Memorial to Sir George Grey. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

Memorial to Sir George Grey. Mr. Cecil Rhodes has given =£50 to the fund for raising a memorial to the late Sir George Grey, who was successively Governor of South Australia, New Zealand, The Cape, and New Zealand again. Sir George Grey, in policy, was the forerunner of Mr. Rhodes. Five and forty years ago those in power were crying out against increasing Britain's pos- sessions and responsibilities abroad, and were for abandoning what we already held in South Africa, retain- ing only the Cape. " Little Eng- landers," as they were called, held that the authority of the Queen had been already too far extended, and that England could not supply troops to maintain a constantly advancing frontier. Sir George Grey's policy was the opposite-that of federating the whole of the South African States, civilising the natives, and laying broad and deep the founda- tions of an empire worthy of Britain and her Queen.

THE NEWSPAPER. NEWSPAPER is one of the signs of the times. It is the most marvellous product of the life of the race on earth, and it is so common that we fail to realise how wonderful it is. When we sit down to breakfast, we get our morning paper with the news from all over the world : What the Queen of England did at Nice yesterday what the president of the French Republic said last night, and what the enemies of Britain are doing al the world over. It comes to us by cable, under the sea, and for one penny we get all the news in our daily morning paper. Our forefathers in Australia had no cables to tell them what was doing in the old land. If the King of England died, our people did not hear of it for months, until a sailing vessel had won her way round the stormy Cape with the news. When Queen Victoria ascended the throne in 1H37, there were no submarine cables, no steamships, and no "news of the world " as there are to-day. The daily newspaper is indeed a wonderful sign of the t...

Public Schools' Athletic Association. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

Public Schools" Athletic Association. DEAR BOYS AND GIRLS, The Public Schools' Athletic Associa- tion closes its year's work at the end of this month. You are losing the services of Mr. Southwell, wrho has been a most energetic and successful secretary for four 3Tears. He will be succeeded by Mr. Bridle, who will endeavour to make your sports as successful and interesting during the coming year as heretofore. A most successful year has just termi- nated. Cricket and football and tennis have been entered into with zest. The Annual Sports meeting at the Agricul- tural Ground was a booming success, and this was followed by the swimming season. This branch of sport promises to outdo all others, judging by the general enthusiasm displayed this year. It will be many a year before those who wit- nessed it will forget the great Champion- ship Carnival at the Fitzroy Dock. It was there the champions met, and there 3,000 people gathered to witness many closely-contested struggles, (¡iris, wha...

A Metal-Cutting Beetle. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

A Metal Cutting" Beetle. Very few people have any idea of.the miracles of insect life ! Little boys and girls rarely notice the wonders that are all about them. We have some strange insects in Australia, but there is one in South America that can cut metal. This curious faculty was accidentally dis- covered by Mr. F. W. Devoe, some years ago. A friend had seut him some specimens of this queer insect from South America. He was busily engaged when the insects arrived, and simply provided temporary quarters for them in a glass jar having a pewter top. Within less than forty-eight hours they had cut holes in the metal sufficient to get their heads through, and would soon have escaped had their operations re- mained undetected. The name of this wonderful beetle is Zephorvs Melicanue.

Prince Myall AN AUSTRALIAN WRITTEN FOR "THE CHILDRENS' NEWSPAPER." [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

FAIUT SÏÔÛT J QinincLE9D j FÄIDT Sïoûï' WRITTEN FOR " THE CHILDRENS' NEWSPAPER. " was even a rumour, in the days when the blacks were in full possession of our right land, there lived a black king named Tugge ONG before Australia rah. He had one child, an only son called Prince Myall. The Queen, before her death, had spoiled this boy, so that, now he is sixteen years old, he is a sore trial to his father. One day. after Myall had been particularly tiresome, the King said to him, "Myall, you are not a good son to me, you try to do all in your power to vex me. You must leave me, for I cannot bear with your behaviour any longer. I have resolved that I will not see you again until you are at least obedient and respectful, so good-bye." With these wolds, the old King turned sorrowfully away. Myall only laughed contemptu- ously, as he had often done before, when his father had thus spoken. Presently he wandered aw ay among the trees, and began thoughtlessly throwing stones at the young ka...

It isa strange, weird place, this great hush plain, SO far away from the noise of a town. At night all i- so still save for the hoarse cry of the mopoke or the shrill scream of the lonely curlew. The cries of all the birds are as familiar to me as the whistle of the tram is to a city child. I will not like living in the town for one can never gel away into a quiet spot to read without being disturbed. Did yon ever read Marcus Clark's preface to A. h. (Jordon's poems?

Dr. CONAN DOYLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

Dr. CONAN DOYLE. At a great meeting held at the Mansion House, London, it was decided to celebrate in 1901 the millenary of Alfred the Great, " England's greatest king." Dr. Conan Doyle (the author of " Sherlock Holmes," "The White Company," and several other novels) made a very clever speech at the meeting. The following extract from it is quoted from the sydney Daily Telegraph report. Speaking of King Alfred, Dr. Doyle said : " He was persevering, dogged and formidable in action. In thought he was liberal- surprisingly liberal for the age in which lie lived. While he repulsed the armed invaders of his country, he eagerly welcomed those other invaders who brought learning, wisdom, and a knowledge of the fine arts in their train. He had-or possibly inaugurated- that respect for law and order which was now the distinguishing mark of every British colony in lands of wdiich Alfred had never heard. He was an educationalist on a scale to which we had hardly yet attained. He was a builder...

GLASS V. 1st Question : " Dieu et mon Droit, " translated, is " God and my right." This phrase (Dieu et mon droit) was the parole of Richard I. at the battle of Gisorsin 1198, Richard mean- ing that he was no vassal of France, but owed his royalty and his kingship to God alone. The French were vanquished in the battle of Gisors, and on account of this signal victory, the battle word was adopted as the Royal motto of England. 2nd Question : A jeweller has a brooch, which cost him £2 6s 6d.

NEWS OF THE EMPIRE The Samoan Islands. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

Tne Samoan Islands. Out in the Pacific Ocean, six days' sail from Sydney, or five from Auckland, lie the Samoan Islands -perhaps the love- liest of all the coral islands of the Pacific. The group consists of nine islands and a number of islets and rocks. They were discovered by the French navigator Bougainville in 1768 A.D. Their present population is about 36,000 natives, and their exports are copra (dried cocoanut kernel), coffee, tobacco, cotton, sugar cane, bananas, and oranges. Since 1889 the Government of the islands has been under the joint control of England, Germany, and the United States. There is a native king ; but a Chief Justice, appointed by the three Powers, administers law and decides disputes about land, trade, etc. Each of the three countries has a resident Consul there. Re- cently the ofiice of king became vacant. There were two native candidates, Malietoa and Mataafa. The Chief Justice decided in favour of the former. Then the latter, with the sanction of the Ge...
