Friday IhH store, beginning at I) o'clock in the morning (and sometimes at S), staits the selling of
merchandise considerably less than actual Asilue for GO minutes at a clip? If there is, we trust
that this is sufficient explanation.

Ave need haidly tell jou that the prices aie extraordinarily low.
Anything will be "charged' that jou desire and satisfactory terms will be ai ranged.

NEW YORK, March 22. One of the most
Interesting documents that -have come
from South Africa since the beglnlng of the
Boer war a half a year ago. Is a copy of
tho "Express," a local paper published in
Bloemfontein, O. F. S , the very first paper
of the dark continent to reach America
since tlu Hocrs began their struggle for
permanent fir doui A copy of this paper
dated Janu.tij .t, was received yesterday
by Charles D. Pitice, Consul General of tho
Orange Fiee State in New York. The
paper is printed, half in English and half
in the peculiar Boer Dutch. Some extracts
taken from different parts of it and trans
lated are ab follows:
John D anwyk, a 16-y ear-old lad, who
had never been away from his farm, wrote
to his parents about the storming of Pla
trand on January C'
"Dear Parents: I want to tell you some
thing about the fighting It was a terrible
thing for me. I was on top of the kopje
with the advance of our men Two Eng
lishmen came up to within thirty feet of
me I shot them botli dead. Kootje Co
dendaal came to me and said we would bet
ter say good-by before the fighting got to
be too hot. He and I were chums, you
know. Then he went up with ten boys to
capture a gun. Thej got the gun, but
Kootje was killed.
"I have been here a daj. praying and
fighting I am wondering hov anj of us
got out alive, but the Lord has helped us
out, and for this we cannot be too thank
ful to Him Father and mother, pray for
us ail the time Wc are expecting more
fighting soon, but not with our laager. It
will be on the Tugela."
From the Boer laager at Heilbron an
other young Boer. Pierre Theron, under
date of January 23, says:
"Last Sunday we had a talk from Dr.
Duplessis, of Lindley, who made a stir
ring address. What a pleasure to hear a
learned man address us under God's can
opy, with cannon muzzles pointing their
noses at us from the enemy's position!
How happy we will be when we can again
worship God in our own little church, un
hindered by greedy, unprincipled Eng
lishmen! "On Saturday we had a sham alarm,
which helped to keep us In good fight
ing trim There was considerable firing,
but we saw- nothing except a few torch
lights in the distance and a searchlight.
Later in the day we took part in the
fighting at Platrand With the help of
God we were able to maintain our posi
tion and take over 100 prisoners of war.
"Oh, it was a terrible sight for me, who
had never been on a battlefield before, to
sec over fifty dead and wounded lying
about' Qh, what a spectacle it was! It
is terrible to have to believe that the
thirst for cold can cause the spilling of
so much innocent blood Where are
Rhodes, Chamberlain, and Mllner? I wish
that they could only see for a moment
how many have dropped in the bloom of
their lives and to hear the cries of the
wounded.
"Never will I forget it Here one asks
for a drink of water to allay his thirst;
there is another, writhing in a big pool of
blood, in another place, a poor fellow is
struggling to fight on with one leg shat
tered under him and holding on to his gun
with the one arm that he has left It is
terrible, terrible! Oh, England, how great
is your responsibility' I hope that all
burghers, aided by Almighty God, will not
rest until this trouble is settled for good
and ever With Him and His might, we
shall be able to-do brave deeds "

forces, that invested Lady smith, sends an

The Commissioner of Internal Revenue
yesterday, in answer to an enquiry re
ceived by him from the General Solicitor
of the Illinois Central Railroad Company,
regarding the tax on copies of bills of
lading, ruled that the word "duplicate,"
as used in the paragraph of schedule A,
headed "Express and Treight," includes
all copies, and every copy of any instru
ment evidencing the receipt and forward
ing of goods issued by the carrier, or his
agent, must bear a 1-cent tamp, and any
memorandum made on the same that it
is "merely a copy," "not a bill of lading."
"not a duplicate," etc, will have no ef
fect to exempt the copy from taxation as
a duplicate.

Imaginative conception; the poetry and dream of passion are
in it; the sunshine of romance, the magic and picturesque situ

oned with all this we are moved to a warmer admiration- by the
manner in which Mr. Castle makes his personages live, causes
their adventures and their environment to seem as natural as
they are new and exciting. The book is full of vitality
and atmophere." New York Tribune.
