SOME cynic has said that '' bowls and -golf arc the Dumrich of sport-' Golf, at any rate, is now the sport of Dunwich. The .green valleys and slopes fringed with the glistening sea, and intersected by woods and streams, once only apprecia ted by browsing kine and drowsing horses, are now daily dotted with the ewaying figures of ardent golfers, at the height of their swing, or in the depth of their despair, as ability or otherwise ordains. The hand of Nature must onee have held a golf club, for she has made here a course perfectly designed for the es pert or the foozler- Man's only part has been to make a few pot-holes to procure picturesque links. The nine holes wind themselves in fan shape around the island foreshores. The first tee starts from the sea, where the swirl of the waves and the swish of the club are the accompanying rhythm to aid the well hit ball to a sloping green, some 190 ya...

ROMANTIC SIXTIES ? ^ ? ? ; ? Further Postal Links I i '????'.. (By J. L. Bhattock.) : - In the previous survey of early postal history we glanced through nearly two decades,, the * * Koaring For ties' and the 'Golden Fifties,' passed in the shadow of old New South Wales, but as 1853 faded from the screen, Queensland emerged into the sunshine of her ? own existence as a self-governing, sovereign colony, and thenceforward the tale of the post office is a chapter in her individual his tory to the dawn of the Common weaitn. The opening of the ' new era is still covered by that 'First Beport,' and it may be interesting to look back ward at some of the events that marked it.
