Durban, March 3. Correspondents
who have returned here from Lady
smith say that the relief came quite
unexpectedly. At noon on Tuesday
the firing of General Ruller's army
seemed to recede instead of approach
ing, and the garrison was consequent
ly depressed. 1'verybody was startled
to hear the garrison's 4.7 gun firing.
It had not been used much of late,
owing to the diminishing ammunition.
On hurrying out it was found that the
Foers were trying to remove the big
gun on Bulwana by the erection of a
derrick. This proved that something
extraordinary was happening. The
other garrison guns then directed their
tire on Hulwana with the result that
the lioers were compelled to abandon
the attempt with the derrick.
Later on they placed the gun on a
wagon, which capsized in a donga, I
During the afternoon, whenever the
lioers were seen approaching, the Brit-;
ish resumed the shelling of Bulwana.
About 4 o'clock a terrific thunder storm
broke over the town, just after a mes
sage had been heliographed from Wa
gon hill that the Boers were in foil
retreat. Other officers said they be
lieved they could descry British cavalry,
but most people supposed that the :
wish was father to the thought. I
As soon as the storm ceased the
British guns reopened on Bulwana, '
gradually concentrating the fire on the
left and driving the Boers before them,
with the object of preventing the ene
my from .hampering any British ap
proach. An hour later a party of Brit
ish horsemen could be seen crossing
the flat below Bulwana at a distance
of some miles. It is impossible to
ascribe the excitement and entnnsi
am among the troops that followed, j
Most of the townspeople had been
driven into the houses by the storm
and did not learn the good news until
The storm broke out again at 7
'clock in the evening and continued
until 2 o'clock the next morning. It i
must have seriously hampered the re I
treating Koers. Ihe British gunners
kept a sharp watch to prevent any
further attempt to remove the Bul
wana gun. The British naval gun was
fired "at intervals through the night

out to look after the gun and to occupy

wiped out injunctions made of record

Another Victory for tlie
KIC l'own In
The Anglo-American line of boats Is
the only line in Kgypt which flies the
American flag, savs the Woman's
Home Companion. That was the final
inducement they oftt-r.it winch decided
my choice of the .vt.ty tlower. But
while we knew that she was obliged
to fly the British .flag also, we were in
dignant beyond words to see a huge
union jack floating at the top of the
forward flagstaff and beneath it a toy
American flag about the size of a cigar
box. Beneath the English flag! I
nr-nrly wept with rage. The owner of
the line was at hand, and I did not wait
to draw up a petition or to consult my
fellow Americans. I just said: 'Have
the goodness to haul down that infant
American flag, will you? I have no
objection to sailing under both, but I
do object to such an insulting display
in size. Besides that, you seem to have
forgotten that the American flag never
flies beiow any o. her flag on God's
green earth!" He made some apolo
gies and gave the order at once. The
baby was iian'.ed down amid the smiles
of the Engiiii pa-sergers. But at As
siout we w. avenged when an enor
mous American fljg arrived by rail and
was hoisted to the main flagstaff,
twenty fei h.gafr than tl.o British.
When I cunie on deck that Sunday
morning and saw that blessed flag wav
ing a' ;ve me ever thing blurred before
mv eves, and 1 ilu as.-ure you that it
- mo-t beKutiful sight that I saw
in a.i iuat Miircpean continei.t. You
may talk about your temples and your
ruins and your old masters! Have
you ever seen Old Glory flying straight
out from a flagstaff in a foreign coun
try 7.C00 miles away from home?"
There is more Catarrh in this section of the
country than all other diseases put together, and
until the last few years wa-i supposed to be in
curable. For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease, and prescribed local
remedies, and by constantly tailing to cure with
local treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional
diseas . and therefore requires constitutional
treatment. Mall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured
by I-'. J. ('honey Mo, Toledo. Ohio, is the only
constitutional cure on the market. It is tak n
internally ill doses from 10 drops to a teaspron
tul. It acts directly on the blood and mucous
surfaces of the system. They etter one hundred
doiiars for and case it fails to cure. Send for
circulars and testimonials. Address.
