THE BOERS AND KHAKI. A special correspondent of the Exchange Telegraph Company, writing from Cape Town, under date November 15, says: The existence of khaki has immensely enraged the Boers, especially at headquarters, where alone its use was known and understood, and I am told on unim- peachable authority that when the campaign was opened the various Boer commandants were in- structed that the abuse of the flag of truce was a legitimate set-off to the khaki blind—that they were to kill all the British they were able to, honestly if they could, but kill them somehow. There have been many instances of personal valour and devotion, one of which I append. It oc- ourred when the 5th Dragoon Guards were sent during the engagement at Ladysmith to the relief of the Imperial Light Horse; Which Corps had got, into a tight place. A trooper's horse had been shot under him, arid the man's plight was seen by Lieutenant the Hon. Ralph Pomerov, who fode back and waited under heavy fire till the trooper could mount behind him; when he rode out with the man, both escaping. The Ladysmith Hospital comprises the town hall and several of the churches, these buildings having been placed at the disposal of the military authori- ties, and there is, in addition, a number of tents in use. One of the patients, a young Gordon, with particularly bright eyes and a smiling face, told me how he was wounded by a rifle shot received in the knee at the very moment when the Gordons saw the victory was theirs. The knee, he said, was difficult to heal when some of the bone were shattered as his was, and he was afraid he would bedetained some time in the hospital. Have you any idea of bone-heal- ing ?" he asked; for I'm not to lie here. I want another slap at them. There's to be a big fight some day, and I want to be in it."
