No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

Great Britain has about one sheep for each inhabitant. In Germany, it is said, one man out of every 213 goes to college ; in Scotland, one in 520 : in the United States, one in 2,000 ; in England, one in 5,000. Per- haps these figures help to explain the rapid strides that Germany has taken in the latter half of this century. In all parts of the world she has pushed her trade with a success that has astonished and alarmed the Anglo-Saxon world. It is high time, indeed, that we thought of sending more boys to college, and giving them a better training in business, and in the various trades and industries upen which a nation's wealth depends.

THE BATTLE OF OMDURMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

THE BATTLE OF OMDURMAN. The battle of Omdurman was marked by two incidents for which it will be long remembered. The first was the heroic courage of the Dervishes, who, caught as they were in a storm of well-directed bullets, which mowed them down like grass before the scythe, nevertheless showed no signs of flinching. They fought with a dash and fearlessness which won the admiration of the whole Anglo Egyptian army. Although they have for y ears past made Central Africa the scene of indescribable horrors, one can never forget the brave stand they made. Hie c-tJtier in- cident was the brilliant charge of the 21st Lancers. The charge, like the famous charge of the Light Brigade, was a blunder, and formed no part of the Sirdar's plan. Colonel Martin had been ordered to cut ott the re- treat of the enemy. Riding along at the head 0/ his troop he came unexpectedly upon a hollow with a water- course in it. There were massed 3,000 Dervishes whom no one appears to have seen. Without a mome...

Great Britain and France. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

Groat Britain and France. Newfoundland threatens to become a second Fashoda. The French have des- patched three powerful cruisers and the British squadron at Halifax has been strengthened. It seems to be the policy of France to apply the goad whenever she can. By treaty she was allowed a stretch of Newfoundland coast for the purpose of drying fish, and she has endeavoured to establish a sovereignty over the whole coast-line in question. As a matter of fact, English colonists are practically excluded from the enjoy- ment of their own shores, and the high- handed proceedings of the French have led to many quarrels between the fisher- men of the rival nations. In these disputes England has acted with much forbear- ance, so as to avoid irritating her touchy neighbour. Forbearance is a wise policy, so long as it is not interpreted to mean weakness._

A great Australian doctor died last month, at Wentworth Falls, in the Blue Mountains. His name was Sir Alfred Roberts. He did a great deal for the medical profession in New South Wales, especially for Prince Alfred Hospital, and, though he had given up practice for some years, he was still held in great reverance by numbers of his old patients. He died full of years and honours, in great peace.

NEWS OF THE EMPIRE Trans-African Railway. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

Trans-African Railway. At last, Cecil Rhodes, the greatest of all Empire builders, finds the opportunity of realising an idea he has persistently cherished. One of the last cables of the old year tells us that he has left Capetown for England, whence he will proceed to the Sudan, to make arrangements for a rail- way which, when finished, will join Capetown and Alexandria. His energy is immense, and when he takes a thing in hand, it is done, even if it is paid for out of his private purse. Luckily he lias the millions necessary to carry out big things, and the desire to use them for unselfish purposes. As he said once to General Gordon, " It is no use our having mazy ideas ; it is no use giving vent to our imaginations. If we have imaginative ideas we must have pounds, shilling, and pence to carry them out."

The Governor of New South Wales, Lord Hampden, goes home in March, before his term of office has expired. Our Governors are appointed by the Home Government for five years, but Lord Hampden has not been here four years. He is called home by urgent private business, and he will prove a loss to Sydney. Lord and Lady Hampden have been very pleasant, social, un- assuming people, and have won the hearts of all who came in contact with them.

THE POETS' POET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

Spenser Writing the " Faerie Queen." THE POETS' POET. In Elizabeth's time there was many a rough buccaneer and adventurer who had the heart of a poet. Some of them, amid a life of turmoil, of fighting and suffering, found time to compose verses so melo- dious that they will charm to all time. Spenser, however, was not a man of action. There are few incidents in his life, unless it be the burning of his castle, "Kilcolman," by the wild Irish of those days. It is true he must have seen every side of life. He knew and moved among the best and noblest of the youth of England-scholars, courtiers, adventures. No man was more lucky in his friends ; Gabriel Harvey, Sir Philip Sidney, Sir Walter Raleigh were among them, and Elizabeth smiled graciously upon him. On the other hand, he began life poor and died at a tavern " for lack of bread," if wc arc to believe Ben. Jonson ; and his life in Ireland among a rude, half-savage pea- santry, who hated English landlords, was not always a bed of ro...

Thc new governor is the Earl of Beau- champ. He is a young man, being not quite 27 years old, and unmarried. Those who know him speak highly of him. In tlie course of an interview, Lord Brassey remarked that Earl Beauchamp was an Oxford man, of studious habits, fond of art and literature, in every way an accomplished man, and a worthy son of a worthy father. His father was once Paymaster-General, and for a time was a prominent figure in the House of Commons. At the dinner in London celebrating the New South Wales Anniversary, Lord Jersey proposed a special toast in honour of Lord Beauchamp, who, in a brief and manly speech, said that if he followed Lord Jersey's example and advice he would win the approbation of the New South Wales people. He also expressed the keenest interest in the colony and its legislation, and said he would spare no effort to justify the confidence of the Queen and promote the colony's welfare.

The long, weary, cruel drought still continues in many parts of our country. But the blessed rain has come to others, and so the sorrow is not universal. When Christmas Day broke on us, it came with rain over hundreds of miles of thirsty land, and made a happy, happy day for thousands. _

FOREIGN COUNTRIES. The Kaiser's Pilgrimage. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

FOREIGN COUNTRIES. The Kaiser's Pilgrimage. The Kaiser's Pilgrimage to the East has been more than a pageant, or a plea- sure trip. It is merely part of a policy long-pursued - the steady and silent Germanizing of Turkey arid Asia Minor. " Constantinople is becoming as German as Ber lin. When the German Ambassa- dor left the other day to prepare for .thc Kaiser's tour, the whole platform was crowded with Germans. They all woro fezes, and they all were Pashas or Ministers. They represented the effective civil and military administration of the Ottoman Empire. While England and Russia have been disputing about the shell, Germany has carried off the oyster. Nor is it only in Constantinople that her influence is seen. Germans are steadily pushing on their railroad through Asia Minor. Every station is a little German colony. Before we know where we are, Asiatic-Turkey will have become a Ger- man province." These are the words of a Russian, but the history of the past few years bears witn...

Industrial Progress of Russia. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

Industrial Progress of H uss ia. Within the last few years cotton mills and factories have sprung up in all parts of the Empire. Where at one time they were content with Manchester goods, the German gradually crept in with the cheaper article, better adapted to Russian tastes and requirements. Presently their ambition rose above this, and they asked why they should not themselves become producers. Factories were started, Eng- lish machinery imported, and English foremen and engineers placed in control. Then the English engineer was supplanted by the German, the machinery perhaps got out of order, and the introduction of German machinery, accompanied by American, naturally followed. By this time Russia had smarted schools for the training of a special class as engineers. These are known in Russia as " tech niks." . . . They are supplanting American, German and English, in their own country, and are beginning to turn out machinery of their own design.

THE OLD YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

THE OLD YEAR. The year that has just passed has been notable for many things. In Australia there has been nothing exciting except the struggle over Federation, which appears to be still as far off as ever. The drought, of course, is with us again, bub droughts are of such common occurrence that we have grown familiar with their terrors. Elsewhere the year has been big with events. The cables have groaned with news of war and rumours of war. The great nations of Europe have been, and are still, preparing for a struggle, which staved off by skilful diplomacy for the moment, seems inevitable. The Czar's proposal for a universal disarmament was no doubt the expression of a sincere desire on his part, but Russia's move- ments in the Far East, and her feverish activity in building more battleships form a curious commentary on the scheme. Nothing has been more remarkable of late years than the general scramble after colonies and outlets for commerce. Africa and the Far East are the bones o...

NEWS of the WORLD - AUSTRALIAN NEWS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

The Lady St. Aubyn, an Australian vessel, called at the Vanikoro Islands recently, and discovered some relics of La Perouse. The story of La Perouse is very pathetic. When Governor Phillip anchored in Botany Bay, on January 20th, 1788, he found the place unsuitable for settlement, and he went round to seek a better harbour, and found Port Jackson, where Sydney stands to-day. While he was searching for another har- bour, two French ships arrived at Botany Bay. They were L'Astrolabe and the Boussole, under the command of La Perouse. When they found that the English had taken possession of Australia they made no trouble about it, but accepted the hospitality of our people graciously and then sailed away, and were never heard from again on earth.
