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...

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...
