ever, refused to look at the matter
in this light and carried her chil

mighty oaths when forcibly ejected
from the premises by tHe jailer and
was highly Indignant when it was
suggested that she make application
for admission into the poor house.
She did not mind staying in Jail,
but the poor house perish the
thought. The fact that able bodied

thing to do with the woman's view
of the matter.

Boers Have Signal Success.
London. Aug. 10. The Boere
seem to be having signal success in
their operations against small' Brit
ish forces, as numerous victories of
this nature have been reported dur
ing the Dost few weeks. General
Lord Kitchener telegraphs the war
office today that a British block
house near Brandford, Orange River
Colony, was rushed and captured by
the Burghers on the night of Aug. 7.
The fight was a determined one
and lasted for some time, the Brit
ish offering dogged resistance to the
assailants. General Kitchener's dis

Wine at Less Than a Cent a Gallon.
San Francisco Dispatch.
French exporters propose to enter
into active competition with the
wine makers of this State. It is as
serted that in the Perigord district
of France the crop of grapes has been
so enormous that wine has fallen to
less than one cent a gallon.
The French growers do not intend
shipping wine to this country owing
to the tariff, but they propose to
send over condensed must. This is
unfermented juice of the grape
which can be quickly converted into
fair wine by the addition of water.
The duty on must is only 20 per
cent, ad valorem.

Papers say Kitcheners Proclamation Is
Against International Law.
London, Aug. 9. A parliament
ary paper has been issued containing
the proclamation Issued by Lord
Kitchener August 7th, In accordance
with instructions from the Imperial
Government, the Governments of
Cape Colony and Natal concurring.
The proclamation says:
"All commandants, field cornets
and leaders of armed bands, beine
burghers of the late Republics and
still engaged in resisting His Ma
jesty's forces, whether In the Orange
Colony, the Transvaal or other por
tion of His Majesty's South African
dominions, and all members of the
Governments of the late Orange
Free State and Transvaal shall, un
less they surrender before Septem
ber 15th, be permanently banished
from South Afriga. The cost of the
maintenance of the families of all
burghers in the field Who have not
surrendered by September 15th
shall be recoverable from such burgh
ere and shall be a charge upon their
property, removable and immovable,
in the two colonies."
The preliminary correspondence
shows that the proclamation is based
upon suggestions which the Govern
ment of Natal forwarded to Colonial
Secretary l hamberlain, Jyr 24th,
and that the date, 8eptenfer 15th
was recommended by Lord Milner.

The Constitution Declared that all Prl-
rat s Must Have Been Killed in the
Civil War-The Decision of this Court
Suffork, Va., Aug. 8. One of the
most unique clubs in the country
was organized nere tonignt. it is
called the Society lor the Suppres
sion of Spurious Titles, and its mem
bers hope its influence will be far-
reaching. Its members and omcers
are among the most influential peo
ple in the city, including the mayor,
former veterans, and prominent
professional and business men.
Here are some extracts from the
"Believing that the indiscriminate
bestowal of titles, regardless of the
recipient's real claim to the distinc
tion suggested by the appellation, is
being carried much too far in this
and other communities, this Society
for the Suppression of Spurious
Titles is organised and established
with a view to the elimination of
such titles except in cases where the
person so addressed can prove a
bona tide rtgnt to nave Lis name
prefixed by a word suggesting distinction.
"We believe, further, that the
miscellaneous application of spurious
title s is degrading to those worthy
such honors and cheapens the value
ofsuch distinctions, which should
be bestowed only upon those whose
service, accomplishments, or attain
ments have justified fame's notice.
"Seemingly all the privates were
killed in the civil war, and there
are left few officers with a lower
rank than colonel. This society
presumes that all persons should be
addressed as plain 'mister' unless
the contrary be shown."
The constitution is much longer,
and further provides how the court
of inquiry may summon - witnesses
to appear for or against the person
whose title is questioned. The de
cision of the court is final, and must
be so recognized by posterity. The
club is causing much comment.

MAY CLOSE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Many of Those in Virginia Have Not
Legal Average Attendance.
Richmond, Va., Aug. 8. Secre
tary Brent, of the Department of
Education, is preparing a tabulated
statement of the number of free
schools in the state that , are illegal
for the reason that the attendance
upon their sessions does not come up
to the average required by law.
These facts, it is thought, will be
laid before the committee on educa
tion of the constitutional conven
tion, with some recommendation in
favor of remedying the evil.
It is understood that in one of the
valley counties out of forty-four
schools, white and colored, twenty-
four of the white and five of the
colored schools were kept open with
out making a legal average. It is
said one-third of the schools in the
state are below the average. Tnis
question was brought to the atten
tion of an educational conference
recently held in this city, and it is
understood that many of the lead
ing members favor some sweeping
reforms in the public schools.

French Physician Discovers a Cure

New York, N. Y.
Paris cable says:
" St. Vitus' dance, the most dread

Dr. Huyghe's method consists
simply in partially chloroforming

after which the members most af

no movement is possible.
At the end of six days the splints

Washington, August 8. The an
nual report of Major General Mac
Arthur, dated July 4th, 1901, the
day that he relinquished command
of thy division of the Philippines,
has been received at the War De
partment. The period covered by
the report is from October 1, 1900,
when the last report from General
MacArthur was dated. He reviews
the policy of the insurgents who
were hostile to the Americans, say
ing that their action since the prac
tical collapse of the insurrection has
been a perplexing problem. With
the disbandment of the insurgent
field armies, the Filipinos organized
desperate resistance by banding the
people together in support of the
guerrillas. This was carried out by
means of secret committees who col
lected contributions, inflicted punish
ments, and carried on a considerable
opposition to the Americans. Gen
eral MacArrhur reviewed the man
ner in which operations were car
ried on against these guerrillas, and
savs he hopes the policy will, in
time, conciliate the natives and
make them friendly to the United
The education of the people in
times past made them suspicious of
any governmental beneficence, and
they evidently looked upon the
lenient attitude of the United States
as indicating weakness. General
MacArthur says that the proclama
tion issued on December 20th firmly
declaring the intention of the United
States to hold the islands and to
have the laws obeyed, had a good
effect and the secret resistance was
A considerable portion of the re
port is devoted to the field operations
of the army, showing that on Octob
er 1, 1900, it occupied 413 stations
which was, of necessity, increased
to 502 stations, every command
being in contest with some hostile
force. He speaks of the good ser
vice of the army and says as a re
sult of the co-operation between the
people who have accepted the in
vitation to combine for mutual pro
tection, the armed insurrection is al
General MacArthur gives the fol
lowing statistics from May 6th,
1900, to June 30th, 1901, (during
which time there were 1,026 con
tacts between American troops and
insurgents), which show the casual
ties on both sides: Americans kill
ed 245, wounded 490, captured 118,
missing 20. Insurgents killed 2,
854, wounded 1,193, captured 7,672,
surrendered 23,095. During the
same period, the following material
was captured from or surrendered
by the insurgents: Rifles 15,693,
rifle ammunition 296,365 rounds
revolvers 868; bolos 3,516, cannon
ammunition 10,270 rounds.
General MacArthur gives a brief
recapitulation of the conditions in
different provinces and says that at
present the molding force in the
Philippine islands must be a well
organized army and navy. Any
thing, he says, in the immediate
future calculated to impede the
activity or reduce the efficiency of
these instruments, will not only be
a menace to the present but put in
jeopardy the entire future Ameri
can possibilities in the archipelago.
General MacArthur says the capture
of Aguinaldo may be regarded as
the most momentous single event of

Winters, the man under arrest on
suspicion of having been connected
with the gold robbery here, after
undergoing an additional severe in

the bullion had been concealed.
Accordingly Winters was taken
last evening to Crockett, in the
vicinity of the Selby Smelting and

bullion had been sunk. An hour
later five bars of refined gold had
been recovered valued at 170,000.
They were found half a mile from

British transport occurred shortly
after midnight; when there was a
terrific explosion at the binding,
where the Harrison steamer Mechan

is to carry mules to South Africa.
The explosion shook houses, rattled
dishes and awakened people for
some distance around. Most of the
crew were asleep, but the ex

their berths to the deck. An exami
nation showed a Urge dent on the

places at the water's edge had been

let into the ship.
Pumps were Immediately put to

was found that the vessel was in no
danger of sinking and that the
damage done was not serious. The
crew of the vessel denied that there
was any explosive on board and
there seems little doubt, according
to the statements of those who ex
amined the ship, that the explosion
was from the outside, and that some
