Whilst no terms except unconditional surrender will be accorded,  the only individual punishment inflicted on the units composing the  Boer army will be that of falling  into line in the great march of progress and doubtlessly many of them,  in after years, wheti they have experienced the blessings of true  civilization, of which Great Britain  is the leading exponent among the  nations, will wonder how they ever  could have been such insufferable  idiots as to fight against it.

CANADIAN .PATRIOTIC FUND  Lord   Dundonald,   who has just  added lustre to   the .record   or the  Household Cavalry, gives   force  to  the Daltonian   the'-ry   of heredity.  His grandfather, tenth earl, was not  only an officer of actiou-of the   first  order, but a highly   celebrated   in-'  veulor. The present peer has invented  a   valuable   'gun   carriage,;] wa* 'linH1sed t0 a keeil    r   which is in use iir the present cativj Qj. somel'uing out or ti'ie ordinary,  -,paign. The family name of the|mid-the -:esult was a house, cram-  .Dundonakls is Cochrane,   and 'tliey imed fu11   with standing room only,  are a standard old Scottish   family. | for  the  i,{te .comers.     .Handsome  Tuesday ^ Night's    Entertainment  liclipses   all    Previous   Attempts  - ancl   a  Handsome Sum Is Added  to the Fund.  The,, second entertainment for  the Fund benefit was given in Rice  & Hastie's hall on /Tuesday, 'night  and was a "hummer." In some  mysterious way public expectation  1  anticipation  The loss pf a thousand men in  * each of the unsuccessful attacks on  ' Coleuso and Magersfontein is not  too great, considering the strength  oftheenemy's position. At Albue'ra,  during the Peninsular War, when  the British under Beresford carried  tlie ridge which was held by' the  best troops of France tinder ..Soult,  no less than 8,000 French and 7,000  of the allies were killed or wounded  during a conflict of only four hours.  When the positions were reversed at  Waterloo, the French being , the  attacking force, the Old Guard of  France'lost nearly 10,000 men 'iu  less than ten minutes in the grand  final but futile attack on the British  Guards. It must be evident, there;  fore, that the Beers ,aie not altogether the crack shots generallv imagin-  ed. '  ���  . ,A great deal is expected of the  corps of gillies and stalkers from  Highland Estates which Lord Lovat  has- organized. The Highlanders  (150 in number) will be mounted  on their sturdy little ponies, ancl  will start immediately" for Sotich  Africa.  The ant-hills in South Africa  cause serious annoyance not only to  the soldier from home, but even to  the-experienced Colonial. In the  dark they look exactly like men  crouching* down, and an unoffending  ant hill has frequently been ordered  to "advance and give the countersign." However, they have their  compensations, for they make excellent camp ovens for cooking  Tommy's dinner.  The great amusement at Lady-  smith is to set up straw, figures for  the Boers to waste their ammunition on. Once a Lancer of straw-  was set on a rock to draw the enemies' fire. Its composure so exasperated the enemy that they even  turned one of their big guns on ' to  it. Another time a bogus battery  was run up in the night and the  Boers blazed away for hours at lay  figures and imitation 15-pounders  before they found out that they  were mistaken.  Our commandeis appear to be  very unwise iu granting facilities s^  readily for the Boers to come near  their trerches vvith the white flag.  According to a correspondent, when  the Boer ambulance went into Lady-  smith some time ago one of the disguised men was the crack gunner of  the enemy, who, on their part, lake  very good care to blindfold Englishmen. Of course, when the gunner  got back, he knew ju.'it where to  plant his shots to do tbe most damage. In strategy the eneny can  give our generals several points and  a beating. _  programmes were freely distributed  A stage,- the?full width of the hall,  with , curtains," .was in. place, and  with? the lavish wealth of flags dis  played, gave a tout ensemble easily  metropolitan in its elegance.
