A Mutter of Uiiccrtnlntr
Again the statement that a large
Boer force wall massing northward of
Kimberley once more raises in the
minds of some experts the question
whether Gen Cronje is really with the
uVforce retreating on IMoemfontein It
Is suggested that the latter is really
the Free State main army under Gen
Prinsloo supplemented by a por
Hon of the Mugersfontein command
while tin main body of the latter

better quarters for themselves

small entertainment hall that has
been used for public meetings

for the probable new building
the idea naturally presents itself
of combining an attractive and
roomy auditorium with complete
quarters and Lodge room for the
fraternal orders It will contain
a spacious banquet hall and drill
room This will be the kind of
building if the idea is carried
out as seems now most probable
E W Turner Lodo has grown
much in membership in the past
years and needs larger and better
quarters The size and probable
cost of the bulling is not de

An Interesting Letter
Extracts from an interesting let
ter received by Elder I H Tool from
Henry Jones who is now in tho
Phllliplno Islands are as follows
SAMPALOO r I Jan 1000
liMY DEAR MR 1EELI am glad
to say that I am in excellent health
and am heavier now than over You
say you would like to bo over hero
You would like it during the dry
season but the rainy rainy season Is
awful I havo had a touch of both
III hardly think that it will bo noc
essary for the Government to have
such a largo army over hero as tho
fight Is about over and Ina few
weeks at most every thing will have
been settled Wo havo had two
fights Our batalllon was In tho
fight In which Gen Law ton was
killed but was In tho reserve Part
of our battalion was in a fight a
few days ago and made quite a nice
show but I shall not wrlto you
anything about that as there aro
too many letters going home now
with all sorts of stories in regard
to what tho boys have done but
prefer to have someone else tell It
or wait until I roturn and brag
III must say wo are being treated
much bettor than I expected and
aro now quartered in one of tho
worst sections of Manila It Is tho
District of Sampaloo about one
mile from tho Availed city and tho
Escolta which is in the center of
tho now city and is called the hot
bed of Insurrection
There aro very few sick I think
my morning report book shows only
five men sick and they havo only
local trouble Avery nice pom cent
out of 100 men And say I believe
I am the hardest worked man in tho
Regiment having to look out for 100
men and answer foolish questions
and everything Is Tho 1st Sergeant
will toll you The discipline and
personnel of a company depend
largely on tho 1st Sergeant
Enclosed you will find a piece of
money that was given mo In change
by a native woman today who was
selling cigars It Is worth In our
money onohalf cent Sometimes I
like yourself doubt as to whether
wo aro making a mistake by making
war on these people but thon to set Ii
them and watch their treacherous
ways dispels that thought They
cannot be trusted to do anything
and it was only a few days ago that
a hugbe oonsplraoywas unearthed InCIof
the heart of the city of Manila
More troops aro coming every day
One negro regiment came in today
II I wont down in tho city the other
day to see tho remains of Gen Law
ton carried on board the Transport
Thomas and the city was so
crowded that I could scarcely pass
through Such menus Lawtonaroj
worth the whole Island We aret I
now under command of Gen
Wheeler lot Brigade 1st Division

11 want to praise the good work
that the Y M C A W 0 T U
and Rod Cross aro doing horo They
not only furnish tho boys with
papor and envelopes but also plonty
of books to read I hope that you
may continue to gain recruits for
tho army of tho Lord and while I
may and dont prnctlco It I still bo
Hero in our creed But tho army Is
very demoralizing indeed and If a
man has any tendency towards re
ligion six months In tho service
casts It aside I know that you poo
