Mrs. Martha Van dcr Valk. wife of Itev. Dr. Marchonus H. A an der Valk, was a Kest at 314 Hud. ton Street, Hoboken. last Ueck. She re ceived much social attention fiom promi nent residents of that citj She had just returned from the Transvaal, where during four jesrs she, her husband, and two children had formed part of the household of Tresident Kruger. She talked interestingly, hefore she left for Mupkegon, xesarding her experiences in President Kruger's home. "One of the marked traits of the great Boer leader is his hospitality," she said. "My husband, children, and myself have had prcat proof of this. We went fiom Delft. Holland, at the invitation of President Kruger eaily in 1S?G. lie had been a personal friend of my husband's father, and he invited mr husband to become tutor to his three children to fin ish their education. "When c arrived at Durban we were met by two officers of the Piesl dent's armj". who had been delegated by him to escort us to his home. He and hl wife were at the railroad station tit Pre toria to meet us when the train arrived. He almost embraced my husband, and gave me and my children a ivarm welcome. "We were charmed by bis cheery, "Sam ple manner, absolutely free from all os tentation. The cairiage he led us towns an ordinary landau. Theie was only the driver on the box, and he wore a very simple livery. When we arrived at tro Piesidential mansian we found a sub stantial supper awaiting u?. Ths home of the President is just as unpretentious as his own clothing and manner of lire. It reminds one much of the villas one sees at Xew Rochelle, cr along the Xew Jersey coast. "We found -that a wing of this house had been reserved for our use, and we discov ered In it evidence that iniicb thought and care had been bestowed on our comfort. Our supposed tastes In litoratuic, for in stance, had evidently been closely consid ered, for we found books there that my husband knew were read often by his fa ther.

Pa j religious instruction from their father Neer hae I Fpent so pleasant a four jcas as when I was a member of President Kru ger's household. We found him alwas the same whole-souled man, a real man among men. "He has no housekeeper, except his wife He could not have a better one, by the way She is the typical careful, thrifty, cleanly Dutch housewife. She oveisees the kitch en and the marketing and keeps few &er ants. Although the Krugers are wealthy, there is no waste anywhere about their house. They give lavishly to the poor Indeed, I cannot, say enough about their charity. The family are really fairly idol ized by their neighbors and by residents of Pretoria. Rich and poor are proud of them "President Kruger Is extremely punctil ious in regard to religious services Be fore each meal there is a short ceremony, and immediately after breakfast come fam ily pracr5 and a short sermon by him to his little household. Frequently neighbors come in to participate in these family piaycrs. "The President aims to act absolutely according to the dictates of his conscience, as he believes God wants him to act. My husband and I. knowing him as well as we do, can see in eery move made by him during the present war evidences that he is directing its conduct from religions mo tives. That is the chief reason why I do not believe the British will defeat the Boers, even though they have a hundred soldiers to the Boers.' one. "Paul Kruger, by the way, conducts his armies with the same absence of show and formality that he does his household. He is the most approachable man imaginable. He deprecates any bowing or scraping to him. He wants to be treated just as ono gentleman treats another. He despises any one who cringes. "President Kruger, or Paul, as h pre fers to be called by his friends, has but one ambition in life. That is, to lead his people into independence and freedom and enable them to live a life of simplicity in the ic-ar of God and doing reverence to Him." . SOCIAL AND PERSONAL.
