THE STORY OF A BUSHRANGER. By M'D., Gkklong. An old colonist told mo the following story of Captain Melville, tho notorious bushranger, who was for a time the terror of the Western District. One day just before sundown tho captain rode up to the station of a Mr. M'Kinnon, and after giving his hor.se to the care of one of the men, witli strict instructions to look after him, walked boldly into the drawing room, made, himself comfortable in an easy chair, placed his revolver on a small table before him, and rang the boll. Ho told the terrified girl who answered his summons to tell her master that a gentleman desired to speak to him. In a few minutes Mr. M'Kinnon mado his appearance, and was astonished to see a stranger seated with such an air of proprietor ship in his favorite chair. The captain rose, and bowing, said, 'Mr. M'Kinuon, I believe.' 'Yes,' replied Mr. M'Kinnon, 'I hope you will pardon this somewhat unceremonious visit,' continued the- captain, as he played gently with his...

A PAIR OF CHAMPIONS.—SEE PAGE 21. A PAIR OF CHAMPIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

A PAIR OF OEtAMPlQNS.-SBBrAaK21. A PAIR OF CHAMPIONS. Tho opening . match in Melbourne betwoon Lord Sheffield's team and an eleven of Victoria is generally regarded- as the moat noteworthy event in tho cricket annals' of the colony during the past decade. The English team is admittedly tho strongest that has ever visited Australia, and the strength of the combination has already been shown by the decisive manner in which the South Australians were beaten just after they had signally defeated a Victorian eleven in one innings. Notwithstanding the all round strength of Lord Sheffield's team, interest undoubtedly centres in the performances of the champion batsman, Dr. W. G. Grace, who, thuB early in tho tour, has succeeded in compiling a 'cen- tury,' and our illustration shows the famous wielder of the willow at the wickets, another champion, Mr. J. M. Blaokham, of Viotoria, taking his customary position behind them. Each of the players named is at the top of the tree in his departmen...

OUR NEW ZEALAND LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

OUR NEW ZEALAND LETTER. The opponents of the hew system of taxation are leaving not a stone unturned in their endea vors to convince people that the country is ranidly drifting to the dogs ; nnd the campaign whioh they havo begun would certainly do ub a great deal of harm if wo did not know the motives by whioh this handful of pessimists are aotuatcd. Without any justification for what they say, they havo raised the cry that 'capital is loaving thu country,' and tho Conservative press . porsistontly re-echoes tho assertion. Thoso people doludo themselves into the belief that a reaction is near at hand, but a little reflection ought to convince them that all their endeavors to restore conservatism in this coun try will bo futile. Thoir attempts will be im potent so long as tho peoplo retain the ono man ono vote principle, and it would now tako heaven and earth to removo it from tho statutes book, In the personnel of the Government .changes will certainly be made, but ;as for a ohango...

THOREAU AND ALCOTT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

THOREAU AND ALOOTT. By Rose Hawthorne Lathrop. I was about 9 years old and coming sternly to realise that I had been transferred from English homelikeness to American Band banks, when, a little above tho garden nath. I beheld two enormous eyes not far from each other. They moved towards me. I melted away. Thoreau had come to call at tho house. The horrible effect of the great eyeo, grey as autumn pools lit by a rift in the clouds, upon a mind pining for luxurious verdure and gem like blue heavens, created a thirst in mo for the dreadful. I hung about the garden (it was a grim failure of a garden) until tho strange being, native to harsh America, should again emerge for departure. Stationed in tho more retired spot I watched for him, and by and bye ho came. I noticed with transfixed pulses that he strode, clothed in exaggerated dignity, with long stops, placing one foot exactly before the other according to the Indian fashion, which in Thoreau's case was a downright marvel, since his...

SALVATION ARMY MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

SALVATION ARMY MARRIAGES. The great hall of tho Exhibition was paoked with some 7000 people, on 13th Nov., and on ontcring the hall the reason was in stantly to bo appreciated. That piece de resistance of Mr. Booth's entertainment — marriage — is one that has as strong an interest for the fair Salvationist as for hor loss aggros sively professing sister. When tho ' Gonoral' stepped on to the platform tho audienoe, as usual, rose simultaneously to their foot, hundreds of instruments thundered or shrieked a fanfare of welcome, and the drummer surpassed all his previous offort*. Prayer was then engaged in, and then hymns wero sung. The first verse of one was encored, if the expression may be used in oonnection with sacred melody. It seemed to touoh tho Salvationists mightily. It ran — I thank the Saviour who is mighty to keep All dav on Sunday, and six days a weok ; I thank the Saviour who is mighty to keep Fifty-two weeks in the year.

PHOTOGRAPHING LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

PHOTO GRAFKING:LIGjA1.N 1JN O. We reproduce a photograph of a flash of forked lightning, taken by Mr. Robert Law, of the Mint, an amateur photographer, during the storm which took place on tho 29th October. Owing to the duration of a flash of forked light ning being only tho millionth part of a second, it is a rare thing to obtain a picture of one. Mr. Law was on the St. ICilda Esplanado with the shutter of the enmora open, and when the flash occurred he closed it as quiokly as possible. Tho photograph shows a streak of light, much resembling tho branch of a tree in a very twisted condition. Tho direotion of the flash was seaward, and in catching the flash a picture of the Nelson was also obtained. On examina tion it appeared that the flash was tho aamo breadth as the'.Nelson, but as the lightning was some distanco away, 14- miles at least, according to Whoatstono, for it was not accompanied by thunder, it must have bcon, at the smallest computation, greater than the width of the Ne...
