A TRUE PEN PICTURE Tlio Frmilileitt of llio Transvaal Im Several i urfirH Over ftlx Poet nnd Unlit I<lkon Ufitut?Fall or Kolur? nl Crnriliitins?A Thorn to Kny land's Ktmouien for Years? 811? I'nmlly ?ml Hume. The writer has been much with Oom Paul Kruger. What is here written Is gathered wholly from personal experi? ences, or what the President of the Transvaal has told me, says John E. Owens in the Washington Star. "First, pray God for guidance and inspiration, then fight." This is his motto. Imagine yourself standing in the pres? ence of a man about six feet three inches In height, somewhat stoop shouldered and built like a giant; his hair white with years; his features homely and coarse, wearing an 111 flttlng black double-breasted Prince Albert coat reaching below the knees; such a man Is Oom Paul. Void of book learning, apparently not talented above the average man, armed only with his natural craftiness, he has been a thorn in the side of the greatest diplomatists and statesmen in England for twenty years. He was born on October 10, 1S25, near the present town of Graff Reluct, Cape Colony. His parents were South Afri? can farmers, who had loft their home In Europe a few years before Paul was born, hoping for good fortune In the new country. Rut it did not come. They remained mere squatters, and at the time Paul was born his parents owned only two or three slaves, which meant little. The future President of the Transvaal was chistencd S. J. Paul Kruger, but at an early ago the first two Initials were dropped. He uses them now when signing State papers. A FINE RIFLEMAN. Paul was taught at an early age to pray and handle a gun. At 7 years of age ho was the best shot in that sec? tion. He was n fearless boy. When he was !> years old his parents resented British regulations nnd .moved to the northeastern part of Natal colony, not far from Ladysmilb, the first Import-' ant strategic point in this war. Th'ere were two children In the fam? ily, a girl and a boy, both younger titan Paul. The brother was killed In a native light in the Natal colony nnd the sister lived to ?eo her brother made President of the Transvaal. When Kr?ger was about 17 years of ago his father, sister and he wont with I):.; bullock team some distance Into the Orange Free State. The senior Kru? ger was forced to remain, and told Paul to take the team home and to look arter Iiis sister. "I'll take care of .her, father," was the reply. Everything went well until Paul nnd his sister were about five miles from home. Then a panther appeared in lho road. The sixteen bullocks in the team took fright and ran away. The Jolting of the crude wagon throw the sister from the scat into the roadway, where sho was completely at the .mercy of the panther. Paul. at once realized her danger, and though he was unarmed run to her rescue. The panther by this time stood with gleaming eyes over the girl. Paul tackled the panther In u hand-to-hand battle. It was a fierce, struggle, and as Kruger himself told me, he believed once or twice that the panther was going to prove too much for him. But finally he got a hold of the animal's throat and literully choked the creature to death, with the grit of a bulldog Kruger held his grasp on the panther's throat and only released It when the animal gave up Its strug? gle in death. FIRST MEETING WITH KRUGER. It was the latter part of 1S79 that I first had the pleasure of meeting Paul Kruger. He was then a man over llfty years of age, but as strong, erect and robust as the average man of thlrty flvo. He seemed to possess the strength of a giant. The Boers at that time were on the verge of a war with the British, When I was introduced to Kruger he wns suspicious or me, and'it was only when assured that I was an American that he became at all talkative. In those days Kruger would talk English, but since the visit of Sir Henry Lock to Pretoria In 1S93, the Transvaal Pres? ident.has positively refused to utter one word of English. The Kruger of 1S7!) \vn? n poor man, ho had difficulty In supplying his fnmily with the necessi? ties or life for, besides his wife, he had ten children to care for. He lived then] In a humble farmhouse, but he left the j farm to care for Itself, for he hnd nl more Important matter to attend In? the creation of a revolution against the j English. Gen. P. J. Joubert, the now j commander of the Boer force's, nnd1 vieo-President of the Transvaal, young Pretorltis, son of the country's iiiv*t President, and Kruger were planning for the Boer uprising, which came the following year, resulting in the inde-j pendence of the Boers In 3SSI. It was these ibree that managed the campaign against the English forces under Gen-J oral Copley at Majnhn Hill. The next time that T me; Kruger was' In 1SJI1. A-ltholigh he was now the Pres? ident of (lie nation, and reputed to be worth $?,000,000', I found him as simple and ns'democratic no he was in the days of 1S70. when he woo unknown t'> fame and hail hard work (o support his family. It was 'on tbi* occasion that I realised the groaj qualities of ibis man, He cordially Incited me to become hin guest during the' short time that T wasi to remain In Pretorl'. an invitation \vh'ich I readily accepted. He would: not talk English lo me on this occasion, ] ad T bail tn carry on my conversation^ with bint thronen other members of the family. IIE LOVES AMERICANS. The old President never tired of talk* lug about the United Stales, designat? ing this republic as his. big brother, and wishing that he were in a position to make a treaty with America In order that he might favor our merchants in. trade. "I can trust Americans," he,would say, "for I know that they do not want my country." Before I left his residence he said to me through his secretary: "When you go home to the United States tell the people there for me that there Is a small nation here, loving their country and their liberty, and idolizing the American flag and the free Institutions of your country. May the United States ever prosper and remain true to the principles established by her founders Is my earnest wish." As he finished talking a tear was seen running down the old mun's check. He often talked of the days when he drove his father's old bullock team, and now prides himself on the fact that he Is still able to crack a thirty-foot whip over sixteen bullocks. It would be impossible to find a man who Is a better judge of human nature than Kruger. His likes und dislikes are spontaneous with him, und it generally turns out that his first impression is a correct one. He scrutinized mo when I was a stranger to a degree that was embarrassing, as he does all Britishers. If there is anything about a person which moots with the old President's disapproval his secretary is told to close the interview. The homo life of Kruger is the most charming Imaginable. What Is here written of It Is from my own expert* once. Kruger Is devoted to his wife, children, grandchildren and great? grandchildren; while they, In turn, adore him. Ho lives In n. modest house, which sits back from the sidewalk about fifteen feet. There Is a grassplot In front and a sentry box inside of the Iron railing. This house was presented to him by a syndicate. When the Volks? rand Is In session a soldier is stationed in front of the President's house, nnd no one, excepting otlicials. Is permitted to enter the residence during/the day. unless the secretary authorizes the sen? try to pass some especial person. Aflcr 7 o'clock In the evening, however, all arc welcome to the Chief Executive's home. Every morning at C o'clock a negro servant takes a cup of black coffee and a big pipe fdled with tobacco to the President's room. As soon as ho has drunk the coffee Kruger rises and smokes the pipe while ho is dressing. He Is downstairs by 6:30 o'clock, and is ready to lead the family prayers at 7 o'clock. Breakfast is served about 7:30 a. m. His morning hours are taken up with matters of state and the dictating of letters. The dinner hour is 1 o'clock. At nil meals Kruger says grace before bread Is broken. He takes a short nap afler the noon meal, and is reudy promptly at 3 o'clock In the aflcrnoon to receive callers. The supper is served at G o'clock, nnd the conclusion of this repast ends all the -worriment of the day for Kruger. Many writers have told how hot cups of thick, black cof? fee are served at frequent Intervals. Every person received is served with coffee. Besides his salary of $40,000 a year. Kruger is also allowed $10,000 an? nually for coffee money. There is a two-gallon kettle of coffee always hot In tho kitchen. Mrs. Kruger Informed me that she has known the servants to serve over thirty gallons of 'coilee In one day. Kruger drinks large quanti? ties of It. Most of his day is spent In the front pnrlor. He always has a big cuspidor at his feet nnd a pouch of Transvaal tobacco nnd a pipe by his side. HIS COUNTRY SAVED BY GOLD. Since Oom Paul was elected President in 1SS1 he has been confronted with some trying times. In 1SS3 his country was in a bankrupt condition. There was but one English shilling In the Treasury, and the salary of nil olllcers, from the President down, waij one year in arrears. At this time Kruger found it extremely hard to get along. There was no credit to be had ror the coun? try, and Kruger did not know what to do. It looked as if a famine was go? ing to overtake the land, but at the meet crucial period gold was found In the P.arbcrton district. A messenger from the new goldlields took a s?-^i of gold, containing twenty ounces, to the President, presenting it to him as the first yield of gold from the Transvaal. Kruger was astounded when he saw the gold. It is said by those present that his eyes doubled in size. He asked where It came from, and was Informed that It was from the Barbcrton district. "Is there any more left?" asked Kruger. He was told that the country was rich in gold ore and that millions of pounds could bo secured where that came from. "Thank God! My country is saved," was his reply. Kruger often expressed his regrets that he was not able to receive an early education. His only book for years was a Bible. On the occasion of laying the last holt in the Pretoria-Delagoa Bay Rail? road, November, 1894, the President wont out In his private car to perform the'act. At Bronkher Spruit a. delega? tion of Boers met the Presidential parly. Krueger had to speak. Out from the railroad station, about d mile dis? tant, could be seen the three-grouped graves of the rear guard of a British regiment, which had been annihi? lated bv tho Boers. The present trou? ble was beginning to make Itself mani? fest; at least Kruger was far sighted enough to realize that the storm would burst before very long.' Looking significantly toward the graves of the British soldiers, Kruger said to the 200 old Boers that he had gathered around him: "This Is our country. Never give It up. Remember that we fought for it and made It what It is. I will never! Never!! Never permit a foreign foe to lake the Transvaal from you so long as I shall live.
