of framing a new Constitution for the
time-honored State of South Carolina,
of which I am a smaU. part and being,

which is to become not only a matter
of history but a matter of absolute
life or death to the good character of
our State government, that you will
grant to women all the privileges and
immunities under the lavw granted to
Whbile all of you may not approve
of admitting them as political allies,
not one of you can deny or disprove
logically their legitimate claim to such
recognition. The divine right of
kings is not questioned, an:d the divine
right of woman is~ a fact even more
stubborn and lygitizmate. It is not
necessary for me to enter into a long
and detailed dissertati. a putting forth
our reasons for believing thzat sitch is
our prerogative, for it is clear to my
mind, as to all unbiased and unpreju

This new Constitution that you are

why should -men refuse them admnis

but without avail, and seeing what

A NEW AFRICAN ROMANCE
rriving I gave the horse to one of
bhe stable boys, and -went into the oen
ral hut. There was no sign of Stella,
hough the things she had been packing
ay- about-the floor. .I passed first -into

all the others, but still saw no sign of
her. Then .I went out. and calling a
Kaffr in the garden, asked hirm if he
had seen-hi's mistress:
He answered: "Yes." He had seen
her carrying flowers, walking towards
the graveyard, holding the little white
girl-my daughter-as he called her, .by
the hand, when the sun stood "there,"
and he pointed to a spot in the horizon
where it would have been about an hour
and a half before. -The two dogs were
with them," he added. I turned and ran
towards the graveyard, which was about
a quarter of a mile from the huts. Of
course* there 'was* no reason to be anx
ious-evidently she .had gone to lay the
lowers on her father's grave. And yet I
When I got near the graveyard I met
one of the natives, who, by my orders,
had been set round the kraals to watch
the place, and noticed that he was rub
bing his eyes and yawning. Clearly he
had been 'asleep. I asked him if he had
seen his mistress, and he answered that
he had not, which, under the circum
stances, was not wonderful. Without
stopping to reproach him, I ordered the
man to follow me,' and went 4o the
graveyard. There, on Mr. Carson's
grave, lay the drooping flowers which
tella had been carrying, and there in
the fresh mold was the spoor of Tota's
veldsehoon, or hide slipper. But where
I ran from the graveyard and called
aloud at the top of my voi.e, but no an
swer came. Meanwhile the native was
more profitably engaged in tracing their
spoor, He followed it about a hundred
yards till he came to a clump of mimosa
bush that was situated between the
stream and the ancient marble quarries
just above the waterfall and at the
mouth of the ravine. Here he stopped,
and I heard him give a startled cry. I
rushed to the spot, passed through the
trees and saw this. The little oper
space in the center of the glade has
been the scene of a struggle. There, in
the soft earth, were the marks of three
human feet-two shod, one naked
Stella's, Tota's and Hendrloa'. Nor wai
this all. There, close by, lay the frag
ments of the two dogs-they were

For a moment I literally staggered
beneath the terror of the shock. Theni
I roused myself from my despair. I bade
the native run and alarm the people at
the kraals, telling them to come armed
and bring me guns and aimunition. He
went like the wind, and I turned to fol
low the spoor. For a few yards .It was
plain enough-Stella had been dragged
along. -I could see where her heels had
struck the ground; the child had, I pro
sumed, been carried-at least there were
no marks of her feet. At the wvater's
edge the spoor vanished. The wat'er was

We gained the spot by the stream
where Stella had been taken. The na
tives looked at the torn fragments of
the dogs, and at the marks of violence,
and I heard them swearing to each other
that whether the Star lived or died they
would not rest until they had extermi
1nated every baboon on Babyan's Peak. I
echoed the oath, and, as shall be seen,
we kept it.
We started on along the stream, fol
lowing the spoor of the baboons as we
,best could. But the stream left no
spoor, and the hard, rocky -banks but
little. Still we wandered on. All night
we wandered th'rough the lonely moon
lit valleys, startling the silence into a
thousand echoes with our cries. But no
answer came to them. In vain our eyes
searched the sides of precipices formed
of water-riven rocks fantastically piled
one upon another; in vain we searched
through endless dells and fern-clad th
crannies. There was nothing to be 'Str
found. How could wve expect to find two ga
human beings hidden away in the re- It
cesses of this vast stretch of mountain zal
ground, which no man yet had ever fully im
explored? They.were lost, and in all h
human probability lost forever. da
To and fro we wandered hopelessly, km
till at last dawn found us footsore and ev
weary nearly at the spot whence we had al
started. We sat down waiting for the
sun to rise, and .the. men ate of such
food as they had brought with them, M,
ahd sent to the kraal foi more. M
I sat upon a .stone- with a breaking
heart. I oat not describe my feelings.
Let the reader put himself in my posi- I
tion and perhaps he may get some Idea b
of them. ' Near me was old Indaba- di
imbi, who sat staring straight before of
him as though he were looking into as
space, and taking note of what went on T
there. An idea struck me. This man w
had some occilt power. Several times tj
during our adventures he had prophe
sied, and in every case his prophecies hi
had proven true. He it was who, when
we escaped from the Zulu Impi, had told. 7
me to steer north, because there we =
should find the place of a white man tj
who lived under the shadow of a great P
peak that was full of baboons. Perhaps f,
he could help in this extremity-at any ,
rate it was worth trying.
"Indaba-zimbi," I said, "you say that el
you can senid your spirit through the
doors of space and see what we can not sl
see. At the least I know that you can b
do strange things. Can you not
help me now? If you can, and will save c,
her, I will give you half the cattle that a
we have here." t]
I "I never said any thing of the sort' d
acumazahn," he answered. "I do d
things, I do not talk about them. 13
Neither do I seek reward for what I do
like a common witch-doctor. It is well
that you have asked me to use mywis
dom, Macumazahn, for I should not a
have used it again without being asked s
-no, not even for the sake of the Star
and yourself, whom I love, for if so my a
fore I might not use my wisdom unless
you thought well to call upon my spirit.
However, it~ would have been no good to
ask me before, for I have only just
found the herb I want," and he produced ~
a handful of leaves of. a plant that was -
unfamiliar to me. It had prickly leaves, .
shaped very much like those of the corn
mon English nettle..
"Now, Macumazahn," he went on,
"bid the men leave us alone, and then
follow me presently to the little glade
downthere by the water."
I did so. When I reached the glade I
found Indaba-zimbi kindling a small fire. m
under the shadow of a tree by the edge at
of the water-.o
"Sit there, Macumazahn," he said, h<
pointing to'a stone near the ire, "and o,
do not b~e surprised or frightened at any b~
thing you see. If you move or ca,11 out th
we shall learn nothing." vi
I sat down and watched. When the sh
fire was alight and burning brightly the y
old fellow stripped himself stark naked,
-and, going to the foot of the pool, ce
dipped himself in the water. Then he 'm
came back shivering with the cold, and. i
leaning over the little fire, thrust leaves
of the plapt I have mentioned into his
mouth and began to chew them, mut- fu:
terings as he ,chewed. Most of the re- Vi
maining leaves he threw on the fire. A pa
dense smioke -rose from them, but he -
held his head in this smoke and drew it 10'
do.wn into his lungs till I saw that he he
was exhibiting every sign of suffocation. w]
The veins in his throat and chest
swlled, he gasped loudly, and his eyes, ha
from which tears were streaming,
seemed as though they were going to to
start from his head. Presently he fell ad,
over on his side, and lay senseless. I wa
was terribly alarmed, and my first im- Ini
pulse was to run to his assistance, but sh<
fortunately I remembered his caution, . ta

Indaba-zimbi lay on the ground like a ab:
