The Law Gives Such Vict0rs Liberal C0mpensati0n--The Amount Depends Upon the Numerical Streugth of Commodore M0ntej0's Fleet. NEw YonK. May 10.--A dispatch to tim Times from Washington ays Rear Admiral Dewey and his men will not have been fnlly rewarded for their vic- tory atManila wheu they receive the thanks of congress and the medals of doted to be struck for them. Under the law they have become entitled to a rich bounty. Unless the numerical importance of the fleet of Admiral Montejo has been overestimated, its losses overstated, the officers and the men of the Asiatic station will be en- titled to share among themselves some- thing like $187,000 bounty money. Section 4635 of the revised statutes of the United States provides: "A bounty shall be paid by the United States for eacll person on board any ship or vessel of war belouging to an enemy at the eoullnencclnent of all engagement which is sunk or otherwise de:,troyed in such engagement by any ship or ves- sel belonging to the United tates or whhqt it r:y be necessary to destroy in consequence of injurie: sustained iu action of $100. if the enemy's vessel was hi an inferior force and of t200 if of equal or superior $orce. to be divided among the officers anti crew in the same manner as prize w.oney; and when the actual number of men on board any INSURGENT FORCES, Reliable Information as to Their Size and Character, KEY WEST, May 9.--The insurgents have now about 8,500 men in the vicin- ity of Gomez's camp--that is, withina radius of thirty miles.

One company is armed with Mauser rittes which were cap- tured from the Soanish. For these rifles there is but a small supply of am- munition. The other compauies are armed with the lo-g Remington which throws a bullet of 43-caliber This is the weapon in common use among the insurgents. They prefer it to the Mauser, in spite of the latter's repeat- ing property. The AvaUable Foree.

The Cubans arc not accustomed, not" havo they the experience and facilities, tO care for complicated repeatinff weapons. Twcnty thousand reachers, a weapon of wonderful effecfivcncss in Cuban hands, are also needed. Goutez says he can raise 10,000 men in Santa Clara province alone. Tlle re- cruits will be mostly ranchers, whose (x,cupatiou has been practically de- slroyed by the Spanish, and who are t{lel" for revenffc. Gomez is a great believer in the effectiveness of cavalry. Ite wants to organize his new army on a basis of 1009 cavalry in Santa Clara province. 300 in Matanzas province, 500 in l[avana province, and 500 in Pinar del Eio. In t'uerto Principe province the insurgents are now all cavalry. Garcia's forces in Santiago l)e Cuba are all infantry. In the reorgauization thcy should be compelled to remain in- fantry. They are drilled as such, and never having had horses, are accus- toined to make large marches on foot. 1 know Gomez wants to unite Garcia's forces with his own, although Gomez did not tell me himself. The old mau never makes his plans knowu when he ean help it. My information, however, comes from the inside. Gomez regards artillery as very important, but the Cubans have none. The Food (2uestlon a Serious O:*o. To my mind this food question pre, seats an almost insurmountable obsta- cle to the scheme to utilize the insur- gents to drive Blanch from the island. even if there were no others. Gomez's army in its present shape is totally in- adequate to undertake such a task. I is scattered over the entire island. This disposition is absolutely necessary in order that the men may not starve. Gomez can not mobilize even such forces as he has nntil food supplies have been sent into the island by the United States, to say nothing of an army of any considerable size mobilized, lIis army would starve even if not crushed by Blanch. Now it will be cxceedingly difficult, not to say possible, to land provisions in large quantities on the coast of Cuba and gct them out into the interior to (;omez. Small amounts of arms and ammunition, and even provisions, may, and are being loaded nnder cover of darkness and carried into the interior by small bands of insurgents, but to supply even it small army in this way is impracticable. It will never, in my opinion, be accomplished successfully. The country along the northern coast being extremely rough and hilly, and while sheltering small surreptitious bands, imposes a natural barrier in the way of concerted action along tllat line. Then. iu a move of auy extent some opposition from Blanch must be reckoned upon. Unless enough tin;ted States trnops are landed with sn''h an cxped it;on there is a strong probability that it would never be of use to the in- surgents. TO FORTIFY AGAINST HUNGER.

Every_ woman cannot be beautiful, but a cheerful face often supplies the deticieney. But no one can be cheerful and bring joy to others unless they have perfect health. For- tunately, science has placed this priceless boon within tbe reach of every woman as the following inddent proves: Mrs. Amanda Robinson, wife of %Villiam Robinson, farmer and stockman, near HowesviHe, Clay County, Ind., is thirty- two years old arid had for several ),ears been in declining health and despondent. For three months she was not only unable to attend to her domestic duties, but too feeble to be up and about. To-day she is in good health and able to attend to her household affairs. She relates her experience as fol- lows: "I was afflicted with female troubles and was in a delicate state of health. I lost my appetite, grew thin and was greatly de- pressed.

The Cool Retort of a Vlt/y Girl to Her Complacent Fiancee 5eti Hizn to Thiaking. Among weddings slated for the near fu- lure is that of a clever young lawyer who has just won for his hride a charming girl to whoe heart he had long laid siege. The law- yer is not without a certain amount of good )pinion regarding ifimself, and particularly pride himself on being rather a favorite anmng girls nf his acquaintance. Nearly a year ago he first sought the hand of the bride to be but she demurred. A few nonths later e met with a second refusal, bul determincd to make one more effort. By this time lhe voumz yeoman had come to r(;gard him with a'good deal of cstcem. This feeling grcw in warmth, and so. when, a week or so ago, he mace more urged his suit, she said the word which made him the hap- t)iest nia in town. "And 'ou will bc mine?" he asked. "''es.' "It seems too good to be true. When shall the wedding take place?" "l--I don't know." "There is no use in putting it off." "No," she answered. "1 thir not." The young lawyer named a day preposter- ously (:lone at hand. and after some hesita- tion his charmer agreed. "1 knew that vou would realize that you v'ould be happierwith me than without one," bc suggested with just a hint of triumph in h s tone. Perhaps the girl concluded that this was as good a time as any to take him down a peg or two, for she replied very coolly: " * " s Yes, 1 do reahzc ]t now. You .co, papa is out of town on l>usiness a good deal, so that mamma, aunty and I re often quite alone. | have thouglt it all over and bare come to the conclusion that it would be ever so much safer to have a man in the hou all the time."

Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla has been curing people right along for nearly 50 years. That's why it is acknowledged to be the sovereign Sarsaparilla. It is the original and the standard. The record of the remedy is without a rival, a record that is written in the blood of thousands, purified by its healing power. "I nursed a lady who waa suffering from blood poisoning and .must have contracted th0 disease from her ; for I had four large sores, or ulcers, break out on my person. I doctored for a long time, both by external application and with various blood medicines ; but in spite of all that I could do, the sores would not heal. At last I purchased eix bottles of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, thinking I would give it a thorough trial. Before the ix bottles had been taken, the ulcers were healed, the skin sound and natural, and my health better than it had been for years. I have been well ever since. I had rather have one bottle of Dr. J. C. Ayer's Sarsapa- rilla than three of ay other kind?---Mrs. A. F. TAYLOR, Englevale, N. Dak. y Get Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Just "tVhat He Wanted. One of the first men to reach San Fran- cisco with a hoard of Klondike gold was an Irishman named Finnegan, who had been very poor before he struck it rich, and who, c msequently, was unfamiliar with many or- d .na 'y uses of a life of luxury. "( i say, yez Mn bring me two dozen eye- s er, " he said, airily, as he took a seat in one )fhe finest restaurants n 'Fr see. The oysters were soon set before him, and Finnegan, looking about him for something to put on them, and hardly knowing what the something should be, spied a bottle of Tobasco and proceeded to season the bi- valves, not wisely, but too well. hnpaling an ()yster on his fork, he thrust it into his mouth, then leaped to his feet with a terrific roar of I)ain and began dancing about and yelling like a madman. "See here!" cried the proprietor, rushing to the tahle, "hoop still, or III put you out!" "P-p-put me out, is it? hi wish yez would put me sit!" yelled Finnegan.

Earnest Words From Mrs. PInkham to Mothors Who Havo Daughtore and a L0tter From Mrs. Duamoro, of Somorvi/ls, Mass, The advent of womanhood is fraught with dangers which even careful " mothers too often ueglect. - One of the dangers to a young woman is belated " menstruation. ';The lily droops on its stem and dies " before its beauty is unfoldcd;" or, she may have en- - tered into the perfection of womanhood -4--4 4-4 with little apparent inconvenience or .' / disorder of health. But suddenly the " ly . menses entire cease. Mother, puberie malady is taking hold of daughter, and quick your consumption may follow l Take in . stunt steps to produce regular men- - Etruation. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com- . pound is certain to assist nature to per- , form her regular duties, procure it at ", once; there are volumes of testimony from grateful mothers who have had their daughters' health restored by its use. If personal udviee is desired, write - quickly toMrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass. l It will be given you without charge, and it will be the advicc of abundant experi- , ence and success. Ilead the following from Mrs. CHARLES DUNMOBE, 102 Fremont St., Winter Hill, Somerville, Mass.: "I was in pain day and night; my doctor didnot seem to help me. I could not seem to find any relief until I took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I had inflammation of the womb, a bearing-down pain, and the whites very badly. The pain was so intense that I could not sleep at night. I took Lydia E. Pinkham's egetable Compound for a few months, and am now all right. Before that I took morphine pills for my pains; tha was a great mistake, for the relief was only momentary and the effect vile. I am so thankful to be relieved of my sufferings, for the pains i had were something terrible." ialaD.Plnlbam'sVegetableC0mp0una; aW0man's Remef0rW0man'slU& [ YOU WILL REALIZE THAT ,THEY LIVE i WELL WHO LIVE CLEANLY," [ IF YOU USE i SAPOLIO I':.__Fe ..*..,.A I iilVI'N ttIV{t/WATOH, .otatoy, to salt: I I W llllUAJI lll.lllll I 21 " | sl ..,lt.illaitllUi,'nl IlOiTilLr, St ianllellcO, ilia I i lIJ i 11 i'- I " "" ""<'"' "'" Ii I11" [till-I tllli lllandWhiskeyHab- II S dt  It 1-1 II11 1 Ill.ll ttsCured.
