DOW BOERS PITCH THEIR LAAGERS.
Always Put Tents Between Parallel Lines
A. C. Htles, thp Australian corre
Spo4dent who was captured by the
Boer$ and released by President Steyn,
wrtitig frqN Burgh'ersdorp, sags:
"Possibly it may interest English
men ad wotnen, too, for that matter,
to know what a fighting laager is like,
and, as I have seen half a dozen of
them from the enemy's side of the
wall, a rough pen sketch may not be
amIss. In war times the Boer never
under any clrcumstances makes his
iaager in the open country if there
are any kopjes about. No matter how
secure he may fancy himself from at
tack, no matter if there Is not a foe
within fifty miles of hin, the Boer
comdander always pitches his laager
In a place of safety between two par
allel lines of hi1ls, so that an attack
cannot be made upon him, either front
or rear, without gIving 'aim an im
mens'eldvagtige over the attacking
force, even if the enemy is ten times
as strong in numbers. By this means
the Boers make their laagers almost
Impregnable. If they have a choice of
ground they pick a narror; ravine or
gully, with a line of hills front and
rear, covered with small, rocky
bowlders and bushes. They drive their
wagons in between these hills.
P"The women are placed in safety,
for it is a noticeable fact that very
large numbers of women have follow
ed their-husbands and brothers to the
war, not to act as viragoes, not to un
sex themselves, nor to handle the rifle,
but o nurse the wounded, to comfort
the dying and to lay out the dead. I
have heard them singing raund the
camp fires in the starlight, but it was
hymns that they sang, not ribald
songs. I have seen thom kneeling by
the side of men in the moonlight, but
not in wantonness, but in mercy, and
many a man who wears the British
-g ori to-day can bear me witness
ac I speak the truth.
"The foot scouts take up their posi
tions among the rocks and shrubs on
thc hills in front and rear o: the
laager. Each scout has his rifle in
his hand, his pipe in his teetLh, his
bandolier full of cartridges over his
shoulder and his scanty blanket un
'der his left arm. No fear of his sleep
ing at his post. He is fighting for
honor, not for pay; for home, not for
glory, and he knows that on his acute
ness the lives of all may (lepend. He
knows thit his comrades and the wo
men trust him, and he values the trust
as dearly as British soldiers ever did.
No matter ho*w tired he may be, no
matter how famished, the Boer senti

THE ARMORED TRAIN#
Is History, Mechanism and Field of Use.
The armored train is one of the in
strumentE of war that has received a
severe test in South Africa, and the
reconnoitring performed by these en
gines of modern warfare has served to
call mor- than passing attention to
t e -nbject. Credit has been given
to Admiral Fisher, of the British
navy, for the first use of the armored
train in actaai war, when, in 1882, he'
covered a locomotive with boiler plate
and equipped cars, similarly protect
ed, with field guns and put them to
effective practical use.
But the germ of this idea goes back
further than 1882. When the Ger
mans closed their vise-like grip upon
Paris the French made frequent sori
ties from the city, and in many of
these attacks they were assisted b :
field guns mounted on wagons an
carriages. Later they were mountet
on railroad cars, which were protect
ed in their vital points against the
enemy's guns. They could hardly bd
called armored trains such as havd
been used in South Africa, and
whether Admiral Fisher got his notion
of an armored train from the be
sieged Parisians is, therefore, an open
-'Since 1882 most of the military
Powers of Europe have been expert
menting with armored trains. Great
Britain, as if anxious to sustain her
reputation of first having invented th'
new instrument, has steadfastly iep4
the lead, and has now probably the
most complete and efficient armored,
trains in the world. The best that
the British army possesses is the en
gine and train of the First Sussex
Artillery Volunteers, and this is far
superior to the hastily constrnctet
trains that have previously been iii
service. The model train was made'
from special designs for war pur
poses. The protected engine carrie,
a Maxim gun, and the protected cars
have heavy field guns operated by
machinery, so that any part of the
surrounding country can quickly be
covered. Arrangements are made to,
compensate for the recoil, and also to.
give steadiness and stability to the.
cars. This latter is accomplished by:
an arrangement for clamping the
truck to the rails by strong screw
clips whenever the gun is fired.
There are also several steel plated
vans accompanying the train in which
horses and soldiers can be safely con
The armored train, it has been
stated, was never intended to be used
except in conjunction with cavalry,
and it was dne to lack of support of
mounted troo ps that several of the
disasters to the hastily constructed
trains in South Africa occurred. In
co-operation with a strong force of'
cavalry the armored train is a formidd
able weapon, but without the help of
mounted troops a small quantity of
dynamite wight be used to destroy
the roadbed in the rear and wreck.

cavalry support, however, this type of

achievements in South Africa, and in

The question of armored motor
cars which could travel over an or
dinary road or level stretch of conn
try has also received some attention
in the South African conflict. Several
cars were extemporized hurriedly for
this purpose, but they proved of little
'use in a rough country, and, as com
manders do not alwas choose a level
'space for their battles, the armored

Value of Color a Flowers
The colors of flowers are devices by
which insects are enabled to ald~
fertilize them. W it h t
visits many plants ra i d be unable to
~form seed, ai-a would cease to exist.
~The common red clover, for example,
if protectea from insects by nets, will
set no seed. Many gaps would thus
be formed, and the surviving species,
striving to occupy the vacant space,
would widely alter the present distri
bution of plants, and stimulate the
production of new forms. Further,
ni ithout colored flowers, the insects
that live on plant nectar could find no
food, and many species of bees, lbut
terflies and moths would die out. The
result of this extinction would be far
reaching both for gain and loss. We
might cease to obtain honey, but, on
the other hand, the depredations of
Liosts of ravenous grubs, the larvae of a
moths and butterflies, would come to
mn end, while such birds as are now 1
lependent for their food upon
these insects would perish. Far
-eaching, indeed, would be the effects
,roduced in the complex system of
iature by the loss of color in flowers..

Fruit For Breakfast.
Fruit of some kind-and under the
head of fruit all varieties of melons
and berries belong-should be on
every well-ordered breakfast table.
It is generally abundant in most sec
tions of the country, and its cost is
trifling when its healthfulness is taken
into-consideration. There is a dis
position, however, among housekeep
ers to use fruit-both cooked and un
cooked-on the tea or supper table,
and exclude it from the breakfast ta
ble, which seems contrary to the'best
hygienic knowledge of the subject.
The experience of our ancestors gave
them some tolerable correct opinions
in regard to diet, and the old proverb
in regard to fruit being "gold in the
morning, silver at noon and lead at
night" was formulated from practical
An Old-Fashioned Coffee Cake.
Following are directions for making
an old-fashioned coffee cake: Put one
and a half cupfuls of sugar and ono
cup of butter in a bowl and whip them
up to a cream; add two eggs, well
beaten, and blend them well with the
sugar and butter; next stir in one
cupful of New Orleans molasses, a
teaspoonful of powdered cloves andI
the same of ground cinnamon and
quarter of a grated nutinet. Dissolve
two teaspoonfuls of baking soda in a
cupful of cold coffee and stir it in
with the other ingredients; next stir
in gradually two cupfuls of flour
which has been sifted, then sprinkle
in a cupful cf seeded and chopped
raisins, stirring them well through
the mixfure; last of all stir in grada
ally two and a half cupfuls more of
flour and stir the whole till it is per
fectly smooth and free from lumps.
Butter well the inside of two medium
sized cake pans, then line them with
sheets of white paper well buttered;
divide the cake dough equally be
tween the two pans and bake in a
moderate oven until the cake cleaves
from the sides of the pan and will not
stick to a broom splint thrust through
the centre of the loaf. Let the cake
cool in the pan before turnin-e it qut.

New Process Which Is Said to Be Better
Than Cold Storage.
The Southern California Fruit Exe
change, with headquarters in Los
Angeles, has for some time been ex
perimenting wit?'a'n'w system of
preserving oranges while in process
of shipment. Last year, experiments
were made with good results, but the
matter was undertaken too late in the
season for anything definite to be de
termined. The question has been
taken up again this year, and, early
as the orange season is, the Fruit Ex
ehange is preparing to announce the
complete success in every particular
of its new system.
R. R. Snowden, of Los Angeles, is
the inventor, and the process con
sists in fumigating the oranges with
certain gases before shipment, in
order to kill the fungus which is the
cause of the decay.
Test shipments have been made
from Califorria to Kansas City
and, upon the arrival of the cars here,
it was found that of the natural frait
which was unioed - a'1d untreated
chemically, the decay was ten per
cent.; of the iced fruit two per cent.
was spiled; while of the portion that
was treated by this new process of
using gases, only one per cent. was
unfit for use. If to this be added the
fact the cost of the new treatment is
very much below that of using ice, as
is at present done, it can readily be
seen how vastly important is the new
invention. The cost of icing a car
load of oranges across the continent
is about $120, while it has been rough
ily estimated that $10 will cover the
cost of the chemical process.
L. H. Cochrane, of the firm of
W. G. Cochrane & Son, agents in this
city for the Southern California Fruit
Exchange, talked interestingty yes
terday of the new method. "There
is not the slightest room for doubt,"
he said, "that our new chemical pro

the use of ice, but the saving in cost
is tremendous. Just what the cost is
