Sullivun, too, ex pressed the opinion that Silva's frienda iroold exme to bis r. .soue on a-ount of his vrife and children. Mr. Sullivan said that. until recently, he had no reason whatever to doubt Silva's hor.csiy, so far as his busi ness relations with him were concerned.

The young couple entertained their frlenils at their home in lordly slyle. and their enter tainments were a featuro of tile fcociai eir cle in which they moveel.

One day In the spring of 1SJ3 mercantile and s.H-ial circles of the city w re shocked lo learn that Silva nas a defaulter to the ti nt of fl'.(-. He was arrsted and in dicted for embezzlement. An investigation of his books, whi.'h were In a tangled con dition, showed that he bad been stealing for years.

Tile short age fuic.d the Itainwat r-lloogher Hat I'ompany Into tl-e handi of a receiver, who eventually wound up the affairs of the con cern. Silva employed competent counsel and made a stublorn light. The trial was te- j dious and bitterly e .ntested. but at the ex piration of a. year be was convicted and sentenced to three jears In th- iienitentl ary. His xif's devotion to him was so steadfast as to win the admiration and sym IKithy even of the men whom he had bank rupted.

The xx-onderfully actlxe Canadlani nnel Aus tralians had already trax-er"eel exi-ry foot of It tlmo and again, causing all tho annei ISoers to abandon their lositions. Now .ur Incursion has sent tho tet e)f xii In habitants to follow tho armed men. at th cost eif the abandonment of an extensive rv;!on. On IJaMngton's march alone we saw six or sex-m empty hou-es, representing a loss to tho Republic eeiual to tho same number of enormous farms xvhlch are peculiar to that country. One place xxhlch xve x-islted, known as Ham Ham. had for montlta sent a commando of seventy or eighty Uoer3 from tho neighborhood xxho fought us at liclmonl and Gran lin or Enslin. Then the Xorthatnptons routed them In a small action. They xxill not again cor.centrate at Itam Ham to enjoy their homes or xvork their farnt3 till the xvar ends. The; houses ef the younger I.ubbej had been prepared for ns. Insulting sentence.s having b"cn charcoaleel on tho xvails, re minding us of tho fate3 of Colley and Jameson nnd bldillng us bexvare a selmilar end. One of the most curious sentences was to the effect that a man's property should lie- respected, and added: "If you iii'iM-ct mint, we may remain friends." In ex cry house xve found an abundance of pn-of that the Inhabitants had been ac tlxo In the war. At ex'ery farm the Katllrs who remsice-el in their peculiar ox-al huts xvelcomed us warmly. The destruction of thtse three farmhouses; may fcem a small result for a three dajs' expedition, yet 1 suspea that tho Hocrs al ready consider it xvorse than the capture of a commando and will feci it more us time goes on. I understand that a small force, which went from Honey Nest Kloof, had their pickets llred on near Jacobsdal. but our nearest arrroach to a discharge of rifles was when we mistook a swarm of Australians for Itocrs. Scxeral times In this war llemlngton'a Scouts, the Australians and the Canadians havo had narrow escapes because of their xx earing ".-masker " hata, like the Uoers. Iteforo the war ends all the Ilrltish troops will bo ordered to don helmets as a badge of nationality. Then, if the Highlanders bo required to cast aside their kilts and put on trousers, the costuming of our troops will be perfect. TO JOIN LORD ROBERTS.

Reports that C.denso and GrobIers Kloof hax-e been abandoned by the Boers are not true, huxvex'er. as one correspondent telej graplis that the Boers are still at Colenso. while another says the Boers have mounted another gun at Grobler's Kloof. The censor evidently are determined that nothing Khali come through from Puller's army till his mox-ement has been com pleted, but amongst much that Is dubious and uncertain In the situation i-i Natal, there !". nexerthe-Iers. a growing feeling that Bull-r'. turning movement are hax--tng real and possibly deeislve results. Facts that s-em xvell a-syred ore few. but suilt as they are, they all pclnt In the sama direction. Buller has not been beard from since his nrrlval at 1'otgletei's Drift, with tho enemy four and a half miles In front cf him. Jt Is f.aM that General Warren has crossed the Tiisela at what t.oint Is not mentioned: that some British eax-alry aro on the north side of the rlx-er. The ap- parent ease with xvhlch Buller made his wax xvestxxarel and crossed the Little Tuge la IeuJ natiirallx' to the supposition that Springfield is not held by that contingent of i.eer with gui'ri x.hii h xxas reiiorte-d seme aed .strong psltlons. the inferenre is t atural that their line, because of Its ex tension cxer txventy mile- was too weak that prudence dictated concentration, proh-ablx- near Ondertrook. Simultaneously menaced on the eist and xxi'st. they must d; on of two thlngs- Ither collect their forces in some strongly Intrenched positlem. xx hence they must bo dislodged by assault l-ofore Ludysmlih can be relieved, cr else Joutert Is retreating from Colenso and will fall upon Butler's column with his whole strength, hoping to tush him liefore a-slstun?a can lie ren dered by Warren. The second alternative seems much mors plausible, for It would account for tho rapid removal of the Boer commandos fiom the Immediate iielghKirhoeiel of th rlvtr. A good road goes nictlixxest from Bulxver Bridge 'i.xvard- Ruoele Poort and Dexxdrop, past Onelerbrook. If tho Boerj ax-alled themselv s of this route, they would interre'pt Buller on his march from Potgleter's l'ritt northward to Iietysmltli anil ceimpel him to ace'ept battle.'. If theso supfo-itl' ns are even approximately cor ns'!, there mii-t In some h-ax-y lighting going on northxxet of Colenso anil closa to Dexxdrop. o! which xxe may receive news at any moment. From Lidx-mith comes another roster of death and disease, showing that the gar rlsjn is suffering under the strain of tho siege. To xxhat extent While's column xvlll be able to co-ope-rate xxlth the relief col umn is uncertain. The men must be ex hausteel and the hores out of condition. They cannot be gooel for much till they have hail some xxeeks' re-t. Thus the nom inal strength--.-) im-n and sixteen suns does not represent a lighting fv-rce at Lady smith.
