TttB LEADER UUTHRIE OKLAHOMA
LONDON FOB. U. 1: a. m..-The
news o( tho day te ttia nrootf retire-
ment of the Brtttsh from Che ColMburg
dlstrriot under lte.vy Uor pressure- and
probably sftor brisk fighting. Thus at
u thno -when Lord Roborte It apimrenUy
able to pue an army into the JTree
State the Boere make a counter stroke
In unknown tout eeemlniy great force
0t far from the vital line or railway
connofcng Dmm ami Oromt river.
Military observers do not I'egnnl this
as more hem a menace. Nevertheless
the news produces an unpleasant imprec-
trton ltere. General French Wad mmnou-
vred to get Boers out of Itanabers; in De-
cember . On January 1 H was reported
that ha could take Cotaburg In two days
with relnforeemr'. i Theso were sent
but tlie iBoera wee rsm reinforrwd. Since
then the British lines Imve been extend-
ed eat ami west so that the opening of
this week ifhey constitute I a great horse-
uhoe twenty-fire mtlee In lemsrth. The
llnce wore not continuous but all the
strong posMtora were held.
'General French when he joined Lord
ItobortB presumably took most of ti
cavalry. General Clements was left with
the Infantry to hold the Boers In check
but Commandant Dchutey with a double
turning movement Its comwHed ihe
Brltinh to concentrate at Kensburg be-
side threatening Low! Roberts' communi-
cations. The Boer mastory of the district has
caused a vpread of the Insurrection but
this r doubt will promptly be Duppresa-
ed as targe British forces are available
not far away.
The Indications n.i to General Buller's
ImmeMate intentions are contradictory.
Cm informant who has intimate rela-
tions with the wur office predicts a
movi tre-ac within the next day or two.
A number of correspondents who have
Deen with General Bullcr. however. Imve
gone to Durban for a few days rest tm-
nr the impression that nothing is to be

Hn tha (Morning Post discussing the news
from Itonsburg. snys:
"This intelligence at tho natural price
paM for a blow elsewhere. The ooncen-
trwtson at Olodder rlvtsr is apparently
accompanied by a weakening1 of the force
at Colaeburg and) of title the Boers have
tuken advantage to assume the offensive.
"Meanwhile It looks as though the ene-
my Iwfd withdrawn Uieir forces from
tMagerfontein to reinforco those at Coles-
burg where a Boer victory would threat-
en the communications between Cape-
town and tho Mouuor ivr. '
neviowiifcr tiho -wlwle campaign Mr.
Wilkinson says that die type of the com-
ing operations recalls that of the Ameri-
can clvM war.
Developing tlMs thought ho remarlaa:
".Brhiali strategy must be to crush
suooesslon each of the tntree principal
Boer forces near Klmberley CoVesburg
and Stromborg by bring against them
great stiporlor numbers. Murti depends
on whwt happens In Natal. General
Joubort Is noti likely to abandon hie pres-
ent itrprlso against It'mith until
disaster no ho Boer army compels him.
Tho opinion that tl invasion of Ulie
Free State will suffice to bring the Free
SuU troops out of Natal and will Induce
the Freo Staters to submit is not based
on a rue estimate of ho nature of the
Boer. Tho two republics are fighting .or
national oxlstenco and thoy will stand or
"Tills war will not bo onded by stram'-
ical marioouvering or by the occupation
of BoograpW.cal points but by the de-
struction of (the Boer army taking the
word destruction In Its mHltary sense of
decisive defeat involving dlsporsVm of an
army as an organized! fighting force."

Honor a Healthful Food.
Scientific men say that honey la a
much moro healthful sweet than su-
gar and has many valuable properties.
It is nutritive and when used freely
with bread makes an excellent food for
children. It is laxative und may bo
used advantageously In place of medi-
cine b: porsons of sedentary lives. Be-
ing also the daintiest and most deli-
cious of sweets an extract of blossoms

Every week or two sho takes the stock-
