Mafeking the Sole Topic of
Conversation in London.
RUSSIA'S LATEST DEAL WITH COREA
Ghastly Statistics of the Indian
Famine American Explorations
LONDON. May 19. Mafeking, the splen
did stand of Its heroic defenders and their
timely relief, formed the sole topic of
conversation here, the other events of the
week being entirely swept out of the mem
ory of the people of England. In fact,
they have well-nigh forgotten Lord Rob
erts and the main object of the war. o
overwhelming Is their rejoicing over the
deliverance of the garrison of the little
African village. Neither Klmberley nor
Ladysmlth appealed to their sympathies
as did Mafeking. and It will probably be
days before the country will settle down
to a sober appreciation of the struggle still
going on on the African plains, and which
still presents serious military problems.
The successful turn that affairs have
taken In South Africa. Is most fortunate
for Lord Salisbury, as his weakest point,
his foreign administration, had threat

The news that Russia had secured a coal
d-epot In Corea. as announced May 18 In a
dispatch to the Times from Peking, has
raised" a storm of Indignation, and many
of the conservative organs have declared
that It Is merely another unfortunate In
stance of the Premier's Incapability to
protect British interests in the far East.
Among those who study Chinese questions,
the belief obtains that Russia's latest
move Is a direct breach of contract with,
and a blow against. Great Britain and
Japan, which brings these nations face
to face with a grave crisis, which pusil
lanimous disloyalty will neither amend
According to the latest story .going
the rounds, "Bobs" fights on "Bath
Olivers." These are not a new
fangled form of compressed ration, but a
simple-looking "biscuit made at Bath, the
first recipe for which Is credited to the
celebrated Ir. Oliver, a friend of the
Pope and other ISth century notabilities.
"Bobs" apparently took out a large sup
ply of these, and since has sent for more,
which were taken by Lady Roberts.
Regarding General Bugler and his cup
plies, there is also an Interesting anec
dote current. Buller, It appears, tele
graphed from Natal to some wine mer
chants to send out 50 cases of champagne,
marked "castor oil." About the time the
wine was due, Buller wired to the offi
cer in charge of the base notifying him
that he expected 50 cases of castor oil,
which he wished dispatched without de
lay. The officer at the base replied, re
gretting the cases had not arrived, but
saying he had procured all the available
castor oil, 20 cases, which he had forward
ed in the hope It would suffice for the
present. General Buller's remarks are not

among the audience at the opening
night of Grau's opera. Yet the most
brilliant night of the week, so far
as costumes and enthusiasm are con
cerned, was the one which was made nota
ble by Mme. Calve's first appearance this
season as Carmen, Friday, May 18, though
many of the royalties were detained at
Windsor by the christening of the son ol
the Duke and Duchess of York. The
Duke and Duchess of Fife, Earl and
Countess Cadogan, Mr. and Mrs. Bradley
Martin, Lady Randolph Churchill. J. P.
Morgan and many other prominent Amer
icans were present.
The presence of the Princess of "Wales
at a performance of "Quo Vadis" this
week seems to have the effect of turning
the tide of fortune towards that produc
tion, in spite of the press attacks. The
Princess' presence seems to have demon
strated that the play contains nothing to
offend the Christian conscience and the
box office at last shows a balance on the
profit side of the ledger.

if it is found that in the country to the
north, between the lake and the Nile,
there Is difficulty in obtaining supplies.
This Is regarded as probable, as the
country has not been explored, and Is
reported to he contjnualjy raided.
The expedition had, according to the last
news received, 04 camels, but there was
an insufficient amount of food, which may
necessitate only a portion of the party

to the coast.
While parts of the United States have
been sweltering. England and most of
Europe returned to Winter furs and the
heaviest overcoats this week. Northeast
winds, amounting to a gale In many
places, have devastated the fruit blos

of the orchards are decidedly unfavor

stimulated this week by the excellent re

One of the curious features of the last
few days Is the persistency with which
the Express has kept up a campaign
against Richard Croker. of New York.
Unlike the Duke of Orleans. Mr. Croker

England nor writing self-excusing letters
A correspondent wired him. asking him If
he had anything to say in reply to the

The Barrymore peerage will be revived
in favor of the Right Hon. Arthur Hugh
Smith Barn', chairman of the National
Union of Conservative Associations. It
became extinct in 1S24 with the death of
tho ICth Earl Barrymore. who was one of
the largest of the large landowners In
Ireland. Mr. Smith Barry maintains that
he is the rightful Baron Barrymore. It
is one of the ancient Irish peerages, and
was In existence long before it was for
mally recognized by Henry VIII. The
Right Hon. Arthur Hugh Smith Barry,
who was born In 1WS. was first married

The Highland people are wondering
hugely at the amount of steel Mr. An
drew Carnegie Is using In the erection
of his addition to Skibo Castle- These
"sleepy-hollowers" have never before seen
a building so done. All comes from Pitts
burg. Skibo is now locally dubbed "Iron
Castle." It Is said that a mason mistook
the millionaire for some poor visitor and
patronized him. On learning his identity,
he excused himself, saying he "ought to
wear better clothes, so that people may
be able to tell who you are." The Tailor,
a newspaper, evidently agrees with the
mason, for In a criticism of the clothes
represented at this year's Academy it
declares that the lapels of (Mr. Carnegie's
coat were clumsy, the edges very wot
bly, and had been forced through a ma
chine of the worst character.
Scotland Is fast losing Its reputation for
piety. Last year's statistics. Just issued,
show the prisons were full to overflowing,
and that the officials were at their wits'

Increase of over GOO, chiefly due to hus
bands attacking their wives and Inde
cent assaults, which the commissioners
declare spring fom intemperance.

the Indian famine. What, for Instance,
could better tell the tale of sorrow than
the report of the resident at Kherwera, in
Rajpootana? With careful regard for
the regulation governing communications,
he abruptly commences:

hardly any; cattle, all dead; fodder, none;

regret that he Is obliged to record 3G67

guarding the cars, with shotguns loaded
with buckshot, and they will be instruct

terfere with the running of cars or with
the crews In the discharge of their du

THE PROMISE OF SPRING AND SUMMER
There is no impropriety in calling
attention to the fact that the Spring and
Summer months afford the best time for
the treatment of Catarrh.
This has been frequently done by physi
cians who assume to treat this disease,
perhaps to Increoso their practice during
the Spring and Summer. Yet, from what
ever motive, their teaching on this point
at least has been true enough.
Spring and Summer do afford the best
time to cure Catarrhal conditions.
The Greatest Results Yet to Be
And It Is moreover appropriate at Just
this time of tho year, while the Interest
of the community over this marvelous
treatment which Doctor Copeland has
given to the world Is at its height; while
the testimony Is pouring In and filling the
newspaper columns regarding the cures
which this treatment is accomplishing,
that It should be mado very clear that the
marvelous measure of his success has by
no means been reached: that it is during
the next few months, during the favora
ble influence of the Spring and Summer
season, that the most splendid and uni
form results will be made apparent.

Sir. George Sana, Jr., Tualatin, Or.,
engaged In the lumber and sawmill busi
ness and well known: I suffered with
Catarrh since childhood. My nose was
always, stopped up, first one side, then
the other. At times I could not breathe
through my nose at all, but was compelled
to breathe through my mouth, especially
at night. I had dull headache. There
was a discharge from the nose and drop
ping into the throat, causing me to cough

and keeping the throat irritated and in
flamed. My hearing was also greatly im
paired. My whole system seemed to be under
mined toy the poisons of Catarrh. I had
pain and soreness In tho chest and under
the shoulder-blades, and my breathing was
short and difficult. My stomach wa3
weak, and food was not properly digested.
My sleep was unrefreshing, and I got up In
the morning ao tired as when I went to
After doctoring for years, I was finally
persuaded by a friend to take up a course
of treatment at the Copeland Institute.
My Improvement was very slow, and It
often seemed I would not get well, but
now I am In better health than ever be
fore. I have no aches or pain. My breath
ing is clear, and my hearing Is perfect.
Mr. Al Thornton, Vancouver,
Wash.: For 20 years I suffered with my
head and stomach. I was bloated with
gas, had soreness and pain In the stom
ach and heart palpitation. I was weak
and unfit for work. The Copeland phy
sicians cured me thoroughly and perma
nently. Mr. Lecester Snipes, The Dalle,
Or.: Mine was a complicated case and of
long standing. One doctor said I had
Asthma; another that I had Consumption
and could not get well. I had a bad
cough, pains in the chest and through the
left lung. The air passages seemed con
tracted and closed. I wao famishing for
breath half the night, unable to sleep or

cured me after everything else had failed.

WASHINGTON, May 19. A new prog

shows not only the system as it existed
on March 31. but also projected military
telegraph lines and cables now in process
Telegraphic communication between Ma
nila and the south has been entirely de
pendent upon the English cable to the
Visayan Islands of Panay, Negros and
Cebu. This cable, which was broken by
an earthquake on April 14. has not yet
been repaired, and the long interruption
emphasizes the great military importance
of the alternate telegraph route to the
southern Islands from Manila, which Is
now being constructed by the Signal
Corps. It is expected that the entire Vis

From now on these wonderful tests will
be made even under more favorable 'in
fluences, and all sufferers from Catarrhal
or Bronchial difficulties, from diseases of

or Lungs should recognize this and avail
themselves of the knowledge.
In the Spring and Summer, Nature lends
her aid to the work of the physician, the
causes that produce Catarrhal conditions
are less active, liability to cold is reduced.
One month of Spring or Summer treat-'
ment is worth two months of tho moat
careful Winter treatment, and if all who
suffer from Catarrh were wise enough to
devote a little of the Summer to treat
ment, there would soon be few case3 ot
Catarrh to treat; cases ot Deafness would
become rare, head noises a curiosity and
chronic coughs and Consumption would:
be reduced to a minimum.
