STERLING FALL, MILFORD SOUND. Next to the Bqwon Falls, tha.Sterling. Fall is the one concerning which tho visitor to Milford Sound carries away the best recollection. It is the first ho sees on entering through the pas sage into the wonderful region, and is the last object on which his eye rest as lie takes leave of it. The fall is formed of three springs, two of which meet a short way from the head, while tho third joins them near the bottom. Each spring in itself falling from that altitude would from a fine speotaole, so that the effeot produced by three combined can be imagined. Magnifi cent as the fall is, it is dwarfed by the great ness of its surroundings.. On either side of it are great mountains rising 5000 and 6000 feet above the level of the waters of the sound, upon the peaks of tho majority of whioh the foot of man has; never trodden. : From their sides, in some places covered with luxuriant vegetation at others barren and bare, issue, numerous streams, nowfallingin one ...

THE STORY OF A CALF. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 September 1889

THE STORY OF A CALF. To anyone who has had-.to do with - cattle, our. artist's sketch will commend itself for its faith ful delineation of some of v the -incidents in the life of. that seemingly prosaio animal, the calf. To most neonle there is nothing in a calf. He is simply an animal that has deprived the family of a certain quantity of milk per day till ho is big enough to be disposed of to the butcher, and that is the end of him generally. He is no ornament and certainly very, little use except as veal. . But for all that the calf is an animal of great force of character, especially if born anil bred in the solitude of the bush. At .branding he causes more profanity even than a pig, and it takes more men to drive ono '.mickey ' than ninety and nine grown bullocks. - The subject of our sketch is evidently of this' description. Born and bred in an unfrequented part of the station bin mother lias managed to keep him safe past, one branding till on an evil day .the muaterers ran him...
