EXERCISE BOOKS FOR SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
EXERCISE BOOKS FOR SCHOOLS. DUMBBELL AND CLUB EXERCISES. ' ' A sound body " is as important as a " sound mind," and drills and exercises are as much a part of the education of to-day as " a-b, ab" was a hundred years ago. " Mr. Frank Smith, Q.M.S., Drill Instructor to our Public Schools, has just issued four useful handbooks that deal with his special method of instruc tion. They are so simple that they may be used by school instructors or in pri SOME CURIOUS SPIDERS.-In the for ests of Java there are spiders whose webs are so strong that a knife is required to cut them. A Texas spider weaves a balloon 4ft. long and 2ft. wide, which she uses as a means of locomotion for herself and family.

RS2ÏES UUILÛER _ - How to Mïike a Doll's House. ( Continued ). TUT AVING practically finished the walls of the house, we will for the moment take a glance at the interior. On looking at fig. 1, a thick black line will be seen midway between the top and bottom of the mouth of both A and B. This represents position of a central partition to divide each box into upper and lower divisions, making four rooms each 14in. long, ÍHin. wide, giving these dimensions of floor space for each cham ber, the w alls of rooms being 9in. high. The central partitions or floors may be made of ^in. board, cut same dimensions and shape as the thick end boards, as the "floors" are exactly the same in shape FIGURE 1. and area.

Out-door Sports. Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
Outdoor Sports. [BY "OBSERVER."] [The Sports Editor will be glad to receive notes of school sports for inclusion in this column.] Cricket. It is to be regretted that the third test match, Austra lia v. England, luid no finality, as the game w as abandoned at a very interesting stage. When stumps were drawn on the second day England had decidedly the best of the game, the scores being: Australia. 172 and 220; England, 224 and no wickets for 19. However, during the night rain fell heavily, and after inspecting the wicket on Saturday morning the umpires declared the match drawn. This match was remarkable for the failure of two famous batsmen, Noble and Gregory, who each made a " pair of spectacles.'* Hill. Darling, Gregory/and Noble had an average of seven inns apiece in the two innings. In the second innings of Australia, Hearne did the "hat trick,'' dismissing Hill. Gregory, and Noble with consecu tive balls. Hearne did not represent England in the second test match. Hugh Trumble had...
Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
Football. P. G. Ward, although almost unknown in New South Wales a few months back, is at the present time one of the most popular, and certainly the most famous footballer in Australia. He arrived here from New Zealand about five months ago, and when the football season com menced decided to throw in his lot with the .Marrickville Football Club. In his first match of the season he played a great game, his marking, kicking, tack ling and general all-round play being much admired. In every match he has taken part in the Marrickville represent ative has shone out prominently. During the last two months he has represented New South Wales six times and Aus tralia twice, and also played in the Metropolitan v. Country match. He is a very cool player, seldom fails to get in his pass, and his line-kicking is of great service to his side He plays the proper game from beginning to end, and rarely makes a mistake. He is always in splendid form, and is perhaps the most consistent player in Aust...
DOROTHY DOT DOLLS DRESSMAKER THE LITTLE SEAMSTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
' oi/Ls o« THE LITTLE SEAMSTRESS. Miss Dorothy Dot, in her little red chair, Put her thimble on with a matronly air, And said, " From this piece of cloth I guess, I'll make baby brother a lovely dress." She pulled her needle in and out, And over and under and round about, And through and through, till the snowy lawn Was bunched and crumpled and gathered and drawn. She sewed and sewed to the end of her thread : Then, holding her work to view, she said . This isn't a baby-dress, after all; lt's a bonnet foi' my littlest doll !" -St. Nicholas.

A LEGEND OF SOLOMON'S TEMPLE T [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
A MONO the craftsmen employed in the building of Solomon's temple, a dispute arose as to who played the most important part in its construction. And the settlement of the matter was referred to the wise king himself. On the appointed day he made the tour of the place, and spoke with the chief workmen in turn. " But for me," said the architect, "the world would never be beautified with this wonderful creation. With an iron stylus I trace on the plastic clay or smooth waxen tablets, the exact contour and dimension of evTery detail. I hand these to the master-builder, whose ser vants cut and place the stones of the foundations, raise the columns and lay the beams, girding them with iron and brass, that they may support the lofty roof and bind the massive walls. Surely he who imagines the whole may be con sidered the first factor in its completion." " Nay," said the mason. " It is I who carve this man's dream into reality, but for my chisel and mallet his wonderful creation would remain...
SCIENCE. The Sea-Urchin. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
SCIENCE. The Sea-Urchin. By "GOSSIP." 7"HEN I began to write about a v * Sea-Urchin, I thought I would tell you all about it in one chapter, or two at the most. I think this is the fourth chapter, and I will really finish this time, because I ought to tell yon about something else. But I used to keep Sea-Urchins in a glass aquarium, and I got very well acquainted with the family. I got to know them first in England, but when I met them on the coast of Africa, and in America, and in far off lands, I felt real friendly to them. You always feel like that. If a nfan lives amongst sheep in Australia, then when he goes to London he wants to see sheep. If he lives amongst cattle, then when he goes to Chicago, he wants to see the stock-yards. If you study Sea-Urchins in Australia, then, when you go to Europe, you'll want to look at the Euro pean Sea-Urchins. I think that a Sea-Urchin's mouth .is as wonderful as its feet ! There's a great deal of character in mouths ! If you look at children...
