Why Business Men Die Early. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 23 February 1900

Why Business Men Die Early ' If you were to aek me what is driv ing bo many business men to their graves at the present moment,' re marked a well-known physician to the writer the o'her day, 'my answer would be the prevailing habit of sub stituting liquor for solid food during working hours. ' It is peifectly astonishing what a number of men try to sustain them, selves on alcohol from the time they leave their homes of a morning until they go back at night. Everything is done in such feverish haste now-a days that the time-honored luncheon interval of sixty minutes is positively getting out of date in many commer cial circles, and men who formerly felt the absolute necessity of a sub stantial meal during the day, which, besides replenishing the body, afforded a sorely-needed rest, are contenting theooselves witU » few nips of brandy or whisky, with perhaps a biscuit, swallowed, bb it were, in the twink. ling of an eye.

The Week's War. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 3 March 1900

The Uleek's OUat*. Ok Wednesday General Bailer's main forces crossed the Tugela on a pontoon, and drove the enemy's rearguard from the kopjes on the northern bank. The Boers offered a slight resistance to Butler's advance, but the NaVal Bri gade, operating effectively with 12. pounders, Eilenced their guns. Many evidences were found of the Boers having deserted their laagers at the Tugela in panic. Large quantities of store?,' ammunition, blankets, Bibles, I and several varieties of expanding | bullets were abandoned by the enemy in their flight. The Boers also left their dead and wounded. Hart's ad vance guard has made such headway as to be visible from Ladysmith. The Boi-ra big gun, "Long Tom," which was in position on Bulwana-hill, has vanished. Two hundred of the enemy's waggons, under a large escort, depar ted from ColenKO on Monday. It is estimated that the withdrafra1 ot Boery from Natal to the Free Stale, which is already in progress, will amount to 20,000 men. Correspondehc...

A spaa of fourteen years is a large proportion of a man's lifetime, and perhaps nothing broiight this fact home mors forcefully to our departing townsman than the number of his rx-j'upils who rallied round him on Friday last to take a leading part in the varied festivities of the day.

That Tacfcer would have been the most appropriate General to have re lieved starving Kiml/erley. That 'any professions of friendship from Germany and France (espe cially the former) after tho assistance rendered the Boora, will be smiled at by Britishers, That letters from the war from our boys, and published broadcast in the Sydney dailies, are getting quite too monotonous. That the stain of the Magcrsfontein disaster will cling to Methu- n for all time unless some unexpected explana tions are forthcoming. That Cobargo's magnificent display in ail sections at the Show proves the wonderful resources of the district, and the energy of its people. That judging by the number of Germans being captured by the Bri tish, England has been fighting more than the poor ignorant Boer, That the cricket team for Bega should hav...
