JUMPING COCKLES! [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 23 January 1929

JUMPING COCKLES! {Sometimes, as yoK ^aik along a sr-n.f'y beach, you 'win see at the edge of the water little jets rising from the surface of the sand. These are not the work of lobworms or other creatr.res of that kind. The sauirtcrs are cocklrs. If yo'i have a friend vith you, point out one of the jets and ask him to dig out the cockle that is making it. He may work for hours, hut he Trill not catch the cockle, which, than''s to its powerful 'foot,' can. burro-v tmich faster than the ordinary man can dig. The little spurts of water are caus ed by a peculiar pump that every cockle possesses. By its aid, it suc':s a stream of water down through its gills, and then ejects it. The 'foot' is a remarkable affair which acts not only as a spade but also as a real foot. By means of' it the cocV.le can 3ump a)-c--ot iu t'i» r,.o?t nr.tive v.ay. as 7on v ill fir;d if you manage to catch one napping and throw it to the surface bv means of a .sudden stroke of the spade.

NEW YEAR'S DAY NOT UNIVERSALLY OBSERVED. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 23 January 1929

NEW YEAR'S DAY NOT UNIVEBSAIiI.Y OBSERVED. Awakening on the first of January you feel a curious exhilaration, and, sleep not having entirely departed, you are at a loss to account for it alL Why, you ask yourself, should I feel like this, and for no particular rea son? Then gradually you wake up, and in waking you remember it is the first day of the year — another year stretches before you, 365 days — with their unknown joys and unknowta sor rows, and this you realise is what has unconsciously permeated your being, with a strange sense of foreboding and excitement. The first day of the year makes you feel as on the brink of an adventure; there is a glorious uncertainty in the 365 days before you, and uncertainty, after alL adds a zest to living. But on contemplation is the first of January responsible for all this exhil aration, or is it just because it is the first day of the year* For 1st Janu ary has not always marked the begin ning of a new year, and even to-day is not universal...

CRUSADE AGAINST FOX HUNTING 'BLOOD SPORTS'' CONDEMNED. The West of England has seen the commencement of an influential crus ade agains fox hunting. The move ment was started by Henry Nation, a prominent West Somerset farmer, who announced that he intended to forbid .hunting on his land in future. His example was followed by two other large land owners, and later Mrs. Bonham Christie determined not to allow hunting over- her estaate of 2000 acres near Frome. In a letter to the South and West Wilts fox hunt, Mrs. Christie, after denouncing what she describes as 'barbarous cruelty' to a 'poor de fenceless animal,' says, 'when your pack becomes a drag hunt (in which an artificially laid trail is used) I will help you all I can and allow you any where over my land.' The movement may be regarded as an outcome of the recent controversy which threatened to split the Boyal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The victory of Stephen Col eridge 'and other members who want the society ...

BIG FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 23 January 1929

BIG FIELDS. In discussing large fields in England, the London 'Sporting Life** recently mentioned that at the first extra meet ing at Newmarket in June, 1915, there ?? c» c .11 muuers r or seven races on the first day, 154 on the second, and 152 on the third. Runners were so nu merous because of war-time restric tions on racing. There were 43 run ners for one raee at Newmarket. 'The largest field remembered in Sydney was 43, that being for the Rosehill Cup, of £200 and £50 trophy, run at Eosehill on June 19, 1897. The dis tance was six furlongs, and the race was won by E.

For a week, he said, not a man in the place drank anything .stronger than tea, notwithstanding that the wca ther 1*^3 extremely hot. The barmaids had, in consequence, no work to do, and their employers gave them notice of dismissal.

The Sunday takings flf the hotels in the. town, he added, averaged in ordinary times, from £40 to £30, but on the Sun day of strike week, some of the hotels took only a few shillings for liquor.
