perioiiB report of tbe last class is that
sickness had broken out in both the
British and Boer oamps in Natal. Four
hundred of tho British Cavalry horses,
it is said, have already been shot owing to the occurrence of glanders and
the disease is likely to spread with
mnch greater rapidity among rhe British horses than among tbe more hardy
ponies of the Boers, and it is thought
thot this will mean a considerable prolongation of the campaign.
A despatch from Chievely dated
Tuesday December 19th, Says that the
British naval guns abandoned by Gen
eral Duller bave been destroyed along
with the Oolenso foot bridge, thus preventing the Eoevs holding possession
south of Tugela River. The enemy

The British position at Freie is being considerable strengthened. Tugela
River is rising fast, and there arc
prospects of heavy rains.
Two hours' bombardment of Lady*

According to reliable native reports
the Boers lost two hundred killed at
the battle of Cotenso.
News that the Oolenso foot bridge
had been destroyed is believed to indi-
.cine thnt Buller ia more anxious to

any fur bet advances.
Despite the severity of the censorship hints are being continually received at the War Office of the spread
uf disaffection of the Dutch of G:ipe
Colony and Natal. The correspondent
of the Daily Mail says tho extent of
the Di'tch disaffection should make
the Imperial authorities realize the
magnitude ofthe tent before them.

Doubling Up.
Speaking of "doubling things" reminds
mu of a story I once heard of a little girl
whoDc name was Susie. This particular
Susie had a habit of saying "g-o-o-d,
good," nnd "w-o-o-d, wood." and sbe used
to look so funny wheu she spelled words
lu that fashion tbat, like Mary's little
lamb, she always caused a commotion In
tbe schoolroom.
So one day the teacher aald: "Susie,
dear* you mustn't say g-o-o-d; ssy g-dou*
blc-o-d.   Try and remember* my child."
Just then tbey came to the old familiar
phrase in the regulation first reader: "Up,
up, .lane! The sun is risen!" It was lit*
tic Susie's turn. Looking up with a cute
smile to catch the look of sympathy and
ap pro val she fctt sure sbe merited for re*

Ita UlacoTcrr Kill-** tha Great MM*
der Orowlaa Indnatry.
A striking example of how au industry
may be revolutionised by on apparently
imigniflcant discovery is shown In tbe
history of dyeing.
Before 1868 madder was used for the
source of a valuable dyeing material
which Iti roots contained, called alizarin.
By varying tbe treatment several colors
and shades can be produced. Some of
thewc are among the fastest and most
brilliant dyes known.
In 1808 over 70,000 tons of nadder
were grown. In 1869 two German chemists, Groebe and Llebermaun, were making scientific inquiries regarding its com*
position. They found that by heating alls-
arin with sine dust a body wns obtained
which, after much trouble, was found to
be Identical with anthracene. Anthracene
Is a well known body obtained In tbe distillation ot coal tar. It occurred to the
scientists, "Can alizarin be obtaiued from
anthracene?" After mouths of strenuous
labor they managed to effect this, but the
process discovered by them was Impracticable ou a commercial idle. At this
poiut an English chemist named Perkins
devised a process which could be worked
on n large scale, and iu a few mouths artificial nllxurlu, which so lately had been
looked upon qs i chemical curiosity, was
being produced by tbe ton, and its price
rose from a few shillings a tou to orer
300 times Its former value.
At first, owing to the difficulties In iti
nifluiifdciure, the artificial altsarln little
more than held ita own with the natural
product, but successive improvements
gradually cheapened It till the price of
mndder fell from #250 to $00 a ton, and
ultimately the artificial product drove It
from the market.
It was found that one pound of dry alizarin was H'i|unl in dyeing power to 00
pnmultf of madder. Now the great madder growing industry is practically ex*
tlm-t. Alizarin was the first vegetable
dye which wat made artificially.���New

"Going In and out of a moving street
car gracefully ought to be -part of a modem oiluciitlon iu deportment," said a iiiuii
about town, "It is one ot the most difficult feats in the world and something nl
which \m out of 1,000 arc almost certain
to make themselves ridiculous. I am peculiarly interested io the matter because
It bas resulted in m falling out with my
best girl.
"About a week ago I got ou board a St.
Charles avenue car this side of Lee monument and snw her sitting next to the
door, In front. Of course I started In
that direction, smiling and raising my
hat ib I did so, and just then tbe car
took the curve arouud the base of the
monument. I made tbree or four idiotic
lurches, grabbed the empty air and dived
head first into a fnt old gentleman who
was reading a newspaper. I must hnve
knocked the breath out of the poor old
chap, for be gasped like a fish, but I was
on my feet in it minute aud would bave
made the rest of the trip to the cud all
right If Ihe confounded curve hadn't been
whut Is called -a 'reverse1���that is to say,
tt crooks first one wny and then ths other
like a letter 8.
"I started on my second heat exactly
in time to catch lhe upper crook, nnd 1
promptly repeated my original performance with variations. I wound np the act
by fulling over the knees of a stern looking matron In spectacles, and she remarked in a tone audible to all hands
thnt sbe couldn't understand why drunken men were permitted to ride with respectable people. The young lady wns
scarlet with mortification, and to avoid
compromising her I snt down on tbe other side.
"Id a moment or two my hated rival
sauntered in as gracefully as a dancing
master and immediately monopolised her
society. The fellow was broke once in
tho north and did a couple of months as
a conductor, so be Is on to tbe curve, and
since the episode I have described be has

An ���aexpected SensatUm Experienced hy Hear Parsons.
Many persous who visit Niagara falls
find they have a great desire to Jgurf rom
various points on the several Plages or
from one of the numerous points of observation. For this reason, after once
having experienced tbe fascinating sensation that Mixes them on to death in
the deep aud rapid running waters, they
never go near any of the seductive points
without being in company with some one
wbo will guard them from harm as a re*
suit of wbat perhaps might be termed
by somo their weakness.
Many people who have visited Niagara
hare confessed that Ibe waters of tbe
beautiful river bad a weird fascinatldn
for tbem while standing iu places where
death would bo easy by simply letting go
one's hold and slipping into tba river,
and people saved from suicide there havo
admitted that they knew do reason why
they should end their lives, bnt tbe scene
was so delightful that It coaxed them to
seek tbe peace of death tbere.
In other places than at Niagara the
public comes In touch with folks who.
when on ao elevation, bave a proneness
to Jump off. and for this reason tbey keep
away from all such danger points. An
Interesting explanation of this desire Is
that given some yean ago by Professor
tjowe of tbe army balloon corps. He bad
frequently Invited a oewspaper correspondent to make an ascension with bim,
but each time the Invitation was declined.
Later ba told tbe professor of Ibe
temptation be had to Jump from high
places aod that he feared making an ascent. Por this be was laughed at. tbe
professor stating tbat tbe reason people
had such desires was that they were full
of electricity; tbat the magnetic current
la the earth was the attraction, aud that
what be was standing on carried tbe cur*
rent. He alio said tbat wheo up io a
balloon the continuity was cut off. Fi*
nully tha man made ao ascension aod
found tbat tha desire to jump was Dot
present. It Ii a curious statement-Philadelphia Hecord.

broken by n full of forty-five feet, uud
who has beeu nu almost totally help

use of his limbs, ami fully all bis

Tbe mun who has had tbis rare experience is George Roberts, a well-
known bricklayer, win lives at 82
Armstrong Avenue. At tbe time of the

walls of the bnilding now knowu as
tbe Toronto Opera House, but which
was tben the Adelaide Street Holier

foot dolled all their skill. It was found
utterly impossble to keep tho bones in
their places, and ut the cud of six
mouths Mr. Roberts left the hospital a
helpless cripple, with little prospects of
ever recovering the u e of the font. After a time, however, the bones grew together and he was thus enabled to
move about, though there was not the
least semblance of movement in the
joints. But with this change came new
troubles. Rheumatism of the most
agonizing nature set in,and hia nervous
system became a source < f continual
torture. Day after day, experiments
intended for his relict Mere made, dootor ufter doctor treated him, one kind
of imdiciiio after another wus used,
