An Oriental Scourge Russian Turkestan is being swept by a dreadful plague. In Samarkand seventy doctors died from the plague. It is now fading out.

South Sea Kings. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899

South Sea Kings. Samoa, in the Navi gator Islands, is the centre of great trouble at present. Instead of being ruled by one power, or by the natives themselves, the islands are governed by three powers-England, Germany, and America. There are rival kings and rival interests, and life is unhappy for all. The Navigator Islands are in the South Pacific Ocean, and have an area of about 100,000 square miles, with a popu lation of less than 40,000.

A Big Blast. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899

A Bií? Blast. On Saturday, Feb. 11 > there was a great ex" plosion at the Govern" nient quarry, Ardglen, four miles from Murrurundi, Ñ.S.W. A large amount of rock was required for railway ballast, and instead of digging it out, it was blasted out. The men dug a tunnel about 60 feet into the hill, and then dug another tunnel at right angles to that. In that tunnel they placed two tons of blasting powder. 7 cwt. of the new explosive amberite, and about half a ton of dynamite. W hen this had been all securely fastened in or " tamped," as they call it, an electric battery was used to set it on fire. When it exploded fche noise was not great, but the shock dislodged about 70,000 tons of rock. This will take the men five or six months to remove.

Captain Dreyfus. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899

Captain Dreyfus. In France there is sore trouble at pre sent. A military officer named Drey fus, a Jew, and a relative of the great Rothchilds, was accused of selling military secrets to the Germans. He was tried by a mili tary court, found guilty, degraded from his rank, publicly expelled from the army, and sent to a foreign colony as a convict. Now it appears that he was the victim of a con spiracy, and that his accusers were military men, some of whom had been selling military secrets. The case is being re-tried, and France is in a ferment. All good people deplore the miscarriage of justice for there has been one-and the re sults may embroil France in civil war

PEACE OR WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899

PEACE OR WAR. HIS world of ours is in a state of unrest. Australia is a land that lies beyond the fever of the armed states, but we, from our position in the sunny Southern seas, can watch the warlike peoples. The Czar of Russia asks all the nations to meet and discuss how they can put an end to war. The armies and the navies of the nations are so large that the men who pay for them - the producers - are nearly ruined, and poverty abounds in all the great cities. The editor of the Remera of Reviews has seen and talked to the Czar on the subject, and the Press is helping on the cause of peace. The young people in Australia cannot do much to help on the good cause of universal peace, but they can do something. They can ask their fathers and mothers why the nations go to war !

'Twixt Nose and Eyes a Strange Conflict Arose. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899

'Twixt Nose and Eyes a Strange Conflict Arose. BY THOMAS COWPER. "D ET WEEN Nose and Eyes a strange contest arose, The spectacles set them unhappily wrong ; The point in dispute was, as all the world knows, To which the said spectacles ought to belong. So Tongue was the lawyer, and argued the couse With a great deal of skill, and a wig full of learning ; While Chief Baron Ear sat to balance the laws, So famed for his talent in nicely discerning. " In behalf of the Nose it will quickly appear, And your lordship," he said, "will undoubtedly find, That the Nose has had spectacles always in wear, Which amounts to possession time out of mind." Then holding the spectacles up to the court - " Your lordship observes they are made with a straddle, As wide as the ridge of the nose is ; in short, Design'd to sit close to it, just like a saddle. " Again, would your lordship a moment suppose ('Tis a case that has happen'd, and may be again) That the visage or countenance had not a Nose, Pray who...

EMPIRE BUILDERS. CECIL RHODES. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899

EMPIRE BUILDERS -?-, CECIL RHODES. I. TD ET WEEN twenty and thirty years ago, the visitor to the Kimberley Diamond Fields, then in the baby stage, might have seen a tall, carelessly dressed English youth sitting on an upturned bucket, and watching a gang of Kathi's breaking and sifting the yellow stuft' in which the diamonds were hidden. He had dreamy eyes, they say, and he often read a book, or seemed lost in thought ; but for all that his glance was keen and shrewd. Litle passed that he did not see and turn over to good purpose in his restless brain. His face was tanned by the South African sun, and to the careless passer-by he seemed but an ordinary mining ganger, whose sole thoughts were occupied in pre venting the dusky laborers from pocketing gems from the "opulent dirt " they shook through their sieves. Some few who knew him, however, foretold great things of this practical dreamer of dreams. They were right. The man who sat on the bucket was Cecil Rhodes : the book he had on...

The French Republic. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899

The French Republic. The President of the French Republic died suddenly last Thurs day niidit. His name was Francois Felix Faure. He was 58 years old, a Roman Catholic, and a good, simple man. His father was an upholsterer, and Felix himself began life as a poor boy, with little education. He was an apprentice to a tanner. He educated himself after he left school, a thing that very few boys have manly grit enough to do. He studied a great deal, and rose in the world. He wrote books, and became a soldier for a while, as all Frenchmen have to. During the war with Germany, in 1870, he showed himself to be brave and clever. France is England's old enemy. We have fought the French for hundreds of years. They are the near neighbours of our race at home. Sometimes we have fought along with the French, against someone else, but not often. France has been a republic since the war with Germany, and the President has to be elected. The President before M. Faure was assasinated. The new Preside...

AESOP. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 6 March 1899

/ESOP. NCE upon a time, a very long time ago-hundreds of years before Christ was born in Beth lehem, there lived a poor slave, named ^Esop. He used to tell' little stories, and all his stories had a meaning to them. He said that the beasts and the birds and the fishes talked to each other. He said that the trees and the flowers and the wind and the sun all talked, and he told the Greeks what they said. The stories were so simple and wonderful that they were written down, and to-day we have " .¿Esop's Fables," and they are as true to-day as when the poor slave told them, 2,500 years ago. Here is one of the stories : THE VAIN JACKDAW. A jackdaw, as vain and conceited as a jackdaw could be, picked up the feathers which some peacocks had shed, stuck them amongst his own, and, despising his old friends, tried to pass himself off as a peacock among the peacocks. They instantly detected the fraud, stripped him of his borrowed plumes, and, falling upon him with their beaks, sent him about h...
