DISASTROUS CONFLAGRATION. ON SCOTTSDALE TOWNSHIP. SCOTTSDALE, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
DISASTROUS CONFaLAGGRA TION. ON SCOTTSDALE TOWNSHIP. S'SCOTTSDALE, Friday. A disastrous fire took place this morning, Messrs. Hunter's butcher's shop and dwelling and Dinha.n's chemhist's sholp and dwelling both being burnt to the ground. The fire originated apparently in Mr. Hunter's kitchen, which he found all ablaze when he was awakened by dense smoke suffocating him about 1.2.45 a.m. Mr. Hunter loses everything, but Mr. Dinham saved a few things. Messrs. J. A. Gregory, next door, and E. T. Gregory and W. R. Huttley,opposite, were only saved by the exe?tions of willing helpers with plenty of water and wet blankets. The large window in Mr. E. T. Gregory's shop suffered, all the glass breaking with the heat. The buildings destroyed are both insured, but the contents, I believe, are not. Mr. Dinham is very unfortunate, in this matter, having just purchased the whole ef Dr. Ick's stock of drugs, etc.. and had them removed only on Tuesday and Wednesday. Mr. Hunter cannot account for t...
"THE JINGLE." [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
"THE JINGLE." "Bill Atkins" (Deloraine) writes: "Re 'Christia.na's' letter which appeared in your issue of Thursday, I shall sum her up simply by saying 'she don't know where she are,' and it would only be a waste of time to enter into an argument with such a person. It is a thousand pities she was not in that truck that carried so many helpless women and children from the Trans vaal, ,and who received so many in sults at the hands of the Boers. She might have had a different tale to tell now. Enclosed is is for the 'jingle' cold-hearted 'Christiana' returned, also 2s Gd for one copy, which please send on to 'Bill Atkins.' " Mr. Joseph ArchlEr, Panshanger, writes:-"I have the pleasure to en close a cheque for £5 5s to patriotic fund for war in South Africa, and wish it was m.re. Do not think much of Kipling's poem, but it seems to have had the desired effect. Your sheet is splendidly got .up."

RUSSIAN POLICY. ASSURANCE BY THE EMPEROR. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
RUSSIAN POLICY. ASSURANCE BY THE EMPEROR. It appears that Czar Nicholas of Rus sia has made a statement in reference to the proposed movanent of the troops to the Afghan frontier, which it was deemed to be contemplated with the view of interfering with Great Britain while the present crisis lasts in South Africa. All the newspapers comment on the Emperor's declaration that there is no intention. on the part of his country to raise difficulties with Great Britain or other Powers.

CAPTURED BY BOERS. NEAR STORMBERG. THE ENEMY'S GUNS. COMMAND STOiRMBERG JUNC TION. Thef"Cape Times" correspondent re ported under date Molteno, December 8:-Yesterday afternoon a party con sisting of Stationmaster Yates and two gangers and. a civilian named Hiscock left Molteno to examine the damage done to the line by the Boers between here and Stormberg. The trolley stopped at the top of the Nek, about fpur miles from the junc-. tion, and the gangers went forward to examine the culverts, Messrs. Yates and Hiscock remaining in charge of the trolley, Nothing more was seen. of the gangers, who were lost sight of near a sluit. The party awaited their return four hours, and then brought the trol ley back. While waiting they had a capital op portunity of examining the enemy's preparation. for defence. On. the Nek near the junction three guns were mounted, commanding the line and the surrounding country. Ranges for rifle lire were marked with beacons up to 2000 yards. At Onverwacht a part...
COLENSO RAILWAY BRIDGE DESTROYED. THE ROAD BRIDGE MINED. FRERE CAMP, Dec. 6. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
COLENSO RAILWAY BRIDGE DESTROYED. THE ROAD BRiDGE MINED. (From our Exchanges.) FRERE CAMP, Dec. G. One of our scouts, who was captured by the Boers at Colenso, after working a few clays managed to escape, and has returned here. He. reports that the railway bridge has been destroyed. The road bridge is still intact, being used by the enemy, but can be wrecked immediately when required. The native was taken' before General Jou bert and questioned as to our move ments, but says he pleaded ignorance. Two privates sentenced to six months' for drunkenness at Estcourt pleaded to have their imprisonment re mitted till after the war, as th?ey were anxious to indulge in the fighting. The request was granted, and they returned to their regiment. A similar entliusi astic desire for action prevails among all the men. Bosman and Marais, under the cover of a white flag, advanced to a body. of our scouts. I have been informed that they merely desired information about two missing Dutchmen. A Kaffir...
BOER PILLAGING. A SHOCKING OUTRAGE. DRINKING WATER POISONED. MARITZBURG, Dec. 6. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
BOER. PILLAGING. A SHOCKING 'OUTRAGE. DRINKING WATER POISONED. MARITZBURG, Dec. 6. The Estcourt correspondent of the "Times of Natal," describing the wan ton damage done to a farm named The Plains, at Highlands, says that the kraals yielded most striking proof of wanton mischief. A case of Cooper's sheep-dip had been found in an ad joining store, and there is clear evi dence that it had been used with the foulest intentions. All around the kraal were lumps of flesh remaining-, from sheep and cattle which the Boers bad killed. The farmer's dogs, on re turning with their master, ate some of the flesh, and immediately showed signs of poisoning. Two valuable ones were only saved by at once administering emetics. Two cows were driven into the kraal, and drank of the contents of a large dish standing there. During the afternoon both the animals died. It was then seen that a quantity of dip had been mixed with water in the dish. Three hundred sheep, most of them in primo condition, were ta...

WAIL LTERMS. LIFE AT LADYSMITH. A FURIOUS BOMBARDMENT. BUT NO LIVES LOST. FRERE CAMP, Dec. 7. A despatch dated Ladysmith, Novem ber 30, reports that there was a furious bombardment from the new gun, but. little damage was done, and no lives lost. "Long Tom" has not fired for a week, and is believed to have been finally put out of action. Very heavy liring was again heard this morning at Ladysmith. It ceased about eight o'clock, all being quiet since. MARITZBURG, Dec. 7. A private letter, received by Kaffir runner from Ladysmith, states that the residents are having a good time, con sidering their position. They have plenty to eat, and time on their hands, .which they employ in cricket, tennis, football, and other sports. The only. thing that worries then is the anxiety of their wives and families. Except shelling, which does very litle harm, there has been no fighting lately. Early in the morning the outposts on each side usually exchanged shots, but prac tically without damage. A f...

One of the newer features of Ameri can public libraries is the children's department. The first public library to set apart a room exclusively for children was that at Brooklyn, near Boston. This new development in library work was begun in 1890, and since then children's rooms have been established in about 25 public libraries, All the newer public libraries have these rooms for children. Only a short time' ago there was not so much as one tall chimney in the whole of the Mikado's Empire, nor did the nation possess either railways or steamers. To-day there are cotton mills with almost a million spindles and an army of skilled operators 25,000 strong. As for the national revenue. that has doubled in 20 years, whilst the wealth of'the people has trebled since the old exclusiveness was broken down, -Elliot Griffls. The Queen has never• travelled abroad except in France, Holland, Germany, and Italy, though she rules over an EDmpire that has possessions in all parts of the world.
ONLY ONE FLAG IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
ONLY ONEi FLAG IN SO'UT-I AFRICA. It is worse than idle to talk of mag nanimity; we simply cannot afford the luxury. The Afrikandcr States will be treated with justice; there need be no fear on that point. But justice itself justice to South Africa aqd the Empire -requires that their independence shall cease. There can henceforth he but one flag in South Africa, and that the sign of British dominion. This inevit able rearrangement will not be altered, but it may be made more dificult by such utterances as those of Lord Ripon and Mr. Bryce.--"The Globe."
A CLEAN SWEEP WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
A CLEAN SWEEP WANTED. The colonists are making tremendous sacrifices for the sake of the Empire, and in, both Cape Colony and Natal they. are behaving nobly. 3blut they would be terribly disappointed, and, in fact, their loyalty would be destroyed, if at the close of the war a clean sweep was not made of the two trumpery re publics that have caused all the trouble. -"Nottingham Daily Guardian."
