under which people throughout the

he was approached one day on the

"How do you do. Mr. Clarke? I
saw your performance last night. I'm
on the 'Star'.”
‘Oh:” said Mr. Clarke. “And how
do you like newspaper work?”
”1 think it’s fine," replied the youth.
“I’m just starting in at it. I’m only

they’re going to give me police work.”

The single egg is placed above the

This habit has prevailed so long the

developed. The Souta African gold
fever of 1890 equaled to a consider

from the metamorphic reef, coupled
with the fact that vestiges of ancient
mining existed in the Transvaal, led to
the well-based opinion that South
