JUST A MINUTE, PLEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900

JTUIST A 1INITE, PLEASE. Tired men, whether suffering from physical or mental fatigue, delicate women, growing girls and little cilJdren find Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa a unique beverage of inestimable benefit. The nauseous drugs and disagreeable medicines associated with ill-health: are, in Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa, replaced by something which is pleasant and nice, with a distinctive flavouring of its own which will appeal to the fastidious and over-nice palate of the invalid, and its soothing effect renders' it an ideal "Pick-me-up." Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa, by taking the place of stimulants of an ardent nature, has made happy many a home which otherwise to-day would have been wretched, and the ultimate effects of ,which it is impossible to foresee. , For breakfast, dinner, supper-indeed,, at' any hour of the twenty-four-Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa will be found light and refreshing; it leads the way among all beverages, and nothing can equal it.

THE BOER WAR. A HUGE SOUTH AFRICAN CONSPIRACY. WILL THE POWERS INTERVENE? NAVAL MOBILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900

THEBOER WAR. A HUGE SOUTH AFRICAN CON SPIRACY. \WILL THE POWERS INTERVENE? NAVAL MOBILISATION. The correspondent of the "Otago Wit ness" wrote under date, London, Oc tober 21:-Those Radical papers which have sneered at the unprecedented en thusiasm manifested in this country, and especially in this city, with refer ence to our war with the Transvaal. as unworthy of the dignity of a great Em pire, in view of the relative weakness of our foe, misconceive in the strangest way the true inwardness of the situa tion, and underrate to an incalculable extent its profound gravity. I have previously explained that the true inwardness of the wvar in its pre sent shape lies in an extensive Dutch conspiracy to upset British rule in South Africa, and to substitute a new republic as "the United States of South Africa." That has been the aim all along of Kruger and his colleagues, es pecially of the energetic and enter prising and dangerous Dr. Leyds, who, at the present moment, is in Europe doing ...

THE VALUE OF SCOUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900

THE VALUE OF SCOUTS. The Man of Mafelking has just writ ten a book on the value of scouting in war time. .To be successful as a scout (he says) you must have plenty of what Americans call "jump" and "push," jump being alertness, wideawakeness, and readiness to seize your oppor tunity; and push being a n:ever-say-die feeling. If stopped at one point shove in somewhere else-never give in. Scouts, he goes on, havel to undergo continual risks and privations. "It is compara tively easy for a man in the excitement of battle to dash out before the rest, and do some gallant deoed, but it is an other thiig for a man to take, his life in his hands to carry out some extra dangerous piece of scrutiny on his own account when the,,e is no one by to applaud, and it might be just as easy for him to go back. ' This is,a t'rue bit of hero's work:.' And see how valu able it is! Instanices of important re sults from one's scout work are in numerable, the most notable being the battle of Sadowa, where a...

PATHETIC WAR INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900

PATHETIC WAR INCIDENT. A pathetic incident at Elandslaagte is described) (says the "Daily Mail") in a letter from one of the bearer com pany:-"We were out looking after the wounded' at night when the fight was over, when I came across an old, white bearded Boer. He was lying behind a bit of rock, supporting himself on his elbow. I was a biot wary of the old, fellow at first. Some of these wounded Boers, we've found, are snakes in the grass. You go up to them with the best intentions, and the next thing you know is that the man you were going 'to succour is blazing at you with his gun. "So," the letter goes on, "I kept my eye on the old chap. But when I got nearer I saw that he was too far gone to raise his rifle. He was gasp ing hard for breath, and I saw he was not long for this world. He motioned to me that he wanted to speak, and I bent over him. He asked me' to go and find his son-a boy of 13, who had been fighting by his side when he fell. "Well, I did' as he asked me," con tin...

FOR THE CHILDREN. PICKED UP AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900

FOR THE CHILDRENI. PICKED UP AT SEA. (By David Ker, in "Little Folks.") It was the fifth morning of our S' voyage from England to the Azores,and " the storm which had been buffeting. us and keeping us back for the last three days was at length beginning to abate. r One could actually walk the whole t length of the deck without holding on to anything. The plates and knives rested quietly in their places on the f dinner-table, instead of flying about as if a juggler were playing ball with them, and it was possible, to. lean F against the quarter-rail, or' look out over the stern, without any fear of C being drenched from head, to foot by c the salt-water shower-bath of.a burst- ' ing wave. · " By this time we had got far enough to the southward tohave'it tolerably t warm in the middle of the day, even though we were now in December, and when the sun broke forth at last through the grey, sullen dimness that had hidden him so long, it was pleasant. enough to stand on the "bridge" and wa...

THE GLORY OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900

-TbIE GLORY OF MAN. The crown and glory of manhood is t strength-power. All human conquests t have been won by it, individual and a collective. The earliest sign of decay t in man is not usually pain, but weak 1ness of some kind-of mind or body, or both. This may be the inevitable sequence of advanced years, or it may, as we all know, show itself at any 1 period of life. But it always means f that the sources of strength are fail ing, as the lessening of the water in a river means a drying uo of the springs and streams which feed it. I said "sources" of strength, using s the plural word. I should have said o "source" of strength, for in human be- r ings there is but one. I What is it? f Perhaps the experience of Mr. David t Jones will help us .to an answer. "In the summer of 1881," he says, a "I began to feel ill and out of sorts. I was weak and tired, and quite worn out with little exertion. I had a poor d appetite, and after eating had pain and weight at the chest. My secretions w...
