To tho woman who would be Indi

In lb7l a oung Oxford undergradu

hiother, with tho despairing hopo that
lu tho highlands of Natal his lifo
would be piolonged,
Two jo.um later ho had been re
stored to health. He had laid tho
foundation of a meteoric career that
has won for England tho south halt
of the African continent and gained it
unique placo In the history of tho
Honuinci! has been outclassed by tho
life ot Cecil Hhodes. There was no
project too great for hla aniblMon and
ho ilrinly believed lu tho maxim that
"a man can get nnythliiK ho wants. If
he only wants It enough. Tho great
struggle now going on lu Soutu Africa
Is tho direct outconio of his gigantic!
plans for the overthrow of all control
save that of England, nnd the weld
ing together of the InhabltanUi under
the Union Jack. Ho lived to seo the
vision almost teallzed.
One of tho most gigantic railway
schemes ever thought of was the
Cape to Cairo railway, which Mr.
Hhodes detci mined to construct. 1IU
wonderful poworn woro exerted on
Kaiser William of flermnny, who,
after a conference with him, gave per
mission to build tho road over a part
of tho Herman possessions In Afrlet.
No other opposition of importance hai
been met. Tho road Is projected to
run through the Interior of tho conti
nent. Hlvers must ho leaped, swamps
drained, morns&c.i mndo solid, and
mountains bored through. Hostile
tribes and deadly climates havo to bo
overcome. Hhodes estimated that
oO.OOO lives wuuld bo sacrificed in tho
construction. It would rcqulro an
army of C00.00O workers. Rhodes'
tianscontlncntal telegraph lino is oven
now being built.
Mr. Rhodes was born July 7, 1853.
He was ono of soven brothers. His
father was it country parson, Itov.
Francis William Hhodes, nt ono tlmo
vicar of Hlshop Stortford, Hertz.
The man who controlled tho des
tinies of Africa and who has been
cnlled the most nctlvo mnn In tho
world, never had tlmo to get married.
For all that ho was a highly polished
man and shono in woman's society. It
may be that with a wlfo his gigantic
plans would havo sunk to the cares ot
the family man nnd tho rourso of his
tory might hnvo been changed by ho
slight u cause.
When the two brothers arrived in
Natal they first went on a cotton plan
kit Ion. Then tho rush to tho diamond
llelds of Coleshurg kopje, now known
as Klmberley, began, nnd tho young
men went to tho mines and laid out
As a miner young Rhodes swung tho
pick and dabbled in the blue mud
for diamonds. In a surprising short
time he won health and fortune, too.
With health and strength tho ideas
of tho dreamer became widened.
Wealth to him was but a means by
which to rise to higher things'. Hut
it was absolutely necessary.
Ho secured a majority of tho Block
of tho great Do HeerB mine, with its
$1,000,000 capital. Other properties
were secured until at last every mine
in the Klmberley district was united
in tho De Heers Consolidated, with a
capital of $20,000,000 and a revenuo
that has been phenomenal.
The English government had not
been called into Ids plnns thus far.
Meantime Rhodes was establishing his
political influence nt Cape Colony. Ho
secured the complete conlldenco of Sir
Hercules Robinson, the governor. Ho
impressed him with tho boundless
prospectH ahead In thu settlement of
