Bubbles His Book. A STORY FOR CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899
Bubbles His Book. j* A STORY FOR CHILDREN, By R. F. IRVINE. Illustrated by D. H. SOUTER. The Story that Daddy told the night the Flying Squirrel first appeared in the old Gum Tree. A T first the days passed like Dream Days, and Lulu and the Children of the Wind played many games, and were very happy together. But there came a day when Lulu began to think of the Home in the Valley, and of her Mother and Daddy and Auntie, who would miss their little girl. Her playmates could not guess what made her eves fill with tears at times, for they never wept in the Island of Palms, and none there knew what it was to be sad. So Lulu, when sad thoughts filled her heart, would go alone, save for the Clay Pij)e and the Old Broken Teacup, to the Rock of Seeing, and there she would sit and blow bubbles, and dream of the dear old Home. She had asked the Wind to take her back, but he shook his head, and said that none who came to the Island could ever leave it, saving only himself, to whom it was given...
How to Make a Doll's House. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899
How to Make a Doll's House. Before proceeding to the more practi- cal part of our subject, the writer wishes to point out that while he believes that a doll's house should be made to resemble a real house as nearly as possible, both externally and internally, yet this is not practicable in every respect. The small- ness of Dolly's dwelling prevents her owner and friends being able to enter therein by ordinary methods, so it is usual to make the front wall of a doll's cottage entirely removable in order to view tlie inside, and arrange the interior fittings. As the wall removed carries the window, the glass is likely to be broken, besides the inconvenience of having to take the house to pieces, as it were, whenever we wish to get at the rooms. The plan I am giving below shows a better mode of construction ; admits of more or less .ornamentation according to taste, and besides being easy to make, there is the great advan- tage that nothing of the structure needs to be separated, and w...
BROTHER BOB— BUILDER INTRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899
INTRODUCTION. ' T N order to further extend the interest and usefulness of the CHILDREN'S NEWSPAPER, the Editor has decided to devote a part of the paper 's space for "WORKSHOP" purposes. It is in- tended to give instruction that will enable boys of a mechanical bent to em- ploy themselves in such a manner as to combine pleasure and instruction ; familiarize themselves with the use of tools generally, and, at the same time, produce articles of utility or ornament for their homes. In the directions to be given in the " Workshop" columns, due regard will be paid to the probability of the workers possessing but few tools, and wherever possible the use of such materials as can be easily and cheaply procured will be kept in view. We will also forward at lowest prices such tools as will be required to carry out the ideas suggested in the papers. The scope and number of different sub- jects treated upon, will depend to some extent upon the amount of interest our readers display regarding t...
Colonies of the Century. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899
Colonies of the Century. The ex-Premier of Natal (Africa) has been lecturing in Lon- don on the Colonies of the Century. He pointed out amongst other things (1). that their area to-day is six times as great as it was in 1800, and their population :')}, times as great; ('2). that their cost to England is re- markably small, and the older the colonies become the smaller does their cost to England become.
Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899
Football. Tlie English footballers have so far played three matches, and on each occasion were successful. There were 30,000 people present to witness the match Kngland v. New South Wales, and it was un- doubtedly the best games I have seen played in this colony. The N.S. Welsh- men showed remarkable form, and the con- test was exciting from start to finish. It was mainly through the stubborn defence of the English back division that defeat was averted. As it was, the English team won by the narrow margin of four points to three. On June 20 they defeated the Metropolitan team by eight to five. The most important match of the tour England v. Australia, took place on Saturday, and resulted in a win for Australia by 13 points to 3. There was a record attendance. Next month I will give you some interesting information in regard to the personnel of the English team. Mr. (fvvyime-Nicholls (three quarter back) is considered to be the best player in that position England has ever seen. In t...
Sir Alfred Roberts. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

It is now proposed to perpetuate his memory by naming after him the operating theatre at Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney ; also by providing a " Roberts Clini- cal Medal " for the most successful graduate in medicine each year at Sydney University, and a badge fco the most successful nurse at Prince Alfred Hospital.
Mt. Kosciusko Observatory. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899
Mt. Kosciusko Observatory. On the top of Mt. Kosciusko an obser- vatory has been estab- lished by Mr. Wragge, the Queensland Government " wea ther prophet." A few months ago I journeyed up to the observatory to see it, and I hope some day to tell the story of my journey to readers of the CHILDREN'S NEWS- PAPER. The two young observers, Messrs. Newth and Burcher, are now snowed in for winter. We will hear very little of them till spring comes and the snow dis- appears, for they are quite isolated from the outside world during winter. The other day Mr. Wragge received the following note from Mr. Newth:-'I was most unex- pectedly visited by two stockmen today, so snatch this opportunity to send a hasty line. Have been busy. Burcher and T, all last week, fitting up the hut, and al] is finished now. I bought what timber I could, and we built ourselves a hatchway, a kind of wooden chim- ney and trap-door, altered the fire- place, and built a store-room ; also put up more shelves, made ano...
The Perthshire. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899
The Perthshire. One of the strangest among the many strange tales of the sea is that of the Perthshire. This large steamship (5500 tons) is engaged in carrying frozen meat and other produce from Australasia to England. She left Sydney on April 26, eu route for the Bluff (K.Z.) to complete her loading. On the evening of the 28th, when 400 miles from Sydney, her propeller-shaft broke, and for 50 days she was tossed about on the stormy waves of the Pacific. She was found in the vicinity of Norfolk Island by the steamer Talune on June 13, and was towed back to Sydney, arriving at day- light on the 19th instant. The strange part of her experience is that of drifting across the trade routes, Sydney to Wellington and Sydney to Auckland, without sighting any vessel that could give1 help, and the fact that, though about a dozen search-vessels were out looking for her, she was not discovered till so late a date. She was seen by the tiny schooner Whangaroa on May L3, by the barque Northern Chi...

Electric Mono-rail Railway. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899
Electric Mono rail Railway. A committee of mer- chants in Manchester and Liverpool (Eng- land) proposes to spend £1,500,000 in connecting the two cities by an Electric Mono-rail Railway. As the name shows, the carriages will run on a single rail, and it is expected that they will travel between the two cities (32 miles) in 20 minutes ; that is, more than 90 miles an hour. The inven- tion is the work of a Belgian En- gineer named Behr.
FANCY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899
FANCY WORK. By MRS. ERNEST FAVENC. Vor see, little ones, we have thought of another subject that may interest you. And if it does, we mean each month to give an illustration and description of some work that will not too greatly tax your patience, nor take up too much of youi- spare time. I know that lessons do not leave many idle moments at your disposal, but perhaps the pleasure of working these designs and making them up as pre-' -cuts for friends will compensate you. This month our design is for a servi- ette ring, worked in f ross stitch ; it is so simple ; and imagine what a delight it will be to provide each one, -or if you arc laze folks, one favoured person at your t able wit li a serviette ring marked with her own initials, and all your own work. To begin with, you need some canvas, a small quantity of single berlin wool, (or if you are ambitious, silk), and a scrap of sateen to linc the ring. Look care- fully at the design, and you will see there is a small pattern at the...
