just received from Iloilo, isl
and of Pan ay, say that at 1 o'clock on
the evening of Sunday, November 26,
the Eighteenth regiment encountered
an entrenched force of the enemy at
Pavia, who opened a heavy fire. The
leading battalion replied and after
several volleys the Nineteenth flanked
the Filipinos, driving them out of

General MacArthur is now in

country on both sides of the Manila

A cordon from San Fabian to San
Isidro covers all the roads and occu
pies all the towns on the line. The
American policy is to prevent any
m re insurgents escaping to the north
and to force them toward the country
west of the railroad.
Major March, with a battalion of
tho Thirty-third infantry, occupies
Vigan, having made a forced march
from San Fabian. The remainder of
the regiment is on the way. General
Young, with a handful of cavalry and
the Macabebes, is in Vigan and Lieu
tenant Colonel Howse, with four deci
mated companies of the Thirty-fourth
infantry, barefooted, is struggling
toward Vigan and Aliga. When last
reported he was within fifteen miles
of his destination. There are 5,000
Spanish prisoners in Abra province,
whose release through the military
operations is expected soon. It is
learned that Aguinaldo bad a large

Captain Fowler had been warned by
the natives that he and his men would
be exterminated. The guides deserted
them before Mangatarom (or Manga
laron) was reached. All Alejandrino's
nrtillprv was focused on the main
street along which the Americans ad
vanced. The guns were manned by
Spaniards who said afterward that
they had fired over the heads of the
Americans, as they desired that the
latter should win, hoping thus to gain
their own freedom. In the terrified
temper of the insurgents, who run at
the sight of an American, a single
company might go anywhere in the
north now, according to Ciptain

Past Twenty-Foor Hoar. Do Not Work
Mach Ctaane In Patient.
Nebraska City, Nov. 30. The con
dition of Senator Hayward this even
ing shows little change from what it
was twenty-four hours ago. He passed
an uncomfortable night and has been
very restless and uneasy today. Dr.
Whitten spent most of the night at
his bedside and has watched him
closely during the day. At 6 o'clock
tonight he issued tho following bulletin:
Senator Hayward has had a very
restless day, having slept very little.
His temperature is 103, pulse 89, reg-
lar and softer than in the morning;
respiration 24 and still intermitting.
He is more conscious of his condition,
as he manifested more concern about
himself. Paralysis remains the same."
The fact that tho patient is more
conscious of his condition is taken by
Dr. Whitten as a good evmptom, in
that it shows that his mind is brighter
and more free, indicating partial ab
sorption of the clot, and yet if he be
comes greatly concerned and worried,
the effect is likely to be unfavorable.
Major E. B. Hayward, the senator's
brother, together with his wife, ar
rived from Davenport, la., at 9:30 this
morning and has been at his brother's
bedside almost the entire day. The
scene in the Bick room upon the ma
jor's entrance was very affecting. Sen
ator Hay wardTecognized his brother
instantly and apparently made a su
preme effort to speak to him. Failing
to utter a single intelligible word, he
burst into tears and could not be
quieted for some time. Mrs. Hayward
was prevailed upon to take a few hours
rest last night and, as a consequence,
is feeling much better, physically, to
day. However, her concern about her
husband's condition is as great as ever.

Rencarkable Escape of a Kaffir from a
An interesting tale comes from
Mashonaland, in which a lion and a
Kaffir figure. The story is vouched for
by Dr. R. Brown, a well known writer
on South African topics. The Kaffir
was visiting some friends at a distance
and was horrified -while resting near
a small pool to see a large lion watch
ing him from the other side. Unfor
tunately the man had laid his loaded
gun beyond his reach, and at sign of
reaching for it the lion roared men
acingly. The situation now became
extremely' painful If not for the lion,
at least for the man. for, putting aside
the imminent prospect of beinqj de
voured, the rock on which he sat, ex
posed to the glare of an African sun,i
was so hot that he could scarcely bear
to touch it with his naked feet. But
the enemy was Inexorable. Any exhi
bition of an intention to seize the
weapon was followed by a warning
roar, so that the man had all day long
to temper the almost intolerable heat
of the rock by placing one foot on an
other, until by evening both feet were
so roasted that he had lost any sense
of pain. The Hon seemed to have on
ly recently dined, otherwise It la ex
tremely unlikely that it would have
displayed such tolerance to Its helpiass
vis-a-vis. At noon it walked to the
pool to drink, looking round every few
steps to watch the Kaffir, and when
he reached for his gun, turned In a
rage, and was on the point of pouncing
upon him. Then, quenching his Thirst,
the vigilant brute came back to its old
post. Another night passed, but
whether the- Kaffir slept or not he
could not tell. All he knew was that
it must have been at very short inter
vals, and with his eyes open, for he
always saw the lion at his feet. Next
forenoon the animal went again to the
water, and while there, hearing ap
parently some noise In an opposite
quarter, disappeared "in the bush. The
man now made an effort to selza his
gun, but, on attempting to rise, he fell,
his ankles being apparently without
power. Hower, he got the musket,
and crept to the pool to drink, deter
mined, if the lion returned, to dis
charge the contents of his weapon in
to it. But it did not appear. Theu.

The Scotch are fond of telling sto
ries which illustrate the peculiar sim
plicity of mind of their ccr-ntry peo
ple. This simplicity at least saves tftem
from wicked guile. One of these sto
ries relates that an hc-nest mason once
had a contract to build a small house
of stone. He came early and began
from the inside to lay the stone, work
ing very fast. At noon his young son
brought him his dinner, peeping over
the wall as he handed the basket to his
father. With honest pride in his eye,
the mason looked over to the boy.
Weel. Jock, hoo d'ye think I m get
ting on?" he asked. "Ye're getting on
famous, feyther," answered Jock, look
ing at the solid wall, in which there
was no break "but hoo d'ye get oot?"
The mason looked around. It was true.
He had provided the house with no
door at all, and he was on the Inside.
He looked kindly and very admiringly
at the boy. "Mon, Jock, ye've a great
held on ye!" he exclaimed. "Ye'll be
an architect jet, as sure as yer fey
ther's a mason!" Another story shows
how unsuccessful as a thief the rustic
Scot may be. Two young plowmen
went into a garden at night to steal
gooseberries. The bushes surrounded a
plot of potatoes, and as one of the lads
groped about he got a handful of po
tato plums, which he quickly put Into
his mouth. Then he gasped to his
comrade: "Oh, Jock, I'm poisoned!
For ony sake, shove me through the
hedge again, for I waudna like to dee
i' the auld man's garden!"

DOGS USED IN THE KLONDIKE.
old Seekers Find "Slwaah" Canines to
Be of Great Value.
If you are going to prospect in
Alaska and expect to travel much a
pair of good "Siwash" dogs are very
essential almost Indispensable. These
dogs greatly differ from our domesti
cated dogs, taking to the harness like
a duck to water. They do not bark at
strangers. They are kind and affec
tionate, showing the wolf in them only
among their kind. It seems to be
against their principles to get off the
trail to let another team pass. This
means a fight, an exciting episode if
the teams number five or six dogs
each. In an instant the wildest con
fusion takes Dlace. Docs, harness and
each driver with a club in his hand
form one grand lumhle from which
order can only be restored by some of
the dogs being knocked senseless. The
dogs are trains tn "e" and "haw
like an the word
"whoa'." "Mush" is the word used gen
erally by the whites to Indicate go
ahead, a perversion of the Indian word
"Husch." The dogs prefer their mas
ter, but if loaned for use they work
as faithfully as for their master.
While visiting this country, Dickens
one morning receiving a letter purport
ing to have been written by an Eng
lish laboring man and his wife, in
which, in rough phraseology, they
stated that they heard a great deal re
specting the beautiful books he had
written, and the good he had done for
"us poor folks," and asked his permis
sion to name their little baby boy after
him, promising to so educate him that
he might fully appreciate the works of
the novelist. Dickens sent a lettei
stating that be was proud to know that
his name had been conferred- on the
child in recollection of his writings,
and wishing that the little one mignt
become all that his parents hoped to
see him. adding that if he could ever
learn that he had been the means of
awakening In the little one any new
love for his fellow-creatures, and a de
sire to help them with his sympathy,
he should feel much pleasure in the
knowledge. This first letter, it ap
pears, was merely a subterfuge on the
nart of the son of an officer in the ar
my" who was desirous of obtaining the
autograph of the novelist for his col
lection. He was ashamed or tne mean
trick he played upon Dickens, but from
it he gained a far higher appreciation
of the character of the writer than ne
otherwise might have had.

Th Risk of Belli Murdered.
About 1,000 murders occurred In
England and Wales during the last
period of five years for which facts
are available. There were, during the
same time, nearly 160.000.000 persons
of all ages exposed to the risk of being
murdered, that is 30,000,000 in any one
year. The yearly risk of being mur
dered is, therefore, only the very
small degree of probability expressed
by the odds of one to 150,000, and If
a lifetime be counted as 100 years, the
chance of being murdered some time
Is only one in 1,500.
