CAR MYSTERY DETECTIVES' DIFFICULT TASK SEARCH FOR INJURED MAN A VAGRANT'S STORY Melbourne, January 31. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 1 February 1929
CAR MYSTERY DETECTIVES' DIFFICULT TASK SEARCH FOR INJURED MAN A VAGRANT'S STORY Melbourne, January 31. New facts in support of the murder theory have been established by the police, who are endeavouring to eluci- date the mystery of the disappearance of Leslie Williams, electrical engineer, of Goulburn, whose blood-stained car was found abandoned on the road at Donnybrook on Sunday morning. Detective Milne, who is working with Senior Detective Madin and Detective Lee, is tracing a man, who last Sunday morning called at the farm house of W Schultz, of Sydney-road, Donnybrook, and asked for water to wash a blood stained singlet he was wearing. The police to-day arrested Joseph Vis- coe in a house at Murton, on a charge of vagrancy. They are hoping he will &nbsp; be able to throw some light on the mys- tery. Viseoe is 33 years of age, and a native of Ncw Zealand. He was in the Murton district some 18 months ago, when he was known as "New Zealand Joe." His head is very much la...
LONDON NIGHT CLUBS THE BRIBERY MONEY ACTIONS FOR RECOVERY London, January 30. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 1 February 1929
LONDON NIGHT CLUBS ? — ? THE BRIBERY MONEY ACTIONS FOK RECOVERY London, January 30. Big legal actions are expected to be f ought over the £12,000 which ex-Poliee Sergeant Goddard secreted in a West End safe deposit. It was only through the detectives' astuteness in recognising Gflddard?a handwriting in an assumed name in the depository's register that his hoard was discovered. Mrs. Goddard is ex pecteu to enueavour to recover a. yan of the money, which she alleges belongs to her, and Silberman, the music puo lisher, is also taking action for the re covery of the £2,500 which Goddard stated in evidence he had kept for him. Thirdly the income tax authorities will doubtless sue for their share of God dard's self-confessed trading profit*. While; Goddard 's own aetion will dc pend, according to the 'Daily Mail,' upon the rosult of the foregoing, he will have to pay at least £4,000 in fine and costs for the present case.

WUlcock and Mr. J. M. Drew, the ever-growing proportions of the emu menace. ' The deputation, introduced by Mr. M. 3. Kennedy, M.L.A., was unanimous in the opinion that .the suppression of emus is a jtatioaal matter, and that a substantial bonus should be paid un der the' Vermin Act, for their destruc tion. * . It was pointed out that the matter was State-wide, inasmuch that the birds are flocking down from the north in increasing numbers, and only de termined efforts will prevent them spreading over the State. Already they'~Bave penetrated beyond the rab bit proof ienee into the closely set tled areas. .; It was added that the birds had come to like wheat, and were now breeding1 extensively in the wheit growing areas....
FIRST THIMBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 1 February 1929
FIRST THIMBLE. « ? ? » How many women are familiar with ihc. origin of the thimble? As a matter of fact, it dates back to the year 1684*. In that year Nicho las Benschoten, an Amsterdam . gold smith, sent a thimble as ft gift to -a. ?lady with the dedication : 'To My froj van Rensclaer, this little object nhuh I bave invented and executed as a. protective covering for her in dustrious fingers.' 1 1 first thimbles were costly, so that ot)ly welUxHio women could af ford them, but they became much chcaer on being made of lead and other common metals. The word thimble points to the fact that originally this protection was r orn on the thumb to parry the thrust of the needle, and not, as at present, to help to push it through the material. The Dutch term finger bat or fing-er-hood became in 3&kgland tfce 'thumb-bell' from its bell-like s'.:c c Kvtntnaliy the word was change 1 to thimble.
TRAPPING TIGERS WITH BIRDLIME. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 1 February 1929
TRAPPING TIGERS WITH BIRDLIME. The i-'ea that a hunter could trap v iid aniTaals with no other aid than lira -lime seems ridiculous, yet this is the favour i ?'. method adopted by nai.es ,,i Sumatra, in tbe Bast Indies. The bird-lime is made from the gum of trees. In catching tigers or elephants the hunter spreads the lime 4'h.ere the animals will pass, and covers it with leaves. When a 'cat' animal puts his foot in the gum he does not attempt to run away, but tries to bite tbe stuff fiora \i~ feet, and then gets it on i is face. As he tries to rub it off he plasters it over his eyes, and when he is thoroughly covered with it he is bo helpless that l.e can be caged with out much trouble. He spends weeks of his captivity in trying to remove tbe lime from, bis fur. Monkeys are captured in bird-lime smeared on the limbs of trees, but another way of catching small speci mens is by means of a sweetened rag in a bottle. The bottle is covered with* green rattan and tied to a tree. The mon ...
ROUGH ON ROBBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 1 February 1929
ROUGH ON ROBBERS. 3n these days, when hold-ups and .Jav igv t robberies are so frequent, d any in.-ento'rs have turned their at tention lo safety devices for the ban ker and the shopkeeper who are sud- , denly tell by armed desperadoes t-» 1 put up ihtir hcndB. One of the most effective takes the form of a small pedal situated be math tbe counter. Even though the threat-ned man's bands are above bis bead, his feet are free and unob errcd. if he can place one of them on the pedal a loud electric bell peals outside the premises, and at the same time an illuminated sign roLlCP, flashes out for all to see. Another idea consists of a waist c-at in which a revolver is carried in- a special pocket onder the right arm. Tt is placed in such a manner t&p.t v hen the wearer faces a man tie re-:oK~cr is aimed directly at the middle of his body. The act ot rais ing tfce hands tightens a cord, which pulls tbe trigger and fires the revol ver.
