THE UNIVERSITY JUNIOR EXAMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899
THE UNIVERSITY JUNIOR EXAMINATION. THE results of "the junior" have been made known during the past &nbsp; month. There is perhaps no incident of school life which is looked forward to with greater interest than the publica- tion of this list. We regret that our paper is not quite large enough to give the complete list of 752 successful candi- dates ; but we hope that before the next time comes round, the paper will have grown large enough to spare space for this interesting record. There were 1091 candidates, and 69 per cent, passed whilst 111 qualified for matriculation. Amongst the girls, the blue-ribbon of the year was carried off by Miss Jessie Skillman, second daughter of Mr. H. Skillman the well-known Inspector of Schools for the Metropolitan District. Miss Skillman, whose portrait we present on this page, was born at New- castle in October, 1883. She received her primary education under Miss M. Gray at the Superior public School, Kogarah. MISS SKILLMAN. Less than 3 y...
GEOGRAPHICAL FACTS & FANCIES [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899
By GEO. COLLINGRIDGE, Member of the Council of the Royal 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 suhjects. " Geographical Facts and Fancies " will he continued in our next issue, and followed by " Some Ancient Opinions on the Shape of the Earth. "] PART II. Every girl and hoy will notice that thc old Portuguese geographers gave too much breadth to Java, and the reason for it is that, as they say, they were not acquainted with the regions to the south of Java. Now, why did they not frequent that 8ea which lies between Australia and Java, and which they called Laut Kidol, or South Sea I There are two reasons. The principal one is that all their trade and shipping was with Asia and the Spice Islands, where they went for cloves, nutmegs, pepper, and other spices. To go to Europe and back they passed through the Straits of Sunda, between Su...

I have five sisters, and one of them, who is two years older than me, got the prize with me at school for the highest conduct marks. It is a book called " On to the Rescue, a tale of the Indian Mutiny." We have had some nice rain lately, and the grass is getting a little bit green.

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. AU letters to the Editor will be replied to as far as possible under this head i na. M.K.W. Your Fairy Story is a very good one for a girl of eight.

Out=door Sports. Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899
Outdoor Sports. [BY "OBSERVER."] ['I lie Sports Editor will he glad to receive notes of school sports for inclusion in this column, ami is y re pured to answer any questions concerning the game of Cricket.] (ricket. The different school clubs are making preparations for the coming season, and practice matches are being indulged in. Several new clubs, I hear, have been formed, and the season, as far as school cricket is concerned, at any rate, pi omises to he an interesting one. We hope to regularly devote a column or two to the field doings of the Publie Schools, and more particularly to the contests of the (beat Public Schools. It is interesting to note that many of our best cricketers emerged from thc ranks of school elevens. Noonan and Ebsworth (of Waverley) learnt their cricket at St. Joseph's and the King's School respectively ; R. Donnan (brother of Harry Donnan) played for Sydney ( dammar School. At the Church of England Grammar School sports, S. Holtermann achieved a meritor...
Athletics. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899
Athletics. A. D. W. Fisher was in good form at the Church of England Grammar School sports, winning no less than three of the principal events. He covered 100 yards in 10 2.5 seconds; 220 &nbsp; &nbsp; yards in 24 4.5 seconds, and the quarter mile in 58 seconds-three good perform- ances. The 150 yards under 16 (all schools) was won by G. W. Hinton (Syd- ney Grammer School) in 17 seconds. In the Form and Flag Race, Form III. A (2) had 100 yards handicap in 1600 yards, and won. The team consisted of Black, Bland, Bulloch, Dent, Forsyth, Grant, Hartridge and Reid.
Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899
Football. On the 17th instant the &nbsp; King's school and New- ington met in their fix- ture in the second round of the Schools' Premiership, when the former won by 19 points to nil. F. Futter (2), V. Fut- ter, Richards and Newton secured tries, from two of which White and Body kicked goals. The English footballers were enter- tained at a farewell banquet on the 12th instant. In proposing the health of the Australian team, the captain (Rev. M. Mullineaux) remarked that he would like to see senior clubs take a great deal of interest in boys' clubs. If they were taught to learn the game, nothing would be lost in the end. The final test match between England and Australia was decided in the Sydney Cricked Ground on August 12. The ground was in a terrible sloppy state, and the players could not keep their feet. During the course of the play the rain came down in torrents, and it was a difficult matter to recognise any of the players, for they were covered in mud from head to fo...
THE LAND OF THE LILIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899
THE LAND OF THE LILIES. IT was summer, and all the land was &nbsp; &nbsp; bathed in golden light. The sky was a &nbsp; &nbsp; deep blue with never a cloud to mar its brilliancy. The sea as blue as the sky, except where the waves broke in a gentle ripple on the long stretch of yellow sand. Children played in the sparkling water, or building mimic castles on the beach, laughed and danced in the utter abandon of their joy. Beyond the stretch of beach was the park, and beyond the park, set pleasantly among shady trees, were the white houses that fringed the town. Comfor- able houses, where men and women led comfortable lives, and children never knew the grim hardships that dominated the other end of the town; the end of &nbsp; the town where the houses stood thickly &nbsp; together on the flat, treeless land; where &nbsp; instead of plots of green grass, were squares of grey, black earth; where the &nbsp; fences were patche...

Abdullahi is the Khalifa; the mis- &nbsp; guided fanatic, who, as successor to the Mahdi, leads the revolting Soudanese. He was defeated and driven into exile at Omdurman last September. ...

Science. Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899
Science. Water. By "GOSSIP." &nbsp; &nbsp; THE pleasantest way to acquire infor- &nbsp; &nbsp; mation is by asking questions. I &nbsp; like to find a man who can answer my questions, and I like to answer questions for others. Here is a little girl, "Ella," &nbsp; who asks a question about water, and she &nbsp; says: "I am eleven years and five months old. I hope you will not put my letter in the waste paper basket, as I saw &nbsp; &nbsp; in the paper where you put one child's letter in it." &nbsp; &nbsp; I don't remember putting a child's letter the W.P.B., but if I did, I &nbsp; &nbsp; did; and there must have been a reason for it. But your question, Ella is a very wise one, and a very difficult one, and if you were a grown up I fancy I would tell you that I didn't know. Two people were arguing about the boiling of a kettle. One said it was too full and would not boil quickly, so...
