RAIN? [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

RAIN?   " Wet weather : Men not to cease work without ganger's instructions.'--Indus trial Award. One navvy of my acquaintance says: "This rule is necessary, because the ave rage toiler can't tell if it's raining unless   he is under a roof. When he hears the rain falling on the iron he knows it's wet." Another chap one damp day was mak ing for the shelter shed when the ganger, clad in oilskins and leggings, said: "What are you going into the shed for? It's only a Scotch mist." "Yes," he replied ; "and it would wet a ------- Australian, too." It is also stated that the building of Stromlo is a mistake, as some of the nav vy gangers claim to be first-class astrono mers. If it is raining in the afternoon men have been told not to turn out, "as it will be wet to-morrow," thus losing a half day's pay. More often than not these clerks of the weather are wrong, so Dr. Duffield need have no fear that he will be replaced by Ganger Raingauge.   EVENING-...

A WORD WITH Mr. AINSLIE [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

A WORD WITH Mr. AINSLIE By J. H. M. ABBOTT In the year 1828, on a .sum mer forenoon, Mr. William O'Brien Brady landed in Syd ney Cove, not for the first time, with a heartful of dis content, arid a little negro head tobacco, as his only as sets. lt was one of those days when Sydney Harbor looked its best under a clear blue sky-when no man, however familiar with it, who sails upon its bosom, can re frain from thanking God that such beauty and love liness should be permitted to exist in a world that is often so drab and ugly as to be almost unen durable. Yet young Bill Brady, standing in the waist of the Government brig, found little to admire in Port Jacksoî,1,» as the General Brisbane, from Norfolk Island, rounded Bradley's Head in front of a gentle nor'-easter, and glided up pastille pretty islet of Mattewai-named Pinch gut, by thc convicts, for good and suffi cient reasons-towards thc capital of the South Seas, whose roofs and wal's gleamed in the sunlight over the low crest of th...

TWO BOOKS ON CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

TWO BOOKS ON CANBERRA By' R. C. J. TIMEKEEPER CADDEN Of the Federal Capital area much has been written, but unfortunately in the form of Government reports, articles in the Australian Year books and in pamp lets of a more or less official type. White these, to the seeker after information, are interesting, io the man in the streot they savour much of the statistician. But a book that comes as a welcome change is Mr. W. Davis Wright's "Can berra." Mr. Wright is one who knows his country intimately and he tells of his experiences in a manner that is easy and refreshing. In every way it is a book to enjoy. Herc we meet the old pioneers, Robt. Campbell, John Palmer "famed for being a wonderful step dancer;" Mr. Davis, whose rifle Ben Hall, the bushranger, stole ; Mr. Henry Hall, who "imported the best Arab that ever came to New South Wales, Abdule, who had come with a great reputation from his own deser/t folk. He had thirteen firescars along his belly, showing the races he had won be f...

CANBERRA'S WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

CANBERRA'S WATER SUPPLY. Water Supply. "According to Dr. De Burgh's report of 1908, the Cotter, a tributary of the Murrumbidgee, possesses a catchment area of 17Ü square miles, quite uninhabited, snow-fed in winter, and at al! times permanent, even in the severest drought. Thin area supplies an average of 80,000,000 gallons per day, but it would have to be pumped to any site likely to be chosen. By building a dam, however, eleven miks up the valley, an average daily Mow of 59,000,000 gallons can bc secured at an elevation which would permit of a supply by gravitation to the Canberra portion jf the district. At a point about a mils up the gorge from thc junction of thc Cotter and the Murrumbidgee the waters of the former river have been impounded at a level of 1,560 ft. The pipe line from this weir penetrates the hill and after crossing the Murrumbidgee leads to a hill near Strom lo (2375 ft.). There i;; a service reser voir at Ked Hill (2300 ft.). A power station has been erected at...

The Fauna and Flora of Canberra [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

Tñe Fauna and Flora of Canberra By ROBERT KALESKI. FISHING, MOLONGO RIVER Pho'lo F. IL Unland The fauna and flora of the Federal Territory, following the law which de crees that the vegetation shall vary with the soil from which it feeds, and that the fauna, otherwise birds and animal.«, shall vary with their food the vegetation (the proportion of mineral salts and nit rogen in the soi], together with ihc tem perature, deciding the species of the ani mals and plant« living on it) vary con siderably in its various parts. To ac count for this difference, therefore, wc must take into account the different for mations of altitude of Canberra, with the varying températures of the latter, which we call Climate. If wc look at the geological map of Canberra (as set out by the Government geologist, Mr. Pittman,) we lind that the formation, or-the rocks which "weather" or crumble into soil, consist of Upper Silurian sandstones, quartzite, shales, tuffs, clay slates, and patches of lime stone;...

The Plan of the Federal Capital. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

The Plan of the Federal Capital. By ah "ARCHITECT" Irr thc building oí a city "ab initio" the main point of consideration is the site. A site cannot be made, but when it has been decided upon it i.s the genius of the highly skilled architect alone that can use the main features of land contours in such a manner as to secure the maximum of aesthetic and utilitarian effect, which is the desideratum to be achieved. It has been found in-practice that these ob jectives do not conflict. In examining the design of Canberra it is found that ? .the principles followed conform to those so ably advocated by our own distin guished Australian town-planner, John Sulman F.ÎÎ.I.B.A.. of Sydney University. Canberra is to be constructed in the main on the spider's-web plan. Insead of thc in artistic chessboard system such as exists in Melbourne, or the straggling aimless style on which old Sydney and so many other cities have grown, here we shall have a scries of groups of buildings in CHIEF COMMISSI...

Canberra's Health. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

Canberra's Health. (ByR.C.J.) In December, 1912, Dr. Norris, Direc tor of Quarantine, says of the medical and related need3 of the Federal Capi tal Territory: "While medical service for the sick may be very important and may . even appear to be of primary importance, a little consideration will, I think, show that organisation for the prevention and removal of environmental and other con ditions favorable to the occurrence and spread of disease are even more impor tant." With this view I think all will concur; and in a city whose height is about 2,000 ft. (in fact, the second highest capital in the world), and a city thal has the ad vantage of the pure atmosphere of that height, the duties of health officers ought to be easy. With a mean summer temperature of 68.4, and a mean winter temperature of 44.2, there is no need to vonder why our death rates are the lowes£*in the world, and the infant mortality is in the por tion the following figures for 1923 show: Number of deaths per 1000...

DUNTROON [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Illustrated: A Quarterly Magazine — 1 November 1925

DUNTROON By "WHIZZBANG" ADJUTANT PRISK Across the Molonglo River approxim-   ately mid-east from, and immediately outside the city district is the Royal Mil-   itary College of Duntroon. When in 1910 Lord Kitchener visited Australia he drew up a memorandum for the Common- wealth Government bearing on the com- pulsory training scheme which was to be introduced in the succeeding year. Chief among his recommendations was the establishment of such a college and with a view to putting this into effect Major-General Sir Wm. Throsby Bridges was commissioned to go abroad and study various miliatry colleges in other parts of the world. The result of his in- vestigations lead to the purchase of Dun- troon, which for the greater part of a century had been the home of the well- known family of Campbells. The suit- ability of the position for such an institu- tion cannot be disputed and on this point Sir Inn Hamilton remairked in 1914, "Your College is better sited than...
