MY LITTLE BROTHER [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899

I've got a little brother, But he isn't any good ; He cannot play at any games That little boys should ! He hasn't hardly any hair, He's got no teeth at all ; He only .sleeps in winks and blinks, And wakens up to bawl. You nullit to see him suck his thumb Or hear him try to talk ; He's got a nurse to carry him, Because he cannot walk. They say that I was once like him, But that can hardly be ; For I could run about and talk, Since I remember me.

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

' I AHIS seemed to me a rather hazardous exploit, but we had seen no one, Ddthe univ signs of life were a flock of parrots and some animals I afterwards learned were kangaroos. There seemed no plausible danger ; besides, Roger seemed to expect my demurring at his proposal ; so, although I somewhat feared to go, I did not say so, but asked him for his spare pistol-he carried two - which, after some haggling, he gave me, with three charges of powder. I declaring that I had only two for my own. He left me at the edge of a thick bush. I had a pocket compass with me, which gave me the direction, and almost at noon by the sun I saw the last of Roger Hammond, until you gave me his headpiece a few weeks ago." " He abandoned you," said I. " Yes. When I got on the other side of the hill, I searched among the hollows for some creek or spring, and at last found a wide lagoon covered with wild ducks. One I shot with my pistol, besides a small ...

THE ANGLO-AMERICAN ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899

THE ANGLO-AMERICAN ALLIANCE. EWS is just received that the arbitrators in the Vene zuelan dispute have given a deci sion greatly in favour of England. Three ye^rsago England quarrelled with the United States respecting the boundary line between Vene zuela and British Guiana. When England acquired the Guianacolony, its western boundary was not very clearly defined. The matter was not very important at the time, and when England sent a commis sioner to fix the boundary line, and Venezuela would not agree to his decision, the matter remained in abeyance for some years. The dis covery of gold on the disputed territory, however, gave a new aspect to the question. The United States interfered on behalf of Venezuela. This caused much anger in England, and for some time silly men on both sides of the Atlantic talked of a war between the two Anglo-Saxon nations. For tunately, better counsels prevailed, and the matter in dispute was referred to arbitration, with the result that England now ge...

Empire Builders. No. 3.—LORD KITCHENER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899

Empire Builders. No. 3.-LORD KITCHENER. J N the early morning hours of a grey January day, in 1883, a visitor to the military barracks, on the banks of the Kiver Nile, near the outskirts of the grand city of Cairo, might have seen a young English officer testing the riding capacity of a few scores of rough Egyptian peasants, who were being recruited as native officers for the new army. Three months earlier the old army of Egypt - the army of Turks and Egyptians-had been utterly destro}Ted by Sir Garnet Wolseley at Tel-el-kebir, and now Sir Evelyn Wood and his couple of dozen young English officers were be ginning the unpromising task of making a new one. Amongst these British officers was this tall, slight, young subaltern. His steel-grey eyes, his fixed, immovable gaze, his steady decision and quiet impressive manner, marked him out even then as a " strong " man. The native peasants went through their trials ; they rode past at the trot and at the gallop ; they took a tura at ridin...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. All letters to the Editor will be replied to as far as possible under this headina. ELLA. -You are evidently a girl that thinks, and you live with other people that also think. That other question about why the sea " does not get any less salt" with "all the fresh water that runs into it " makes me want to write a whole page. The editor would stop me if I tried to. The reason is this, if I can put it into a few lines : every river that runs into the sea brings with it a large percentage of salt and other substances. The heat of the sun draws the water up to make clouds, and the clouds break against the cold mountain tops and come down again as rivers to the sea. But the sun did not suck up the salt, so, if the process kept on long enough, the sea would be all salt. The moment you begin to discuss a subject like that, you see how large it grows ? About the kettles : a little water in a large kettle would boil sooner that the same quantity in a small kettle,...

EDITOR'S NOTE, We want to encourage our little friends to end us short, chatty letters on matters of general interest. Every month we will print a page of the hest, and at the end of the year give a prize for the best letter sent in. The pointe on which it will gain a place will he composition and subject. Any letters not for publication should be headed PRIVATE. Dear Editor,-lt is a long time since I wrote to you. You then asked me to let you know how to catch crawfish, so I will tell yon. Get a piece .of cotton and tie it on a stick ; tie a piece of meat on the cotton ; you can take either fresh or salt meat. I have not been crawfishing for a long time. They may also be caught with a bay spread on a hoop, on which a piece of meat is tied and a stone to sink it. This is gently lowered into the water till it reaches the bottom, where the crawfish are. Our paper is getting very in teresting. I like the story about Dorothy Dot, Doll's Dressmaker and Brother Bob, Builder, and the Sea U...

AN ESSAY ON THE USE OF A POCKET KNIFE. MR. JNO. BAKER'S PRIZE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899

AN ESSAY ON THE USE OF A POCKET KNIFE. MR. JNO. BAKER'S PRIZE. This has been the most interesting batch of letters that has reached the CN., and we print several besides the winner to show the kind of boy we are growing in Australia. They all want knives for skinning and scalping-because, as one boy naively remarks, " I get fourpence for every scalp I bring in ! " A few instance that knives "are use ful for cutting the bit out when you are bitten by a snake." One boy prefers a knife to a pair of scissors for that purpose. There is not much originality in a number of the letters-80 per cent, of them might have been written as a paraphrase of the same original, but some of them are well worth a blade if not a whole knife. No boy has struck the fact that the pocket-knife is the modern, concentrated embodiment of the tool that helped savage man on the long and weary road of civilisation. At first it was a sharp stone, or a splintered bone, afterwards a copper axe, but always something l...

Brooks's Annual Competition. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899

Brooks's Unnual Competition. The adjudicators have at last finished their work, and the result of their labour is published below. It has been a long and arduous task, but when the enthusiasm with which the children entered into the competition is taken into considera tion it is one with which we have every reason to be satisfied. Mr. William Brooks, who returns from England on the date of this issue, will at once see about fowarding the prizes to the fortunate winners. The presentation of the extra cer tificates advised by the adjudicators will delay their issue for a little while, as it is our intention to for ward all prizes on the same date. We congratulate the winners on the prizes they have won, and we con gratulate the public school system of New South Wales, which can show such a generally high standard of merit among its students. 23rd October, 1899.

GEOGRAPHICAL FACTS & FANCIES ROC-LORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 28 October 1899

ROC-LOBE. BY GEO. COLLINGRIDGE. Member of the Council of the Royal Geogi-aphical Society of Australasia. T N the first number of THE CHILDREN'S 1 NEWSI-APER, at the foot of tlie middle column on page 12, the following note may be seen :-" A Moa's egg lias recently been found in New Zealand. It had evidently been preserved in clay by the side of a stream." Now why is this little item of news interesting? For several reasons; but principally because the moa is a thing of the past, and also because, like most birds that have become extinct, the moa was of very large size. The finding of large egg? at various times, and in various parts of the world, lias given rise to some strange stories of birds of gigantic proportions, none of which are more interesting than those that relate to the rukh, or, as the name is more commonly written, the roc. These stories are of such marvellous character that the roc has come to be considered as an entirely fabulous creature, although such may not be t...

"DO PRINT FOR ME !" This is what lota of little children say to me when they come with their home lesson, and want a head ing done in what they call printing. I generally oblige them, because I am of an " obliging nat ure " But I would much prefer to see exercise books contain only the pupils own work. No doubt a nicely done heading improves the look of a page ; but if you do not do it yourself the credit is not yours. Any child can learn to do its own " headingsv' if it tries, and here are a few easy specimens to begin with : (fenjjrapljíí. Arithmetic. CANINGS.
