Funston. Fred A. Faoston. c.t lola, Kan , a nepbew of William Funston, residing two miles north of Logan^port on the Pleasant Grove pike, ha* returned from Cuba, having served elgVeen months In the Cuban artillery, under Generals (jomez aod Garcia. He fs said to oe a born adventurer and fighter. Concerning this remarkable young inan a correspondent to the Delphi Journal says: "In the Cuban war he was shot through the lungs with a steel bullet which bad first passed through tbe heart Of the gunner standing hsslds him. His arm was Droken by a bursting shell and his leg was pierced with another ball; his horse fell on him and broke his leg and Injured bis hip After all this be set out to return to America to try and save his life, and One night as he was crossing a railroad he was halted and captured by the Spaniards. He told them be was just coming io to surrender and under toe proclamation then In force, he was released, after three weeks in prison. He showed me three commissions granted for gallant service. They bore the names of Generals Garcia and Gomez and are written on common heavy paper torn from a large volume. There Is no fancy lettering or colored Ink or anything of that kind. They are written In a plain band and are brief and to the point. Mr. Funston Is a colonel of artillery, the highest rank attained by any American who has fought In the Cuban war. "Ool. Funston went over In 1898 in a filibustering expedition and landed safely. He Is a little man of thirty- one years, Is quiet and unassuming and does little talking except as the conversation grows. He told me of his trials. He said it was nothing unusual for them to go two days without food; that they slept on tbe wet ground In the storm without any shelter but the trees: that when be was wounded he was carried sixty miles on a stretcher to the mountains where noble Cuban women nursed him back to life. He was standing by the aide of Osgood, the Unvelrsity of Pennsylvania foot ball player, who was killed In a desperate action. He carried him out of the fire and immediately succeeded to his command. He said the insurgents lived chiefly frum gaidens and small farms cultivated in the eastern provinces by the sympathizing Cubans. They had sweet potatoes, squashes and bananas when not fighting, and they had to take chances. He said the Cuban surgeons were skilled and attentive and the nurses were furnished from the ranks of the very beat people. He knows Gomez and Garcia personally. I was surprised when he told me their ages. Gomez Is a man of 74 years and Garcia is 65 Both fought in the war of the seventies. In that war Garcia was captured by the Span- lards and made a desperate attempt at suicide. He shot himself In the center of the forehead and the bullet penetrated his brain, but he lived, He was taken to Spain and sentenced to life Imprisonment. He served seventeen long years In confinement, but made his escape when the present war broke out and joined the ranks. He said that Gome/ was a meditative, exclusive man, who sat apart and ' moved about In solitude. That he Is a man of gloomy, tacltuin mind." ^ A lot of Evansvllle girls were at the station when tbe regulars passed through, some days ago, and pinned Mags on the boys, the names of the donors being written on thefljgs. The result is a numberof correspondences and the standing of the Evansvllle postoffice may be advanced. AODITIOS4L ITEMS. America's Greatest Medicine.
