CHAPTER XI. PERILOUS FRIENDS, Eric went entirely under—down un til his feet grazed the stony bot tom and' he could hold his breath no longer.

He felt half-strangled, but he was in full' possession of his, senses;'. : He had "let go his riflfi,1 and as • he drifted ... along :he struck ■ out hard with both anus. By the dim light of the coming dawn he saw on his deft the precipitous and scrubby bank, a dozen feet high, from wlrich ho had: fallen ; its base-was no more than a yard, or two from him. ! To-the right,. across the' compara tively narrow channel of the river, lay, a level and wooded country, with misty hill's in the background.

CHAPTER X. VOICES IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 9 April 1914
CHAPTER X. VOICES IN THE BUSH.,, That Eric had not already lost his life was due to the incessant jump-J ing about of his horse, and also to the fact that the police and Mata bele, being partly under the in- | fluence of some strong drinlc, could not shoot or throw straight. Now, seeing that the young Englishman \vus left in their power, they made ; a more determined effort to kill him. , Some slipped along tjie road to cut off his retreat in the direc tion taken by Phil and the scout, and the rest closed in with-hideous clamour. - ! "Tchaia Amakiwa ! Tchaia Ama kiwa 1" they yelled, , as they 'struck and aimed at horse and rider, A bullet grazed Erie's shoulder,'1 and several assegais barely missed ; him. But he had not ontiroly... abandoned hopo, and with one hand ho reversed his rifle and knocked down a Main bole who was about to spear him at close quarters. With the other he tugged ' hard at the bridle, trying to turn his steed round towards the Buluwayo road. At the same time ho...

The following testimony is from :i well known Tentcrlield resident—and the saddle and it's owner may he seen at any time. The tribute is a re markable one, and a record of stabi lity. " 1 bought this saddle from A. , J. Smith of TenterfieldOver twenty six years ago, and it. is as" sound to-day —(with the exception of the counter ling), as when I got it. It has been in use the whole of the time, and I lent it once to a horse breaker who had it for five years, and horses, have got away from me and been out all night, so you see it has had rough usage.' I must get it counterlined, and then I reckon it is good for another ten years. The tree and leather parts are good, and if I did it up, no one wduld think it was in use live years."—advt.

What Becomes of Old Clothes? [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914
What Becomes of Old Clothes ? Black cloth clothes purchaned by second-hand dealers, provided they are too far gone to be "revived," are sent to France, Russia, and Po land to be made into caps, which the working people of these coun tries wear. The cast-o/T red coats of the British, soldiers almost, all go to Holland, for in that damp country the people liavo a notion' that red cloth keeps off rheumatism; therefore, all careful Dutchmen oi the labouring classes wear red cloth waistcoats next their skin. These are made by cutting off the |'sleeves of the British soldiers' red coats and altering the shape a little. The showy uniforms of the Guards and the full-dress liveries of the Lord"" Mayor's footmen and the Royal servants coino into the hands of the old-clothes dealers, and go chiefly to the south coast of Africa, where they are sold to the native chiefs. " .Travellers are sometimes amused at being received in full state by 'a - swarthy chief on his throni dressed -out in, footma...
Chinese Servants in Japan. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914
Chinese Servants in Japan. Chinese servants generally nro re garded in J apau as much more re liable than J apanese, and most ell! cient servants are the Chinese nurse women. It is the custom in Japau to place the very young children in charge of Chinese nurses, and, when they are older, to employ Ja panese women. The reason given is, because the Chinese women ore so faithful in the care of babies. A Chinese nurse will hang her head with shame if the baby cries. She thinks it is all her fault. She hovers over her charge with anxious care, and makes a great fuss if it appears that any-* one is going to behave imprudently with the child, such us tossing the little ones in the air,- when : "You will kill them in their insides," she will prote#h The Chinese nurse expects to take ontire charge of d child, preparing everything it cuts, - and washing its clothes.

M W ^ E w W ¥©imir (C&iMe smd ^lieepo SOME POINTS WORTH NOTING:— The World makes way for the man who knows, and knows that he knows. For over a Century BADGERYS have been in the Stock Trade of New South Wales. BADGERY BROTHERS have, in the personnel of their Firm, the strongest combination of any Agents' in Sydney. They know what the Stock Owner wants, and they personally see to his wants. They understand him. Although only a young Firm, they have progressed with the times. , . Their Accommodation for Feeding and Watering Stock at Flemington is the best and most up-to-date. Two of the Principals live close to the Saleyards. so that they are on the spot to see to the treatment of Stock in their paddocks. There are four BABGERYS, Auctioneers, so that all consignments receive personal attention. By results we obtain business, and, therefore, owners receive our utmost efforts. There is no argument against BADGERY BROTHERS: . they give good, honest service, and do not fear compar...

Mother's Gratitude to Zam-Buk for Child's Cure. "When two years ago my son Frank had an outbreak of disease on his head," says Mr. M. Hayes, of o Clancy Street, .Boulder, W.A., " the disease spread over his head in the form of large mattery sores, then de veloped into thick crusts, which emitted a very unpleasant smell. His head was a solici unsightly mass of. disease, and his condition grew worse and worse, and finally became very serious. " Knowing what a splendid thing Zam-Buk was for. sores and injuries, we decided to try this halm and Zain Buk Soap. His head was bathed with hot water and Zam-Buk Soap, and then regularly and carefully dressed with Zam-Buk Balm. After a few days the. discharge was ended, and all crust came away, leaving the skin beneath nice and clean. As we persisted dressing his head with Zam Buk, the sores and tender places healed up, and new hair grew in place of that destroyed- by the disease. Frank was rescued from a terrible disease by Zam-Buk, and he has ...
