While tho stubborn warfaro of these
unyielding forces has proceeded with
fluctuating results that in the long run
have practically balanced each other,
a third army of human beings has been
slowly ground to distinction. Of
their woes wo mut think, and, having
thought, we must act Though tho
Spaniards have been i-liielly confined
within the limits set up by themselves;
prisoners, in fact, within their own
fortifications, yet they have retained a
fear-compelling power over tho feihlo
minds of tho children and tho timorous
natives of both sexes who were afraid
to light and did not dare to lieu. Those
pacilicos quietly obeyed the govern
ment when orders went forth in .o tho
country regions to gather within town
limits and stay there. Tho expected
freedom to livo in peace under tho
Spanislt army changed at onco to death
dealing bondage. Unable to cultivato
land to any great extent, horded to.

flios in autumn; and in dying have suf
fered woes that tiro uncqualod oven by
tho bloody sufferings of tho Armenians
or tho plague-ridden starvation of the
Hindoos. The language of a moderate

Rod Cross heroine; and tho storios pic.

than justify these comparisons. In one
hospital alono a place where care and
tender oversight are expected four
hundred of the paciticos have died of
starvation. Tho burdens of tho insur
gents, who, in rebelling did so in full
expectation of tho fortunes and misfor
tunes of war, have been as naught bo
sido tho woes of those unhappy non
combatants. Where Spain has slain
its liu ailreils by tiro and by sword, it
has slain its hundreds of thousands by
hunger and by neglect. This has tak
en place and is still doing so within
ninety miles of tho land that declares
in favor of "life, liberty and tho pur
suit of happiness."

Tho war measure of Spain against

prominontly in tho annals of the bru
talities of whicli our raco is capable.
This is not war with its glamour of ox

murder without the shedding of blood.
Whc n man sees a weak one perse

tho rule for a nation. Murder of wom

begin to appreciate it. Thoir broken

making themselves alowly uudor&tood
