THE  BROWN  SYSTEM
OF   DISCIPLINE.
What  is known  as  the Brown  system   of  discipline  has   been  adopted
by   the  New  York,   New  Haven    &
Hartford   railroad.    Tbe  plan     was
tiicd   several   years   ago  by the  Boston & I\la,*tne lailroa'd. It consists of
keeping a caid  record of the merits
and  demerits,   and  differs  from     the
old  system in  that it inflicts no suspension  penalties.
The   first   offense,   if   not a serious
one,  is  maiked with an "R,"  which
means   reprimand.    Two more reprimands  can  be placed  against  an offender     'before he receives a demerit

British people I put  myself under the protection of their  laws, which, I claim from your royal highness as the most powerful,  the most constant and,the most generous of my enemies. ���������'  A  maii'lv     confession   of defeat  was  (hat     made     by (he Duke or Gordan  at the capitulation ol EdinlUrgh' Cas-  b'e in 1089    'to the     Earl 0f I .even.  "Gentlemen and     soldiers." he said,  "I know not     where I,have been un-  <ind to any of you, but if 1 have ev-  3i- wronged     any man in your  ranks  let    h'nv speak ere     we part forever.  Do not     brawl  with the newcomers,  for \j-uu arc too f   ew lo conquer and  loo many to   ���������"sacrifice."   Gen.  Gordan's message of defiance was:  -'When  you, Mahdi, order the Nile to dry up,  and walk     across  with your  troops,  and come into  Khailiuini  to me, and  take uie,     then vviH     I surrender the  iovvn  to you  and  not befaie.'. Little  as   we know  of the details  accompa-  nving the     fall of Khartoum, it may  oe safely assumed that  when -ihe relief  expedition      reached that city  to  lind th   atit had fallen into the hands  of   the Mahdi      two days   previously,  ilordan  bad  surrendered nothing   but  his life.  An unsatisfactory capture was that  of Sebistapol;     since the enemy bad  'led,   leaving behind  a smoking   mass  of ruins.   Zutphen fell through a ruse  iol"liers     being introduced     into the  'own  apparelled   as  Flemish  country  women,     their     baskets   "filled wilh  ���������"words'and-    loaded  pistols.   One of  the     most      bloodless  capitulations,  "onsidering the nnpoi lance of the for-  ttess surrendered, ,was that of Giba-  lallar^wrested     from the Spaniards  in   1701,     the total    loss  in gaining  this    important     acquisition   lo  the  crown  being  CO  men  killed   and   2bfi  w'ouiided .   On the oilier hand,   Luck-  now was the     icene of fearful bloodshed when      the'seige was  taised by  ���������Sir Coliii'     Campbell, no quarter being given.   Tt     was    said that after  the massacre     of Cawnpoi'e the soldiers divided among them-the tresses  of a murdered     gill and    swore that  for every hair ft her head  one Sepoy  should die.   At  the surrender  of  the  I'ast.ile,      in   the    Frenco  tevolut.oi,  there  was no  righting,  the governor,  ���������de. Launay, aflei making a hesitating  defence, capitulating on     tilie promise  of safety for all  the garrison.   A pic-  luiesque surrender av������s  that of  Cel-  ewayo,   who  was captured on  August  '.������,     i8'<(>, by    Major Martei", during  ihe Zulu war.   Troops had been pursuing the chief since-August 13,  and  he vvas finally tracked  to a deserted  kraal in the     Ngama Forest.   Major  Alarter himself     rode to the door ot  lhe hut and called upon C'ctewayo to  surrender.   "Enter,      was   the reply,  I  am your prisoner."   From  motives  of prudence     Marler,    refused,  again  summoning the Zulu chief.   'Ihereupon  the     unfortunate      Cctew.iyo.   wcatk,  Avcary,     footsore,     and very s ck at  heart,     came     forth from *il'c* kraal  and repulsing Avilh a remrrant. of dignity     the diagoon     guardsman avIio  ventured to lay a hand on him, said'  "White     soldier,   touch      me  not,  T  .surrender to your chief."  The capitulation or Cronje and his  1,000 men  on  the anniversary of .Ma-  juba Day,   1900,  will  be  remembered  as long as     any incident, of the Boer  war.   An  onslaught made by the Canadians, avIio     had entrenched themselves SO yards     from the "Boer posi-/  tion at the     riverbed at Paardebcrg,  was greeted, not by a storm of musketry,  as had been expected, but by  the. appearance     of. three white flags  hastily thrust     above the parapet ,|f  the Boer trenches.   Then, a horseman  appeared,      carrying     another  white  flag, and intent on arranging a. meeting      between      the  general's.   Forth  from  the  laager ca.me  presently   two  i.icn  , one mounted on a while pony,  iu his hand      a sjamibok,  -wearing, a  brown  felt  hat and  a, huge overcoat,  nothing of his face visible but a thicket  of hair     and two' glrsfing sparks  for, eyes.   This  was Cronje,   who had  kept the     British army     at. bay for  ten days with no  better shelter than  could be afforded him by a deep riverbed.   "I am glad to meet- so brave  a man',"     said Lord Roberts; but he  refused  to accept     anything short of  unconditional     surrender.        Cronjc's  reply    to the  terms of     capitulation  was short,    but effective;      '"Ja," he  blurted out.���������London Globe  Union  Brewing Co  NANAIMO,   B.

The"ride up  the   Bow  valley   this  morning,   . the  first of thc\dx hundred miles of mag  nificence through, which they will pass  before reaching     the Pacific  Coast,  was  a delightful  one  and  everybody  was charmed and impressed with the  overpoweii |ng grandeur of the  Rockies.  Mr. J. S.  Henry,  of the Philadelphia Press, says:   "To describe   the  impressions of our trip through Canada  would  be  impossible.   It     has  been  a wonderful, revelation.   Official  advertising    reports, graceful'litera-1  lure  and   attractive  photographs  all  failed  to    convey  the actual conditions we have met,' or in any degree  picture  H12  wonderful, scenery.'  The  Canadian Pacific Railway as  the pioneer across     this part of the continent, has  beep an epoch, maker'- rnvf  contributed to the wealth and" happiness  of  the world.    The  millions    of  acres of wheat   that have come under  our  personal  observation  testify  to the benefit the whole world     has  realized   from   the enterprise       and  foresight   ofthe  C; nulian  lailroads.  This  wheat land can only be appreciated     !iy      U13 world  as  products  loach   the   markets.   Mere  statistics  an 1  illustrated rei orts cannot      do  justice  to.     them.    Personal  visits,  such as we have paid, and the great  cargoes  of grain  that  furnish.     the  food of nations  bring a proper  reali  zation     of  the  possibilities  of  the  great Canadian Noithwcst.   It is difficult;    to keep      with'rn  the bounds  when spea'iing of the millions      of  acres     of wheatficlds, hut language  simply fails when we essay a descrip  tion    of-:the--7scenery opened   to us  through the Cenadian Rockies by the  Canadian Pacific Railway.
