Many competitors made a satisfactory attempt at a short story on Mr. Souter's picture. Here is one of the best of them sent in by Mary Butt, of Bongongolong:   "Master James may put on his new   trousers to-day," said Nurse, as she walked into the room where three children were in bed. "Oh, may I   really put on my trousers?" cried Jim.   When they came out to breakfast their mother and aunt kissed Willie and   Ida; but when auntie went to kiss Jim   he said: "I am too big for ladies to   kiss, now." After they had finished breakfast, they children prepared to go out to play. Jim usually took a hoop or skipping rope; but   he did not this morning, and when they scampered off to their favourite place in the garden to play, some- how Jim was all left behind. As they were running Willie fell down, and began to cry. "Oh you cry-baby,"   said Jim, "what do you want to cry ...

THE AUSTRALIAN OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899

THE AUSTRALIAN OF THE FUTURE. MR. OSCAR BROWNING, the best-known living authority on English school life, has stated his opinion that the average youth of today gives his entire thought and his whole conversation to games. "His path of education progress   is marked out by fences and sign- posts; the road is macadamised with guide and extract books, and made smooth and easy by marks and examinations. Nothing is left to his own enterprise and ingenuity, he can always tell exactly where he is, and is sure to receive at the end of the measured mile the applause of his approving backers. He knows how to get up anything. he   is convinced that the whole duty of life is to be doing something, that is, to be going in for some competition. To sit in a chair and read a book is laziness in his eyes." And the result is that whilst he is far superior in manliness and vigour to a Frenchman, or an Italian or a German, is far   inferior in steady, persevering...

FANCY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 August 1899

FANCY WORK. BY MRS. ERNEST FAVENC. I can quite imagine directly most of you look at the illustration given, your exclamations of "Call that fancy work!"     but I assure you, unless you can do all this kind of sewing neatly and easily, you will never shine at other needle-   work. Now, in these days of sewing machines, plain needlework is becoming one of the last arts to a certain extent. Perhaps a few of you have ever tried to make a sampler of old-fashioned stitch- ing, tucking, hemming, and button- holing. I hope you will try. and I should be very glad if you would show me the results of your work. All the stitches given here are used in embroidery, and there are two, the herringbone and the single coral stitch with which you may adorn the edges of your samplers. I am not asking you to work only at the samplers, but give you directions for a Crochet Collar; it is very simple, and   had a very lacey effect. With the least knowled...

Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899

Cricket. J. Darling, captain ol the Australian Eleven, heads the Australian hatting hst with the splendid average of 41-21) runs per innings. During the tour he made !!)41 runs, which is the highest number ever recorded hy an Australian in England. Darling possesses great physical strength, as is proved by the fact that he toi k part in every match played. His style of hatting is most attractive, being both sound and aggres- sive. In 1896 Darling's average was 29*90 for 53 innings, and he achieved the distinction of being the highest individual scorer throughout the tour, with 194 against Leicestershire. J. Worrall and Clem. Hill were how led fewer times than any other member of the team. When it was definitely stated that Victor Trumper was to be a member of the Tenth Australian Eleven, several ci itics made strong objections to his in- clusion, and predicted anything hut success for this brilliant young batsman. Consequently it is gratifying to know that Trumper not only occupies ...

AN INCH OF RAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899

AN INCH OF RAIN. "We had nearly an inch of rain" is a frequent expression, but very few people can form a definite idea of what it means. An acre is equal to 6,272,640 square inches, and water an inch deep on the area will be 6,272,640 cubic inches of water, which at i277 "274 to the gallon will mean 22,622*5 gallons. This quantity of water would weigh 226,225 Ihs., or 101 tons, less L5 ll>s. One hundredth of an inch (0-01 inch) of rain is equal, therefore, to one ton per acre.
