NO RAIN FOR NINE YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 21 November 1902

NO RAIN FOR NINE YEARS. --·*--- On Suhnday, August 2, 1890, in the district of Africa called the Soultan, with which our own country lilts had such close connection since the end of 18825 occurred an event such as to ourselves is very familiar, but which was most rare for that part of the world, though simply a fall of ruin. On the Saturday it had comlllenced, and next day the camp of the Egyptian Army, with its British leaders at Kosheh, was vis Ited by a severe thunderstorm, with very heavy rain, accompanied by a strong wind: but the tempest was blowing from a very hot quarter, rendering the heat even more trying than it had already continued for it long season, and combined with a sandstorm, which were bdth serious drawbacks. Nevertheless; the rain, the first that had fallen there for nine years, was felt to lie most wel come, for it filled all 'the wells and springs, and the nullahs or ravines were turned into torrents or sheets of water. Though it lasted through four days, It W...

A SUBMERCED CITY. -+ It has happlened many times in the history of the world that cities have fallen into decai~, and finally disap peared si entirely that their exist ence has not been suspected by the ordinary traveller. Nineveh, Babylon and Carthage are the most not?ble instances of destruction due to war, pestilence, andll famine, SometHimes Nature lends a hand as int the following strange case : T'I'he city authorities of Itovigno, on the peninsula of Istria. in the Adriatic Sea, discovered ita little south of the pieninsula "the ruins of aI large town at the bottom of the sea. It had been observed for some years that lisherInen's nets were sometimes entangled - in what up plared to be masses of masonry, of which fragmnents were brought up frout the sea-bed. A diver declared that he had seen walls and streets below the water. The city authorities decided to in vestigate. l'hey sent down a diver, who at the depth of 851t. found himself surrounded at tihe bottom of the sea Iby ru...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) THE SKIPPER'S WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 21 November 1902

(ALL Msi MIaunRS,) 1k THE 8KIPPER'S WIFE, BY FRANK T. BULLEN. Stories of the Sea have in my humble a opinion been quite unfairly dealt with c by the majority of their narrators. Told a for the benefit of non-seafaring folk by writers, who, however great their literary gifts, have had merely a no ding acquaintance with the everyday doings on board ship, they generally lack proportion and fail to convey to t shore folk an intimate sense of the sea atmosphere. Especially has this been so with books for young people, as was no doubt to be expected. So much has this been the case that sailors generally despise sea-stories, finding them utterly unlike anything they have ever experienced themselves. Of late years there have been some notable exceptions among sea story writers, most of thenm I happily still living and doing splendid service. One cunning handt is still, that of James Runriman, whose yarns are salt as the ocean and have most- truly held the mirrorup tonature in a manner unexc...

THE LOSS OF A LOVER. I ENA was ead at heart-yet not utterly ad . Vincenutiordon was outside, where the lab. urnums hung the yellow gold of their blos soms. And with him,side by side with him, was little May-the little May whom Lena had taken compassion upon and cher ished as a sister these four years. Four years ago things had been very diff erent with Lena. She was then three and twenty, and beau tiful-at least, Vincent had told her she was beautiful, time after time. And really she had felt when she was with him that, if not beautiful, she was at any rate capable of in spiring affection-his affection. Shie would not have minded if any one had told her she was not beautiful-so long an she and Vin. cenoot continued to love each other. There had never been any very definite interchange of vows between them. No, she could not charge him with that.

ANOTHER DROWNING ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 21 November 1902

ANOTHER DROWNING ACCIDENT. Last Saturday afternoon, about 3 o'clock, two young lads, named Arthur Waller, aged 11, and Albert Schnider, aged 9, went into the River Yarra, Warrandyte, opposite Mr Kruse's premises, where the lad Waller was staying, to bathe. Near the shallow ground a sloping hole goes to the depth of 10ft., and the lad Waller got into this hole. Schnider went away for assistance, but some minutes elapsed before that was obtained, and half an hour before the body was recovered by Constable Parsons, who tried every effort to restore animation in vain. The deceased lad's father, William Waller, was for a considerable time working in the Victory mine, but recently at the Golden Dyke, Wondong. He is a widower, and the lad his only child. No formal inquiry has taken place, Captain Selby, J.P., giving the neccess- ary order for burial.
