The Boers aro attackini? Mafeklng.
They aro reported to hare alflmdy sot
fered repulses. It is generally admitted that Vryburg cannot stand a strong
Boer attack.
It is anticipated the onemy will attack simultaneously Dundee, Olencoe.
Ladysmlth. Tho defending force in-
eludes lhe Natul mounted infantry and
carbineers, all remarkably smart and
workmanlike. The main Boer force of
11,000 men la at Smdspruit. Much
discontent exists here owing to the
prince of suspected Boer sympathizers. Troops are kept uudur arms, and
volunteers are oidereil to sleep bootod
and spurred, ready for instant call.
The telegraph line between Kianipan
and Marltzana has been cut, nnd a
strong command of Boers has-ocenpied
*he Kraatp&n railway siding. The
foregoing report is considered to be
correct, as late last night tho war
office had news of a British advance
from Lidystnith, and was hourly expecting further intelligence.
The Times says: '-It is idle to ignore the fact that if the Boers mado
a determined attack on a largo scale
iuto Natal, as appours to be the case,
a sustained condition of masterly inactivity minht become hopelessly out
of tbe question. We have no means
of estimating exactly the numb r of
troops at Ladysmith, Oloncot* and Dun-
doe, and if we had It would not be
expedient to discuss the point. But if
12,000 Free State troops are to bo
reckoned with, in addition to Commandant General -^ouUrt's contingent, the situation is undoubtedly
graver than ir seemed yesterday, and

���The Boer comm��ndf wbich invaded
Natal through Laing.i Nek, and after
etfsnpyinp Newcastle advanced to Dim rr-
hsiihor, lotired on Ignano yesterday
evening, their transport service being
reported defective. This will delay
indefinitely the anticipated and hoped
for assault on the'strong British position ut Glenooe. The Natal invasion
wns made En three colunis at dawn on
October 12th, through Bothas pass,

the objective point of the invaders being Newcastle. The Boots* utilized
several thousand natives who were

ca.itionsrre being taken for the defense of PietttiratifUfcbnrg and Durban,
in tke remote contingency that the
enemy may elude the vigilance of the
British at the Ladysmith and Olencoe
It is Atsumed the refusal of tho
Boers to accept ft battle in Natal last
week, when General Sir George Stewart White advanced and endeavored to
draw them through Van Neonenes
.Pass, Indicates their unwillingness to
commence hostilities. On the other
hand the Boers nre probably too nstuto
to play the British game at the risk of
an engagement on ground whnre artillery could be bi'o'ight into play aud
cavalry moved rapidly.

and 18 British have been killed in a
battle at Mafeking.
Cape Town, Oct. 17���It is reported
here that the Boers have bad an engagement with another armored train
from Rhodesia.
Pretoria, Oct. 15 - General Cronje,
after warning the women and children
to leave Mafeking, opened fire upon the
town with cannon this afterneon. No
response whs made.
On leaving for South Africa Sir Red-
vera Buller said: '-I dial I not be

Free State Unrghers Have Crossed the
Orange River Into Cape Colony
and Occupied Phltlpstown.
Vrytmrg Oot. 18.���A body ot Boera
bas cut the  border  feuce advanced to
the  railway  and  cut  the telegraph
wires.   Two thousand Boers  are
ocoupyiug the railway Hue.
London Oot. 18.���When the cabiuet
meets at noon today it is evident the
Bosr are preparing for a simultaneous
invasion at five separate points���Laiug'i
Lobatso. Therefore !t ia almost impossible to guess the place of campaign.
A dispatch from Durban, dated
Thursday, 8 o'clock a.m., announces
that tbe Boers seized Albertina station
and demanded the keys, whioh were
delivered to them by the station master, who reached Ltidysmith on a trolley. The excitement nt Liidysmith ia
iuoreasiugfand the troops are read} to
act at a moment's notice.
The Daily Mail's correspondent at
Lobatsi, telegraphing on Wednesday,
says: "The Boers are on the border
preparing to cross at three o'fclock today. A messenger seut to the Boers
asking them to spare the women and
children, has beeu detaiued.
It is now definitely known that the
British government sent no final proposals to Pretoria. Tho Transvaal's
ultimatum forestalled tbat intention.
So far as tbe news received thus far
shows, no shot bas been fired. The
evacuated distriot between Obarlestown
and Newcastle has an area of 200
square miles, and consists chiefly of
hilly moorland, sparsely populated.
There ia no abatement in the antl-
Knglish feeling on the continent.
Dispatches from Durban, Natal, confirm the report that tbe Orauge Free
State authorities seized a Natal train
leaviug Ladysmith yesterday morning
for Harrismith. They also stopped a
train dno to leave Harrismith in the
Free State burghers, according to a
private message just received here,
have crossed the Orauge River Philips,
town. Their object 1b supposed to be
to cut the railway at Do Aar Junction,
whioh is considered nn important
aslrategetio point.
The San, in this city, prints a rumor
that the government will prosecute certain Irish members of tha house of commons on a charge of high treason in
couBequeuoe of their pro-Boer attitude.
A Pretoria dispatch dated Ootober
11, sent from Loureuzo Marquez, as
telegraph communication between tbe
Oape and Natal 1b undoubtedly inter-
rupted, says: "Mr. OonynghamGreene
this afternoon said good-bye to President Kruger and his officials in hiB priv-
u*.c capacity. He and his staff will
leave tomorrow by two special trains.
Martial law was proclaimed at 6
o'clock this afternoon, and the British
residents without permits mnst leave
the Transvaal within eight days."
It la Feared Her Wreck Haa Swamped
During a Hard Blow.
Montreal, Oot. 18.���-It is feared tbe
wreck of tbe steamship Scotsman has
foundered in tbe recent gales. The
steamship Montrose, according to a
telegram from Quebec, pas. ed within a
mile of the place where tbe Scotsman
was wrecked, and the officers scanned
the rocky shore with their glasses, but
no sign of the ill-fated ship conld be
seen. It it feared sho has swamped off
the ledge which supported her, in a
hard blow, and has snnk.
A good deal ol uneasiness is felt regarding Oapt. Skirmish-re, the first,
second and fourth officers, as it is understood they were staying on ship*
board. Wrecking togs sent from Rail-
fax were due at tbe wreok on Monday
or Tnesday. It she foundered since
then it is probable the oaptain and officers are safe. These tugs wonld then be
due in Halifax in a conple of days at
most.' ' .There is also a possibility the
oaptain and officers embarked on an
outgoing ship or went ashore on tbe is
land. It was stated this morning by
agents of the Dominion line that tbe
baggage saved from the Scotsman is on
tbe way to St. John's, Nfld., on board
the schooner Northern Light and would
not arrive at the latter place until today. Negotiations on the subject of
the amount of salvage have not yet
been oonclnded between the Dominion
line and the oaptain of the vessel.

Conaent or Canada Gjlv.i, to a Tern'-or*-*-.
London, Oot. 18.���Sir Louis Henry
Daves,Canadian minister of marine and
fisheries, informs tbe Associated Press
that he has given Canada's consent to a
temporary arrangement of the Alaskan
dispute. This has practically settled
the wbole matter for the time being, at
the main features of the same were
originally suggested hy the United
States. Colonel John Hay the American seoretary cf state will sign the latt
papers within a few days and Mr.
Reginald T. Tower British charge
d'affaires iu Washington will ratify
thom on the part of Great Britain. Sir
Louis said this evening: "The terms
agreed upon ure simply a ll*>e drawn
across Obilkat Pass. It haa absolutely
no signifioauoe except that we hope
thereby to avert local frioton. Ul
course an urrval at even a temporary
agreement ia satisfactory."
"So far as tbe original contention it
concerned we are jnst as musty as ever.
I see no signs of reaching an immediate
settlement. Canada relinquishes no
claim by her assent to this temporary
arrangement and has not the slightest
intention allowing her original contention to lapse, tt U not onr purpose to
permit tbis new understanding to ex-
tend a da; longer than it is necessary.
The faot tbat I am returning to Canada
must not be taken to indioate that a
settlement will be reached by the date
ot my leaving England. My return it
necessitated by matters altogether ont.
side the Alaskan affair. I am however
working in conjunction with the col-
onal office upon the case. It will not
come before the joint high commission
unless a diplomatic settlement is previously attained."

London, Ool. la.��� A dispatch to the
Daily Telegraph from Ladysmlth,
dated Wednesday, is alone among the

has been started by the Boers in Natal.
The correspondent says: "Free State

The absence of news from tbe Oape
since early morning is not due to an
Interruption of the cable, bnt to an
iinmense pressure of worll, the oablea
being nearly monopolised by British
government dis atches, whioh take
precedence of all othen. Only two
cables run to Oape Town from Europe,
and the oue on the western coast is very
slow, so that practically all the work is
thrown on one Atlantlo oable, whioh
means that an exasperating delay will
occur repeatedly during the progress
of tbe war, and that the newspaper
dispatches will probably be very
London, Oct. 18, ���The solidity, If
not the placidity, of tke English character was never more exemplified than
it was in London last night, with England face to face with war. Although
it was only 5.80 o'olock wben Ur.
Chamberlain's secretary handed to a
representative of tbe Associated Frets

had Ihe news. Then was not a traoe

announcement of the result on the
night of the flnt race for the Amerioa'l
onp. It Is a faot that tbe enthusiasm
in London signally falls to compare
with that shown in the smallest American oity npon the announcement of
the war with Spain.
Ur. Wm. T. Stead, editor of the Review ot Reviews, in the course of an
interview, says: "I maintain that this
war is being foroed upon the Boers by
men who have never forgiven Majuba
Bill. Iu my opinion owing to Great
Britain's unpreparedness, hostilities
dnring the next two month! will re.
semble the international yacht race off
Sandy Hook. Aa there cannot be any
serious fighting dnring tbat period
hostilities will be aa dull as yacht raoes
without wind. We have plenty of
time, therefore, to count the cost and to
reckon np the guilt of a contemplated
wholesale homicide in Ihe Transvaal.
Long before Christmas, I take, the fool
fury of the jingoes will have evaporated."

It wu past midnight, and Edward
Hurcombe, the famous actor manager,

lamp wu turned low, for he fonnd a dull
light Invariably assisted his meditations,
and he was particularly anxious to arrive at some definite decision upon a perplexing question that faced him thst
evening. The sudden Illness e( both an
indispensable member of his company
and the understudy hnd left him In a serious dilemma, for who Could replace the
absent player? It was a part that required special aud peculiar abilities, aad
he had already mentally ticked off the
names of a dosea*to so men as being
quite unsdapted tor the vacant rote,
wben he heard the sound of some one
rushing up the stain. He started and
rose to his feet, for his fsmlly had long
since retired to rest.
"Quick! Hide me. They're coming!"
A men had swung open the door, closed
it after him, aud burst into the room
panting and out of breath, his hair disheveled, snd a blight stream in his eyes.
"What's the matter?" queried Hurcombe, hurriedly. "How did you get

wonld have been heard all over the house
bad not the room been soundproof. Hurcombe had hsd It made so purposely,.as
he uow remembered to his consternation.
"Any fool could tell that," replied the
actor, coolly, with the air of one receiving au expected visitor. "But there's no
occasion to hide. You're as safe here as���
as anywhere."
Again the man looked at him qneerly,
detecting with the sharp wits ot lunacy
the double entendre In his words.
"Sir, I believe yon. But you don't
know whst I've been through. Mad!
They would wish me mad! They've
yearned for It, prayed for It, but I'm not
mad! Tell me, I'm not mad!"
He had drawn closer to Hurcombe,
who took advantage of the change of position to edge nearer th* electric bell,
which, If he could. but reach, would
arouse the household.
"My dear sir, I've already told you
you're laboring under a delusion in supposing enything's wrong with yonr nien-
tsl balance. Sit down a moment and I'll
get yon some refreshment. You're tired'
doubtless." And he went fo ooen the
doer, but lt was locked.
Hurcombe glanced back at the man.
His only reply wss a cunning smile
which overspread his countenance.
"I see you've taken the trouble to fasten the door," slid the manager. "That's

knew all lnsdmen had stories to rclato
and that It humored them to listen. It
wns also a method of gaining time.
"Yes! Do you know what ft Is to love-

The actor smiled. He did���on the stage.
"To love Is to hate," continued the nocturnal Intruder, who, following Hur

Cold, aad Bare Haad*.
Many people mirvel why tbey suffer u
frequently with cold In tbe bead. The
matter has pussled .even the omniscient
doctor, and bis only txpltnttion wu
thit aome persons were constitutionally
Inclined that way.
Investigation shows, however, that It Is
all due to the hands. No mttter bow
warmly yon clothe the rest of the body,
you readily catch cold If you leave the
hands exposed.
The reason is very simple after all. Of
course every one knows that the blood
and blood vessels contribute a sort of
hot water warming apparatus for ths
body. As the hands are more exposed
than otber parts, tbey receive a more
liberal supply ot tbe hutlug fluid. But
this blood is immediately chilled and returned lu au Icy state te tbe lungs. Here
It sett np inflammation, with the natural
consequences of congestion, which Is
commonly called cold. If you take care
to wear gloves on nny dty that Is rather
chilly, it Is astonishing what a lot of
colds you will ward off.���Cincinnati Enquirer.

Aa Described hy Two Champion Mara
Wbo Met liy Accident.
Uncle Ebe Bingham came up from
Hickory Corners a few days ago, and I
do believe that he is the biggest liar that
ever struck Chicago.* Perhaps that state*
went is a little rash, but, at any rate,
Uncle Ebe displays a great quautily of
country grocery store training.
I was coming 'up from Springfield yesterday on the Illinois Central road, and
when the train stopped at Hickory Cor*
nets Ebe took a seat which was partly
occupied by a drummer and directly in
front of me.
Ebe kept quiet as long aa he could, and
then, turning to the trareling man, remarked:
"Purty crooked road, this,"
"Yes," answered the drummer "but
I've ridden on roads more crooked than
"So huv 1," said Ebe. "Rid on roads
so crooked that at times the passengers
could shake hands with the engineer."
At this the drummer gazed wondering-
ly at Uncle Ebe, who assumed a superior
manner, which evidently nettled the man
of grips. Finally the latter spoke.
"That's nothing. Why, I remember one
night we were coming up through the
mountains on the Pennsylvania line when
n porter, who was making his first trip
on the road, came running from the rear
coach yelling frantically for the conductor to put on more steam. He declared
that there was another train right behind
us and that a reur end collision was
about to occur. 'Her headlight is ouly a
few feet behind us,' screamed the terrified porter.
" 'Oh, go back to your coach,' said the
conductor calmly, 'that's our own en*
Ebe winced.
"Sure that wasn't the moon the porter
taw?" he asked of the drummer. Then,
without waitlug for an answer and with
malice aforethought, he related the following:
"Just so. That was a purty crooked
road, but it was way back in the sixties
that I rode on the crookedest gol darned
road in the country. Yes, it was in the
fall of '62 that Bill Holcomb and me
went out west.
"Them wus the days that trains used to
make speed. No sich thing as crnwlin
along at CO miles aa hour. Never less'n
100 them days.
"Wall, anyway, we were crossln the
Rocky mountains one night. Dark? Why,
it wuz so dark that tbey.bnd to put a
double row of lights In tbe coach before
we could see.
"Bill and me wus sitting up purty late
playing keards In the sleeper. Finally
Bill says be guessed he'd go to bed, and
that wus the last time I saw him alive.
"I walked up into the smoker and
hadn't no more'n got aot down when an
awful crash came, I wuz knocked clear
Into the front end of the car. Winder
glass rained all around me, and I cud
hear tho cries of the injered.
"Thiukin of Bill, I picked my wny back
among the broken timbers to the sleeper.
Ye might think I'm a liar, but I'll be gol
darned if our own engine wasn't stickln
half way through the coach. Poor BUI
had been struck by the cowcatcher and
lay dead on the floor.
"Everybody suld that the curve wbich
we were goln around at tbe time the accident happened wuz too short, but I ner-
er could understand sich things."���Chicago Democrat
Mystery of Gray Halt.
That a man's hair sometimes turns
gray very suddenly Is a fact well known
to physiologists. Statistics, however, on
this subject arc very rare, and for this
reason a famous German sclenMst recently requested a number of physicians
to send him full details of all such cases
aa might come under their observation.
As a result, Dr. Morits, the well known
authority on diseases of the throat, hns
published in The Archive a full account
of such a case.
The subject, or victim, Is a day laborer
about 36 years of age. Some time ago
he waa very nearly fun over by a railroad train, and naturally be received a
severe shock. On tbe following morning
a friend asked him What he had done to
his hair, and, looking In the glasx, he saw
that there were two distinct patches of
white on his hend, one exactly in the middle and the other just above his right ear.
Each patch of white hair covers a space
of from three to four square inches.
The evident conclusion Is tbnt this sudden change of color was caused solely by
the fright which the man experienced
when the train flashed by him within a
few Inches of bis body.
Tba Cara of tbo Eyes.
On arising In the morning tbe eyes
ahould be bathed gently In cold water���
20 "passes" are said to be decidedly
strengthening. While using them closely
they should be rested at intervals of an
Hour or two, for tbe strain of constant
rending or sewing Is like tbat of extending the arms at a certain height immovable. Imagine, then, tbe taxing of tht
eyes, which cannot complain save after
years of irreparable neglect
Whon dust settlei In the eyei, warm
water will soothe tbem of any Inflammation. Rose wnter Is extremely refreshing, but it should be bought In small
quantities, as It keeps but a short time.
Five cents' worth will give a dally eye
bath for several weeks. Ten leaves and
glum water were tbe eye tonics which our
grand f�� titers used, but In these modern
days uf absolute hygienic and antiseptic
simplicity water, especially In a distilled
form, is considered powerful enough.���

The Goethe society of Vienna discovered the real story that lies back of
Goethe's beautiful creation of "M.gnnu,"
which has passed Into so many songs and
even into an opera.
This story runs that In 1704 an Italian
equilibrist named Coratta went to Goet-
tingen with bis troupe. In his company
was a child, evidently of good family,
who took her part with marked reluctance. The report soon spread that the
child had been kidnaped by Caratta, but
he fled and escaped all injury.
