that tbo Boors have blown up
another armored train carrying

still continuing in the neighbor,
According' to dispatches from
tho front the Boars have made
several attacks on Mafeking, all

Marico commandera have aroused
the border and entered the Rooi
grend territory between Liohten
burc and Mafekinc, blowing up
the bridge over the Maloppo river,
and destroying a train load of
dyaamito and track. As Mafeking
depends upon Rooigrend for its
water supply, trie aigninoance or.
this move is evident.
A dispatch from Pretoria, dated
Ootober 14, says:
, "General Eooh wires from tho
Natal border that his command
has occupied Botohas Pass and
also captured tho railway station."
The latest reports from Vry
burg say that the armored train

week when tho yachts mado at
tempts to sail, tbo light wind left
them stranded o'n tho course when
tho timo limit expired.
To-day the fog bank prevented
them from leaving their moorings
inside the slip of land which forms
Sandy Hook, at tho ontranco of
tho lower bay. This was by far
tbo most diacooraging of all.
Sir Thomas Lipton and Mr.
Iselin bad agreed at nine o'clock
not to Bail unless thn fog lifted.
There was considerable wind, but
the big sailing boats lay idlo all
day at their moorings.
The next attempt will bo made
on Thurdiy, and daily thereafter

another attempt in such weather.
New York, Oct.14. At the sun
