THE FRENCH IN DAHOMEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892
THE FRENCH IN DAHOMEY. Colonel Dodds, the commander of the French expedition to Dahomey, whose portrait we give, has proved himself to be a soldier of atetling . merit, and his success in overcoming the bar barian forces of King Behanzin and sur mounting the still' more serious diffi oultios of the . climate and country will elevate him for the time being to the pinnacle of fame in the estimation of the French nation. He commenced his military career in the infantry of .marine and haa passed a long period of service in West Africa, having thus thoroughly familiarised himself with the condition* he' has been called upon to meet. Ho is a Senegal mulatto by birth, and this qualification has helpod in recruiting the few hundred black troops who have been the most effective troops in this kind of warfare. He was in command at Terrillon during the hostilities with Behanzin in 1890, and was therefore selected from hia . previous experience and ability to undertake this punitive expedition,...

MADAME CHRISTIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892
MADAME CHRISTIAN. The favorite contralto whose portrait we pub bliuh with this issue was born at Quebec; but though thus technically a Canadian she may practically bo regarded as an English woman, seeing that she was but 3 years old when her family moved to London. Her fine voice early attracted attention, and she. was placed under the tuition of Mr. Joseph 'Whomes, a' local teaoher, .who when himself a young man had been active in the movoment to send Sims Reeves to Italy for a course of vocal study. . Under, him Miss Christian made rapid progress,' and pressure was brought to bear upon her family to induce them to prepnro her .regularly for the m'us'cal profession. A reluctant consent having been at length wrung from the mother, Miss Christian became a .pupil of tho RoyalAcademy, where »he gained the Wtmtmore-. land Scholarship in 1866 and the Potter Scholar-, ship two years later, old Cipriani Potter himself . boingpresent, and complimentingherrno&t highly on- the. excell...
AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892
^HI^^^^W^^^^JfJCTp^^HP Although tho weather has been extremely changeable during the past mouth, espeoially as regards temperature, it was, upon tho whole, favorable as regards agriculture: tho soil was xufficiontly moist, and crops of all kinds havo grown rapidly nnd strong, and with a few exceptions, caused by violent hail storms, which injured the cereal crops, destroying some of them, tho country generally presents a highly favorable 'aspect as regards vegetation of all kinds. Grass is abundant in the pastures, and stock are in good condition. Cereal crops, with the oxoeption of some that woro seriously injured Iby hail, uro in a luxuriant condition ; hitherto there have been no complaints of rust in wheat, though as a very high temperature — nearly 90 dogreus — wan experienced during the third week of the month, it is'fonrod that, as the wheat is not nearly ripe, it may yet be attacked. Hay making, whioh was somewhat delayed by rain in tho earlier district*, is now proceeding b...
MOUNT EGERTON MINE. MOUNT EGERTON MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892
MOUNT EGEKTON MINE. MOUNT EGERTON MINE. About fchreo miles from Gonlons, and perhaps five tiincH that distance from Ballarat, lies tlio little townshij) of Egerton. It is prettily situ ated in a valley. botween mountain ranges, from tho highest and most ^important of which it takes itd name. In appoarnnce and extent it differs in no way from tho numorous centres of population that spring up in the vicinity. of mining operations. On either side of tho main street, which wns originally a surveyed road, the weatherboard houses seem . t.o struggle feebly here and there into sight, poor, strag gling and built wholly irrespective of uniformity or. regard for beauty or decoration. There is one bank, a library and a few structures de signed for official or public purposos, but not a single biiok or stone structure fs to bo seen, for tho reason, apart from tho cost of the convey ance of materials, that the risk exists of the town collapsing at any moment,, and the inhabi tants vanishing in t...

THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892
#rjggE|i Theatrical business has been unusually depressed during tlio month. The Royal was opened for a fortnight's season by Misa Maggie Moore, who was very successful in the class of entertainments in whioh she pre-eminently shines, ' namely, M'ltas, an adaptation of Bret Harte's story of that name ; Meg tho Castaway, and '49, all of a similiar charactor. Subsequently Mr. G. R. Ireland was accorded a benefit by his friends at this house, on the 26th November, when a piece entitled Clytie was pro duoed for the purpose of enabling Miss Harrie Irekr.d, the daughter of the btnificiaire, an opportunity of showing her paces. Although the drama was of small interest, yet the young lady gave marked indications of talent, and pos sibly she may yet achieve distinction in her pro fession. The most notable event of tho month was the presentation made to Mrs. Brough on the occasion of tho firm of Brough and Bnuoi cault severing their connection with the Bijou Theatre and settling in Sydney.

Tho Intercolonial Lawn1 Tennis Tournament has' taktJn plane this ' year under 'the ' m,ost unpleasant \aiinpioos,- and : th'o players lmyo been subjected to every change in the calendar, . jommonoing.witlj intense and exhausting heat on the first Saturday, and ending up with heavy rain' and high winds on the last Saturday.
