CYCLING SPORTS. Tho Austral whocl raoe, tho groatost cycling event in Australia, was decidod on the 21st Nov. on tho Melbourne cricket ground. Though tho 12,000 pnoplo who assembled to witness tho raco did nut compare with tho nuinbor which assembled laRtyoar, whon it wns cut minted that ovor 20,000 woro present, tho sooond largoab field on record started, and of the 43 competitors no one was less fancied as having a chance to win than Turner, who won. Ho ran prominently throughout until about a hundred ynrds from home, when he made a brilliant effort and loft the rest of the field almost as if they were standing still, and won by a dozen yards. Turner is only 18 years of age, and has taken to cyoling about three year*.

MOUNT COOK AND THE "HERMITAGE." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

MOUNT COOK AND THE ' HERMITAGE.' Tho Southorn Alps, in which Mount Cook is situated, have lons- boon hold to bo peerless out side tho Arctic Cirole. Aorangi (tho native name, meaning 'cloud piercer'), thanks to tho exertions of Mr. Green, Dr. Von Lendenfeld and others who havo explored tho glaciers, is not the terra incorjnitu- that it was. In tho proper season numorous parties of tourists visit the locality, and for their convenience the Govern ment has recently erected the buildings shown in our illustration. Tho ascont of Mount Cook is rendered peculiarly difficult by tho presence of glaciers, tho most notable of which, the Tac inan, is over 11,000 foot abovo tho sea level. Soon from various points of view, Mount Cook improsses tho beholder with its mas.si vo grandeur. Flanked by noble mounts, each cappod with never melting hiiow, yet towering abovo them all, tho ' cloud piercor' stands a monument of ' how earth may pioroo to iieavon, yot loavo vain man bolow. '

THE WINNER OF THE QUEEN'S PRIZE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

THE WINN12R OF THE QUEEN'S PRIZE. At the meeting of tho Victorian Riilu Associa tion this year tho big prize was won by Corporal T. Kirk, of tho Williamstown Garrison Artil lery, who has proved himself tho host shot of tho meeting, winning tho Quoon's, tho grand aggregate drat prizo and V. R.A. gold modal, the Freeman aggrogiUo, tho N.R.A. silver medal and other prizes, amounting to about £150, apart from the value of the medals. . Corporal Kirk was leading in the second stage with 201, and he also topped the scoring in tho third stage. He practically won the match at 800 yards, where he made 41 out of a possible 50, and aggregated 242, and as the next below him was Mr. Angus M 'Donald, with 223, giving him a lend of 19, nothing but a pitiful breakdown at 909 yards could have lost him the prize. He won by 15 points with 276, as against the 261 of Mr. I* de Grand!, who broke down at 800 yard*. Lieutenant Kales finished third with 256, two points more than his winning soore of last ye...

AN ENCOUNTER WITH AN OSTRICH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

AN ENCOUNTER WITH AN OSTRICH. In a scries of striking sketches our artist has depicted the troubles of a certain surveying party who wore engaged on a large farm in South Australia devoted to ostrich raising. As is tolerably well known — at least to those who have had anything to do with them — ostriches are creatures possessed of a moat uncertain temper. Sometimes a man may venture into tho midst of a large flock, and. retire without discomfiture. At others mem bers of the selfsame flock may prove cantankerous, and rush upon any intruder who has had the temerity to get among them. Knowing this characteristic, African ostrich farmers never approach their charges unless armed with a stout thorny fringed cudgel, on imploment which, curious to relate, the birds view with a wholesome fear. However, to return to our surveyors. In happy ignorance ot tho impending scrimmage, we see them approaching hostile territory, soon to encounter a squad of the 'enomy,' one of whioh shows suoh unmista...

WINNERS OF THE AUSTRAL WHEEL RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

WINNERS OF THE AUSTRAL. WHEEL RACE. Wo are pleased to be able to present to our readers a photp. group of the winners of tho Austral Wheel Race, the premier bicycling event of tho colon ion. The race was first run over a two mile course in 1887, when it was won by H. H. La-nbton, of Now South Wales, who had a start of 210 yards. In the following year R. Davis, a South Australian rider, starting from scratch, succeeded in catching tho judjio's eye. In 1889 another Adelaide rider, .T. .T. Mullins, finished in front. He had a start ot 110 yards and put up tho record for the race, viz., 5 min. 36 1-5 sec. The first Victorian to win tho big money was last year's victor, T. W. Busst, who started from scratch. Having just recovered from illness Busst was unable to com pote this year. We believe, however, it is his intention to toko part in the Christchurch (New Zealand) meeting in December, when be will be pitted against all the foremost riders of tho sister colony. A.

HOLIDAY EXCURSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

HOLIDAY EXCURSIONS. There are holidays and holidays. Thousands of Victorians were out on 9th Nov. trying loyally . to enjoy themselves, but the weather was such that many mar be imagined spending their hours of recreation in the practice of the domestic virtues. The sports meetings, fishing excursions and picnics that took place ?were conducted under difficulties, and no doubt the foundation of many a severe rheumatic pain and destructive influenza -wa3 well and truly laid. A soldier is supposed to care little for the elements, so the able fellows who camped oat on the bleak plains of the Werribee and .tramped about the wet grass at Sunbury and Lancefield do not need one's sympathy.' They- followed Oliver Cromwell's maxim, to trust in God and keep your powder dry, for by all accounts they accomplished some very effective shooting, both with rifles and artillery. It is a little to be regretted that Lancefield is such an inconvenient place for the average Melbourne citizen to get to, ...

AUSTRALIAN ART EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

AUSTRALIAN ART EXHIBITION. Tho annual exhibition at the National Gallery was opened by his Excellency the Gover nor -on Tuesday, 17th November, at 3 o'clock. In response to tho offer by tho trustoes ' of four separata prizes for tho best paintings by artists residing in Victoria, the .latter sont in 146 works for exhibition. Of those 54 oil paintings and 14 water color drawings have been hung. Sixty oil paintings and IS water color drawings wore rejeoted. Tho students have sent in for thuir annual exhibition 86 oil painting* and 145 water color drawings. One is struck on entering the gallery with tho somewhat incongruous collection of paintings sent in ostensibly to compete for the prizes above mentioned. One can hardly doubt that a number of exhibitors have looked upon tho present occa sion merely as a pretext for exhibiting works of very slight interest and importance. Tho actual number of pictures whioh can be regarded as any way worthy to compete for the prizes is very small. Im...

The Spring Meeting of tho Victoria Racing Club was oontinueil at Flemington on Nov. 5, in tho presence of a fairly numerous assemblage of spectators. Beautiful weather prevailed, and with good racing tho afternoon was thoroughly enjoyable.

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

The weather during the past month has been of an extremely changeable character. It has been generally very cold, tho thermometer fre quently falling to 40 deg., whilo a few hot days have occurred, when tho temperature in the shade rose to noarly 90 dog. in some parts. Light showers were somewhat frequent during the early part of the month, but by tho middle the soil had become xather dry ; however, in the third week thunder storms and hoavy rain pro vailed, whioh moistened the land sufficiently, but, unfortunately it battered down some of tho wheat crops. The low temperature did not muoh uffoot the growth of coreals, glasses, or the hardier kinds of vegetables, but tho progress of the more tender kinds waB somewhat checked. The hay crops are good, the harvest in progress ing whenever the weather will permit ; in the earlier districts it is nearly finished ; oats have been cut and marketed, and the wheat harvest is commencing in tho oarliost districts.

SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

JLsJ^ iiTCtfEWT'^ The Constitution Act Amendment Bill, whoso objcots when originally introduced were in the main to abolish plural voting and confer the Parliamentary franchise on femalos, is likely, to cause much trouble between both Houses, and possibly may ultimately bo dropped for the session. As 'the' bill - left the lower chamber, its main provision was that reUting to the one man one voto principle. In other words, it was sought to disqualify every man from casting more than ono vote, under any circumstances, at an: elec tion. When it reached the Upper House, there was a general outcry against the measure, and even tho Council members of the Ministry sym pathised witii the opponents of the bill, and declared that they would have none of it. The only voioo raised on the Liberal side in favor of the measure was Mr. Melville, who under all circumstances expresses hid political opinions without reserve. But his arguments were unavailing. The interests of. property were tound dear...

CAPTURED BY PIRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

CAPTURED BY PIRATES. By Clahknok Pullen. On the morning of lfath September, 1738, with tho sun half way to tho zenith, the trim schooner Dol])hin forged southward. A gentle southerly breeze rippled the smooth Caribbean waters, and St. Tliomns, her port, lay only 24 hours' sail away. Here she was to discharge and load cargo, ami hence shape her homeward course towards Boston. Captain Archibald Knowlton walked his quarter-deck briskly, for ho was beginning to enjoy the relief from anxiety felt on Hearing port safo from disaster by storm or pirate. Tornadoes and hurricanes were less to bo dreaded than tho fierce outlaws that in thoso days haunted tho seas wherever merchant vessels sailed. ' Dead men toll no tales ' was thoir maxim with prisoners, and every mer chant captain know well that the capture of his Hhip by pirates meant that those of his company taken alive would bo made to ' walk tlu1. plank.' Tho Yankee skipper whistled cheerfully as ho looked to windward, where a long, shar...
