Irrigation in Egypt. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian 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.

NEWS OF THE EMPIRE Federation. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
Federation. Very slowly do we federate ! I [ere we dwell in a stormy southern sea, far away from the " Carline Wife" who dwells in the north, who sent our fathers forth in the long ago. Yet here we are, seven little peoples, each one as big as a little English town ; and we have seven different postage stamps, and seven different Custom houses, and seven different governors, and seven di lièrent kinds of laws, and we refuse to become one people unless -. One colony won't federate with another colony because well, I'm not quite sure why we are all afraid. But we are. At least our politicians aré. They insist upon us being separate little peoples, even though common sense and the Apostle Paul have declared that God " hath made of one blood all nations of men, for to dwell on all the face of the earth." Yet here we ai e, with one language, one tradition, and one God, and the politicians will insist on us being seven.
Cleveland-street Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
Cleveland street Concert. The Sydney Town Hall was crowded on Thursday night, 23rd March, at the enter- tainment given by the Cleveland-street Public School. His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor, Sir F. M. Darley, Chief Justice, was present, and was re- ceived by the Minister for Edu- cation, the Hon. J, A. Hogue. The headmaster of the school, Mr. J. Conway, directed the large choir, and the singing was not only a credit to Cleveland-street, but to New South Wales. The appearance of the little girls in the gay-coloured dresses of the nations gave rise to great enthu- siasm. There was Russia, France, Germany, America, and Great Britain, and you could tell by the applause that greeted the English speaking representatives that the audience was a very loyal one. The sword drill and the girls' physical exercise and dancing made most attractive items, and the gathering was indeed a very great and en- couraging one.
Fatal Shooting Case. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
Fatal Shooting: (ase. The following para- graph appeared in the daily paper recently DUBBO, Saturday. "There was a fatal shooting accident in a suburb called Newtown last evening. A little girl named Mary Ann Jones, a resident of Bourke, here on a visit, was playing with her cousin, George . Boon, when he brought out a double-barrelled gun, which all thought was unloaded, and snapped a cap at the child. The gun ex- ploded, wounding her in the jaw. Six- was removed to the hospital, and died from shock within three hours. At the inquesl to-day the jury found that the occurrence was purely accidental.'' No tongue can express the horror of the bereaved people in a case of this sort, and the feelings of the boy who killed the gil l can only be guessed at. Yet boys will persist in aiming " un- loaded " weapon- at t heir compan- ions. It LS a crime to aim an empty weapon at anybody, and it is only when we insist on making it a clinic that these dreadful "acci- dents " will cease.
