The marriage customs of these peo-
ple are quaint. They barter cattle fof
wives. The number of cattle in the
case depends upon the social position
the bride may hold. Honor in the
Zulu tribes can only be obtained by
self sacrifice and personality. The
young warrior is taught the best
means of obtaining it,--the way of
the warrior's ,plumes and spears.
At the beginning of the 19th century
the Zulus adopted a form of compul-
sory military service. Their leader,
Tschaka, "the Black Napoleon," es-
tablished a vast number of military
camps, waged war and conquered all
the neighboring tribes. Tschaka's
warriors went into battle in crescent
formation, the two tips converging
until the enemy was completely sur-
rounded and annihilated. No soldier
was allowed to live if he returned
from the battle field without blood on
his spear. To be executed as a coward
was a terrible disgrace for a man's
family and it is easy to imagine what
"pep" was instilled in the hearts of
the regiments.
Medicine and witchcraft are prac-
ticed among the natives. Herbs are
used in the formerand superstition in
the latter.
The Zulus believe in a super-being
who controls everything, yet they in-
dulge in no form of worship. One of
the most remarkable points about this
wonderful race is their high standard
of moral life, w~hich seems impossible
in the heart of polygamy.
