SYMPATHISERS WITH THE- BOERS. A movement is on foot in Newcastle (New South Wales), states the "Age," to petition the Government to remove all foreigners from the public service.

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
ODDS AND ENDS. In the Washington. Senate, Mr. Mason moved a resolution expressing sym pathy with ithe Boers in their struggle for liberty. 'After consideration, the henate referred s. the motion toy the Foreign Relations Committee, and the matter has thus practically been shelved. Just before ¢ the transport British Princess left Southampton Docks, the sailors of a Japanese warship lying at the same quay handed up cigarettes to the English soldiers on board, and then as the ship moved oFi they formed up on the quay and gave a splendid imitation of a British cheer. The "Jiji Shimtpo" and other Japan ese papers loudly praise the forboar ance and patience shonvn by England in her dealings with the Transvaal. In a newspaper published at Amster dam, the Transvaal Government ad vertises for 12 telegraph operators, stipulating, however, that no Roman Catholic need apply. Roman Catholics in. Holland make up two-fiftihs of the population, and as the whole nation has been very noisy in its su...

TOMMY ATKINS OFF TO THE FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
TOMMY ATKINS OFF TO THE FRONT. Mr. Julian Ralph sends to the "Daily Mail" a vivid description of troops leaving Capetown for the front. "The carriages were filled, with soldiers in khaki, officers in civilian ,attire, and hundreds of Cape Boys and Kafifrs, who were hired as transport helpers. Other officers, idle citizens, wondering Mahomedans, and excited negresses formed the crowd that saw them de part. . . . The supreme moment comes when the train starts. Then the Tommies leap to their feet and thrust their hands out of the windows for a good-by share. 'Don't be too proud, sir,' one of them called to me. But nobody is too proud to shake good-luck and God-speed to a soldier rushing to battle. Though I can hardly believe it myself, I saw proud officers of the finest English regiments shaking hands with not only the privates, but with the Kaffirs, as the train swang by, and the air was torn with shouts, and song, and cheers. Having gone to' the front, "Tommy" gives a good account of...

FARM AND STATION. AGRICULTURAL BREVITIES. COMPILED BY PLOUGHSHARE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
FARM AND STATION. ARiICULTURAL BRXEVITIES. COMPILED BY PLOUGHSHARE. J Recent rains have greatly benefited t the potato crops on the North-West o Coast. Mr. Potts, Victorian dairy expert, ex pected to reach Launceston on Wed nesday. I A farmer .writes:-"There is every probability of a reduction in the charges nand wages for threshing this season, on account of the low~ prices I and short crops." A correspondent at Tunnack informs me that the milk suppliers of Tuunack htave received a price for their milk considerably in excess of what they otherwise would have obtained had there been no factory in the district This may be accounted for by the fact that dairy butters are less sought after by consumers -owing to the quality generally not being so regular as the best factory products. Tasmanian potato exporters should be enabled to send away a fair quan tity of the tuber to South Africa this season. Oats and potatoes ought to find a really good market there. Mr. Potts will remain in Tas...
CHAPTER XXXVII. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
OHAPTER XXXVII. June 3rd.-I have found the clue. There is a spring-a tiny, almost im Derceptible knob, more like an uneven ness in the wall than anything else. After much Dpressure and trial it yielded. The panel opens into a re 'cess, and there, leading down to depths unknown, is the winding stairway. I have not the courage to go down. The air is 'damp and mouldy, and it is horribly dark. I am quite content to 'have proved my dream correct. I shall sleep win peace to-night, I hope, and to-monrow I will ask my grand father if he knows aught of any secret chamber in the basement, or any exit into the grounds through a subterra nean channel. These stairs may go down to the foundations, and then lead to the cliffs for aught I know. A fine method of escape when changing dy nasties and the iron rule. of the Com monwealth made traitors of the good and loyal nobles of England. June 14t.--I have got .hold of the story by scraps and bits. It is far too long and intricate to put down here. It...
