Usually lack of necessary nourishment. The reason why Dr. Dyer's Hair Vigor restores gray or faded hair to its normal colour, stops hair from falling, and makes it grow, is because it supplies the nourishment the hair needs. "When a girl at school, in Reading, Ohio, I had a severe attack of .brain fever. On my recovery, I found myself perfectly bald and, for a long time, I feared I should be permanently so. Friends urged me to use Dr. Ayer*s Hair Vigor, and, on doing' so, my hair immediately began to grow, and I now have as heavy and fine a head of hair as one could •wish for, being changed, however, from blonde to dark brown."—Mrs. J.

PLA.YA I>FX ESTE, July 10.—Adjutant General of the United States Army, Washington.—Headquarters. Near Santiago, July 16.—The conditions of cnpitulation include nil forces and war material in described territory. The United States agrees, with ns little delay as possible, to transport nil Spanish troops in the district to the kingdom of Spain, the troops, as farns possible, to embark near the garrison they now occupy. Officers are to retain their side-arms and the men arc to retain their personal property. The Spanish commander is authorized to take military archives belong-ing to surrendered district. All Spanish forces, known as volunteers, Moiril- izndrcs nnd guerrillas, who wish to remain in Cuba may do so under parole during the present war, giving up their arms. Spanish forces march out ol Santiago with honors of war, depositing their arms nt a point mutually agreed upon to await disposition o'l United States government, it being understood the United States commissioners will recommend that the Span' ish soldiers return to Spain with the arms they so bravely defended. This leaves the question of the return of the arms entirely in the hands of the government. 1 invite attention to the fact that several thousand surrendered, said by General Toral to be about 12.000, against whom a shot has not been fired. The return to Spain of the troops in this district amounts to about 24,000, according' to General Toral. W. R.

SANTIAGO DK CUHA, July 17.—Noon.— Amid impressive ceremonies tho Spanish troops laid down their arms between the lines of the Spanish and American forces nt 9 o'clock this mornin/j. General Shafter nnd the American division and brigade commanders and their staffs were escorted by a troop of cavalry and General Toral and his staff by 100 picked men. Trumpeters on both sides saluted with flourishes. General Shafter returned to General Toral the lattcr's sword after it had been handed to the American commander. Our troops, lined up at the trenches, were eye-witnesses of the ceremony. General bhafter and his escoi-t, accompanied by General Toral, rode through the city, taking- formal possession. The city had been sacked before they arrived by the Spaniards. At the palace elaborate ceremonies took place. Exactly at noon the American Hag- was raised over the palace and was saluted by twenty-one guns by Captain Capron's battery. At the same time all the regimental bands in our lines played "The Star Spangled Banner," after which President AIc- Kinley's congratulatory telegram was read to each regiment. The Thirteenth and Ninth regiments of infantry will remain in the city to enforce order and exercise municipal authority. The Spanish forcus are to encamp outsiae of our lines. After the ceremony of raising- the flag-General Shafter and his staff returned to the American linos, leaving the city in the possession of the municipal authorities, subject to tho control of General McKibben, who has been appointed temporary military governor. Admiral Sampson's last bombardment of the city wrecked fifty* seven houses, causing- heavy damage. SANTIAGO JH<: CUKA, .July 17.—Since 4 o'clock this morning- a stream of refugees has been pouring-into the city, Some naked, and all hungry, exhausted and footsore. Many had fallen by the wayside. The town of Santiago presents u dismal appearance. Several of the houses have been sacked and the stores have all been looted and nothing to eat can be had for love or money. In the streets this morning-, at the entrenchments, at the breastworks and at every hundred ieetor so of the barb wire, fences, were the living skeletons of Spanish soldiers. Gen. Panda was never here, but 3,500 men from Man- /.anillo arrived on July 3, making- the total garrison here 7,000, The contact mines in the harbor were removed today. Admiral Cervera left but two chains'of electric mines, one from -ES' trella point and the other fromSocapa are still down. Four Spanish merchant steamers are in the harbor.
