Could Not Keep Them Out During the tin« when the alien expul sion law was in force in the Transvaal three Chinamen arrived at the little bor der town of Volkrust. The Transvaal au thorities had not had much experience of Chinamen up to this, but they were not taken with the appearance of the new comers and promptly put them hack over the Natal border. For the next three weeks the police at different points of the line were engaged in returning the China men to the colony. They were dragged out of freight cars, securely stowed away under tarpaulin covers; were rooted out of transport wagons journing along the main road; were picked out of gangs of Kaffirs, with their faces darkened so as to resemble their companions, traveling in ca'tle trucks. The Chinamen retained all their normal cheerfulness. After a time the Chinamen were seen no more in those parts anil they passed out of the minds of the officials. But later on three strange Chinamen were unearthed in Jeppertown doing a flourishing business among the Kaffirs, but the alien law was just then being quashed and they were allowed to abide where they were. The incident supplies a curious illustration of the yellow mail's persistence. Entertained H. 0. M. Club. A fancy dress party in honor of the H. U.
