THE FUNERAL OF DIEUT. T. M.
(By Telegraph to Vlrglnian-Pllot.)
Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 20.?The remains
of Lieut. T. M. Brumby, Admiral
Dewey's flag officer, were laid to rest
to-day In the soil of his native State.
The funeral was under the direction
of 'the mllRary, and the sorvlce of the
Episcopal Church was , conducted by
Bishop C. K. Nelson.
The body of the dead ofllcer reached
Atlanta early this morning, and was
Immediately escorted to the Caoltol,
where It lay In state several hours.
Lieutenant Caldwell, the representa?
tive of Admiral Dewey, placing the
magnificent sword, presented Brumby
by the people of Georgia less than
months ago, on the casket. Among the
mass of flowers about the coflln was a
great wreath of white roses, Japonlcas

ferns and bearing a card with the sim?

NO DANGEROUS INGREDIENTS.
The Most Perfect Skin and Toilet
Soap Ever Manufactured.
HARMLESS, FRAGRANT, STIMULATING.
That a Soap could be manufactured
without tho use of fats and oils combined
with an alkali has been a great surprise
to chemists. The base of aill soaps from
the cheapest laundry to tho finest tolloi
having always been made In this way.
However, their surprise was not so great
as tho pleasure of the medical profession
when it was'found that a perfect soap
could be made from tho fresh green leaves
of the Tasmanian, Blue Gum Tree; these
leaves furnishing a product, wh'ch, al?
though three times stronger than carbolic
add as a germicide, is perfectly harmless.
For years these leaves havo been the only
euro known to tho natives of Tasmania
for skin diseases, wounds, etc., and arc
to-dny used In the1 principal skin disease
hospitals of Europe, to tho exclusion of
all other remedies. Now that It Is possi?
ble to Incorporate them In a toilet soap
and yet retain all thedr medla'nal quali?
ties, skin diseases can bo treated more
successfully than bofore, application of
tho mcdicant being made In this way
without the use of ointment which nat?

JACKSON'S LAST DISPATCH TO
(By Telegraph to Vlrginian-Pllot.)
?Brrrtrmorc, Deo. 2k?Mr, A. E. Morrl
son, of Leesburg, Va., has left at the
Mercantile Trust Company for safe?
keeping the last dispatch written by
General Stonewall Jackson. Tho dis?
patch was directed to General Lee and
was written at 3 o'clock on the after?
noon of May 2, 18C3. General Jackson
was 'killed about 7 o'clock the same
day. The dispatch was Intrusted to Mr.
Morrison for delivery, but never reach?
ed its destination, as the bearer was
wounded In his efforts to get through
the lines and was unable to proceed or
to turn the dispatch over to another
courier. Mr. Morrison has since kept
the paper, which he prizes highly as
being, perhaps, the last action of the
famous Confederate general.
The dispatch read as follows:
? Near Six Miles West )

stand at Chancellors,. which Is about
two miles from Chancellorsville. ,1 hope

AN UN/CONFIRMED RUMOR.
London, Dec. 20.?A special dispatch
from Durbart, Natal, dated Saturday,
December 16, says' it ie rumored that
General Builer called for volunteers to
recover the abandoned guns, and that
a party Issued from the camp after
midnight and brought in the guns,
which were uninjured.
GUNS NOT RECOVERED.
London, Dele. 20.?It still seems doubt?
ful whether the guns that General Bul?
let* abandoned at Colenzo are in the
possession of the Boers.
According to a dispatch to the Asso?
ciated Presa from Durban, sent off on
the evening of the battle, and which I
has just been received here, the guns
remained where they were left by the
British troops, and were covered by the I
heavy guns of General Hlldyard's brl- j
gade, occupying an intrenched position.
The dispatch adds that the Boers have
thus far not attempted to cross the
I river and carry off the guns! while ad?
vices to the Associated Prees from Pre?
toria, under the same date, say that an
official Boer dispatch reports that two
guns, 13 wagons and a quantity of am?

London, Dec. 20.?General Lord Rob?
erts, who Is to have full command of
the British troops in South Africa, ac?
companied by Lady Roberts and their
two daughters, arrived in London this
morning, having traveled from Dublin
with Mr. Chamberlain. Their de?
parture from Dublin was marked by
cheering crowds, but the General made
a quiet entry Into London. After go?
ing to a private hotel, he spent about
an hour at the War Office In consulta?
tion with the Marquis of Lansdowne,
the Secretary of State for War. Then
General Roberts returned to the task
of packing his.effects and interviewing
the officers selected for his staff.
A PARTING MESSAGE.
When "Little Bob's," the beloved of
Tommy Atkins, received a representa?
tive of the Associated Press, he was
dressed in the deepest black in vivid
contrast with his snow white hair and
moustache. His dapper little figure
was as straight as ever, but the eyes
that have so often scanned British
victory were slightly dimmed by the
great personal sorrow that has be?
fallen him. But in spite of this and
the multitude of details that claimed
his attention. General Roberts will?
ingly assented to send through the
Associated P^ess .a parting message to
the American people, and gave the
"Circumstances naturally forbid my
speaking about the campaign ahead of
me, except to say that I have entire
confidence in the British so'dier, and
that I believe the traditions of our
armv will be unheld in South Africa.
"For the friendly Interest and sym?
pathy exhibited by many Americans I
am most deeply grateful. I feel sure

say that . no unnecessary -harshness

HIS REMAINS BROUGHT TO MA?
NILA FOR BURIAL.
(By Telegraph to Vlrglnlan-Pllot.)
Manila, Dec. 20.?S p. m.?Major Gen?
eral Dawton's body wns brought from
Sau Matco to Manila this afternoon, h s
staff and a squadron of cavalry acting
as escort. It was found necessary to
bridge the river.
The funeral will take place from his
late residence here, a mansion former?
ly occupLd by a Span'.sh g nrral. The
body has b en placed temporarily In a
vault In Elpaco cemetery, where many
of the Anurcan soldiers have been in?
terred, and a. guard of honor will be
maintained. When Mrs. Lnwton and
her four children shall have completed
their -arrangements for returning to the
United States, the remains will be
taken on a transport with an escort of
olllccrs, for final interment, as is
thought probable here, In Arlington
General Lnwton's death has caused
universal sorrow in Manila. No Ameri?
can ? ofllcer had greater popularity
among all ranks, and In his dealings
with the natives he commanded their
respect to a remarkable degree. The
Mayors whom he Installed in the neigh?
boring towns are arranging to attend
the funeral In u body.
To his executive ability and personal
leadership is chiefly due the brilliant
execution of the plan of campaign in
North Luzon, which has scattered the
Insurufctionnry force from San Isldro
to the Gulf of Llngayen. That section
of the island, which had to be travers?
ed during the very worst season of the
I year, presented difficulties considered
by nil acquainted with It to be almost
insurmountable, but General Lawton
thoroughly covered the program as
I Signed him.
"When he reached Tayug and found
that the other division had not arrived,
he went through to Dagupan on his
own responsibility. Although he Im?
posed great hardships on his men. he
Invariably shared their lot cheerfully.
Thirteen Americans, including three
officers, were wounded in the engage?
ment at Sa.n Mateo. where General
Lnwton was killed. Captain Breckcn
ridge's wound Is not considered dan?
gerous, although the bullet penetrated
Iiis arm and side.
It Is estimated that the Insurgents
numbered 500 and 'that half of them,
were armed with rifles. The Amer?
icans numbered 1,300. but the command
had been .much depleted by sickness.
The wagon train found the roads Im?
passable and was obliged to return.
The Insurgents retreated to the
northeast, leaving six dead.
I They have other forces near Taytay.
This region, although close to Manila.

which to dislodge the enemy. It Is

"Executive Mansion, Dec. 20th.
'?Major Generai Otis, Manila:
"I have learned with inexpressible
sorrow of the death of Major General
Lawton, and ask to share with the

In their grief. One of the most gallant
officers of the army has fallen. At
the time the sad news came to us his
nomination as brigadier general of the

transmission to the Senate, but no
rank can enhance his fame. He rose
from the ranks of the Ninth Indiana
Volunteer Infantry, lining every grade
in the service to that of major general
of volunteers, anil in three wars was
conspicuous for bravery and devotion
to duty. The country mourns the
death of this Intrepid leader. Convey
to Mrs. Lnwton my heartfelt sympathy
in her overshadowing affliction.
Secretary Root cabled as follows:

Eighth Army Corps In drepest regret
over the death of their h r ic comrade.
