THE BEVERAGE OF THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 January 1900
THE BEVERAGE OF THE PEOPLE. Let us glance at the ordinary break fast beverages of the people. Tea, even if properly infused, is only a stimulant. It is not a nourishing beverage, and as usually decocted is washy, trashy, and deletorious. Coifee, even when of. the best, and prepared in perfection as you will find in the East, where Mahommedans are forbidden by their religion to use al cohol, is only a cardiac or heart stimu lant. It increases for a short time the power of that organ without being in any sense of the word a nourishing beverage. Cocoa.-The ordinary cocoa is not by any means a -nourishing beverage. Its good qualities either in the Eng lish or foreign varieties are smothered in starch and sugar that induce and promote indigestion. Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa'is a nourishing beverage, containing four great re storers of vitality, Cocoa, Kola, Hops, and Malt. It stands out as a builder up of tissues, a promoter of vigour and in short it has all the factors which make robust heal...

THE SHELLS FELL RAPIDLY [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 January 1900
THE SHELLS FELL RAPIDLY On the left side of the roadway, and even among the transport wagons, but happily they did not burst. The situation, however, was extremely dangerous, and the oflicers ordered the suen first to the right hand of the roadway and ultimately right into the fields. At this point TIHINGS WERE CRITICAL. We were all running a few yards and then falling flat on the ground as the shells came hissing along. To add to the conifusion, some Boers with Man sers got on the rocks on our flank and opened fire, but their shots fell soni& what short, although the ricochet of the bullets, as they bounded along,with their ominous sound, was, to say the least, disagreeable. Ultimately we got over the brown hill and were comparatively safe, although shells still hovered around our heads. Some three miles out of Molteno the Boer fire ceased, and the column, strag gling along, REACHED MOLTENO SAFELY, After cne of the hardest and most dis astrous pieces of work in the annals o...

ADDITIONAL DETAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 January 1900
ADDITIONAL DETAILS. When the attack was made by the Highland Brigade it was met by the most terrible cross fire it is possible to imagine. The whole hill 'suddenly blazed forth with musketry. It was still very dark, though the first streaks of a grey morning were beginning to appear. The Boer signalmen announced to the enemy the approaching presence of our troops by flashing a lantern in their faces. The Gordons, who ad vanced later on with great dash, spread themselves out over a wide area, utilis ing every inch of cover. They reso lutely went forward, firing steadily and coolly, and thus they crept to within a close distance of the enemy, and, finding a certain amount of shelter, they held their ground againot a heavy fire. The distinguished regiment added another laurel to Its long list of honours. - The honours of the day, however, be longed chiefly to the artillery. who dur ing the greater portion of the fight were constantly under a galling rifle fire. The gunners worked with ...
