MPDERN CRUSOES. SEVEN MONTHS ON AN1 ISLAND Fifteen survivors from thc wreck of the barque Dundonald have returned to civilisation ¡after 'spending seven months ' on Disappointment Island, one of thd buckland group. Their ship was driven ashore stern first on a high rocky coast. Twelve of the crew, including thc captain and his son, were at once swept away and frowned, but- the others with thc Kroatost dlfflciilty mann Rod to--, climl,. tho precipitólas ' rocks, and there- they found. a subsistence : on, younR . non birds, native plants, and seals.

AN J3PÎDEMÏG" OF FIRES. The proverb that misfortune never comes singly must have been ovolvo.l from thc experience of mankind rela- tive to fires.

The loss at longreach, from the destruc- tion of 166 yards of frontage to the mam street' is said to ¡amount to £40,001»; and this was thc third big fire within ten years. Indeed, wc arc told by thc, guileless "-reporter that "all thc premises burnt had been pre- viously destroyed in thc fires of 1838 or 1902." No wonder the Council ari arranging to construct fire bréalas in the form of brick walls at certain in- tervals; and tho experiment, if suc- cessful, ought to bc copied in muny oi our provincial ¡towns, where thc risk...

Our Metropolitan Letter. (From)-Our Corresppndent). BRISBANE, Dec. 6th.' THE POLITICAL OUTLOOffl. .Leaders of the three political par- ties are steadily preparing for thc general election. Candidates are re- ceiving endorsement, differences . are being adjusted, and thc weak places licarched out. Mr. Philp's friends are hopeful, but they will not take any- thing for granted. They will fight every inch of the ground; and if they nehieve the Premier's expectations of winning sixteen seats from the foe, without anyvmaterial losses on their own side, they will have every reason to be satisfied. Thc Labour manifes- to was mentioned in last week's let- ter, but so far neither Philp nor Kid- ston have made any sign. Personally 1 think the Premier means to wort: a little bit of a surprise on friends and enemies alike; and when he thinks the moment opportune, he will bring out his address to the electors sonic fine morning, "without notice." Judging from the personnel of the present Cabinet,...

A.KIDSTON AND LABOUR COMBINE. The question is still being asked, How far ¡will Kidston , and Labour sections ' work together in : the clcc 'tion contest? Can they agree to a self-denying ordinance which will pre- vent "clashing?"' Thc indications are that in a J certain number of cases they will. ' But there will _ be excepi tions-perhaps many of fthem. Thc "Worker" emphasises the absoluto freedom of the W.P.O. in every elec- torate lo adopt its- own course, un- fettered by iany influence from thc Central Political Executive; and this is in harmony iwjth thc message sent by Secretary Hir.chcliffc to thc Union organiser in fMr. iHcrr's electorate.

AMBULANCE MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 13 December 1907
AMBULANCE MATTERS&lt; Tho steady advance in the town ol Cairns during the past year or so has had a marked effect on the Am- bulance Brigade and where 60 calls a month were once received, thero are now 120 cases demanding ¡the at- tention of the Superintendent, and being without a paid assistant, his energies are naturally taxed to thc utmost. .Several visitors to Cairns during the past few months, who take an interest in brigado matters, havu expressed surprise that itho j committee of the Cairns centre have not fallen into Hue with southern cLties and obtained a sulky for quick turn outs. At present thc Supcrin I pendent (Mr. Hcgan) is forced to run with thc litter to tho 6cenc of thc accident, and hasty travelling on foot during thc present summer heat is certainly not conducive to a state of being able to render thc best pos- sible aid to a patient. The sugges- tion of a sulky is a good one and it is hoped more will be heard of tho mat- ter in the near future. It may bc ...
