There were two Yankee Commodores
As different as could be.
For, one, he wore a parted beard.
The other a soatee.
And one. his name waa 'William;
The other, his waa Scott;
And Willie, be had friends at court.
While Scotty be bad not.
Now Scotty was of higher rank
And had both push and brain.
So when the latest war broke out
The Jackies pitied Spain.
They never .dreamed of William
Their hero's name was 8cot.t;
But Willie he had friends at court.
And Scotty he had not.
Then William's friends together put
Their heads into a heap.
And raised their little Willie
At one tremendous leap.
So Willie acted Admiral.
A minor part played Scott
For Willie he bad friends at court,
And Scotty be had not.
And when at last the battle raged
Amid the shot and shell
Twaa Scotty led the gallant fleet
Into that blazing hell!
But William took the honors.
And not the modest 8cott
For Willie he had friends at court,
And Scotty-ne bad not.
But in the people's mighty heart
The nation's truest test,
Cs name of all made great that day
Stands high above the rest
The name of him who fought the fight.

For 8cotty here has friends at court
And Willie he has not.

The enlisted man has learned some
part of his lessons In soldiering, while
the staff knows more than it did eight
and ten months ago, when Indiscrim
inate anathemas, just and unjust, war
ranted and unwarranted, were called
down upon the unlucky heads of those
who composed it But there Is an
other class, and a larger one, in the
same school, which has also learned
Its lessons. It is composed of what
Is known as "the general public" It
had to learn that an army of a mil
lion men, or the half of that, or the
quarter, or the tenth, could not be
made into soldiers by the wave of a
magician's wand, assuming the head
of the war department to be a ma
gician. The public had to learn that the
donning of a uniform did not make a
soldier. It had to learn that it even
took time to get the uniform for the
soldier to don. It bad to learn
that politics had no place in armies
and army movements. It had to learn
that an army must have proper food
and medicines or its members would
sicken and many would die. In fact,
the public had very much more to
learn than had the army or the staff.
Its lessons were simple enough, and
they have been illustrated in pictures
and demonstrated in figures. They
have been put into the forms of syl
logisms and analyzed by experts. What
part of those lessons has it learned?
Qulen sane? Has it yet learned to ap
preciate its regular army as do those
who have seen it In camp, on cam
paign, and on the battlefield? Probably
not. Will the reorganization bill not
only reorganize and increase the army,
but as well make the rapid and ef
fective equipment of a large reserve
army of well-trained men anything of
a possibility? It will probably re
quire a congress or two to answer
that question. Havana Correspondent

The Spanish word machete, which is
pronounced by the Cubans "mah-chet-ay,"
with the ch as In the English
word "chin," and the accent on the
second of the three syllables, is de
rived from the verb machar, to pound
up or break Into small pieces. It is
related to the word "masticate," and
It is of Interest to know that in the
hands of the Cuban natives the instru
ment is used rather as a cbewer-up
of things than as a sword.
It is about two feet long, although
sometimes it is shorter than that It
has a handle of horn, and no guard.
The blade broadens toward the point,
but toward the tip bends back, slight
ly like a Turkish scimitar, and comes
to a sharp point. It is generally thick
and heavy, and a hard blow may be
struck with It
Most of the machetes in the hands
f Cuban Insurgents are made In the
United States, where they can be
bougnt ror three dollars and a half,
although the ordinary price for a new
one In Cuba is five dollars.
Machetes seldom seem to be made of
a high grade of steel, and they wear
rapidly under the use which the in
surgents give them. It is very com
mon to see them worn to a thin and
narrow blade, and notched up sadly.
Lieutenant Maceo, a half-naked and
coal-black negro, who said hewas a
cousin of Antonio Maceo, offered to
sell me at Baiquiri, for five dollars,
the machete which he had carried
from Pinar del Rio, at one end of
Cuba, to Santiago, at the other end,
and had borne in many engagements.
Among the expert uses to which the
Cuban puts his machete there is none
more picturesque than the opening or
peeling of a cocoanut He takes the
green cocoanut in his left hand and
begins to strike blows at it with the
machete, held in the other hand. These
blows are not made to split the nut
open, but to make a spot so thin
near one end of it that the r point of
the blade will presently open a nice
round hole, out of which the water of
the cocoanut can be drunk. When this
is gone, a blow or two breaks the nut
Into pieces, and with the point the
nutritious pulp of the nut is dug ouL
The most interesting use of the ma
chete that I saw was the cutting of

The plans for the three big battle
ships authorized by the naval appro
priation bill just passed are being
worked out The battleships will be a
thousand tons larger than the Maine
and Missouri class, of a total displace
ment of 13,500 tons, making, them by
far the largest ships in the American
navy and about equal in dimensions
to the best type of battleships now be
ing constructed abroad under the new
practice. Though larger than the
Maine, the ships will be laid on al
most the same lines, being only a lit
tle greater In every dimension. They
will carry each four 12-Inch guns in
turrets. This caliber Is an inch less
than the guns carried by the Oregon,
but by improved design they will be
almost equal In penetrative power.
Instead of 8-inch guns the new ships
Will have sixteen rapid-fire guns of 6
lnch caliber and twenty six-pounders.
This battery represents the ideal pro
portion between guns, as taught by
the experience of .our own fleets dur
ing the Spanish war and of the Chi
nese and Japanese vessels during their
late war. The speed of the ships will
be 18 knots, an advance of two knots
over the Oregon class, but just equal
to that of the new Maine. For pro
tection the battleships will have one
belt of armor seven and one half feet
broad and 12 inches thick running
clear around the water line, three and
one-half feet above and four feet be
low. It will be Impossible to. begin
work on the ships this summer, as
armor cannot be procured for $300 a
ton, the price fixed by congress.
The six cruisers of the unarmored
type provided for can, however, be
built, and it is the purpose of the navy
department to place contracts for
these ships at the earliest possible mo
ment They represent a type of cruis
er which would be of the greatest
value just now for foreign service.
The plans call for vessels of about
2,600 tons, and the ships will be im
proved Marbleheads, so to speak, be
ing 600 tons larger than ships of that
class, and with better batteries and
more coal capacity. They will be
sheathed with wood over the steel hull
and fully coppered, enabling them to
keep the seas, even in tropical waters,
for many months without being un
der the necessity of seeking a dry
dock. The battery will be made up
of six 5-inch guns for each ship.
Statistics of tha Cabaa War.
Prof. Arthur Codezo Vinageras of
the Havana Academy of Sciences has
compiled the vital statistics of the late
war of Cuba with Spain. He does not
claim it is absolutely accurate, but
that it is approximately so. He esti
mates the mean population of the
islands in the years 1895-1898 as 1,546,
000, of which 532,000 were colored. Of
this number 40 per cent of whites and
72 per cent of negroes were illiterate.
The percentage of male to female was
54 to 46. He estimates the number of
the Spanish army sent to Cuba during
this period as 234.000, and the num
ber of Cubans fitted to take arms as
362,000. Of this number he finds that
71,000 actually rose in arms,while 262,
000 remained irresolute. The remain
der, almost 30,000, went into exile.
The number of armed Cubans killed
during the war was 10,300 whites and
6,600 negroes; of unarmed fighting
men, 11,400 whites and 12,000 negroes.
Weyler's order of reconcentration was
responsible, he estimates, for the death
by starvation and disease of 387,000
persons men, women and children. Of
this number 202,000 were whites. The
total loss of Cuban life by the revolu
tion was 418.300. The Cubans in arms
at the end of the revolution he esti
mates at 28,600. The total loss of the
Spaniards was 22,000 in battle and
106,000 by disease.
The Colonel Was Game.
A good story is told the Constitution
of the colonel of the Third Kentucky,
which has just arrived in Cardenas. At
Matanzas the colonel, who is a Ken
tuckian by the name of Smith, or
dered cars to remove his men to Car
denas. The cars were ordered for
6:30 p. m.' At 9:30 the cars had not
shown up. The colonel was "mad."
He stalked into the railroad superin
tendent's office and wanted to know
why the cars were not ready. The su
perintendent was writing and paid no
attention to the colonel. The colonel
repeated bis question. The superin
tendent still did not answer. The
colonel fairly roared and asked the
superintendent if he had not heard the
questions. The superintendent an
swered "Yes." "Then." yelled the
colonel, "why in the blankety blazes
didn't you answer?" "Because," said
the superintendent, pompously, "I am
a railroad superintendent, and I am
accustomed to having men remove
their hats in my office." "I don't give
a hang what you are," retorted the
colonel, "I am a sovereign in my
country and do you get out of that
chair pretty quick and attend to those
cars, or I'll telegraph Gen. Brooke
about you." The Spanish railroad su
perintendent "got." Atlanta Constitu
Never Ware Pajamas.
A story is told by the Army and
Navy Journal of one of our volunteer
warriors who had his home in a small
town near the Mississippi river, and
who had been chosen to command the
local company because of his political
influence. The ladies of his town had
organized a Red Cross Auxiliary soci
ety, and among their contributions to
their comfort of their absent heroes
was a case of home-made pajamas.
The box containing these was sent to
camp, but no acknowledgment of its
receipt was returned. So the good
ladies telegraphed: "Anxious to know
if you got the pajamas last week."
Now the captain had been sitting up
with the boys the night before, snd
when the dispatch was handed him he
was trying to reduce his swollen bead
with a wet towel and his mind was
somewhat confused. So the'ladies of
the relief society were astonished by
the receipt of this dispatchc "Story
