Stem -Hotel That's Like a Ptpper Bex
Shells Stir the Correspocdtnts.
Modder Illvcr, Dec. 30. War lias as
many faces and places as Damo For
tuno herself. For weeks we of Lord
Mcthucn'a force were aptly described
as a flying column a flying and fight
ing column wo were, leaping north
ward, .and dealing blows right and left
as we coursed.
We were not sure of our meals In
those days; In fact; we were more
nearly certain1 of not getting them. Wo
en mo to a pauso after the light on the
Modder, but the fever was still on us,
and, presently, "up and at them" wa7
the cry, and wo fought the biggest bat
tle of all four at Magcrsfontcln.
Since then tho wind has gono out of
our sails, and wo wcro waiting for a
new supply In tho rooms of men and
munitions. Wo seemed to havo leased
this little watering-place from the Kim
bcrleyltcs, whoso retreat It used to be.
If wo used cards In tho army wo
would havo new ones printed with this
address, "Wo havo made ourselves at
home here." A market has been es
tablished for us, and we nro having
fresh eggs and gcnulno milk, new- Vege
tables and butter, to say nothing of
formal dinners to our generals and our
friends from other messes. Hooka are
coming Into camp, and we are reading'
and lending them around. Our horses
arc used only for afternoon rides, and
thero aro even men among us who fish
at times In the river which in other
respects has becomo a laundry and a
horse trough.whcrc the foot soldiers
wash their khaki and the troopers wa
ter their steeds..
Busy Days In Camp.
I would not risk giving any one the
Idea that we nro Idle. I bcllevo time
was that soldiers lounged nnd dawd
led a great deal henco tho term "so
jorlug" applied to a lazy mechanic who
avoids hard work. But thoso were not
even nineteenth century soldiers, and
here wo aro within a day of the twen
tieth century. No, wo truly think that
we are having an easy time, but the
term Is merely comparative. Tommy
has to take his turn at piquet duty
one night in four at trench digging,
at scouting, or patrol work it ho is a
mounted man. He has to cook and
wash, and undergo inspection, and be
up at daybreak, and look after his rifle
and accoutrements. And other 'hun
dreds of men keep army service stores
and deal out forage ana , rations,
clothes, boots,-putties, and do black
smithing,, horse-shoeing, harness
mending, carpentering, and I know' not
what all; while tho engineers build
trenches 'and bridges, mend culverts
and. tho railway roadbed, and put-In
order the tanks and windmills that
got communltcd fractures In the -last
great battle. In all the world there
aro not many trades as active -and
laborious as this satno "soldiering"
whlchonco boro a poor nickname.
Complete Picture of Peace.
Tho queer thing about us eher Is that
wo aro making- ourselves believe that
we're at rest; and our surroundings
help to strcngtchn the delusion. For
our surroundings form a complete pic
ture of peace they symbollzo calm and
leisure; they wear a Sabbath air ot
vlllago restfulness. Como to my quar
ters, which, happily, command the
whole camp, and by what you see you
shall understand my meaning. That
done, I will destroy your Impression,
for It is wholly false.. As tho sages
havo said In every tongue, "This world
Is all a seeming."
Tho men who report for tho Dally
Mall, the Times, neuter's, tho Morn
ing Post, Black and White, and one or
two other publications, have moved
their mulo trunks Into n queer little
mud-walled hotel on tho "Island"
whero the Modder marries the Itlet. I
am told this Is tho Bournemouth of Kim
berley, and that In other years tho
riverside trees havo sheltered mnny
tents and camps ot summer loiterers
from tho diamond fields, that tho Kim
berley belles and beaux have haunted
tho darkest corners of my stoep at
night, that tho music of violin and
piano and of dancing boots has tickled
the air of tho dining room, whllo tho
soberer men nave studied colored cards
and Jingled coins at tables In tho bed
rooms. I am afraid these folk would
not know tho placo this year any more 1
than 1 can Imaglno it as they havo t
Known it. a snarpnei sncii ourst in
tho dining room, another ventilated
the bedroom ot the Times, and a third
has made a new window in tho" wall of
Number 5. All tho walls aro rendered
like tho tops' ot so many popper pots
by Mauser bullet's, and In a storm It
always rains harder in tho hotel than
Howover, stand with me on my stoep.
The green trees ot tho riverside are
bathed In sunshine and trembling In a
soft breeze. They are so small that wo
can look over thorn to tho other trees
around tho store, the station, and the
Crown and Royal' hotel. The veldt
lies at one side, and, far away aro
many lines of tents, which ought, per
hapB, to suggest war, but yet manage
to Increase tho noto of rest and order,
quiet' and calm, which sweetly sounds
In everything else. The farthest ob
ject on tho veldt Is a ganger's hut on
tho railway1 to the left, and then tho
view closes with a soft rolling purple
lino of hills. The level yellow veldt,
the village umqng. the trees, the bril
liant -bluo 'sky with white clouds" lazily
