In the comliif etruifgle lietween Orrut
Trltuln and the Tranevaal a Very curl
un alate t affairs has come about In
the lltpoalllnn of the fliflulng nwn of
both aides. It. waa announix-d last wevk
that the I'MUtue. lha flcrcsi half-iavnw
trltw of bill men Inhabiting the Inland
country, bordering on the Trannvnul,
were going to caat .their lot with the
ItiMTK. Or rat wua the aathifitctlon
amen the Dutch farmers at this an
nouncement. They realised that they
hud received a valuable addition jto
th"lr fighting force, ami that Ow Kng
llshmen had a touuh nut to iyiick In
the naked black man who foutfM only U
witn a kiioui'U ciud ami mu in ininua
cade In the Jungle. i : '
Following clime on the hwls vt this
annnuni-enwnl came ttvfl Information
that the Ohourkas, from India, j hud
algnlfled their intention of flglgJUlir ttf
the "white Empress" and desired to
enllm agulnat the Iiuera.
What caused the "bonnle IKtle fight
ing .-non," aa the Scotch soldiers In In
dia are wont to call the Ohourkaa, to
desire a brush In South Africa no on
can say. IVrhapa they had heard about
the lias ut as and their inrihods,, and h
tnougni oc tiie oia inue ngming bi
close quarters stirred their blood.
Tht Ghourkas aa a race are little,
broad shouldered men. They form a
part of the regular English army In
India. They are well drilled and well
uniformed In the, usual light, suit suit
able for that "sunny clime," but no
amount of Instilled English Ideas and
no amount of English drilling have been
able as yet to convert oyn use
of the rifle or the field gun alone.
They stick to 'their big two-edgvd
knife, a weapon wlilch' they use with
fearful results on an enemy at close
quarters. Tho chief delight of their life
Is to get Into a regular rough and tum
ble fight, whqre guns are useless and
only quickness and the lufig knlft count.
Kipling In his short stork's and poem
has made the name of the Uhourkas
famous, and given the world some Idea
of the respect, which they have earned
for ithelr long, sharp knife. Whr-n Eng
land first fought In India the Ghotirkns
were their nmat hatred foes. Wo to the
Prltlnh square that could not stop with
Us guns the onruah. of the little men as
they ran Into close quarter. ,
Stabbing right and ' left with a
strength that was nlmply wonderful,
these Qourkas were bound to leave their
mark wherever tlwy went However,
as time went on, the 0 hour km began
to franlernlze with their ancient en
emies until tine colonial policy of old
England put thorn Into a khaki uni
form, and turned the deadly blnde
against the fo."8 of the Crown.
The IrlHhmen In the army cannot get
along with 'them In peace, but the
Scotchmen as a rule have taken a
funcy to them. A little flvo-fnot
Ghourka and a big six-foot Scotchman
walking together on parade grounds
Is at once a comical and a common
