What is Tapioca? [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923
i, What is Tapioca ? In "Naturia History," Mr. Charles W. Mead describes how the Indians of. Brazil manufacture the starchy, jelly-like globules . -called tapioca. The Indian woman he says, takes a large piece of bitter cassava root in both hands and rubs it back and forth on a board studded with hundreds of sharp pebbles until the root is reduced to a pulp When she has grated a sufficient quantity she presses as much water out of it as possible. For that purpose she uses as a . ^ press a long narrow tube of basket-work ! called a tipiti, with a loop at either end. She forces the pulp into the press, which she then hangs up by one of the loops. Through the lower loop she inserts a long, stout pole, which she runs'under some con- venient object, which serves as a fulcrum Then she sits on the,free end of the pole, and her weight stretches the press and forces the liquid through the insterstices of the basketwork. The liquid is caught in 'S- a pottery vessel, and is made into cassareep...
Children for Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923
Children for Australia. Mr. Lloyd George, afc the annual meet- ing of the Sunday School Union, in the City Temple, London, said that he had noticed that the union had selected 6,000 Sunday school pupils for emigration to Australia. He envied those children their future in that sunny continent.^ with its infinite re- sources. It was one any child might envy. Sunday schools were the universities of the people, continued Mr. Lloyd George. In Great Britain there were 7,000,000 teach- ers and scholars, and in the whole world, 30,000,000. He would rather trust the des- tiny of the people to a nation with 7,000. 000 of its children trained in Sunday schools, than to a nation which had not them. There was no better training for politicians than Sunday schools. In Wales there -was not an age limit for Sunday scholars. When he was last in Wales, he visited his old Sunday school, where the youngest member of the class was 45 years old, and the others were up to 80 years old.
The Breaking of the Drought. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 8 June 1923
The Breaking of the Drought. -. At about 6 o'clock on Saturday night last a few clouds .in the sky sent down a mist- like sprinkle of rain, and no one seemed to realise that this "Scotch Mist'' was the forerunner of splendid rains which can verily be looked upon as " the breaking of the drought." Late on Saturday night rain set in, in old-time style, but it was not until Sunday afternoon that the downpour assumed tropical character, when after a heavy wind had carried the clouds to the west, a storm worked up and the clouds returning, gave forth a torrential down-pour. The fall was general, and the result has been a changed outlook for all. Our Isis- ford correspondent writes in detail of the cyclonic disturbance experienced in that centre.

Cyclonic Disturbance. -: o : At Cleeve and Crossmore. While most were rejoicing and raising their ebonezovs for the beautiful and boun- teous rains which : visited our district on Sunday, the third, instant, it is our painful duty to chronicle that.this brought with it serious disaster to the property of Mrs., and Mr. William A. B\ilkeley Gavin at Cleeve. At three-thirty on the third instant a cyclone of a terriffic character visited this place which raised the homestead to the ground in a minute's time. Roof, walls, partitions, all went. As illustrating its character portion of the buildings can be seen thrce-quarte.rs of a mile over a circum- ference of ;a quarter of a mile. With one or two pieces exception, the whole of the contents including the furniture, was abso- lutely ruined. The appearance of the place ns it now -stands showing only the floors and a wall here and there is indes- cribable.
