CHAPTER XXII. Tbt aky waa not clear when tht great it.irm borat ; It waa thickly overcast, dark and troubled. Tht aigna of what to m wert there, if only they could have been rightly interprets. II ii l tlx jr aere hung out in vain, foot Wily laughed to arorn, pervtraely mlt miilcrdood, pridefully floated nd die regarded. The rloudt wert dark, it wat true, but rloudt tcjually dark had gathered before and paaatd quietly away without breaking lu tempeet. There waa no canae fur alarm or extraordinary pre caution. It aeenit incrediblo now that men ahould have bein to blind and Improv ident. It waa natural enough to mlaUk tht beginning of imurrection for tht final fling of a paaaing Irritation at tn un popular tai. Tht wleett of ua might have mailt tht tame blunder before tht event. That tht poll Ul, tht tiibaldy nl three groata, at it waa railed, ahould be unpopular wat not at all tnrprlalng or abnormal. It waa only what might have been expected. No new tax aver la popular, "it it a romnmn nrage," "aye the quaint tranalator of Froiaeart; "none ia gladda to pay or to opyn their puraea if they may lette it." Many re futed outright to pay tht Jamiaiy In itnlluittnt of tht tax. Tht government inferred tlili naturally enough to tht ordinary motive, repugnant to open the purat, a repugnance especially Irnng when the iniMwt it ol a new kind. They did not aee-and we ran not (airly hold thetu foollah above the ordinary run ol government! for not awing that it waa not the wuight nf Hi in particular impoat tn Ittelf that the peopio folt; that thit Impoat waa the lant atraw that made the mini of their Imrdena intolerable, and thua became a aymlxil agaltmt which wat directed all the puut-npand aocmuulated hatred ol long aeriea of yeart of auffering. They failed to tea thie, and they failed even to ace until too late the advantage that they gava tn the leader of the diacontented peeaantt in providing them with a grievance that was com mon, however alight, and thua ftirniah Ing a rallying cry, tht font of which could lit felt by all. the payment of tht January install ment waa alack, but tht ruling powera oppoitnd a firm front to thla, expecting the rcaiatance to collapae, at It had col pied before, when - a tolitl body of organ lied men waa opposed to loone, incoherent aaaemblaget of reluctant loma. A pertain period of grace waa allowed, and then the collootora pro tt'fidt'd to diatraln. Hut tht front of the reaititanct waa alto Arm. Tht hnrlff'a officera wert reaiatod.

I -eg afttrwarda fell a victim to the blind fury of the populace, but thla waa owing to bia official poattlon and not to any apeciflc act ol ruffiaiiiam.) Ieg waa aunt down to Ihartford to hear appeal. Among the appcala wat one on behalf of a daughter of Wat Tyler, for bmei emption waa claimed aa being under age. The frightened girl waa dragged into court bv the collector, and groealy imtulted !elore the excited tudieuce. Tht Inatilent ruffian had not long to wait for hit punUhment. The girl'a father waa at work on the roof of a neightor ing houae, and tome one ran at one and told him. Tyler caught up a halving-hammer, and hurried, boiling with rage, to call tht collector to account. The collector "answered with atout won! a," and (truck at him, whereupon the tiler, avoiding the blow, rained hla hammer and aniote the collector with auch forct that "the braina flew out of hi head."

It waa a eerloua duflance of the law, but the authorities at headquartera wert not yet aerioufly alarmed.

Be this aa it iurv, within a wink ! the alleged oc currence, Wat Tyler waa threatening tht capital with one hundred thousand men at bia back, and in every county of Kngland local leadera were dictating terma to tne mm himmi mn name.

That tht leadera ahould have been able to rain to hugt a gathering of armed men ia oiionatimt ay much for tht per lection ol their organization, and that having raised inch undisciplined and angry swarma, they were able to keep anger within fixed boundt, ia evidence of a power of command not eay to parallel. By Monday the leadera were eble to go to work at Canterbury. The contingent they had brought from Dart- loru, and the town and village along their route, aa reinforced by levies from all the west of Kent, from Tbantt tna w mutable to Komney Marab More live might have been lost if au inority naa noi been o taken by sur prise, panic-stricken, and robbed of all power ol reaiHtance. jueir outmost at Canterbury wa. toon dispatched. The gates were open ed by the inhabitants, and a rush waa made at once for tht houaea of tht high collector lor tht county and tht aheriff Their Uvea were sred on condition that they surrender their documents the instrument of the obnoxiou. tax. Fire, were lighted, and the pea anta looked on, and cheered and hooted with frantic joy as aubsidy roll a and green wax writ, parchment after parchment, waa drawn from their boxes, pitched into tht flame and burned to ashaa. Beyond this demonstration oi wrath against tht poll tax very little damage was done, amazingly little considering the amount of turbulent rascality that might have found its chanre in tuch a commotion. It ii a significant fact that the shrine ol Kt. Thomas, en' rlched with the offering! of thousands of pilgrim, wat left untouched. If tht motive of leadera capable of organix ing Insurrection on such a Kale had been personal ambition, they would not have failed to twine upon such a treas ure to provide themeelvea with tht alnaws of war. Few of Edward'a knights, accustomed to the plundering habits of tbe time, could have resisted the temptation The capture of Canterbury waa an audacious act, but one still more au dacious wa to follow. London wa. their next object. The advance on Ixmdon showed tbt tamt Judgment and strategic skill that marked all tbe proceedings ol tht in surgent! tilt the death of Tyler. It was not without reason that Walaing ham, an unwilling witness, described him aa "magno eenau prueditus, There were two points at which tht movement of tuch a horde aa tbt in surgent peasants might easily have been checked. Rochester and Maid- atone. Both wert seized without lost of time. While Straw crossed the river to gather and lead the men of Essex towards the capital, the Kentish in surgents loft Canterbury early on Tuet- day morning in two divisions, one go ing towards Maidstone, and toe otner towards Rochester. The fortresaei of both places were in their posFewion be lore niaht. Theu bath divisions moved forward on London, their numbers growing at every mile. For such a mob the order liness of it behavior was marvolloua. Manor houses were broken open, and com t rolls, the register of servitude, were burned ; but lives were spared, and property, except in aerfs, wai re spected. The leaders of the insurgents seem to have exhorted them aa claim ants for Justice to thow respect for or der, and to have enforced their exhort ations by making summary example of transgressors. Frobably fewer out rage! were perpetrated by the peasant mob than by any body of tho alng'a force, on their way to the sea coast.

The appearance of General De Wet at tbe camp at Wynburg waa the signal for a great display of enthusiasm. When he arrived at camp General De Wet was at once surrounded by thousands of Boer men, women and children, who clam ored and struggled to shake the hand of their hero. He warmly applauded the staunch support that the women had given the burghers during the war, which he said bad greatly encouraged the men in the field.
