A Letter From Harry Steers. Camp Santa Mesa , Manila , P. I. Feh I4tli , 1899. George D. Leach. Frieni George : I will write you a few lines a I have nothing else to do just now. think I wrote in the last letter that I di < not think we would have any troubl with the niggers , but I was badly ini taken , for on Saturday night , Februar 4th , they tried to push back our out-pos aim one of their lieutenants and two sol diers were shot as a result. Of cours that started the ball rolling and in a fev minutes the call to arms sounded am nearly all the Nebniskans were going to ward the out-posts , double time , under heavy fire from Remington and Mause riSes. Companies M , K. L and D tool positions further out than our lines ha < been and lav there for about half ai hour when word came that our cam ] was attacked. Companies M and Iwer ordered hack , leaving K and D to holi the position. Just a short distance from camp is i house where an Englishman named Me Leod lives When we got back there w < stopped to rest and we found two of thi Utah battery's guns planted and read ; for action , but they were compelled t ( remain silent until daylight , Sunday When we had rested we started for ou : position which ws to be south of cam ] in a nearly level field that we used as s drill ground , it is an old rice field am the place where we took our position hac several ridges which afforded us som < protection. We stayed there till abou midnight , Saturday , and the firing hat nearly ceased , then \\e came hack intt camp and with our blankets made oui beds in the company street , as we di < not like to go in our tents because the had the range and every now and thei a brass bullet or a Mauser woul > ! go scur rying through them , not stopping foi trunks or anything else. We had jusl got settled down nicely when they op ened up on us by volleys. The company fell in , each man in his place , hut jusl as close to- the ground as we could get and then we marched out south of canif to our former position I think it was about one o'clock and ue stayed then till just after daylight , Sunday morning all the time under a heavy fire.V were then ordered to fire a volley or twc and advance on the bamboo thicket jusl in front of us where the natives were 5r hiding. We charged on the thicket and I think we must have stood there for ten minutes pouring volley after volley intc them. They finally went bark out ol range and we returned to our friendlv rice ridges because we did not have men enough to press them We stayed in this same position till 2 o'clock , Sundav afternoon , without a bite to eat and some of us did not liave a drink. In the charge we lost one man killed Guy Livingston , a Plattsmouth boy. Pet haps you knew him He was sent back from San Fram-isco to help recruit our regiment and he came on the ship Arizona with the recruits. He was heard to say that he knew he would not see the states again. He was well liked by the entire company. We had four men wounded but they are all doing nicely. Just after daj-liglit on Sunday morning the Utah's guns began to talk , and a very good piece of work the } * did , too. I don't think thej- missed a shot. All the time the fight lasted around camp , which I think was about sixteen or eigh teen hours , an American lady stayed in the gun pit with the Utahs. The boys said she wouldn't get under cover at all. I think she must have been a newspaper correspondent. There must have been a dozen reporters with us during the fight. About 2 o'clock , Sunday afternoou.my zoinpany came into camp. We did not liave anything to eat but salmon and liardtack , which we do not relish very liighly. About 3 o'clock we went to Blockhouse No. 7 with about fifty men. IVe stayed there till Monday morning ivhen my company came into camp , and , ve have done cauip duty ever since. For four days and nights I did not ; et a wink of sleep. Most of the Ne- jraska boys are out to the Stanolan vater works , situated about four miles rom our old cauip. Our firing line is wenty-seven miles long. What do you hink of that ? The last hospital report I got there vere 59 Americans killed , 245 wounded. t is reported that the native loss is be- ween 800 and 1,000. Of course we can't jet a true report yet. We are looking or more troops now. We don't expect o get away for quite awhile. There is some firing up the Pasig iver I think it is the Washington > oys , for they are up that way. I haven't leard anything of Steve Belles since the ighting began , but the company that te is in has not had a man wounded : ven. Hert Colter is all right , as are all he rest of the McCook boys. Kinghorn aid to tell you "Hello. " Our men have about 30,000 natives urrounded in a little town called Mala- lon. They are going to attack them oon. Our troops have burned nearly : very native house that they came to. Ve have fresh meat whenever we want t. Once in a while our boys bring in a 'oung Calabou or Water Buffalo which nnkes pretty good eating. There is a small gun boat stationed in he Pasig river near cauip. It was cap- uretl from the Spaniards and cost the Jnited States 48,000 Mexican dollars to epair it. I don't think we will have much more ighting in the vicinity of our old camp. guess I will close for this time , hoping o hear from you soon. Your friend , lARRY C. STEERS , Co. M , Neb. Vols.

Only Scrofula , some of them no doubt being able afford temporary relief , but S. S. S. is absolutely Remedy Equal to this the only remedy which completely cures it. Scrofula is one of the most obstinate , deep-seated blood diseases , and is beyond the reach of the Obstinate [ many so-called purifiers and tonics because some thing more than a mere tonic is required. S. S. S. is equal to any blood trouble , and never fails to cure Scrofula , because it goes down to the seat of the disease , thus permanently eliminating every trace of the taint. , The serious consequences to which Scrofula surely leads should impress upon those afflicted with it the vital im portance of wasting no time upon treatment which can not possibly effect a cure. In many cases where the wrong treatment has been relied upon , complicated glandular swellings have resulted , for which the doctors insist that a dangerous surgical operation is necessary. Mr. Jl.E.Thompsonof Milledgeville , Ga. , writes : "A bad case of Scrofula broke out on the glands of my neck , which had to be lanced and caused me much suffering. I was treated for a long while , but the physicians vrere un able to cure me , and my condition was as bad as when I began their treatment. Many blood remedies were used , but without effect. Some one recommended S. S. S. , and I began to improve as soon as I had taken n , few bottles. Continuing the remedy , I was soon cured permanently , and have never had a sign of the disease to return. " Swift's Specific S. S. S. FOR THE BLOOD is the only remedy which can promptly reach and cure obstinate , deep-seate blood diseases.
