Bullying in the French Army. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 12 May 1903
Bullying in tlie French Army. M. Paul dk Cassagn'ac (the hater of England) is instituting a campaign^ against bullying in tlie French Army. For years French Chauyins (t»r Jing oes) have bestowed mock pity on'Gei man private soldiers ill-treated by their superiors. Bullying is every bit as bad m the French Army, and while, at any rate, the German soldier is well looked after, the French soldier suffers from neglect. The figures quoted re cently by General Andre in the Cham ber of Deputies are startling and in deed appalling. The death-rate in the French Army is about t hree times that of the German Army. M. Paul de Cassngnac complains that stories of bullying are much too frequent, and appear to be much too true. At Rouen, for instance, n soldier suffering from typhoid fever was compelled, not withstanding his entreaties, to take part in a thirty miles' inarch, which killed him. At Lille' a sergeant is re ported to hav3 broken a soldior's leg with the butt end of a rifle.- At Lille' ...
Artesian Water and Western Soil. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 12 May 1903
Artesian Water and Western Soil. Professor David, of the Sydney University; has supplied to a metro politan journal some information about the geological history of the western plains' of this State, the probable quan tity of artesian water available, and the components of the soil of the plains. The Professor reads in the records of the territory the following story. In. , the long past ages New South Wales possessed a dividing range of Alpine proportions. A process of denudation : continuing over vast, periods of time carried material easterly and westerly. That borne westerly filled up great fresh water lakes which occupied the area of what are now the western plains, and became the reservoir for subsequent artesian waters. A subsi dence of this area followed, allowing the sea to come iu afc least as far south as Narromine, aud this subsidence was so great that the sediments which had filled the lakes went down over three thousand feet below the sea. During the persistence of the...

The Premier aml-IVIr. J'erry. Sir John She and Mr. Perry were invited to unveil a tablet in connection I with the public school at Alexandria ou Tuesday last. In the course of an address the Premier said, ' When my colleague, Mr. Perry, was offered the office of Minister for Public Instruc tion in the present Government, he was not quite satistiid with the post allotted, and called to see me on the matter. I then sa:d, ' Look here, Perrv, there is no department in this couutry which offers :io many oppor tunities of- showing the metal of which a man is made than the ofiice of Minis ter for Public Instruction.' It is plain that there are chances which fall to the lot of no other Minister, and after the lapse of years I am satisfied that Mr. Perry recognised this, and was delighted with the opportunities which came in hu- way.'

Losses in Horses. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 12 May 1903
Losses in Horses. In the British House of Commons recently a» query was propounded to the Government as to the actual num ber of horses that had been lost by death in the Boer rebellion. The reply was that, according to the figures furnished by the QuartermasterGen eral, 349,728 horses and 53,339 mules I and donkeys had perished in the field [ while 15,960 died on board ship on the J | way to South Africa from the differ ent ports of embarkation. The chief loss was from using horses not ac climated, as hard and constant work was required of them when tliey had not the strength to do it. Mr. Kingston says his father was tho first white man to set foot on the site now known as Adelaide.

Still Hungry. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 12 May 1903
Still Bfinngry. James Dobbs was the hero of the Staffordshire mining village in which be lived. And yet he was not what might have been called an intellectual genius.— far from it — ueitlier was he a mighty figure in the footfall field, nor vet. the owner of a prize bull-pup. Yet he was a hero, for he could eat — with a capital E. In the opinion of the most enthusiastic of his admirers he could have eaten a brick embellished with a little mortar sauce; but how ever that may be, it is certain that he was heavily backed a little while ago to consume a whole roast goose, to gether with a proportionate quantity of vegetables, bread, aud tea. The great day came, and in the evening James succeeded in triumphantly de-, molishitig the bird, vegetables, &c. Nothing but the well- picked skeleton remained, and James offered to eat that for an extra half-crown. But his backers were quite satisfied, and amid a scene of tremendous enthusiasm James was escorted homewards by a joyful concou...

The Deadly Pea-Rifle. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 12 May 1903
*TI»e Deadly Pea-ltiile. One of the most pathetic accidental Bhooting cases recorded in this district (writes the Queensland ' Times' ' Boonah correspondent) occurred at Sandy Creek, about seven miles from Boonab, on Saturday afternoon, and, unfortunately, terminated fatally. About 2 p.m. on Saturday, Mr. Fred erick W. Yenz, a highly respected - farmer residing at Sandy Greek, took down a pea-rifle, which was hanging in his bedroom, for the purpose of de stroying a dog which had for some time past been killing fowls and eating eggs. He proceeded to 'the kitchen, where lie placed a cartridge in the rifle, which he took in his hand pointing the barrel towards the front door, and started with the object of findiug the dog. As soon as lie moved tlie rifle went off. Immediately after ho heard the crying of his tliree-year-old daugh ter, Martha, who was lying in a bag j stretcher ? about 30 or 40 feet distant 1 from where he was standing. He im mediately went to her, and a hasty ex aminat...
