Successful Life Assurance. PROSPEROUS RECORD OF THE CITY MUTUAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 7 April 1900

Successful X«ife Assur ance. PROSPEROUS RECORD OP THE OITY MUTUAL. The annual report of the City Mutual Life Assurance Society, just given to the press, is the most satisfactory document of the kind yet issued from the Society, and one that is a very laudable record for life assurance work iu New South Wales. There is internal evidence in the report that the management haB been unswervingly strict iu the direction of doing a solid and not a demonstrative business— the very best, perhaps the oniy, guarantee or permanence oi pros perity on the part of a life assurance institution, and we venture to think the entire assurance world of Australia will be ready to accord to the City Mutual management a large measure of praise for the wise and economical management of their institution. Summed up, the City Mutual Life's business shows con stant solid growth— an increase of busi ness and decrease of expenses, indicating the pursuit by the management of a well designed plan to make solider a...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 7 April 1900

Insurance Against the Plague. The very thing the whole of Sydney litis been looking out for has been decided upon by the New Zealaud Accident Insurance Company. Tho people, faced by tho deadly scourge, tho Bubonic Plague, have been painfully anxious to see whether there was any chance of insurance against it. It is a relief, therefore, to find that the abovenamed Company has decided to include tho Bubonic Plague as a risk against which insurance will be granted This is a i step which, we doubt not, will meet with full recognition from the general public. For some time paf-t the New Zealand Accident Insurance Company have seen a steadily increiising business in policies covering all kinds of accidents, and in their 'Acme' combined accident and sickneps policy they have been including several such camplaints as typhoid and diphtheria, and now they have resolved to face the common slayer troubling Sydney to-day, v'h , the Bubonic Plague. Tho terms are v ry liberal, and no man in bueine...

Things in General. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 7 April 1900

Things in General. EL The Argua , Birmingham, has been fined £100 for abusing Justice Darling because he pro hibited the publication of indecent evidence.

Corn Cobs. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 7 April 1900

Corn Cobs. Sam R. Crockett weighs nearly 20 stone and is 6ffc 4in. in his socks. Peter Jackson is said to be dying of pneumonia in British Columbia. It was the Morning Star and not the Daily Telegraph that Bright was interested in. J ustin McCarthy was the ex tinguished Star's foreign editor first and then boss editor. Many coalminers are leaving Newcastle, N.S.W., for Britain where wages are very much higher. Barrier Truth tells the local wage earner some home truths about his filthy tongue. Even the presence of women is no check. The Pastoralists' Union approves of the enlightened socialism which spends £250,000 in improving stations by artesian boring. He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, And he who has one enemy shall meet him everywhere. Otto Cribb appears to be in vincible. He beat ' Tot ' Higgins, of Melbourne, for the light-weight championship in the thirteenth round. At Singleton a Mahommedan hawker refused to accept interest from the savings t ank on hi...

Gore and Glory. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 7 April 1900

I Gore and Glory. ^ Empires generally die of indiges tion, through swallowing too much territory. — Napoleon. i At Magersfontein a Guardsman discovered in the pocket of a silk dress a lady's watch— still going. In Cronje's tent, a private found two gold rings, for one of which he was offered, but refused, the sum of £35. Charles Arnold distributed £1000 worth of grapes among the soldiers at the front by means of his fruit fund. During the pursuit of Cronji, some officers were reduced to living on porridge made from the bran intended for horses. The privates also robbed the horses and, after the fashion of the Scottish freebcoter, ground oa'.s between stones and made oat cakes. Frauk Wilkinson's letters may not be so chatty as ' Banjo ' Pater son's but there is more solid infor mation in them. The Contingent, now complete, has been removed with tho other troops to Rook wood Park. The rain washed them out. From the brutal behaviour of some of the troopers in Sydney, one oan guess how ...

Plaguey Pars. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 7 April 1900

Plaguey Pars. Our legacy from the City Council — Dirt, Disease, Death ! In January there were 127 cases of typhoid; in February 192; m March about 200. The septiocomic (that is ' putrid ') form of plague is more dangerous and rapid than the bubonic variety. The mortality among abstainers in the cholera epidemic was about 19 9 per cent. Among drinkers the mortality was 91 per cent. Don't booze therefore thinking thereby to keep off the plague. In reality, the use of alcohol greatly augments the danger. Having visited Hongkong, Cal cutta and other plague centres, Robert Brough thinks the Sydney newspaper plague scare ridiculous. A number of contacts on parole having neglected to come up for daily inspection, the police are taking compulsory measures. The heavy rain ought to assist the operations of Mr. McCredie in cleansing out the dirty and danger ous parts of our neglected city. Mayor Harris was ready to eat his dinner off Sussex-street as a proof of its cleanliness. They took 75 to...
