THE ROMANCE OF LADYSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
THE ROMANCE OF L?ADYSM'ITH. Ladysmith, which has been brought into such prominence since the out break of the war, was named after the wife of General Sir Harry Smith. His marriage was a romance of the Napo lesonic wars. When the British under Sir Arthur Wellesley (afterwards Duke of Wellington) were driving the French out of Spain, Henry Smith was a cap tain in the British army. One night he and another young oilicer in a Spanish town which the British had just occupied were visited by two beau tiful Spanish girls of high rank, who begged their protection in the alarming circumstances in which they were placed. The protection was, of course, given, and Captain Smith fell desper ately in love with one of the girls, and subsequently married her. Afterwards he became General Sir Harry and she Lady Smith.

A GERM'AN VIEW OF THEI WAR. The London "Daily News" publishes a letter from I-I. Moller, of Lubeck, in the course of which the writer deplores the ill-timed economy or want of fore sight with which England is playing into the hands of "the bitterest and most crafty enemy she has, perhaps ever had"-the Boers. Says the writer -Will you allow a German reader of your valued paper, who is a firm be lieveer in the justice of the English cause in the present war, and a sincere admirer and well-wisher of your great nation, to tell you, though. it may not be absolute news. to you, what the general opinion in this country seems to be with regard to the chances of the war? Well, it is this, that Great Britain, by not sending out at once a crushing force of at least 100,000 fighting men as: quickly as possible, is simply sacrificing' one by one, the splendid and gallant troops that have already gone forth' It is held that before Sir Redvers Buller can get together his 40,000 fighting men, Sir G...

SOLDIERS OF FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
SOLDIERS O OF FORTUNE. There are hundreds of men drifting about the Continent, and even England, who (declares the "Spectator") either firon misconduct,: or accident, or dis content with their prospects, are out of rapport with the regular armies, and would welcome any service which pro mised good pay, plenty of adventure, and those vague "chances" which are to some natures a' atthractive as ganm bling is to others. Any of them if frankly accepted and supported by an Asiatic or African Prince may be able to turn a horde of irregulars into a re gular army, and by teaching them to construct Plevnas may make invasion from the seaboard very nearly impossi ble. R njeet Singh employed live or six such men, who not only created the extremely formidable Sikh army, but impressed on it so dleep a stamp that when in 1.848 the soldiers of the Pun jab marched on us for the second time they were still the most dangerous troops with whom we lhd ever in Asia had-to contqnd. We can see no reason wha...

CO1?:AN'DEERING EPISODES t - 0 AN UNWRITTEN PIECE OF TRANS- b VAAL HISTORY. (By'J.P.II. in the "Cape Times.") P When President Kruger gave forth to the world, in his now famous de spatch, that the Uitlanders did not want 1 the franchise, that when he offered tf them equal burgher rights if they took up arms in the defence of the Republic during the Malaboch campaign, they n refused and rebelled. When Paul Kruger gave forth this dictum, I say deliberately that he that S mounted the pulpit, of the Dopper t Church in Pretoria, and called the -ligher Powers to witness that his enemies were driving him, to break the 1 peace (previous to the war declaration), y I say it, and will prove it too, that it G was a hypocritical and untruthful a prayer, as was the document, deliber- b ately planned to mislead the world and b in order to obtain undeserved sym- ci pathy. n I do not thinlk the' story of the real issues of the commandeering incident, It and the treatment meted, out to the "five famo...

S ADARENA,"' A POUERLFU BLOOD Testimonials received from grateful patients who cannot recommend "GADA RIDNA" too highly. To the Proprietors of "Gadarena." Launceston, July 13th, 1899.

NOTES BY IXION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
NOTES BY IXION. The City programme for the 24th is well worthy of perusal. The principal items are:-Wheel Race, £23; Mile Handicap, £10; Half-Mile, £5 1Is; and Trial, £5. The club is unfortunate in losing its secretary at the present moment, and it is to be hoped that the choice of the committee will fall on some energetic person, who will keep the ball rolling. A good secretary means success. The handicaps for the A.N.A. have just been published. Splendid entries have been received for the. Wheel Race, which promises this year to be more interesting than ever. A report is going the rounds that Percy Beauchamp had a bad fall at one of the Victorian country race meets, and had broken his collar-bone. At the last series of meetings held on the Sydney ground the track was bril liantly illuminated by acetylene lamps. This is the first attempt made in Aus tralia to use the new gas for night rac ing, and from the success attained in Sydney it may not be long before this illuminant may bi ...
