TO SAVE THE WOUNDED. On that fatal day, February 27th, 1881, Mnjuba Hill was the scene of a marvellous exhibition of valour, antl an escape from death which was truly providential. While Cor poral Joseph Farmer, of the Army Ifospitnl Corps, was attending to the fallen amid a hail of bullets, the doctor and one of Uio assist ants were struck down at the same j moment. Thinking it was the re sult of an accident, ho seized a ban dage and waved it in the air, in the hope that the Boers would sec it nnc] re.spect the u-oundow.

Hairbreadth Escapes in Battle. SOLDIEKS WHO HAVE OOUJVriflU | DEATH AND LIVED. J BENEVOLENT BULLETS. I In one case a bullet which struck | a man on the tempi? passed harm lessly over the scalp ; in another, a bullet 'struck a. rib, was deflected, and, passing under the skin, found its exit on the opposite side of the body. But perhaps the most sin gulnr illustrations of the vagaries of bullets were furnished nt the batt.lo of IjRing's Nek, from which one sol dier emerged with three bullets and o'nlv two wounds to show for them, two of the balls having en tered the same wound. In another case a bullet, entering a soldier's left side, struck one of his ribs and re-emerged from the exact spot where it had entered. Hut-, even such bullets were not tjnile as benevolent as one of which Lieutenant Worslcy tells the story. "In one engagement," he says, "one of oitr oDicers got a ball in the 'i.'o.i.l Kot "<i twi-sl. ami he wns compelled to carry it looking over the right shoulder...

A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 17 July 1914

A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. Tlie showman looked worried and thoughtful. His menagerie was dense ly crowded, it. is true ; but how was he to get them out, so as to make room for those waiting to pay for admission outside ? At length a good idea occurred to him. Painting up in large letters on a piece of c iHcc : "This way to the egress," he hung it up nt an nngle of his show. The simple country people, think ing "egress" was some strange new animal just added to the collection, passed through the slit in tlie cur tain, and, to their amazement, found themselves outsISe the show. Seeing the crowd making its way to the corner where the "new animal" was on show, everybody followed, an.l the outgoing stream being so groat, no one, when once caught in its eddy, could turn back. Then the showman smiled, and let in those waiting to pay for admis sion outside the main entrance.

To-d.15 the milking machine is a success. There are unquestionably many, who will tell you otherwise, but the truth of the situation is demonstrated by tho machines that are in practical successful operation every day in the year.
