*" st oßa in
• ■'■AM.j ; .wy| ata te m ents to
draw upon, cannot take Roosevelt as
the sole and the infallible authority
upon the battle career of his regiment.
From the accounts popularly accept
ed of the charge up San Juan hill one
gleans that the rough riders, lec| by
their colonel, initiated and carried
home*the charge, clinching the victory
by heroic defense of the crest. This is
not the view of the officers and soldiers
outside of the rough riders. The regi
ment did well—for a volunteer regiment
unusually well—but deserves no more
praise than the others. After describing
the march down the road to the San
,7nan river Roosevelt tells in two offi
cial reports and in his magazine narra
tive how the charge originated and the
part the rough riders took in it. In his
magazine story he says: “I sent mes
senger after messenger to try to find
General Sumner or General Wood and
get permission to advance, and was
just about making up my mind that in
the absence of orders I had better
‘march toward the guns,' when Lieu
tenant Colonel Dorst came riding up
through the storm of bullets with the
welcome command ‘to move forward
and support the regulars in the assanlt
in the hills in front. ’ ”
' Roosevelt says that the instant he re
ceived the order his “crowded hour be
gan. ” He formed the regiment in col
nmn of Troops, deployed in skirmishing
order, and took his place with the rear.
Somehow—the reason given is not clear
—he forged his way to the front of his
own regiment. The Ninth cavalry was
in frcnt, the First regulars in the left of
the rough riders. In his narrative the
colonel says, “And these went up ‘Ket
tle' hill with my regiment. ” “Kettle”
hill is the name given to the outlying
spur of the ridge which was first cap
tured. Roosevelt’s first report is not so
clear as his second, and this last states
distinctly: “We charged the blockhouse
and intrenchments on the bill to our
right against a heavy fire. It was taken
in good style, the men of my regiment
thus being the first to capture any for
tified position and to break through the
Spanish lines. ”
This statement is in the report dated
July 20, and from similar verbal ones
probably originated the extravagant
claims made for the rough riders. Get
ting into position, Roosevelt says he
waved his hat and gave the order to
charge the hill in front—that is, “Ket
tle” hill. This is his literal statement
of what followed:
“Out of my sight, over on the right,
Captains Mcßlain and Taylor of the
Ninth made up their minds independ
ently to charge first about this time,
and almost at the same moftient Colo
nels Carroll and Hamilton, who were
oif, I believe, to my left, where we
could neither see them nor hear their
men, gave the order to advance. But of
all this I knew nothing at the time.
The whole line, tired of waiting and
eager to close with the enemy, was
straining to go -forward, and it seems
that different parts slipped the leash at
almost the same moment. The First
cavalry came up just behind and partly
mixed with my regiment and the
Ninth.” Having previously stated in
this narrative that the Ninth and First
went up “Kettle” hill with the rongh
riders, it is clear that Roosevelt claimed
too much in his official report in saying,
“My regiment .thos being the first to
capture any fortified position.”
The real difficulty is td find among
ail the statements just what the rough
riders did as a regiment. There was
gallant work and heavy loss. Roosevelt
carries the narrative to a critical point,
then rambles off into statements of
what the Ninth or Tenth or First or
Third regulars did. One may glean
from his account that the Tenth cavalry
actually led the charge on “Kettle'
hill, but farther on the verbose colonel
says tha't the guidons of some of his
Troops were first planted on the hill. In
the same sentence he says, “On the ex
treme right of the hill, at the opposite
end from where we struck it. Captains
Taylor and Mcßlain and their men of
the Ninth were first up. ” Now the
right of the hill was where the house,
miscalled a blockhouse by Roosevelt,
stood. It was not a blockhonse. There
were some trenches, but the Spaniards
made no defense. The loss sustained by
the charging columns was dne to firing
from the main ridge. “Kettle” hill was
not in the Spanish line of defense, but
was an outwork, and its capture did
not constitute a break in the enemy’s
line, as claimed by Roosevelt.
The capture of “Kettle” hill was gal
lantly done, and it was timely, for it
proved a vantage ground for attack on
the real Spanish positions beyond it.
But the rough riders seem to have had
no specially brilliant part in it. The
regiment's place was on the right of
the second line. Roosevelt and the two
companies with him went up the left
or southeast knee of the bill; hence
marched obliquely across the field. It
was said in camp that Rooseveit iost his

bearings, and, mistaking San Juan fort
for the red house on “Kettle” bill,
practically abandoned his regiment.
For thisreason he deals in generalities
in his report, and really accounts for
but four of his eight troops, two only
of these being with him “personally.”
The most important events of the day
for the cavalry followed the capture of
“Kettle” hill. Roosevelt’s first report
says: “When the men got their wind,
we charged again and carried the sec
ond line of intrenchments with a rush.
Swinging to the left, we then drove the
Spaniards over the brow of the chain of
hills fronting on Santiago.” Bearinu in
mind that this is the official report nf
the rough riders by their commait iiiiL
officer, it must lie taken as niuami).:
that the rough riders “carried ? s c
ond line” and “drove the SpuiiLmb
over the brow. ” In his second report
Colonel Roosevelt says that after Foil
San Juan was taken a large force was
assembled on “Kettle” hill, not only of
his own regiment,, hut of the Ninth and
portions of other regiments. This U
well known. He then states: “We then
charged forward under a heavy tire
across the valley against the Spanish in
trenchments on the hill in reaT of San
Juan hill. This we also took, capturing
several prisoners. ” He received orders
to halt and hold the crest. At the time
he had fragments of the Sixth cavalry
and an occasional infantryman under
him, 300 or 400 men all told. The rough
riders numbered 542 and lost 87 in all,
making about 475 on duty. But there
were other troopers than the Sixth and
rough riders with Roosevelt at the time.
Either Roosevelt is confused as to the
order of events <fr he and his rough rid
ers had nothing to do with the capture
of the second ridge, or San Juan hill.
He places his rush forward after Par
ker’B Gatlings opened on Fort San Juan.
At that hour the cavalry advance was
rushing along the swale toward the sec
ond ridge. Roosevelt says that when he
saw’ the Spaniards abandon Fort San
Juan he called upon his men to charge
the hills in front, that is, north San
Juan ridge. His details of what follow
ed, coming from the colonel of the regi
ment reported to have done wonders
that day, need no comment. Roosevelt
jumped a fence and went on alone,
thinking the men would follow, but at
the end of 100 yards found he had bnt 1
five rough riders with him. He told
them to stay where they were while he
went back and brought up the rest of
the “brigade. ”( ?) After a spirited col
loquy the dilatory rough riders begged
to be led forward, but Roosevelt want
ed the “otht regiments to come, too,”
so he ran ba<% to General Sumner, com-
A ROUGH HIDKR.
manding the division, and asked if he
(Roosevelt) might make the charge.
According to Roosevelt, Sumner told
him to go ahead, and he (Sumner)
wonld see that the men followed. Just
what men he meant is uncertain. Sum
ner had already ordered the First caval
ry and battalion of the Third to re
main on “Kettle” hill. The Sixth was
moving np the hill in touch with the
infantry, and a battalion of the Third
was climbing the slope in front of “Ket
tle” hill while Roosevelt was going
throngh these motions evidently to get
his own regiment into shape.
Roosevelt finally got to the crest of
San Juan ridge. Meanwhile the Third
cavalry had formed a line in the V
shaped ridge or salient, subsequently
called Rough Ridqrs’ hill, bnt which
they did not capture. Roosevelt says he
had a mixed force and about SO of his
own men. This corresponds to the state
ment of Captain Morton of the Third
cavalry Morton became senior on the
front line by the wounding of Major
Wessells and went along the crA:t from
right to left to find out his strength.
He located 40 to 45 rough riders at 8 :30
p. nd. A soldier of the regiment who
had been on duty at headquarters went
in search of the command that night
and reached its colonel and all there
was of regiment about 10 o’clock.
He said that what surprised him most
was that there were “30 few rough
riders there. ” In his mind the rough
riders should muster 500. barring the
Now tbe rough riders lost on July 1
and 2, 87 killed and wounded. They did
their share of facing Mausers and earned
a share in the gloty. The regulars ac
cord them this willingly. Bat the true
story of the rough riders is yet to be
written. Their colonel has made three
attempts at it, but he apparently saw
little of what the regiment was doing
as a regiment on July 1. Yet he
was colonel over 500 men as good and
brave as ever stood behind a gun.

Washington, June 7.—Consul
Muhin, of Reichenberg, Austria,
under date of April 21st, quotes
an account in n local newspaper
of a process for making artificial
cotton from the wood of fir trees, j
It appears that the wood is re

placed in a wishing apparatus
and exposed to the influence of

then subjected to a strong prep
aration of sodium lye and are
heated under great pressure for
thirty-six hours. The wood is now
chang d to pure cellulose, and to
give this a greater resisting power
some castor oil, caffein and gel
atin are added. The substance is
then put into an apparatus and
made into threads which are
reeled. The article concludes:
“Artificial cotton can be pro
duced so cheaply that the genuine
article can hardly compete with it
and one cannot say that it is a
sham, for it is composed exactly
as the natural cotton, of pure cel
Mr. Muhin adds :
“In a country such as this,
where forests of fir trees abound
and are made perenial by constant
planting as the large trees are cut
down, and where all the cotton
used in the numerous factories
must be brought from India and
the United States, such a device
should be profitable.”

A. 3. Clements, of the firm of Clem

Mr. Clements was seen by a Commer

company’s Roundlap hale press, which
he has been operating at hts gin the

000 bales on his Roundlap bale press,
and the cotton was all sold at the press
at Memphis prices. Mr. Clements says
that a Roundlap hale from the Ameri

$2.50 to $3.00 more than from the old
press. In fact, a farmer a few months
ago, made a test of the matter, bring

has satisfied him of the merits of the

Turning to the material side of
this locality’s natural wealth, we
find that in addition to the pro
ductive soil, magnificent climate
and pure water, our forests con
tain nearly one hundred varieties
of wood, and a great variety of
minerals. Traces of gold and si I- ,
ver have been found, while zinc,
lend, copper, iron, granite and
marble are mined. Hills, valleys, ,
rivers and forests all conspire to >
make tfie scenery lovely and rest

in Arkausas are such as to inspire
man with noble aspirations, pure
thoughts and gentle actions. He ;
is near nature’s heart; everything 1
blends in perfect harmony, and 1
the romantic scenery seems to J
blossom with joy.
The field of opportunity is as j
wide here as in any other country, '
and wider for the poor man who '•
is not afraid to work. If you
want to raise hogs, sheep or cattle
get a small farm near the moun- 1
tains and turn them loose. If •
you want to.raise turkeys, geese or
chickens, you can do so with 1
scarcely an effort.
Onr agricultural resources are
beyond calculation, although de
velopment is in its infancy. This
is in the no distant future des
tined to become one of the richest
portions of the United States.
The conditions of Arkansas are
partioularly/avorable for the pros
perity of the human race. Al
though we have a few drawbacks,
they are counterbalanced by great
advantages which a bounteous
nature has bestowed upon us.
Among our farming products
cotton is of most importance.
The average yield is from 800 to
J6OO pounds per acre. Corn is
also raised to a great extent.
Other crops are wheat, oats, po
tatoes, grapes and strawberries,
together with a large amount of
peaches and apples. Crops are
looking well, taking into consider
ation the amount of raiu and hail j
storms we have had this spring.

In this tremendous rush of

youth inside schoolrooms and not
enough in the practical work of
“The years from 15 to 21 are
immensely valuable, for they are
years of keen observation, individ
uality and confidence. In many
cases, quite too many, they are
spent in cramming the mind with
knowledge that is not likely to
help a young man in the work he
is best fitted for.
“How many young men with
college educations are standing
about waiting for something that
will never come because the work
that lies nearest at hand is not to
their liking? Somehow or other
our schools teach young people
how to talk, but do not teuch
them how to live. People need
little, but want much.
“Sons of farmers are forsaking
the fields because the cities are
more attractive to them. Slowly,
but surely, there is growing up a
stronger wall of caste, with good,
honest labor on one side aud friv
olous gentility un the other.”

Build Up The Country.
Thqro is much unnecessary talk
about building up cities unit
As a rule, such communities
will tuke care of themselves.
They will go forward or backward, ,
or stand still, under their natural
laws of growth or decay, and |
when it is possible for human ef
fort to advance their interests it
is always Hafo to rely upon the
active work of those who expect
to be personally beuefitted by the
progress of the municipalities
where they reside.
We need more talk about the
upbuilding and the development
of the country districts—the rural
communities. The present steady
movemont of the farms and their
children to the town is one of the
worst signs of the times. It will
ruin the country. The best way
to build up a town and make it
prosperous is to develop, the farm
ing district around it.
The government eucourages
manufacturing, but it does very
little for agriculture, beyoud giv
ing the farmers advice and garden
seed. Millions of dollar# are ex
pended in giving cities and towns
satisfactory mail facilities, but
the farmers are not much better
off iu this respect thau tbeir
grandfathers were a century ago.
In Sydney, New South Wales,
the street car lines are owned by I

going to cheep lodging houses.
