o'clock Tuesday afternoon, a union

Lady Roberts, was hoisted over the

acclamations of the commander-in

enough, the Orange Free State burgh

The opposition to the entry of the
British troops into the capital was in

few shells drove them off and at 10 in

them to where Lord Roberts stood on
on top of a hill waiting for them. As
spokesman Mr. Frazer asked protection
for life and property and surrendered
Lord Roberts, accompanied by his
staff, rode as the head of a cavalcade a
mile long to the presidency, reoeiving
an ovation throughout the route, cul
minating in a remarkable demonstra

the government buildings, Lord Rob
erts took possession of the city in the
name of the queen and then repaired to
the presidency where the ceremony of
hoisting the union jack ended forever,
according to universal opinion here, the
Boer government of the Free State.
During his progress through the town
Lord Roberts stopped and ordered the
instant replacement of goods which
were being looted from the artillery
barracks by kaffirs, thus giving the pop

WEARING OF SHAIROCK
By the Irish Soldiers Is Regarded a
Concession By Her Majesty and a
Tributo to the Nationality, Which
Ias Long Been Ignored.
NEW YORK, March 19.-Mr. T. P.
O'connor, M. P., in the London Daily
"I am asked to state my views with
regard to the momentous question as to
the approval by the queen of the wear
Ing of the shamrock by Irish soldiers
and as to her majesty's visit to Ireland.
"As to the wearing of the shamrock,
it is the tribute to Irish nationality
which will be greatly appreciated. The
shamrock ma.erially is a small plant,
but the wearing of it means to an Irish
man centuries of sacred memories and
country, wrongs resisted, hopes main
tained. The wearing of it by the Irish
soldiers, then, is a concession-I had
almost called tremendous concession
to Irish sentiment by the British throne,
which must have vast consequences.
"But, speaking assuredly in no spirit
of carping objection, but as an illustra
tion and a man, I point out that the
conduct of English ministers toward
this small qnestion is a very remarkable
and significant example of the slowness
and dumbness of wit, the want of
imagination and sympathy which have
characterized all the actions between
England and Ireland.
"While the Scorch soldier could wear
the thistle without interference, while
the Welsh soldier could wear the leek,
the Irish soldier for years has been, by
some stupid order, deprived of the
privilege and sent to prison because he
wore the emblem of his nationality.
And when an Irish .member, session
after session, csiled attention to the
fact, he was howled at by many English
members and he received either an ab
rupt or hostile answer from the min
"And, now, after all the bitterness of
these years, after the imprisonment and
isults and all the rest of the contro
versy is ended by the order of the high
est and greatest figure in the realm. I
will not say, as can be said about so
many other cencessions to the Irish,
"Too late, too late,' but assuredly the
conclusion has not come too soon. And,
now, as to the visit of the queen to Ire
land. If, in this act, if I may use the
word, a statesmanlike and eloquent
proof, added to the many others, that
the present sovereign is one of the wis
est that has ever ruled these lands."

question the rnght .of the governor to

the president had no authority to place

Questions by Mr. Lentz brought out

A QUEER CALCULATION.
The Power That Would Be Required
to Move the Earth.
Statisticians sometimes have queer
ideas. One of them has amused himself
by calculating how much energy, water
and coal it would take to move the
earth a foot, supposing that it was sub
jected throughout its mass to a force
equivalent to terrestrial gravitation.
This is a gratuitous supposition, for in
spite of its enormous mass the earth
Starting with the fact that the earth's
mass is about 6,100 million-million
million tons, our statistician calculates
that we should require 70,000,000,000
years for a 10,000 horsepower en
gine to move our globe a foot. The
boiler that should feed this engine I
would vaporize a quantity of water that
would cover the whole face of the globe
with a layer 300 feet deep. The vapori
zation of this water would require 4,000
million-million tons of coal. This coal
carried in cars holding ten tons each
and having a total length of 30 feet,
would require 400 million -million cars,
which would reach 80,000,000 times
around the earth. This train, moving
at the rate of 40 miles an hour, would
take more than 5,000,000 years to trav
erse its own length. It would require
for storage a shed that would cover
1,000 times the area of Europe.
If we realize that this fantastically
huge amount of energy is nothing at all
compared with what the earth possesses
in virtue of its rotation about its axis,
its revolution about the sun, and its
translation in space with the solar sys
tem, of which the earth is but an in
finitesimal part and which itself is but
an infinitesimal part of the universe,
we may get some idea of the importance
of man in the universe and estimate his
incommensurable pride at its just value.
The Peccary Is Wholly Fearless and
Will Fight Man or Beast.
A writer in the St. Louis Republic
says that the most vicious and fearless
member of the brute creation is the pec
cary, or wild hog, of Mexico. This ani
mal seems utterly devoid of fear and dis
plays an intelligence in fighting man
strangely at variance with its apparent
ly complete lack of mental attributes.
Their ability to scent men is particu
larly marked. The only thing to do
when they get after you is to run away
from them as fast as a horse can carry
you, and then there is no certainty that
they won't catch you. They are nearly
as swift as a horse, and their endurance
is as great as their viciousness.
A friend of mine encountered a drove
of them in a wild part of Mexico a few
years ago, and his escape was almost
miraculous. He very foolishly shot and
wounded a number of them. Then he
took refuge in a tree.
The peccaries kept him in the tree all
that day and through the night. They
circled round the tree, grunting and
squealing their delight at the prospect
of a feast. He soon exhausted his am
munition and brought down a peccary
at each fire, but this had no terrors for
Toward morning they began to eat
those he had killed, after which they
formed in line and trotted off. If they
had not had some of their own number
to devour, they would have guarded
that tree until my friend, through sheer
exhaustion, dropped from his perch and
allowed them to mnake a meal of him.
The wildcats and tigers that infest
the Mexican wilds floe from the pec
caries with .instinctive fear, and even
rattlesnakes keep ont of their path.
A Bit of London Weather.
Our weather ia grown decidedly good
for itbelast three days-very brisk, clear
and dry. Before that it was as bad as
weather at any time need be. Long con
tinued plunges of wet, then clammy,
glarry days on days of half wet (a kind
of weatber peculiar to London, and
fully uglier than whole wet)--a world
of black sunless pluister [a sof t mixture,
neither one thing nor another], very
unpleasant to move about in! The in
cessant travel makes everything mud
here, in spite of all that cdats [a clat, a
wooden scraperj and besoms can do. A
kind of mud, too, which is as fine as
paint and actually almost sticks like a
kind of paint. I took, at last, into the
country, with old clothes and trousers
folded up. There the mud was natural
mud, and far less of it; indeed little of
it in comparison with other country.
We dry again in a single day of brisk
wind.-Carlyle Cor. in Atlantic.
Not Very Pathetic.
An Ohio woman visiting Boston for
the first time has been doinlg the sights.
"I had my greatest thrill down at
Copp's Hill burying groud," she said.
"Yes, that's just the place for the
historic emotions," commented her in
terlocutor. She smiled.
'As soon as my sister-in-law and I
got into the place," she said, "I found
myself almost stepping upon a grave
with an inscription on a queer little
iron cover sort of tomb. I jumped back,
feeling the way you do when you step
on a grave, and read the inscription,
just three initials, no name or date.
'Isn't it pathetic?' I said to my sister
in-law. 'Oh, I don't know,' she answer

Works.' "-Boston Transcript.

Nearly everybody is aware that at
