Manila., Feb. 19. 3 p. m. The Cali
fornia volunteers abandoned the Gua
daloupe church at 5 o'clock this morn
ing, which has since been Bet on fire,
and retired to San Pedro Macati. The
' rebels still hold tbe country in the vicin
ity, of Guadalsupe, Paeig and Patero,
despite the efforts of the gunboats to
dislodge them from the jungles on both
sides of the river.
The heat is intense, and is increasing
perceptibly daily. Under present con
ditions, it is impossible to provide shade
for the troops in different parts of the
line, particularly Mc Arthur's division.
King's brigade is also exposed from San
Pedro Macati to Culiculi, where it joins
Mr. Higgins, the manager of tbe Ma-nila-Dagupan
railroad, is believed to be

and about six other Englishmen, some
of whom are accompanied by their wives
While it is unlikely that the natives of
the locality will harm them, it is feared
that others from distant provinces
might wreck vengeanceat their expense.
In view of the fact that, the enemy
were concentrating on the American
right, preparations were made last night
to give them a warm reception in the
event of attack.
General Ovenabine's line, consisting
originally of tbe North Dakota volun

troops ot the Fourth cavalry,

by two battalions of Oregon volunteers
and three troops of the Fourth cavalry
The Buffalo's searchlight discovering
the rebels unusually active about 10
o'clock in the evening, signaled the flag
ship for permission to fire upon them,
and, this being granted, bombarded tbe
enemy's trenches for 20 minutes. The
only effect of the fire was apparently to
drive the rebels further inland.
Beyond a few ineffectual volleys from
the trenches, which were returned with
interest, the enemy made no demonstra

Manila, Feb. 20, 10:10 a. m. The
enemy have apparently realized the
hopelesBnes of attacking the American
position, and are occupied chiefly "by
occasional aharp-ehooting from tbe
. jungle, whenever feasible. Fortunately,
their ignorance of the use of sights min
imizes the effect of their guerrilla tactics.

A Pleasant, Simple: but Safe and Ef
fecual Cure for It, '
Catarrh of the stomach ha? long been
considered the next thing to incurable.
The usual symptoms are a full or bloat
ing sensation after eating, accompanied
sometimes with sour and watery risings,
a formation of gases, causing pressure
on the heart and lungs and difficult
breathing; headaches, fickle appetite,
nervousness and a general played out
There ia often a foul taste in the mouth
coated tongue and if the interior of tbe
stomach could be seen it would show a
slimy, inflamed condition.
The cure of this common and obsti
nate trouble is found in a treatment
which causes the food to be readily .thor
oughly digested before it can to ferment
and irritate the delicate mucua surfaces
of tbe stomach. To Becnre a prompt and
healthy digestion is the one necessary
thing to do, and when normal digestion
is secured the catarrhal condition will
According to Dr. Harlanson the safest
and best treatment is to use after each
meal a tablet, composed of Diatase, Asep
tic Pepsin, a little Nux, Golden Seal
and iruit acids. These tablets can now
be found at all drugstores nnder the
name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and
hot being a patent medicine can be used
with perfect safety and assurance that
healthy appetite and thorough digestion
will certainly follow their regular use af
Mr. N. J. Booher, of 2710 Dearborn
street, Chicago, III., writes: ' "Catarrh
is a local condition resulting rom a
neglected cold in the bead, w hereby the
lining membranes of the nose become
inflamed and the poisonous discharge
therefrom passing backward into the
throat reaches tbe stomach, thus pro
ducing catarrh of the stomach. Medical
authoritiea prescribed for me for three
years for catarrh of the stomach without
cure, but today I am the happiest of
men after using only one box of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets. I cannot find ap
propriate worda to express my good feel
ing. I have found flesh, appetite and
sound rest from their use."
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the safest
preparation as. well as the simplest and
most convenient remedy for any form of
indigestion, catarrh of the stomach,
billiouanese, eour stomach, heartburn
and bloating after meals.
