The MAJESTIC GAS LAMP at $4 with a tin of CARBIDE thrown In.
This lamp is the very best that Is made, and It is not offered at a ridicu
lously high price; burns plain rock carbide, is light in weight, and, after
having sold 100 lamps, satisfaction in every case has followed. No danger.
Makes an excellent buggy lamp.

At latest advices the gallant little
force of Baden-Powell at Mafeking was
still holding out. but unless relief Is
sent soon the Boers are almost certain
to take the place, as they have strong
forces both north and south of the
town, and last night's dispatches said
they were bringing up their artillery
preparatory to a general altark.
On the Natal side little has been
done. Tin Boers are slowly advancing
