THE IDEAL OF A BRITISH ARMY. THE AUTHOR OF "GREATER BRITAIN." IN THE "FORTNIGHTLY REVIEW." [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

a THE IDEAL OF A BRITLISH ARMY. STu AurTon or0 " GOEATE BoITAIr," or THa "FOT renI aTLY RvrrEW." My Ideal of the organisatlon of British ma ilitary power would be based on the main d prlncipl'e of having two grand divisions, which may be called separate armies or not, as the reader pleases. They would at any rate be separated in time of peace by space, r by different terms of recruiting,' and by I differences of general organisation; for the Aelatio army would have large bate talions composed of men enlisted for ten or twelve years, with a proportion of old soldiers. But in some respects the armies would not be distinct, for there would be full facilities for transfer and exchange among officers, and even to a limited extent among non-commissioned officers and men. Aden would, of couree, be taken charge of by the Asiatic army, and the Oape so long as British troops paid otherwise than by the colonists must be kept there. In fact this army should garrison all the distant fortresses a...

A SMART BIT OF SEAMANSHIP. (ST. JAMES'S GAZETTE) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

A SMART BIT OF SEAMANSHIP. (ST. JAsEs'S GAZBTTE) It is often said that seanma seltinwill soon beta lost art; and thatt'stntbya vst'val officers no longer need to 1ecome proficlents in its practice. Therefore the following story of a breakdown that nearly ended in a catastrophe Is all the more interesting. "Breakdown of a man-of.war" Is.not an infrequent announcement in the news papers, but it generally refers to the mis haps of some vessel on her trial trip, and not of a ship in commission. In thls case two men.of-war were in great danger of being lost through accidents to their machi. nery, and were only saved, apparently, by what small sail power they possessed and the skill and readiness of their officers. The story, briefly told, is this. On the 23rd of February last the British equadron on the West Indian station, under Admiral Lyons, was proceeding to sea from the Port of Spain in Trinidad. The .passage out between the island and the main, called the Bocca Huevas Channel, is s...

THE YOUNG FOLKS. HOW THE GOOD GIFTS WERE USED BY TWO. FROM HARPER'S YOUNG PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

STHE .YOUNG FOLKS. SHOOW THE 'GOOD GIFTS WERE USED BY TWO. SB HOWARD PYLE. 1tr0o 0 HARPER ' YOUNG PEOPLE. I This is the way that this story begins: Once upon a time there was a rich brother 3 and a poor brother, and the one lived acrose 3 the street from the other. The rich brother had all of the world's gear that was good for him, and more besides; the poor brother had hardly enough to keep soul and body a together, yet he was contented with his lot. Ono day we should come travelling to the town where the rich brother and the poor brother lived but St. Nicholas hlmself, Just beside the town gate stood the great house of the rich brother; thither went the saint and knocked at the door, and it was the rich brother himself who came and opened it to him. Now St. Nicholas had had a long walk of it that day, so that he was quite covered with duet, and looked no better than he should. So when the rich brother heard St. Nicholas ask for a night's lodging at his fine great house, he gaped l...

KEPLER SOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

KEPLER SOLUTION. To circumvent the obstacles incident to the ordinary adminietration of cod liver oil various expedients have been resorted to. Realieing the importance of the o;l, and the futility in a large percentage of, cases, of aiving oil alone, on account of it's con. eietency and unpleasant taste, it has been combined with milk, coffee, beer, liquor, eggs, and other foods, that it might be better borne, In these instances the oil was not generally incorporated with the vehicle, but suspended en masse. It may here be In. quired-Have the difflculties referred to been obviated to any extent ? To overcome its unacceptibility, the oil was given in a condi. tion of subdivislon. This subdivision was effected by emulsification; alkalies, like potash, were used; and of course a soap was consequently formed. Soap is not largely absorbed by the system, and is not found in the blood. It seems to be the general impree. sion among pbhysioligits that oil. as such, pesses direct through the...

A CHAT WITH AN EMINENT CABIOATURIST. (aRamtNanoaha DAILY MAIL.) Aastout, cherry-faced gentleman, rather under medium height, with a ohert auburn Imoustache and beard, short hair, and com fortable tweed suit, answers the inter viewer's inquiry for Mr Fernies at the Masonio-hall. He in there, taking a rapid look around to see that all is right with his " artistic joke," and "Politices and Socelty," which are now on exhibition. If you were expeoting to find a tall, slender, deep.eyed, sentimental gentleman, with a faraway dreamy look, and a lackadaiscial aitistic limpness, the brisk activity of the original will Instantly dispel the ideal. Harry Furnlos-the decorous prefix seemed to be dropped by mutual consent amongst all who speak of him-is essentially a unick r witted man of the world, with all his faculties - keenly alive, and constantly in operation. He looks straight into one's face with a pair I of penetrating and half laughing eyes that make the individual who is not conscious ...

A SOUTH SEA PIRATE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

A SOUTH SEA PIRATE. A vessel which arrived at San Yraelseoo from Honolulu a few days ago (says an American paper of 28th February) brought newe of the death of a man, who is described as having been "the deuce of a fellow, wicked and big, with a voice like thunder." Twenty-five years ego, we are told, he was a pirate ; for some years before his death he had been a hermit. In the days of his wickedness and power he commanded a vessel called the Red Cloud, staunch, unusually fast. and fars nished with powerful guns, Periodically this carmino craft disappeared from the seas, and in her place would come another, all in sombre black, and named the Black. Cloud. This piece of theatrical effect, which cost nothing more than a little paint, had its expected influence upon the supe:stitious minds of the sailors who were sometimes seat in pursuit of the vessel. Most of them fully believed that there was something uncanny about the craft, and that her captain had supernatural help. And the Bri...

Hail on the Clown. An itinerant circse has lately been per formine at SB.

THE HOLY OF HOLIES OF ISLAM. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

THE HOLY OF HOLIES OF IEL M. The "Life of Sir Richard F. Burton," by Mr. F. Hitchman, contains an interesting aC~?dit CEth~iraveller'?visit to ite Holy of Holies of Islam, a place never visited by an Englishman before or esince. The narrative is in Sir Richard's own words: " A crowd had gathered round the Kala. bah, and I had no wish to stand bareheaded and barefooted in the midday September sun. At the cry of 'open a path for the Haji who would enter the House,' the gazers made way. Two stout Mecoane, who stood below the door, raised me in their arms, whilst a third drew me from above into the building. At the entrance I was accosted by several officials, dark-looking Mecoans, of whom the blackest and plainest was a youth of Benn Shaybah family, the true blue blood of El-Heiaz. He held in his band the huge silver gilt pad look of the Ka'abah, and presently taking his seat upon a kind of wooden press in the left corner of the hall be officially inquired my name, nation, and other pa...

'THE OUTLAWS OF TUN. STALL-- FOREST:* A ROMANCE OF THE OLD WORLD Br ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON, S Author of " Treasuere Island." Eto. PBOLOGUE.-JOHN AMwromEN-.a?.. On a certain afternoon, in the late spring 'time, the bell upon Tunstall Moat Housnee was heard ringing at an unaccustomed houttr. Faor and near, in the forest and in the fields alone the river, people began to desert their laboure and hurry towards the sound; and in Tunetall 'hamlet a group of poor country folk stood wondering at the summons. Tunestall hamlet at that period, in the reign of old King Henry VI., wore ,much the same appearance as it wears to-day. A score or so of houses, heavily framed with oak, stood scattered in a long green valley aseonding from the river. At the foot, the road crossed a bridge, and mounting on the other side, disappeared into 'the fringee of the forest on its way to the Moat House. and further forth to Holywood Abbey. Half-way up the village, the church stood among yews. On every aide the e...
