'The Week's War. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 2 February 1900

'The OUeek's Utar. The sews that. Lieutenant-General Warren had abandoned the'captured position on Spion Kop caused intense disappointment throughout Britain. As showing how valiantly the Boers resisted General Warren's assault on Satutd&y and Sunday, Lieutenant Winston Churchill reports that when the British captured the enemy's first Jine of entrenchments they found the i>odi°B of 200 dead defenders. The follpwing is the text of General Bailer's - solitary despatch referring to the abandonment of Spion Eop;—" I am sorry to say that I find this morning that Warren's garrison has in the night abandoned Spion Kop." As snight be expected, under existing cir «u instances, such a despatch raises scores of interpretations. . Many wri. 4ers express the fear that Spion Kop was, a .trap, others, refer to the possi bility of the gamson being driven oat by the enemy. A critical time has been reached In the story of the defence «f Lady smith. The Boers are evi dently determined upon...

FRANCE V. ENGLAND AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 2 February 1900

FEANCE V. ENGLAND AT SEA,, I asked M. Lockroy (writes M. Huret in Le Figaro) What teas the condition of the French navy compared with the English. I knew Kke the reBb of Ihe world t%at ours was infsriftr, but I wanted to know to what degree. M.' Locfctoy said to ine:—"The English are more tfian twice as ritrong as we. They have newly six hand red vessels of war of every tonnage and every de scription) to which mast be added three or foftr hundred merchant steamers, ready to be armed in war time. They by themselves can oppose France and the Triple Alliance. Not only is the number of their vessels formidable compared with that of our fleet, and their personnel more nutuo rotw, but their organisation is incoh testably superior to that of all the fleets in tire frorld. I do not speak of the valor of the French personnel) which yields in nothing to the Eng lish, rather the reverse." "But can the valor) even (lid heroism, of our officers and men suffice in the face of numbers and organisa...

THE STORMING OF SPION KOP. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 February 1900

THE STORMING OF SPION KOP. It sor-ms to be the fate of the British army in the present campaign-' to eon. stanlly win magnificent victories of this sort, which, however, are but details of geueialoperations in which reverses are suffered. No anxiety, though, need be felt as to the ultimate outcoire of a war in which we have troops engaged capable of performing such deeds. Sooner or later the gpnius of the British army will pro vide a situation where victory will count for victory, and bravery will tell, and the courage and devotion and heroitm of our troops, unsurpassed in the history of war, will not be thrown away on useless assaults. The man ner in which the soldiers fought at Spiou Kop, and the fact that Warren's brigade, after the hill had been aban doned, were permitted to march across the Tugela without the loss of a pound of bapgage are gratifying circum stances, The unmolested re-cvossing of the Tugela, with the enemy within 1000yds, indeed goes to show that, although no pr...

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 February 1900

CHAPTER nr. Mrs. Tyrrell was sitting in her pretty drawing-room anxiously awaiting the ring at the bell, which would proclaim Duke's arrival. He had grown inor dinately fond lately of runtiiag off to the Sparses or in that direction. He bad a boat moored at the end of his mother's lawn, and would often go off for a day or two, or even a week, in the direction of Oxford. Mrs. Tyrrell was beginning to wonder a little as to whit those frequent al> eencep portended. She sat now in a low, easy chair, eagerly listening for the expected eoaad, and too anxious to busy herself with the work which was lyin^ in her lap. Lois Tyrrell was-now thirty-three, and a very lovely woman. She did not look her age by seven or eight years, and the neighbours (who natu rally supposed her to be Duke's mother, and, therefore, at least forty years old) generally considered that Mrs. Tyrrell, ' Must paint or she could not look so ridiculously young !' People knew that she had keen mar ried at sixteen, but, ...

The Bushmen's'Contingent Fund. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 February 1900

The Bushmen's'Contingent Fiind, The Bushmen's Contingent Fund ex ceeds £30,000. The papers didn't say so ; they say £25,000, but this is only the local Fund. During the lasb few weeks £500 has been collected in Eng land, and unless it is intended to be divided over all the Bush Contingents, which is improbable, it will come to supplement the amount collected ia Sydney, making it up to the sum just stated. The general opinion down here is that the Bush Contingent is going to distinguish itself, a belief that is shared by public aiid officials alike. One of the leading permanent officers states that the Company will embrace the best stamp of men who have ever left Australia. In his opinion, their chief use will be as sconts, and he questions if in this arm of the Service the British themselves will have anything quits as effective. All the selected men have had bush experience, some of them a good deal, and taken on the whole they shoot as well as they ride. A cable was re ceived by M...

AN OLD ORANGE TREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 February 1900

AN OLD ORANGE TREE. The oldest orange tree in Prance has just di'.d; ti.is is an item recently^ found in the '-Press Miscellany." If true, it iB interesting as showing the very great age to which an orange tree may attain under favorable con ditions. The details as published are as follows : It was brought to France with several others in 1^21 by Queen Leonore, of Castile, the wife of Charles III. of Navarre, and in 1684 Louise XIV. ordered that it be trans- | planted to the orange grove in Ver sailles, and there it has remained ever since. During the last two centuries the tree has teen known as the "Grand Bourbon," and for many years every possible care has been taken to preserve it from decay. Now it has passed away at the great age of 478 years, and many Parisians who knew it well are sori.y that they will never again see this stalely ornament of the Versailles Ckrdens. Here is a story told by W. G. Grace : A cricketer who has to go in sixth on hi* side, seeing that the pre cedi...
