The Spanish authorities are posting bulletins and the loyalists in viiiiii are celebrating the ending of the revolution. Without Crombet and Maceo there ean be no real war Saturday the Cuban army and the Spanish soldiers met at Palmarito .The rebel forces numbered 2,000 men, while that of the Spaniards was 3,000. A desperate battle followed, and, according- to official reports, lasted two hours, at the end of which time the rebels retreated. They were pursued by the Spanish troops and Maceo was captured. Llis secretary ws>.s also taken and all the personal and private papers of Gen. Maceo were confiscated. The battle was hard, foug-ht and tho insurgents fought desperately against odds. The .Spanish soldiers resisted with remarkable courage the onslaught of th« rebels. In the buttle, n hu75d-to-hiind conlliet, a number of Cuban officers, one of whom was a colonel, were killed. Maeeo was a leader of the rebel, forces with Gomez durinj,' the former revolution. Thoug-h but a.youth lie achieved considerable distinction. Alncoo'H Full'. Macuo's fate is known in advance. It would have been far better for him if he had been killed,- as was Crombet, than to be brought hereto Havana and put in old Morrociistlu's gloomy prison. He will be kept there for some time, and then possibly ho will be ffiven a mock trial, it is certain he will be garroted.

EZGCLATOB Co n .Atlanta, 0«» < Altnoit * Military Organization, the Member* Uarlnur Dallj Drill*. The Berlin fire department is the oldest professional organization of the kind on the continent, and, without a doubt, also the most efficient. It is organized on military lines, and the firemen., as well as their ollicers. have their regular daily drills. The progress with in the last few years has been enormous, says the Philadelphia Record, and many novel appliances and machines, electric apparatus and other improvements have been introduced. The "scaphander" is a suit of asbestos and rubber, with a helmet of rubber fitting hermetically upon the snit. A plate of glass, specially prepared to stand great heat/ without cracking, is imbedded in the front of the helmet and. allows the wearer to sec plainly. "With this suit a fireman can dash into a fierce fire in spite of smoke, heat and flame. Air is supplied to the fireman as in a diver's helmet. Several men of each station are supplied with smoke helmets, which pro, tect against being overcome by smoke, nnd enable firemen to search all rooms in a burning house for people that are blinded or overcome. They also receive their supply of air from without. In the way of life-saving apparatus no fire department is so complete as that of Berlin. In spteial carts they carry not only tools, ropes, appliances for climbing, chemical extinguishers, rubber cloths for jumping into, etc., but all thing's necessary for the first surgical help. Among other contents of the tool cart there is n "life-saving sack" which, for simplicity, efficiency, and lightning speed of operation, outranks all other temporary or stable fire escapes. A fireman ascending an upper story from the outside by means of short ladders reaching to the window sill of the next floor above finds a fainted form on the floor. The next minute he has unhooked the strong hempen sack lie had slung across bis body and over his shoulder. A rope is thrown down by him after being- run through one of the rungs of the ladder, and within one minute after he entered the room through the window the human form is gliding through space and into the arms of a brawny fireman receiving the frightened sufferer. Four persons- have been saved with two .sacks on one line inside of three minutes. All signals are given with cornets, each company using a different pitch. The firemen get so used to the signals of their company that they can instantly recognize a signal not given by their own bugler. BARBARIAN DANCING. One of th» Kalinc P«»lom of the Primitive Race*. Among the arts that have most powerfully served to advance the social evolution of primitive peoples is that of the dance. Dr. Grosse, a German authority in ethnography, has recently pointed out how important dancing is in attracting rude folk, accustomed to gain their living principally by hunting, to social gatherings which result in cooperation for other p-urposes. Dancing among- such people, says the Youth's Companion, is a far more significant thing than it is among- civilized races. The fondness for dancing may be looked upon as a most important agent in the early development of mankind. But what is the natural charm of the dance which has given it such a conspicuous place in social evolution? According to Dr. Grosse, the charm consists simply in "the pleasure of strong and rhythmical movements, the pleasure of imitation, and the pleasure of giving vent to the feelings." These are identical with the attractions of art, and so the dance is ranked among the important arts of primitive" man. The passion for dancing- is one of the strongest that_he feels. In civilized life the dance retains its charm, but it is, as different in its influence and in its effect -upon the dancers as it is in form. As civilized people practice it, of course, dancing no longer serves the original needs, j which, in fact, have then practically disappeared. j TO yzof> a KDiJ:*way Xlat. "I was much impressed," says Air. Goslington to a Sew York Sun man, "by something that I saw in the street this morning, the manner in which a man stopped bis hat, which was blowing away. It is well known that ucider such circumstances a hat often develops great eccentricity of movement; when yon stoop down to put your band on it as you run it is not there. • But this 'man rpja past and just to leeward of his bat and stopped it a» It rolled toward him." IN HAT LININGS. Love Notes Thus Sent Forth by Reading Factory'Girls- BT This Mc»n* Husband! H»re Been Secured—Funny Flutu* of the Correspondence Which Sometime! Follow*. As in all other manufacturing' towns, tlie factory girls of Reading ha - ve * ots of fun inserting little notes in packages or articles thev manufacture nnd send out to all parts of the world.. The best f u n of this kind, writes a Beading (Pa.) correspondent of the New York Sun, is enjoyed by the girls who work in factories turning out articles used exclusively by men. Hence hat factory girls receive possibly the largest mail. "I have known at least a dozen girls •who have become the wives of men who found their little notes in the hats they bought," said the forewoman of a hat factory. "Several girls have their sisters at work at home making copies of the following note: " 'I hope you will be well pleased with tliis hat. I have tried to line and trim it satisfactorily. If you have a few minutes' time to spare and care to do it please write and tell me how you like your hat. Of course, you must be a single man, as I am a single girl. Lovers are scarce in this town. 1 "The girls slip the notes under the lining- of the hats, allowing just an end to stick out uuder the sweat band. A note so placed would not be seen unless the sweat band were turned down. Of course hundreds of hats are sent out, and possibly the notes are never seen, but very many are found and answered. The g-ii'ls receive answers from all over the United States, principally the west. The letters they receive would make quite a collection. Generally they aro read out aloud in the shop. Very many replies from the west say^that girls" are very scarce out there. Some men want to correspond with Ji view to matrimony; others just for pastime. One man recently wrote that he wanted a hat trimmed by the same girl. "A few days ago a letter was received from southwestern Colorado for a girl who died here eight months ago. She had put in her trimmed hats a lot of notes. The writer had nearly worn out his hat before he discovered tho note. Ho offered to send the girl money to come out to him if she'd marry him. Poor Mary, she had died of pneumonia. Tho picture of the man in the letter looked as if he would make any girl a good husband. Mary's sister" had opened the letter. She answered it. They are now corresponding. "If a girl exchanges a few letters with an unknown correspondent, and the man's answers suit, she generally sends a letter to the town's chief of police or mayor and asks confidentially all about the character of her correspondent. In nearly every instance, the officials sen'd courteous replies and tell the girl all she wants to know. Photographs are exchanged and little gifts are received, generally curiosities from far-away states. One of our girls receives letters from a man up at Puget Sound, and from another in southern California, and from another in Havana, and from another now in Yucatan. The girls have gone into the stamp collection business, and our factory album is quite a curiosity in its way. Of course the girls can't answer all tho letters they receive. The cowboys write very odd letters. One ranchman said he owns one thousand acres and five thousand head of cattle, and wants a wife. The letters generally have full descriptions of the men. They all ask for photographs of the girls. Some of the girls send pictures of actresses, as handsome as they ean get them, but very often tha girls depend upon their own faces, because many of them are reaDy pretty and winning. "One factory (firl made a practice of sending photographs of a deceased maiden aunt, with side curls and fancy headdress, telling her correspondent she has a kind heart and is very respectable. One correspondent returned the picture, saying he was not making a collection of freaks. "Some girls who have been married a few years receive .answers to their notes. "I know two young Indiana men who came east for brides and secured them. In all other instances the girls went west or south and became happy wives, so far as' I know. Last year two girls who made vests for a wholesale house, and slipped notes into the bottoms of tho watch pockets, secured husbands. Another girl of my acquaintance, who works in a. stocking factory, slipped a. note into the toe of a No. 11 sock, and about sixteen months later heard from the buyer, who was an iron ore miner up in Michigan. They are still corresponding, I think. Girls who pack note paper occasionally write "their name and address with lead pencil on one of the sheets. Sometimes they get replies if the note paper falls into the hands of romantic young men. But frequently married men answer these notes."
