It does not build a house, but instead, with Its fellows, builds Up a sort of tree with waving branches from which the insects hang like flowers, swaying back and forth in their gay colors of green and yellow. The most magnificent palaces built by man for dwelling places sink Into insignificance when compared with some of the houses constructed by insects. An interesting example is the brickmaker, who lays bricks with the skill of a mason, making a house of tiny bricks or pellets laid regularly aud so evenly there are no chinks bo- tween them. It makes its own brlcka and lays them up with no help. These brick houses are usually fasten'ed to the leaf of some water plant. , An insect called the floscule lives in a glass house which is often 'found broken by naturalists— whether, from the stones of some enemy or not is un- . known. The floscule has a long foot. • stalk which it fastens to a water plant* and remains moore.d the rest of its Ufa.' •' It is very sensitive, an* at the slighl- • est alarm retreats into its glass dwell-'-: ing.

There Is much uneasiness timong the Cubans lest General Shatter should leave Santiago in charge of the present municipal authorities. In thar event they declare they would be marked men.—The general conditions In El Cdnov are more unsatisfactory than ever. Thousands of refugees are on the verge of starving. The fever there has been checked, however, and the guards now penult only medical attendants to enter or l?ave town. Mall is necessarily delayed at Siboney while the letters can bo ilisinfer-t^U. Nearly 300 cases of fever aro now oelug treated in the American hospital hero. The fever Is constantly developing at (he front, and many sufferers now In the detention hospitals will be sent here In a few days. The fever has not yet assumed Its most virulent form, and the rtoc- lors are making strenuous efforts 10 keep It In check. There have been twelve deaths thus far at Slboney, a majority of the victims being regulars.—Genaral Shafter today detailed the now famous Twenty-fourth regulars, composed of colored troops, to keep the refugees at Siboney, ihe base of supplies.—Major Legarde, surgeon in charge, reports that the outbreak of fover In nur lines Is due to contact with ihe refugees from Santiago Secretary of War Alger was highly elated when he received official news that the American army had control of Santiago. "It Is a magnificent achievement," said he, "and most all of it Is a tribute to the bravery, pluck and endurance of our American soldiers. Now that their efforts have brought final and complete success, I believe their campaign will be recorded as one of the most glorious pages of our military history. Not more than 10,000 men were engaged when the most serious fighting occurred, but -"hey Pushed^forward and created a condition which has-brought the surrender of 25000 men." General Shafter's message to the war department is as follows: Santiago de Cuba, July 17.-AdJutant United States Army, .Washington: I have the honor to Ight of scarch.-The second expedition to Manila had not arrived July 15.-The first ' . tho harb °r at Santiago was HerWd and' Chicago Times-' dispatch boat Golden Rod.-LIeu- lenant Hobson destroyed the submarine i «m« ntranc6 to Sant lago harbor.
