London. Oct. . Nothing important
has developed as to the Transvaal si;
nation. The J wily Telegraph's dis
patch of yesterday morning announc
ing that the Uocrs had invaded Natal
and seized Laing's Nek now seems to
be without foundation. The jjoveru
ii em has received nothing to justify
the rirt. although such a move on
the part of the Itoer would naturally
cause little surprise.
The Hritish position in Natal was
considerably strengthened by the ar
rival yesterday of Indian transMirts
with reinforcements of about .oi.i in
fantry, i.-ivalry and arliih-ry. all of
which will be promptly sent to the
front by train and with I heir arrival

Saturday the British advanced camps

practically safe -guarded against the
risk id' a successful dasli across the

TEACHING DOGS TRiCKS.
One That Uottlil He Amiislnt if Tried
I pon otirself.
Although it is l y t:o means an un
coi'inion thing to ? ilogs throw som
erset after somerset in stage perform
ances, it is a somewhat remarkable
fact that few people know how such
animals can be taught sin-h a ditlictilt
Ask a friend how he thinks a dog can
be initiated into tic mysteries of som
erset throwing, and you will receive
some very curious suggest ions.
As there is more "hati one way of
cookin;; a goose, so there is more than
oiie method of teaching a dog to throw
somersets. Put the most practical and
thorough manner is to fasten a cord
around the body of the animal, close to
the fore legs, and two people should
hold the ends of the cord on either side
ol" the unfortunate dog. A third party,
armed wilh a stout rope, takes a posi
tion immediately ii) front of the canine
acrobat and. with a measured and
masterly stroke. Hogs the tloor at close
ipiarters to the dog's nose.
At each stroke of the rope the dog
springs backward, and that movement
i.i the trainer's golden opportunity. As
the dog springs backward the rope
passing under its body is jerked up
ward, and. although the lirst few at
tempts may prove futile, the somerset
is acquired iti course of time. An intel
ligent dog soon sickens of this order of
things and throws somersets without
the assistance of rop"s.
I'or the sake of your dog in particu
lar and your patience and future wel
fare in general, we do not commend
you to teaching your dog to turn som
ersets. If. however, you ill ink there
is no harm iu it, just get u few friends
to put you through the exercise and
see how you like it. It will prove im
mensely amusing- for your friends.
A boil is due to the action of a mi
crobe called a pus cocc us. This is al
most alxvays present iu the skin, but
docs n harm while the system can
combat the necessary conditions of its
growth and multiplication.
Sufferers from boils are usually in
iwior health. They are pale, pasty
looking, emaciated, with a poor appe
tite and bad digestion. People say
their blood is too thin. Others, how
ever, may be iu apparently perfect
health, yet hardly is one boil over be
fore another conns. if those ix.-rsons
it is said that their blood is too rich.
ISoth these popular terms are nearly
expressive of the true condition. In
the first case the tissues are not well
nourished and so cannot resist the mi
crobe. In the second ca.se the tissues
i.re nourished, but are poisoned by e.v
csis of waste material in th blood,
caused by the taking of more food th.m
the Ixm'.v c:im prop?riy dispose of.

The Old Way,
When a man wanted a really fine suit or an

irreproachable in style, quality and fit. He
was pretty sure of satisfaction, but it came
