My Walk to Church. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 8 December 1888

My Walk to Church. Breathing the summer-scented air Along the bowery mountain way, Each Lord's day morning I repair To serve my church, a mile away. Below, the glorious river lies A bright broard-breasted, sylvan sea And round the sumptuous highlands rise, Fair as the hills of Galilee. Young flowers are in my path. I hear Music of unrecorded tone. The heart of Beauty beats so near, Its pulses modulate my own. The shadow on the meadow's breast Is not more calm than my repose As, step by step, I am the guest Of every living thing that grows. Ah, something melts along the sky, - And something rises from the ground, And fills the inner car and eye Beyond the sense of sight and sound. Itis not that I strive to see WVhat Love in lovely shapes has wrought Its gracious messages to me Come, like the gentle dews, unsought. I merely walk with open heart Which feels the secret in the sign; But, oh, how large and rich my part In all that makes the feast divine ! Sometimes I hear the happy birds ...

Big Fish of the Caspian. In the south-east of Russia is the greatest salt lake in the world, the Caspian Sea, which has an area of 130,000 square miles, that is, an area greater than all the British Islands put together, with an additional island larger than England thrown inextra, is intimately connected witi the fresh water fisheries of the Volga and the Umral, for the fish migrate from fresh water to salt and from salt water to fresh thereas elsewhere. The great fishery of this region is that for the sturgeon and its kindred; also for the salmon, white salmon and knife fish. The sturgeon family attains to an enormous size, especially the beluga, which sometimes measures twenty feet in length and weighs 2,500 pounds, though speimcens of over 1,000 pounds are rare. The sewruga is also a giant, but the other sturgeons are seldom taken above six feet in length The number of these giants disposed of an nually at Astrakhan has in some years been enormous, 300,000 sturgeous, 100,000 bel...

Scraps. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 8 December 1888

Scraps. The Portsmouth Board of Guardians have built a swimming bath, holding 20,000gal. of water, for the use of the pauper children, all of whom are to be taught to swim before they leave school. A little, knowledge is certainly a dangerous thing when applied to chemistry. To failitato the cleaning of a bottle which contained glycerine, a hospital nurse poured in some nitric acid, thereby unintentionally forming the explosive compound nitro-glycerine. The bottle burst in her hands, and her face was badly mangled by the pieces. A new use for cement has been found in England in the making of telegraph polee. Thu poles consist of a iron shell filled up with the cement or concrete, which encloses a core of wire netting which is carried up the interior. They are claimed to be much lighter than those of cast iron, and practically indestructible. According to the latest official returns, which are for 1886i, 24,841 ersons were killed by wild beasts in that year m British India. Of these ...

The Pope's Ring. The realPapal ring is the Fisherman's ring, unnulkapiseatoris, so called from the Pope con aidering himself the successor of St. Peter, who was originally a fisherman, and to whom and St. Andrew Christ said-' Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.' It was the Pope's rind of investure, and was placed on his finger sumediately after the election. It was of a massive gold. The figure of St. Peter, seated in a boat, with a not in each hand, was engraved on the bezel of the ring. The ring was the Pope's lesser seal or signet, used for documents of lesser consequence, and the impression is usually made on red wax or stamped on paper. The Bulla was the Pope's great seal ; it was employed for giving validity to instruments of greater importance, and the impression of it is always on lead; it was affixed to the document by a string, the docu ment itself taking the name of Bull from the leaden seal attached to it.

NOT ENGAGED. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 8 December 1888

NOT ENGAGED. It was at Harvard class day, and as she hada ravihng gon she was in a blissful Crame of mind. Besides, she was almost as good as engaged to Tom Burns, to whose spread she merrilly wended her way, properly attended by a chaperon who knew how to keep discreetly out of sight. But fate was unkind to her. She had hardly set her foot inside of Tom's chambers than the host was introducing her to a man whose face gave her a dreadfulshock. 'You ought to know. my, cousin, Jack Harmes,' Tom said cordially. And what punishment could be too severe for that wretch of a Jack Harmes, who had the cruelty to rejoin: ' Oh, we do know each other. We were engaged five years ago while we were in college. Weren't we, lliss Bla nkY' ' Oh, no, Mr. Harmrs, not engaged. You know mamma said that the idea of my being engaged before I was fifteen was absurd, and I said I didn't mind giving you up if I could have a new sunshade.

SAGRICULTURAL'NOTES. The hay harvest is well forward in the early districts, and in many instances stacking. has commenced. It goes without saying that the yield is very light; the average will not ex ceed half that of last year. The prices, however, for the new hay will be good, as during thepast few weeks old hay has gone up to a very hih figure. Good manger is now worth from £10 to £10 10s. per ten in the 3lelbourne market. Some of the Werribeehay-growerhavethis week been getting £10 a ton for their old hay, and from indinctions there is every prospect of price going still higher, or there is certain to be a large demand nor itin New South Wales during the summer months. The sudden heat of las week has brought the wheat crops to maturity, and stripping operations will very soon be general. Tlit wheat crop, although short, is well headed, and there are hopes that the average yield will not be as low as the growers were inclined to anticipate some few weeks back, and the whole of t...

THE NAVAL PROGRAMME FOR 1889-90. (ST. JAMES'S BUDGET.) [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 8 December 1888

THE NAVAL PROGRA LMME FOR 1889-90. (s6. J~tA's nBDOBT.) Curiosity has not unnaturally been aroused by the somewhat portentous statements lately made by Lord George Hamilion and Mr. Ashmead Bartlett about a complete scheme of naval development which is to meet with universal approval from the public, the navy, and all the cntics alike. There can be little doubt that this promised scheme is, in effect, the new ship building programnueu and if it is really, as the First Lord says, "based on national roquire ments," there is no reason why it should not give general satisfaction. From the evi dence given by Lord George last June before the Navy Estimates Commettee, we learn that the consideration of the shipbuilding pro gramme for 18?8-89 commenced m June, 1887, that in August of the same year assent was given so far as concerned certaiu types of ship, and that the whole programme was practically customary procedure, and there is good reason for believing that not only next year's pro gr...
