Amusing Native Letters. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 7 May 1914

Amusing Kative Letters. Correspondence clerks usually have | a fund of funny stories of peculiar I letters addressed to business firms. Many of the letters received by com mercial houses in South Africa are particularly amusine;, as a large percentage of their "country or ders" are from natives in all parts of the suh-Continent. Some of them are highly educated at the various native colleges, and their letters are flourishing, elaborutelv worded affairs-: while others in dis tant territories are yet almost in their "raw" state, with just the little knowledge of English which .the missionaries have been able to I teach them. They all send orders to the town stores, and the ittcom pauying letters often cause a smile round the olliue. A KaMir "hoy" had sent an order to a large firm, but the enclo sure was missing. He was duly noti fied that the order would ho held over ponding the arrival of the money-order. Unci .'nine a letter which was certain.v to the point. "You say I didn't s»nd ...

A Uganda Rubber Estate. I am on a codec and rubber es tate in Uganda. The other raorn " ing when 1 went to send the na tives so their various duties for the day," I saw that there was some thing the matter, as the men did not- get hold of their tools and go oil to their allotted place on the 4 plantation. At last one of them (who had been chosen as spokes man) came rorward, and said that they all refused fo work unless a certain man, who had only been set to work, the day before, was sent away. T learned that the man in question had somehow been credited with having the power to make a person ill or even of killing him, by simply willing it. It so happened that a native em- J . pjoyed by us had died the night previously, and, of course, this per son with the evil reputation wits blamed. We argued with the men, out they were firm Either he must >;o or they all would go. The ''Situation was ridiculous, but the work had to he dune, and the strik ers eventually had their way.

Caledonian Society SECRETARY'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 7 May 1914

SECRETARY'S REPORT. Mr. .President and Gentlemen,—With a Society such as ours an annual re port is really uncalled for because nothing eventuates during the year, except our annual gatnering, with the success, or otherwise, of which our members become conversant at the time of holding. But this year, as our gathering was held in aid of the local P.A.M. Hospital, it may per haps be considered that a report is necessary, and then it is only with the financial part that those interest ed are concerned, and this the Treas urer will make clear in his report. It is to bo regretted that we go from one New Year's Day to the next with out any' re-union. However, it can be safely stated that our efforts in celebrating Scottish traditions dur ing the past year, which really means on New Year's Day, were as success ful an in previous years. At the sug gestion of the Treasurer, whose whole object in doing so was to try. to win more public sympathy and assist ance in the carrying out of of our sp...
