'lie lives in it small and wretchedly kept iind furnished house, the most conspicuous articles of which are a small Dutch organ and a largo family Hible, for he is a conventionally pious man. He cultivates a very smull patch of his farm and leaves tho rest, us nature gives it. to grazing purposes, and relies ou his flocks and herds. And yet this farmer of tho wilder ness, rough and uncouth nud often surlv and suspicious .as he is, has a great and stirring history behind him in South Africa, of which ho is and has a richt to bo proud. Ho and his have struggled and trekked and warred i nad been massacred and have suffered j in blood and purse and pastoral wealth i these 2T0 years past. I doubt whether even an equal number of English peas ! ants, farmers, soldiers and settlers, of they had been planted at the Cape in llioi! as the earlv Dutch were would have emerged from the long struggle so little spoiled, and having lost little of tlieir national characteristics. The Dutch Afrikanders nro still of pure European blood, they still cling with tho simplest and subliniest faith to the literal teaching of their IJiblcs, still cherish with deep affection their wives and families, still go about i herding and hunting and trekking in the old slow, unconquerable, dogged spirit of their ancestors, still turn their faces north, and as their pastures grow small and crowded, trek for now lands with undimiued hope and vigor. The IJoer farmer usually passes his time in riding about or sitting in his house smoking or drinking coffee. His "Vrouw" sees to tho housework; his sous drive the ox-wagon. The living is wretchedly poor and vilely cooked, but tho Boer has few wants and is happy if left alone. Kaltirs do tho farm work, which is principally attending to the cattle, who neither require food or water, as the veldt pro duces the first, and there are always small streams or "vleys. " These peopie go to bed about 7 o'clock, but arise early. Illiterate) and uneducated to a greater extent than even the European peasantry, they coitntr.-. Socially he has always lived in a t'omowhat humble position, but ho does not bear the slightest liaco of the parvenu. I'lain and undistin guished in appearance, ho combines the advantages of n prodigious memory with a remaikable aptitude for rending his fellowmen.

Each morning about !l o clock ho may be seen driving to the govern ment olliees, and in the afternoon, with pipe and coffee, he holds a reception on the "stoop." Here ho is daily seen with a heterogeneous assemblage of visitors men with a grievance, appli cants for posts, would-be concession aires, and liners who seek his advice on family troubles. Tho incapacity of liritish representatives and commis sioners to comprehend th is palriarchial form of procedure caused tho outbreak of 1881. They rode rough-shod over these customs. When tho Boers have, or think they have, a grievance, some, ciders are deputed to visit "Oom l'aul," as the president is usually called. President Kruger listens to all that; they have to say, has a long talk with them, argues the t-oint. hauiuiers in his own convictions with his own reasons and perhaps a few texts of scripture, ami then the elders go back, explain to their constituents that they noiv see it ail clearly, and that they must bo all satisfied for the present. Tlie lloers are trained irregular troops from tlieir birth. A lad is tirst taught to ride a calf, and then a horse. At it certain age he has a rille given to him. and two cartridges at a time. After it few exhibitions, he must not i return empty handed, even if he only brings in a bird, or punishment en sues. He hunts on horseback at a fierco gallop, and when the game is overtaken, flings himself from the saddle and aims and fires as quick as lightning. Jn this way they become marksmen of deadly precision which tho Uritish regulars at Majuha Hill and Laing's Ford and later Jameson's men know full well. A Boer in a light stands behind his horse, if in tho open, like a dragoon ; only tho dragoon is taught Into in life, and the Boer and horse havo grown up together and are one. In a campaign ho only requires sonm drieil meat, "biltong," attached to his saddle and a trifle of spirits and water. His rifle. and cartridges are secured around his body; his horse will live on the grass of tiio veldt. Thus ho is fully equipped and baggage and commissariat unre quired and unknown.

Wild tales of wild doinus are some times toid as having occurred in far awav farms, and Olivo Schreiner's "Story of an African Farm" is stamped with truth. Hut these tales are often exa;.'!,'ei"itod, and the average Boer is. according to his lights, citizen pioneer and a rough, God-fearing, honest, homely, uneducated Phillistine. To understand tho lioer you must understand his theology, which rules his life and guides his actions, and you may as well fight him ut once as seek to arguo with his prejudices. In the early days of tho Iloer Trek they absolutely thought that tke would eventually reach Jerusalem. Their favorite scriptural reading is the Old Testament, and especially tho Honk of Joshua- where tho command to go forward, enjoy the promised land and smite tho heathen was freely adopted bv themselves as referring to tho Transvaal and the treatment of the Kalllrs. A clergyman says that lioers have told him thp.t they could not understand why he should preach to tho Kaflirs. who hud no souls. They regarded the Kaffirs as the descendants of Cain, and consider tho attempt to Christianize them as trying to nullify the curse of God. A. Uoer, speaking of .Matabeland.onco said solemnly that it was st beautiful country that would one day be taken by the lioers, a iding: "God Almighty never made it for Kalllrs. "' It is these esoteric beliefs that often govern tho volitions of a people and the government of the country. President Stephantis Johannes 1'au Is Kruger was born Oct. 10, in the district of C'olesberg, in the Cape Colony, and is. without doubt, the greatest and most representative man that the Uoers have yet produced. Uneducated or self educated, he possesses a very largo amount of that I natural wisdom so often denied t-i men of greater learning or cultivation. With many prcjudbres, ho is fearless, stubborn, and resolute, and he reallv understands Knglishmen a little better than thev understand him. Il his earlier davs ho was an ardent sports j man and a good shot : he ha been en gaged anal honorably mentioned in many Kaffir tights of his time, ami at the end of a rough and stormy life, ho tills the presidential chair of his inL. i-: ..r .. t' 4 n-....l. j Alio History 01 uic meat i iei. m migration into the lransvaal. if it ever comes to be written, will furnish one of the most inspiring of epics. These despised and slow moving Dutch farmers, armed with only flintlock guns, after sulTering cruel reverses uud tho bloodiest treachery, met and con quered the whole Zulu army, .then at tho height of its strength and military discipline. Fewer than -l.'iO Uoers suc cessfully resisted lUUU of the fiercest Zulu warriors. At the closo of that Hundav morning battle, fought upon December 10, IS-'iH. :t,000 Zulus lay dead round the Dutch laager; the stream flowing by, ever since called tho Ulood river, ran crimson : and the power of Dingaan and his nation was for years broken. One bnttlo was fought in laager against Moeelikatse's Matabelo hordes. There were but -10 grown Dutchmen in tho camp, but tho women and even the children (President Kruger, then a boy, was, I believe, among the num ber) served in tho defense ioading the long smooth-boro guns as fast as they were emptied, and the lioers finally bent otf tlieir savage enemy with great loss. After this reinforcements came in and small nanus tit mounted farmers attacked the Malaholc in their iwn kraals. so a prolonged deadlock is in prospect. Ex-Gov. Carroll .

A graduate of Harvard in 1N.V), he jVomptly enlisted at the outbreak of tho war and served in al most all grades of the service in the Union army to major-general of volun teers; distinguished himself in many battles of tho army of the Potomac and was severely wounded at Gettysburg. The story of his meeting with Gen. J. Ii. Gordon of Georgia years after has been often told. Harlow was wounded in the side, it was thought mortallv. Two soldiers endeavored to cany him from the field : one of them was kill ed, and Gen. Harlow tirtred the other to waste no time on him. for he was as president good as dead but to save himseif. Gordon's brigade of Georgians swept over him, and Gen. Gordon found Harlow apparently djing, dismounted gave him water from his canteen, and fullillcd, as he supposed, the Union gpneral's dying requests.
