In Colonel Baden-Powell , the hero of
Mafeking , dead or sick ?
The rumor that ho Is one or the
other came from Boer sources early
this week. Of course It was discred
ited , but It is remarkable that for three
weeks now the dispatches received
from Mafeking the last dated April
11 do not mention his name. Until
this silence Colonel Baden-Powell's
name , his varied activities , his schemes
and his Interchanges of hostilities

Lady Sarah Wilson's latest dis

is conspicuous by its absence ,
Tlio war office's reply to my Inquiry
about the colonel was , "Wo have no In

any evidence to contradict the Boer re
port they undoubtedly would quickly
publish it. Yet that report remains
That the British authorities should
desire to suppress news of Baden-Pow
ell's death ( If true ) as long as possi
ble Is easy to understand , for publica
tion of It would embolden the Boers to
make n final dash for the possession
of Mafeking.

LONDON , April 21. A cable from
Bloemfontoin reports fighting at Ka

This is an indication that the British

important skirmish there arc many
other Indications that Lord Roberts is
either starting or has already started
for the northern goal.
A dispatch from Capetown under to

"The censorship restrictions have

GRAND FORKS , N. D. , April 21.
Word was received here this after
noon that Edinburg in the northern
part of Walsh county was burning and
almost Immediately after the first in
formation came to hand the telegraph
wires went down and It was impossi
ble to get further information from
that source. A telephone message to
Park River brought the following par
ticulars from a reliable source :
The fire started at 3 p. m. in the
roar of Platens drug store , standing
at the south end of the business portion
tion of the town. A south wind aided
the flames in quickly spreading and ,
before anyone was aware what had
happened the whole town was ablaze.
It was impossible to learn how the
flro originated.
Several people attempted to save
their personal belongings , but wore
compelled to abandon the attempt and
flee for their lives. Two women , Mrs.
Lindahl and Mrs. B. .7. Orson , perished
in the flames and one child barely es
caped. The residence portion of the
city Is uninjured. The chief sufferers
are business men and the people who
occupied apartments above stores.

that the through freight rates between
the Pacific coast and all points south
of the Ohio and east of the Mississippi
river were canceled today. All of the
Interested roads , including the South

effect. As a result of this action , the
transcontinental rates east of the Mis
sissippi river arc added to the rate be
tween San Francisco and the river and
the through rate advanced in the exact
lamoumt of the added local , which
ranges from 30 cents per 100 pounds

"Grand Army bill. " The final draft of
the bill aggregates the disabilities un
der which applications may bo made
for pension under the act of Juno 27 ,

isting law is the changing of the rate

State Dcp.irtindit Proceeding Wlt'lt Cnu *
tlon In ltd U'orli.
WASHINGTON , April 21. Secre
tary Hay returned to Washington to
day from New York. An accumula
tion of departmental business awaited
him , but nothing in the nature of an
ultimatum directed to the Turkish
government was Included In the mass
of correspondence.
It Is apparent that , though deter
mined upon positive action , the State
department Is proceeding decorously
and with duo precautions against be
ing led Into any position which it can
not maintain. It may be stated by
authority that the State department
is entirely satisfied of the accuracy
of Minister Slams' statement relative
to the promises made to him by the
porte , notwithstanding the attempted
explanations and efforts to becloud the
Issue by declarations that the sultan's
promises were conditional.
The minister's dispatches , sent
while he was in Constantinople , nro
couched In exact terms ; his written
statements were fully confirmed by
his oral explanations to the depart
ment upon his return to the United
States , and , moreover , the pledges ho
secured were similar to those made
to the two proceeding United States
ministers to Turkey. In the opinion
of the State department officials it is
Inconceivab.c that three United States
ministers should bo consecutively de
ceived' in the terms of a promise or
should have reached similar misunder
The approval which the State de
partment's latest action seems to have
iccelvcd in Europe was anticipated ,
It being realized here that several of
the continental powers having claims
similar to our own against Turkey ,
being themselves prevented from Imi
tating any forcible demand upon the
Turkish government by reason of the
Jealousy of their neighbors , arc en
tirely willing that the United States
government shall act as a pioneer in
this matter and clear the way for a
prosecution of their own claims.
It is also believed here that the
European powers arc hopeful that the
attitude assumed by the United States
may Indirectly servo to deter the
Turkish government from the pro
posed arbitrary Increase of 3 per cent
In customs dues which it seeks to
make in defiance of the Joint protest
of the European powers. It appears
that our government Is lending Its
moral support to this pr.otest , for while
not Joining with the others in the
combined note , our charge , Mr. Gris-
com , has been instructed to make
lopresentations on our own account
in opposition to the Increase of duties.
Itlnc'or Ilcrmnn KtilcH on thu Hill to Give
Nelirmlci Settlers u 1.1ft.
WASHINGTON , April 20. Commis
sioner Herman of the general land
oflice. reporting upon the bill "for the
iclief of homestead settlers on that
portion of the great Sioux reservation
lying and being in the state of Ne
braska , formerly in the torrltory of
Dakota , now South Dakota , " says that
the design of the bill is to amend all
laws in force respecting that portion
of the great Sioux reservation in Ne
braska , so as to relieve the homestead
settlers thereon from the payment of
1.25 per acre. That the settlers shall
receive patents for their homestead
entries on the payment of the usual
land fees , without being required to
pay any other or additional sum. This ,
Mr. Herman says , would be a discrim
ination In favor of these settlers and
against those In South Dakota upon
the former Sioux reservation. In view
of this fact , and that settlers on In
dian lands generally arc required to
pay for the lands entered by them a
sum per aero sufficient to cither reim
burse the government for the amount
paid to the Indians or to compensate
the Indians for the lands ceded by
them , the commissioner says he can
not recommend the passage of the bill.

Millions of Dollars Worth of I'rojierty
Destroyed In tlio South.
NEW ORLEANS , April 22. The
flood which commenced the early part
of the week has alread caused , at a
conservative estimate , fully $3,000,000
loss in central and southern Missis
sippi , to say nothing of the damage
sustained by the railroads. The ex
tent of the losses have not yet been
fully realized , and it may be some
days yet before an accurate total can-
be reacehd , for mall communication
has been totally cut off between those
localities which have simered most
and tlic outside world.
In Louisiana , too , the damage done
by the unprecedented rains was great.
A special from Columbus , Miss. , re
ceived late tonight , fixes the loss In
that little town and Us Immediate vi
cinity at $500,009. Many farm houses
were carried away by the mad waters ,
the occupants barely escaping with
their lives , and the number of cattle
destroyed was great. A great many
cotton gins and mill houses were
washed away. Nearly every bridge
around Columbia was swept down
street. The Pearl river is now higher
than it has been known for many
years. Miles and miles ot the New
Orleans & Northwestern track is still
under water.

" I Would Cry Every Tlmo I' '
Wly Baby. ' *
"When ho
wns 8 months
old , first fes
ters and then
large boll9
broke out on
my baby's
nock. The
sores spread
down li I s
back until it
became a
mass of raw
flesh. When
I washed
and pow
dered him I ( _
would cry , realizing what pain he was In. .
His pitiful wailing was heart-rending. I
had about Riven up hope of saving him
when I was urged to give him Hood's Snrsa-
parllla , all other treatment having failed.
I washed the sores with Hood's Medicated :
Soap , applied Hood's Olive Ointment and'
gave him Hood's Sarsaparllla. The child :
teemed to get better every day , and very-
soon the change was quite noticeable. The-
discharge grew less , inflammation went
down , the skin took on a healthy color , and
the raw flesh began to scale over and a thin
Ekln formed as the scales dropped off.
Less than two bottles of Hood's Sarsapa
rllla , aided by Hood's Medicated Soap and
Hood's Olive Ointment , accomplished this
wonderful cure. I cannot praise these
medicines half enough. " Mns. GUEHINOT ,
