SLATIN PASHA'S ACCOUNT OF THE DEATH OF GORDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

SLATIN PASHA'S ACCOUNT OF THE DEATH OF GORDON. It was now Sunday, the 25th of January-a day I shall never forget as long as I live. That evening, when it was dark, the Mahdi and his Khalifas crossed over in a boat to where their warriors were all collected ready for the fight. It was known during the day that Khartum would be attacked the next morning, and the Mahdi had now gone to brace up his followers for the fray by preaching to them the glories of Jehad, and urging them to fight till death. Pray Heaven Gordon may have got the news, and made his preparations to resist in time ! On this occasion the Mahdi and his Khalifas had most strictly enjoined their followers to restrain their feelings, and receive the last injunctions in silence, instead of with the usual shouts and acclamations, which might awaken the suspicions of the exhausted and hungry garrison. His solemn harangue over, the Mahdi recrossed, and returned to the camp at dawn, leaving with the storming party only Khalifa...

A VISIT TO EDISON. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

A YISIT TO EDISON. We went to see Mr. Edison at his laboratory and works, East Orange ; we spent a most interesting day with the great inventor. He is devoted to his researches, and told Julia, who asked him when he began to strive after inven- tion, that at the age of ten he sat on hen's eggs, in order to incubate them, but he found it tedious. He said that he did not try to do possible, but impossible things. In one of his investigations he was always confronted by an imperfec- tion, and at last overcome it by creating another. I suggested that this showed that there were occasions when two blacks might make one white. He has a beautiful house and grounds near his works, but he spends most of his time at work-sometimes working all night. Indeed, he simply lives for his work. He eats to keep himself going he does not care what it is, so long as it gives sustenance. He likes smoking, but drinks nothing but milk and water. His wife and children came during the after- noon. Apart from...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

It was many years afterwards that some traces of the two ships were found on the Vanikoro Island, and a French man-o'-war was sent to investigate the matter. It was found that La Perouse had been wrecked, and many of his men had escaped to shore. They built a boat ¿ind sailed for home ; but they must all have been drowned, for their boat never «ame to shore. Captain Penticost, of the Lady St. Aubyn; when he visited the place a few weeks ago, found a number of old flint-lock muskets, pieces of old guns, .and shot of lead and iron. He also found a few French and Spanish silver coins, and one gold one. They were dated 1727 and 1728. He says they also found the workshop where the ill-fated French- men built their boat. It is a sad old story, and seems to come very close to us by these recent discoveries.

AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION. The Training Ship "Sobraon." I. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION. The Training Ship 44 Sobraon." So long as the flag of England floats frea on every sea, so long will the sons of the Carline wife give laws to the sons of men, but as soon as England's supre- macy on the sea comes to an end, woe, woe unto us all. Our navy is our strength, and every effort ought to be made to keep the navy up to a high standard. When uni versal disarmament comes, as it must come, then our ships can act as the world's policemen. But the question that comes ever to the front is, "How can we find sailors for the Queen's ships ? " The supply of seamen is growing smaller year by year, and the cry for ships grows yearly greater. The streets of our cities are swarming with idle boys, who would gladly serve the Queen, and become a blessing to the nation, instead of a curse, but no man calls them. They would be a power and a help to the flag of England, if we used them right, but we fail. And what is the flag of England ? " The dead dumb fog hath wrapped...

The Sudan. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

The Sudan. No part of Africa has attracted more attention of late than the Sudan, and more especially that part of it which has been the scene of a great military, and also of a great diplomatic, victory won by England. Yet there is probably no country in the world about which so little is known by the general public. The common idea is that the Sudan is a worthless desert, and that Fashoda, a ruined mud village, in the midst of this desert, is a place of little or no import- ance, and certainly not worth the calamity of a war between England and France. No idea could be more mis- taken. The Sudan possesses some of the most fertile tracts of Africa, and Fashoda is perhaps the key of the position. The term Sudan, in its widest sense, embraces a vast region, extending right across Africa from the Atlantic to the Red Sea and the mountains of Abyssinia, and southward from the Sahara to the Congo and the great lakes. The western and central portions of this region come for the most part ...

An Enthusiastic Frenchman. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

An Enthusiastic Frenchman. M. Lionel Decle is one of the greatest of African travellers. He visited almost every part of the Dark Continent, study- ing as he went the different methods of managing colonies and dependencies pur- sued by England, Germany, France, and Portugal. His impressions, published in his book, "Three Years in Savage Africa," make good reading for Englishmen. His open admiration of British colonial ad- ministration was, however, as gall and wormwood to his own countrymen. Since then he has written on the Fashoda episode. He does not mince matters. Fiance, he says, has no capacity for colonising. "In the Mediterranean, almost at her door, she owns Algeria and Tunis. She has occupied the former for half a century, and during those 50 years she has tried every mode of administration. Algeria has everything in her favour ; a grand climate, very similar to the climate of Cape Colony ; a most fertile land, industrious native races, none of the dis ases so fatal to man ...

A DANGEROUS ADVENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 30 January 1899

A DANGEROUS ADVENTURE. In the November number of The Wide World there is an interesting account of a pilgrimage to Mecca, made by an Englishman in the guise of a Mussulman. His get-up was correct enough, but his ignorance of Arabic was a source ot daily danger to him. Christians, it should be said, are not admitted into the Holy City, the metropolis of Islam, and this particular Christian only escaped by good luck and presence of mind. One evening, when the city seemed compara- tively quiet, he stole out into the streets, with the object of adding to his know- ledge, unhampered by the curiosity and suspicion of the swarms of pil- grims who, dur- ing the day, sur- rounded every place of in- terest. "Iwould have left my camera behind, for it protruded both unco mf ortably and suspici- ously under my irham, where I had secured it,, but I had no place where I could safely dis- pose it, and I dared not con- fide it to. the care of my met waf. As bad luck would have it-mektub ! it was wri...

Australian Stamina. A man was driving a station team with a heavy load from Ivan hoe, and he fell off his seat, and the wheels went over him.

When found he was taken to Mossgiel Hospital. He has since died.

An Indian Vendetta. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899

An Indian Vendetta. India is a large country, under British rule, that is more than half the size of Aus tralia. We have about four million inhabitants, while India has about three hundred million. The Indians are easily ruled, gene rally, but there are often dis agreeable or disastrous outbreaks amongst them. In 1897, during an epidemic of disease in Poonah, two of the British plague inspectors were shot by a fanatic named Damedar Chapedar, a Brahmin. Two brothers named Dravid were witnesses against Damedar at the trial, and he was hanged. A few days ago the two brothers were shot dead in the streets of Poonah by the brother of the man who was executed.
