OUR NEW ZEALAND LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

OUR NEW ZEALAND LETTER. Tho Registrar-General of New Zealand has published the vital statistics of that colony for 1890, a little late in the day, but they nro in teresting nevertheless. The birth rate fell . off during tho year, the number of births registered being 18,278, or 179 less than in the previous year. This return, in proportion to the popula tion, is said to bo the lowest on record. The colony has had its period of depression, and it is well known that such periods aot in restraint of marriage, and consequently diminish the birth rate. It is possible to account in this way for the fact that there has been an actual deorease in the birtli rato from 1881 to 1890. In 1881, the number of births was 37.95 per 1000, whereas in 1890 it shrank to 29.44. How great the shrinkage was will be recognised when we say that tho actual number of births in 1890 was less than in 1881, notwithstanding the increase in tho population. In 1881, 18,372 births were registered and only 18,278 in ...

CATTLE BRANDING ON A QUEENSLAND OUT-STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

CATTLE BRANDING ON A QUEENSLAND OUT-STATION. This scene will be tolerably familiar to thoao of our readers who have visited a station or farm where the brooding and rearing of cattle is extensively carried on. Tho methods adopted for branding the young stock aro protty inuoli the samo all over tho colonies, but this notice ablo fact is apparent, viz., that whereas in Victoria and the other southern colonies the stockmen aro almost invariably whites, in Queensland and the Northern Territory it is quito tho revorso, nonrly all the station hands being aboriginals, with just a sprinkling of whites as overseers and in other positions of importance. Upon reference to our illustration it will be seen that tho young bullook, or ' Micky ' as it is designated in tho vernacular of tho station, is making things lively for the operating party. On being securod in the branding pen tho animal is lassooed over the horns and by tho legs and thrown, when the mark of the station is burned into the hid...

MOUNT BALLOON, MILFORD SOUND DISTRICT. The excursions to the west coast sounds of New Zealand, which have been very popular since their inceptionin 1877, have been the moans of familiarising tho wonderful scenery of the dis trict to considerable numbers of sightseers, many of whom, tired of tho conventional show places of tho old world, have declared themselves amply repaid for their long journey by boing privileged to gaze on tho profusion of Nature's wonders, difforing so widely from anything to bo seen in other parts of the world. Tho steamers visit all the sounds, commencing with tho most southerly and finishing with Milford, the most northerly. In Preservation Inlet, Dusky Sound, and Doubtful Inlet the scenery is impressive enough — in fact could hardly, ono would think, be surpassed — yet when Milford Sound is reached, tho hoholder is astonished, for thero are to bo found the characteristic features of all the other places previously called at.

NAVAL AND MILITARY TOURNAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

NAVAL AND MILITARY TOURNAMENT. A Beriea of naval and military sports on the lines of those which lately took place at the Royal Tournament in London, and which ex tended over a period of three days, commenced on Thursday, 11th Feb., in the quadrangle of the Exhibition. Only a week or two previous similar pastimes were held in Now South Wales, at which Victoria was well represented, nnd at the Melbourne competitions New Sou Mi Wales had several representatives. AltliLiigli the progress of the events dis played some of the weaknesses incidental to the conduct of an unusually largo undertaking, the tournament was generally a Hiiccess, and tho defects noticeable were such as experience will exclude from futuro arrange ments. Particularly necessary will be tho wooding out of the competitors on tho private grounds of the corps, for the monotonous dead work of cutting out ought not to be done in public, where only the best men should be allowed to appear. It would also bo desirable to avoi...

A BICYCLE TOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

A BICYCLE TOUR. Within the memory of the present genera tion tho bicycle has grown from the chrysalis of the bone shaker to tho butterfly of the racing track now so familiar to all of us. During the last 10 years it has been steadily advancing in public favor as a means of locomotion for plea sure, and for profit, as well as taking its place in tho fore front of contests wherever athletic sports aro held. Ono of the most pleasant uses than can be made of the bicycle is to tour on it through the country districts. Some riders' even go further afield, as in the case of the pair of Australian cyclists who not long ago made a trip round the world on their ' wiroy ' steeds. As a sequel to that achievement many aspiring wheelmen, endowed with less stamina or reso lution, or perhaps of both, than was possessed by the riders referred to, have essayed the rural tour. Some have made very pleasant trips, thus acquiring an extensive knowledge of dis tricts of which they would otherwise have bee...
