SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1890

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Mr. ? Oswald Brown, the hydraulic engineer for supplementing the oity water supply, has recommended the Hope Valley scheme, which is estimated to cost £417,000, and whioh will take three years to complete. On 13th Nov. a gale set in which reached its height about 3 o'clock next morning, when it raged with hurricane force. No damage of a serious nature was done in the city, but at Glenelg and Semaphore a great deal of damage took place. The gale was the severest ever experienced on the coast, and a large number of acoidents happened at Glenelg and Largs Bay. A telegram from Hoyleton states that the up train on Nov. 19, ran past the station for half a mile, being unable to pull up in consequence of tbe number of locusts on the rails, although the guard and driver had their brakes hard down. Reports generally from the country state that the peat is appearing in great number, and fears are entertained that their ravages will seriously affeot the crops. The banking stati...

ON THE OUTSIDE PILOT STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1890

ON THE OUTSIDE PILOT STATION. -Standing on Point Lonsdale and looking .sea ward, one can always discern, in fair weather or n foul, two smart looking schooners tacking backing and forwards in a seemingly aimless fashion: These are the pilot schoonois on'the outside station. Perhaps few people ever think, when they sit comfortably ensconced in their homes by the sea and listen to the whistling of the wind over the chimney or the thundering of the waves as they break in foam over the blaok rooks and churn up the sandy beach, that 'out there, in the very teeth of the gale, buf feted by the sea and smothered -in. spray, amid treaoherous ourrents off a dangerous coast, ride these gallant little vessels with their com plemont ot pilots always at their posts, ready to ' take a world of care and anxiety off tho captain of every incoming vessel and carefully navigate her through the boiling Rip up to a .safe anchorage in the Bay. - V Let us start with the pilot on his outward trip, and follo...

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1890

^ ^I^b^^P Variable weather has been experienced during the past month ; the temperature was extremely high on two days during the first week, the thermometer rising to 95 degrees in the shade, and afterwards falling to 40 degrees before two days had' expired. Since then the temperature has been moderate, and the progress of vegeta tion, : both on farms and in gardens, has been of a highly- satisfactory character. Crops of all kinds are good' nearly thaoughout the colony, the only exception being the Werribee Plains and ja few other places where the rains during October ''were deficient. Abundance of rain fell during the last two weeks, and. as ithe* temperature has again risen, though not up to the average of the month, a further impetus has been given to vegetation, though the heat and^ moia turo being favorable to fungoid growth, it is to be feared that the crops may be attacked with rust. Hay making is now in full swing, and is being rapidly proceeded with. The first hay was brou...

A GALLANT RESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1891

A GALLANT RESCUE. During a gale which prevailed along the' Warrnambool coast an exceptionally heavy 'sea was rolling into the bay. To venture on the sea while suoh a storm prevailed would be courting great danger, but the task was under taken by a fisherman named Robort Rentoul, of South Warrnambool. At about noon he launched a small dingy for tho purpose of proceeding to his fishing boat, anohorod in . the Bay above 100 yards from the jetty, which ho succeeded in reoohing. After completing bis work on board, shortly after 1 o'olook.he commenced the return journey in his dingy. He had only got a few yards away when a squall caught the little craft and carried it seaward. On getting away beyond the shelter of the breakwater it bcoame exposed to the full force of the wind and was tossed about by the huge seas, whioh threatened the boat with speedy destruction. ? Pilot Cloko had one of the Government whaleboats launched to go to the rescue, and called for volunteers. The fonr'mon chose...

A LETTER FROM HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1891

A LETTER FROM HOME. Only those who have lived in the bush for a lengthened period or who have been away in the back blocks, can appreciate the pleasure derived from the perusal, of a long expected letter from homo. The' wild younger son who has been a source of continuous trouble to his kindred in the old country, and has been forced to sober down and ' try his luok ' in Australia has ample time on his hands while engaged in the various duties whioh he has to perform, to pass - his former life in review and generally after a few years spent in the by no means unexciting life of pioneering and winning a pleasant home .from what before was dense forest or bleak wilderness, he does this with out a feeling 'of bitterness against the royster ing companions who have had so large a share in drawing him from tho path of strict rectitude. For his relations who have been cruel only to ' be kind in forcing him to seek a new home, his regard has boon increased by the distance which now lies bot...

A SNAKE IN THE GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1891

A SNAKE IN THE GRASS. .'In; every land on ' earth life in the country; has been looked upon as approaohing as nearly as possible to man's ideal existence. Poets have never tired of singing of rural pleasures, and has not the great master dramatist shown that, spite of exile, the dwellers in the forest of Ai'den lived a most enviable life. Australia is no exception to the rule, and an escape from the . dust and turmoil of Melbourne to some leafy glen in the country is always looked forward to with feelings of pleasurable anticipation. It is not to be gainsaid that a country life, just as it is possessed of many oharms, has some draw baoks, and to most people the presence of snakes acts as an alloy to rural pleasures. Unfor tunately, many of the reptiles of this country are venomous, and though, as a rule, they do not show fight, when a person is unlucky enough to get between them and the hole they are making for he has to be on the alert. Horses become quite unmanageable on seeing a ...

THE, OTIRA GORGE, WEST COAST ROAD, N.Z. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1891

THE. OTIRA GORGE, WEST. COAST . ; ROAD, N.Z. Remarkable as are many of the sights of New Zealand, the wonderland of the world,- it in generally conceded that the Otira Gorge stands first in the estimation of the traveller : and the reoolleotion of its grandeur and weirdness abides, when the impressions made by visits to less wonderful places have been effaced. The Otira Gorge lies in the road between Christohuroh and Hokitikft, and the scenery along the route never fails to excite the admiration of the visitor. Mr. Archibald Forbes speaking of this route says, ' Between the inhabited portions of the two provinces (Canterbury and Westland) there stretches a lofty range of rugged prooipitous mountains, with snow covered summits and glacier clad sides. Through the ravines of these there has been made a road, compared with which in dizzy boldness of engineering and road making, those of whioh I have had experience, whether in the Alps, the Carpathians, the Balkans, or the Himalayas, are...

TYPES OF RIDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1891

TYPES OF RIDERS. Riding ia so extensively practised .that it is not to be wondered at that there are so many types of riders. A person's calling can very often be determined by noting the animal he is mounted upon, though more frequently the nature of bis impedimenta gives the better glue. With the ladies riding exeroise is deservedly in high favor. The regular meets of tho Melbourne hounds are always graoed by the presence of equestriennes who are not deterred from being in at the death by the stiffest of country. The exhibitions of riding in the olasses for ladies' haoks and' hunters are 'leading features at our agricultural shows, and could the rules of raring be relaxed in her favor the fair owner of one of our successful cross country horses would be willing to brave the dangers of the steeplechase. Of quite another type is .the lady who goes ashopping on horseback. Mounted upon a quiet oob, who is not disconcerted by the yelping of the attendant poodle, she continues to spread...

The Miinro Ministry bavo beon, in a manner, on their trial during tbo month, and ho far have come through the ordeal satisfactorily. They have been accorded fair play at the hands of most hbn. mombers andtlie press, especially t ho Liberal section have given support and oncouragumenfc. A few of the members bt the lato Government, and especially Mr. Gillies, have shown a tendency to carp and sulk natural with mon spoiled by suc cess, and a protraoted tenure of office. The new Premier, has been the central point of the attack, bub as he holds a olean record, and is an adept at finanoial questions about which the -'average lion, member is in blissful ignorance, he has been enabled to hold his. own against all comers. Indeed it may bo said that his exposure^ of his predecessor's bungling and incompetency has been convincing, and his assertions un answerable.

CHRISTMAS BY THE SEA. OUR ILLUSTRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1891

- OB RI ST H AS B YjV..TP B S ^Av . .;;lf OUR irL*gj?-pii1to CHRISTMAS BY THE SEA, At this season of the year almost everyone is asking himself the question : 'Where shall I spend the holidays?' The number of amuse ments within the reaoh of everyone, and the host of pleasant localities where a ' few days may be moat en joy ably spent, renders the task of _'s*eleotion somewhat per plexing. People who have a .taste for mountaineering direct their attention to the neighborhood of Bright, where they can join forces with the local Alpine Club and get as muoh climbing as they desire. Others find thia the. most convenient time for paying visits to their relations, and the change from the usual routine of a town or a country life, as the case may be, is very pleasant. Paterfamilias, however, well knowing the benefit to be derived from a few days' ohange at the seaside, usually contrives to enable his family to spend their Christmas by the sea. There the children find never failing occupatio...
