MRS. FRAaER'S STORY. In her own cosy drawing-room at St. Kilda, Mrs. Fraser explained to a "Herald" representative the motives which had led her to form her project, and the facts on which she relied for her ability to successfully carry it out. Naturally he was amazed that a slight and graceful woman should have de liberately made up her mind to under take a mission fraught with dangers and difficulties which might well appall the bravest and most reckless man. But, as Mrs. Fraser went on, speaking in the pretty Devonshire accent, which is in itself a charm, the "Herald" nian, by no means prone to be sympathetic, became .convinced that however wild the scheme might seem, Mrs. Fraser was at least thoroughly convinced in her own mind of its possibility; and that if there is one woman in Australia fitted to carry it out, that woman is Mrs. Fraser. "I formed the idea," she said, "that I might be of some assistanos from reading the accounts of the war, and of the slaughter among our bra...

One of the Gordons had his arm amputated; a Boer in the next bed had his arm taken off in exactly the same place. I took charge of the latter as he was brought from the theatre, and on his becoming conscious the two poor fellows eyed each other very much, till our good-natured Tommy could bear it no longer. 'Sister,' he called, 'give him two cigarettes out of my box, and tell him I sent them. Here is a match; light one for him.' I took the cigarettes and the message to the Boer, and he turned and looked at Tommy in amazement, and then, quite over come, he burst into tears, and Tommy did the same, and I am, afraid I was on the point of joining in the chorus. but time would not permit." taking itself for the entire procession.
