AN AUSTRALIAN MYTH—THE BUNYIP. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1890

AN AUSTRALIAN MYTH- THE BUNYIP. Tho blaoks of Australia, like all savage races, have their own store of superstitious legends, whioh huvo boon linndoil dowinfroingonorntion to generation. Chief amongst the myths of ltho Aiisfcrulian-aboriginos-is-the buuyip, a logondary monstor, the mention of whoso name was suf ?neioiit.'lta 'ma-k'o tliel 'flbravest of the primeval forost kings shiver in abjoat terror. Every tribe of blaoks tails its own story of tho bunyip, and each description of the monster differ* from tho otlior. The roanou is obvious, the bunyip being a creation simply baueil on bo mo of the midnight voioos whioh arise in the heart of the Australian bush when the majority of animated nature is sound asleep. The bunyip was understood to inhabit swamps andgoabout at night, like a roaring lion seeking whom ho may devour. \ His presence was indicated to the cowering native by a low booming sound, in all probability tho noise made by the harmless bittern when seeking T.hisfobd'iri...

CLIFFY ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1890

CLIFFY ISLAND. Cliffy Island lies to the north west of the Promontory, only a few hours' steaming from it, and in the fair way of coasting vessels bound for; Sydney. It is one of a group of similar inlands,' and is nothing but a mass of bare rook rising up from the sea to a height of perhaps a couple of hundred feet. To be a lighthouse keoper here is to be ' marooned,' indeed, and yet on this rook, without sufficient soil on it to grow the hardiest weed, two little children, daughters of the lighthouse keeper, are at pre sent passing through their girlhood. There is a strange fissure in the rooks not far from the landing place. . It seems as if one portion of tho island had slipped away from tho other and left a gaping chasm only a few feet wide, at the foot of whioh, if you have nerve enough to look down, you can seo the waters surging and bubbling like a boiling caldron. A primitive bridge formed of planks spans the chasm, but as it is without a hand rail the traveller has. to be ...

DINNER HOUR, DUNEDIN WHARF. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1890

DINNER HOUR, DUNEDIN WHARF. Dunedin, being the chief port of Middle Island, is 'generally pretty well thronged with shipping. Although it does not. transact the immense amount of business that Melbourne or Sydney do, still its wharves and piers during working hours generally presont a vory lively aspect. Steam winches rattle awny, lifting from the hold of one vessel machinery and goods from London or Liverpool, while, perhaps, on the other side they are per forming a similar service to a cargo of bananas and cocoanuts brought, from the coral seas. On every side is bustle and seeming con fusion. Suddenly 12- o'olook^ goes. The winch ceases to rattle, the drivers put their feed bags on their horses' heads and pick a soft place to have their dinner on. Then comes the smoke, and by the time that is finished two bells goes and work is resumed again. Our illustration is from an instantaneous photograph taken by Mr. Morris, the well known photographer.

THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1890

Mrs. Brown-Potter and Mr. Bellew dosed their second dramatic season in Melbourne on Friday, the 12th Septembor. Their popularity had been greatly on the increase, and they took their departure when success, pecuniary as well as artistic, was coming in full tide. During their stay they produced a classio drama en titled Hero and Leander, which was favorably criticised and well supported by the public In no other pieoe, not even in Juliet and La Tosca, had this lady appeared to more advantage. From Adelaide she proceeds to Sydney, thence to New Zealand, when she returns to Paris, where her home is. At the Theatre Royal we have had Mr. Hubert O'Grady appear ing ? in one of his pwn Irish dramas, entitled Famine. Neither the author nor tho actor has created *a sensation. The latter is very amusing, but his business is some what stale, and the piece is written merely to afford the O'Grady a chance of distinguishing himself. He has been drawing very indifferent houses, and his season is no...

A NEW ZEALAND SAW MILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1890

A NEW ZEALAND SAW MILL. Next to wool and mutton the most promising, production of New Zealand is undoubtedly timber. Of this it has an almost inexhaustible supply. To use ,T. A. Fronde's words, ' No Arden ever saw such forests, and no lover ever carved his mistress's name on such trees as aro scattered over tbe North Iriland.' Tho most largely used ~6t all is, of 'course,' kauri, and next' to it comes totara manuka, black bir'oh, &o. As might bo expected with timber in such quan tities, saw mills are plentiful. ' Wherever' there is a forest there you. will fin 1 a saw; mill, perhaps .two or- three. As long as the timber lasts tho sawn and axes are hard at it, and when it is all- out out then the mill is shifted away to where timber is plentiful and a- similar process is .gone through.' Our engraving illustrates the type of -saw mill to be found almost everywhere in the North Island.

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1890

Tiie weather during tho past month has boon of a changeable charaoter, with sufficient rain to keep the soil in a moist condition and enablo the ploughing of fallow land to bo proceeded with' under favorable conditions. Some hail storms have occurred and the temperature has been rather below the average, but no ill effects upon farm crops have been produced ; grass is every where abundant and the grain crops are in a vigorous condition and making rapid progress. As is always the case to some extent, isolated speoimens of the wheat rust have appeared ; Mr. M 'Alpine, vegetable pathologist, has received a number of samples whioh have appeared on self-sown wheat, oats and barley. Of course the increaso or otherwise of the rust fungus will depend entirely on . the kind of weather that may afterwards prevail. Butter faotories continue to increase, a large concern was opened at Grassmere towards the end of the month ; De Laval separator and im proved churns are used, and it is intended to...

, ^Jl/1 V ^^tt^^^^r* ^^3JjjUj|^3 THE LABOR CRISIS. j i The most serious event in connection with tb'evlabor crisis took place in Sydney on the :10th in'st;- 'Early in the morning a 'number of trollies were sent to Darling Harbor to load ^wop'rstbied there, for the purpose of taking it ?;tojthe Orient Company's wharf, Ciroular Quay, ' where it is to be loaded on the Orient s. Lusi tania. ..ItlwaB known that it was being loaded 1iip/*and-'a orowd of strikers quickly began to' gather , in the vicinity where the work was pro ceeding. By the time the loading was com pleted the excitement was intense. To show probably that they intended to defy the strikers, the trollies were driven by a number of leading wool 'Warehousemen and oarriers of the city. At about 10.30 eight lorries laden with wool issued into the street, guarded by a large troop of mounted police, foot police ?; and specials. Their appearance was the signal for a great out burst of howling and furious demonstration. The;; tro...

SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1890

'?I ^^ — ? *''?!? II ? . By a series of timely concessions, aihoit manoeuvres, and occasionally a prctenco of firmness, the Government have contrived to weather the storm raised over their Railway Construction Bill. They were worse than beaten upon their, motion to refer the measuro to a i select committee of the House, with powers restricted to the question of cost. The amendment moved by Mr. Officer, with the proposed limitation expunged, wan carried, the Ministry in a body supporting it. But Mr. Gillies, ever fruit ful of resources, was not to bo overcome by even a swooping vote of the' legislature It was clear oven before this that he was determined to pro tract his term of office by shelving the bill for the Hosaion, no that if he were beaten upon it next session he and1 his colleagues would ; have something witli which to go to the country. Ignoring, therefore, the true significance of the dofcat sustained over Mr. Ofiicor's amendment, he at once gave notice of his intention t...
