DICE IN ALL AGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 2 April 1914

DICE IN ALL AGES. The simple little squares which we shako up in' a box awl throw in games of chance are so old that their origin is lost in the mists of antiquity. Certainly dice in var ious forms have been used in re ligious ceremonies since the dawn of history. The majority of dice have been made in ■ tjje. form of cubes. ' In practically every variety also, the numbering lias been the same. That is to say, the six and one, five and two, three and four, have b6en opposite one another, thus forming the magic total seven in each instance. A. curious form of dico had six sides, and was made to spin at a twirl of the thumb and second finger, and specimens of dice have now been discovered tn Babylon, 140*

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. UNFIT FOR MILITARY SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 2 April 1914

PEK PICTURES OF THE PAST. UNFIT FOR MILITARY SERVICE "We are coming, Father Abraham —three hundred thousand more," rings the chorus of a stirring song popular in the United States, and dating from the great Civil War. But, as a matter of fact, President Abraham Lincoln's decree for the levying of 1100,000 new conscripts to join the Northern ranks and crush the slave States by the sim ple force of "bigger i battalions" was anything but popular at the time. It was voted on November 30, 19G2 ; but its application was post poned till several months later, when this interminable war seemed as far from its end as ever. The great object of every peace aide citizen being to escape army service, the "exceptions" were care fully considered by the .lodge Ad vocate, and it was decided to admit as claims of freedom from military , service : (1) Age under 18 or over I 45 : (2) physical incapacity ; (3) co lour (no negroes or mulattos) ; (4) alien nationality ; (5) clerical and scholastic professi...

CHAPTER IX. A BAD SCRAPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 2 April 1914

CHAPTER IX. A BAD SCRAPE. The night had now sottled down to a state o£ unbroken quiet, uiul not a glimmer remained of the fires that had a short time before been' blazing luridly on the horizon. But the scout and his companions were not deceived as to the real nature of the storm that had burst over Matabeleland. The horror of what they had seen and passed through ( was still upon them, and as they rode 011 through the bush their minds pictured the bloody deeds that were likely taking place in re mote parts of the country, the scat- ' tercd bands of savages pouring from their kraals, the surprised set tlers fighting for their lives or flee ing to the nearest towns, stores, and forts.
