This black inetiiuv adds a new terror to the darkness nov brooding over the ciunps and garrlsms of the two war ring white races.

This seems to have been done with a larger force than earlier reMrts Indi cated, and Deaar Junction, where the ltrltlsh base of supplies has already lu en established, Is thought by timor ous military writers to be In danger of a sudden attack.

The rear guard of tho English representa tives of the mining companies of the Hand hag straggled Into London by the last steamship arriving from Cape Town, Its leaders give fantastic and dramatic accounts of the closing scenes at Johannesburg when the mining camps were ulmndoned by the English residents. Evacuation had been In progress for weeks before the final signal for war, and then the English rear guard of court lentlal advisers and trusted em ployes of every great mining corp mt tlon were ordered to go. The richest gold fields in the world, with the cost liest mechanism for crushing and chemical treatment of the sandstone conglomerate and deep-level mining, wen- left under charge of foreign un derling and native servants. 1'altulul rtsldeiices were turned ovir to care-takers, and their occupants locked and barivd front doors and drove to the station, convinced that their furniture and art treasures would be looted before the end of the war. Strange as has been the mushroom growth of the English mining city, Its sudden desertion was a grotesque mar vel among the vicissitudes of human fortune.

He Is credited by them with a clear perception of the outcome of the war which may be the earliest results of the conillct. Presi dent Steyn Is described as a sluvwd, intelligent, ambitious man. The roar guard came away from Jo hannesburg with the conviction that President Krug"r had been dragged Into the war against his will and Judg ment, and that Steynlind Involved the Orange Frte State In a fatal struggle, In which It had everything to lose and nothing to gain, and that he had no other Incentive '.linn n divam of a pow erful Dutch republic.

The P..ier Oovernmont Could Not Issue Letters of Marque If It Di-sired. NEW YOP.K. Nov. 6.-A special to the Herald from Washington says: It Is doubted here whether th Boer government could Issue letters of mar que to privateers that would give the vessels carrying them the right to be treated otherwise than as pirates. In thu first place, the Uoors have ac cepted the suieralnty of Groat Britain by the treaty of 1SS1, the International status of the flag Is very doubtful. As suming, however, that the flag of the Transvaal would be recognized on the high seas, there are serious practical difficulties In the way of the Issuance of letters of marque by a government that has no seneoast and no ports. The vesels could not be armed and equipped In any neutral port without making the neutral government liable to heavy damages to the British govern ment under the principles laid down In the Alabama case. Tneycould not procure coal In any port In the world with. ut a violation of the principles of neutrality. If any nation should allow privateers with letters from the Trans vaal government to Issue from Its ports 'or to coal In Its ports, It would be al most equivalent to a declaration of war against Great Britain and the British government would probably so regard It. Aside from this, the general senti ment of the clvlllzntod world Is strongly against privateering. By the deelara Iton of Paris, the signatory powers agreed to the abolition of prlvatoering. The only maritime nations not Joining in this declaration were the United Staites, Spain nnd Mexico. Tho United States refused to Join because it do- sired, to secure from other nations a declaration exempting private property at sea from capture. While not pledged to. abstain from privateering, the Uni ted Slates would probably never resort to It unless In retaliation. In the recent wnr with this country, Spain Was forced by the public opinion; of Europe to abstain from Issuing let-' tors of marque.

It is claimed that one pound of tropon is equal In nutritive value to five pounds of meat or one hundred eggs, and its cost is only TO cents. The hospital pa tients liked tfce troion so well that near ly all of them preferred It to meat It Is now being used as an ingredient of various foods, as. for example, In flour, a roll containing five per cent' of the powder equalling In nutritive value five eggs or half a pound of meat. It Is needless to enlarge upon the future of tropon, If there has been no exaggera tion In the accounts of the experiments wlht It. The Inventor Is a professor at Bonn. An Ohio man by paying $75 has se cured a perpetual subscription to Har per's Magazine. This sum would pay for the magailne for only fifteen yeurs, but it is to be noticed that four per cent of It Is VI, which Is the annual subscrip tion price of the publication. The sub scription Is assignable to the subscrib er's heirs and since there can be little doubt but that the magazine will lie published for at least fifteen years longer, th-j arrangement seems to be favorable to both parties.
