THE INNISKILLINGS (27TH). AN ADDRESS FROM LORD ROBERTS. ("Fermanagh Times.") [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
T'HE INNISKIILLINGS (27TH). AN ADDRESS FROM LORD ROBERTS. ("Fermanagh Times.") In anticipation of Lord Roberts's visit great activity prevailed through out the morning among all ranks of the Inniskilling Fusiliers at Mullingar on Monday, October 30. The battalion consist of twenty-nine officers and 980 rank and file, and of this number twenty- five officers and 943 men were on pa- rade, Lieutenant-Colonel Thackeray being in command. In physique the Inniskillings very much resemble one of the regiments of foot-guards. They are all finely developed, well set-up men, and their average height is far above that of the ordinary line regi- ments. Many admiring comments were made by the spectators on the splendid appearance of the corps as it marched and- countermarched into different formations. Lord Roberts arrived at the, railway station about 1 o'clock, and immediately proceeded to the barracks. On the conclusion of the inspection the battalion was formed up in close order, and Lord Rob...
SOLDIERS' FAMILIES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
SOLDIERS' FAMILIES. &nbsp; Lady Roberts has issued the follow- ing appeal on behalf of the destitute families of soldiers left in Ireland on the departure of our troops for South Africa:-Thc generous response I re- ceived last year in Ireland to my appeal for the British and Foreign Sailors' Society encourages me to feel confident that I shall not now appeal in vain on behalf of the wives and children of our soldiers who are now at this time freely devoting their lives to the cause of liberty and justice for our fellow subjects in South Africa. Many of these wives and children are, alas! even now widows and orphans, and I feel sure that no patriotic Irishman or woman who reads the accounts in the newspapers of the magnificent courage and self-sacrifice of our Irish regi- ments at the battle of Dundee, and who can appreciate their devoted and daunt- less bravery, as well as the glorious reputation for chivalry and loyalty that they are building up for their beloved. Ireland, ...
RINGAROOMA ELECTORATE WEST SCOTTSDALE, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
RINGAROORA ELECTORATE &nbsp; WEST SCOTTSDALE, Monday. The time for choosing a member for this electorate is now drawing near. In the absence of a good local man, the name that would give the greatest satisfaction amongst those that have been mentioned is that of Mr. Henry Button, who,I am told, is willing to allow himself to be nominated should a local man not be forthcoming. In Mr. Button this electorate would have a member whose sympathy is with the pioneer agriculturists, and has been so for the past 23 years. I have read that the "Examiner" has always fought for the benefit of the farmer, and I would like to remind the electors that the movement for the establish- ment of the first Tasmanian dairy com- pany was not only advocated by the "Examiner," but Mr. Button took an active interest in it. He was the chair- man of the provisional directorate, and worked hard to float the company. It not being a success was no fault of Mr. Button's. Time after time he drew the attenti...
BUSH FIRES. ON THE WEST COAST. TERRIBLE FIRES AT ROSEBERY. ROSEBERY, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
BUSH FIRES. ON THE WEST COAST. TERRIBLE FIRES AT ROSEBERY. ROSEBERY, Monday. The New Year was ushered in here in a disastrous manner. Early this morning a bush fire started in the vicinity of the Emu Bay railway sta- tion, very quickly destroying a number of buildings around the station. With a strong westerly wind blowing, the fire ran in the direction of the town- ship, sweeping towards the north end of the settlement with alarming ra- pidity. The fire took all before it de- stroying 13 dwellings,several people los- ing all their effects. One man lost, be- sides his camp and belongings, his cash savings of £C15. The wind now abated, fortunately, as other fires were work- ing along the river to the south of the township, which is now to all appear- ance safe as far as can be learned. At the time of wiring the losses on the township are:-Mrs. Turner, shop, dwelling, and effects; P. Hughes, dwell- ing and portion of effects; J. Cobbett, ditto; Fitzpatrick and M'Lagan, dwell- ing and ...

ONLY ONE FLAG IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
ONLY ONE FLAG IN SOUTH AFRICA. It is worse than idle to talk of magnanimity; we simply cannot afford the luxury. The Afrikander states will be treated with justice; there need be no fear on that point. But justice itself-justice to South Africa and the Empire-requires that their indepen- dence shall cease. There can hence- forth be but one flag in South Africa, and that the sign of British dominion. This inevitable rearrangement will not be altered, but it may be made more difficult by such utterances as those of Lord Ripon and Mr. Bryce.-"The Globe."
"I HAD A TERRIBLE COUGH" "WHICH CAUSED BLEEDING FROM THE LUNGS." [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
"I HAD A TERRIBLE COUGH' &nbsp; "WHICH CAUSED BLEEDING FROM THE LUNGS." Of all the remedies employed to overcome the tendencies towards con- sumption, the most effectual is Scott's Emulsion. For half a century cod- liver oil has held the lead over all other remedial agents in the treatment of chronic throat and lung complaints, and for 25 years Scott's Emulsion has been considered the most effectual and the easiest form in which to take this oil. Here is a case of a gentleman who was suffering from a chronic cough and bleeding from the lungs. He says: "95 Pickering road, "Parkwood Springs, Sheffield, England, "September 7th, 1898. "Dear Sirs,-About five years ago I had a severe attack of Influenza, which left me with a weak chest. During ARTHUR PALMER. that time I had to stay away from work many times, owing to weak- ness. I had a terrible cough, which caused &nbsp; bleeding from the lungs. This became so seri- ous that in March, 1897, I Was obliged to stay at home. ...

DIPHTHERIA FROM A CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
DIPHTHERIA FROM A CAT. At the meeting of the Beckenham School Board, on Friday, the clerk (Mr. R. G. Mullen) said a very singular case of diphtheria had come under his no- tice from a neighbouring parish. In one house four children contracted the disease one after another, and all efforts to trace the origin failed, until the medical oflicer noticed that the family cat looked sick. This aroused a suspicion in the doctor's mind, which resulted in the discovery that the cat had diphtheria in a very bad form. The affected children had been in the habit of playing with the cat, and there is no doubt that they caught the disease from it.
SCIENCE AND HEALTH. WIRELESS TELEPHONY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
SCIENCE AND HEALTH. WIRELESS TELEPHONY. Mr. Howell, the blind electrician, in a communication to the press, says that he has demonstrated the practic- ability of wireless telephony under earth and through water. At Leeds, over three miles of ground, he obtained clear transmission of speech without any wire, and he similarly communi- cated across a lake of fresh water four miles in extent. Mr. Howell points out that there would be no difficulty in passing ships speaking to one an- other if there was the necessary elec- tric coil and plate on the side of each vessel. He also thinks that we might easily speak across the Channel by means of induction without wire, through the smooth waters.
WHAT IS HEALTH? [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
WHAT IS HEALTH? Health is the regular performance of all the vital functions. One vital function is the distribution of the blood in proper proportion to every part. An other is the taking into the lungs 18 times a minutes of so much air that one-fifth of it shall oxygenate every blood cell. Another is the digestion of so much food that by it the body-heat shall be kept up and the wastes of tissues be rebuilt. Another is such activity of all the glands that a suffi- ciency of bile, intestinal fluid, gastric juice, saliva, etc., shall be secreted to accomplish their several purposes. Chills always disturb the circulation of the blood. Over-eating and eating im- proper foods always injure digestion. Surface chills partially ligature the veins and dangerously distend the ar- teries. Distended arteries are the pre- lude to congestion. Congestion is the near forerunner of inflammation. In- flammation stagnates, overheats, rots. Lazy peptic glands mean dyspepsia. Sluggish bile means const...
PNEUMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
PNEUMONIA. The most successful treatment of pneumonia consists in giving a patient a hot-water bath. When nothing bet- ter was at hand I have often called for a tea-kettleftul of boiling hot water and a bucket of cold water, a wash basin, and a bath or large wash tub. Seating the patient on a stool in the tub, covered with a sheet, having the water mixed in a wash-basin, as hot as it can be borne, I ladle it on the sheet covering the patient. From the tea-kettle of boiling water and the pail of cold water the wash-basin is kept replenished. The hot bath is kept up for 30 or 40 minutes. If the patient complains of suffocation, cut a hole in the sheet and let his nose out. While under this simple operation patients by inhaling the hot vapour will expec- torate a large amount of mucus; the heart action is improved, and the dys- pnoea is greatly relieved.-Dr. Chase.
RACE FOR LIFE BETWEEN PIGEON AND SEA EAGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
RACE FOR LIFE BETWEEN PIGEON AND SEA EAGLE. The passengers on the ferry-boat Piedmont, from Oakland, were treated to the spectacle of a speed test between a sea eagle and a carrier pigeon, in which the smaller bird won by saving its life. When the boat was opposite Goat Island, P. 11. Schlotzhauer, a pigeon fancier of Alameda, released five birds. Among them was the famous five-year-old homer, Duke of Rich- mond, who has proved his right to a title of nobility in more than a score of long distance flights. The pigeons rose into the air and circled several times. Four of them turned towards the east, but the fifth, which was the Duke of Richmond, was seen to flirt and drop to- wards the Piedmont. Then the pas- sengers made out that the pigeon was being pursued by a large bird. The two birds were at an elevation of 1000 feet when the chase began, with the carrier a short distance in the lead. As by instinct he dropped straight for the place where his master had released him, and landi...
BRITANNIA'S PICCANINNY: NATAL [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 2 January 1900
BRITANNTA'S PICCANINNY: NATAL She's the smallest of the children, In the dear Old Lady's shoe, And yet the lass has shown the rest The sort of thing to do; For while they have been waiting, Why, she's knocked things Into shape, And shamed Miss Wacht-en-Beetje And her cousins at the Cape. She's Britannia's Plccaninny; If she isn't very big, She's a Daughter of the Empire, So she doesn't care a fig, Tho' she's landed in the front of it- And bound to bear the brunt of it; The grim and grisly brunt of it! Natal! -"Natal Advertiser."
