Gen. Wheeler's Methods.
When the American line had fought
its way to the top of the hills at Kl
Paso and San Juan and Caney, General
Wheeler issued an order that every
command should dig trenches in prep
aration for the conflict that he knew
would break out again in the morn
ing. But the soldiers had thrown away
most of their trenching tool during
the fierce rifle charges, and 33 darkness
fell upon the scene of battle they threw
themselves upon the ground and went
to sleep from sheer exhaustion. Adju
tant Hood of the Rough Riders, noting
this condition of affairs-, rode over to
Gen. Wheeler's tent and Informed the
good old veteran that the men were
played out. Wheeler at the time was
lying upon his cot more dead than
alive, but there was a smile upon his
lips, and his never-failing good humor
twinkling in his eyes, when Adjutant
"General, I am afraid our men can't
dig the trenches."
"What -men?" asked the general.
"The cavalry division," said the ad
jutant. Gen. Wheeler sat up in bed and be
gan pulling on his boots.
"Send me tne man," he directed.
"What man?" asked the adjutant
"The man who can't dig the trench
"But it is not one mad; it is many
men. They are Just played out."
"But you can surely find one man
who says he can't dig the trench. 1
only want one. Go get him and bring
him to me.'"
"But there are"
"I don't care how many there are,
go get me one."
The adjutant had never faced such
a man as Wheeler before, and he did
not know Just what to make of the cdn
versation. The little old general was
as smooth and ruave and courteous as
could be, and Hcod had nothing to do
but ride back to the line; In sbme
way he managed to round up a colored
trooper belonging to the Ninth caval
ry, and brought him back to the divi
sion headquarters. He stood looking
sheepishly at the ground, when Wheel
er addressed him. - "
"Are you the man who says he can't
dig these trenches?" asked the gen
eral. The negro's feet shuffled Uneasily on

With the most businesslike air In the
world Wheeler slid intn his mat and
turned toward the big cavalryman. The
latter's eyes opened as he saw the pro
ceeding, and they began to bulge out
when the general motioned him to lead
the way to his camp. For a minute
his voice stuck in his throat, and then
"Boss, you ain't fit to dig no trench

just naturally do it myself. I'm' dog
tired, but that ain't no work for you."
Wheeler stopped and looked at the

The plague of locusts in the west
and northwest has become so serious
that the most strenuous efforts are to
be made to devise some means by
which they may be destroyed. One
experiment is identical with that em
ployed for destroying chinch bugs. A
number of insects are inoculated with
a fungous disease and turned loose
among the locusts in various localities.
The result is that the disease spreads
rapidly and sweeps off entire colonies
of the insects. This means of ridding
the country of a pest is a great discov
ery, but it entails possibilities that
are by no means agreeable t intern
plate. The sparrow was impo?d to
destroy caterpillars, and now it has be
come necessary in some localities to
take the most thorough measures to
get rid of the sparrows. As far as the
locusts are concerned nothing could
be worse than their devastation, and
we may well take the chances of clear

rollers had been breaking them down
