BOYCOTT. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 23 November 1898

BOYCOTT. It is one of the ironies of history tory that Captain Boycott, who has thus enriched and immortalised bis name by a diopute with his tennntp, should have died on tho beBt of terms with thorn. He was a bluff, henrty fellow : with no vindiotivenesa in his composition ; and when the times became quieter, he and hia tenantry came together ; and agreed to be the best of friends. There ia a story which has often been told ; and which is probably true. Csptuin Boycott entered a res'aurant in the Strand ; he sits down at a table at whioh there w:-s a vacant seat. The other seat is occupied by a gentleman at whom he does not look. He seats him-elf coir-forlably ; ordered his dinner ; and then prepares to enjoy himself. Suddenly l,e looks at the gentleman opposite ; the gentleman opposite looks up at the name time ; their eyes meet ; there is a look of surprise, then a smile of recognition ; a paufp, and then a hearty shake of rhe htind.

THE ETIQUETTE OP THE DESERT., Social etiquetto among the Arabs is a factor in lifu to be considered ser iously if you wioh to live among them without friction. Its obligations are not to be ouinpletfly masteied in a few months Sometimes the harmony of the occasion is ser ously endungered ,oy some inougntiossness or ignorance on the part of visitors, which to the .-Moslem appeared a contemptuous want of conbideration. . . .

THE TRAGEDY OF BLOODY POINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 23 November 1898

THE TRAGEDY OF BLOODY POINT. A new caudidate for public favour is Daw fuskie Island, one of the islands not far distant from Savinuah and one of the most interesting historically. Dawfuskie is tbe Indian name of the islnnd. It is some six miles iu length and lour miles iu width, noted for its fish, oysters, slid crabs, and famous of late years for its deer hunting. The Indmus are very partial to it — that is, judging from the mounds, tomalianks, urii»w-heads and other relics of that race which are stilt to be found on the island. It is the south-easternmost point of South Carolina, and directly opposite Tybee Island. The following story of Dawfuskie Island appeared in ' The Morning News ' of June 24lh, 1873. and is all of its early history that cau be fouud : ' Tho massacre of Bloody Point, though previous to the Revolutionary war, is still inter esting us leiuting to tbe ancient history of St. Luke.

THE LADY AND THE GOLDEN CAL EVBRAL years ago I wns stationed, as as sistant Burgeon, with my regiment at Or leans. In that ancient city, in spite of its many mansions of the old nobility, suitable apartments for bache lors are few and far betwren. I always want plenty ef air aud space about me, and so I installed myself in a build ing on the outskirts of the city. I rented half of the first floor, comprising four rooms. I made my sleeping chamber and workroom of the two which faced on the street; in the third I put plants and flowers ; the fourth was left empty. A great balcony ran along the entire front of the bouse, on which I could stroll up anil down— or rather on half of it, for it wis divided in the middle by an iron teuce so low that one could easily step over. I had been living there about two months, ?irlion mm .Tnlv »D*t,iinnr na T n.iiitrnnplmil mv looms, I was surprised to see a brilliant light streaming from the windows of the uninhabited apartment.
