CITY MILL C0Ltd.,
Idioms Used In the Transvaal Terms Often
Seen In Reports of the War.
New readers always suffer Incon
venience when the reports from abroad
contain unfamiliar wonts and expres
sions idiomatic to the locality from
which th: i". v. i open wruten
Tho occurrence of ouch "ultlnuiU.jth
terms will be frequent In the iliipatch
os which will record the strife uetwi on
Hugland and her stubborn neighbors in
South Africa, for that country has a
tUoIa nil its own.
litre la h btler Rln.wory Hlueti titiiife
tho terms which are iiiot likely to Ond
their way iuto tho war correspondents'
, Ink horns from the dust of tho dry Af
rican "vuldt.' And tills (tho corupre
henalvo term for all open country
there, and not merely "tho 'plains")
will do to start with. Dealing with "de
AfrlUaanscho teal," and not with '
"Boom" (meaning farmers and noth
ing uioro) coll "prout hollous" cor
rect lluropenn Dutch wo properly
spoil this word with a final "t," because
phonetically tho word is In Africa
"felt," oven though tho books spoil It
Socio ptoplo mistakenly connect '
with tho nbovo word tho term "vcl-l
schoens," and spell this, which stands .
for the f.irnier-mado skin shoes which I
nie only ono degree removed from our
mocassins with an added "dt," under
tho Impression that tho word means
shoes for tho veldt.
"Ult" Is ono of thu most puzzling
Byllnblcs for tho Anglo-Saxon reader
to master; favorite pronunciation ls
"weet." Its sound in a Trnnsvaaler's
mouth Is exactly hb wo say "8" In Eng
lish, u. g., ultlandcrs "oight-lanuers,"
Uen In South Africa Itself thu Saxon
tonguo boggles at this "ult" and for
"spruit," a brook or streamlet, most
of them say "sproot;" nevertheless,
tho Boers always pronounce It "spr-S."
Some physical features of landscapo
likely to bo presented to their readers
by tho nowHivritiirs In "taal" words aro
shown In the following commentary:
"Hand," any long, rolling hill range Is
n rand; moro specifically the grassy
rldgo Itself of such a formation. Gats
..land and Wltwaters laud aio illustra
tions. "Kopjo" pronounced koppo desig
nates Isolated bills, especially such as
aro round and have pointed tops. A
"kop" Is large; it must be an Isolated
mountain peak to attain tho dignity of
kop. To bo n "spltzkop" tho peak must
be high, sharp and craggy. "Berg" or
"bsrgcn" signifies extensive mountain
ranges, as tho Mahallesbfrgen, tho Dra
Jfnsuoig and tho Werzameiuergon.
Io descend to tho lower features of
il . landscape say from tho top of Ma
Jtiba "koi)" wo como down tho grassy,
NO AGREEMENT WITH ItRITAIN.
Washington, Nov. 8. Tho Bulletin
correspondent this morning received a
cablegram from London announcing
thnt thero wcro slnrtlltig ruinoio In
London concerning tho Anlo-Amorl-can
policy In China and tho Fur East.
Those ruinois roter to statements mado
in theso dispatches that a Chines?
policy actually exists In Washington,
nnd that It Is fully understoo-r in Lon
don. The probability Is, although offi
cial confirmation cannot be hnd, that
Loudon will co-opeiato with thla oun
try in maintaining an Amnrlcan-Clil-neo
policy. Secretary of. Bute Hay
was shown tho Loudon c&Wgrom, mid
said that tho report In circulation tlvjro
which was that England, the United
States and China had entered Into a
scrot agreement to preferw th Integ
llty of the Celestial Brnp'to, wwj false.
"All wo aro doing In China, if wo are
doing anything,, added Mr. liny, "Is to
protect our trndo interests there. Of
courso, thero can bo no secret treaty In
this caee or in any other. No treaty
can bo binding upon this country un
less first latlficd by tho Senate Thoro
foro secret treaties cannot exist, ami
the tall; about them Is foolish."
Big Lumlisp Deal.
Minneapolis, Minn., Nov. C.-A spe
cial to the Trlbuno from Ashland, AY Is.,
says: Frederick Wuycrliausor, of
Chippewa Fnlls, tho greatest lumber
man In Wisconsin and Minnesota, Is
Just closing another deal which more
than clinches his titlo an tho most o
tonslvo manipulator in luuuer and logs
in tho world. Hlo latost, and most stu
pendous deal Is tho purchase of l,O0i,
000 arires of lumber lands from the
Northern Pacific Company. This tim
ber Is located on tho l'Coln O ist. Th"
prlco paid for this timber Is &u,000,OiiO.
This is the largest timber deal ever
closed by a .single Individual in ftio
history of the lumbering and logging
industry. In speaking of the deal Mr.'
Woyerhouser says that It la sloiply an
investment. Ho bolloves that timber
is bound to ndvnnco out In tho Western
country, and that he will reallzo a
handsome profit, r
roclc-strcwn "hoogte," or bracsldo, mid
find ourselves In Lnlngs Nek. "Nek"
means the rounded hollow of tho dip
between any two peaks of a mountnln
' -.In. But do not roako tho error of
iiiiifoundlng tho "nek" with tho "pass."
Iamgs Nek is a pass, because tho road
goeo over It; but thero aro "neks"
which tiro not passes.
if, however, wo wcro upon a moun
tain which offered us no easy "hoogto"
i'cs :cnd by wo should havo to scrain-
blo down some narrow and rugged
'kloof." A kloof Is precisely what In
America wc call a canyon, and ,ns with
tho woid canyon, so also tho word
kloof may with equal propriety bo ap
plied to a deep, narrow cut In u plain
or n lot el, narrow pass.
The appointments of tho great South
African ox wagon aro suro to bo re
ferred to. Of theso tho great freight
ers (tho "bokwagou) run to as much
as twenty feet long by seventeen be
tween tho wheels nnd aro drawn by
fourteen, sixteen of eighteen bullocks,
' spanned" lu pairs.
"Jnspannlng" nnd "outspannlng" aro
tho acts of hitching up and loosing
theso animals from tho yoke. Each
ox Is harnessed thus: After the sunn
havo been "reined" nnd ranged along
tho "touw" tho end of tho yoko Is laid
upon tho animal's neck, nnd ns these
uro two Btout pieces of wood thrust
through holes In tho end of tho yoke
theso clip his neck in a fork. They nro
the "yokeskeys." A short twisted coup
ler of rawhldo (called tho "shrop")
connects up tho under ends of tho
"koyj" and then It Is n clover beast
who can wrlgglo out of that slmplo do
vlce. Tho "rclras" with which tho
oxen havo been caught aro around their
horns, and ns each pair aro "yoked"
tho operator seizes seizes their two
relrus and allowing a play of nbout
three feet to tho right-hand ox lays up
tho slack criS3-cross around tho horns
of tho other; and thero you havo tho
cntlro harness of tho "trock-oss."
Theso "rolms" nro lnch-wldo strips of
rawhide slightly softened by twisting
and run from soven to ten feet In
length. Thoy aro very strong.
Tho "yokes" nro fastened along a
carefully lald-up cablo of rawhldo
strands', which Is called tho "trcck
touw" wo beg to ropeat that tho sound
of this word warrants tho "ck" Instead
of tho conventional "k" but some
times a Europcan-mado chain Is used
Instead of tho native touw, nnd then
tho Boer will speak of It ns his trcck
Krugcr Is pronounced "Kroor" most
ly In tho Transvaal, but "Kreer" gen
erally elsewhere In South Africa. St.

Florence, Ala., Nov. 7. General Jo

of Florence, stating his .views on tho
Philippine question, says:
"I am delighted with tho Phtllpplno

and assists Agulnnldo In maintaining
tho Insurrection, ns he publishes nil as
sertions by Americans of that char

If they hold out until wlnlor Indepen

a bad effect In this that tho pcoplo

and though desiring us to govern tho

so and tho Americans should abandon
