Mr. Gregory, of West Australia, speaking in the House of Represen tatives, referring to expenditure at the Federal Capital, said he had never seen such waste and extravagance, such wretched work, or such badly finished jobs as was the case at Canberra. When a loose engine crashed into the rear of a goods train on the Blue Mountains at two o'clock this morning, both the engine and brake van of the train became derailed. The crews escaped with a severe shaking. The Steamship Owners' Association promised the Prime Minister that they will take steps for maintenance of essential shipping services. This is taken to mean that free labor will be employed if necessory. There are now 8 steamers laid up at Syd ney. The crews of several steamers received, 23 hours notice of dismissal from owners last night. Coogee Electoral Council has se 1 ? 2.-J T 7\ K T~\ ? ? : ? 1 ? X. _ xecieu u. iv ±. jL/uiiuii...

HUSBAND OF PATIENT GIVES EMPHATIC DENIAL (To the Editox:).

CLATTERING TONGUES OF SCANDALMONGERS Villifying Out Hospital THE PRESIDENT TAKES UP CUDGELS. (To the Editor). Dear 'Mr. Editor,— Will you allow me, in your valuable paper, to say a few. words to combat the adverse criticisms and unjust charges that have been made against the manage ment and staff of our Hospital, at tention to which, although only street 'talk and gossip, was so persistent and emphatic, the Committee had no alternative but to make a full in vestigation. The first, and most serious charge, was tha't the whole staff, with the exception of one nurse, was absent from duty when three cases, the result of the accident last Tuesday morning, were taken to the Hospital; that patients could not get proper treatment; 'and there wex'e no beds available. This is quite untrue, and a base slander on our -Hospital and staff. I have the signed declaration of Mx-. H. Kenny, 'supported by Mr. Chas. Butcher, Dr. Byrne and a number of others, that the patients were met at the enti-ance ...
SIZE OF THE UNIVERSE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 17 September 1928
SIZE OF THE UNIVERSE Sir J. H. Jeans in a recently pub lished book on astronomy says: 'The moon, our nearest neighbour, ' is 240,000 miles away from us, a dis tance which light traverses in a lit tle over' one second. The farthest astronomical objects whose distances are known are so remote that their light takes over one million years to reach us.' Beyond Neptune, 2800 million miles from the Earth, is a great gap which divides the solar system from the rest of the universe. The first j object on the far side of the gap is the faint star Proxima Centauri, at a distance of 25,000 million miles, or more than 8000 times the distance of Neptune. The nearest stars are almost exactly a million times as re mote as the nearest planets. If we represent the Earth's orbit by a cir cle of the size of a full stop — -a hun dredth of an inch in radius — the sun becomes an entirely invisible speck of dust, and the. Earth an lutrami ;croscopic particle a millionth of an inch in diameter. On this sca...
IRONY OF BERNARD SHAW [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 17 September 1928
IRONY OF BERNARD SHAW 'The 'Daily News,' London, has received a pencil-written letter, signed 'Consul, Junor, the Monkey House, Regents Park. The original 'Consul' was a world famous performing chimpanzee. The letter purports to protest, on behalf of fellow eruests at the Zoo, against Dr. Edward Bach's statement that 'Anthropoid apes are extremely cruel and sensual,' and 'that their ?characteristics may be weakly repre- j sented in the original graftee ' (Voronoff gland controversy) but that his or her progeny may display accentuated ape characteristics.' The. letter adds: 'We apes are a pa tient and kindly race, but this is more than we can stand. Has an ape ever torn the glands from a living man and grafted them on to another ape for the sake of a brief and unnatural extension of life? Was Torqueman da an ape? Were the Inquisition and the Star Chamber monkey houses? Were Luke's iron crown and Damien's steel bed the work of the apes? Was it necessary to found a society for the prot...
