MINHING IN WEST Prospects Reported Bright M-r. W. BIestwick stated in Adelaide yesterday morning that the old gold mining fields outside Laverton, Western Australia, are again operating. "I think," he saii, "that they justify a lot of further prespecting. The lease known as the King of Creation mine, which I saw a few,v weeks ago, has two shafts down to 1t, ft. Between num ber one and two shafts there is a dis tance of 300 ft. lHoughly, about S0 ft. has been driven toward No. 2 shaft, leaving a distance of 220 ft. to connect them. There are big quartz deposits running north and south, and from what I could see, they are not dislo cated by any serious faulting of the de posits. "In the face from No. 1 shaft, going south, are two samples in the open por tion of the face, near the back of the drive. I received 13 dwt. assays. In the lower portion of the face assays were up to an ounce. "Therefore I. came to the conclusion that these extremely large deposits are well worth . further inv...
UNBEATEN FILLY Owners Will Not Compete LONDON, August 3. [Newspaper Article] — News — 4 August 1923
UNBEATEN FILLY Owners Will Not Compete (REUTER'S.) LO)NDON, August 3. Mumtaz Mahal is a veritable bogey, the fiUy scaring owners out of races. Numerous entries were received for the Molecamb Stakes at Goodwood but Karoo, ridden by Bullock, the Austra lian jockey, was the only opponent. Until the names of the starters ap peared there was no betting. The filly started at 40 to 1 on and won by 10 lengths, pulling up. The distance was six furlongs, whereas previously Mumtaz LMahal had only been tested over five furlongs. The problem of whether the unbeaten filly is able to stay is still unsolved. When an eager crowd was pressing to see Mumtaz Mahal in the paddock the filly kicked and broke a spectator's arm.

'"We had a wonderful trip through the Far East," she said. "The theatres and customs there are quaint. In Calcutta we saw a Hilndoo company stage a play, and the next night they gave 'The Sil ver King.'

MAJESTIC THEATRE Good Music and Humor [Newspaper Article] — News — 6 August 1923
MAJESTIC THEATRE Good Music and Humor This week's entertainment at the Ma jestic is one of the most humorous that has been seen for some time. Something new in vaudeville is the act of Ernest Krake & Co. Their sketch, "The Electric Tramcar Conductor," is a whirlwind of clever, funny situations. Acrobatics play no small part in the work of the trio, but the whole of their movements are so casual and droll that they keep the audience in roars of laughter. Their backfiring tramcar is an important part of the act. Hand-to-hand balancing is the spe ciality of the Two Mleurs. They are well proportioned, and they execute the most daring feats. IAttle Lorna, billed as Australia's wonder child, is a giLtea girl in the realm of imitation, and she is also an accomplished elocutionist. Sam Stern was "the bos'n." Although on the sea hlie was a dry humorist. in his patter he received able assistance from Ida Newton. TWith the inimitable Joe Brennan Miss Newton put on an excelent turn. In ...
