Uncie Sam's benevolence was also cheerfully extended to tbe wound- ed Filipinos. The days of the "water cure" and "ungodly butchery" had not yet come. Young Velasquez died soon after day- break. He had been dying for days.

It was to him that she clung in her despair. He had been her captor, and yet it bad been he who stood forth In his might to defend her and the loved one who was dead. At nightfall the dead buried in that faroff wilderness, their humble graves marked and recorded before the time when the government could come to give other graves in other lands to these who bad given their lives. Velasquez was laid beside the Americans. Teresa, a shivering; sobbing little figure in tbe garb of an insurgent soldier, was supported by big Graydon Bansemer. There was no long where he was.
