Excerpt from Children of the Kalahari: A Story of Africa

Some of these huts - that is, the more preten tious of them, those of the chief, his family, and of the head-men of the village - are built of boards rudely sawn from the forest; but the majority of them are of poles closely and ingeniously covered over with thick grass. Those built of boards have square walls and circular roofs, but all the others preserve their dome-shaped form throughout.

In the centre of the village and fronting on two sides of the broad street, which here makes a curve around it, is the kotla, or place of public assembly, a somewhat imposing structure fully seventy-five feet square, and built upon upright posts with cross-beams closely thatched with straw. At each corner grows a magnificent banian tree, which makes a pleasant shade all about it.

Near the kotla and facing one of the side streets stand the church and school-house of the station, and some one hundred and fifty or two hundred yards farther on, and higher up the slope of the hill, is the residence of the missionary.
