ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900
ODDS AND ENDS. At Elandsla.agte (writes the London "Daily Telegraph" correspondent) the Devons had, gained the crest on its steeipest side, and the Goredons, with Mancheeters and Light Horse, were sweeping over its nearest ridge, when, to our astonishment, we heard the "Cease fire" and "Retire" sounded by buglers. It was difficult to account for them, but not so now, when- we know that the Boers had learned our bugle calls. In obedience to that sound the Go.rdons were beginning to fall back, when their boy bugler, saying, "Retire be d--!" rushed forward and blew a hasty charge, whereupon ranks closed up, and the victory of Elands laagte was won. Sir Redvers Buller has complimented the volunteer cycle despatch riders in Natal, whose smartness, he says,greatly facilitates the organisation of the cam paign. In Paris recently the police pulled down a number of placards posted up by students, inscribed with these words:-"Down with the English! Lon don is at the mercy of 20,000 resolute m...
THE CAUSES OF THE WAR. LETTER FROM THE REV. DR. STEWART, LOVEDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900
THE CAUSES OF THE WAR. LETTER FROM THE REV. DR. STEWART, LOVEDALE. In a letter to "The Mission World" on the causes of the Transvaal war, Dr. Stewart, of Lovedale, the Modera tor of the Free: Church of Scotland, writes:-"The present is only an acute stage of a long existing condition, as everyone who is acquainted with the history of the past relations between Boer and Briton very well knows. I use the words Boer and Briton, and not Dutch and English--for I will never utter a word .or write a line on this subject without acknowledging the fact that' thelre are loyal, sensible, and brave Dutchmen in South Africa who clearly understand the great questions that lie at the bottom of this struggle. But these are greatly in the minority. The oldest and deepest root of this wide divergence of feeling may be found in the question of slavery - which denies to the black man the right of a human being. The great northern movement or trek followed immediately on the emancipation , of the slaves...

Schultze, of Peel-street,Wind sor, has received a communication from Colonel Ricards, commanding the Grenadier Guards, confirming the death of her son, Henr'y Emil Schaltze, from wounds received at the battle of Bel mont on November 23.

65 William-street, Launceston, Tasmania, February 4,-1898.' DR. J. C. AYER AND CO., Lowell, Mass., U.S.A. Gentlemen, I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla occasion ally for the past two years. I find it aids digestion, tones up and invigorates the system, and creates a regular and natural action of the liver when it is sluggish and inactive. I am pleased to recommend it, as I have always obtained relief when I have used it. I have tried various other medicines, but none did me so much good as Ayer's Sarsaparilla. JOHN H. DOYLE. In future racurning enve'opes are not to be allowed to pass through the post in France. The reason given" by the postal authorities is that black-edged envelopes are easily tampered with.

A HOT FIRE. THE ENEMY CHARGED. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900
A HOT FIRE. THE ENEMY CHARGED. The Boesas, however, contrived to keep up a hot fire with two Maxims and a couple of Vicker's quick-lirers. The firo at times was very heavy, and once under coy:er the enemy made a stand. The Teath Hussars and Horse Artil lery got round and threatened the Boer right flank, while the infantry poured in a disastrous firie, which was rapidl, demoralising the enemy. At nine o'clock the order to charge was given, and the Boer forces throw up the sponge and hastily withdrew in the direction of Colesberg, leaving the British victorious.

MOUNITED INFANTRY. THOBART, Saturday. Lieutenant George Steward, who has been appointed enrolling ollicer of the mounted infantry corps which it is pro posed to establish, is losing no time in pushing on with the enrolment so far as it applies to the southern portion of the island.

NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900
NOTES ON THiSE CABLES. (By Rhodesian.) Giving little Mafeking the pride of place, we learn now that the armoured n train attack reported as having taken place on the 24th did not take place until the 26th. It would appear that the Boers have a strong cordon drawn round the north of Mafeking, and this will probably account for all or some of the enemy who have been with- n drawn, as ,we were informed, from Gaberones, and, in fact, from all the nbrthern parts. Perhaps this may also partly account for Colonel Plumer's inability to reach Mafeking. But this is merely conjecture, as we have had no intelligence to that effect; but neither have we received any explana tion. of his retreat to Macloutsie and Tuli. Again the Boers have shown their wonderful facility for acquiring infor mation with regard to the British movements, and their quickness in making a counter move. We learn that they doubled their forces in the night at the fort on the railway line, s and when the Mafeking men made a...

INLAND WIRES. DEATH OF A CLERGYMAN. REV. JOHN WILKES SIMMONS. HOBART, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 8 January 1900
INLAND WIRES. ]D D.1R OWN REPORTERBS.) DEATH OF A CLERGYMAN. REV. JOHN WILKES SIMMONS. HOBART, Saturday. That respected and veteran cleric, the Rev. John Wilkes Simmons, died to day. One who had the good fortune to enjoy a close intimacy with John Wilkes Simmons for a decade or two writes to the "Tasmanian News": One cannot call him a public man as public men are known in these days of high pressure. Still, he identified himself with many public schemes which carried, perhaps, more beneficial and enduring effects than many works which have been sounded by the trump of history. His philanthropy was as judicious as it was inexhaustible. Ever ready and willing to lend a powerful hand to move the wagon, he had the faculty of setting others to work, and inspiring them with part of that ac tivity which advanced years and fail ing health lately cut down to a mini mum. Retiring and diffident, quiet. and un assuming, manly as a man, and virtu ous as a minister of the Gospel, estim able alike...
