The ngageiuent took place Inside
the harbor of Cardenas. The gun
boat Wilmington, the torpedo boat
Wlnslow and the gunboat Hudson
were the only vessel engaged. They
entered the harbor for the purpoie of
attack i it; mniii Spanish gun boat
which were known to be there. These
latter, however, were not discovered
by the American force until the Span
lard opened fire. The Innd batteries
ot Cardenas supported the tire of the

eon were ahead unci opened fire upon
the Spanish boats, which were lying
at the docks. The tiring began at a
range of 3, ioo yards.
A few minutes later the Wlnslow
came up aud also opened lire. In aa
Instant the entire attention of the
Npaniith gunboats and laud batteries
was directed upon her.
From all sides shot and shell poured
In on the little torpedo boat. The
Wilmington and the Hudson still kept
up their fire, but they could not turn
aide the terrible storm of tire and
death pouring iu upon the torpedo
KNOCKED OCT HKR HOIMCR
The crew of the Winslow, however,
ever faltered for a second. At 2:4.1 a
olid shot crashed into the hull of the
Wlnslow aud knocked out her boiler.
In an Instant she began to roll and
drift helplessly. Then there was a
moment of awful suspense. A fierce
cheer of triumph went up from the
Spaniard on the gunboats and in the
batteries and again a storm of fire
waa opened upon the helpless boat.
The gunboat Hudson, which waa
lying near by, started to t he assistance
f the Wlnslow. She ran alongside
the torpedo boat aud tried to throw a
line to the imperiled crew. Up to this
time with the exception of one shot,
which disabled the boiler of the Win
blow, the firing of the Spanish gun
boats had been wild, but as they saw
the Winslow rolling in the water they
sighted closer and the shells begun to
explode all about her.
TRIED TO RKSCI K THE M EX.
It was difticult for the Hudson to
get near enough to throw a Hue to
the Winslow' crew, so terrible waa
the fire all about her.
Finally, after about twenty min
utes, the Hudson approached near
enough to throw a line.
Ensign Bagiey and six men were
standing in a group on the deck of the
"Heave her, heave her!" shouted
Bagley, as he looked toward the com
mander of the Hudson and called 'for
"Don't miss it," shouted an officer
from the Hudson, and with a smile
Bagley called back. "Let her come.
It'a gettin? too hot here for comfort"
A SHELL IX rHEIIl MIDST.
The line was thrown and about the
came instant a shell burst in the very
midst of the group of men on board
Bagley was instantly killed and a
few others dropped about him. Half
a dozen more fell groaning upon the
blood-stained deck. One of the dead
men pitched headlong over the side
of the boat, but his feet caught in the
Iron rail and he was hauled back.
Bagley lay stretched upon the deck,
with bis face completely torn away
and the upper part of his body shat
tered. AT MERCY OF SPANISH GUNS.
It was a terrible moment The tor
pedo boat, disabled and helpless,
rolled and swayed under the fury of
the fire from the Spanish gunboats.
When the shell burst in the group
on board the Winslow, another wild
shout of triumph went up from the
t-puii j.li bout aud batteries and again
a heavy Ire u opened oo the tor
Finally, the Hudson succeeded In
getting a line on board the Wioslow

The wounded are:

fireman; F. Gray and Lieutenant J. 1 1.
All are slightly wounded eieept
Patterson, whose condition is serious.
Ensign Bagley was appointed from
North Carolina on September ?, Isltl,
and had l-eeu out of the naval acad
emy only one year.
At 3 .'.0 p. in. the Hudson managed
to get another Hue on the deck of the
Winslow, but there were only three
men left at that time to make it fast
Til E WINSLOW TOWED OCT.
The Hue was finally secured and tho
Winslow was towed up to Pedras
Island, where she was anchored with
her dead aud wounded on her deck.
Then some men from the Hudson
went on board the Winslow and took
the most seriously wounded men off.
Three who were taken on board the
gunboat Machias died shortly after
want At U:15 o'clock last night the Hud
son, with the dead bodies and some of
the wounded, started for Key West,
arriving here al B o'clock this morn
ing. THE COMMANDER'S STORY.
Lieutenant Bernardou of the Wins
low was wounded In the left leg, but
not seriously. Lying In the cabin of
the Hudson he told the story of the
fight He uld:
"We went into the harbor under
orders. The torpedo boat Winslow
wa the worst Injured. She had five
of her men killed and I don't know
how many injured.
"The Wlnslow wa ordered by tho
commander of the Wilmington to go
In to th hsrbor of Cardenas and at
tack the Spanish gunboats, We
steamed In with full head and were
fired on as soon as we came In range.
The Spanish gunboats were tied up
at the docks and had a fair range on
us, The batteries on shore also opened
on us, and 1 think we received most
of the fire. I don't know whether
snv one was hurt on tho Wilmington
or on tlte Hudson, but I think not
"I have no fault to find with the
Winslow's crew. They acted nobly
all the way through. The men who
were killed fell at the same time. We
were standing In a group, and the aim
of the Spanish was perfect A shell
burst in our very faces"
The success of the American ships
In every action thus far has been so
overwhelming that it is hard to realize
that death has at last come to some of
Ensign Bagley was about 26 years
old, and while the fleet was stationed
here he was one of the most popular
men in the service. The news of his
death came as a terrible shock to all
who knew him. It has always been
a foregone conclusion that the
torpedo men were among the first to
fall, as their work is most dangerous,
but In spite of this, when the fleet was
stationed here and changes in assign
ments were frequently made, all the
young men of the service were eager
for torpedo boat duty.

fight Her smokestack is punctured
with bullet holes and her cabin and
deck are smashed and splintered.

"The Mammoth Cave of Kentucky,"
by John It. Proctor, In tbe Century.
In a recent lecture Prof. A. P. Brown
ot Philadelphia described the methods
now practiced for making artificial
gems. Although minute diamonds can
be made, with the aid of the electric
furnace, none large enough to be em
ployed In Jewelry have yet been pro
duced. But rubies of large size, and as
One in color and avpearance as the
best natural gems, have been made.
Tbe ruby Is composed of oxide of alum
inium. A certain method of detecting
artificial rubles is by examination with
b microscope. The natural gem is al
ways filled with minute cracks. Invis
ible to tbe naked eye, but perfectly dis
cernible with a high magnifying pow
er. The artificial ruby has no cracks,
but, on the other band, is filled with
minute bubbles, or gas-holes. This
test, according to Professor Brown, is
the only one by which the best artificial
rubies can be distinguished from tbe
same gems as nature makes them.

Church Hurled In tha Hand.
Engineering Magazine: There are
several instances where lighthouses
have been increased in height because
of the sand which has engulfed thera.
In one place on the New Jersey coast
I once stumbled upon the corner of an
old rail fence which had been buried
and exposed again on the ocean side.
It marked the site of an old field. On
the North Carolina dunes, chimneys
projecting above the sand belong to
the houses of an eld fishing village. In
France and other parts of Europe vil
lages have been burled. At Soulac in
Gascony a cross was discovered pro
jecting above the sand. Further in
vestigation showed that it was attach
ed to a steeple, and later a well-preserved
church of the thirteenth cen
tury was excavated. The church is
now in use.
Telephone Rates In Swltserland.
The Swiss government has put into
force a new telephone tariff. The for
mer charges for the use of a telephone
were 80 francs (.$16) per year. The
new rate is only 40 francs ($8) per
year. This gives the subscriber con
nection within tbe town where he
lives. As In the t'nited States, an ex
tra charge is made for connection with
points outside the limits of the city or
township where the subscriber resides.
But these charges are also vastly low
er than here. The switching charges,
with a three-minute time limit, are as
follows: Six cents for up to thirty-one
miles, 10 cents up to sixty-two miles,
and 15 cents for greater distances.
The World' Alphabet.
The Abyssinian alphabet consists of
208 characters, each of which is writ

Chaldee a.id anmrltan, 22 each;

Skates of Olaas.
Through persistent experimenting a
process has been discovered by which
glass can be hardened to the consist
ency of steel, and its first practical ap
plication is being given to the manu
facture of skates. The product has so
many advantages that it is certain of
being a successful competitor of steel
skates, it having already withstood
satisfactorily all the tests to which It
has been submitted. It is of lower
cost, much moi durable, lighter and
