The Transvaal Defense.
Wherever the Transvaal fron
tier touches the British terri
tory on the south side, nature
has raised a barrier difficult to
cross. The Boers thus have a
signal advantage in position for
the conduct of a defensive cam
paign. The plateau on which
their big farms and gold mines
lie is 4,500 to ,5,000 feet above
the sea and slopes quite abruptly
to the plain. The mountains
rising from this low plain have
'riven to a part of Natal and ad
joining districts in Cape Colony
the name of "the Switzerland of
South Africa," though their tops
scarcely rise above the summit
of the plateau. Through de
nies among these mountains and
up the slope of the plateau front
rise the two or three roads by

pass between the Transvaal and
Natal where on a memorable
day, the Boers lay behind nearly
every boulder along the narrow
road and poured a murderous
tire into the long, straggling
line of British soldiers who
vainly tried to reach the summit.
