The Nelson Tribune  says :������������������  In   running  over 'his  oxper'eiu ������������������-; in  Africa   pi i vale   Lee  gives seve.r.d inci-,-  dents   of .i'urlhci'   interest.    , Among  the a* is   the siciry of  the  Boer grut-ial  Dewet'.s leveuge.    I r' w.-is curri-iti ly re-  pnrlcil   among  the   I'ril i.-h Iroops ibat  Dew el's continued, persistence was not  because, he hoped to secure any special  successes against the British, but merely to giatify his private revenge.    Tlie  British had burned Dewet's farmhouse  and when the Boer  general  learned of  this lie said :     "1*11  destroy a million  pounds   woi-lh  of  EhtflUh properly lo  even up.*',  He started i:i and bow will  lie succeeded i> known  to all who haye  followed tin.1 ne.vspiiper , reptirt.-of  the  recent com se of   events.      One of   De-i,  wct'a acts  which   the  troops felt, more'  than anything else, was his burning of'  the mail train  at  the  point where the'  'railroad from   DeAat  to Johannesburg  crosses   the   Vaal   river.,-  Tt  was the  first   mail'sent  north after the tumps,  left'   Bloemfonfein   for   Johannesburg  vTV \i i  nnd contained four months' letters and ,,  papers for 70,000 men.   Dewel.wrecked '  the train and set  lire to the,whole outfit.     Private  Lee caine back over this  road   and   states   that   for two square  miles around'the bridge Ihe ground b.  cover j.1   with   half charred papers:    It  is   estimated   that   .several   .hundred  thousand letteis and papeis were-burned   in   pure   wantonness  as the Boers  made.'no attempt'' lo i eacl the letters or  proiit  by,any  of  the, correspondence.1   i  This hint the soldiers  feelings wcu se  thin a good licking.  According   to , Lee  modem   warfare  must lack all Ihe picturesque features  of the conflicts of.early days.' He  has  be.i.i under constant fiie for three days'  and  never saw   a   Boer   during   tli'at  period. ' In fact thi''first Boer  Lee  set ,  eyes on vvas one who came  into  camp  to  sm render.    He  say's   the.  regiment  would march intcva position, lie clown     <  and receive insti uctions to   fire  at  JLh^.  skyline   of   a   kopj-i   a   mile, distant.  Furthermore' they   never ' knew   how  many men'were engaged on each  side.  The,' Rriti.-'li army vvas dogged by spies,  nnd they were so adept at seen ring information that nothing  was'divulged'  save  what was   absolutely, necessary,  and that at the last, moment.   Thus  it  was that the Canadians would, go  into ���������  an engagement not' knowing  whether  there were 1,000 or 100,000 more Biitish  in   the   same   fight.     Two   regiments  might march  along the  veldt   within  two miles of each  other and each  be  profoundly   ignorant-of   the    other's'  location for a  week.   There  were, no  grand stand plays, and if the men  had  enough lo eat and diinu with sufficient  time lo sleep, they were satisfied to let  well enough alone.    TlieYpcople in Nelson were much bctier  informed  as   to  the general course of events than were  the  meinbers of   the   contingent.    In  fact the laller wcri!   profoundly  ignorant of all that was transpiring  outride  their immediate vicinity.  Judging from Privalo Lee's experience. I here is nothing very tenible  about a modern battlefield. He vvas  under lire many times but never saw a  man, Briton or Boer, killed, nor did be  ever to his knowledge fire a bullet  which killed a Boei. ait'nough bis Lee-  in Tapping's Opera House at 4 o'clock  and al--o al 8:30 at the close of the  cii'urch services.

There is nothing like " hard " times to  make the people dissatisfied with ex:  isting conditions, political and otherwise, and the country which is obliged  to appeal to the. country during a  period of depression, is in an unfortunate position, regardless of the fact that  the , government may not ��������� be in any  way responsible for the stringent situation. On the other hancl, the government which can appeal to the people, during a period of prosperity, has  at least the. great factor of a contented  people in its favor.���������Winnipeg Commercial.

It did  not begin.'ou tlie day of the fight, as they  say. Il began years ago, when Keato and  Jose ���������we'ru IK * lo hoys and before , Jose  .went tOjlho town (o live. It was duo to  tho jealousy which Jose bad for Keato.  ,My boy may have been at fault sonic-  times. No one i.s all perfect. But the  , ��������� main faulllay with Jose. He was jealous because he was not so big'and strong  as Itealo, and, later, when they grew 'older, ho was jealous of Itoalo's good looks.  It whs'.that which caused it all at last,  for it was that which lir&t caused Itealo  , to win the favor of Estafauio.  "Eycn it I, Ids father, do say il, there  is ' 11 oj li a n (I s o n 1 u r or braver youth in the  mountains' than Hen to. And Iteato lias  ��������� enjoyed the good thing.-i which have come  to me. 'When ho went to the "town to  take' care .of my business, there was no  one who could surpass him.  "So it was'that be attracted the attention of "Estafanie when bo passed the  home of.her father, yiio savv'liini, and  from the first she favored him. Iteato  did not know* her then, but,he saw her  nt the window, and her beauty aroused  the love' williin���������liiin. , He did not leave  the town until he found out wlio'she  was, and when he was told that she was  the daughter of (he alcalde he was iu no  way disheartened, for he'knew that my  position vvas such that he was the equal  , of the alcalde's daughter.  . /  "From that time Keato went into town  much.     lie   frequented   the   homes   of  those he know and who were known to  me, and ���������there he met Estafanie.    In a  little lime it.was plain that the love he  felt for the girl was returned by her, and.  though  nothing had  been  said,  I   knew  that   the   lime >of  the  wedding was  not.  far off,   for  i   had  spoken  with  the  alcalde and had found that he was willing  tiiat his daughter should marry niy son.  , "But at ilia I tiiiiir came the first sign of'  tho  trouble   which   is  ending  now,   for  what we did not know at first soon became plain, and that was that Jose also  desired  the girl  for  his wife.'   lie  had  known her,ever since he bad gone to the  town from the mountains, and, though he  had  s^aid. nothing.' he  had  made  up  his  mind  that site should  be bis. ��������� So when  'I'ciito came and found favor"'in her eyes  toe old anger and jealousy were roused  stronger thaii ever in Jose.    ������  -'.Mastors stood in this wise for some  time. Iteato.; had made up" his mind' lo  say upihing to EstafaiiiiV-until after, tbe  ijre.'U-Hiu-'h'ig'kt , in .holy week. 'He,'had  been'made cl capit.ni of the banderiileros  "At last Iteato b:.d so exhausted  the  great bull that the toreador was call--,*  in quickly, for it was plain that un! s* j  he came then he would have li:t!e to d.*. i  Keato bad so cxhausU-d lhe an'i.i::! th'.: i  there was little L'ft. and instead if i'io '  light being one. between the toreador :::id  the bull it bad really been one between  the capitan of tbe banderiileros and iht  bulIY  "Finally the toreador came. lie let  his horse bo gored hy the bull, though he  need hot have done it, and then plunged  his sword to the, hilt in the great beast's  neck. It was a good stroke, and it deserved the praise and applause that it  brought.  '���������Hut with the end of the fight came the  final trouble. As they were dragiring out  the body of the bull and the people were  leaving their places a crowd of the boys  of the town ��������� began.,to shout insults at  Iteato. They were angry with him because he was from the mountains, and  had.won the great glory of the day. talcing it from the men' from the districts in  the valley. They would not have done  as they did had it not been for Jnse, for  it was plain to all that he had set them  up to it and was���������in this way trying to  take a revenge upon Iteato.  "For a time Iteato, full of his victory, j  paid no attention to the shouts of the  boys, but at last one of tliein flung a clod  at him. At that Iteato turned and, catching the boy by the shoulder, slapped his  face and as he did so,said:  ".'Take that, to thy sneaking master  and tell him Unit-lie has only to meet me  lo receive it direct!'  "The boy ran away, and the other boys  followed him.'  ��������� "Wo from the mountains thought no  more about tho matter, and we went to  the inn, where.we had food and wine.

The bull vvas one of the  finest 1 ever saw. lie was a monster  "find a gray one', specially selected, for  you know that gray ones light the best.  "As they opened the door of his pen  Slid he came into the ring, Iteato, at the  head of his banderiileros, stood opposite.  Tlie. bull pawed the earlh and looked  around. Iteato advanced and waved his  crimson cloak, flaunting it even into the  hull's eyes. Thru the great beast sprang  for hi hi, but Keato was quick and leaped  lo one side and as tho bull sprang past  him planted two of the barbed darts'in  his shoulder.  "It was the first blow of tho fight, and  tho crowd in the benches cheered, and  we frdni tho mountains cheered most of  nil.  "Tlio other banderiileros came forward  to attack the ball in their turn, but Iteato  ordered them back, for be was not yet  through. This was where he made a mistake,- for it roused tlie jealousy of some  of tho banderiileros, and the townspeople  took their side, for they are always jealous of us from'the mountains.  '.'Again Itealo advanced against (be  bull,.and again, after lie had angered hini  until'it seemed as though the. great beast  was insane, did he drive more darts in  the great gray sides. Itut he did uot do  this without much danger to himself, for  he let the hull charge so close to him that  ns he finally leaped to one side the horns  of the ciazod animal caught his jackei al  the shoulder and tore it clear to (he cdure.  - "Again and nsaiu did Iteato face the  bin., di.ii ...en I'l.ji- ne escaped after lie  ha I driven nr re i.f his litlle spears into  the aii'in u"s Hides. The gloiy which  tiuy lad planned to win for ibeinselvcs  Was a.I gone lo Iteato.  o friends of Itealo. .So it was that it was  after sunset when we started upon our'  journey lp our homes. There had been  no more insults to Itealo, and none of us  feared trouble as we set out.  "Wo had gone beyond the 'town perhaps three miles and were where the road  passes through the first cut in tlie rock.  Iteato and I were a little behind, for our  ponies were walking more slowly than  those of the others.'' There was no  thought of danger,,in our mind, when  suddenly I heard a step behind me. I  turned'just in time to see a knife flash  in an upraised hand. I tried to ward'off  the blow, but I vvas too late, and it struck  me in Iho side. It did not kill, as it-had  been intended, but' it made a long g'lhh,  and I' fell from myfiiouy.  "Almost as the lilow was given Iteato  ��������� turned and saw it. Ho saw. too. what I  saw���������that' the man who struck it was'  Jose. Willi a shout he sprang after the  ���������fellow, but Jose turned and fled down the  road.    Itealo kept on in pursuit.  "1 called, and some of.'ihe men abcjid .  heard and came back. When they <--nw  me covered vvilh blood and I told (hem  .what bad happened.-they followed afier-i  Iteato as fast ns Iheir ponies could car:;;  them'.' They hoped lo overiake Jose la-  fore he had gone far because both he an.!  ���������Keato were on foot.

They knew, that (here  would be no justice for a mountain man  in the town, and they know, too, that  Jose deserved the death which Reato bad  meted out'to him, for bad he not tried to  strike" down Reato from behind and  wounded me'by mistake? So they closed  in on tbe police and (he friends of Jose.  The former they seized and held. The  latter they beat and drove away. Then  they took Iteato and brought him to me,  and all of us fled to. the mountains.  "And that is why you cannot see Reato  now.

They demand that he he given  up to them for trial, but wg will not do  it, for we know that there is no fairness  among them. They showed that by (heir  ftclions after the great fight.

The Largest.
A Yankee visitor to England during
the jubilee celebrations was staying at a
certain hotel 'in Liverpool., The morning
nftei- his arrival lie was taking .t look
round the liolei when'he came across one
of tlie waiters. Glancing up at the building, the Yankee said, ".Say, stranger, is
this-the biggest hotel you have here in
LiverpoolV" "Well, yes," answered (he
waiter, "I believe it is one of the largest
in Liverpool." "Oh," said the Yankee,
"then I guess we are ahead of you in our
country, for wo could put this place iu
the porch of one of our American hotels
and not be nt all inconvenienced!"
A short time after the 'waiter again
came across the Yankee and, wishing to
get straight with him, said, "Have -you
been in I:.v"siiiiigliam yet, sir?". ,"No,"
says the Yiiukee, "I have not, bet I guess
I will go before I leave (lie old country."
"Well," said "the waiter, "if you go, be
sure you put up at the Great Western
hotel. 'It'will suit you down lo tho
ground. The coffee room is a snoozer.
It is three miles long, and the waiters go
about  on   horseback."

The Brnin ami !\"aisi<-��. "
An Austrian savant lias declared thai
the human brain contains a "name center." He says that it is the oliice of this
cell to retain names.
A striking case which would scorn tc
confirm this theory occurred at Cleveland.
A brakcinan was .shot -by a conductor
and the former'could not remember'the
names of persons or things, although li���
could perfectly well describe the functions of all articles exhibited to him.
The surgeon probed, for the bullet and
found it in the exact spot necessary tc
affect the ��� remembrance of. names, according to Hie Austrian's theory. .When'
the pressure on the brain had been relieved, the patient remembered names
as well as ho had done before his injury
and told the name of his assailant.���
