In process of lime collectors began to purchase these heads, and this led to many murders being committed in order to secure the head and offer It for sale. It then became a practice to tAttoo the heads of slaves, so that they might eventually bo killed, and their heads sold ; but this had long since been stopped. Tho wearing of necklaces and ear-! rings went back many hundreds of years amongst every class of savnge and the present use of powder and paint by them was a continuation of the use of pipeclay and red ochre centuries ago...

TO SAVE THE WOUNDED. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 July 1914

TO SAVE TOE WOUNDED. On that fatal (lay, February 27th, 1881, Majuba Hill was the scene of a marvellous exhibition of valour, and an escapc from death which was truly providential. While Cor poral Joseph Farmer, of the Army Hospital Corps, was attending to the fallen amid a huil of bullets, the doctor and one of the assist ants were struck down at the same moment. Thinking it was the re sult of an accident, he seized a ban dage and waved it in the air, in the hope that the Boers would see it and rcspect the wounded. He was bitterly mistaken, how ever. The deluge of lead became more and more fierce. A bullet shattered his wrist, and his right arm dropped helpless to his side. "Never mind, I have another," said the brave fellow, as he picked up the bandage with Is lctt hand and waved it aloft. An instant later, this arm. too, was shattered. But, undismayed, he continued signall ing with his muiined arms as best ' ho could, miraculously escaping a hundred deaths, until at last the firf...
