He said, that the lad was Herbert Horner, eight years old, and that his father was a member of the Ninth Cavalry and had been killed at the battle of El Caney. The little fellow, who was attired in garraents much too large for him, cast-off clothes of soldiers chiefly, said that until two years ago he had lived with his parents in Tampa. His mother had then come to this city to go to a hospital. Since then he had not seen her. A few months ago his father enlisted in the Ninth Cavalry at Fernandina, Fla. The boy accompanied that regiment to Santiago, but when his father was killed, CapL West, of Troop A, Sixth Cavalry, took the little chap as a regimental mascott, and he re- raained with the Sixth until Treoj} A reached Camii Wikoff. The Gerry Society will endeavor to find the boy's mother. When she left home, he said she was accom pauied by a younger brother and Aister. Magistrate Flaramer, sit- ;r .TpfPprson Market Police Court this morning, committed the boy to the care of the society pend ing the resolutiou.s. —N. Y. Commercial Advertiser. fl Woman as Assistant Surgeon. ■Washington, Aug. s9.—Today for the fir.st time in the history of the American army ^ wn-, pointed as a memofc^ ‘ -m*.-' ,- staff. Dr. Anita Newcomb McGee, wife of Prof. W. J. McGee, of this city, and daughter of Prof Simmons Newcomb, formerly of the Naval Observatory, was regularly sworn in as an acting assistant surgeon. This, according to Secretary Al ger’s general order, would entitle her to the uniform of a second lieu tenant without designation of rank. It is not likely, however, that Dr. McGee will avail herself of this privilege. The appointment, while a novelty from a technical stand point, is not the begining of Dr. McGee's service with the War De partment. Throughout the war she has been in charge of the selection of the women nurses and of the sev en hundred or more now in the Held most have passed muster at her hands. Dr. McGee has regularly practic ed her profession in Washington for some years and is well known in medical circles throughout this country, having contributed several papers to the American Association for the Advancement of Science and to other scientilic organizations. ft GREW R&^GUEHJin t«v « ^ Get Trades.

One of the sights in the harbor of Santiag.o }^e Cuba is the remains of the old St. Paul, one of the ships of the Spanish Armada that Philip II sent to England in 1588, being one of the very few of that famous flotilla that escaped destruction at the time. What a career this 0I4 ship has been through! She had breasted the waves of many seas and wichstobd the storms in many waters for nearly three centuries, when she w.ay burned to the water’s edge here in Santiago harbor a fe'.. years ago and sunk whi^re her re mains now lie covered with barna cles, an emblem of the nation whose flag she once so proudly bore. Dur ing the last years-of her career afloat she was used as a transport for troops from Europe and as a Spanish guard ahip in these seas by the local government. She can only be seen at low water. Only the ribs and stanchions are held together by the stout keel timbers apd low er sheathing.
