Explosion at Toulon. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
Explosion at Toulon. A terrible explosion occurred at a place in the South of France early in the morning of March 5th. Toulon, a naval and military port of France, is defended by numerous and powerful ports and batteries along the shores and on the adjacent heights. Around the harbour are immense magazines and arsenals where arms and ammunition are stored. It is feared the explo- sion was a deliberately planned out- rage. Anyway, 100 tons of powder were exploded, and g eat destruc- tion of life and property resulted ; 64 persons were killed, and 13 in- jured. People were thrown from their beds by the concussion, houses were demolished, and numbers of the people buried in the ruins. The explosion was felt at Nice, nearly 80 miles distant. Explosions of gun- powder have occurred since at the French Government magazines in Marseilles and at the Bourges arsenal.

EMPIRE BUILDERS. CECIL RHODES. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
EMPIRE BUILDERS. - CECIL RHODES. II. H E diamond millionaire was now iii Parliament-the Cape Par- liament that is but not for a mo- ment did he forget the great plans he had formed. At the same time he did not neglect the every-day work of politics. He knew that to compass great things he must not let the little things take care of themselves. The old saw that if you look after the pence the pounds will look after themselves is only a half truth, but it is the greater half of the truth, if one may use an Irishism. Rhodes' money made him a man of mark ; but his sound sense, and his patient mastery of facts and details won for him the confidence of Dutch and English alike. The Dutch saw in him an " Englishman with an Africander heart," and the English saw in him a man of force and foresight, an Englishman w ho gloried in the Hag without wounding thc feelings of men of other races. From the beginning he tried to soften the bitter hatred which the Hoer felt towards the English ; in whic...
OUR NEW GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
OUR NEW GOVERNOR. The new Governor of New South Wales will leave England in a few days. His name is Earl Beauchamp, and you pro- nounce it as if it were spelled Beecham. An American lady is said to have re- marked to young Earl Beauchamp, on being introduced to him—" Your family must have made a great deal of money out of pills ! " She did not know how it was spelled, or she would never have said &nbsp; that.

CHATTER PAGE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
" Dada, what's the dif- ference between obstinacy and firmness?' &nbsp; "Not much, my son; only that little girls are firm and little boys are obstinate." " Did you enjoy your- self at the picnic, Tommy ?" " Oh, yes, mama ; I had eight cakes and seven cups of tea, a 'leven drinks of lemonade, an' oranges an' biscuits, and I could have had more if I'd anted to.'' It was the chemist's little boy who told the school inspector that "Wat Tyler headed the disinfectants ! " "Go away, you rude, common boy-your father drives a milk-cart ! " " No he don't, he drives a horse." His wardrobe now must be designed on quite a different plan ; He's got too big for frocks and kilts, he's quite a little man. And though he falls and hurts himself, and though he bumps his nose, He may not cry like girls do unless he hurts his clothes. He may not play with dolls and things, nor any girly games ; He won't turn ropes or play hopscotch-his name is Master James. His social life must now go on on quit...
The Last of the "Hereward." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 March 1899
The Last of the " Hereward." Nearly 12 months ago the fine sailing ship " Hereward," during a severe storm was stranded at Maroubra, &nbsp; one of the prettiest of the many bays near Sydney. At either end are projecting rocks, but in the centre is a wide and beautiful sandy beach. On to this, just escaping the dang- erous rocks, was the " Hereward " one night driven by the heavy waves of a great storm. Happily there was no loss of life, but when the sea went down there lay the fine vessel almost high and dry on the beach. Thousands every week went out to view what is happily in Sydney a novel sight ; and many took a keen interest in the efforts that were made to re-float her. After months of work and many disappointments, she was successfully floated, only to be wrecked by heavy seas and squally weather before she was clear of the shore. The wreck was afterwards sold, and is being fast broken up to secure what is valuable, before the waves complete the destruction of this on...

NEWS of the WORLD - AUSTRALIAN NEWS A Brave Girl. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899
À Brave Girl. The other day a man got beyond his depth at the Manly swim- ming baths, and would have undoubtedly been drowned but for his plucky rescue by Miss Hetty Stennett, the fourteen - year - old daughter of the proprietor of the baths. Fully clothed she dived and brought his apparently lifeless body ashore, where with the assistance of her mother she speedily restored him to consciousness. Retty is a brave girl, and her heroic conduct will doubtless be recognised by the Humane Society.
Discontent in the Transvaal. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899
Discontent in the Transvaal. Twenty-one thousand British residents in the Transvaal have peti- tioned the Queen to urge on President Kruger the neces- sity for political reforms. The Uitland ers, or foreigners as theyare called by the Dutch, are Britishers, Americans, Germans, and people of various nationalities engaged in mining and other pursuits. They have many grievances, principal among them being the fact that they have no votes at the elections for the Trans vaal Parliament, though it is they who pay the greater part of the taxes. Recently President Kruger has announced he is ready to con- cede small reforms ; but by his pro- posals even now the Uitlanders would have to reside nine years ina country, which is remote, badly gov- erned, and has other drawbacks, before they could gain a voice in its government, so the concession offered is very slender. The petition has been forwarded by the Governor of Cape Colony for presentation to the Queen ; and as the Transvaal is a Dutch ...
Rabbits for Commerce. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899
Rabbits for Commerce. For long rabbits have been looked on as a curse to the country, but we are waking up to the fact that they may be turned into a source of revenue. In Vic- toria, in one fortnight, over a quarter of a million rabbits were exported. In that colony the rabbit and hare industry supports nearly a thousand . men, and last year it was estimated the trade would realise the substan- tial sum of .£120,000. As a conse- quence we hear little from that colony about rabbits being a pest or a plague.
