CASUAL CROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 30 January 1929
CASUAL CROWING. ? w ? There is a prevailing notion amongst us that cock-crowing indi cates the breaking of the day. Old sayings and old rhythmes are, to some extent, responsible for this error. It may be quite coreect to say, 'This is the cock that crew in the morn.' But the same cock probably 'crew' more vociferously at mid night. Scriptural reference to this cock crowing conveys the same impression that the fowl's indulgence was essen tially an early-morning one. Shake speare, at a much later date, seems to have fallen into the same blunder. We find the ghost about to speak to Hamlet when the cock 'crew,' and he had to disappear. We find the same idea in 'Macbeth,' where they were carousing till the second cock crow. Evolution, in its progressive march, has accomplished much in accentuat ing the peculiarities of domestic fowls, but it savours somewhat of the speculative to say that it has exerted an influence on the crow of a cock. The fact remains that cocks crow at all hours dur...
TRY "CLEANIES." [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 30 January 1929
TRY 'GLEANIES.' ? ♦- ? Talk of watch-dogs ! You need never be afraid of losing your chick ens if you only keep a few guinea fowl with them. The guinea fowl, called 'gleany' i* the finest little sentinel that could be imagined. If a fox comes ia sight, or a ptrrngcr on two. legs, the racket the gleany raises is surprising, and can be heard half a mile away. Another good point about the gleany is that, served at table, it is a far finer bird than any chicken, and ? much nearer resembles game than poultry ; and a third is that the bird is a hardy and first-rate forager. They look after themselves in a won derful fashion, and cost hardly any thing to keep. * Nor do they damage crops like or dinary poultry, for they do not scratch in the same way. Some far mers keep a few guinea fowl in their potato fields, which the birds keep clear of injurious insects without do ing the least harm to the potatoes. Of course, they are not, such good layers as hens, but still,, they keep up a good suppl...
BEAUTY V. UGLINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 30 January 1929
BEAUTY V. UGLINESS. Good looks like the grapes in the fable, are sometimes said to be sour. ? The ugly sister will argue that, if she is loved, she will know she is loved for herself alone, and the hand some man is regarded as an unfor tunate mortal, subject to innumer able temptations and annoyances. Georges Carpentier was recently tackled on this question, and was asked to say frankly whether he found his good looks a handicap. 'Frankly, no,' he replied. 'One is never annoyed by nice women. There are many sorts of love, and every man must judge between them, but it is more necessary for the handsome man to possess good judgement than his less favoured brother.' Ugliness, too, has its temptations the temptations of an unsatisfied na ture, which, lacking what it normally requires to keep it sweet and whole some, flies to some excess for com pensation. Possibly the happiest people are those who are neither very good looking nor very ugly. Their path is certainly the smoothest, and th...

In view of the recent decision of the Commonwealth -Government to seek the services of the State Railway Commis sioners to revise the estimates of the cast of unifying railway, gauges, the Premier (Mr. Collier) consented yester day to express his views on the gauge question.

DRUNKEN MOTORISTS LICENSE SUSPENSION ADVOCATED. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 30 January 1929
DRUNKEN MOTORISTS LICENSE SUSPENSION ADVO CATED. 'The practice of fining drunken mo torists should be abandoned andjnore licenses suspended,'? declared the pre sident of the W.A. Automobile Club (Mr. L. R. Butt) when referring the other day to a statement made rec ently by Inspector Hunter, of the Traf fic Department, that there were more drunken drivers on the road than peo ple realised. 'The number of drunk en motorists could speedily be reduced by prompt action on the Fart or' the TraflSe Department,' added Mr. Butt. 'Every day motorists who have had a few drinks ean be seen driving away from hotels in the city and suburbs without giving a warning of any kind — apparently oblivions of the fact that other vehicles are using the road?»
