BOOKS WORTH READING. OR TALKED ABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 21 December 1901

BOOKS WORTH READING. OR TALKED ABOUT. The "Bulletin" Story Book, a collection of   stories and literary sketches for the "Bulletin," comes out opportunely. At this particular sea- on matter of the character presented in this ad- mirably arranged work is all the more welcome. It would, however, be joyously received at any time. The compilation has been undertaken and carried through with the central idea of pro- viding the most exciting and most interesting Australian stories and sketches, and that ideal has been achieved in a meritorious degree. Whilst in a specially interesting "introductory," Mr. A. G. Stephens points out that "in this book it has not been attempted to choose examples of work characteristically Australian," nevertheless the whole flavor is Australian, and decidedly en- tertaining at that. It would be impossible to pick out the best the "Bulletin" has offered for 20 years, without including sketches which make the blood tingle and scenes that only Aust...

A Daring Brigand. CAPTURED AT LAST. PEOPLE STARVED TO TRICK HIM. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 21 December 1901

A Daring Brigand. CAPTURED AT LAST. PEOPLE STARVED TO TRICK HIM. In Calabria—the land of the vendetta and the   bandit—the hero of the day is Guiseppe Muso-   lino, the famous brigand, whose career was   ended the other day in the Marches near Ur-   bino. Musolino bids fair to become a sort of   national Calabrian hero, for he embodies in a   remarkable degree those qualities of revenge and   romantic vagrancy which in Southern Italy are   most honored. All the maidens of Calabria are   now singing his praises; he has his troubadours   in every village, and even a sympathetic bio-   grapher has been found for him in the person   of Signor Nocera Abenavoli, who is hard at   work on a volume in which the famous bandit   is to be immortalised.   Musolino was no vulgar footpad. He was a &amp...

HUMOR OF CHILDREN. A FEW GOOD STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

: HUMOR OF CHILDREN. ) ______ A FEW GOOD STORIES. ) Dr. Macnamara, M.P., gave a lecture on "Chil ) dren's Witticisms" recently at St. Luke's Instt ) tute, Peckham (Eng.). In roughly analysing his / subject, Dr. Macnamara pointed out that prac c tically all children's witticisms are unconscious. ( Some had arisen from a misconception of first ( impressions; others from taking literally what \ was intended metaphorically. The queistion, ) "What is Parliament?" obtained the answer, "A ) place where they go up to London to talk about s Birmingham." ( "Who was the first, man?" an American boy ( was asked. On replying "Washington" he was ^ reminded of Adam. "Yes," he said, "if you count : foreigners." r "What is a heretic?" was another question. ) "One who vroi-M never believe what he was told, ) but only after hearing it and seeing it with his own eyes." A vacuum, said another child, is nothing shut up in a box. Questions in history drew forth the following information:—The fire of Londo...

NOTABLE PLACES. THE OLDEST GOVERNMENT HOUSE IN AUSTRALIA. A WINDSOR LAND MARK. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

NOTABLE PLACES. THE OLDEST GOVERNMENT HOUSE IN AUSTRALIA.     A WINDSOR LAND MARK. There may, of course, be a quibble as to     whether this historic building is really the   oldest Govern- ment House in Australia. That at least one other was so occupied before it in Sydney is beyond doubt; but the Windsor residence is one of two—the     other is at Par- ramatta—which   stand in all the glory of the ori- ginal design. "Old Govern- ment House," Windsor, as it is called, is one of the most memo- rable and most revered land- marks of the Hawkesbury   district. It stands on an eminence in George Street,   and rearing its quaint architec- tural contour above the sur- rounding build- ings, it com-   mands one of the loveliest of views. It is, in fact, one of the lions of a locality which boasts many features of more than passing interest. Inasmuch ...

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL WHERE WIIL IT BE? [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL. WHERE WIIL IT BE? Whilst Mr. Barton and Mr. See are complaining about each other's indifference regarding the Federal capital site, members of the Federal Parliament, who will ultimately have to decide, are quietly but surely making up their minds. "It will be Lake George," said a prominent labor member to the writer the other day. "Why Lake George?" he was asked. "Because it would be only three or four hours' run from Sydney with a properly accelerated train service, and that is a strong argument in its favor with a majority of members." "But what support do you expect?" "Well," he retorted, "I think we are pretty cer- tain of the Queenslanders, several of the Vic- torians, practically the whole of New South Wales members, except Mr. Tom Brown, who wants Orange, and Mr. Chapman who wants Eden- Bombala; whilst the South Australians, Tasma- nians, and West Australians also view the place with favor. "I think we should have Sir William Lyne with us, too, although ...

THE GROWTH OF CRIME. CRIMINAL CRICKETERS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

THE GROWTH OF CRIME. CRIMINAL CRICKETERS. Recent statistics show a gratifying decrease in crime in this State, but a new offence has been discovered by an enthusiastic police officer, which threatens to bring half the juvenile population within the category of criminals. The other day at the Central Court, Sydney, two youths were charged with "playing at a game, to wit, 'cricket,' in Kent-street, a public street, to the danger of passengers therein." "Playing cricket?"' said the magistrate inquiringly. "It's a game with a hard ball, your Worship," the sergeant ex- plained. "Hard ball! No, sir, we was playing with a soft ball," said the prisoners, but the Bench decided to convict, and they were each fined 10s, with the alternative of Christmas Day and Boxing Day in gaol.

GREAT MEN'S VIEWS OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

GREAT MEN'S VIEWS OF WOMEN. Remember, woman is most perfect when most womanly.—Gladstone.   He that would have fine guests let him have a fine wife.—Ben Jonson. Disguise our bondage as we will, 'tis woman, woman, rules us still.—Moore. Kindness in women, not their beauteous looks, shall win my love.—Shakespeare. Oil and water—woman and a secret—are hostile properties.—Bulwer Lytton. The most beautiful object in the world, it will be allowed, is a beautiful woman.—Macaulay. If the heart of a man is depressed with cares, the mist is dispelled when a woman appears.— Gray. Lovely woman, that caused our cares, can every care beguile.—Beresford. He is a fool who thinks by force or skill, to turn the current of a woman's will.—Samuel Tuke. Raptured man quits each dozing sage, O woman, for thy lovelier page.—Moore. Earth has nothing more tender than a pious woman's heart. —Luther.

LOSS OF THE LOCH VENNACHER. HEROISM AND HUMOR. THE CAPTAIN AND HIS PARROT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

LOSS OF THE LOCH VENNACHER.   HEROISM AND HUMOR. THE CAPTAIN AND HIS PARROT. News was received by cable in Australia of   the loss of the well-known trading ship the Loch   Vennacher whilst lying at anchor in the Thames.   She was struck by the Steamer Cato, of Hull,   and soon went down.   Captain Bennett, who is well known in Aus-   tralia, thus describes the whole affair to a Lon-   don pressman:—   "It was a clear starlight night. We were an-   chored half a mile from the shore, nor'-nor'- west of the Mucking Light, and all regulation   lights showing," he said. "The bo'sun, an able   seaman, and an apprentice were on watch.   I was on the companion way—just chased a cat out of the cabin," parenthetically observed the captain of the Loch Vennacher, "when I heard shouting forrard: and then 'thump!'—she was in us. ...

TWO ROYAL SCRAPBOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

TWO ROYAL SCRAPBOOKS.   The King has ordered, through the leading in- ternational news-cutting agencies, eight sets of scrapbooks, each set to contain whatever was printed or spoken of the late Queen at the time of her death. The clippings, gathered in every country, and in all tongues, and ranging from the highest il- lustrated weeklies to the cheapest provincial   papers, fill one hundred' volumes, although the   pages are of full newspaper size. They are pasted   upon light grey Bristol board, and each page is   hinged before binding. The binding: is of morocco —half the sets red, half green. There will be gold clasps and corner-pieces, and each volume stamp- ed with the Royal arms in heavy gilt. India, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and South Africa will each receive a set as the gift of the King. The children of the late Empress Frederick have ordered the same agency to make books about her; but the volumes will ...

SLIGHTLY MIXED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

SLIGHTLY MIXED.   Some time ago a clergyman, preaching to a Boys' Brigade, adopted as his text:— "Seek ye healtb, both of mind and body." But in the local paper's published account of the sermon next day, this admirable advice was distorted by the carelessness of some compo- sitor into the doubtful recommendation:— "Sneak ye pelf, boys, mind—from anybody!"

THE AGE OP EGYPTIAN CIVILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

THE AGE OP EGYPTIAN CIVILISATION. Resent discoveries seem to have proved that Egyptian civilisation, the claim of which to be the most ancient known has recently been dis- puted on behalf of Babylon, is even earlier than anyone dreamt of. Dr. Flinders Petrie puts the reigns of certain kings who reigned at Aby- dos, in Upper Egypt, at 4900 or 4800 B.C. Four gold bracelets have been found in a mummy, to which the date 4715 B.C. is assigned, and which show the most perfect workmanship.
