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: &nbsp; "Master James may put on his new &nbsp; trousers to-day," said Nurse, as she walked into the room where three children were in bed. "Oh, may I &nbsp; really put on my trousers?" cried Jim. &nbsp; When they came out to breakfast their mother and aunt kissed Willie and &nbsp; Ida; but when auntie went to kiss Jim &nbsp; he said: "I am too big for ladies to &nbsp; kiss, now." After they had finished breakfast, they children prepared to go out to play. Jim usually took a hoop or skipping rope; but &nbsp; 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," &nbsp; said Jim, "what do you want to cry ...

THE AUSTRALIAN OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The 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 &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; inferior in steady, persevering...
FANCY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The 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!" &nbsp; &nbsp; but I assure you, unless you can do all this kind of sewing neatly and easily, you will never shine at other needle- &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; had a very lacey effect. With the least knowled...
CHATTER PAGE EDITOR'S NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
HÄTTE» fi EDITOR'S NOTE. We want to encourage our little friends to Bend us short, chatty letters on matters of general interest. Every month we will print a page of the best, and ¡it 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. Any letters not for publication should be headed PRIVATE. Dear Editor, -A very unusual thing happened last night. We had snow -a thing that we never had before. Between five and six it began to snow, and lasted to between six and seven. It snowed a little between eight and nine, but not much. It was about two inches deep on the ground, and it was the first snow any of us had ever seen, except mother and father. I had great fun, and made three snow men. It was little sister Winnie's sixth birthday. She would not stay in the house, because she said the snow was sent for her birthday. The cattle and horses did not know what to make of it, one horse especially-a grey one. ...
BUYING A CAMEL [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
IN his very interesting book, " With Kitchener to Khartum," Mr. (x. W. Steevens gives this account of his purchase of a pair of camels " I got to Assouan and there a new trial awaited mc. 1 had no camels and it would he absurd to go to the Soudan without camels. Now I knew nothing at all about the points of a camel, nor of its market price, nor what it eats, nor could I ride it. However, camels had to be bought, and I borrowed an interpreter and went out to the Bisharin Village, outside Assouan, and bought some. The interpreter said he knew all about camels and that the}" were worth £27 a pair. "First, though, tiley had to be tried. The Bisharin were all standing about grouped round little heaps of dry cracked mud, which it took a moment's considera- tion to recognise as their houses. Their costume consisted mainly of their hair in little tight plaits tumbling every way over their heads ; they have it done thus in infancy, and never take it out of curl : it looks like the inside hai...

FANCY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
FANCY WORK. By MRS. ERNEST FAVENC. If you have not already seen this decoration for tray cloths or sideboard cloths I am sure you will bc delighted with it ; it is most simple and inex- pensive. The material is just the red lined linen tea towelling, and the thread red ingrain cotton. First there is a hem- stitched hem, and if you feel inclined you might elaborate on this by working a drawn thread hem with a little pattern, instead of the plain hemstitch. You then work in the lines of coral stitching, and these must be straight and evenly worked. Next you put the lines in for the spiderweb, carry each tincad over as far as it will go, instead of completing one square first. These lines must not be dragged nor too loose, and when all are filled in a square you will notice a little cross that holds each thread. From the centre you pass up the needle, with a fair length of thread, to avoid having a join, and collect the eight lines in a bunch, making a firm knot ; then darn round for t...
