Lord Kitchener. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 January 1900
Lord Kitchener. Here is a sketch of- the Sirdar, when ' he was only .Lieutenant Kitchener, R.E., taken by Colonel Taylor, of the 19th Hussars,- to look 'at the new fellah cavalry, says - Mr; J. Macdonald in 'Great Thoughts': — A tall, slim, thin-faced, slightly stoop ing : figure -in long boots, . ' cut-away dark morning- coat, and Egyptian fez somewhat tilted over his eyes — such, as I remember him, was the young soldier : who was destined to fulfil Gordon's task of ' smashing the Mahdi.' ' He's very quiet,' Taylor whispered to me, as we were getting ready for the start ; ' that's his way.' And again, with the charac teristic jerk of the head which all will remember who knew Taylor, ' He's clever.' And so, in the raw, greyish, early morning of the 8th of January, 1883, the three of us drove in our dingy rattle-trap over the white dusty road Nilewards to meet the fellah cavaiiers. Taylor did most of the talking. Kitchener expressed himself in an occasional nod, or monosyllable. . At...

SLANDER. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 January 1900
SLANDER. , Have you never stood by a river side, Where the current was strong and free, Sweeping along with restless foroe Down to the deep blue sea ? Have you never oast on the whirling tide A loaf or branch or flower, And seen it quickly borne from your sight, . Swept on by the wild waves' power ? Have you never traced the river's course, Past forest and town and mill, Till you found where it burst, a tiny spring, From the side of a far-off hill ? Well, so have I known a slanderous stream To sweep through a peaceful town, Till manhood's honour and woman's truth Were borne by the current down. And it gathered strength as it rushed along By the breath of envy stirred, From subtle hints, thrown slyly out, ? And many a thoughtless word. And a warm heart's trusting faith was . ~ dimmed By spray from the filthy tide, - - And the dearest hopes of a life were wrecked In the maelstrom deep and wide. And I traced the stream in its winding way, Till I found the source of it all— 'Twas only a...

THE DEED WAS DONE [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 January 1900
THE DEED WAS DONE An Irritable tragedian was playing ' Macbeth,' and rushed off to kill ' Duncan,' when there was no blood for the Thane to steep his hands in. 'The blood I the blood 1' exolaimed he to the agitated property man, who had forgotten it. The aotor, however, not to disappoint the audience, clenohed his fist, and, 'striking the property owner a violent blow upon the nose, coolly' washed his hands in the Btroam that burst from it, and re-entered with the usual words : ' I have done the deed. Didst thou not hear the noise ?' J
ONE TOO MANY. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 January 1900
ONE TOO MANY. A sharp country lad a little while ago suddenly took it into hiB head that he would like a walking-stick — a thing that he had never possessed before. So he saved up his pence and went to the nearest town and bought one. Walking home he felt very proud of it. In the street he was accosted by a burly farmer, who, noticing that the boy carried a atick, and a new one, and thinking that he would play a joke on him, said : 'Say, lad, how long have walking aticks been in the fashion ?' The boy looked him full in the face,' and thought for a second, then said : ' Well, 1 should say since Eve first presented Adam with a1 little Gain (caue).' The farmer was quite eonvinoed that the boy was too many for him.

REMARKABLE CAREER. . ' Do you see that old man near the frog-pond on the common? Thirty years ago that old man came to London with one suspender and a sore toe ; he also had a basket of apples which a farmer had giveriJliim. He peddled the apples and netted ninepence. ..How much do you think he is worth now?' 'Oh, a. million and a half,' said one. ' ' Two millions,' said another. ' Three hundred thousand,' was the estimate of a third. ' I give it up,' remarked number four. 1 How much is he worth ?' ' Not a farthing ; and he still owes for the basket,'
THE DEAD "A.B." [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 January 1900
?THE DEAD ' A.B.' You don't want no surpliced parson To mutter the words of God When you're 'elpin' to 'eave a messmate To the deaders' awkward squad. For there ain't no fuss in the fo'c's'le If the skipper hisself is dead — No plumes a-noddin 011 earses, And tapers around 'is 'ead. But we covers 'im up with the Ensign — 'E's 'ad 'is last ration of rum^ When they rings ' dead slow ' for the skipper Reads the story of Kingdom Kum. No organ peals, but the sea-gulls Fly wailing on port and lee, While the merry mermaids are singing To welcome the dead ' A.B.,' And a-combin' their lovely tresses In a boudoir under the sea. Poor pal 1 'e's safe for 'the Locker,' 'Is watches above are o'er, And 'is gal in the Ratcliff 'Ighway Won't see 'is face no more 1
WHEN SENTRIES DOZE. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 January 1900
WHEN SENTRIES DOZE. The hour of 4 a.m. has something mysterious about it. Cocks crow, people on the brink of death give up the ghost, everyone who is asleep sleeps sounder, and even the watchful sentry can't always keep his eyes open. At this hour people are in their weakest state, and, if life is just on the flicker, it is not surprising that it goes out. Many a man's life has been saved by a spoonful of brandy and ammonia administered just when the clock strikes four. The period of deepest sleep varies from three o'clock to five. An hour or two after going to bed you sleep very soundly; then your slumber grows gradually lighter, and it is easy enough to waken you at one or two o'clock. But when four o'clock comes you are in such a state of somnolence that you would take no notice of the end of the world. Military men are well aware of this curious fact, and they often make sudden assaults on camps or cities between three and five, for they know that at that time the most wideawake...

TENNYSON AND HIS RUSTIC NEIGHBOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 January 1900
TENNYSON AND IIIS RUSTIC NEIGHBOURS. Tho admiration of Lord Tennyson's rustic neighbours was, it must bo-confessed, some what confused and vague, especially before ho' beeiime'a tangible, understandable Lord. Ono_day, wlion Lord Tonn.v'aon was having his new study built, he overheard an amus ing conversation between two of the work men. ' Havo you seen him ?' said ono. Yes,' replied the other. ' What sort of a chap is ho ?' ' Oh, well enough for an ' overnor,' ' growled the other in reply. This story is a cliiiraccteristic ono of tho old days when the Wight islander was pro foundly exclusive, and bolieved that stout, honest fellows like himself grew only in tho Isle of Wight;'for no good, in his estimation, could bo expected from ' ovor '' tho sea. Tho shepherd at Furringford was a well known tiguro in tho old days. When ho grew old and past work, I10 was given a pension by Lord Tennyson, and I10 retired to a littlo cottage on the cstnto. One day a niece of the poet's weut to sit by...

Days of Danger. Thrilling Narratives of the Bushranging Times. True Till Death. In Seven Parts.—Period, 1845. PART VII. [Newspaper Article] — Bombala Times and Manaro and Coast Districts General Advertiser — 19 January 1900
Days of Danger. Thrilling Narratives of the Bushranging Times. True Till Death. By Captain Laoie. ..U.. . In Seven .Parts. ? Period, 184r5. ;;n*; PART VII. In the few words which the con demned man addressed to the. judge, ; he solemnly protested his innocence of the murder, and said — as it could ?do no living person harm — that he was never on the store-boat. A friend now dead had stocked a small boat for them, and afterwards effected their liberation. This, as the reader knows, was quite true, but in the eyes of the judge and spectators it only aggravated his offence. The judge passed some scathing remarks on a man being so hardened as to go to his death with a ? tissue of lies on his lips, ana that; ' view was generally adopted; At eight o'clock on the morning of the 20th Alfred Mitchell walked out ..-on the scaffold with a firm step and a smile on his lips. He cared nothing ; for the disorderly crowd below, some of whom vigorously hooted him. ' Have you anything- to say?' asked...
