WANDERING BY RANGES AND GOUGES IN THE CENTRE (Continued from Page 3) after an early breakfast, off we went to Palm Valley, about IK miles away. It is a most, delight ful spot to spend a few hours, and has beautiful rugged ranges en route to the valley. The track follows the Finke River most of the way, but this river is a worry to motorists owing to its sandy bed, but after digging ourselves out a few times we eventually reached the valley. We spent only a few. hours there, and then set off on our return back to Hermannsburg, which we reached without any trouble. We then made our way to Glen Helen Cap, which is 25 miles distant in a northern direction. This pap is a very picturesque place with its rugged rocks and gullies, and there is sofne good fishing i' its large waterholes. Our time was limited, so we made this a hurried visit, after realising1 what a beau tiful place is this gorge, situated on the western end of the Mc Donnell Ranges. Judging by the empty tins and remains of f...

HIGHER PRICES FOR TIN CANBERRA, September 8. [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 13 September 1947

HIGHER PRICES FOR TIN ' CANBERRA, September 8. Higher prices, to stimulate tin production and assist in relieving the current shortage, will operate from tomorrow. The Prices Commissioner (Mr. M. K. McCarthy) said today that the smelters' selling ^i'ice would rise from £418 a ton to £515. The producers' price would rise from 70/- a unit to 92/- for all ore booked with smelters. The higher producers' price had been approved mainly to cover in creased costs, but it was also ex pected to prove attractive enough to bring low-grade deposits into production. The higher smelters' price, iie said, took into account the in creased costs of local metal and also landing tin, which had to be imported to meet the present shortage.

For the Children THE COCKATOO'S RED STRIPE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 13 September 1947

For the Children BY JULIA ANNE THE COCKATOO'S RED STRIPE As the magpie is the State bird for South Australia, so the black cockatoo is ours. You may recognise him by the red stripe in his tail. This has not .alwavs been there, so now I will tell you how it happened. Many years ago the black cockatoo was all black, and except for his crest could not be dis tinguished from the crow. Now the crow was a thief, and all the other birds had declared war against him. He would rob their nests and; tip their, eggs out, leaving destruction everywhere he went. Because the poor black cockatoo looked so much like the villainous crow, he was often attacked and very much the worse for wear before the mistake was discovered. The crow took advantage of this and very often he plundered a nest because he knew the cock atoo was nearby and so could be mistaken for him. s One day all the birds held a meeting to decide what to do about the crow. The eagle was chairman and he asked the others to think of a ...

PHILIPPINES CATTLE TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 13 September 1947

PHILIPPINES CATTLE TRADE Befor-e the war, a useful trade bad been developed with the Philippine Islands for the export oi live cattle from the Northern leases of the Territory to the Philippines. This trade was of particular benefit to the Territory for two reasons! Firstly, by vir tue of their slaughtering arrange ments, the Philippines Govern ment imposed no special restric tions concerning cattle tick infes tation and certain other conditions which are common in Nox*th Aus tralia. Secondly, the type of cattle required were available from Northern leases and yet were not acceptable at profitable prices in Australian markets. Quite recently, negotiations were completed for a resumption of this trade, and towards the end of August the first shipload of such cattle was loaded in Dar win. The cattle at present being ex ported are subject to scrutiny by officers of the Animal Industry Section, and up the the present there has been no cause for com plaint on the grounds of either type o...

SUPPLIES OF FEEDING MEALS FOR POULTRY FARMERS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 13 September 1947

SUPPLIES OF FEEDING MEALS FOR POULTRY FARMERS A letter has been received from the Under Secretary for Agricul ture in Western Australia in which it is stated that the Under Secre tary would be glad to cater where possible, for genuine poultry far mers in the Darwin Area, in ar ranging for the supply of feeding meals of various types, he, how ever, points out that these sup plies will only be available to those poultry farmers who are producing eggs on a commercial basis and are dependent on .these operations. Western Australian poultry farmers are rationed in respect of these meals and the Western Aus tralian officials are naturally loth to make supplies available to far mers outside that State on more advantageous terms than those under which the Western Austra lian farmers operate. In an effort to dettVmine the number of genuine poultry far mers in the Darwin Area an in spection was recently made by a field officer of the Lands Branch to ascertain the number of birds run by the va...
