John Hays Hammond, the
Anioncan charged with tho leader

Johannesburg, was liberated on

Tho trial of tho mombors of tho

armed forces hauled Maxim guns
through tho streots.
Thoro was a crowded meeting
of Amoricans ono night, to hoar
tho report of ti deputation that
had met President Kruoger. R.
E. Brown presented tho report
and announced that tho visit to
tho Presidont had beon unsatis

could bo expected from tho Boer
Government. John Hays Ham

in which ho mado theso remarks:

President Krueger of the
Transvaal republic is one of
the greatest diplomats in the
world. He is a living proof of
the fact that in rare instances
the diplomatist is born, not
made. He is ignorant of let
ters and the elegancies of life
and his range of reading is
very limited, out the old Boer
possesses qualities that enable
him to cope with the cleverest
of the trained diplomatists of
'1 he attention of the whole
civilized world is now riveted
on this man and his doings.
His every act is reported in the
London and New York papers
by able special correspondents
detailed for the purpose.
Here in this little republic of
fly-specks on the great Pacific
we are so far from the arena
in which the present great
game of diplomacy is being
carried on, and our means of
getting news from the outside
world are so few and far be
tween, that we have more time
to attend to our own and our
neighbor's business especially
the latter, if all reports are true.
We want to call the atten
tion of readers of the BUL
LETIN this week to something
which not only interests them
but their neighbors also. It is
to an article called CARBO
LINEUM AVENARIUS. We
believe those are Latin words
but we don't know and we
don't care. We know the ar
ticle is good for the purpose it
is used, and that is all that
Carbolineum Avenarius is
used for preserving wood
against all insects, rot, fungus,
etc., and it does the business
in great shape. It is applied
the same as paint and is in a
convenient and handy form
for use. We had a lot of this
valuable compound some time
ago but the demand was so
great when people got to know
about it that our stock was
soon exhausted. We have
plenty on hand now, however,
to supply everybody.
In building nouses this pre
paration is invaluable for coat
ing plates, mudsills and any
lumber which is liable to come
in contact with moisture. It
is excellent to preserve the ends
of fence 'posts and telephone
