American Soldiers Dying of Fever

Over the World.
Omduriiinn, Opposite Khnrtumn on
the Nile, Nnhiu, Sept, 2.—(Ily cmmjl
post to Nasi-y.)-The ninlar, General
Herbert Kitchener, with tl»* kltulifu
bhick staudanl cnptured during the battle, eiiu-mi Ouitlurinnii, the capital ol
Mahdiaiu, at 4 o'clock this afternoon nt
the head of the Aiigln-KgypUmi column
after completely routing t!-e DcrvUhoa
aud dealing n death blow In M»kili-ini.
Roughly, onr losses were 2oi],Nwhile
thouBonds of ilu* Ueh'ishefl were killed
and wound.il. Al dawn the cavalry
patrolling toward Onuliinnun discovered
the enemy ailvancing to the attack in
battle array, chailliiig war sungs. Their
front consisted of infantry ami cavalry,
stretched out for three or four miles
Countless banners Buttered over their
masses, nnd Iheir copper nnd brass
drums resounded through the ranks of
the savage warriors who julvanceil unswervingly with all their old time ardor.
Our infantry formed outside the camp.
On the left were the l-'irst battalion uf
Northumberland fusileers, the Second
battalion Lancashire fnsileeis" and the
First battalion grenadier guards with the
Maxim battery,"-manned by the Royal
Irish fusileers. In the center were the
First battalion Warwickshire, First battalion Cameron Highlanders nud the
First battalion Lincolnshire regiment
with Maxims worked by a detachment
of lhe royat.artillery under Major Wil
liams. On our right were the Soudanese
brigades, commanded by Genet al Maxwell and General McDonald, lhe Egyptian brigades held the reserves and both
flanks were supported by Maxim Nor-
denfeld batteries.
Magnificent Rushes.
The bravery of the Dervishes can
hardly be overstated. Those who carried the (lags struggled wilhin a liuarl-
red yards of our fighting line. When
the Dervishes withdrew behind the ridge
ih front of their camp, the whole force
marched in echelon battalions toward
When our troops furnioun'ed the
crests the Soudanese on the right came
to attack those who had reformed under
the rocky eminence and hnd massed
aronnd the black stamtatd of lhe khalifa
iu order to make a Eupfemft effort to retrieve the fortunes of tbe day. A mass
of 15.003 strong bore down upon the
Soudanese. General Kitchener swung
round the center and left of the .Soudanese and seized the rocky eminence and
the Egyptians, hitherto in reserve, joining the fireiug Hue. lu ro minutes, and
before the Dervishes could drive their
attack home, the flower of lhe khalifa's
army was caught in a depression and
within a zone of withering crors tiro
from three brigades, with the attendant
artillery. The devoid iiialuli--ts strove
to gain Headway, but every rush was
stopped, while their main body was literally mown down by a sustained deadly cross-fire.
Died Around Tlicir Stnn-birds.
Defiantly the Dervishes planted llielr
standards and died beside them. Their
dense masses gradually nulled lo companies and the companies lo driblets beneath the leaden bail, filially Ihey
broke nud lied, leaving the field while
with thejibbah'Clnd corpses, which like

Along the Line.
Vesterdty the rails were laid pa I th1
Goat Rive* summit, and if no neeident
happens t e traeklaying gangs will reach
the lake b the 27th or aNtli. A year or
more ago, i> J, Ilaney, manager of con
structiou, V-fVi that he would have lhe
rails at the lift"- in October, ami the people laughed. Last winter he said he
would reach there in September; and the
wiseacres said it was a physical impossibility, ■ Results show, however, that Mr.
Haney's judgment was correct, and that
it was not a guessing mailer with Him.
Great progress Has been mnde nnd the
building of the road i 11 the time it has
been done is a surprise to the whole
Tbe TralbRobson Road.
"Although we are handicapped by the
lack of men, yet excellent (jrogteaS is being made in the construction of the Rob-
sou-Penticton.railway," said W. F. Tye,
the chief engineer for the Canadian Pacific railway, to the Rossland Miner last
week. "Tlie contractors have all lold
between 13600 and 3000 men at work
along the line arid they could use tbnt
many mote if the men could be obtained. Several carloads from Boston and
other eastern cities have beeu secured
but still the demand keeps np. The
wage is $2 per day aifd board is $5 per
week. A few of the camps are working
seven days a week, but for the mist part
the men have a rest on Sunday. The
contractors Have found, I suppose, that
a man will do as much work in six days
as he will in seven.

Each week gives additional evidence
of the confidence the people have iu
Cranbrook, Day by day ihe construe*
tion of new bulldjugS continues, and
week by week the towu shows Improvement and growth. And, what is extremely satisfactory to everyone it.terested in
Cranbrook, is the fact that the buildings
are of a character that would reflect
great credit upon a town ten limes the
size of Cranbraok. There is nothing
cheap or shoddy about the structures,
but ihey all show that the builders have
unbounded faith in the permanency and
future of the Lown.
At the present time building is being
retarded by the lack of lumber. Mr.
Leitch, with the oue mill he has tindei
way, has been pushed to the limit to
meet the demand. He has another mill
that is not yet ready, hut lhe demand
was unexpected aud although he had a
large supply on hand when the building
boom was Inaugurated, thai was soon
exhausted ami constant running could
not prevent u shortage.
Another drawback the past week has
been the lack of carpenters to carry forward the work iu bund. The number of
buildings contracted |for have increased
so rapidly that il wus impossible to secure the men required.
The next few weeks will bring about a
great change iu lhe general appearance
of Crailbrook. There are several buildings just framed, and many mure contracted for that have not been started.
Before winter sels in Cranbrook will
have n metropolitan appearance in every
way, and will have a great start for the
movement that is to follow next spring.

Just as General Grant, In his closing

The progress of English toward universal use was shown when Dr. Nan-

there Is uo continuity of policy at Washington. One administration might
make such an alliance and the next one,
four years later, might repudiate lt.
Yet we have had treaties which have
been faithfuly maintained, often

years. The simple truth Is that, despite

In Great Britain, by the wny—there Is
ln essential matters a greater degree of

The announcement is made In a dispatch from London thnt the Chinese
Foreign Ollice has decided to make Slogan fu, In the Province of Shen-sl, the
capital of China, In place of Pekin. The
new capital is said to be one of the most
Important of the northern cities of
China. It la situated at the Junction
of the Wei-lio and the King-ho,affluents
of the Yellow Itiver, and is the center
of trade routes from nil directions. It
has a large arsenal, Is strongly fortified, and Is the principal mllltnry depot
of Ihe northern provinces. The removal
Is tantamount to what the change
would be In this country If Boston
were tbo capital nnd It were changed
to Cincinnati. Greater security is what
undoubtedly has been the motive of
the Tsuug-ll-Yainen lu making the
change. I'ekln has been twice captured
by tlie English and once by the French,
and would have been taken by the Japanese during the late war had not Russia interfered.
In tlie war results already accomplished two causes contributed very
materially to the American victories—
the amiriif marksmanship of the
American gunners nud the wild marksmanship of the enemy. Shortly after
war was declared a naval expert, in
dlHcusttiug Die relative merits of the
two opposing fleets, predicted th:it the
American ships would be victorious I e
cause they were better inanii d. He
added that whereas the Spanish gun
uers were practically without ex*el-
ence In target practice the Aiiicrlc in
navy had burnt more powder lu exp r\-
mental marksmanship than tiie navies
of England, Germany and Spain combined. Target practice is ex pen tve. It
costs about ?2f>0 to tire one of the big
guns such as nre carried by the Iowa,
the Indiana, the Massachusetts and Iho
Oregon; but the actual results prove
thnt money devoted to that purpose is
well expended. Iu a recent Interview
concerning Ihe battle at Manila Paymaster Loud of the dispatch boat Mc-
Cullocb said: "At one time 1 really
thought we would be beaten. This was
after the lire had been kept up an hour,
It looked as It every gun ou the Spinlsh
ships had turned loose on us all together and the shore line was a veritable
blaze of fire from the batteries. The
din wns simply Indescribable. Tuns
upon tons of shot fell over our ships.
There was steel enough to have sunk
our entire tleet. Our salvation was In
the bad marksmanship of the Spaniards. Thoy handled their pieces like
boys. Nearly all of their shots went
wide of the mark." That doesn't tell
the whole story, but It tells part.
Dewey's marksmanship was as accurate as Montejo's was wild; the American gunners served their pieces as
calmly ub If they were engaged In regular target practice, and the result
speaks for Itself. When Admiral Sampson attacked the fortifications of Santiago a terrific bombardment of threa
hours laid the forts In ruins, und not
nn American ship wns struck, although
the squadron was within -,00t) yards of
Morro Castle. Tlio Spaniards had believed that the Santiago fortifications
were practically Imprognnble. They
were planned by Gen. Ordonez, the
most eminent engineer in Spain, and
mounted modern guns. Bul the men
behind the guns did not know how to
shoot; Sampson's meu did.
One of the earliest effects of the campaign against Spain was the development of a taste for war. The navy
reveled iu action after a long period of
sluggish Indolence. The regulars and
volunteers had a pleasurable sense of
excitement und new experience In military adventure. The great host of
newspaper readers throughout the
country hnd a spectacle to witness
which fired tiie blood and rendered the
ordinary scenes of peace dull und prosaic. For the moment It was like an
excited audience watching a bull fight.
The taste for war Is soon satisfied In
uny civilized community. War may
sometimes be necessary, but It Is barbarous lu spirit, scientific as tlie mechanism may be. The sober second
thoughl among our people must always
be tbat war Is, at the best, the most
brutal sport In which men or nations
cun interest themselves. .Mr. Gladstone
once said that there wns nothing more
remarkable In history thnn the dish nd
ment of the Northern nnd Southern
armies at the close of the civil war,
and the Immediate absorption of a million veterans In pacific Industry. No
tuste for war had been created during
four years of storm nnd stress. The
peoplo of this country learned dining
that terrible period to detest tlie carnage, bloodshed and evil passion or
warfare. That, let us hope, will lie the
final effort also of hostilities with
Spain. After the civil war the reaction wns carried too far. Conscious of
tbe resources nt our command In an
emergency, Congress cut dowu the army to twenty thousand men, aud neglected tlie nnvy until It was scarcely
worthy of the nnme of navy. It was
not until INS.'! that tho building of a
new navy was undertaken, aud the
work was allowed lo drag from year
to year. Questions relating to const
defense were Idly debated lu Congress
session nfter session, and the Atlantic,
Gulf and Pacific seaboards were left
unprotected. When n real emergency
came, nfter n single flurry with Italy
and a temporary menace of war with
Chill, the country waa unprepared for a
campaign. Everything had to be done
nt ouce nt high eost and unscientifically. Ports were hastily fortified, vessels of war were purchased abroad, n
merchant fleet was armed, nnd the European market was ransacked for
quick-firing guns nnd war material of
all kinds. It was a most expensive and
wnsteful method of preparing a nation
for serious warfare, lt Is easy, but It
Is not wise, to be beguiled In piping
days of peace by the cuckoo song thut
we shall never hnve another battle to
fight. War Is Invited by lack of preparation. The surest guarantees of
pence nre a fortified const, a strong
fleet, a well-organized army, and a
large stock of the best weapons known
in modern warfare. There should be
knowledge of wnr, ^without a public
tnste for bloodshed.

TIIE dny, the long, radiant day,
has drooped and faded like the
passlouai-Miued velvet roses that,
clambering about the wide French windows, turn their beautiful dusky Southern faces, now lost in the night shadows, to greet a little caressing wind
which, laden with the perfume of their
kisses, stents from the garden Into the
quaint, dimly-lit old room where n few
of the usual afternoon ten-drinkers are
lounging and loath to leave.
"I declare," says Bobby Smythe, who
has uublushlngly consumed countless
seltzer lemonades and gallons of Iced
punch, and Is now cheerfully beginning
his fifth cup of Russian tea, "1 should
like to make this room my permanent
home, really I should. If yon will let
me," turning his homely, pleasant face
toward the gentle chatelaine, "I promise not to put you out nt all. 1 could

window seat and do my own cooking
and washing, aud I tieedn't Interfere

"Bobby," observes Betty, who Is rev-
cling lu a desperate flirtation with nn
officer of the Twenty-third; "hns always such charmingly feasible plans
to suggest. Ills Ideas are really childlike In their simplicity,"
"1 try to make them so," answers Mr.
Smythe, "because I know the intellects
I hnve to deal with, and I want to he
Interesting to you, Betty, its well as—"
"Potlfl" cries Betty, contemptuously,
ami slicks Hie tip of her small red
tongue out at Bobby with an Impertinence which riles that young man apparently to such a degree that he
reaches for a chair with which to scatter her brains, and ihen goes over to the
ten table where the little girl la the
gray gown Is smiling over the silver teapot, while Belly Hnd her particular
lieutenant wend their wny out to the
shadowy lawn to make up any time
that has been lost.
"My sweet child" says Bobby, as he
passes over hts cup to be refilled, "you
don't know how perfectly charming
that sliver teapot looks with you as a
background! But there, 1 believe you
are deep-sou led aud don't care for compliments. You'd much rather listen to
u philosophic problem, wouldn't you?
Weil, here's one. Why is Betty wheu
she lllrts?"
"I give it up," answers the little girl
Iu tbe gray gown, lifting u Hower of a
face to Bobby's freckled aud shlnlug
visage. "I suppose the answer Is, because she wanted to get on tbu other
side of the road or 'so did the other
one,' or something of thnt sort, eh';"
"My child," replies Mr. Smythe, "you
are frivolous, and there Is nothing
which I disapprove of so much as frivolity. Why Is Betty when she flirts?
Becnuse he leaves for the Philippines
to-morrow.   That's the answer."
The little girl in the gray gown laughs
lightly, though her eyes are grave, very
"I do believe," says she, "that you are
the Cheerful Idiot iu disguise."
"Discovered!" cries Bobby, "but, O
spare me and kill the child! As henvet
Is a witness, I meant uo wrong "
But here he is, providentially, Interrupted by a tall man In a lieutenant's

Smythe tells Sctiddy inter he would
give a dollar to possess, especially wben
Betty has chocolate cake for afternoon
ten, and his browned strong face Is
saved from absolute homeliness by an
Indefinable fearless stamp that Is the
outward and visible sign of (he brave

"Will you," says he, with nn expansive smile that somehow softens the
Impression he gives of dash and danger,
"be so kind as to give me a cup of ten?
It will be perhaps two or three years
before I will have Ihe chance to get au-
ether refreshing cup poured for me by

"Jeruslaeml" observes Bobby, with
sympathy, If not elegance, "but that's
a long time between drinks, old mnn!
You'd better make the most of your
present opportunity," and then, with a
wisdom that does hlm credit, he nods
an au revolr but not good-by to the little girl In the gray gown, and hies hlm
over to Freddy vau Twitter, who, with
his hands thrust down deep ln bis
trousers' pockets, Is scowling battle,

"Got the toothache?" asks Mr.
Smythe, flinging himself dowu In one
corner where Betty's prettiest cushions
bnve been arranged with au eye for effect rather than beauty. "If you have,
try my remedy— plg's-feet dipped In

fiercely, aud ns one who follows a silent
train of thought: "BrnsB buttonsl"

on the two flgurcs at the distant tea

Aud so presently they go out through
one of lhe wide French windows Into
the soft night that is filled with the perfume of the passionate lined velvet
roses, and there, when he has made her
comfortable In a sen chair, with cushions behind her small dainty heud, he
tells her tales of death and danger and
life on the burning sandy stretches of
the Texas frontier.
"Yea, I understand," says the little
girl In the gray gown, a rose among the
roses, as he called her, seeing through
another's eyes for the first time lhat
bit of brown loneliness lu the desert;
"and the tortilla you Baid the scout

"Merely a little.cake which he bakes

How a -pttniab Woman  Puts On tha

When a senora or senorita turns her
mind from the church it is to think of
clothes; ln fact, Bays a Writer In Har-
per'B Bazar,  the two thoughts often
run together, as there Is much church-
going in Spain.    Let it be premised
that badly drawn pictures of Spanish
gypsies and dancing girls have given
Americans their Ideas of Spanish women's dress; that the American fancy,
thus misdirected, takes a flying leap
from one extreme, at which are high-
heeled Bhoes, to tbe other extreme, at
which Is powdered hair; when, lu
of fact, Spanish women no longer
skirts to the ankle merely- nelth
they fasten ropes of beads abou

mark of Spanish women, Ib worn  by
ultru-fashlonnble ladies ouly lo the bull
tights,  theaters,  annual    fairs,   early
mass and on summer   even'ugs;    not
when vailing or shopping. Oily old ladles and unfashionable imtsmih do not
wear bonnets,
The mantilla Is an oblong piece of
lace, measuring n yard and a half lu
length and two-thirds of, a yard In
width. The front and aides mve n Itor-
der finish, while tho bot totals trimmed
with a flounce a quarter ■*/ a yard deep,
which rounds np the side edges about
seven Inches.
In order tu hold this graceful lnce
the hair must he plied high on the top
of the heed. Place the front edge of
the mantilla along the upper liue of the
forehead, fasten to the hair with a pin,
after making sure tbat the ends which
hang on either side of the face are exactly even in length. With a hand a
little above each ear, pinch the lace and
draw it back to the crown of the head,
where It is very slightly lapped aud
fastened by another pin. The flounce,
which falls naturally about the shoulders, Is caught lu by the front ends
and pinned at the breast.
Of course, the loug Btralght scarfs
can be and frequently nre worn as
mantillas, but they necessitate a piece
of black silk, which measures a yard
and a hair ln length and three-quarters of a yard In width (always used,
even under large mantillas In winter),
to protect the bock of tlie head from
cold. This piece of silk is fastened by
an edge from the center to the back of
the hair, and covers tbe shoulders, having the ends drawn lu with lace at the
breast. White lace la the regulation
head-dress for women of fashion at the
bullfight. Flowers are frequently
tucked In the hair lu front, far
enough back to allow the lace to partially cover them.
If American la.tics would only learn
how to arrange a mantilla it would certainly become fashionable for the theater, as It Is ao becoming. Spanish women are traditionally fascinating. Let
any other woman who knows how to
wear a passably becoming hat, and has
only beeu considered "neat-looklug," or
"pleasant-looklug." wear a mantilla for
a trial, and people will change their
criticism to "charming," "lovely," etc.
It softens the face wonderfully. Doubt

he said, "resulted from my receiving
the strangest one. My services were
secured to perform the ceremony for
a young couple out of the wealthiest
families of my parish. It was n church
weddtug and n very swell affair indeed. At the conclusion of the ceremony the groom handed me a smalt envelope which I supposed contained my
fee. Of course I did not open It until
1 girt home. Imagine my surprise when
I found, not money, but n lllteral chew
of flue-cut tobacco. My good sense totd
me that It was not intended as an Insult, so I nwnited developments.
"A fortnight later, when the newly
married couple hud returned from their
wedding tour, the groom enllod on me,
offered most profuse apologies aud
made explanations. It seems that he
was addicted to the use of tonncco and
hnd placed a If tile in an envelope for
his needs right nfter the ceremony. He
had placed my fee In a similar envelope and In the confusion of the cere

A strong point in favor of Cranbrook is the factj
£X il that wholesale houses of the east and west recognize!
,|j, jjthis place as the distributing point of East Kootenay J
and are locating their branch houses here.
The C. P. R. ,are putting up better buildings in
Cranbrook than at any other place on the Crows

Cranbrook is already the financial center of East\

(than any other town in the district. And there is]

The Melnnis family seem to take to

One J. M. Carroll, who would protest
against oblivion, seeks to attract public
attention by signing articles in the l*'ort

be humorous thrusts at Cranbrook and
the people of this city. With a paper
kind enough to print such screeds, it is
possible for men like Carroll to foist
themselves upon public attention. lie

A petition asking for u school house

proper authorities at Victoria. It is to
be hoped lhat they will recognize the
pressing necessity for sn-h an institution
in ft town the size of Cranbrook, especially as it Is growing so rapidly. British
Columbia his reason to be proud of her
record iu providing schools when the\
are needed. It would be n sad com men
tory on the present government if the
need of a school at Craubrook should be
ignored. There are too many parents
interested in the mailer here, and loo
many children waiting for ihe government to take action to permit of auy delay. The town needs tlie school and
there is little doubt that it will receive
it. .
