LETTER FROM SANTIAGO.
Private John McNeil Writes to Bis Rel
atives Describing: Uie Battle.
The following letter, under date of
July 25th, was received a few days ago
from Private John McNeil, of troop C,
First United States Infantry, in Cuba.
He speaks at length on the battle and
tells numerous facts of interest concern
Santiago Db Cuba, July 25, 1898.
I thought I would write and let you
know that I am alive and well. Was
afraid you might be worrying about me
after hearing of the big battle we had.
It was surely a hard fight. The first
shot was fired at 6:20 on the morning
of July 1st, and it-was a continuous
fight until 12 on the 3rd, when a flag of
truce went up and a conference Ca coun
cil of war) was held. Gen. Shatter gave
them a week to get out ot the country
that was to turn over their arms to us
and be ready to surrender and leave for
Spain ; but when the time was up they
had not done so, and at 4 p. m. on the
10th we turned loose on them again.
Talk about a celebration 1 May be you
think we didn't have one. There were
dynamite nuns, eeige guns, and we had
thirty-six field guns, besides big shell.
When they are going through the air
you would think an overland express
was coming, and when they light you
would swear a machine shop had ex
ploded. Everything you could thing of
flies through the air, from a monkey
wrench to a steam hammer. I'll tell
you we gave them a merry time. One
of our dynamite shells hit a big gun
they were shooting at us and blew Span
iards, gun and all up in the air. I don't
believe half of the Spaniards have lit
yet; but you can bet we paid for the
fun we had with them. They sent back
very nearly as warm a fire as-we sent,
and many a comrade got killed or
wounded. There were lour wounded
out of our troop (troop E). But when,.
we got a bead on one of them, down
went his meat house. I think the whole
Iobs on our side was about 1800 killed
and wounded ; the Spaniards had over
6000 killed, and mercy only knows how
many wounded. I tell you the buzzards
lived for awhile. I think we had rd:
venge for them killing our sailors on
Maine. When the laet charge was made
every soldier's battle cry was "Remem
ber the Maine !"
One evening about 5 o'clock about
1200 Spanish cavalry made a charge on
The First and Tenth U. S. cavalrvj
were dismounted and we waited until
they were about 500 yards from us when
we poured it into them. Not one got to
our line,- and I don't believe that oyer
200 got back to Santiago. '
Well, I have told you all about the
fight, but that they surrendered on the
14th and we are now in Santiago.
I had one pretty close shave. A bul
let hit a rock at my feet and bounced
up and went into my canteen. I have
the bullet yet and am going to keep it
as a souvenir. One went through my
bat, but I did not know it until in the
evening. There was many a one whiz
zing around my ears. '

their outfit, they passed over the Barlow
road into the counties of the interior.
Mauffin describes his experience as
well worth having. He was enabled" to
see something of the agricultural an
mineral resources of the Inland Empire.
In some counties the pilerims stopped
and worked in the harvest and hay field
and had a touch of Eastern Oregon heat
While on the way they overtook an

Guker invited Mauffin to visit his
mine, and he gladly availed himself of
the opportunity. The visitor was as
tonisbed at what he saw. Guker took
him into the tunnel, and, picking up
a panful of rotten quartz, said he would
see what there was in it. . He panned it
out and found, after placing the gold on
the scale, that $165 had been realized
from the single pan.

Celebrate the Sixtieth Anniversary
Friday evening Mr. and Mrs. I. N.
Sargent were happy in the fact that
they were permitted to celebrate the
sixtieth anniversary of their wedding
and to entertain a number of their
friends upon the auspicious occasion.
Fortunate indeed are a husband and
wifi who have lived to a happy old age
side by side, and on their sixtieth anni
versary find themselves so happily situ
ated and in such good health as this
aged couple. . However, one would have
to be convinced before they could real
ize that either one of them bad passed
the eightieth mile-stone, so little does
their age tell upon them.
On the evening named a number ot
their intimate friends gathered to ex
tend their congratulations and spend a
pleasant evening. It was an event
which was thoroughly enjoyed by all
and will impress itself on their memo
ries. Several very useful and beautiful
presents were received by the happy
couple, expressing the good wishes and
friendship of the donors.
Mr. and Mrs. Sargent are beloved by
all with whom they come in contact,
and not only those who were guests, but
their host of friends extend their con
gratulations, and -wish they may spend
many more years of happiness together.
