The Week's War. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 May 1900
The ttleek'sttiar. General Brabant's force has relieved Wepener. The British have advanced since Sunday unopposed. Four thousand five hundred Boers are in full flight from the district with ox waggons, and General French is in hot pursuit. The Boers have been shelled from their trenches at Four teen Streams. President Kruger has collected an enormous quantity of stores in the Lydeuburg district for the purpose of a final stand. The British have occupied De Wet's Dorp unopposed. All the country in the neighbourhood of the Bloemfontein waterworks is now cleared. British prisoners at Pretoria are being tieated barbarously. Thirty-five missing men of the Worcester regiment lost their way searching for water, stumbled on a Boer camp, and were captured at Roode Kop. General French's cavalry drove the Boera into the plain, and he is pursuing them with machine guns. President Kruger was completely sur prised by the British movements, and imagined that Lord Roberts would re main stationary f...

The temperature was milder than in Northern Mouaro, being away from the Saowy Mountains. The altitude of Bombala waB 2500ft. The proposed Federal site did not connect with the town of BDmbalo, and was four miles from the town.' The rain fall was 29in. near the coast, and where the water supply would come from it was over 30m. The average covered 10 years. Snow never re mained on the ground one day. Sou thern Monaro was lower than north. Although cold winds blew in winter, they were of short duration, an...
Boer Threat to Destroy Johannesburg. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 May 1900
Boer Threat to. Destroy Johannes burg. Mn. Montagu White (Boer agon!) writes to the New York World that he cannot see how, for strange reasons, Johannesburg can be left as a bate from which (he British could operate agaicst Pietoria, as tho cover which the buildings affords, the vast amount rf supplies stored there,' the town's proximity fco Pretoria, the water sup ply, and other things make Johannes burg invaluable to invaders bent on taking Pretoria. Therefore, Mr. Wtiite adds, I think its destruction by the Beers is necessary ap a military measure. The Iobb "would be at least 150 millions. I hope something will be done to satisfy both belligerents before such a catastrophe to civiiiea- ' tioh happens; but the Boris .will nacrifice, Johannesburg if they are forced to. Then it will be a fight to the last drop of blood for the posses sion of Pretoria.

A NOBLE CORPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 May 1900
A NOBLE CORPS. Thk chiefs of the army operating in South Africa have ali been illustrated and written about., well or ill, accord ing to the taste of the person referring to them. Likewise the journalists and diplomats, and especially those who have sacrificed a portion of their wealth to odd to the comfort of those at the front and the welfare of those they have lt-ft behind them. The Ambulance party, however, has been neglcc'.ed ; and what department so deserving of notice, honor, and com mendation. The Ambulance of the British Corps is doing the noblo work for which it was designed, unflinch ingly and with entire heart and eoul. From everything we read, the brave wen and women who comprise it have practically given their Hives for the benefit of their fellows, as, unlike the latter, they seek little or no protec tion, trusting to the humanity of their calling to Eave themselves from in human treatment. Every battlefield has seen this noble corps at its pott, and whether in calm o...

That it is about time the Association •>ot a "move on to present the Diy River Cricket Club with last season 3 trophies for first aud second grade. That the annual plain and fancy dress band hall is to be held ou the 15th of next month—the memory of its success last year is still fresh in the minds of all; That there is a young man in Co. bargo so polite that he raises his hat to Iiis own reflection in the gla.-s windows as ho parses by. That the Scotch Banks hold M=y millions unclaimed balances—a fair i,tart for a State Bank. That a big matrimonial event will take place in Cobu: go about the; middle of next month.

Another Tribute to British Liberty. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 May 1900
I Another Tribute to British Liberty. Bret Hap.tr, (he famous American writer—who is there who has not laughed or cried at his creations 1— has been saying some nice things on the subj et of British liberty. Like Do Lome, Max O'Roll, and many other distinguished foreigners, Mr. Haite found that liberty in England had reached its acme ; that no other country in this regard could compare with her. SpeRking to an American audience the other day, he instanced many occasions on which he hid received proof of this abounding quality, and being a humorist treated the matter in a way to app?al to his audience's risibility. Do they stop traitors talking in South Africa ? he asked. On tho contrary, when re cently there was a great meeting cf the Africander Bond the Government reduced fares on the railways, to enable people to attend it, Again : Do (hey send the police to public meetings to stop inflammatory talk 1 No, bnt tbey send those officers to protect seditionists from the inevitable rag...
Why doesn't Roberts Advance. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 May 1900
Why doesn't Roberts Advance What's Roberts doing, anyway 1 Why doesn' he advance! It is six mouths tince he first promised to help Mafeking. Why is he leaving Baden Powell to die like a rat in a trap V, Mr. Balfour recently paid a high tribute to ' the man in the street,' placing his intelligence and acumen upon what, possibly, less competent judges deem too high a level. Whe ther of Loudon or Sydney, or Cape, town, or San Francisco, the English speaking " mail in the street' ever seems to me to think and speak pretty much the same. And the foregoing are fair samples of the expressions one hears at all hours in all parts of i Sydney. Yet .we have been officially informed of the reasons for Lord Roberts' delay, and even if we were not, no belter reason could be adduced | than the pairif ully evident fact that it I .inquires 40,000 picked troops to clear the enemy from his rear and right flank. No general would be mad enough to proceed Pretoriawards and leave his lines of communicatio...

NOTES EROM QUAA.MA.. (By Ajax.) Suppose you thought I was dead Mr. editor, but I'm not. Tact is I went to Sydney thinking ther6 was good money in rats' scalps, but I went down" bad. Rata are too hard to catch. There's nothing like possum snaring, although you do get a ruraper now and then. I am glad to get back to this part and hope that I will get enough • wool' to carry me over the winter. I haven't settled down yet but I send along a few items. The annual meeting of the Qu^ama tennis club was held on Wednesday of last week, aud there was a good atten dance. Mr. J. Ringland J.P., pre1 sided.

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 May 1900
CHAPTER IV. Mabel Melancy got no tleep that n:gbt. For one tiling, the wind, roared like a demon, howling, shriek, ing around the old red brick house as if 'it would beat it to the ground Tlie walls fairly shook at timeP, and Mabel ft-lt very nervous, very lonely, j very cruelly used al'.ogether. The face of Mr. Ralph Seymour as it had last looked at her haunted her. She did not like a man to chauge like i that; there was something uncanny about it. Maitland had described Seymour as a timid man, and one easily snubbed ; he had also called him a gentleman, and at first si^ht he had appp.ired all that, but now— Mabel shivered as she recalled the expression and voice with, which he had said; * You will have to put up with me as your lover—as ybur hus band.' He had looked distinctly dangerous, and it was ehe who felt timid and helpless. ' But I never will marry him— never. They can't force me into matrimony in England. But oh! dear, I feel frightened. That wind has got on my nprves. I a...
