Purposes of British Government
Made Plain by Chamberlain.
Birmingham, England, May 14.
Joseph Chamberlain, secretary of state
for the colonies, presided at the an
nual meeting of the grand committee
of the Liberal Unionists of Birming
ham, the occasion being his first
appearance here since the outbreak of
the war. Turning to the question of
condition of affairs in the South
African settlement and the fate of the
republics, Mr. Chamberlain said: "It
is premature to discuss details, but I
am quite ready to take the opinions of
the country, and, above all, the opin
ions of those self-governing colonies,
which have come so magnificently to
our assistance. While the government
does not wish to be vindictive, they
are determined that never again shall
the republics be a nursery of con
spiracy, and they will see that justice
is done to those who are determined to
be loyaL The government is not pre
pared to recognize the independence of
the Boer republics (cheers); and we are
determined that the republics shall be
finally incorporated under the British
flag. For an interval there must be a
crown colony, such as India is; but we
hope they will eventually become a
great self-governing colony like Can
ada and Australia."

Against More Than One Women's
Society With Each Post.
Topeka, May 12. Department Com
mander' Coulter in his address to the
Grand Army encampment protests
against the chartering of more than
one Women's Aid Society in connection
with a single post of the brotherhood
He said:
"It may not be out of place, in fact I
feel it my duty to say, that the pend
ing court martial is the culmination of
difficulties growing out of the organ
ization of a second woman's organiza
tion claiming a place in the affections
.the post. Tliis question of the Wom
an's Relief corps and the Ladies of the
G. A. R. organizations have been caus
ing trouble among the posts in this
department for some years. At Chan
ute, Manhattan and Atchison, this
question caused the organization of a
second post, thus causing additional
burdens upon the old comrades that
they can illy afford to bear. At Wich
ita and several other places the same
conditions prevail. There are now
two posts in this department that are
strong in membership and in good
condition otherwise, that for the past
year have been struggling with the
contentions of these two women or
ganizations and unless something is
soon done these posts will die and
leave the women to fight over their
graves. It is impossibls to keep the
comrades from taking sides in the
women's contentions.
"There is in my judgment but one
solution, if consolidation of these or
ganizations cannot be effected, and
that is to so far as possible to discour
age and condemn the organization of a
Ladies of the G. A. R. where a corps of
t,he W. R. C. is in existence as a post's
auxiliary and where a post has adop
ed a circle' of the Ladies of the G. A. R.
as their helpmate, that no relief corps
attempt to organize; and as a farther
disapproval, if the department would,
by resolution, say to the department
presidents of these organizations, that
that 'if you charter one of your socie
ties where there already exists one of
the other woman organizations, your
action will meet with the condemna
tion of this encampment."'
Department Commander Coulter's
utterances on the conflict between the
two auxiliary organizations, the Wom
en's Relief Corps, and the ladies of the
Grand Army of the Republic, have
made the women of each organization
very angry. They deny that there is
any conflict and declare that his re
marks were entirely out of place.
Corbett Goes Down to Jeffries. .
Coney Island, May 14. The contest
between Corbett and Jeffries resulted
in Corbett's being knocked out in the
twenty-third round, i In the previous
round he was badly worsted, but up to
that time had been showing the best
work and the least punishment. The
sympathies and the cheers of the bru
tal crowd at the brutal exhibition,
throughout the fight were with Cor
bett, and Jeffries was refused cheers
which a few attempted to start when
the end came.

Kansas City, May 14. The union

learned no decision to strike was ar
rived at, though Harry' Bryan, the
union's national organizer, declared
that the men would not wait for the
company to better its post ion. A strike

Bed Legs in Michigan.
Troy, Berrien Co., Mich., May 11.
This section is covered with red-legged
grashoppers or locusts. An immense
swarm came from the west and as they
alighted a vast area of land changed
color. Every little creature veered
himself around head to wind and the
countless multitude attacked vegeta
tion. In an incredibly short time the
insects had eaten tip every green thing
and after the grass and leaves were
.devoured they ate th? bark off shrubs
and trees. Then they flew away.
Five Farms Now Carried on in the
, United States.
There are now five ostrich farms in
the United States two in California,
one in Texas, one in Florida, and one
in Arizona. The last named, although
the youngest, is the largest and most
flourishing in the country. It is lo
cated near Phoenix, and the Salt river
valley seems well adapted to the. Af
rican ostrich. No protection whatever
is required for the birds during the
winter. They graze the entire year in
the fields, the same as horses and cat
tle, and are healthy and thrifty. The
man in charge of the Arizona farm,
who spent 15 years handling ostriches
in South Africa, says the birds do just
as well in the Salt River valley as in
Africa, and that the climatic and other
conditions surrounding them here seem
as well adapted to their requirements
as those existing in their native home.
After the birds attain the age of four
weeks there is little danger of their
dying from natural causes for many
years. It is not positively known how
long an ostrich will live under normal
conditions.but there arc birds on South
African farms which are believed to
have reached or passed the century
mark, many of them having been in
captivity there over fifty years. Most
people have the idea, obtained, prob
ably, from their old geographites when
they were children, that the female
ostrich, after laying her eggs n a nest
scooped out of the desert sands, cov
ers them up with the sand and leaves
them, trusting to the heat of the sun
to hatch them. This is not the fact
The birds always pair off during the
breeding season, the male bird making
the nest by resting his breastbone on
the sand and turning slowly round and
round, scratching the sand away with
his feet until a shallow hole is made,
some three feet in diameter and about
a foot deep. The female then lays, usu
ally, 15 eggs, and the birds take turns
sitting on them, the female sitting
during the daytime and the male at
night, except that the male allows the
female about an hour in the middle of
the day to feed, when he takes her
place on the nest. Boston Herald.
An Incident with Complications Just a
Little Ont of the Usual.
"It always disturbs me," said Mr.
Biflington, "to see a man on the ele
vated road offer his seat to a woman
when he is about to get off; he has
perhaps let her stand in front of him
for blocks, and now when he is about
to give up his seat anyway he makes
a show of giving it to her, a curious
exhibition of about three-quarters con
ceit and the rest cheek. Usually the
woman pays no attention to this man;
she takes the seat without thanks,
without taking any notice of the man
whatever. But occasionally there is a
variation of this incident. Bitting in
an end corner seat, by the door, was
a tired man, who, in a crowded car had
kept his seat seemingly because he
thought it was right that he should
if he had thought it out at all but
who now when he was about to leave,
wanted to have the right person get
the seat he was leaving. With this
idea in his mind.and not with any con
ceit of gallantry, he, when he had
risen, touched the sleeve of a young
woman who had been standing by the
door on the other side of the car op
posite to him, to indicate to her that
here was a seat. He was slow about
this, with the slowness of one tired,
or unaccustomed to asserting himself,
and while he was stepping forward a
small boy who had been standing by
the door slid in back of him with boy
ish celerity and took the seat. ' And
hi kept it." New York Sun.
The Mother Love,
It is given to few people to under
stand the workings of the child mind,
and it is only by the exercise of pa
tience and the utmost sincerity that
one can get to know the ideas and de
sires that are formed in the ever busy
little brains. A pretty story was once
told by Sir Edwin Arnold of three
children of hisxacquaintance, whom he
asked at their bed time, when about
to say their prayers, if they would
pray for what they wanted most. After
the two eldest had made their requests,
the youngest, a little girl, knelt down
and, putting her hands together, said:
"Dear God, love me when I am naugh
ty, like mamma." ,
