which Spain, through him, offerod to
them, lie added:
"Notwithstanding the examples in
rigor set by other colonial nations, I
attend to the reconstruction of the
wealth of the island. This was the
purpose which inspired my last de

in Cuba, concluding with the remark:
"I eomo to bring peace cr war. If
the former is accepted, we will then

desired, behind me corao forty battal

of Weyler's general staff and private
secretary to the commander-in-chief,
will go to Madrid this week as the
bearer of confidential dispatches to
Premier Canovas and tho Spanish war
department, in which demands will be
made for 40,000 additional recruits.

that agents of the American sugar

to prevent by special- decree foreign

a despcrato attempt to rob tho Butt,
county bank at Belle Fourche. En
tering tho bank with revolvers drawn,
Ihoy ordered the customers present
and bank officials to hold up their
hands. A llttlo hesitancy on the part
of Cashier Marble drew a shot from
the gun of 0110 of the robbers, which
chipped off a largo portion of tho
cashier's right oar and enforced com
pliance with the com in and. Tho safe
and countorn wcro rcllovcd of tho
cash they contained, and the robbers,
mounting their horses, which had
been convonlontly stationed near,rodo
An alarm was Immediately given,
Mid in a few minutes a well mounted
and armed posso came up with tho
fugitives and a running fight ensued
which resulted in one of tho robbers
throwing up Iris hands and surrender
ing. The others being better mounted
continued their flight, but are now
being closely pursued and hnnto Very
few chances of escaping. Tims day
was favorable for a raid on the bank,
as the weather was such that li kept
tho townspeople off tho street, and
the robbers had llttlo opposition and
had quite n start before tho' alarm
could be given.
There were fivo men In, tho party
tvho made the assault on the bank.
An unusual display of flroarmson their
part attracted tho attention of A.
Giles, a merchant, who surmised that
something was wrong and gavo an
alarm. GUos was made tho target for
a volley from the robbers' pistols, but
escaped uninjured. Pursuit was
prompt, the bandits having barely
timo to unhitch their horses and
mount beforo being surrounded. In
tho fight that followed Waltor Cay oi
Cay & Sons wns shot through the
cheok, receiving a painful wound.
Tho outlaws fired right and left while
riding out of town, but no one else
was wounded. Thomas Day, tho cap
tured robber, was overhauled half a
mllo from town, and is now in jail at
Deadwood. lie is a strangor in tin
vicinity. The rest of the gang are
now at Bay at the Three V ranch, a
few miles from Belle Fourche, where
thoy will likely be enptured or killed.
It transpires that less than 873 was
taken from the bank, tho cashier,
Arthur Marble, having b1 11 rained shut
and locked the doors of tho vault at
the entrance of the robbers. Ho was
fired on three times, only one shot
taking effect. Ho tried to return tho
fire, but his pistol failed him.

No Lon-er Use flreen Glass.
It ts known, says tho London Dally
News, that tho use of glass of a.jjrecn
tint ban for hair a century been a char
acteristic peculiarity of the plant
houses nt Kew Oardens. In 1889 the
experiment was made of substituting
white glass for green in the ea wing, ,
ef tho tropical fern house. This was
the result of the observations of the
successful cultivation by Sir TraVor
Lawrence of ferns with full exposure
to light at Burford, near Dorklpgt The ,
Improvement In the growth, of the (
plants was remarkable. In 1892 a por
tion of the west wing was also re- '
gjlazed' in the same manner and the
now temperate fern house was, whqlly
glased with whtto glass. Tho result,
wllh tho glelchenlas ana" other half
1'ardy ferns was everything that could'
'. desired. As the result it hs now
I' ;n determined to abandon the future
uso of green' glass altogether
It Is tho duty of evory Christian to
help those Institutions, and our de
votion to God Impels us to do mis
sionary work, It being . more, e.e'dd
today th-n ever before. We' need a
clear vl- .on' of buman needs to have a
deeper prnpasslotf for the destitute
