len Poe took place at noon in the large au-
ditorum of the Academic building.
Seventy-five per cent, of the popula-

veying the dock to Vera Cruz. The pur-
chasers wish to take it away about the be-
ginning of next month.
"There was no flaw in your victory,"

Mr. Roberts is a very much married man.

The costs in the Dreyfus case go above
•$4,000. He must pay this for the trial that
resulted in his conviction of a crime that
he didn't commit, and each of the Gener-
als who made stump speeches against him
will be paid out of his funds at the rate of
$6 per day. The court seems to have re-

It is reported that in case of war the
Boers will dynamite the mines. The re-
