MEDICAL JOURNAL'S REVIEW London, January 4. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 5 January 1929
MEDICAL JOURNAL'S REVIEW London. January 4. The 'Lancet' says:r— 'The New Year brings bat little les sening of the concern with which the King's illness is watched in this coun try and elsewhere. The path to 'con- valescence has proved steep and diffi cult, almo-t too steep, indeed, for a man exhausted by so .'ma ay a seks- in fections. Its dangers have been only too apparent, and that many of them have still to be tarmouiited is clear from the cautious bulletins. - . 'The note of ?encouragement with which the official statement ends will do much to renew hope, which, at times has fallen very low. On the contrary, the obstacles to His --Majesty's recov ery are frankly set out. No medical reader will gain an ... impression that their removal ii purely a matter or time alone, though .there is increasing reason to think that ftfeb preservation of the King's Ljfe in these many weeks will not have been in vain. More defin ite and more settled- 'improvement is needed before confidence' «a...

BUSH FIRES OUTBREAKS IN N,S.W. HEAVY. DAMAGE CAUSED VERY HIGH TEMPERATURES Srdncy, January 5. Heat and strong winds yesterday made conditions very trying. Many bush fires were reported, and in the middle of the afternoon smoke, high in the sky over Sydney, screened the sun and gave it a dull' appearance, as if it were viewed ihromrh smoked' crlass. In the evening the wind increased in velocity, and conditions wore boister ous. A report from West Maitland says that bush fires arc raging in the vic inity of Glen Ayr Colliery. When the fire brigade arrived, the mine was prac tically surrounded by fires, but the mine was saved. In the Albury district severe heat and winds are causing landowners an xiety. Sonic, who were absent on holi days, have returned to watch their pro perties. The rectory of St. Paul's (Church of England), at Emu Plains, near Penrith, was destroyed by a bush fire, which swept many acres of grass country.

MODERN POETRY HOW TO ENJOY IT. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 5 January 1929
MODERN POETRY ? HOW TO ENJOY.IT. . In the first plice (says a writer in the 'Christian Science Monitor') mo dern poetry is not essentially different from the poetry of the past. Certain of the Elizabethans — John panne 'for example, achieved- startlingly 'mod- ern' effects, so that people who are en thusiastic over ,po-viy to-day are per fectly able to en'oy the best poeiiy oi. the sixteenth century, and to find in it the same qualities of subtlety of thought, sophistication of expressipn, music and- rhythm -as in the best that is written to-day. Keats and his con temporaries were often thoroughly 'modern ' in their results, and a ? few poets in the last century managed to remain simple, ~ forceful and crafts manlike in the midst of an overadora ed and artificial age. The, poets of to-day 'have been taught to stress these fdrcerul quali ties. Some of them, educated in the Longfellow : Tennyson - Bryant , tradi tion, had to learn the lesson by bitter experience. 'they discovered1 tna...

THE STATE'S PROSPERITY ENGLISHMAN'S GLOWING TEEBUTE Perth. Januarv 5. Speaking of his impressions of West ern Australia, Major G. Moore, who represents an English steel firm, and is spending a fortnight in Perth before joining a mailboat for London, said yesterday that, of all the Australian cities, he considered that Perth would mate the most rapid progress. A stranger who saw the most magni ficent post office built by the Common wealth in Forrest-place could not, he said, help realising what the future held out when the Federal authorities had such faith in the soundness of Western Australia. The State Gov ernment incurred no loss on the running of its vast transport system. Com mercial houses reported excellent busi ness over a period of manyiyears, and palatial kinemas and other places of amusement had been provided. West ern Australia had laid : the foundation of the most efficient air service in Aus tralia, and, generally speaking, the fu ture of the State -sould- not bnt trml...

INSUFFICIENT ADDRESS WOES OF LETTER SORTERS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 5 January 1929
INSUFFICIENT ADDRESS ? '♦ WOES OF LETTER SORTERS If a letter which had been sent to us goes astray we are annoyed and wonder why; but if we saw the millions of let ters being sorted at the G.P.O. in any city we would wonder that we receive the letter at all. People who complain bitterly on the comparatively rare occasions when their letters go astray may obtain consolat ion in the knowledge that in a year the Postmaster-General 's Department in Australia handles approximately 40,000 unaddressed letters and nearly 4,000,000 incorrectly or inadequately addressed letters. * It is remarkable how these letters eventually find their owners, and it is only by persistently marking them with tenative addresses that they are dispos ed of. In each G.P.O. a large staff or men are kept busy handling mails which gravitate to the dead letter office. The rcrth branch is similarly afflicted. During1 the Christmas rush a letter from the Eastern States was addressed to a certain party at 'Winnipeg, W....

THE GENERAL'S COMMENT 'THIS IS RATHER ROUGH ON ME.' Tendon. Januarv 3. The Salvation Army states officially that General Booth has been informed of the High Council meeting, as the doctors expressed the opinion that he ?was strong enough to be told. TTis wife and daughter Catherine broke the news to. the General, who im mediately realised its import, saying: 'Whatever the people think about the Army's government, they must fee! this is rather rough on me. I have loved the Army and done my best.' The news came as a shock to the General, who passed a restless day, but Ms condition continues hopeful. It is unofficially stated that Catherine Booth later telephoned to her aunt, Commander Evangeline Booth, head *-f the American Army, saying she would like to meet her. They had a long conversation, which, it is hoped will es tablish cordial relations between thn two opposing wings before the meeting of the High Council on January 8.
