In speaking about Scott's
Emulsion for children, you
should not forget that it con
tains we and soda, just
what the child must have to
form strong bones and good
teeth. It's this forming time
you want to look after.
Growing bodies must have an
easily digested fat Just think, how
much of it there is in milk, as cream.
is even more easily digested than
cream. It's surprising how chil
dren thrive when given it.
Don't keep the children living on
the edge of sickness ail the time.
Make them strong and rugged,
plump and hearty. " Scott's Emul
sion of Cod-liver Oil and the Hypo
phosphites of Lime and Soda will do
this for them.

"U lib a I'antber Hatred of tbe Eng

Inspiration, then light," is the motto of
President Taul Krug?r of the Trans
vaal. Imagine u man hsss than 5 foot 7
iuches iu height, but in builil like a,
giant, his hair while with years, his
features homely iiml oarse, wearing
an ill fitting black doubled breasted
frock coat reaching below the knees.
Such a man is Ooni Paul. Void of look

In the fide of the greatest diplomatists
and statesmen in Knglaud for years.
lie was born on Oct. 10. lso. near
the present town of Graff Iteiuet. Caii
Colony. His parents were South Afri
can farmers, who loft their home in
Holland a few years before Paul was
born, hoping for good fortune iu the
new country. liut it did not come.
They remained mere squatters, and at
the time Paul was born his parents
owned only two or three slaves, which
meant little. The future president of
the Transvaal was christened S. J.
Paul Kruger, but at an early age the
first two Initials were dropped.'' IIo
uses them now when signing rfilti? pa
pers, lie was taught early to pray and
to handle a gun. He was a fearless
boy. When he was y, his parents re
lented P.ritish regulations and moved
to the northeastern part of Natal, not
far from I.adysmith, the lirst impor
tant strategic point in this war. There
were two oilier children iu the family,
a girl and a boy, both younger than
Paul. The brother was killed in a na
tive light in the Natal colony, und the
tdstcr lived to see her brother made
president of the Transvaal.
When Kruger was about 13 years of
age. his father, sister and he went with
a bullock team some distance Into
the Orange Free State. The senior
Kruger was forced to remain and told
Paul to take the team home and to
look after his sister.

Everything wont well until Taul and
his sister were about live miles from
home. Then a panther appeared iu
the road. The 1( bullocks in the team
took fright and ran away. The jolting
of the wagon threw the sister from the
seat into the roadway, where she was
at the mercy of the panther. Paul,
though unarmed, ran to her rescue and
tackled the panther. It was a lieree
struggle, and Kruger believed once or
twice that the panther was going to
prove too iiuich for him, but finally
he managed to kill the animal with his

Owens iu the New York Sun. The
F.oors at that time were on the verge
of a war with the Hritish. When I was
introduced to Kruger, he was suspi
cious of me. and it was only when as
sured that I was an American that he
became at all talkative. In those days
Kruger would talk Kuglish, but since
the visit of Sir Henry Lock to Pretoria
in ls;:t he has positively refused to ut
ter one word of Kuglish. The Kruger
of l&l'J was a poor man. He had ditii
culty in supplying his family with the
necessities of life, for besides his wife
he had ten children to care for. He
lived then in a farmhouse, but he left
the farm to care for itself, for he had
a more important matter to attend to
the creation of a revolution against the
Kuglish. CJeueral 1. .1. Joubert. com
mander of the l'.oer forces aud vice
president of the Transvaal; young Pre
terms, son of the republic's first presi
dent, and Kruger were planning the
P.oer uprising which came the follow
ing year, resulting in the independence
of the Iloers in 1SS1. It was these
three that managed the campaign
against the Kuglish forces at Majuba
The next time I met Kruger was in
1S:I. Although he was now the presi
dent of a nation aud reputed to be
worth S.VKni.imhi, I found him as sim
ple and as democratic as ho was In the
lays of 1S71. when he was unknown to
fame aud had hard work to support his
family. It was on this occasion that 1
realized the great qualities of this man.
lie cordially invited me to become his
guest during the short time that I was
to remain in Pretoria, an Invitation
which I readily accepted. He would
not talk English to me on this occa
sion, so 1 had to carry on conversa
tion with him through other members
of the family. The old president never
tired of talking about the United
States, designating this republic as his
big brother and wishing that he were
in a position to make a treaty with
America In order that he might favor
American merchants In trade.
"I can trust Americans," he would
say, "for I know that they do not want
liofore I left his residence he said to
at.- through his secretary: "When you
go home to the United States, tell the
IeopIe there for me that there Is a
small nation here, loving their country
and their lilerty and Idolizing the
American flag and the free institutions
of your country. May the United
States ever prosper and remain true to
the principles established by her
founders Is my earnest wish." As he
finished talking a tear ran down tbe
old man's cheek. He often talked of
the days when he drove his father's
via bullock team, and now prides him
self on the fact that he Is still able to
track a 'M foot whip over 10 bullocks.
Kruger is devoted to his wife, chil
dren, grand and great-grand children,
while they in turn adore him. He lives
Iu a uiodest house, which stands back
from the sidewalk about 13 feet. There
Is a grass plot in front aud a sentry
Ikix inside of the iron railing. This
house was presented to him by a syn
dicate. When the volksraad is in ses
sion, a soldier Is stationed in front of
the president's house, and no one, ex
cepting oliicials. may enter the resi
dence during the lay without ierm:s
ion. After 7 o'clock in the evening all
are welcome to the chief executive's
Every morning at G o'clock a negro
servant takes a cup of black coffee and
a big pipe tilled with tobacco to the
president's room. As soon as he has
drunk the coilee Kruger rises aud
smokes the pipe while he is dressing.
He is down stairs by t:".0 o'clock and
is ready to lead the family prayers at
7 o'clock. Preakfast is served about
7:'M a. m. His morning hours are taken
up with matters of state and the dic
tating of letters. The dinner hour Is 1
o'clock. At all the meals Kruger says
grace before bread is broken. He takes
a s-hort nap after the noon meal and is
ready promptly at 3 o'clock in the aft
ernoon to receive callers. The supper
is served at U o'clock, and the conclu
sion of this repast ends all the worri
ment of the day for Kruger. Many
writers have told how hot cups of
thick black coffee are served at fre
quent Intervals. Every person receiv
ed is served with coffee. Ik-sides his
salary of IHO.OOO a year, Kruger gets
$10,000 annually for coffee money.
There is a two gallon kettle of coffee
always hot in the kitchen.
- Since Kruger was elected president
in;18Sl he has been confronted with
some trying times. In lS-So his country
was in a bankrupt condition. It looked
ns if a famine was going to overtake
the land, but then gold was found in
the llarberton district. A messenger
from the new goldfields took a sack of
gold containing "0 ounces to the presi
dent, presenting it to him as the first
yield of gold from the Transvaal. Kru
ger was astounded when he saw the
gold. He asked where it came from
and was informed that it was from the
"Is there any more left?" asked Kru
ger. He was told that the country was
rich in gold ore and that millions of
pounds could be secured where that
"Thank God! My country Is saved!"
was his reply.
Kruger often expressed his regrets
that he was not able to receive an early
education. His . only book for years
was a Itible.
On the occasion of laying the last
bolt in the Protoria-Delagoa Bay rail
road, Xovemlor, 1S04, the president
went out in his private train to per
form the act. At Bronkher Spruit a
delegation of Boers met the presiden
tial party. Kruger had to speak. Out
from the railroad station, about a mile
distant, could be seen the three group
ed graves of the rear guard of a Brit
ish regiment which had been annihilat
ed by the Boers. The present trouble
was beginning to make itself manifest.
At least Kruger was farsighted enough
to realize that the storm would burst
before very long. Looking significant
ly toward the graves of the British
soldiers. Kruger said to the 2(H) old
IViers that had gathered round him:
"This is our country. Never give It
up. Bemember that we fought for it
and made it what it Is. I will never,
never, never permit n foreign foe to
take the Transvaal from you so long
as I shall live."
Ornsnhopppri Rained Down.
A severe storm visited English, Ind.,
recently, and after the storm was over
grasshoppers, almost as plentiful as
the raindrops, fell from the sky. In the
town the pavements were covered to a
deptli that made walking miserable. It
Is feared, according to the Cincinnati
Enquirer, that they will greatly injure
the wheat crop of this section, as it
seems they have come to stay until
cold weather shall kill them.

A strange coincidence attaches to the
death of General Sir William Symous.
He fell but 30 miles from the place
where, on the fatal day of Isandula,
his old regiment, the Twenty-fourth,
was cut up. It is sad to reflect that
both In the last battle of the first and
In the first battle of the second Boer
