A COLONY'S STORY TOLD ON STAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 29 January 1902

A COLONY'S STORY TOLD ON STAMPS. Postago stamps arc not often made tho voliiclo for conveying to the outside world tho history of tho resources of a country. To Bir William Whiteway and the Hon. Itobert Bond, of Newfoundland, must thorcfore bo acoroditcd a very brilliant idea. It is nn idea that one marvels at not having odturred to other colony-makers and nation-builders be fore. Instead of a portrait of President Kruger, for cxatnplo, on the Transvaal stamps, wo should have a set exhibiting first, the British white flag of surrender; second, a precious atone in the aec of being un earthed at Witwatersrand; a Boer defying a Briton, &.C., &c.

ELIZABETHAN WRITERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 29 January 1902

ELIZABETHAN WRITERS. The age of Elizabeth w»i distinguished beyond, perhaps, any other in our history by •. number of great men, famous in different ways, and whose names have come down to us with unblemished honour: statesmen, poets, warriors, divines, soholars, and philoso phers; Raleigh, Drake, Oolce, Hooker, and—high and more sounding still, and still more frequent in our mouths— Shakespeare, Spenser,-Sidney, Bacon, Johnson, Beaumont and Fletcher, men whom fame has eternised in her long and lasting scroll, and who; by their words and acts, were benefactors of their country and ornaments of human nature. Their attainments of diflerent > kinds bore the ssme general stamp, and it was sterling ; what they did' had the mark of their age and country upon it. Perhaps the genius of Great. Britain never shone out fuller or brighter or looked more like itself, than at this period. Our writers and great men had something in them that savoured of the Soil from which they grew :'they were...

DUST IN SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 29 January 1902

DUST IN SPACE. Some of the oldeit record* of human history contain accounts of the fall of great atonei from the iky. Until the opening of last century it waa generally believed by men of acience that the ancients only imagined that they had seen rocks fall out of the heavens. Modern science, however, has verified the truth of the ancient records, and we now know not only • that atones and metallio masses, called aerolitea or meteorites, do come tumbling down out of space, but that a fine duet, called oosmic dust, is continually sifting down through the atmosphere. It is like the smoke and dust of a journey, for the earth ia really journeying, along with the sun, toward the northern part of the universe, and as it goes it draws in with its attraction the refuse particles that apparently exist throughout spaoe. But while there, can be no doubt of the existence of .this silent rain of minute matter upon the earth, the difficulty has been to recognise it after it, reaches the ground. O...

DON JOHN OF AUSTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 29 January 1902

DOM JOHN OF AUSTRIA. History affords no more pathetic example of the caprice of fortune than the career of the low-horn son of the mighty emperor, Oharlea V., who, at tnenty-iour, had been pronounced by Alva the greatest general since Julius Cmsar. The laurel* of Lepanto were ■till fresh upon hi* brow when Philip intrusted to him the great work of pacifying the Netherlands; and the Pope, eoiifiding to him the interests of the Ohurch, tempted his chivalrous ambition with the hope of freeing the! captive Queen of Scots, and sharing with her the throne of the heretical Elizabeth. . . Idolized by his soldiers, beloved by his friends for his generous traits, and admired for hia personal fascinations and warlike proweBS, the infatuated Crusader, un fitted for difficult administrative duties, was doomed to reap in the Netherlands the baleful results of their previous bad government. Yet amid all his trials he scorned to turn, as the king's other governors had done, the hand of the assassin...

FRIGHTENED. He was out onco lion-shooting in Knttin war. In some parte of the district, where it is tolerably open, tho sportsmen used to follow tho game on horseback, ride within range, and then dismount to get a shot, un less the beasts were steady enough to stand Are from their backs. After tliey shot they quickly remounted and galloped off. On one occasion my friend had turned up a couple of full-grown lions, and was following them on tho plain. He managed to get within range,and as his horse would not stand quiet enough for him to fire from his back, jumped off, and throw tho bridle over his arm; by 801110 chance, however, omitting to slip his hand through it. Well, he got a fair shot, and hit one of the lions; but tho noise startled the horse, and, as there was nothing to chcek it, away it galloped, leaving my friend standing. He fired the second barrel, and then had tho horror of seeing the wounded lion como charging down towards him, all head, tail, and legs, ami roaring tre...
