Oveiaati iron one In speaking about Scott's Emulsion for children, you should not forget that it con tains we and soda, just what the child must have to form strong bones and good teeth. It's this forming time you want to look after. Growing bodies must have an easily digested fat Just think, how much of it there is in milk, as cream. scoii's Emulsion is even more easily digested than cream. It's surprising how chil dren thrive when given it. Don't keep the children living on the edge of sickness ail the time. Make them strong and rugged, plump and hearty. " Scott's Emul sion of Cod-liver Oil and the Hypo phosphites of Lime and Soda will do this for them. At all drusrsriM ; yyc. and $ i oo. SCOTT Si UM'.Nt, Chemists. New York.

Prealdent Krncer Lives In at Modest llonae and Is Devoted to His Fm lly and to Coffee An Karlr Fitcbt "U lib a I'antber Hatred of tbe Eng lish. "First pray to GoJ for guiJauee and Inspiration, then light," is the motto of President Taul Krug?r of the Trans vaal. Imagine u man hsss than 5 foot 7 iuches iu height, but in builil like a, giant, his hair while with years, his features homely iiml oarse, wearing an ill fitting black doubled breasted frock coat reaching below the knees. Such a man is Ooni Paul. Void of look lfaruiiig. apiarent!y not gifted above the average man, armed oi v with his natural craftiness, he has been a thorn In the fide of the greatest diplomatists and statesmen in Knglaud for years. lie was born on Oct. 10. lso. near the present town of Graff Iteiuet. Caii Colony. His parents were South Afri can farmers, who loft their home in Holland a few years before Paul was born, hoping for good fortune iu the new country. liut 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 christened S. J. Paul Kruger, but at an early age the first two Initials were dropped.'' IIo uses them now when signing rfilti? pa pers, lie was taught early to pray and to handle a gun. He was a fearless boy. When he was y, his parents re lented P.ritish regulations and moved to the northeastern part of Natal, not far from I.adysmith, the lirst impor tant strategic point in this war. There were two oilier children iu the family, a girl and a boy, both younger than Paul. The brother was killed in a na tive light in the Natal colony, und the tdstcr lived to see her brother made president of the Transvaal. When Kruger was about 13 years of age. his father, sister and he went with a bullock team some distance Into the Orange Free State. The senior Kruger was forced to remain and told Paul to take the team home and to look after his sister. I'll lake care of her, father," was the reply. Everything wont well until Taul and his sister were about live miles from home. Then a panther appeared iu the road. The 1( bullocks in the team took fright and ran away. The jolting of the wagon threw the sister from the seat into the roadway, where she was at the mercy of the panther. Paul, though unarmed, ran to her rescue and tackled the panther. It was a lieree struggle, and Kruger believed once or twice that the panther was going to prove too iiuich for him, but finally he managed to kill the animal with his knife. It was iu the hitler part of 1S79 that I lir.st met Kruger, writes John 10. Owens iu the New York Sun. The F.oors at that time were on the verge of a war with the Hritish. When I was introduced to Kruger, he was suspi cious of me. and it was only when as sured that I was an American that he became at all talkative. In those days Kruger would talk Kuglish, but since the visit of Sir Henry Lock to Pretoria in ls;:t he has positively refused to ut ter one word of Kuglish. The Kruger of l&l'J was a poor man. He had ditii culty in supplying his family with the necessities of life, for besides his wife he had ten children to care for. He lived then in a farmhouse, but he left the farm to care for itself, for he had a more important matter to attend to the creation of a revolution against the Kuglish. CJeueral 1. .1. Joubert. com mander of the l'.oer forces aud vice president of the Transvaal; young Pre terms, son of the republic's first presi dent, and Kruger were planning the P.oer uprising which came the follow ing year, resulting in the independence of the Iloers in 1SS1. It was these three that managed the campaign against the Kuglish forces at Majuba Hill. The next time I met Kruger was in 1S:I. Although he was now the presi dent of a nation aud reputed to be worth S.VKni.imhi, I found him as sim ple and as democratic as ho was In the lays of 1S71. when he was unknown to fame aud had hard work to support his family. It was on this occasion that 1 realized the great qualities of this man. lie cordially invited me to become his guest during the short time that I was to remain in Pretoria, an Invitation which I readily accepted. He would not talk English to me on this occa sion, so 1 had to carry on conversa tion with him through other members of the family. The old president never tired of talking about the United States, designating 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 American merchants In trade. "I can trust Americans," he would say, "for I know that they do not want ray country." liofore I left his residence he said to at.- through his secretary: "When you go home to the United States, tell the IeopIe there for me that there Is a small nation here, loving their country and their lilerty 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 ran down tbe old man's cheek. He often talked of the days when he drove his father's via bullock team, and now prides him self on the fact that he Is still able to track a 'M foot whip over 10 bullocks. Kruger is devoted to his wife, chil dren, grand and great-grand children, while they in turn adore him. He lives Iu a uiodest house, which stands back from the sidewalk about 13 feet. There Is a grass plot in front aud a sentry Ikix inside of the iron railing. This house was presented to him by a syn dicate. When the volksraad is in ses sion, a soldier Is stationed in front of the president's house, and no one, ex cepting oliicials. may enter the resi dence during the lay without ierm:s ion. After 7 o'clock in the evening all are welcome to the chief executive's home. Every morning at G o'clock a negro servant takes a cup of black coffee and a big pipe tilled with tobacco to the president's room. As soon as he has drunk the coilee Kruger rises aud smokes the pipe while he is dressing. He is down stairs by t:".0 o'clock and is ready to lead the family prayers at 7 o'clock. Preakfast is served about 7:'M a. m. His morning hours are taken up with matters of state and the dic tating of letters. The dinner hour Is 1 o'clock. At all the meals Kruger says grace before bread is broken. He takes a s-hort nap after the noon meal and is ready promptly at 3 o'clock in the aft ernoon to receive callers. The supper is served at U o'clock, and the conclu sion of this repast ends all the worri ment of the day for Kruger. Many writers have told how hot cups of thick black coffee are served at fre quent Intervals. Every person receiv ed is served with coffee. Ik-sides his salary of IHO.OOO a year, Kruger gets $10,000 annually for coffee money. There is a two gallon kettle of coffee always hot in the kitchen. - Since Kruger was elected president in;18Sl he has been confronted with some trying times. In lS-So his country was in a bankrupt condition. It looked ns if a famine was going to overtake the land, but then gold was found in the llarberton district. A messenger from the new goldfields took a sack of gold containing "0 ounces to the presi dent, presenting it to him as the first yield of gold from the Transvaal. Kru ger was astounded when he saw the gold. He asked where it came from and was informed that it was from the Itarberton district. "Is there any more left?" asked Kru ger. He was told that the country was rich in gold ore and that millions of pounds could be 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 Itible. On the occasion of laying the last bolt in the Protoria-Delagoa Bay rail road, Xovemlor, 1S04, the president went out in his private train to per form the act. At Bronkher Spruit a delegation of Boers met the presiden tial party. Kruger had to speak. Out from the railroad station, about a mile distant, could be seen the three group ed graves of the rear guard of a Brit ish regiment which had been annihilat ed by the Boers. The present trouble was beginning to make itself manifest. At least Kruger was farsighted enough to realize that the storm would burst before very long. Looking significant ly toward the graves of the British soldiers. Kruger said to the 2(H) old IViers that had gathered round him: "This is our country. Never give It up. Bemember that we fought for it and made it what it Is. I will never, never, never permit n foreign foe to take the Transvaal from you so long as I shall live." Ornsnhopppri Rained Down. A severe storm visited English, Ind., recently, and after the storm was over grasshoppers, almost as plentiful as the raindrops, fell from the sky. In the town the pavements were covered to a deptli that made walking miserable. It Is feared, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer, that they will greatly injure the wheat crop of this section, as it seems they have come to stay until cold weather shall kill them. The General HjIhk a Captive to tbe Boers. A strange coincidence attaches to the death of General Sir William Symous. He fell but 30 miles from the place where, on the fatal day of Isandula, his old regiment, the Twenty-fourth, was cut up. It is sad to reflect that both In the last battle of the first and In the first battle of the second Boer war the English lost their commander. Saturday Beview. Brother Joseph Rndyard Klpllnnr.
