PROSPECTING IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
PROSPECTING IN TASMANIA. "''I pass on now, to 1891. In that year I determined to go to Tasmania as a prospector, and travelled all over the West Coast. I thoroughly ex plored Mount Lyell, when there were only a, few tents there; I was on Mount Reid, when Macdonald was the only prospeotor; then I examined the Cur tin and Davis-it was I who advised &nbsp; Mr. Knox to give £5000 for half the mine--the Colebrook, and later on the Pieman. It was there that I drew complete maps of the district, without instruments, and with no other means of measuring distances than my eye. When the Government survey was made afterwards the official map agreed almost entirely with my rough one. "In these trips it was nothing but solid tramping and climbing. No horse could face the country. I had a man to carry my pack, but I always insisted that I should take my full share of the labour. The rule I made was not considering myself as anything but a man. I never thought of myself as a woman at all. ...
CHAPTER XXXIII. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
CHAPTER XXXIII. There were long intervals of storm and rain after that first day of Eric son's arrival. Days when the -wind was so fierce Dolores could not stand on any elevated point of the islands. Days when the channel was turned into a raging torrent, through which the water rushed and foamed, and into which no boat might venture. Days when Ericson at Hugh Town and Dolores at Tresco were as apart as if the ocean divided them. She fretted somewhat at this cla forced separation. Her holiday way, brief and she had wanted his cr-m panionship. But that time of five years hack was not to be repeated. Such days do not come twice in a lifetime, as he had said. The last day, however, made amends for all. The sea was clear and blue, the sky without a cloud, the sunlight warm and radiant. Every cove and headland and earn stood outlined clear as a cameo against the brilliance of the sky. It wAs a joy to live and breathe such air on such a day. They met early, resolved on one of their old pi...
A COMMON-SENSE DIET. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
A COMMlON-SENSE DIET. (By a Medical Man.) You will hear sufferers exclaim, "I feel out of sorts!" "I am below par!" "I am losing weight!" Some rush to quack nostrums and become worse. Some are unwilling-or unable-to consult medical advisers, who would probably recommend things which might or might not help them. And, after all, a little common-sense must tell them that by following rational dietary rules they can maintain and restore that vigour which, by errors in diet, in conjunction with their sur roundings, they have lost. Good health-the greatest blessing mortals can enjoy, and never really valued till lost-can be preserved in the majority of mankind by attention to diet. A Food-beverage such as Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa, with its unique powers of nutriment and exceptional vitalising properties, - is a means whe?eby strength and nervous energy:is gained as a rational outcome of increased vi-; tality and the pleasing consequence of greater nourishment and sustenant force. It aids th...

FOR THE CHILDREN. t 1 a THE TROUBLES OF PIGGY. n (E.R.L.H.) s "I do hate Christmuses," sighed Piggy. "It's nothing but work and to cooking. If they only had the wood to chop theirselves 'stead of making me, they wouldn't use as much, I know. bh Well, I'm blest if I'll do any more to-day." "Sonny," called mother, "come here and get me some chips." "At it again;" mumbled the over- tc worked one. "Well, I just won't! She'll think I didn't hear." '"Piggy!" said a triumphant voice, d "if you don't I'll tell, and then you'll get something." "Oh, wheren are you, Lively?" The now frightened Piggy hurriedly looked all round the dining-room, but could g see no one. "I'm under the sofa, pig," continued b the voice. "It's lovely and cool here," and a fat, smiling face, with tangled, r lank hair hanging about it, slowly ap peared. .. "Go for me, Lively," said, her little brother. "I've been on the go ever since yesterday, getting their old sticks and chips." "Well," said Lively, wisely, "we must...
FRENCH "WEAKNESS" AND BRITISH "PERFIDY." [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
FRENCH "WEAKNESS" AND BRITISH "PERFIDY." The weakness of the pickpockets who govern us surpasses all measure. Two French officers have just been murdered by the Chinese, evidently in execution of orders received from London. What has our Government done. Nothing. A French merchant ship, the Cordoba, has received a broadside from an Eng lish man-of-war-the Magicienne-in the Indian Ocean. What has our Go vernment done to get satisfaction for this violation of the rights of nations, and this insult to the tricolour? Nothing. If Dalcasse does anything, h: will, no doubt, apologise.-"Intransi geant," Paris.

PRAISING THE ARMY. LORD WOLSELEY SAYS A GOOD WORD FOR TOMMY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
PRkAISING THE AIRMY. LORD WOLSELEY SAYS A iOOD WORD FOR TOMMY. The Commander-in-Chief, Lord, Wolselcy, was the guest at a.dinner given on November 8 by the Authors' Club, Dr. Ccnan Doyle in the chair. Lord Wolseley, in reply to the toast of his health, said he thought all people would agree that their first experiment in mobilisation had resulted satisfac torily. Much of th.c credit for the system was due to the present military secretary, Sir Coleridge Grove, and there were many others who had co operated, with whose names he would not weary them, but their efforts had led to the immediate success of the scheme when tried. He thought he could claim for himself and those who had worked with him that they had laboured under extreme difficulties, and their chief opposition had come from people in his own profession. But the tree they had planted had taken root, and there had graddtallygrownupabody of young officers who had carried their ideas through. Even old military men agreed with...

NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
NOTES ON THE CABLES. (By "Rhodesian.") The fighting at Sunnyside and the oocupation of Douglas, besides being an eye-opener as to the fighting qualities of the Queenslanders-not to speak of their camaraderie in assisting to carry loyalist children away when Colonel Pilcher withdrew from the latter place -has had the effect of checking Cronje's plans. He has advanced his right carefully round Methuen's left by crossing the Riet River and proceed ing south, occupying Douglas in pass ing, and forming a laager at Sunny side. This place is only a few miles west of the railway line, opposite Bel mont, Cronje's object being to com pletely surround Lord Methuen, and, more important still, cut the latter general's communications with De Aar. This little game has been put a stop to, for not only was the fighting decisive at Sunnyside, but the Boers were pushed back even from, Douglas, which is a good deal to the north and west of the former place, and on the Riet River: while a detachment of ...
