AN EFFECTIVE - CARTOON
Mr. Kruger Has Received Reports Es
timating the Number of Boers In the
Field at 15,000- Rebels Getting
31any Recruits From Cape Colony.
Nnw YoRK, Sept. 26.-Concerning the
South African situation the London cor
respondent of The Tribune says:
While there are no fresh reverses in
South Africa, there is an undertone of
public discontent with the conduct of
the war and the results of paper diplom
acy. Olubmen of all parties are laugh
ing heartily over Gould's effective car
toon, entitled "On the Links of the
Empire." To Golfer Asquith, comment
ing casually of the unsatisfactory war
news, Golfer Balfour replies:
"What war; the South African? Why
I thought that was finished on the fif
teenth. We fixed the date."
That cartoon, with characteristic poses
of both men, expresses grimly the pub
lic impatience over what is now gen
orally regarded as a silly farce in at
tempting to end hostilities by proclama
tion. Mr. Chamberlain has always been
credited with the authorship of -the
proclamation, and his enemies, Tory
and Radical alike, do not spare him.
Equally effective strictures are found in
the Conservative journals, like the St.
James Gazette, upon the appointment
of Generals Buller, Wood and the Duke
of Conneaught as commanders of the
first three army corps under the scheme
Mr. Kruger has just received reports
estimating the rebels in the field at 15,
000. Probably this is a greatly exag
gerated number, but the Boers are still
getting many recruits in Cape Colony.

"The transactions of the week indi

from valley furnaces, and it is estimated
that 80,000 to 40,000 tons were taken by
the leading interests, not to mention
Apwards of 10,000 tons of basic iron.
Thes purchases, in addition to some
me by other steel companies, proba

MR. CARNEWiE'S PLANS.
New York Paster Talks of the Great
NEw Yon, Sept. 28.-Home from
Scotland after spending the summer as
the guest of Andrew Carnegie at Skibo
castle, the Rev. D. S. Mackay, pastor of
the Fifth Avenue Collegiate church, in
an interview, told of the development
of Mr. Carnegie's philanthropic Dlans,
of his intention to return to the United
States in November and Mrs. Carnegie's
co-operation with her husband in dis.
pensing the great Carnegie fortune.
Mr. Mackay said:
"Mr. Carnegie is a very busy man.
His latest benefaction was to provide
the churches of Scotland with organs.
So far his secretary told me there had
been provisions for 350 organs, costing
from $1,500 to $3,000, so that nearly
$1,000,000 must have been expended in
this way. Mrs. Carnegie is fond of
music, and although nis munificence
threatens the popularity of the bagpipe,
I believe the organs will do much to
soften the austerity of the church ser
"Mrs. Carnegie has entered heart and
soul into her husband's plans. Mr. and
Mrs. Carnegie and their daughter Mar
gayet will return to New York on the
steamship St. Lotis early in November.
Their New York home will not be ready
for occupancy by that time, but they
have decided to come, anyway, and
there will be no change in their plans.
"Mr. Carnegie's only reference to
business matters while I was with him
related to the strike of the steelworkers.
He said he could have prevented the
strike if he had been in Pittsburg to
confer with the men."

PORT TowNswND, Wash., Sept. 25.
According to reports from Nome,
brought by the steamer Oregon, the
Indians of that section are threatened
with starvation. During the past few
months about 300 natives have via.
ited Nome, bringing furs to trade for
supplies. As soon as their goods were
disposed of, however, whisky peddlers
got among them and they exchanged
the proceeds of their sales for liquor.
The Indians have again camped on1
the beach generally in a drunken stupor,
allowing the season to pass, in which
they could lay in supplies of fish for use
during the long winter period. Unless
they are assisted by the government it

Destitute miners from outlving dis

States ship Bear on Aug. 31 landed 18
men at Nome. These men were found
on the beach at Kotzebue sound, penni

some months been living upon what fish
they could catch and game they could
kill. This party joined in the rash to
Kotzebue in 1898 and have been there
ever since. They report that during
three years they failed to find more
than a few colors of gold.
The Nome banks have given out an
estimate of the output of gold for that
district for the season. They place the
amount at $5,000,000, which is only
$500,000 more than last year. .

Curios!ties oz ne Cacao Tree.
The cultivation of cacao, saysi a writer
In The Scientific American, is an Invit
Ing agricultural pursuit in Trinidad
and parts of Venezuela. The cacao tree
cannot withstand strong sunshine, and
the young plants have to be shaded by
banana or plantain trees and later,
when they attain their growth, by tall
trees known as "immortelles." or the
"mother of the cacao." These make a
kind of canopy over the entire planta
tion. The fruit of the cacao tree is a pod
resembling a cucumber and growing on
the trunk or large branches, where it
"looks as though if were artificially at

lima beans imbedded in pulp. These

Hlow to Treat a Cook.
"Into no department in life," says
Yuan Mci, a Chinese authority on
cooking, "should Indifference be allow
ed to creep; into none less than into the
domain of cookery. Cooks are but mean
fellows, and if a day is passed without
either rewarding or punishing them
that day is surely marked by negli
gence or carelessness on their part. If
badly cooked food is swallowed in si
lence, such neglect will speedily be
come a habit. Still, mere rewards and
punishments are of no use. If a dish is
good, attention should be called to the
why and the wherefore. If -bad, an ef
fort should be made to discover the
cause of the failure."
