BOTHA LOSES NOTHING
EVACUATES A STRONG POSITION,

London, June 15. That Command
ant General LouU Botha should hare
beeenable to stand for twodaysagrainst
Lord Huberts and then to retreat with
out losing any guns or bavins any of
his men capturedfwhich be has done)
is taken to mean that he has a force
which the British must still reckon as
formidably when acting defensively-
lhe iiacilicatjon of the whole of the
Transvaal, especially the wide spaces
far from the railways, is looked upon
a a business requiring months rather
Than weeks. Meanwhile everytbin
toes well for the British arms.
A Boer bulletin Issued June 12 at
Maehadodorp'sald: "Both wings of
the federal forces touched the ad van
clng enemy at 1 a. ui. yesterday east
of Pretoria. Fighting continued until
dark. The enemy, though In over
whelming" numbers. were checked
along a line of thirty-six miles, and
the burghers succeeded in driving back
their right wing tive miles. Two
burghers were killed and ten wound
Another Mac hadodorp announce
ment is that the first regiment of Gen
eral Bulier's force to attack Almond's
Nek was "annihilated," but as the
British were In overwhelming force,
the burghers were compelled to aban
don the nek.
A dispatch from Lourenzo Marques,
dated yesterday says: "President Kru-
ger is holding on to his gold anil issu
ing paper notes from a press In hi ex
ecutive car. Some who have declined
tonccept notes havetaken their salaries
in gold bars, and unstamped disks.
Ooneral Iluller will be unable to ad
vance farther until he gets supplies.
Nearly every farm house his troops
passed flew a white flag. The British
took nothing without pnying for it.
One woman whose husband and two
sons have been fighting said: "You
British are unlike our people. They
took my horses in exchange for sheep
and mealies, and made me make but
ter, which they never paid for. I am
sending to have my men come home at
once." Usually the first question a Boer
woman puts, is: "Will my husband be
shot If he is captured?" one young
man was pulled from under a bed. and
he went on his knees begcing the Brit
ish tKitrol not to shoot him.
Preparing; For a "DwI.
Ono of the most remarkable docu
ments that have ever come uudex our
observation is to be found in the case
of ex parte Scoggin, C Tex. App. 54f.
Mr. Scoggin was under indictment for
the murder of one William Gerrard,
and an extract from a memorandum
book in defendant's handwriting and
found near the body ran as fellows:

As this mar loe the last penciling that 1 may

of us has to die May heven bliss us. as this is the
last half hour on earth with one of us, hevca

Jirod, Burnt! in Illinois.
Mr. Scoggln's piety apparently
brought victory to him in the "dcwel,"

The only way to cure Catarrh is to kill the germs. There are two classes of
treatment in tue, both of which are objectionable: one class consist of internal
nitdicints and drugs, ai-plied as sprays, vapors, impregnated cir,i.te.,hicb simply
stupefy the germs, causing them to
t:ce, when ihey revive and continue
ccstrt-ctlin. This is why to many treatments cf Catarrh give temporary relief
end Cue the I aticnt fc r a time to think be has been cured.
The other class of treatments consists cf surgical work the knife, burning,
electricity, etc. which often result in troubles worse even than Catarrh itself,
and which fail even to kill the germs i:i a" majority of cases.
Dr. Geo. Leinlnger's FORMALDEHYDE INHALER kills the germs without
injuring the mucous membrane, and also puts the membrane in such a condition
of health and acti vity that new germs of Catarrh entering the body cannot live
and breed in it. Catarrh can be cured by this means in every stage, except when
there is actual decay of the lung cells (Consumption), and in many cases even tins
has been done. There is positively r.o other remedy, drug or treatment which
will cure Catarrh, Asthma, Bronchitis, Ladrippe, and Consumption.
Dr. Geo Lciningcr s FORMALDEHYDE INHALER has opened & new era to the medical
profession and the public in the treatment of Catarrh. A few years ago it vas unknown to-day
it is recognized throughout the civilized world as the most powerful germicide and antiseptic ever
discovered The marvelous cures effected by Dr. Geo. Leininger'sYormaldehyde Inhaler have
astonished the ablest medical men of the century. L'sed, as it is, by inhalation, all the air passages
are instzntlv cleared, cleansed and purified, thereby producing an' absolute cure of ail diseases of
the NOSE, THROAT and LUNGS Never in the history of a medicine have the endorsements
keen so universal from physicians, and the people who have used them and been cured, as with

NEW ENGLISH BIBLE.
The XfW Tcatnment Ia "Placed Before
The Sunday School Supply of London
Is publishing now a new Uible lu which
the New Testament precedes the Old.
"An apolojry," by Mr. Stailcy, the de
signer, takes the place of the usual
preliminary dedication '"to the most
high and mighty Prince James, by the
grace or boil," etc., iroin wuicn tne
following paragraph Is quoted, says the
New York Journal:
The Old Testament is meant as a
candlestick upon which the New Testa
ment should stand, yet we have largely
made it an extinguisher which puts out
Us light. A reversion of the order of
the two great sections of the Bible
seems therefore a necessity if the Old
Testament is not to prove an obstruc-
tion to Intellectual and spiritual growth
and if the New Testament Is to retain
its place foremost among those divine
realities which satisfy the permanent
wants of man's nature. If the Chris
tian Scripture is the medium by which
we draw near the supremo manifesta
tion of God on earth, should it not be
placed first in fact as well as theory?"
It should be stated that Mr. Starley
makes it plain that he does not In the
least degree minimize the value of the
Hebrew Scriptures, only he thinks they
should take a second place.
The new title page which Mr. Starley
supplies reads thus: "Holy Bible: the
gospel of Jesus Christ the Son of Cod;
also the Old Testament, containing the
promises of God through his prophets
of the ancient Hebrew race." What
favor the Kible in this shape will meet
with remains to be seen. A good deal
can be said for Mr. Starley's arrange
ment, and a good deal could be urged
against it the type and shadow of the
Old Testament leading up to the New.
It may be mentioned that Mr. Starley
ruggested the desirability of the change
to several leaders of religious thought,
but did not meet with the practical
sympathy he anticipated and has had
to carry it out himself. An "Index to
the Bible'' finds a place In the volume.
Cattle Startetl For the Bnrn.
In the middle of the eclipse of the
sun the other morning when the haze
obscured the sun about 40 head of cat
tle in Hedden's pastures, near Water
ford, Conn., started toward the barn
and could not be induced to return to
the pasture until the sun began to
shine again, says the New York Sun.
The twilight effect of the eclipse evi
dently misled the animals, and that
sense which leads them to seek shelter
cn the approach of darkness started
them for the cow barn.
