THE PALLID TIGER. . Having originally Imlonged-toacirous, the two principal tigers at tho Zoological Gardens in Adelaide, which were born on board a steamer in colonial water's, and as mere kittens were the delight of Adelaideans who patronised Ghiarini's CircuB and Mbnagerie when they were here, pre sented the council of the Zoo with a 'white tiger.' A white tiger is a great rarity, nnd as far as wo. know there is no suoh example in cap tivity in' the world, consequently ' Chiarini's tigers-' have produced a good dividend. The ' pallid tiger ' in question was born with his sister in-the Zoological Gardens in March last, , consequently he is now 'over six months old. Tho ground color of his body is of pure white, ? the usual stripes are a' dark slato color, - and his eyes are grey or light bluo. Ho is a grand look ing cub, nearly twico the size of his sinter.

I came too late to see the 60 dark skinned ohildren in their sohooL The entire township, indeed,]had be takon itself elsewhere. It was strange to see every house closed, and left without guardians of any kind. Out of a population numbering in ?11 about 110, thsre was not a single living person left on . Barren Island, except tho sohool master and his family and the , Bishop. But it was not difficult to find the objeots of my search. They were congregated on little islets a few miles off preparing for their annual harvest, not of corn, but of mutton birds. And what are mutton birds? The name ij a grievous misnomer.- ?

WRECK OF THE DRUMBLAIR ON THE GIPPSLAND COAST. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1892

'WRECK OF THE DRUMBLAIR ON THE GIPPSLAND COAST. [By Oun Special .RnponTEn.] The four-masted barque Drumblair, whioh went! ashore at Waratah Bay on the 16th Sopt., is now almost high and dry on the beach, with, her bow embedded about 8 feet in the sand. The crew who left the ship on taking to shore .returned to duty on the following day, and under the direetion of tho officers commenced sending down the topmasts'. ? The ship is perfeotly up right and uninjured, and the muster, Captain Golding is sanguine that sho will -bo got off. Ofcherswho know the looalifcy and tho trenoherous nature of the sands are,, however, of a difforent opinion. Tho heavy surf which breaks for about half a mile to seaward makes the uhip inao ooBsible to ordinary boats, and it is feared that before the necessary salvage vessel can be got to the scene, the vessel will be broadside on to tho beach and completely sanded up.

One morning, when the sun had just risen fiery with midsummer heat, we set forth from Sale on our expedition to that part of the Aus tralian Alps ? immediately surrounding Mount Wellington. . .

WOOL TRANSPORT IN NEW ZEALAND. The. northern portion of the middle island of Now Zealand is not woll served in the matter of railway communication, and consequently the tract of country lying between the Waikari Gorge and Blenheim is ohiefly devoted to sheep raising, although muoh of the land is of good quality.
