SCIENCE. The Flaming Sun. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899
SCIENCE. -? The Flaming Sun. By "GOSSIP." T N our last issue we were talking about our earth and the sun, and it will surprise you to find out how few people know anything about either. You would think that everybody would be interested in the world they live in ; but they are not. They are so very busy trying to live, and their range of vision is so small, that they rarely have time to see beyond a very narrow area. A great pro fessor once said to his class : " Gentlemen, the sun is one million three hundred thousand times larger than this earth." That made no great impression on the students. We never can tell what a million means, because it is such a vast number. Suppose I write this : If the volume of the earth is one, then the volume of the sun is 1,305,000. You wouldn't understand that. No body would. This professor was a wise man. He said : "I have counted some grains of corn (maize), and made a calculation, and I will show you what I mean." He rang a bell, and a porter brou...

A GREAT SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899
A (xEEAT SOLDIER. ANY people think that a poor boy has no chance to rise in England like he has in Australia, but that is not true. One of the soldiers who was honorably mentioned during the recent strug gles in the Soudan, was Brigadier General Hector Archibald Mac donald. He commanded one of the advance brigades during the war with the Dervishes. He was born in Rosshire, Scotland, in 1853. In his early days he was a stable boy. At the age of 17 he was appren ticed to a draper in a tartan house in Inverness. At the age of 19 he enlisted into the Gordon Highlan ders. For repeated acts of bravery in the Afghan war of 1879 he re ceived an officer's command, and by his heroic conduct he has become one of Britain's great leaders on the battle-field.

Bubbles His Book. A STORY FOR CHILDREN, By R. F. IRVINE. Illustrated by D. H. SOUTER. ç^C 77ZÍ> Story that Daddy told the night the Flying Squirrel first appeared in the old Gum Tree. T ONG ago there lived a little girl, whose name was Lulu. She had blue eyes and curly brown hair, which her friend, the Wind, loved to blow about her bright little face. Lulu was very happy, for had she not all that heart could desire ? Her home was a dear little home, with lots of green lawn, and flowers, and trees, under which she used to play on sunny days. You could never count »'ill the toys and playthings that Lulu had. But there was one thing she loved above all the rest. It was not a doll, or a set of teacups either. It was a Long, White Clay Pipe, which her mother had given her to make bubbles with. She loved making bubbles out of the soapy water which she kept in an old Broken Teacup. And the Wind, as he came singing through the trees, used to catch up the bubbles, and pun them over the fe...

During the year ended Septem ber 1st, one passenger was killed for every 2,250,000 carried on the rail roads of the United States. As long as our civilisation is essentially one of property, of fences, of exclusiveness, it will be mocked by delusions. Our riches will leave us sick ; there will be bitterness in our laughter: and our wine will burn our mouth. Only that good profits, which we can taste w ith all doors open, and w hich serves all men. lim cr son.

THE SIRDAR AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899
THE SIRDAR AT THE UNITER SÏTY OF CAMBRIDGE. Here is an account of the recent visit of Sirdar Kitchener to the University of Cambridge (England). It is an extract from a private letter written thence by a young man who was a few years ago a N.S.W. public school pupil, hut who now holds an important position in St. John's College, Cambridge : ?" At the present moment this ancient University town is in a state of indes cribable uproar and lawlessness, and, as I write here in what is usually the calm retreat of the ' Union,' the deafening babel of voices outside in the streets wafts up snatches of ' Soldiers of the Queen ' or ' A Little British Army goes a long way." This state of things began this morning, and has increased in intensity all day, until now the police are powerless, and the undergraduates are in possession of the whole town, which they are illuminating with fire works. The meaning of it all is that the Sirdar came up here to get an honorary degree to-day, and the young m...

Irrigation in Egypt. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899
Irrigation in Egypt. The Duke and Duch ess of Connaught are in Egypt just now. The Duke is the Queen's son, and was born in the year 1850. His wife, the Duchess, is a daughter of the late Prince Frederick Charles of Prussia. The Duke has just laid the founda tion stone of one of the greatest dams in the world. It is that at Assouan, on the Nile. By it the river will be raised along a distance of 140 miles, and a vast area of barren country will become as fertile as a garden. Egypt is like our own Riverina : it can grow almost anything - with water. There are scarcely more than 13,000 square miles of fertile land in Egypt, but in our Riverina there are more than 30,000 square miles. When some great Duke comes and lays the foun dation of a dam in the Murrum bidgee River, Australia will have made a fresh start in her national career.
