Longreach Leader FRIDAY, MAY 18, 1923. HELP THE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923
FRIDAY, MAY 18, 1923. HELP THE HOSPITAL. For sonic time past the committee of the Longreach General Hospital has been en- deavouring to. arouse interest amongst the ladies of Longreach with a view to the formation of a body to assist the committee in financing the institution. At first the idea was to form a ladies' committee as an adjunct to the present committee, but upon investigation it has been found that in other places, a separate body alto- gether is found to be the best plan. Tak- ing the case of Maryborough, we find there the existence of a guild which has a won- derful record. A letter from the secre- tary of the Maryborough League appeal's on page 14 of this issue, and we would urge the ladies of Longreach to carefully read this letter. Once having read it, we feel sure they will require but little urging to endeavour to emulate the example of the ladies of Maryborough. What the ladies of Maryborough can do, the ladies of Longreach, we feel sure, can also achieve. It is ...

Alpine Guides. The news of the death of Peter Taug- walder, the doyen of Swiss guide, will &nbsp; awaken memories to those who have visited the quaint little Alpine hamlet of Zermatt.

The cemetery of the Eng- lish Church at Zermatt is one of the most tragic to be found in Switzerland. There the visitor may see, grave after grave of &nbsp; men and women — killed on one or other of the towering mountains which arise on all sides. &nbsp;

Sydney Slums. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 25 May 1923
Sydney Slums. In his posthumously published . diary Lord Northcliffe said he failed to discover any slums in Sydney. Perhaps Lord North- cliffe-like a good many famous men that have visited the city-got his impression from the roof gardens of one of the big hotels. If he ,failed to discover slums, he could not have been thorough in his quest -riot nearly as thorough as he would have expected one of his newsmen to be. If the rest of Lord Northcliffe's opinions have not a better foundation than the statement re- ferred to, they are worth very little. Of course there are slums in Sydney, and plenty of them. It will take another fifty years to clean up all the unsavoury places in and about the city. "What absurd ideas some of these globe-trotters get into their heads. "Grace," said her father from the head of the stairs, "is that sweetheart of yours an auctioneer?" "No, father. Why ?" "Because he keeps on saying he's going going, but he hasn't gone yet." * . * * Sunday School Teacher : ...

A River on Fire. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 25 May 1923
A River on Fire, "While the Aguila Petroleum Company s tanker San Leonardo, carrying 30,000 bar- rels of oil, was discharging her cargo at Tampico on January 25, fire broke out amidships. Within a few minutes the ves- sel was an immense cauldron with oil flames mounting 400ft. Explosion of the vessel's boilers folowed quickly, and great quantities of burning oil were thrown into the Panuco River, already covered with a thick coating of waste oil that instantly ignited. The Panuco became a field of flames for half a mile up and down the stream. Ten of the San Leonardo's sailors were cremated .on the deck of the vessel, while 35 escaped by diving into the river and swimming beneath the blazing sur- face oil to the shore ; all were severely burned, however. Sweeping over the wharf, the fire attacked the walls of the free-port zone and destroyed a large section before the city fire department could swing into effective action. Fighting Alderman.
