Scientific. GEOLOGY OF ARNHEIM'S LAND, NORTH AUSTRALIA.—No. IV. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 30 March 1889

(Scientific, GEOLOGY OF ARNHEIM'S LAND, HORTH AUSTRALIA.— No. IV. [Et the Rev. J. E. Tenison- Woods, F.L.S., F.G.S., Ac] Anyone who pays attention to the history of the Northern Territory must surely be surprised at the vicissitudes through which it has passed. If we take Into consideration the number of settle' menta that have been made there, and the number of times it has been abandoned, these alone are sufficient to show how various have been the opinions as to lbs value as a colony. The same mutability may be noticed as to the mineral wealtn of the colony. I have beard It said by those whose opinion carried weight, al though they knew little about the matter, that the mines in North Australia were aB a rule valueless, and there was noch« ing else to make the colony pro gress. I am afraid that sentiments of this kind have had a gr-jat Influence on the estimate of mines In the Territory, -« and have kept back capital from working them. Some of these opinions are the result of a r...

HER SITTING ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 30 March 1889

HER SITTING ROOM. H- r sitting-room ! It is a place, Of sweet repose of sanctuary, Pervaded by a woman's grace, And closed to strife and rivalry. There smile her flowers, serene and sweet, And she, the qneen of hearts, is there, Her children playiog at her feet, And rnnniDg races round her chair. The freshness of the sweet spring day mrougu open casements Boiuy iiowb, The breath of 'painted ladies' gay, The honeysuckle and the rose. Though nothing here is rich or rare, This shabby armchair suits my back ; She sings— a soft and plantive air— My books are near— what do I lack? We bar the door to care and gloom, Our ship is moored, its sails are furled. So, from her quiet sitting-room, My wife and I defy the world.

Selected Poetry. WITH NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 30 March 1889

^ ? : Sfeitcteb § oetrg. WITH NATURE. Oft have I joined the reverent bending throng That fill out churches with their prayer and song, And fceard the solemn service float along ; Yet felt bo influence of the Eternal there. The breath I breathed was only common air. Oft have cathedrals wrapped me in their gloom, With shadow pillar and with ghost-like tomb. While altars rolled their chants, their rich perfume ; Yet felt I not the Eternal Presence there. The circling wreathes were still bat scented In forest valleys I have dwelt alone A summer's day, where, mildly overgrown, Ihe boughs -entwine, and moss conceals each stone ; At morn in idle mood I laid me there, At eve I wandered home with awestruck air. And I have paced beside the unbounded sea In gaysome humor, light and gay and free, Till a deep voice grew audible in me — A voice I cannot hear where men repair, Yet grows with lonely sand and salt sea-air. For hour by hour a subtle influence steals, And deeperiB inward till my spiri...

That it is not those always that make the most noise Who are bearing the brunt and tbe strife. That it is not the men who make the most show Whose account is the largest in bank : There are many rich men who, you never would know By their looks, they with millionaires rank. There are those who are giants, to judge by their talk. Who when judged by their deeds are quite small. Half the town they must own you would think by their walk. Yet they own not a stick of it all. They will tell of the battles they fought in past dayB, They brag of their prowess and might. And they blow their own trumpets and sound their own praise, Though they never smelt powder nor fight. I would have you be careful and weigh in the scales Of a cIobc observation each one ; Or you'll find in the future — Ihe rule never fails— That you'll oft be decidedly d...

THE WHITE PASHA. IBy Noeah Brooks, in St. Nicholas.] (Concluded ) very soon, as they drew near the coast, in the hitter part of the summer of 1877, sickness and famine pressed hard upon the weary travellers. They were destitute of nearly everything that could sustain nature. They could not buy of the churlish natives, and starvation stared them in the face. Knowing that a trading- post was established at Embomma, two days' journey do va the river, Stanley decided to write a letter on an old piece of drilling, and send it by several of his ewif test runners. The letter was written in simple, direct lan guage, and was eloquent by its very simplicity. Stanley briefly stated tha condition and sire of this party which had j tusc traversed aeon tinent, and epoke of them as bsing threatened with absolute starvation unless food could bs bad within a day or two at most, saying that their own stores were grae; that they could buy none with the merchandise thry carried, and that there was noth...

SATURDAY, MARCH 30, 1889. THE FIRE AT THE COFFEE PALACE. The destructive fire which occurred at the Coffee Palace in Hlndley- street on Friday week was attended by a sad Iobb of life, the more to be regretted as the gentleman -who perished in the flames might easily have escaped. It is probable that it waB in the endeavor to save others from tbe burning building that the late Mr. Taplin lost bis life. He appears to have imagined that in the confusion one of the boarders had been overlooked, and he re turned into the midst of danger vrith the object of accomplishing a rescue. If this be the true explanation of his conduct hla death was a useless sacrifice, for with the exception of himself all the boarders succeeded In escaping from the flames. The feeling of deep sorrow naturally ex cited by the tragic termination of so honor able and useful a career as that of Mr. Taplin is mitigated only by a sense of the heroism he displayed. A life of disin terested missionary labor, to which hi...
