Empire Builders. No. 2.—SIR GEORGE GREY. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899

Empira Builders. No. 2.-SIR GEORGE GREY. III. (")N reaching England, (¡rey was received with every mark of distinction hy learned and scien- tific societies, and the University of Oxford conferred upon him the decree of LL.D. His labours in N.Z. have been thus summed up : "He came, at the crisis of a civil war, to a colony bankrupt in fin nance. He left the colony in pro- found peace, solvent and flourishing, with native tribes, which had been subdued b}r his skill and arms and had become willing and loyal ser- vants of the Crown." Whilst in England on this visit he was appointed Governor of Cape Colony, and for the next seven years (1854-61) he lived there. Person- ally, he wished to return to New Zealand ; but he obeyed the call of duty, and went to the Cape, where his services were so much required. Things at the Cape were in a state of unrest. Native wars were almost constantly breaking out, and there seemed small prospect of peace amongst the various conflicting ele- ments of S...

PRESS BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899

PRESS BAZAAR. J ^ H F Grand Fair and Press Bazaar ^ in aid of the Queen Victoria Humes Will he over by the time this is in print, and, as far as I can judge to-day, it will have resulted in a magnificent success from every point of view. It was opened hy His Excellency Lord Beauchamp on August 10, in the presence of quite 8000 people, who paid for admission about £300. The bleak, dreary Exhibition Building was transformed into an old English town, with (plaint little timbered houses, tenanted hy pretty women and stocked with dainty goods. A hit incongruous some of it. 1900 jostled the Middle Ages, and Caxton's house saw the latest Paris modes peeping in at its latticed windows. A lady of Dr. Johnson's time super- intended a phonograph, and a vivandière of the old guard sold tickets in a raffle for a talking doll. Women in mob caps and pink frocks dispersed refreshments at the sign of the Mermaid, and a palmist and a sewing machine had opposite rooms in the Old Cock Tavern. Mis. Frew...

The letter bore the address of a marine suburb, and on my first leisure day I found the place. A little wooden cottage, perched on the top of a crag that overlooked the harbour. A narrow patch cf vegetation in front of the verandah rail, and a sheer drop of thirty feet, where the deep water lapped the base of the rock. The house was reached hy a lane off a narrow street ; a light, close fence,, with a postern-like gate, flanked hy an iron bell-pull, that answered the jerk I gave it by a deep clang in the house beyond. Presently a half-coloured man, in semi-European dress, opened the gate, and...

ASSUMING that since last month's article appeared, our builders have completed the body of the house and its roof, it now remains to add the fireplaces and stairs. The most suitable position for the fireplaces will be the centre of the hack wall of each room Thus one fire will be opposite the door in one lower room and opposite the window in the other.

FOREIGN NEWS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899

IN AFGHANISTAN the other day the General of the Army and three of his officers were convicted of the incredibly mean offence of robbing their own soldiers. For this offence they were publicly shot in the chief street of Cabul. This is a typically Asiatic method of dealing with wrong-doers. The incident gives some idea of the want of honour in high places which exists in a coun- try which, on account of its proxi- mity to India, is of much interest to members of the British Empire. JAPAN, adopting a European precedent, has just passed a law making the vaccination of children compulsory. RUSSIA has commenced to culti- vate the tea-plant. A beginning has been made on the Black Sea coast of Transcaucasia. Several hundreds of Chinese emigrants were secured to prepare the soil and com- mence the plantation. IT IS SUD that Sir. Henry M. Stanley, G.C.B., the great African traveller, has expressed the opinion that Major Marchand ranks next to Livingstone and Speke as an African explorer. His...

This building was erected at a cost of £300 000 to commemorate the Jubilee (1887) of Queen's "Victoria's Reign, by thc tot illation of a complete collection of the natural products of the British Colonies and India, and by taking all desirable means to stimulate the trade of the Empire THE PACIFIC British Cable is likely to very spon become an ac- complished fact.
