Magnanimous Strathcona.
Ottawa, Jutt 12..���It is understood
that Lord Strathcona, Canada's high
commissioner, bas made ou offer to
raise two mounted squadrons of 200
each, or 400 men in all, iu the Canadian Northwest, lo go to South Africa.
All that Lord Strathconu desires is to
get tbe militia machinery of Canada,
iu other words, tbe assistance of tbe department of militia, in enrolling, outfitting aud eqnippping tbe troops, and
he will defray tho entire cost of th.
same, as well as tbat of transports aud
mado by a correspondent at Melhuen's
home in Wiltshire, have elicited tho
information that, when ho received his
wound, his horse threw him heavily to

The disappointments nud reverses
are endured by Englishmen with fortitude and grim stoicism, but the utter
1 ck of trustworthy news from General
bullers' army has been borne witb in-
crens ng signs of impatience and irritability. The summons of tbe ambulance corps to the trout lust week after
every available battalion and cavalry
troop bad been called Into Natal, was
accepted as tbe signal for tbe impending battle, bnt when Ladysmith wns
bard pressed on Saturday tbe relieving
army was ouly capable of making a
harmless reconnaissance. Geueral Holler s immediate advauoe was regarded
as the inevitable sequel to tbe desperate
Boer assault upon ludysmith, bnt
three days have passed in silence, if not
in inaotlon. Probably no recent exp r*
ieuce bas been more trying to the English temper than this conspiracy of silence in Nutal. wben every man bas telt
in his heart that there was no t'me to

British soldiers ought to be moving

"Eight Boer oamps were seen today
by a patrol along tbe Tugela in n westerly diiection.   All were quiet.
"Natives say that when the British

the Boers hurried from Springfield.
This supports tbe belief tbat Oolenso

Tbe list of victims of disease iasned

from Gen. Bul er: "A Transvaal telegram gives the enemy's loss at Ladysmlth ou Saturday as four killed and

Wiunip-g, Jan.  11,   1900 Wheat
prices bave shown a declining tendency
dutiug ih ��� past lortnig.it, although the
market bas tbowu a steadier tone tbe
past two days. Tbe grain trade appears
undoidded at to the possible future of
values and is therefore not inclined to
enter into extended operations. To
ome extent the EugliabTrantvaal
troubles are responsible for tbit condi-
lii.n, for it is realize,! tbat tbey may
eventually involve other nations, which
nonld advance the pi ioe of graiu aud
general prodnoe. There it also tbe possibility of orop scares, whioh addt to
tbe timidity of those wbo r. gard the
-itoation us I earish and ar. Inclined to
sell sboit. Extptt business continues
small, although the tmall amount on
oooau passage would seem to warrant
tbe expectation of a liberal demand.
Money iu England is very tight, how
ever, and this may have something to
do with her .mall purobases. Tbe Argentine harvest is praotioally completed.
Tbe crop it a very largo one and said
to be of fine quality. That country it
expecled to offer wheat freely at lower
prices than the Amerioan wheat can be
sold at and shipments from there will
probably be limited only by the vessel
room obtainable. Tho atatistlcal position of the market at present is unfavorable to values, but crop disaster or
political complications .wonld quickly
change tbe sentiment and bring about
a subitjutial adavnee. The conrse of
pricet will depend upon tbe developments of the next two or tbree months.

Winter is a trying time for most
people ��� especially so for delicate
ones. Colds, la grippe and pneumonia find them easy victims.
Do you catch cold easily?    It
shows that your system is not in a
condition to resist disease.    You
will   be  fortunate  if  you  escape
5 pneumonia.
Nature is always fighting against
disease. The right kind of medicine is the kind that helps Nature by toning up the system and
enabling it to resist dit-ease. Such a tonic is only found in Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. By building up the blood
and strengthening the nerves these pills reach the root of disease, restore health, and make people bright, active and strong. -
