LIFE-STORY OF THE FAMOUS CUBAN INSURGENT LEADER. H« Ban lomt Fortune, Health and. S«dde«t of AH, Uta Son In th« C»HM— Bovr H« Treated •' Brigadier Sinjarcake*," a Traitor—A. Marvelous Maa. Maximo Gomez, commander-in-chief ot the army of the Cuban Republic, straight and spare, with piercing blaclc eyes, in the forests thus dealt, surrounded by his staff, with a man who had taken $400 to allow ihe sale of sugar cakes to the Spaniards. He called the officer to him, and, turning to his hearers, said: "You see before you a man wt > has been a brigadier in the service of Cuba. He has sold himself for ?400. He is hereafter t obe known only as Brigadier Sugar- cakes.' If any man in Cuba addresses him as anything else he does so against my express orders." Then, turning to the culprit: "Tear off those stars! Give them to me, quick! You are not fit to command men. You can be bought for a cake of brown sugar. Down to the ranks with you, and try to do your duty as a private soldier and be thankful if my soldiers will walk in tne same ranks with you. It is too much honor for you. See that you behave yourself hereafter." And the man obeyed. Subsequently he redeemed himself by heroic courag« in battle and regained the esteem ol dis general. Gomez is stern and strict, as is nee- essary. He knows not only how to make men love him, but how to make them obey him. He is a picturesqua figure, with his slouch hat and his looge blouse, on the collar of which are two gold stars which tell his rank. MAXIMO fiOMK/.. Gomez is below the average height and not impressive, but he has a strange magnetism about him which draws good men to him and makes brave men die for him. When that little (Jried-up old man appears among a group of officers there is no need to ask who is master. His personality is compelling and attractive. He was passionately attached to his boy, Francisco, who died with Maceo. If it is true that Maximo Gomez is about to visit the United States, this Republic will welcome a man whose career is one of the most romantic and eventful that can be imagined. At 62 years of age bis eye is as bright, his form as erect, his capacity for enduring the hardships of a campaign as great as when he was a young lieutenant, wearing the uniform of Spain. Gomez helongs to an old Spanish family ivho settled in Bani, Santo Domingo. In that town he was born. As a lieutenant he served in the Spanish army during Spain's last occupation of his native country. When, the revolution of 1863, which finally drove the Spaniards out of Santo Domingo, broke out, Gomez decided to no longer fight against his countrymen. He had seen all the cruelty and futility of Spanish l§ gnd doffed the uniform of Spain forever. When the "ten years war" broke out in 1SGS he cast, in his lot with the Cubans. Kis former military experience and his high character gave him at ouce a prominent place in the Cuban army, and when General Agramonte died he became coaamander-in-chief of the insurgent forces. Then, in 1ST8, ame Campos with the specious promise of Spain on his lips and her gold in iis coffers, Some of the Cuban leaders who surrendered did not suffer financially, 3Ut Gomsz refused to receive a cenL His personal fortune was exhausted, sut he would tak« nothing from the Spaniards, nor would he remain in ba under Spanish rule. But in April of 1895 Cuba called to Him again, and he heard the cry. The treaty of Zanjon had not been kept by the Spaniards, in spite of the efforts of Campos to have the promises he had made in the name of the Spanish nation fulfilled. One April night Gomez, Marti and Maceo met at the plantation of ilejor- ana, having secretly landed upon the :uban shores. -Jt has been described as a beautiful moonlight night, so that :he three men, as they sat consulting, -ould look out over a landscape of per- ect. tropical loveliness and peace. Two Sncc«-«alnl Brothers. "Ever hear of John Bil'.ingsboy? reat student at college. Worked lard. Graduated at the head of his class. Finest Latin scholar the institution ever turn«d out. Well, he's srofessor in the college now, and get- Ing along splendidly. Has ?1,SOO a year." 'Never heard ct kim before. What of Mm?" "Nothing, only ke is a brother ol that famous little iorse jockey, Bil- ingsboy, who -weighs 9S pounds and mates $100 a day." REMINISCENCES OF SIGSBEE He Ha« Often Shown, MI» Bravery and Dlfccretion. Commander Sigsbee of the ill-fated cruiser was born in Albany, N. Y., and educated at the Albany Academy. He was appointed to the United States Naval Academy in 1859 by Erastus Corning, first, then congressman from this district. He vas graduated from that institution in 1863 and was immediately detailed into active service as ensign aboard the Metacomet, which engaged in the naval operations that ended in the capture of Mobile, That event was O3e of the most decisive in the civil ^ar. There were also in that engagement two other Albanians, Ira Harris, now of Cleveland, the son of the former United States Senator Ira Harris, and Clarence Rathbone, who stiil resides in this city. Young Sigsbee was then known as "Dutch," a fifing sobriquet, considering the old Dutch town of his birthplace. Sigsbe^'s ship, the Meta- comet, was commanded by Capt. Janett. Commander Sigsbee is well remembered in the chronicles of naval service for his work OB the coast survey. He is one of the bravest and most discreet officers in the navy. He is a man who is known to be what is called "remarkably level headed." and those who know him best will be the last to believe that such carelessness as an explosion aboard ship would indicate could occur on any vessel under his command. A signal instance of his decision of :haracter in emergencies was shown on the East River last summer. The Maine had left the Brooklyn navy yard and was proceeding down stream on her way to sea. The river was crowded with craft of all kinds, and by one of those singular accidents which occur on crowded streams and against which no provision seems to avail, an excursion steamer and a huge freight float got' in the Maine's way. A collision seemed to be inevitable, and what the result would tave been if the huge steel man-of- tvar but brushed the crowded excursion boat can easily be imagined. Capt. Sigsbee did not hesitate a moment. He ordered the helm a-starboard and the Maine went crashing into the dock. Two wharves were carried away by the impact, forty cars were dumped into the East river and x>nsiderable damage was done. But no lives were lest, and except for the losing of a little p?.int, the Maine was uninjured. Then Capt. Sigsbee went Dn his way and subsequently was :omplimented by Mr. Roosevelt, assis- ant secretary of the navy, for the manner in which he had acted. AnumtatioiiH After ft Tarantula Bite. James Hemming-svay, an M., K. and T. brakeman, has just been discharged from the company's hospital at Sedalia, Mo., after four months' treatment for a tarantula bite. On the night of Sept S, Hemmingway touched a. tarantula and was bitten on the tip of the middle finger of the right hand. He felt a sharp pang of pain at the time, but paid little attention to it, and went on with his work. The bitten finger began to slough off. The hand and arm became filled with pus and were swollen to three times their natural size. Hemmingway was seut to the Sedalia Railway Hospital for treatment, where the finger was amputated at the first joint, Finding the wound would not . heal, the surgeon cut the finger again, finally making twenty-nine amputations of tie member. The final operation was performed nearly two months ago, the hand being split from the knuckle of the middle finger to the wrist and the "cones taken out of the knuckle to the wrist. For a long time- Hemmingway's life was despaired of, the poison of the spider bite being so thoroughly infused into his system that it was almost impossible to overcome it, and bis finally recovery is considered almost a miracle.

A young man recently lost the sight of one eye. and consulted a certain Australian doctor, who told him that a. tumor had formed and that the eye would have to be taken out. A few days later he was put under chloroform by the aforesaid surgeon, who took out an eye. It was the wrong one. When the patiant awoke he was stone blind, and t« now has to be led about. Great efforts were made to hush up the matter, but the story of the dreadful mistaJie is getting about Jxpm.ar*f Auction*. Japanese auctions are conducted on a plan which gives rise to none of the noise and confusion which attend such sales in Britain. Each bidder writes his name and bid upon a slip of paper which he plae«i in a box. When the bidding is OTer, the box is opened by the auctioneer, and the goods declared the property of the highest bidder. NOT AFRAID OF GHOSTS. The Widow Taught a X,e»>on to Keri ', ' InR-enioMa Snitor. It was e.ark and the road was uncertain, so when my horse balked at something in the middle of the road I dismounted and proceeded to investigate. At the first glance I took the object to be a woman, but as I untangled the sheet in which the body was wrapped, a week masculine voic« whined: "Don't hit a man when he's down." "Here, get up," said I, shaking him,; thinking it was simply a case o* drunk. He sat up and glanced around nervously. "Has the widder gone?" he whispered. "There was no one here when I arrived," I answered, "What is the trouble?" "Stranger, I wuz playing a joke on the widder. Ye see, 'bout two years ago ole Bill Spinks turned up his toes, leastwise he never came bac^ after leavin' home one day; an year's his widder a refusin' ter git spliced agin 'cause she's afraid thet lie might corns back agin' seem' tbet how thet sae if not sure whether he is dead or not. An' this year widder, stranger, has got fifteen acres an' a bird dawg. So I jes thought thet I would play a joke on the widder, an" make her believe thet Bill wuz dead all right enough, an' then, by gum, she'd be reddy ter get spliced, an' I would be the happy man! "Wul, I put on this yere sheet and waited fer the widder ter corns along. Wul, when she did I stepped out in the road an' commenced groanin'. " 'W-ho-o be-e y-e-e?' " she chattered. " Tm yer ole man/" says I in a hollow voice, "Humph! Ole Bill Spinks?" says she. "I'm the critter," says I. "Then by gum she fell on me like a ton of brick! " 'Come back, hev ye?' she yelled, as she swatted me. 'Can't stay whar they planted ye, wharever that may be." "Stranger, tn jes 1 five seconds I wuz a licked man an' the widder wuz setting on me." " 'You Bill,' said she, 'whar's thet six bits thet I give ye ter buy bacon with?' " 'I ain't got no six bits,' says I. "Don't ye lie ter me, Bill,' says she, 'or I'll swat ye agin! When ye left home ye had six bits thet I had given ye ter buy bacon with. Now ye hand over thet six bits or something is gwine ter happen!' "An 1 by gum, stranger, I had ter give hit to her to save my life. An' then she told me ter get back inter the grave thet I had come frum, an 1 11 she ever caught me tryin' ter hant her agin thet she would tie me toter knots an' feed me ter the hawgs! "But I've found out one thing; 1 know why ole Bill Spinks left an' why he ain't never comin' back agin!" Le«*oiix In Etiquette. How to leave a room—Open a door, place your right foot over the sill, follow it with your left foot, and then close the door. How to accept an invitation for dinner—Eat a light breakfast and no lunch. How to decline an invitation to a reception—Say you're sorry, place letter in envelope, stamp and address, and forget to post it. How to accept an invitation to drink —After a careless air, say you "don't care if I do," and watch the other side of th£ room where the liquor is being poured out. This means quaintity. How to decline the same—-There is no known method of doing this among iuciety people. AVIij- Jilie Backed Out. She had offered her Klondike outfit for sale. "But you seemed to. be so determined to go," they exclaimed. "I was." she admitted, "You said that nothing could turn I you from your purpose." "That's what I thought." "And now you've backed out entirely and positively refuse to stir a step. We c-un't understand it." "Well, you would if you once saw what a fright I am in a Klondike costume." . Then she fixed up her bangs a little, gave herself a sudden twist to make her dress sit just right, and it was evident to even the most unobserving that the world had lost the service of anoth«> r great prospector.

"Well—ai.-to'n>!" placidly began good old Aunt Philenda Broadhead, speaking in the miost of the assemblage ol ladies at 'Mrs. Judge Tub-man's quilting bee; "I must say that I have been real edified by the various theories and plans for the management of husbands •which I have jest had the pleasure ol listenin* to. "I have been a good deal interested In the opinion advanced by th« younger single ladies that a husband- can best be kept in haad by sfcowia' him that you are his superior mentally, and also in that of the younger married ladies, that the clingln' vin< does not need to manage the sturdy oak; likewise, the reluctant confessions or bold assertions, as the case might be, of the ladies who have been longer married, that a husband, must, aceordin' to his disposition, receive either supine obedience or tyranny and the lash, and lastly, by the—ah-h'm'. —elaborately veiled willingness of the more mature maiden ladies to accept almost any state of affairs that has a husband tied to it. "I have been considerably entertained by all these theories, as I said before, but I am free to confess that 1 can't conscientiously indorse them further than to remark that they are a good deal like what the newspapers call glitterin' generalities. Bein' as J have had three as good husbands as a woman was ev«r blessed with, and also a fourth, of whom about the best thing I can say is that he was no great shakes, I kinder think I am mod-erateiy well qualified to speak on the subject of husband management a* one bavin' authority and not as ths. Scribes, so to put it; and, such bein,' the case, I am forced to confess that the only infallible way to manage a husband that I know of is to feed him well and trust to luck."
