A PEEP AT THE BOER WAR MAKERS. WHO IS REALLY RESPONSIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 9 January 1900
A PEEP AT THE BOER WAR &nbsp; MAKERS. WHO IS REALLY RESPONSIBLE. An Afrikander, writing to an ex- change, under date Sea Point (Cape Colony), November 6, asks: - Who is really responsible for the war? What are the main factors that have brought about this terrible state of affairs? I make the following statement with- out hesitation, having lived and laboured among the Boers all my life, and knowing the true inwardness of Pretoria and everyone of its ramifica- tions. It was not President Kruger. He has only sullenly acquiesced in extreme measures. The President has greatly aged of late; he is almost decrepit, and suffers from inflamed eyes (tinkered with by various American and local quacks) : he has other physical troubles too. The continual illness of Mrs. Kruger has also weakened him. The eccentricities of his favourite son, Tjaard Kruger, have given him many a bad quarter of an hour. All these things have combined to weaken his once strong character, and since the depart...

Now that so much attention is be ing paid to the important problem of ridding land of the charlock pest, the following particulars by the eminent professor of agriculture, W. G.

CHAPTER XXXV. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 January 1900
CHAPTER XXXV. Horror-struck by the discovery, Ericson drew Dolores away from the secret entrance. They had no need of words. The story proclaimed itself. Whoever had planned this robbery must have had complete knowledge of the old house, and made his way by the secret stair way to its mistress's bedchamber in order to accomplish his crime. In all probability she had awakened at the noise of the opening partition, and he had strangled her for fear of alarm. The work of robbery complete, he had made his return by the same method. Here surmise had to play the part of detective, and prove by inference what was impossibleiof other proof. Dur ing his absence the stairs long unused and probably undermined by damp and decay had fallen away, leaving this huge gap, yawning for the criminal's unsuspecting feet. He had never thought of looking before ' him, but plunged head foremost into the chasm, and either injured or killed himself by the fall. The jewel box had fallen open; its contents lay...

I The interest in the game was well sps i tamied on both greens during the (week, a goodly number turning up to practice every evening, and a few rounds of the club matches-were got through. On the N.T.C.A. green, in. the Handicap Singles, Johnstone beat W. Martin by 21-18. The game at the start was very one-sided, Johnstone scoring 24 points to Martin's 6; but the latter apparently wanted to - have a say in the game, as be gradually gained on Johnstone, and was lying game with three good ones in when last year's champion came along with a beauty and - drew the shot. Martin failed to score in the next end, leaving Johnstone victor, he having scored 33 to 23. D. A. Scott beat Weetman very easily. B The loser at no period of the game showed anything like form. He seemed to be s driving the whole time, Instead of playing f his usual steady game. The game between Rooke and Whitaker was very exciting for two-thirds of the r distance, the scores reading 15 all. Fro...
