ft MANILA LETTER FROM
Sou of Olio of Sioux Comity's Honored
CIllens-Enlisted In (.'o. A, 1st
Keg. S. I. Voluntfer
Manila, Philipine Islands,
. Oc tolier, HO,
Dear Father and Mother:
As I am feel
ing like I would like to hear from the
outside world, and, as there is no chance
for that, I will drop you a few lines. We
came to Manila from Cavite, about one
month ago. This is quite a city; one
part of the city is walled all around with
a stone wall. That is old Manila. But
we are in Manila, just outside of the
wall. Our quarters at present are in
some rich Spaniards house; everything
is the finest in the land. In front of the
house is a fountain, and the iiouse is
built so that there is an open space io
the middle and there is another fountain,
and tho house is all roahogny and fine
workmanship. On each wall, hangs
large mirror, each one of which would
cost at least' $300, in the States, and
the doors xre sliding doom with glass np-
ier half, and that is all stained and fig
ures of all kinds. And one room is a
bath room; everything marble; there are
tub baths, ihower baths and needle baths,
So you see we are well fixed for bathing'.
The city is lighted up by electricity,
but not very well bh some of the lines
have gone to wreck ince the war broke
out. The city water works are con
Klructod to bring the water from the
mountains about, live miles out. But
the water is bod and needs boiling before
it ii fit to drink.
Th city is very filthy on account of
the town being no low that the drainage
is very poor; most of the out-skirts of
town are swamps.
Here every body lives up stairs, and to
get away from the mosquitos, I guess
a there are plenty of them. And they
are ho large it only takes a dozzen or ao
to carry a man away. Well, you may
rues they are plentiful when the U. 8.
government furnishes mosquito bur for
to keep them away.
And is it hot here? Oh, no! just warm
enough that we have to change clothes
two or three times a day to have them
dry. And as we wear white clothes alto
gether it lakes lots of work to keep them
clean, but our company has got a na

Peace Treaty Ratified.
The Peace Treety, between the United States and Spain, was success- 2
fully rytified Minday 1VU 0th, ia the U. S. Senate, at 3 o'clock by a vote t
J of 57 for, and 27 against, or 3 vots more than the necessary two thirds. C
Thus a long drevm out debate over one of the most important Nation-
al questions in the of our Iiepubljc for years is ended. j
? The treaty has been ratified as it should have bean which is just and 3
i right, and Congress han handle the subject of annexation later on. ?
I A Battle At Manila.
A cable report from JIaj. General Otis, Governor General of the 2
Philppine islands on the 5th irjst. says a battle was fought at Manila, xa S
that day between the insurenf s and the U. S. troops, resulting in the kill-
irig of 15 of our men, and many more of the Philipinfla It also reports
that quiet is restosed for the present at least. .
$1.50, Mexican money ih.t man, per
month, and as one American dollar is
worth two Spanish or Mexican dollars
it amounts to aliout the same tiling
nearly all the money here is Mexican a
native gets about 40c a day for labor if
he is a good worker, but an American
can get 10 or 15 dollars a day, notasa
laborer but in a store or slinging beer;
every store, fruit sUuid and all oilier
places keep liquor since the soldiers got
The horses here are a small class of
poney; smaller than the Indian pony. It
is all one of them can do to carry a malt.
Iist pay day 1 was mounted on one of
them with a government saddle, as pay
master General, you ought to have sen
me, it was k sight never to be forgot tt a
by a western man. I was glad when te
diy was gone. Jf they had wanted rie
the ne.xt day I would hav played sick pr
probablv have got fciok. They use the-'
mostly to drive to a two-wheeled ha.
tho hack fares are regulated by the gov-
eminent and all they cau charge is 87
Mexican cents the first hour and ISc (or
every following hour. j
All the heavy work is done on a two-
wheeled cart drawn by a water buffalo,
they can haul quite a loud. We hardly
ever see a four-wheeled rig or one drawn
by two horses, as only the rich could af
ford them heretofore. The buggies and
carts were taxed according to the num
ber of wheels and so it was that if they
could have run on one wheel they would
have done so.
Besides what soldiers, natives and
Spaniards are here, there are a few Ger
mans, French and 3 or 4 English, yes,
and about 50,000 Chinese and Japanese.
I used to think chickens in the house
was a sign or uncieanuess, out, mat is
nothing these natives keep chickens, cats,
dogs, hogs, lizzards and if they are co'
sidered well otf they have a pet snake or
two, so you can immagine how clean
they are. But their places are palaces
compared to the Chinese dens. I can't
begin to describe them, the only thing I
can say is, that you know I could go
most any place, but I cannot stay iu one
of them places two minutes at a time,
so you can immagine what they are,
This is a great tobacco country ; every
body smokes, men, women and children,
all the same. It is nothing new to see
a child five or six years old smoking a
cigar as large as a hoe-handle, a cigxr
you would have to pay 13 or 20 cents for
can be got here for two or three cents.
There is do chewing tobacco here, only
what we get at the Commissary. Tlie
natives all chew a kind of berry, I have
not tasted any of that yet, as I do not
like the looks of them.
When we came here we had nothing
to do, but now we have to do out post
duty and guard the penitentiary one day
out of every six. The guarding at the
penitentiary is not very hard, a man ia
on guard two hours and off fouHioura,
There are about 1,500 prisoners in the
penitentiary. But, they are all dead tn
love with the Americans. When the
city was taken there were about 500 of
them in irons, and welded on, but they
are all taken off now; it took considera
ble work to cut them off.
The prisoners are allowed 30 Mexican
cents to live on; their allowance before
was 15, so they don't get very fat. In
the prison is an old strangling (garroting)
machine that looks like it had done quite
a little work in its day.
The out post is stationed a short way
from the penitentiary, on the road leading
frun Manila north; about 20. men go out
thoro and one of them stands guard one
hoor t"'! ,n rst nrn ft reserve. All

out into the country and keep any mobs
from corninir to town. Ijist. nirrht nn
of the guards got a little jxcited and
done a little shooting at nothing, at least
when llie'rest of the guard got out there
there was nothing in sight.
The Americans have moved cannons
outside of town as the insurgeants sav
thev are going to take the town, but.
they may change their mind after they
find out we have come here to stay as
long as we please.
You asked if I had joined the sharp-
sliooter.s. ; don't need any now, but if
any trouble comes ofl' that's where I will
be, so the Captain told me a day or two
I will close, hoping to hear from you

How To Flud Out.
Fill a bottle or ramrrion glass with
your water and let it stand twenty-four
lours: a sediment or settling indicates an
unhealthy condition of the kidneys; if it
stains your linen it is eviden ce of kidney
trouble; too frequent desire to pass it or
pain in the back is also convincing proof
that the kidneys and bladder are out of
What TO Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root the great kidney remedy fulfills
every wish in curing rheumatism, pain
in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and
every part of the urinary passages. It
corrects inability to hold water and scal
ding pain in passing it, or bad effects fol
lowing use of liquor, wine or beer, and
overcomes that unpleasant necessity of
being compelled to go often during the
day, and to get up many times during
the night. The Mild and the extraordi
nary effect of Swamp Root is soon realiz
ed. It stands the highest for its wonder
fill cures of the most distressing cases.
If you need a medicine you should have
the best. At druggists fifty cents or one
You may have a sample bottle and a
book that tells more about it, both sent
absolutely free by mail if you send your
address to Dr. Kilmer & Co., Uingliam

mention that you read this generous
olier m the sioux county journal.
The session of the legislature will be
one of the most exciting held for years.
The contest for United States senator
will be a warm one. Nationally there is
mora to interest our citizens than at any
time since the great civil war. Every
man who thinks for himself and wants
his boys and girls to do the same should
have such a paper as the Semi-Weekly
State Journal in his family. That great
est of great western papers, published at
the state capitol, is more in touch with
the great masses of the people and the
questions of the hour than any of its con
temporaries. It is the true and able ex
ponent of western thought and enter
prise. Its facilities for furnishing legis
lative news surpasses all other papers.
It is located on the ground and no matter
what paper you take at other times, dur
ing the legislature you should read the
Journal. Twice a week, it only costs
$1.00. Send $1.00 to the State Journal,
Lincoln, Neb., and you will never regret
