GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 23 January 1930

GRASS. Mantle of green, before our eyes you spread, And clothe the plains where gentle sheep shall tread. Or cattle, questing for their evening meal, Or dingo after prey will o'er you steal. We learned to pray for just a glimpse of you, When o'erhead stretched a sky of cloudless blue, While all around the land was dry and bare, Beneath the sun-god's unrelenting stare. But since the rain has come you've clothed again With your green dress the hillside and the plain, Covering the tracks where a grim drought has trod, While thankful prayers at evening rise to God. —EDITH J. KENNEDY.

TO THE MAN IN THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 23 January 1930

TO THE MAN IN THE CITY. ''To the Man in the City'' was writ- ten by an old mate of mine, who died some time ago. It has not appeared in print, and I am forwarding it on my mate's behalf. — '' Echo.'' You say that bush life's a picnic From very beginning to end, If you 'll step a bit nearer, to hear me the clearer, I'll prove you're in error, my friend. You're one of those simple town Johnnies, The sort that the big city breeds; And I very much fear, that you have no idea Of the life the poor bushman leads. You have lots of pleasures and pastimes, No doubt you enjoy them immense, While we sit alone on a log or a stone Surrounded by silence intense. You sleep in white sheets and pyjamas. The best is the food that you eat; We've often to camp, in a swag that is damp, And live on hard dampers and meat. The flies and mosquitoes near eat us, The blowflies get into the meat, then all through the wet ''The Bar- coo'' we get And can't keep a thing down we eat. You lie nice and warm in your b...

A CASTLE FOR MUMMY AND ME. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 23 January 1930

A CASTLE FOR MUMMY AND ME. We've emptied the milk-jug, we've eaten each bun, And mum, with a laugh, says she thinks tea's done, So it's time for the bricks, and I dart to the shelf, Where they're sure to be standing, put there by myself; For I 'spect that you know, the first thing after tea, I build up a castle for mummy and me. Although it's a castle, it's not very tall, So mummy and I just pretend to be small, I call out to mum, ' ' There is only one chair,' ' And mummy calls back, saying, ''She doesn't care.' ' For if she's on the chair, and I'm on her knee, There's nothing else needed for mum- my and me. There is only one room, for I've not many bricks (I got them last birthday, one which I was six), But mum always says she doesn't   want more, For the very best castles are often one floor. So I don't say aloud that I think it looks wee, For I know it is home, just to mummy and me. Some day, when I'm older, I'll have of my own A monstrous big castle — I'll build it ...

RAILWAY GAUGES. UNIFICATION QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 23 January 1930

RAILWAY GAUGES. UNIFICATION QUESTION. The unification of the railway gauges has been raised again by the Common- wealth Railway Commissioner (says ''The Commonwealth Engineer'' ), but even supposing public opinion was in favour of such a change the present financial situation would preclude any definite step being taken. With the railways of Australia incapable of earn- ing a return, on the capital expenditure, it would be beyond all reason to spend many millions on their conversion, par- ticularly as such conversion would not show any commensurate advantage, and might quite reasonably in the course of years prove to be a retrograde step. The expenditure of capital on new works to provide additional facilities, such as is the case in connection with the building of the new coastal line from Grafton to South Brisbane, may be jus- tified, but to spend perhaps £50,000,000 on changing the gauge of existing lines, which would not induce one extra pas- senger to travel, though it might sa...

THE CENTRAL QUEENSLAND HERALD, ROCKHAMPTON. THURSDAY, JANUARY 23, 1930. A STANDARD GAUGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 23 January 1930

THE CENTRAL QUEENSLAND HERALD,         ROCKHAMPTON.                 THURSDAY, JANUARY 23, 1930.         A STANDARD GAUGE.           Australia's railways, having in the thirteen years ending 1928 lost £38,871,859 that has had to be recovered in extra taxation, are nothing if not spectacular. Designed originally to carry Australian taxpayer and his en- terprises, they have not in 13 years paid working expenses and interest on capi- tal. Neither have they paid mainten- ance of permanent way, or renewals of rolling stock, so that no man knows how much of the £311, 131,906 that is owing on them is represented by rolling stock that has not rolled for years, and rails and sleepers that have long since rotted and rusted aw...

PRICE CONTROL OF PRIMARY PRODUCTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 23 January 1930

PRICE CONTROL OF PRIMARY PRODUCTS. When returns are not so profitable as the producers consider they should be, there is generally an outcry for some sort of price control, and Australians have not provided any exception to this rule. What with guaranteed prices for sugar and cotton, bounties for butter   and dried fruits, together with numer- ous other commodities benefiting by   various stages of protection, the cost to the country has been enormous. But yet the producers are not satisfied, and since the prices for wheat and wool have dropped so low there has been an outcry for the introduction of control. Experiments have proved that the   only occasion when marketing control can be organised with success is when there is absence of outside production to interfere, but this is certainly not the case with either wheat or wool. Any such operations would, then, merely tend to influence customers toward other pro- ducing countries, and in this c...

OUR SERIAL STORY. All Rights Reserved. The Enchanted Peril [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 23 January 1930

  OUR SERIAL STORY.     All Rights Reserved.   ————   The Enchanted Peril   By   WILLIAM LE QUEUX.   Dr. Warringord returned to his house a little before 12 o'clock. At that hour Conrad Pears arrived and was shown into the study, where the doctor, smoking an excellent cigar, was awaiting him. ''Fetter and Cooke are outside in the taxi,'' he said, ''I know you don't want them in till you are ready.'' ''That's clever of you, Conrad,'' said Warringford. ''They are hardly the type one wishes in one's house longer than can be helped.'' CHAPTER XIX. AT that moment Mellor entered the room bearing a tray of sandwiches which Warringford had ordered pre- viously. ''I mustn't forget the creature needs of my guest,'' said the doctor as he took the tray into the inner room, carefull[y] closing the door behind him. A few moments later he reappeared. ''I shall be some little time in here,'' he s...

CHAPTER XX. A Point to Peter. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 23 January 1930

CHAPTER XX. - A Point to Peter. When Warringford entered the in- ner room it was to find Sennett partly recovered from the effects of the drug. This was just as he wished it, and he congratulated himself on having timed the drug's action so accurately. The effect had been to leave Sennett in a condition which just allowed him to be capable of walking with assistance. The doctor did not care to run the risk involved in transferring an uncon-   scious man through London.   ' ' And now, friend Sennett,'' he said,   going across to his victim, ''I pro-   pose to let you leave this hospitable   house for that of some friends of mine. You will find them charming people.'' Later, Warringford went to the door and beckoned Fetter and Cooke, who at once entered the room. Their ap- pearance was a shock to Sennett, for, although he was not expecting his future hosts to be aristocrats, he never imagined that they would be of the ty...
