Ko Longer Any Doubt That the Boers
HIT* Entered Ktttl.
LONDON, Oct. 13.—A special from
Ladysmith says the Boers occupied
Laings Nek the moment the ultimatum
expired. They are now pouring into
Natal, and Ingogo Heights have been
LONDON, Oct. 18.—Official confirma
tion of the announcement that the
Orange Free State burghers have en
tered Natal by way of Van Reenans
pass is at hand. It leaves no further
room for doubt that acts of war have
already been committed and that the
campaign has begun.
News of an invasion on the northern
border is also accepted as reliable.
It seems improbable therefore that a
clash between the forces of Briton and
Boer can long be delayed, if indeed it
has not occurred already. The morn
ing's dispatches furnish ample details
of the situation 011 the frontier and en
able a clearer exposition of the military
status. It now seems that the Boers
intend to act in two columns, those
from the Orange Free State working
from the West, with the object of keep
ing the British forces at Ladysmith and
Dundee occupied, while parties of Boers
slip past to destroy the bridges along
the railway forming the line of com
munication between the British at Dur
ban, Natal, the advanced base at Pieter
maritzburg, and the front.
It is regarded as possible that the
Boers will attempt to occupy Estcourt
where there are only a hundred men of
the naval brigade and the news that
the Boers are raiding Zululand in the
neighborhood of E*howe is taken as a
confirmation of this possibility.
An easy road connects Enhowe and
Estcourt through Greytown and Pam
poennek and from Greytown it is also
an easy reach to Howick, to the south.
If the bridges along the Umgeni river
were destroyed this would enormously
increase the difficulty of reinforcing
However, it is still suspected that the
intire Boer concentration on the fron
tiers of Natal may be merely an elab
orate feint to draw off attention from
Mafeking, which many experts regard
as the real objective of the Boers. A
successful dash there would give the
Boers great prestige with the disaffected
Afrikanders in Cape Colony.
Colonel Baden-Powell's movement at
Mafeking is held to indicate that he is
not prepared for sharp fighting but
probably expects it at that point.
According to a dispatch from Cape
town it is asserted that the Boers have
arranged with Chief Linch-We, a prom
inent chief on the northwestern bordei
to take up arms against Great Britain.
Crossed Into Cape Colony.
LONDON, Oct. 18.—The Free Stat
burghers according to a private mes
sage just received in the city of London
have crossed the Orange river into Cap*
Colony and have occupied Philipstown.
The intention it is supposed, is to cut
the railway at De Aar Union which it
considered an important strategic point

of artillery from Kimberly has just
arrived. Th« police at the outlying
stations have been ordered to concen
trate within the town limits. No one
is allowed to leave either town without
special permission. Nearly all the
women and children have left. iVnh

Boers is increasing a^iong the British.
LONDON, Oct. IB.—A dift&ft-.V
Mafeking says that Colonel Btcftn
Powell has just sent a strung Br.tish
force from Mafeking toward the border
with field guns and ambulances, pre
eumably with a view of occupying ad
vantageous defensive high ground.,
LONDON, Oct. 13.—Dispat^Jres'/from
Durban, Natal, confirm the'report that
the Orange Free State authorities seized
the Natal train that was leaving Lady
smith for Harrismith. They also
stopped a train due to leave Harrismith
in the afternoon. All the rolling stock
has been ordered down the country out

telegraphic communication with the
Transvaal ceased punctually at 5 o'clock

FRANCISCO, Oct. 12.—The United
States transport Tartar has arrived
from Manila with the Twentieth Kan
sas regiment, under command of
Colonel Metcalf, and 3U0 discharged
soldiers from various regiments. The
Tartar was met at Angel island by Gov
ernor Stanley of Kansas and party,
who went out in a tug to meet her.
General Funston was the passenger
most eagerly sought for. Owing to the
rough condition of the sea it was impos
sible to get a very extended interview
with him. When asked of his future
intentions he replied:
"They will depend upon what the
Authorities decide upon."
He reported a pleasant trip over.
General Funston father said that ho
was in excellent health. He had little
to say about conditions in the Philip
pines beyond expressing the opinion
that the war would soon j- Mji-h-d. Ho
spoke in high terms of good work

What a brute! That is what i* said of
the man who abuses his horse, but the man
who abuses his body finds help and en
couragement on every side. His mother
makes him some
of that good old
fashioned mince f,
cuit, and his wife
follows with deli-
clous Ice cream. Presently the man has
that unpleasant feeling in the stomach
which is the beginning of a dyspeptic con
dition. His nerves become unstrung, and
he makes mother, wife and daughter mis
erable with his moodiness. His liver is
torpid. His blood is being poisoned by
the impurities which the broken-down or
gans are incapable of taking care of* He
is in just the condition to receive the verms
of any disease. He is a shining mark for
the germs of consumption. To that dis
ease too, he becomes a victim one day or
another, unless saved by the use of such
remedy as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery. This will put him on his feet
again. It is a tonic and appetizer, a blood
purifier, a liver invigorator, a nerve re
storer, a strengthener for the weak, a cure
for weak and bleeding lungs, bronchitis,
lingering cough and kindred ailments,
which if neglected or improperly treated
lead up to consumption. Perhaps yotl
think no medicine can cure so many ail
ments, but when you remember that al!
these diseases start in the stomach and nu
tritive system, and that "Golden Medical
Discovery" corrects that fault or derange
ment at the starting point, it isn't so
strange after all that it does so much.
