The direct C0.-.1 lo (Jreal Hril-  ;iin of the present war with the  Boers up to end of March is  .some -f-'J^O,000,(K)ii, tlie cheapest  in money in her history, considering the number of men 'put in  tA\e field and tlie distance to which  they had. to be transported, says  the San Francisco Cull.  In the American war of independence ("ireai Britain expend-  .otJ *(>(>:>, UOi'l,00<).  The wars with France, beginning in 17U;J and lasting  -with little, intermission - until  midttd by Waterloo, cost her $1,-  ir>r>,U0(),UOO. The whole cost of  tihe Napoleonic wars to France  was *f;-10,0(.ib,000. In tlie' Critical! war Great Britain put 07,-  000 men in the held and the cost  to her was #8-h">,000,000. not  /ouch more than the present war  tup to date.  France sent 310,000 to, the Crimean war at a cost of $4!'/>,< 100.-  OOCi. ("ireat Britain lost rJ7,00O  men from battle and disease of  hot" 07,000 and Russia nearly half  of the 880,000 which she muster-,:  cd on llie shores of , the Black  Sea. The American civil war  .cost the federai government ��3,-  700.000,000 in mouey-amU3r-0,000  men, 'while the loss in life to the  confederates was some UOO.OOO  more.  '   ' According to a report recently  issued by the bureau of ordinance  ,?.it, Washington  the cost of  the  H,mmunition used,  in  destroying  ihe Spanish fleet'in' Manila   bay  was #45.000,, while  the  destruction of'Cervera's fleet oil" Santiago cost $100,000.  ���  , While 'Queen  Victoria's  Jong  reign , is .accounted  one  of   the  most  glorious  and  peaceful   in  English history,   it" is  a  matter  of fnut that throughout the whole  C3 years since she ascended   the  throne there never' has  been a  time when all her war dogs have  'been in the leash.    The first Af-  .irhau war was the event  of  her  iiscensioii to the,, throne,   as   tho  prescut'Boer war is"probably of  the close of her reign,  while  28  .other distinct wars, ranging* oyer  .livery quarter of the  globe,   including'the Crimean--war.  have  til led.up the interval.  With conflicts impending in  (China .and oh the Afghan border  '{."reafc Britain has never been so  well prepared before to meet fhe  situation. Her total force in  South Africa junv numbers more  -.than 220,000 seasoned troops,  1-hree times as-many as she ever  before put in a foreign field at  ���jiiiv time.  \o,i<i amu, vi-^il'mg a poor  who had JU.-.1 lo.sl his lift lo  endeavored to console him.  ]ioOr man burst   into   tears,  man  boy,  Tho  and  in the midst of his sobs exclaimed. '���If twarna agin t" law a  should ha' liked to have V lillle  beggar stuffed."  looks like a toy handlo"'chief for  a good hoy '���Tin' Maple Leaf  Forever".  Tho Cardinal Did Not Mind.  Tiie following story comes  from Rome. Some ladies made  their appearance at a papal reception, to the grave displeasure  of the Pope, iu bailroom dress.  A well-known cardinal was' in-  strueted to apprise these offenders of their breach of etiquette.  The cardinal thus fulfilled his  somewhat delicate mission: '-The  Pope," he said, -Ms old-fashioned  and does not like decollete dresses; but 1 am quite accustomed to  them, for 1 have been so much  among savages when a missionary that 1 do not mind them."  Wonderful Old Man oi* the Sea.  Admiral Sir Henry Keppel i.s  a wonderful old man of the sea  On the verge of 02. he has left  his comfortable chambers in the  Albany and undertaken a long  voyage to British North Borneo.  Fifly years ago he was chasing  pirates in Bornean waters and  storming them in their strongholds. He has ever since retained an active interest in the  British possessions of the far  East, aud has devoted a good  deal of his time lo his duties as  a director of .the British North  Borneo Company.    ��� ���  w is  e time  During the last two months the recent development of the district around the Worth  Star and Sullivan mines and the extraordinary   discoveries   made   would   guarantee   the  ,   Mr. Mackie's Defence.  A Buffalo woman recently instituted divorce proceedings, and  applied lo tho court for alimony  and counsel fees. In opposing  tho motion for alimony her husband submitted in testimony the  following, remarkable letter,  which he claimed to have received through the mail from his  wife:       q  Thi.s is to certify' that I,  Louise Mackie, tlie legally -wedded wife of'John G. Ivlackie, do  hereby permit my'husband to go  where he "pleases, drink what he  pleases and when he pleases;  and 1 furthermore permit him  to keep and enjoy the company  of any lady orcladies he sees fit,  as I'know he is a good judge. I  want him to enjoy life as he will  be a long time dead.  i, He Gave ,Him Leave.  Henry Cooprider, an 18-yoar-  old Kansan, recently,applied to  the probate judge of Harper  county for a marriage license.  The judge informed the young  man" that the consent of his father would have to bo obtained before'the license could be obtained, whereupon the boy presented the following note:  - -'.fudge; Sir-���I turn the boy  loose.'

Keeping- a Cabinet Secret.  Secrets of  slate are probably  best kept of all secrets, says the  ."New York Press.    When cabinet  aninisters   in  England  first  are  .-admitted  to   the   privy   council  Abey have to take a solemn oath  jiot to make known conversation  or   proceedings   of the  cabinet  -councils, or any communications  Ahoy may. have with   the  Queen  .or with another minister.    They  .cannot give hint of  such   things  , even to the   highest   member   of  ���government who are not  cabinet  ministers.   No clerk or secretary  js allowed lo be present "at-cabinet councils,  no  writlen  record  is kept, and it i.s the custom   not  io take any notes.   Hence no one  but the Queen and fhe ministers  tjver knows what has really been  _said and decided at cabinet meetings.    The oath of secrecy  last  to the end of life.   An ex-cabinet  minister is-as much bound by   it  as an actual minister  Any conversation a, peer or  jjiiuistor may have with the  Queen on state matters must also  be kept a, secret. So must letters  i:o and from the sovereign. And  esven coniihunicittion.s that have  passed between'sovereigns and  .ministers of former reigns must  siot be divulged. But in cases  of extreme urgency the Queen  (ftould, and would allow a breach  vf jbhe oath of secrecy.  How to Get There.  During the jubilation over the  relief of Mafeking (says the Londoner), a humorous policemen  was asked in the thick of the  crowd by a harassed pedestrian  to tell him the nearest Way to  Charing Cross hospital. "'Call  for 'three cheers for Kruger,'"  responded the genial guardian  of the'peace, "and you'll be there  in no time."  An Interesting1 Collection.

North Star and Sullivan groups;
near Kimberley. The St. Eu-
trene and^North Star have been
. worked continuously for several
years, and the Sullivan' reached
1he shipping point a few weeks
ago. These are mentioned as
.examples ol what may be expected if systematic work i.s con-
tinned upon many another property in this district. The Estella. on Tracy creek is fast reaching ii point where il may reasonably expected to become a shipper when transportation becomes
available. There are other
properties in Ihe vicinity of lho
Estella,. notably the Minnie M.
and Tiger', Montana, .lohn L.
and others; all in coar.se ol development, and the showing being of such a character as to
warrant iln- work being continued.
On Wild Horse creek and its
tributarjes, work is being done
in a desultory sort of way. ex-
cept on the I3ig Chief. Dupont.

with American politics. Under;
the caption. **Xero or Fakir," he i
throws aspersions upon the mo-.
tives which induced Theodore i
Roosevelt to accept the nomination for the vice-presidency.
The vice-president of the United
States if not a position eagerly
sought after. If elected he is
simply a figure-head presiding
over fhe senate, and the possibility of his°being president, i.s
extremely remote, he usually is
plunged into obscurity incase he
serves during the four years.'
While on the other hand to be
governor of the great state of
New York is an honor greater
than the vice-presidency, and if
he. seeks re-nomination he is an
active political factor in a great
scheme. Some great man said
he would rather be right than to
be president, but in the case of
Mr. Roosevelt, he would rather
be governor of Xew York than
be vice president. Mr. Roosevelt was forced into the position
against his will, he had asked
that his name be not ,considered
that he' would accept the nomination for re-elect ion as governor
of Xew York but' that he did
not want the 'vice-presidency.
But the convention nominated
him. and he simply did what any
one else would have done under
the c-ircumsuinces. bowed ^gracefully to the inevitable.
