The creatures enter the extreme northern waters when spring has driven the ice away, and remain un til the ice returns. At the beginning of the whaling season temporary camps, consisting of improvised shelters made from upturned boats or frames of sleds over which skins or paulins arc stretched, are made on the ice fields. Fur robes form the floor. Whale-hunting to the natives is much in the nature of a regatta, honours going to the boat which kills the first whale of the season. A successful hunt ensures a winter's supply of food for the entire village. With sails hoisted to the wind, the boats set out, each carrying th...

OUTBACK NURSING LONELY LIFE OF SELF DENIAL ! Sister Wood, who is an old Austin Hospital nurse, has returned to Mel bourne after an interesting two years spent at the Australian Inland Mission Hospital at Victoria Biver Downs, North Australia (or Northern Terri tory, as it was till recently).

BEWARE OF THESE TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 17 January 1929

BEWARE OF THESE TREES. There is no foundation lor the stories of the upas tree gi'. ing out deadly fumes, Lord Frederic Hamil ton tells us in his recently-puliiished book entitled, 'Here, There, and Everywhere.' He describes the upas as being a tall, handsome, tree, with smooth. whitish bark, and a family resem blance to a birch ; and adds that, al though one can sit under its shade for hours on end without experienc ing any ill-effects, it is unquestion ably intensely poisonous. A scratch made on' the finger by the bark has been known to have very serious results, and tne emana tions from a newly-lopped-off branch are 'strong enough to bring out a rash, while anyone foolish enough to drink the sap would most certainly die. Amongst the world's poison trees, however, Lord Frederic awards the palm for deadliness to the West In dian machineel. This is an insigni ficant tree to look at, but it is so violently toxic that even tb.3 rain drops falling from its leaves wiL raise painful blis...

STATE'S FIRST GOVERNOR EARLY FAMILY HISTOBY The Rev. P. U. Henn, late headmas- ter of Guildford Grammar School, wrote the following interesting note on Sir James Stirling to Miss Gertrude   Eliot, of Thomas-street: — 'While   studying the registers of Bedhampton   Church, I came across interesting evi- dence of the connection of Sir James Stirling, first Governor of Western Australia, with this place. Sir James Stirling was Governor of the State from 1829 to 1839 when the prospects of war with France made him resign in order to return to active service. He was in command of various ships in the Mediterranean from 1840 to 1850. About 1845 he seems to have settled his family at Belmont, a large Georgian mansion in a park of about 120 acres in this parish, for there is on May 27, 1845, the registration of the baptism of Georgina Janet, daugh- ter of James and Ellen Stirling, of Bel mont Knight, Captain R.N.
