Nigger attracted the attention ot

London, Not. 10.���Ths British transport Roelyn Oaatle, -with Gen. Bill-raid
and the staff of the Yorkshire regiment
aboard, arrived at Oape Town. Four
other transports sailed from England
the same day, Ootober 19. 1'he Roelyn
Oastle waa immediately ordered to -proceed to Durban.
London, Nor. 10.���-The scanty and
conflicting news from the seat of war
and the fsot that General White haa
not yet said a word abont tha alleged
fighting aronnd Ladysmith are again
producing a feeling of uneasiness. It
���nay be that General While has sent
news and tbat General Buller hu
thought best to keep it to himself. Indeed, this ia tho version that is begin,
nlng to bo believed, as it is believed
that the news of heavy fighting brought
by Kaffirs in suoh circumstantial detail
cannot bo wholly groundless. It cannot
be loug. however, before u change oo
curs, General Boiler's forces will soon
arrive at Durban, and will probably be*
gin the advance to tho relief of Lady*
smith about November 15.
The Boers, if they ever entertained
the idea of a real invasion of Oape Colony, have probably now abandoned it,
and will devote tbeir whole energies to
reducing Ladysmith. They have only
abont a we, k In wbioh to do this. The
fact tbat they are rather inactive indicates that thoy ore waiting for something whioh tbey feel sure will justify
their delay. The latest Kulcoort dispatches seem to hint tbat the garrison
is about to retire further southwards.
Orders bave been received at Wol*
wich nmlDevoiiport for the mobilisation
of a siege train, whioh it is supposed,
is intended for the purpose of shelling
Pretoria. The force manning It will
approximate to the strength of eight
batteries, and will consist of 89 officers
and 1,104 non-commissioned officers
nntl men. Its aruiument will be thirty
Howitzer, fourteen 0-iuch guns, eight
S*inch guns and eight 4-inch guns, tbe
whole train weighing over 11,000 tons.
This will be the first employment of a
modernized siege train by an European army, and the progress of tho reduction of the forts by lyddite shell fire,
as preliminary to storming by infantry,
will be watched with interest and onr*
iosity by all professional soldiers.
Three large steamers bave just been
chartered at Liverpool to convey the 10, -
000 troops of the division whioh Lord
Wolseley yesterday announced will be
mobilized. The transport Arawa has
been delayed by a disarrangement of
her electrical plant. The disabled Persian will transfer her troops to the
Goth, whioh will leave Southampton
next Tuesday. A dispatch from Durban annonnoes that Prince Victor of
Sohleswig-HolBtein arrived there on
Monday, and immediatey proceeded up
The correspondent of the Daily Telegraph at Pletermarltzburg and Ladysmith says they are all safe for some
time to come. Owing to the faot
that Ladysmith lies low, and the
Boors, unluckily, have been permitted
to occupy Mount Bulwan and other surrounding big hills, attempts to open up
heliogrnphic communication has proved
a failure.
The Oape Town correspondent of the
Standard says: The ministerial papers
here are giving currency to Infamous
Boer charges of British brutality to pris-
. oners and the treacherous use of the
white flag. It ia asserted that the British bave bound prisoners to the wheels
of Maxim guns and dragged them
al ng.
From Port Elisabeth comes the intelligence tbat the easterns officials there
hare seized a bale of new flags consigned to the Free State, consisting of
Orange Free State colors with the Netherlands flag in the corner.
At Constantinople it is rumored
that Lord Cromer, British diplomatic
agent in Egypt, bas received instructions to arrange with the Egyptian cabinet for the dispatob of 5.000 Egyptian
troops to the Transvaal, but the reports
is disci edited here.
The London Times has the following
dispatch from Lorenzo Marques, dated
Nor. 6.���-Delagoa Bay is full of secret
service police, getting information regarding the movements of the imperial
service trocps. The wire between Delagoa Bay aud Pretoria waa broken dnring the hurricane. It wu not out u
wu thonght at first.
Thero is a Boer contingent of 750
men near Komatiport. 1 find women
have been leaving Durban for Pretoria
with news. Piuses are too easily
granted at Durban.
I understand that the contingent
from Oolenso is marching toward Gray-
town, and I hear on the best English
authority tbat Johannesburg hss been
stripped of guns and men, the polioe
force being composed of Russian Jews.

Loudon, Not. 8.���-To the eye* ot
military experts the darkest page of tbe
-war is now being -written. Bnt even
tbat is illuminated with bright passages, snoh as General White's victor-
ions sorties. If he oan keep the British
dag flying from Ladysmith nntil he is
releved, the campaign will turn a fresh
page, and vith the advance of Sir Red-
vers Boiler's force, the British publio
is promised more cheerful rending.
This feeling of relief, inspired by re-
cent good tidings, is nevertheless tinged
by a certain alloy of anxiety, lest Gen.
White should again make some fatal
miscalculation, involving a repetition
of the Nicholson's Nes disaster Her
Majesty does not share this anxiety,
and Is apparently saiignine of his
ability to pnll through.. It ia asserted
tliat she has written to Lady White expressing sympathy with her husband in
the trials nnd difficulties he is now experiencing, aud assuring Lady White
of her own undiminished confidence In
bis generalship. The purport of Ibis
letter ba beeu cabled to Gen. White by
the Marquis of Lmsdowne.
The most interesting news today Is a
dispatob from Estoonrt announcing tbe
departure of a Strang force of mounted
corps and artillery for a destination not
given in the advices. Another messsge
annonuces the arrival at Estoonrt and
Fietermaritzbnrg within the last few
days of relnforoements from Durban
and that 8,600 troops are assembled
ready for entering Colenso when the
opportunity arrives. The latter dispatob throws light ou the former and
the torce whioh left Estoonrt Monday
last donbtless reocenpied Oolenso and
possibly is uow advancing cnntlonaly
toward Ladysmith, General White's
sortie of Friday almost to the banks ot
the Tngela river, encouraging i:s commander lu the hope of joining hands
with bim.
Geu. Joubert, the latest advices indl*
oate, drew in his horns after Friday's
engagement and lias since withdrawn
the southern Boer contingent, leaving
only outposts on the line from Ladysmith toColen-o,
At Estoonrt and Pietermoriaburg the
defensive works have been greatly
srength'ened within the last few days
and they are now believed capable of
holding their own against auy Boer
force whicli General Jonbert wonld at
the present jnnoture risk sending. Both
are likely to be strengthened before tbe
week is ont by a further naval tone
and even by tbe first detachment of
General Buller'., army oorpi.
None of the troopships have arrived.
The one which it is predicted might
reaoh Oape Town at tbe earliest on
Monday is as yet unannounced and
even when it does arrive there, it might
have three dayB' steaming to mach Durban, Natal. As many as six transports
with i,500 troops were expected to be
in Oape Town harbor by this time ,bnt
the war ollloo last evening issued a
statement to tbe effect that the only arrivals at Oape Town were the Sumatra
from Durban with wonnded; tbe Southern Gross, from Gibraltar, with mules
and the collier Weuvoe.
The sitnatiou looks brighter at Mafeking where the Boers are apparently
disheartened at tbe unexpected resistance, alarge body of their tone having
been detaobed to the south to assist in
the Investment of Kimberley, around
wbioh the cordon is drawing tighter.
Evidently the Boers intend to make a
oonoentrated effort to capture - Kimber
ley and their aroh enemy,Oeoil Rhodes.

association may be summed np shortly
aoont as follows, as on the 81st December next. Total receipts, 146,8911.86

to the 1st December, 1890, (1,10 total,
145,78.17, whioh would leave an estimated balance at the end of the year,
in band, of 11,689.18.
There was spent in Improving the exhibition grounds end premises, wbioh

tion, the mosst artistic hanger Ihe association has yet issued.
The manager recommended that th*
dates for next year's fair be the week
follow! g the Mud July, and In order
lo avoid the necessity of exhibitor* being nway from borne a second Sunday
he suggested tbat the live (took oome in
on the Friday and Saturday previous,
and that the judging commence promptly on Monday morning. This arrangement will enable livestock exhibitors
to leave for borne again at 6 o'olook
Friday of exhibition week. After a
very fnll dlsonssion thll recommendation was accepted.
Then will be a large increase asked

think 1 may fairly claim to know
more of Monty's peculiarities than
most people, for I bave known bim all
my life.
Therefore, when he told me one afternoon that he waa going to be married,
I felt In a position to pity tbe girl from
the bottom ot my heart "Monty," by
tbe way, I* a contraction of "Monument," a name I specially Invented, as
summing up neatly both his physical
and mental aspect
He 1s tall and 'extremely handsome,
after the style ot the later and more
degenerate Greek gods, bearing on
every feature nud In every movement
the stamp of languor and of lailness.
He le Indolence personified, and. Indeed, If yon take that away, then remain* little or nothing but Obstinacy
(with a big O). This combination,
blended together by a tbtck solution ot
self complacency, produces, metaphorically speaking, a stone wall.
Iou cannot argue with bim; be will
neither be convinced himself nor at
the trouble of convincing you. Vou
cannot Interest him against Jils will,
and he seldom wishes to be Interested.
Finally you cannot even have the satisfaction of quarreling with bim, for he
will not be roused, and looks on your
supreme efforts to anger him with tlio
easy tolerance of a victorious Perseus
watching Medusa's snaky locks In-
twine tnemselve* around bis fingers
and strive to make htm relax hia hold.
At one moment of our lives be wonld
have had me believe In bis lordly way
that he was uot unwilling to link my
destiny with bis. But, strange to relate, I remained unmoved by tbe golden prospect of bis companionship, protracted Indefinitely���perhaps eternally
-and hi* tentative hints lapsed easily
Into oblivion. To return to the nfter
noon In question. Being aware of his
artistic temperament, I naturally jumped to the conclusion that bla choice
had fallen .on' "a daughter of the gods."
"Oh, no," be said In bis slow way,
"a beautiful woman Is delightful Io
look at, but not to marry. Sbe would
be Impossible to manage."
"Then Is sbe young?" I asked, though
my curiosity was somewhat damped.
"Just 17," he observed thoughtfully
and was surprised at uy exclamation,
"But, my dear tlonty, you are old
enough to be"���
"Excuse me, Mlmmle, I would rather
she were still younger. Marry a child,
and you may hope to educate ber Into
the wife you would cherish In your old
"Ob!" I gasped. "Then what I* she
"Inclined to be frivolous, but I shall
soon remedy that The poor girl la
only too glad to find a man who la not
bunting ber for her paltry live or all
hundred a year."
That 1 could readily believe, and, la
justice to Monty, I must say tbat money, aa mere money, does not In tbe
least appeal to him. Perhaps tbat la
because be baa always had enough to
be comfortable.
But be was not a good lover. He waa
even tben far more Interested In tbe
academy than In bla fiancee's charms.
There wer* three or four portrait* of
lovely women tbat he spoke of In a
way that made me glad the original*
did not come within hia sphere of acquaintance���for the girl's sake.
H. did not carry her photo In hia
pocket It took him several moments
of bard thought to remember ber address, and���"Wben you are Intimate
enough to call ner by her Christian
name," be remarked, ."please call ber
Bupliemla and not Effle."
"Why?" I asked, determined on no
account to do so.
"Because," be answered Impressively, "Effle Is too Insignificant for a married woman, and 1 bare a strong objection to pet Dames."
"When," I Inquired sternly, "wben
did you ever In the whole courso of onr
lives call me by my baptismal name?"
Monly smiled Indulgently.
"That Is different Yon are not going
to be my wife."
I confess I reveled In tbl* consoling
thought, for nothing In tha world could
ever reconcile me to the peculiar atrocity of my name, and If Ita full bldeous-
ness were to. be the hourly accompaniment of my married Uf* 1 should be
���frald of tba consequence*. It la Jemima. Now, you may say, and with
perfect truth, that "Mlmmle" la not
particularly melodious, but at leaet yon
will admit tbat nothing could be wore*
than Jemima and anything might De
"By tbe way," said Monty after n
pause, "I" believe there was a time
when I bud a fancy for you, Mlmmle,
and thought you might not mako mo a
bad wife."
"There may hav* been," I answered
calmly, "for I can distinctly remember a timo wben I decided that certainly you would make me a bad husband."
And Monty beatowed upon me one ut
those all forgiving, albeit ud, glance*
tbat are so abominably Irritating when
one Is trying one's beat to snub bim.
��� .      ...      .      .
After Monty's canal remark* I wa*
surprised to Dad Effle a alee looking
girl, though with, ot course, no pretensions to the Junoesque tbat Monty
demand* of bis Ideal woman. Shewn,
yonng, Indeed, but had aa old fashioned way with her that was Infinitely
attractive. I had guessed Intuitively
that aba bad neither father aor mother, although many people might uy
that this waa judging my cousin too
hardly. Her guardian* wen so elderly uncle and aunt, who didn't mind
what ahe did so long as ah* didn't
worry them, so I wu glad to help ber
with her trousseau and tee as much
ot ber aa possible.
1 soon discovered that Monty objected to her having ao many friends.
"Lancelot" aa ahe waa made to call
bim, thought "gadding about" showed
"empty beadedneu."
"But, my dear child," I exclaimed,
"be surely doesn't expect you to drop
your friends jnst because you ar* go*
Ing to marry him? Why, you will
want them mor* than aver. What dn
you suppose you'll do when b��'s at
work all day?"
"Tben he baan't told yon he's going
to resign tb* partnership?" uid Effle timidly.
My heart frou, and tb* fact must
hav* been clurly evident to her, for
she hastened to add, "Vol. don't think
he spoils me loo much, do you, In giving It up for my sake?"
' And the recording angel should put It
to my credit that 1 only answered i

Yesterday I tackled him.
"What do you moan." I uked. "by
retiring from bnslneu at your age?"
"And why not?" be uid. "Isn't a
husband', place at bla wife's side J"
"Most emphatically no," I rejoined
with deadly earnestness. "A husband's
duty Is to make money for his wife to
enjoy herself with."
"My dear Mlmmle," he begged pathetically, "don't put those sorts ot
Ideas Into Euphemla's head. Von are
too frivolously minded to understand
that a woman should be a man's handmaid mentally as well u physically
and not bis plaything. I don't want a
wife who requires amusing or who
wishes to amuse me. If I want relaxation, 1 can come and see you. I want
her to be useful and domesticated,
"And," 1 Interrupted, "what do yon
think she will want to be?"
Monty actually gasped. Then be recovered himself sufficiently to answer

Again, after a yard or two, a similar

Mrs. R. Stoddard, Delhi, Norfolk .Co., Ont., writes as

physicians, but found that they could only give temporary

to try it, and before I had used half a box found great

Why Franee'-i Conquest of Antwerp
la Ik nor i<d by Frouch Writers.
"Ohstlnnte nnd brave as u Dutchman"
was a familiar term In France 75 years
ago, when n handful of doggedly deter*
mined and fearless boy Hollanders gave
one moro proof of what Dutch courage
really means.
It was In September, 1880, that Belgium, which for 10 years hnd been under
the rule of u Dutch king, rose In revolt
aud demanded the aid of tbe other Euro*
pean powers In establishing her Independence and a setting up of a ltlug of
ber own. 3
As may well be Imaglded, the Dutch
took these proceedings very much to
heart, but a very excellent army wns or*
ganlned and the French government sent
Marshal Gerard and General St. Ayr,
with 73,000 picked soldiers of tbe grand
array; to see that the Dutch were turued
out of Belgium, bag and baggage.
Marshal Gerard at once called upon tbe
garrison In the citadel of Antwerp to
surrender.. -T/his was ou Nov. 29, and tin*
agiee the surprise of both French and-'
Belgians when General Chnssc, the
Dutch commander of this fortress, Invited his enemies to oome and take It,
Marshal . Gerard warned General
Chnsse that he would besiege and bombard tbe citadel. "Besiege away," was
the gallant Dutchman's reply, though he
bad only 4,600 men under him, white out*
side the walls his enemies numbered
On the ume 20th of November tbe
French opened lire on the Dutch, but If
the French made breaches In tiie wall by
day, the Dutch labored nnd repaired
them by. night, and from their lofty outlook they could iee and knock over every
gabion or .approach the French made.
With superior arms aad men the French
fairly raged.to see. themselves baffled and
checked at every turn and to hear all
Europe laughing at their situation.
Their humiliation waa complete, bow*
ever, when finally, on blowing up a lunette, they took 58 heroic Dutchmen prisoners and found tbem, instead of tough
veterans, the merest boys���so young were
40 of tbem that they hod never hnd razors, at tbeir chins, nnd their beardless
faces, wan from toll and privation, gave
tbem quite the.appearance of e band ot
sick children. '
At last, after 10 days' desperate fighting, after 20/100 shot and shell bad been
thrown Into tho citadel, General Cbasse
capitulated, and the French, very quietly
and rather shamefacedly, entered the
stronghold. Within It was literally torn
to pieces, and drawn up before their conquerors .was .this wonderful little com-

The following well authenticated story

yonng. Four days later, wben the nest
was examined, It was fonnd that the
little male bird, working alone for tbe
family, had brought home 48 birds���vis,'
six larks, -nine swallows, one bullfinch,
seven robins, six sparrows, six hedge
sparrows, nine blue tits, three chaffinches
and one wren.
What a spirit of dutlfulness along with
ferocity ta here exhibited on the part of
the small widower hawk, who evidently
thought that the best way of respecting
the memory of bis departed consort was
to feed her children well! And in doing
this how absolutely oblivious nature had
rendered btm of the feelings of the poor
larks, swallows, bullfinches and robins,
whose offspring���or the parents themselves���bis relentless parental affection
thus annexed! Tbe direst cruelty animated by tbe tenderest lovel Tbe most

Courage���Is subliino fath in heroic
action, wherein fear and selfishness
are lost in godly, consecrated soul-
purpose and effort from tho cause of
truth and righteousness. 1'ndaunted
by obstacles, serene amidst alarms,
scornful of policy, patWnt lu tribulation. Duty'B divinely inspired motive power. An essential ot true
character grentiiess.���MrB. W. . M.
Courage���The innate fearlessness
ot tho manly man (or the womanly
woman) which enables him to meet
life'B vicissitudes calmly, unflinchingly; which uplifts tbe soul, fires the
heart, nerves the arm aud sends him
forth to battle for his standard of
right���to do, to dare, if need be, to
die.���Mrs,  H. C. Sankey.
Courage is the spinal column of the
soul. It gives symmetry lo character. It enables its possessor to face
every foe in carnal and spiritual
warfare. Consistency is its right
hand. It lives through adversity;
and hope and fidelity are its com-
paiiions.���H. C. Johnson.
Courage is that quality and quantity of mind which enables a man to
stand firm to his duty���though he
stand alone. It Is that degree of intrepidity which says: "I am goinK
to discharge my duty to myself, to
my neighbfft*-, to the state, to the
church and to Ood, though the heavens fall while 1 am doing tt."���
Richard Hobbs.
Courage is thut Uod-given strength
of mind and heart which enables a
person to stand unmoved In the face
of danger, ridicule, contempt, loss of
friends, property and life; principles
which he knows to be right und jusi.
���C. II. Myers.
Courage ��� Strength measured ly
neither inches, age nor sex, that
scorns an evil action, whether moral
or physical; that dares to Uo right
despite opposition. Energy that valiantly overcomes each obstacle and

and frankness. A moral heroism that
triumphs over every weakness.���

In The Century there is an article
on "Life ami Society,in Old Cuba,"
made up of extracts from the diary
of Jonathan H. Jenkins, an American
miniature painter, who lived in Havana during the middle ot the century.   Mr. Jenkins says:
A mile and a half out from Huvana
Is a curious and painful sight���the
slavo-barracoons, where the newly-
orrived barbarians are confined. Here
were congregated not less than ^,-
000 negroes, ready for sale. Home
were entirely naked, others nearly
SO. Their heads wt>n�� dosn-Mhuvetl,
and their bodies so emaciated hy the
horrors of the "middle passage"
that they resembled beasts more
than men. Certainly they did not appear to be human beings as they
gazed about wildly, with anxious
countenances, as If bewildered.
I have often beeu amused nt the
preliminary instruction they are put
through after their arrival at the
bttrracoons. They are seated cross-
legged on the ground in a row or
circle, and the negro teacher passes
gravely before them all, giving the
lesson. lie moves his hands quickly
to and from his mouth, as though
putting something in il, saying
"Yammy! Yammy!" all of the negroes imitating and repenting after
him. This meant to eat. Tido-Jino
means something good, choppy-choppy to work, yarry-yarry to get sick.
The teacher then goes around with a
cup of native rum, and gives each a
sip in token of approval. This mi-
couth vncabluary, when understood,
Is enough to enable them to tabor
on the estates.
Before buying a purchaser examines them to ascertain their condition of health. If this appears satisfactory, ho gives the negro a hard
slap in the face, and if hc displays
no resentment, but looks up and
smiles, he is bought. When these
newly Imported Africans are first
taken, they are made to work but
very little for several months, until,
by observing the otlier negroes, they;
are gradually trained to labor; for
if they are discouraged by driving
them at first, they ore apt to commit suicide, in the belief that they
will thus return to Africa.
