DOROTHY DOT DOLLS DRESSMAKER [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

! ]\0$pTHY ? ll 11 \ohiis f%#¡j MT DEAR GIRLS. I should not like everybody to know, though I don't mind telling you, that though I am (mite grown up, in fact more than twenty years old, I am still dreadfully fond of dolls. Whenever any little people come to our house. I dis- appear from among the "grown-ups." I pretend I am going to amuse the little ones, but 1 really go to play with them and their dolls, because I like it. If my grown-up brothers and sisters knew, they might call me Baby, and laugh at me. But I just love nursing Dolly, and enjoy dressing and undressing lier as much as any one of you. I think our editor must have found out my fondness for dolls, because he said I might have just one column each month, i'i which to talk to you about them, ii you liked. So be sure to tell him if you like the doll column when you write. I suppose there never was a little girl who didn't own a doll. Some of us have had a great many, and quite agree w ith the old saying, " the more the m...

FOREIGN STAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

FOREIGN STAMPS. Iwonder if many of my readers take an interest in the collection of foreign stamps ? When I was a boy I used to pride myself very much on my collection, and I still keep nry foreign stamps, and feel pleased when 1 can add a new-and especially an old or rare specimen to my hoard. It is a very interesting " craze," as some people call it. Many of the foreign and colonial stamps are beautiful specimens of the engraver's and the printer's arts. What can be more interesting than the collection of these artistic gems ? Then, the gathering together of stamps from all parts of the world must lead us to take an interest in Geography ; we begin to wonder whence some of them come, and we instinctively go and get our atlases and search for the country, thus impressing firmly on our minds the position of many new places. Let "Interrogo" know when you write to him whether you take an interest in this hobby, and if I thus find that a fair pro- portion of my subscribers are interest...

SCIENCE. The Sea-Urchin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

SCIENCE. The Sea-Urchin. By "GOSSIP." The feet of a Sea-Urchin are the most peculiar feet you ever saw. A fly's foot is marvellous, and a water-beetle's foot is amazing ; and a horse's foot is full of history ; but a Sea-Urchin's foot is more wonderful than any of them ! In fact, it isn't a foot at all ; it's a teeney-weeney sucker. The Sea-Urchin does not walk as we walk, but it pulls itself along. The tiny suckers take hold of the sea-weeds, or stones, or glass, and the Sea-Urchin pulls itself along in the direction in which it wants to go. You look at the picture of the Echinus (Sea-Urchin) in our last issue and you will see that the shell is divided with regular sections, and that large knobs run down the centre of each section. Now look at this picture of a small piece of shell ! PIECE OF A SBÂ-TJECHIN'S SHELL. Now think of this : if that shell were solid all round, then the the Urchin could never grow any larger, could he ? A crab's shell is solid, and when a crab wants to gro...

The Australian Eleven. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

Tho Austra- lian Eleven. The present Austra- lian team is doing well in England. Their record for the first 12 matches stands : won 7 ; lost 1 ; drawn 4. The previous Aus- tralian Eleven (1896) gave a less satisfactory result of their first 12 matches, viz., won 6 ; lost 2 ; drawn 4. In the first test match Aus- tralia made 252 and 230 (innings declared closed at 8th wicket), whilst England made 193, and 155 for 7 wickets. We won the second test match by 10 wickets. The scores were, England 206 and 240 ; Australia 421 and 28 for no wickets. In this match Victor Trumper dis tinguished himself by making 135 not out. Bathurst has now been connected wit li Sydney ( 1 2 1 miles) by a tele- phone line.

LORD BEAUCHAMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

LORI) BEAUCHAMP. L-TIS EXCELLENCY the Governor, in presenting the prizes gained by Technical College students last Monday night, gave a very interesting address. We have not space to print it in full, but the concluding portion is specially thoughtful and informing. Lord Beau- champ said "The question, then, which is before us really with regard to technical educa- tion is a very old one, which has been before the world for a very long time The question is, Who is going to survive the great battle for existence ? In the old days the victory was always on the side of the great battalions, was on the side of the strong, and on the side of the rich. The battles were very sanguinary, and there was a large number of victims. You cannot fight any battles without victims or without some one suffering. But the battles in the future will be different, in this way-they will not go to the strong or to the rich, but they will go to the wise ; and instead of the weak being the victims, those who...

Federation. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

Federation. Tuesday June 20, was a red-letter day in Australian history. It was the day on which the people of New South Wales-the best and wealthiest of the Ai strahan Colonies-had to decide whether they were willing to accept the Federation Bill framed by the Ade- laide Convention last year, and amended by the Melbourne Con- ference of Premiers this year. A very large vote was recorded all ovt-r the colony, and a majority of 23,981 electors de ided that Fede- ration under the Bill was desirable. Enormous crowds thronged the Sydney streets on Tuesda evening to get the earliest news of the voting, and as the returns came in there was loud and long continued cheering. Up to the time of going to press the results of voting are : YES. No. Sydney . 11,025 . 10.546 Suburbs .. 23,550 .. 24,346 Country . 70,970 ... 40.672 Total ... 1(15,545 S 1.564 Majority for the Bill . 23,981.

MIDWINTER HOLIDAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

MIDWINTER HOLIDAYS. T^OUBTLESS nearly all oui readers are now rejoicing that the half-year's work is done and the holidays have come. Holidays were originally holy days-religious fes- tivals devoted to the commemora- tion of some important event in Church history. Now the word has come to m (vin a period of rest from ordinary work. Just as the steam si lips and railway engines which carry our passengers and produce from place to place have times of complete rest when they are laid aside to undergo an overhaul, so that wonderfully complex mechanism which forms the human brain re- quires a periodical rest in which to recoup its wasted energy and pre- pare for a new lease of work. Hence in modern school-life we have regu- lar Christmas, Easter, and Mid- winter vacations. We need hardly recommend Aus- tralian girls and boys to lay aside all school work during the holidays, to get out into the fresh air, and engage in such healthful recreation as will make their bodies-the temples of the...

Rabbit Catching. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

Rabbit Catching. The N.S.W. Depart- ment of Agriculture is urging country people to take more interest in catching and exporting rabbits. In Victoria and New Zealand 5,000 men are thus em- ployed, whilst in N.S.W. only 400 are at work. Yet 20,000 rabbits, worth £2,000, have been exported within the past few weeks, thus saving pasture for 4,000 sheep.

DREAMING. An Original Fairy Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

DREAMING. An Original Fairy Story. (By MARCY HAIN, age 10, Macquarie Street, Sydney.) " (^)H, dear," sighed a little girl, as she sat by the fire read- ing. "I do wish I had not got this horrid cold ; the boys are out . enjoying themselves at the picnic, and I have to stay at home, just because I have a cold." Just then she was startled to see a pretty little fairy run up to her. She was dressed in pure white, with a small silver wand in her hand, and a little silver star on her head. " Would you like me to tell you a story, or take you up into the clouds ? " said the fairy. " Oh ! I would love to go up into the clouds, but mother will not let me go out," said the little girl. " Oh ! come along with me. I will take care of you." So saying, she took the little girl, and they were soon up in the clouds. " Oh, it is funny up here," said the little girl. " Would you like to see it rain?" said the fairy. " No, thank you ; my brothers are out, and they would get wet." " I must take you do...

A Land without Animals. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

Á Land without Animals. Japan is a land without the domestic animals. It is this lack which strikes the stranger so forcibly in looking upon Japanese landscapes. There are no cows -the Japanese neither drink milk nor eat meat. There are but few horses, and these are imported mainly for the use of the foreigners. The freight cars in the streets are pulled and pushed by coolies, and the pleasure carriages are drawn by men. There are but few dogs, and these are neither used as watch dogs, beasts of burden, nor in hunting, except by foreigners. There are no pigs. There are no goats, or mules, or donkeys. Wild animals there are, however, and in particular bears of enormous size. War, of course, has acquainted the Japanese with the use of animals. The army has cavalry horses and others to drag the field-guns. The Empress, also, in obvious imitation of European Royalties, is an expert horse- woman, and saddle horses are kept for her use.

Gordon College. The Sirdar, who surely m a y be ranked amongst British Em- pire-Builders, has now commenced to build Gordon College at Khartoum. It is a noble step to commence the civilization of the great country he has conquered by educating the young people in a properly equipped and up-to-date College.
