The Evening News* PUBLISHED DAILY (EXCEPT SUNDAYS) BY ROB'T B. BMYTHE. Entered in the Postofflce at Harrisonburg as second-class matter.l TUESDAY, JUNE 13,1899. A GENERALLY MISTAKEN IDEA. The tide of European travel from the \j nlted States, which began to flow some time ago, has set In strong. Every steamship sailing from an American port for the Old World carries a full passenger list, while not a few persons are compelled to remain behind for lack of accommodations. So great is the rush that staterooms must be reserved weekß ahead of sailing day if delay is to be avoided. It is estimated that the sum annually spent by Americans in Europe amounts to $100,000,000, an aggregate so large as to elicit involuntary expressions of regret at so heavy a diversion of money, , which might, objectors venture to suggest, be disbursed far more profltably|at home. This outgo, however, is not wholly without its compensating features; it by no means represents a total loss. The writer who journeys...

Volume 1, Number 33. 60 AMERICANS LOST A UREAL BATTLE IN THE PHILIP- PINES YESTERDAY. Our Losses Heavy, But the Americans Are Fighting Yet Against Heavy Odds. Cablegrams from Manila state that an all-day battle between Americans and Filipinos raged yesterday on a strip of land along the shore of Manila bay extending from Cayite Viejo (old Cavite) to Las, Pinas, about seven miles distant. At 8:10 p, m., time of the last advices, the battle still continued. Tba Americans had driven the Filipinos back slowly, but there appeared to be no decisive result, as the natives still occupied a strong position. The Amerioan force engaged consist- ' ed of 3,000 men under General Lawton, aided by the guns of a number of warships. The Filipino strength is unknown. The loss of General Lawton's force is estimated at 60 killed and wounded. The Filipino loss could not be accurately computed. The battle began early in the morning, when the Filipinos fired two shells from a cannon into Cavlte Vie jo. Thi...

We had believed that from the ancient Norman Britain together with the Saxon had we sprung as a new and distinct race, always progressive and developing into the present high standard of oivilication which distinguishes the Anglo-Saxon from all other peoples, and that our distiny would be, in working out the purposes of the great Creator, to both surpass and control and possibly absorb all other races of Men.

While in Washington one day I saw come out cf the department of justice a woman of attractive appearance. As she paused a moment on the step and looked with bright, observant eyes ovet at the White House and along Pennsylvania avenue, she presented a picture of comfortable, placid middle age.

Volume 1, Number 34. INTERESTING RELIC QUAINT OLD DOCUMENT RROUQHT TO LIGHT. Ancestors of Some of Our Local Residents were Prominent In Chnrch Affairs. Mrs. Buford G. Shacklett has handed to us a quaant old document, which is an interesting relic of the past. It is the " Minutes of the Culpeper Baptist Association, holden at Thornton's-Gap Meeting-House, Culpeper County, October Ist, 1802." This quaint old document was doubtless found among the papers of the late Samuel Shacklett, who almost all of his life was a devoted member of this large and Influential denomination of Virginif Christians. Prom early manhood Mr. Shacklett spent his life in Harrisonburg, acquiring a large estate and leaving to his descendants the yet greater benefit of an honored name. He was so well known in both town and county that to call him to remembrance here is almost superfluous. So few are the years since he moved among us that the memory of him is fresh in the minds of our middleaged citizens. This doc...

It has only been a couple of weeks since it was the most popular of all fads to prate of Admiral Dewey, his return home, of innumerable feasts, even one so extravagant as to give him a " snob " dinner in New York to cost $100 a plate, also a proposition to present the old hero with a $100,000 residence in Washington with another $150,000 endowment to enable him to spend the balance of his days in absolute rest and ease, and the last-named sum to maintain the expenses of his fine establishment, etc. All of these {honors were freely spoken of and dilated upon by the press and publio have passed, and the "snobs" aforesaid have had a "dab in the mouth" that has opened their eyes and set their ears to tingling.

He Took the Iloncs of the Murderer From the Grave and Huns Them on the Wnll of His Outhouse—A Tragedy of the Civil War, "Morning, colonel." "Morning, sir,'' replied the man who was leaning over the fence. He was a short, thickset man, with a clear and piercing ey«, his face shaved smooth, with not the suggestion of a ■wrinkle; yet his hair was as white as snow. He had a slight southern accent, and his hearty manner of inviting the visitors in and his cordial hospitality were wholly southern. One of the visit6rs knew him and had told the other that there was a man with' a bona fide skeleton in his closet and that the skeleton had a story. It did not require any persuasion to obtain a glimpse of the skeleton. The owner presently led the way to an outhouse, and, opening the door, displayed the skeleton of a man, badly fastened together and hanging to the wall by the neck. The M...

The war news from the Philippines is anything but pleasant reading. Our Army in that far-off part of the world Is saffering reverses —more from the effects of the climate than Filipino bullets—and the Government officials at Washington seem to be stupifled or in a dazed condition, which has produced an impotence in management that is little short of criminal. The 30,000 men declared by' Gen. Otis as sufficient for all purposes in the Philippines means active men, and whilst nearly that number may be there already, yet about one-half have been prostrated by hard marches under a tropical sun, and other labors incident to the life of a soldier. The Amerioan force on the Island of Luzon, as is well known to almost every one, is« totally inadequate for the pupose in hand. One hundred thousand soldiers are nee...
