On Friday our army entered Guay
ania, ai'ter a skirmish, tiie Spanish
forces retreating, and, according to re
port throwing their dead into a well.
The Spanish Cabnet was yet consider
ing the terms of peace and McKinley
and his Cabinet were anxiously await
tho answer.
During the latter part of last week so
many cases of yellow fever appeared in
the army at Santiago, that it was de- 1
cided tc send Gen. Shafter's army home
as soon as the Spanish prisoners wure
embarked for their own country-. Two
regiments of cavalry left for
the U. S., Sunday.
On Monday the reply of the Spanish
government to the peace conditions
arrived in Washington in seven sections
—all in cipher—and the French em
_ . baasy was kept busy deciphering it
A fight occnrred that evening in the
outskirts of Manila between some Span
ish troops and the 10th Beg P. V. I. in
which the Spanish were repulsed with
heavy loss. Our loss was put at 9 kill
ed and 44 wounded.
Tuesday afternoon the French minis
ter at Washington and hi:i secretary,
appeared at the White 'House and pre
sented President McKinley with a copy
of Spain's answer to his peace terms in
English. The President and Secretary
Day discussed the matter with the two
Frenchmen for an honr and a half, but
afterwards gave out no news. The
Spanish reply is understood to have
been very lengthy, going into details,
and insists that the United States
retains control of Cuba in order to se
cure Spanish interests in the island.
On Tuesday word reached this
country via Hong Kong of a battle
that had been fought at Manila on July
81st and Aug Ist and 2nd between three
*or four regiments of our volunteers and
8000 Spanish troops, in which we had
13 killed and 10 seriously wounded,
while the Spanish losses we put at 350
killed an .I and 900 wounded.
It seems that the Spanish garrison at
Manila took advantage of a local feast
or holy day to attack our lines, when
the insnrgeants would not ;fight, but
they were repulsed. The battle was
fought daring a tremendous rain storm.
Several members of the 10th regiment
whose homes are in Washington and
Westmoreland county were killed.
Yesterday Secretary Day and Ambas
sador Cam bon agreed upon a protocol
of peace which includes the evacuation
of Cuba, the cession of all the other
Spanish West Indies to the United
States, and the cession of the Ladrones
to the U. S.,—the Phillipines and other
matters to be left to Peace Commission
This protocol to be agreed to by Spain
within 4# hours or all negotiations to
The laying of the corner stone of the
new capitol took place at noon yester
day in the presence of a large gathering.
The grand lodge of Masons of Pennsyl
vania were in charge, and some of the
moat'distinguished men of the State
were present to honor the occasion. A
heavy rain fell daring the ceremonies,
and yet it did not dampen the ardor of
those who took part.
The corner-stone is that used in the
historic capitol destroyed by fire in Feb
ruary, 1897. The guests of the capitol
building commission included State
officials, jndgea of the supreme and su
perior courts and members of the Legis
At the close of the ceremonies a colla
tion was served in the supreme court
chamber. Colonel A. K. McClure, of
Philadelphia, who delivered the oration
at the laying of the stone, was enter
tained at luncheon that afternoon by
Governor Hastings at the executive

lanes suggested by seeing young men
outside the church during service.
As we todav in the church did meet,
We marked, oh many a vacant seat,
And sadly thought of the painful trnth,
That the companions of our youth—
The pride of many a parent's heart,
Could thus with the scoffer bear a part;
And letting the precious moments glide
So thoughtlessly,
Still remain outside!
We saw with pride that a few there were
Whose brows were not marked by age
or care.
Who waited to hear the word today;
Nor did with the thoughtless numbers
And we felt thoir lives would brighter
And happier far, their eternity
Than their s—though the doors be open
Who still will choose
To remain uutside!
But, oh! young men, when your youth
has lle<l,
And its brightest hopes are withered
and dead -
When age has drawn its lines on yonr
And your limbs are no longer as active
as now—
Will the thought of the hours now idled
Brighton the hours of declining day?
And will you recall, with pleasant pride,
The days when yon choose
To remain outside?
And when death has stilled your now
beating heart.
And from all your loved ones on earth
you must part,
And yon at the bar of the Just must ap
To render an account of the deeds done
And when you gaze on the land of the
blest - ■
See others aiter into the place of rest,
And see the pearly gates, as they open
Will you then be coutent
To remaiu outside?

Some sharpers appeared on tbt scene
with chnckaluck games and ' wheels

operation a short time an armed detail
appeared to arrest then* and the gam
biers quickly disappeared in the woods.
After the detail was marched back to

Geo. Thompson celebrated pay day by
getting stung on the cheek by a hornet.

office, tried and convicted the culprits,
sentenced each to pay s•><) fine and costs

The popnlation of San Juan i« that of

inhabitants of tha dlstricto, that is to
say, the country around the town San
Jnan, built on a small island connected
with the main land with the San Anto
nio bridge, ifl quite a beautiful citj,
with straight bat narrow strtet? and
many tine buildings. It has venil
public institutions and colleges several
churches, and seven email parks, among
them the Plazuela de Santiago, with a
very good statute of Columbus. The cits
is lighted by gas supplied by an English
company and by electricity supplied by
a local corporation. There are eleven
newspapers of all kinds, principal one
fct-ing La ConvspoiKleucia, a daily polit
ical paper, with a circulation of about
7.IHK) copies, which is equal to that of
the other papers combined. There is p
local telephone company, but no watei
except that of the cisterns. A reservoir
was projected and the plan was appro
ved by the Government some fifty yeavs
ago, but owing to the manana system it
hss not been finished yet.
The history of the Spanish adminis
tration m the island is one of cruelty
and corruption. The Spanish began by
exterminating the native Indian popu
lation, which some historians place at
5W.000, in less than a century. Every
branch of the administration of the is
land is conducted nr>der a system of
corruption, the law is constantly violat
ed by the Spaniards and the natives are
derived ot their rights At the
elections the Spanish or Conservative
party aJways wins, notwithstanding the
fact that it is a lartre minority.
The liberty of the press is unknown.

Spanish papers attacking the Govern

A Baptist ex minister by the name of
Jernegan, who hain't worked at his
profession mnch ot late, seems to have
used his clerical reputation to work a
lot of nnsnspecting New England
people out of their savings by -telling
them stock in the Electrolytic Marine
Salts Company, organized for the pur
pose of extracting gold from sea water
by a secret process known only to
Jernegan. The works were located at
Lube - Maino, and an office was opened
in Boston, to which an occasional gold
brick was sent as a sample of the pro
duct of Maine sea water submitted to
the Jernegan secret process. These
specimen gold bricks made shares of
stock sell like hot cakes, and induced
reputable and well-known people to in
vest their money and interest them
selves in the management of the con
cern. It is claimed that one million
shares of stock at one dollar per share
have been sold, and that of this amount

Shall illumine the beanty of Heaven,
When we rest in that blessed home.

I have a Heave Cure that will cure any
case ot heaves in horses in forty days, if
used according io directions, and if it
does not do what I claim for it, T will
refund the amount paid and uo charges
will tie made for the treatment. The
following testimonials arc tue stroftgests
proof of the medicines power to cure:
u tier, I'a., 1893.
Mr. A. J. McCandless:
On the jnd day of April, 1592 I com
menced to use voar new cure for one of
my horses that hail the heaves very bad,
and continued to use the medicine for
about forty days and the h >rse did not
show any signs of a return of them It is
now about a year since I quit giving the
medicine and the horse has fever showed
auy sign of heaves, and 1 feel satisfied
that he is properly cured.
W. C. Criswell.
ntier, Pa.,
A, J. McCandless*
I have used your Heave Cure and
find it will do the work if used accord
ing to directions. Youry truly,
I. B. McMillin.
Your Stationary.
It is getting to be the proper thing
lor farmers as well as merchants and
other business men to have printed Hta
tioiiary. And we can see no reason
why they should not take their proper
place nmoug business men by adopting
busineHf methods in as many ways as
possible. There is a combination of
business and sentiment in jiivinK your
farm a name like "Valley View Place.
"Maple Spring Farm" "Hillside, or
something ol th« kind, as it lends « cer
tain dignity and individuality to th*>
p ace, an in <lll e<>f pride in the
proprietorship thereof, as well as addi
lOJ .1 IMPORTANCE in the eyes of produce
dealers or commission merchants with
whom you are dealing. A small invest
ment in printed stationary giving your
evidence and business, sin h as breed
mg of turoughbred stock, the manfac
ture of dairy produce etc., might proye
of uo slight advantage to you, as well
as giving a certain degree cd satisfac
tion And when you conclude to have
some note heads and envelopes printed
remember that the same can be had at
the CITIZEN office as cheap and good as
anyv here.
