What Is Doing In Local Sporting
No. S Footlmll team ia going to
h om some thia year in Cumberland,
if the hope of their manager, Jack
Oillesp:e, ia realized. The intention
is to enter the first team in one of the
outside teama. either the B. C. or the
Island. Cumberland should loom
large iu B. C. fontbnll this year.
Yeaterday morning the Cumlierlnnd
Team for the B. C. Championships
boarded thn bout for Vancouver.
Every one of the team was feeling fit
anil ready for buaineaa. They will have
a light work out in on the track in
Vancouver today, and will net Sunday. We wiah the boya all kinds of
luck ami hope that they will ad more
laurels to Cumberland'* already fam
oua athletic prowess.
The regatta that 1ms bcen rumored
to come oil' for so long is liable to be
realized, if those interested get in and
boost. Several gentlemen have prom
iacd to donate prizes: a gold medal, a
handsome shield and a eup are
some of the trophies, and though it
might not be n big thing thia year,
would pave tho way next year.
And while on the subject or a regatta, a wi»e thing would be the forming
of a boating club, and with a good organisation of the lake boatmen wonld
tend to do away with the petty pilfering and destroying of property thai
goes on all thc year round at the Lake

Large Gathering In The Cumberland Hall
For Ptirpose of Hearing Conservative and Liberal Candidates
A crowded and enthusiastic meeting
was held in the Cumliertknil Hall on
Monday evening when ihe Conservative Candidate and Ills opponent
addressed the Electors of Cumberland
upon the issue now before the country,
Reciprocity mainly, but its the Cooperative party maintain theta ia alao the
question of the Navy equally important.
Mr. Clements eloquently argued
both, especially the great mistake
that wonld be made if reciprocity waa
passed, and the Americans allowed to
exploit our natural resources which we
possessed in such abundance.
Americans, he deolared, had in the
post treated us with contempt and dis
tain, and now that they had prodigally squandered their own natural assets they looked upon ours with covetous eyes and had carefully spied ou'
the land, worked out a comprehensive
plan to seize our raw products, transport them across the border, get all
the profit that we should have by man
ufacturing them in the States, find em
ploymeot for their own citizens instead
of being manufactured in Canada, by
Canadian labor, it was simply continuing the policy they had always followed, besting us every time, that was
the reason the Conservative Pnrty
was patting off this strenuous fight a-
gainst their puct und greed of gain.
Sir Wilfred Laurier, he said, had
never mentioned Reciprocity or
thought of it, until some six months
ago when to cover up the shortcomings
and depredations of his government,
he used Reciprocity as a red herring
to draw off attention and if possible
cast dust in the eyes of the Electors ;
he asserted without fear of contradiction, that Mr. Fielding and Mr, Patter
son who were sent to Washington
were incapable of making anything
like a satisfactory agreement with those
smart Americans who succeeded in get
ing enything they want without giving
anything in return whilst he did not
believe in the annexation cry  he was
sure that was the main object of Mr.
Taft, did ho not boldly affirm that
Canada was at the parting
of the ways and that now was
their opportunity. What did that
mean, except that he hoped we
would join the Stars and stripes, Mr.
Clements stated fearlessly and openly
that he was a protectionist, and would
if elected, which he was sure he
would be, he would conserve Canada's
resources for Canadians only, he
would treat the Americans as they had
always treated us, he would tell them
as they in the pnst told us' "if you
want to benefit by our resources, come
and join us, become Canadians." Why
should we hand over to them our fish,
our timber or the product of our
mines, the idea was simply absurd
and suicidal; instead let us have preferential trade within the British Em
pire. He believed such a policy was
well worth striving for, and felt sun
the Conservatives of Cumberland ami
the whole of Comox-Atlin shared hi
belief and would return him as their
member' to the Dominion Parliament
on the 21st of September. Loud and
prolonged applause.
Mr. Ross then to->k the platform
and sang the praises of Reciprocity,
asserting that it would give the consumer cheaper living, that polities
neither reduced nor, raised wages, tha'
itis hotter to dispose of our na turulre-
sources than hoard them up for tho
future, that ho believed that America
was our natural market, much more .so
than England, thut there was uo sen
tiiiient iu business, that Reciprocity
would engender .friendship between
Canada nnd the States which he
thought would be Uio greatost benefit
of all.
With the rest of the arguments
used by the Liberuls two questions
only were asked, then the meeting
wus brought to an abrupt end, Mr.
Ross grandill' quently refusing to use.
his twenty minutes rebuttal, saying
thoro nas nothing to answer, A vote
of thanks wns tendered the chairman
for presiding.
We beg to thank all those kind
friends and neighbors whn assisted us
in our recent affliction, and by kind
words and kindly aow tried to lessen
our sorrow.

She laid one small hand on his arm

fool of her tense, pulsing body so close
to him gave Midway a strange, delicious
thrill. The color, he noticed, was still
playing in her cheeks.
"Now, let's throw some lead among
them," she said, laying several boxes
of cartridges where they eould both
reach them. "Shoot all around them,
but don't hit any if you can help it.

They began shooting. Tlio Mexicans, already realizing the peril of thoir
position, scarcely returned tbeir fire at
all. Two or three bullets sang toward the pump house and then the bo-
siegers ran helter-skelter toward the
open mesa. In less than live minutes
the last Mexican was out of sight.
"We've run them out!" exclaimed
They rose ami their hands met.

Kaiser Wilhelm has decided to restore their "burg," the most romantic,
majestic ruin in all hilly Thuringia.
Backed by archaeologists and architects, rich in drawings, paint, brand
new imitation stone, and oxydizod Nurnberg iron. Kaiser Wilhelm is about to renovate tiie immemorial, towering walls,
and hand back the Burg of Coburg to
the citizens as good as new. At tirst;
sight this, aa a cause of public tumult,
sums hopelessly Insufficient, but tho Co-
burgers aro a suspicious, nndiseorifmg
brood, and tlieir public orators, instead
of thanking the Kaiser, art} thundering
from platform and pulpit, "Leave our
ruins in peace!"
The facts are simple. The burg, fortress, citadel, or "veste," of Coburg is
au ancient complex of buildings whoso
toppling wails and pinnacles crown,
like Minerva's tiara, nu oak-clad hill
to the cast of Coburg town. It was
built in late Gothic, mostly towards the
end of tiie fifteenth .century, and until the middle of the sixteenth was the
residence of the local dukes, As more
architecture the burg is one of the finest mediaeval monuments in Germany.
Its history adds to its interest. Luther
lived there in 3830, and you may sec
the room whore lu* translated into German the prophets nnd the Psalms. A
hundred years later it reappeared ns
a bulwark of Gorman Protestantism,
being held by the Swedes of Augustus
Adolpbus, and in vain beleaguered by
(lory Wallenstein,
Today it is used as a museum. There
are relics of Luther, magnificent armor,
interesting frescoes, ami many otber
things. When you climb to the summit of its "Hohe Pastel" you may look
out all over green and hilly Thuringia.
Tn fact, as it stands,  'the    burg of
Coburg  is a  highly    respectable  ruin,
aud if oniy people would leave it    in
peaue  no man  would  complain.      But

Princo Consort took up their arduous
position imbued with a sense of deep
responsibility, and earried out their
duties with the utmost conscientiousness, all know who have read anything
of QuooU Victoria's life. Hut it
came, nevertheless, as a surprise to
some, this revelation of the care and

early days of the then I'rinee of Wales,

Imagine our little Prince ou the thst
morning of his new life. He has arrived
overnight with tbo seventy new boys
who constitute tho fresh arrivals and
are dubbed "lirst termers." The bewilderment of the new surroundings has
merged into sound slumber, but some
of it clings to his mind uh he opens his
eyes next morning. The reveille bugle
has uot yet sounded, and he has time
to look around. He sees the loug,
spotless, carpetless dormitory, with its
many curtainioss windows. Right ami
left uf him are narrow littlo iron beds
like his own, euch bed covered with a
regulation blue rug, with the owner's
initials embroidered on it in rod; another row of beds opposite bim, eighteen on ench side. Between each is a
small, plain wna list and. and at tho foot
of each stands thc cadet's sea-chest—a

Uiiriug i'rinee Kdward'a first year of
school life there came to him the sad
experience of the nearness aud suddenness of death. A boy in his uwu dormitory died after a tew days' illuoss,
and a.-* the littlo i'rinee, with tho rest
of thy hoys in his "term," followed
the gun-carriage bearing the body of
their comrade; pacing with slow stop
and downcast hoad, the solemnity of the
occasion must have weighed on his
young mind.
The ilrst two yeurs of his training
over, the second stage of Prince Kd-
wanl's career began; he went on tu
Dartmouth College, which ns a training
school has superseded the old Hritun-
nia. Here, on the stoop wooded banks
uf the lovely llttlo river Dart, stands
the huge building, too elongated to be
beautiful, but well built uud a splendid training-ground for England's sailor
lads. It is "stops up and steps down,
steps everywhere nml all day lung,"
so one cadet described it. Tiie college
faces the south, looking out over the
two little towns of Kingswear und Dartmouth, groups of clustering red roofs
on either hunk of the river. There is
but one bend of tho river between
them und the open son. Tho next
turn in their lives will bring the boys
to the opeu sou too; it is wuiting for
them, almost in sight—the open sea,
with its loneliness, its hcuuty, its dangers, and its joys.
Prince Bdward's first Devonshire
winter proved him a good cross-country
runner, nnd the boy was among the
keenest for a run with the beagles. The
ollege hus its own puck, hunted by
tho commander, uud the whips are
chosen from a lining the cadets, who
mostly follow on foot. .Sturdy of
limb ami sound of wind have those to
bc who follow for miles up and down
those Devonshire hills, and us ouo sees
the field coming buck after a long wet
run, covered with mud, disheveled, und
vory hungry, one is consoled bv the
thought thut there is a sturdy stock still
to man thc ships which are Kngland's
hope and  pride.
I'rinee Kdward was past fifteen when
he was prepared for his confirmation.
This wns intrusted to the chaplain at
Dartmouth, ami wdsely so, for, besides
his earnesl devotion to his profession,
he was the one person who had boon
st iu touch with the Imy for mouths
his week-day divinity teaching ami
ia Sunday services; he knew the incidents of "his everyday life, and would
be far belter abloto appeal to the best
side of his hoy nature.
Thosei who were present in St.
Hoot-go's Chapel at Windsor and saw
the little kneeling figure of the boy
and the uplifted hands of the Arch
bishop against the somber background
of ancient carving iu the mellow liglit
of the stained-glass windows felt that
this was no mere formal state function;
they knew that earnesl prnyers* were
rising from manv hearts for blessings
on the head of 'this child who might
some day be called upon to bear much
and strive much, and whose life must, of
necessity, be fraught with responsibility
ami anxietv above that of his fellows."
The death of Kdward VII., us his
grandson was approaching his sixteenth
mrthday, brought the boy a step near
er these great responsibilities. Hut
once the i in posing funeral was over,
back the I'rinee went to work. Some
changes were made iu his curriculum;
less time wns given to technical seamanship, more to political history ami
modern languages,
The Prince's democratic education,of
which 1 have tried to give some idea,
had a democratic finish. In the middle
of his Inst term he and his brother
both went down with the measles, of
which un epidemic broke out. There
were 110 serious consequences to either
I'rinee Kdwurd or his broth
any nortiiul school-hoy, they no doubt
congratulated themselves on the break
iu the work, thc pleasant convalescence
und the delightful unexpected holiday
for sick  leave.
Time only can show the result of this
education, but its humani/.iug inllueuce
none can question. Those who govern
must be in the closest touch with those
they govern. They must be able to put
themselves in the place of those whom
legislation is to benefit, and they must
be able to look at things from the
point  of view of the ordinnry citizen.
Thnt was the lesson convoyed by
that most fascinating book of Mark
Twain's, "The Prince ami the Pauper;" ami what the Prince Edward of
those days learned in a verv hard

of a century ago, Todny the Maoris
vote and hold land in New Zealand side
by side with wliite men. hi some ways,
Maori lawyers, Mnori doctors, and
Maori ministers of religion have moro
of thc graces of civilization thuu their
white neighbors. In the sonso that it
it is' known in America, and that Englishmen are coming to know it in South
Africa, there is no race problem in
lhis country nt nil, Only tho other day
King George Included a -Maori in his
honors list.
The Maoris aro noteworthy among
all thc primitive nations of the world
for having taken the graces of tho
whito man's civilization nnd left the
vices alone.
Take   Pomnro's   grandson,    for    instance.    A   mnn  starts  with  a  bit  of,
a handicap on his future achievement
whoa his grandfather was a wild, m.an-
eating savage. But is Pomare's grandson n mat-garbed cannibal? No, ho is
Dr. Wi Maui Pomaro, u university
graduate, and a cultured und refined
gentleman. Moro than that, ho has
preserved his grandfather's traits of
leadership, for ho has been appointed
to the post of Oovernment Chief Medi-
ca'l Ofik-or among his people.
Tlmt is what strikes a stranger
among the Maoris of New Zeuland lirst
uud most forcibly—how much thoy
hnvo learned from the whites, ami how
much they havo refused to learn.
Whou tho Maoris tuke up anything,
they generally take it up vigorously,
uud very mueh in their own fashion.
When they fought the whito man,
they fought lum with his own methods,
with gunpowder and rifle pits and
skirmish lines—and with a word of
honor that the white man eamo to respect. They fought him successfully,
too, for a long series of years, ending
ubout tho time of the American Civil
War, with New Zoulaud far from "conquered." The white men took up laud
the Maoris couid uot uso—for their
tlfty thousand population still own over
7,000,000 acres. And the Maori fought
for his rights throughout so fiercely
und honorably thut to come together
on even terms after the wars was tho
most natural thing possible. That is
tho chiof reason why thoro is 30 little
race prejudice. And it, is also becauso
men liko Dr, Wi Maui Pomare aro so
proud of tho race of their cannibal
grandfathers that they set a strict ban
on intermarriugo with the whito mnn.
Tokens of rare Inequality like the
".Iim Crow" car, thc "grandfather"
clause, or the social and political limitations suffered by the Hindu, are unknown in Now Zealand. All through
the Maori country, white and dusky
children attend tho samo schools with
no distinction of race or color. From
To Aute College, at Hawke's Hay, und
St. Stephen's School in this city, many
brainy young Maoris graduate each
year and go forth to add to the natives'
pride of race and white man's store of
knowledge. The 128 scholarships offered by the New Zealand Government are
barely enough to sutist'v the iueroasing
It is in their nativo villages, how-
over, that ouo comes to understand
best, the odd blend of civilizing and
traditional elements that makes the
Maoris unique among races of their
color. Up to the northeast hore, you
very up-to-date present in the way tho
can seo tho business ingenuity of a
huge thousand-acre sheep farms are run
by their native Owners. Tho sheep-
shearing is usually done by machinery
of the latest pattern, and the Xguti-
Porou tribe, one of tho most famous
fighting tribes in the country, have put
almost every acre of their land under
grazing aha general sheep-farming in
the most advanced style.. A home-made
native telephone systom connects the
villages all around the Capo and links
up with the Government system iu the
Hut the Maoris have acquired more
than the crust. of civilization in the
white man's scientific conveniences.
They havo adjusted their tribal customs to his laws. All traces of cannibalism were put away fifty years ago;
tattooing, until recently compulsory on
each Maori brave, is also fast passing
out nf fashion. Tho fortitude which
was meastirod by the depth and numbor of iadia-ink filled slashes a man
could stand on his face nnd chest still
exists, but is measured now by thc
more [complex standards of tho Euro
But outside of tho unpopularity of
war since ponce settled down on the
country, the visible side of Maori lifi
is little changed. In tho villages
around Rotorua the great Arewa tribe
,*arrv on the same native handicrafts
as they hnvo for centuries, ami practice the same picturesquo old rites they
brought ovor from mythical Tluwaiiki
seven hundred years ago. No Kuroponn
can afford to look down on their systom of life which has lasted so long,
for in many ways, it was, and is today,
the perfect communal state. Land is
owned in common, but ench man must
be his own enrpenter, ship-builder, fisherman, farmer, fire-maker, rigger, and
sailmnker. Thero is no room for drones
iu the Muoi village Loft naked and
destitute on an uninhnhitcd island, his
training would muke him king of men
nt home, and comfortnble whoro ninny
a white Itobinson Crusoe would perish.
Hi build, the Mnori is .notable among
the sons of than, Erect aud proud, with
the natural dignity of an athlete that

temperament has more than one strain
in it that allies him with tho irresistible Celt. His history is full of myth
aud legend of rare poete power. Everything in heaven and on earth is woven

The uui 11 who is their most distinguished leader today, though brought
up among them, nnd considering himself true Maori in thought, is himself
born of Irish parents. He is the Hon.
.lames Carroll, Minister of his Majes
ty's Govornmont for Xew Zealand for
Native Affairs, Under his leadership,
the Maoris hnve turned the tide of
tlieir decreasing population and hnve
evolved a modern race pride that has
set' their level for future achievement
high. With lhis Trishmnn at their
head, nml with thc proofs before them
of what grandsons of cannibals can ac

mnn, there is still a future for the
Maoris among the civilized peoples of

'■ Misery loves company,'' quoted
Mr. 'I'abb', au old-time Virginia gentleman, the other night. "There's a great
deal of truth in that old saying.
"Nome forty or fifty years ago thoro
.was a celebrated Virginia character,
well known in Washington. Baltimore
and New Vork, whom I shall call Mean
Smith (becnuse Smith wasn't his teal
name 1. I lean Smith vvas not on l.v
noted for the elegance of his dress and
the perfection of his manners, but also
for his .absolute disregard of all financial obligations—ho was never known
to pay a bill under anv circumstances.
"H'oail entered the olliee of the obi
Monumental hotel in P-altimore oue
night, rogistored, and upon being assigned lo one of the best suites of
rooms iu the house, for he would be satisfied with only the best, re proceeded
to make himself thoroughly at home
nnd settled down lor a long slay; he
ordereil champagne bv lhe ease and
cigars by thc box for the entertainment
of such friends as might visit lum in
bis apartments, and, in short, Jived as
though he had millions behind bim.
The proprietor of the hotel, Mr. Guyor,
hud heard of Dean, but he could not be
liqvo that he would ilcliborutely run
up such a large bill if he had no intention of paying it, and he hesitated
about speaking to such an elegant gen
tleinun about such an inelegant thiug
as money; but nfter Bean hud been 11
guest at the Monumental for over n
month and hnd said nothing ubout puy-
ing his bill, Mr. Guyor summoned up
his courage and hud Bonn's bill mude
out und seat up tn him, In a few
moments Mr. Guyor received a polite
bnt urgent message from Beau asking
him to come to his apartment at once.
" 'I sent for you, Mr. Guyor,' said
the impecunious Beuu, 'to show you a
most remarkable document wliich has
been sent up to me from your olliee.
I don't wish to complain of your'clerks,
sir; but I dislike being annoyed iu this
way. Will you kindly loo'k nt that
nnd tell me what it is?'
"'That is a bill, Mr. Smith,' said
Guyor, us soon as ho recovered his
"'Ho I observed,' responded Beau;
'but, Mr. Guyor, it is made out ngainst
" 'Certainly,' replied the hotol man.
1 It is our account against you for
board and lodging, wines, cigars and
other extras, for the past mouth, and J
would be glad if you—'
"'Why, my dear sir,' interrupted
Beau, laughing; 'yon surely never ex-,
pected me to pay this bill?*'
" 'I most certainly did aud do expect you to pay it,' answered Mr.
Guyor, firmly.
" 'But, dear sir,' said Beau, gently,
'you knew who I was when I came to
your house.'
"Mr. Guyor admitted thut he did.
" 'Then you know," continued Beau,
'thut I hnve never been known to puy
a bill tu anyone, and no ono in his
senses ever expected that I would.
Now, my dear sir, I beg of you to destroy this ridiculous document uiid see
thut. I nm not annoyed again with such

not?' demanded the hotel proprietor
" 'I do not,' replied Beau quietly.
" Very woll, then, 1 will sue you,
" 'That is your privilege, sir.'
"'And I will gel a judgment, too,'
said Gayer angrily.
" 'Vou will get more than that, Mr.
Guyor,' responded Beau calmly. 'You
will get yourself laughed at; by the entire couutry for being so foolish as to
imagine that you could collect a bill
from Beau Smith. Pray do not subject yourself to sueh ridicule.'
"Guyor hesitated; he know ho would
be laughed at unmercifully by everyone, and then, too, he could not help
but admire the colossal cheek of Smith,
so he sat down again and lit a frosh
" 'Mr. Smith.* snid he, MTI tell you
whal I will do, if you will move ovor
to the Pity hotel and play this same
game ou old man Barnum I'll give yuu
a receipt in full for ull that you owe
me and say no more about it.'
" 'Receipt the bill, Mr. Guyor,' answered Smith coolly; 'I hail been stopping with Mr. Barnum f»r a month
prior to coming to your house und ho
also promised to givo me u receipt in

that of Into years the whaling at Mackeu/.ie rivor has not been as good as
formerly, and where one season or two
a whaleship secured the enormous catch
of some 50 to 00 whales at this place
in a single year, no such catch has been
made since that time.
Tho cry of the Arctic, whaleman who
goo*   there   in   steamers,   is   "further

Now Bedford "whalemen say that it
was easy   enough   for    the    Canadian
steamer  to  catch   one  little   American
schooner iu Hudson Hay and make the

meu remember that several yoars ago
the Canadian Govornmout sent an expedition to Hudson Uny    to bullyrag a
littlo whaling schooner from Now Bedford iuto paving a license fee fer hunt
ing the whales und game of the North.
But   one  American   whaler  has   visited
Hudson  Bay for many years, and two
Canadian steamers, the Arctic aud  Nop

The Tluickery centenary    has    again
aroused discussion as to thd rolutlvo
merits of his work and that of Dickens.
These two geniuses were bom withiu a
yenr of nne another, and Iheir work

Bul us someone suid years ago, you can
nu more compare Dickons and Thackerv
than ynu can compare Niagara ' and
Mount Evorest. Not narrowing the
glorv of our literature, let us rejoice to
love them both.

llo did it bravely, but he had to consider his Victorian public. His gifted
daughter, still happily with us, writes:
"It must bo remembered that my
father from the age of twenty-two
supported himself, married, and kopt a
family on what he earned by writing
for newspapers and magazines; though
he had lost all private fortune his intellect snvod him from nny of thoso
crises of poverty through whicli many
huvo to pass; but for years he was glad
to write on any subject provided ho
was paid at a reasonable rate."
' Vanity Pair" was written in monthly parts. The instalments were ofter
turned out at tho very last moment,
whilo the printer's "devil" was waiting. We think of Fiolding scribbli.ig
farces for thc theatres in taverns, sometimes on bits of tobatco paper. We
marvel that either of them could have
turned out work in circumstances ot
journalistic pressure und yet muke so
much of it immortal.
Thackeray's role was not that of the
optimistic, genius of Dickens, lle had
disagreeable things to say, and the
conventions of his epoch were immovable. He was uot allowed iu that
ago to be as frank ns Holding. Ho

even had ho been free, and never could

had to write for his living under rigid
conditions in thc age that it was.
Upon one point, and oue alone, he is
timid. He is timid on certain questions
of sex, where overy amateur who follows a later fashion may he audacious
with profit, nml evon impudent with
impunity. There are worse faults in
Thackeray than submission to prudery.
Lady Castlcwood, perhaps, excepted,

Thackeray has the humor which is ns
endless and smiling as the ripples of
the   sen   and   as   healthy  lis  salt   water.
It is the source not often of load laughter,  hnt   some  subtle    and    saturating
pleasure of th iml which bathes his
roudors in the happy elomont and gives
relief and refreshment to every nerve.
If you huve forgotten, you need not try-
to read the whole of him again right
through. Open him anywhere and read
n  chapter or two.      It  will bo enough
to   restore   the   se  of  delight and   to
make you feel again how big Thackeray
was. Take down " I'endeimis." for Instance, und rond llie hist interviews be-
tweon the Major and Barry Pokor and

all this there is the ruthlessness nf
vision and exposure which made Buskin,
extravagantly susceptible as he was,
liken Thackeray to "a meut-lly which
settles on all .you wnut to eiit and
makes yon sick'of it."
Above all, there is that final aud pio
diglous gilt of crenliveness. Eveu

After nil, Lord Kitchener is not
going to settle down and end his days
us nn Knglish country gcutlonmn. At
Ihe ago of 01, still a bachelor and "a
man of iron," ho is going back to
Egypt, thc scene of his most talkedof
achievements. Bis name became mighty
in that country whea as commander
of the forces thero in 181)8, ho cleared
tho wdiolc country of tho dervishes,
destroying the Mahdl's army ut Om-
durniaa with a loss of 11,000 killed.
16,000 wounded, and 1,000 tnken prisoners. Now ho returns, not as a coldior,
but as au administrator—British Agent,
ruler of tho country.
Lord Kitchener wus bom in Ireland,
but there is nothing Irish about him—
no mirth, no poetry, nothing li|t0 that
nt all. Nobody ever thought of calling
him "the idol of his meu," although a
good many military leaders have been
given that title undeserved. Kitchener
has always been uneomprisingly cold
und hard. But ho gets things done.
Everything ho takes hold of moves
along systematically aud relentlessly.
Somo of tho critics say he will antagonize the Kgyptians. Perhaps ho will.
But at all events it is pretty certain
he will make them bohave whilo ho is
on the job.
Kitchener's riso in thc army, before
his famous cleanup of tho fighting
Egyptian natives, was very rapid. For
that campaign he was raisod to the
peerage and given a grant of thirty
thousand pounds by parliament. llis
work in the Boer war is well remembor-
ed. In 1903 he went to India nnd reorganized tlio army thoro, but that
country was not big enough for both
him and Lord Curzon, then Viceroy,
and ho resigned iu 1905. In 1909 he
was made Field Marshal and appointed
Commander-in-Chief in the Moditerran
ean. But that was no job even for a,
feather-bed soldier. For somo time, indeed, Kitchener has beeu really out of
a job, and everybody in the old country
has been worryin g about the fact.
Whatever ke accomplishes as successor
to 8ir Eldon Gorst, in Egypt, his namo
will go down in history as ono of the
greatost  soldiers  the  world   ever saw.
