BROLGA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

BROLGA Dancing bird of Australiu. Sacred- to the aborigines, who believe that a beautiful native dancing girl named Brolgu wa.s kidnapped by giants, who later changed her into n great crane. A legend of the aborigines has been handed down the ages re garding the Australian dancing bird, the Hrolga. A beautiful girl named Brolga, far famed for her dancing, was kidnapped by giants who, by witchcraft, changed her into a great crane. In that form only was Brolga allowed to re turn and dance before the camps, of her people. By and by more of these birds appeared, descendants of the lovely dancing girl, and all of them are now called Brolgas. They are sacred to many tribes in whose corroborees their fan tastic dances are incorporated. Ijc :{ & :;?.

THEY WERE DIFFERENT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

THEY WERE DIFFERENT ? ? v * — — Kinp Joe— or Robert Joel   Cooper — was the only man ever to become king of a tribe of Aborig ines. He ruled for many years on Melville Island, North Austra lia. Blue-eyed, of commanding ap pearance and over six feet in height he was known as a most upright and honorable man. In 1881, having travelled across the continent from South Australia where he was born, he won the fierce Melville Islanders by his utter fearlessness. 'King Joe' was initiated into all the secret cere monies of the tribe, but he refused ever to discuss them with another white man, sayinpr he would de fend them with his last breath. Before Cooper became King the Melville Islanders were given a wide berth by black and white alike. The new king attended personally to the administration of justice, tracking down tribal law-breakers who had fled to es- cape punishment. Armed with native weapons and clad only in a loin-cloth he would follow the tracks and never returned wi...

"THE TERRITORY TRAMP" MEETS OLD FRIENDS TRIP TO WINIEKE GOLD FIELD [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

'THE TERRITORY TRAMP' MEETS OLD FRIENDS TRIP TO WINIEKE GOLD FIELD After a long spell away from Alice Springs the 'Territory Tramp' came back to renew acquaint ances with his old friends around the town, and again views the surroundings about Winieke gold fields, this   field so familiar to him in the years gone by. Arriving by car at Alice Springs after a long and tiresome journey from a very distant station, we decided to camp near the race course, on the banks of the Charles, an old familar place to me. After a night's good rest,   we decided next morning to con tinue into town and have a look around and see my old pals once again, knowing quite well many had passed on to the better land. However, an hour or so in the town I soon found myself chatting to a few old timers, and I was amazed to see the progress that had taken place in Alice Springs since my last visit. A walk down Todd street was a surprise to my friend and I. After a visit was paid to the ...

THE NAMATJIRA EXHIBI- TION AND HERMANNS- BURG ARTISTS This exhibition was held in con- junction with the Methodist Spring Fair and opened by the Rev. H. Griffiths. In declaring the exhibition open   Mr. Griffiths pointed out that it was the first occasion on which a framed exhibition of paintings had been on view for the general public of Alice Springs. It was also the first time the the renown- ed aboriginal artist had himself attended an exhibition to witness the wide and enthusiastic appre- ciation of the public. Albert Namatjira received the applause of the gathering and watched the people who came to see and buy his work. There were many enquiries for more of his landscapes but it is understood that no more parchments of this artist will be available in the Northern Territory for some con- siderable time. Enquiries for his work are coming from far and wide and capital city exhibitions make a heavy demand upon him. The next exhibition will be held in Brisbane in the...

MOUNT ISA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

MOUNT ISA The ainazingfy. wealthy Ml. Isa Mine (Queensland) was accident ally found by a stony-broke and lonely nrosnector John Miles. While resting on a hill-top he idly poked the earth with his knife and uncovered a small piece of rock which he put in his pocket. Later he showed his mate the stone and out of sheer curiosity decided to send it to be assayed. After six months the prospector called for his mail and found the stone was full of silver and lead. A rush set in to Mt: Isa, but the country was wild and ' waterless. Miles' mate had to give away a rich lease worth .L'40,000 for a cowhide to make buckets for feeding and watering horses* Late arrivals at the mountain disconsolately took up low ground that was left around the base, but by the Irony of fate it was the late comers who were the luckiest, for the richest loden were all found in the lew country. The waterless and barren Mount Isa 1b now the site of a flourishing town of 7,000 people with parks, clubs, swimming pools...

ADELAIDE ABATTOIRS CATTLE MARKET The number of cattle submitted last Monday was considerably in advance of last week, 1,595 com ing to hand, including 1,215 from Queensland, 180 from northern areas of this State, 100 from the South and South-East, and 100 fx*om local paddocks. The cata logue, from a trade point of view, was quite good, for most of the station cattle were well-bred and in good trade to prime condition. Pleavyweight bullocks and me dium-weight steers were fairly well represented, as also were cows. Heifers, yearlings and calves, however, were very scarce. The market opened -to a splendid demand from local and country trade, smallgoodsmen and inter state buyers, and sales through out were of a buoyant nature at values fully equal to, and for light and handyweights in advance of last week's average rates.

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Good afternoon to you all ! There's a touch of summer in the air isn't there ? Maybe that is partly the reason for the contin ued chatting about the local Mannequin Parade — so many of the frocks, etc. shown were just right for the days when the tem perature soars. And are we proud of our local girls ? And grateful to all those who co-operated to give such a successful and enjoy able evening in support of 'Miss Northern Territory.'. The local R.S.L. nominated Daphne Camp bell, remembering that and finding these lines I wondered if they would like to share them. They explain the reactions of many when watching 'Marching Men.' I can't throw streamers at a sacred thing; I cannot speak when I am filled with awe. How could I wave a flag,, how could I sing At those young, tired, tight faced men of war ? And could . shout when some stood by my. side Whose faces showed them fight ing pent-up tears ? Can empty words express. a-full heart's pride ? ., '.'...

LIQUEURS AND ADVOCAATS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 4 October 1947

LIQUEURS AND ADVO CAATS A revised schedule oi! maximum prices for liqueurs and advocaats by the bottle and half-bottle in Victoria is published in the .Com monwealth Gazette of last week. The Acting Commonwealth Prices Commissioner (Mi'. II. E. Bishop) said the new schedule re placed one which had become out of-date following1 the reduction in sales tax last year and the intro duction of many new lines for which prices had been approved. When the sales tax was reduced traders were .permitted to make their own calculation of the lower price so that the benefit could be passed on to the public immed iately. The new schedule, there fore, does not change existing prices but consolidates all previ ous orders for the convenience of both the trade and the public. The new order refers only to the sale of liqueurs and advo caats by the bottle and half-bottle; prices by the glass and nobbier remain unaltered.

TO THE EDITOR ANZAC HILL RESERVE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947

TO THE EDITOR ANZAC HILL RESERVE Sir. — May I crave a little apace in your valuable paper to correct an erroneous statement appearing in your issue of October 4. In reporting the results of the football match between the Veter ans and Combined Team it is stated 'It has made the old timers realise that when the school is built on the Anzac Hill Reserve, the oval will not then be available for Association matches.' I wish to point out that the portion of ground ceded to the Educational Department by the Trustees of the Reserve is the stony rise at the extreme north end and will in no way interfere with the present ground or the plans we have to make the Reserve worthy of our town. The Educa tional Department has been asked to plant a hedpre from the river to the foot of the hill. This will cross the Reserve approximately 150 feet behind the northern Koal posts and will divide the school ?portion from the public ground. The oval will only be used by the senior boys when organised match...
