GREAT FACTORY PIANO SALE!
COR. GR?NBY AND CHARLOTTE STS.
Are you a REASONABLE person ? If so, LISTEN.
HPHERE are two ways of buying a Piano, a right way and a wrong1 way. The wrong way is to go to some firm that you
* have known for years, and without making any further investigation as to prices or quality of instrument, buy a piano
of them and pay their price for it. Is your time so very VALUABLE that you can afford to lose $100 instead of spending
a half a day in getting prices of more than one firm, and then buy WHERE your REASON tells you it is best for you TO
buy. Again, the right way to buy a piano is to go FIRST to the firm that you would like to buy from and after getting
their very LOWELT PRICES, then come to OUR PLACE, and if we cannot show you that we can save you from $50.00
to $100.00 on each and every style that they have offered you, then you can go and buy from the other firm. Since this
SPECIAL SALE has opened we have been told by good parties to whom we have SOLD, that they had been to every place
in the city, and that we had saved them at least $100. Just think of a new $300 piano at $207, and a $200 piano at only
$117. Don't wait till this sale is over and miss the chance of a lifetime.

London, Oct. 9.?The complete dearth
of news since afternoon from the Cape,
on which all attention i3 riveted, is
poorly compensated for by the muss of
minor details published concerning the
preparations for the dispatch of the
army corps and speculation as to the
length and character of, tho debates
when Parliament meets. Iu official cir?

Some indication of the War Office
estimate of the duration of the cam?
paign is given by tlie; fact that the
authorities have contracted for eight
months supplies of broad and other
military requisites rendered necessary
by the absence of the bulk of the army
?sei t ice corps; whom the?War?Office
thus evidently calculates will be at
home again by tho beginning of May.
It appears that although the War Office
called up 25,000 reservists, only the pick
of them, some 5,000, will bo retained
with the colors. The authorities are
pleased at the application of a number
of reservists belonging to the un
mobllizcd classes who are volunteering
for foreign service. The War Office
announces that wives of reservists will
get six pence and each child two pence
daily while the husbands and fathers
are retained with tho colors.
Baron Twecdmouth presided at a
meeting of the Council of London Radi?
cals to-night, which; after a speech by
Lord Twcedmouth, deploring the unwise
policy of tho government, whose dis?
patches, lie declared, were not couched
in conciliatory terms, adopted a resolu?
tion in favor of arbitration and calling
upon the government to lako stops
tending to the settlement of the diffi?
culty with tho Transvaal by negotia?
tions for arbitration.
BIG MILITARY PREPARATIONS.
London, Oct. 0.?The vastness of
Groat Britain's military preparation?
seemingly out of all proportion to the
work in hand in South Africa?was not
fully released by the public until the
War Office announced that 2."i,000 re?
serves had already been summoned to
re-join the colors.
As a matter of fact, General Sir Rcd
vers Buller will have command of
twice as many British soldiers as the
Duke of Wellington, the conquerer of
the first Napoleon, ever saw collected
on one battlefield.
Tho reasons back of this lavish dis?
play are probably a fear of a native
rising and possibly a conviction of the
advisability of showing Europe that
Groat Britain Is prepared to resent any
action resulting from the prevalent
In this connection, the action of the
American Department of State and the
friendly statements of President Mc?
Kinley and Secretary of State Hay
published here are heartily welcomed
as a happy return for Great Britain's
refusal to sanction- continental inter?
vention In tho war between Ihe United
States nnd Spain.
THE BOERS WAITING.
As the Boers failed to attack -Natal
when tho Colony was vulnerable, it le
beginning to be felt that they nre pur?
suing a deliberate policy of waiting for
the British proposals, remaining In the
meantime on the defensive, in the hope
of thus winning the sympathies of the
world and, perhaps, the support of
other nations and leaving to Great Brl
tain the ignomy of starting hostilities.
Jf they await the advance of General
Sir Reavers Butler, it 1s conceivable
that peace will not be broken during
the present year. Should that prove the
case and should the alleged wastage In
the Boer commandoes continue tho
force confronting the British com?
manding general will be neither as
?numerous nor us eillclent as that now
encamped along tho Natal border.
Events have thus seemed to shape
themselves to secure ample pause for
consideration. All tho proposals In the
correspondence between President Stein
of the Orange Free State, and Sir Al?
fred Mlitier, British High Commission?
er In South Africa, show that the ne?
gotiations were proceeding up to Oc?
tober Gth and that neither despaired
of peacc^ Sir Alfred Mllner saying ho
was sure any reasonable proposal would
be favorably considered by the British
President Stein's virtual propasal of

further attempts at conciliation, meets

Our wealth, estimated in 1700 at $4G2,

Education has not been overlooked. The

rest the responsibilities of government,

rolled in public schools in 1S96-97 was

strength to tho Republic?

deeply imbedded in the hearts of the
American people. For half a century
before the Civil war tho union was tho

word has gone out of the American vo?
