apparently realized tlie hopelessness of
attacking the American position, and
are occupied chiefly by occasional
sharpshooting from the jungle, when
ever feasible. Fortunately, their ig
norance of the use of sights minimizes
the effect of their guerilla tactics.
Tlie retiiement of General King’s
advance posts upon San Pedro Macati
has evidently been construed by the
rebels as a sign of weakness, as they
pressed forward along both sides of the
river, persistently harrassing the occu
pants of the town.

MRS. GROVER CLEVELAND.
Beloved in Princeton and la the Rec
ognized Head of Its Society,
Mrs. Grover Cleveland, the wife of
ex-Presldent Cleveland, lias been, since
the time of her arrival in Princeton,
N. J„ two years ago, as a resident be
loved by rich and poor alike, and as a
woman of fashion the acknowledged
leader of Princeton society. It lias not
been a life of endless dinners, cotillons
and soirees, but rather one of domestic
ity, combined with constant associa
tion with the people who constitute the
polite society of the famous old uni
versity town. And Mrs. Cleveland is
very iiopular among tlie undergradu
ates. Twice a year she gives a recep
tion to the students whom she knows,
and on several occasions has chaperon
ed partlee of fair debutantes who have
come into town for the dances, at din
ners or teas given at the upper-class
clubs. She is invariably placed at the
head of the list of patronesses of the
bops and senior dances, and on many
occasions has graced the affairs at the
Casino with her presence.
But aside from the dinners and re
ceptions that she gives and attends
with her distinguished husband, it is
her home life that she most enjoys.
Her four children are at the age when
the mother’s care is most needed, and
the whole wealth of her gracious na-
ture is expended upon devoted atten-
tiou to the little Clevelands.
