STEAMER'S BOILER EXPLODES Melbourne, Thursday. When a valve blew out in the boiler room of the Commonwealth steamer   Ferndale the explosion was heard   two miles away.

THE LIFE WORK OF SIR PATRICK MANSON AND ITS INFLUENCE UPON TROPICAL COLONISATION [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 1 July 1927

THE LIFE WORK OF SIR PATRICK MANSON AND ITS INFLUENCE UPON TROPICAL COLONISATION It is difficult especially for non medical readers to appreciate in re- trospect the effect of great discov- eries in tropical medicine upon the everyday life of the planter and official in the outposts of the Em- pire and to gauge the extent to which commercial prosperity has followed in the train of these discov- eries. The great strides made since the opening of the present century in   our knowledge of the natural history of tropical disease were mainly the direct outcome of the genius of one man-Patrick Manson. Born in 1844   in a small town in Aberdeenshire he went immediately after taking his medical degree at Aberdeen to take charge in 1865 of a small British colony at Takao in the island of For mosa. The five years which he spent there were devoted to the keen ob servation of the many unknown dis- eases in his district and he reflected deeply upon the general ignorance...

THRILLING EXPERIENCES Saturday [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 5 July 1927

THRILLING EXPERIENCES Saturday We left Carnavo n at seven-thirty five this morning and weather condit ions were perfect. We very soon saw that we were making towards bad weather and after an hour's fiyng passed through thick rain clouds. We reached Geralton at eleven twenty and departed from there at one o'clock. We soon found that we had strong head winds to encounter and repeated rain clouds made flying unpleasant. When about one hundred miles from Perth we encountered, a severe storm and pilot Anderson took our machine to twelve thousand feet to avoid some of its fury. The wind and rain increased and threatened to interfere with our engine. We changed our course at this time to avoid serious trouble and as a result we were one hour and a quarter be hind time on our arrival at Perth at five thirty where we had; a thrilling experience.

Methodist Mission Station [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 5 July 1927

Methodist Mission Station The Rev. J W. Burton, M. A , Gen eral Secretary of the Methodist Mis. sionary Society of Australia, returned on Thursday from his official visit to the Mission Station on Goulburn Is- land and Millingimbi. He reports that the missionaries are all well and that the word is going on smoothly and happily. He made onreful inquiries . into the recent attack by the natives upon the mission party at Millingimbi but could find no trace of any enemies against the missionaries. It appeared, to be a childishly cunning plot on the part of the boy called Larry to lead the other natives into trouble, and apparently bad no significance from the missionary point of Tiew. Nothing could be more friendly than the atti- tude of the natives of whom as many as four hundred look upon the Mission Station at Millingimbi as their borne. Work among such a crowd of people is of course exceedingly difficult, and the rations for the station alone costs the Missionary Sooiety approximate...
