THROUGH AUSTRALIAN WILDS XV.==Difficulties of the Pioneer (Specially written for the Mirror by FRANCIS B1RTLES.) FOLLOWING UP THE CREEK. Choosing the country most suitable for easy travelling we found that an open clay belt fol lowed the coastal sandridges on one side. On the other inland side were dense scrub thickets. Finding that we could not get across a salt creek, we ran down to its mouth looking for fresh water. It was sunset as we reached the sandy beach and too late to look around for 'soaks.' Clive was complaining about a headache and was thirsty. I gave him some quinine and a drink out of our scanty supply of water. Next morning one blackboy had gone to look for water.
