KANGAROO GROUND SPORTS, The Kangaroo Gruun'd annual r;prte meeting took place last Friday in air E. Hobson's paddock, and passed off very sntisfactorily, the weather being heautifully fine, the attendance of the general public fairly large, and the majority of tho'events well and kseenly contested.

The conmittee's laudable desire to run the events to time was not carried out, conequently-the programme being a lengthy one-the last evrnl, the cigar race, had to be run in soeti-darkness. However, a good day's spurts was provided, and the comilistee and officials, especially the joinit ho,,. secretaries (Messrs William Nicholas and F. Ramanyer)*deserve all praise for the mannetr in..which they carried out the day's progrumme. In the evening a hall was held at the local hall, which, as usual, was well attended, and a thoroughly enjoyable time was spent.

"Ahl '-with i nigh of relief-" that's what I wanted to know. You see, I've been thinking it over; and, seeming to me, I'd rather have her sister." " You can please yourself," replied the vicar. " But of course fresh banns must be published." " Al I" A pause. " Mr. 5--, 1 paid 'en half a crown for putting up those banns. Shall I have to pay another half-crown Y" "Naturally.

KRUGER ON THE BRITISH SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 13 March 1903
KRUCER OH THE BRITISH SOLDIER. President I'aul Kruger does not deny that the PEnglish soldier is brave. A writer asked hhimthe question pointblank., and in " Ains. ice's lagazine " thus reports Ooon Paul's reply: " ' Yes, but tihe is only an animal. He does not know what he is lighting for. It is a .shame to send these poor fellows out to be killed, and I pity them. They do what their officers tell them, and that is why they get killed., " 'Very few oa them can shoot straight. They' usually aim over our heads. -The Eogliah soldier does not know how to take care of his horse, either, and withoutt a horse in this country the soldier is nothing." " If Kruger insists on any one thing in this chimpalgn it Is the careful handling of horses," continues the writer. It is certainly an un usual thing to hear the President of the State exhorting lis troops about sech emall details " 'W\Ytch the burghler,' ie said, i how they hobble their ponies, and then do like wise.

A DAUGHTER OF THE VELDT. THE EXPERIENCE OF A DELUDED BRITON. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 13 March 1903
A DAUGHTER OF THE VELDT. THE ":XPERIENCE OF A DFLUDED BIBION. It is a bad-thing to travel in a country during war time oven when you are familiar with its language, but it is far worse when you only know enough of the native tongue to make yourself misunderstood. I have managed to get myself into some gorgeously picturesque situations on this account, andi more thlan once have vowed to master the Boer dialector wreck lly talking uppaortus in tihe attempt. It Is not an coasy language to learn. It is very like their kipjus-ateep. rough, rocky, and disjointed; and, like thu kopjes, you cn't takeho it by storm, but must climb steadily and with patience, and mnakl sure of one step before you venture on the next. It Is a superb language to use when one Is driving bullocks or blacks; tile lrst sentence seems to roll off tile lips like a malediction, and tile second chops off short like the bark of a toy terrier. I should ask for no finer form of speech on earth if I wanted to curse mine en...

He was exceedingly green, but he was simplytoobey instruc tions, and accordingly he came every morning to receive orders whait to do for the day. His first order was to spread a heap of manure.

About noon his employer went out to. see how he got along, and found him swearing furiously and pauting for breatih.

CIDER MAKING. Mr Owen Gray, of " Cleir Hills," Back Oreek, near Queeastown, is eideavouring to establish a' new indus. try in the district in the shape of cider making.
