During  his speech several short poems appropriate to the occasion weie recited.

Cervera'a Fleet Destroyed.  On the Fourth of July Cervera's  fleet made a desperate effort to escape  from the Santiago harbor, but was  sighted by Sampson's and Schlej-'s  fleets and totally demolished. Three  hundred and fifty Spniards were killed  and Admiral Cervera, about 70 other  oflicers, and 1,600 men were taken  prisoners. The American victory is  complete, their vessels being practically untouched, and only one man  was killed.  Church Newa.  Commencing tomorrow divine service will be held by Rev.

Upon the return of the boat in the  afternoon the tug of war, putting the  shot and drilling contest took place.  The tug of war between the Moyie  City boys and the bridge gang was of,  short duration and was easily won by  the latter team.  The first prize for putting the -hot  waB won by A. T.

A new tunnel  is being driven and work in the lower  tunnel is being vigorously, pushed.  The new bunk house and office are  nearly completed, and when finished  the working force at the mine will be  greatly increased.  :  A temporary survey for the,1 wagon  road to the mine has been  made, and  I: ���'   ��� ��� l   ' ''  '  the suppoiition is that work will be  commenced'On it at once. It is also  rumored that the contract for furnishing lumber for the proposed concentrator has been lee. , If such is the  case it will be but a short while until  the St. Eugene will be .worked on a  large and systematic scale, and Moyie  City will be given the benefit of a  good sized and steady payroll,.

Ho noble is, its appearance, so inn- j  jostle, its pent, that, once behold it can never  , 'ho forgotten   Shining rivers, waving ileitis  of golden colored cereals, woods and moun- [  tains, togblkcr with a live   volcano in tho [  background,   complete  tho   picture.      Its  , trunk is  of  such   grrat girth and dimen-  tions so vnft   that a score of   men joining  their outstretched hands cannot completely  enibruce it.     Botanical   data  aro.  not  forthcoming for   tho determination of   its  ago, for lt is doomed  too  sacred a subject  to allow of o, proper  export  examination  being mado.  Perhaps tho greatest marvel, though, is  that it is in reality, two trees blended, as it  wore, and welded into one, and, still moro  curious to relate, two trees of tho saino  genus, but of different species Both havo  'grown together and form an indivisible  common trunk of enormous s"n.*a. 'The distinctive features of each species appear unmistakably in tlie branches, and reveal tho  yery romarkablo difference in tho color of  ��ho foliago. At a littlo distance off this  ���presents a truly strange spectaclo. Tha  loaves of ono aro of a lively and beautiful  green, whilo those of tho other aro of a  jnueh deeper shade on the upper surface  and palo on tho under. Tho one has long,  ���slender, drooping branches adornod with  .elegant foliago, refreshing to look upon.  From'its majestic appearance this kind  used to bo planted in lront of' tho palaces  ,Of tho native rulers. Its larger branches  put forth fascicles of roots, which, instead  of descending, as is common among plants,  to tho earth, havo crept along' tlio old  trunk, wrapped their strong arms around  it and ultimately blended themselves with  it. Tho other species, less graceful por-  baps ln growth, has shorter, moro rugged  and lustier branches, and by theso.nnd the  color of its leaves is readily distinguished  from Its twin relativo. Below, both bo-  L'tuiic, so to say, fused into ono mass, mingling sap and fiber together. Tho trees  both belong to tho natural family nio-  r-neeai, n rave which has given birth to sov-  ,eral othor giants of tho vegetable world.  They aro of tho genus ficus.  On arriving nt  tlio  buso  or entrance of  tho troo tho visitor today who has como to  inspect its wonders is met by tho priests in  ichargo, who proceed to porform forthwith  some slight religious ceremony, at the termination of which ar.   invitation  is glvon  to ascend its  aged sides, which is done hy  means of  tho  countless   lateral branches  and tho aid of   peasants, who nro nt hand  Jo render assistance to all who require it in  the journey aloft.   On arriving at tho horticultural plateau or tableland at the sum- 1  mit words fail to at all adequately describe  tho lovely sccno which meets tho eye in all  directions.    It la  literally clothed all over  with elegant llowcrs and parasitic plants,  i  Orchids  in  a  multitude  of  species have j  prowled   up  many a withered branch and ;  flung down   gorgeous   flmvors, roots  and '  leaves   in   ono waving   mass   of   fantastic j  fragranco  and   floral   cleganco      Lichens ,  scaled   up  tho wooden   clilTs   and ferns of I  nmny species grow up from the dark hoi- ,  lows underneath, while  lorantlis suck the  vital juices  and   scrnphul.-irinds cover the !  branches with   a   \oi-itablo   patchwork   of  many brilliant hues \  This tree, in fact, may with truth bo '  termed a garden in the uir, a mundane  paradise.

Tho   master of  robes was  foolishly alraid   to mention tho  subject to Napoleon and continued to give  unsatisfactory rep-lies   to iho insistent tailor, who became pre-ising'in  his demands.  , At length, becoming   exasperated, the tailor took   the   bold step of .complaining to  Napoleon, who learned with astoniMlimont  and  anger that he o'wed his tailor-**,(i,000.  lie paid lhe bill and at the same timo dismissed tho frightened Conito do Kemusat.

However that may bo, I  could not, do otherwise, says .John ,S. Durham in The Atlantic,'than remark tho face  that the porter deferentially held,out a silver tray to receive trip chair checks, from  passengers. It was the nicest act of- discrimination I had over observed in tho  workday world. I was on a tiai.i between  New Yoi k and Boston. The porter was  only an agent in a business tran."aution of  "a corporation, but tho agent f.t the station  who had thrown out, the check with businesslike deftness and tho conductor who  had briskly exchanged that check for another wero al.io on'.v agents in tho transaction. In thoir daily intercourse with tho  public they must, make friends, and, with  ��� the faithful performance of their duties,  thoy very properly look forward to advancement in their chosen carcor.  Tlie silver salver,' iowovcr, marks tho  porter. It is the badge of nil his tribo. Ho  may bo an educated man, as ambitious and  as intolligont as the baggage agent or 113  the conductor, but ho must keep his place,  and that place is nt the bottom, nnd his  color fixes it. IIo is nn American citizen,  iii id theoretically ho enjoys innlienablo  rights, among which aro liberty and the  pursuit of happiness, but in his ease-liberty  and tho pursuit of happiness havo their  limits fixed rigidly by a sentiment���tho  sentiment of oiganii-ed labor iu the United  States. Tho tray is tho budge of deference.  He philosophically keeps himself iu hia  placo und,makes the best of it.  ' The  Etiquette of tlio I>esori. ^  Social  etiquefcto  among tho Arabs is a  factor in life , to be considered  seriously if  you wish to live among them'without, friction.   -Its obligations   aro   not to bo completely mastered in a few months.    Sometimes when I havo   had   companions with  mo  presumably thoroughly nu   fait with  oil things JMohammotbin. tho   harmony of  tho occasion Has been seriously cndimgeied  by somo thougl'.tl.es.iiiess  or  ignorance on  their partiwhich to tho   Moslem could appear only ns a contemptuous want of con-  Gidcratinn.    Thus," no greater insult could  be offered to nn   Arab   than n friendly inquiry lis to tho welfaro of his wife, to us a  natural civility, but to him n gross impertinence bitterly resented.   On one occasion  1 nearly made  a similar   blunder.    I was  invited by a neighboring sheik to go over  to seo him, nnd was on the point of riding  up to bis tent door nnd dismounting there.  Fortunately,    however,   1    recollected    in  time that etiquette demanded that L should  halt 50 yards oil"  and call in a loud voice,  "Havo 1  your   permission   to approach:'''"  This gives timo to bundle off anyof  thoii  women kind who  may bo  about, preparatory to the admission of a stranger.    It ia  curious also to r.otieo  that in spile of  tho  real affection  oxisting between fulher and  son, tho sense of respect dominates all other feolings, and tho sons will   novcr sit at  meat wilh their father in tho presence of.a  guest, but will wait upon   both   until tho  father/rising, allowsthom thu opportunity  of breaking bread with their visitor.  Provided, however, thnt you recognize  their social customs, my exporionco has  proved the Bedouin tj bo genuine, warm  hearted friends, and thoy really become  greatly attached to those whom thoy know  and who know them.���"My IVudouin  Friends," by K.

I did my bcsl, speaking to Margaret first,  because sho was stronger Than her mother;  but I doubt if cither 'could'havo suffered  greater pain at the most brutally si d icn  nnnotmc'inonu. Mrs. Holliday was utterly prostrated; and I believe that nothing  but her another's diro need saved Margaret.  1'have already confessed   my  prejudice  against Capr. Marshall, ancl it is there "ore  ; with the'greater   pleasure   that  I  admit  I him ro have proven   himself a serviceable  I man in   such   an  emergency.    If it. is in  j him to face the perils of  battle   wi'th   an  I equal eninmess, he must be a good soldier.  j     It was under hla direction   thnt   wcc at  i last began to .mako  an   investigation of  i the   tragedy.

Of   ihat  fact tl-eri could be no doubt.   fc>3x> (old us  timely, a man whom he. did not Know,  walking hurriedly away from the hou--o.  '���j-'hli; pur.-.on tho butler had seen froni a  window. He attached no import a ii'S to  the circumstance at> tho time; indeed, ho  did ncit ment ion it uiilil I had sharply  questioned him. This was ' just before  Kelly arrived:  My first vayue surpicicns had   cc'ntsrcQ  npon HarJey.    They wero   founded   upen j  bis de^neanor at the time   when ho and I  wero together in ihe Long Hooia immediately after   iny   di'-"co\ory   of   tlie crime.  Certainly   thero could   not   have   boon a  jjiojv perfect phturo of guilty terror than  ho   furnished   then.    His  horror   of   tho '  body,   ������.nd   especially   cf   t ho, blood; 'his !  { eagerness to   oscapo   from tho room; his   |  [���dread of questioning, were all' suggo.-tlve. ,  i     Jint [ could not at first supply a motive j  I for him.    That camo   lale'r,   when,   ,wiih 1  1 Kelly's   assistance,    wo   e.faminod   moro  closely my unclo's desk.    Our iirst exam-"  inaiion of ir had iiut one object; we wished to trace (lie course of the bullet.    This  was not difficult.1   After  passing entirely  through my unclo's body it, had penetrated the back ef lhe dc.sk.ii_d tlio wall also.  I was .".mazed at   tho power of the projectile; but Capt. Marshall was not.    It sep-  jKirtcd his theory that,  tho new 'explosive  for'small arms figured -in   ibis  case.    Ho  was an expert   upon this   point;   indeed,  he was at that   time   conducting   experiments with a rifle intended for tho army.  This   dreadful   weapon   when   fired on'a  'level from the height" of a man's   shoulder would send a bullet nearly two   miles,  and at two thousand yards would drive it  through-tho bodies of seven mon.  Ho stated these facts to me with professional calmness; lie even olTereiT to exhibit them to me if I .would go some day  to his laboratory and proving ground,  iivh'ich was on the outskirts of West Point.  If:.-? knowledge c-* tho subject was undoubtedly,groat, and the more I thought  upon it tho more important, in my mind,  became the coincidence 01 iho presence of  such a man in that bouse at a time when  a mysterious and terribly powciful  weapon had been murderously employed.  My interest became horror when I  found soon afterward that this circumstance impressed itself moro strongly than  any other * upon the mind of Bernard  Kelly. Through Margaret he' learned  from Mrs. Holliday that.she hnd left "Marshall alone in,t he parlor for fully ten minutes. He seemed not to have moved when  she returned, but he had had time,-,, to go  to the Long Room and return.  Margaret told me of Kelly's questions,  despite his warning to Iier tb keep abso-  ' lute silerco about them. Fhe Said,  frankly, that tliey indicated to her his  suspicion that Marshall 'had committed  tho crinie.0 . " '  "That is not'to h>t thought of," said  tiie girl. "He, of all others, had most  reason to wish my father to' live."  Perhaps; yet it is true iliat a living  father  may   changa   h-is   mind   about a  hen?

He made it   his   parade   ground   in   bad  ���weather; and there, he  used to   march up j  and down, attended by many   a   soldier's  wrailh, summoned hy his eld commander  from a grave in lire south.    The.   furnish-,  ings of tho room were   ns   pceuihCr as iii 1  dimensions. At one end was the general's |  desk where ho  wrote   hls^ lotfers.    Thvre'j  was also an easy   cliair   tttv  reading, and j  somo   small,   revolving   bookcases.    Tho!  other end bad somewhat   tho   appearance '  of a   conservatory;   and   midway   was   a  couch with cushions, a  work basket with 1  colored wools, and   othor indications that ',  Margarot often kept her   father   company j  in tho Long Kcom. j  I found her thero seated. -She lay on <  tho couch fast, asleep. 1 stood hy her side, .  looking down upon licr beautiful face, ���  and she did not know. The general, at  his'desk, had not moved at tho sound of  niv coming. Tlio somnolency of the sum- ,  nier's day seemed to hold them both.  1 put my band on   Margaret's   forehead  and'waked her.    .She   did   not   start, but'  only opened her brown eyes   and   looked !  up at mo with   instant  recognition.    IJe. '<  fore either of us spoke, Mrs. Holliday ap, !  pi-area in a doorway, and said:  "Capt. Marshall is here. "  I was looking straight   into Margaret's  faco when the man's  name was mentioned: and somehow   I   got   iho  impression  that there might, be, hope  for I'rcble   yet.  The girl followed hy mother to another  part of.tho house,    ai.      I   walked   to tho  general's, side.    Ho   was' 'bout   over   his  closk, and his head .rested''upon his hands.  I spoke, and lie did not'move.    I laid my  hand upon his shoulder.    My   touch   disturbed the equipoise of.his body.  It slowly,-heavily slid from tlie chair, and fell to  the floor where 'it lay'faco upward.  A single glance at that faco showed me  that Gen. Holliday was dead. I  ' I am not otic of those who   tremble   in  tho .'presence   of   death.    The. dominant |  sentiment of my heart, as 1 knelt ��� beside \  this lifeless form, was   poignant grief for  tho loss of ono  whom   I   had   loved   and;  reverenced many years. ���   ���:.  But when, after a moment., I saw blood |  upon him and upon  tho   floor , where  he. j  had fallen, and "much   more   beneath the j  desk,    I   was 'alarmed   anrl, cried .out; for  help.    Stephen Ilanie'y,   my uncle's but- ,  *<,*:���  ran im<��� the room by   a  door close to  Where I stood   beside lhe corpse.    He was  j ho only person who heard1 my cry.    It is:  notable about tho Long.Kooin that sound ,  not readily pass .out'of it.    Tlio but- ,  so terror-stricken   as   <o be of no <  ie:    He. d;  IIOI  jer was  use to 1  The. sip;I  not touch' tho bod v.  th  1 blood, w  yy ��� t,i  hie  l-.a-  'i had starlled  c   unmanned  that she had come to the Lo-ng Ucor  inimediately after lunch.eon. Her faf!  had come iu. very sima afterward-, and  had gone at once to his desk. She mtret  have', fallen asleep immediately; and  she remembered nothing more till ihe.  moment when sho saw mo standing be- (  side her. 1  "This   is   beyond belief,"  said Hilton.  "It   is   urtoriy ' incredible that Margaret  siio'c'-ld not have been awakened by the ro- '  port of the weapon ;   but   iG is even in-nv ,  preposterous to suppose that any   human  creature would   have   tho   hardihood   to  commit   this crime right before tho girl's j  face, even though she slept.-'' '  "Ho might havo ' felt sure that sho i  wouldn't wake." said Marshall; and I '  noticed thai his cold gray eyes scanned,'  Hilton's l'aco narrowly. j  The suggestion   seemed   to   escapo   tho :  physician, but ir, camo like a blow to mo. ;  Margaret's sudden and  deep sloop  might-  furnish the explanation of the entire mys- ���  tery.    Hilton sat next to  Mnrrnret at the '  table.    Hemigli.   liave drugged her food. !  Tins necessitated the supposition that  be :  knew that she and her   father   would  be t  together in tho Long Room after luncheon.  It was not impossible ihat-he should ha ,"e i  known it.   But, if that seemed an obstacle j  to the theory, another .-.nd   more   reason- j  ' able  ono   suggested   itself   immediately. '  Margaret's sleep might havo been natural  in the beginning.     Then some one might '  have come noiselessly to her side, as I had |  ' done, without dbturbing   her   slumbers.  He might have caused iier to inhale some  , soporiferous  - vapor   which   would   have  i dulled' her   senses   while, the murderous  j deed was done, passing  away  afterwards  ! without leaving a trace upon her.  I     Wo   three   were    silent     while     theso  ! -thoughts were passing through my brain.  1 Hilton sat, in a chair and    his   head   had  fallen upon hi i  hands.    H^foro him stood  Marshall, slern and soldierly.    1 stood  at  ; ono side obsoning them.  j     If Margaret was   drugged,   I   thought.  j who but this doctor couid have   dono   it?  ' Is there some secret passion in the man's  .heart' for   Margaret.'?,   Did she favor him,  and did he hope to win her when his rival  should lack, a .father's influence, .in   his  favor?   Then there-was tho-will; aud Hilton knew its contents.  ������'   "They make powders nowadays, "   said  Marshall, "which .develop   extraordinary1  energy but very little noise.    I   think   it  possible that a weapon so   charged might-  have   been fired in   this cnil of lhe   room  and not have been hoard by anybody hut  the murderer.    Ib   is ��� extremely   improbable, but we must, not forget tho fact.    A j  shot w-ij certainly .fired in 1 his room.    It \  must'bo-explained   somehow.'-' j  "WhereWere you?" Tasked, with unin- i  tontiei-al rudeness. Ho turned, upon me. j  v.'ir'n a .sort of military wheel. ,  "I was in the parlor with'Mrs. Holli- j  day,''he said. "And yemr question ro '  minds mo of one that, may be. pertinent.  Dr. Hilton, from your examination of tho  body, should you think, it likely .flint  Gen".

Then came that other discovery relative  to tho desk, and it threw all my   theories  info confusion.  I     On tho forenoon of that day I had   seen  j a pile of   bank   notes   in  a drawer of tho  1 desk, and tho   topmost   had   been   01 tho  denomination   of   ouo    hundred   dollars.  ' How   much   was   in   tho  pile  I did not  ! know.    My uncle   had   e'osed the drawer  j immediately.    I had seen  only one of tho  bills.    When wo   searched Ihe. desk under  Kelly's direction   thero   was no money at  1 all in it.    My uncle had   only   a few dol-  . lars and a gold watch in his pockets.  I     If robbery was the motive, whom should  j wo suspect? 1 thought of Hanley inst.-mt- j  ' ly; and, in private, I   described   to Kelly ,  I the   demeanor   of   iho   111.111   at   the iir.>o ,  I alarm,    Tho   detective   received my com- '  1 munieation without any comment   what- ,  j ever.

He, spoke  as   if   ho already had his  ha ml   on   the   murderer's    shoulder.      I  begged him to name tho guilty man, but  j his only reply was   that   he  would be at  rSunnysidc early, the next 'morning.,  I     The night in that house was one which  I I shudder to remember.     Suspicion   was  j rampant.    In   my,   own   mind    Hanley, J  ] Marshall.and Hilton   figured   in   turn as  j the murderer.    Then   the  absence of tho  i weapon suggested   tin "mysterious stran-  I ger  whom   the   butler   had    seen.     My  i thoughts were in a whirl, and   their con-  j fusion became -more so as I ])ercoive.d^that  j both Hilton and .Marshall   were   coming  ! more and   moro   closely   iuto   conferonco  j ami conspicuously shunning inc..  !     1 heard -one of the   servants   pay. to an-  i other that   Capt.

Another servant, in,  I r.'S'ponso.to my questioning   said   that ho  ; had seen .Hanley   enter'   tho   Long "Room  ! from, the dining room which   adjoined if'.  pie, and have convicted, in my own  mind, half a dozen others in town. I  convicted you, wlion I saw you with Detective Kelly. But of course when I stand  "hero face to faci with you, I know it  eau't be true. Yet you liave some part-in  the shameful secret,'as you have-confessed  tome. 'What is it? Don't keep mcin  suspense!1' '  A sickly smile distorted Preble's handsome face.  '"[ am a detective   in   the   pay   of   the  New York police department,"   ho   said.  "'"'I'ln hole professionally."   ,  He shuddered at tho thought.  ' -'It's a little different from the old  times," h_ continued. "I'm heartily  ashamed of it, my boy, but it can't be  j helped now. There's' little to choose bc-  I tween detective and crimin-il in my  j opinion. The criminal inflicts an injury  I on society, and tlio detective inflictc an  I injury on tlio criminal; and the be.->l  ! defence that the detective can make is the  ' old school-boy claim: 'The other fellow,  began it.' Why can't wo all let one another alone?"  1 was leaning upon tho railing of tho  verandah aud laughin~ weakly, almost  hysterically. To see Preble out of that  scrape was too much happiness for me.  T_,ittlc I cared about his profession. I  thought it as good0 as most of hers and  much better than tho law. But I knew  ���him well enough to be sure that whatever profession ho had chosen would im-  mediately seem to him the most disgraceful and unbecoming that mon*s needs had  ���evor produced.  "We, wired to New York for a man,"  said Kelly, "and Byrnes sent up Mr.  Preble. Between us I guess wc* can sift  this matter down. Would you like lo  look at the body, Mr. Preble?"  "Not yet," he. replied. "JLel us have a  look at the room."  Capt. Marshall joined us while we were  busy   there.    I'rcble was   examining'  tho  bullet hole in tho desk and   in   the wall-. I  He enlarged the latter untU ho  could seo J  through it, arid then   ho   looked out, following with his eye as nearly  as possible j  tlie direction of the ball. !  "There's a chance that wo can find it." ,  ho said, and led tho way to the grounds i  ct the rear of the house. I  j Pifty yards back wo came to n, large '  i tree, and in its rough bark, near tlio!  ground, after most careful searching, !  Preblo found a bullet" hole. Five minutes '  later he held in his hand the leaden mis- j  silo that had killed Gen.  Holliday.  "Capt. Marshall," he said, "you, as an ,  export, will be able   to   tell   us what .-ort  of weapon carries such a bullet."' 1  " Y'ou, know already. " replied th-.i cap- :  tain, with a sort of ' gasp. "I can .-co'  that in your face/ It is the bullet which]  tho riflo I am testing carries. There is j.  no.other liko.it."    ' ,, ��� j  '"I looked anxiously at Prcblcs and saw,  to'my surprise, that he was not regarding Marshall, lie was looking over tho  captain's head.  I turned and saw n -mini running  through tho grounds. Ho. was bent  double, and scorned to fancy himself to  be shielded by some low shrubbery. I  recognized Hanley, the butler.   , .  "You'd bettor go-after him, Kelly,"  said 'Preble, and Kelly obeyed, exhibiting  ���a surprising swiftness of- foot.  Ho  overtook   Hrfnley    before    ho   had  reached the road which bounds the estate  upon.the  south ; and-in a   few   minutes,  the'trembling servant stood before Pre!)!e.
