AUSTRALIA'S ONLY STORK AN ABORIGINAL LEGEND [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 11 October 1947

AUSTRALIA'S ONLY STORK AX ABORIGINAL LEGEND Australia's only stork, the Jabiru, is one of the quaintest and m-lst lovable of swamp dwel lers. Moreover he is the only bird in the world incapable of uttering a cry. A delightful aboriginal legend tells the reason why he is dumb. In the long ago the Jabiru was not only a very garrulous bh'd but inquisitive. He just could not keep out of other- people's affairs, and went about chuckling and prattling like a gossiping old woman. The aboriginal initiation rites are always held in strict secrecy; no woman is ever allow ed to be present. This particular old busy-body of a Jabiru hid him self -in a tree above the bora ground, watched the proceedings, and subsequently told two lubras all that took place at the cere mony. They, in turn, started to babble like the bi'ook, and soon all the women of the tribe had heard about the secret's. The men were furious, so they captured the bird and sentenced it to have its tongue bitten off by a carpet sna...

'Every night a get a cheese to take home to my children. Please let me take ja. cheese to them before you eat me.' 'Where ai'e the cheeses ?' ask ed the wolf. 'They are in a well in the man's yard.' 'In a well ! How do you get them ?' 'Oh, I ,go down in the pail and bring up* a cheese,' replied the fox. 'Well, I like cheese,' said the wolf. 'I think I shall go with you.' Now this did 7iot please the fox, for he had planned to escape by going alone. But there was noth ing else to be done. 'Very well; come on,' he said. The moon was very bright that night.
