The secretary of state his us yet expressed no opluion in tbis regard. Mr.

correspondent from the standpoint of
the government He diJ not wonder,
he said, tbat the Inmber interests of
Michigan wauted to do Bonn -thing to
relieve the condition of affairs-brought
about by the Ontario enuctiueut regarding logs. He said emphatically,
however, he did not sec how the ad*
ministration could nnder existing laws
do anything for their relief, even if it
shonld be deemei wise to take any step
toward retaiiatioo.
"lam sure," be continued, "noex*
emtive officer of this goverument
wonld oare to authorize what is proposed by tbe Michigan men. I am convinced tbere is no authority for it under the tariff laws of tbe United States.
If congress curo to amend the law ia

Ontario logs, well ond good. If an appeal is to be mado it should bu mado to
congress aud net to auy exeoutive department of tbe government. Congress

In tbe forced march westward on

crossing Tricbanlte drift, live miles

the Boers are bclding a position five
miles from the river.
The o her morning papers are out
with extra editions confirming the dis*
pat.h from Speurman's Farm to tha
Times. The Daily Telegraph's correspondent nnder yesterday date says:
"I am permitted to wire from Spearman's Farm tbat Gen. Lyttleton yesterday afteruooj ferried and forged
Potgiester's Drift and seised with little
opposition a line of low ridges a mile
from there. Dnring the night a
Howitzer battery was carried across.
Today from Mouut Alice, near Swarta-
kop, naval guns and Howitzers effectively shelled tbe Boer position, whioh
is strong. General Warren also today
crossed tbe Tugela six miles farther to

arms in the fnco of a hot and heavy fire
from Boer camion and rifles. He has
effected a most satisfactory lodgement

is contained in an ezolusive dispatch to
the Times, dated yesterday. He followed np tbe movement by shelling tbe
Boer trenches.
This uews completely disposes of tbe
statement tbat Sir Charles Warren's
force went iu tho direction of Weenen,
aud it tends greatly to restore confidence in Oen. Buller's tactics. Tbe supposition tbat be had divided his foroe
into three columns had given caose for
aniiety. It is now seen that snch ao-
oonnt waa erroneous, as General Boiler's forces are concentrated.

How He was Conquered by a
Tiny, but Vicious Enemy.
Toronto, December 23.���Among the
older generation, in Mulmur and
Mono townships, Simcoe oonnty, no
man is better known, nor more highly esteemed than William Hall, formerly of Mono, bnt now a prominent
Toronto ooutrtotor. Mr. Hall, in hia
younger dar* wa* a carpenter. He
was also the strongest man in the two
townships. All athletic sports were
bis delight, and in them all he excelled. His reputation a* a mechanio
-mt equally high.
Some years ago, Mr. Hall waa
caught in a terriflo rain storm, while
returning home on foot, along a country road, a portion of whioh was
"corduroy," running through an extensive swamp. In the darkness, he
got off the rood, and stepped into the
slush and mud through which the
road waa built. He sauk to the waist,
and only with the greatest difficulty
was able to rescue , himself. Next
morning he was in a raging fever, the
result of tbe exposure, which would
have killed half a doxen ordinary
men. It was several weeks before he
waa well, and when he left his bed
his left leg waa four inches shorter
than the right. Rheumatism of the
mott extreme type bad followed bis
stormy adventure, and, as the doc-
ton said, crippled him for life.
Only those who have suffered with
Rheumatism can imagine the tortures
he endured. Dar and night, the
agony burned into his nerves and
muscles, makTng his life a ceaseless
round of torment. Doctor after dootor treated bim. Some proposed to
chisel a piece ont of the bone of the
leg; others said nothing oould do
bim any good. Th* surgical staff of
the Weetern Hospital, and a* score of
visiting physicians examined him and
decided ho oould never be cured. One
doctor >bled him, drawing away a
large quantity of thick, stringy, dark-
colored blood, heavily impregnated
with pnt. Even thia did no permanent good- Liniments, oils, and scores
of "patent medicine*" were tried
withont avail. Every one belloved
there wa* nothing for it bnt to suffer
till the end. Mr. Hall fonnd greater
and greater difficulty every day, in
moving abont. To walk a few yard*
was hard labor.
On* day recently he read ot Dr.
Arnold's English Toxin Pills, and
concluded to try them. He did so,
ud wa* amazed to And that his pains
atevr markedly less. He purchased a
farther supply of th* pilla, and used
them. Ashe did so, hi* sufferings
ceased entirely; strength and flexibility returned to th* onoe stiff and
tortured limb, and health came back
to him in all Ita Tiger.

A Xaeh Debated Qat.tlon That Will

There is sn old ssying thnt nny man
can subdue a wild animal by merely Busing Into its eyes. Yet It Is a much debated question whether such a tiling la
possible, nud there nre some bunters wbo
believe thnt tiie human eye ba. absolutely
no power over wild animals,
A Smith African sportsman once determined tn put tbe question to tbe test.
Approaching a large ostrich, he gnzeil
fixedly at it, and to bis delight tbe mesmeric glance seemed to meet with Immediate success. The bird crouched nml
flapped its wing, nervously. Some hours
later, however, tbe man's body was found
with the ostrich alternately sitting and
Jumping upon it.
Another believer In the human eye experimented on a wildcat confined in n
laotojiicitl garden. He afterward con
fussed tbat but for tbe wires of tbs cage

To dlstlngullfl lietween venomous atj.il
harmless snakes is easy in practice, but it
is diltienlt to explain in words alone, its
there is one external characteristic whicli
distinguishes tlieni. It is rather n peculiar, varying union of mnny separate
marks that brands tho dangerous reptile.
Generally speaking, all snakes may In-
divided iuto two grout classes���those
which have the head covered with numerous small scales and those which
bave It covered with large, regularly lit-
ti'd plates. Leaving out the clfpldiu nnd
the poisonous sen snakes, wiih whicli
the Im liter will hnve nothing to do, all
snakes with small head scales move
about by night and those with the large
plu tea on the bead hy day. This may he
known by their eyes, for the lirst hnve
vertical pupils like Hip cut's, while those
of the hitter are generally circular in
form. Tho loug. active day snake, gild*
log about from bush to busk or hurriedly
taking refuge bouuatli some protruding
rock or tree stump, is harmless. Even
should he Ho coiled In tho sunshine lie
will lice from approaching danger. But
a serpent nicely colled in some secluded
nook which instead of flcelug gathers
himself closer together is most probably
dangerous, particularly if he lie more or
less market! with a suggestion of irregular crossbars or whitish ur dirty yellow
ami darker brown or black 1st), This is
the characteristic coloring of our must
dangerous snakes, the rattler, tbe copperhead ami tiie moccasin.
The following points embrace all the
peculiarities of our American vipers, and
the last two nre especially noteworthy as
the crowning proofs of venom:
(1) Moving about at dusk or by night,
generally ou the ground, and very rarely
ascending trees or bushes, i-i Seldom
flying in alarm, but rather coiling for defense, lit) Colors generally subdued lu

Just as the lightbuoy is a signal of
danger to sailors, and the red light to
railway men, so has nature equipped
individuals with danger signals of
one kind or another when their
physical condition is not quite right.
It may simply be a tired feeling, a
slight cold, weakness of the muscles,
fickle appetite or some other sign���
slight at first���which indicates that your condition is not a
healthy one. If the danger signal is not heeded, serious results will follow and a complete collapse may occur. In nine
cases out of ten the direct cause of the trouble is impoverished
blood, or weak nerves. . You need something to brace you up
���to make your blood rich and your nerves strong. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is the only medicine that can do this promptly
and effectively.   They strengthen from first dose to last.
