EXPLORERS' FATE DEATH FROM STARVATION. Two years ago a well known ex plorer named John Hornby, and two companions set out from Fort Resolu tion, on Great Slave Lake, across n -wide desolate region of northern Can ada towards Chesterfield Inlet on the north-western shore of Hudson Bay. Last December when the party failed to arrive at their destination soar.-li parties were ^ent out by the lioyal Canadian Mounted Police. Word luis recently come from the Police Post a1 Chesterfield Inlet that iu a lonely hut in the heart of the wilderness the bod ies of the unfortunate travellers have been found by a police patrol. Th--y had apparently died of starvation. Hornby had taken frequent trips of exploration into Canada's northern territories, and probably know iiiorj about those regions than any other white man. Adopting his report after one of hL: journeys, a vast tract, 1.1,000 squaro miles in extent to the nortii coast of Great Slave Lake, was created into a reserve for muskoxen by th-; C...

THE LONDON TIMES GREAT BRITISH INSTITUTION [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 5 January 1929
THE LONDON TMES GREAT BRITISH INSTITUTION The London f'Tinies'j reminded its readers with justifiable pride on Sep tember 17 that it had, with that issue, reached its forty-five thousandth ap pearance. In an editorial remarkable for modest understatement it observes that while a pedestrian, on attaining a milestone, may halt by the wayside a newspaper is .forbidden to do so. The halfway mark in the produc tion of the 'Times' between its first number and its recent rounded num ber was reached on October 16, 1856, and it etill has readers who . can re member the events of that far-off day. The forty thousandth issue was reach ed i6 years ago, in a pre-war yea*, which seems as far away to the pre sent generation as the last centurv. The 'Times,' in speaking of the changing eras it has witnessed, and without mentioning its own virile inde pendence, remarks: 'This time the an vil has been busy forging another pro duct in massed battalions and in a press in general never so dragooned and ...

DUDAWA FESTIVITIES A BUSH SHED GATHERING CBv a corresDondenO The 2mas tree to which the children of Dudawa were entertained on Dee ember 15, was a very pretty sight. The weather was very (dose, and there was every indication that at any moment a thunderstorm wtould upset the arrangements of the committee, but luckily it passed by. The hot wea ther created a trreat demand for cool drinks, ice creams, and supplies soon began to get low, these commodities being on the free list. The need of a suitable building for holding such a function was badly felt, the only structure available be* ing a bosh shed erected by a, busy bee, and re-conditioned each year. Dudawa has been' on the map for nearly a quarter of a century, and the bush shed remains its only public building. This is sometimes used as a church, and during the summer months pro vides a shady nook for the schoolchil dren. Dudawa can boast of being one of the first agricultural districts in the whole of Western Australia, and it c...

The Geraldton Guardian & Express SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1929. GERALDTON'S WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 5 January 1929
(SuarMsm & -£xprt$e SATUEDAY, JANUARY 5, 1929. GEEALDTONS WATER SUPPLY. In tho manifold signs and portents of progress and advancement for Ger ! aldton there is one which must give thoughtful .well- wishers of the ? town cause for thought and more than a little anxiety. .,. Geraldton 's future hinges largely upon its development as a port, from which will ultimately be shipped large quantities of wheat far exceeding last year's record of a million bags, and an unknown, but probably great, quantity of manganese ?ore. Not alone does the future devel opment and 'prosperity of Geraldton de pend upon expansion ' of this nature, but the destiny of the rich, districts behind the town is also vitally con corncd. It is obvious that the long haulage to Frcniantle. must militate to a great extent against the individual and collective prosperity of those who are farming locally and -it is equally ob vious that the port of Geraldton must expand in a manner commensurate with tho developme...
