'"K niralnst superior forces, to llnd n

fronts 11 commander. General De Wei
(stems to ho possessed of an Intultlun
for tlctectlni; uuk sjiots. When v
sees one he goes for It. Sanuns I'ui,
HeddeisbiirK, Dewetsdorji, Llndtey and
Honmesprult testify to his skill as n
lie Wet Is a consummnte. strategist.
He Is, In my opinion, Infinitely cleverer
thnu the average Uritlsh cm airy oW'
cer, ugalnst whom he Is pitted. He
should hac been taken, with all hU
heavy artillery, nt Klmberley. llut he
wasn't. He pulled nil his own chest
nuts out of the fire, Rrnbfied a big con
voy, (he likes conoys) as well and
opened a hole through which Cronje
might hnve crawled line! that unfortu
nnte general been less pig headed. Il'i
should, by all the rules of club window
war critics, have been nabbed, "lock,
Btock and barrel" at Wepener. Not lis.
He effeited a safe tetrcat around the
Uritlsh right wing, and n Junction with
LDotha, nnd lived to harass Lord Rob
erts' line of communications. They
thought they had htm nt Llndlcy, In
stead, he had them. I anticipate tl.e
English generals will have n merry
chase before they round up the Kro!
HIS 1'Rl'DENT IIURCIHERS.
A man who himself did not know
fear, Dc Wet could never understand
the timidity of a majority of his burgh
ers. However, he knew that It exist
ed, and reckoned with it. Wise Is the
general who knows his own troops,
particularly If they nre-Irregulars.
I do not know when I ever felt so
sorry for a man as I did for General
IJe Wet at Thabn Kop. He had in-
solved to beat hack n Uritlsh foue
which was hovering on .his flank, jnd
embarrassing his retreat, and so dis
posed his commandos on a number of
kopjes. The position was cleverly cho
sen, and nn engngement would cer
tainly have resulted In a severe check
to.the Uritlsh had It come about.
An incident, one of the most singu
lar In war, turned the affair Into a
farce, The Uritlsh force, apparently
numbering several thousand men, de
ployed, and advanced with the evident
purpose of tuklng the Iiocr positions by
assault. This was precisely what Osn
tral I)e Wet wanted. Ho lnd prepared
a neat little trap. Tho Urltlsn won;
yet fully 1000 yards away nml the
Uoers were only sniping mildly n draw
them on, when suddenly the English
field batteries opened, nnd sharpuu! be
gan to scatter leaden "binding" oer
the kopjes. Without warning, without
orders, without any tangible reason
thnt one can lay hold on, the Uoers de
serted tholr positions and heganapic
cipltate flight. In five nilii'ites it was
n stampedo, which carrh d De Wet's en
tire force, nrtlllery, laargers, nnd nil,
bnck for miles. This 'je'ong ,0 "lu In
explicable thlngB of war.

When I climbed down from my posi

Hnofd laager to Ux"n what had cviucd
the retreat of, the Uoers, I found only
General De Wet and nbout fifty burgh
ers, Tears of rago nnd mortification
dimmed the general's eyes nnd trickle
down his benrd, and his utternneo was
thickened by emotion. Seeing me dis
mount nnd salute, he nddressed me lu
Dutch, forgetting that I could not un

RED TAPE AT PRETORIA.
In addition to this handicap, llotha
had to encounter the enmity nnd Jeal
ousy of the older generals over whose
heads he had risen. Some of there
generals took no pains to conceal their
animosity, and openly endeavored to
thwart the plans of the young com
mandant general. 1 Jiey frequently suc
ceeded In their endeavors. Vet under
the weight uf n stupendous task Louis I
llotha never fnltered or repined. To)
the end, the bitter end, he maintained
n hold nnd confident demeanor. Sel
dom did ho betray Irritation nt the hin
dering Jealousy of his lieutenants, or
the crass wavering nt Pretoria. Once
only once did I hear him complain,
dgustedly, that he could not even
shift a commando of 100 men from one
position to another without submit
ting the proposition to the Wur Office.
