A PAIR OF LIARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 March 1900

A PAIR OF LIARS. A good story is going the rounds of the London Clubs. A certain vary smart stockbroker was appointed cap tain in one of the Irish militia bat* talians. He was warned that the plausible -old soldiers of this new company would get^the better of him. He only smiled ift" the idea." Soon after the regiment was embodied, the color-sergeant came 'to Ids captain's room with an old soldier, who wished to speak to the officer. The mas was admitted, and explained that he had heard from his wife, who was ill, and-—"if you plaze, gor, -can I have forty-eight hours lave?" "You say you have heard from your wife sai£ the captain, smelling a rat and be ginning to turn op some imaginary correspondence on bis table. "I have heard from her, too, and site asks me not to give you leave, for you only go home to get drunk and break the fur niture." '"She wrote that, «or?M "Yes." And does that mean, sor, that I can't have me lave?" 'It does,' The man saluted and went to the door, then, turn...

A TEAITOR'S END. Shooting a Horse-poisoner. A file of men and a. cold grey mors, No comrade's word, no liand of friend, An open grave for a tliiiig of scorn, A traitor's end. ' A Wae Correspondent at the Front' ■writes as follows in the Midland News : The -Colonel of the Gunners leant sideways and exchanged a few whis peied words with the Sappers' Major, and the commauder of a company of the Royal Wessex eyed the prisoner curiously, A slight mail with sandy hair and straggling beard was the pri soner, and standing between the file of stalwart khaki-clad soldiers be, looked by reason of the contrast much' smaller than he actually was. His small blue eyes set deep in his head, glanced nervously from one to the other 'members of the Court, and the red-knuckled hands locked and inter locked incessantly. The President finished his whispered conversation, and addressed himself again to the blue paper lying before him. Clearing his throat he began:—' Have you any questions to ask this witn...

The CUcek's IXX&?. -Lord Roberts has wired the fallow ing dispatch to the War Office fio.n bis headquarters at Poplar Grove— "We have had a-very successful day. We completely routed the enemy from his late position at Osfontein, which was extremely strong, and cunningly arranged with a second line of en trenchments. A direct attack would have caused heavy loss. Such fight ing as took place was entirely confined to the cavalry, which force did ex ceediugly well. Mejor-Genera] French's horse artillery batteries did great execution among the ranks of the enemy. Our casualties were 50 men killed and wounded. The Boers were commanded by Commandants De Wet and De la Rey.

A Pardonable Sin. CHAPTER VIII. "He assured her that ho 'had never "known what his birth was till that <iay, and he ended by passionate pro testations of love and devotion. When he reached the paddock there ■was uo sign of Merle. He had half hoped to find her wait ing for him: but she was not there. He went up towards the house, and presently came across Ellen, who had strolled out for a little flirtation with, the under-gardener. He bad bribed to carry his letter and retired to the summer house to await the answer. The girl was not long ayay. When she returned she bore in" her hand a tiny note, upon which Drike pounced eagerly. He tore it open, only to feel a bitter disappointment. Inside were written the following words in Lady Merle's pretty, dainty handwriting: 'You must never write to me again ■or Attempt to eee me. Everything between us is ever. Tbis is final.— Merle.'

You must let me ! But come back, Duke !' 'How can I ?' he asked. ' Don't you see how 1 There is one way,' she whispered. 'I don't understand,' he began slowly, while a glimmering of ber meaning began to steal over him aa he saw her blushing, downcast face. She flung Iter arms round his neck, and bid her face on his shoulder. ' Marry me, Duke,' she murmured. 'Let me be your wife. I have loved you so many, many years, my dear, dear boy. I am not mufh older than you, and all I have shall be yours.' Duke pushed her away gently, and spoke with a breathless catch in his voice. ' This is all strange to me,' he said.

At the conclusion of the first part of the address, Mrs. Lance gave the audience a musical treat in her singing of "The Soldier's Tear." The lecturer next showed lantern views of places of interest in the country, and those pre sent got a fair idea of tbe naturo of the country, and the rough work per formed by our soldierB.

Dr. Leyds is hurrying 100 skilled artillerints to the TransVaal capital. A Russian'Jew has been sentenced at K-imberley to three years' imprison ment; for Signalling to the enemy. The courtesy and kindness shown by the British to Cronje and the prisoners taken with him have pleased the Boers. Later particulars of the rout of the JJoers at Osfontein state that Presi dents Kruger and Steyn, who were present, were far in the rear daring the enemy's flight, and attempted fruitlessly to stem the retreat, which •resembled a partridge drive. A de tachment of N.Z. Mounted Rifles has "been sent to Carnalvon, which is threatened by a rebel force. Confirm ation has been received of the dis organisation of the Boer forces.

Renovating Worn-out Soil. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 March 1900

Kenovating Worn-out Soil. The wonderful rapidity and low cost at which worn-out red clay loams can be restored to great productiveness -can only be fully credited by those who have tried tho experiment. We have seen a bare hill-top in an old paddock, notoriously the most poverty stricken spot in the country, made fertile by a row of cowpeas, crimson clover and maize. It used to yield about 5 bushels per acre, but to-day it can give 50 bushels of grain. In the autumn crimson clover was sown, and in Octo ber, when about 2ft high and in full ! bloom, it was ploughed under, This rotation went on only four years, and now that hill is clothed with a great variety and luxuriance of growth, anil it is Dne of the most fertile spots on the farm. We hove seen the same re sults achieved in another district by rotating cowpeas and wheaten ..and oaten hay.1' In both of these cases, as [ the soil was a clay loam, containing a good supply of mineral matter, and ex hausted merely of humus or nitroge...

Each and every Show has been a credit to the grr-at Bega centre, and its sur roundings. But the i900 Show, we understand, stands alone in the fact that a Minister of the Crown, the Hon. E. W.

This ceremony took place about 3 p.m. The president of the Society, Mr, Kerrison, briefly introduced Mr. O'Sulliv.in, who spoke as follows :— He waa very pleased to visit their rich and flourishing district, and this he did at the invitation of the member for (he district, Mr. H.

BULLETS v. BAYONETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 March 1900

BULLETS v. BAYONETS. Some interesting controversies from a ' purely military point of view are al ready arising put of the campaign. The San Francisco Nem Letter says that a quarter of a century ago, with the ex perience of the Franco-Prussian War to guide them, military experts were unanimous in pronouncing the doom of the bayonet. During that great con flict, cold steel never came into play, and therefore extremists went so far as to advocate the abolition of the bayo net as part of the-soldier's equipment. It was no use, they said, and only meant so much extra weight to carry. To-day we fancy they would change their opinion, British troops, _mtviag against admittedly the finest markunen in the' worH, have again and again carried the Boer positions by (fte simple, old-fashioned expedient of a yell and a charge!' Boers hate to be stuck, for the process is an exceedingly painful one. Hence they 'turn and flee with exceeding rapidity, whenever the glittering line of steel appears bve...
