Accidents. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
Accidents. .n. serious accident happened, yesterday ta ,i. a young man named William Hinton, em- ; ployed by Messrs Howard, Hancorn as a driller at a bore being put down on Alroy. It appears that they had just completed a run at the bore, when it is usual to mark the rope to indicate the depth. This had been overlooked by some, reason or other, and Hinton got up to mark the rope as it was being hauled up and somehow slipped, with the result that his right hand was-. caught on the rope as it wound round the drum and only the thumb escaped. In try- ing to save his fall the fingers of the. other hand were very badly squeezed. The Am- bulance was immediately notified and left with Dr. Brown. The patient was met on the Silsoe road on the way in and was conveyed without delay to the General Hos- pital where he is doing as well as can be expected. Another accident happened to a young fellow, named George Street, at Strath- darr. He received a very severe cut on the foot and was conveyed to...
HERE AND THERE. More Rain-Making. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
I HERE AND THERE. I --- More Rain-Making. H Lust year Mr. Charles M. Hatfield enter jsed into a contract to furnish the farmers lof the Medicine Hat district in South Al tberta, with moisture from the sky, at a Specified price per inch.- This particular apart of Canada tíad previously suffered four Successive droughts and crop failures. Mr. öiatfield said that his first successful ex- periments were conducted in California Bs far back as 1902, when, after satisfac- tory demonstrations, the business men of his district engaged him for the season. Success in California is said to have been * followed by triumphs in Texas cotton lands, and in the -Yukon. The United Agricultural Association of Medicine Hat was so im- pressed with his credentails, that in 1021 ic undertook to pay Mr. Hatfield S000 dol * lars for eight inches of rain between May 1 and August 1. In the month of A*pril, 1!»21. the rainmaker began his prepara- tions, by erecting his plant on the shores of Chappice Lake, 22 m...
"Fawkes Hall". [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
"Fawkes Hall'". The little discussion in the House of Com ¡ mons on the subject ? of the nationality of |\> Guy Fawkes recalls Pennant's curious theory ; öüüt Vauxhall. The great antiquary and traveller believed that Vauxhall was named after Guy Fawkes, being a corruption of Fawkes Hall, a residence of the family. Having assumed the connection-on little warrant-he went on to protest against Mich a choice of name : "In foreign parts '* a colonne infame would have been erected on the spot, but the site is now (1790). oc- cupied by Marble Hall. Cumberland Tea Gardens, and several other buildings."
The Clan Donald. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
The Clan Donald. The Clan Donald is one of the few big > families that can claim three chieftains, and the order of precedence of the trio is ar- ranged very simply-by the toss pf a coin, it so happened that at the recent clan din- ner in the North it was announced that the three chiefs would be .present, Clan îanald, Glengarry, and Sleat, each of whom had appended his signature to a treaty drawn up in 15)11. when the parties were" as far apart as England. France, and Rus- sia, acknowledging the fairness of the coin toss as a solver of if difficulty if ever the three should meet at any particular func . tion. It so happened that Glengarry was J not present at the dinner, so Clanranald fl-V^^tn.ssed Sleat and won.
The End of "She". [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
Thc End of "She". It is almost as hard for an English nov- elist to kill a popular hero opheroine as it is to create that hero or heroine. Ever since he wrote "She." more than a quarter of a century ago, Sir Rider Haggard has been. * dogged by her shadow, for his readers would not let him away from her. He has as a consequence, written books about her, for he has a third "one appearing this spring, onlx in it "She" does come to an end. Within its pages we shall find Aye- sha, the full name of "She", reborn as the daughter of an Arab chief and of trans- cendent beauty, but cold, and a searcher after knowledge rather than love ; and it Ts this search which brings a close td* her career in English fiction.

If we printed it. the authorities would ordain us to take it far a model, and henceforth never print anything inferior to it.

Piano Causes Sensation. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
Piano Causes Sensation. tA. grand piano silpped off the stage and over the footlights when a concert was in progress at the Temperance Hall, Hudders- field, recently. Above the din which fol- lowed a woman's scream was heard, and it was found that Miss Molly Richardson, who is well known as an artist, had been pinned below. When extricated her right leg was found to be fractured. When tho incident occurred members of the audience were seized with panic, and several women fainted.
The Age of the Earth. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
The Age of the Earth. There appears to be no prospect of fin- ality in scientfic ideas of the age of our earth. Usher's chronology, by which the Creation was fixed at 5926 years ago, has been abandoned. There has been friendly rivalry between astronomers and geolog- ists in trying to solve the problem, the lat- ter getting far ahead of the former. ¿Lord Kelvin's reckoning' eclipsed all previous ones, but in a recent address at the Geo- logical Society Professor Eddington said that "Lord Kelvin's estimate need not now be taken any more' seriously than Archbishop Usher's." Using the rate at which the earth's rotation is slowing down, he showed that it has taken more than 10,000 years since the duration of the day was between three and four hours, and the moon was born !

Travelling: Stock Case. At the Longreach Summons Court this morning before the Police Magistrate (Mr. R. Curtis) when the case Longreach Stock Inspector v. T. Payne (in which Payne was charged with diverting from his route without permission) was called. Mr. R. Peterson, who appeared for the Stock In- spector, stated that the owner of the stock had approached the inspector and satis- fied him that the offence was not as serious as had at first appeared. The inspector had agreed to the case being dropped on the. defendant paying costs and making a donation of £3 to the Longreach Hos- pital. The drover had gone back over his track, but there was a reason for it. and the explanation has been made to the stock inspector. The case was dismissed in consideration of the ar- rangement between the parties. .I«"«"»&lt;|«"»&lt;"««| »www mm i tam ninmmwawo^i
The Cartouche. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
The Cartouche. That frequent reference to the cartouche in the descriptions of the tombs of Thebes hus a deeper significance than some cor- respondents appear to imagine. The car- touche of a buried Egyptian was much more than a formal rite. The more often the name of the dead could be inscribed within the walls ofVthe tomb the greater was the guarantee of immortality. For the Egyp- tians believed that if no record were left within the tomb itself of the name of the departed, the unfortunate voyager to the Elysian fields would lose all sense of his identity, with consequent destruction of his soul.
Footnote to History. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
Footnote to History. Here is un interesting foot note to his- tory," found in a book called the "Chick- , asaw Nation." In a speech made when a , statue of Sequoyah, a Cherokee Indian, was | placed in the Capital at Washington, D.C., j this statement was made by Senator Owen, j of Oklahoma :-"No alphabet in all the ! world reaches the simplicity and the value | of the Cherokee alphabet, as invented by j Sequoyah. With the Sequoyah alphabet a ! Cherokee could learn to spell in one day. | So great an intellectual accomplishment j was this that Canon Kingsley named the . great red oedar of California 'sequoias,' I because they were typical of the greatest j native North American Indian." j
Beer for Schoolchildren. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
Beer for Schoolchildren. It will probably' astonish, if it does not shock, the present generation to learn, as they did from the House of Commons de- bate, that less than 4 0 years ago beer was provided as a matter of course to boys at public schools, and even at preparatory schools. But it was very small beer, and its alcoholic strength was probably below that of the ginger-pop that could be bought at the tuck-shop in unlimited measure. From the physiological point of view the practice of supplying small boys with beer was innocuous. But one remembers that it encouraged the idea that all beer was alike; and when the youthful palate came in con- tact, as it sometimes did, outsdie the school walls, with the strong brews that were com- mon in those days, the consequences were disastrous.
