FITZROY FINANCES. FRANK DISCUSSION. ROCKHAMPTON, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

FITZROY FINANCES. FRANK DISCUSSION. ROCKHAMPTON, January 9. With only £1000 to spend before reaching the limit of its overdraft and   little prospect of any more rates com- ing in before next June, the financial ship of the Fitzroy Shire Council is fast approaching '' the rocks.'' The present Council's term ends in April, and the condition of the finances is such that it is causing members great anxiety. For the purpose of discussing the position standing orders were sus- pended at yesterday's meeting, and A Water Nymph. there were frank expressions of opinion all round. No. 1 division, which embraces the Bajool and Marmor localities, is in the worst plight. They have a lot of main roads carrying traffic from other shires and not enough rateable land to cope with the cost of maintaining the numer- ous highways. Ways and means of alleviating the position were discussed at great length, but the only light members could see was for the Home Secretary to make effective the ...

RADIO RADIATED [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

RADIO RADIATED (By Aerial.) The moving, coil loudspeaker repre- sents a great step forward in the tech- nical development of loudspeakers, by reason of the fact that it enables very large acoustic energies to be reproduced without distortion. It is, however, also very suitable for small energies such as with home sets, as it gives a most excellent reproduction of the highest and lowest audio frequencies, better than would be possible with speakers of electromagnetic construction. It is only a short time since the elec- tromagnetic speaker was placed on the market. With this electromagnetic there is always a quadratic relation between the current and the directional force of the armature, whereas with electrody- namic speakers the current traversing the speaker always sets up a force in linear proportion. The principle of electrodynamic move- ment is based upon the deflection of a current carrying conductor in a field. If the conductor carries currents in rhythm with the voice freque...

WAGES CLAIM. SHARE FARMING SEQUEL. ROCKHAMPTON, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

WAGES CLAIM. SHARE FARMING SEQUEL. ROCKHAMPTON, January 10. In February of last year William Kluver, a Bajool farmer, and T. Coney, whom he had known for some years, entered into an arrangement to work a portion of Kluver's farm on the half- share basis. It was arranged to plant cotton, but before the planting Coney left, due, he alleges, to Kluver making it impossible to stay on the place.   As a sequel, Coney proceeded against Kluver, claiming £46 17s. 6d., balance due for work and labour done. Kluver counter-claimed for £30 7s. 9d., alleged to be due for board and lodging, goods supplied and money lent. Mr. T. Halley appeared for the plain- tiff and Mr. E. R. Larcombe (instruct- ed by Mr. D. P. Carey) for the de- fendant. The plaintiff, who described himself as a farm labourer, stated that on Feb- ruary 1st, 1929, he was at Kluver's farm, and at Kluver's request he took on cotton picking, falling scrub, and fencing with him on half shares. They were engaged in '' bru...

RECLAIMED. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

RECLAIMED. ------------0-----------         (For the ''Central Queensland Herald''). Old man Collins was leaning over the sliprails of his horse paddock one evening — one foot resting on the lower rail and his arms folded over the top — he was looking away in the west, towards a high range of hills that was fast disappearing in the gathering gloom. Bent and old, the old man looked like the dying day itself, or like the dying year, for it was closing on the first week in December . ''DADDY!'' a voice called him from the dwelling some sixty yards away. The old man blinked, and a ghost of a smile flickered across his face. ''Daddy!'' it called again, and presently a slight figure ran down the track towards him. It stopped beside him, and with a laugh an arm went round his neck. The girl was Joan Collins, the old man's adopted daugh- ter. It was through love and sym- pathy that old Collins and his wife had taken her, when she was but a...

A LULLABY. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

A LULLABY. (For the ''Central Queensland Herald.'') ''Oh, hush thee my babe ! '' A sweet voice rang out on the still evening air, and a man, tired with the toil of the day, crept to a position of vantage and standing with his back against a tree, filled his pipe, while his thoughtful, love-filled eyes drank in the beauty of the scene be- fore him. There on the verandah of their home sat his wife rocking their first-born — their son — to sleep. From where he stood Jim Condon could see and hear, yet not be seen. Jim   loved his home, his cattle, and his horses, but most of all he loved his wife with all the fervour of his generous heart, and when she had given him a son his joy knew no bounds . THIS was the only home he had known. It was to this great coun- try that his father had brought his mother, a young bride from England, and here they had toiled, carving a house out of the virgin scrub, and when they passed on they left the re-   sult of their labours ...

THE BOSCOMBE VALLEY MYSTERY. ---------------0--------------     By SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE.       Copyright, 1921. by Harper and Bros. Published by special arrange-     ment with The McClure Newspaper Syndicate.     The story thus far: Holmes and Watson started by train to investigate the Boscombe Valley Mystery. Holmes told Watson that Mr. Charles McCarthy was a tenant of Mr. John Turner, the largest landlord proprietor of the region. The men were social equals, both ex-Australians. McCarthy had an eighteen-year-old son, Turner a daughter of the same age. McCarthy had two servants, a man and a girl, and Turner had a large establishment . A day or so before McCarthy and his serving man were out together in the morning and McCarthy said he must hurry as he had an engagement at three. In the afternoon he started out. A little later his son returned from a three-day visit...

BOYS' PAGE THE SCIENTIFIC CRACKSMAN—III. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

BOYS' PAGE THE SCIENTIFIC CRACKSMAN— III.     ———0———           BY ARTHUR B. REEVE.     The story so far: John Graham Fletcher, aged philanthropist and steel mag- nate, is found lying lifeless on the floor between his bedroom and the adjoining library. The safe in the library had been opened and his will had been stolen . He had died of apoplexy. He was survived by a nephew, John G. Fletcher, Jr., professor of bacteriology at the university, and a grand-niece, Helen Bond. In the stolen will he was supposed to have left the bulk of his fortune to the university to found a school of preventive medi- cine, with his nephew as dean . Kennedy went to Fletcherwood, the man's Long Island estate, to investigate. There were no fingerprints on the box from which the will had been removed. Evidently the thief had used a sort of liquid rubber on his hands, a French trick. Kennedy ...

Girls' Club [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

Girls' Club My Dear Girls, In addition to our ordinary weekly competitions, I think we might have an occasional contest for the prize of a nice book. Therefore, I invite the mem- bers of the Girls' Club to compete in a drawing competition, the subject to be a human being, of any age. You may choose a man, woman, girl or boy, according to your fancy, but I wish to have the face showing, and if possible, dress your subject in modern garb. Draw your picture on good solid paper, in Indian ink. Drawings in pencil will not be considered in the competition, but if up to standard of publication, may be printed later, and marks award- ed in the usual way. Write your name, age, and address clearly on the drawing, and state also the name of the book you would like as a prize should you win the com- petition. The competition will close on the 12th February. Best wishes to all the girls from COUSIN RUTH.

STORIES. TWILIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

STORIES. TWILIGHT. (Written by Betty Tooker.) On a Queensland station a wild horse lived. Many people had tried to trap and run him down, but had failed. He was a black, tall, and strongly built, a fit leader for the beautiful brumbies which followed him from the hills every night at twilight. On the crest of an ironstone ridge he stood, head held high, neck arched, alert, and watchful, a beautiful figure silhouetted sharply against the darkening sky. He neighed, and out from the scrub gal- loped a mob of horses, twenty all told, bright chestnuts, blacks, silver greys, browns, and glossy bays, prancing and galloping down the hillsides. On the flat below they halted, while the long legged foals played on the green. Then all began to crop the grass or bend their glossy necks to drink from the water- holes with the crystal clear water. It was a bright moonlight night and a horseman, who watched from the hill- side, wondered at the beauty of the scene before him. His chance of ob- serva...

LETTERS.   Grace Merchant, Newcastle, writes: — After another long period of neglect I take up my pen to write to you and my fellow clubites. I cannot tell you how   delighted I was to find that I had se- cured the prize for the '' Humorous   story.'' I only found out yesterday and received my book to-day, which is luckily   a day just suited for reading, as it has been raining off and on. Please give   my sincerest thanks to the giver. How does everyone feel after their Christ-   mas celebration ? I felt so ''fed up'' after Christmas dinner that I was afraid to go in for a swim in case I sank. I   haven't' noticed anyone writing to say what they got for Christmas so I thought I would start. Santa Claus (?) was kind to me this year and left me a Brownie camera, a Wahl fountain pen,   a coolie coat, a new bathing cap, £2, some perfume, and soap, handkerchiefs, shoe trees and tooth ...

CORNERITES' COMPETITIONS. DON'T COPY. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

CORNERITES' COMPETITIONS. DON'T COPY. (Written by Elsie Irons). Oh children, do not copy,     When you send your entries in:   For Uncle will be angry, As it is a real sin. But do your own hard work, Without trying to deceive:   Then Uncle will print it in the Page,   And points you will receive. But if you copy from other's work, Uncle well disappointed be:   For when at school we learn.   ''Honesty is the best policy.'' ( No. of points 6). SHOPPING (Drawn by Nel Hobler. No. of points 7). MOUSIE. (Written by Arnold Timm). One night a wee mousie said to his brother. ''Let's get a piece of cheese for our mother;'' But his brother said. ''No, I wouldn't do that, Because in the pantry, is a big black cat.'' Then mousie crept to the hole in the floor. And from there he ran to the pantry door; Then he saw a little piece of bread. ''That's for me and mother,'' he said. He began to drag it along the ...

My dainty cloak of rainbow hue, Would sparkle with gems of frozen dew— If only these wishes would all come true ! (No. of points 9)

Children's Corner [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

Childrens' Corner       By Uncle Sam My Dear Nieces and Nephews, Well, and how are all my little friends ? Not tired of the holidays, yet, I hope.? If you are getting bored, you know you can always sit down and write a letter to Uncle, or per- haps a story, or a really truly poem. And that reminds me, the holidays seem to have brought forth quite a crop of young poets, and most of the efforts are very good. But it is apparent from your rhymings, that hardly any of you know anything about the     laws governing the making of verse. Gener- ally, you manage to get the rhyming alright, but the metre, or rhythm, is allowed to buck about without hindrance. Metre is the re-   currence of stress or accent at regular intervals in lines which correspond in rhyme. Notice   how the accent falls in the following lines:— ''When skies' are blue/ and days/ are bright/, A kitch/engard/en's my/ delight/,'' &...
