The winter is there the dry season
and the summer the rainy season,
though excepting near the coast the
rainfall of ihe whole year is rather
scanty. Throughout most of the Trans-
vaal the midwinter months of July and
August are practically rainless .the fall
amounting to only a small fraction of
an Inch. September, too, is unusually
dry. Hut with the advance of spring,
in October and November, the rainfall
rapidly increases, and when, after
Christmas, summer sets in there is a
'copious supply of from four to six
Inches per month. In the whole year
about "tie day to six is rainy. Ther

have volunteered to flglit
against Great Bri'ta'n. No large rein-
forcements fr, r i the Transvaal or the
< range Free State can be looker for by
the Boer commanders of the attacking j
column, for, as we have previously
said, a certain proportion ot levies will
have to be kept at home for the main-
tenance of order among the aboriginies
und the necessity of such d< teniion is
emphasized by 4he rumors of uprisings
on the part of the Basutos, Swazls and
^ulus, although it Is, as yet uncertain
wh'ch side the natives will take.
When the army corps and the 25,000
reserves of the regular army which
have been called out, shall reach the
Cape these with the regular troops al-
ready there and the Anglo-American
contingent expected, will give Sir Red-
vers Puller a force nearly double that
at the disposal of the Boer command-
ed. In his turn, however, he may be
constrained to detach a considerable
part of h!s army for garrison and police
duty im the Ctipc Colony and this de-
duction from his ostensible strength
will be greatly augmented should the
apprehended rising oc* ur among the
Afrikanders of that colony, who num-
ber some 300.000. The embodiment of
the mil tiu and the calling out of the
militia reserves in the United Kingdom
is, undoubtedly a measure of precau-
tion against th\at contingency. The
demonstration tan hardly be intended
for a warning to the European powers
not to intervene in England's quarrel,
for the Britiish militia have no terrors
for the vast standing armies of the
continent. Moreover in the event of an
