No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

Of the 5,000,000 inhabitants of London more than 1,000,000 have to live on less than 25s a week for each family, while more than 300,000 are in chronic poverty. Singlers, actors. and public speakers finl that since the introduction of the electric light they have less trouble with their voices, and they are les- likely to catch cold. Shakespeare used the richest vocabulary of any English writer. He employed 10,000 words. The average University man rarely has a vocabulary of more than 3000 or 4000. Naturalists assert that a healthy swal I.wu will devour 6000 flies every day.

FASHION CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

FASHION CHIAT. At last the weather has come that demands the thinnest of cotton gowns. We have hoped and waited for sum mer weather, but we really did not want .it. so -truly prostrating as that which the New Year brought to us. '98 -in the shade makes one feel rather limp-indeed, so much so that the ef fort of. arranging one's frocks seems too great. To find one spot that is cooler than another, and remain there,' is much more one's inclination. How ever, this is a chat about fashions, and not a weather article, so I must not digress further. Muslin, and white muslin in particu lar, is the fabric of the day, ,and whole squads of white figures are seen on every promenade. White drill, pique, muslins, and silk are all favoured. This almost unbearable weather.in duces most people to give up for the time their beloved white .linen collar, and replace it by something soft and more comfortable, and in this respect there is no stint of ideas. Whatever a woman chooses to adorn her throat w...

WOMAN'S WORLD. TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

WOMAN'S WORLD. . BY SYLVIA.. TO CORRESPONDENTS. Nea.-You will require eight yards of cambric for the dress, which you will find sufficient for a fairly deep hema in the skirt. If you like to wear linen collars, it is best to ..dd only a small band to the neck, putting stud holes in the centre of the back and at each side in the front. To nut a linen collar on over a blouse collar supplies too much warmth and thickness for summer wear. You can get black and white parasols in both striped and check, but neither have frills this season. "LETISURE MOMENTS." This interesting magazine is to hand for. December from Mr. P. B. Fitz gerald, and contains several short stories, social notes of Sydney,fashions, cookery, etc., and is one of the best numbers yet published. -4"---

CORRESPONDENCE. "CHRISTIANA" AND KIPLING'S JINGLE. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

CORRESPONDENCE, "CHRISTIANA" AND KIPLING'S JINGLE. (To the Editor.) Sir,-On reading the letter of your correspondent "Christiana" one feels that the real issue between Briton and Boer cannot be too frequently or too prominently kept before the public eye. The Boer seeks freedom to withhold from others freedom and the rights common to mankind. He has two leading ideas of freedom; one is, to employ the coloured labourer to do his hard work, and to thrash him (or her) when, and to what extent, he pleases; the other is, to escape taxa tion himself while taxing to the utter most the outsiders who are developing the wealth of his country, and treating them as rebels when they appeal to him for fair play. He has refused to Bri tons and to others in his land the free appeal to law and to justice, the use of their own language in pleadings, etc., the right to suitably educate their children, although he knows that in the adjoining British colonies the Boer (or Dutchman) is admitted to all th...

(To, the E'ditor.)' Sir,-I quite agree with your corre spondent "Ohristiana" as to the awful ness of war. The excellent lady, how ever, appears to think that Kipling, herself, and the rest of us can best show our pity for the lbrave men suf fering and dying in South Africa by adding to their troubles anxiety for their wives and children. I for one don't quite see the force of this logic, so I' beg to thank you for my copy of the cruel Kipling's .'bloodthirsty jingle, and to drop my shilling in your little tambourine, which I am glad' to see is filling fast.-Yours, etc., MERCY.

On reading the let ter signed "Christiana," by one who claims to be an Englishwoman, which appeared in your issue of yesterday, the exclamation that rose to my lips was, "God help the Empire if there were many mothers of Englishmen like this writer."-Yours, etc., G.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

A Curious Way Out of a Difficulty. A sergeant was charged with bigamy. He admitted the bigamy, and pleaded guilty. His regiment was under or ders for South Africa; he wished to go with his regiment, and his services were needed. Ho withdrew his. plea of guilty, the prosecution offered no evidence, the jury acquitted him. The Berlin correspondent of the "Daily Chronicle" says that at Satur day's meeting of the Anthropological Society, Dr. Simon, of Elbing, produced a caudal appendage, 21%in. long, cut from a child in Elbing eleven weeks old. Professor Virchow, who was pre sent, says it is a "splendid specimen." The tail is soft and boneless. A German physician states that the veil is responsible for red noses in women. In the course of an ejectment case in the Southwark Police Court, it was stated that there were three families living in one small room, the recog nised tenants having taken the others in as lodgers. A doctor and well-known scientist died from the plague in Lisbon. Dur...

An excited English trout angler, on seeing the excellent photographs of fish taken at the Great Lake this year, ex claimed that he would give. £100 if he could catch such a line lot of English trout. The task is by no means dilli cult if our angling friend has plenty of patience, and is not afraid to work for' them. It. is quite possible (says "Aripis") to get as good as those taken at the beginning of the, season if the angler is up to his business. During the 'holidays (states my Sca mander correspondent) angling has been going on apace at Scamander River. On December 16, Mr. C. Henry, of Deloraine, bagged eight bream and four rock cod. On the 17th, the same angler caught four brea...

NOTES BY "ROWLOCK." [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

NOTES BY "ROWVLOCK." More typical summer weather than that which prevailed on Monday, the occasion for holding the annual Mersev regattacould, hardly be conceived. From an early hour visitors from all direc tions were wending their ways to Devonport, intent on enjoying the sport and a sniff of the briny. The traffic by rail is reported to have been a record, and it seems unreasonable that the railway authorities should charge such an exorbitant figure to the competitors for carriage of boats, especially when the latter have to run the risk of having their frail crafts damaged by such articles as casks be ing placed on the same truck. In no branch of sport is there more to contend against than in rowing, and those enthusiasts who are to be found at all the principal regattas striving for honours are deserving of more en couragement than merely taking their chance of winning. Confining my remarks more to the regatta, however, the surrounding dis tricts accounted for a large number of ...

WAR ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

WAR ITEMS. Comte de Villebois Marcuil, the French strategist who is with the Boers, is the brother of a Royalist exr Deputy. Hle entered the French army in 1868, and was serving in Cochin China at the outbreak of the war of 1870, but returned in time to join the army of theeLoire. Seriously wounded at the recaliture of Blois he was pro moted to a captaincy, and eventually became colonel. He r ::igned from the French army last year. The country round Ma,feking is a most deadly region, for horse-sickness. During D)ecemb.elr and TJanuary the 'Boers, it is said, will lose SO per cent. of their horses. One wounded Boer at. the Orance River was asked what. he thought of the bayondt charge. He answered in a surprised tone, "Almighty, ,do you suppose I waited for that?" Sir Bartle Frero, speaking in 1883 of the terms of peace, said t.o General Russell-"I consider the action of the Government almost suicidal; we shall either lose our South African colonies, or have a terrible war to retain t...

Never more e?sential than now is a better undersanding between the Angle-American and Teutonic races In Europe, Germany is England's natu ral ally. It is too. soon to. stake: all upon a policy of splendid isolation. "Shetiield Telegraph." "NO REAL FRIENDSHIP."

He will relmain in this frame of mind so long as the direct advantages are apparent; there is no real friendship. -"Newcastle Daily Leader." WILL CHANGE MODERN HISTORY.

MANUAL LABOUR v. PROFESSIONAL INDOLENCE. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

MANUAL LABOUR v. PROFES SIONAL INDOLENCE. (To the Eilitor.) Sir,-There is a great tendency of late years with parents of all classes and positions to have their sons edu cated and crammed for some profes sion. The result is an over-supply of useless, discontented individuals, who cannot find honest employment for their illuminated brains. Hitherto the Government is responsible to a large extent by encouraging in a twofold manner the national abuse of education in this form;:-(1) By taxing the indus trious breadwinners tq pay for supe rior education, and (2) by depriving them of those who should. be honest labourers instead: of professional loaf ers. Needless to. say that in the towns it is with dilliculty a good labourer can be got to dig in a garden, chop wood, mow a lawn, or any other honest occu pation in connection of that sort,which if Industriously performed would soon place such individuals in a far better position than they are as unemployed professionals, hundreds of whom a...

AUSTRALASIAN NAVAL BRIGADE. THOUGH LAST, NOT LEAST. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900

AUSTRALASIAN NAVAL BRIGADE. THOUGH LAST, NOT LEAST. (To the Editor.). Sir,-We all feel naturally proud of our noble fellows who have come for ward to the first call of the bugle to fight our country's cause. At present our volunteers have been confined to the military and civilians. But where are our sailors? Our brothers in the front have evidently been taking the cake, as by reports in the papers since the war commenced they have proved to the world what the old salt is com posed of. Some would think that I am rather an old stager for this kind of fun when they hear of my past services in Africa, the Crimea, and other parts of the world. Yet the dormant spirit is aroused when such a call is made by our mother country, to which we may well apply' old Nelson's signal, "Eng land expects that every man this day will do his duty." When could we Britishers have a more noble call than on the present occasTon, to fight for right, justice, and the oppressed. I for one offer myself as I hav...
