Tho New York newspopers who
are so constantly raising a cry about
the evictions in Ireland would do
woll to turn tlieir attention nearer
home. It appears from tbe records
kept in the eleven district courts of
Now York that from November,
1886, to November, 1887, there
were 22,804 evictions in New York.
In Ireland the process of eviction is
slow and complicated; in New York
a five days' notice to quit is sufficient. The hardships of eviction
are, therefore, muoh greater in New
York than in Ireland.
A specimen of volcanic ash collected on the Pacific coast in Ecuador, 120 miles west of Ootopaxi.lias
been analyzed by Prof. Mallet The
ash fell in July, 1885, and formed a
deposit to the depth of several
inches. The interesting feature in
tho composition of the material wus
the presence of a smnll amount of
silver, probably as silver chloride;
the result of several experiments
showed that silver was present to
the extent of one part in 83,000 of
ash. This is believed to be the first
instance that silver has been identified in matorial ejected from a volcano.
The Emperor of Germany probably owes his life to the ingenuity
of Mr. Vesey, u clever young English electrician. It was with a tiny
electric lamp invented by him that
Sir Morrell Mackenzie examined the
throat of his royal patient, and its
use led him to decide against the
theory of cancer. The lamp, whicli
is actually put down the throat of
the person examined, is affixed to
the end of what looks liko a long,
slender penholder, while the small
baltory which supplies the electricity is worn about the surgeon's
neck. As an uid to laryngosoopical
examination the apparatus should be
invaluable.

from it. He succeeded in two instances and visitors at the conservatories can now see the rare spectacle of a cnlln "going to seed."
This seed will bo grown, and novelties in tbo line of lilies are expected
to be produced. The department
has nlso some very rare specimens
of the banana, fig, pineapple, mango,

LIST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
THE EMPEROR FBEDEB1CK.
LONMN, April 17.—A despatch from
Berlin says it is learned from a direct
source that the physicians at the consultation to-day agreed that the emperor's
malady was approaching Its last stage.
This news haa been guardedly conveyed
to the members of the royal family, it
being intimated to tbem that the emperor requires the utmost care, though for
the moment there is no Immediate danger. The empress has postponed her
visit on Thursday to  Lunenburg and
THE GRIND THUNK H. II.
Lohdon, April 17.—Inlspito of the
issue of the Grand Trunk report the
marset for Canadians is dull to-day,
consequent on the anxiety in the for.
eign markets owing to the condition of
the German Emperor. On the first
issue of the report Grand Trunks receded, but since recovered, and are
now fairly steady. The market seems
to regard the 6s. 8J. dividend to the
second preference holders at the feature of tne report, this sum being available, owing to the unexpected profit
from the union with tbe Northern
Railway, tho guaranteed and the fint
preference having, of course, been paid
in full out of the net revenue. The
balance of £230,000 is a disappointing
result of the laat half year's traffic,
showing an increase of only £52,000
over that of the corresponding period
of 1886, It was mostly expected, however, owing to the deficient harvest in
Ontario and the loss of the dressed
beef traffic. As to the working in the
current half year, there seems to he a
tendency to consider the directors' prediction unfavorable. ,
THE FISBEKIES TREATY.
Ottawa, April 17.—The treaty bill
received its second reading at 2:20 this
ioniing after a division. The third
fading takes place this afternoon. The
fisheries treaty bill was read a third
time and passed io the house of commons to-day. The correspondence between the Canadian and imperial governments on the Manitoba diaullowance
question was brought down to-day. It
shows no instructions whatever from
the Imperial government. The Canadian government's reply .to Manitobo'i
complaint makes out a strong case in
favor of the Canadian Paoific Bailway
monopoly.
KIIST   BOBEBTS.
Ottawa, April 17.—The Dominion
government hu received the resolutions passed by the British Columbia
legislature asking the former to ac-
rs point Roberts, W. T., by pur-
e or otherwise. Tbe place is do-
cribed as a veritable " no nian'a-hndj"
it is a hot bed of smugglers and toughs
and no laws are observed, greatly to
the detriment of settlers.
A BRILLIANT  RECEPTION.
Londox, Apl. 17.—A brilliant reception was given at the residence of
Lady Sandhurst to-night, at which Mr.
Gladstone, Mr. John Morley, Sir
Ohu. Hussell, Mr. Justin McCarthy
aud many other liberal and home rule
notables were present. Mr. Gladstone
made a speech in which ho said tbat
the history of tho lut 50 years wu
the history of progress, moreover
it ww simply the history of liberalism.
The librrriil party hu progressed greatly since the Inst general olection though
they had been subjected to some disadvantage through the secession of the
unionists who had great social influence
nnd who, in his opinion, were the
greatest enemies of the union. He
concluded by saying tbat the prospects
of the liberals and nationalists were
hopeful in the extreme, and advised
increased energy which would bo certain to triumph in tbe end.

THIS HORMJiU'S DESFATCHKS.
IHE EMPEROR I.MPItOVINQ.
London, April 18.— All the despatches received from Berlin up to
midnight confirm the previous reports
that the Emperor Frodorick 's condition
is improving and his temperature is
much lower than it was this morning,
his respiration slower and tho symptoms of bronchitis are abating. The
doctors now nssert there is no: fear nf
pneumonia and express confidence in
their ability to remove the bronchial
irritation upon which the fears of au
inflntimtion of tho lungs has boen
founded. Aftor making hia appearance at tho window to-day tho emperor transacted a quantity of state business involving considerable writing.
VALUABLE HOHSKrr CREMATED.
San Franoisco, April 18.—The following are tho details of the firo which
broke out in a row of sheds on the
stock farm of Senator Stanford, late
last night: There wore nine valuable
rnccro in tho sheds all Ihe time, and
every person on the farm ran to
tho barns to try and save
them, but almost before the door could
be opened the host had driven the men
back and tbey wore forced to witness
tho cremation of the horses without
being able to lift a hand to save them.
Anvnig tho horses burned to death are
Clifton Belle, Rexford Maiden, and
Normaine, the latter the fastest yearling in the world. Palo Alto and
Mnnzanita aro so badly burned that
they will never recover. Four minutes
before tho flames were discovered Ule
watchman made his usual rounds and
found everything in proper order, but

Onr entertaining cotemporary on
Ohurch st. oonii's out this morning
as freah aa nn ancient mummy, and
tells his readers that he lias something else to do besides furnishing
intellectual pabulum for tho readers
of his ootemporaries. This is the
ground upon which lie declines to
give reasons to tho News and Tun
COLUMBIA!." for certain reckless
statements to which these journals
have taken exception. The policy
of tho Guardian is to make a false
statement and stick to it; and when
asked for proof or explanation, to
declare that it hasn't timo to bother
with such matters, and isn't going
to disturb the perpetual slumbers of
its own brain for tho sake of furnishing great thoughts to others free
of charge!   And this is journalism!
The Vancouver Herald thinks
that if tlio experimental farm lias
really been located at Agassis, it is
the wrong place, and the selection
will cause great dissatisfaction.
We entirely coinoide with this view,
and have already stated clearly the
reasons upon which our opinion is
based. But wc are a little surprised to find the Herald suggesting
that the municipal councils in this
district should protest against the
location of the farm. Lust summer
nearly every municipal council on
the mainland passed a resolution
recommending 'he Coquitlam farm
as the best suited for the purposo, a
faot whicli our cotemporary seems
to have entirely forgotten. It is
pretty well understood that the
Agassiz location was the result of
wire-pulling by persons more anxious
to serve their own ends than to
promoto tho interests of the country. It was believed that the location had been virtually determined
before tho last visit of Frof. Saunders, whioh was made ostensibly to
locate the experimental farm, but
possibly to give a coloring of honesty
to thnt which had been sottled upon
other grounds. For many reasons
it is believed by probably nine-
tenths of the people of this district
that a serious blunder has been
committed, but we believe that
Prof. Saunders is in no way responsible for it. Apparently he
was sent out to give official sanction
to that which hod already been
agreed upon. We are afraid it is
now too late to change the location,
for it is reported that a large tract
of land has already been secured.
It is a matter of profound regret,
however, that an establishment
from which a great deal of benefit
was expected to be derived should
have its usefulness seriously abridged by official blundering.
Next Saturday night another sale
of eity reserves and squares will be
■old under authority of the corporation. Among the lots still remaining unsold are a number lying
in various parts of the city, some of
whioh are well suited for building
purposes. We need hardly say that
Westminster is making rapid strides
in growth and improvement. Lost
year witnessed a great transformation on some of our business streets,
handsome and costly brick blocks
taking the place of woodeu,barn-like
structures which had been forced to
answer the purpose of shops. We
had also ereotcd a large number of
residences, some of which would do
credit to any city in the provinco.
This year building operations have
begun earlier than usual, and on a
scale hitherto unprecedented. In
all directions piles of lumber and
other material for building purposes
may be seen, and new walls and
roofs are rising where no walls or
roofs were ever seen before. Tlie
contracts now on hand by ono single
firm of contractors uraount to $20,-
000, and there are a large number
of contractors in the oity. lt would
be safe to assume, therefore, that
there will be a great deal of building
done in this city this season, and
that the value of real estate will be
considerably increased Besides
the ordinary causes which would
stimulate development, there nro
some special causes the influence of
whieh will undoubtedly be felt this
season. The position of this city on
a freah water harbor, and in the
centre of the agricultural und Iish
ing industries of the district, gives it
advantages possessed by no other
oity in the province. Recent events
have removed out of the way all
obstacles to the construction of the
Westminster Southern Railway,
which will give us direct connection
with the whole system of railways
on the Pacific coast, and very materially increase our commercial advantages. This is one of the special
considerations that is expected to
give additional valuo to all interests
centred in this eity. Another is
the prospect of the erection of another large aad complete sawmill,
which will give employment to some
hundreds of men, and become a
source of considerable wealth to us.
And in connection with this new
mill is the equally important question of riyer navigation, The Royal
Oity Planing Mills Oo., in conjunct
tion with ihe new oompany, expects
to be able to induce ocean shipping
to make this port for lumber charters, and if the scheme succeeds, of
whioh there does not seem to be
muoh doubt,WeBtminster will become
one of the wost important (hipping
ports on the coast, All these circumstances are full of promise, and
ought to be kept iu mind by those
who attend the real estate salo on
Saturday night.

Tlio following Is takon troia "A Nnr-
rativo ot Travol and Sport in Burmah,
Sam, nnd the Malay Peninsula," written
l.y Jolm Bradley, one ot a part** of three
ndveirtrrrous hunters. Ho had a rough
mtroiliii'titin:
Jn tire nfteinnoii wo continued on onr
liuirirli, but with no signs of being liltqly
tnuie t wilh sport, .,il.l about 4 o'clock
wa turned toward onr camp. We
inririrliinl along carelessly, without observing order or caution, am! wero not
prcparari to tako ivlvantago of Akbar's
wariiin;, when heoxcltiiiued: "Beware,
Sahib!" and a full-grown tiger wont tins6
us at a gallop.
A straggling volley wns fired aftor it,
nml, although evidently not struck, the
Inr ant stopped, and rearing itself on its
hind le.'s, clawed the bnrkof a tree, just
:ns a cut scratches tho leg of a chair or
tablo.
Mr. Cirant and myself tired simultaneously, but without oll'ccl, and, hefora'a
thought of tho creature's intention hud
time to Uriah through my mind, I was
down nn lor its paws.
S,ri ing mo by the loft tliiglir, the tiger
shoo; ine as a dog shrikes a rat; ami
F tir-u, growling horribly, drugged mo at
' a tivnioiidoiis rate through tlio [hick tui-
iler^rowth of tho forest.. I heard tho
fr'jtliteuc I shouts of iny companions, and
itliu report of several shots, and than a
di tirlnea* eamo over me; but I did not
los 11 on.sciotisness.
As 1 was jolted t'iroueli tho forest I
revei'iil .Vines caught hold of tbo trees,
Imt the tiger, growling fiercely, shook mo
free in an instant. All this tune,though
c-iilte cnlmand collecte'l, I felt a strong
rh'siro to preserve my existence, and
never for a moment experienced that
apathy with regard to my ilnnyer that
s ntte persons have described under very
Bimilur circumstances.
. How long twas in tlio jaws of this
brttfti I cannot tell. It seemed to mo an
ugj boforo the creature slo|i]ioil, My
companions afterward ilecfiiiMl that I
kind nnn ilragged at least hall n mile.
Tln-y followed as fast us they could run.
iinrl, although I wns unaware or itattliu
linro, uovcr lost sight of tho least. To
this circumstance I undoubtedly owe my
life; for had thero been any delay in
rendering mo assistance it must have
he n fatal to me.
Tbo moment tho tiger linU.-il it released
ny thigh, and seemed to bo nllrairted
•y tlu approach of my conrpaniorrs;
hough, ns yet, I did not seo them my-
k:l(. Tn!iing advantage of tliis release,
. triiTri to creep to t:*o shelter ot sorne
a.I bushes near at hand. In nn instant,
,u I with a terrible roar, the creature
in niriMl npon me, seinim; mo this time
v liirr shoulder and Itici r rllng my chest
,'ilb his claws. A sb"t wns lireil, und X
leanl the bullet whistle overhear]. Fear
f bitting me had caused tliom to tire so
igh. A second nud third shot wero
nually unsuccessful; and tho tiger,
.ruin releasing me, b'-gan to lick up tho'
lood which oozed through my jacket, I
icttiin to feol very faint, ami could not
epress a groan. Several times the tiger
abbed his paws, apparently in play,
bout my face, but did not uso its claws,
'cry fortunate for nro.
1 resently the lrenst seomOd -fS'lio
Ci/ed with a sudden rage and corn-
aem-dd to spit liko nn angry oat at some
ne approaching, whoso footsteps I could
ear, out I could not see him, for I wus
ying flat on my bock. Thore was n
ilinrp bang of a rifle close to my head, a
ueuvy weight fell across mo, and then I
•oiupieaeuded that my brave friend
irutit was pulling mo irom under tho
lead IrO'ly of the tiger. .
Captain Lacy and somo of the natives
■ami* up, and proceeded to staunch tlio
luwol blood from my wounds. That on
ny right thigh wns tho worst. Tho
eah was bitten and torn to such an ox-
uit that the bone was visible. The
omuls on tho cheat wero also severe,
ut my shoulder was not very much in-
Ired, When the bleeding waa stopped
filiated, and upon recovering to con-
riousness found I was being carried
long on a rough litter made of boughs,
surl'ercd great pain, especially in tho
sr, and was exceedingly thankful whon
u arrived at our camping place.
As soon aa the news spread about
liallnngat that a tiger had boen slain,
ru peoplo eamo crowding around our
nt to see it. Tho hubbub they creed was horrible. There wns shouting,
Biging, beating of tomtoms aud drums,
owing ot reeds, dancing and exulting
ver the dead animal. In my weak
ate tho noise was particularly irritating;
id as it was In vain to appeal to the
npathies of thoso people, the dead
last was removed to a distance, whero
ie rejoicing continued nearly all night.
Tho following day fever set in, and
•vurrl mwlncains delirious. With

A rcntarlcnble Naphtha Spring In Baku,
According to the Engineer'net and Min-
in-j Jit'irnul, one of the largest naphtha
foiii-tain-i yet known hns lately broken
out it-j'-r ! ink ii, which threatens to in-
un li to nil Unlakhiini. The naphtha,
owiu i to the pressure of tho gnses which
nceomp-my it, rises to a U YfiA of from
-•Oto 7)) loot; and is camctl away by
iiie wind lo a ;:rent distance, fulling like
(ine min at tho more distant p:irts of tho
(Ha.rict, but near the fountain coming
do.Mt m torrents that form rivers and
Ktea iilttfl. Further on it falls like sleet,
an l settiOo in ad ayer on ill the buildings
in tlio neighborhood. Theso naphtha
riv r.i flow for u distanco of more than
hnlf a mile, and p.-ss through wells,
works, res rvoiis, and inhabited houses,
rte. I n'ortttnately. u'.l the reservoir.*)
iu the lvi. hhoihood wero full when the
fountain I roke out, and the oil was thus
WRSted, Owing to the stillness of tho
ntmosphcro, nt one time tho gases which
accompany the naphtha spread in a
heavy layer for more than 280 yards,
tilling the houses nnd placing their in-
lu'bitants in a most dangerous podtion,
especially at night, when fires were lit.
Tho sand and dust thrown up by the
fountain form a hill of considerable size,
and have buried the boiler house of the
mining company's works and alt buildings in close proximity to the fountain.
There is no doubt that nny exposed
flame would set the whole district from
the mining company's works to the
b'abounchi railway station in a blaze.
Many oilorts have been made to stop the
Fprirur, but all have as yet proved unavailing, for after five or six hours the
fountain would again burst forth with nil
its former visor.. For some days the
fountain has been left to play without
hindrance, and has increased in power.
Jn consL".|ueuco of a strong and changing
wind setting in, the naphtha has been
scattered iu every direction, turning tho
whole district into a petroleum swiv.np.
Tlie naphtha pours from the roofs of tho
houses, on to which also fall the earth
and stones carried up by the oil.
How to Loosen a Tight Screw.
Ono of the most simple nnd readiest
methods for loosening a rusted screw is
to apply heat to tho head of the pcrew.
A small bar or rod of iron, flat at the end,
if reddened in the fire and applied for a
couple or three minutes to the head of
the rusted screw, will, as soon ns it heats
the screw, render its withdrawal ns easy
by the screwdriver its if it waa only a recently inserted screw. As there is a
kit hen poker in overy house, thnt instrument, if heated at its extremity and
npplied for a few minutes to the head of
the s row or screws, will do the work of
lous.-ning, and nn ordinary screwdriver
will do tne rest, without causing the least
damage, trouble or vexation of spirit.
In all work above the common kind,
where it is necessary to use screws, and
particularly in binge work and mountings, fancy fastening* nnd appliances
alnxed to joinery or furniture work we
would advise the oiling of screws or the
dipping their pointa Id grease before
driving. This will render them more
easy to drive and also to withdraw, and
it will undoubtedly retard for a longer
timo the action of rusting.
Fapsr Gas l'lpoi.
Paper gas pipes aro made by passing
an endless strip of hemp paper, the
width of which equals the. It-iMli of th i
tube, through a buth of molted asphalt,
nnd then roiling it tightly and smoothly
on a core, to give the required diameter.
When the number of layers thus rollud
is sulllcient to aQ'ord the dt-sir.-d thickness, the tubeisstronglycouipres-ed.tho
outside sprinkled with line gun ', and thu
whole cooled in water. When <oM the
core in drawn out, and the iiiHidu cooled
with a water-proofing composition. In
addition to being absolutely tight and
smooth, and much cheaper than iron,
theso pipes have great strength; for
when the sides nro scarcely ih'co-lifths
of an inch thick they will withstand a
pressure of more than fifteen atmospheres. If buried underground they
will not be broken by settlement, nor
when violently shaken or nrrod. The
material being a bad conductor of heat,
the pipes do not readily freeze.

He was a grocery clerk and as he

engage him in a conversation.
"Have you read much, Mr. Hen-oaT"
"Why, yes, a good deal."
"Are you fond of satirical writing!?"
"Yes, they go pretty good."
"What do yon think of ['one's 'Dun-

"Oh, they are all right, but I don't

About 1 o'clock this morning, 1*1.
Leando, tho tight rope performer, who
is stopping ut the Eickholf House, got
out of bed in his sloop, walked down
stairs out on to the street and finally
across the railway track and stepped
off and down iuto the water. Tho fall
was abuut fifteen feet and at a sp< t
where the water waa quite deep. Tho
ludden and cold termination of his
pleasant dreams rather surprised and
confused Leando, who soon mado tho
welkin ring with his cries for help.
Mr. Hogben, who, by the way, seems
to sleep with Hut ono eye abut, waa tlio
first aroused by tho cries, which wero
in Spanish, and of which langunge lie
is a master. Without waiting for u
complete toilet; Mr. Hogben dashed
downs to the water t\Aa\ and, nftcr almost superhuman elfort**1, drugged tlie
wuter-suaked Leando out alive, but in
a rather delapidnted condition. Mr
Hogben deserves the highest prime
for his promptness and gallantry.
The Elver Channel.
Thu result of Mr. Ewen's visit to
Ottawa, for the purpose of impressing
upon the government tho necessity of
appropriating a lurire sum of money for
the improvement of the Fraser Hiver
channel, is not known yet, and probably will not be until that gentleman's
return. In case tlie mission should
prove fruitless, ninny of our citizout
are of tho opinion the eity should immediately take the matter up, and, by
means of a lonn raised for the purpose,
make the improvements which are absolutely necessary if we desire ocean
vessels to visit this port. The Royal
Citv mills have been, nnd still are,
making strenuous efforts to charter
vessels tn loud at this port, but up to
the present thoy have been unsuccessful though more than ordinnry inducements have been offered. If New
Westminstor wishes to reup the im-
mence advantages arising out of its
becoming a port for ocean going vessels, by the establishment of gigantic
lumber concerns along the river, her
citizens must, if necessary, bo willing
to furnish the means whereby tho improvements can be carriod out.
Provincial Legislature.
In referring to the proposed amendment to the school bill, requiring the
cities to contribute towards the maintenance of the schools, the provincial
secretary intimated that it was the
government's Intention to give oity
trustees power to impose fees upon
pupils attending high schools if thoy so
desired. A largo amount of opposition
was manifesteu towards the change,
but the government gave no aign of
weakening. Mr. Hole's Sunday observance bill was defeated on a voto
of 0 to 13. Those who voted in favor
of it wore Messrs. Bole, Hobson, Ladner, Semlin, Andorson, and John,

Artesian Well** In I'uUrornin.
Eoitou Columbian --Tho development of well boring, which has taken
place within tho memory of most of your
readers, U accomplishing so much for
the benefit of man that it merits the
attention of all who feel tha need of
an abundance of puro water. Tho
desert of Sahara they aro making to
bloom us a gardon. The scorching
desert of Yuma and all the arid plains
of California, the vast pasture ranges
of the west and tho wheat regions of
Manitoba, all are rejoicing under tlio
life-giving influence which has boon
made to flow upon them from subterranean sources of water. British Columbia, also, in many localities, greatly needs the tapping of her unseen
waters, and tho benefits and profits to
flow from tlie onterpriso .ire just as
certain as nny where else, if not more
certain. It may, therefore, interest
many of your readers to notice a few
items in regard to artesian wells in
California, which I have lately obtained from unquestionable sources.
The number of wolls in the San
Juaquin valley alone in 350, with a
flow of 100,000,000 gals, of water
every 24 hours. In 1870 I traveled 75
miles up that valley without seeing a
house excepting the shanties of shepherds located at little springs alon-j
tho foot hills. A must deceptive
mirage covered tho vast scorched plain,
making it difficult to realize that it was
other than a great lake of clear wator,
so finely cut were the inverted shadows
of every treo aud bush. Now, by the
agency of artesian wells, tho great
valley has been converted into a garden, and two parallel railroads compete for its carrying trade. In Kern
county one 10-inch woll flows 2,000,-
000 gals, daily, and there nre others
littlo inferior. Tho existence of nearly
all of the new colunies we road of in
Southern California is due to artesian
wolls,
Tho ehi-af engineer of tho water
works at Stout on, Cal., his been kind
enough to furnish mo, in a private
letter, some interesting facts in regard
to tho water supply of that city. Ho
says there are 40 2-in. wells, ranging
from 90 to 250 ft. deep, the water
rising to within 7 feet of tho surface
Thero are also three wells ranging
about 1050 ft. deep and 8 in. in diameter. One of these flows 1200 gals,
per hour. Tho only obstacles met
with in boring have been beds of quick
sand. These cause great delay with
the old style of tools. The cost of
boring depends upon the formation.

■       Late Despatches.
London, April 15.--The news from the
east is not very encouraging, especially
that from Burmah. The uucoits have
again begun thoir depredations and have
already made a record of murder and pillage for themselves. In some districts
the dacoits, assembling in large bands,
have attacked military posts, sacked tho
towns and murdered anyone who felt into their hands. Tales of horror from a
few villisges on the outskirts of semi-
civilization have been related, and it
seems as though every dacoit in India
was in arms and possessed of a firm determination to do all harm and commit
all crime he could. At ono of the farther
military posts they were bold enough to
attack the guards, and succeeded in killing four men and wounding others. Detachments of cavalry wore sent after tho
miscreants, bnt tlioy escaped • to ono of
tlieir mountain fastnesses, ami thus eluded capture. Few of these wary warriors
have been mado captive, while thoy have
committed numberless crimes ami outrages. In one of tho remote towns a
band of these scoundrels made a nrid and
got away aftor killing three men and one
or two women ana burning several
houses. They always plunder and rob in
these attacks, but thore is no report of
their having obtained any considerable
booty. Travellers are the especial objects of thotr cupidity, nnd thu dacoits
have, in somo cases, held prisoners for
ransom Thoy are very shrewd aad cunning in all they do, and tho many attempts to capture them have proved futile as thoy can go whore Kuropcan sol*
diers cannot venture, and as for native
soldiers they are of very little use when
real courage must he quickly used.
