Cycling. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
Cycling. Two brothers, Frank and' Alexander White, started from the Melbourne Post Office on tlie 5th inst, on a ride round the Continent of Australia. The dis tance to be covered is estimated at about 15,000 miles. The undertaking is a big one, and the brothers will doubtless undergo many privations before the journey is accomplished. The Melbourne Bicycle Club recently celebrated its 21st anniversary, and the event was marked in a very praiseworthy manner by a donation of £100 to chari ties. Tlie "scorcher"' is becoming a great nuisance in the suburbs, and it is time that the authorities took a hand in the matter. When he desires to test his speed, the scorcher invariably takes to. the footpath, to the danger of children going to and from school.

GEOGRAPHICAL FACTS & FANCIES [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
I>y GEO. COLLINGRIDGE, Member of the Council of the Roya, Geographical Society of Australasia. [Our readers will be pleased to learn that we have arranged with Mr. George Collingridge, to furnish a series of articles on interesting geogra phical subjects. " Geographical Facts and Fancies " will be continued in our next issue, and followed by " Some Ancient Opinions on the Shape of the Earth. "] OUR great-grandfathers had a very amusing way of describing coun tries, and the}" often changed the names of places. Sailors especially used to give curious and funny names to prominent landmarks and seaport towns they visited, and some of those names have been retained to the present day. As an instance, I may mention : Leg horn as a changed form of Livorno, in Italy ; the Lizard instead of Laizart, on the most southern point of England ; the Horn instead of Cape Hoorn, the once dreaded cape south of Magellan Strait ; Arthur Seat, near Edinburgh, a corrup tion of Ard-na-said. Arthur Seat,...
"MAROONED" A ROMANCE OF UNKNOWN AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
'^A ROOFED" ^ Pp/vyv-ICE. AV5TRALÍA^ have always been interested in the story of our early discoverers, but the material they left has been so scant that it is principally by deduction that anything like a clear idea of their doings can be obtained. They were probably men whom adverse winds had blown from their course-men who were more concerned in regaining known latitudes and safety than in piercing the veil of obscurity that wrapt the unexplored ends of the earth. But now and then they left their impressions on these barren shores, and a careful study of their remains enables the student to piece together something of their life and labours, and trace a knowledge of the Great South to a much earlier period than at first sight seems probable. A keel half buried in the sand, a length of rusty chain, or a letter rudely carved on a rock or tree bears silent witness to the presence of civilised man. A legend among the nomadic tribes that inhabit the central deserts, or the remains of ...
FOREIGN STAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
FOREIGN STAMPS. I am not at all surprised to find that I have struck a chord which finds sympa thetic response from many readers. Boys, after all, do not change from one genera tion to another as much as we often sup pose. The boys of to-day find delight in the same hobbies and amusements as their fathers. They have new interests, of course, but the old ones remain, and many correspondents inform me that stamp-collecting is not the least engross ing of their occupations. Let me say, first of all, that I had no intention when I wrote ni}7 last article of acting as an agent for the purchase of stamps, or as a medium for arranging exchanges, but as so man}'correspondents ask me to do so, I can only say that if time and circumstances permit, I shall do what several of my country corres pendents ask me, i.e., act for them in th pinchase or exchange of stamps. For the information of correspondents (H.K.M.. P.W., K.J.C.. etc.,) I may explain that the X.S. Wales Consump tives Hospital stamp...
TO THE WORK ONCE MORE! [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
TO THE WORK ONCE MORE ! OLIDA YS, like other good end sometime. So Midwinter vacation of 1899 is now a thing of the past, and most of our readers are now settling down to the long half-year's work. To many of you the new half year brings hope and joy. This is, in many cases, the time for promo tions. Some have taken a step upwards and got into a higher class; some - it may be-have gone up " on trial " (teachers used to do these things, and I suppose the prac tice still obtains), some have missed promotion this time, and are sadly contemplating another year's work in the old class, whilst some are only half-way through their present class and are looking forward to promo tion in the next half. To the fortunate boys and girls who have taken a step upwards, let us w ish success in their new sphere j Hard work and steady application in the new class, as in the old, will bring an adequate reward. Culti vate these virtues now, and you will surely lay the foundation of the quali ties which...
CHATTER PAGE EDITOR'S NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
EDITOR'S NOTE. Our correspondence has been growing every month until with the last number it ran into nearly a thousand letters. Some of them need answers -some of them don't-and a great many of them are good enough to print for the kind w ¡shes and interesting matter that is contained in them. We want to encourage our little friends to send us short, chattj letters on matters of general interest. Every month we will print a page of the best, and at the end of the year give a prize for the best letter sent in. The points on which it will gain a place will be composition and subject, and " Ree Bowler's" letter is a fair model of the kind of letter we want. "Bee" doesn't say how old she is. and as age will be taken into considera tion, it will be as well for all our correspondents to say how old they are. Any letters not for publication should be headed PRIVATE : Dear Mr. Editor,-Would you kindly let me know in what papers the names of the winners of the prizes tur rhe word competitio...

Mademoiselle Nuage et Mademoiselle Rayon-de-Soleil. 1. Ma fenêtre donne sur un jardin, où deux fillettes jouent presque toute la journée. J'appelle l'une d'elles Mlle. Nuage et l'autre Mlle. Rayon-de-soleil. La première aime beaucoup à faire la moue et à tordre ainsi ses lèvres-. L'autre a toujours un sourire sur ses jolies lèvres, ce qui leur donne une gentille courbe comme ceci -. Pouvez-vous devenir l'air qu'elles ont ? 2. L'autre jour elles allèrent à travers les bois et les prés pour cueillir des fleurs sauvages ; et quand elles revinrent, elles rapportèrent des bouquets de violettes et dc marguerites, et des fougères vertesqui avaient déjà commencé a sc flétrir. Elles étaient très heureuses, mais cependant très fatiguées, avec leurs souliers crottés et leurs tabliers salis et déchirés. Rayon-de-soleil donna quelques-unes de ses plus jolies fleurs à sa maman «,; quelques-unes à sa sour. Mlle. Nuage dil qu'elle avait eu trop de peine à les cueillir poui- en donner -elle les voul...

Empire Builders. No. 2.—SIR GEORGE GREY. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
Empire Builders. - ^-. No. 2. SIR GEORGE di REY. II. r^REY forwarded to the British Government an account of his observations of the customs and habits of the aborigines, as he had known them on his exploring journeys und at King George's Sound. So valuable and ably written was this considered that copies of it were sent by the Secre tary of State to all the Colonial Governors. Soon after reaching England he was offered the position of Governor of South Australia. Accepting this, he arrived in Ade laide in May, 1841. At that time lie was the youngest Governor ever appointed to a British colony, being only 28 years old. Younger men have, in more recent times, bren selected as Colonial Governors; but the conditions are easier now, for experienced men usually occupy the position of responsible ministers, and direct the colony's policy. Grey came to a province which was suffering from the effects of mis management, and he had, almost single-handed, to produce order out of chaos. The col...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. All letters to the Editor will bc replied to ax far as possible /aider this heading. WARATAH. - Your story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin is very well done for a girl of twelve. ïoutellthe story admir ably, and the dear old legend sounds as sweet as ever. But, Waratah, dear, your writing is not \\\) to the standard. You have crossed out so many words that the whole composition is ruined. Then you have written on both sides of the paper, a thing that should never be done for an editor. R.G. -The same idea has occurred to us and will be acted upon when space affords. N.M. F. -The editor will be glad to consider selected or original poetry, but in the former case the source must be acknowledged. H.B. -We fear 205 words will not win the prize ; at least it shouldn't. E.N. -Thanks for kind wishes. See JN.M F. J.W. -Jimmy, we are very glad to hear that you " live in a very rainy dis trict," also that you took a prize for writing ; also that you like our paper.

DOROTHY DOT DOLLS DRESSMAKER THE LITTLE SEAMSTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 27 July 1899
&nbsp; &nbsp; 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; It's a bonnet for my littlest doll !" -St. Nicholas.
