RHODES TOMB. WITHIN A CHARMED CIRCLE. Mr. Herbert Baker. who carried out Ko manv of Mr. Rhodes' architectural and artis- tic deisms, writes: "As there appears to be but little knowledge of the nature of the site of Mr. Rhodes' rock-tomb, a short de- scription may heln the public- to realise it. The famous indaba with the Mata- bele chiefs was held at the eaze of the Matoppo Mountains. 'The World's View' is about ten miles in the recesses of them. Thp mountains consists of an endless sea of hills, some quite precioi- tous. some rocky, and some smooth. pointless cones of solid rock. Between are forests and hiph waving grass, which in Winter takes hues of crimson and gold, such as are rarelv seen in South Africa. On the top of one of the lareest waves of this ocean of granite konies is a circle or some six or seven giant monoliths, stained with PTeen and orange lichen: a Dru'idical circle it wouM be called in Eneland. and seems nlaN>t1 there bv the hand of Nature for the bnrial-place of great men. The monument commemorating the Matabele War and the conquest of the countrv will be built inst outside this natural monol'thic portico, rising ont of the prefiTti- tous rock. down which solid stepa will be hewn, ns at the ArroDoMs of Athens. Within the charmed circle Mr. Rhodes' simple tomb will be."
