A Chance to "Sneak Something." [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 11 November 1899

A Chance to " Sneak Something." There have been indications regularly daring the past six months cr so that Mr. Chamberlain, in talking of Trans vaal matters, has been addressing others than the Boere. The desire that the Empire should show a united front at this juncture, and the expres sion of warm satisfaction that it did so, were somewhat mystifying to many iu view of the fact that the Mi*»j ugation of the Boers is not in itself a particu larly large order* But the people do not know what the Government know at these times of crises. There is wonderment occasionally at something done by the Imperial Government—or something apparently left undone— and it is only months after, when the affair is almost forgotten, that the ne cessity for the move, or for the inac tion, as the case may be, is made clear in a Blue Book. With Earl Salisbury at the head of affairs, it may be con eluded that the British foreign policy will be conducted on lines honorable to the Empire. As has been frequ...

DETERIORATION IN DANCING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 11 November 1899

DETERIORATION IN BANCING.j Have you noticed the deterioration in dancing within the last two or three 3'ears 7 I mean dancing at public. ball?. There is no doubt that dancirg generally is not what it *a». I am not at all hvporeriiicaWhen I &ay that the decadence is more marked amongst women than men. A few years ago one niight have gone through an entire programme without ., meeting with a really poor dancer; now such is far from being the case. This very largely accounts for the increasing number of wallflowers that mark pre sent-day danceB. It is very often a torture for a man to go through a waltz, and the average n.an after one tx| erience of the kind fights shy of the fair one—once bitten, twice shy. One of the reasons why fewer women dance so well as formerly is, I I elieve, that th°y now take to dancing later in life, and, even if placed under the care of a teacher, invarably fail to obtain the practice necessary to make them at least good dancers. The Sunday Times in...

I served under Baden-Powell all through the second Matabele war, and a real ' white man' he was When I first saw him he was a tall, spare roan of about 45, broneed and lean and hardy, with a stern soldiery eye that at 'once inspired confidence. He was growing slightly bald, but his heavy moustache was still black. He was chief of staff under Sir Frederick Car* rington, and he went up to Bulawayo and formed ' Baden-Powell's column.' He was an officer in whom the troops had implicit confidence, and they would follow him anywhere.

NAZARETTO CONVENT. (From our Bega Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 11 November 1899

NAZARETTO CONVENT (From our Bega Correspondent.) The pipils attending the Naz-iretto Convent, Bega, gave their annual en tertainment in aid of the funds of the Convent building in the old primary school on Thursday night last. There was a largo attendance, and doubtless the unpromising stale of the weather prohibited others.from attending ; but as it was, tho buildiug (which with its improvised' sfage aftd theatrical appur tenances somewhat.resembled a minia ture theatre) was comfortably filled. The stage was altogether too low for the occupants of the rear seats to get a good glimpse of. the proceedings. The entertainment commenced with the overture 'II Corricolo,' played on three pianos. The effect was most pleasing, the harmony being perfect. The vocal: chorus 'Gipsies' next en gaged the attention of the audience, and the manner in which it was ren dered betokened careful training. The third item on the programme, a violin quartette, showed that the Convent is not deficient in th...

Bis Honor Mr. Justice Boucnut, in commenting on the address, said that he had always had a high opinion of the newspaper preRS, bub after listening to the defence of the accused be had an even higher opinion of it, and he could only say that, if tbe j'ress developed such high qualities in all its reporters as those exhibited by defendant, he was sorry that he had not had the advantage of its training in his early life.

BRITISH REVERSES IN LITTLE WARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 11 November 1899

BRITISH REVERSES IN LITTLE WARS. Unfortunate as it was, the capitula tion of belated infantry and artillery, to the Boers during ttie battle of Lady smith is anything but an irreparable or final event. K either is the expe j&wice a new one to the Empire, |_^v*ph bas had to incur many misfor '"•Imfes to succeed in remote parts of the world. A very remarkable tea ture of Britain's minor wars is that nearly all of them have begun with British reversals. Whether this is ascribable to inadequacy of prepara tion, to want of familiarity with the country operated in, or to whatever other causes, it is hard to say. But there is the effect, Tihich is only to be accounted for in sott>e cases. Ob servers of the Empire's "little war" history will recall the defeats that we sustained in New Zealand, where the Maoris where found to be nnexpec tedly well-armed and tactically clever. In Afghanistan ' £0 years ago Sir Louis Cavagnari, his secretary, Mr. Jenkyns, Lieutenant Hamilton, Dr. Am...

"Evil to him who evil think." THEY SAY: [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 11 November 1899

" Evil to him mho evil think*." TBEY SAT: That Joubertfs protest against the des truction done by British lyddite shells on the score of inhumanity, is funny reading in the face of the facts that the Boess fired on the British ambulance corp3 and a con vent which was being used as a hoBpital. That thft N.S/W. police should talce care that the Wellesly outrage does not develop into a Gatton mystery—the clue being lost in a fog isn't re_-assuring. That the proposal to hold a mammoth ex hibition in 1901 is merely a Sydney device to draw money from the country to the city. That the few Sydney malcontents who, with the " frogeatevs" expressed satisfaction at the British reverse, should be hunted out of the colony to enjoy the " liberty" and *' free" institutions of Boerland or Dreyfus land.

LAW FOR SCHOOLBOYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 11 November 1899

LAW FOR SCHOOLBOYS. A STORY is told about a certain late Minister of Public Instruction—not the last- one, we may say—who hap pening to visit a public school in one of our country towns during an official tour, was interviewed by the terfcher. In the coarse of their conversation the teacher remarked that he thought the "curriculum was very defective," andt before he had time to specify the par ticular defects he had in his mind's eye, the Minister, who was in a hurry to get away, cut him short by saying, "Send a memo, about that curriculum to juy office, and I will tell the Colo nial Architect to attend to it\" Whether this little incident has been correctly reported or not we can not undertake to say, but there is very little room for doubt as to the defective condition of the curriculum itself. There are many points of view , from which that interesting topic may be looted at; and whichever wo may choosy for the purpose we shall need no microscope—the defects will be manifest to t...
