sions had gr difftehy in repressing
his holheaeda rai , nombly in 19
when Joubrt.' with Kruger anid Preto
rius, wa- p11annin the rebellion to over
throw the British rule in the Transvaal.
The result wa- "iluba hill and the
practical indepe- eme of the Transvaal.
It was Joubet wh organizted the army
of the South African republic.
According to the general's plans every
native became a trained soldier without
leavinig the farm v ith his equipmcnt al
wars at hand. So near perFect was the
system carried out that within 4 hors
after the present war was declared the
Boer nation was un~der arms.
It was also due to General Joubert that
the South African republics succeeded
in amassing the anununitions of wa
and provisions which have stood them
in such good stead during the conflict
now in progress.
When the JT:nexn raiders were locked
up in Pretoria jail, Jouber t was strongl
in favor of their immed( iate execuitioni.
In spite of these characteristics, Jou

In N ovemiber last it was ireportedl that
General Joubert ad bee illed.i action
and later report sid h~e was darnger
osly wounded and: had to use ai cart in
ord'r to follow the operations in the
field. The circumstances of' the death of
General Joubert are not explained in the
disuach from Lo renzio MLarq4uez, which
recalls th.~ fact that WYilliam Cox, a
newsawhr corresponlder, who was re
ently released from~ p~rison1 at Pretoria
and who has arrived at Durban, said
General Joubert was apparently sums
peted of half-hearte.dness and that his
life would be in da.nger at the hiands of
the burghers~ if Prctor-ia was besieged.

There is a mad scramble. a crackling
of twigs, a mad splash, and-the head
of a very badly frightened muskrat
can just be seen on the lake's surfulce
as it frantically pushes its way into
You creep softly back to your boughs
rather ashamed at yourself and glance
furtively at the guide, who sleeps
peacefully through it all. At last na

it is quite possible, though of course
not demtonstrable, that the humble
barn fowl has been a larger benefactor
of our rade than any mechanical in

the mainstay, and nowhere is there
