London Kelt, the Rev. Abe! J. Parry,

a railway carriage scaling mo heights

friend remarked, "Well, well, they will
lay down 11 railway to take us to

to overhear the remark, whereupon
sudenly turning round, he exclaimed,
"No, no, It would never pay there is

Tho Newport national eisteddfod

An unknown Welsh hero of tho
Jameson raid Is referred to by r. E.
Garrett, the editor of tho Capo Times,
In his book, "The Story of nn African
Crisis." The native wit of this young
Welshman enabled the Ultlanders to
cover up the most serious part for
them of the plot against the Boer
government, This was nn attack upon
Pretoria, tho seat of thu latter. Tho
Irene estate, almost within gunshot of
the capital, had been secured for tho
purposes of the project, where a depot
of nuns nnd nmmunltlon wns to bo
formed. A couple of dnys before Dr.
Jim came Into contact with tho Boors
two buck-wagons, drawn by oxen, left
Johannesburg for the Irene estate,
whlcn was safely reached. Here tho
men stored the goods In the buildings
of the estate, nnd then awaited de
velopments. Strange to say, on the
Tuesday following, orders came that
the goods were to be loaded up again
and returned to Johannesburg with
nil possible dispatch. Again the men
worked like Trojans, nnd hnd their
wagons full and their teams Inspanned
In double-quick time. But how to
reach Johatinebburg unseen by tho
Boers! For the country was now all
astir from the news of Jameson and
the splendid rally of the Boers to cut
him off. The Pretoria road was likely
to bo much frequented, nnd by Just
the sort of parties mat tho pretended
traders did not want to meet. The
happy thought struck the young Eng
lishman, or, rather, Welshman, In
chnrge of the expeuitlon to avoid the
president's hlghwny, and striking
across the veldt, by an ordinary farm
er's load lending to the Rand. Thanks
to this Idea and good luck and hard
work, ho managed to reach Johannes
burg without encountering any too In
quisitive party. The men had a nar
row escape from capture, for on Tues
day morning a Boer force reached the
Irene estate to investigate, but found
the birds flown. Information of the
project had reached Kruger, whose
nerves had thereby been so (luttered
that he had refused to Jet the Pretoria
artillery leave the capital to meet
Jameson. Who was the young Welsh
man? SIIAKESPEAUHAN MENU.
