The Big Prize Turkey. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 15 December 1899

The Bier Prize Turkey 'A Merry Christmas, Bob,' said Scrooge, with an earnestness that could not be mistaken, as he clapped him on the back. ?' A merrier Christmas,' my good fellow, than I have given you for many a year, 1 11 'raise your salary; and we will discuss your affairs this afternoon over a bowl of smoking bishop. Make up tbe fires and buy another coal-scuttle, Bob Cratchit.' Andis to tho big prize turkey which the regenerated Scrooge' sent to Camden. Town, do we not all know- what sort of bird it- was?- That turkey never could have atoiid upon its legs, Mr. Dickens snys. They must have sunpped short off like sticks of sealing wnx. How tbey managed to cook and eat that phenomenon the author doesn't say, as it wns twice the size of Tiny Tim. Yet they did it some how, and it was a mercy if the family (previously half starved) didu't all fall ill of the unwonted gorging of that won derful Christmas day.

Xmas Facts. ALWAYS IN DEMAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 22 December 1899

Xmas Facts. ?ALWAYS IN DKMANI). Lovers, at least, ? will be interested to hear that the mistletoe crop this year is very plentiful in old countries. There is' an impression that the lur ing bush all comes to England from abroad, but that is really not so. TV.n a.mnlv ,'a I-nnoi* ira/l Devonshire, Gloucestershire, Hert fordshire, and other south-western counties, and when the season is mild, as it undoubtedly is at the usual time, the home crop practically ab sorbs the market. Each year, how ever, some mistletoe arrives from Normandy and Breton in France, but only when the home crap fails does this import trade reach large dimen sions. It may not bo generally known that the home-grown mistle toe is a far superior shrub to the foreign, grown. The berries naturally last longer, and the leaves do not lose their lively appearance so soon as the kind from France. The French, however, pack their crop in small tidy bundles, und placing them neatly in crates, solid them off to the London mar...

HER MAJESTY'S CHRISTMAS BOXES. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 22 December 1899

HER MAJESTY'S CHRISTMAS BOXES. At stated intorvals there is an agi tation (promptod doubtless by some stingy manor other) for the abolition of Christmas boxes. Somehow the old-fashioned custom comes up smiling again, as if nothing had happened. In some respects the custom is an evil — as, for instance, whon Christmas boxes are demanded as a right to which tho recipients are entitled. In others it is a gratifying practice as whon persons who can afford to do so, voluntarily make donations to those thoy wish either to reward for some service, or to assist in an unostentatious way. To tho latter class Hor Majesty's Christ mas boxes belong. It has often been remarked that in her observances of tho customs and practiccs ? of tlie times, the Queeu is very exact. Sho is intensely British, and maintains scrupulously thoso traditions hvhieh aro characteristic of British Society. Tho giving of Christmas boxes is 0110 of them. In this hor Majesty recog nises -u custom that carries happiness to...

TO MY NECK IN MUD. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 22 December 1899

UP TO MY NECK IN MUD. I was once invited to spend Christ® mas with a friend in Ireland, and on - Christmas Eve I arrived, at the nearest railway station, to find I had to walk over two miles to my friend's house. The path seemod a well-defined one oven in the darkness ; but presently, ? uv uij iiuiiur, x xuuiiu a suit substance beneath my feet, and all traco of tho path gone. Deeper and deeper I seemed to sink ; then fling ing out my arms, I grasped a friendly post, to which I clung like a bear in tha Zoo, not daring to leave go for fear of being sucked intp the deadly bog, I shouted at intervals, but no ono camo, and after a night of agony, such as I shall never forget, Christ mas day broke to find me still cling ing, half-frozen, to the post. As the surrounding objects became more dis tinct, I found to my disgust that tho bog was nothing more than a little mudhole, and a couple of strides oither way would have brought me to solid footing.
