Dear Walter and Hunk: As promis

when It Nits all gone, livery (lux that
you (urn a corner it costs you M. Hut
there Is plenty of work heie. A man
with n fair education cnu do well here,
or a goml trnilcsimin. nud they pay you
not Icsh than HISfi a month; but every
time Hint vou go nud get a meal she
com Is you i'i cents and It isn't as good
as army grub and you know how we
used to kick lu the army; and whim
you take a drink she cosu you 2ft cents.
I lauded I .TIKI miles south of here, at
Cape Town, and came up the country
towanls the Transvaal and went broke
ami hnd logo to work, and you all
know that nearly broke my heart; but I
got 11 good Job ns a llremau oil the Hod
cHn & lleini rallnmd and it pays me
8175 it mouth, but she costs me $7."i for
boanl and 62ft for whisky, so I have a
pretty good salary left.
This Is 11 worse place t tut 11 Port Si.

get men to work hero lu the summer.
It Is whiter hero now. livery man that
works for the mllroad company Is fur
nUhcd from oiietotliieeuegioes to help
him. I have got two, one to shovel coal
ami another to do inv washing; they
work for82Ji()a month and their hoard
nud clothes; they don't eat anything
hut rice nud don't hardly wear uuy
clothes; but they me kept in their place
better here than the negroes are lu the
stale. They are not nllowist to walk
on the sidewalks; they run lu the streets
like dogs.
