The attack was pressed so closely that some- of the British Light Infan try actually entered the trenohes, cap turing six Boers.

Eight thousand men, being half of Lieutenant-General Methuen's com mand, were engaged during the fight ing ou tho 11th instant. A detachment of tho Guards Brigade destroyed a...

BOXING-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 22 December 1899
BOXING-DAY. A wonderful time is this Boxing-Day, With nothing to get and with dozens to pay, When all the folk who havo worried me ' Come adding extortion to injury. The butcher comes with his hand to his hat, ' He teases my dog and is rude to my oat, But the language suggests with a smile verv sweet, That I might have been starved were it not for his meat. The milk boy arrives with affectionate talk, Though the milk that he brings is like water and ohalk, And he speaks in a manner as though it were true That our meals have depended on pints of ' sky blue-' And the lamplighter states moat obligingly That he lights the lampB juat to favout mo ; And tho dustman is equally ready to tell That 'tis only for me that he jingles his bell. Then the maiden who maddons me day by day, ? By leaving her pots and her pails in my way, Who washes the front with an ocean of water Onioy-oolddays, with intention to slaughter — Sho also expeots to be tipped for her wiles ; And the charwoman meets me wit...

A CHRISTMAS STORY. 'While Shepherds Watched.' [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 22 December 1899
A CHRISTMAS STORY. ' While Shepherds Watched/ By Adeline Sehgeant. A tall, spare, dark-eyed man, with a violin case ia his hand, came up the narrow stairs three steps at once, as though he were anxious to reach the little attic-room which was his destination. There was a lamp in the hall below, but no light on the stairs or landing save the dim gleam which came through the skylight iu the roof, aud at six o'clock iu the evening on tho twenty-fourth of December it , is needless to remark that the top storey was enveloped in total dark ness. But Guy Fairfax! seemed to 'kaow his way by instinct, and did not pause until he reached the scratched and , shabby-looking door which formed the entrance to,, his abode. There he stopped short. waited, and listened for a moment, arrested by a sound that issued from the room. It was the sound of a violin, faintly played', as though the instrument it selt were'small and the hand of the player weak.' Presently there arose also a sweet little thread ...
