Methuen intimated yesterday that he

especially in view of the fact that the
Berlin Journal, wWch regularly prints

Mora it could have been ascertained

had,ono hundred men killed at Grass

of Ladysmith.
Attempts will be made presumably id

that tbo enemy will bo the first to ar*

to intercept the British advance.

Tha War Office has  roceivnd   tlle
following    despatch   from .   (1en<>Wtl
Buller, dated Cape Townt Nov. 28I ���
General Methuenreports that Mod 'ei*

of the enemy thero and found thorn
STRONGLY ENTHEN'OHED
and concealed, with no means of out-
llanfiin? the titfttj'wliK'lt is at pr��ent
voiy   high.    The action   commenced
with tbe mounted infatry nud cavalry
inking  the lead at at 5 ."10 a.m.   The
Guards took up their position  on  tbo
right, while Ninth Brigade formed up
ou  the left and attacked tho enemy's
position in widoly extended order at
(i.JIO am., and supported by the artillery, fo-und itself in front of the
WHOLE BOER FORCE,
8,000 strong with two large guns and
four Krupp guns.   The Naval Brlgado
rendered   gtcat   assistance   from   the
railway after dcsjii-ritte  hard   (igVui-nf;
which   lasted   ten   hours.     Our  mon
were without water or fool during the
whole of the fighting and  working  in
the burning Sun. aud finally succeeded
iu compelling   tbo enemy   to retreat
from his stronghold.    General Curew
was   successful   in   getting   a   small
party across the river and was gallantly assisted by ."00 sapper*.   I speak in
terms of the highest praise of the cou-
duct of all who wore engaged in one of
hardest and most trying fights in  the
annals of the British army.    If I can
mention ono arm in  particular,  It
tbe two batteries of artillery."
Loudon, Nov. 30.
A special despatch from Windsor
says "General Met linen's despatch to
tho Queeoo nfter the battle of Modder
River says, that it was the bloodiest
battlain tho history of the past century.
The British shelled the euetnj in the
trenches, and then charged them with
fixed bayonets. The result was that
great havoc was wrought on the Boars.
The slaughter was something tremendous,
London, Nov. 30.
Twelve hours reflection on Goneral
Met linen's brief depptit-ch Ins only
served to Inorense public anxiety, and
sua pence. All kinds of speculations
are Indulged In.
In the absence of any indication as
to whether tbe Boors are on the south
or north bank of the Modder Iti ver.
tlio best opinions ore inclined to favor
the latter theory, aud it Is pointed out.
that the British must have been utterly exhausted if thay could not follow
up tho retreating Boer forces and crush
tbem, ae the enemy crowded over the
bridge io their compulsory line of
retreat.
Tbe Morning Post correspondent,
who has usually shown great   ability
exhaust the spirit of the British troops
by incessant harrassing."
A despatch from Ladysmith Rays:-*
���'All -ate well and cheerful. The Boers
nro not shelling to day. Wh have nd
fear that tbey .wi'l attack the town.
Our position we nave made very strong
with redoubts and breastworks, and
we look forward confidently to the
ultimate result."
London, Dec. 1,
The Times publishes tbe following
despatch irom Natal, dated November
27*; ���''Beyond reports from Estcourt
that firing wus heard iu tho direction
of Lndyfitnitb Monday, tlmro ti not a

that he is expected to be all right id

Kimberley. Nov. 24th, by way At

bridge ti in their hands,
out the danger of the b-*-idL
too small for the fore*) which crossed
on pontoons, 'i'lie importance of this
pcntooiiing operation is proved by the-
f.-ict that General Polec.ire, one of
only two generals was solecie.l to
superintend it.
No word has since arrived either
from General M?thueu or Natal. Speculation is therefore useless. It is believed thnt Goneral Methuen will be
immediately reinforced from Cape
Town by two batnlllonb of infantry, a
detachment of cavalry nml a batten
of artillery.
Colonel Albrecht, whoif�� a prominent officer in tbe ranks of the Boor
army, and doing the engineering wot*'*-.
of tbo enemy in opposing General
Methuen, was formerly an officer in
tbo Austrian army. He entered the
Free State army brfore the war broke
out and soon brought Its artillery to a
high slate of pfllcency, Ho is known
as an able Strategist,

The afternoon is given (JVfer to resting

absolute necessities allowed tbem.
As one correspondent describes, the
British aro fighting nn omniprosont
but almost Invisible foe. Unstlntetl
admiration is every *A'hereoxpi'Ossod for
tho splendid work of Moth uen's galluui
column. With a force really inadequate be has marched n't niUrt ami
fought threo battles within seven days,
coming out victorious tu all i Li ol-
engagements.
Whilo no credence is given ro the
rumor that Ladysmith has fallen.- it
scarcely served to Impress tho public
wi'-h tha danger of what isatill within
the bouiid*i of possibility. Such misfortune would probnlily produce a formidable revolt among the Capo Hulch.
Tho Daily News sayst���" WlinCerer
comes, we must brace our nervei to
meet it. Uufortuna'.oly, today locks
as if wo hnd a very stem and earnest
struggle before wo can pod our Wa>
clp*ir to the final victory."
Tho Times saya: ���''Tho fact Hint
thus far tho Boers bave b-v.n able to
repel our attacks by inadequate forces
upon thoir well-chosen position, while
kooping tbo Initiative iu their own
hands, is a decided hindrance to tbe
British advance. Ample numbers are
our greatest need and the decision to
send out sixty divisions Ins corrniuly
not bsen taken too soon, now that disloyalty in Capo Colony has to btt faced.
Even greater efforts will have to be
nade as tho only wtie cours.. to turn

looting tbe farmsteads in all directions.
Tbe Natal Boers, encouraged by the

Dnrban, Nov. 22.���Today's
ment at Mooi River found the British
almost entirely on the defensive. A
correspoueut of the Natal Advertiser
says the Boers' second shell fell within
a few yards of a detachment of British
infantry, that Ihe shell is little or no
damage, and that firing continued for
about half an hour at intervals of from
three to four minutes. According to
tbis account the British troops prepared
witb the utmost promptitude and advanced undt r oover wherever possible.
The British urtilleiy was iu position

the reports of skirmishes there, but
give no details as to how the engagements happened. The speoial correspondents are ouly permitted to describe
Major General Barton's camp at Mooi
rvier vaguely as "large" or "ample." j
One correspondent snys that 7,000
Boers are within 25 miles of Howiok
Falls, near Pietermaritburg, and thnt
the inhabltauts are fleeing to the capital. Evidently a considerable force of
tbe enemy is now within 80 or 40 miles
of Fietermaritabnrg but it is offloially
announced from there that no auxiety
prevails, tbe garrison numbering *
thousand men with six gnus. Gen.

otber than those of gain. Although be Is
but 30, be has gained fame and some for
tune, and be Is so industrious that he flies
from useless words und time consumers���
tbnt Is to sny, women nml bores.
A year ago, just after tbe art exhibit
closed, Jacques determined to go on a
sketching tour. So be packed bis trunk,
mwlsted by bis friend. Rugeue de Lssii,
uud was bidding adieu to bis studio when
tbe ncrrunt entered wltl? a note. It was
a "iii- little note, daintily perfumed, and
tbe address was written In the most dell*
cute hand imaglnuble. lie read it, frown*
til and, crumpling it up, threw It on tbt
floor.
"Confound the women!" he cried,
"What's the mnttcrV" asked bis friend.
"Why, I'm such on unlucky fellow,"
replied Jnet|ues. "There's always soma
woman or otber bothering mc, writing
about bow she ndmires my paintings and
bow she'd like to see me nnd all that sort
of tiling. Jnst os If n man should say he

"Rut," snld Eugene, who wns reading
tbe note. "It's very well written, I assure
you, full of most delicate wit. Wbat Aft
you going lodo with it Y"
"Oh. you literary men!" groaned
.Inclines. "What am I going to do with
It? Why, burn It of course. What do
you suppose I om going to do with it?"
"I'll tell you whnt to do with it," uid
Eugene.   "You're going away"���
"Yes."
"Then give It to me."
"Why, whot'll you do with Itr said
Jner^tes, with a stare. '
"Well, I'll play painter." replied Bu*
iretic. "I'm not much of one, but 1 can
dnuli n little���enough, nt nil events, to
deceive n woman In love, and I'll find out
who "Mmc. la-conic' Is. That's only part
of her name, I'm sure."
So il was settled. Jacqnos Bruhiere,
pn inter, set off fur Switzerland, nnd Eugene de Lasil, man of letters, remained
to personate hlra. bnt only for Mme. Le*
onie. Other visitors were told the truth
���thnt the master was gone.
Al Inst she came. Eugene's romantic
fancy bad painted her as young and
lifitiiiiful. but she wns more than tbat.
She was divine. Rhe wns a brunette and
hnd ihe most delightful nose, the most
sparkling eyes, the most glorious hair and
the most adorable little hands nnd feet
that Engene bnd ever seen. He flattered
himself thai he wns correctly made up
fur his role. His velvet blouse and jaunty cap were a little too clean perhaps,
but lhat was a good fault.
Mine. leeonle wnnted her portrait paint*
ed. nnd It was rery difficult for her to decide bow It should lie done. She wavered
loug. One day sbe would be Ompbnle,
the next sbe bad decided that to Ik- represented ns Salome wiih necessary to ber
peaee of mind. But when Eugene bad
made bis preparations his fickle goddess
decided that Delilah was the character
that suited her, and then she would wander around the studio and drape herself
with the barbaric stuffs used by long
gone models a nd handle tbe curious
weapons and examine the porcelains, and
tben she would sny tbat sbe was weary
and would come the next day, and she
would go. leaving Eugene de Lnssi deeper In love than ever.
As for bim. be waa In a dream. Ht
hnd retired from the world. At bis own
iiunrlers bis door was dally stormed by
publishers, by managers, by printers'
hoys, by creditors and by friends. But
no one knew where be bad gone, ne bad
told bis servants be was going nwny, bnt
had not told them where. It was wrong,
decidedly wrong, but bt took a certain
ferocious joy lo It when be thought how
he himself bod once pursued these same
editors and managers.
Eugone bad at Inst discovered that bis
Inamurnta was a widow, wealthy and of
good family. Her full name was l*eonl*
de Nores. He had nover told bis lovt,
but that ihe wm blind to It was Impossible, yet the was certainly blind to bla
painting, for sbt expressed ber admiration or It witb ao enthusiasm that made
Eugene wince. But oue day, wbeo be
wuh, as usual, attempting to transfer ber
to canvas, a particularly atrocious tree
which he Introduced In tbe background
tilinctcil her attention.
'Maciiuca," said sbe, "don't you think
thai yon nre-tbat you are-well, tbat
you're losing a little of your skill?"
"Whnt!" shouted Eugene.
"I menu-that la���I'm afraid tbat 1
keep yon from roar work so much
tlmt"-
"I only hop* that yon mny keep ne
from II forerer," returned tbe amorous
Eugene. And ao tbo dangerous moment
bussed.
rs t t t s ��� ���
Hut this state of affairs could not last
forever. Ont flat day as Eugene was
tented upon a divan thinking of bis lady*
hive, who had just departed, who should
��BRBBSa===S==S*^====5S^B=KS5M
enter bnt Jaeqnea Bruhiere. Tea, thtrt
be was, with his attendant carrying his
umbrella, bis sketch books, hU camp
stmils. his baggage, e time artist Just
from tbe country. The false oot trembled as be tbouaht that hit dream waa
over. Had he been a Borgia ht would
have slain his friend, Aa ht was not ha
pressed his band warmly and bade him
welcome.
But how conld be extricate himself
from hit dilemma? How conld bt answer to a high spirited woman for tht dt**
ception ht had practiced upon her? Aa
to persuading Jacqoes to content to aay
arrangement for keeping ap tbe deception, that was oat of tho question. Where
bis art was concerned tht painter would
prove as deaf as a pott and as unmanageable aa a balky horae. So Eugent
was pusxled.
Finally a bright idea occurred to him.
"Why not," thought he* "girt a comic
turn to the affair? If properly done,
Leoute will be disarmed. She Is easily
moved to laughter,, and then I will explain and beg ber forgiveness." '
Alas! Poor Butfme's Idea was not a
happy one.
The next day when Leonlt appeared It
waa Jacques who met her al tbe door.
He was In blouse, cap and carried palette
aud brushes.
"Can 1 net M. Bruhiere?" tbt asktd
with some little surprise.
"Tbat Is my name, madam," replied
the painter.
"You Jacques Bruhiere!" aald the, with
au amused Inugb, aud ahe pushed by him   '
and entered tbe studio.   "You the great
painter?  No, not" and ahe seated htrself
and looked at bim defiantly. -
But If sbe wat at btr eaat Id tbe studio
bt wis more to. Htr quick woman's eye
noted this, ood on tht easel thtrt wat al- -
ready beguu a canvas In which sht recognised the matter's touch. Leonle was
becoming III at ease. She picked np a
little Hindoo god which stood on the table beside ber and Angered It nervously.
Her hands trembled, tht little monster
slipped from them and dashed In pieces
on the floor.
The artist stepped to the, wall ond rang
tbe bell The door opened, and a servant
entered clad In livery and wearing.an
apron, rendered necessary by the fact of
his cleaning brushes.
"Did monsieur ring?" bt asked.
Iaeouie stared at him and grew white.
"Yes, Jean," replied the artist "Gather up the fragments of this trifle, which
madnme has unfortunately broken.
Now," said he, turning to Leonle, "It
madnme will kindly Inform me to what
I ewe the honor of this vis"���
Ue stopped. Her- wblte. set face, her
staring eyes, frightened him.
"A luckeyt" sbe hissed, "a base lackey!
And I bave loved this heartless, cruel,
lying wretch!"
With n audden Impulse of fury, sht
snatched up a pretty toy, n silver, poniard, wbich luy upon the table, and
sprang nt Eugene. Quick us a flash the
artist dashed between tbem. But quick
ns be was, he was too lute. Tbe poniard
struck Eugene In tbe aide, Inflicting a
deep wound. At this Leonlt uttered a
shriek and fainted away.
Eugene's comedy hod become a tragedy.
"Truly a pretty sight for the studio of
an honest, hardworking painter," groaned Jacques Bruhiere, aa he gaxed upon
the two prostrate forms. "This comes of
obliging your friends. Catch me doing it
again;"
e        e        *        *        eet
Tbree years bad passed. Leonle wat la

Sngoite, whose house wat always filled
with tbe literary men of tbt day, and she
invariably secured tbe literary Hon. She
wom making her way through tht brilliant throng toward Leouie.
"My dear," said'she wben she reached
her, "yon haw read ttint novel of which
all Paris Is talklng-'Les Deux Princesses?* "
"Yes." said Leonle, "It la a charming
work."
"Do you know Its author?"
"Eugene de Lassl? No. It be here
this evening?"
"Yes, and 1 want to present bim to
you. Ah, there be Is. M. de Lassl I And
in another moment there stood before Leonle���the false painter.
For a moment be hesitated, but the old
spell reasserted Itself, and she.found herself listening almost against ber will to
hit pleas for pardon, and he pleaded hit
cause most eloquently.
"I am half Inclined not to forgive you."
the laid at length. "Yon acted abominably.   You know you did."
"I acted like a fool ond a knave." said
Eugene, "and you ought nover to pardon
mc, but you will, won't you?"
"Well," said tbe beauty tern (reluctantly, "if you'll be a very good boy"���
"Yea."
"And never deceive me again"���
"Never."
"And   never  paint  any   more such
wretched trees?"
"Never."
"Tben I forgive you for having played

"But I wnnt to play |t again/'
She looked at him inquiringly.
"1 want to be your servant forever."

; At Niagara Falls the Philadelphia
company is constructing a large plant
for the manufacture of calcic carbide.
If the electrical furnaces there cau
produce the carbide fn sufficient quantities to supply the demands of a largo
city, and on an economical basis, there
can be little doubt of acetylene's futuvo
success. Scientific men agree on these
points, but somo are not so confident
that the enrtu desired can be accomplished as are thofi interested in the
Philadelphia company,
The carbide will be brought to Phili
delphla in lumps, then liquefied, placed
in cylinders and distributed to householders, who will connect them in their
cellars with nervice pipes from the
street mains, whence the supplylof city
gas is derived. No change in existing
gas fixtures will be necessary, except to
substitute for the five feet per hour
burner a tip through which one-half a
cubic foot of acetylene will flow in an
hour. A one-half foot burner, with
acetylene, it haa beeu demonstrated,
will give the same illumination as
three ordinary live feet burners using
city gas, A cylinder six inches in
diameter and nix feet long will hold
sufficient acetylene to light an ordinary
ten to thirteen room dwelling three
months.
Based upon photometric tests 1,000
feet of acetylene light la equal to 12,500
feet of city gas. Bays of acetylene
light are claimed to diffuse to greater extent than any other known illuminant.
Under them all colors and shades are
almost as accurately distinguished as
in* sunlight.
In a circular issued by the Acetylene
Light, Heat and Power Company, of
Philadelphia, these advantages are
claimed for the product; "It gives
more light, throws out less heat, consumes less oxygen and can be produced
at much less cost thau other illuminating gases. It is capable of being stored
aa a solid in the shape of calcic carbide,
as a liquid or as a gas. It may be
shipped long distances as carbide or aa
a compressed liquid gas manufactured
from it, and in the latter state may be
applied to all purposes of isolated lighting, especially as in railroad trains,
atreet cars, carriages, bicycles, steam*
ahips or sailing vessels, street lighting,
and it may be used in dwellings, stores
or manufactories, its application for
the latter purpose permitting the manufacture of a gas sufficiently low priced
to be used for fuel or heating purposes."
When the company begins the distribution of cylinders of light through'
out the city consumers will be charged
80 cents per thousand cubic feet,
Philadelphians pay $1 per thousand for
gas manufactured by the municipality,
but promoters claim 1,000 feet of acetylene are equal to 1-2,600 feet of city gas.

not the first time that four aces hnve
brought nliout n tragedy, but probably
the first time thnt it has been caused just
this wny.
Quabue was one of Chief Miguel's band
of rebellions Indians who, with tbeir lead
er, were in the county jail for n month or
so awaiting their trial ou a charge of assault. Quabue wiih a pretty good Indian
nnd wan allowed considerable liberty. Hi
became acquainted with the turnkey, and
being a jolly fellow wns made a sort of
comrade by the petty uflicfals.
Quabue wns playing a gnme of poker
with Walter Seott, a fellow prisoner. Scott
dealt the cards, and Qunhue picked np his
hand. It was a put one. Qunhue looked
nt his cards and stretched out his hand to
raise the ante, when Scott was startled at
seeing his fellow player's face change in u
ghastly way. He Hwnyed In his chair a
few seconds and fell over on the stone
floor dead. An attempt, was made to.give
him medical care, but it wns unavailing,
aud the doctor pronounced it a case of
bursting a blood vessel leading to tbe
aorta.
A spectator noticed thut the Indian
though dead, still clutched bis cardu lu
his band, and on extricating them from
hfs death grip they were found to consist
of four aces uud the joker. Quabue evidently thought be held live aces, ami it
was more joy than he could stand.���Los

The Rail tray Signal Tower.
The signal tower, rectangular, with
rows of windows on all sides, stood at the
Intersection of many brunches. At this
point the trunk line resolved itself from
four tracks Into two, nnd here tbe gravel
track, which looked us if it had been laid
by a palsied contractor, left the main Hue
uud respectability behind and hobbled out
of fctgh't behind the signal station with an
Intoxicated air. Beneath tbe tower, to the
light, a donble tracked brunch lapped a
fertile country beyond the sandhills.
And beneath the signal tower, to tbe
left, a single tracked branch, ouly a mile
long, brought South Sumach, one of those
tin-some towns that manufacture on u
water power, it) touch with the middleman. This petty brunch���as if the case
hud been with petty people���-Hindu more
troublo ihim all the rest of the lines put
together. The signal men found this out.
So Sumach junction bad Its place In the
world, ami perhaps It waa a more Impor
taut one than that of many u complacent
and opulent suburb.
The heart of this little community did
not center, us a thoughtless person might
suppose, in the church or I he commander)',
or the grocery store, or tne school, but In
the signal lower. It was the pulsuof the
section. It was thu life blood of thousands of unconcerned travelers, whose lives
uud happiness depended ou the intelligent
vigilance of three men.    These three took
turns up there tn the tower, locking nnd
unlocking switches and signals, until one
might expect thein to faint, for dizziness
and confusion.���Scrihner's Magazine.

The Mau With a l'aii**.
He was a brave man, for bu ut tempted
to curry a large pane of glass across State
street when the afternoon rush was at its
hest. For tt few- moments ho hesitated at
the edge of the sidewalk, and then be cut
itt between two delivery wagons nnd
reached the cable truck. Ho waited for a
train to get by, and then be waited for u
hansom cab, and a big truck brushed him
from behind.
Presently tbere seemed to lie an opening, He had crossed the two tracks, Bev
eral persons had stopped nt the corner to
see how he would manage it.
After he had crossed the tracks be shift
ed the pane of glass to another position.
It stuck up a foot above his head. A dray
loaded with barrels bad shut him off. The
druy moved slowly, and the man with
the glass became indignant.
"Hurry up there, will you?" he shout
ed.
He was paying so much attention to tbe
dray that hu did not see the florist's wag
ou wheel up from behind. Tbe large damp
nose of nu overworked horse caught him
iu thu shoulder. Hu stumbled forward
against the hind wheel of the dray, nnd
It was all over.
The man hnd a small jagged piece of
glass In each hand. The policeman and
the drivers laughed in a sympathetic way,
and that was as much satisfaction as be
ever got.���Chicago Record,

A SCIENTIFIC CURIOSITY.
New York's Building Within a llulldlbi
That Interests Engineers.
New York has no place tbat Is ns Interesting to engineers aud students of engineering as tbe big cable building at tbt
northwest corner of Broadway und Houston streeet, which fs one of tbe power sta-
tious of the Broadway cable road. This Is
nn eight story building, w ith a granite and
brick front and au interior of steel, being
really a building within a building. What
makes the building a scientific curiosity Is
tha fact that, though the ponderous operating machinery of the station is at work
unceasingly night and duy, Its working
does not produce the slightest jar or tremor
In the building. There are 550 tons of
machinery, all told, in motion when tbe
*. ���Ubi works, including driviug wheels,
shafts uud cable drums. The shafts of
the driving wheels themselves weigh SO
toils each, nnd two of the driving wheels
are 82 feet In diameter.
Tbe machinery Is 05 feet below the sidewalk level, and In Itself is a wondrous
sight to a layman. A visit to the power
room makes plain at a glance how tbe engineers have solved the problem of eliminating the'jar and tremor of the mighty
steel power makers. The builders have
simply reared tbe hnge superstructure of
stouu and steel on great steel pillars that
are nearly 1', toot In diameter. These
pillars rest on a foundation of concrete
and do not come In contact at any point
with the foundations upon which the cable
machinery is built. This latter foundation Is u separate and distinct one of steel
plates tilled in with concrete, with big circular boles nt different points. The foundation pillars of the building pass through
these holes, and there Is a free apace of
bnlf a dozen Inches all around between the
pillars aud the steel and concrete fouuda-
tiun.
Kven If the giant machinery did jar,
the jarring could uot be communicated to
the steel pillars of the building, aod without such commuuicatlon It would be impossible to produce a jarring of the walls.
It is an equally astonishing fact to a layman thnt tbe machinery Itself does not jar
in the least. The mammoth shafts of the
driving wheel beat the air and produce a
sensation like thumping upon the ear
drum of the visitor to the power house,
but tbat ts nil.
If a visitor places his hands ou the walls
or tbe street columns, he can rendtly discover thnt there is not the slightest tremor of either walls or pillars. There Is a
big store on the ground floor of the building over the power room, aud every one
who goes in the store is amazed to find that
the floor does not shake. Tbe visitor can
hear the machinery going below htm, but
ho cannot feel any motion despite tbe
enormous weight of tbe machinery,���New

Tho 1-1 foot addition to the length of
the curling rink is now oomplete, and
tho other changes necessary will be
iliiisled in the course nf a couple of
days, so that should the weather permit tho rink will he in full swing hy
the end of noxt week. Bythe change
the curlers will occupy the centre of
the rink where tho skating was last
season, nnd tho sknters .will have n
cnurse nround tho outside of the rink
sixteen feet wide, and about 11 circuits
will make a milo. So that, should
skaters eo wish, hy connnting how
often they go around the rink during
un evening tliey can tell how many
miles thev huve gone, another new
feature of tho rink is that a number of
the windows havo been plixcd un
hinges to tit in the colder air from the
outside while the rink is being flooded.
Th* rink company deserve great credit
for making the alterations as it makes
the skating course fur superior to
what it was lust season, and the curlers have just as good as before.
