Origin of the Terms "Whig" and "Tery.'' [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 24 March 1899

Origin ot the T«-rm» » Whig' nnd 'T»»y.*' The following account of the origin of these two terms, so common iu English politics, is taken from an old scrftp-Sook. From what source the 'scrap' has been culled is not stated therein. Tlie mime. ' Whig' is said to be derived from the Oltie ' Hirham.' a sort of Iarire saddle. with bags attached to It, in use among the freebooters of the borders of Scot land ; hence those robbers were kuowu by the name of ' whiggain-more' or ' big saddle thieves.' ; and -niicn Hie Civil Wnr broke out the Highlanders and Irish, who supported the King, called themselves 'n taobh rlgh'~that is, 'the Jflng'n part}1,' and gave the name of , ' wbiggnworc thieves' to tlielr oppu nentn.

A Brave Woman Sentry. Who says that women can't be soldiers? We may, it seems, make doctors, or lawyers, or football- players of them ; they may be our mothers, sisters (our own or other persons'), couslus, or aunts; they may even be domestic servants, or rule an empire upon which the sun never sets; but soldiers— Never ! Wise acres who talk thus should read again :uid itgain the stories ot the women, s heroic deeds that brighten the dismal pages of the Indian mutiny. At Cawn pore. for instance, women stood side by side with the men against the common enemy, women tended the wounded and the dying at tbe peril of their own lives, and fed the fighters when it was no joke to fetch water from a shot peppered well. Who kept guard over the Sepoy prisoners '! Why a soldier's wife. ?Sword in hand, she stood unflinchingly over the prisoners while tfie siege went mi, aud though they greatly outnum bered her. they held her high spirit iu such awe that, it was only when the hi'illiaut defence M...
