The new houses IO ue uuilir av run xvoumiu ait ^xjiv^iijf required to accommodate the em ployees in the steel industry. When. they have been erected their tenants will require furniture and fittings.

Wake up, Charlie! * * ? * ' When is the Anglers' Club going to wake, also, and put on a few outings for their rod fishing members?

THE BUNYIP "The Speewah Station" [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 10 November 1937

THE BUNYIP 'The Speewah Station' (BY 'FREELANCE'). 'A little nonsense now and then Is relished by the wisest men.' Old Adage. Who has not heard of this mythical station in Australia, which, in the days before motor and air transport, was supposed to be the other side of Sundown, away beyond the 'Never Novei1' t-f oiu- boyhood dreams, past the end of the rainbow: the place wnere Mir,, irooic urns u.% me pelican build:; her nest. 'The creek at the lord was but fet lock deep When we watched thorn crossing tnore. But the rains hr.ve replenished it ihvieu since then, And thrice hath the rock lain bare; But our hopes have vanished; we watch in vain, For never from blue hills' crest Come back the men by the sands de voured, Where the pelican builds her nest.' Only a few of the men who went there ever returned, and it is from them we have heard the wonderful tales about 'The Speewah' and its manager — Crooked Mick. He was call ed Crooked Mick, not because he was an unfair dealer— for a squa...

NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 10 November 1937

NOTES (By 'Niblick'). Poking our nose for news into the affairs of the party, we are informed that a certain poker machine was played more than the putters; that two officials of the Nowra Club mono polised the machine for about two hours, and that their perseverance was eventually rewarded. It is whis pered that one of the winners sold his threepenny chips for sixpence. Asked the usual question, 'What sort of a day did you have?' a mem ber of the party replied, 'We had a big day and a little night,' which sounds alright, but takes some work ing out. Weather was good, and the greens and fairways in excellent order. A field of 55 played for the cup. Mention was made of a rather re markable incident on the fourteenth. Laurie Harrison got away a good drive down the centre, and Jack Eastburn, with his usual swaying swipe, follow ed along the same track and knocked Laurie's ball yards off the line. A fortnight ago the writer stated that some consideration should be given to the question ...

OPEN COLUMN (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 10 November 1937

OPEN COLUMN ? o ? (To the Editor). Sir, — I have read with great inter est the writings of 'Freelance' on snakes, appearing in your recent issue, ^nd wish to add my support to his observations in ophiology. As one who comes from the big snake country of the western rivers, I have made a close study of their habits and the common stories that are attached to them. nlacins no credence in the latter on account of what I have seen and have been told by experienced bushmen from those and other parts of the .country. Yet there is one point that I have never been able to clear up, either by obser vation or by inquiry; but since 'Free- lance' has expounded his knowledge as one of authority on this subject, perhaps he can throw some light on the following question, that has been worrying ajl ophidian students: Do snakes build their own burrows or holes? Yours, etc., ? 'THE BERK,'

OPEN COLUMN (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 10 November 1937

OPEN COLUMN (To the Editor). , Sir,—I read with great interest ?Freelance's' article in your last issue, in which he 'nailed' several of the popular beliefs with regard to snakes. As regards the mother snake swal lowing her young, however, I can give him a concrete case to prove that his fc.fen bujfamen were probably wrong. While looking for email in a na/Mnnir at Worrigee some months ago I noticed about half a dozen small snakes from six to eight inches long make off from different places in the one direction. Curious as to why they all took exactly the same route, I in vestigated, and had not gone far into a patch of tussocks when I saw a black snake of five feet in length mov mg sluggishly away. , I shot it to pieces, and was amazed to find that I had slaughtered nine snakes with the one shot— eight of them about the size of those I had first seen. Of course, I cannot say that they were the same snakes, but it looked to me that the mother snake had swallowed her offspring at the ...
