the Elaudslaagte fight, which are still

Good Qualities That Put the Stamp
of Excellence Upon This
There are many reasons why you
should take Morrow's Kid-ne-oids in
preference to any other kidnev prep
aration. First, Kid-ne-oids are a
scientific preparation. Second, They
are tablets, which is the scientific
form of preparing medicine. Third,
There are never any bad after effects
from their use. Fourth, They act
directly upon the kidneys ; they are
strictly a kidney cure and nerve
tonic. Fifth, You do not have to quit
work while U3ing Kid-ne-oids. A
B0- cent box containes enough for
about two weeks' treatment. Peo
ple use Kid-ne-oids, because they
cure kidney ailments.
Mrs. J. It. Thomas, 214 South
Spencer st, Akron, Ohio, says: "I
have been very much distressed with
pain across the small of my back for
a number or years. Sometimes the
pain would extend down into my hip
joints which I supposed to be lum
bago. I also had other symptoms of
disordered kfdneys; I heard about
Morrow's Kid-ne-oids mid decided to
try them. I was surprised to find
myself greatly relieved of my troub
les and their continued use has com
pletely cured me."

Mr. Chamberlain then said:

great, ahnost determining contest be

fought without the loss of a single
American. We have never denied that
the Transvaal was a focman worthy of
our steel. .Not only was the disparity
between the forces iu the Spanish
American war as great as those now
engaged, but the contention of the
United States and their right of inter
ference arose from the fact that at some
distance from their territories there
was oppression, not of American citi
zens, but of another race ot people, and
that justified the intervention of the
United States iu the mind of the civil
ized world, or, at any rate, in the eyes
of Englishmen and Irishmen. But we
are interfering in behalf of our own

London, Oct 2ti. British naval prep
arations caused a strong reiteration of
serious foreign complications. It was
said that Rear Admiral Lord Charles
Beresford will command the Mediter
ranean squadron, and details of the
activity at the dockyards and naval
stations came in hot and fast. It was
learned, however,.tht whether or no
Great Britain Eeriously fears Russian or
French aggression, the naval prepara
tions have bteu under consideration for
several months and it was the admir
ty's intention to put them in force as
toon as war with the Transvaal was de
clared, deeming it necessary to increase
the active strength of the navy in order
to insure the large fleet of transports
against every possible contingency.
The naval reserves have been ordered
to be in readiness to rejoin their ships
at 24 hours' notice, while all the cruis
ers of the reserve class have been noti
fied to be ready to sail in the same time
In addition to these preparations work
on tho uncompleted vessels is being
hurried day and night.- The special at
tentiou being paid to the cruisers is
taken by many naval authorities to in
dicate that Great Britain intends to
form a menacing flying squadron, ueiuz
the term "menacing" because the naval
force at .sea now is ample to convey the
transports and is thoroughly capable of
preventing any interference in South
While the British officials did not con
ceal their knowledge of German.Treneh
and Russian antagonism and their irri
tation thereat, they do not give the
slightest hint that European hostility
will crystalize into any probable oven
The belief that Great Britain is on
the verge of a crisis or even a conflict
far greater than that in the Transvaal
has many supporters, though the lack
ql all official confirmation favors the
coi..servatiYe views that the remarkable
military and naval activity is due to a
desire to take thorough precautions,
Which, tiiough ominous, have at present
no special bearing upon Great Britain's
Advices from the continent strengthen
this view. For iiistance, The Fremden
blatt of Vienna said: "Nothing points
to the eventuality of the intervention of
Europe in favor of the Boers."
The paper added that Germany es
pecially has resolved "not to depart
from her attitude of neutrality.!'
On the other hand the Xeues TTeiner
Tagblatt published a telegram from the
Transvaal legation at Brussels announc
ing that Dr. Leyds had received formal
assurances that France and Russia will
not permit Great Britain to annex the
Transvaal or the Orange Free' State.
This is disci-edited, however, as it is
pointed out that even if this .were the
intention of the powers mentioned they
would not allow their hands to be
shown prematurely through the mo
diuni of Dr. Leyds.
The Russian newspapers may bo
somewhat responsible tor the impres
sion in regaru to Jiuropeau interven
tion, the St. Petersburg Russkija advo
cating that Great Britain be brought to
her senses by a naval demonstration in
South Africa in which France would
take the lead.
