Havana, Aug. 21. Tbe Cuban

acknowledged, although reluctant
ly, by the Cuban government. Tbe
situation is very eerioue, owing to
the fact that all of those participat
ing were famous in tbe late war for
mil tary prowess.
The rebels are trying to force for
eign intervention as well as Amer
ican. They attacked the home of
the Danish consul near the resi
dence of the American minister and
stole 12 blooded hordes. Raiding
continues in various sections, the
rebels taking borees on which to
mount their followers.
Rebels tried to force their way in
to the city today. They were dis
covered by the police and fled after
an exchange of shots at the thresh
old of the capitol. " '
There was fighting today at the
bill of Pinar del Rio. ' The govern

Spokane, Wash., Aug. 2I. Ice
forms constantly at the surface of
the ground along the Little Spo
kane river, eight miles from tbis
citv. throughout the summer. The
existence of this natural refrigera
tor has just been discovered by E
R. Ptterson and W. I Kaka, who
own the land on which it exist?.
The Little Spokane., Refrigerator
company, for the purpose of keep
ing fruits, vegetable, butter and
eggs and other perishable stuff in
cold storage, is being organized, in
the expectation cf developing
great industry from this diecovery.
It is proposed to dig a giant artifi
cial cave at tbe place wh re reser
voirs with water which will freeze
and add to the frigidity of tbe tem
perature to the extent that will pro
duce natural refrigeration for hun
dreds of carloads of fruit.
Drafts of co'd air that fairly
swept them of them iff their feet,
as tbey removed boulders from the
land in question, and tbe formation
of ice wheie water1 ' seeped through
between rocks on the shady side of
boulders, resulted in tbe investiga
tion by Peterson and Rake that
mateiiilizsd in the unique dis
covery. For three weeks they have
been quietly investigating the
ground in tt at vicinity, and find it
is frozen to tbe depth of several
feet and that all surface) water is
promptly congealed tbeie3n. '
Oi-e remarkable feature of their
diecovery is that they can actually
mine ice. In fa;t they hive kept
the refi iterators in their own homes
supplied for a fortnight by chunks
of ice dug from the earth. With
pick and shovel tbey have dug a
wagonload at a time and believe
there is an inexhaustible supply.

tbe carbineers were compelled to
make tbeir way to that city on foot
