Waiting for Uncle Sam's Rations at Cavlte Tbe streets "of Manila present an active appearance during these days when tbe American army is occupying the place. All the sbops are open and natives, Spaniards and half- breeds throng the thoroughfares mingling with our boys in blue. Good- natured soldiers these boys in blue are too, listening all too readily to the wily tongue of the persuasive bar- gainer, and purchasing many a trinket that is probably worthless. The American soldier eats his rations day by day, and performs those duties required of him by his government, and cares not whether school keeps or not, as far as the shopkeeper is concerned. Ills one principal object Is to see tbat his stomach Is well filled. Our picture, taken from Harper's Weekly, will give you a fair idea of how our soldiers are fed in this faraway land* Our soldiers do not like the natives. In fact, |lhey [heartily despise them, and are much inclined to treat them in a bullying sort of way. This the native has brought about by bia lying and cheating, despicable traits that do not go down with an American. And then, feeling that he haa been unjustly dealt with, he fiercely resents the rough manner of our soldiers. So much depends upon the purity of the blood that by taking Hood's Sarsaparllla many different diseases are cured. Mr. N. N. Osburn, well known at Woodstock, Mich., was troubled with a lame back. He was persuaded to use Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It gave him relief in one night. This remedy Is also famous for its cures of rheumatism. For sale by B. Marsh and S. H Wyes.

S'^ A DANDY NEGRO 6URGIAH. looti Henry Stewart'* and Otto StelnHetmer's Hoaiet In Broad Daylight. A copper- colored negro burglar operated in Mld^letown this morning in broad daylight, and made quite a rich hanl. He was dressed like a dandy in a light colored frock coat, black trousers, light colored fedora hat and fine shoes. He wore a high standing collar, a flashy tie and horse show shirt with immaculate cuffs. The burglar first entered the dwelling of Otto Btelnhelmer on Sain street and there stole a silver watch and some trlnfreta of small value. Then he went to the home of Henry Stewart on Johnson street and succeeded in making a complete raid on the house without being disturbed. He took a gold watch, an old family heirloom valued at 8150, and a revolver. As the burglar was 'leaving the house by a window, John Wuttz, who keeps a •tore next door, saw him. Mr. Wurtz would have fired at him with a rifle jut hesitated and in the moment tbe burglar escaped. Chief of Police Kuhn was notified and set out in pursuit of the fugitive. LJp to the time of going to press he ias not been captured. The burglttr Is probably one ot the gang that has been operating in St. ,OU|B and has been driven out of the city by the police. Child's Sleeping Suits, very oom- ortable and just the thing for them. "Loud" or Charles Thomas. The Identity of the man drowned from Gollke &. Rust's barge on Saturday night is a mystery. He was known as Charles Thomas. Mr. Gollke says le gave his name as Lonis Thomas, when he came to work with him. He carried a card from the labor agent in St. Louis, when he began working withGolike& Rust two years ago. Jis people are believed to live in Indiana. A man works at the brick ilant who claims to be from the same nwn— Lafayette. Mr. Gollke thinks that when Thomas came here be was nsome trouble, and kept his real name a secret. Last summer he received a letter from his Bister in Indiana, but he did not reveal the name of the town she ived in. His letters came to him from St, Louis, where they had been addressed to a man named Polaok. He 'ell from the side of the barge and was seen and heard by tha otuer me n on ,he boat. Before they could get to ilmina skiff he had disappeared. Sis last call that they heard was, 'flurry up.boys." The drowned man was 28 years of age.

G AN All ONI AN TOUCHED. Clark McAdams, the Alton newspa- er man who has been writing for the Post-Dispatch, has been given a real xperlence in being "touched" by the iRbt-flngered gentry of St. Louis. Clark can now write up an article for he Sunday P.-D. on "How it feels to wake up and find your clothes gone with your money and diamonds, or he experience of a P.-D. man with midnight prowlers." Clark could write bat story with a realism that would >e painful. Whenever that pain would be relieved he might glance down at his snirt bosom where was wont to sparkle a $75 diamond that he won in a bicycle race at Jerseyville, and then the pain would come back in all its paintulness. There is nothing tut a round jagged knife-hole where he diamond was, and the sparkler now adorns the checked shirt (rout of a St. Louis burglar. About $28 in cash went with his pants, and the burglar s wearing the pants and spending the $23 drinking to the health of the P.-D. man. Clark retired at 2 o'clock Sunday morning in bis room leaving the door ipen for his room-mate, who was due wo hours later. When Clark awoke ie found that some one other than his >ed fellow had been there and made himself perfectly at home, too. His pretty diamond stud had been hastily nt from the snirt with a dull knife. Mark began to dress himself to go for he police, but he could not find bis ants and it is supposed that the burglar took them to prevent his victim pursuing him. Clark does not mourn so much for he clothes as he does for that $23 and lis diamond stud and he can not be lomforted. Tbe theft was probably he work of one of .the army of midnight prowlers now infesting St. lOnis, with whom the police there ave so far been unable to cope.

The audience was quite a large one and a representative Alton audience that showed its appreciation by frequent applause. Mr. Reed as Seymour Stltes was fully as good as iu any other roles in which be has appeared, and many a person iu tbe audience could see in him the old Roland Reed of "Lend me Your Wife.' His support was excellent In every particuly and every person on the stage was a star. Tbe parts were carried out finely and in this partlou lar left nothing to be desired. Miss Isadore Rush was a great favorite, particularly with the ladles, who are great admirers of her extra vagan toilettes. Miss Mable Florence aa Julia Bonds, and Miss Alethea Luce aa Tillie Bird, were very fine. Next to Roland Reed, Mr. Ohas. 8. Abbe in the part of WUteu' nephew, found popular favor. The attraction was an excelled} one and tbe Temple management should be encouraged in their efforts to bring high class attractions to Alton, by larger audiences. _ __ Notice of Removal.

Alderman (Wegener Arrested. Alexander Wegener, the eloquent orator representing the Seventh ward in the Olty Council, was arrested today on a warrant issued from Jnntice Brandeweide's court. The warrant was sworn out by Street Commissioner Schuelle, the offense charged being that of quarrying stone out of ;he public street on Baaton street be- iween 17th and 18th streets. Mr. Wegener was notified last July to stop quarrying on the streets, so Mr. Sehuelle said today, but the alderman would not stop. He claims to have permission to quarry in the street, But this is denied by the administration. The Street Commissioner determined that he would stop the alderman's quarrymen if he had to resort to the courts. For a good shave, hot and cold bath go to Maul & Hall, Piasa st. Hard and Soft Coal.
