When England ruled the Transvaal [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 October 1899

When .England ruled the Transvaal^ tfiE stoky of how the* Transvaal wAi annexed to the British Empirb SO years ago ia particularly interesting just ndw, and it is cUrious, in the light of later events, to read how what is now the South African Republic was for four shott yeats under the Union Jack. It is' one of thB ro mances of the Empire. We owe the story to Cetewayo. Bat for the 2ulu King the Union Jack would never have waved over the Boer country, the Boers, who are human enough, At any rate, to hate rates and taxes, had brought their country to the verge of bankruptcy. Its exchequer wan - empty; its Army was all but useless J" the natives were rising in revolt; and the country was threatened with a Zulu invasion. Cetewayo wis ift the the height of his power—the British army had not yet scattered his forces. The king complained that the Boers were constantly encroaching on his frontier, and he gathered his men to gether to fight the last great fight—to wipe the Boers out of exis...

VOLUNTEER NURSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 October 1899

VOLUNTEER NUKSES. According to General French, if all the women who have offered to go tc the Transuaal as nurses were accepted there would be one for every soldier, No doubt this would add to the pic nickiug pleasantry of the enterprise, but at the same time the order is a somewhat large one for a, prosaic Gov ernment, in which the spirit of m mance can hardly be predominant ovei that of getting money for necessary roads and bridges. It is hard enough luck for Mr. Lyne in his very first financial year to have to take money from a pinched Treasury to redrett the grievances of Rand script-holdere in London, Paris, and Berlin, without having this additional expense thrust on him. Nevertheless, as far as the would-be nurses are actuated bj motives of philanthropy, they deserve every encouragement.' It is a noble impulse which prompts a woman to leave her comfortable home for the sake of ministering to sick Btrangers. And there is no reason whatever why it should be thwarted through ina...

The Thronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, OCTOBER, 20 1899. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 October 1899

%h Cfrnntrck For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that tee can do. Cobabqo, Friday, October, 20 1899. We make every allowance for the buoyancy of spirits which invariably accompanies the period of youth— especially in the male portion of ihe population. And we are prepared to concede to the young men a full measure of the joys inseparable from (and appropriately so) the springtime of life. But our recreation should be of a rational character and leavened with a fair proportion of in tellectual , practices. The public schools of the colony are planted at our very doors, and, as a result, educa cation—the greatest civilising factor —is brought within the reach of the humblest. .Every year thousands of boys leave school with, the inspector's certificate that they have been educa ted to the standard required by the Act. So far so good. But, after all, the foundation is but laid, and our boys or young men s...

NOTES ON THE TRANSVAAL SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 27 October 1899

ON THE TRANSVAAL SITUATION. (By 'Rooinek' in the D.T.) The tide of war has fairly started in South Africa. It flows from out the Boer Republics over the fertile up lands of Natal and the far-stretching sun-baked Karoo ,on the western Boer frontiers. As yet,' the "affaire" have been unimportant outpost skirmishes. In Natal, although the British posi tions at Glcncoe and Ladyemith are said to be menaced by the presence of two large Boer armies, very little real anxiety is being manifested. It is felt that the 20,000 troops under General Sir George White's command in that colony will enable him to conduct suc cessful defensive operations until the arrival of additional forces from Eng land. Probably, Sir George thinks he has quite sufficient force at his disposal to attempt offensive measures, but General Bailer is more than likely to have strictly forbade any forward British movement until his arrival in South Africa. He is due to arrive at Capetown on November 2, and it would be anot...

The Bull Fights at Boulogne. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 27 October 1899

The Bull Fights at Bpulogne. WjtBoGt being able to concar in the Daily News sweeping condemnation of bull fighting as a w hole! I am quite willing to believe that the variety now drawing over thousands of Englishmen every Sunday to Boulogne is " a bane and degrading show.' Personally I confets to seeing the real thing in Ma drid some time ago, and to being in tensely excited and in no way shocked. The final struggle between the bull and the matador was tremendous, life against life. One knew if a man's long and glittering blade failed to bury itself in the bull's spine that in an in stant he would le impaled on his cruel horns and fiying through space. The Boulogne show would seem to be a sordid and comparatively feeble business. The glamour of Spain is wanting, and the bulla are often weak and incapable. The Daily 'News man (admittedly prejudiced) thus describes the scene :—" Look', he says, " at the exercise as one it saw on this smoking Sunday afternoon. All the spectators are se...
