AN ARTIST OF THE WAR.
AK INTERESTING INTERVIEW WITH
MR. MORTTMER-MENPES. 1
Battlra Are ‘•Played o*”—Goad
Storied About Rhodes, Hec
tor Mnol onu Ift. Hutljwrd Kiplius,
From the London News.
With the instinct for actuality which is
supposed to he possessed by the journal
ist alone. Mr Menpes, the well-known
painter, started for the battlefields of
South Africa on a portrait painting expe
dition. He arrived at the front in the
nick of time. The fortunes of war had
just begun to incline our way. He was at
Paardoberg and Poplars Grove; he en
tered Klmberle-y on the heels of French;
accompanied Pole-Carew and the Guards
Brigade on Lord Roberts* famous march
to Bloemfontein; saw lots of fighting
wont round to have a look at Ladysmith,
and got sittings from Sir Alfred Milner,
'the busiest man in Africa,” on his way
home. Here he is, in his wonderful Ja
panese house in Cadogan Gardens, with
hundreds of sketches of all sorts in his
studio, upon which he is now at work for
an autumn exhibition which should draw
the town. What strike® one in listening
to this enterprising artist’s stories of his
adventures is the agreeable complaisance
of his distinguished sitters, and the time
they were good enough to give him amid
the thundering? of the battlefields.
“Well, what is a battle like, Mr Met
pes?” I asked the painter. “Disappoint
ing; one man and a puff of smoke. The
pictures in London of shells bursting and
nand-to-hand fighting are very fine; but.
well, never mind, from the painter’s point
of view the battle is played out.” The
painter, nevertheless, gave me a most ex
iting verbal picture of the rear-guard
action which the flying Boers fought at
Poplars Grove. After ttae affair at Paard
eberg, French, with the cavalry, pursued
the flying Boers, and was almost success
ful in oatching Kruger and Stevn. The
action was watched on the top of a high
kopje by Lord Roberts. Lord Kitchener.
Sir Hector Macdonald, wlnh the staff Our
painter had also secured a good place,
and hance got some fine impressions. He
says it was one of the prettiest sights
imaginable, to see first French circling
around the Foers. and then the Boers
circling around French. “The finest
thing I ever sow. - ’ said that fine soldier.
Macdonald. “The Boers are splendid.”
Then he described how “Bobs" was the
eooleat man on the kopje, the only sign
of excitement he showed being the
scratching of the quick of one finger with
the tip of another. Lord Kitchener had a
cigarette in his mouth, which he chewed
nervously between his clenrhed teeth, but
never smoked, for it was out. All the time
the telegraph was kicking, men were
dashing hither and thither, and the naval
1.7 was banging away at the foot of the
kopje. How the time sped they knew by
the sounding of the bell which the blue
jackets had improvised on a tripod of
boughs. In the middle of the kopje was
the sp’endid telescope which the Lord
Mayor sent to the front. It was in requi
sition every moment by someone, and
gave a fine view of friend and enemy.
“Bobs” nnl Hls Portrait.
At the front they all call it a “one-man
show.’’ “Bobs ’ is the man. Nevertheless,
he pave Mr. Menpes several sittings. “I
must apo’ogize for my intrusion when th>
whole world is looking at you, my lord.’’
said the painter when he was marched
into the Commander-In-Chief’s room at
B'oemfontein—Mr. Steyn's cld apartment
—and was confronted with the little man
—“all steel, lithe, every nerve palpitating
wl*h life, at his aspe!” “Not at all,” re
plied “Bobs;” “It’s a privilege you’re con
ferring ' What a kindly gentleman he
must be, this man of war. Kindly, court
eous, considerate While the painter was
at work thev chatted about various
things. The talk got back to Paardeberg,
ard Mr. Menpee happened to say that he
hid iiaintfd Cronje. “And Mrs. Cronje?”
asked Lord Rober a, simply. “No, no.’’
an*w’er®d the painter, smiling; “Mrs.
Cronje did not lend herself to decorative
treatment.” “Ah,” returned Roberts; ‘I
don’t think the prettiest woman in the
wo r ld would aft r r three days in those
tranches!’’ T*he comedy of war Ls well il
lustrated by this little aside. In the m'd
d’e of the sitting Lord Kitchener came in
with a scout, ho‘. covered with dust and
dirt, and almost panting for breath.
Kitchener took Roberts aside, and while
they were talking in low. hurried tones,
the scout stood at attention by the side
of a marble Venus on a pedestal. Despite
the awful pres nee of the two great men,
the 7 ady fascinated him. and even while
Rchers henring his very important
rows do what he would, th* comer of
the eye nearest Venus would turn that
way. However, Lord Roberts was too en
grossed to notice it. or goodness knows
what the consequences would have be?n.
Mr. Rhodes I.lkes Wart* nnd All.
When the artist be?ged Mr. Rhodes to
sit © him (Long Tom hnd only just giv-n
In—the city had only Just be*n relieved)
be said: “Oh. I don’t mind, but full fac e
—full face No profiles! I am a pa n.
blurrt man. and I like to look people full
in the face. That man Ftl-dos.” (such i
fame! Fancy pronouncing the distinguish
ed Academician’s name as a dissyllable,)
“now. began a portrait of me In profile—
wanted to show one side of my face. Das
tardly, I call it 1 say thru no henest

As for Fildes* portrait, I presume it was
Mr. Meiue* was a little frigh’ened by
this outburst, but he soon got on fairly
easy term® with the dictator, who asked
Ms o. inion of his face from a painter's
point of view. Mr. Menpca had already
made up his mind what the “note” was,
and said at once; “I am surprised 1 y its
boyi*hne& ” “Ah, that's 1,” returned Mr.
Rhodes. “Boyishness—dreamer. Yfs, yes.
that’s what I am—a dreamer—imagina
tive. romantic.” Ttmn some thought
crossed his bram. he touched the bell, and,
like a streak of lightning, a secretary ap
peared :”€k>-and-fco when will tho c e ten
thousand trees lie de’ivered?” “In six
weeks’ time. Mr. Rhodes.” “Thev must
be here in two weeks. Put two thousand
more men on the job at <m~e.” So dd
Monte Cr*sto talk to hi-* people The e
you have Mr. Rhodes full face—the dr*am
or and th*- shrewd man of action in on •.
and each In profile.
Mr. Menis full of sfortes he heard
about Rhodes worship. The bitterest pro-
Boer cannot but have r sneaking regard
for a man who is the subject o-f this little
pretty tale: “Oh, Mr. Rhodes,” sighed u
poor feUtlw down with enteric; “oh. what
■would I 46*vo for a drop of milk!” (then
■woWh £5 a drop.) "Umph!” replied Mr.
Rhode*, in hi# grim, gruff way, “Umph!”
and he w*mt nwy umpiling. The next
day tie cam© again, and after a few words
slouched out. and nervously left a tiny
medicine bottle on the corner of the table.
“Oh, I do love Mr. Rhode*.” said the sick
man. “See what he’s brought me—lt’s
milk.” And so it was—value unknown.
Long Tom nnd the IlnirdreMMer.
When Mr. Menpes was busy in Kimber
ley he used to go and get shaved at a
barber’s adjacent to the club. This bar
ber told him an amusing story, which il
lustrates the moral effect of Long Tom
admirably. Said the barber, busy with
his razor: "Well, it’s like this (in reply
to questions) “when the small gims were
firing into the towm and the bullets came
thJi way, my customers used all to fly
under the counter there, and left me
standing with my razor. But when Tom
began business—well, I used to go with
mty customers, too. Tom was a regular
’‘Fighting Mac** and the Sweet*.
Mr. Menpes was also successful in &e-
curing sittings from these two redoubta
< ble warriors, though both of them were
f very shy of the palette. They would rather
face a Boer any day. ’ French was ex
tremely nervous under the ordeal, and at
: one or two points he even ran away and
! hid himself behind a newspaper. “The
shyest sitter I ever had,” exclaimed
painter, “but charming.” The famous
cavalry General wa.s highly amused at
the fancy pictures of him which reached
him from London town. Sir Hector was
easier, and talked freely. You oan-not call
him a pro-Boor, but they have no keener
admirer of their fighting qualities. What
6iruck Mr. Menpes about this self-made
General was his dislike of luxury. When
all the officers were enjoying the compar
ative luxury of Bloemfontein, he stuck to
his tent outside. H* \ referred to rough it
on the ground. He gave Mr goo 1
illustration of the enormous difficulties of
the intelligence deprTTKn? durirg the
war. “I’ll to-ll you what it is,” said he,' in
his soldierly way. “I trust nobody' in
Bloemfontein—rot men—cerTa-inly not wo
men. The children are the only saf* draws.
What I do is to stuff my pockets full of
sweets, go out for a walk, and talk to ;
ihe children. Th**y tell yen the!r ,
papas have gone.’’ Then he went on to ;
compare fighting in South Africa w.th
fighting in the Soudan. In the Soudan it '
wa.s child’s play—easy country—no enemy. J
Hete a fearful country and a brilliant
enemy. “New, hew far do you think that 1
kopje is off?”—pointing to a hillock whidh !
appeared quite close, but which was really
some miles off. Mr. M< npes was aware of
the denrp'ive nature of the country, and
said so. ’Well,” continued Sir Hector,
“you would think it was an easy thing
for me to take my brigade there, wouldn t
you? And it looks flat country between
us. doesn’t it? Yet ten thousand Poers
could conceal themselves in ih?t wavy
“But war is too horrible.” exclaimed
Mr. Monpes. “I shall never forget the
march to Bloemfontein with Gen. Pole-
Carew. rightly railed ihe handsomest man
in the aimy. 1 shall fnrgit hia kind
ness to me. The sight of the dying hor.-es
and mu'es which we wf re compel'e-d to i
leave behind will never be ob’Lerated j
from my memory. They would 1 ok up at j
you wiih their pathetic eyes as much as j
to say. “Oh, do ki 1 mr; don’t have me to
the vultures.’ They were wheeling round
and round th*n. hut there wasn’t even
time to cut their poor throats.”
\ Iwinquet on the Veldt.
Mr. Menpes describes the difficulties of
locomotion with much humor, and now
that he is back egain to the dinners of
his own crook, and those at the fashiona
ble restaurants of the capital, he looks
bark with a melancholy pleasure at his
experiences. A man who lunches on a
<larte, a banana, and a glass of water a>
horrv\ though, is really almost case-hard
ened Nrvertheb as, a biscuit and a quar
ter'. a spoonful or two of bouilli, a few
beastly meat lozenges, and tinned com
pounds gvt me. Sometimes, by way
of a treat, he dined with some general
in a captured Boer wigon, with biscuit
tins for seats, and the floor for a table.
Even then the menu was not de luxe-a
drop of soup, no bread, one biscuit, a
slice of hard meat, a grain pudding, and
a tas’e of whisky and water. Then there
was the going home in the dark. On one
of these festive occasions Mr. Menpes
had to cross the Modder after midnight,
his own cart bring over the water. The
pontoon was soon on the way. but—bob.
bob. thud—a dead Boer in a frock coat
had banged into them. A few yards more
—thud, thud—more dead Boers What
dreams the belated reveller must have
had! “Ah,” he exclaimed, “how well I
remember secreting two potatoes about
my person—and eating ihttn by stealth
to prevent envy.”
When he was painting Mr. Rhodes,
they discussed art and gardening. Mr.
Menpes had visited his gardens at Cape
Town, and the first question Mr. Rhodes
asked was how they looked. Mr. Menpes
oongra tula ted him on the artistic way in
w’hich he had grouped his flowers in
great clusters, and amused him by con
trasting this big way of gardening with
the bock garden of poor London subur
bia. It is not surprising to hear that a
man who thinks in continents should
complain that his wild beasts in his com
pound at the Cape are skimped for room
to room in. “They w'ant acres,” he cried
—"acres—and n marble platform to walk
on. You can’t see ’em now’.” Then he
went on to describe the Siege Avenue
which Is being put in hand to commem
orate the sdge of Kimberley. It is to be
a mile long; there wdll be room for four
in-hands to drive through it; it will be
mainly an avenue of vines, which will
form an arched vault of grateful shade,
on either side will be rows of pepper
trees, orange trees, and eucalyptus, the
’est on the outside to protect its tenderer
comrades. In the center will rise a
beautiful monument of marble columns,
each holding a sphinx. The only ques
tion which perturbed Mr. Rhodes was
w’hether the clustered columns should be
roofed or open to the winds of heaven.
Time will settle it. But it will be a big
thing, be sure, when Mr. Rhodes has
done with it. He has a fruit farm near
Cape Town. He ordered a village to be
built for the Kaffrs. It w’as built, and he
come to see it. He come, he saw. he was
pleased. ”1 like it,” he said. “Build an
other.” That was nil.
Rhodes and Kipling.
Mr. Menr°s tells a good story of Rhodes
nnd Kipling. Rhodes was showing Kip
ling a view from his estate, when he
suddenly noticed three apple trees in the
way. Without a. word he rushed to a cot
rage. It was shut. The door was locked.
He burst it open. He seized an ax. He
out off the heads of the offenders. He re
turned to the great author: “There!
Now you can see- it!”—l. e.. the glorious
view*. The great author said no<hing. He
rushed down to the three, picked up an
old rag, hung it on a bleeding stump.
He returned to the side of his host.
“What the—what’s the meaning of that?”
said Mr. Rhodes. “For perfect beauty
you must hove a blot on the landscape.
That’s my blot.” “Oh!” growled Mr.
And there ended his first lesson.
Mr. Kipling’s head is still on.
Mr. Kipling swears that the future of
South Africa depends upon the camel.
Mr. Rhode** will have it that 14 is a ques
tion of grass. Camel grass grass
camel-ding dong the famoue pair went
at it. So the story goes.

Say* flic President Made a Direct
Promise and Tlroke It.
From the Philadelphia Times.
Washington, Aug. 4.—United States Sen
ator George L. Wellington, of Maryland,
Republican, has made a formal statement
of his attitude in the present campaign.
”1 am unalterably opposed to the re
election cf Pres.d-nt tycKinley. Bryan
is a better man in every way than Me
Kinley, and I regard his election as es
sential to the preservation of the republic.
"I regard the Philadelphia platform as
a grave departure from the faith of our
fathers. It is not the Republicanism of
Lincoln, but an indorsement of the ini
rrfial policies forced upon the country by
“I am an anti-imperialist. I do not talk
otip way in Congress and another way on
the outside; nor do I talk one way and act
another. 1 am not like old Hoar—able to
appeal to the past and the future, and
thtn stultify myself. I see only the pres
ent. The past is gone and the future can
care for itself, but I will help take care
of the present.
“1 am convinced there is a secret alli
ance with England beyond any doubt. You
remember the cry that was raised against
Cleveland of subserviency to England.
There was not one-quarter the ground for
it that there is for the same cry against
McKinley. He would not dare to do a
thing that w’ould be unacceptable to Eng
land, for he is nothing 'more than an
President lletrayecl Him.
"President McKinley has betrayed me.
I was opposed to the Paris peace treaty,
and would never have voted for its rati
fication of my own volition. I told the
President so, and he induced me to vote
for it by solemnly pledging me that it
was not the intention of himself or the
government to forcibly hold or perma
nently acquire the Philippines. He fur
ther said that his perosnal desire was to
restore law and order in the islands and
then submit the matter to Congress, with
the idea of having it grant absolute free
dom and self-government to the Filipinos.
With that pledge from President William
McKinley I voted for the treaty. Without
It l never should have done so.
“The resolution I offered in the Senate,
and w’hich w’as the basis of my speech on
the Philippine question, provided for ex
actly what the President himself told me
he desired to bring about.
“Bryan is absolutely right on the one
great issue involved in the campaign, and
with the money question at rest for four
years he is a bigger, a better and a safer
man than McKinley. Even if the money
question was not settled Bryan is n man
of too much sense to undertake to tam
per w’ith the currency.
"Bryan is certain to be our next
President, and I shall be glad to see him
“McKinley is totally unfit for the office
of President, because he is so weak and
vacillating that he cannot stick to an
opinion over night. It he could know his
own mind and he consistent for twenty
four hours at a time he might do, but
such a thing is impossible with him, and
for that reason he is unfit to be Presi
BOY’S FIGHT WITH A H*EIIOX.
\ Plucky StrnKf&le on Both Sides, In
Which the Bird Succumbed.
From the New York Times.
Danbury. Aug. 2.—Oliver Taylor, Jr.,
the 17-year-old son of a wealthy former
of Ball’s Pond, killed a monster blue heron
this morning after a struggle in which the
bird came near besting Us captor. He
was walking about h fish pond on his fa
ll.® > premises when the bi/d swooped
down from above and caught a flsh which
was sunning itself near the surface of the
Young Taylor, unable to resist the temp
tation. picked up a stone and threw it at
the bird, striking it on the breast. The
t heron dropped the flsh, and wheeling with
lightning-like rapidity, attacked the
youth. The onslaught was so sudden that
young Taylor had no opportunity to se
cure a club or other weapon with which
to defend himself, and he had only his
hands with which to tight off the fierce
rush of the bird.
With claws, beak, and wings, the bird
rained a shower of blows on the boy. His
clothes w'ere torn by the long talons, his
head was cut in many places by the
horny beak, and his face and body were
bruised by the wings, which the heron
used with tilling effect. Striking and
grasping wildly at the bird, young Tay
lor at last succeeded in catching it by Up
slender neck. When it felt the pressure
the bird fought more fiercely, but the
plucky boy squeezed with the strength of
desperation, and gradually the blows of
wings and claws became weaker, till the
heron fell limp on the ground. Young
Tnvlor did not release his hold until he
was sure the bird was dead.
Then he fell down on the ground beside
•he body of his plucky opponent, so
weakened by the conflict that he could
stand no longer. When he recovered his
strength he carried the bird to his hom*.
a short distance away, where it was found
to measure *lx feet across the wing* and
over four feet In hight.
