WilEKU THE WAi: WILL BE
Our attention has been called !
to the fact that some of our
readers, up-to-dut in history and
even ahead of dale as pioneers
of progress, have found their
ideas covered about as thickly
with the dust of oblivion as the
lids o. their geographical maps,
and are trying to shake off the
mistv hae and locate the Beers.
Well, most of these even remem-

tremity they found Cape Colony;

Sulu Land; Orange Free

Republic. This latter is the
h-i:id of the Boers, and can be
very easily traced on any ordi-
nary map ol Africa. The little
iviev-s mentioned have been .
absorbed by tin? English nation
except Orange Fro? States ruid'
the 'i iausvaal.

have left one territory after an

yet, according to the English

practically rescued from disin

spirit shown is that the Ameri-1
i - -i p i . . i i . . . i
can people declare 101 noiaiug i
oveiy possession which has come
under the American arms, by
iorCft or treaty.
It is American and Anglo-Saxon
to expand, to bioadon out,
to acquire, be it territory, edu
cation, religion or commerce.
If it were not for this spirit of
expansion how slow the world
would be today, and how would
the great reforms have been ac
complished, civilization advanced
and Christianity carried to t he
uttermost parts of tho earth, if
the spirit of Anglo-Saxon ism
had not been one crying out and
reaching out . for ; new peoples
and new lands to subdue, phy
sically, morally and commer
cially? In the early days of this great
American Republic, this spirit of
expansion was aroused, and the
srreat territory, within tho home
bounds was the result.
The civil war caused a halt,
but when the declaration of war
against Spain was heard, there
w a s one people in spirit, united
and determined for the success
of the arms of the Republic.
The successful conclusion of
the Avar, the new duties involved
in its success, has aroused the
expansion spirit of the nation,

The American Republic is in

lhu uplifting of humanity , and
no better exhibit that it is in lu

reading the s1ory of Dewey's
homo coming. New Bern Jour
nal. War r Vi iu ihaUy a Reality.
The situation in South Africa
is that of war in all the essentials,
but those of actual carnage which
will follow quickly unless studi
ously avoided for more time to
get ready. The reply to the Boer
ultimatum was to tho effect that
Great Britian could not even
discuss the terms. The English
diplomat has taken his passports
and bidden adieu to the Trair
vaal. That government has ad
vanced its troops into Natal.
The British also are moving to
the front. Seizures of trains,
etc., mark also the beginning of
hostile acts. There will proba
bly bo efforts at up-rising in Na
tal and Cape Colony according to
indications now7, and all the in
dications pointto a tierce contest.

A MOTHER TELLS HOW SHE
SAVED DAUGHTERS LIFE.
I am the mother of eight child
ren nnd have had a creat deal of
experience with medicines. Last
summer my little daughter had
tho dysentery in its worst form.
We thought sh would die. I
tried everything I could think of.
I saw by an advertisement in our
paper that Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
was highly recooa mended and
sent and gbt a bottle at once. Il
proved to be one of the very best
medicines we ever had in the
house. It saved my little daught
er's life. I am anxious for every
mother to know what an excellent
medicine it is. Had I known it at
nrst it wouiJ have saved me a
great deal of anxietv and my
httie daughter much suffering. -Ycurs
