ly. "In out case anil cln unistances'.'"
My heart beat fuilously that he should

The following Intel estliig anecdote Is

the lemaiks In last week's Truth on

gladly, ' he replied, "but there Is such
a prejudice against them In the .L-.--vlce."

The correspondent I have Just quoted
states, on tho authority of Mr. Conan
Doylc'u book, that the ledoubtublo De

this Is true It Is Indeed one of the ob
ject lessons of tho war. How ninny of

ceived their commissions can see us fur
as the bliio-spectiiclcd De Wet?
My last week's icmarks about spec
tacles In tho army werp delivered upro
lsifl of tho grant of a commission to a
City Imperial volunteer, who wns said
to be shortsighted. It was suggested
at the same time that the volunteer In
question had been orlglnnlly rejected
on medical gtntinds, but subsequently
passed, thtnugli the exertions of Influ
ential relatives. This suggestion, how
ever, apiH'ars to have been unfounded.

A Young Zulu Girl Who Couldn't Re
sist Her Natural Tendencies.
I.(1y Hi wiiii" in tlie ( urnlilll MirjIik".
I think quite the most cutlous In
stance of the thinness of surface civil
isation among these Zulu people came
to meet In the case of a young Zulu
girl who had been early left an orphan
and had been carefully trained In a
clergyman's family. She was about 16
years old when she came as my nurse
maid, and was very plump and comely,
with a beaming countenance, and the
sweetest voice and the prettiest man
ners possible. She had a great love for
music, and performed harmoniously
enough on an accordeon, as well as on
seveial queer little pipes and reeds.
She could speak, read and write Dutch
perfectly, as well as Zulu, and was
nearly as proficient In HugUsh. She
carried a little Bible always In her
pocket, and often tried my gravity by
diopplng on on kueo by my side when
ever she caught me sitting down aud
alone, and beginning to read aloud
from it. It was quite a new possession,
and she had not gotten beyond the
opening chapters of Genesis, and de
lighted In the story of "Dam and Eva,"
us she called our first parents.
She pioved an excellent nurse and
thoroughly tiustwoithy; the children
weie devoted to her, especially the
baby, who learned to speak Zulu be
fore English, and to throw a reed ns-
seqal as soon as ho could stand firmly
on his little fat legs. I brought her
to England with jne, and she adapted
herself marvelously and unhesitatingly
to the conditions of a civilization far
beyond what she had over drcamerl of.
A filend of mine chanced to
be returning to Natal and proposed
that I should spare my Zulu nurse to
her. Her husband'a magistracy being
close to wheie Maria's tribe dwelt, It
seemed a good opportunity for Maria
to leturn to her cwn country; so of
emu so f let her go, begging my friend
to tell mo how the girl got on. The
paitlug from the little boys was a
lieait-breaking scene, nor was Mapia
at ull comforted by the lino clothes all
my ft lends Insisted on giving her. Not
even a huge Oulnsborough hat, gar
nished with giant popples could con
solo iwr for leaving her "little chlf
t -ilti;" but It was, at all events) some
thing to fend her off so comfortably
provided tot, and with two large
boves of good clothes.
In the couise of a few months 1 io
celved a letter from my friend, who
was then settled In her up-country
homo, but her story of Maria's doing
seemed well-nigh Incredible, though
perfectly true. All had gone well on
the voyage, and ho long as they re
mained at Dm ban and Mnrltzhurg; but
as soon ns the distant settlement was
i cached, Maria's kinsmen came around
her and began to claim some share In
her piospeilty. Fne lights were of
constunt occurrence, and in one of
them Mai la, using the skull of an ox
as a we.tpun, broke her lister's leg.
Soon after that she returned to the
savuire life she had not known since
her Infancy, and took to It with de
light. 1 don't know what became of
her clothes, but she had presented her
self before my friend clad In an old
sack and with necklaces of wild unl
muls' teeth, and proudly announced she
had Just been married "with cows"
thus showing Imw completely her
Chilstlanlty had fallen away from her,
and she had practically returned, on
the lift opportunity, to the depth of
that savagery fiom which she had
been taken before she could even re
member It. I soon lost all trace of her,
but Maria's story has always remained
In my mind as an amazing Instance of
the strength of race Instinct.
