Luncheon   By     Lord    Strathcona.���  General Buller is the Man.  London has  rarely   witnessed  a scene of patriotic  enthusiasm  that  equalled   today's   luncheon,  given   by   Lord   Strathcona, at  Kensington Palace Hotel to Colonel Steele and the officers aud  men of Strathcona's Horse.   Owing to the national mourning the  gathering was of a semi-private  character,   but    among   Strathcona's   personal     friends   were  Lord   Dundonald,   under   whose  command        thu       Strathconas  fought:    St.     John     Broderick.  secretary of state for  war, Lord  Aberdeen,     Earl     Grey,    Earl  Derby and Lord Stanley.     Lord  Dundonald's   speech    recording  the deeds of Strathcona's Horse  roused     the   gathering    to   the  highest    pitch     of   enthusiasm.  Lord Strathcona received volley  after volley of  cheers   from   the  officers and men   of  the  Strathconas, but the .wildest- cheering  wits reserved for General Buller,  who unquestionably 'remains the  hero of the   lighting  Canadians.  ��� ''Wi) are,'' saidColonel Steele,  amid   vociferous  cheers, ''going  back to Ca.ua.da fo settle   up  m-r  Aerated waters  Of all kinds.  i  Syrups, Champagnes, Ciders,  ..   l      Ginger Ales, Etc.
