On Tuesday morning hand ful of burning hemp were thrown Into tho barrack from the Insurgent la the church and soon the soldiers' ref uge was on fire. All effort to subdue the flro failed and finally tho little baud made a dasli for the river bank. Some were killed before the bank was reached, others fell dead In n boat In which thy were attempting to make the opposite shore and when a trench finally whs dug with bayonet there were only sixteen of tho thirty one left to man It. Hero for two more days Corporal Carson, handling his men wtlh tho Judgment of u veteran, held out under a terrible fire until Lieut.

He tried to reconstruct the wreck of his manhood, but hi brain was still In n whirl, and those shrieking shells outdde still seometl to be telling the world that bo was a miserable coward. A man was handing round sems broth. He had been hours without food, and the savory odor caused a craving hunger to take possession of him.
