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

Letter Writing. By "GOSSIP." A/i" V dear children, I want te talk to you about something that is not ..science." Perhaps it would be more correct to call it " art." It is the art of letter-writing. A great many of you have taken to writing letters for publi- cation in our columns, and a good many of you will keep those letters till you are men and women. Our grandfathers and grandmothers used to cultivate the art of writing letters, and it was a very graceful and useful art, too. But the penny newspaper and the fevered life of the modern man, and a few other causes, have driven the art out. Now, however, with the development of the young people's paper, has come a new era. Letter-writing is coming into fas- hion, and I want to tell you something Once upon a time I had a very good schoolteacher, who was anxious to teach us little boys to think. He never wanted us to learn things " by heart" when we knew what they meant. He wanted us to learn to write letters, and he told us to write ...

THE STORY OF SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899

THE STORY OF SOUTH AFRICA. THE present unfortunate st J te of affairs in the Transvaal is natur- ally attracting the attention of the world to South Africa. So we here set down for the information of our boys and girl* a brief outline of the story of South Africa. It was in the early years of the fifteenth centur}- that Portugal, the first European country to form oversea colo- nies, commenced to make discoveries along the West African coast. To Prince Henry the Navigator, the Portu- guese Duke of Viseo, is chiefly due the increased interest in navigation and dis- covery which led to such important voyages during that famous fifteenth contury. TwentA'-six years after the death of the Navigator Prince, the Portuguese at length reached (1487) the " Cape of Storms." The}' did not make any at- tempt to form a settlement, but merely planted the Portuguese flag there. Eleven years later (1487) Vasco da Gama made his remarkable thirteen-months" voyage to India, sailing round the "Cape of S...

GEOGRAPHICAL FACTS & FANCIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899

By GEO. COLLINGRIDGE, Member of the Council of the Royal Geographical Society of Australasia. III. EARLY GLOBES AND MAPS OF THE WORLD, AND STRANGE NOTIONS CONCERNING THE SHAPE OF THE EARTH. O OME of the earliest people of the ^ earth, who lived on the hanks of the rivers that now through the country once called Mesopotamia, constructed curious round boats with winch they could easily paddle about in any direction. These boats were, in shape, very much like a Chinese ginger jar. and. strange to say. the same kind of boat is still used ro this day on the lower shores of the same rivers near the confluence of the Euphrates and Tigris. One of the quaint notions of those ancient people was that the earth we inhabit was shaped like the round boats that they used. They fancied that it was hollow, and had an opening like their boats, but this open portion they imagined to be underneath, and that an immense and rapid river or ocean flowed round the gaping hollow. In that ocean lived one of t...

LIEUTENANT PEARY, the great American Arctic navigator, has just returned to Newfoundland. He left America in June last year in the steamship Windward. The explorer hoped to get as far as the north of Greenland, and thence go over the ice northwards to the Pole, living in snow huts with the Esquim- aux. But he failed to get farther north than his own and other ex- plorers' tonner highest latitude. A LARG ii party of French expl >rers, under a guidance of M. Foureau, the well-known African traveller, whilst travelling from Algeria, southward to Lake Tchad, over the recently-acknowledged French ter- ritory, was attacked by natives near the Oasis of Air. The whole of the members were massacred.

"MAROONED" A ROMANCE OF UNKNOWN AUSTRALIA CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899

AV5Tßi\L1 CHAPTER QI. This is the story of John Hammond as he told me on several occasions during the week following my first visit. He was soon able to leave his bed, and sit on the little verandah overlooking the harbour, and I whiffed my pipe while Hammond repeated the tale of his won 1 C 1 1_¿ demil adventures. " My father-God rest him!-fell in the cause of Charles, while I was a little boy at my nurse s apron-strings : but as my two uncles stood well in the parliamentary interest, and I had no brothers to espouse the King's cause, we did .not suffer as others did in the black days that followed '4Í). The Rector of Cunewold was a man of ad- vanced ideas, who in another age might have gained the Crown of Martyrdom, but he was come of a county family of little wealth but great respect, so his leanings to the King were glossed over, and many a man who said less suffered more. "In 1655,1 was a youth of twentj^.and with my Cousin Roger, sought to win the love of the rector's pretty d...

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

Empire Builders. No. 2. SIR GEORGE GREY. IV. /^REY College, in the capital of the Orange Free State (Bloemfontein), will stand for ages as a memorial of his interest in the education of even alien peoples. In Capetown not only his monu- ment before the Free Public Library, but the Library itself his own gift to the colonists-serves to keep his memory green. Many schools and hospitals in various towns owe their foundation to him, whilst Dr. Liv- ingstone acknowledged in generous terms the hearty sympathy and encouragement which he had re- ceived in his arduous work from the warm-hearted Empire-builder. Not tlc least of his services were the introduction of ostrich-farming as a profitable industry, and the first railway in Africa. In 1861 Governor Grey was-for the third time-called upon to ren- der signal service to the Empire by taking charge of a colony in diffi- culties. Troubles had become acute in New Zealand, and natives were in a state of disaffection. So the Imperial Governmen...

FOREIGN STAMPS. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899

FOREIGN STAMPS. IV HÖHERE is no doubt that, considered as an investment, provided that the selection is judiciously made, the collection of stamps is one of the safest that can be recommended. I remember, when I was a little boy, I had dozens of triangular Cape stamps and three or four Mulready envelopes. If I had them now they would be worth several hundred pounds, and I used them only as the cheapest of playthings. The first issue of the old penny post office Mauritius is worth £1,000, and the twopenny one is of the same value. The philatelist is a power in the land, with a host of dealers ever on the outlook to supply him with rare varieties, with journals devoted to his interest and societies founded for the preservation and propagation of his ideas. Perhaps no fad-if we may use the term-is more popular, from the schoolboy who collects continentals at a shilling a pound to the powerful Czar of Russia, who is said to possess a collection valued at many thou- sands of pounds, all ...
