An unknown poet. or. at leant, one tv ho is known only bv the initials ”L. .T. O. Ik.” has written what may be called Justly the best poem that the war la South Africa has inspired yet. says the New York Press. It is re markable that this really excellent piece of work has not been circulated widely before this, especially since the British nation is hungry for good war poetry, of Which it is not getting much, ff any. This poeui was printed In The Telephone, a weekly paper published In Cape Town, on Sept. 25. The words “rool baatje.” used by the poet, refer to the redcoated British soldiers: Lay my rifle here beside me, set my Bible on my breast. For a moment let the wailing bugles cease; As the century is closing I am going to my rest. Lord, lettest thou thy servant go In peace. But loud through all .the bugles rings a cadence in mine c:sr. And on the winds my hopes of peace are stow ed— The winds that waft the voices that already I can bear Of the rool baatje tinging on the road. Yes, the redcoats arc returning; 1 can hoar the steady tramp. After twenty years of waiting, lulled to sleep. Since rank and file at i’otcliefstroom we hemmed them hi their ramp And rut them up at llronkerspruit like sheep. They shelled u« at Ingogo, but we galloped into range. And we shot the British gunners where they showed. I guessed they would return to us; I knew the chance murt change— Hark! The rooi baatje singing on the road! But now from snow swept Canada, from India's torrid plains. From lone Australian outposts, hither led. Obeying their o uiir.ando as they heard the bu gle’s strains. The men in brown have joined the men in red. They’ come to (hid tlie colors at Majuba left and lost. They come to pny U 3 bock the debt they owed. And I hear new voices lifted, and I see strange col ors tossed Mid the rooi baatje singing cn the read. The old, old faiths must falter, tfco old, old creeds must fail; I hear it in the distant murmur low. The old, oid order changes, and ’tig vain for ua to rail; The great world dors not want us, we must go. And veldt and spruit and kopje to the stranger will belong; No more to trek before him we shall load. Too well, too well I know it, for 1 hear it in the song Of tlic rooi baatje singing on the road! PARIS EXPOSITION NOTES. The state of New York will send to the Paris exposition of 1900 a forestry exhibit of 34 specimens of wood, all native to the stutc.
