THE BOERS REPORTED IN FINANCIAL STRAITS. AND THE CONSEQUENCES. A prominent, banker of New York, with impor- < tant Amsterdam and Paris connexions, has assured the Manchester Guardian\s correspondent that his; private information is that the Boers are in great straits for money, and are absolutely unable to place a loan. The supplies they had on hand at the beginning of the war are, he understands, nearly exhausted. Besides buying material of war, they have had to expend enormous sums in paying the salaries of foreign officers in the employ of the Transvaal, and the latter refuse to serve one day after their pay is stopped. According to the Correspondent's informant, banking houses having the closest. relations with the Boer Republics are of opinion that all the English have to do after relieving Ladysmith and Kimberley is to maintain a rigid blockade of all the frontiers, and the Boer causa will collapse for lack of funds. "FOR ENGLAND." LADY LINDSAY'S POEM. We take the two following verses from the patriotic poem which Lady Lindsay has written. The entire profits derived from the sale of For England," which is by special permission dedicated to H.R.H. the Princess of Wales, are handed over to the Soldiers and Sailors' Families' Association and in this way, during the last four weeks, £100 has been sent to Colonel Gildea for distribution. Copies of the poem (price 6d, post free 7d) may be obtained from Lady Lindsay, 41, Hans Place, London, S.W. Booksellers willing to assist in the sale are invited to communicate with Lady Lindsay. "For England" may be recited without per- mission and without fee. 1 Lies he upon the battle plain, Wounded, and calls? Again, again he calls, And calls in vain- And I Not nigh, To bind his hurt and ease his pain, And bring him back to life and joy again! Perchance the darkness falls Upon that ghastly bleak hill-side Where they, who make our grief, but more our pride, They whom we ne'er forget, Onr soldier heroes, all unconquered yet, Save by grim Death, Unyielding to the foe, yieid now their valorous breath For England. He lives Methinks I hear him speak to-night, >1 Dear heart, you would Nnt, keep me if you could. Your hand, your little English hand, Points to the fight. For sake of this our motherland, Her honour and her might, I went. Dear heart, If yours must prove the harder part: To stay and watch and wait From early dawn till evening late, From evening late to early dawn again to stay, And watch and wait, and so from day to day— Yet, as you love me, hold sweet courage high. God's care shall gnard my wife c- Av, whether He demand or spare my life, Whether I live or die For England!"
