A STRIKING CONTRAST.
It is stated that when the Spanish
war vessels steamed out of Santiago
harbor the officers stood over gun
Tiers, engineers and seamen with re
volvers in band. Every man was
urged to ito bis utmost by threat of
instant death. The gunners were
urged to fire rapidly, with little at
tention to accuracy. AM the men
were held to their p'aces duriDg the
tattle, not 03- appeals to their patri
otism nor theft pride, but by threats.
This affords a most remarkable
contrast to the conduct of American
seamen under similar circumstances.
"When Dewey went into Manila bar
"bor the risk was supposed to be as
great as that facing Cervera vhcn
he steamed out cf Santiago harbor,
but not a single man in all of "Dew
ey's fleet hesitated for an instant in
doing his full duty. Everywhere
there was eagerness and enthusiasm.
The men had to be restrained rather
than urged forward.
This has been the rule in every
engagement in winch the navy has
participated. The men are even
more eager than the officers for bat
tle. The- are as ready as the officers
for all sorts of adventure and dar
ing exploit. They are under excel
lent discipline and have been well
trained. But, independent of this,
it is the traditional spirit of the navy
that influences every man to do his
hest Without urging.
Soon after the battle of Manila
Admiral Dewey said in an interview
that the Erst lesson taught by that
hat tie was that naval battles are de
cided more by the quality of the
guns and the skill of the men serving
them than . anything else. The sec
ond lesson, he said, was the value of
skilled men behind the guns, or, in
fact, on board ship, whether these
mru be officers or seamen. He
would be inclined to say now that a
third lesson was in the magnificent
spirit and patriotism of the officers
and men. With good vessels, good
guns and good men behind the guns,
the American navy is invincible.
GUNS AND THE MEN BEHIND
The American army in front of
Santiago is armed with what is re
garded as one of the very best of
modern magazine rifles. This was
selected by a board of army officers
sifter tests that extended over wetks
and months under the supervision of
the Lest shots of the army. The
Spanish soldiers carry the Mauser
rifles of a little lighter caliber than
the rifles used by the Americans, but
considered by the Europeans one of
the very best in use. Effective
shooting has certainly been done on
The lessons of the battle point par
ticularly to the good marksmanship
of tho sharpshooters and to the use
cf smokeless powder. Oie theory
was that the use of smokeless powder
ia battle would be of advantage
mainly in the clearly view it would
gire the officers of their own men
and of the enemy. It was held that
the advantage of the old powder was
that it would, by surrounding the
field, give the men greater courage
and prevent the enemy from seeing
The experience at Santiago upsets
this this theory in one particular at
least. The American troops who
used the smokeless powder in firing
from the brush escaped the observa
tion of the enemy, while those who
used the old powder became at once
the target of the enem'. The smoke
from the rifles 6howed where the
line was and the enemy fired at the
After all that has been said of im
proved rifles, the experience at San
tiago shows that more depends upon
the man behind the gun than upon
the gun itself. Familial Hy "with his
rifle, practice in firing, and disciplino
that gives him a cool head make the
soldier effective in battle.
There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all othe diseases put
together, and until the last few years
was supposed to he incurable. For a
great many years doctors pronounced it
a local disease, and prescribed local
remedies, and by constantly failing to
cure with local treatment, pronounced
it incurable. Science has proyen catarrh
tube a constitutional disease, and there
fore requires conBtitnyonal treatment.
Hall's Catarrah Cure, manufactured by
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the market.
It is taken internally in doses from ten
drops to a teasuoonful. It acts directly
on the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system. They offer one hundred dollars
for any case it fails to cure. Send for
circulars and testmonials. Address,
