T IS 110 less a surprise to the uninitiated tbat the liters liavo a real i:c:icrnl than that they have n array as well ns tha sub lime audacity to beard the Brit ish lion In the full panoply of his martial pow er. Tho affairs at Lalngsnek and Majuba nil), whero the Brit ish (ell down in 1831, were not military accidents, as tho defeated sldo uotilil have tho world believe. Tho English troops went Into It then expecting to scatter a rabble. They met Cicncral Plet Joubert and his Boer riflemen, who outgeneraled and outf ought them, and the scattering was all on tlioli' own side. Wlso old Gladstono saw after Mnjti ba IIIU that It would cost llugland more to conquer tho Boers than nil the tax revenue from tho Transvaal would nmount to In 100 years, so ho called oH the army nnd spared England the Im pending shamo of defeat and an ap palling death rolL When it comes to the supreme clinch, all depends upon the man behind the gun, but the man behind the army regulates the clinch; benco It Is of first Importance to hae a general. Later biographies of Gen eral Joubert, tho directing mind of the South African force In tho remaiKablo first, blows at Britain's power, e.ill him an American. It is said that lie rcrrcd under Dupont early In the clll nnr and afterward commanded a company of colored troops. But If Joubert was a civilian -general to begin with that is no reason why great things should not be looked for In campaigns directed by him. One of the, cleverest strategists as well as hardost lighters of tho Confederate army was the civilian Forrest. With seldom more than 6,000 men he balked Federal armies and ruined campaigns. Joubert need do no more than that against the British and still show genius and perhaps win tho day with out a great battle. Names are Immaterial, and If it was not generalship it was something akin to It ulilcli Joubeit displayed when ho beat the British and won Boer liule pcudencu In 1SJS1. tt was a rapid, litis tiles csmpaign of'but few week?, but the British lost at cveiy point. There were good chauces for blundering, but only the Eugllsh took advantage of them. T'hfy blundered everywhere Joubeit inndo no mistakes. In the veiy llrst engagement, Brontc hoirt tSprult, tho Biltish, numbering SCI trained men from tho gurrison, weio met In tho open by au equal num ber of Boers, who disputed their inarch tonard l'retorla. Considering the length of the engagement, an appall ing number of British were killed and wauuded and tho rest captured. It was a plain euso of annihilating an tinned force. The strategy for the Boers In 1SS1 consisted In cutting off or Isolating the ISrHl.h gaulsous In tho Tittnsvii.il nnd keeping the outsido troops beyond tho border. Both ends weio uccompllshcd with nuirvelously little loss to tho Boers. As in 1 800 so in 1881 General Joubert looked llrst to the occupation of I.alngsuelt, a tableland nci0s-s which runs tho road from Natal Inti tho Transvaal. Oenoral Blr (ieu ,c Col ley was advancing from Natal id tho Nek wlfh 1,000 British tioopi Tho road at that point passes between Majuba Hill and uuother height '.',000 feet from Majulm. Joubert's men Hero posted upon both hills, and General Uollcy advanced to the attack In broad daylight. He struck at Joubert's left, on the secondary height, thinking that If he carried It he would command the pars. Two detachments were assigned to the work, one to attack the height and the otuor u ildgo continuing from it. The British general supposed tbat the double attack would divide tho Boers and that his columns could keep In touch and win an easy victory. Hut this was what happened: .loubert smashed the column, consisting of cav alry, which attacked the height, In a twinkling, hurling It back lu a panic upon the Infautry which was to make the supporting attack on the il'lge. The Boers wcro not hurt at nil and con centrated tbclr file ipon tho British Infantry, which asrehed up tho slope In gallant order. The British gained the crest, where, exhausted by their ga HaiHIIiliii,.- ey roba confinement of all pain and danger, and SlaS,!f.B0,.f"' nd CM?

Had the Boers rushed after the retreat ing cavalry, following up to the Arm lines of Infantry, there would liavo been a stand up light In tho open, in which failure on the part of the Boers would hare been fatal. But Joubert Itclil them In and mado the English waste their strength in climbing the bill under Ore. After Lnlngsnelc the situation was much the same as It has been In this war. General Colley held on at the Nek awaiting re-enforcements. His communications with the bask In Natal wero open to Boer ra'Sers, and he marched back with COO ,ops to patrol the road and keep It cv-n for tmsplles and support to reach blm. TSie Inge- no river was a critical poly, and tho urltlsn marshaled therein full strength. Before they could prepare for defenso Joubert attacked with vigor, and tho battle lasted until night closed In. Un der cover of datLness General Colley retreated, leaving his dead and heln sssslly wounded to tho mercy of Jou bert The casualties In the three fights at Bronkuorst Spruit, Lalngsnek nnd Ingogo Itivcr show on which side tho generalship lay. The British loss foot ed up 230 killed and 350 wounded against IT killed and 35 wounded In the Boer ranks. In view of the British and Boer ofilclnl returns up to tho close of tho hardest fighting before Lady smith, thefco figures are significant. The battle losses of the British In Octo ber wcro fully 1,100 killed and wound ed according to reports filed In Lon don. The reports from Pretoria show DO Boers killed and 200 wounded. In tho long run the palm of generalship lies with the leader who gets tho lar gest return on the smallest Investment. Joubert shut his enemies up at all points with a loss of one to four In battle. At Majuba Hill Joubert was outgen eraled at the start, but recovered his grip with remarkable celerity and vigor. Tho British took advontngo of tba trusting nature of the Boers nnd stretched tho moral law. -There -was a truce on, and proposal for peaceful settlement bad been sent Into tho Boer lines. Through nofault of President Kruger answer was delayed beyond tho hour named, but General Joubert is a man of peace when possible, and, believing In tho good faith of General Colley, ho massed his troops In camp, leaving Maiubn Hill unoccupied. Gen eral Colley climbed to the summit In tho night with a strong forco nnd at daybreak looked down upon tho Boers In the plain below. Tho hill on the sldo of the Boers was rocky and pre cipitous, and tho situation was like that at Little Bound Top, Gettysburg, only worse for the Boers. Tho Con federates at Gettysburg had a better chance to drive the Federals from tho key to the Held than had Joubert to get .Majuba IIIU from the British. But the day was lost to tho budding Trans vaal republic unless Joubert retook the hill at once. Nerve is a sine qua lion for u general on the field, and that Joubert displayed on tho Instant at Majuba Hill when he saw the British flag flying from the summit. Thcro was no way of getting n column to mount the rucky face of tho hill. But tho Boers arc as sprightly ns tho cham ois of the Alps, and Joubeit ordered them to climb that hill to tho cover of the brink And from thero open on the enemy. What could bo accomplish ed at long rango was done, and the British found that the hill was safer at n distance from the brink than it was close to the edge, where the Boers could be watched, so tbey fell back to safe positions and loft tho Boers to woik unseen. Suddenly hundreds of Boer rifles opened on tho British from points of vantage on the summit. Although tho British were sheltered by rocks and tldgcs of earth, the bullets struck home, and Genernl CoIIey's men began to grow shaky without so much as see ing an enemy. A British chnrgo was proposed, but General Colley thought best to wait until tho Boers got eicltcil and rushod from cover. But when that time came It was .too late for the 'Brit ish. Tho Boer ruth was n tide not to bo stemmed, nnd so Majuba Hill stands as a monument to tho martial gonrus of General Plot Joubert and a freedom giving victory. Even If Joubert Is not an American product ho Is known to many Ameri cans, for ho visited this country In lbDO. One of the stories told at a re ception given blm by the Holland soci ety In Now Vork Illustrates bis charac ter, When the leaders came together after Majuba IIIU to sign a treaty of pence, tho British leader said to Jou bert: "1 never expected to mako peace with you, Blr."

WAR'S AWFUL CARNAGE, DEPICTED BY STARTLING FIGURES. War Was Pcndlttat In the Daya of Club and Spear Terrlblo Strnsslca With the Smoothbore Mnaket and llaronet Loaaea lu the CUU War, ICopyrlEht, 1SS9, by O. U Kilmer. uAc may be called tho blood iest battle? Is that tho bloodi est whero the aggregato of vic tims of blood letting is great est or where tho percentage of victims to the total number en gaged Is great est? It Is In tho last case that a man takes the most chances. Soldiers comfort themselves on going Into bottle with the thought that nt the worst they have nine chances out of ten in favor of escape from bullets. But It Is not necessary to go further than oar chll war to find many battles where the In dividual had but four chances out of Ave. It "really depends upon what Is con sidered real warfare, this matter of bloody battling. Some battles are sim ply slaughters. At Marathon 10,000 Athenians killed 0,000 Persians out right on the field and lost but 102 in their own ranks. Armlnlus, on the banks of the Llppe, slaughtered the legions of Crcsnr, leaving a legacy of horrible names holding to this day, llko "Bono Lane," "Bono Brook" nnd "Slnughtcr Kettle," a valley. It was this frightful event which led Cmsar to wall, addressing tho vanquished gen eral, "Bring back my legions, Varus!" Out of the 00,000 Normans led to vic tory at Hastings by William the Con queror 1C.000 were killed, and at Blen heim, field of "famous victory," whero Louis XIV staked tho prize of univer sal dominion, tho vanquished French lost 12,000 killed, while Marlborough lost but COOO. These examples nre taken from tho days of battleax and club and spear. Since the introduction of gunpowder as a factor in warfare records have cither been better kept or more sought after, nnd a fairly good average of percent ages may bo given to support tho claim of any battle for honors In ghastllnets. In tho seven greatest battles of the sev enteenth century, when the masses car ried muskets and pikes, the average casualties were 20 per cent, so that each man stood but four chances In Ave of escape. Tho figures given for casualties may Include prisoners, but In those days heavy surrenders were not common. The exceptionally bloody battles of the period wore Lutieri, 1032; Bocroy, 1043, and Scneffe, 1074. At Lutzen 31,000 Imperialists lost T,00u, and 20,000 Swedes lost 11,000, a total of 18.000 out of 01,000, or 35 per cent. At Itocroy 22,000 French lost 4,000, whllo 27,000 Spaniards lost 13,000, be ing totally defeated by the great Con de. At Senarre, Belgium, In a battle between 00,000 Dutch allies and 48,000 French under Condo tho total losses wero 87,000, or 34 por cent. In this period belongs Marston Moor, where tho casualties, all told, wero 7,C00. The civilians said that tbey burled 4,000 bodies on the field. Lut icn was a victory for Qu6tavus Adol phus over tho great Walleusteln, but he was killed, and one of his leglments, called tho "Yellows," lay dead on tho ground In tho order where they had stood In fighting. Wallenstcln left 0,000 dead on tho field, half of the 18, 000 casualties of tho day. At Bocroy out of 18,000 Infantry the dofoatcd Spaniards lost 0,000 killed In tho ranks. "How many of you wcro thoro before the battle?" a French ofUcor askod a Spaniard. "Yon bavo only to count our dead and prisoners." In the middle of the seventeenth cen tury the bayonet superseded the plko. Theio were 23 great battles fought with tho smoothbore musket and bayonet from Fontenoy, 1745, to Wa terloo, 1810. .Napoleon's loss at Wa terloo has never been officially com puted, but the estimates adopted make tho loss 31 per cent. Including prison ers. Borodino, 1812, was long consid ered tho bloodiest battle of modern times, tho loss being apparently 80 per cent, nut it nas neen, shown that the figures nro deceptive The average of the period of smoothbore and bayonet was about 20 per cent In tho 23 great battles. Prisoners are often Included "Doctors failed to reaoli my .case and advised me to try a higher air." There Is no greater Irony than a recom mendation of change of climate lo thow whose circumstances make change o( climate Impossible. How many a suf ferer in such a case, has wistfully watched the flight of the south-seeking bird, and cried with the Psalmist, " Oh that I lud wings." Hut suppose you can fit the lungs to the climate instead of fitting the climate to the lung. That is uhat lias been found possible by tho who liac used Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis covery. It so purifies the blood, remov ing the clogged and poisonous condition favorable to fliseasc, that the whole body is strciiEthcncd4 With new strength comes new power, and disease is resisted and thrown off. There is no alcohol, whisky or other intoxicant contained in Dr. Pierce's Discovery. "I feet that I owe'a debt of gratitude to ou for preparing such grand reratdiei, for chronic diseases especially, which the doctors failed lo reach,' writes I, D. Staples, Usq , of Jjarclay, Osage Co . Kans, " 1 am a. railroad aaent, and four j ears a?o my wort kceplnir rat In a warm room and stepping out frequently Into the cold air gave me bronchitis, which became chronic and deep seated Doctor filled to reach ray case and advised me to try a higher air, but, for tunately for me, a friend also advised me to try Dr. lierce's medicines. 1 commenced ULImr j-our '(iolden Medical Discovery,' ami by the time 1 had taken the flrst bottle I was better, and after taking (about four bottles my cough was entirely gone. This was a jcar ago tast winter and again last winter I took ubout three bottles to prevent a return ot the trouble 1 have found no necessity for seeking another climate." Dr. Pierce's Pleasant'Pellcts are power ful aids to the cleansing of the clogged system. By all dealers in medicine. In tho casualties of that period: but taking those where the percentages equal the exceptional percentages of the civil war, 12 out of the 23 were ai bloody as the bloodiest of tho era of the muzzlo loading rifle barrel, which held until the Franco-Prussian war. At Kolln, 1757, 01,000 Aiistrlnns and Prussians struggled with a loss of 20 per cent. At Zorndoif, 1758, 82,000 Prussians nnd Austrians fought with a loss of 40 per cent, Including prison ers. At Slllery Wood, 1700, the Eng lish and French, numbering but 0,000, lost 33 per cent. At Mnrengo 00,000 French and Austrians struggled all day with varying fortunes and lost 23 per cent. IJllau, 1807, was n battle whero tho figures arc quite authentic. There wcro 80,000 French against 75, 000 Russians, and the total loss 2G por cent. Tho battle was probably as bloody as any In historic times, Marshal Atlgercau charged with 10,000 men, and but 1,000 ever returned to duty. A sudden snowstorm blinded his path, but the Busslan cannon had been trained on the field and mowed bis ranks with awful slaughter. After the destruction of Augcrcau tho snow storm abated, and Napoleon sent in Murnt with 70 mounted squadrons of 14,000 ssAierw Murat scattered the Russian Infantry, but the Itusslan mounted reserve fell upon him nt the supreme moment, and after a combat ofHifconrfivbtsjl!4tupiiess hji wn3 compelled tq lptlrp. tS(ill the French struggletLon,and at nlgbtfnll tun Rus sians left the field. In Ills bulletin homo Napoledn said, "The spectaclo Is sufficient to luspiro princes with tlie"lovc of peace nnd horror of war." At Albuera, 1811, the l'reneh and tho English nnd Spanish lost 15,000 out of 03,000 combatants, about 27 per cent. A French cstimato of Borodino, 1812, when Napoleon opened the road to Moscow, places the loss of 205,000 men at 00,000 killed and wounded, about 10 per ceut. ' Leipslc, fought in 1813, Is called tho battle of the nations. Napoleon's loss Is placed at 50,000 out of 175,000 nnd that of tho allies 47,000 out of 200,000. Napoleon fought to save his army, and bis men stood in their Hacks uutll cut down, whllo the allies rushed forward until cut down. The loss Mas 21 per cent. At Kunersdorf, 1759, 00,000 Aus trlans and Russians fought 40,000 Prussians, with a combined loss of 37,000, nbout 29 per cent. Tho losses at Bunker Hill, 1775, were 24 per cent. At Friedlnnd, 1807, 80,000 French fought 05,000 Russians, with a combin ed loss of 27,000. Mere figures, however large, do not suggest the sanguinary features of n battle, and tho mind Is more strongly impressed by tho description of some bloody episode tl.an with figures that suggest wholesale slaughter.

"Walt till you sco tho whites of the eyci of the Britishers, and then fife at their waistbands!" At Btono Hirer tho Confederates rolled the Federal Una up from left to right. Tho battlo was mainly fought In dense thickets. Had Napoleon lost Marengo ho would have lost his army, for It was Isolated In tho enemy's country. At C o'clock In tho afternoon tho day was lost, but ho turned the tide by the most fright ful eacrllleo of his best troops. Cblckamauga was a field wbcro tho battlo waged fiercely around ono point. In defending the road for retreat on the Federal left Thomas won fame as tho "Rock of Cblckamauga," and there the assailants plied their fallen tho thickest. Thcro the defenders died In tbclr tracks. Antietam left behind Its "Bloody Lane," piled with dead; Its "Sunken Bond," Its "Cornfield," where tho fall en lay In rows, wltb their dead leaders In position Just in tho ndtance. The loss of 20,000 killed and wounded took place between daylight and noon. The field of Shlloh was fought over In de tail twice. The bloodiest spot was the "Hornets' Nest," where tho Con federate leader, A. Sidney Johnston, was -killed. Cold Harbor was but half as bloody as Bhlloh In percentages, yet there were regiments thero which lost half their numbers In n single dash. Fredericksburg bad Its slaughter pen at the famous stone wall, which was stormed again and ngaln, each line apparently spurred with tho desire to leave Its dead a little nearer the barrier than Its predecessors.
