THE QUEEN'S PRIZE. Mr. Fargher, the winner of the Queen's Prize at the recent Victorian Rifle Association matches, liau been noted as a coming shot for some years past. ; He is a native of the Isle of Man, about 30 years of age, and arrived here about nine years ago.

A POPULAR ACTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892

A POPULAR ACTRESS. Mrs. Robert Brough has achieved a distinct pre-eminence and popularity on the colonial stage by her own strongly marked individuality and histrionic powers, assisted to some extent by tho excellent company organised in connection with the Bijou Theatre. Her acting has been especially appreciated by the 'more intelligent and educated playgoers, but, like a true artiste, bIio Mas always played as if oblivious of sur roundings. The orchestra seemed, as Wagner dcclnred it should be, an impassable gulf between her and her audience, the illusion being only dissolved when, as a matter of professional courtesy, she acknowledged the hearty plaudits with which her efforts were frequently greeted. She is never effusive. Gush seems foreign- to her nature. She receives mechanically and without seeking that applause which is so dearly prized by ordinary members of the stage craft. In. private circles sho has been held in high estimation for her many 'amiable qualities, but her ...

AN EXPENSIVE NORTHERN QUEEN LAND RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892

AN EXPENSIVE NORTHERN - QUEEN - LAND RAILWAY. A tiip to Northern Queensland has become one of the favorite means of. spending. three or four weeks' holiday during tho winter months, enabling tho tourist from Tasmania or South Australia to visit Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and a large number of the chief coastal towns of Queensland, as Rookhampton, Maryborough, Townsville, Cairns and Cooktown. Such another delightful coastal trip scarcely exists clsewhero in Australia, for at the northern end of the route tropical scenery oan be enjoyed in all its most profuno luxuriance. If one wants a pleasurable trip inland, as a change from tho usual monotony of steamboat life, that from Cairns up tho mountain range towards Herberton is easily undertaken. In thia issue. we give a series of illustrations along the railway between Red Lynoli and Myola, con structed by Mr. John Robb, the well known Victorian railway oontrnotor. In more than one respeot this section of . 15i miles oboupies a unique p...

HOW TO SAVE THE DROWNING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892

HOW TO SAVE THE DROWNING. By Captain Pathick Gkacb. First of all, you must bo perfectly cool and self possessed. In iaot, that is the principal socret of being a good swimmer; you must have plenty of confidence in yourself. If you are (toing to save a drowning 'person, do not for an instant loso your presence of mind. Have a oloar idea of how you are going to act' under the conditions as they prosent themselves. to you and then act-. . Of course, you must bo a good swimmer, or you cannot hope to render aid in time of danger. Never go in front of tho victim, always approach him from behind. If you go in front, of him the chances aro that he will try to grab hold of you. The old .saying that a drowning man will catch at a straw is literally true. Moreover, a drowning man will not only catch at anything, but ho will keep hold with a death like grasp, whioh too often means tho loss of both the rescurer and the victim. If he raises hm hands to catch hold of you and there is no other way ...

THE STRANDED SHIP DRUMBLAIR. Tho four-mastod ship Drumblair, which went ashore at Waratah Bay, near Wilson's Promon tory, on 16th Soptomber, was floated off late on tho 6th Nov., and readied the Bay the follow ing bvening in tow of tho Albatross. The Drumblair was on. a voyage from Port Pirie, South Australia, to Sydney, when she got ashore, and although she ran on to a sandy beach many nautical peoplo thought she would rotnain there owing to tho heavy surf whioh broke on tho beaoh. Tho master of tho ship, Captain GoldiiiR, and tho crow remained by her and wero sanguine of getting hor off tho boaoh, and their opinion was shared by Captain Wymark, of the Underwriters' Association. Tho ship ran high on to tho beach at high wntor, and in order to approaoh her from saawards powerful steamers drawing very little water wero required. The selection of suitable boats was not a difficult nmctor, as tho two paddlo tugs of Messrs. J. PateiHon and Co. had long ago proved their value in similar ...

THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892

THE BROKEN HILL STRIKE. The great strike is over. The gloom which has hung over the Barrier for the past 18 weeks is dispelled, and men all have a load of care removed from their minds. The majority of the miners who have for some time since been desirous of returning to work but have held baok through loyalty to their unions can now do so without any stigma being attached to them. Though many defoctions have taken place from their ranks, inscores of instances mem bers of the unions have held by the majority in opposition to their own bettor judgment. The strike loaders did not care to take aotion until they felt the changed feelings of the men mado it secure to do so. It' is certain that hundreds will bo unable to obtain employment on the mines for weeks or even mouths to come, and .continued help will be needed from the unionists in all parts of the colonies to keep the wolf of starvation from the doors of the unemployed of the Barrier.

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

VILLAGE SETTLEMENTS. Now that we are about to. attempt the experi ment of village settlement; an an extended scale, the experience of .similar efforts in other couutrios may serve as a useful guide. Tho con ditions of agricultural life in England differ in important respects from those wliioh pertain here, but there are points' of resemblance suf ficiently near. to indicate difficulties with wliioh we may be called upon' to deal. To this extent the success attending the Bahemo of small hold ing in Great Britain,' conceived with the idea of affording to' the laboring population an oppor tunity of attaching themselves to the soil, will help to throw light on the question. During the' past 'few yearn since tho passing of the ' Allotments Act of . 1887, there haa been ? a wonderful acceleration iii the rate of increase of this kind of settlement, and though the compulsory principle has not been largely utilised, voluntary action has been greatly stimulated.

THE SILVER COINAGE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1892

THE SILVER COINAGE QUESTION. The silver coinage question has evoked a mass of official correspondence out of all pro portion to the importance ' of the principle in volved: Tho trouble has arisen through the opposition of 'New South 'Wales, which lias in tervened for the purpose of preventing Victoria from obtaining a privilege she does not want herself. This dog in tho manger policy is entirely characteristic ' When the claim to coin silver for colonial requirements was revived by Victoria our Government courteousjy and quito disinterestedly acquainted Now South Wales with the fact that the application had been made and the grounds upon which it was based. The opportunity was then afforded to join in the demand for this concession if thero was any desire to do bo, At that time, however, the feeling was quite the other way. The Sydney Mint bffioials reported in an adverse strain, and this view was endorsed by the Premier. Not until' there was seen to be a likelihood of Vic toria rec...

A BLIND MARSUPIAL. The animal kingdom in Australia is a study of perennial interest. Tho fish aro wonderful enough, especially thoso which seem ablo tolivd without water. As for Tho strange bright liirrts on their starry wings, ? their number is inexhaustible. The parrakeets alone in tho Melbourne market on a fine Satur * day are worth going all the way to see. So are the birds in the Zoological Gardens at Adelaide, where spuc'iet- never likely to be brought to this country will bo found. An excellent and extensive collection of skins is in. tho museum. Here, ton, the antonished traveller sees the Ornitliorhynchus, with its pouch and an egg in the pouch. In the museum or in the gardens the visitor could spend many days, comparing one by one all the extraordinary forms of pouched animals with the similar examples of his native land. There is no pouched cow, but it cannot, geblogioally speaking, be long since a graminivorous marsupial of about the same size ranged the bush. They call ...

The exhi bition has boon organised on a somewhat dif feront plan to that of 1891, the new direotor of the National Gallery, Sir.

The exhibition of pictures has been entirely suppressed, and. tho nuinbor of studies, somo of which are very advanced, is muoh smaller than last year. The absence of any nrintod cata logue and the illegible manner in whicli some of the names are signed makes it difficult to identify all tho works, nnd it is hardly possible after one visit to givo a fair estimate of their merits. The charcoal studies comprise- draw ings from the antique and from life, and studies of hands. The standard of ...
