Kruger's Quarrel. Affairs in the Trans vaal, South Africa, appear to be reaching a crisis. TheUitland ers (that is, men of other nations British, French, etc.) still complain bitterly of the harsh treatment they receive at the hands of the Dutch men of the Republic.

Though these Uitland ers are heavily taxed, they have neither votes nor voice in the gov ernment of the country. A meeting to express sympathy with our kins men in their unfortunate position was held in Sydney last week.

CLASS V. 1. Sir Joseph Banks.-A distinguished naturalist, who accompanied Captain Cook in 1768 on his first voyage. He also visited Newfoundland and the New Hebrides for the purpose of science. He might be called the founder of Australia, for owing to his influence the British government decided to form a settlement under Governor Phillip. Dinuzulu. Proved a hard nut to crack for my competitors. He is the eldest son of the late Cetywayo, the King of Zu luland (South Africa), who was defeated by the English many years ago. Zululand, as you know, is now a province of the British Colony of Natal. Many of the native Zulus still regard Dinuzulu as their lawful king.

He has lately been released, and has returned to Natal, where we hope he may long live in peace. He isa bright, intelligent, and educated prince-a jolly, g...

A lady who recently returned from a Mediterranean trip says that as the ship was leaving the harbour of Athens a well dressed lady passenger came up to the captain, and pointing to the distant hills covered with snow, asked, "What is that white stuff on the hills, captain ? " "That is snow, madam," answered the captain. "Is it really ? " remarked the lady. "I thought so, but a gentleman just told me it was Greece."

CAPTAIN COOK'S LANDING PLACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 May 1899
(APTA IX COOK'S LANDING PLACE. NE of the most important events of the past month has been the dedica tion of Kurnell-Captain Cook's landing place at Botany Bay-as a park for the people oí Australia. The ceremony was performed hy Lieutenant Governor, Sir Frederick Darle}7, on 6th May. It was to have been performed on 28th April, tile L29th Anniversary of Captain Cook's landing, but the weather was unsuitable, so the function was postponed fora week. The accompanying map will give you a correct idea of the exact spot. It is a popular error amongst schoolboys to suppose that Cook landed on the north shore of the Bay. Every boy and girl who can get the opportunity should visit our " one poor spot of classic ground " at Botany Bay. At Kurnell, on the south shore, are to be seen an obelisk erected in 1870, when j Belmore was Governor, by the Hon. Thomas Holt, and inscribed with an p extract from Cook's diary ; and a brass plate attached to the rocks near the shore, in the time of Governor...
SCIENCE. The Sea-Urchin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 30 May 1899
SCIENCE. ^ The Sea-Urchin. By "GOSSIP." J X our last issue " A Lone Bush Lassie " suggested that there isn't much "science" about my talk. Well, she was quite right, because I'm only a " Gossip." I never pretend to teach people. The only object I have in view in writing, is to set people to thinking. The next time you go to the sea-shore and come across a sea-urchin, I want you to recognise it, and examine it, and see for yourself if my stories were true. Then, if you want more in formation on the subject, and want to study echinoderms, and hard words, you can easily find good books at any library, and go into the matter more fully. All I am doing is writing a few words, cheer fully, in a way that will set you to thinking, for, as Byron says : - " Wolds are things, and a small drop of ink, Falling like dew upon a thought, produces That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think." I told you in my last that I would explain why the spines come off the urchin so easily. I might tel...
