opponents of the war are read to the

aided the enemy more than climate,

Arrival of General Roberta KcvItcs
LONDON, Jan- 11. During the in
terlude of apparent military inactivity
and official secrecy. Lord Roberts and
Lord Kitchener have arrived at the
seat of war. It is assumed that their
clear vision, supported by 30.000 fresh
men, who are due to arrive in South
Africa within thirty day, will alter
the situation, and that the fourth
month of the campaign will witness
the beginlng of victories for British
arms. They are not, however, ex
pected to produce definite results for
some days, but their mere presence
will restore the shaken confidence of
the men at the front in their generals.
Lord Roberts finds 120,000 men on the

A City Without Livery Stable.
A worthy American citizen, having
made a fortune, fared forth to see the
world. European business ways and
habits thoroughly disgusted this ner
vously keen expert in money making,
and he poured forth his scorn to some
friends he met in Paris. One of them,
knowing the ignorance of the old gen
tleman on subjects without the circle
In which he had lived, ventured on a
Joke. "I agree with you," he said. "I
agree with you thoroughly. Why, do
job snow, sir, i was last week in a
city of 125,000 inhabitants, and I was
overcome, sir overcome to find they
hadn't a livery stable in the city."

victim. "Gentlemen, see there! Just
consider that!" Then, jumping to his
feet, as the thought struck him: "Why,
gentlemen, a fortune's awaiting some
one there! Where's tb place? What's
the name of It?" Venice," said the
joker. "Good! I'm tired of this place
anyway. I'll go right down there to
morrow, and put a little horse sense in
that town. Gentlemen, you're in this
good thing with me if you choose."
They were all in it, and they invested
