CHAPTER XIX [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 8 January 1948
CHAPTER XIX When Peter Simpson — in his role o£ beggar — had left his friend Jimmy Newland, after entrusting to him the task of recovering from their hiding place the papers he had procured from 'The Matcher's*' headquarters, lie ht*o*if-liari Tn«if*o fra^Ar l'arf nf Hit? fowl.* was done, and he could now devote him self to completing his investigations into the great organisation of smug glers which was causing the authorities in England so much concern. Peter believed that 'The Matcher' himself was the real head of the most important gang of smugglers — that his was the brain that directed the land ing of contraband cargoes at isolated spots on the English coast. So far, Peter had nothing tangible on which to base his beliefs, but he resolved now to collect such material as would enable the gang to be smashed for good and all. The very location of 'The Matcher's' chateau gave credence to the theory simmering in the Secret Service man's brain, and Peter smiled as he recalled how he...

Early Day Cricket Some Unchronicled Records SINGLE WICKET MATCH [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 8 January 1948
Early Day Cricket Some Unchronicled Records SINGLE WICKET MATCH There is much about Australian Cricket you won't find in Wisden's or Mr; Neville Cardus' commentaries. Neither of these authorities has, for instance, mentioned the highest score ever recorded in au Australian match (writes W. I*. Thorn tou in the 'Sydney Morning Herald.') This score was 1238 runs for nine wickets in a match between the Ulster and Macquarie clubs, played at Moore Park, Sydney, during the 1874-75 season. L'Jster club won the toss and went in to bat, !nit an the game was played only on Saturday afternoons, the team was still batting a month later! Towards the end of the fourth Sat urday, when the score had reached 123S runs for the loss of nine wickets, the captaiu of the Macquarie team asked the Ulster captain to close his innings. As he refused, the Macquarie team decided to walk off the field and so the game was abandoned. The scoring rate in a one-day match between teams from the Commercial and Joint ...

Palestine Outrages TWO BOMB EXPLOSIONS Armoured Car's Mad Career NEW SECURITY MOVES &nbsp; Jerusalem, January 8. Eighteen people were killed in two bomb explosions, in Jerusalem yester- day.

Sheep and Lambs LATE RATES MAINTAINED [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 8 January 1948
Sheep and Lambs LATE RATES MAINTAINED Competition for the smaller number of sheep offered at Wednesday's fat stock sales at Midland Junction was not as keen as had been anticipated and prices remained unaltered. Lambs and cattle were also in lighter supply. Bidding was good and values were firm at late quotations. The offering of 5,702 sheep showed a decrease of about 2,400 on last week's figure but there was a slight improve- ment in quality. Graziers were again &nbsp; competing throughout the sale for all right-aged ewes and wethers and lambs suitable for grazing purposes and lifted approximately 1,500. Quotations : — Wethers: Best heavyweight, 41/- to 44/- (odd pens, higher) ; good medium weight, 38/- to 40/-; good lightweight, 35/- to 38/-; medium, 33/- to 34/-; plain and light, lower.

South-West Fires CLOSE GALL AT SAWMILL Fighters Have a Busy Time SEQUEL TO GOOD SEASON Perth, This Afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 8 January 1948
South-West Fires _____________ &nbsp; CLOSE CALL AT SAWMILL Fighters Have a Busy Time SEQUEL TO GOOD SEASON Perth, This Afternoon. Fire gutted a loco shed and nearby workshop at the State Saw mills ar Holyoake yesterday afternoon. Employees fought to save the mill. This was one of several fires which have caused nearly £2,000 worth of damage in the South-West this week. Fire-fighters have been busy since Sat- urday quelling fires at homesteads and in paddocks at Pinjarra. A "pheno- menal" season has produced a heavy growth of grass and this has increased the fire hazard. Forestry men are fol- lowing all trains and have saved many outbreaks. The worst feature is that farmers are in danger of losing their summer feed and may be forced to sell or hand-feed their stock. Quick action by employees of the Holyoake Mill and the Forestry Fire Control Unit was responsible for sav- ing the mill, which is about 100 yards from the shed. They also saved an oil dump near the shed. Heavy la...
Radiant Heating Home Warming Units AMERICAN INNOVATION [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 8 January 1948
Radiant Heating —♦ — Home Warming Units AMERICAN INNOVATION There are 20,000 houses, completed or building in America to-day, without radiators or any sign of heating system. Yet their occupants will be comfortably warm this winter, will experience none of the "dried-out" feeling common to radiator-heated homes, will be free from draughts and less troubled by dust. The secret is radiant heating — "most exciting development in heating for generations," accorduig to Law- rence Galton in "The Reader's Digest" for December. Galton's article is con- densed from "Steelways." Iu radiant heating, hot water or air — at somewhat lower temperatures than &nbsp; in conventional systems — circulates through buried pipe coils, turning walls or ceilings into large heating panels. The panels do not primarily heat the air in a room. Instead, they broadcast heat waves, which heat any object they encounter — your body, for instance. Through normal metabolism, Galton says, your body generates 40...

Butter For Britain GOVERNMENT'S SCHEME "Interesting But Nebulous" QUERIES FOR MINISTER Bunbury, This Afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 10 January 1948
Butter For Britain GOVERNMENT'S SCHEME 'Interesting But Nebulous' QUERIES FOR MINISTER | Bunbury, This Afternoon. The statement by the Minister for Agri«-ulttire (Mr. Pollard) on plans to j dotihlf rlie butter exports to Britain j was 'very interesting bur somewhat: J nebulous.'' ii» said the chairman of directors ol' the South-West Dairy Far mers Ltd. (Air. H. 11. Ituse) to-day. 'No details had been advanced,' he Said, 'a.s to how the scheme was to be put into operation. It was obvious that exports to Britain of dairy products j could not be increased without increas ing our output all round. There were, definite obstacles in the way of increas ing our outnut and no nmnnsak had been put forward yet as to how those j difficulties could be overcome. One of the biggest problems which farmers faced was the shortage of fencing wire to subdivide their paddocks. ''Scarcity of materials generally was impeding any drive to increase produc tion. Did the Federal Government pro pose to give da...
