery covering to get nt tho young grubs, cutting everything to tatters regardless of the infuriated owners who nro flying about. There is a kind of ant known to science as dorymynnos which, though ex tremely mlnate, does not hesitate to tac- klo tho largest Hits, fastening itself upon the enemy and biting off his legs and an tenna;. ....... A field of battle on which these little terrors have fought against an army of wood ants is covered with fragmentary re mains. Sometimes they attack tho har vesting ants, destroying a colony and car rying off all tho stored provisions. These harvesting ants are very numerous tn Texas and are famous for their skill as agriculturists. Thiy plant real fields of grain, cultivating various species of grasses which servo them as cereals. ' W lien tho seeds of tho grasses ripcn and fall to the ground, tho ants carry them tot heir store houses and put them away. Now and then fierce wars occur between two colonies of harvesting ants, which send out armies against each other. The common pavement ants, which throw up little hills of gravid between paving stones and in gardens, are great lighters, and sometimes war breaks out lietwecn two communities of them that live only a foot or two aart. Such conflicts are apt to lie started by the intrusion by nu'iiiliers of one colony into the subterranean galleries of the other. Ants generally when at war make it a rule to carry their wounded oil tho field of battle, but the injured of the enemy they luavo to die or take away to eat. There is nothing very pleasant nlmnt the character of nuts. At the samo time it must be admitted that they have unselfish traits, tho business of rearing tlie young bring conducted by tho workers with in defatigable rare. Customarily they bury their own dead cfter a fight. Those spe cies of ants which have ho sting possess nevertheless a tall gland that secretes formic acid, which evidently Is disngree ablo and perhaps poisonous to insects of this order. In every nnt colony, whatever the spe' cies, there is usually a distinct class of cit izens who constitute a sort of warrior caste, being provided with hugo heads and jaws. T hey do no work whatever, appnr eutly their business being to fight. How ever, thero is a South American species, not at all warlike, which lives in trees. and tho big headed fellows are employed as living stoppers to close up tho small holes of entrance to tho nest. One of tho most remarkable engineering works of ants Is a tunnel that has lxcn mado by tribe of the leaf cutting species under the bed of tlie 1'arahyba river, near Kio, at a place where tho stream mentioned is as broad as the Thames at London bridge. ot far from l'orauntsof this kind pierced the embankment of a largo reservoir, and tho great body of water which it contained escaped lx-foro thedamagecotild be repair ed. These ants have been known to carry off the contents of a two bushel basket of mnndioca mad in a singlu night, taking It grain by grain. While each nation of ants has its stand ing army, tho notion of an unt navy seems hardly credible, yet a well known nnto must s.iys that on one occasion he saw a form idalde body of military ants embark on a lot of chips that were floating slowly down n stream, snljsequently landing at point of considerable distance lielow and proceeding on what appeared to be a foray. It is a fact familiar enough that tiio worker ants, which make up tho main body of each community, are females un developed sexually. Likewise the big headed soldiers seem to to abnormal fa mules a body of nmazons, in a wont WHY MORGAN MOURNS. His Favorite Ball Terrtrr Fatally Whipped by a Maltose Cat. J. P.
