'With tba intensity of a tropical day ib.fi rnn nccnicd to expend its entire force of furnace bent tinon the unshel tered pot in front of Santiago, where lay f. grievonoly Tvonndtd American oldier toy. Tho wide, tortnrcd eyes of the yonth stared fearfnlly upward to the glazing zenith, riant thn ftitil birds ivntcbinfr his gnlTcrings whh calcnlat inp; vitiun and waiting for their hnmnn feast which eeemcd snre to coine. He thonght with sickening brain of his northern botue the green hills, the running streams, the dear mother. Team welled np into his aching orbs, nnd the hot drops crept down his checks. Ila did not try to wipe them nway. lie could not. A Mauser Imllct had struck liini in tho thih, another in the right tirut and another in the luft. lie was heirless. Ent what matter 1 Tho dead could net see, nnd the mother wonld probably never know how be had nobly fought even to the gates of death. At bis foot lay the dead body of a Cuban, black and burly, slain by the bullet of a Spanish sharpshooter. For these Cu bans be vuís dying, for them he bad come to help free the island from the tyrnnny of Spanish rule. Then be recalled the events of that day at San Jnnu bill. The American troops had been on their feet uince day brenfc. -There was a scanty breakfast, and as the men ate it there were indi cating of the coming clash of arms. The tries on the march to the firing lino wero closed np. Every sense was alivo. The bngle sounded, and then came the order to advance. The tempest of mus ketry and shrapnel tlirongli which they moved forward drove like a storm of steel into tho faces of the men, but nothing could resist the imperious ad vance, and the first line of the enemy was swept away. The battle grew. Here and there a soldier went down, but the column stood firm. The officers marched close by the men. Sometimes throngh the smoke they caught a gliinpee of the colonel leading on in front The din increased. The earth seemed reeling underfoot Shells burst with horrid shriek and filing ont quick . death. Still the men pnshed on. An officer picked up the gun of a man who had fallen and spoke a cheery word. The Spanish artillery and the far reaching Mausers swept within a cer tain limit every inch of ground, but with a firm and rapid step that unflinch ing coin ni n moved forward. Louder grew the tumult, and thicker came the angry messengers. A sharp cry of pain, and one of the men is help ed to the rear. The bullets came hotter and faster from tho Spanish in the trenches and from the blockhouses. More comrades stretched out qnietly with the death mark on their faces. There was no time for words only a mad swelling of the heart and a throb bing of the brain. A deadly thirst for blood dried np all other feeling as an other man was lifted back. Suddenly a cool voice they had heard before rang ont an order: "Como on, boys I Charge I" And tho thin line rushed through the smoke and advanced np the bill With a cheer they answered the fiery blunt that swept into their faces with sudden fury. The air seemed in stinct with leaden life, and volley after volley pealed forth from the deadly rifles. For one awful moment the men fal tered! Uroansof agony and hoarse com mands mingled, and all around Ameri can soldiers lay down to die. But the check was only momentary, and on into the jaws of death the column went Every man leaned forward as though breathing a heavy wind. From right, kit and front they felt the pounding of the enemy's guns, and shrapnel swept ths. ngb the ranks like baiL On the summit of the bill the block house swarmed with the foe, di'nly seen through puffing lines of smoke from our go us. The Spanish were intrenched Americans iu tbe open. Eat never mind I Forward! And soon the foreign fou was driven back and the stronghold cafitnrtd. Half way down the slope, as the vic tors pursued the flying enemy, with ering blast of Mauser bullets swept acrofs the open gronnd. and the boy who now lay dying in the open space in the tall grass fell forward with a ball in his thigh. A comrade ran to bis as iatnuce, and be made bis way painful ly to the rear, but as he passed ainrf nnnth-r Spanish bullet struck him in the rtp.M arm, and rretrntly he was wonndcil 2 tho left. Then his dny of battle was done, nnd the bl.ick hours of unconsciousness fulluwcd. i When reason returned the sounds of battle bud ceased, nr.d he wondered Where bis comrades wero. Wero they all dead! Would they fourth for hiiu t He was alive, but be know that death wonld come in a few short hours. How hot the sun beat down! How still tv erything seemed to him no whizzing of bullets in the sir, nor shriek cf screaming shell, nor the ycil of charg ing troops nothing but the silence of an ocean of grans. There was the dead Cuban lying ot bis feet a ghiietly -. bunch of mortality. How big arid black ' be was! His eyes were staring at him . like balls of glass I What "vero they staring at him forT The night was com- j ing on apucc would he ' havo to lie iu 1 the tall grass nntil the morrow t He, cunlil not tell. And then the dark cloud Again settled o'er bis senses nnd it was benrs before the lilit came into his soul. I Death's door is a mirror nnd the dy- 1 Ing have good memories. Whe:i con- cciousness returned tho boy's mind went back to bis home. He wondered if all was well on the old farm, where he and his mother and brother had lived in peace until tho war with Spain called him to the front. He had a letter in bis pocket from home be would read it a;:uin. Cut. nlnsl Le cculd not reach bis pocket both arma were disabled a id iu t'je inky di:rknesd he could not sen. How long since had he left hornet TBreo mouths t only three nionthsl And now lie lay dying in his young man hood. He remembered the uiorniig that ho left his home. The birda were sing ing i. nd nature was at her best. The fields were clothed in creen nud the brook Boitly murmured over the pnbhles at the bottom. Ho had donned bis new uniform, nnd be felt a littlo sharp pang as he left his home. He remembered it all very well. "Ooodby, Dill," he had said to bis brother. "T:iko pood care of mother." "Look ont for Spanish bullets and briu'? back n machete," said Bill. "I'm off. mother. ' "Goudby, my sou. Be brave and serve your country like n man. " Thea she embraced and kisecd him, and tho part ing w3 over. The eld fcense cat rubbed agniutt him r.nd purred as if to bid hiiu godspeed. 1-1 i a faitbfnl eld dog followed biin down tho lane, but with steru words bis mas ter drovo him back. At tho edge of the town n blue eyed, fair haired girl stcod at the gate. "Are yon really going to fiíht the Spanish, JohnT" "Yes. Helen, and I havo come to say goedby. " There was then a hasty kiss, a wnrui prcrsure of hunda, and thus be left home. Everything was so hushed and dark now. Vi.a the whole world dead t Why was he lying helpless here! How had it happened t Then he remembered the furious charge across the open field, up the hill and over tbe crest in tbe face of a rain of Spanish bullets. The air hum med and whistled. From the trenches and blockhouses the Mausers spit at them. Then the blow came to him. It was u tcrriblo shock. It seemed to lift him from his feet nnd double him np nnd pitch him forward; then tho pain ful journey to the rear, two more bullet wounds, and then unconsciousness. Now he was dying in tbe darkness. How strange it nil wabl That dead Cu ban how black be looked, and how his eyes glared 1 There wan a tiny hole in hiu forehead where life had leaped throngh. Some ono was crying for wa ter. Was it himself? He could not tell. The night was getting cold, and the heavy dew made the tall grass soggy. There were no stars to watch him. Would nobody help him? Harkl That was his dog howling, and how loud it was! How weak and dizzy he felt "Ooodby, Bill." , He could not seo. Everything was growing dim. "Farewell, mother! Helen" And the deep, dank grass waved a weeping requiem to another brave yonug soul. Detroit Free Press. Cut nnd linn. "Cut and run" originated in a pe culiar custom of the Egypt iun embalm ers. A low caste was employed to make the first incision iu the corpse, a process viewed with much dislike by the peo ple, who held him accursed who should mutilate the dead. As soon bb the fol low had made his "cut" he bad to run throngh a storm of curses, stones and sticks. Ho "cut" for a living and bad to "run" to save bis lifo. The tree origin of the expression "to dun a man" is curious. In the reign of Henry VII a bailiff of Lincoln named Joe Dun v. us so active and clever in collecting debts that it became a prov erb when a person tired to avoid pay ment, "Why don't you Dun him?" "Hohson's choice" is dorived from one Hobson, who used to lot out horses for hire, and who obliged ever person who wanted one to take that next the stable door, being the one that had tak en tbe most rest Chicago Tribune. America In Old World Errs. "Last year," says tho Chicago Times-Herald, "the United States oc cupied only 44 pages of the space in the world's great annual, 'The Statesman's Year Book,' and these followed Turkey in the alphabetical arrangement of its contents, This year 282 pages and four maps are devoted to what amounts to a comprehensive register and review of our government, politics, commerce, Industry, social condition, resources and progress. And as If to emphasize the new departure the new data pre cede all tbe rest and have a special in dex of their own. Such Is the revolu tion wrought in the old world attention to American affairs by tbe remarkable year of stress and expansion through which we bar just passed." Br. Cough one!
