Kruger's Hoard. —: o: — REPORTED DISCOVERY. VELDT TRAGEDY RECALLED. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 1 June 1923

Kruger's Hoard. -*-     REPORTED DISCOVERY. VELDT TRAGEDY RECALLED.   Kruger's gold hoard reported recently to   have been found, has revived memories of   the ex-president of the ex-Transvaal Re-   public. The hoard has been a source of   keen speculation by South Africans since   1902. Around it numerous myths have   sprung, and it has been the subject of many a hoax and practical joke. Kruger's hidden gold has probably been associated with as many confidence tricks as have the gold bricks of the rich uncle from Fiji. Perhaps the most serious stunt carried out with the aid of the Krugger gold theory was that which culminated with the murder of a rich Pretoria money-lender in 1906. Davies, the money-lender, left Pretoria in a buggy with a young Boer-a nephew of the late Oom Paul Kruger. Davies was afterwards found dead on the veldt with a couple of bullet wounds in h...

Helping Themselves. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923

Helping: Themselves. In the moat outside Wells Cathedral (England) there is an arrangement where- by the swans when hungry may ring a bell, and be supplied with food by the caretaker at the Bishop's palace. An inventor in Kansas, some time ago, hit upon the in- genious scheme of making cattle do their own pumping when they wished a drink of water. The path that leads up to the watering-trough terminates in a tread-mill, vhich is connected by suitable gearing1 to th 2 pump. As the treadmill offers the only means of access to the trough, the animal is obliged to operate the pump while it is taking a drink. One of the advantages of j this system is that each animal is assured j of having fresh water to drink. A valve I is provided which discharges the water j automatically when the animal leaves the j treadmill.
