Miscellaneous article on the same page:


We have received and reproduce a portrait of the late Mrs. A. de Sales Turland, of Johannesburg, whose death we have heard of with regret.
The deceased lady was one of the earliest pioneers of Johannesburg, entering camp and starting business in 1886, and by her tact and business ability she steadily compassed a comfortable competence. Mrs. Turland is credited also with being the cause of women being allowed to peg off gold claims in the Transvaal, the law there reserving that privilege to males before Mrs. Turland took up the fight on behalf of her sex, and convinced President Kruger of her rights. Mrs. Turland was to the fore in many ways in the early days of Witwatersrand—1886 to 1892; but recently had retired from active business, and was preparing for a lengthened trip to the Old Country, when, seized by a sudden illness, she passed away. Her portrait will be of interest to the many Johannesburgers of the later eighties, and by all of whom she was well and appreciatingly known.

The Town Council of Cape Town has been advertising for tenders for building the City Hall. The design selected is that of Messrs. Reid and Green, of 4, Good Hope Chambers, Cape Town, and Johannesburg. The hall will have a main frontage of 250 ft., and is of proportionate size throughout. The question of site has not yet been finally decided, opinion being divided between the Parade and Caledon Square; while an increasing number of Councillors and citizens are reported to be coming round to the conviction that the historic site in Greenmarket Square is the true home of the Town Council.


The Echo columns generally convey good advice to correspondents, but an exception occurred on Monday, when someone signing himself (or herself?) “H. Walsham” offered “the advice of one who has travelled from Cape Town as far as Pretoria,” which was, “keep out of Africa altogether if delicate. Why, the dust storms alone are enough to kill, although they are only periodical. Then you have to get to the Cape, which necessitates crossing the Equator. I have seen,” continues this “adviser,” “the poor consumptives gasping for breath, some in a terrible condition owing to the fierce tropical heat. I interrogated one of the stewards of the Dunottar Castle, and his answer was “Oh, they often go to Davy Jones,’ meaning they die. I fail to see the beauty of South Africa as a health resort. Fever lurks all over it, and of sanitation there is none away from Cape Town itself. Dysentery, too, is rampant, and the soil, being a mixture of sand, &c., the slightest puff of wind sets it in motion for one to breathe. A passing vehicle does the same. The strong find it hard to bear, so what of the weak and ailing?” Then comes an astounding fact. “I have met people there going home to England in search of health. No, certainly not South Africa for an invalid. Madeira charming. Lovely climate, with balmy sunshine, and no dust storms. I have not room, or I would describe these, but in brief they are awful. The average cost of living about £2 to £3 weekly, i.e. for artists and middle-class folk. There is plenty of tinned food used.” It is a curious commentary on the above, that in the arrangement of our contemporary’s columns, it should have been placed immediately above some other “advice” from a patent medicine advertisement, not to be nervous or low spirited!

A white boy named Montgomery, a fitter, employed at the Geldenhuis Deep, was caught in a strap and whirled round. He received fearful injuries and died soon afterwards.
