This apparently clinched matters,  for at daylight the letter ��� signed by  General Cronje,. in which he stated  that he surrendered unconditionally,  was brought outposts under a <iag of  truce.  In my reply I told Cronje  he   must  present himself at my camp aud that  his foreof-   must   come   out   of   their  laager nfter laying down   their  arms.  By 7 ;L in. I received Cronje and dispatched a telegram   to  you   announcing the fact. ^Iu tlie course of  a conversation he asked me for   kind   treatment at our hands aud   also   that  his  wife,    grandson,     private    secretary,  adjutant and servants might  accompany him wherevor he   might   be  sent.  I reassured him and told him that  his  request  would  be  complied   with.    1  informed him   that  a   general   officer  would be' sent witli to  Cape  Town  to  insure him beiug treated   with   proper  respect while en route.    He. will, start  this afternoon under charge  of   Major  .General Pettyinau,  who will hand him  over to the   general   commanding   at  Cape Town.  The prisoners, .who number about  3000, will be formed into commandos  under our own officers.

He htared
Tbe Ctrlllan Knew "More About the
"Wax* Than the Captain Did. '
"They are telling an amusing story
at the expense of a well known Texas
militia captain," said a visitor from
Galveston at one of the hotels. "The
captain is a prominent business man
who has a weakness for soldier clothes
and gold lace, and, while he lias never
seen' any service except' at armory
drills, ho considers himself a first class
strategical expert. '*
•'As the story goes,  he was on the
train   that   hauled   Miles'   special   car
through   from   El   Paso  last Tuesday
and at a stop on account of a hot box
encountered the general walking about
smoking   and   fell   into   conversation
with him without suspecting,his identity.   The talk presently turned on the
Hoer   operations   around    iladysmith.
and Miles made sonie„casunJ comment
Avhich   failed- to   meet   the   captain's
views.     Thereupon   the   latter   called
Ulm down, '
" 'It may look that way to a civilian,'
Le said, 'hut'to a-man of military training it has quite ii different signilienrice."
"Thereupon he pulled out nn old envelope and a stub of pencil and pro*
' ce-eded to give his companion a lesson
in' strategy, which .was only interrupted by the ring-fug of the bell. . When
be regained his, seat, he narrated the
incident to a friend.
" 'It's astonishing,' he said, 'how
people will venture positive opinions
on subjects about which they, know
nothing whatever. When I explained
things to that old fellow, he was completely flabbergasted—hadn't a word
to say.'
"Just then the conductor came along.
" 'Saw you talking to General Miles
just now,' he remarked.
" 'Miles!' exclaimed the captain.
•What Miles?*
"'Why,'General Nelson Miles of the
United States army. We are carrying
his Car this trip.'
" 'Good Lord,' the captain groaned,
'I thought he said liis name was Giles!"
'"I won't vouch for the exact accuracy,, of this 3*ai*n," added tlie man
from Galveston, "but something of thc
kind undoubtedly occurred, for the
captain is being most unmercifully
guyed and declared yesterday that he
would slug anybody who mentioned
the subject again in his presence.''—

had hoped   to   find   Mabel waiting   for
him aud was surprised and disappointed
when tho footman told   him ,Miss .Fen

about an hour ago, and Miss Mabel

first time, by the side- of the murdered
woman inrSouth Andley meet, and tho
fcecuud time coming from Mr. Keighley
Gates' rooms in tht* Motropole. Why
should this man have come with a message purporting ,to he , from him, and
how could he hav-a induced Mabel Jo

Brett'*-, head with bewildering rapidity, but for nn answer, to them ho
fought in vain. Ho , paced xip and
down tho room, striving to iinrl some
clew (o this fresh mystery, . and at
length, giving it up in despair,1 he 5-tootl
by the window, each moment fondly
hoping tbat tho" next would bring him
tho si^bt of ..Mabel returning from a
bootless errand
The uiinntee pa.ssod with awfnl slowness. Five o'clock .-?trnck, but she hud
not arrived, nnd Brett turned hopelessly
away.frpm the window.
At a quarter pas-t Mr.,Fen ton came
in, and Brett at onco told hi in what had
occurred and something of what he
"Good God, Demean! Who is there
who could wish to harm her?"
"Heaven only knows, sir,"' said
Brett, "I havo been trying iu vain to
conjecture, but,.we muse loso no more
time. I am {,'°'nS ac once to give information to the polico, and i think it
would be as well for yen to break the
newa to Mrs. Feuton. Ad present she,
knows nothing."
Brett hurried off to Scotland, Yard .
He had been n frequent visitor there of
late, but the mission that brought him
thiii time was to him tho' most terrible
of them all. He' returned with n detective, who took minute p-articulars
from Sonnies, the footman, about the
strange visitor and what ho had said,
and who learned ,from Mabel's maid,
what hor mistress would, be likely to.be
wearing. Armed with these Bcant particulars the man took hia leave, with
tho assurance that every power tbe law
possessed should bo set in motion to
trace the missing one.
It was a terrible evening for' that
hous«» in Do Vere Gardens. Tho sou was
a pristy'sr, awaiting his trial for murder; the daughter had been foully decoyed. And who oould tell of her fate?
Mr:* aud Mrs. Fentou were in a state
of utter prostration under the last ter*
riblo blow that had been dealt them,*
aud 'Brett waa almost besido himself
with tho knowledge of his impotence to
help tho woman whom ho loved more
than life itself
Brett passed a sleepless nigbfc aud by
9 o'clock next morning was again with
tho police. Their inquiries had been in
vain. Every likely spot had been search
ed, all the hospitals had been visited,
bnt without result, and the clew they
had was too slender to hope for much,
b'U(jce.**s from it.
With   a   weary  heart   Brett   torned
away, determined to take a step which
had ocenrrod   to him  during the night
It was a   bold   and   probably a   useless
ono     In his calmer moments  ho would
have at once dismissed tbo idea,, hut he
had now worked hin.eclf T.p into a tr.r
riblo state of excitement aud had resolved to leave no   step uu taken that might
possibly lead to a clew
He walked Htraight to tho Merropole
and iihked for Mr Keighley Gates. He
found that gentleman at* breakfast in
his druiuing gown -He raised iiis eyebrows when ho saw who his visitor was
"Yon are nn early caller, Captain
Brett," said he ;.*'',
"I must npGlogize, Mr. Gates, for
coming at this honr, but I feared 1
might miss you if I called later The
fact ia, Miss Feu ton has been abducted.'
"indeed! L am sorry to hear it, but
you don't think i have had a hand in
tho matter, do you:'' ,  Y '. ,
"Ilardiy, .Mr  Gates, but   i  do think
yon know the man who did   it.    1 have
every leaf-on to   believe it was the man .
I met coming from you the   iast time 1
"Reuily ! >Vhich man was that?"
"The tall individual 1 spoko to.yon
about. He callad himself Dr. Fitzgerald
when 1 mrr hi-n soma weeks ago, but
yon -said he had given you another
name and that hn had been on a begging errand. "
"Ah, I remember, the'man. " ■'
"Gan   you   te!i   ma   -anything- abont
"I'm   aft'md   J   c-annos.    i had never

"Can   yon tell  me the name he gave
"I have even forgotten that."
Mr   Gates- gave  th-isa .replies  in au
icily i-cJitvj voice     Brett saw the inter-

pan S3 ,,    -
"i do, Mr. Gates. Yon have deceived
me once and may be doing so now '
31 r Gates bowed with an absolutely
expressionless face, got ,np and moved
toward the fireplace.
"Before  I ring the bell for the serv

haps  you' would   be  kind   enough    t.
•spi-cify the occasion on which 1 deceiv
ed yon."
"Yoirtoid nie yon did not take Lady
Florence Mostyn's photograph trom the
Scotland Yard albnm'aud substitute another for it. .1 have tho best reason foi
believing ic was you who did this."
"Thank  you.. As yon', believe  i   de
ceivod.yoa, thou, i cannot  see why you
came to mo for accurate information to
day.    You are somewhat illogical, Cap
tain Brett, but I believe thu navy is not
conducive   to  accurate  thought     As;,
matter of'fact, you havo come hero tliY
morning with   the  deliberate intentic;
of  picking   a quarrel with,a man wJ;.-
was  doing   his best to aid   you in yum
difficulties.    After our nrevious conver

marks further intercourse between us i*
impossible.' Your methods are singular,
Captain   Brett, and   I am afrxid 1 can
uot'k-ongratnlato you on them." Saving'
which, Mr. Gates touched the bell.
Brett jumped vip  and walked toward
l he door.
"Mr. Keighley Gates," said   he, "ii
you deliberately'intend to withhold in
for the robbery, and he felt sure that
by tho next morning ho would bo in a
position to meet ins pressing necessities,
with a fciirpluH for future requirement.*'.

"In many cases of supposed heart

of medical students, "lhe !?un\*ri*f ex

The student at-the foot of ihi- olas*-*,
twisted around nneasily.
' "it has been said by ono," continued
the professor, "who has given his lif<~
to the study of diseases of thc heart
that a sufferer from heart disease Is
rarely cognizant of the fact. :i statement which is true if we c.\'*i'*it those
acute attacks, which of course point
out their own diagnosis. Chronic disorders are almost invariably insidious
In their workings or. at any rate, give
uo symptoms which point the patient
directly to the seat of the trouble."
The same student got up. hut sat
down again.
"There is a disorder of tlie heart,
however," the 'professor proceeded,
"which Is marked hy every symptom
of,distress of tliat organ and which is
almost* always ''confused with the
graver forms of heart' disease, hut
which, if properly, and early treated,
ends In recovery."

Mr. Keighley Gates seemed somewhat
disturbed when Commander Brett had
left him. He walked np and down the
room impatiently, and from tbe muttered expressions that occasionally fell
from his lips it could be gathered he
waa cnisinR somebody, bnt whether it
was Brett, Fitzgerald or-himself it was
impossible to say. At length he sat
down aud finished a hearty breakfast.
At 11 o'clock he left the hotel in n
short jacket and bowler hat.and made
his -way east to the house wher8 Mabel
Fenton was imprisoned. He worked bis
way there by a particularly circuitous
routo, employing trains, buses, hau-
foms and a steamer for his purpose, and
he cast many wary glances behind to
'issnre 'himself he was not being foi
lowed. It was 1 o'clock when he reached the house. Fitzgerald waa waiting
for him.
"Confound yon, Rich I" eaid Gates.
"A pretty, bungle you have made of
yesterday's business I"
" What's the matter? Got tho girl all
"Brett suspects you. Your fnferut-1

"Thought I dissembled to suit occa-

Mr Gates bowed to the dubious com*

to jlif* br.okeu table. Then he commenced
to tttife, and Dr. Fitzgerald Was not i:.r
wrong in hpiding his generalship, in

With a  few dozen buckets and three or four  _avaiUble ladders an average fire could  be handled with ea.se, and the distruct-  |ou of much property could be averted.  B"1J ION, BARBER SHQF  .

Cronje has ��� shown his ability  to fight off the British riflemen, and  it appears that General Roberts has  decided'to try a double course of shelling and hunger. It was one of the great  battles of the war, but at this distance  it teems that tho British generals have  clearly out maneuvered the Boers.  Apparently they are about to kill three  birds with one stone���rnmu-ly. the relief of Kimberley, the impending relief  of LudysmiUi, and the forcing of' the  Boers to fight a decisive engagement  under conditions highly favorable to  the British forces.  ���^T-^���f"T"T-"***r J*^'^i ���* VJt*'* i-**��^-j'  At Waterloo, Que,, a tuan of Norman linnLgi.", hitherto suppo-jed to be  ti loyal b'lhji.-i;'. iif ll.-r I\!o.**t Gracious  JMaj ���^ty, w.'i;' tecciitly .-v^pi'-cicii of  having th-voloped a more than war-  rantct! ailVjction for tiio i^neui's in*  tjmiet.
