Hint .Major General French had driven the
Boors out of Colesbcrg by a clever Hank
ing movement. The incidental engage
ment was unimportant, considered as a
fight but the adventure as a whole reflects
great credit upon French, and will settle
the point in the Hritisli raind, official or
unofficial, that there is but one way to
conduct the war in South African, and that
is to render the nritish array at lca.t as
iaabile as its antagonist.

It has frequently been remarked that
truth is stranger than fiction; and it is
.Jbo a fact that things which happen in
real life arc often funnier than the wildest
imagination of the humorist. Mark Twain
in his palmiest days. Tom Hood. Charles
Dickens none of that royal order of fun
makor could have conceived anything
more exquisitely humorous ,than a letter
which appears in the "Christian Scienco

are invaluable ris a facility in the profita
ble management of the lines. The" growth
of railways throughout the country and
the world has made a more spirited de
mand for men skilled in the various de
partments. It has become necessary that
some Inducements outside of steady wages
shall be offered for the retention of capa
ble employes now engaged in the American
service. The prospect is that the action
of the large corporations referred to will
be imitated throughout the United States.
To a man engaged in railroading, which,
in every sense, is a most hazardous occupa
tion, the pension policy is hound to make a
strong appeal. It is an irresistible induce
ment for him to remain with the com
pany for a stifllcient number of years, and
to so conduct himself during that period
as to merit the annuity promised when he
has reached the retiring age.
Any policy that will make it practically
assured of the continued and conscientious
service of competontTmcn, and those who
have learned to use discrimination in every
emergency because of yeurs of practical
experience, is a good one for such a gigan
tic institution as the railroad to adopt.
There can be no doubt that the directors
of the railways meutioned considered all
of these things carefully before they de
termined to invest certain sums of money
as a pension fund for their faithful cm
ployes. There is another feature which may have
had a strong influence in bringing about
the railway pension. When peace in South
Africa has been restored, there is promise
of a rapid development of the hitherto dark
continent. Such an era of enterprise as
seems destined to follow after grim-visaged
war has smoothed his wrinkled front means
net only lhe completion of the Cape to
Cairo steel way. but, in all probability, the
inception of many other ventures of a
similar character, which in this hurtling
age will soon gridiron the new Africa with
the metallic arteries of commerce. This
will create a demand for experienced rail
road men. and the inducements that v ill
probably be offered will attract thousands
of the capable employes from this and
other countries. Such a depletion of the
skilled forces of the American railway
tory, it not evasive, in that it informs the mounted police will furnish a steadying I HmwS w Sa Aitfe. bm-wwHwh, Caaw "fawn

of the Hon. June Gayle to Washington is
being ausiously awaited by his Democratic
colleagues. The gentleman of the mete

Blackburn, not to mention the Hon. W.
C. P. Breckinridge and various other Keu

while the tunnels, large enough to carry

The modern tunnel is destined to replace

em a piece of treacherous ice and breaks
his bones, he becomes acutely conscious
that he needs these bones in his business,
just as Mrs. Eddy is conscious that she
needs three tea jackets. In the case of
the bones. Mrs. Eddy tells him to lie still
in the snow and pray and the bones will
be made whole. If his faith is not stronsr
enough, he is to call one or two Christian
Scientists and add their faith to his own
at so much an hour. In course of time his
bones, which arc not material, will be
knitted together by a miracle, and a num
ber of "greenbacks, which are material,
will pass from his pocket to that of his
"healer" without any miracle. The ques
tion which the average public would like
to have settled is how one is to distinguish
between material and immaterial things,
and why money and lea jackets should be
long to the one class and the human body
to the other. Another mysterious thing
is that cures arc sometimes said to be
effected by "absent treatment" when the
healer does not make his appearance, but
brings his will power to bear on the pa

In view of flic rapidly increasing number of
applications for pensions arising out of the Span-ij-h-Ainerican
and Philippine wars, the necessity
for further revision and codification of the Federal
Iension laws has been stroiiRly impressed upon
Congress. There is now pendiaj in the Bouse a
bill which paf-sed the Senate before the holidav
adjournment providing for a non-partian coni
mitsion of five members to undertake the task.
It is hoped that by tliM means the ambiguities
and uncertainties now cumbering the pension
laws may be removed, and a permanent rode
constructed which might be administered with re
sults satisfactory to all parties concerned.

tor Chandler starts on a crusade he usually
makes such a tremendous noise as to at least
attract national attention, and if he should
prosecute his charges against Commission

compel the President to take some public

been given renewed interest by Senator
Gallinger's victory in the grand jury at

that its echo will soon resound in the Sen
