ANOTHER CENTRALIA In the State of Illinois, U.S.A., is a town which rejoices in the panic of Centra lia. Not only is it similar to our part of the world in name, but it is evidently simi lar as regards the housing short age. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Sligar advertised in the Centralia Sen tinel as under : — 'Wanted immediately — Unfurn- ished apartment or house: man, wife, and daughter, 8, and dog. Will dispose of dog, but prefer to keep child.'

NEW STOCK ROUTE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

NEW STOCK ROUTE At present no gazetted stock route exists over the last 55 miles of the Barkly route to the Queens land border at Camooweal. Re cently an air and ground inspec tion 'was made of this section by the Administrator, the Chief Veterinary Officer and the Director of Lands. As a result of this in spection, it is proposed to com plete this route to the border and equip it with three bores and negotiations are now proceeding to this end. Consideration has been given to the position of a stock route to serve some of the blocks of the proposed new Sandover Sub division and, after an air inspec tion, the Chief Veterinary Officer and the Director of Lands have reached agreement concerning a route running east from Honey moon Bore to meet the north bank of the Sandover as far as the eastern limit of the proposed new blocks. After a close inspection from a low-flying aircraft, the Chief Veterinary Officer and the Director of Lands have agreed upon a suit able stock route to serve ...

Mc Donald from the Edna Beryl mine, 240 tons were crushed for a re turn of 1,128 oz. of gold buiiion over the plates (estimated j«t 1,015.2 fine o/..) gross value This mine crushed 111 tons for 704.5 fine oz. valued at £7,58:-$ during October 1940 prior to which date it was under option to Burma Malay Tin Ltd., of Sydney; the company carried out fairly extensive development work from October, 1945 to the middle of lihW when the option was re linquished, as the mine was not considered large enough for a company proposition. Work done by the company consisted of the sinking of two 100 ft. shafts con necting with 70 ft. of driving, as / '~ a result of which 'a small leader carrying very high values and showing course gold was located.

STORAGE TANKS AND EQUIPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

STORAGE TANKS AND EQUIP MENT The Divisional Works Officer has advised that he is now ready to commence equipping all of the bores mentioned in the previous paragraph, with storage tanks, mills and troughs. In this con nection, the policy has been de cided upon to construct earth tanks of 900,000 gallons capacity. This decision has been made bo cause it is realised that this sub stantial storage will greatly cur tail the work of the maintenance gangs, and largely overcome water shortage difficulties wMcli have occurred in the past.

STOCK ROUTE BORING PROGRAMME [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

STOCK ROUTE BORING PROGRAMME Recent inspections have shown that the boring programme of the Divisional Works Officer (Mr. D. D. Smith) is up to schedule, and the following bores have already been sunk this season : — A bore between the Causeway Bore and No. 8 Boi'e, Barkly. A bore near the Tandigee Water Holes. A bore on the Junction Reserve. A bore to replace the crooked one on No. 4 Barkly. The boring contractor (Mr. G. Gorey) goes from No. 4 Barkly to sink a new bore between Nos. 2 and 3 Barkly; he then goes on to put down two bores to replace the private waters being used on Alexandria. The Barkly Route will then be continued by placing two bores down between the O'Reilly Bore (Nelson Johnson) and Camooweal. The programme also includes two more bores for the new Brunette Stock Route Deviation, but this work has been suspended pending further inves tigation. In the far South the boring con tractor, Mr. Hall, is still trying to get water to improve the Goy der route.

CENTRALIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, 1947. TOURISTS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

CENTRA LIAN ADVOCATE SATURDAY, AUGUST MO, 19-17. TOURISTS The tourist season is coining to a close, and the later members of the groups have not had a very good time. For the first time in MO or more years Centralia has been blessed with copious rains in August. Probably the tour ists will not even use the word copious, they came up to see sunny skies and all the colored scenery that they have heard so much about, and encountered Melbourne weather that had not many spots of sunshine about it — worse than that it was bitterly cold. To us who live here, it was a phenomenal reaction to anything we have been used to and although rain is always welcome here, most of us felt that we were having too much even of a good thing. All the earlier tourists have been delighted with their visit and most have determined to come again next year, and for this rea son this article is written. First, we want them to come, because new blood gives new ideas. Tour ists bring and spend money, and often wis...

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Good morning everyone ! I Mease don't mention 'oomphies' to me, friends ! . The 'prelims.' were so nerve/shattering and so tiring that my week-end was almost spoilt. But not quite. It was pleasant on the lawns, enthusiasm ran high in spite of small fields, and the A.I.M. brew of tea was quite as good as this one I am en joying. While sipping that cup of tea, conversation turned to A.I.M. activities. The older residents reminisced and we who have but few years, in comparison, of Ter ritory life to look back upon, missed not a word of tiiose early clays and those words of praise so sincerely spoken for the job that was done by the Inland Mis sion. But like many really worth while jobs it is never finished. Many women with their children have rejoiced that the hostel is open again, and I'm sure all of you have heard of the proposed home -for the elderly bushmen. Such a laudable scheme will not lack support if I am any judge of my fellows. I wonder ...

FEWER CATTLE ON OFFER VALUES MOSTLY FIRM [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

FEWER CATTLE ON OFFER VALUES MOSTLY FIRM There was a reduction in both numbers and weight of beef at the Abattoirs market on Monday, but values were well maintained except for chopper and inferior cows. The yarding total of 1,860 was 220 less than last week, and included a larger propor tion of light weight types with a certain number of these in prime attractive condition. Heavyweight bullocks were relatively scarce, although the limited selection included some big-framed and well finished bul locks. Cows were plentiful and quality ranged from aged chop pers to heavyweight prime and overfat cows and values declined for inferior types. Fewer steers in store condition were offered but there was still a large proportion in only just use ful to killable condition. Calves and light weight steers and heifers were well represented and included several very attractive drafts for which there was keen competition resulting in prices sometimes slightly in advance of recent rates. The followin...

R.S.L. CLUB NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 30 August 1947

R.S.L. CLUB NOTES — :o: — Owinjg to the large increase in   members, it was decided at a committee meeting, held last week, to extend the Club Rooms by bringing the adjoining hut under one roof, removing one wall entirely and 20 feet out of the existing hut. This will incidently give the club a hall 50 feet wide and 60 feet long. A cement floor, mirror finish, suitable for dancing, will be laid, and it is the intention of the committee to hold periodical dances for members and their wives from time to time. It is noticed that there are still a large number of returned men around the town and district, who have not joined the Club. We would like to see all Diggers join and support us. Quite a number of visitors have called at the Club— Mr. Krantz, of the Clerk's Union, Greg Ryall, from Anthony's Lagoon, who brought good wishes from one of our members, Jack Young, who is on Anthony's Lagoon Station. Also many others. The August issue of the League magazine "Back" is now o...

WHAT NAME ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 6 September 1947

WHAT NAME ? A tombstone without a gi'ave can be seen by the road out from Darwin (North Australia). Min ers finding alluvial gold decided to start a town and called it after their leader, the mayor, Shakle. The mayor, however, died and a tombstone was ordered from Darwin. The wet season was beginning so the mayor was buried to await his tombstone and meanwhile the mourners in duged in a mighty 'wake.' When the tombstone arrived the grass had grown tall and all signs of the grave were lost. No one could remember where they had buried the body. The tombstone was just dumped on the side of the track where it remains today. The boomerang, invented by the Australian aboriginal, employs the same aerodynainic principles as the modern flying machine. In cross section the shape of a boomerang in return flight is similar to the wing of an aero plane, and the pecudiar twist or bias put into the weapon makes it resist a deflecting force. This is exactly the principle used in ie modern gyroscope...
