When cur boy was about lf mouths old he broke out with a rash which was thought to be measles. In a few days he had a swelling on the left side of his neck and it was decided to be mumps. He was given medical attendance for about three weeks when the doctor said it was scrofula and ordered a salve. He wanted to lance the sore, but I would not let him and continued giving him medicine for about four months when the bunch broke iu two places and became a running sore. Three doctors said it was scrofula and each ordered a blood medicine. A neighbor told me of a case somewhat like our baby's which was cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla. I decided to etvp it to my boy and in a short wbi Iv his health improved and his neck healed so nicely that I stopped giving him the medicine. The sore broke out again, how^T, whereupon I again gave him Hood's Sarsaparilla and its persistent nse has accomplished a complete cure. I do not think there will be even a scar left. I cannot speak too highly of Hood's Sarsaparilla and I rec- ommendit everywhere I get a chance." MRS. NETTIE CHASE, 47 K St., N. 7- Like Magic. _ "A complication of troubles, dyspepsia, chronic catarrh and inflammation of the stomach, rheumatism, etc., made me miserable. Had no appetite until I took Hood's Sarsapa- ' rilla, which acted like magic. I am I thoroughly cured." N. B. SEELET, \ 1874 West 14th Are., Denver, Col. !

Rl««r^ «nd the Britivh i'emmandrr la Sow Wltblm fitly. oar- Mitt» uf ·ad S-Tcnir-cc% CB ot London, May *S --When Lord liob- erts wrote hss flrst dis^itch 01 TraM- \aal terniory yesterday, shortly before 2 o'eliH-k m tbe afternoon, he was 51 miirt from Johannesburg and 77 from Pretoria. His Immesely superior forces had passed the Vaal river, their last great natural obttacle. at three The Vaal fornus a curve of SO miles from Pdrys on the west to Zand Drift is toward the Free Suite. Thus Lord Roberts, advancing along the railway. was f u a position to strike any part of the crescent by shorter lines than those by which the Boers could reinforce the threatened points. The Boers reUeated almost without a show of defense. Gen. French and Gen. Hamilton apparently did not fire a shot. Of Lord Roberts' immediate force 11 men. belon?ine to the Eisrhth mounted Infantry, *-ere the flrst to ford the river. They came upon a Boer patrol looting at Viljoea's Drift, and a skirmish lasting ten minutes followed. TV, o hundred Boers tried feebly to hold the Vereeniging colliery, but they were dislodged. The Boer rear guard is at Moytrton, ten miles south ot Vereeniging. Their main body is moving toward the Klip River hills, that cover the south slue of Johannesburg. While Lord Roberts' 30,000 infantry, 2v,uw norse and 150 guns are moving on Johannesburg and Pretoria, through a parched and deserted country, -the situation at the Tranvaal capital, as it was last Friday, is thus described by an observer, who sent his message by private hand to Lourenzo Msrques yesterday: "The situation, both from a military and a political point of view, has become very critical. President Kruger yesterday admitted for tbe first time that matters are very grave. The Boer determination is to trust everything to a last stand on the Gats Rand mountains, to the north of Potchef- stroom, where 3.000 kaffirs are digging trenches. To that point every available man and gun have Seen sent. "The whole of the western border of the Transvaal, from end to end, is defenseless, and Gen. "Baden-Powell ·· -- · narch in when he likes. Lord Roberts, on the other hand, will en- coiu'-.c-r the greatest resistance. The Beer endeavor is to lure the British iatd appearing to threaten Johannesburg with attack, an excuse thus being given them for the destruction of property. The Transvaal government will nof dare destroy the mines or property without an excuse. Much dynamite has been sent down the line^ and 160,000 cases lie ready at Zuurfontein, neap Johannesburg. "General Louis Botha and General Lucas Meyer have pleaded for the preservation of property. Both are large landed proprietors, and fear confiscation, but they have not received satisfactory replies from President Kruger. "Meanwhile many French, and German adventurers have come forward with schemes and Inventions for Wowing np the British troops. Some of these have received a tacit pemission to experiment. One German invention Is for use on a railway, where it lies perfectly concealed until the weight of a passing train explodes tbe charge. "General Lucas Meyer says surrender would be at once proposed by the Boers, but that everybody fears the ig- nomy of being the one to make the proposal. He declares that he is assured that his men will not stand. President Steyn and Mr. Reitz, the Transvaal state secretary, are strongly opposed to peace, but Mr. Kruger is not so tntictt opposed to it." President Kruger's proclamation to the burghers asking their votes for or against continuing the war Is understood to say that they can quit now, with the prospect of retaining their farms, or continue to the bitter end. Rumors are current in Lord Roberta' army that the Boers intend to surrender Several correspondents wire the London papers that there are 15.000 foreigners in the Boer ranks, bnt this is hardly credible. The indications are that a pitched battle is imminent at Lalng's Nek, where Gen. Buller faces the Boers, reinforced and seemingly determined, with an estimated strength of from 8,000 to 10,000 men. The reinforcements include a large party from Lady- brand and fresh commandoes from Pretoria. Gen. Boiler's officers are doubtful of the ability of the Boers to display the same tenacity as in the ngfeting at Ladysmitb. The British are confident that when the moment arrives they will be able to force the passes. Two boxes of dynamite fuse have been found under the Newcastle city hail Gen. Bnller Is causing numerous arrests of suspected rebels. Forty-two hgrc-e b»n sent to Pietermaritzburg. 5£r. Ga^borpa, a f hernisi. and his wife hare been arrested in the charge of high treason. With the exception of a faw shots eicnassKl -s-ith tie retiring Boers at Vereeainging, tae only fighting during tbe last two days with all the great armies in the field appears to have been two small engagements in the eastern part of the Free State. At Fictsuurg on Saturday the Boers attacked the British occnpying the town, [but they were forced to retire toward 'Slabberts Nek. Nothing is known regarding casualties. The same day Gen. Brabant's scouta located 200 Boers entrenched near Cio- colan. The scouts advanced within 200 yards, when the Boers fired heavily. The scouts retired, and four are miss- Ing. Gen.

Then the pair, hearing footsteps, vaulted a fence and escaped. INVINCIBLES BARRED OUT. r*iiutruZx Z^ur^. aluru«T«frN Cttuuut Land In th« I'ultrd State*. New York. May 2S.--James Fitzharris, alias "Skin the Goat," and Joseph Mullett, the Irish invincibles, who were recently released from prison In Ireland, where they were sentenced for complicity in the Phoenix Park murders in 1SS2, vert yesterday ordered excluded by the board of special inquiry at the Immigration station and ordered deported.- The exclusion was made under the Interpretation of the law which forbids any on? being admitted to this country who has been adjudged guilty of a "felony, crime. Infamous crime, or misdemeanor involving -moral turpitude." The two men were recently pardoned by Earl Cadogan, lord lieutenant of Ireland? from a sentence of life imprisonment, and reached this city among the steerage passengers on tbe Lucania on Saturday tost. After a conference -with Commissioner Fritchie the men were ordered back to Ellis Island to await the action of the board of special inquiry. "WTiile-telling his story to the board Fitzharris declared that at the time of his trial he was offered £10.000 by the English government if he would turn informer against the other members of the band. This be refused to do. The case will probably be appealed to the authorities at Washington, and If not the men will elave this port on Saturday next on the Lucania. Krnmer'n Speedy Five MUCH.

Louisville, May 28.--The tenth annual reunion of the United Confederate Veterans -will begin in this city Wednesday. It is expected, considered numerically, that the tenth annual reunion -will surpass any of the re- ·nnions previously b,eld, and a. conservative estimate is that 150,000 visitors ·win HA in Louisville during the week. Every arrangement has been made for entertaining such a crowd. Tbe city is handsomely draped in bunting, tbe red and white of the Confederacy being most prominent, -while the portraits of Confederate generals are suspended from many buildings. Anarchy. Shanghai. May 28.--Reports received today indicate that affairs around Pekin are extremely critical, owing to the defeat of the government troops by the "Boxers." It is now regarded here as certain that foreign troops must be sent to Pekin to protect the legations, while the withdrawal of missionaries from the interior is considered imperative. Large portions ot th» prov4nces of Pe Chi Li and Shan Tung are in a state little better than absolute anarchy, and disorder is spreading in the province of Shan-Si in consequence o' *b» onrnnrajreinent received from the Harrisbnrg, May 28.--Israel W.

Hardin, with three eompanles of the Twentv-nlnth ment and bluejackets from tho boat Helena, landed at Palonog, Me»- bate Island, under the enemy's fire, routed the insurgents and. after an engagement lasting half an hour, occupied the town, without casualties. The insurgent commander, w i t h 20 officers and 230 men, surrendered on May 20, giving up a hundred, rifles. An impressive scene occurred on tho Plaza, when the prisoners were disarmed and liberated. The islanders were tound suffering from lack of food, owing to the blockade, and the -American authorities are endeavoring to rcliore them. Peace reigns and no trouble la expected in Manila, although the city is crowded with refugees from trie provinces, who are leaving tho unprotected hamlets in order to avoid the conscription which the insurgent leaders are enforcing, ns well as tae robbery and outrages at the dils. The investigation of the charge against Brig. Gen. Frederick Funston of having summarily executed two natives in the province of Zambeles has resulted in a discontinuance of the proceedings. It developed the fact that Gen. Funston caught the natives In tho very act of murdering bound Mac- cabebe, scouts, bis action, under thd circumstances, being regarded ;s justifiable. Charted With Mntlnjr. Baltimore, May 28.--Five seamen were arrested yesterday on the charge of mutiny preferred against them by Captain VOFS, of the British steani=!::p Kewholm. They claim they shipped on the vessel and wont aboard about noon Saturday. Later in the day the vessel sailed for Tampico. When the supper hou. arrived the men allege that they wore given nothing to eat but a can of tea and a few ship's biscuits. They told the captain, they assert, that they would not work unless given more substantial food. The vessel was anchored in the bay and returned yesterday with the men in Irons. Captain Voss claims that the men not only refused to work, but made various threats. Baltimore Electrician*' Strike. Baltimore. May 28.--The strike of the 300 employes of the United Railways and Electric company is still on, and last night the city was almost in total darkness. Many of the 1,400 arc lights used to light the city have not been trimmed or suplied with new carbons since the strike began, a week ago, and notwithstanding strenuous efforts made by the company to secure new men to fill the place of the striking trimmers and dynamo tenders their efforts seem to have been nullified by the efforts o fthe strikers to persuade what few new men the compnay secured to quit work and join the strikers.

The Atbletica Interfere With Education. Chicago, May 28.--The College of Physicians and Surgeons, of Chicago, decided to refuse recognition to athletics and no longer to give official sanction to the college football team. Dr. William E. Quine, dean of the college, says: "Experience has taught us that college athletics have a demoral- j izing and disturbing influence on the students, and interfere with the educational work of the college. We do not deny that athletics are of beneficial influence on the phjsica! development of the young men. but the interests of education demand first recognition." Boer Emiixarieii' Itinerary.

Chicago, May 2S.--The Chicaso police say that a man under arrest In Leipsic, Germany, on the charge of steallncr $15 000 worth of diammH-? \f Charles Woodward, alias Williams, alias Anderson, alias Watson, alias Wright, who has been absent from Chicago for 19 years. Woodward is known as one of the cleverest thieves in the world, aud has earned the cognomen of the "diamond swallower.' through repeated acts of that kind in order to escape conviction. He has stolen SoOO.OOU worth of diamonds, and hns sei veil nearly 20 years in Jails and penitentiaries in this country and in Europe. In the UO years of his life Woodward has become celebrated all over the world through his penchant for stealing diamonds. He caused a big sensation in Chicago ir. 1S7S. when on Aug. 10 of that jwir he stole ?32,000 worth of diamonds from a jewelry salesman in the Palmer House. He was arrested shortly afterward by William Pinkerton, and the only gem he had in his possession which belonged to the lot stolen from the salesman he swallowed. He Was convicted, nevertheless, and sent to Jolict to serve a year. He left-the penitentiary Jan. 1,18SO, and after living a fow months fn Ohirago, disappeared, and although he was arrested numerous times afterward he never returned to this city, so far as tho police kcc^. II»* arrest In Germany occurred four weeks ago and came to the notice of the Chicago authorities in a letter to Superintendent George Porteus, of the national bureau of identification, from the president of police of Berlin. THE RICH CLAIMS TAKEN UP. Little Left For the Thonnandx ITovr Runliinx to Cape Koine. Tacoma, Wash., May 28.--Power of attorney has been used so extensively at Cape Nome this winter that it is doubtful if ttuy of the 20,000 men now rushing northward will be able to secure claims in Nowe, York and the contiguous districts. The winter situation is described in a letter received last week at Juneau from Abner Ellis, a mining expert- He writes that several hundred men at Nome have spent the entire winter stampeding in every direction and locating thousands of claims for themselves and for others by power of attorney. The ground thns taken up includes the best areas along the chief creeks o fthe etnire gold bearing country. Ellis doubts if the men rushing in from the Pacific coast will be able to secure claims other than on the hilltops. No bench diggings have yet been found at Xome and the creek and valley claims have all been taken in the mnnner described. It is possible, but not certain, that the, new comers will be ^.b'c "» j; n tf UK* far interior and the gold bearing ground. It is yet unknown at Nome whether the powers of attorney so freely used will be reorganized by the lederal ocers arrffilv- ing this summer to administer the laws. The rich part of the beach so far as prospected is limited to ten miles. All other sections of the beach are spotted. The population of Nome looks for a summer influx, but has no idea that 25,000 people are rushing ther» from the Pacific coast and the Klondike. route at Cleveland or Buffalo. They will be in St. Paul on Jane 7 and in eijmia on the l£th. Oth»r inter- e cities may be included in their stopping places. It seems likely that the envoys may spend a day Jn Baltimore. Tbe delegates may or may not return to Washington after their visit to Philadelphia. A Venerable Bride and Groom. Toledo.
