MAIN flUENOE You May 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, 1.

Major Babtie Won Victoria Cross by Succoring Wounded Under Fire. Vrcderick Troves in Tho British Medical Journal The battle of Colenso was fought on December 15, on the morning of a brll- llan summer's day. At dawn the men had marched out eagerly and In keen 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 wounded. 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 Grobler's Kloof, 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.
