"MAROONED" A ROMANCE OF UNKNOWN AUSTRALIA CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The 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...

Mademoiselle Nuage et Mademoiselle Rayon-de-Soleil. Following are the two last paragraphs of Miss Cloud and Miss Sunbeam from tile Second (leader, and correspondents are invited to set the English under the corresponding French words, as : Ma fenêtre donne sur un jardin. My window overlooks a garden. !). Lem mere voulait leur faire une surprise une après-midi* Quand elles revinrent de Icc de, elles virent sous le pommier dans la cour une table couverte d'une nappe blanche. Dessus il y avait de petits gâteaux à la crème, un petit pot de miel, des gâteaux au riz, un grand plat de noix et de candi au milieu. Que de rires et de cris de joie ! et comme elles coururent chercher leurs poupées en eire et leurs petits services à thé. 10. Quand tout fut fini, j'entendis Mademoiselle Nuage demander : " N'espéres-tu pas que maman nous fera une autre surprise '! " "Oh! je ne pense pas à une autre," dit Rayon-de-Soleil, " je pense à celle-ci, c'est si gentil ! " et sa jolie figure était toute sou...
Empire Builders. No. 2.—SIR GEORGE GREY. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The 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 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 ...

You start with some unnecessary detail as to what your partner and you had decided to do, which, has no effect on the unravellment of the story. You have crude phrases ljke "little passing re- marks about the weather, etc.," etc. ' Excuse errors as it seems natural for me to make them " is charming. As a whole it is smart and promising and has not reached the W. P. B. ROD. J. -We are glad that you are building a doll's house for your little sister.

A NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
A NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT. In our jottings from time to time on . the life-stories of " boys who have risen *' (says the B.O.P. ) we have given many instances of what pluck and steady perseverance have accomplished ; }ret few cases have been much more striking than that of Mr. Preece, the well-known Chief of Telegraphs, just retired from the General Post Office, England. In an article on the achievements of Mr. Preece, the Daily News remarked that, after a life devoted in various capacities to electricity, he has risen to his present eminent position from the humble be- ginning of a clerk at 30s. a week. Pro- bably he is proudest of the active part he took in the creation of the block system on our railways, which is worked entirely by electric signals. He says that a first-class compartment is now the safest place in the world, and furnished some remarkable figures. Who would believe that there are over -20.(Mill needle instruments used in our signal-boxes ? Telephones-16,000? Repeater...
THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS' SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS' SPORTS. To Sydney boys and girls the most in- teresting event of the past month has been the Annual Sports gathering of the P.S.A.A.A., which came off on the Royal Agricultural Society's Grounds, Moore Park, on Friday, loth inst. Ideal spring weather once again favoured the Associ- ation, and the attendance of parents and children numbered fully 80,000, making a record gathering for such an occasion. The Public Schools' Athletic Association was formed nearly twelve years ago, for the purpose of promoting physical edu- cation in the Public Schools of N.S.W., and everyone agrees that it has been eminently successful in carrying out this object. The first Annual Sports gather- ing was held in 1SSS, and it proved very successful. Year by year the meeting has attracted a huger share of interest, until now there are comparatively few children in the metropolitan schools who do not look forward to it as the occasion for the outing of the season. To Mr. H. X. Southwell, ...
DOROTHY DOT DOLLS DRESSMAKER [BY THE EDITOR THIS TIME.] [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
DOT DRESSMAKER [BY THE EDITOR THIS TIME.] THE shop windows are all bright with &nbsp; spring fashions, and the grown-ups are having their cool clothes for the warm weather. And, of course, although there doesn't seem to be much change in dolly's fashions, she can't be expected to wear the thick heavy clothing she wore in the cold weather. A very little friend of mine has a large family of dolls. If I had thought of it in time, I would have shown you their photographs. There is Miss Win- nifred Wood, a big Dutch doll, with black hair and a wee pointy nose between red cheeks. She moves her arms and legs like railways signals, and is very stiff and formal in her movements. She never smiles, and is generally believed to be a schoolteacher. She has a dark grey frock, and won't wear a hat, because the only way it will stick on is when a tack is driven through the crow into the top of her head, and Ailsa-that's the little girl-says "It might kill her." Then there is Edith. She is b...
THE FOURTH DIMENSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
THE FOURTH DIMENSION. SOME time ago H. G. Wells published a novel called "The &nbsp; Time Machine." In it a party of scientific friends discuss the possi- bility of adding a fourth dimension, and the three already existing, viz: &nbsp; length, breadth and thickness-the fourth dimension being time or existence. A block of ice pos- sesses all three, for the period of its being ice; but when &nbsp; it is melted into water, the possibility of it, as ice, being mea- sured by time becomes feasible. It was a pretty theory, on which to found a tale of much interest, and the book is one of the most fascin- ating that Mr. Wells has written; &nbsp; but we only use his story as a text on which to hang a sermon of our own. When a man was dependent on his unaided efforts of locomotion, dis- stance was a serious difficulty to overcome. So serious, that to-day his is as energetic as ever in en- deavouring to conquer it. In the last century, ships were sometimes weeks...
NEWS OF THE EMPIRE [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
A BRITISH WARSHIP - The Melita - has just visited Sebastopol, in the Crimean peninsula. This is the first visit of a British ship since the sad and foolish war of 1853. At the great Black Sea grain-exporting port of Odessa the British officers were entertained right royally by the Russian garrison. THE ANNUAL Nile River flood, which fertilises the northern part of Egypt by carrying down the rich black sediment supplied by the Abyssinian mountains, reaches its greatest height at Khartoum in September (it begins to rise each May). News comes from Africa that the present flood is the worst for many years past. This will mean that the season in the Nile Valley will be a poor one, and the supply of wheat, cotton, etc., will be much diminished. THE WESTERN part of our Indian Empire, like our own land, has long suffered from a terrible drought; &nbsp; &nbsp; but on September 10 heavy rains fell, and there is every hope now that the wheat crop will be a suc- cess. THE BRITIS...

THE ABORIGINAL NAMES OF PLACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
THE ABORIGINAL NAMES OF PLACES. The Hon. Geo. Thornton, M.L.C., who is understood to be one of the best living authorities on the language of the abori- gines, has forwarded to Mr. Archibald Campbell, M.L.A., of Wollongong, the following remarks concerning the names of places mentioned. He considers, very truly, that the proper native rendering of the names given, and their respective meanings, are well worth remembering. Mr. Thornton writes :—"I had a good knowledge of the names of those places 40 or 50 years ago, when I used to camp out among the blacks about Wollongong, Kiama, and Jervis Bay, but my memory of these things, not having been exercised &nbsp; very much of late years, has faded a good deal. I dare say that you know, too, that the aboriginal dialect differed much within distances of 70 or 80 miles. For example, the language of the Sydney of Botany Bay blacks was quite unintelli- gible to those of Kiama and Shoalhaven. And the same difference existed north and s...
