The de tails of General Do Wet's escape from the encircling British columns show that It was one of the boldest incidents of the war. When Haasbroek's command Joined De Wet, December 12, borne fifteen miles east of Thaba N'Chu. General Knox was only about an hour distant, und the Boer situa tion appeared desperate. But De Wet was equal to tho occasion. Dispatching Hais broek westward to make a feint at Victotia Nek. De Wet prepared' to break through the lfrittrh columns at Springhalt Nek Pa-.?, about four miles of broad, flat, unbroken ground. At the entrance were two forti fied posts, while artillery was ixted on a hill eastward, watching tho Boers. Suddenly a magnificent spectaclo was pre rented. The whole Boer urmy of 2,5011 men started at a gallop In open order through tho nek. President Styn and Pell Fourle led the chargo and Do Wet brought up tho rear. The British guns nnd rifles boomed and rattled Incessantly. The Boers first tried the eastward route; but, encountering artil lery, they diverged and galloped to the foot of the hill to the westward, whero the fire of only a single pot was eftecthe. The whole maneuver was a piece of mag nificent daring, nnd Its eucce-s was com plete. In suite of the loss of a fifteen-pounder and twenty-five nrlsoners.

A letter was read In eourt from the Rev erend Allison of Bristol. I'a. It was written in reply to the ono published from Cad-t Burnett, president of tho Y. M. C. A , at Jho academy. Doctor AIII-on f.is that Booz was not a man to read noels hMdin in a Bible. Nothing adduced ln tho evidence to-duy showed that thero was uny brutal hazing practiced at tho academy, and the trend of tho eiidcnco went to show that neither Booz nor Breth were possessed of the ,icc3 sarv mental cnpicity to go through tho entire course of studies necessary for grad uation.

Cadet IVank Kellar, who had the light with Booz. said: "I was chosen by a commlt.e of my class to 'call ouf Cadet Hooz because he dis obeyed the orders of the corporal of the guard nnd made insolent i marks to an upper-class man. I was told to weigh In and I turned 17) pounds. Booz w.us 152 pound. He was taller than I and had a longer reach. "Wo stripped to the waist." continued th" witness, "and my seconds told me I had a tough customer to meet, and they told me to do my best. For the first thirty seconds after tho call of time Booz showed a HttP; light, as he struck me a couple of times about tho shoulders. I struck lilm under tho left eye. cutting It slightly. After this ho turned ills back and kept running awav. I freqm ntly told him to face me or I woui.l hit him in the back. I did hit him a couplo of tirms under the right arm. "In the second round 1 thought he was going to put up a light after all, but h immediately began running ng.rn. I struck him in tho right ejo and then on tho stom ach.

"Had jou any right," nkcd General Brooks, -to die him any such instruc tions?' "No. not officially," replied the witness. But I flt I had a right to gho some In formation to him when he was doing wrong." "Was it not a breach of milltarv discipline for uu to speak to a sentry on .iuty7' It was." "And ns a result of that Mr. Booz was called out to fight?" "Yes. sir." '"rllP. fir. you had no right to put Cndt Booz In that position." said General Rirukj sharply. Cadet GeorgoR.
