PEOPLE WHO NEVER LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

PEOPLE WHO NEVER LAUGH. ' . Tkerd is supposod to bo only ono tribo of people in the world who never laugh, and they are tJio Veddas, the aboriginal inhabitants of Ceylon. And, bearing out the truth of the proverb, "Laugh and grow fat," the Veddas are the slenderest, j most emaciated people in the world. For nearly two thousand years, accord ing to the best chronicles, these people, now almost extinct, have preserved the same characteristics, and no one, so far as history reveals, has ever seen a smile on tho face of one of them, or heard a laugh while in their section of Ceylon. Tile Veddas are divided into three dis tinct groups. The rock Veddas dwell almost entirely among' the Bintenne jungles, in caves or clefts in tho rock. They are skilful archers, bringing down bats, owls, crows and kites, which con stitute their principal food. They will not, for religious reasons, touch tho boar, elephant, or buffalo. . The village Veddas livo, in small colonies, along tho eastern coast, and...

LAND SURVEY IN AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

LAND SURVEY IN AFRICA. One of the most useful instruments in usfe by survoyors is tho odometer for mea suring distances by the combination of a single wheel and a cyclometer. This is trundled along the ground in a straight line, and the readings of tho in dicator show exactly the distance travers ed. By this means the surfaeo measure ments are obtained with exactness even when tho ground is rolling and difficult of measurement in any other fashion, but tho surveying party for determining tho boundary between the Knglish nnd French claims in the Sierra Leone soon found that the measurements were absurdly short of the probable* distances. The perambulator was trundled by ono of the natives attached to the party,-and after some observation it was found that they could not comprehend tho reason for trundling the odometer 'along tho ground. They'were willing to make conccssiou to. tho white man to the extent of pushing the wheel before them so long as they were in sight, but considering ...
