Indeed, won without the greedy atrlfe and

country beneath the Southern Croaa the
course of our good ship the Ventura was
directed. The twenty-flrat dax the hour of
expectation came when the Australian
coaat should loom up. But the ahadea of
night fell and found the anxloua eye of
many peering out through the misty gloom
for some light, the welcome algn of land.

deep hoarse voice of the lookout for'ard

solemn voice sang out "Light ahead!" It
waa the famous Hornby light on Sydney
Heads, visible at sea for nearly fifty miles.

biting cold of that winter morning to look
Upon' a light flashing nut through the dark

Dann on the Australian Coast.
' When the first soft streaks of dawn were
coloring the Australian aklea the Ventura
passed between two bold, lofty headlands
Into one of the finest and most capacious
harbors In the world, the harbor of Sydney.
Gradually the morning brightened and re
vealed the headlands, hills and bays In all
their refreshing loveliness, while the aky
above became tinted with the most delicate
and exquisite coloring. Here It must be
confessed waa the most beautiful dawn we
have ever seen. Guarding the harbor mouth
were two glnnt frowning walla of rock,
over which the golden beams of the early
morning sun were Just stealing. The anchors
dropped, the voyage ended and soon we
were ashore In a land of rare and strange
contradictions, where eagles are black and
awana white, where kangarooa have four
legs, but run upon two only. A land atrange
Indeed where Christmas comes In midsum

south? where the sun shines while we
sleep and the trees shed the bark and not

bountifully cast her favors fiver a country
less than one-nfth amaller than the whole
of Europe, providing at the same time all
those needed resources that are used In
the process of building up a great nation
and assuring It also of future prosperity,
greatne and Independence. For auch de
velopment Australia possesses, with a mild
seml-troplrnl illmnle, a pure soil of great
fertility and a magnificent coart line In
dented with the finest liurbors, and above
oil this sunshine and skies that rival even
. Xoted Features of Sydney.
Sydney, our port tf arrival, capital of
New South Wales and largest city In Aus
tralia, has a population of about Cin.nnn.
The thing that Impress one most favorably
about Sydney are It's, beautiful harbor, a
fine beach at Manly, a world-famed botan
ical garden and the charming Farramatta.
river. The rsotanlcal gardens are worthy
of some passing mention. Situated in the'
center of the city they are classed among
the finest In the world. These gardens com
prise about fifty acres and are laid nut In
terracea leading down to the shorea of the
bay. Plants and treea are found here from
every part of the world. Though It was
July and midwinter, yet I found roses,
pansles, fuchiaa, tulips. lilies and gera
niums clothed In a wealth of gorgeous
coloring and growing In the open air.
There were also some fine specimens of the
giant fern tree, which grow to the height
of fifteen feet or more, while exactly re
sembling the small common fern. The
principal buildings of note In Sydney are
the city hall, pontoffice. art gallery, free
public library, a university and two cnthe
drala. St. Mary's Catholic cathedral and
St. Andrew'a Episcopal are two tine ex
amples of Gothic architecture. The univer
sity, also of Gothic design, overlooks the
city from high elevated grounds. This In
stitution gives a liberal course of education
to all without creed distinction.
Walking through the streets of Sydney,
or In fact any city In the commonwealth,
one meets no algn of being In a strange,
foreign country. On the contrary, every
thing seems to have an air of the old
world about It, serving to remind one of
Bnpland. Tho people are English In their
habits and customs. The public buildings
are English In style and many of them out
of date In architecture. Barrooms and that
other regrettable English Importation, bar
maids, are to be found meeting one every
where. Such an occupation for woman
place. her at once outside her proper
sphere. Though well aware of many evils
at home, we In America have too much re
spect for our women to allow them to be
come aervera of beer or dlahers of whisky.
On the streets one also sees a great deal of
the rags and remnants of former respect
ability, who, shameless, unahaved and dirty,
parade the streets with soles flapping from
,hoes and with no remarkable adornment
save a red nose. These professional boocers
are found loitering, laxy and thlrsty
tongited. outside every barroom. Such
specimens of humanity are a degradation
and a disgrace to the country.
Amerlrnn War In Melbourne.
Melbourne Is a fine city that must
Impress every visitor. Tossesslng broad,
well laid-out streets, magnificent churches,
large warehouses and public buildings of
modern design. It Is not surpassed by any
city In the colonics. The Melbourne people
adopt American methods more quickly and
agreeably than their Sydney neighbors.
They are extremely polite, sociable and
warm-hearted. Indeed this Is a trait that
belongs to the colonial people as a whole.
One cannot travel In that country without
making friends; nor can he leave It without
carrying away the most happy Impressions
of a people who have always time to be
courteous, kind and friendly. Combined
with this the colonial people are lovers of
home life. They cultivate It. The women,
too, are more domesticated than ours.
Home life and domestic attachment after
all play no unimportant part In the life of
a nation. It this respect must we admire
the colonials, and regret that the bustle
and excitement of a great Industrial and
commercial life in America has somewhat
smothered the finer appreciation of home
life with ltB kindred-blessing, domestic
attachment. Perhaps In these character
istics the Australian people possess the
keynote to more harmony and ease In
everyday life, more happiness In the home,
and more genuine satisfaction with life
"An Australian Woman In America" has
lately written some very condescending arti
cles about her travels In America. It la well
known already that railroad travel In Amer
ica Is the finest and fastest In the world.
Tet this colonial woman found there was
"nothing extraordinary about tho observ
ation car on a New York Central train;"
that "meals In the dining cars cost a dol
lar," and that "you pay for a colored at
tendant who doesn't wait on you, that the
barber shop on the train Is for mere men,
and that there was really nothing superior
In American trains to Australian trains."
A alight acquaintance with Australian
trains lately convinced me that no compari
son can be made between the two. The rail
ways In Australia are controlled by the
government, and like all governmental
affairs they are alow. They have no ob
servation cars, dining cars, or even
Pullman parlor cars with all their familiar
conveniences. No barber's shop Is found
on the best Australian train; perhaps they
had them for "mere women." Two trains
run dally between Sydney and Melbourne.
The distance Is 582 miles. The mall train,
the slower of the two, takes twenty-seven
hours to make the journey, while the other
express takes eighteen hours, or same time
as the New York Central Flyer travela 1,000
miles between New York and Chicago. The
most Improved trains In the colonies are
modeled after American trains, and even
then we must be timid in making comparison.
Time In Australia Is the same as else
where, nut the people are slow. They
take lire easy without hurry or bustle.
Rualness begins at 9 a. m. and punctuality
la rare. That age of progresslveness has
not yet arrived when railroad guides are to
be found free of nrcess to all In the reading
room of every hotel. Stamps bought In one
Australian state are, of no use In another
There are a thousand and one opportuni
ties for greater progress and Improvement
on all sides, but the people have not yet
awakened to the fact that there Is crying
need for a more strenuous every-day life
In their midst.
Country at a Stnndatlll.
Australia Is world-famous on account of
Its gold mines, coal fields and Its sheep
grazing. Gold, silver. Iron and copper are
found In the mountains lnexhnust Ible In
quantity and rich In quality. The principal
coal mines are found In New South Walea
and Queensland, between Brisbane and
Sydney. The New Castle mines are of audi
vast proportions that a whole fleet tf
steamers and Billing ships are employed In
carrying away the enormous and dally out
put of coal.
Sheep graxlng Is carried on extensively,
the land being well adapted for the pur
pose. T'pon the sheep runs, aa they are
called, Immense numbers of sheep are kept
graslng. It Is not uncommon for one man
to own 20,000 to 30.000. In a aeaaon of
drouth great numbers of theae animals
perish, the ownera Buffering frequently
financial ruin. The natural conditions of
the country are, however, otherwlae so
favorable that at present over 8.000,000
head of cattle, l.iinO.OOO horses and 65.000,000
sheep are amply fed by the Australian
graxlng fields, while In the vegetable world
oata, rye and wheat, besides the choicest
tropical fruits, such as the orange, the
olive and the grape find easy growth and
Notwithstanding conditions so favorable,
men are to be found Idle all over the
country. Many, Indeed, are willing to
work without wages In order to obtain food
to eat. Every ship leaving Sydney for
America brings large numbers of Aus
tralian young men, who, discouraged with
life at home, have resolved to try a land
where so many have gone before them
and aucceeded. Among them are ma
chinists, carpenters, tailors, engineers,
clerks and various other occupations,
they are men of bone and muscle, the very
life blood of the country they are leaving.
The obstacles that seem to He In the way
of Australia's development are want of
population, dry seasons and bad govern
ment. Yet In spite of these drawbacks
some measure of praise must be given to
the people who have bo far helped to
build up the country. Industrious and
busy seaports surround the continent on
every side, railroads connect the Inland
towns with the coast cities, and the tele
graph and telephone have Invaded some
of the wildest solitudes of the Australian
bush. VICTOR T. NOONAN.
Some Quaint Features of Current Life
Eceentrlo to tbe Finish.
HE most remarkable burial on rec
ord In Illinois was that of W. B.
McClelland of Peoria county,
which occurred recently In a cem
etery near Elwood. No hearse
conveyed the remains to The last resting
place; no minister of the gospel stood over
the bier; no relatives were present and no
mourners assisted In the final rites. Tha
Interment, however, was exactly In con
formity with the dying request of the de
cedent and of the wishes frequently ex
pressed by him during the remaining years
of his life.
For flfteen years McClelland waa engaged
In business at Nokomls, 111. Recently he
became 111 and was Informed that his days
were numbered. He betrayed no emotion
over the Information, but aent for two
residents of Nokomls. John Thorp and
R. C. Hanlon, to whom ha Imparted his
lost wishes. He swore them to compliance
by a solemn oath and they regarded his
last requests, atrange and unaccountable
as they appeared, aa sacred. The Instruc
tions were as follows:
First That no undertaker should embalm
hla body or have anything to do with It.
Second That no car wheels should .turn
under his coffin.
Third That he should have a metallic)
casket, which should be placed In a spe
cially constructed vault.
Fourth That his remains should be in
terred In the cemetery at Elmwood, Pe
Fifth That no preacher should be around
when he was laid at rest.
Sixth That no hearse ahould be used.
Seventh That none of his relatives
should be notified of his death until one
day after his burial.
. Hanlon and Thorp carried out these In
structions to tha letter.

A curious Incident Is reported from
Colchester, England. Owing to various de
lays a wedding did not start until eome

aa much as possible,- but waa unable to
finish it before 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
after which hour weddings cannot legally
be performed In that country. The cere

the pair remained unwed for the day. The
London Globe says: "Instances of mar

A remarkable case of the recovery of the
use of power of locomotion was that when
Ethel VanderBloot, daughter of Edward rr.
Vandersloot of York, Pa., who had not
walked In twelve years, said to her father:
"Papa, I want to get up and walk,"
straightened up, raised her feet and pro
ceeded to cross tha room unaided.
For a dozen years she had been an in
valid and for the first time In six years
the girl ate dinner with her parents at tho
table. The beat physicians In York pro
nounced her case hopeless, and the father
has spent thousands of dollars In the effort
to effect a cure.
Mr. Vandersloot aays that he knows of
no other reason to which he might ascribe
her cure than that of the prayers of
friends. Physicians have been unable to
diagnose her ailment.
Gallantry of Sick Man.
A sense of humor and a delicate compli
ment was that of a Holton (Kan.) boy who
was lying in a hospital. The pretty nurse
overheard him exclaim: "Oh, my Lord!"
Wishing to rebuke him kindly, she came
to his bedside and laid: "I think that I
heard you call upon the name of the Lord.
I am one of His daughters. Is there any
thing I can do for you?" He looked up
Into her lovely face and with every mark
of respect and admiration remarked: "Yes;
ask Him how He would like me for a son-in-law."
Canoed a Ball Moose.
Dr. and Mrs. F. H. Jencka of Woonsocket,
R. I , are the first Maine visitors to run
down by canoe a bull moose within sight
and sound of the hotel at Ktneo, but they
accomplished the unusual feat and a num
ber witnessed the chase.
The moose was first sighted by Mrs.
Jencks while on the way by canoe to the
fishing grounds. On rounding the northerly
point of Klneo cove she noticed an object
in the water near the shore, which she at
first took to be a log. Closer examination
showed that It was moving rapidly out into
the lake. She called the attention of the
guide to the objtct.
"It's a moose. Reel in your lines," he
whispered. For a while the guide held the
canoe In the shadows near the shore, al
lowing the moose to put sufficient water be
tween him and the shore so that retreat
would be Impossible, and then the race be
gan. With a good start a moose can lead
the best of canoelsta, but in this case the
guide had matters his own way, for head
whichever way he might the moose wpuld
be losing ground.
In the course of due time the canoe was
alongside and the occupants were stroking
the shaggy back of the tired and frightened
animal with their fly rods, as he surged on,
snorting and grunting furiously. After a
time the moose was driven ashore half a
mile down tbe lake.
A young Virginia woman, who was very
111, was approached by her colored servant,
who said: "Miss May, mah mothah dun
had a cousin what had de same ailments
what you dun got."
"Is that so, Cora?" replied the woman.
"Yessum," responded Cora, encouraged,
"but mah mothah's cousin she died, 'deed
"Well, Cora," said her mistress, angry
that she should tell her such a tale at such
van inopportune time, "If that's all you
have to say to me you can leave the room
and don't come In again. I don't want to
hear such stories."
Cora was thoroughly frightened at what
she had done and wished to ameliorate her
Ill-chosen story, so she thought for a mo
ment and, turning to go, said:
"Well, Miss May, mah mothah tole me
she died mighty easy.'
Oldest Horae In Iowa.
The supposed oldest horae In Iowa, aged
52 yeara, lives three miles from Stanhope
In Hamilton county, and is the property of
a Scandinavian farmer. Last winter he
was bereaved by the death of his Juvenile
mate, a horse that died in the full bloom
at the age of 32.
The horse that has Just completed more
than half a century of life Is In fairly good
flash and Is fed on bread baked with on
additional ration of sugar each day. His
owner is proud of him and money would
not tempt him to make a sale. It Is said
that all the signs of great age are present.
Ills coat has not been shed for several
years, and his muscles have lost their
power to a degree. With all this, however,
he covers four miles of country roads every
day, hauling the cream from two cows to
the creamery, two miles from the farm.
