WINDBAG'S WITHDRAWAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
WINDBAG'S WITHDRAWAL. Tho first bombshell that was flung into the arena was the withdrawal of the N.S.W. champion. Windbag, follow- ing his excellent run in the Graven Plate. Although the horse incurred a penalty by his meritorious win, and would have carried 10st. 1lb., in the Cup, he was particularly favored and was backed until his owner scratched him on account of lameness. His tem- porary retirement from the track was mourned by not a few.
GENERAL LUDENDORFF Synthetic Gold Hoax. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
GENERAL LUDENDORFF Synthetic Gold Hoax. A Munish newspaper states that General von Ludendorff has recently been the object of an attempted fraud, which previously has usually been prac- tised on visitors from the country. A respectable-looking man, who was in- troduced to him by a friend, told him that he discovered a chemical process for making synthetic gold, and gave an exhibition of his powers in the General's sitting-room, where he broke up a clod of earth, and* threw the pieces into a liquid he had brought with him. The paper states that grains of gold appear- ed, at the bottom of the glass containing the liquid. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; General von Ludendorff, so the paper says, was convinced by this demonstra- tion and paid frequent visits to the man as well as recommending him to his friends. The paper adds, however, that before the matter had gone any &nbsp; further, the man decamped from Munish on hearing that the police were after him, and has...

FEDERAL TERRITORY CRICKET SECOND ROUND COMPLETED WESTLAKE DEFEATS EASTLAKE The second round of the Federal Territory Cricket Competition was completed last Saturday, when a hot northerly wind affected the play of both batsmen and fielders. The most notable match of the day was that of Westlake v. Eastlake, on the latter's wicket, the match resulting in a win for the visiting team by a narrow margin. Eastlake, after dismissing Westlake for 118, required 168 to win, with but 105 minutes remaining for play. Good batting resulted, but Eastlake were all out for 148, which was hit up in 85 minutes. Queanbeyan and Northbourne lead the point score in the A grade, neither team having lost a match, while Eastlake and South Eastlake lead in the B grade.

TWO THINGS AT ONCE [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926
TWO THINGS AT ONCE "One of the most delightful things about broadcasting, and a good loud speaker is that one can do two things, at once—carry on real work with a background of melodious sound." This fact is stated by a writer in the Lon- don "Radio Times," who adds, "One can take a rest cure, nowadays, in the midst of absorbing occupations." It is on this account largely that radio is popular with Australian women. While doing her housework a woman can set the loud speaker in action and hear the market prices of household commodities, the social notes, talks on such subjects as infant welfare, hints on housekeeping, the cheerio talk, a talk on home cooking, and recipes and sundry musical items, in the afternoon the broadcasting stations spend most of &nbsp; the time with the musical programmes and readings, but if any women take an interest in horseracing, they can get the results over the air immediately each race finishes.

GOULBURN [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926
GOULBURN The arrival in Goulburn of Francis Sirtles during his record breaking motor '.ash from Darwin to Melbourne last Saturday, was made most spectacular by the car bursting into flameç. Luckily, with the use of a fire extinguisher, the olaze was subdued before much serious lamage resulted ,and only half an hour .vas lost. » 4 » A little batch of applications has been lodged with the Goulburn minlng'war Jen for authority to search for petro- leum and mineral oils near Goulburn city. . . .

Long Arm of the Law. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926
Long Arm of the Law. Seldom, indeed, can a crime be brought home after such a lapse of years as in the case of a gardener in Santiago, Cuba, who was arrested re- cently for a murder committed two aecadcs ago. Eugene Aram, however, was hanged for the murder of Clarke 14 years after -he event, and, In another elghteenth cpntury case, a man named Horne was e'xeduted for a child murder after 35 years, while Governor Wall was hang- ed In 1602 for a crime committed In 1782.. What must surely be the most re- markable Instance of the long arm of the law, however, concerned a much '.esser offence. Sir James Fitzjamea Stephen records that in 1863 he prose- cuted for the Crown a man charged with stealing a leaf from a parish reg- ister in 1803! The prisoner was ac- quitted.

Roman Relic in America, [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926
Roman Relic in America, ! America would seem lo oe one of the least likely places in the world in which to find Roman remains, seeing that the Romans were Ignorant of its existence. Yet not long ago a rnaro'8 head of Augustus Caesar was' drawn up by a station dredge from the Hud- son River. No ,one knows for certain how the relic got there, but It Is supposed that some early Mediterranean trader car- ried an old Roman, statue as ballast, afterwards throwing it overboard Into the Hudson at a period when ancient sculptures were considered valueless. The head is declared to be a piece of orst-century work executed in Carrara marble. It must have been in the ..iver a long time, as.it was embedded ten feet in the mud.
