EXPLORATIONS IN CENTRAL ASIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899
EXPLORATIONS äX CENTRAL ASIA. Capthin Deasy has arrived at Simla from Leh, on his return from two years' travelling in Eastern Turkestan and West ern Tibet. Since he crossed the Indian frontier two years ago Captain Deasy has travelled 5300 miles, and made complete surveys of all the country tra versed. His most important wor k was (says the Simla correspondent of the / ¡mes) done in the valley of the Tark ami River, the fine stream which flows into Lob Xor, where after three failures and in the face of the greatest physical and climatic difficulties he succeeded in surveying a large tract of previously un explored country from the west end of Raskam to Kosarab. This part of the valley has been previously crossed by Europeans at two points, but the course of the river has never been explored, and Captain Deasy's observations correct existing maps materially. The traveller was twice frost-bitten, and the party suffered much from hardship and expo sure. Captain Deasy strongly resents ...

FOREIGN NEWS [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899
THE SOUTH AFRICAN* REPUBLIC supplied £15,000,000 worth of gold during 1898, i.e., about one quarter of the world's yield. It was ex pected to yield one-third more than this value during the current year, but the present war in South Africa has largely interfered with this im portant industry. DURING this month a great demonstration is being held in Chicago, United States, called the All Nations' Parade. It consists of a series of promenade concerts and similar festivals, including an enormous chorus rendered by 15,000 voices. People of most of the European nat1 ons are taking part in it. ENCOURAGING NEWS comes from the Philippines, to the effect that many of the native rebels have agreed to submit to the rule of Major-General Otis. We all hope that this is the beginning of the end of the unhappy troubles in that disturbed group. A few days sub sequently two of the largest tcwn ships of the island of Luzon were captured by the Americans and amongst the booty were 345 guns which the F...

Our correspondents will notice that a new and less laborious, though equally valuable lesson, has been set them this month. M. Périer is to be congratulated on the success of this column, and we hope that our readers will avail themselves of the rare opportunity offered to them. The Department of Public Instruction have sanctioned the use of M. Périer's book in the public schools, thus paying a deserved compliment to the educational value of the work.
NEWS OF THE EMPIRE [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899
THE ARBITRATORS in the Vene zuelan-Guiana dispute have, at last, announced their decision England gets even more than she claimed. LORD KITCHENER of Khartoum is now preparing foi' another attack upon the Khalifa, who is supposed to be entrenched near Jebel Gedir, in Kordofan. »Six thousand Egyp tian troops are now massed at Kaka, near Fashoda, and it is expected that they will attack the Khalifa next month. THE ALL-ABSORBING NEWS is the war in the Transvaal. It is ex pected that Britain will merely act on the defensive till the arrival of the large body of troops now en route from England to South Africa. Then it is probable the English forces will march forward and take possession of Johannesburg. A FEW WEEKS AGO a French fisherman came with his vessel within three miles of the English coast-thus breaking the law. A British warship fired at him to warn him off, and, unfortunately, he was killed. The Queen has now presented a sum of ¿£400 to his widow - an act of grace which has cau...

FOREIGN STAMPS. V. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899
FOREIGN STAMPS. V. I think I have said before that I am not a stamp-dealer. Merely to oblige my subscribers I have, in several cases, bought and forwarded stamps when asked to do so. But you must not expect me to pur chase your stamp collections. One little boy from the country wishes to know if I will buy 100 used N.S.W. stamps ! He had better apply to one of the Sydnej^ stamp dealers. I think they are worth about 2d. per thousand ; but I doubt whether you could hud a dealer willing to pay even that price for them. A correspondent sends to inquire : " Which country has only one form of postage stamp ? As far as I know no separate country has this distinction ; but Tierra del Fuego (Argentina) has only one variety ; so also have Poland (Russia) and Las Bela (Baluchistan). The New Hebrides, Crete, and Formosa each have two varieties only. Now that the Philippines are nomin ally an American possession, the stamps in use there are the ordinary United States stamps surcharged with colon...

A Mammoth Baboon. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899
A Mammoth Baboon. ONE of the principal personages (says Mr. H. W. Lucy, in his letter to the Sydney Morning Herald) if not absolutely the most important, in the domestic establishment of the British Consul at Tunis during the residence of Sir Harry Johnston was Dinduna. The gentleman is a baboon of immense size and quite human intelligence. Last Autumn, when the Princess of Wales was cruising about the Mediterranean, the yacht put in at Tunis, and H.R.H. drove out to Marsa on a visit to the ancient Arah palace which serves the British Consul for country-house. H.R.H. was much in terested in Dinduna, who graciously received her advances. He lived in a roomy iron cage adjoining the verandah of the house. When, last winter, I stayed at the Consulate, I had the honor of Dinduna's most intimate acquaintance. It was, I confess, in the first instance, purchased by the bestowal of dates. Hut as the days passed I flatter myself a natural gift of discrimination led to another and more abiding...
Science. Cockroach Babies. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899
Science. Cockroach Babies. By "GOSSIP." T ^ II) you ever see a cockroach ? They are wonderful fellows, and their ways of life are amusing. They eat the horn buttons off coats, and the patent leather off shoes, and they eat almost everything. The larger ones can fly, but hot very far, nor very well. In the early days, long, long, long ago, they were a flying family, but they took to crawling in dark places and gave up flying, and now they have almost lost the use of their wings entirely. As I say, some of the big cockroaches can fly a bit, but the family, as a whole, may be said to be creepers. There are different kindsof cockroaches, of course, and sometimes you find several different sorts in one district. There is the big brown one, that affects sugar countries, and there is the little black one that lives in colder places, and there is the little brown one that always haunts water pipes and cisterns. They have different names, scientifically, but we won't worry about those. The n...
