CI.ARICE! & Co, loan money at 5 per cent,, w}tb optional payments In- SEXTON, April 5,— Editor of THE UPPER DBS MOINES: I enclose you a letter from Andrew Anderson, now in Manila. Mr. Anderson is 33 years old, born in Denmark, served- two years in the Danish army. He came to the United States, enlisted in our regular army, served three years, and when the war broke out with Spain he again enlisted in the service of Uncle Sam. He went out in the 1st Wyoming volunteers. Though born a Dane, his letter shows how truly he is American. His brother Sam and sister Anna live in this city. MANILA, Feb. 17.— Dear Sister Anna: About three weeks ago I wrote you from C'avite, I hope you have received my letter. I am again in Manila. We came here just in time to take part in the first battle with the insurgents, the account of which you have no doubt seen in the papers. In your last you said you never saw the 1st Wyoming mentioned in the papers. I enclose you a clipping from one of our papers giving us mention. Our regiment says little about what it does, but we have had our share of trouble. We left Cavite, Feb. 4, where we were relieved by the 51st Iowa volunteers, which returned from Iloilo where they had been confined on transport for three months. They said they were glad to get on earth again. We crossed the bay and landed at Manila at 2 p. m,, Feb. 4. We had just got settled for the night and were rejoicing in the prospect of a good night's rest, but soon learned we were not to rest. At 8 p. m. the call to arms was sounded and in less than 10 minutes we were out of bed and in line, awaiting orders, We could hear shooting along the outposts. We were ordered to await in quarters ready to march at a moment's notice. At midnight the bugle sounded to arms, and we feltsure we would be ordered to the front, but after an hour of waiting we were ordered to break ranks and to be ready to fall in at daybreak; so we lay down but we could not sleep, for the firing was kept up at the front. We were all up at daylight for we knew a battle was about to take place. Reports kept coming in that many were being killed. At 6 a. m. we were ordered to march. We only had 600 yards to go until we were in the midst of the fight. I never saw the men feeling better; they marched against the Mauser and Remington guiis as if it was only a sham battle. It was amusing to hear the boys when we returned toll of their narrow escapes. When we had captured St. Padre MoUali, a small village, we lay down to rest and we surely deserved the rest. In the afternoon we burned the town. This was a short job for the houses were made of bamboo. There were a good many pigs, chickens and goats in the village and we lived high. The fight lasted all day Sunday. On our Hprht were the 14th North Dakota vol- mi'.rrs, on our left the balance of the ariuj except two or three regiments left in Manila doing police duty. There was a terrible slaughter in the outskirts of Manila, the ground was just covered with dead natives. They had an estimated loss of 4,000 dead and wounded. Our loss was only about 50 dead and '300 wounded in the first day's fight. Monday night, Feb. 6, when I laid down to rest in the grass I out my hand on a bottle. We started for MftV nila at 9 p, m. The march was a, corker |or me; my hand bled all the way back. On the IQtb I went to the hospital and *~~~ been there ever since. Iwillre- «»y pQRiDany in a few days. My vnT, I that Dyes are tbe only dy that are guarantee^ If
