SCIENCE. Somebody's Blunder. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
SCIENCE. -? Somebody's Blunder. By "GOSSIP." LITTLE BOY, eight years of age, said to his father the other day : " Father, didn't you tell me that the sun was red hot ? '' " I did, my boy ! " " And nothing could live there ; neither birds, nor plants, nor flowers ? " " That was what I said, my boy !" " Well, father, here's ' Gossip ' saying that there is coal in the sun, and that is a vegetable." Then that little boy's father rang me up on the telephone, and asked what I thought about it? I thought that the boy was very clever, and that I was wrong. Mind you, I said that all those things were in the sun ; but, if you will read the article again, you will see that I said " they are flaming-they are molten." I might also have said that in the sun there are things like snow and rain and rosebushes ; but "they are flaming - they are molten." You will find gases in the sun like oxygen and hydrogen, and if you combine these two gases you will form water. But there is no water in the sun, b...
AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION. The Training Ship "Sobraon." II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION. The Training Ship " Sobraon." ll. T*[There is a story told, in the Ancient Boök, that when God had placed Adam and^JEve in the Garden of Eden, the command was given : " Of every tree in the garden thou mayest freely eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it ; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." Most of us have read the rest of that story, and how disastrously it ended, and it looks as if forbidding people to do things w as the surest way to get them to do it. The West Indian mules/won't go up hills till a little nigger grabs their tails to keep them back, then they plunge ahead for spite. At least, that is the story, and it has a lot to recommend it. These small boys on the Sobraon are only on the ship for eighteen months (as a rule), and then they are apprenticed out till they are eighteen y ars of age, and, in that brief time, they h ive to be trained to do that which is right and eschew that ...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
I am very pleased that so many young people have tried to answer my ques- tions in this column. I hope all will try to induce others to enter this competition. We want five times as .many sets of answers next month. When you write to me tell me what you think of my column, and give me any suggestions you have for improving it. Perhaps some of you would like to suggest questions, eh ? I want to find out what kind of questions you like best. You will notice that I have called my column the " Question Column." It is not a puzzle column, because, though I have some puzzles. I have also some ques- tions intended to encourage those who work hard at school. Some of my young friends, it appears, live out in the bush, far away from any school. I am glad to find that so man}r bush children take an interest in ray column. Children who do not attend a public school should compete in Class 2 if under nine years old ; in Class 3 if nine, ten, or eleven years ; in Class 4 if twelve or thirteen, an...
Bubbles His Book. A STORY FOR CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
Bubbles His Book. A STORY FOR CHILDREN, By R. F. IRVINE. Illustrated by D. H. SOUTER. The Story that Daddy told the night the Flying Squirrel first appeared in the old Gum Tree. A S Lulu went in, Fairy Maids, on either side, bowed low, as though a great Queen were entering. Another door opened, and Lulu stood in a large room-the Room of the Twenty Shining Windows. Hither came other ¿O' 0o; Fairy Maidens to robe the Queen. One brought a pair of slippers, with buckles of silver and gold. She kneeled, and placed the slippers on Lulu's feet, and Lulu, looking down, sa w that they were set with gems, that glis- tened like beads of dew on sunny mornings. Another brought a golden bowl, filled with pure water, with which she washed Lulu's hands and face ; another a golden comb and brush, with which she dressed Lulu's brown hair. Others took off her home clothes, and clad her in robes of Fairy Land. When they had made an end of dressing her, they put a sceptre in her hand, and a crown of gol...

A SCHOOL OF SEVEN. BY LOUISE MACK. _ "In this room ?" asked Miss Emily. ?. Yrs. MLss Emily." " Well get it. dear." It had come now. May had got up. and w ent across the room. Everybody watched as though thc destiny of the world hung on her movements. She stooped on her hands and knees, and disappeared underneath the loni;- cloth of the little table. Next moment she came out again, and in her hand was a crisp, black rag, dry now, and quite stiff w ith the ink in it. "It's spoilt," she said, and laid it on the tahle. There w as a horrified silence. .? M av !" said Miss Maithers. May I " said Miss Emily. May herself said nothing. Miss Emil}- had left the door open, and she could see her hat hanging out there in the hall. She nave a wild little gasp, and rushed suddenly out of the room. She had grasped her hat in a moment, and was tearing down the garden before they realised that she had gone. " You may put your books away," said Miss Maithers. "Miss Emily and I are too upset to teach y...
Volcanic Eruptions. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
Volcanic Eruptions. We had news last month that Hunter Island, one of the Fiji gi ( »up, was in eruption. The volcano, which was half-way up the side of a mountain, was throw- ing out huge volumes of lava, which covered the island for some con- siderable distance, and swept down in great masses into the sea. The island was uninhabited. Lava is the name given to melted stony matter thrown out from the mouth of a volcano. It soon cools, leaving a rough, unequal surface, though underneath it remains liquid for a considerable time. Lava has some- times been thrown out in such quan- tities as to overwhelm towns and villages.
The Khalifa. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
The Khalifa. Tho Khalifa is not in a very good posi- tion, from what 250 deserters say, but you can never trust the Arabs. Not long ago we were told that the Khalifa had ried from Omdurman, a defeated and desperate man. Now he returns to the neighbourhood with a large following. They may, indeed, be starving, bul our troops need tobe very careful. The fashion of British soldiers is to despise ;ln enemy and suffer for it.
FOREIGN NEWS Terrible Fire in New York. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
Terrible Fire in New York. St Patrick's Day was celebrated in Sydney by processions and a large programme of sports carried out on thc Agri- cultural Society's Ground, where some of our foremost public men met and made happy speeches over luncheon. In New York it will be remembered for a terrible fire, in which many lives were lost, and many people seriously injured. As the hotel w as packed at every window by spectators of the procession, a panic was caused, and many, finding the stairs blocked by flames, jumped from windows and parapets.
Submarine Torpedo Boats. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
Submarine Torpedo Boats. The French Minister of Marine, M. Lock roy, has brought for- ward a scheme of new naval construction, which includes submarine torpedo boats such as the " Gustave Zede." During recent experiments, when the ironclad " Magenta '' was tor- pedoed by the " Gustave Zede," M. Lockroy was on board the former vessel, and tells how the eyes of all on board were fixed on the sea. Officers and men stood watching the crests of the waves for the first sign of the submarine boat which was quietly proceeding underneath the water to its mark. The excitement of thc crew was at fever heat. Sud- denly the cupola of the " Gustave Zede appeared 100 yards away, still abreast of the i> Magenta," which had been steaming on. Immediately orders were issued, and the guns brough! to bear upon her. lint the Submarine boal was no longer there. She had instantly sunk, and so avoided the lire. In a minute's time, though the engineers had been ordered to put on steam, and the " Magenta "...
