ed single deeds of heroism surpassing
in brillancy, perhaps, any singie deed
of any of these great soldiers. In
such cases, as a rule, these heroes are
knewn only to the reader -of abtuse
history. A single instance rill serve

This little republic, with a total

now become the battlefield of tlie war

indications that the British policy is
to conciliate this tiny government and
then fight to finish with President
Kroger. Tfcts Orange Free State is
