SKETCHER DESERTING ON SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900

SKETOHER DESERTING ON SERVICE. One of the most serious offences known in military law is deserting while on active service. In time of peace 'Tommy' I may take French leave with compara ! tively little apprehension as to the conse quences ; but not so when he is ordered out or when he is in the enemy's country. If he is recaptured, he will in all probability be shot, or, at the very least, sentenced to a long term of imprisonment. The recognised penalty for desertion in such circumstances, however, is death, and, what is more, it is usually carried out to the letter. During mobilisation and the late operations in South Africa, numbers of soldiers have ' absented themselves with out leave/ A large draft was let out of a certain barracks the night before embar kation to have a last look round. With two exceptions, all the men returned promptly. Those two did not turn up, and eventually their comrades sailed without them. In the meantime patrols scoured the town in search of the run aw...

Disappearing London. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900

IH£ii|»i-cm-iiig London. One after another of the places in London associated with the memory of Charles Dickens is disappearing under the hands of the authorities resjjonsible for metropolitan street improvements and of property owners seeking to en hance the value of their hold ings. The new thoroughfare will (writes the London corres- ; pondent of the ' Birmingham Post ') clear away a liumbajyrf buildings with which recollec tions of tlie novelist and' of cer tain of his creations are linked. Furnival's Inn, in which the then youthful author resided during the time that his pen was engaged upen ' Tlie Pick wick Papers,' was demolished not long ago, and tlie large block of offices that will occupy its site is approaching comple tion. Happily, not far from this spot, Staple Inn — that quiet old-world nook in the heart of a bustling city, with which it seems to have little or nothing in common — has re cently escaped the destroyer, and remains as a relic of Old London, where may sti...

A Bold Project. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900

A Bold Project. A Siiigleton telegram to the 'Daily Telegraph,' savs — The fabulous prices ruling for stock in Western Australia have en couraged Mr. S. ytlazlett, jun. to undertake what may be termed a bold project. This is to overland stock from the northern districts of this colony. Ill order to test the practica bility of the scheme, Mr. Haz lett made the trip across the continent from Mt. Margaret, goldfield about 200 miles to k 1 north of Coolgardie. He accompanied by a black l^kaged 14, who was captured byfcr. Hazlett some four years ago, and who is credited with being although so youny, a past-master in the art of bush craft. On the trip over this youth was found to be of great service to his master, when traversing the trackless and waterless regions of the west ern province. Kalgoorlie was the first place of importance reached by the party after leav ing Mt. Margaret, and from there they struck out for Eucla a border town in South Aus tralia. This point was gained after ma...

j WELCOME ftlOME ! TO TROOPER R. W. KILGOUR A MAGNIFICENT RECEPTION. Friday last will be almost a red-letter day in the memory of Hay residents, for never before have .so many people gathered together under such circum stances. Of the large number of volun j tcers why left the Hay district to go I to the Boer war, Trooper Kilgour, sou of Mr. S. Kilgour, of Bagormba, was the first to return, and who can wonder that such a splendid sample ot tlie Australian soldier, about whom our friends and foes speak glowing words, received such a popular ovation. An hour before the arrival of the train, people swarmed to the railway station — on foot, on horseback, in cabs, carts, and carriages, and very soon fully five hundred people were as sembled. Outside the station the enclosure was crowded with vehicles and horses, gaily decorated with the national colors. Almost every vehicle flew several miniature flags.

PRISONS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 17 December 1900

PRISONS. London is to have a new prison in place of gloomy old Newgate. In France, at the new prison, which is about eight miles from Paris, the authorities show their belief in fresh air and sunshine, and the prison is a model sanatorium. The prison at present is the largest in the world/and takes the place of three old ones. It is built in a very simple style, but covers. with its floral gardens and residences of officials, more than half a square milo. There are as many as 1,824 cells, but as there is accommodation on the association system for about 400 more prisoners, the total it will contain is considerably over 2,000. All the prisoners are taught some trade, and they are even allowed to earn money at it, this being speat in extra food or personal necessities, but they are not allowed to purchase tobacco. At church all prisoners wear a hood, so that thoy may not be recognised by each other when out in the world again.
