FOURTEEN OUNCE NUCGET  Rich Strike on the Revelstoke Claim on  Smith Creek.  F.

Mr. McCarty thinks there  will lie no morn dead work on the  Revelstoke, lml lhat the mine will be  ii producer from this out. The slipper  nugget certainly looks liku u liar-  hinder of good fortune.  THE  COUNCIL AND  CON PANY  THE  RAM LAL'S TEA as a Package Tea  cannot be beat, It has no equal ln the  Market, as a sample package will convince all lovers of good Tea. -,  As the IlEitALD pointed out in its  lust issue there are reallv two proposition before the ratepayers at, present.  One i.s to purchase the plant of the.  Kevelstoke Water. Lifjht and Power  Co. The other is provide nn adequate  water supply for purposes of lire  protection, an object which tho company's present wiitersystem was nevej  intended to achieve. Thc situation  wilh regard to this latter undertaking  is as follows. In the Hrst place il is  admitted that, u separate system of  water supply for the purpose has got  to be constructed. At every discussion  oftiie matter in the present council  this point, is taken fur granted. Last  spring the council made .1 formal  demand on the eoiiip-uiy to furnish  this town with a 12 inch main duplicating lheir entire domestic! service  system throughout the town. The  company replied lhat oiicha system  would cost $30,000 to construct and  thai if the city insisted upon their  furnishing it, they would nave to  charge them 10. per cent on that  money ur a rental of $00 a year  for each of the-10 hydrants, which it  Wiis proposed to supply, or a total of  $:-i,6U0. Now it is quite obvious that  this town is in no po.-ilion to do any  such thing. It would bt. cheaper to  build it ourselves. How does lhat  come, out ? For every .$1,000 borrowed  nn 25 year debentures we have to  piovide $77,411 per annum for interest  and sinking fund. Multiply this$77.43  liy 30 and 'we get $2S07.4S, representing our prospective annual expend -  Hue for water for fire protection purposes. And, whether we buy the  luinpany's plant or not according to  Ihe co'nclusioiis. which have been  lluoughoiil the whole * discussion  accepted by the council ns inevilable,  lo I his expendkuie ibis city lias to go.  \ Adopting then the council's premises  for thi; sake of argument we. are in for  an annual expenditure of $2S07.4S for  Ibis purpose. It is tliey say 'unavoid-  ajile, there is no get I ing out, of i.t. Tl e  ulea of any less extensive itnd cheaper  scheme is entirely out of count.  Admitting this then, though the  Herald does not* for one moment,  be ieve il lo be so, let us take the  figures ou .he propo-ed purchase,  which have been adopted by J 111'  eiiimi il as equally, conclusive anil see  how we come. out. * Wu require say  ijiey $7p,775 to purchase lhe plant,  ifii-lll)0 lo put the ihiiii in good shape  accoiding to.Cnl. Tracy's iccnuimen-  d.il ion. and $:"(i,()0() for Ibis project ol"  a duplicate, water system for fllipid! et-.t ion purpose* ol; a ������oial of  !}! 118.000 in liuind figures. This sum  at $77.43 pel- $1.0(10 would require an  annual provision of $0,130.74. We are  furl her required by llie same calculation to lay hy an annual sum of  $o SiO lo sol oli" the depreciation of  the plant and the company's books  shew an annual expenditme for the  last two years, of about, $0,000 for  salaries, maintenance "and repaii'S.  This makes nn annual total expenditure of $18,005. Now the monthly  revenue- of the company is about  ,$1,400, .Multiply by 12 this make." a  tolal annual revenue of $10,800 between whicli and $18,005 is u ditference  of $2,105. We should then according  to these figures he $2,105 out, if wu  buy the plant as compared with $2,807,  if we .do n' t^ buy. it.a i i xljpx i tj n tlie jln plj-_  cute water system"?"!- fire, protection  ourselves.       '  This is, the result to which the  council's own figures and premises  lead. We should he $042 better off  per annum by buying the plant than  by leaving it aloiie. Of (oiirse this  town is nil more prepared to pay $2,105  to make up the deficit in ils electric  lightand waterworksdepariiiientthan  it is to pay $2,807 for aii annual  expenditure for water for fire protection. There is u������ necessity lo do  either. Tlie'IlEiiALO slated in its last,  is-ue that in its opinion $100,000 would  cover the pi ice of the plant, provide,  a quite adequate water .system for  fire protection purposes and other  expenditures needed lo put the electric  light plant in a thoroughly satisfactory  shatie. Iu our next issue we propose  to shew, an wo think cmi'very eusily  h.done, that the electric iiglit und  waterworks plant would, if owned hy  the cily, provide tbe interest nnd  sinking fund on this sum mid pay for  ils own maintenance without ever  costing the ratepayers a, cent. This  much it would do at the very least.  C. P. R. Strike.  C.P.It. strike situation at Winnipeg!;  up to the end of last, week was that il  had been practically decided that lhe  wage clauses ot" the machinists'  schedule should go to arbitration nnd  Unit as soon , nu un agreement has  been arrived ut. on the other clauses of  the schedule the strike should he  declared off.

In Klondike and at Cape   Nome   and  Back Again to the Good   Old   Jordon  Pass.  Jas. Reighley returned to lown from  Cape Nome last Ividay afler nearly  three venrs adventures among the  northern gold llelds. lie left here in  the fall of '117 and with his partner.  Jack Frisby, adopted the Edmonton  unite along wilh some couple thousand  or morn argonaut of the now historical  Klondike stampede. Reighley took  the overland route from Edmonton  and started out with a pack train.  Belore they had been out long Frisby  left him and returned, discouraged  with the dilliculties of the journey.  However, Reighley kept on going,  although he was ;i long way behind  the rest cf the procession and made  Dunvegaii. a Hudson Bay post on  Peace River, near which place he  wintered, finding good feed lor his  horses. Most of the treasure seeker.  wintered at St. John. 150 miles fiuther  on. However, Reighley made a good  start in the. spring and 1.night up  with the others at St. John and fiom  that time kept well ahead of the rush.  The season's travel saw the ci owd  thin out considerably, and Reighley  and one man of the Fresno outfit which  had practically started the. stampede  via Edmonton, were the only two of  Hie whole lot who made Lake Francis  for the winter. '93. Here they found  about 200 in camp, who had ai rived by  other unites. The country abounds  wilh grime'and the lake with fish;  mouse are very numerous as well as  grouse and wild fowl, while a night's  catch in the waters of Uie lake would  average from 50 to 250 lbs. of white  fish, lake trout and suckers. Lake  Francis is situated in the divide, between  the head waters of lhe Liard. up wliich  Reighley had come, and the Pelly,  down which lay the water route to  Dawson. Having traded liis pack  train and secured a boat and further  supplies, Reighley started out from  his whiter quarters in May 'Oil teaching  Dawson the following month. This  spring he followed the stampede down  the Yukon with his boat to Cape Nome.  He found that while there is no doubt  gold all the way from $60C to Sl.aOO to  n man had been taken out the previous  fall by the Klondikets, who made the  discovery, thai these people had taken  all there was to be got by rockers on  the beach. > The really good p.iy  gravel lies in a. narrow streak along  the beach between the tundra and the  ocean and is not found outside of a  defined belt, which had been all worked  out last-fall.*. It lies -I'lout three feet  below the surface and the cau-e of its  deposit in this peculiar manner is a  puzzle. There is what is-called a  second and third paystreak, which  were not. rich'ehough for, the rockers  to handle aiid which il may pay-to  work'over by machinery. There is a  little work being done on somo cieek  claims, hut not enough to give employment to any appreciable propoiiiun 'of  the crowd, which 111 is the streels of  Cape Nome City, all of whom who  possibly can, will leave hefoie naviga-  aion closes in November. Mi. Reighley  looks none the. worse for his adventures of which ,Lhe above is only a  brief sketch.  The City Council  Met on Frid.-iv evening. Present.  Aid. Patrick. Kilpatrick. Xewuian.

The public works committee reported.-  that they   had decided   to  build  the  McKenzie Ave. sidt-walk  with   a span  ot S feet between fence line and   inside  of. walk,' the   sttite   of   the   side   hill  opposite J*.

A visit to the Halcyon Hot Springs  Sanitarium al this time of the year i'i  both enjoyable and beneficial,���������  beneficial purely from a business point  of view, if for no othei' reason. There  are men throughout this touiitiy that,  are so nuu-ried to their bnsiiK"-s  interests that they feel that lo leave  it for a few .day-, holiday and enjoyment would be a loss. No such a  thing. A few days or weeks spent at  the Halcyon at the_ present season of  _t he__yeai_.would_give_aii_iii.pet us__t o_| he.  overworked man thai would lift him  up and make him able to tackle the  vexing and exacting duties of his  everyday life with fresh vigor and  energy. The company owning this  health-giving lesort are sparing no  pains to make a. sojourn lliere for  recreation as homelike and comfortable as possible. The waters of the  springs are so well known for their  health-giving properties that there is  no use lor the Heiiald to dwell upon  that point. The hundreds of people,  who despairing of health and even  life from Ihe ravages of rheumatism  and kindred diseases of their const i-  Unions, have visited llie-e springs nnd  in very sliort periods of time have  lefl them' new men and women, are  living demonstrations of lhe "power  to Ileal" piesent in thc hot. lilhia  waters of these famous spi ings.  Under Ihu new management of Mr.  Joe. Tnlcher, formerly of the Hern  llolel, of Sandon. the Halcyon will be  sure lo luaililaiii and add to its popularity.

The tables aie  supplied wilh every luxury that, the  markets allord, and as Charley Ross  informed us ever, the uiai.len hair  ferns that adorn tlie cenlie of' tbe  tables are things or beauty and a joy  everlasting. The bar is supplied with  lhe hest stock obtainable, and lhe  billiard room iu connection permits of  a pleasant evening being spent hy  those who desire ;i game of pool or  English billiards. At the floating  dock 11 dozen handsome < anoes are  always ready for those who wish to  enjoy tlie pleasures of a row' on the  beautiful waters of Arrow Lake.

The most recent letter received in  Lindsay from Colonel Sam Hughes  was addressed to Captain Williamson o������ that town. It reads as follows:  Well, the show is over! With  Captain Mackie and 17 men. 1 have  just concluded lhe surrender of General de. Villlers and all his corps of  about :;00 men and IS great 10 team  ox wagons; nine carls, tons of ammunition and thousands ot animals. The  terms are signed. Thus lhe war is  over, except in remote corners of the  Transvaal and Orange River Colony.  After our advance from Gritiuntown  I arranged that the wives, daughters  and sweethearts of leaders and others  of the enemy should write them urging peace and giving facts re Pretoria, etc. At Papkine. General Sir  C. Warren sent me nn free handed t"  Daniel's Kine. Well, in three ami a  half hours my force���������AVarreu's Scouts  and Intelligence Corns���������wilh Captain  "Mackie. ol' Vembroke. covered the  distance, 'ft miles,, and had tho wire  in operation an hour later. Thence T  got instructions to proceed onward  on a reconnaisance, again free handed. That is how I like to go. Then  a fellow is on his own responsibility,  and feels it so; accordingly he takes  far more' precautions than if tied up  hy orders and cautions.  At Daniel's Kine the enemy sot out  so hurriedly that they left their Union  Republican flag flying. T now have  it, as well ns the Transvaal ono T  captured at    Griquatown   r   wired  for  night I rode  into Kooning,  57 miles,  in  -:-e saddle.      Turpin wa.s with me.  Yeslerday we came from. Kor-ning  lire, and I can assure you the ramp  opened their eyes. The Canadian  artillery hoys are all delighted at my  success, and, indeed, T do not think I  have an enemy or jealous ollicer,  barring one or two ln the entire force.  I have officially asked the general  to relieve me from duty, for the show  is over and I want to get back to  Canada. I hope to leave here in a  day or two. Phillips ancl Turpin  have been'at 'my back through everything. They are fine fighters and  good hoys. There is a rumor here  that the regiment is in Cape Town  and will sail in a few days; That  makes the two lads wild to get back,  and now that there is not one soldier  in arms in the west or north west of  the Transvaal. Orange River Colony  or north west provinces, my mind reverts also Canada-wards. I forgot  to say General de Vllliers al the last  moment backed out from surrendering  and escaped after tho agreement was  signed from the Boer camp tho dny  before they came ia to ine.  Thus far .C have succeeded in everything here. It is a pleasure to me to  have vindicated myself and my principles here, and to have lived through  ii to have witnessed the triumph of  Britain���������lhe Greater Britain���������ln her  greatest struggle. I leave Africa without having made an enemy here lhat  T know of, with thousands of men .and  ollieers having repeatedly asked lo  serve under me. and without <uio  single action or movement on my part  that has not boen crowned wilh success. I hope tn be home in August.  Farewell.  SAM   HUGHES.  when, one of the governor's suite, not  knowing of what, had happened  begged His Royal Highness' permission to present the governor's daughter as a partner Tor the next waltz.  The prince politely declined, remarking that."his mother would be deeply  mortifled that he had danced with a  squaw."  Another story of his visit describes  a Canadian guide as pointedly remarking to him: 'T had the honor.  Your Highness, to show your rnyal  brother, the Prince of Wales, over this  same path, and he presented me with  this magnificent gold watch."  "Ah, indeed!" answered Prlnco  Airred, dryly, "that's more than he  ever did for me."  Tn naval circles It is recalled that  the Duke was not a favorite among  his brother ofllcers, being too forgetful of professional etiquette. A certain Britih admiral has orten referred  to a vilst paid him by Prince Alfred  when their ships lay in the same harbor. The prince. In his capacity as a  captain, paid his respects to the  higher officer, but was so Inconsiderate  as to appear In plain clothes. The  admiral's rebuke was not the less  pointed, because Indirect when lie  said: "It would have given me sincere pleasure to extend hospitalities  of my ship tr. the Duke or Edinburgh"  ���������this with a glance which swept the  prince's whole attire, from hat to  shoes���������"but I was expecting a visit  from the captain of the Galatea."  11 is but Just to tho prince's good  sense to say thnt he returned to' his  ship, donned his ceremonial uniform  and repeated his visit In becoming  fashion.

Money to Loan  OTHKU  REGICTDES  LARGEST AD ON RECORD  A Store That Made a Fortune by Using Big  Spaces.  in   the    Daily    Drovers'    Telegram.  Kansas City, there appeared on Juno  7th   the   largest  newspaper  advertisc-  seven day's rations in addition to four i ment on record.  It was the advertise-  n tariff for pro-  tor revenue had  of   extreme dis-  ruuillg.      Tn 1SS2.  A NEW  SITUATION  A feature* of the ante-election iienod  is the entire absence of any commercial anxiety as to the results of a prospective opposition success.     The situation in  thi;-    regard    is unparalleled  since 1S7S.       In that   year,   says   the  Montreal Gazette,  the verdict was to  be pronou:;e*;d or. the issue of a tariff  for  revenue   veisu.-  tection. after a tavi-  beer. tried in   a thn  tresp    and    found    i  the verdict of  1S7S was  under review,  after four years'  trial    of   protection.  The Liberal party, which had become  the opposition,  stuck to the* policy Sir  Richard   Cartwright   had   marked   out  for It when he was minister of nuance  and pending ihe decisiou of the voters  there was    a  period ot    suspended  ur  curtailed activity in commercial enicr-  pris.   till the judgment was rendered.  So it wns,  to .om-.*  extent    four year.-*  later:   and  so  it was    again    in   IS91.  when,  in addition  to  the  advocacy ot  free trade.  Sir    Wilfrid    Laurier    had  l*ut tho Liberal party on the platform  of   unrestricted     reciprocity   with   the  United Stales,  a    platform Mr.  I slake  later smashed, after   the electoral decision had smashed it.     So it was. in  only less marked degree,  in 1SUC;  and  after the Laurier success of that year  there  was  a   period  of  standing still,  while   the   government's   enquiry   inlo  the industrial conditions was going ou.  Progress was only resumed when  the  tariff changes were announced and it  was  discovered   that    in   its    general  tariff there was still left so much protection that, so far, only an Industry  here and    there    has    suffered.     The  reason for these conditions was plain.  In  their expressed  hate of  protection  and protectionists   the Liberal leaders  were hardly parliamentary.  Sir Kicli-  - ar_d_Car_twright.spoke of the National  Policy  as   being   worse  ln   its  eftecls  ihan war, pestilence and famine combined.    The Toronto Globe referred to  the men who Invested their moans in  Canadian    manufacturing   enterprises  as robbers and  rlngsters.     When  the  Liberals were  in opposition an opposition success. Judged by their pledges,  presaged  a  fi=cal  revolution,   imperilling millions     or     Investments     and  threatening many Industries with ruin.  "With  the Conservatives  ID   opposition  there has been none ot the folly that  characterized the course of the present  ministers when they    were    trying  to  K.t where they now are.     Neither Sir  Charles    Tupper    nor    his    colleagues  havo   gone    about   cursing   mon   who  are  building  up  the    country's    commerce.     They have threatened  no individual  nnd    no   Investment.     They  havo neither   minimized  the  good  nor  magnified  the    evil  In    the    country's  situation.     Thoy have    heen only the  reverse   of  their  opponents.      If   ihey  were to be put In power tomorrow no  merchant,  manufacturer or    workman  would  feel  the slightest anxiety as  to  tbe result.      All would    go on  In  the  confidence  that the  party which   was  ia power from 1STS to 1-SOG. and which  stuck   to  its  policy   in opposition  just  ns It did  when    fortune    favored    it.  ���������would do nothing    to hinder progrrss  ���������of the country    it had    the    greatest  share in making.     And this is not thr*  ���������slightest of the parly's claims to popular favor.      A  loyal opposition makes  a loyal government.  T. already had. and on Saturday morning in a terrible storm of rain, sleet  and hail, began my march of iO miles  to Koening, where they were supposed  to be: 1 looked at it this way: The  horses were better saddled and moving than shivering in the rain and  frost, and'so wore the men. 1 made  all fold the blanket Tndian fashion so  as to cover the knees, and with the  heads sot facing th* storm off we  started. I had neither blanket or  overcoat���������only my light cape, which  ynu have often seen me wear���������and as  a consequence the rain dripped off the  cape to the knees and down into my  boots. These soon' tilling, and the  water getting warm. I was quite comfortable.  I induced "Mr. Roiix. a British field  cornel, to accompany us with his  cart. My plan was for him to go into  Kuruman and get Rev. Tom Brown,  another splendid fellow, an Anglican  clergyman there, to go with him to!  the Boer camp and assint in getting i  them to surrender. - These two men  are .deserving of special thanks for  their valuable services, for although T  had all arranged before they got to  the Boers yet they helped materially  to keep all smooth on the four days'  trip back.  At Koening that night we all slept  in a church with a. fire on ihe earthen  floor, and were quite comfortable. All  were glad that we had pushed on.  even amid the greater discomforts, for  our horsose got oat sheaves and we  got shelter.  The next day our wagons came in.  but by mistake, instead of having  four and seven days' rations, they had  only four and three���������a mere mistake  ot A. S. C. clerk���������and we were not the  parly to sit down and whine and demand explanations, etc. On wc* went  niter the enemy, and at sunset were  I',., miles north of Koening. T last  night met three or the Boor leaders,  having sent on a native with a summons for their surrender. The terms  are all signed and sealed���������everything  tn be surrendered unconditionally:  citizens of the former Orange Rivet-  Colony, or of the Transvaal, are to  proceed to their homes, provided the  district whence each comes is free of  the enemy and Is occupied by British  troops. I also made special mention  of a couple of fellows who claim to be  merely trekking and not fighting, but  they must he meantime treated as  prisoners and prove their case at their  district towns.

I also circulated a counter yarn as  if I had got It from the general, admitting the Boer success between  Bloemfontein and Pretoria, but that  the following day our main force had  captured the whole Boer outfit, upon  hearing of whloh Kruger had asked to  surrender, etc. I had not heard a  word, but [ was not going to be  caught by them at. their own game,  and you see how near I was to telling a straight story. Was It mind  reading? At all events T lasi night  landed my column of nearly SOO here,  licsides Mackle and myself we had  only IT mon. t did not let the Boers  know It until our arrival here, but  assured them 1 wa.s not going to humiliate them by bringing the whole  force up to march them back, that I  would treat them on their honor,  merely gua.rdlng the wagons wilh tlie  rifles piled  on,  etc.  Ueally .lack, they arc a. rather fine  lot. and In our four day's march back  r learned to like many or them. Of  course, T never allowed anything to  stand In the way of duty, but while f  would shoot, one of them with a rifle  iu his hand as I would a. dog. yet  once in my power as prisoners, f  would use them like gentlemen. No  man o* our side in South Africa has  been ahead of your humble servant  where the bullets were flying, and no  one has gone straighlor for them or  made ihetn "gut a. move, on" quicker  than r, hut there: my old sporting  spirit comes in. I had no personal  hard reeling against them. Ono fellow  told mc he tried In hit mc three limes  at Faber's. but within 100 yards. I  had no 111 win towards hirn Tor that,'  but rather a feeling of contentment  nt bin being such an infernally bad  shot. Nearly all assured mc: that if  T wanted a corps against. Ttussln,  Fiance, China, or any other nation  than the Transvaal. Ihey would to a  man come with me.  The day before yesterday [ rode f>7  miles. The first word T got from my  general was that morning at Coe. He  said he was moving rrom Daniel's  Kine to I'll ik rout tin. Thus I.had been  7.~i miles In advance. I at once sent  C'iptiilii Mackle on towards*) Koening  ���������.\itli the Boors. While I crossed ootm-  liv south easterly to this plnr'f. That  ment of The Jones Dry Goods company and occupied four full pages.  This company is one of the largest  advertisers in America and its success  is a monument to tho value and power  of intelligent advertising carried on  along aggressive and  liberal-lines.  About a dozen years ago this company was conducting a little store  20xG0 feet in size in a small town -J00  miles west of Kansas City. Notwithstanding their limited field they advertised extensively and have in this  mui'velously short time attained their  piesent degree of success,'' and own  one ot the largest and best businesses  in the West. They have always used  large spaces and used them wisely  and well.  The lirst page of the four page advertisement referred to Is given up  to general talk as to facilities of The  Jones company and other miscellaneous reading.  The   remaining  three  pages  ot   this  remarkable advertisement aro occupied, by what  Is  practically  a  summer  catalogue    ot the * important    departments o������ The Jones Store.     Undoubt-  I edly il was an economical and effective method  of placing  the catalogue  in the hands of    the    general public. ,  The catalogue might   have been made  more     attractive   and     consequently  much. more costly  if it had been got  up in the ysual way and circulated hy  Ihc;    usual     method.     * However.     the  original and  uniuue Idea    of printing  the catalogue In tho newspaper makes  up largely" for   any loss of attractiveness, and must necessarily have caused a great deal of talk and have received  a great deal  o������  careful attention.  Tin- use of large spaces in newspaper advertising is coming to lhe  fiom. It has been thy experience- of  those who have given it a thorough  trial that big spaces pay much' better,  proportionately speaking. than do  small. There Is something impressive  about the large advertisement, and it"  it is properly displayed and. intelligently prepared it is bound to be  effective and profitable.  All merchants cannot use large  spaces all the time, but every merchant can us-s them once in a while, and  the oftener they are used fit they are  used Ir.ielllg'.-ntly) the more likely the  merchant is npt lo attain some such  mcpsure of succrss of The Jones company has.  One very common error in the liand-  .IHng o" large spaces is that of filling  ih.m up with generalities and useless  talk of the brassrlne order.

Our great trouble  has been want of remounts, our horses  being completely played out for want  ol rest, and many of them dying from  the horse sickness, a form of splenic:  fever that is epidemic among them In  this country. Some ot the battles  have been most magnificent sights,  that have to be seen to be fully appreciated. Fortunately unless one is  very close to a person when he Is  wounded you do not see to any extent  the Cull horrors of war.  "We have most reliable men in our  Colonels Anderson and Pilcher and we  havp Colonel Anderson to thank for  not being completely wiped out at  Van Wyck's Rust on May 28th. I  was with a battery of ' the Royal  Horse Arillery during part of the  battle and the colonel who had been  In the- siege of' Plevna during the  Turko-Russlan war said to me while  we were retiring that he had never  seen' men stand such severe shelling,  and he fully expected that we would  be 'arinihilialed., 'Yet, extraoi-dinary  to say we had only one man hurt,  (Corporal Stearns) shot through the  body, and he is doing well. We had  some horses killed. I saw- the fore  legs of a horse carried off by a shell,  and another man, one of the hussars  T think had his-horse cut in two just  behind the girth by a large shell. The  man was unhurt except by the fall,  but had his head blown off just as he  started for Iho rear. I have had two  close shaves, but so far have not had  a scratch. Since I have been promoted I have ��������� not. been under lire so  often. -,   -  I am glad to say the war seems lo  be lrbarly over now, and I hope soon  to get settled"down again for a time, j  T have not been inside a house except I  lo look for loot, since the 10th of i  March.and in consequence am.getting>'  'rather tired of camping and of field  surgery. I have operated twice under  rather heavy fire, and must confers  that I would sooner���������much sooner���������be  drinking a glass -of beer with you in  L*'dmonton. I do not mind the rifle  or big shell, firo but the pom pom fire  is very trying to one's nerves.  I anvlo see'Colonel Stevenson, the  P. M. O., of the army tomorrow and  1 think from bis sending for me it  means further work and more- pay  for, me at the base hospital. If so I  shall iir all "probability stay here for  some  months  longer.  I have not had any letlers or papers  of any kind from Canada since the  Tth of March last, so you can imagine  how wc have been knocking about.  We have ridden all the way from  Victoria West to Cape Colony, through  the Orange' Free State' up to Pretoria  and -to this point., AVe have just heard  that a whole lot of mail including thai  of the" Canadians has been captured  and destroyed by the Boers, so I am  afraid most of my mall' has gone up in  smoke.

August 14��������� (via Che Foo,  August 21.)���������The American and  Russian flags were planted on the east  wall of Pekln at 11 o'clock this  morning. The Indian troops entered  the' British legations at one and the  Americans three. There was a joy*  ful reception from the wall. The cm  aciated tenants could have lasted but  little longer. They had only three  days' rations remaining. The Chinese  had been attacking them furiously for  two days. Four thousand shells fell  in' the legation during the siege.  Sixty-five were killed arid 1G wounded.  The Japanese began the battle before  daylight and they are all fighting  about the north wall, where part of  the' Chinese are defending the Imperial city. The Japanese casualties  have not yet been ascertained. The  Russians had five killed and 12 wounded. The Americans and . British had  a few wounded.  The plan was to make a general  attack tomorrow and the troops were  arriving at camp,, five- miles east last  night. They were completely exhausted and slept in the cornfields in the  rain. The generals, however, alarmed  at the sounds of a heavy attack on  the legations, pushed forwa'rd independently, the British, Americans and  French on the' left of the river and  the Russians and Japanese on the  right. Beginning at daybreak" this  morning the Japanese diverted, the  brunt of resistance to the ' northern  city, their artillery ' engaging ' them  heavily here. Thc Americans and  British met with little resistance  until they entered the city, where  there was street fighting.  Reiily's battery attempted to breach  the inner wall. The troops finally  entered the foreign settlement through  the canal. The Chinese had continually violated thc armistice.
