THE LADIES COLUMN [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

THE LADIES COLUMN Cake fairs liavo nttained groat importnnco of lato year!!, nnd the fashion of introducing prize competitions still possesses' the charm of novelty. The cako fair, lamp shade, flower and sachet contest, which was held in the Melbourne Town Hall recently, .was particularly popular and successful. To begin with, the object was one which attracted pnblio sympathy, viz., the raising of funds to assist the Social Improve ment, Friendly Help and Children's Aid Society of the Australian Church ; and then the list of the committee and stall holders included most influential names. Mr. J. M. Bruce was chairman, and his name is regarded as being synonymous with success in all such under takings. On Wednesday, 25th Nov.. when the fair was opened, the hall was crowded, and throughout the evening the attendance was very good.

SWEET GIRL GRADUATES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

SWEET GIRL GRADUATES. The two young ladies whose portraits we give in this issue are the first who have completed their medical course at the Melbourne University. Miss Grace Clara Stone is a native of Tas mania, and was the first lady who entered her name as a student of medicine at the University, and we congratulate her and Miss Whyte on having attained their goal. Both ladies took their degree of Bachelor of Medicine at the last examination, and though their plans are not yet definitely formed it is understood that they will both commence practice in Melbourne after some further study. It is probable that Miss Stone may join lior sister, Dr. E. Constance Stone, who is already established in Collins street and who has a large practice. Miss Margaret Whyte, who is the daughter of Mr. P. Whyte, late head master of the Model Schools, Spring-street, has two sisters who have both had a brilliant career at the University, where they have distinguished themselves in various branches.

HISTORY OF THE MOAS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 December 1891

HISTORY OF THE MOAS. Bv OFESSOK F. W. HUTTON. The moas belong to a group of birds called ratitæ, to which also belong the ostrich, the rhea, the emu, the cassowary and the kiwi. They are all birds with rudimentary wings, soft fluffy feathers and adapted for terrestrial life. Professor T. J. Parker has conclusively proved that the ratites are descended from flying birds. The structure of their diminutive wings and the oellular character of their bones are evidence that tho ancestors of the ratites could fly, but these flying ancestors must have lived a very long time ago, probably in the early part of the eocene period. That the moas have been a long time in New Zealand is certain. In addition to the immense number of bones found in peat beds and river alluvia of pleistocene age, remains have boon found near Napier and probably also near Wanganui, which belong to the newer pliocene period. The bones of a small species of moa, found 2 yours ago under a lava stream at Timaru, are still...

THE TASMANIAN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

Thr Tasmanian Court, The Tasmanian oourt has had naturally a large amount of space alloted to its exhibits, tho most oonspioioug of which' is perhaps the exhibit of splashed tin from the Mount Bisohoff mine, forming a pyra mid, the base of whioh is formed of ingots. Silver and copper oros are also plenti fully displayed, whilst a model of the Mount Bischoff crushing battery completes a most interesting exhibit. The prinolpal silver and gold mines are well represented, tho New Pinafore Gold Mining Company sending the results of their last crushing in the shape of a cake of solid retorted gold. The west coast mines are woll represented, by ^'companies of private exhibits. The Fingal coal companion, the Daverton, and othors all contribute coal trophies, but they do not show to great advan tage beside tho Newcastle produots. In boer and soap and othor local industries there are artistio and meritorious displays. :; ' Timber and forest woods are advertised through the medium of the. magn...

THE NEW SOUTH WALES COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

The New South Wales Court. ? The New South Wales oourt, adjoining that of Viotoriu, occupies a similar amount of space. A prominent exhibit, that of a well executed cyoloramio view of the Broken Hill silver mines, ocoupying the whole of the wall apaoe, and set in a miniature theatre at the end of tho court, is one of the moat notioeablo contributions to the exhibition. A miniature mine, constructed below the flooring of the -court, gives a lifelike and renlistio idea of the mines of the silver fields. The painting has been very carefully executed, by a Sydney artist, and Mr. Vivian, the exeou- : tive commissioner, has been at great pain's to soo that a faithful portrayal of the mines was givon. On each side of the' oourt is an arch way, ono of whioh leads into the Viotorian oourt, and contains a rioh collection of ores. Tho other, leading into the Tasmanian court, Rtrikes the eye as being constructed in an ex tremely nrtktio manner. A really splendid dis play of minerals has been fo...

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

?HI The weather during the past month has not, upon the whole, been favorable for harvest operations. It is now found that the yields will not be nearly so great as was oxpeoted in the beginning of tho month, when tho crops looked remarkably well everywhere ; but when stripping commonced it was found that many of the crops yielded little more than half what appearances indicated, while tho samples were not first olass, and certainly inferior to those of last year, though the results of tho harvest had boon -awaited with confidence. The rough weather had knocked about and injured many of the crop* to a serious extent, a largo pro portion of white unfruitful heads having boon found, attributed, at any rate in somo part, to an extremely hot day which ocourrod in Ootober while the wheat was in blossom: In the Loddon and Avoca districts, whore 25 to 30 bushels, per aoro was expeoted, not more than half that quantity was obtained.

In tho year 1883 an exhibition of a puroly loco! character was hold at Hobart, and. whilst on a visit to that placo tho present mayor of Launceston, Alderman Sutton, conceived the idea of formulating a similar scheme to be carried out in his own city. This idea was at once put into practical shape, and would have been attended with definite results had it not boen for the labor crises, which disturbed Tasmania ns well as the other colonies. However, in Ma roll last the Govern ment woro induced to grant a supplementary vote towards the building, and relying upon this, . Mr. Joubort was interviewed at Sydney, and ho agreed to tako tho general management of the presont affair, so that after seven years of patient labor and waiting the ' exhibition recently opened saw. the lig...

THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

WfiiSSsMism Thin month has been the dullest of the year, in relatjon to theatrioal affairs. The depression.' in business has had its usual effeot upon the' attendance, and, although the attractions in every case have been far in advance of what is*.' aooorded at this season, the public -did not seem to appreciate the efforts of mana gers to provide the very best pabulum. At the. Royal, Mr. Bentley lias been gradually gaining in public estimation. His representation of Mathiax, in The Bells— Mr. Irving's great part, —was very favorably commented on by the press, and in Shakspearian revivals he was': oredited something more than a mere sue oil d'estime. His Hamlet was in por tions faulty, being considered artificial and melodramatic, but as Othello he manifested powers fand histrionio capabilities for whioh he had not previously been oredited. On the whole, thix gentleman may be well content that' he should have received in a general way com- '? mendation from a most critical press in...

Aquatic sport is not highly favored by the Victorian. publio, and a , large attendance of spectators was not expected to witness the race, but .the muster, upon the steamers . and . upon , the banks of the ;, river, at .
