EMU PARK ''On the Sea.''   BY CON. DWYER.         Nature was in her grandest mood when she gave us Emu Park, with its incomparable beaches and tiny inlets. This beautiful haven of rest is close to Rockhampton, connected by a good road and excellent train service. As a seaside resort, no place in Australia has its equal. The hamlet is built on a nicely elevated promontory, one side of which is wooded, with natural shade trees to the water's edge. This is the Botanical Gardens, well appointed for picnic parties, and adjoining the Railway Station: an ideal natural picnic ground under a shady canopy. There is a gradual rise to the Bluff, whereon the hottest days are tempered with delightful zephyrs. In the winter the climate is superb, a revelation to tourists and visitors. The Country Women's Association are an active and progressive body, tireless in their efforts for the comfort of visitors. They have constructed a children's playground on the b...

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

JOCK. (Written by Arnold Timm). I once had a dog, and Jock was his name, I have another Jock now, and he's nearly the same; One day he was chased by a goat in the creek, But something worse happened to him next week. For as he was hunting, he met a snake, Its life he clearly meant to take: For up he sprang, and started to fight. The snake turned round, and gave Jock a bite. Poor old Jock jumped round, and gave a yelp. To kill the snake, I now did help; Now will somebody listen to what I have said, For in less than an hour, the poor dog was dead.

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

THE COUNTRY. (Written by Evelyn Timm). I like the country best of all. To me, the town seems very small. There's pleanty of room to romp and play. In the country, on the hay. There, birds and butter-flies and bees, And squirrels play among the trees. Choice wild-flowers in the valleys grow. Nodding their pretty heads to and fro. I like my calf, whose name is Sheila, My sister's little calf is Leila; They are as quiet as can be, Our two pets you'd love to see. I like the cows and horses too, Now what I'm telling you is true. I like the country best of all, With the pretty sights and trees so tall.

No. of points 8). THE LAST PURSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

No. of points 8). THE LAST PURSE. (Written by Joan Merchant). "Fares please!'' cried the conductor as he glanced impatiently towards an old man. The man fumbled in his pocket for his purse, and gave a gasp of astonishment as he found it was missing. ''Hurry up!'' he snapped angrily to the poor old gentleman. ''I have no time to waste here.'' The man hunted feverishly in his coat pocket, then under the seat. ''I'm afraid, my lad,'' he said at last, ''I have lost my purse.'' ''I have heard that excuse be- fore,'' said the conductor, ''if you haven't your fare, you will have to get off the tram.'' ''Here what's all this fuss about?'' cried a kindly-looking gentleman, who had been watch-     ing events from behind his newspaper. ''Lost your purse, eh? Just raise your left foot one minute conductor,'' he said. ''Why, I'm both- ered if I haven't been standing on it all the time! Sorry old chap'' he apologised,'' I'll think twice before I doubt a person's word aga...

MISS PIXIE'S WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

MISS PIXIE'S WEDDING. (Written by Jean Hobler). Everything was bright and gay. In Fairyland, the other day: Miss Pixie's wedding then took place, The guests were fairies of every race. The elves, the pixies, and fays were there, The wicked goblins with jet black hair: The sprites, the gnomes, and many more, As well as the others I've mentioned before. The orchestra played the Wedding March, As the bride and groom walked under an arch; MOTHER BEAR TASTES HER PORRIDGE.   (Drawn by Norma Moran. No. of points 5) The bride's dainty dress was of delicate hue, And the bridesmaids wore frocks of the pretti- est blue. When the wedding was over, the time came to eat,     There was plowbread, and berries and honey so sweet;   And when it was over, they all went away, Pleased and contented, and happy and gay. (No. of points 8)

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

THE BIRDS. (Written by Annie Masters) When the sun is getting low, And the birds are flying to their nest: To take care of their young ones, And to have a good night's rest. The birds are up so early. They get up with the sun: And fly home in the evening.   Away from wicked stone and gun The birds are harmless creatures, They do no harm to boys; So boys please drop the stone and gun. And play with better toys. No. of points 7).

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

LILLIES. (Written by Norma Moran). The Cresent Lagoon. one Summer's day, Was a wonderful sight to behold: As I walked near a bed of lilies, All blue, and green and gold. I spied a boatman rowing along, So sweetly singing, ''Loves own sweet song;" I begged him to gather a bunch for me,   As I sat in the shade of an old fig tree. I thanked him kindly,   For the beautiful bunch he got; I'll take them home just now,   Before it gets too hot. I put them in a jardiniere, A wonderful bunch they made; I'm going again to the blue lagoon, Before the lilies fade. Lillies here, lilies there, Lilies everywhere;   I never saw such a wonderful sight,   So sweet, and beautiful and bright.   (No. of points 7).

''UNCLE SAM'S'' LETTER BAG. Bernice Ramm, Upper Ulam, via Bajool writes:— I have not written to you for a long time. It has been raining a lot lately, and it made the creek run strong. We had a very nice picnic. We had a Christmas tree, and I   got a bottle of perfume, and a sewing basket from it. I got a lovely prize book this year, and the name of it is the ''Gig Book of Fairy Tales.'' I have read it all through, and there are some nice stories in it.

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

UNSUITABLE DRAWINGS. The following drawings are unsuitable for reproduction in the Children's Corner. ''Have a Look'' (portraying a reading lamp), ''A Watering Can,'' ''The Invalid,'' ''A Cat,'' ''I Like Water,'' and ''Ducky.'' are all below standard, but as they are drawn by very young children, show much promise of improvement. ''Wishing You a Happy Christmas,'' is a happy thought, but not quite up to printing standard. ''Fido'' is the name of a dog, s othat is how we recognise the queer-looking shape of that name. Otherwise it might have been mistaken for a cabbage or anything. ''The Female Wel- laby'' certainly does not flatter that particular species of animal. ''The Happy Bird'' and ''The Bird and It's Nest,'' are not able to find a resting place in the Corner. ''The New Chum'' seems to have been very hardly dealt with, as he appears to be deformed in several places. ''Ready for the Ball'' and ''After the ''But- terfly'' are both unsuitable. GUSSY BOY.

MOTOR COMPETITION. WEST AUSTRALIAN RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 16 January 1930

MOTOR COMPETITION WEST AUSTRALIAN RAILWAYS. As a result of the conviction that the competition which the railways were ex-   periencing from road motor vehicles was unfair and detrimental to the in-   terests of the State as a whole, repre-   sentatives of the various railway unions met the Minister for Railways (Mr. J. C. Willcock) and the Commissioner for Railways (Mr. E. A. Evans) and some of his principal officers recently to dis- cuss the question (says the ''West Aus- tralian,'' Perth).   In introducing the employees' repre-   sentatives, Mr. Grieve (Locomotive En- gine-drivers, Firemen and Cleaners' Union) stated that the intention behind their movement was to discuss with the management of the department the situ- ation as it existed to-day. Information had been collated from all parts of Australia with a view of endeavouring to find an equitable basis for the opera- tion of all transport agencies. So far as pa...

ROMANTIC STORY OF THE RUSH TO THE CANOONA FIELD. SHEPHERD'S DISCOVERY OF SMALL NUGGET HAD REMARKABLE SEQUEL Row Rockhampton Was Put On The Map. Trie/ first gold on the Canoona field, as related by 'Battler' in the following story, was founid by a man named Chappie, who, at the time, was employed as a shepherd. While wait ing on the bank of Canoona Creek one day for the billy to boil in preparation of his midday meal, he idly stab&ed the ground with his sheath knife and turned up a small nugget. On returning to Gladstone he related his good fortune and this was the start of the rush to the field. Vwjr soon vessels of all sort were put in commission to carry the people to what was known as the Port Curtis Rush. The river and bay were crowded with craft and people streamed up the South Yaamba road in droves— all to meet with disappointment and a period of severe privations. Although the Archers discovered and named Rockhampton, it was the rush to Canoona that first put the town...
