LONDON; June General Buller
has at length taken the offensive, and
by maneuvering: he has secured a posi
tion west of Laing'i Nek,' by which
he believe he cn make the Boer po
sitions untenable. Presumably he will
immediately follow up bis success.

nothing for three days, nor permitted
the correspondents to wire what is go

posing hi army fcr c reach after Com
mandant General Botha.
The blockading of the wires, owing
to the rush ot official correspondence,
may account for the scanty press dis
patches. Some telegrams rfiled a week
ago are only just now arriving.
London. June 8. The war office hai
received the following" dispatch : from
General Buller: '"Yellow Boom Farm,
June 8. On June 6th General Talbot,
with' the Tenth Brigade ami the South
African Light Horse seized Van Wyke

and a good deal of sniping occurred.
Our casualties were about four killed
and thirteen wounded.' t Ji

LONDON, June 8 Definite returns
regarding severe fighting between tlie
Chinese troops and ibe "Boxers," tht
was going on Thursday between Ti;n
Tsin and Peking, had not been receiv
ed at Tien Tsin when the latest teli
ram. to reach London were filed.
The. Chinese troops, however, had killed
many "Boxers," according to some re
ports, while another account had ft,
the government soldiers were sorely
defeated in. an engagement near Pio
Ting Fu.
Apparently the legation-guards hare
not taken a hand in the fighting, but
they are ready to do so at a moment's
notice. The "Boxer' movement affects
ome hundreds of square miles.
Official dispatches to Vienna frefm
Peking avow that the sect is more
powerful than any previous party in
China, embracing some 3,000,000. man
ipulated by zealous and adroit men.
London. June 9 The Peking cor
respondent of the Times, in a dispatch
dated June, 7th, says: ): ;
"Particulars, received here, sho
(hat . Messrs. Norman and Robinson,
two missionaries, were hacked j to
pieces in circumstances of revolting
barbarity. The Chinese government
cannot be exonerated from the charge
of complicity in these murders. From
the beginning its action will bear only
one interpretation, namely, that of! ap
proval of the anti-foreign movement,
whiehj ha had f these results. The
-missionary conference today sent a dis
patch to President McKinley, appeal
ing for protection, and. asserting thaf
the missionaries at Pao Ting Fujand
other places are in extreme danger;
that the Tung Chu mission station has
been abandoned; that chapels every
where have been burned, and 'that
hundreds of native Christians have been
massacred. The serious condition j ot
nftairs in Peking is reacting upon; the
provinces. The French minister jhere
has received a telegram saying thai the
French consul at Mong Taso. and the
French agent at Yun 'Han Fu, jhave
both been compelled to retire jfrom

that he was unable to guarantee Itheir

"Recently I had jan experience with
rats that I will nojt soon forget," said
D. B. Purks, of Fredericksburg, Va. ;
It happened in this way: I was
traveling through Alabama, and, land
ing in a small ton, worn out after a
day's overland travel nn a broken-down
buggy, sought the jonly tavern the town
boasted. ; And I hid been in bed about
fifteen minutes I a$ startled to trtar
strange and curious noises the most
unnatural sound had ever heard. I
immediately proceeded to investigate
the cause of this firidnigh-t disturbance
and lit the candle the only illuminant
procurable, and t my surprise beheld
ten of the largest rats, iri my opinion,
ever seen. Tley ranged in size from
an average squirrel-to an ordinary dog.
Not the. least fea was manifested by
these rats. They deliberately surveyed
roe and continuec the work of eating
my shoes. : -. " - 1 '. '-
"One large fellbw. evidently master
of ceremonies, was bold enough to at
tempt to bite mf- This affront was
more than I cduld stand. Jumping
back into bed I si
rrc.nmed for the land
lord. who. after
a drunken sleep,
this chamber of

horrors, dignified as
a room, and corf
temptuously inquired
the cause of the
racket. After stating
the nature of- th4
trouble he 'allowed'
he would settle ft in short order. In
about ten minute rats poured into the
room in oroves 19 inc nwm-oer 01 aDoui

small, lean and fat, all squeaking and
apparently frigbtfned. I thought some
thing unusual nSust have transpired,
when tny suspicions were confirmed by
the arrival of several ferrets. whoseeyes
sparkled with gle at the slaughter they
proceeded to institute.

room and madef myself as comfortable
as possible in aj chair, waiting for day
to breaks that If could shake the town.
Although I ma tie my escape in carpet

He said it happened very often, and he

As the blood contains all the elements necessary to sustain life, it is impor
tant that it be kept free of all impurities, or it becomes a source of disease,
poisoning instead of nourishing the body, and loss of health, is sure to follow.
Some poisons enter the blood from without, through the skin by absorption, or
inoculation ; others from within, as when waste products accumulate in the
system and ferment, allowing disease germs to develop and be taken into the
circulation. While all blood troubles have one common origin each has some
peculiarity to distinguish it from the other. Contagious Blood Poison, Scrofula,
Cancer, Rheumatism, Eczema and other blood diseases can be distinguished by
mtainnff. ulcer, enrotion or inflammation atrnearin eon the akin. liverv blood.
disease shows sooner or later on the outside and on the weakest part of the body, or where it finds the least resistance.
Many mistake the sore or outward sign for the real disease, and attempt a curebythe use of salves, Mnimenjts and otha
external applications. (Valuable time is lost and no permanent benefit derived from such treatment.
BLOOD TROUBLES REQUIRE BLOOD REMEDIES the poison must be completely and perma
nently eradicated the blood reinforced, purified and cleansed, or the disease goes deeper and saps the very life. ,, Mercury,
potash and arsenic, the treatment usually prescribed in this class of diseases, are violent poisons, even when taken in small
doses never cure, but do much harm by adding another poison to the already overburdened, diseased blood. '

Portland in September, 1896, and went

with stealing jewelry and pawning it
