Uttlo RHinon Stole » M»a«er Blflo from* Spanlnh Soldier and Then- Tramped k Lod(T DlHtanoe to Jcift- tbe Patriot Army. ... i . The smallest soldier in the 'Cuban army is Hamon-Fonseca, son of the fighting Col. Fonseco, whoso guerrillas worry the Spaniards a,bout the city of Puerto Principe, He is 11 years old, and four feet' in height,-'and. weiglis about SS pounds. He has been to school for a paa-t of the time, but he knowa more about skirmish lines than he does about arithmetic. ; He is ns familiar with the whirr of Mauser bullets as an American boy Is with the chirp..of :tli« cricket, and he can look into the flash of a Spunish volley without winking. . Littlo Eamon's father, says the New York Journal, forbade him to go to the front, so he live^'on a. farm ;ju»t but-_ aide of Puerto Principe with an uncle who is supposed to be loynl to the Spaniards. One afternoon a few month* ago a Spaniard column passed by the Panseca estateTand a hungry soldier slipped from the ranks to forage on liia lown account. Tho soldier spied a fine jpullet, nnd laid down his Mauser rifle -In the tall .grass-so as to give chase with greater swiftness. ' little Rftmon, who was hid in the house near, saw the net, and made hi* plan with the promptness of a veteran. He stole from the shed and hid the rifle under some old straw in one of Lhe stores, and then got out of the way as fast as hi« stocky little legs would carry him. The soldier danced and swore, and called on t>he saints until the rear guard was nearly out of sight; then he remembered that Cuba was not a safe place for soldiers straying from .the columns, so he captured a pig to make peace with the sergeant and hurried after the column. Eamon said nothing to his imrent, but after supper, when it ,<was dark, he shouldered the rifle ami started out to find his father's troop In the foreete that cover the foothills of the Sierra Najazes.

CUBA'S YOUNGEST PATRIOT.. only for the numbers of a pavty. When he struck from the main roads to the woods the darkness became so intense that he lost, liis way. Boughs of trees Btnick him in the face, and clinging brambles tripped him and tore his flesh, but he struggled on manfully, still lug- ting the ten-pound rifle. The moon rose, and, tired out, he soiux under a tree, where he spent the rest of. the night. At dawn he got up stiff ant hungry, but limped along pluckily, still 'carrying his precious rifle. ; The morn- Ing wore on and little Eamon still continued his search through the woods. At noon he heard the stamping of unshod horses' hoofs and saw mounted men approaching an opening in the forest. He didn't know whether they were insurgents or the Spanish guerillas, so he hid in o thicket of wild pineapples, and as they came by. he gave them the Cuban challenge: "'Halto, quicn va! Then he saw the red and blue cockade, and knew that he was among friends. It was a party of scoute of Col. Fonseca's force, who had started out from camp tho-t morning. Little Ramon was taken on a horse befotc one of them, nnd brought back to camp, rifle" and all, where be at once became a hero. After his pluckincss Col. Fonseca hnd not the heart to send him home, so he gave him a horse, a machete and a pouch of am-: jminition and enrolled him as a regular soldier of the tvoop. : At the battle of Saratoga, where the insurgents, under Gomez, -.for" three days stormed- the Spanish camp, little Bamon Fonseca rode each ilay under heavy gun fire in the foremost line of the attacking party. He.rode-aniid the smoke and shot as carelessly as the sol-. fliers. ' Men were wounded and fell dead about' him. but;to.him it wns pastime to be a renl soldier.

Armed with a snot- gun he proceeded to investigate the phenomenon, and much to his surprise and delight discovered that the wavering bine line was an immense flock of crones, most, of which were dancing with outstretched wings and fencing with their bills. His curiosily overcame his discretion. Hamlin drew closer to the birds, but' being attacked by two. of the largest wns compelled to use his gun in "-elf-defense. Immedi-. ately having discharged the weapon, he regretted his hasty action, for the whole flock rose as. one bird and, circling around him, made ft concerted attack upon him; After clubbing his assailants with the butt of his gun without apparent effect he made a dash for his hut. which he .finally reached without further injury than a few painful jabs from the spear-like bills of hi« pursuers, which .hovered round for some Wine, after he hndl escaped 'from their fury.. DEADLY KANSAS DUEL. Tbe Weapon* Bwd, Were l*r»e 8te»i» • Tractloni Engine*. The strangest d'iiel ever fought in America occurred -the other day in Jefferson county, KaaVnear the little town . of Totiganoxie, It was a battle between farmers in which steam traction engines were the weapons. When the battle waa'over one man was dead and both .engines were wrecked. . The threshing of wheat in Kansas is done by men who travel from one farm to another, with. their .threshers and traction engines. The engines travel from four to six miles an hour on country roads, pulling 'a- water tank, coal wagon, threshing machine, etc., behind them. •••••-.• A farmer named Ehrhart, hving.near Tonganoxie, 'had contracted : with Joe Peat to thresh his wheat. Peat had g-etner me nuge engines puneo uua snorted, the great driving wheels tear- Ing holes in the ground, neither paining an advantage. Then the men bached their engines several feet and aga : . pulled the trottles -wide open and if machines rushed forward. Again there was a collision, but this time it was not harmless. The huge iron monsters, weighing three or four tons each, had gained considerable momentum before they met and the noise of the collision was almost deafening.- Both men were now enraged, and each stuck to his post on the little platform behind the boiler and fire-box, from -which the steering apparatus, trottle 1 and reverse lever are controlled. As the engines met the one which Stevens •was controlling reared and then seemed to leap upon its antagonist. Stevens was thrown off the platform and the rr- coil buried him under debris, crushing the life out of him. Escaping steam scalded Peat so seriously that he was kept in bed several days. Both.engines we*'demolished and Farmer Ehrhart had to hunt up another man to do.his threshing. A'coroner's jury exonerated Peat, as it was conclusively shown that he was not responsible for the death ot 'Stevens. BOY HIT SOMETHING. H* Thoneht It W« » Squirrel, Bat It Fro red to Be nil Fa.
