Deeply re- gretted. IN MEMORIAM. BUTT.—In fond and loving remembrance of my dear husband, James Butt, who fell asleep in Jesus at Sheffield, January 2, 1899. Forget him! No! I never will, I loved him here, I love him still; He parted from this world of pain, He only died to live again.

GREAT HEAT WAVE. 100 IN THE SHADE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900

GREAT HEAT WAVE. 100 IN THE SHADE. Intense heat was again experienced yesterday, and the weather was the general topic of conversation. A hot northerly wind continued during the greater part of the day, and the highest thermometer readings were Sun 155deg., and shade 100deg., the lat- ter, it is believed, being a record for Launceston. The weather has proved very trying to a number of persons, and on Mon- day Mr. B. L. Thomson, a well-known athlete residing at West Tamar, re- ceived a sunstroke at the Caledonian sports gathering, and for several hours his condition was critical, but yester- day he had improved considerably. On Monday, when returning from Long- ford, four horses succumbed from the effects of a sunstroke. They were owned respectively by Messrs. G. Doo- lan, Owen and Spearman, W. J. Southerwood, and J. Butcher. Yester- day there was a strong demand by horse-owners for head coverings, The heat on the N.W. Coast and in the north generally has been excessive during the pa...

MODDER RIVER BATTLE. A SOLDIER'S ACCOUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900

MODDER RIVER BATTLE. A SOLDIER'S ACCOUNT. The following account of the battle of Modder River is taken from a pri- vate letter written by a soldier who took part in the engagement: I can assure you it was a long and weary fight for fourteen long hours, and brave men were falling right and left. The Boers had a strong posi- tion along the banks of the river and among the houses in the village. There was a lot of them, but they stuck to it well into the night. We left our camp about 5.30 on the 28th, and marched about five miles when the enemy started fire on us. Then we at once opened out, and started to go for them. They seemed to have plenty of big guns, and one murderous Hotch- kiss gun, which did a lot of damage. They were also firing explosive bul- lets; in nearly every case our wounded were wounded by explosive bullets. Poor men, they were moaning at night when we went back over the river again. They lay in rows. being dressed. No one in the world can imagine the horrors of a b...

THE OPEN DOOR. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900

THIE OPEN 10)R01. An Important step has been taken in the direction of establishing the policy of the "open door" to the world's trade in China. Some time ago Colonel Jolnt IHay, the American Secretary of State, made a prloposa.l to the other Powers that they should agree to the "open door" policy. It is announced that the five chief Powers that havo large interests in China, namely, Great Britain, Franeo, Germany, Russia, and Japan, have given in their adherence to Colonel Hay's proposal. The "Argus" New York correspondent, writing on' November 14, said:-"Our Government has been, slow to define its attitude toward the possible partition of China, but ,at last it has taken. a decided stand with respect to the trade questions in volved. It is an open secret that the Governments of. Great Britain, Ger many, Russia, and France have been asked to give assurances in writing that the tralde privileges granted to, this country by China in existing treaties will be respected and prese'rved ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900

The Duke of Cambridge is two months, all but two days, older than the Queen. His Royal Highness was born on March 26, 1819, and is a first not a second--cousin of her Majesty. Till recently the employment of electricity in any shape or form in Con stantinople was strictly forbidden. Incredible as it may appear, the Sultan naively imagined that a dynamo must have something to do with the manu facture of dynamite. Electricity in the hands of a Vienna doctor has turned the Ethiop white. The negro went to the hospital from an Aus trian gaol, and was treated with elec tricity for four months. At the end of that time he was cured, and also completely bleached. EAT JONES' IXL JAMS.*

CORRESPONDENCE. THE WAR IN SOUTH AFRICA. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900

CORRESPONDENCL TIIE. WAR IN SOUTH AFRICA. (To the Editor.) Sir,--I have read with great pleasure your articles on the above at different times. Yon do ample justice to the bravery of our men; and at the same time you correctly criticise the bung. ling that has led to the present posi tions. I have seen it frequently remarked the public are impatient for news of action. That is just what I am not thirsting for, as I consider our strength lies in standing still, or rather in taking up good defensive positions. The war authorities should have known there was no chance of relieving Ladysmith, or the other places, in the face of an en trenched foe with superior artillery, and having possession of all the strategic points, with the bridges and railways destroyed. After the British Government had played into the hands of the Boers by neglecting to fortify our provinces, and allowing them to im port the most complete and efficient ar tillery in the world, and then were idiotic enough to wai...

THE LONGFORD WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900

THE LONGFORD WATER SUPPL7. (To the Editor.) Sir,-The present unsatisfactory state of the Longford water supply urges me to ask you to grant me spare for a few remarks, as this seems an opportune time to do so. I feel in. tensely the great inconvenience and loss the ratepayers are suffering at this trying time, when a copious supply of water is such an urgent necessity. The majority of the trust have all along seen the necessity of having the new scheime of supply available before the dry weather should set it, but on ac count of the difliculty thrown in their way the progress and completion of the works have been seriously delayed. Those who are so ready to throw the blame on the Water Trust need to be told that had it not been for the public spirit displayed by a majority of the trust-viz., Dr. Anderson, Mr. Pullen, and myself-in undelrtaking the per sonal responsibility for the advance oy the Commercial Bank of a sum of £800, in order that the work might be pushed -on, so that whe...

SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 4 January 1900

SPORTINGI Monday was undoubtedly a royal day for equine ladies at Flemington. Silver - moor beat another mare in Veloce in the Standish Handicap, and she accom plished the work in rare style. On Boxing Day she ran at Caulfield in the Malvern Handicap, and was beaten out of a place, but this defeat would not have been so pronounced had she not been hemmed in on the rails at a criti cal part of the engagement. Silver moor, who is trained at Caulfield by M. Carmody, was bred in Tasmania by Mr. RI. O'Connor. She is by Town Moor, from Silvermere, by the Mel bourne Cup winner The Assyrian, from Silver Thread, by St. Albans (sire of Malua), and prior to her important suc cess on Monday had done nothing of consequence, although her private gal loping and the way she shaped in pub Slic encouraged the anticipation that she would sooner or later do something above the common. On the contrary, The Bride presented herself on Mon day (says the "Argus"), bearing the most atractive credentials. She...
