VICTORIAN POULTRY AND DOG SOCIETY'S SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 September 1892

VICTORIAN POULTRY AND DOG - ? SOCIETY'S SHOW. - The sixteenth nnnual show of the Victorian Poultry and Dog Socioty, the largest of its kind held in the southern hemisphere, was opened on the 10th Aug., at the Exhibition Building. The numerous attendnnce of the public showed the marked interest taken. Thoro was no formal opening, visitors simply being allowed to outer as soon as the judging of the poultry was complete d The display of poultry was one which has seldom, if ever, been excelled at any of tho society's shows, and a. look over the exhibits proved un mistakably that, groat progress has been made by breeders and fanciers. In the majority of classes the competition was keen, and poor exhibits were. quite the exception. A visitor entering the division' set apart for dogs would for the moment find it difficult to realise the truth of the poet's assertion, that ' 'TU swoet to hear the watoh dog's honest bark,' the noise bsing deafening and varied in key, from the deep bay of the...

ABORIGINAL MYTHOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 September 1892

ABORIGINAL MYTHOLOGY. Bv A. C. Gregory. In our eagerness to discover the features of new tracts of country which do not alter their charaoter for ages, we have to some ex tent neglected to study the characteristics of the inhabitants, their traditions and customs, before intercourse with civilised races has operated to modify the ideas of tho aboriginal Australian. I would, therefore, impress on those who have had opportunities for intercourse with the unsophirtticated tribes, that it is im portant that some record may bo made of their social and moral condition before they cease to exist, oxcopt as a menial race, subordinated to the European who has annexed their territory. I have f recently heard it stated that the Aus tralian is of such a low typo of the human family that thoy are scarcely in advance of in telligent animals ; that their manners and cus toms might besummed up in tho form adopted by a naval officer who had been instructed to observe the manners and oustoms of the i...

VILLAGE SETTLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

VILLAGE SETTLEMENTS. The policy of village settlements on the Now Zealand method, whioh is nlso in the piocHB:! of tentative experiment in Victoria, does not find favor in the eyes of the New South Wales Land Minister. - This is not beoause of any doubt con cerning the desirability of the object sought to be attained, but for the reason that the condi tions are different. With the enormous extent of territory in New South Wales available for occupation there is no necessity to call upon the State to assume the .responsibility for resump tion, save under very exceptional circumstances. Mr. Copeland, - who professes to have given con siderable attention to the subject, is convinced that the present law will give every facility for settling people on the land oil small areas in the vicinity of inland towns on much better terms - than those in force in New Zealand. With this purpose iii view, he is elaborating a scheme for reducing the area of commons to more moderate limits, aud render...

OUR NATIONAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

?OUR NATIONAL ASSOCIATION. , ?: 'A national gallery' of' painting and ebulpture' , 'is always a popular place with the people. ' It has an air of quiet'restfulness which is wonder fully soothing,' coming as it does in sharp con trast to the 'roar and bustle of the busy streets outside.

' All shades of socloty are represented; from' the needy, seedy unemployed to the well fed, prosperous gentleman ; and it is botk interesting and amusing to watoh how the different pioturoa : appeal to different individuals. To a .certain few, probably, the. gallery will ever remain a blank. They gaze at the pictures in a vacant way, without desire to know the meaning, or taste to admire the beauty of them ; but to the ' majority it is far otherwise.

A BRAVE DEED. The. .bravery of the young miner, William Rogers, who recently saved his comrade from almost oortain death, at the risk of his own life, in the Virginia Company's mine, at Eagle hawk, has boon brought under the notioe of the Minister of Mines by Mr. William Griinger, the mining inspector for the Beudigo district.

ART NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

AKT NOTES. The pioture by E. Borough Johnson, -now, at'.' the National Gallery, and bought by/Mr. Her komer for the trustees for £250, can; hardly be ' reckoned among his happiest purchases. 'The-' subject is a Salvation Army refuge, the foremost figures those of an old man, thrown forward on his knees and hands, whom one supposes to be '.wrestling with the Lord,' while an army officer bends by his b'kIp, and a girl with the pure oalm face one so often remarks under tho dis figuring army bonnet, with raised head and clasped hands, prays for his salvation. It is a very possible aoone and well oompoied, but there is a want of spontaneity about it that makes one question whether the artUt was really strongly impressed by his subjeot, or whether he merely otiose it because he thought it would make a good pioture. The exeoution is certainly not what one would expeot from the pupil of an artist of Mr. Herkomer'B reputa tion. There are several inexplicable errors in the drawing and proport...
