Cattle Ramly Why that Moet dramatic of All the features of the War the siege of Mafeking continues to occupy the first place in the attention of the British people and every scrap of information that comes from the beleaguered Little Garrison is welcomed. There Are Strong expectations in official a Well As general circles at this time of writing april 6 that news of Relief by i Luquer s or Louie other Force will come soon. It in certain that no disaster in South Africa would cause such Dot p und widespread disappointment ail grief in England As the failure to Suvo bade i Owen s Brave band. A by diet of interesting details of the siege Ali iii some flow has found its Way tier Hiigli the cordon of Boers around the town and then through Rhodesia ii uil Overland to the sea. Has at length Tiu lied Loudon. It brings Down the Biry of the siege to Jan. 20, two Long months ago. Later news has come by a ill i but it is the Bahl scan i y in Tell a circe. The writers of these co Numi cations Are Sarah Wilson and the i in spun deut of the London times. Lady Sarah s letter appears in the Louif Iluigi mail of april to Aud from it the Paraf graphs Are Talien a feature of the town a it in resent is its l Onil i to l s or shelters from Sileli tire.

Wotli Aliice Tarjie portholes for windows it Imirie resembles the Cabin of a yacht and its has been Thorou Day taste in As it is i think the Only shelter in the town on the top of which a <j4 i mud Shell actually exploded without even making the glasses Jingle or disturbing various War trophies Hung on tie wails inside. As an example of the curious effects of these shells and the marvelous escapes recorded 1 May leu ton that a fragment of this one went through a room of or. Weil s adjacent House taking a Canary and Cage with it through the window and leaving them at some distance while another piece went into a House across the Street making mince meat of a sewing machine and a new dress a Young lady was making and which she had left but three minutes before. Except this misfortune and the death of the Canary no harm was done but alas the same tale cannot always be told a scarcely a Day passes without some White Man or native being added to the already sadly Long list of those in this tiny Community who have been martyrs to this one sided Boinnard Lieut. Women Aud children have not escaped Scot free. Only this morning a Shell exploded in the women s Laager the locality of which the Boers knew perfectly Well killing curiously enough a Little dutch girl of 12 years of age holding a baby the latter was uninjured besides fatally injuring a Kafir girl. Quot and thus it is most Days. Apart from our losses among the soldiers h. S. A. P. British South african police and Cape police in the various and Gallant sorties which have been ail duly recorded in the papers civilians Aud innocent individuals Are struck Down Aud terribly mutilated suddenly and almost without warning. I say almost for when the big gun is loaded the Lookout at Headquarters from whence All Ber movements can be accurately watched gives the alarm by bound inf a deep toned Bell and when the gunners go to fire her this is supplemented by the shrill tinkle of a smaller belly not much louder than our Ordinary muffin Bell but which can be distinctly Beard in this Clear atmosphere. After this second warning about three seconds elapse before the explosion. Quot apropos of this Wise measure which has been the Means of saving Many lives the town dogs have now fully grasped its meaning and whenever the hell rings begin to bark loudly in All quarters so that if by Chance one fails to Bur the Hasty shrill tone of our trusty tutto Friend the dogs voices in unison cannot fail to warn one to take shelter. The dogs. Indeed ply a great part id this Pilege. One belonging to the base commandant has been wounded no less than three times another a rough Irish terrier has accompanied the protectorate regiment in All it in Kage Imite a third amuses itself by Runn log after the tau Maxim shells bar Kloff loudly and trying Bard to re a Rete the Reav it com Mlat Liim a dog 1� a prudent animal.

Very different is the so Chen ing Whir of a big ally followed by the Dull thud and crash denoting where it has dealt death and destruction. At least 700 of the 94 Pounder shells have been fired into this undaunted Little town and it is computed in All certainly 6,000 missiles of different kinds of destructive Power from the Boer Artuh Lery have found their Birueta Here. There is something very cowardly in the fairly regular evening Shell from the big gun which is usually loaded and aimed at Sundown and fired off Between 8 and 9 p. M., or even later Over a partially sleeping town very Early hours being kept Here when the Boers must know men and women May be killed indiscriminately. Quot a or this last shot wearied women and children generally wait before leaving their Bho tors and seeking their Beds in their various houses. But sometimes As a refinement of cruelty. It is not fired at All and those evenings the poor things creep to bed at last with Many h Soho Lings Quot a curious phase of the Boer Cliar Niter is the a mob vaunted Observance of the Sabbath Aud on this Day by a sort of Mutual agreement neither Side fires a shot i ale women and cd Lodi in emerge from the Laager dressed in their sunday Best tie shops Are open and do a Lively Trade services go on in the Little English Clu Icli still almost uninjured and every one is aide safely to ride Aud walk about the town Aud outside outline Veldt within our lines.

If snip King be the Rule by Day cattle raiding by night gives to the natives some profitable employment. During night the birr Alouys secured by a successful raid some 24 head of cattle Aud in the course of last week another raiding detachment looted some 18 oxen. The native enjoys himself when he is Able to participate in some cattle raiding excursion to the enemy s lines and although the local tribe May not have proved of much value As a unit of defense their Success at lifting the Boer cattle confers upon them a jul it due value in the Garrison. We were deploring the poor Ness of the cattle which remained at our disposal Only a few Hayti ago but the Rich capture which these natives have made has Given us a Welcome change fro iii let one and Sui ii to Juicy beef. Quot Thise Wisht excursions Are eagerly Antic i ated by the tril get. almost daily is the cons Emir of col inel Haden i Widl sought in Lela iii to such an object. During tiie Day the natives who have been deputed to take part in the raid api coach As near to the grazing cattle As discretion permits marking Down when Twilight Ai it pears the Posi ton of those beasts that can be most readily detached from the mob. Then when darkness is Complete they creep up. Do vested of their clothes crawling upon hands and Knees until they have completely Surro tided their prey. Then quietly Aud As rapidly As Clr Cuni stances will alow them each Mau gets a move of his particular beast so that in a very Short space of time some 10 or 20 cattle Are leaving the main Herd. When the raiders have drawn out of earshot of the Boer lines they urge on their captures running behind them and on either Side of them but without making any noise whatsoever. As they reach their Staadt their approach having been watched by detached bodies of natives who lying concealed in the Veldt had taken up positions by which to secure the Safe return of their friends the tribes go Forth to Welcome them and when the prizes have been inspected and report duly made to the colonel they celebrate the event with no Little feasting and dancing.
