Spanish soldiera advising them to leave
the sovereignty of . Spain and to join
their Cuban brothers. He pointed out
that they are ill-fed, poorly clothed,
badly paid and unappreciated in the
Spanish army, and promises them good
treatment, good food and a good home
for their families and a future for them
selves under the Cuban le public. Many
of the young Spanish troops have taken

Nevertheless Aguirre arrived' here yes

Colonel Aguirre comes here upon an

Maceo and his uncle. In an interview,
he said :
"Last summer we pursued a fabian
policy. This summer it will be a policy
of vigor. The fever is eating up the
Spanish. We propose to take advantage
of their weakness and shall force the

Henry Cook Shoots Mrs. K. M.
and KJUs Blmself.
Portland, July 15. Shortly after
midnight, Henry Cook, a saloon man,
shot Mrs. E. M. Marr, a lodging-bouse
keeper, with whom he is said to have
been living, and then, putting the re
Tolverto his mouth, shot and killed
himself. The shooting took plact on
Mill, near Second street. When the
woman, who had fallen to the sidewalk,
saw Cook lying at her side, she kicked
him to see that he was dead, and then,
seeing he could not harm her ' further,
struggled to her feet and made her way
to the Second-street car barn, at Market
street, where the night watchman on
duty found ber and telephoned the
The patrol wagon brought the woman
to the police station, where Dr. Wheeler
made an examination of her wounds,
which were not considered fatal. Cook
had fired three shots' at her, two of
which took effect in the back of ber bead,
one entering behind the ear and coming
out on the opposite side, and the other
lodging in the back of the skull. So
closely had her murderer assailant held
the revolver to her bead that the whole
right side of her face was blackened and
blistered by the discharge.
Cook made a eure job of himself, the
bullet going up through the roof of bis

More SllTor lo be Coined.
San Francisco, July 14. The coinage
of silver will be immediately resumed at
the mint in this city and will be carried
on on a large Scale for the rest of the
year. The silver coinage for the
year ending June 30 has been very small,
notably in the third and last quarters.
The annual closing up of the mint and
sealing of the vaults retarded the work
at the mint for nine or ten days in the
new fiscal year, but the coinage of the
white metal is now in full awing.
"We will not coin less than $600,000 in
silver this month," said Superintendent
Daggett yesterday, "despite the fact that
we lost the time up to the 9th or 10th.
We will do better than that next month,
and will continue the coinage of silver
until other orders, are received. We
have on hand 11,000,000 ounces of fine
silver in bars, and I am of the opinion
that the bulk of that will be turned Into
coin rapidly. I have no idea why this
sudden activity in the coinage of silver.

A Fatal Feast ol Green Apples.
Cincinnati, July 15. On July 4, the
inmates of the ' city infirmary were
treated to green apples, lemonade and
other luxuries. The inmates drank and
ate '- too much ; sickness followed, and
eight have since died from the effects of
the festivities on that day, as follows :
Barbara Bauer, aged 53 ; Henry Hol
dier 74 ; Mary Thorndey, 70 ; Edwin
White, 90; Gertrude Vonderspeck, 75;
William Hare, 68 ; John McDermott, 55 ;
Mrs. M. L. Baasett, 65.
It's an. old saying "The proof of the
pudding is in the eating of it." And it
is because people have taken Simmons
Liver Regulator that they know it to be
a most excellent medicine and especially
for the Spring and Fall when there is so
much Malaria in the air. Mr. W T. Lee,
of Pendleton, N. C. says, "I have used
Simmons Liver Regulator for twenty
years, in place of calomel and quinine."
