COLONEL J. S. COLLINS, who commands the let. Battalion of the Queens, has been offered the Battalion of the Queens, has be6n offered the command in the Belgaum district of India in succes- sion to Sir R. C. Hart, who so distinguished himself in the Afghan, Egypt (1882), and Tirah campaigns. Colonel Collins, who has been thirty years in the Army, fought through the Burmese War of 1886-8, and afterwards brought himself into great prominence by his soldierly qualities and personal bravery dur- ing the fighting in the Malakand country. He also went through the Tirah campaign, in connection with which he was specially mentioned in dispatches and promoted in the service. Colonel Collins is one of the most popular officers in the Army, and there ought to be a great future before him. DR. KOSTER, the Boer officer, who was killed at Eland's Laagte, was a fairly proficient writer of Pit- man's shorthand, and could take a copious note in English. At one time he had an idea of adapting this system to the Dutch lauguage for reporting pur- poses, and in a painstaking fashion experimented with it. But he foupd phonography unsatisfactory in the extreme, and dropped the notion. He was a great admirer of the personality of the late Sir Isaac Pitmaui and expressed the notion that the phonotypy introduced by the worthy knight was the bumpiest fashion by which any foreigner could matter the pro* liunciation of English.
