Patriotic Convicts.
Even convicts can be patriotic, as
the prisoners at the Columbus, 0.,
penitentiary proved the other morn
ing. They were at chapel when sev
eral members of the naval reserves
belonging to one of the Cleveland
companies entered the hall. Chaplain
Winget was then offering up prayer,
but the pent up enthusiasm of the
prisoners could not wait for the end of
bis petition to the throne of grace.
They rose to their feet and despite the
efforts of the guards to quiet them
cheered long and loud for the uni
forms the boys wore. No convict
will be punished for this breach of
the rules.—Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Frank T. McNaruey who was captain
of Company 11 in this city, but resigned
and enlisted in the 10th U. S. regular
infantry, was in the battle at Santiago,
but escaped without injury. The fol
lowing is from a letter written by Mr.
.McNaruey to a friend in this city:
Before Santiago. .July C, 1.598.
By good luck I am still safe without a
scratch. We opened the ball July Ist
and for nearly half of the day we were
under a deadly hail of everything and
from all sides, and we couldn't sec a
thing. We were actually in a slaughter
pen, but we kept on the go, till wc did
sight the Spaniards then we forced them
back almost into the city. The Ameri
can loss was about 1,200 killed and
wounded, but we gained ground and
captured positions which seemed almost
impregnable. The Spaniards are not the
weaklings and cowards the papers make
them out to be, but they stubbornly dis
puted every inch of ground we passed
over and brave men fell 011 all sides.
The Tenth was in the firing line and in
front for five days, two and a half of it
under heavy lire and short rations—the
first day none and the second none—
until evening of the fifth day, when we
were relieved from the firing line and are
now trying to rest until such time as we
take it again which will be soon. There
has been a truce since noon of the third,
but I believe the ball opens at 5, it is
now 3. Our artillery is no good—the
Spaniards can si'ence them as fast as
they get up, but they can't stop the ad
vance of the infantry of our small army.
We now have them pretty near cornered,
and Gen. Shafter has demanded the
surrender, which I understand they have
refused. This is a hard country to fight
in. It hardly seems possible to have
gained our present position, it is all
mountains and the Spaniards have strong
intrenchments, and a perfect net work of
barb wire fences, hid by small trees
through which we must charge. I was
at the extreme iron: all the time and did
my duty to the very letter. Sargt.

volunteer seouts who advanced ahead of

Five men were shot in Co. H, but none
of them killed; both of our Majors were

cent, in the regiment in killed and
War is a bad thing, but I am still
feeling fine, as 1 said in a letter from
Tampa and 1 think 1 have already made
a couple of good skirmish runs on the
Spaniards. I think, after our next fight
we will have some rest as 1 expect we
will take the city. I propose to be in
everything that the 10th is in, and take
chances. Still have some hope of the
Spaniards surrendering, in which case
the fighting here would be over.

Decisions Important to County Com- '
Congressman Hicks, at the request of
J. Horace Smith, esq., solicitor for Blair
county, submitted recently to the com
missioner of internal revenue a ques
tion as to the liability of county com
missioners and county treasurers under
the new tax law. Recently Mr. Hicks
received a reply from the commissioner
in which the commissioner says "that
an order drawn by county commission
ers in their official capacity upon the
county treasurer in discharge of the
duties imposed upon them by law is
not subject to the stamp tax."
The commissioner further says as to
the county treasurer: "That the county
treasurer drawing a check on the bank
and signing it in his official capacity as
county treasurer, in payment of an
order drawn upon him by the county
commissioners, must be regarded sis
the exex-cise of a function belonging to
him strictly as an officer of the county,
and therefore 110 stamp is required to
be affixed to such check."
It has generally been supposed that
when a county treasurer deposited his
money in a bank that such deposit was
for the convenience of the treasurer,
and that the checks of the treasurer
would be subject to the stamp tax.
The commissioner, however, holds, as
is noticed by his decision abovequoted,
that checks drawn by the county treas
urer as such are not subject tot lie
stamp tax. If this be a proper inter
pretation of the law we suppose it ap
plies equally to checks issued by a city
Tariff anil Price of Wool.
Under free wool the price dropped
to 12 cents per pound. The present
price of wool is due to the Protection
afforded by the Dingley Tariff bill.
The market has now nearly reached
the point at which wool can be im
ported under the new Tariff. When
our unwashed wool has reached the
price of about 22 cents per pound the
full protection afforded by the Dingley
Tariff will have been reached. Under
the McKinley Tariff of 1889-90 the
price of wool was 22 to 24 cents per
pound, which is the highest point it
has reached in 12 years. Following
this, for a period of two years under
Grover Cleveland and no tariff, the
price was about 13 cents per pound
for unwashed wool.
Owing to the Dingley Protective
Tariff the price to-day for unwashed
wool is 20 cents per pound, and with
the return of prosperous times and the
consumption of the enormous amount
of foreign wool brought in under free
duty during' the first half of the year
1897 we shall have reached the point
where the wool will receive the full
benefit of the Tariff which will advance
the price of unwashed wool from 2 to 4
cents above the present price. This
will again revive the wool industry in
this country and greatly increase the
next year's clip.—Meadville Republi

ful repast, at which wit and humor aixd
merry laughter were indulged iix a
pleasant hour or two were enjoyed in
social chat and pleasant conversation.
The happy young couple took the

friends. After a tour of a few weeks
they will return and settle down to

We extend to the newly wedded pair
our cordial greeting and best wishes

Canned Tomatoes.
The statement that large shipments
of canned tomatoes are being made
from Tampa to supply the troops in
Cuba needs some explanation. The
canned tomatoes are not warmed up or
cooked again before using, but are
eaten cold, just as they are taken from
the can, forming a very acceptable
ration for mexx living oix bacon, beans
and "tai ks," as the hard-tack biscuits
are feelingly referred to. Canned to
matoes furixish a refreshing and palat
able vegetable supply in concentrated
form. In fact, they take the place of
fruit and vegetables and are often eaten
before bi'eakfast, the soldier in the field
craving food of that sort.

Private Jesse n. Baker,
The following story, which was told
in the Pittsburg Times a few days
since, will prove interesting to a great
many Pennsylvanians who are person
ally acquainted with the subject of the
"Private, what have you got in that
It was an officer in the uniform of
the United States artillery, a member
of the staff of Maj. Gen. Graham, com
mander at Camp Alger, Va., who per
emptorily put the question. Thesoldier
he addressed was a heavy-set fellow of
about 42, with a keen, shrewd face and
smiling lips shaded by a brown mus
tache. The insignia on his uniform
showed that he was a private in Com
pany D, Sixth Pennsylvania Volun
teers. In one hand he carried a two
gallon brown jug, and by the way it
weighed him down to one side it evi
dently wasn't empty. Saluting the
officer, lie promptly replied:
" Water, sir!"
"Yes, sir."
" Where are you going with it? "
"I am taking it to the surgeon gen
eral of the United States at Washing
ton, so that it may be analyzed in order
I that we may know whether or not it is
lit to be used by the Sixth Pennsylvania
The officer rather doubtfully pulled
| the cork and smelled the contents of
the jug. As a rule privates at Camp
Alger don't carry around water in jugs.
Satisfied, however, that it wasn't some
thing stronger, he handed the jug back
to the soldier and was about to pass on
when the latter began to ask some
"You graduated from West Point in
the class of 1877, didn't you?"
"I did," was the rather surprised re
"1 thought I remembered you," said
the private. " I used to drill you when
you were a 'plebe.' Do you remember
the roll call still?" And he ran down
the once familiar old call until he
reached the officer's name.
" That's my name," struck in the lat
ter. " Who are you ? "
"Jesse M. Baker," answered the pri
vate of D, Sixth Pennsylvania, and the
two shook hands.
It was ex-Senator Jesse M. Baker, of
Delaware county, he of "Baker ballot"
fame, who thus struck an old acquaint
ance. In the rolls of the volunteer
army there is possibly no more signal
example of the stuft' our soldiers are
made of than Mr. Baker affords. He
was educated at the Pennsylvania Mili
tary academy, and then entered West
Point, but didn't graduate, because, as
he expresses it, he was "shy on his
French." His lack of knowledge of
that language didn't keep him out of
the Pennsylvania National Guard, how
ever, for ho entered that organization
in 1877 and worked himself up until he
became major in the Sixth regiment.
That position he resigned about a year
ago in order to devote his time wholly
to the law. But the war with Spain
broke out, and he at once enlisted as a
private in his old regiment. In that
capacity he served until a day or two
ago, when Gov. Hastings commissioned
him first lieutenant in Company K,
Fourth regiment, which, under Col. D.
B. Case, is now at Tampa, Fla., await
ing orders for Cuba.
Even had the Governor not given
Private Baker this promotion, it is not
likely that he would have been a pri
vate very much longer. President
McKinley heard of Private Baker from
Postmaster-General Charles Emory
Smith, and sent word to Secretary
Alger that a staff position must be
found for him.
"Then," the President added to Mr.
Smith, " I want you to have Baker's
story written up and printed."
It is worth printing, this story of a
man who studied at West Point, became
a lawyer, was twice district attorney of
Delaware county, served two terms in
the House and one in the Senate of
Pennsylvania, where he identified his
name with our present voting system,
was 20 years in the National Guard and
became major of his regiment, and then
went to the front as a private soldier.
Armies which can show men like this
will bear the flag to victory anywhere
they may be sent.
What it night Say.
Said a citizen the other day: "Wei
expect the local paper to say all of the
good things about us. It goes to help
fill up the news columns, and the news
is what the people take the paper for."
Very true, friend, your argument is all
right and very convincing, but did you
consider all the unpleasant things that
the local paper might truthfully say
about you—but doesn't—would sell ten
papers to the complimentary items
one ? We regret that human nature is
built that way, but nevertheless it is,
and the fellow making a newspaper in !
a community where everybody is sup-1
posed to know everybody's business I
better than his own, finds it much more j
difficult to determine what to leave out !
of the sheet than what to put in. I
