PORCUPINE PIE IN PROSPECTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892
PORCUPINE PIE IN PROSPECTIVE. . A friend of mino, who has a property on the Upper Yarra, asked mo during last summer to accompany him on ono of liis visits of inspection. He is tho very essonoo of a townsman, but when iho rage for acquiring land was at its hoight ho invested in tho farm, placed a man in charge, and when he wants to ' put in ' a day or two ' hies him to the country. It was on one of these trips that I found myself oinbarkod, together with my friend and his son, on a scorohing day in summor. Our conveyance was a covered waggon, absurdly over loaded, and drawn by n horse no lohgor ablo to pull a decent load, much loss tho excessive— and to a great extent use less—cargo wo had. As may bo imagined the journey was slow. Wo had to borrow horses from farmers living along the route to give us a haul up hill, and failing this help we had on occasion to fasten ropes to the van and take; a pull ourselve3. Partly in order to lighten the load, and partly to report on the probabil...
THE PARSON'S HORSE. THE PARSON'S HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892
THE PARSON'S HORSE. THE PARSON'S HORSE. This series of sketches calls for littlo descrip tion, as our artist has invoked the aid of the muse. Tho story told is that of a simple minded back blocks parson, who on boing offered a horse by a man whom ho took to be a hard up drover. closos on the bargain and becomes tho ownor of. tho animal upon handing over to the stranger a 'tennor' and sundry 'make- weights.' The call of duty, or perhaps the natural desire to try tho paces of his purchase , prompts our parson to wend his way to tho residence of a friend on adistantstationand, jogging complacently along, a wayside oamp is reached, tho ocoupants of whidli, recognising tho nag as one that had been stolen from the party, call upon tho rider to stop. Tho clergyman, having a clear connoicnoe and boing by this time almost boyond earshot, attributes their excitement and noisv demonstra tions to tho effects of a drunken spree. The sharp oraok of :a rifle and the whish of a well aimod bullet, h...
RECLAIMING THE MALLEE SCRUB RECLAIMING THE MALLEE SCRUB. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892
RECLAIMING THE MALLEE SORU.JJ RECLAIMING THE MALLBB SCRUB, No more remarkable agricultural development; has taken plaoe in the colony than the reolama tlon and subsequent cultivation of a large area, of the northern distriots which is generally known under the comprehensive name of ' The Mallee.' A few yeara ago, when moat of the land beyond the agricultural settlements was in the hands of the squatters, the possession of a. , malloe run was not considered a sound asset. Rabbits and wild dogs hold almost undisturbed, possession, and the work of dislodging them was thonglit to bo a hopeless task. When the squat tors' leasn expired, and the Mallee Act was passed by the Legislature, grave fears were entertained that no settlers oould be induced to. take up the land, and with it the responsibility .of doaling with the vermin. .As a matter of fact, the plaoing of -the allotments under a sys tem of lease for 14- yoars did hang fire, and the Lands department went to considerable trouble to...
THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892
fflMgfl There is no shirking the faot that the existing depression has told upon theatrical as well as other business. Mr. Dampier, who for the last four years conduotcd tho Aloxandra, has relinquished his lease and betaken himself ? to the provinces. He was not, however, allowed to go without a complimentary matinee, whioh was given in the Princess's Theatre on Saturday, the 25th ult., and at which all tho leading members of the profession assisted. Without making any invidious distinction, it may be said that there never has been in Mel bourne a more popular manager, and universal regret is expressed that he should bo in oluded amongst those who have hcon oompollod to yield to the oxigencios of tho times. His bonofit was a substantial one, and worthy of tho playgoing public. The Princess's Theatre has been occurred by the Italian Opera Com pany, with first class concerts intervening on alternate nights. Signor Foli and other artists have also been engaged for a sories of musical e...
THE BUNYA MOUNTAINS [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892
THE BUNYA MOUNTAINS By A. Meston. The celebrated Bunya Mountains, or the part, of tho Great Dividing Range specially known by that name, are situated about 30 milos north from the township of Dalby and 100 miles in a straight lino north- west from Brisbane. These mountains are intensely interesting in being the sole hibitat of the beautiful and valuable bunya pine, Arauoaria Bidwilli. The oxaot points at which the bunya ceases north nnd south on tho range have never been mentioned. Leiohhardt says he found it only on the heads of the Cfonda mino, Dawson and Burnott. Walter Hill is credited with reporting it existing between Townsvillo and Rookingham Bay, but this is either a mistake or requires confirmation. It was named botanioally after J. O. Bidwill, who was a Queensland down lands Commissioner in the early days, stationed for somo time at Mary borough. It was named by Hookor from speci mens sent home by Bidwill in 1842. Tho first man who really found the bunya pine and as certai...
THE MOA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892
THE MOA. By Sib James Hector. This is a subject in whioh I have always lieon deeply interested. For 30 years I have had more or lens intimate' relations with everything that has to do with tho geology of Now Zoa land. One of the most important vistas in the geology of the country is that which it presents at the time preceding the occupation of the oountry by man. It is only by the study and marking but of natural life history, and in that the history of the moa, that wo can evor arrive at tho features that Now Zealand presented when man first arrived and took part in tho. natural economy of the country as a disturbing; element. Now Zealand must at that time have presented features of extraordinary interest, and it is a common opinion that no higher animal existed when man first appeared on tho scene in New Zealand than moas — or, at any rate, birds. Whothcr the moas were the highest birds, or whether there wore other birds higher, I am not going into that; but that bird forms were ...

AMONG THE -WORKLESS^-FEEDING THE HUNGRY. At this season of the year it is the usual thing, unfortunately, to have in our * midst . a number of families who are reduced to extreme poverty, and not unfrequentiy do ? not know where to obtain a meaL The dullness of tra.de and t«e exceeding soaroity ? of work have been potent faotors 'in raining our army of unemployed, many of# whom with their train of wives and little, ones, arc undergoing bitter privationa through laok of adequate shelter and propor food. Tuo demon strations of the workless, whioh wore at first either ignored by tho autho rities or ascribed to the influence of agitators, at length, by the evident earnestness of those taking part in them, oompelled the attention of the Government. The use of the Olympia Hall, in Flinders»street, was secured, and a bureau for tho purpose' of registering and obtaining employment for the men out of work was opened last month under the direction of an officer of the Public Works.

CHILD'S DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892
CHILD'S DRESS. The model of a ohild s dross shown in illustra tion is of old gold bengaline, the handsome raised trimming being also in yellow tones. An equally pretty effect, and a far more useful and suitable frock for a ohild, would be produced by the same style carried out in cream oishmerc or orOpon with buttercup embroidery. For making the trimming use ribbon velvet or satin about 1£ inches in width; for oaoh flowor cut 5 piccoa 2£ inches in length, double each one, and gather into the shape of a petal ; sew to the material so as to form a flower. For centre, out a circular piece, gather all round the edge and fasten in the; middle of flower so as to con ceal the beginning of the petals. Tho stalks and stems should be worked in thick embroidery silk the same color as flowers. If preferred, this style of trimming might bo changed for simple embroidery of tho wheel pattern, worked with silk in the ordinary crewel stitoh.

THE NEW BISHOP OF GOULBUBN. We give in this issue a portrait of. the Rev. Canon Chalmers, incumbent of St. Andrew's Church, Brighton, who has been selected to succeed the late Bishop Thomas in the diocese of Goulburn, New South Wnlea. In making tho appointment: from the ranks of the colonial clergy, the precedent Bet in the case of Bishop Julius, of Christohurch, and Bishop Barlow, of North Queensland, has been followed, and the example is one whioh is likely to broaden into a general rule, except it may bo in the case of metropolitan sees. . The Rev. Willliam Chalmers was born of a Scotch family in London, and was educated at the London Grammar Sohool, and afterwards at the High Sohool, Dundee. Re then went to the University of St. Andrew, but left before taking his degree.

THE SCARCITY OF WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892
THE SCARCITY OF WORK. The annually reourring difficulty of providing for* the unemployed has cropped up this winter in Melbourne in an unpreoedeiitedly accentuated form, and several months earlier than usual. So much so that just prior to the Assembly ad journing for, a five weeks' recess the Premier madb a statement upon this subjeot, indicating the. line of polioy which the Government in tended to'pursue. He intimated that it was not proposed to1 start relief works as suoh, but to hnato!) the construction of '- suoh publio under takings as wero of a legitimate and reproductive nature. The success which had attended the recla mation of the Oondah and ICooweerup swamps justified , the ? Government undertaking other works of a similar character. The drainage of the Kilfeera, Borodomanin, Panyyabyr, -Gretn and Toora swamps was to bu taken in hand. It was proposed to expend £21,000 in this direction, and in addition works all over the country for skilled labor would aluo.be hastened fo...
SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1892
Bowing to the exigencies of the situation, and apprehensive that further defiance of tlio Go vernment and Parliament might lead to tho re fusal of compensation for loss of office, the Railway Commissioners, Messrs. Speight, Ford and Greene, resigned their .'positions, and in elf eat threw themselves upon tlio generosity of the people's representatives. This stop was not taken without some preliminary negotiations.' A compromise was proposed by tiie friends of Mr. Speiglit in the fitst instance, but tho amount of compensation domanded was no exorbitant that the Government' declined peremptorily to consider the offer made. It was not until the tone of the debate in the House clearly foreshadowed the ultimate decision of the Legislature, so far as the Lower House was concerned, to dispense witli the com missioners' services, that these gentlemen were brought to reason. Mr. Shiols delivered a lucid and impartial speech in the Assembly, and recapitulated the experience of previous Govern...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. . BRIDESMAIDS' DRESSES. Fbw mutters pertaining to a wedding come in for moro consideration than the bridesmaids' dresses. That tho bride herself will 'look lovely ' in hor wodding garment is gonorally a foregono conclusion, at any rate in the minda of her admiring friends and relatives. Even if her sharo of natural advantages bo so small that it fails to induce this favorable prejudice, there' is very little that can be donu for her, even by a large amount of sorious disoussion or tho most ingenious and expert of dress makers. Plain white has boon the bride's portion from time immemorial, and plain white there fore she must wear, bo she pallid as the Ico . Maiden hersolf, or boasting tho ruddy hues of tho typical milk maid. True, a small portion of color has latoly appeared in ono or two bridal gowns, when the silk forming part of the dress lids been brocaded \Vith orange blossom and folingo in their natural colors, but tho stylo has appeared in very few instance...
