A NEW CHUM'S FIRST MOUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 8 November 1890

A NEW CHUM'S FIRST MOUNT. In a series of humorous sketches our artist has depicted an experience whioh almost every seeker of 'colonial- experience' has gone through in his early, station life. The scene is laid in a stockyard, the actors being our new chum friend and his charger. The. former has been told off to saddle his nag, and has driven him into the corner of theyard, where he essays, to put the bridle on him. The horse, an old station hand, stands as quiet as a sheep while the new churn gingerly approaches, his saddle on one arm and his bridle slung over the other. ? ' He looks quiet enough,' he thinks, and his courage rises. De positing his saddle on the ground, he advances with one hand extended; 'Whoa there,' old fellow.' Bat the old fellow won't. He in stinctively divines the new chum, and gives him a taste of his quality by the simple process of lowering . h's head and raising his heels. . It is simply play, but - horse play at that, and the tyro kisses mother earth wit...

HAZARD; THE STORY OF A HORSE. 'Look hero, dear boy, something's gone wrong, and you'd hotter make a olean breast of it. I don't suppose for an instant that you have come all this way for a few hours just for a look at the littlo horse, though, upon my word, I think e's worth it.

FROM LONDON TO AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1890

FROM LONDON TO AUSTRALIA. Thore are few voyages more delightful- or impressive and instructive, and to the student; the artist and intelligent traveller, so fraught with philosophical reflection and auggestivenesn, than a run from London to Australia by one of tho P. and O. Co. 's steamers. The trip might be considered in various aspects. From' d sani tary point (if view nothing could .possibly do more to recruit the exhausted frame. 'For mere purposes of pleasure it presents all tho concomitants that render variety charming. The track lies over the most historically inter esting portion of the world,' blending an it does the curious traditions of the ancients, remind ing one of the biblical records at every turn, of . the chivalry of the 1norii2ev.il period and bringing one face to face, not only with western, as contradistinguished from oriental, civilisations-hut with the most practioal exempli fication of later days poaheadism as shown at the Antipodes. .

A CAMEL TEAM IN THE FAR NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1890

A CAMEL TEAM IN THE FAR NORTH. The camel has been aptly named the ship of the desert. It possesses qualities whioh render it superior to. any beast of burden. Strong, fatigue enduring, patient and docile, and con tent with tho smallest quantity of the coarsest provender, this animal is ono of the most valu able gifts of Providence to mnn in. those ynst nn'd sterile regions where the intense heat destroys all vegetation and renders the con centration of population almost an impossi bility. In outward appearance ,' he is. un gainly and directly opposed to every ac cepted theory of beauty. . NovorthelesB, there' is no animal better fitted for the. situation in which, it is placed, or one whose organisa tion-presents in a more remarkable degree the creative wisdom of nature.

ON THE BEACH AT LORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1890

ON THE BEACH AT LORNE. That every one with a soul and means above ooppers should visit a seaside watering place during the summer, if it were only for the show of the thing, goes without laying. Queensoliff will do at a pinch ; Sorrento is slightly a out higher, arid Sohhapper Point and Portsea, not to mention Cowes and Flinders Island,' have a slight aoupcon, of the aristocratic, but the paterfamilias and bin belongings who aspire to the very best sooiety the colony can afford must go to Lome. The Hebrew element may predominate, and the enterprising 'cockatoo' from .the Western district may be strongly en evidence, but that matters not. They are only padding. The world and his wife style of people cannot possibly suffer, and may be largely enhanced by the contrast. Therefore Melbourne gentility feels every justifi cation for seleot ing Lome, as Tiberius did Oaprera, for a genuine outing, and freedom from' the dust and turmoil, the anxieties and labors of the great metropolis. It is...

TILED ROCK NEAR AVENEL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1890

TILED ROOK *EAR AVENEEi. . Contemporaneous exporienoe is wholly at fault in relation to these phenomenal deposits of huge masses of rook formations whose source and present situ are equally mysterious. Thero seems no particular reason for supposing that they descended from space. Aerolites of enormous dimensions are not uncommon in various parts of the world, but these in almost every instance are found to have ferruginous matter entering largoly into their composition, whereas tho class' of rooks to whioh we refer are wholly different. Another theory is that they were originally torn away by some ter rific conyulsion of nature from the parent rook, caught in ' either a sea of lava or deluge of soft mud, and borne along it* turbid . breast until tho force of the current became weakened and 'the mass settled down, while the alluvium swept outward, having the rock rugged and bare,' not infrequently in the midst of a. vast plain, with not another stone within miles o'f^it. The Tiled Bo...

NATIVE HOUSE IN ELOPURA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1890

NATIVE HOUSE IN ELOPURA. The forest 'primeval, 'with' the waving palms and the hemlocks, as Longfellow writes when describing the sylvan loveliness of Aroadia, seem the necessary acootnpaniment of the primitive races of mankind. Nature has done muoh for the savage representative of man made in the likeness of his Creator, hut his dwelling, his habiliments, his appearance and domestic surroundings are not calculated to inspire feelings of affection and respect. As indicating a low, very low, degree of intelligence, . the native Papuan particularly is usually found displaying all the majesty of nature without ?any of the oonoomitants of art. 'Being the donizen of a particularly sultry olimate . he wants little here below, nor wants that little long in the matter of sartorial details. His food would be scorned by an Irish pig, and though his manners are represented by ohris tian missionaries in a rose colored aspaot, prac tioal good sense leads us to the conclusion that this man and a ...
