WHEN STRENGTH PAID [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 7 November 1926

WHEN STRENGTH PAID The Emperor Maximilian II.. wLo reigned from 1 364 to 1576, selected a son in-law in the most extraordinary manner. He had a natural daughter, Helena, re puted to have been very beautiful. There were, of course, many suitors for her hand, but of thcEC two knights, a Ger man and a Spaniard, had about equal claims. To decide between them the em peror devised a unique contest. He had a huge leather sack made, and informed the rivals that the one who could put the other into it should have Ms daughter. The contest took place in the presence o' the court and the princess. The Ger man, Andreas Ebcrhard Bauber, who was one of the Emperor's councillors, won. He was supposed to be the most powerful man of his time. The modern phrase, 'to get the sack,' is believed by some authorities to have originated from this singular method of disposing of a prin cess's hand.

On the arrival of the 'First Fleet'' at Botany Bay on January IS, 1788, Captain Phillip went ashore, and was met by a band of natives, who, from their hostile appearance, were deter minded to oppose his landing. He was able to convince them that his errand was a peaceful one, and when he offered them beads and coloured cloths they flung down their weapons and. accepted' his. presents in. a .triendiy spirit. ??.'?- ' ' Phillip immediately began an ex amination /of the bay, and lie speedily came to the conclusion that a settle ment along its. niarshy shores would prove unsatisfactory. Leaving an officer in charge of the fleet he or ganised a boat expedition' to inspect Port Jackson, which had been named by Captain Cook', but had not been, explored by him. There he discovered what he has described as- 'the finest harbour in the world, ...

H*re Shakespeare gives a descrip tion, a. noble description of that noblest of all animals, the horse; he describes a horse that is ill a horse should be. What more beautiful a sight is to 'be found than that of a thoroughbred racehorse, with its lithe, grateful body, and its noble, intelligent head! Munh has been written about the faithfulness of horses, much has been written of their affection for masters Wad treat them kindly, and of tueir wlsd6m.

EARLY STRUGGLES THE FOOD PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 7 November 1926

EARLY STRUGGLES THE FOOD PROBLEM. It was thought by tiie ismien govern ment that the new settlement would be self-supporting in a very short period, but this did not prove to be the case. Cap tain Phillip found the convicts indolent, inefficient, and incapable of continued effort. His efforts were hampered on every side. It is a remarkable fact that that there was not one man under his charge with a knowledge of farming. In a letter to the Undcr-Secretary of the Admiralty he declared 'if 50 farmers were sent out with, their families they would do more in one rear to render the Colony independent of the mother coun try than a thousand convicts.' Here is seen the first suggestion for the importa tion of free emigrants. The Colony was dependent on the sup ply ships, and as these came at irregular intervals, food became a serious problem to Phillip. On February 14, 1788, Lieu tenant King was sent to form a settle ment at Norfolk Island, which had been discovered by Captain Cook. Phillip...

A TALE OF TWO CITIES After reading Dickons'* book, 'A Tale of Two Cities,' I can quite understand his saying in the preface to that narra tive: 'I have eo far veriSed what ie done and suffered in these pages, as that I have certainly done and suffered it all myself.' Dickens expresses so beautifully the feelings of his characters that 'one's heart cries out in sympathy with their every mood. His characters are very numerous, yet so distinctive that there is not one of which X have read that Is not stamped upos my mind by its very individuality.
