WOOL SALES FINE SORTS SOUGHT [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
WOOL SALES FINE SORTS SOUGHT The difference between prices for fine wools and broad wools has ex- tended of late. Any chango In rates Cor the "former has been upward, but the chief cause of the greater gap be- tween values has been the further drop 3f par to 5 per cent. In figures for the latter. That Is regrettable. Statlon íry values for broad parcels with fine lines showing a definitely quotable ad- vance would have provided a more ac- ceptable souice of chango.

EVERYDAY TALKS The Assets of Education Must Be Kept Liquid [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
EVERYDAY TALKS The Assets of Education Must Be Kept Liquid Knowledge is not necessarily power. Many pedants aie versed in"all man- ner of lore, which Is utterly useless to them or to anyone else. Many men and women spend life- times In acquiring knowledge which they will never use. A little knowledge is not such a dan- gerous thing as the proveí b assures us it is if its owner knows how to em- ploy it. There aie people who are not widely react, who have never had time to mas- ter completely the grammar of their native tongue, who are yet ablci and useful and successful. \ To a person who can put his know- ledge to work, the more he acquires the moie valuable he is. But like all otner good assets this one 'must bo liquid, or it is good for nothing. Stored away, it is worthless as the junk which people store away In old attics, or as wotild be money which was stored away In a vatilt rind never taken out and ¿mt to work. Kept within reach whetc it can be constantly employed it is extre...

PLAYGROUNDS PROVIDED FOR THE CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
PLAYGROUNDS PROVIDED FOR THE CHILDREN The activities of the Children's Com- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; mittee had been mainly devoted to- &nbsp; wards the establishment of children's playgrounds in the various centres of Canberra and as an indication of the &nbsp; splendid work of the committee, play- grounds had been constructed at Ac- &nbsp; ton, Ainslie, Westlake, North Ainslie, and Causeway.

FIRST WHITE GIRL Born in Canberra Victorian Lady's Claim Melbourne, Thursday [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
FIRST WHITE GIRL Born in Canberra Victorian Lady's Claim Melbourne, Thursday "My mother always said that I was the first white girl born in Canberra," said Mrs. G. Worcester, of Dingley Dell, Moonee Ponds, in giving some re- miniscences about her early life in the present Federal Capital Territory. She was christened by a visiting priest, for there was no clergyman of any denomination then. This was in November, 1851, and aboriginals were plentiful and fierce. "On one occa- sion," she said, "a relative of mine was speared in the back , and then swam the river with a spear sticking there. There were no &nbsp; shops and the few white people were small graziers. As a rule, sheep let out on land far from the homestead would not have survived the attacks of the blackfellows. The people got all their needs from Sydney by bullock waggon, and my father often used to say later what a fine sight it was to see per- haps 14 bullocks in the yoke."

Sturt's Record. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
Sturt's Record. Sturt's 850-mile voyage down the un- known rivers, Murrumbidgee and Mur- ray, in 1830, broke all records in the annals of the Navy. The whaleboat and light skiff were launched fifteen miles above the junction of the Lach- lan and Murrumbidgee Rivers. Prac- tically for the whole distance the eight men pulled in turn at the oars, row- ing at the rate of about 21 miles a day, taking 32 days for the trip down, and 39 days, pulling against the current, returning. Their rations, after leaving Lake Alexandrina behind, consisted of ?lb. of flour per diem, and ¼lb. of tea per week. Fish they found unpalat- able, and of game, a dearth. Five years later, Sturt was granted 4200 acres in recognition of past discoveries. George M'Leay, second in command, was rewarded with 1250 acres. Of Harris, Hopkinson, and Fraser, soldiers, not recorded; Clayton, Mulholland, and Macnamee, convicts, not even emanci- pation. And so an appreciative Gov- ernment gives thanks.

FROM FAR AND WIDE Durable Living Cement. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; FROM FAR AND WIDE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Durable Living Cement. Pew visitors to Cherbourg, the French seaport, fail to notice the im- mense breakwater that protects the harbour. A curious story is told of the building of this great breakwater, which represents an engineering feat of the most difficult kind. The tenac- ity of common mussels of the shore cement themselves together, and to rocks and stones. Taking advantage of this idea, instead of extending the masonry indefinitely he placed in the sea immense quantities of loose bould- ers and stones, and upon these tons of mussels were tipped. The shellfish speedily bound the stones with a ce- ment much more durable and satis- factory than any man could have pro- vided.
