Editor National Tribune : I wns one of five who went through a dangerou ; scene at Mobile Bny , recalled to mint by Hobson's exploit. After taking Fort Morgan , in Mobile Bay , we inarched up to Spanish Fort and commenced a siege. The rebs brought supplies to the fort with steamer. The next night our boys got a battery on the right ; so next day the boat came down with a hospital boat in tow. Our boj'S let , loose on her , and they cut the hatiser and skedaddled back to Mobile. The hospital boat floated down opposite the fort , and lodged on a sandbar a short ways from the fort. Both armies could look down on her. Our men wanted to know what wns on her. Col. McNulta , 94th 111. , came around among the boys and wanted to know who could row a boat. Several spoke up and said they could , thinking that the Colonel wanted someone to go out to the fleet ; but some of them backed out -when he said that he wanted them to go and see what was on that boat that lodged close to the fort. One Lieutenant of the igth Iowa and four of us boys said we would go. We had to go out to the fleet to get in the channel. Our gunboats lay off about one mile. They could not get nearer , for torpedoes ; they had sunk two of our boats. We started straight for the fort , and saw some torpedoes as we went up. The Lieutenant said we would get some of them when we came back , but when we came back we did not have time to stop for torpedoes. We went on for the fort. The rebels did not fire until we turned our boat , and then they let us have it. Balls fell thick as hail all around , but it did not take long to get around the opposite end of the bp-U , and we were out of sight of them. he Lieutenant and I and one of the other bo3's clambered up on the boat and walked to the other end , keep ing on the west aisle , for their were three rows of bunks and three high. We started back , got about-halfway , when a shot from one of the guns at the water-battery came in at one end and went out at the other. It knocked bunks and everything else around us The Lieutenant said he would not give $2.50 for our lives. The other soldiers said , "Let us stay here until it gets night. " The Lieutenant said that would not do , for they would shoot her all to pieces. "We should try to get away. So we got down in our boat. We knew we would catch it when we would come from our shelter , and we did catch a shower of bullets. They kept up their fire as long as they could reach us with ininie-balls , and the water-battery com menced to follow us with big shells. But we escaped without a scratch. If any of the boys are still alive who were with me , and see this , I wish they would write. T. J. Pate , Co. C , 94th 111. , Mc- Cook. _ The Old Rheumatism Dodge. A woman and a young girl were around over the city , first of the week , begging aid for a rheumatic husband and father , who was said to be confined to the wagon in which they were traveling eastward. They were successful in hoodwinking a number of citizens who had not time to look into the matter and secured some money and provision. One who did look up the case reports that they were in no need of assistance and the robust and healthy men , two of them , with the wagon seemed to be suffering with any thing else than rheumatism. As a rule people seeking assistance JL should be sent to city marshal who will look into the merits of the case and act accordingly. This indiscriminate giving of assistance is wrong and wasteful and should be stopped. Tell the policeman. Furnished Rooms to Rent. f - Furnished rooms to rent.

Riverview has been attractively laid out aud will be enclosed-in due time. There is no reasoir why it shall not be come a desirable burial place. Pass Them On. The Indian doctor fakirs who tried to do business on the hill west of the city and outside of the corporation limits , last week , left for greener fields , Sunday. They were unable or unwilling to pay the high license exacted by the'city or dinance and attempted to run their fake show on the outside of the limits , run ning free conveyances to and from the grounds , but soon tiring of the game they departed for other fields. This is a disreputable and dead-beat outfit and should be passed along the line by every newspaperman in the val ley. Thoroughbred fakirs' they should not be allowed to work their skin games in any community at any price. Pass them along. Shore-Leave at Tampa. Of the twenty-five thousand men on the ships half were allowed ashoie at a time. As there were barely twelve thou sand five hundred square feet of shore for them to stand on , they were about as miserable as on the ships. Shore at Port Tampa means a pier , a wharf a hun dred feet wide and a mile long. To get a whiff of fresh air the twelve thousand five hundred men sat on the rail along the wharf.

The spread was a poem of substantial excellence , served with dainty and at tractive napery , silver and glass The only tragic element was projected into the function when the "lords of creation" were turned loose on the provisions. It wasn't high tragedy , either. The ladies are to be congratulated on the fact that their study of the "Bard of Avon" has iu no wise interferred with their skill in the culinary art or in the finer art of enjoyable entertainment. Borrowed a Horse. The Indian horse doctor who attempt ed to work this community last week , borrowed a horse from the owner of the outfit , the day before they decided to leave this section , and he forgot to bring it back , so the owner says. The owner hails from Cambridge , we understand. He and his wife drove back to Cam bridge , after having loaded the tent and stuff on a freight car , to raise the money with which to pay the freight charges down to Cambridge. The owner had better put the outfit to better use. He seemed to be a pretty square sort of a fellow. 'But he was lu bad coufpany , that is sure. A Delightful Lawn Party. A most delightful lawn party was given , Wednesday night , by Misses Ma bel Perry , Lulu Beardslee and Nellie Guun , on the lawn at the residence of W. S. Perry.

Russell passed away , about two o'clock , Monday afternoon , after a short illuess with a disease which the doctors do not agree on as to the name. The little one was about six months old.
