HOW I KEPT HOUSE IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900

HOW I KEPT HOUSE IN SOUTH AFRICA. On the whole, I nm inclined to think that house -keeping in South Africa com pares very favourably with house-keeping in the United Kingdom. I once kept house for nearly three years in a little up-country town m Cape Colony ; and perhaps my experiences may not provo unintfiresfcinn- or uniimt-i-i-i.-tiira vaiHnrc ! aud particularly so to any one who may be thinking of settling in that country on the conclusion of the dreadful waa. Wo were a party of three — my husband, myself, and my husband's nephew, a lud with consumptive tendencies. After some trouble we rented a house— four large rooms and a kitchen, all on the same levol — at X4- pt*r month, rates, water, £c., inclusive. As we didn't know hew long wo should 6tay iu the town wo decided not to spend too much money in furniture, and alter reflection wo con cluded that our bebt plan would be to purchase what we wanted from the local auctioneer. It ib u common practice for people in tho colony to se...

SHORT STORY PLAY ON. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900

[?] PLAY OjNT. By Elizabeth Sykes. 'All the ' good-byes' had been said. The hour had struck. All those going away had travelled the first inch, of their journey, and those staying wero loft behind. George Gerrard leaned out of a first class caxriagc-wjndow, matching the various adieus. As the train slowly got ' way on ' ho glanced along the platform , wondering if perchance he would e-ee that unfortunate, the man who is just too late ; and, as he looked, he involuntarily turned the handle of his carriage-door, for, running along the train, evading the porters' warning arms, was a tall, slender girl of about seventeen, carrying a violin case. ' She seemed greatly distressed, and, as she met Gerrard's eyes, she cried\ out distractedly, appealingly : ' Oh, I must go I must go?' In a second he had opened the door, stretched out a helping hand, and drawn her into the carriage, heedless of the righteous fury of the porters and tho guard. The girl sank panting on the seat, and the Liverpoo...

A Remarkable Telephonic Development. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900

A Remarkable Telephonic Development. In the October number of the 'Windsor Magazine' there is an unusually interesting ar ticle on the new telephone M. Germain has recently brought before the world, and that is calculated to work a revolu tion in the present system of telephonic communication. 'The loud speaking telephone, as everyone knows, is no novelty. Edison, many years ago, invented one which gave good results under favourable conditions, but was impracti cable for general use. In this apparatus a chalk cylinder, in contact with the microphone, had to be kept iu constant motion, either by clockwork or by turning a crank. Large numbers of these instruments were imported into England, but it was found that the damp climate affected the chalk cylinders and rendered them useless. Our loud-speaking telephones patented from time to time proved un satisfactory by reason of their cost or uncertainty working. The German tele phone, on the other hand, is simple, aiid consequently cheap ...

General News [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900

General Ncirs A shocking incident occurred on Thursday afternoon at Folly Point, Middle Harbour. A young man named Thomas Houlston and a companion swam to the opposite shore for the purpose of securing a boat, wjiich they believed was there. They found that the boat had disappeared, and thereupon determined to swim back. When about twenty yards from the bank Houlston, who was swimming behind his com panion, called out and disap peared, having been drawn under water by a shark. Several people on the bank who saw what had occurred, pulled to the spot in a boat, and discovered the dead body of Houlston, who had been dis embowelled by the monster. Mr. R. Buckley, who has been telegraph master at Deni- . liquin for 25 years, was on Thursday night presented with an illuminated address by the \ telegraph and members of the j staff of the local post-office. Mr. Buckley has been in the telegraph service for 39 years, ' and has been retired on a pen sion. He was also presented with a piece of...

An Afghan was taking the camels to water a quarter mile away, Cockram remaining in camp. Many blacks were in sight, and Cockram was suddenly speared in the side above the hip.

'IT'S AN ILL WIND,' ETC. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900

'IT'S AN ILL WIND/ ETC. I was once reporting the assizes for a provincial doily. There were two courts sitting, and, as I could not be in two places at once, I was in the habit of going to the second court and getting the sentences, after they had been delivered, from the clerk. I made a note of the fact that Thomas (x— had got six months for housebreaking ; and this in formation I passed on to another reporter. It was duly recorded in our respective papers the next morning; but when I arrived at the court T found to my dis may that there were two Thomas G ? -s. and that the one I had sentenced was charged with assault and not with house breaking, and had yet to be tried. If he should be acquitted, a libel action against the papers was certain. The representative of the other paper was loud in his reproaches. He went into the other court to watch the progress of the case : aud when he returned, his face was beaming. ' It's all right/ he said, ' he's got six months — the judge said i...

OCEAN-CARRIER OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900

OCEAN-CARRIER OF THE WORLD. Britain's position as the ocean-carricr of the world is more largely dependent upon the skill of tho engineers, who supervise the work ia the stoke-hold aud amid the clamour of the engine room, than is quite appreciated. The ship builders may construct the most perfect ships, yet, unless these vest-els are run with an intelligent appreciation of their possibilities as to economy as well as efficiency, such excellence will not avail. One marine engineer may save in coal J£1 fer every hour the ship is at sea, and more in upkeep, as compared with an other having the same machinery, but lacking in the qualities which make for i economy.

TALK INTO THE PHONOGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900

TALK INTO THE PHONOGRAPH. One of the wealthiest of the Park Lane City magnates has put the phonograph to practical use. He drives to business daily, taking with him a phonograph, and into the confiding instrument he pours messages, short letters, and all manner of miscellaneous instructions. When he alights the machine is handed over to the head clerk, who takes his instructions from it, at a great saving of the millionaire's time and money. Several well-known authors who turn out a great quantity of work also use the phonograph. In about two hours four or five thousand words can be recorded by the phonograph, and the cylinders are then passed on to another phonograph, which repeats it to a secretary, who takes it down with a typewriter. After that, the author readB his work through, mak ing such alterations as required before submitting it to the editor.

JUST TO PLEASE HER. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900

JUST TO PLEASE HER. Anothor Manilla story comes from a returned American soldier. In one of the hospitals a busy, looking, duty loving woman bustled up to a wounded soldier who lay gazing at the coiling above his cot. ' Can't I do something for you, my poor fellow ?' said the woman imploringly. I The * poor fellow looked up languidly. The only things he really wanted just at that time were his discharge and a box of cigars. When he saw the strained and anxious look on the good woman's face, however, he felt sorry for her, and with perfect self-possession he replied — * Why, yeB; yon can wash my face if you want to.* 'I'd bo only too glad to/ gasped the visitor eagerly/ ' All right/ said the cavalier gallantly, ' go ahead. It's been washed twenty-one 1 times already to-day, but I don't mind going through it once again if ifll make I you any happier.' Laziness grows on people; it begins in cobwebs, and ends in iron chains. Virtue is its own reward, but most people think it should offe...

Narandera Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 December 1900

Narandcra Notes. Tiiree Wal youngsters met with painful accidents during the past few holidays. A. little son of Mr Jas. Armstrong, while riding a pony was thrown and had his shoulder disloca ted ; Mr Paul Mattes' little boy fell from a roof and broke his arm, and little Casey fell out of a tree fracturing liis thigh. Each little sufferer is progressing favorably. It will be remembered that I at the late hospital inquiry, Dr -- Watt read a letter which he I said he had received from Mr. Chas. Ireland, in which it was written that Mr Alex Brown (one of the complainants re garding hospital mismanage ment) had requested him (Ire- 1 land) to ' rake up any dirty cases he could.' Mr Brown, through the press, at once r bluntly denounced tlie author as a liar, and since then Mr Ireland has not seen fit to pub liely put in his disclaimer. We - are credibly informed, however, that he emphatically denies having written the letter, or any knowledge of it. We be lieve the matter is not to be all...
