NO CENTURY BEGINS ON
There are some curious' facts
about our calender. No century
can begin on Wednesday, Friday
or Sunday. The same calendars
can be used every twenty years.
October always begins on the same
day of the week as January, April
as July, September as December.
February, March and November
begin on the same days. May,
June and August always begin on
different days from each other and
every other mouth in the .year.
The first and last days of thejjyear
are always the same. These rules
do not apply to leap year, when
comparison is made between days
before and after February 29th.

CURIOSITY OF TIME RECK

The two will not be able to cele

AT THE GRAVE OF POE.
For over half a century Uncle
Daniel Spence has been the sexton
of Westminister church, one of the
oldest in Baltimore. Around it is
a graveyard which contains a
simple shaft of marble with the
words "Edgar Allan Poe" cut in
its base, while a medallion cut in
the shaft is an excellent likeness of
the dead poet.
Many years after Poe's body
was placed in this tomb there came
a dumb brute, who now watches
over his resting place. Believers
in the supernatural think that he
was sent there for the purpose.
About five years ago, Uncle
Daniel was presented with a dog
by the master of a Russisn vessel
which entered Baltimore Harbor.
The dog, on account of his ferocity,
was dreaded by the sailors, and
the captain determined to leave
him ashore. Sailor was taken to
the littte office which is in a cel
lar of the church. Beaten paths
along the sward between the
graves are made by his daily foot
steps, and by day and night he is on
The especial object of his solici
tude is the poets grave. Here for
hours at a time the dog will remain
and even Uncle Daniel cannot per
suade him to leave. One of his
favorite attitudes is to stand over
the stone coning. He seldom lies
downjbutiwilht-rernam - witH 'his
eyes fastened on the people who
eye him, as if he was looking for
some intruder. At times hej
leaves his dog house, at the back of
one of the largest tombs, and goes
to the grave for an hour or more at
a time, at night. Toledo Blade.
BOLD HOLD UP.
P. J. Jennings, a mining man
having an office in the Marquam
building, and residing at 363 Sixth
street, was held up on the corner
of Sixth and Clay streets at 8:40
last evening, by a tall man, who
pointed a gun at his head and com
pelled him to throw up his hands.
The robber went through him se
curing 50 cents and some jewelry,
making good his escape.
There is no doubt that this is
the same man who held up Otto
Mussler a lew mornings ago. A
man who lives iu the neighborhood
of the holdup says he saw the
robbery, but as he was some twd
blocks away he concluded that tt
was nothing more than two men
talking. He said that five minutes
after the holdup occurred there
were five policemen on the spot,
but not one robber. Saturday's

j CHAS. COCHRAN WRITES
His Brother About the Cuban
Bohemia Nugget is indebted to Mr.
John Cochran for the following extract
from a letter received from hia brother
Charles, who Is a member of the 1st
California infantry band nnd who saw
service In trie Cuban campaign. It is
regretted that space would not permit
of a more extended synopsis, of ..the
letter, which is full of. interesting facta
concerning the Isle de Cuba:
"Ybu'a'kcd mo to write up niy cam
paign experience. I will not try to
give everything in detail but will giyo.
you a very brief account of myself and
surroundings during that period.
"Tins' regiment was fortunate in
getting a good ship to come over on.
We were on the fidg ship "Scguranca"
which had no more than half the nuin
! ber that most of the other transports
carried. Therefore we had pfenty. of'
room and water. Some of the fhfps ran
short of both food and water as"we were
eight days on the trip.
"There waa some little excitement Jn
landing as we had to transfer jnto lf
boats about one mile from shore. Tho
waves were tisefng us around 10ce
I rubber balls with thirty-two men in the
boat that two was in.
"We were carrying something like
40 pounds each and if the boat had'
turned over or one had fallen out it
would have been goodbye.
"There were two of the band nearly
drowned when' we wqre within a few
yards of the shore being thrown ..out by
the high waves but were washed ashore.
"There were I men drowned that
dXin landing. ,
"On the Jstof July the 1st infantry
supported light battery "Jfi" 1st ni
tillery which demolished the fort ntI
Caney. There being no return (Ire we
passed that day jn looking qver tho
field of battle and'saw te cEarge on tho
foit which they took about 4:3b p. m'.
then the artillery pulled up nnd we all
joined the rest of tho troops near tho
town which was captured soon after,
una division (2nd) then marched threp
or four miles down the 'Voad toward Sau
Juan where another division of the
army had been fighting "that day arid
camped. Tho next morning the. ar
tillery and this regiment "marched back
over the same 'road past El Caney' arift
around about ' way Of about eight or ten.
miles and took a position near the - El
Poss fort about noon to open flre.on San
Juan but for sonio reason they ditf riot
"I guess it was on account of our
troops being so near that it waa
dangerous for fear of doing them dam
"The fort and Spanish trenches were
taken that afternoon and the Spaniards
withdrew into Santiago a mile or so to
the west. Then no more fighting ' done
until July 10th at 4 :20 . p, m,, when $9
had Santiago surrounded and, cqiii
menced bombarding the city. Then
was the time tho 1st infantry was 'in
somo danger. We wercr lying in x (ho
rear of a battery of artillery which tho
Spanish artillory. was firing at and the
bombs would burst over and nU around.,
us but only orio man was struck antra
horse killed near us. The inanwas'not
seriously " hurt bv the" piece1 of shell
which struck him as it hud comejn con
tact with two guns before it hit him
The bombarding. lasted till dark., TJw
noxt day a flag of truce was raised and
there waa no more fighting. 'TJvo city'
surrendered on July 14. Thereby t
escaped the lead.

malaria fever, while in Sanguis, Cu.ha
