SIR THOMAS lilPTON AND THE CUP HE CAME FOR. I GLOW TOtt VIBTOaY. (Continued from First Page ) Everything aboard was wef nnd drip? ping. Seldom lias there been such a smashing sea under the bows of cup contestants. The water spurted twen? ty feet into the air. The green boat labored more than the Yankee. Once or twice she burled her bowsprit In thu seas, wetting her headsnils. It wao a grand sight. COLUMBIA INCREASES LEAD. Columbia pointed almost a point higher 'than her rival and footed just as fast. Columbia had housed her working topsail before they turned the mark, but Shamrock held on until ir. ' the constantly freshening wind she de? cided that it was dangerous to carry it longer, und a sailor went aloft, to lower it. It was a delicate Job with the big !H)-fooier bucking Into the jumping sea like a broncho, but after live minutes of hard work It was successfully ac? complished. On every tack of the thresh 'to windward the Yankee in? creased her lead, sailing so close that the old salts said she could "wipe ;ho eye of the wind." A DESPERATE SITUATION. At 1:45 Columbia wrs leading by a quarter of a mile. The situation for Shamrock was desperate, and reckless of the consequences the British skipper decided to crowd on more canvas. Fearlessly he sent up and after a deal of trouble succeeded In setting :i small club topsail. NERVOUS PATRIOTS. Columbia had the race well in hand nnd did not need to risk a broken spar. She kept on under mainsail, stay nut jib. Fortunately, tlu; challenger's top mast did not curry away, though she leaned over under the press of canvasI until her slippery decks were tilted at nn angle of ;:0 degrees. Her speed was | undoubtedly increased, but her inability to point lost her almost as much as sh< gained in footing. Then she resorted | to splitting lacks, once running close in shore under the.Navcsink Highlands, slight cant In the wind favored her at this time nnd she managed to close up I *the gap until little more than half a mile separated her from Columbia. Titel pa'trlots began to feed nervous, but with the finishing lino two miles away there| Was little danger. Soon after the wind slackened n lit? tle nnd thereafter Shamrock lost rather than gained ground. All the excursion boats at this time| were bucking into the head seas for home as fast as their screws could| churn. The tugboats wore Hooded. But, as on the run down, the pace was too hot, and not half the fleet was In at the finish. A RUSH OF YACHTS. The rush <if the yachts through the seas on the final tack was magnificent Geysers spurted from the bows and drenched the sailors lying piled ' up against ihe weather rail, As the gal? lant Yankee shot across the finish be? tween Ihe lightship and committee boat" the skippers of Ihe licet that had got? ten there In time almost forgot to open Dr. Mitchell says in diffi? cult cases of Anemia, he adds cod-liver oil half an hour after each meal and he likes to use it in an emulsion; that he has watched with grow? ing surprise some listless, feeble, creature gathering flesh, color and vyholesomc ness of mind and body from this treatment. "Scott's Em ulsion'' is cod liver oil combined with hy pophosphites. It regenerates tissue, invigorates the nerves and brain, enriches the blood and -adds fat and strength. . <oc, and Iti.oo, all druggists, SCOT! & iJONVNfc, CltcmUw,,N?w York. their whistles, so absorbed were they In the stirring spectacle. But they made up for it later. The defeated challenger raced across live minutes and 17 sec? onds later. NOISY RECEPTIONS. The much touted rough weather boat had been beaten over a -thirty mile course six minutes and eighteen sec? onds actual time, or with the allow- ; anee she was to concede Columbia on account of her longer water line, six minutes and 84 seconds. Shamrock got a noisier reception than Columbia as she finished, perhaps because the later time at which she crossed gave oppor? tunity for some of the belated vessels to get up. FLAGS L'LOSSOM OUT. A grand spectacle followed. The vic? tor, after lowering her sails, set the Stars and Stripes tit her topmast truck; at both ends of her spreader and at the taff rail. Soon the whole fleet blos? somed out In American lings, the pa? triotic shippers ransacked their lockers for them anil they flew from every St lift' und mast. The Corsair, the flagship cd the New Vork Yacht Club, had six [lags flapping in the stiff breeze as she went nlongslde Columbia and gave her three shrieking blasts. Then her crew cheered und the hardy Deer Islanders aboard the Columbia responded with bared heads, All the ships in the excursion licet followed, turning loose their whis? tles in a maddening chorus, whose noti t ranged from tin: deep bass of the sound steamers to the shrill falsetto of the torpedo boats. Some of the excursion boats kept their whistles going half way to New York, GALLANT SIR TIIOMA3. Later, the Erin, which had remain? ed behind for a few minutes with Shamrock, steamed up to Columbia, the Siars and Stripes fluttering from main and mizr.cn. The Coranir greeted her with cannon, which Sir Thomas ac? knowledged by dipping the English jack at the taff rail. Then, by Sir Themas' orders, the crew of the Erin lined the rail and gave three- good Anglo-Saxon cheers for the Victor?, They were re? turned with I nit eres I by ihe proud crew of the Columbia. The American boat was the first to reach her mooring buoy inside the Hook, and when her late rival came up In tow. the sailors of both seized the opportunity to cheer each other lustily. END OF THE CUP SERIES. Later, Sir Thomas went aboard the Corsair and there, soon afterward. Mr. Iseiin, mannglng owner of ihe Colum? bia, joined him. There wore toasts to victor nnd vanquished, to America and Great Britain, to gentlemen and ladlcvj, and all sortis of things, and so, with felicltnlions all around, the cup series for ISflD ended with the best of good feeling.

Dispatches dated Mafcklng, Saturday night nnd carried by dlspatah riders, via Kurumah and Danielskuil to Hook town, state that Colonel Baden Powell inflicted ft tremendous blow on the Boers nine miles north of Mnfeking. Two trucks laden with dynamite, which It was judged unsafe to keep in Mafcklng on account of the risk of ex? plosion should the town be shelled, were sent by Colonel Baden Powell nine miles out In the hope that the Boers would shell and explode them. And so it happened. When the engine had uncoupled from the trucks nnd retreated, about a mile, the enemy shelled the trucks with the result that a terrible explosion occur? red, killing, it is estimated, 100 Boers.

Joe Le floro, a negro, who was captured by u posse, confessed that lie, in company with Other negroes, had lied Mrs. Cam? brel and her four children to tile Moor of the house, saturated the surround? ings with kerosene and burned the un? fortunate people alive. The negro, of-* ler a confession of the crime, was promptly roped to a stake and burned to a crisp, while the citizens looked on In silence.

The Gam lire 1 tragedy occurred Thurs? day morning and it was Orst Uv.'igiit thai the lire was the result of Utl acci? dent.

In Ihe neighbor? hood, and who had heretofore borne a gooil reputation, bad disappeared. Early last evening Lcflore was cap? tured several miles from the scene of the murder.
