me vemu urn MOINES: ALGONA IOWA, WEDNESDAY JUNE is, I BATTERIES AT SAN TIAGO QUIETED, Sampson's Fleet Does Effective Work, KINGSTON, Jamaica, June 8.—The American fleet on Monday engaged the Spanish batteries detcnding the entrance to the harbor of Santiago de Cuba, and after a three hours' bombardment silcnar.'l nearly all the forts, destroyed several earthworks, and rendered the Estrella and Cayo batteries, the two principal fortifications, •useless. The fleet formed in double column six miles off Morro Castle, at G o'clock in the morning, and steamed slowly 3,000 yards off shore, the Brooklyn leading, followed by the Marblehead, Texas and Massachusetts, and turned westward. The second line the New York leading, with the New Orleans, Yankee, Iowa and Oregon following, turned eastward. The Vixen and Suwanee were far cut on the left flank, watching the riflemen on shore. The Dolphin and Porter did similar duty on the right flank. The line headed by the New York attacked the new earthworks near Morro Castle. The Brooklyn column took \ip a station opposite the Estrella and Catalina batteries and the new earthworks along the sliore. The Spanish batteries remained silent. Jt is doubtful if the Spaniards were able to determine the character of the movement, owing to the dense fog and heavy rain, which were the weather features of the early morning. Suddenly the Iowa fired a 12-inch shell, whichstruak the base of the Estrella battery and tore up the works. Instantly the firing from both Rear Admiral Sampson's and Commodore Schlej r 's columns began, and a torrent of shells from the ships fell upon the Spanish works. The Spaniards replied promptly, but their artillery work was of a very poor quality and most of their shots went wide. Smoke settled around the ships, in dense clouds, rendering accurate .aiming- difficult. There was no maneuvering of the fleet, the ships remaining at iheir original stations and firing steadily. The squadrons were so close in shore •that it was dillicult for the American gunners to reach the batteries on the hill tops, but then-firing was excellent.; Previous to the bombardment orders were issued to prevent firing on Morro Castle, as the American admiral had been informed that Lieutenant Hobson and the Ojher prisoners of the Merrimac are 'onfined there. In spite of this, however, several stra;/ shots damaged Morro Castle somewhat. Commodore Schley's line moved closer in shore, firing at shorter range. The Brooklyn and Texas catised wild havoc among the Spanish shore batteries, quickly silencing them. While the larger ships were engaging the heavy batteries, the Suwanee and Vixen closed with the small inshore battery opposite them, raining rapid shots upon it and quickly placing the battery out of the light. The Brooklyn closed to 800 yards, and then the destruction caused by her guns and those of the Marblehead and Texas was really awful. In a few minutes the woodwork ot Estrella fort was burning and the battery was silenced, firing no more during the engagement. Eastward, the New York and New Orleans silenced the Cayo battery in quick order, and then shelled the earthworks, located higher np. Shortly after 9 the firing ceased, the warships turning in order to permit the use of the port batteries. The tiring then became a long, reverberating crash of thunder, and the shells raked the Spanish batteries with terrible effect. Fire broke out in Catalina fort and silenced the Spanish guns. The firing of the fleet continued until 10 o'clock, when the Spanish fire ceased entirely and Admiral Sampson hoisted the '-cease firing" signal. Generally, the fire of the fleet was very destructive. Many of the earthworks were knocked to pieces, and the Estrellu and Catalina fortifications were so damaged that it is questionable whether they will ever be able to renew any effective work during the war. After the fleet retired the Spanish returned to some of their guns and sent twelve shells after the fleet, but no one was injured. One large shell fell close to the collier itustin. Throughout the entire engagement no American ship was hit and no American was injured. If the Spaniards Stuck to their guns, and all evidence is to the contrary, their loss must have been heavy. 0 MADRID, June 8.—Cervera cables that six American vessels (bombarded Santiago and tho coast fortifications. Six were killed and seventeen wounded on board the Keina Mercedes. Three officers were killed and one officer and seventeen men were wounded among the troops. The damage inflicted on the batteries at La Sacopa and Morro were unimportant. The Morro barracks were damaged, The enemy had "noticeable losses." WASHINGTON, June 8.—The navy department has received a dispatch from Admiral Sampson announcing that between 7:30 and 10 o'clock Monday morning lie bombarded the Santiago fortifications and entirely silenced them. The. war bugle that sounded the charge that sent the Light Brigade to destruction at Italaklava was lately gold at auction in London for $3,035.

Kingston, Jamaica, June 13. — In Santiago de Cuba there are now about 20,000 Spanish soldiers, chiefly infantry, but with a fair contingent of cavalry and field artillery, drawn from the surrounding country. During the daytime the cavalrymen skirmish in the vicinity of the city, returning at night to the barracks. During the last few days the activity of the Spaniards has been particularly noticeable. Ox trains have been mak- ng their way to the batteries, detachments have been working on displacements, and there have been other signs showing that the Spaniards are prepar- ng for a desperate resistance. Some tuns from Admiral Cervera's ships may be removed to the forts. The Insurgents, about 3,000 strong, have taken a position on a mountain to ho westward. Two thousand of this gathering are unarmed. Gen. Maximo Gomez, now about 150 miles inland, Is making his way toward the coast. Admiral Sampson is actively co-operating vlth the insurgents.

(From the Frco Press, t>etrolt. Mich.) A prominent business inan recently expressed the opinion that there is one tiling that -will prevent -women from completely Oiling mon's place in the business, world— they can't be depended upon because they are sick too often. This is refuted by Mrs. C. W. Mansfield, a business -woman of 53 Farrar St., Detroit, Mich., who says: "A complication of female ailments kept me awake nights and wore me out. I could get no relief from medicine and hope was slipping away from me. A young lady in my employ gave mo a box of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pole People. I took them and -was able to rest at night for the first time in months. I bought moro nnd took them and they cured me as they also cured several other people to my knowledge. I think that if you should ask any of the druggists of Detroit who are tlie best buyers of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills they would sny the voung women. These pills certainly build up the nervous system and rnauy a young woman owes her life to them. "As a business woman I ain pleased to recommend them as they did more for methnn any physician, and I can give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills forfnle People cred it for my g e n e r a 1 good health to-day." No discovery of mod- Suddenly PrnstraM. ern times lias done so much to enable women to take their proper places in life by safe-guarding their health as Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pole People. Acting directly >n the blood and nerves, invigorating tho jody, regulating the f uuctionn, tbey restore tbe strength arid health to the exhausted wornnn when every effort of the physician >roves unavailing. For tbe growing girl tbey are of tho greatest benefit, for the mother iudlspousa- ilo, for every woman invaluable.

"Yes. he suid he'd write: arid I made him promise to give his letters to some other man to mail." Among the many expenses borne by- railroad companies the ice bill figures quite prominently. For instance, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad it is expected it will take over 50,000 tons of ice this year to meet the reauire- ments of the service. The greater portion is used in connection with shipment of perishable goods; the balance in the passenger train service. A great deal of this Ice is put up by the company in its own ico houses, but as the past winter has been so warm a very large proportion will have to be purchased.

We were sitting on the veranda of our bungalow one evening In far-off Burmah, R. A. and. I, enjoying our after-dinner cheroot. The waters of the bay lapped lazily at the sands at our, feet, for our house was "builded on the sands" of the shore. All the world seemed at peace, only the plunkii plunk! of the monotonous night bird! in the jungle, and the occasional weird- note of the jackal, signaling In tho distance to his comrades, were heard.] The moon had come up from behind ai rocky island just over in the bay, and; spread a flood of golden-yellow light) over the silver-topped breakers, rolling In over a neighboring coral reef. It was so calm and beautiful that ft seemed that all that was wicked and bad had gone out of the world, and yet death lurked just at my friend's elbow, as he puffed unconsciously at his cheroot. We had been discussing in a leisurely manner something that had happened at home. To prove some point my friend arose, and stretched hlmsell lazily, sauntered into his bedroom to get .a paper bearing on the matter wa had been discussing. Usually lights were placed in all the bedrooms, but this evening, for some unaccountable reason—probably the moonlight—tha servant had not performed his dutiea I could hear my friend fumbling about on his dressing-table, and then suddenly gave a quick cry of horror and rushed out to the light. "I have been struck by a snake," ha gasped, and his face was deadly pale. "Where is it? Quick! Show me!" I exclaimed, as I whipped out a knife, He held out his right arm. Thera was no mark on the hand, which I examined critically, but on the cuff ol the shirt were two tiny scratch-like punctures, and two little globules oj poison sinking into the starched linen, and leaving a sickly, greenish yellow mark. "You've had a close cell, old man,"i I exclaimed, with a great sigh of relief, 1 "and I think you need a peg to bracej up your nerves, but first let us settle; the snake." We found him coiled up on a small. mirror which lay on the table, and an ugly looking customer he was, too,! ready to strike again. ; He was a very poisonous snake; known as the Deboae Russelli, but after my friend had finished with him; it would have been difficult for any} naturalist to have placed him in hi; proper genus.
