AMUSING INNOCENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 6 January 1899

AMUSING INNOCENCE. Mr. J. Barnard James, in a magazine article on ''Quinta Life inAigentiua,' throws light on a somewhat novel phase of life, and incidentally gives to the world one of those bits of amusing innocence that enliven the stay iu a strange land. Quinta life is analogous to English or American seaside or couutry life. A gentle man who lives in town generally has a quinta, or country scat, a short distance out in the country, for the purpose of supplying his table, with fruit nnd vegetables. In summer the family resort thither to slay through the hot season that lies between the beginning of November arrd and the end of February. It ih regarded as a temporary abode, and the residents ars prepared to rough it more or less. There are, or would be to an American or an Englishman, a few drawbacks to this life of rural simplicity. For example, whilst the writer was staying at a quintii.it so happened that a horse fell dead just outside the gate. VUIV WKllt 11. UUUIU llUb lie II...

WAR INDEMNITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 6 January 1899

WAR INDEMNITIES. The practice of exacting money from a eouqueji-d foe is, in its present form, some what modern. In ancient times the victor despoiled Uicc.iii my he bad overcome, sacked cities, and took whatever of value he could carry away. Now Ire respects private pro perty; but be makes the conquered nation pay the whole cost of the war. In either case tire practice is analogous to that of civil courts, which assets costs upon the defeated party. The four greatest wars of the last thirty five years have all been followed by exactions of this kind. After Prussia defeated Austria in the ' seven weeks' war ' of 1866. she demanded of her adversary twenty million llinfers. or about three million pounds ster ling; a modest sum, as indemnities go. She made similar exactions also from the states which allied themselves with Austria. This was in addition t-j territorial concessions. Five year's later Krauce was defeated by Prussia, and besides being compelled to give the provinces of Als...

A Sharp People. P. Marion Crawford,- the tioveJlst, who has met many Armenians In the East, says of them:— 'I dpufit* whether they are- the Innocent, confiding,' Inoffensive Christians that the' American, people believe ttiem to be. My experience -with them is that they are the sharpest. shrewdest, and trickiest of all Eastern people. They . say in Turkey that It takes ten Jews to equal one Armenian, and five Armenians to'equal one 'Persian in sharp business dealing. They have many able men among them, and I doubt not that their leaders have to a certain extent fomented this trouble, hoping that the Governments of Europe would Inter fere, ana that Armenia would be entirely freed from Turkish rule.' In regard to the Turks, he says : — ' I would rather trade with a Turk or' a Jew In any part of the East 'than with a Christian. I have the highest .respect, for Ohris-tianlty, but tha Christians of the Enst aro not like us. The business men among them are to a large extent a «et of sharp...
