Glennon is reported to have made a good find adoining the King of the Eange lease at Parker's Eange, and hi8 and Mrs. Harford, of Marvel Loch, have taken up a prospecting area over the ground. Mr. S. Goczel, who reported very optimistically on the leases known as Chteriton's Golden Mile, and. situated 20 miks to the south of Parker 's Eange, last week applied for three of the leases. He has great faith in them still, and though he thinks that they require big capital, he is hopeful of opening them up sufficiently to induce the necessary money into them.

Great Fighting Machine. BIGGEST WARSHIP LAUNCHED IN ENGLAND. FIFTY-TON BROADSIDE. GREAT BRITAIN'S LEAD IN SHIPBUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 12 April 1913
Great Fighting Machine. BIGGEST WARSHIP LAUNCHED IN ENGLAND. FIFTY-TON BROADSIDE. GREAT BRITAIN'S LEAD 'N SHIPBUILDING. The Brazilian battleship Rio de Janeiro, the largest war vessel ever &nbsp; built in this country, was launched at the Elswick Yard at Newcastle re- cently. &nbsp; It is a curious coincidence that from the same yard years ago was also launched the smallest craft ever built there, and that was likewise for the Brazilian Government. ? \The Rio de Janeiro is a vessel of the Dreadnought type, and a broadside fire means over fifty tons of metal being hurled at an enemy. British shipyards still build for the world. Last year's activity has never been equalled. There are now 18 ships in the United Kingdom for various countries. Hail of Metal. Thousands of spectators assembled in and around the Armstrong- Whit- worth yard to witness the launch of the latest addition to the Brazilian navy. The naming ceremony was per- formed by Mme. Huet de Bacellar, wife of...
THE WILY AFGHAN. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 12 April 1913
THE WILY AFGHAN. The Department of External Affairs has received, through the Secretary of State for the Colonies, advice from the Government of India to the effect that it has come to their notice that it is no uncommon practice for Afghans and Transborder Pathans, who visit the Commonwealth for purposes of trade or camel-driving, to marry European women while here. These marriages are contracted by the husbands merely as a business transaction, and are,as &nbsp; a rule, fraught with eventual misery for the wives. These Afghans and Pathans deceive the women with lying stories of the magnificence and com- forts of their homes, of their status in their own country, and of the future life of their wives there. In this way women are induced to marry and ac- company them back across the North Western frontier of India, where they are promptly sold to the highest bidder. The miserable woman is there- after doomed to a life of close im- prisonment under most barbarous con- ditions...
WHY DID CAPTAIN SCOTT FAIL? Amundsen's Striking Predictions. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 12 April 1913
WHY DID CAPTAIN SCOTT FAIL? Amundsen's Striking Predictions. At the very moment Captain Amund- sen was telling for the first time in public the story of how he reached the South Pole, Captain Scott was gasp- ing out his last breath in his frozen tent that was to be his tomb. From this point Mr. Carlyle Smyth begins a new and most interesting contribu- tion, to the literature of the Polar tragedy in the April issue of "Life" just to hand. Mr. Smythe's article is in part an interview with Captain Amundsen, and he shows that, long before any news of the death of Scott and his companions reached the public, Amundsen predicted the tragedy. So certain was he that Scott would never return that he altered certain arrange- ments in his lecturing tour. The rea- sons for his forecast are here all set out with clearness and detail, and the effect of the article is to heighten the reader's admiration for the man who found the South Pole without in any way lessening his respect for the heroes who...
VANISHED INTO SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 12 April 1913
VANISHED INTO SPACE, A sturdy tramp one day went into a suburban garden, where the lady of the house was engaged in attending to the flowers. He took no notice of her refusal to give coppers, but continued his importunity until a bull dog ap- peared, growling ominously. The lady seized it by the collar and held it, calling out: &nbsp; '"You had better go away at once; he may bite you. " "You ain't got no right to keep a savage dorg like that," replied the &nbsp; tramp in outraged tones. "Perhaps I have not, " was the cool &nbsp; &nbsp; answer. "If you think so, I won't keep him-— I'll let him go." The latch of the gate clicked vio- &nbsp; lently, and in twenty seconds that tramp had vanished into space. To remove the smell of fish from forks wash the forks in hot water, then remove from the water and rub over with a tiny piece of butter. Wash again and all smell will disappear. A country paper, recording the fune- &nbsp; ral of a promi...

The Coolgardie Miner Published Weekly SATURDAY, APRIL 12, 1913 THE CADET SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 12 April 1913
The Coolgardie Miner Published Weekly SATURDAY, APRIL 12, 1913 &nbsp; THE CADET SYSTEM. Sufficient time has now elapsed since the initiation of the cadet train- ing system to afford us an opportunity of judging its value. As Captain Jackson recently remarked in Cool- gardie, the strength of an army is not in its numbers (although that means something), but in the patriotism of its units, and that esprit de corps that has so long been a pleasing character- istic of the British forces. But you must bend that twig to train the tree, and thus Australia is acting wisely in making a special feature of its cadet system — a system that is not rivalled in any part of the world. It may be conceded that Australia is in no immediate danger, but the future belongs to the young, and those who &nbsp; are to come after them, and the duty of those to whom the present belongs is to see that provision is made to meet the needs of any set of circum- stances that may arise, even after th...
ITEMS OF INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 12 April 1913
ITEMS OF INTEREST King's Pictures — On Tuesday and Thursday evenings next there will be shown the usual programmes of pic- tures. On Tuesday there is an excep- tional drama by the Thanhouser Coy entitled "The Race" Bogie Trucks Derailed.— Shortly after 9 o'clock on Thursday morning a goods and water train was des- patched from the Coolgardie station for Norseman, but just after passing junder the Hunt-street bridge two &nbsp; bogie trucks jumped the points and &nbsp; got off the rails, completely blocking &nbsp; traffic. The stationmaster, Mr Brown, soon had a gang of trackmen at work, and the truck that chiefly interfered with traffic was got on the rails again by half-past 12. The train trom Kal- goorlie was then able to come in, only 18 minutes after the usual time. Very little damage was done to the tracks and none to the rolling stock. The accident is supposed to have been due to the shifting of the wrong points in error, and this is being in quired into...
Cricket. Coolgardie v. Kalgoorlie Footballers. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 12 April 1913
Cricket. Coolgardie v. Kalgoorlie Footballers. A return match between these teams was played at the Half-way ground, between Kalgoorlie and Boulder, on Sunday last, and resulted in a win for Coolgardie by 4 runs. The visitors won the toss and sent the Footballers to the wickets. They made 180, toward which Ingle con- tributed 33, Chidlow 26, and Eddy (not out) 19. The visitors were then entertained at dinner by the Footballers at &nbsp; the Half-way Hotel, Coolgardie, strengthened with meat and drink, then went to the wickets and hit up 134, of which Lonsdale, one time of Burbanks, made 41, Kritchmar 14, Lancaster 18, and Bruton 11. In their second innings, the Foot- ballers retired alter making 80 for the loss of four- wickets, and then Coolgardie lost three wickets for 47 before stumps were drawn. The &nbsp; visitors thus won on the first innings by 4 runs. In the Footballer's' first innings, Pope secured four wickets for 17, Larcombe three for 41, and Lan- caster ...
MINING. NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 12 April 1913
MINING. NEWS AND NOTES. &nbsp; As was expected, the sands from Charlie Mitchell's parcel of 10 tons from the Indicator, which gave 120 &nbsp; ozs. 3dwts. at the State battery, proved &nbsp; very rich. The owner 's sample went &nbsp; 2ozs. 4dwts., but the battery sample &nbsp; nearly 2dwts. higher. An umpire's &nbsp; sample was then sent to Perth, but the &nbsp; Government assayer's report is not yet &nbsp; to hand. Owing to the rich return ob- &nbsp; tained, Mitchell has applied for a gold &nbsp; &nbsp; mining lease. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Messrs. Marretts' parcel of 107½ &nbsp; tons from the Cheapside was cleaned &nbsp; up at the State battery on Sunday last, &nbsp; and gave 58ozs. 15dwts., an average of 10dwts. 23 grains per ton.

TINDAL'S MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 12 April 1913
TINDAL'S MINE. Some confusion has arisen in the minds of the public as to the position of attorney at Tindal's. Up to the &nbsp; present, there is only one attorney re &nbsp; gistered (Mr. A. Mercer), but Mr. Tin- dal holds a document that may be re- gistered should certain circumstances &nbsp; arise, but it is not anticipated that this will occur. Mr. Faull, however, is in charge of all mining operations, whilst Mr. Mercer may be looked upon as the company 's financial representa- tive and adviser. As general man- ager, Mr. Paull is now at work, and has appointed Mr. Humphries as un- derground manager. The first work will be the equipment of the Persever- ance shaft, for which purpose a boiler and winch have been procured. There is a good deal of water to be pumped, and then the shaft will have to be at- tended to, as the last tributers did &nbsp; some underhand stoping. All the Tin- &nbsp; dal's shoots made north, and as there is pay ore in ...
