lost by fire a half block of fine buildings
in the heart of the business portion of
the town. The loss is estimated at

seriously hurt.

The attack of the Filipinos had an effect
different from what was calculated by
them. The nation has, time and again,

Instructions will be sent to Major

attended by the president. Secretary

Adjutant General Corbin. It was
further considered, now that Aguinaldo
has thrown down the gauntlet, that Uo

archipelago be occupied as rapidly as
the forces of General Otis will permit.

light undershirt on, a pair of brown
pants, no socks, and I am melting like a
steer in the cornfields. We are camped
in an old rice field with insurgent sol
diers on all sides. There are some 50,
000 of them close to us.
They say we would all die if we would
undertake to go home now, it is so hot

Jevellaxes, Cuba, Jan. 25, W.
Dear Mother: Your welcome letter
of 12th inst. duly received. Since the
evacuation of the Spanish forces, which
was the 10th ult, I have been stationed
at this office as government operator.
Jevellanes is a town of 5,000 population,
45 miles south of Matanzas on the
Havana railway, also a junction point on
the Cardenas and Cenfuegas railway and
one of the most important railroad cen
ters of Cuba. The surrounding country
is very fertile and productive; their prin
cipal crop is sugar cane, which grows to
about three times the size it does in the
states. They plant every third or fourth
year, this being necessary to improve the
quality of the cane and to keep the land
under proper cultivation; although the
land has been tilled for two centuries or
more I am told they never fertilize.
There are a number of sugar factories
near town, but very few are in shape to
do business, as their machinery and most
important buildings have been destroyed.
The planters have no means to repair the
damage done until they can interest for
eign capital, which will only be a ques
tion of a short time. Until this relief is
secured, the poor people will have hard
lines or very little employment. There
are a good many pitiable sights of desti
tution I am told by Capt Bean of the
8th Massachusetts, who is making a tour
of inspection and distribution of govern
ment rations to the Reconcentrados of
this province. This work has been pros
ecuted with vigor and all possible haste
on the part of army officials, distribution
for this month having just been com
pleted. I understand they will furnish
the necessary rations every month until
the conditions of the poor people are
improved, or until their next crop, which
will be six or eight months. Until
recently, they have been subsisting on
cane juice and tropical fruits. Mr. Mat
tern, a planter near town who is an
American citizen, and has lived in Cuba
fifteen years, says there would be bo
natives on the island by now had not the
United States interfered or declared war
at the time they did. The country peo
ple were driven out and made to stay
inside the cities or towns, not allowed to
go outside without getting a pass from
the commanding officer under penalty of
death, and on account of Spanish sol
diers being so filthy, and they having no
system of sewerage, the death rate from
sickness and starvation were making
rapid inroads on the population. He
estimates the Cuban forces at about
10,000 at the time war was declared, but
since that time they have recruited up
to probably 30,000. This, he explains, to
make an appearance of force. I under
stand the government have agreed to
advance 3,000,000 dollars to pay off the
Cuban army, they keeping control of
custom houses. This island has 44,000
square miles and I am told there is only
about one-third under cultivation. There
are good opportunities for real estate
investments and I think it would be a
profitable investment. The climate is
healthy, when the sanitary rules are
observed, and I believe just aa healthy
as the southern states.

At 8:40 Saturday evening last three
daring Filipinos darted past the Nebras
ka regiment's pickets at Santa Mesa, but
retired when challenged. They repeated
the experiment without drawing the sen
tries. But the third time Corporal
Greely challenged the Filipinos and then
fired, killing one of them and wounding
Almost immediately afterward the
Filipinos' line from Calvocan to Santa
Mesa commenced a fusillade which was
The Nebraska, Montana and North
Dakota outposts replied vigorously and
held their ground until reinforcements
The Filipinos in the meantime concen
trated at three points, Calvocan, Gagal
angin and Santa Mesa.
At about 1 o'clock tho Filipinos opened
a hot fire from all three places simul
taneously. This was supplemented by
the fire of two seige guns at Balik Balik
and by advancing their skirmishers from
Paco and Pandacan.
The Americans responded with a ter
rific fire, but owing to the darkness they
were unable to determine its effect.
The Utah light artillery finally suc
ceeded in silencing the native battery.
The Third artillery also did good work
on the extreme left.
The engagement lasted over an hour.
The United States cruiser Charleston
and the gunboat Concord, stationed off
Malabona, opened fire from their second
ary batteries on the Filipinos' position at
Calvocan and kept it up vigorously.
At 2:45 there was another fusillade
along the entiro line and the United
States sea-going double-turreted moni
tor Monadnock opened fire on the enemy
off Malate.
With daylight the Americans advanc
ed. The California and Washington
regiments made a splendid charge and
drove the Filipinos from the villages of
Paco and Santa Mesa.
The Nebraska regiment also disting
uished itself, capturing several prisoners
and one howitzer and a very strong po
sition on the reservoir, which is connect
ed with the water works.
The Kansas and Dakota regiments
compelled the enemy's right flank to re
tire to Calvocan.
There was intermittent firing at vari
ous points all day long. The losses of
the Filipinos cannot be estimated at
present, but they are known to be con
siderable. The American losses are estimated at
twenty men killed and 125 wounded.
The Ygorates, armed with bows and
arrows, made a very determined stand
in the face of a hot artillery fire and
left many dead on the field.
The list of Nebraska boys killed, are:
C. O. Bollinger, Co. L, Omaha; H. 8.
Hall, Co. A, York; C. R Keckley, Co. A,
York; O. T. Curtis, Co. C, Beatrice;
Davis Lagger, Co. I; Louis L. Begler.
Co. F, E. Eggen, Co. unknown. James
The list of wounded had not been re
ceived at Washington. The first Ne
braska was right at the front of the
fighting line. As in the former battle of
Manila, it was one of the Nebraska boys
(this time Corporal Greeley), who fired
the first shot when the natives attempt
ed to pass the outposts.
In the charge which drove the enemy
from its position the Nebraska boys cap
tured several prisoners, one howitzer
and a very strong position on the reser
voir connected with the water works.
Besides his soldiers, some 13,000 or
14,000 men, General Otis has at his back
in Manila bay, commending the city,
Dewey's fleet, some twenty-one ships of
various types, including those about to
join him.
It Caused the Despair of a Sleepy
Leetsrer la Semrcb of Rest.
"I have long made it a practice to
sleep whenever I get an opportunity,"
said a man who lectures, "but a recent
experience in Baltimore has made me
shy of opportunities. You sec, I spend a
great deal of timo on railroad trains,
and frequently, in order to keepeugage
meuts, I am forced to travel at night
Now, I have great difficulty iu getting
asleep on a sleeping car, and sometimes
I toss around all night.
"Last week I lectured in Baltimore,
and after the lecture I found a sleeping
car in the railroad yard which was to
be added to the train bound for New
York. That was my opportunity. I
bought a sect ion, hunted up the porter
and asked him if I might retire with
the expectation of not bung aroused be
fore morning.
'"That's what the car is here for,
colonel, ' he answered. 'Wo don't pull
out till 1 :80 in the morning, and you
can just go right to sleep.'
"That sounded inviting, and 1 retir
ed. I fell asleep promptly. The move
ment of the car aroused me, and, think
ing that we had been coupled on to the
New York train, I closed my eyes again.
At that moment the car ran into some
thing on the track with a crash and
stopped so suddenly that my head was
bumped against the end of the berth.
Undoubtedly a smash up, I thought, and
I proceeded to get out of my berth. The
porter was siting in the seat opposite.
" 'For heaven's sake, what is the
trouble?' I asked.
"'Nothin.' be replied; 'just switch
in.' "Back I crawled, feeling very cheap.
Again I felt drowsy, and once more the
car was bumped violently, then shoved
along the tracks at a rapid rate and
shunted into the end of another train,
starting a series of crashes that sounded
one after another clear away up the
track. The quiet that followed lasted so
long that I began to doze. Another
bump harder than the previous ones
aroused me, and for the next five min
utes it seemed as if two engines must be
engaged in shunting my car back and
forth for the fun of it I would feel the
car slide along only to come to an abrupt
stop with a lot of noise. Then it would
slide back to another 'track and stand
stilL For the next hour I was tossed
and bruised in my berth, and I could
stand it no longer. I crawled oat and
dressed aa best I could under the cir
cumstances, made a flying jump from
the car on one of its shunting trips past
cue station and went to a hotel and
spent the night The memory of that
experience has made me cautious about
entering sleeping cars that are loafing
around the yard waiting to be coupled
to a train, even if it does seem to offer
an opportunity to make ap sleep. The
amount of ahaWing np that one man re
ceives in a car that is 'just switcbin' is
surprising." New York Sua.

The following is a true wolf story
written from data furnished by Dr. '
Thornton of Lewisburg, Pa., whose fa-'
ther figures as the hero : J
"About the year 1845 wolves were
abundant in Tomhickon valley, between
Catawissa and Huzleton. When the '
vaiawiiua miiiuau, a mui ut iud run-
adelpbia and Reading, was being built,
Dr. Thomas A. H. Thornton, a practic
ing physician, ono cold autumn night
was called out of bed to visit a patient
about 20 miles from his home. At that
time there were no regular, roads as we
now have. In their place the traveler
used narrow paths or trails. Dr. Thorn
ton in his anxiety to reach the bedside
of the sufferer attempted to make a
short cut He Ics; his way and for a
week wandered through the wilderness
and, having no gun, was obliged to
subsist on roots and herbs. The doctor
was on horseback and after wandering
aimlessly about the pathless forests for
four or five days got into a large swamp,
where the horse stepped into a quag
mire, from which his owner was unable
to extricate him, and the animal had
to be abandoned, imbedded as he was
almost to his belly iu the soft and boggy
bed. The doctor removed the saddle
bags containing his supply of medicine,
eta, threw them over his shoulders and
started off.
"Several hours after the doctor got
out of the swamp where he had aban
doned his horse he was horrified to see
that he was being followed by a band
SaAAMiJnnn n I 1 1 (1 awiafr a avEa T1L2I I
of five or six wolves. At first they kept
at a respectful distance when stones
were thrown at them, but finally, as if
they appreciated the helpless condition
of their intended victim, and as dark
ness camo on, tho hungry, bloodthirsty
band became bolder and bolder. They
circled around the terrified and jaded
man and, closing in, started to attack
him on all sides. One more vicious and
impulsivo than the others made a spring
at the doctor's throat, but a well direct
ed blow from a club temporarily dis
abled the animal and caused his raven
ous companions to discontinue at that
timo their premeditated and combined
"The doctor, by this thrilling episode
and the frightened coudition of the
wolT"., succeeded in going perhaps a
mile unmolested when, to his great
horror, he found the whole pack, led by
the vicious brute ho believed he had
maimed with his club, hot on his trail.
The stunning blow administered to the
leader of the howling baud seemed to
have only intensified the brute's cour
age and thirst for blood. The man,
weakened by long exposure and loss of
food, r .lized that ho would soon be torn
to pieces if be did not adopt some new
means of defense.
"Fortunately, aa the animals began
closing around him for another on
slaught, ho reached a high rock and
mounted on its top, where a giant tree
served to protect him from falling back
ward. Ho reached this eminence in time
to provide himself with some stones and
two or three good clubs before his pur
suers started to attack him. He stood
back to the tree, and as the animals at
tempted to come up he drove them back
with bis primitive weapons. A large
stone hurled With great force and ac
curacy broke, the head of one of the as
sailants, said this gave the doctor a
breathing spell.
"The man, however, realized that he
must soon quit his refuge, and, remem
bering that ho had in his saddlebags a
large bottle full of ammonia, ho deter
mined to employ it as a final resort to
save his life. Ho quickly removed one
of his green baize leggings, tied it se
curely to a stick, and after saturating
the legging with ammonia he boldly
started down the rocky promontory to
ward the wolves. The cunning animals,
apparently aware that he could be more
easily overpowered on level ground,
separated, slunk off and permitted him
to proceed several hundred yards before
they renewed the pursuit They did not,
however, allow much time to elapse be
fore tbey took tho trail of the man who
had thus far so successfully baffled their
"Tho doctor stood still and waited
until one of the brutes rushed within
an arm's length, when be struck him
in the face with the cloth saturated
with ammonia. This reception was a
most novel and unique one for the wolf,
who ran off howling with pain. Two
more of the band were slapped across
the mouths with the saturated baize,
and tbey also left. After this experience
(he wolves followed the doctor till day
light next morning, when tbey gave up
the chase, which they had continued for
48 hours and which unquestionably
would have resulted in a most horrible
death if it had not been for the contents
of the ammonia bottle.
"Dr. Thornton succeeded in finding a
shanty occupied by the men construct
ing tho Catawissa railroad, where he
was carefully eared for, and in the
course of four or five days was taken to
his home, where he was ill for fully, a
