t»»PMR PMMOIM38! ALGOKA IOWA. WBDNESDAY, APRIL 5, 1899. 'DICK RODNEY; Oi% The Adventures of An Eton Boy,,. CHAPTER V.— (Continued.) "In a moment his blue shirt was off ftfiC Ifticed on the lift of the foreyard. 11iis meant, Mr. Rodney, that as merchant seamen we appealed to the man- o'-war for protection, and wanted an armed boat's crew. Thank heaven, such an apppeal is never made in vain by a poor .lack of any country to a British man-o'-war, but the lubberly Spaniards never noticed the signal, or if so, never heeded it." "The Yankee skipper uttered a fierce laugh. " "Douse that shirt and come down, you sir,' he thundered out; 'down instantly, or I will shoot you like n coon." "But, desperate with fear, the poor fellow now stood upon the yard, and while one hand grasped the topping lift, with the other he waved his shirt to the Spaniards. 1 heard the crack of a pistol, and next moment he fell a quivering mass upon the deck, stone dead, shot by the revolver "That will teach you to make signals from my ship, you varmint, sni- velled the merciless skipper, giving the ' con- . _ - i-/.'~«>t»i»iii body a kick, 'and as for you,' he ,„„tinned, addressing me, and ramming home his words with an oath; but before he could get further I leveled him on the deck by a blow from a handspike, and tossed his knife and revolver overboard. "His right arm was broken. There was a great row about all this before the Alcalde when- we got into harbor; our bell was unshipped and our canvas unbent by a party of Spanish marines; but the captain crossed the Alcalde s hand with silver or gold, and there was an end of it. There was an end of my engagement, too; for the Yankee weathered me about my salary' seized my chest, my quadrant,'even an old silver watch which my mother gave me to make me comfortable, when I first went to sea, and then turned me out of the ship. "So with nothing except a Mexican dollar in my pocket, but followed by my Newfoundland dog Hector I found myself on a wet and dusty evening on the great quay of Matanzas, which faces the bay that opens into the Gulf of Florida. ''Low alike in spirits and funds, I had to endure being jostled by negro porters, scowled a t by alguazils, ordered about by red-cappped and black- bearded Spanish sentries, who were shirtless, and tattered, and whose brown uniforms and red worsted epaulettes tainted the very sea breeze with ..m,. garlic and coarse tobacco. The sun had set behind clouds as red as biood. The bay was all of a deep brown tint, and the shores were black or purple. I was very sa d at heart, and thought it hard that I, a British seaman, should be there an outcast and all my kit reduced to the clothes on my back, in the very place where the same flag that Pococke and Albemarle hoisted on Havana, and brought all the Don Spaniards on their knees in old King George's time. "However, that would neither find me supper or a bed. I lost or missed my Newfoundland dog Hector, and in the bitterness of my heart I banned the poor animal for ingratitude in leaving me. Just as I was looking about for a humble posada, where a moiety of my dollar might procure me a bed a man stumbled against me. " 'Look alive, cucumber shanks,' said he, angrily, in English. " 'Do you take me for asked, fiercely. "'You are grimy enough for any- rtirtfv'cint'lVm. *...-]_«. * . J that two of her crew who remained on board ' " 'Were dead; yes, true enough. They were found in their berths, one on the starboard, and the other on the port side of the cabin. But what, of that? I buried them off the point of Santa Crux, and there they sleep sound enough, believe me, each with a couple of cold shot at his heels. Here is the key of the companion hatch, and take my revolver with you, for plcaros arc pretty common hereabouts.' "'Thanks, Hislop,' said I; 'but how am I to get on board?' " 'Scull over to her in the punt that is moored beside the quay. When on board make yourself quite at home, for the agent and I left plenty of grog, beef, biscuits and'tobacco in the cabin. On the morrow I'll overhaul you, in the forenoon watch. Till then, good-by;' and before I could say anything more old Jack was gone, and I found myself nlone on the stone moio, with the key of the polacca'a companion in my hand. "Them seemed nothing for me but to accept the temporary home thus offered; so. iu the hope that it might load to something better, 1 stepped into the light punt, cast loose the painter, and after a few minutes' vigorous sculling found myself on the lonely dock of the silent polacca. "Her canvass was unbent; most of the running rigging had also been taken off her and stowed away—so her tall and taper spars stood nakedly up from the straight flush deck, with a sharp rake aft. "Thick banks of dark-blue clouds were coming heavily up from the Gulf I of Florida. The air was hot and sul- phurous; some drops of rain, warm and broad as doubloons, began to splash upon the deck and to make circles on the sea; while at the far edge of the horizon a narrow streak of bright moonlight, against which the waves were seen chasing each other, glittered through the flying scud, the bottom of which was uplifted in the oflliig, like a dark curtain that was battered and rent. "Then a flash of red lightning, tipping the waves with fire, shone, but to be replaced by instant darkness, and all "Still the Idea of the two dead men, with their pale faces and unclosed eyes, would come before me again and again, and I could have groaned but for dread of some similar response that might make my heart Wither up and my flesh creep. And creep it soon did; for, Just as this horrid idea of an overstrained fancy, fostered by imagination and fashioned out of the silence and darkness, became strongest within me, what were my emotions—how painful the throbbing of my her,rt—on beholding a strange, green, ghastly light glimmering about, and playing within each of the side berths. "While shrinking into a corner of the cabin, with eyeballs straining, I gazed at them alternately with a species of horrid fascination. The two lights were weird, wavering and pale; they seemed to me as two warnings from the land of spirits, for they played upon the curtain and in the recess of each berth, port and starboard in which a dead man had been found. And while these lights shone, there came upon my ear the palpable sound of a heavy breathing and snorting, as from the oppressed chest of some one, close by me. "I placed my hands upon iny eyes and on my ears to shut out these horrid lights and sounds; but when I looked again the former had diseap- peared, and all was opaque darkness. "On putting forth my hand to rise, a cry of uncontrollable terror escaped me—a yell that rang In wild echoes through the silent polacca—when my fingers came in contact with something icy, and then a cold, clammy, and wet head of hair! "Then two glistening eyes seemed to peer and to glare into mine! "In horror and bewilderment, and followed by something, I knew not what, I sprang up the companion, and, half fainting, reached the deck of the polacca. Then 1 turned to find that the object which had excited so much dismay was no other than my poor dog Hector, which had swam off to the brig in pursuit of me. "The eyes that in the dark seemed to glare into mine, were his; the icy object, from which my fingers shrank, was his honest black nose; and what head of hair, was his Remnant of Aguinaldo's Army treats to the Mountain:, AMERICAN LOSS VERY SMALL C«l.

I thing,' said he; and after being a night in the Alcalde's lockup house, I certainly was not the cleanest of men; but now it seemed as if the voice of the stranger was familiar to me. I examined his features. " 'What,' I exclaimed, 'Hislop—Jack Hislop. is this you? 1 'Tis I, Jack Hislop, certainly,' replied the other, who proved to be my old friend, Marc's father; 'but who the deuce are you?' '"Your old shipmate, Sam Weston, who sallied with you for many a day in the Good Intent of Port Glasgow' "For a moment his tongue seemed absent without leave." " 'What, you Sam Weston—English Sam, as we called you—adrift here at Matanzas among these Spanish land- crabs?' " 'Aye, adrift sure enough,' said I, as we shook hands heartily, and then adjourned to a taberna, when 1 told him all about my quarrel with the Yankee and my present hopeless condition, over a glass of nor'-nor'-west. " 'I have a bi'Jg here on the gridiron, repairing, for we lost some of her copper Jn scraping a rock near the Tortugas shoal. All my crew are of course ashore, and at present I am residing with a friend,' said Hislop; 'but I can find permanent quarters for you till you get a berth. Do you see that craft out there in the bay?' " The polacca brig, about a mile off?' " 'Yes, Well, she is consigned to my owner, but was found adrift, abandoned >by all her crew except two, about fifty wiles off, half way between this and tile Salt Key Bank. I have charge of her now, and there you may sleep every night It you choose. What say you to that?' '"That I thank you, old shipmate, With all my hea,rt, but—but ' "'What?' "'I have heard of that polacca, and became black chaos to seaward, save where a pale-green beacon burned steadily at Santa Cruz, on the western side of tlie bay. "These signs prognosticated a rough night, but I was glad to perceive that the polacca was well moored at stem and stern; so I unlocked the companion door and descended, not without a shudder, into the dark and cold cabin, where the dead men had been found, and where all was silence and gloom. "I struck a lucifer match; my teeth chattered; and while groping about for a candle, to make myself comfortable for the night, I began to wish I had remained on shore. "I found a ship-lantern with the fag- end of a candle in it. and this, when lighted, enabled me to take a survey of the cabin; which stood on the table and when looking about, found my eyes wander so incessantly to the side berths in which the dead Spaniards had been found, that at last I almost fancied their pale sharp profiles and rigid figures were visible in the flickering light of the caudS*. " 'Come,' s?.'d I, 'Sam Weston—this will never do! A fa you a man, or have you bec<x?H» A child again?' "Another application—a long one, too—to the rum jar, and I wrapped some bunting, a rug, and a pea-jacket that lay on the locker, round me, and lay down on the cabin floor to sleep; and scarcely had I stretched myself there when the candle flared up, and, after casting some strange kaleidoscopic figures on the beams overhead, through the perforated lantern-top— went out! "I was in total darkness now, but more awake than ever. "I felt as if In a great floating coffin, but heard no sound except the gurgle of the sea under the counter, or the splash of the stern warp, as it whipped the water occasionally. "I kept my eyes closed resolutely, and determined, perforce, to sleep, and not to wake till morning; but still I could not help thinking of the two poor fellows who had died in the berths of that cold, dark, and silent cabin, and had been tossed to and fro so long upon the sea before they received Christian burial. "Which had died first—the man in the larboard, or he in the starboard berth? Why were they thus abandoned? What had they said to each other? What messages had they sent to wife, to father, or mother? What tale of love to repeat—of guilt to reveal—messages given by the dead to the dead, and never delivered! These thoughts crowded upon me till I almost imagined the dead men lay there still, and that they might rise up and give their last messages to me. Then I heard a sound in the foreholcl. It made my blood curdle! Was it caused by rats? Perhaps they had fed on the dead Spaniards and now were come to take a nibble at me. Rats were bad enough, but ghosts were own curly front; while the lights—the mysterious lambent lights—that had flicekered about the dead men's berths, proved to be nothing more than the green beacon on the promontory of Santa Cruz, which shone at times through the two stern windows of the polacca. "Being moored with the chain cable ahead and a manilla warp from her port quarter to a buoy astern, she swung to and fro a little with the ebb and flow of the tide; hence the Malolos, April 3.—As this dispatch was sent the walls and roof of the burning insurgent palace are crumbling and falling, making ruins of the chamber where a few days ago the Filipino congress was iu session. • The whole insurgent army and government are fugitives. Our bronzed battalions are sweeping through the streets of Malolos, which are a swirling vortex of flame and smoke, while Aguinaldo's palace burns like a sacrifice. • Hundreds of terrified Chinamen run shrieking among the fallen walls, praying for mercy, tossing their bands in the air, kneeling in supplication, some throwing themselves into the river, others looting. Through the flames and .smoke our cheering troops move, meeting little resistance. The insurgent army may continue to fight, but the prestige of tlio leaders is gone forever. Our prisoners say that the Philippine' republic is chaos. • The insurgents .surrendered field works in which a thousand determined men could defy an army. As we approached Malolos Thursday Hale's and H. G. Otis' brigades were stretched bfi- tween the sea nnd the mountains. The scene was indescribable for beauty and grandeur. The splendid line with its waving colors looked like a rainbow. Troona lirouk Tutn Chenrn. When the Hag of truce appeared our troops broke into cheers and song. But intrenched. At 6 o'clock in the evening the Kansas and Pennsylvania regiments crossed and were promptly reinforced by MacArthur's whole division, which crossed the bridge under a galling fire. At the sight of the magnificent gallantry displayed by our soldiers the insurgents rose out of their trenches, attempting to charge us, but our volleys put them to rout with heavy loss.

The country is filled with rivers and ravines, and intervening ridges being covered with woods and brush, rendering them almost impassable in places. The Fourth cavalry swam several rivers. It was at Guigulnto that Wheaton joined MacArthur. Native newspaper and officers' orders which were found proclaim great loss to the Americans, reporting Otis, Halo and Egbert killed nnd many other officers mortally wounded. One of our prisoners says (hat as we. approached Malolos residents pleaded with the insurgent authorities to surrender to the Americans, and that the pleaders were shot.

MacArthur to oscillation which caused the moving gleams that terrified me. " 'Ha! ha!' said I, on descending into the cabin, a wiser and a more sleepy man, 'scared by my own dog Hector! I have been as great a gull as ever touched salt water.' "A fortnight afterwards I shipped with old Jack Hislop as second mate, and the fifteenth day saw us running before a smart topgallant brtseze into the Gulf of Florida, bound v*lth a cargo of rum, sugar and molasses for the Clyde. "So that is my ghost yarn. It conveys a moral, does it not? Order them to strike the bell forward. Hislop, call the watch; see how hep head bears, and let us turn in." (To be continued.)

I took a third and last pull at the Jamaica jar; said my prayers over again, with more than usual devotion, adding thereto the wish that I should soon have a spanking craft of my own. . with its mates Lynx and Sunflsh, left St. Ives on a passage to Falmouth. On the way the Thrasher grounded on a point, causing serious injury to the boilers and the bursting of the main feed-pipe. The burst pipe instantly filled the stokehold with scalding steam. In it were two stokers, Edward Lynch and James Paul. All the rest of the boat's company were landed on the rocks, but the doubling up of the deck had prevented the egress of the stokers by the starboard hatchway. There was still a port hatchway, which was partially closed, and towards this the two men made their way, Lynch in the lead. Directly under the hatchway and discharging through it, was the break in the steam- pipe. Lynch rush through it safely, and turned to help his mate Paul. But an instant convinced him thaV Paul was unable to follow. Then Lynch lay down on the deck with his head and face in the escaping steam, seized hold of the sinking Paul, ami by a remarkable exercise of force and tenacity drew him up on the deck. Lynch then rose to his feet, but it. was observed that he was badly scalded about the head, arms and upper part of the body. The surgeon began to apply oil and wool to his burns, but he repelled the attention. "I'm all right," he exclaimed; "look after my chum! He's very bad!" He had said nothing about the way he had rescued Paul, but his manly conduct led the surgeon to investigate, and it was ascertained that, in order to rescue his comrade, he had plunged the whole upper part of his body into what was practically a boiling cauldron. More than this, it appeared that Lynch had previously sacrificed his own chance of escaping from the stokehold the other way in order to stay with Paul, in recognition of this act of selfsac- rlfice and bravery, Lynch was presented with the Albert Medal of the first class, which is given primarily for gallantry in saving or attempting to save life at sea, and in some cases, for similar acts : ashore. Falsehood is cowardice.—Ballou. when our messengers approached the truce bearers turned and ran two miles back to their capital. We began an instant pursuit and were received with heavy volleys from the outskirts. On our right the jungle swarmed with little blue figures. It was the rear guard protecting tbo retreat of the rebel army and destroying the railroad track as they swept on before us. . The Americans camped all night, their line reaching across the valley, the generals holding a council of war around a campfire under a tree. They believed that on the morrow we might have to fight 20,000 men. Hattle Line ForniB at I>iiwn. At dawn the line of battle was formed. Its order was this: The Third artillery and the Montana and Kansas regiments on the right; on the left the South Dakota and Nebraska regiments and the Utah battery. The battle opened with a bombardment of the trenches iu front. For half an hour our shells fell in a shower. From the huts the natives threw knives at the Kansas men, while showers of arrows fell upon our right. Our right wing, unbroken, advanced over fields and through streams and thickets, taking the main trenches south of the city. They found them deserted. The condition of the rebel earthworks gave proof of the wonderful accuracy of our artillery fire. A few trembling men came out to meet our advancing line of bristling steel. They said that the army had gone by the railway toward the interior. Volleys from the woods harassed Hale's brigade and a few men were wounded. The Kansas men led the left as we reached the city. At the end of the main street there was a stone barricade. Scattering bold spirits among the insurgents, concealed behind this, poured a hot fire into the Kansas ranks. But Col. Funston, leaping from his horse and swinging his hat, yelled encouragement to his men. Kausus Area. In First. With the colonel at their head, the Kansas men dashed over the barricade and down the street with terrific yells, firing volleys as they ran. The Kansas boys followed the colonel as ho leaped the barricade, and were with him when he reached the square where the walls of the flaming palace were crashing in. Sweeping the square, the Kansans advanced to the other side of the town, where they rescued a hundred Chinamen, who were being driven to the woods by the Filipinos under threats to cut their throats. The little city was a scene of desolation, but now in the square the American flag floats beside the still burning palace, while the troops cheer lustily. Our brown flriiig line extends in a crescent three miles from tip to tip. Having deserted Malolos, the insurgents can make no serious resistance. Their troops Will become bandits. Three companies of the rebels threw their rifles into the river.

Otis seem to indicate a purpose to pursue Aguinaldo to his new headquarters. This may be done by means of detachments of troops, and not by a single large command, since the rebel army is now apparently disorganized. There was some talk in the cabinet meeting Friday of giving Otis instructions as to the future conduct of the campaign, but it was the general feeling that the commander should be left free to make his own plans for the present. * * He Who Pursues Two Hares^Catches Neither*" Said a well known young man about town, "t tried for years to burn the candle at both ends, in the pursuit of pleasure while trying to attend to business.
