follow, as a price has been placed on Rhodes' head.
London, O 't 31 The greatet-t couaternatlou prevails In thla
oily aud especially at the war department where news of a most
disastrous character have arrived from the Transvaal.
The war office hns just issued a bulletin admitting that
the Hrltlsh forces of 15,000 soldiery at Ladysmith have been sur
rounded by the Hoers. Whole regiments of Infantry and Ueueral
Whito's Royal field artillery have been captured.
Londou streets are scenes of greatest turmoil ever witnessed
and the surprise of such stupeod ns defeat Is disheartening In Ita
ellects on the populace.
At the war office scene are no less quiet. Usually methodical
and dignified officials are exoited forced to make the confession
that such a disaster is Inexplicable. One of the prominent aec"
retary'ssaid; "We have Inst heavily In many ways, had regi
ments all but wiped nut, but to have whole regiments captured
and by Uoere is terrible."
The battle found about 16,000 English and 17,000 Boera la

Hallowe'en, All Hallow Eve, a Nut-
crack Night, are terms applied to the
night of October 31. Its observance
dates back to the time of the Druids,
withwb"mit waa the night of the
yearly harvest festival. Bonfires were
lighted on the bill tops lu honor or the
sun which bad ripened the baiveats.
Later It came to be regarded as the
time wheu supernatural Influences
wereetpeolally potent, when fairies and
elves peopled the forests and goblins
and witches stalked abroati. the
powers of darkness were believed to
hold high carnival as the midnight
hour approached, at the stroke or
twelve the "eerie tribes" fled, to visit
the earth no more until another year.
Fires were regarded as a protection
against the evil spirits. As late as the

As a higher degree of Intelligence
has prevailed, these superatlllona bave
disappeared, and today, Hallowe'en Is
regarded as simply a time for amuse

ancient and modern devices are em
ployed through which Cupid may be
prevailed upon to reveal the secrets of
the mystic future.
