ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. AU letter» to the Editor "'ill be replied tn as fin- as possible under this heâdinQ. c. G. -"In the Waiting Room'" is very good, but ¡is you say "-!" 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. By and bye we will tell you how to make furniture, and by the time she has her dolls dressed the house will be ready for them.

A NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian 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 Australian 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 Australian 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 Australian 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 Australian 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 Australian 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...
CHATTER PAGE EDITOR'S NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian 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. ...
KEPT IN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 September 1899
KEPT IN. Tilt' boy stood on the schoolroom form, Whence all but he had fled ; Thc calm hud now dispelled the storm That raged about his head. But sorrowful and sad he stood, For he was in disgrace A "pickle" in a mournful mood, With proud though grimy face. Thc t ime rolled on ; he could not go Without his master s word. That master, at his desk below-, His voice no longer heard. He called aloud, " Must 1 be kept ? My tooth, sir, is so bad ! " He knew not that the master slept, Unconscious of the lad. He shouted out once more aloud, "Sii\ T shall lose my train." With bended head and shoulders bowed, The master snored amain. Upon his cheeks tears came and went ; He pulled his inky hair ; And from that post of punishment He looked in sheer despair. "Say, please sir," once again he cried, "If I may yet begone ;" And but a louder snore replied - His master slumbered on. Then came a burst of thunder sound. Ti ir boy, oh, where was he! The form capsized, lay on the ground, To wake the dom...
BUYING A CAMEL [Newspaper Article] — The Australian 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...
