THE BLOOD OF MARLEE [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 26 December 1939

THE BLOOD OF MARLEE By Charles Broome I I There was a cool assurance in the way Con spoke. He was going to show the police oflicor what real tracking was like. He slipped quiet ly into the water and swam strong ly downward, like a turtle. Dwyer watched him until he turned in un der the overhanging rock and dis appeared. Minutes went by — half an hour passed — and the officer grew anxious, walking impatiently up and down. But there was no re appearance of the swimmer. After waiting for an hour, the sergeant gave him up for lost, for the idea that Con was following Choocan through some underground passage seemed loo fantastic altogether. lie made a bundle of the tracker's ef fects, strapped it to his saddle, and, leading Con's horse, he rode back to the distant camp. He was froth ing with auger at the thwarting of his hopes. The situation seemed worso than ever. Little information was vouchsafed to the others, how ever. Dwyer told them that they still had the tracks and that he would ...

The club and bookmakers remain firm, and the place total isator was the only betting medium. The committee of the club met on Sunday night and decided not to hold another dog racing meeting at the track until early in the New Year. Another disappointing attendance saw tile racing. Some of the best dogs in training were engaged. Fields were up to the standard. There , were only six scratclii...

Finns Succeed On All Fronts Fourth Week Of Campaign CONDITIONS FAVOUR THE DEFENDERS [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 26 December 1939

[?] Four ill Week Of Campaign CONDITIONS FAVOUR THE DEFENDERS (Daily War Commentary Supplied by Department of Information) The fourth week of the Russo-Fmnish war closes with reports of Finnish successes on all fronts. The fortified Mannerheim Line, in ? -the south, has successful!}*' withstood the shock of repeated attacks. In Central Finland the Soviet drive towards the Gulf of Bothnia has been temporarily halted. In the north, where the invading forces have hitherto made most progress, they are in full retreat. The Soviet Government appears to have started this war without a clear appreciation of the very real difficulties facing ' any invader of Finland. The advantages possessed by the Soviet Union in this struggle of superior man-power, more ad vanced mechanisation, naval and aerial predominance, are very largely discounted by the conditions obtaining in Finland. In the centre and south, vast forests and countless lakes hind er an offensive action by large armies. It is not unt...

Household Hints [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 26 December 1939

Household * Hints. The prize for the best house hold hints this week has been awarded to Mrs. B. Kime, Mt. Thorley, Singleton. When cooking rhubarb try adding the pulp of three or fi-ur passion fruit when almost cooked. It's a great im provement to the flavour. Tumblers which have contained milk should always be rinsed with cold water before being put in warm water, as hot water will give them a cloudy effect. Ninon or other thin fabric will machine much easier if a sheet of tis sue paper is put on it for the needle to sew through before entering the material. To prevent a lamp from smoking dip the wick in vinegar and let dry before using. If a piece of bread is put on the cabbage when being put on to cook it will prevent most of that unpleas ant odour. Mrs. B. Kime, Mt. Thorley, Sing leton. -3- -S- Add a little ammonia and borax to water in which clothes are soaked, and it will whiten them and make them easier to wash..

World Achievement Dizzy Heights [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 26 December 1939

World Achievement Dizzy Heights We have already mentioned the Stratosphere whicli pro fessor Piccard had so daringly explored; aud now it may be worthwhile to know a little of the way in which he reached the height of 9i miles on May 27, 1931. It was decided to make the ascent in a metal gondola that could, be hermetically sealed. Globe-shaped and 7 feet in diameter, the exterior was painted white on the upper hemis phere to reflect the brilliant rays of the sun which otherwise would have so heated the metal that the internal temperature might have been unbearable; and the lower hemisphere was painted black so that it might, absorb the heat rays reflected from the earth, in order to keep the internal air pleasantly warm. Tho gondola was entered through a small man-hole fitted with an air-tight trapdoor. The enormous gasbag to which the gondola was fixed was inflated to only one quarter of its capacity at the beginning of the ascent in order to allow for the gos-expanslon which would...
