CHRISTMAS IN THE ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 22 December 1899

CHRISTMAS IN THE ARMY. Daresaying that a goodish number might like to know how the Soldiers of the Queen do their Chiistmassing, we'll just give a short description of it — just the headlines and leaded parts. We don't suppose that anywhere, except in some old country houses, is Christmas kept up to its traditions more than it is in the army. Tommy makes it toe the mark for all it's w-~rth. 5?or some weeks beforehand a few men, whose fingers are not too thumby, are busy in the company store-room cutting out weird designs in coloured paper -festoons, curtains, shiblds, and tinsel fakements. The day before Christmas all hands are hard at it decorating the cleanest L'cuui ; for on this festive season the whole company messes together in o£.t. room if it's big enough to hold 't.m. all. So it tots out one mass of evergreen, holly, coloured paper and Chinese lamps. Besides these, aro tU'nlfla An fU a ?vxroll wrUK (( T.f\«m '1VU wllO 1AVO the Captain,' ' Good luck to Lieut.

I believe I have over a hundred diamond rings altocather ' Nobodv nhsArwor] i ll a bloodthirsty expression of Bill Higgins, as he made a note on his cuff.

' No,' I reply ; ' I didn't ma.' Then the Johnnie says, ' What stone?' And I show him the ring with a stone out, and of course he offers to buy me anothor 'centre stone to replace it. When I have got enough stones, I have them set in another ring, and of course rings accumulate very fast when you know a lot of oofy Johnnies. Simple, isn't it ?'

Cyclists attired in fancy dress should first mount by one of the end doors, and ride round the hall in single file to the tune of bright march music. Bicycles should be decorated, and have gaily-coloured ribbons flying from the handle-bars. If riding in single file the cyclists can ride a maize — that is, winding in and out in two lines — the effect will be extremely good. In such a case the music should be changed to a pretty slow waltz. Tortoise Race. This (is capital fun, especially if the floor is highl...

CHRISTMAS WAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 22 December 1899

CHRISTMAS WAITS. . You know tho old fashioned kind of Christmas 'Waits ? Those were tho hungry looking gentlemen, talented but half starved, musical but nearly frozon — who used to stand outside people's houses at this season commonly known . as festive, and drone out plaintive notes from in struments manufactured as musical, alternating ' Christians, Awake !' with ' Auld Lang Syne ' and ' The Roast Beo£ of Old England.' Those were the real, genuine waits known to our forefathers. Thore aro many waits in these de generate days. There is the trades man's wait — for his bill. He won't mind waiting, if he is happy enough to get it in the end. And you can take your davy that ho makes up in advance for possible defaulters, by giving you weight that is short, very short.

A Christmas Bill. WHAT CHRISTMAS COSTS JOHN BULL. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 22 December 1899

A Christmas Bill. WHAT CHRISTMAS COSTS JOIlU BULL. It is perhaps needless to remind the reader that Christmas in England is essentially a time for spending money, and it is therefore not surprising that Britishers, open-handed and generous ever, should at that period bo found signing cheques for amounts both astonishing and bewildermgto citizens of other countries. Foreigners can hardly understand how we find it possible to make so much money fly, for someone has computed that evory Englishman during this festive season lightens his pocket to such an extent as can only be equalled by ten French men, twenty Germans, or thirty Rus sians. Speaking in round numbers, there are some forty millions of people in the British Isles, and to provide these with all the good things of the time — plum puddings, roast beef, beer, wine, whisk y, turkeys, geese, phea sants, nuts, oranges, almonds, &c.— naturally necessitates the expendi ture of a startling sum. We shall not include in our bil...

If. you can't smile tie a cloth tightly about your head nnd allow vnur fnoo to lumn down until it is thoroughly rested. Wish everybody a merry Christ mas. They will say, ' Thanks ; same to you,' in the tone of a som nambulist. This affords a pleasant and cheap way of spending the day. Do not feed your dyspepsia too freely, It's all well enough to let it have a good time, but it is liable to overdo it, And lastly, dear friend, agree with everybody you meet. Temporarily forget all your pet ideas. It will do you no end of good, and your friends' and relatives will bless you for it. They havo pet ideas of their own.

Christmas Puddings. MAMMOTH XMAS PUDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 22 December 1899

Christmas Puddings* j . MAMMOTH XMAS PUDDINGS. When the history of the British plum-pudding is written, the town of Paignton, near Torquay, will figure largely therein, for it lias been the scene of many a gigantic pudding feast in the past, and probably will again be in the futuro. Early in August last four ladies, at a church bazaar held there, manufactured . . a pudding, boiled in sections and put together afterwards, standing over 4ft. high, and weighing 2501b. This' dainty, however, was one of the most diminutive that figure in the annals of Paignton's puddings, and would have looked very small if it had been compared with tho 9001b. when- made! in 1819, whioh was boiled for three days and nights in a big brewing copper suspended from a beam. This, pudding, when dragged by three horses to a green for distribution, was found not to be boiled through, and only the outside portions could be eaten, Nine hundred pounds, curi ously enough, was the weight of a pudding devised as an ad...
