The pos ition is that with two wickets still ia hand Australia has 327 runs to the ..ood. It is an old cricket saying that It is better to have runs than to have to get them, and that is where Austral ia's are at present. They have run*. England has to make them to win. In this match, tour years ago, w&- land had to make 327 to win, and fau nd by 81 runs. In Adelaide Bnglan-x had to make 375 to win and failed by 70 run*. In Sydney,, in 1908, England had to make 279 to win and failed by 49 runs. I cannot find one instance in the whole long series of test matches in which the side set to make 300 runs in the fourth inning has proved successful, so the Australia...

Thames Improvements. HUGE LANDING STAGE [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 4 January 1929
Thames Improvements. HUGE LANDING STAGE Year by year a higher standard of comfort is expected by the travelling public and the gigantic landing stage at Tilbury is one of the recent develop ments in this direction. This is only one part of a large pro gramme of improvements which is be ing carried out by the Port of London Authorityj but more than all the others it will affect the comfort of passengers. When the landing stage is complete which will be about next September, the largest ships coming up the Thames will be able to go alongside and pas sengers will be able to walk ashore; and not only that, but the gangways which they will tread will be abuost level and under cover. But ships cannot conveniently make fast alongside a pier where the tide rises and falls 21 feet, for that would mean for ever tending hawsers. So an enormous floating stage is being constructed which rises and falls with the tide and which is connected to the shore by long bridges and booms hinged at each end...

The party, which will consist of about twelve men, equipped with a string of thirty-five or more camels, are' to leave Wiluna »arly in. the New Year to re pair wellfi now in ' existence, sink more wells, and probably cut a branch track from near Anna Plains to junction' with the Canning stock route from the Kimbcrleys. The party is being sent out by the Federal and State Governments, and may take several years to complete the work.. The route was first surveyed by Mr. A. W. Canning, in 1906-07 to Halls Creekj and_ several mobs of .cattle were travelled from, the Kimberleys. to Lake Way, but as the natives proved treacherous, and the water supplies were not quite good enough, the route was abandon ed. When Thompson, Shoesmltb, and their black-boy were murdered, and th...
PADDLE-WHEEL AEROPLANE WITHOUT PROPELLOR OR WINGS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 4 January 1929
PADDLE-WHEEL AERO PLANE , - ?♦ ? WITHOUT PROPELLOR OR WINGS A young and well-known French engineer, M. Chappedelaine,- has con structed a model * 'aeroplane' which (writes the Paris correspondent of the London 'Daily Chronicle'), has nei ther propellor nor wings, yet flies! Indeed the inventor believes that a machine constructed on the lines of his model will move at between 700 and. 1000 miles an hour. It would therefore beat the sun in a race from Paris to New York. Travel lers will be able to, he says with a laugh, lunch in the Grands Boulevards and have the aperitif to the same meal on Broad vray. M. Chappedelaine is convinced that his 'gyroptere,' as he calls Ms plane less plane, is the flying machine of the near future, and his model backed up his belief in a mazing fashion. This model is only about 20 in. long, and scarcely a foot high. It is roughly like the body of an ordinary aero plane. At the sides are semi-enclosed paddle wheels such as propelled our earliest steamships...

METROPOLITAN MEMS Perth, December 31. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 4 January 1929
METROPOLITAN MEMS (From Our Own Correspondent.) Perth, December 31. Countless good resolutions will be made between now and midnight, the recording angel having to work double shift towards the closing hours of the day and of the year. Men of jovial nature will make a nuet vrith thom^n?. ves to cut out a proportion of the 'pegs' they have been accustomed to and will decide to regard tobacco in any of its various forms as a lux ury instead of a necessity and reduce their consumption of it. The elder generation of the fair sex will promise tliat^ in future minor peccadiloes of the old hian will not be rewarded with cur tain lectures, which mar the harmony that should exist in every well conduct ed homo. They will also make resolu tions to eschew as far as possible al lurements, such as bargain sales, which have a detrimental effect on the old man's purse. And the younger genera tion, who are yet seeking their Adar.is with a view to establishing modem Gardens of Eden, will vow that in ...
GERALDTON PRAISED POSSIBILITIES EMPHASISED A VISITOR'S IMPRESSIONS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 4 January 1929
GERALDTON PRAISED POSSIBILITIES EMPHA SISED A VISITOR'S IMPRESSIONS (By H.C.R., in ' ' The West Australian' ' ) With the strides of a giant Gerald ion each year is leaping more rapidly towards the goal of steady prosperity. Last year port dues were paid on one million bags of wheat; this year it is confidently expected the figures will reach 1,250,000 bags. Even at that, the yield would fall far short of what it could be. To the visitor who has toured the country at the back and north and south of this thriving centre, there is nothing to be wondered at in the confidence of the townspeople. With a rainfall of up to 20 inches, and soil the fertility of which has been proved beyond question, the future of the Vic toria district is up to a point assured. Farmers, in discussing prospects or results with each other, speak in terms of bag6, though tp the uninitiated they may condescend to rednce that to bushels. Many are wealthy, and be yond the need for scrimping and sav ing, a position ...

BOOK CONDEMNED XOVELIST AND MAGISTRATE Sir Chartres Biron, the Bow-street magistrate recently, ordered the novel 'The Well of Loneliness,' by Miss Kadclyffe-Hall, to be destroyed, says the London ' ' Daily Mirror. ' ' Defendants were Messrs Jonathan Cape, Ltd., of Bedford-square, and Mr Leonard B. Hill, Great Russell-street, ; representatives of the Pegasus Press, Paris. Sir Chartres, in a long judgment, said he had no hesitation in saying that the j book w-as an offence against public dec ency. He ordered defendants to pay costs of the ease. Points from his judgment were: — The fact that the book was well writ ten was no answer, otherwise they would be in the preposterous position , that the most obscene book would be j free from stricture. The way in which the Deity was in- : troducod seemed to be singularly inap- j propriate and disgusting. j Sir Chartres said there was a sugges tion in the book reflecting on a number j of women at the front, women of posi- j tion and character e...
