COLONIAL EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

COLONIAL EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS. An interesting report has been prepared by the Inspector-General of Victorian schools (Mr. J. Main) and the principal of the Training College (Mr. O. A. Topp) on the results of their Inspection of the State school systems In their own colony, New South Wales, and South Australia. Some time ago the Assistant- Inspector- General (Mr. Broadribb) reported strongly in favor of the educational methods adopted In the senior colony as compared with those in force in Victoria, and the later enquiry is a sequel to the one con ducted by that gentleman. Messrs. Main and Topp have ably ful filled a difficult but Important task, and as their report appears to be thoroughly Impartial Its conclusions should be of value to each of the colonies affected. It is stated that in general intelligence the children of the large towns in the three colonies are nearly equal, but in the country schools the Victorian children appear to be some what ahead in smartness, a fact that m...

COOTS: THE STORY OP A DAY'S DUCKING. [By John Francis Adams, in Harper's Young People.] Paei I. Mackenzie Rogers and little Joe Harmon were going down the middle staircase of the old North Middle College quite slowly and carefully, for doubtless from pure pol'teness, they did not wish to wake the mathematical tutor, who occupied the room just below them, and the old staircase will creak unless you step warily. They carried their guns, wore heavy high- top boo X and over dogskin jackets and; shooting-coats they had their thick overcoats the pockttB of Joe's shooting-MPt were full of cartilages, and Mac had under his arm a large tin cartridge box It was pitch dark, for it was only 5 o'clock in the morning on the 25 th of Novercber, and the sky was more than gray witb cloud e— it was coal black. *' I don't Bee much sign of a fine day,' Joe said, stopping in the doorway and turning his chubby faceup to the leafless dripping branches of tbe elms on the campus.

THE IRISH DELEGATES AT THE TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE IRISH DELEGATES AT THE TOWN HALL, The Irish delegates who addressed the Immense assembly at the Town Hall last week met with an enthusiastic recep tion. The chief honors were of course bestowed on Mr. Dillon, and Ms was the speech of the occasion. It would have been impossible for any one susceptible to the charm of earnest and impassioned oratorv to listen without deeD interest to what he had to say and said with such effect. He simply enchained the attention of his audience by bis vivid and graphic pictures of the state of Ireland, and his moving and eloquent appeals on her behalf. Among the Irish leaders there is probably none better qualified or situated than Mr. Dillon himself to pre sent the case of the Nationalist party In the most favorable light. Though as an orator he lacks the polish displayed by Mr. Redmond In the speeches given by that gentleman during Mb Australian tour, Mr. Dillon Is certainly a master of the art of stimulating and arousing masses of men by the po...

There was not much of beauty in the prospect to be seen from the window, for winter had laid grim, relentless fingers on flower and leaf, on green meadow and. woody uplands, and robbed- them of all autumn's brighter hues.

gilttttb ftoitrg. MY LOVE. Not as all other women are Ib she that to my soul is dear ; Her glorious fancies come from far, Beneath the silver evening star; And yet her breath is ever near. Great feelings she has of her own, Which lesser souls may never know ; God givetk them to her alone, And sweet they are as any tone Wherewith the wind may chance to blow. -» . Yet in herself ehe dwe'leth not, * Although no horns were ha!f so fair; No simpleet duty is forgot ; Xjife hath no dim and lonely spot That doth not in her aunahine share. She doeth little kindnesses Which most leave undone or despise ; 3For naught that sets one heart at ease And giveth happiness and peace Is low esteemed in her eyes. She hath no scorn of comffion tbing* : And, though she seems of otb«=r birth, Round us her heart entwines and clings, And patiently she folds her wings To read the humble paths of earth. BleBsing is she; God made her so ; And detds of weekday holiness Pall from her noiseless A3 the snow ; If or...

THE PREMIER IN THE NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE PREMIER IN THE NORTH. The Premier is making a tour through the north. Ostensibly his object la to explain the working of the District Ooun- | ells Act, but It is more than suspected that the real purpose ia to propitiate bis ! constituents who are offended by the action of the Government on the seed wheat question. The movement of the Premier was a bold one. He knows and dares not deny that opinion generally is hostile to him. But Mr. Playford having lost his hold upon one district is by no means reconciled to the prospect of part- j ing company with the constituency he ' represents at present. Hence his ' resolution to courageously face the ' discontent he has aroused, and to i beat lb down. The Premier has a hearby, j emphatic manner which usually stands him in good stead, and he started on his tour with the evldenb belief that lb would help him out even in the presence of un friendly audiences. Bat Mr. Playford. has this time reckoned without his host. Thus far his march thro...

This was followed upward to near the surface, where it ran out to pipe-like veins. In fol lowing down it appeared to extend lengthways on the lode, and the gold appeared to be more generally distributed. A vertical shaft sunk to a depth of 150 feet failed to teach settled country, and to thoroughly test the claim this should be continued to at least 300 feet. The bedrocks consist of day, Blate, and sandy shales , both very soft. The reef iB composed of decomposed daystone with quartz and gossan. There...
