THE GLORY OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
The crown and glory of manhood is strength-power. All human conquests have been won by it, individual and collective. The earliest sign of decay in man is not usually pain, but weak ness of some kind-of mind or body, or both. This may be the inevitable sequence of advanced years, or it may, as we all know, show itself at any period of life. But it always means that the sources of strength are fail ing, as the lessening of the water in a river means a drying up of the springs and streams which feed it. I said "sources" of strength, using the plural word. I shouldd have sa'd "source" of strength, for in human be ings there is but one. What is it? Perhaps the experience of Mr. David Jones will help us to an answer. "In the summer of 1881," he says, "I began to feel ill and out of sorts. I was weak and tired, and quite worn out with little exertion. I had a poor appetite, and after eating had pain and weight at the chest. My secretions were scanty and thick. My back felt stiffand gave m...

" GADA? EN 1PUI~ ? ??IF.IER. A testimonial received from a grateful patient who cannot recommend "GADARENA" too highly. To the Proprietors of "GADARENA," Gunn-street, Invereskc. Dear Sirs,-Having suffered the greatest agony during the last three years from Liver Complaint and Indigestion, which my doctors pronounced chronic, I have tried all known remedies without relief; in fact, for the last twelve months I have not been able to take sumfficient nourishment and could not partake of meat of any description without prostrating myself completely, and had go so low that my family and friends despaired of my life. As a last resort my husband was advised to induce me to try "GADARENA," and, after taking the first bottle I felt a great improvemcnt, whilst after the third bottle I could take meat without any ill effects. I continued to take your wonderful Temedy, and have gained a stone and a*,half in weight. I feel convinced that had it not been for "GADARENA" I should have been in my gr...

FRENCH ANGLOPHOBIA. A FRENCHMAN'S PROTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 6 January 1900
FRENCHI ANGLOPHOIIA. A FRENCBlMAN'S PROTEST. Writing to an English paper,a French resident in England of 30 years' stand-. ing concludes his denunciation of the Anglophobia of the Parisian press as follows: "As a Frenchman I desire to protest warmly and. emphatically against the attitude of the French press-and =un fortunately by many of my country men as well--press and, public being al most equally ignorant on foreign poli tics and affairs, as they rarely travel, read no journals, and. speak no language .but their own, ,and believe the world to be bounded by the Boulevard Mont martre and the Madeleine. That they cannot or will not fairly judge the Transvaal questions I understand. But that they should so far forget French traditions, French courtesy, gallantry, and decency as to grossly insult a friendly nation, and a gentle lady whose only thoughts are kind and generous ones, whose only acts are simple and pitiful and gracious ones to all mankind-that 'there should be found in my...

RESULT' OF 'I'IIE KAISEIl'S YISIT. IMPORTANT .SPEECH BY MR. CHAMBERLAIN. ANGLO-SAXON AND TEUTONIC. TRIPLI ALLIANCE,, AN UNDERSTANDING WITH GER MANY. Important declarations were made on November 31. by Mr. Chamberlain at a Liberal-Unionist luncheon in Leicester upon the subject of our future rela tions with other Powers, and particu larly with Germany. The significance of the Colonial Secretary's speech can not be missed, following so closely up on the visit of the Kaiser to the Queen and the interview which took place at Windsor between his Imperial Majesty ands Mr. Chamberlain. The right hon. gentleman, says the "Daily Mail," spoke of "a triple alli ance between the Teutonic races and the two branches of the Anglo-Saxon race" as a combination which "would, he believed, be a potent factor in the future of the world." Mr. Chamberlain introduced the sub ject by references to the United States. He remembered that on his lirst visit to America there was felt a general doubt as to the in...

Chudleigh races and Chudleigh Caves will be the attraction in the north! for Wednesday. Mr. W. J. Southerwood's latest pur chase, Titanumn, by Metal, was favour ably commented on by judges at Long ford on Monday. He is certainly a nice stamp of horse. Rennie received some nasty wounds on the left leg at Longford on Mon day while making an effort in the Flying Stakes to get Rapid to the front. The mare was sent against the rails, and the rider suffered. If the weather is warm, caterers at our various race meets should take care to secure a supply of ice. The un quendhed thirsts ,at Longford on Mon 'day were appalling. The committees of race clubs, gener ally speaking, should supervise the ca tering themselves, and see that their patrons are made comfortable. In some instances I have known of the food has been fair but the attendanc...

AFTER MANY DAYS. (By J. Donohue.) "You'll tell me next that I have been talking for fun-for my own amuse ment." "No, Frank," she replied, "I believe you. Yes, my boy, I believe you." "Believe what, you little puss?" "Believe that - that" - and she blushed slightly-"you love me." "Of course I do. But, Mary, come now, do you really care for me?" "Me!" she repeated. That was all she said, but the lan guage of love told the rest, for he con tinued "And now, my girl, since you love me, what is it that troubles you? Do, you thing I will forget you? In the long years, Mary, that may elapse till I work myself into a position to win you and keep you in comfort, you shall be the only- " "Stop!" she interrupted. "How can you answer for the years, Frank? Neither you nor I. Think, my boy, you may change, although I don't think I ever shall. You are young, younger than me. If the time comes, then, and you are still the-" "The same," he broke in eagerly. "I will always be the same--the self-same t...
