One of our most . famons poets has supplied us. with those splendid words. and it is with much pleasure and de light that I commence an essay on 'our page' in.'The Daily Mail' an«l 'The. Sunday.

JUNIOR, — FX&ST PRIZE. SUGAR INDUSTRY AND WHITE AUSTRALIA The first attempts at growing sugar in Australia were made on the Hawkes bury, but it was not- success? ully grown till' it was tried on the Northern Bivers of New South 'Wales, and. the coastal rivers of ? Queensland. Sugar growers did well in the €fsix ties,' while the American Civil War was on, but thev lost their profits when they had to compete with American sugar, grown by low-paid negroes. To get cheaper labour they first tried coolies from India and China. Then, in 1864, Louis Hope imported 'Pacific Islanders- or Kanakas ' for one of hie plantations. (Towns -had used them in 1863 for cotton cultivation.) They worked well and' cost very little, being content -with food, lodg ings, and ' clothes. This success .led to a regular trade in Kanakas. The natives, were supposed to . come of their jown free Will to work in Queensland plantations for two or three years; but soon they were -tricked on board ship, even kid...

Or, rather, did you ever have the experience of feeling lost — absolutely 'bushed' — in such cir cumstances? We had followed a well-defined 'snig- ging trail' — down which had come tho6e hefty strainers and some hundreds of split posts during the winter — into the heart, of the forest, at one time thicker by all those trees that had entered into man's immediate service, and had taken note of several asides that had been cut to allow of the inclusion of certain straight, stout-tranked stringies in the poet-getter's scheme. In passing we had questjoned as to the number of lengths each tree had cut, the posts in each length, difficulty of splitting and snig ging, and other matters that are of moment when the interest ia a personal one.

A MUSICAL AND ITS REPERTORY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 14 November 1926

A MUS'CAL AND ITS REPERTORY In one of the towers of the Krem lin in Moscow is a musical clock with a curious history. It was made by one Pcti?r Antonius Solarius. of Milan, in the yc-ir 1491, when it probably played Milanese airs. In 3C2S it's musical mechanism was altered by a native of the Low Countries — C'Jarhis Fremus — to play the folk fongs of nis own co.unrry. I'erer tno It real then became possessed of the clock for Russia, when it still played Nether lands 'Volkslieder. ' In the 18th cen tury a German altered this state of affairs, and the clock was made to play a well-known German 'air. !n the reign of the Czar Nicholas I. it was changed to that- of a Russian mili tary march, though Alexander IT. pre ferred something more hymn-like and spiritual. During the Revolution the clock was silenced. Only recently has it been put in order again, to ploy the popular air of the Soviet Government.
