Some, had llieir legs torn oit by fragments of shells. Others were mutilated in every conceivable way. "As I knew the crews of the ft ret two ships wrecked had not been visited by any of our vessels, 1 ran down lo them. 1 found the Gloucester with Admiral Cer- vera and a mimlKT of his .officers aboard, and also a large number of wounded, .some in a frightfully mangled condition. Many prisoners had been killed on shore by the fire oi the Cubans. Tlie Harvard came and 1 Gupta in Coftxin to go in and taku off the crews of the- Infanla Maria Teresa and the Almirantc Oip.ieu.lo, and by midnight the Harvard had prisoners aboard, a jjreat uinnber of them being wounded. Tlie bottom.-; of the boats hold two of three inches of blood. In many dead men were lying in I he blood, l-'ivc poor chaps died on the way Lo the ship. They were after- ward buried with military honors from llir Unva. Some examples of heroism, or, more properly, devotion lo discipline and ilnty, could never be surpassed. One man tm the lohi Vix'.-aya hsul his left arm shot on just below the .shoulder. The fmg- ruculs were hanging by a small piece of hkiii. lint he climbed unassisted over the Pule and saluted as if on a visit of cere- mony.

Cristobal Colon wouli steam faster than the Itrooklyn. "Tlic spectacle of two torpedo boat dc stroycrs, pape.r fihells at beat, dcHberatclj steaming out in broad daylight in the fa of the fire of a battle ship can be doscrib ed in one way: It was Spanish, and was ordered by Blanco. The same mi said of the entire movement. In' con trast to this Spanish fashion was the eoo deliberate Yankee work. The America was without sentiment appai ently. The ships went at their Spams! opponents and literally tore thorn pieces. But the moment tho Spanish fl r came down it must have been evtden that the sentiment was njnong the'Amc ieans, not among the Spaniards. I too.
