"We captured over 20 wagons, many c-f which were loaded with ammunition, a ml also a .Masim, 20 prisoners aJid over l''o .horses. The troops are stilj in close j.ursuit." The Pall Mali Magazine publishes an Interview with Mr. Kruger, in part as follows: "Will no one arbitrate? Will no one eive us a chance of defending ourselves? AVe may have done wrongly: we have tur faults and our weaknesses. We de clared war, but our hands were forced, and we can prove it. Get some one to Judge between this England and our selves "But the Lord will help us in the end. We shall win. I do not know how or hen. but we shall win at last." When asked why he came to Europe, tie said to the interviewer: "I could not go out with the com mandoes, as Mr. Steyn can. I am too uhl, but I may be of some use here." Regarding Mrs. Kruger, he said: "I am sorry for her. too. I have a deep sorrow for her, but 1 have far more Borrow for my country.

Sometimes children become willful and refuse nourishing food, demanding tweets, candy, ice cream, etc., much to their detriment. It is a great help in such cases to have a food that is nat urally sweet and attractive. A case in Phila. will illustrate. The daughter or Mrs. M. E. Searles. living at 131 Mifflin St.. was a delicate child from infancy and had been in dulged in many things. She gradually KOt thinner and more fretful daily, re fusing food other than sweets, etc., final ly contracting whooping cough which undermined her health to such an extent that her attending physicians agreed that her cough Jiad developed, into bronchial catarrh, and that only a short time would ensue l.efore consumption would relieve her sufferings. In despair, the child's aunt was sent for. and knowing the wonderful nutri tive value of Grape-Nuts food, she pre pared some and induced the little one to eat it. At the first taste she said: "Oh auntie, this is so nice. I want some more." From that time the child ac quired an appetite and began to im prove. She was fed on Grape-Nuts :-: .-.!- until now she is a perfect lv tiealthy, strong child, attends the Girls' Grammar School, and is a bright and 8-jr't pupil. t - ! i . I i i , J. $ Superlative in.

W. I. Womer, deputy county treas urer of Smith county, was a senate vis itor yesterday. ! The cattlemen did not get all they wented in the railroad bill but they are not complaining.

Et has held that position before and made a good secretary. The senate has refused to agree with the house resolution to buy a lot more bill and calendar files on the grounds they were not necessary. The supreme Judges can probably wor ry along on $3,000 per year. The bill in creasing their .salaries to 13,000 was de feated in the senate by a vote of 21 to 4. The bill authorizing a levy for special improvements in cities of the first class was turned down by the senate com mittee on assessment and taxation yes terday. Treasurers of boards' of education and city treasurers will continue? to pay for their own surety bonds. The bill to re quire the cities to pay the cost of the bonds was defeated yesterday. Senator McMillan voted against the bill to amend the law relating to wage earners. His position was that it was not the wage earners who beat the mer chants out of small bills but that it was the semiprofeasional men.

Stanley's bluff about not sign ing local bills after February 15 had the effect of making the members rush their local bills. There remain about 200 which have not been passed and now the gov ernor says he will sign them when they reach him. Senator Sponsable introduced a resolu tion yesterday authorizing the governor to appoint a commission to investigate the matter of voting machines and to report to the governor within 18 months. The commission is to be composed of two senators and three representatives. The purpose is to Belect some kind of an automatic voting machine at a small cost. FUNERAL OF MILAN. Corpse of Hia Grandmother Found in Remarkable State of Preservation. Karloquitz, Austria-Hungary, Feb, 16. Large crowds assembled et the rail road station here this morning awaiting the arrival of the remains of former King Milan of Servia. Funeral arches draped with black and flying mourning flags were erected at the entrance of the town.the prinicpal square and elsewhere. Many houses were draped and the patriarchal palace was profusely dec orated with emblems of mourning. A special train was in readiness at the frontier town of Serulin, to bring any guests of Servia desirous of attend ing: but it is understood the authorities at Belgrade were placing the difficulties in their way. Great trouble was experienced in car rying out King Milan's wish to be buried by the side of his great grandmother, Ljubieza Obrenovitch. wife of Milos, founder of the dynasty. The where abouts of the vault could not be located until a certain centenarian was dis covered who hafl attended the funeral of the princess. When the vault was opened they found that the wooden cofiin had fallen apart and that the corpse w.i3 exposed. It was in. a most remarkable state of preservation. The features were quite recognizable and the pearl ornaments and silk robes of the princess were intact. , i KEEP GOING. New Cure For Conaumption Discov ered by ProX WeinzerL Santa Fe, N.

Prof. Wein zerl of the I'niversity of New Mexico, conducting experiments under the au thority of the university biological de partment, has evolved what he pro nounces a complete cure for consump tion. By careful testing he announces he has determined that the transitory effects upon the blood corpuscles of a person passing from a lower to a higher altitude are renewed by frequent change of altitude. By occasional visits to the. sea level, he says, the system can be re invigorated even when the effects of the bigner altitude have been worn off.

Public Ledger, Philadelphia. The Ledger might have added that this great train averages fifty-three and one-third miles per hour for the entire distance from New York to Buffalo, 440 miles, including four stops and twenty eight slow-downs; that it does this eacli business dav of the year. The attention which the Empire State Express has at tracted in every country of the world has proved one of the greatest adver tisements for American machinery and Americans methods that has ever been put forth, and that the New York Cen tral & Hudson, River Eailroad Com pany is entitled to the thanks of not only the entire State of New York, bot of every person in the United States from one end of the land to the other for placing before the world an object lesson without an equal.

TO GOD." Theosophist Titus Discusses This Sub ject in His Course. F. E. Titus, the iheosophical lecturer, spoke last night at Recital hall. 113 West Eighth avenue on the subject, "From Atom to God." The address was an attempt to epi tomize the steps of evolutionary prog ress from the lowest to the highest forms of consciousness. The universe is deem ed a living organism, in which there is, not only an evolution of the whole as a living entity, but each particular portion is envolving. Taking the general propo sition of evolution, the speaker claimed that its operation had been discovered in the lowest of forms as well as the highest. If the process of evolution has been eternally at work then we must have somewhere in the universe, beings who have reached almost infinite de grees of development. Huxley thought it an impertinence to assume that there are no beings as much higher than man as man is higher than the black -beetle. This regular gradation is one in which each kingdom, after having reached the limits of its development, steps over into the kingdom above. Man therefore will not always be limited to his present pos. sibilities, but shall ultimately transcend them, and become a divine being. Linked always to the lives which follow him in the slow course of evolution as he is uni ted to those who once stood where he now stands, but now have attained to relative omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence. That also is man's des tiny. On Sunday at 7:.",0 p. m., at the same place Mr. Titus will deliver his last pub lie lecture. Subject: "The Reign of Jus tice." No admission will be charged. TO CURE CONSUMPTION. Important Medical Convention Held in Canada. Ottawa, Feb. 16. One of the most im portant conventions in the history of Canada has been held here at the call or the governor general to discuss meas ures for the prevention of tuberculosis. Eminent members of the medical profes sion from every province of the Domin ion came to take part in the proceed ings. Lord Minto opened the confer ence. Associated with him were Jas. Grant, chairman; Sir William Kings ton, M. D., Montreal; Dr. Borden, min ister of militia; Mr. Fisher, minister of agriculture; Dr. Roddick, member of parliament, and other prominent Cana dians. , I The governor general said he had called the convention to devise means for combatting the ravages of the com mon enemy. He was told that ten years ago the annual deaths from consump tion In Ontario were 2,400; in 1899, they were 3,405; from J887 to iS98, they amounted to 31,699. He believed the an nual estimate now of deaths from the same cause in the whole Dominion is between 7,000 and 8,000. Addresses were delivered and some old prevailing theories regarding consump tion were shattered. Senator Kings ton, -one of the foremost physicians in Canada, declared that tuberculosis is not a hereditary germ. "If it is," he said, "we may simply fold our arms and lie down and die." He declared that for the consolation of those who could not afford it, a change of cli mate was not important and friends should never consent to persons going to Florida or Colorado to die away from home. Dr. Cuerin, of Quebec, said "All doc tors know how curable the disease is; the fresh air and God's sun are the great curative agents, and these can be had anywhere. Sanitariums should be located so that poor men would not have to send members of their families far away." , Dr. Roddick favored cremation in the case of death from all contagious dis eases, and said it should be insisted on by law in case of tuberculosis Several resolutions were adopted to prevent the spread of tuberculosis. Leg islation will be asked in order that sani tariums may be established in each of several Canadian cities, where, under careful medical supervision, the thera peutic effects of dry or moist, high or low, forest or prairie climates, may be scientifically studied and the results published for information of the gen eral public. DR. ABBOTT'S VIEW . Cites Temperance Strife in Kansas as One Peril of Our Nation. Boston", Feb. 16. Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott, in continuing his lectures on "The Perils of the Democracy," last pight said he had full faith that all dan gers to American democracy would be overcome in good time. Some of the things lacking in our nation, he said, are strongly fixed central political au thorities and settled ideas. Dr. Abbott found some weak spots in the American system of deciding politi cal problems by the wish of the ma jority. A multitude give way to ex citement for a time and later return to apathy succeeded by passion, as illus trated by the present situation in Kan sas, where saloons are now being smashed by mobs. Dr. Abbott stated his belief in the right of workingmen to organize. . Hole in the Lungs. There are thousands of men and wo men, as well as ever, with holes in their lungs: consumption stopped. Consumption stopped is consumption cured. What does it? Some change in the way of life and Scott's emulsion of cod-liver oil. With the emulsion, give some atten tion to circumstances: change from a dark damp close room to a sunny dry airy one; from city to country; from hard to an easy life; indoors to out. A hole in the lungs once healed is no worse than a too tight waist or waist coat. Take the emulsion, and give it a chance to heal the wound. i Canada's Trade With Germany. Washington, Feb. 16. Tre.de returns show that Canada imports three times as much from Germany as she exports to that country, says Commercial Agent Boutaspacher, at Moncton, in a recent communication to the department of state. The total value of imports from Germany during 1900 amounted to$7.382. 000. Canada's exports to Germany amounted to $2,200,000. At one time Can ada exported numbers of cattle to Ger many, but under the altered tariff not a single animal has been sent there for three years. The value of Canada's im ports from Germany is only about one-sixteenth of that from the United States. ' Death of Capt. Moore. Denver, Col.. Feb. 16 Captain Edward B.

"While raost of these preparations possess merit, tbey all fail to give relief in a great many cases. The reason for thi Is plain. Pepsin digests only albuminous foods, and descriptions of pepsin preparations usually give the amount of eggs or meat they will digest. But we most live on more than egs and meat; and some of the worst cases of dyspepsia are caused by indi gestion of fats and starches, which pepsin cannot digest. There Is one preparation that contains all t he digestants. It is Kodol Dyspepsia Cvp.e, which digests what you eat, and Las been used with remarkable success, not a single failure to curs being reported from the many thousands who have used it. J. E.
