TREACHERY ON THE TRACK [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 21 June 1947

TREACHERY ON THE TRACK For. many days Bill (otherwise 'Gouger') Butler had searched tho barren ridges for outcrops that might reveal good jrOld. Blaz ing hot days and the swarming on him of millions of flies had failed to damp the spirit that keeps the indomitable gold prospectors (all 'gougers') constantly searching. Gouger, like his kind, dreamed day and night of the nuggets, so seldom found, but which lured every man who set out to follow this hazardous, slow, toilsome, but not unexciting life. Three weeks before Gouger But ler (so he told the Wanderer) had left the Tanami field, one of the most outback of all goldfields. There he had been able to get at least some tinned food and occas ionally corned beef and bacon plus — and this was important to him — a few congenial souls for company. There was nothing like nights of companionship among men of his kind able to swap tall yarns of ..long treks and fortunes on. The glitter of gold was back of all their stories. It stirred the bl...
