The Boers keep whacking: the English army in South Africa, If there was an army of about 25,000 Boers, they would be able to drive the English army out of that country. Pro-Boer meetings are being held all over the United States. Public sentiment in this country is with the Boers, and Congress should pass a resolution sympa tblzing with them. EAST SIDE ITEMS. N. R.

Beginning next Sunday the Rock Island management will inaugurate a new service between Chicago and the Pacific coast, which will be i a hours and 40 minutes faster than any other route to Los Angeles. The present lime of the Rock Is land between Chicago and El Paso, where the cars will be delivered to the Southern Pacific, will be eight hours and forty minutes faster than the present schedule. The new train will be known as the "California- Mexican Express," and will leave Chicago every day at 8:10 in the morning, running through to El Paso without change, and arriving there at 7 o'clock on the morning of the second day. Arrangements have been made with the Southern Pacific whereby a standard Pullman sleeper and a tourist car will be run through from Chicago and from Los Angeles. The schedule calls for reaching Kan sas City at 10:30 in the evening west bound, making a new daylight train between the two cities, upon a faster schedule than the Rock Island has hitherto attempted. As an nounced in last Friday's Herald, the equipment of the new Chicago-JM Paso train will be of the finest stan dard make and will carry a diner through between El Paso and Chi cago. It is strongly hinted that when the Rock Island secures the new equipment which the manage ment is going to order for the new limited train, that will be put in ser vice for the winter traffic, another cut of eight or nine hours will be made in the time to the coast. The schedule which is about to go into effect will bring the arrival of the train in Los Angeles at 11 a. m., on the morning of the third day, which is nearly eight hours faster than any existing service to southern Califor nia. It is still, however, five hours and forty minutes slower than the limited train service in force on the Santa Fe. The Rock Island's train, however, is not a limited train and will carry all classes of business. Arrange ments have also been made with the Mexican Central management which will land passengers in the city of Mexico in four days. This paper does not make a prac tice of blowing about the country, We have our opinions about the same and do not want to make east erners believe we have a Garden of Eden, because we have not. It is true we have a district of flowing artesian wells, and also some very productive alfalfa fields, but so far as this being a land of milk and honey, its only a pipe dream. We have a good cattle country. This western part of Kansas has been settled for about twenty years and has never been a successful farming country; that is, for a man to devote his entire time strictly to raising crops. It is true some farmers have raised considerable wheat for sever al years, while others have failed almost every year. Corn raising is unknown in these parts. Forage crops, such as cane, kafir corn etc., seldom ever fail and this is what the country, at the present time, is cal culated to raise, then have plenty of pasture for cattle. Buffalo grass is the natural crop of the country and until conditions change this will nev er be an exclusive farming country This is no place for a man out of finances to come with a family. To those who are contemplating pitch ing their tents in this unknown land, we would say, bring enough money to secure a section or two of land, a small bunch of good cattle and fix up to take care of them, then raise feed crops for the winter months In this way you will make a living, but any attempt at exclusive farm ing, is bound to terminate in failure.

The Semi-Weekly Capital, published at Topeka, is one of the best farm newspapers published anywhere. Realizing that a good market report is one of the most valuable features of a farm newspaper, the Capital prints twice a week a full report of all the markets of the world, including Topeka, and the report is absolutely reliable. It prints all the news of the civilized world fresh from the wires of the Associated Press, covering the field more thoroughly than any of the metropolitan weeklies. But in the matter of Kansas news, it has no competitor, our large corps of special correspondents en abling us to cover the field thoroughly. Ou side of your own home paper, you can get more local news from the Capital than from any other paper published. Editorially it labors unceasingly for the State's moral and material welfare. While strougly republican in politics, its editorials are fair and unprejudiced, and its news col umns are open alike to the doiegs of all po litical parties. It is printed twice a week for only $ 1 .00 per year.
