BOYS A-BIKE MOUNTAINEERING FEATS MIDNIGHT RIDE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
BOYS A-BIKE MOUNTAINEERING FEATS MIDNIGHT RIDE (BY J.B.W.- My bfother,— familiarly known as 'Cheops' — agreed with me that during the week-end we should ride on oui push-bikes to Glass House Mountain, climb it, then ride baek again, a dis tance of 61 miles each way. On Satur day morning we consigned parcels of cooking materials, and extra clothes, to Beerburriim by rail. At about 12.30 p.m. we changed into shorte, shirts, and sand shoes, and set off from Brisbane. At Petrie, 16 miles out, far dinner me made a meal of thick date sand wiches under some bushes in the drizz ling rain. Later, we passed an orange orchard where we were somewhat de layed. The Doctor had said we must take oranges for health, though it would not have been healthy for us had the farmer arrived with a double barrelled shot guru Anon, we came to a most shocking piece of so-called road. The hilly parts were seamed and crossed with deep ruts and wash-outs, while the fiats were beds of heavy clogging sand. We pushe...
SENIOR—FIRST PRIZE. NATURAL BEAUTIES OF GYMPIE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
SENIOR— FIRST PRIZE. NATURAL BEAUTIES OF GYMPIE Ofympie lies in the basin of the Mary Eiver. and almost surrounding the town and district is a range of low hills, called mountains' here, which Rive a curiously sheltered Jook to the town. A«d. oh! in the morning, vrheu the sun rises! It* lights up the hillsides with its bright rays, bringing out the fresh green tints on the near slopes, and throwing into deep mystic blue and purple shadows the valleys and gullies between. The mist above tiie aonows ana watercourses rolls slowly away before the majesty of the sun, and as it lightly climbs and clings to the hillsides, it seems like a laev veil drawn over the fresh young face of the morning. On the hills the ploughed fields seem like neat patches on the green dress of the earth, while on the slopes of the hills, the bright green of the crops contrasts strangely with the more sombre tints of the scrub trees. On a winter's morn ing, when the ground is white with frost, and the grass fairl...
JUNIOR—FIRST PRIZE. SPORTS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
JUNIOR— FIRST PRIZE. SPORTS Sport is a subject to which much more attention is paid in schools of modern times than in days of yore. The result is a child world of better phy sique, a brighter outlook — on their parts — on school life, and a spirit of cama raderie between schools of the same stan dard. The spirit ./hie' rules is not for the win, but that 0. playing the game. It is much better to win, of course, but the spirit of true rportsmanship is evidenced when a team loses well. I quote from a speech recently made by our prince: 'In school games your pupils will learn the invaluable lessons of comradeship and co-operation, of playing and working fo' the toam rather thn-i f'r themselves alone.' The usual routine of school life is broken by interest in games. That a e--'-,ool be successful in sports of any description indicates untiring effort, and steady training on the p irts of the coach and the team, respectively. Even if a team lose, the example of fighting to the death make...

TESTIMONY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
TESTIMONY James Box of Punktown disappeared and left no clue behind him: the tragedy was strange and weird, in vain we tried to find him. The mayor Announced in ringing tones a purse for any seeker who would return his hide or bones, but hope grew daily weaker. Reports' came in from other towns that cheered and braced us greatly, for all the Smiths and Greens and Browns had talked with Jamei finite latelv. Said Smith of Mudville: 'I saw James a week ago to-morrow, and he was at his ancient games — some coin he tried to borrow. I've known him well for thirty years, I cannot be mi« taken; I know him by his pointed ears, his appetite for bacon.' Said Green of Heckbnrg: 'Jamei was here, I saw him Thursday morn Ing; he'll be returning, never fear, your Punktown haunts adorning. I've knows him since I. was a child, he's tall and double-jointed, he looks as though him teeth were filed, for they are long and pointed.

OTHER DAYS, OTHER WAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
OTHER DATS, OTHER WATS. What has become of tfie early Vic torian fainting-fit? Did our grand- j mothers really faint, or was it only a J well-worked means of attraction for j the other sex! The fainting-fit, or feinting-fit, seems to have succeeded 'the spleen' and the ' vapours, 'i which can hardly have been very en- j gaging. But fits of screaming seem to j have attracted not only tbe attention j but the compassion of our gallant j ancestors, who regarded woman as a, j cross between an angel and an idiot, and petted her when she gave away to the weaknesses that were supposed to belong to. her sex.

CORNWALL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
COENWALL. Cornwall is a land of echoes. It is full of hidden places where dwell the memories of bygone days, full of creeks, coves, and valleys where many a haunt' ing presence lingers. Some of us, it may be, have seen, strange little men no higher than a span, little green men at play among the glasses or the moonbeams, seen tiny greyish gnomes perched a-swinging on the thistle seed: or been aware of shadowy figures peer ing in the woodlands, figures wi*h a frozen smile and long arms waving, faces lurking, for good or evil, in the leafage between each twisted bough. Or we have heard, in some unrippled creek, at dead of night, the wailing of one doomed to everlasting sorrow. We have listened to the whistling of the «~ind in some, old chimney-stack among the mines where the' owls now boot and scream in sole possession; to the sighing of the wind among tbe sand hills, with that strangest of all sounds between earth and heaven, the hollow echo of a sigh. We have heard the booming of th...
GOUT AND GOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
GOUT A»D GOUT. Gout ravaged the aristocrat a hun dred years ago. The victims were rather proud of it, so long as it was understood that it was 'rich man's gout,' which comes from drinking too much, and not 'poor man's gout,' which comes from eatinp too little. — 'hay Thoughts of a Dean,' by Dean Inge.

THE USEFUL ASTERISK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
THE USEFUL ASTERISK. A writer owned an Asterisk, . And kept it in his Den, Where he wrote tales (which had large . sales) Of frail and erring men; And always, when he reached the point Where carping Censors lurk* He called upon the Asterisk To do his dirty work. At first the. gentle Asterisk Would blush a rosy red. But, soaked with sin, it soon rushed in, Where Angels fear to tread; Aud revelled in the sort of scenes That run along like this: ' 'Nothing can matter . . . but our love . . . * ? 'Her soul was in that kiss. — 'What the Queen Said,' by Stod dard King.

ESSENCES: The Latest Books j THE AGNOSTIC. The notion that washing is dangerous had been discredited long before my memory begins, but a hundred and fifty years ago the maxim seems to have been, 'Hands often, feet seldom, bead never!' fifty years ago there was a rage for cold baths, even in the winter, and on a January morning the family would ask each other at breakfast, 'Did you find ice in your bath?' which ' would be satisfactorily answered by all except little Tommy, who made the shocking confession, 'I don't know.' — ''Lay Thoughts of a Dean,' by William Balph Inge, Dean of Saint Paul's.

SEA CHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
SEA CHANGES Tbs stranding of ilie motor ship Temeraire, well known in Aus tralian waters/ as well as in the northern hemisphere, suggests, by its very name, some radical sea changes. Temeraire, in tbe nomenclature of ocean craft, has a long and famous lineage. It was a wooden, wind blown Temeraire that Britain captured from France long before the days of the Anglo-Gallic Entente; and, when that same sailing war ship was ultimately towed to the breaking-up wharves, Turner and a poet as famous as Turner combined to immortalise tbe strange eon junction of the old wind-blown craft and its modern paddle tug. To turn from wind to steam was certainly a radical transformation illus trated rn Turner's painting of the Temeraire; but that nineteenth cen tury artist would probably have been more surprised had he heard of a Temeraire driven by internal combustion engines, such as tbe one that has just stranded off the Swedish coast with a cargo of Aus tralian wool. ? . ?
