IV. Alan Hamilton Mii.likan, b. June lo, 1903, at .Augaston.

The Sydney Bulletin, probably the cleverest literary pa|)er in .\ustralia,
copied "Empty Bottles" from the iVorf/nrn 'J'erri/ory 'J'iines, with this com-
ment: "Whoever Millikan is, he has a line eye for a point and a moral,
and the Bulletin wants to hear from him again."

(L-mptn ^lottlcs.

1!V RKV. W. a. millikan.

Bottles everywhere, just teeming, lying all about, and seeming
To be ever, ever dreaming of the days that are no more!
And I camped each night, a rover, as I trod the country over,
Hardly rinding room to lay me for them, as I sought tlie shore,
Each day rinding, as I sought Australia's farthest northern shore.

Empty bottles on before.

On the burning plains they're scattered, and where miners rocks have shattered ;
On stations, and away inland, beside the deej) artesian bore;
From whence we too often l^orrow ghastly tales of trials and sorrow.
Trials of those who know no morrow, who ended life in blood and gore,
l!ut how came their life, so precious, to shudder out in blood and gore .■*

Contents of bottle — nothing more.

'Neath the darksome jungle's shutter, where the wood-doves flirt and flutter.
Where Dame Nature pours profusion of bounties from her goodly store —
There I saw them, vigils kee])ing, shining backs forever peeping
From the grass where I beheld tiiem, veritable ghosts of yore ;
And a voice behind me whispered: " From the festive days of yore

Empty bottles — nothing more."

Again upon my journey starting, with the feeling on me darting,
On my heart already smarting, smarting to its inmost core-
That N.T., so vainly vaunted, had its gruesome tales of haunted,
Of haunted spots, reminders of the dead and old forgotten lore ;
And what could solve the mystery of these spots, this oltl forgotten lore .>

Empty bottles — nothing more.

So the cue thus found I followed, as I trod o'er ground all hallowed
To enrich Chinese who wallowed where white men had heretofore
Worked the mines with pro|)er methods, but had sunk before the slipshods.
" What could be the cause?" I shouted, "Tell me, tell me. I implore.'—
And the voice l)eside me echoed: "Tell me, tell me, I implore.^—

Bottles, bottles! — nothing more."

Days had come in olden Southport, when the bottles gave great mouth spurt;
And their drinkers daily stretched out, stretched them out upon the door.
Those were days of constant chances — which now come like lireHy glances.


At what work then did they labor, daily labor by the score,
Those fine miners, at what labor did they labor by the score ;

Emptying bottles — nothing more.

Then those scenes of sad disaster followed ever, faster, faster —
Idle men, dishonest master, neglected mines of priceless store —
Blots these on our history's pages, which will shock the modern sages,
And the men in coming ages who may read our records o'er—
When they find just what has happened as they read our records o'er —

Through the bottles — nothing more.

So N.T. began to languish. Then there came that flood of anguish — ■
Chinese from the ports of China surging up upon the shore;
And with methods old and tardy, they — the steady, sober, hardy —
Won the white man's gold and country, ever, ever, more and more ;
And our thanks for this is owing, for this ever more and more —

To the bottles — nothing more.

Should it ever be so fated that white men, by " John " disrated,
Should become all isolated from N.T.'s extensive shore.
And to wipe us from existence " John " maintained with great persistence,
This has always been a China — he read it in his books of yore —
What will show we had a being, and disprove those lying books of yore?

Empty bottles ! Nothing more.

Since the above was written a shipload of these " Empty Bottles " have
been brought away from the Northern Territory, viz., 72,000 dozen.


In dark temptations hour,

When trials come nigh.
And by their subtle power

Our Souls defy.
Yield not to them in grief.

Nor yet despair.
For there is sweet relief

In earnest prayer.

No foes can this withstand

But fly they must,
If in God's saving hand

Our all we trust ;
He knowing what is best

For you and me.
Will give our spirits rest

And set them free.

From vainly anxious care

Such as deceive,
All foolish ones who dare

His ways to leave.
Then be it ours to choose

This better part,
That He may grant repose dj

On His kind heart. "

Richard Albert Milliken, son of Robert Milliken, was b. at Castlemartyn,
Co. Cork, Ireland, Sept. 8, 1767. His father was of Scottish origin, and
before coming to Cork, where he joined the established church, had been a
Quaker. The subject of this notice, Richard, was an attorney and engaged
in the practice of his profession in Cork, but the most of his time was de-
voted to painting, music, and poetry. He was a contributor to the Cor/c
Monthly Miscellany, in which his poetry was published in 1795. In 1797,
he wrote, jointly with his sister, some historical novels for the Casket. He
was known and remembered chiefly as the author of the song, " The Groves
of Blarney they look so charming," a burlesque of a doggeral ballard, " Castle
Hyde," written by an itinerant poet named Barrett, about 1790. Mr. Milli-
ken d. in 1815. A portrait was pid^lished in one edition of his poems; not
now extant.

of Coldwell, and a Major of the army. Was formerly in the 39th Foot.

Alfred B. Milligan, artist, of Philadelphia, I'enn., writes in reply \u my in-
quiries: "My father is a parson, church of Kngland, ahout 87 years old,
an austere man. 1 never heard him speak much about his family, hut
rather think lie claimed to be Scotch. His father was, 1 believe, a coal-
merchant in London. My father never had much use for his children ami
got rid of us as soon as possible. .\t the age of 15 he .sent us away. I have
