      THE TROOPS FOR SOUTH AFRICA
      Of the 1000 men wanted for service in South Africa 260 have now been enrolled, 88 having passed all the tests yesterday. Details of separate testing carried out yesterday are as follows; Out of 113 submitted to the doctor 94 passed. Out of 76 sub- mitted to the firing test 74 passed. Out of 84 sub- mitted to tho riding test 78 passed. The class of men offerng is, in the opinion of the military authotitles, a great improvement on the type available at the last recruiting for the war. The true bushmen are now coming forward and their quality may be judged to some extent by the high percentage of passes in riding and firing. During the remainder of the week considerable further arrivals of volunteers are expected from the country The following addi- tional provisional enrolments were announced in a camp order issued last night, the men being posted to companies as noted :-
