GENERAL BOTHAS COUPI I
GENERAL BOTHA'S COUP I I END OF THE DAMARALAUD CAMPAIGN IN SlaNT ? ENEMY RELEASE PRISONERS Pretoria, Thursday --General Botha's latest coup in Damaraland brings the termination of the campaign in that territory very appreciably nearer. It is! the result of General Botha's tireless and I swift advance in face of enormous natural difficulties, and of his skilfully designed flank ng movements, which were vigorously carried out by his various brigadiers in most forbidding and difficult country. General Botha has completely out- generallea, out-manteuvred, and out- witted the Germans, and the capture or surrender of the remainder of the enemy in the field is regarded in competent j quartern as only a matter of a compara- tively short time. General Botha's achievement i6 perhaps the greatest blow j suffered by the enemy in JDumaraland. uur prisoners heieased. I As the result of the operations of the columns on both tlanks of General Botha's centre, all our prisoners in the hands (if the Germans have been re- leased. Brigadier-General Myburgh, who is now occupying Tsumeb, released some of our prisoners there. Many Prisoners Taken. I Leaving the Otnavi Grootfontein rail-I way at Asis and Gucab, he marched acro&> country and encountered the Ger- mans under Von Klies at Ghaub, sixteen j miles due south of Thumeb. The Uer- i mans retired, leaving 86 prisoners in our. hands, and subsequently Brigadier- General MyJmfgh took 5,00 odd prisoners 'I and some iieid guns. His losses were only one killed and three wounded. j Brigadier-General Britz made an im- j mense westerly detour, leaving Olyisau, j five miles west of Olywaronga, on June 30th, and marched on via Otyo and Okakena. He reached Namutoni, at the eastern extremity of the great Etosha Pan, where he took prisoners 150 Ger- i mans and released the remainder of the Union prisoners in their hands. He also captured large quantities of supplies. He. reports that his forces are well and in good condition, though they covered very nearly 200 miles.

A TRUE NERVE TONIC
A TRUE NERVE TONIC ) Most people need a tonic at this time of I year—old folk, weak folk, thin people, people who are run down through over- work or worry, and unable to take a holi- day. Nervous people especially need a tonic: toft. to alcoholic dlinks means in- creasing the mischief. A safe and reliable tonic that will build up the blood and strengthen the nerves is what most people need, and Dr. Williams' j Pink Pills are exactly that. The one symptom of thin blood that everybody recognises is pallor. Other people are liable to notice it before you do; but it is important that you should notice and heed the warning, because the thin blood that causes the pallor is re- sponsible for some drain on the body or some poisoning by its own waste materials. This poisoning, if not corrected, will re- sult in physical breakdown and ill- health. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills not only build up tbø blood, but they have a direct tonic and strengthening action on the nerves. As they are free from any harmful or poisonous drugs they are safe for every member of the family. Begin a course to-Jay, for Dr. Wiliianae Pink Pills for Pale People are obtainable from any dealer, but never accept worth- less substitutes. FREE.—Write to the Post Dept., 46 Holborn Viaduct, London, for a free copy I of the useful guide, "The Nerves and their Needs." A post-card will suffice.
