critics to bo the best over hciitil In

was hold In the South Main Avenuo
Welsh Calvlnlsllc Mfcthodlst church,
and was under the leadership of J.
Henry Jones. Hev. HurIi IJ.avlos, pas
tor of the chuieh, presided, and .spoke
briefly in Welsh of tho Importance of
such events to the church work in gen
einl. The attendance will exceedingly
gratifying and tho Intotest shown In
the sIiirIiir was wot thy of special men
tion. Tho singing festival, or "Oymanfu
Ganu," as it is lenow n in Welsh, lb a
feature of the Welsh Congregational
church, and it might properly be de
fined as a rehearsal of the congrega
tional hymns, which .11 e alvas a fea
ture of every service In the chinch.
The festival Is lifldtsevot.il times each
year for tho put pose of I111p.it ting the
proper slRniflc.inee and lmpi easing the
importance of singing In tho chinch
work. One must attend a gymanfu In
order to get the full benefit of Its in
fluence. Tho evening session was nttended by
such a large gatheilng that the Belie
nue Calvlnistlc Methodist church was
totally inadequate to accommodate tho
throng. Piofessor Daniel Prothctoc,
the well known leader and musician,
arrived in the city late In the after
noon and conducted the singing at the
evening service. His skillful leadership
was an Inspiration to the congiegation,
and all the select-Ions weie rcndeied
with much feeling and expiession.

Spend All the Money
You please on handsome furniture, costly paintings,
statuary and other magnificent ideas, but if you take
away softening influences and charming graces of ap
propriate draperies, the effect of all your collection jof
costly beauty would be so diminished as to become
wearisome to the eye and a positive bore to the refined
or sensitive mind.
Beautiful Draperies Are Not Expensive
This week we are making a practical demonstration of
this fact, and the practical home maker, housekeeper.
or co zy room or corner furnisher may learn much in a
few minutes spent in our Drapery Department these
days that all the reading and home study of a month
could not impart. The truth is, we are enthusiastic
on the subject of
Popular Priced Draperies
And upholsterings and offer opportunities to buyers of
taste such as are not to be had elsewhere. All the new
m o fabrics, tone effects and colorings are seen at their best
in our extensive collection, and our long and success
;r hi;ful study of how to make homes beautiful at a surpris
" ingly low cost may be of value to you,
Of Course, We include Lace Curtains
Door Panels, Sash Curtains, etc. Some are made in
", ' the Scrautou factory, others come from abroad, Iuex
t" pensive Nottinghams and Irish Points are much sought
' after and the new art effects are lovely. Then there
are the dainty Muslin and Swiss Curtains with ruffles
or'plaiu; elegant Brussels and Irish Point goods; Ori
ental Buropeau aud Araericau haugings, etc, noue of
which will frighten you by their cost, Suppose you drop
in aud see them this week,

The True Version.
Tho several stories regarding tho In
juiles sustained by John Connell, of

finished their dally practice of climb
ing, they practiced Jumping from the
second story Into a net stretched bp
low, and were about to stop for the
evening, when Connell climbed to the
thlid stoiy and, without warning,
Jumped. The not was sxretched rather
tight and only gave about eighteen
Inches, with the result that when Con
nell struck It, which ho did with his
heels first, ho rebounded backward,
and in an effort to save himself ho
strained his back quite severely.

spirits, and with a swing of the shoul
ders which told of certain victory. Be
fore sundown they were beaten back.
more than 1,000 dead and wounded
were lying on me field, the hospital
tents were filled to overflowing and
the wagons which were prepared to
move forward were moving back.
The gallant attempts made to save
the guns led only to further loss of
life. Colonel Long had been shot
down, some fifty horses had been sac
rificed, and the scanty ranks of the
English wore thinning rapidly. Still
the cry went up, "Hold fast to the
guns!" and when the last forlorn hope
had been attempted and had failed,
the green eld was littered with the
wounded, the dying and the dead. Near
by the guns was a donga, and into this
many of the wounded had crawled.
The galloper who took up the news of
the disaster reported tho need of help
for the Injured. To this call Major
Babtto at once responded as a volun
teer, His duty did not tako him to
the battle-field. Ho rode down to this
Inferno. He might as well have ridden
before a row of targets during the
smartest moment of rifle practice.
Three times was his horse shot under
him before he reached the donga. Here
in the face of a galling fire, he dragged
the wounded Into shelter, and a little
later he ventutcd out under a rain of
lead to bring In Lieutenant Roberts,
who was lying In the open, desperately
For some seven hours Babtie kept by
the wounded In the shallow donga, no
one daring to lift a head above the
edge of the dip. He alone had a water
bottle, and ho doled out what water
ho hud In a slxty-mlnlm measuring
glass. He was also able to relieve pain
by morphine, and when not otherwise
occupied he sheltered poor Roberts fuce
from the scorching sun by holding
above it a letter he chanced to have
In his pocket. It was not until dark
ness was setting in that It was pos
sible to venturo from the scant shelter
tho donga provided.
The scene of this heroic act was a
level stretch of green veld lying be
tween the river and a brown road
which led with many desultory turns
to Hlangvvonl. To the left were the vil
lage und gardens of Colenso, and to
the right tho grove of mimosa trees, In
which the Boer force was hidden. Be
yond tho river rose the enemy's In
trenchments and the grim ridge of
Tho last time I passed over this spot
was on the day after our cavalry had
reached Ladysmlth. It was on a day
of peace, The sky was cloudless, and
no breath-of air stirred tho grass. The
bodies of the horses belonging to the
lost guns were lying In a long line
across tha veld, Their bones were as
whlto as aio the bones of museum
skeletons, for the vultures and the ants
had done their woik thoroughly, Tha
hides woro still drawn over tho bleach
ing bones, and round the necks of
these Ill-fated beusts were still the col
lars and the harness by which they
had diagged tho guns Into action.
Thero was an absolute stillness over
the whole scene. To the left a train
was being shunted at Colenso station
with leisurely peislstence, for the day
was hot and the sun dazzling. To the
tight were the mimosa groves, glorious
with yellow blossoms, In the shadow
of which the Boers had hidden.
It wus stiunge that It was from these
dainty woods that tho hellish fire had
pouied forth which luld low so muny
English lads, for on this quiet day
the tiees were busy with complaining
doves. By the banks of tho donga,
