The Chinese Boxers. A REMINISCENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 14 July 1900

The Chinese Boxers. A Reminiscence. (By our Special Prevaricator J i Many people have doubtless ; wondered at the m) sterious title of 'Boxers' given to the present Chinese insurgents. Some thought perhapp, that the word was a Chinese term signifying something different to our English word, until in a recent proclamation we re it marked the term 'Boxers or ! \ fighters.' The mystification has, however, been set at rest by a }\ communication from Mr. Mun '! - chausen Secundus, who states that the following is the correct account of how the term originated : Some time ago a missionary in the flowery land, being on frugal . '.v thoughts intent, coll cted a quantity ,( of his old English newspapers and vended the same to a local butcher Earned Ku Tun. Ku Tun, how over, was curious, and being on \ familiar terms with the interpreter to the mission, induced that func tionary, by the gift of sundry cups 1'^ of tea, into which he insinuated a small quantity of a liquor much in y.;- favor at...

MAKE A NOTE OF THIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 14 July 1900

MAKE A NOTE OF THIS. If you expect to conquer in the battle of to-day, You will have to blow your trumpet in a firm and steady way. The man who owns his acres is the man who ploughs all day, And the man who keeps a humming is the man who a here to stay. But the man who advertises with a sort of sudden jerk Is the man who blames the printer be cause it doesn't work. The man who gets the business uses brainy printer's ink, Not a clatter or a splatter, but an ad. that makes you think ; Aud he plans out his advertisements, as he plans his well-boufjht stock, And the future of his business is as solid as u rock.

ONLY A WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 14 July 1900

ONLY A WOMAN. Only a woman, shrivelled and old, The prey of the winds and the prey of the cold, Cheeks that are Bhrunken, Eyes that are sunken, Lips that were never o'er bold ! Onfy a woman, forsaken and poor, Asking an alms at the grand church door. Hark to the organ ! Roll upon roll, The waves of its music go over the soul ! Silks lustle paBt her, Thicker and faster ; The great bell ceeses its toll. Fain would she enter, but not for the poor Swingeth wide open this grand church door. Only a woman ! In far-off days Hope caroled to her its happiest lays : Somebody missed her, Somebody ki«6ed her. ' Somebody crowned her with praise. Somebody faced up the battles of lifa. Strong for her sake was mother or wife. Somebody lives with a tress of her hair Light on his heart whero the death shadows are ; Somebody waits for her, Opening the gates for her, Giving delight for despair. Only a woman — nevermore poor — Dead in the anow at the grand church door ! Man is made of dust ; along comes ...

How China is Governed. j( ? MR. QUONG TART SPEAKS. 1 ? In the course of a recent inter view with a Daily Telegraph repor ter Mr. Quong Tart, who is well versed on what has led up to the present crisis, imparted some inter esting information. r f f j China's first ruler was Pau Ku, i', !j- reign commencing 2953, B.C., his i]/ ,[ line reigning 748 years. Down to Jj j 1278 A.D. 21 Chinese dynasties in |f¥ turn held the throne. In 1278 a | ff Mongolian line came upon the scene, |n and held sway for 89 years. From j^|]f 1368 to 1628 the Chinese were governed by Chinese rulers, but fltf then a most cxtroardinary event | ] took place.

PURELY BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Elector — 21 July 1900

PURELY BUSINESS. It is stated on good authority that a syndicate, which has Cecil Rhodes at ifcs head, has taken over the great Hawkuss Hill mines, at Hill End. It is said the foreign buyers of wool in Sydney have lost enormously on their high price purchases of last year. It will take them two years to recuperate. Tea men in Sydney anticipate higher prices owing to the Chinese war. Many specifics are lauded as cures for colds and bronchitis, butNatara is prov ing the real marvel. It is a most pleo - sant and moBt eifective remedy, and is a capital thing for children. It overtakes a cold and prevents bronchitis. People thought the days of the sewing machine were over. The Singer Com pany's returns, however, run up higher and higher every year. The head Aus tralasian office is iu Wynyard Square, and is palatial in extent.
