NOTES FROM NEVER NEVER [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 2 September 1927
NOTES FROM NEVER NEVER (By the Little Bush Maid) Here I am again after a long 12 weeks silence. The weather is very disheartening. Just at present it is chilly and dusty with that wretched south-east wind blowing—when we want hot cloudy weather and rain, &nbsp; rain, rain, rain ! There is nothing cheerful about residing on a cattle station at the end of a dry year. All you can see from the homestead is black soil where the grass has been dust clouds and endless strings of cattle coming and going to and from the wells where they are watered. &nbsp; The isolation is almost a thing &nbsp; of the past, we had eight cars pass us in 6 days. A few years ago we saw the mailman once every six weeks and an occasional traveller. A car was a novelty. Three parties of railway surveyors have passed to their different destinations. One &nbsp; party will work from Daly waters to Anthony's Lagoon, one from An- thony's Lagoon to Borroloola and the &nbsp; other ...
THE MOTORING CRAZE (With Elsie Bohning's apologies to the composer.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 2 September 1927
THE MOTORING CRAZE (With Elsie Bohning's apologies to the composer.) Some people drive their Hupmobiles And some their Chevrolets But now the little Bush-Maid feels The urge of the mot'ring craze. She bought herself a FORD, brand new, Spare sparking plugs and tyres, But you would get a scare if you Heard Liz when she back-fires. Old Lizzie jumps and bucks and snorts Puts onlookers to rout And she in every way contorts And turns 'most inside out. And once the little Bush Maid tried A chauffeur to be But Lizzie took the bit and shied And ran against a tree. Now Mum thought she would show the lot Just how much she could do But accidentally touched the throt And off old Lizzie flew. But Dad has quietened old Lizzie down She's quiet as quiet can be And he has taken her to town For rations—don't you see When dad returns from Katherine Town, &nbsp; With Lizzie wobbling back The next to tame old Lizzie down Will probably be Jack. When idiosyncracies of Liz They thing they've got all...
