MODERN WEAPONS. THEIR VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
MODERN WEAPONS. THEIR VALUE. The war correspondeat of "The Times" at Modder River asserts that the experiences of the troops in the recent fighting shows that modern weapons were wholly an advantage to the defenders. They render impossible the invasion of a country thus armed. Especially would this be the case with England. "The Times" attacks the War Office for neglecting to provide the most modern guns.
TRANSVAAL REVENUE. SERIOUS DECLINE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
TRANSVAAL REVENUE. SERIOUS DECLINE. It is believed that there will be a serious decline in the Treasury of the Transvaal Republic. The revenue is largely received from the taxes on the output of private gold mines, but as a large number of these have been suspended since the outbreak of hostilities it is anticipated the sum received for the year will be 30 per cent. less than that of the previous year.

The Highland Society gave £50 to the fund. A Scottsdale member of the first unit writes to friends to say that there is much talk of the contingent being sent to England for a trip after the war is over. He also supplies much information which has already been published in the "Examiner."

[All Rights Reserved.] &nbsp; &nbsp; [PUBLISHED BY SPECIAL t ARRANGEMENT.] THE MYSTERY &nbsp; OF THE DARK HOUSE. I - &nbsp; By " RITA," Author of "Peg the Rake," "Kitty the 1 Rag," "Two Bad Blue Eyes," "A &nbsp; Woman In It," "Darby and Joan," "The Grinding Mills of God," "A Daughter of the People," "A Husband of No Importance," etc., etc. (COPYRIGHT.) &nbsp; CHAPTER XXXI. The child's words haunted Dolores with strange persistence. There could &nbsp; be no doubt about his own belief in &nbsp; this fancy of Miss Penharva's visits. &nbsp; Yet how could his mother credit the &nbsp; truth? Had she not seen the dead &nbsp; woman laid in her coffin, the marks of &nbsp; that murderous hand upon her throat, the horror of an unexpected and tragic &nbsp; doom in her staring eyes? And now &nbsp; to hear from those childish lips that &nbsp; this same person was to him a living...
CHAPTER XXXII. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
CHAPTER XXXII. They walked up the pier silently. His words had helped her out of a dilemma. She felt grateful. The boy ran on before them, eager to reach the Garrison. Ericson had sent his lug- gage to the hotel. "This is my first visit to the Isles since we were here together," said Dolores. "And mine," he answered. "Oh! I thought you came every year." "Not now." There was a ring of sadness in his voice, and she noted it. "I have wanted to see you so much," she said suddenly. "I have something strange to tell you. I know you will think it's absurd, or impossible, but it has taken hold of me strangely; I can't shake it off." And then she told him the child's story in few simple words. "It seems natural she should come to him, for she loved him so; and then death cut short her intentions respect ing him. I have a fancy always that when a person is prevented from do ing anything-I mean taken from, life by crime or accident-they are bound to come back. They can't rest. The link between...
SAILORS AND SHARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
SAILORS AND SHARKS. "Two facts that may seem somewhat peculiar to shore folks," said an ex- &nbsp; sailor of the navy, "are, first, that only &nbsp; about one-half of the men-o'-war's men in our service, or in any other service, &nbsp; in fact, know how to swim, and, 1 second, that sharks are the most I cowardly of all living creatures. It 1 is odd that so large a proportion of the naval sailors don't know how to swim, but it is probably due to the fact that a great number of our men-o'-war's men nowadays come from the interior of the country, where there is no water for them to learn how to swim. - In the old navy-and I put all of my ser- vice in the old navy, so-called-the man who couldn't swim was, as soon as the fact was discovered by his ship- mates, incontinently chucked over the side when swimming call went, and he just had to swim. Of course the men wouldn't let a fellow who didn't know how to swim drown before their eyes, but they would see to it tha...
WHO IS THE SCAPEGOAT? [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
WHO IS THE SCAPEGOAT? It will strike most people that it is rather early yet to commence the search for a scapegoat, but the search has begun. The first suggestion was that the Cape Premier might advan- tageously be driven out into the wil- derness, then it was hinted that per- haps Sir William Butler would prove a suitable substitute, and this was fol- lowed later by a gentle reminder that the War Office and the Commander in-Chief might together be usefully sacrificed. The sins which the scape- goat would have to bear are, it seems, sins of omission, especially the omit- ting to send guns of heavy calibre for the use of Ladysmith, of Kimberley, and of Mafeking. But, queries the "Broad Arrow," are not the self-con- stituted mentors of South African morals off the scent altogether in try- ing to run down a Schreiner, a But- ler, or a Wolseley? Are not the sinners the entire nation, who lent themselves to the exigencies of Government by party? To have proposed twelve months ago the de...
A BATTERY IN ACTION. DEMONIAC GRAPE SHOT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
A BATTERY IN ACTION. DEMONIAC GRAPE SHOT. "Did you ever" (says a writer in the "Weekly Freeman") "see a battery take position? It hasn't the thrill of a cavalry charge, nor the grimness of a line of bayonets moving slowly and determinedly on, but there is a peculiar excitement about it that makes old veterans rise in the saddle and cheer. We have been fighting at the edge of the woods. Every cartridge-box has been emptied once and more, and a fourth of the brigade has melted away in dead and wounded and missing. Not a cheer is heard on the whole brigade. We know that we are being driven foot by foot, and that when we break back once more the line will go to pieces and the enemy will pour through the gap. Here comes help. Down the crowded highway gallops a battery, withdrawn from some other position to save ours. "The field fence is scattered while you could count thirty, and the guns rush for the hill behind us. Six horses to a piece-three riders to each gun. Over dry ditches where ...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
INFLUENZA is not a cold; it is a fever which arises from a cold. It is especially prevalent now. First a cold, then a dull, drowsy, heavy feel- ing; then unrest in the stomach and distaste for food. These symptoms denote influenza. Sharp, boring pains at the back of &nbsp; the head, feverishness, then coldness, weakness and prostration follow. Delirium often occurs. Influenza pulls down the strength and leaves the patient weak and suscept- ible to various ailments. &nbsp; DR. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS are the best known &nbsp; remedy to prevent and &nbsp; cure Influenza and its &nbsp; after effects. &nbsp; What Mr. Hamilton Hill, the eminent vocalist, says: "Whilst touring with a Company &nbsp; on the W A. gold fields some time ago, influenza attacked me very &nbsp; severely. First came a cold and loss of appetite; then I felt dull and drowsy; the pains in my head &nbsp; were fearful, and a high fever set &nb...

TASMANIA v. NEW SOUTH WALES. LARGE SCORING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
TASMANIA v. NEW SOUTH WALES. LARGE SCORING. The match Tasmania v. New South Wales was continued to-day, when the weather was oppressive. The wind blew with hurricane force, a regular brickfielder, until 2 p.m., when a de- Iightful sea breeze got up, and tempered the heated atmosphere. Apart from Gatehouse, who carried his score from 52 to 105, and played in excellent form, the balance of the team made no stand, and the innings closed for 420. The bowling of the visitors was consistent, but not difficult. The batting of Duff and Evers at first was streaky, but when they got set they gave an excellent exhibition of all round hitting, Evers making 24 fours in his 138. Windsor bowled well, but without luck. Eady was most effective with the ball. The fielding of some of the Tasmanians was execrable, and several catches were missed; but for this a different complexion would have been put on the game. Play was resumed at 11 a.m., Gate- house, not out 52, being joined by Haw- son, who recei...
WINSTON CHURCHILL. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
WINSTON CHURCHILL. Several portraits of Mr. Winston Churchill, whose name is now upon every lip, have appeared in the evening papers, but none of them (writes a cor- respondent) are in the least recognis- able as the original. Mr. Churchill is a fair man, with a clean shaven face, sandy-coloured hair, and a pale com- plexion. He holds himself with a distinct stoop, has almost a slouch in his walk, and hardly betrays the ap- pearance or gait of a soldier. In his school-days at Harrow, Mr. Churchill exhibited but few premonitions of com- ing fame, and was neither intellectually nor socially distinguished. He made no mark among his contemporaries, and the comparatively few who knew him regarded him as entirely devoid of promise. On leaving Harrow and joining the 4th Hussars, Mr. Churchill was still, for some time, unappreciated, and his name appeared probably for the first time in print in connection with the hustling of a brother officer by the subalterns of the regiment, which drew f...

The latter was pushed by its rider through the crowd, till at last he held third place, Mr. Griffiths, his jockey, riding a grand race, and being only beaten for a place in the final by being bored into the fence. Nonnette was the first to draw out of the ruck, and led the field a merry dance till the home turn was reached, when Dawn ran into premier position, and won by a couple of...
MENELIK ON THE WAR PATH. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
MENELIK ON THE WAR PATH. The negotiations for the delimitation of the Soudan-Erythrean frontier, in connection with which Mr. Rennell Rodd has arrived here, will have to be postponed for some days owing to the absence of Signor Martini, Governor General of Erythrea, with whom Mr. Rennell-Rodd will treat. A semi-official note states that the negotiations are not in connection with the delimitation of the frontier, and that the real object of Mr. Rodd's journey to Rome is to bring about an agreement between Great Britain and Italy in regard to Menelik. According to the "Corriere della Sera," the news is true that the Negus is marching with 40,000 men towards the Upper Nile region, with the inten- tion of vindicating his territorial claims in that quarter. Disorder is said to be widespread in the district, and the Sheikh Mohammed Blen Abdullah is master of all the coun- try as far as the British settlement at Berbera, on the coast of Somaliland.

TASMANIAN COLLEGE (BOYS). UNDENOMINATIONAL. YORK-STREET, LAUNCESTON (NEXT DOOR TO HERD'S MART). A. GYE, PRINCIPAL, WITH A FULL STAFF OF TRAINED TEACHERS. A UNIQUE HONOUR TO THE NEW (20th) CENTURY. MR. GYE, who has been so well known in Launceston as a teacher for the last nine years, will open the above College on MONDAY, the 15th inst., under specially favourable auspices, and in the above most central position. The building contains suites of large class rooms, well lighted, and admirably adapted for scholastic purposes. The many regular successes in Civil Service, University, and scholarship examinations in England, Victoria, and Tasmania, together with the high position so many of Mr. Gye's pupils hold in the commercial world, stamp the new College with the fame of an old-established institution. There will be two distinct departments quite separate-the A Division or High School, the B Division or Primary School. The A Division will embrace a thorough commercial or classical edu...
