RIBBON STONE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

RIBBON STONE Between Banka Banka and New castle Waters, and on the hills to the right on the \vuy up going to Darwin 'and becoming more plenti ful further east, is the country that supplies that beautiful orna ment known as Ribbon Stone. It arrives in various colors, princi pally mauve to a deep red, through it are bands of colors that has made the name 'Ribbon Stone.' This stone polishes into a magni ficent brooch or any other orna ment and it is as well as being rare, most impressive. All stones in Centralia can be cut at Dal heimers, Queen Street, Melbourne. The Editor knows, he paid for those darn rubies that the gold — or say jewel — diggers wheedled out of him.

OPEN AIR KITCHEN AT DRY BORE [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

OPEN AIR KITCHEN AT DRY BORE 'Ihis photo shows the energy displayed by our aboriginals when enclosed in a compound. It is generally thought that such burly men might be more usefully employed in doing useful work on the stations, roads, or water conservation work, than in getting free * rations, clothes and all the othergood things for nothing. The abo, under the skin, is a real good individual, he is kind, patient, is a good friend and not lazy until made so by environment. We personally like him immensely, he is a good servant and a faith ful one, does afair day's work and responds to good treatment. Most men employed oit stations and mines have stayed there for years, and the proof that they are satisfied is that they, after long spells, always come back. Just why a nation has decided to kill thern off by putting them in compounds and making their happy lives a miser able one, has us Territorians puzzled.

SALVAGING THE DUTCH DAKOTA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

SALVAGING THE DUTCH DAKOTA Mr. Peter Eveleigh told us an interesting story of the salvaging of the Dutch Dakota plane which was wrecked some; miles from Katherine. He said that ho, together with Monty Sullivan, Hob Thompson, and three Dutchmen, left by truck from Yeuralba, (i8 miles from Katherine. They crossed the river about 155 miles above Katherine, and followed it up on the northern side. It took 4i days to reach the plane, a distance of approximately 55 miles. The country was still very boggy and the truck was badly bogged several times. They had ejght bad crossings and had to dig away tons of sand before they could negotiate them. During dismantling operations, the grass round the plane caught fire, caused, no doubt, by the dropping of a cigai'ette butt, and the fire went right through the plane, burning the rubber dinghy, and although there were 240 gal lons of petrol in the tanks, it was miraculous that the plane itself did not catch fh-e. The cargo which they brought back ...

MAGNESIA SPOILING WATER [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

MAGNESIA SPOILING WATER ?During the past heavy rains, a large bole was washed out and the railway disjointed at a place near Heavy Tree Gap. Now this hole being below the water level is running a small stream into the Todd River, with this stream is a quantity of magnesia, which while not affecting it as a drinking asset, does great damage to crops of any description. One of the farmers just below, suggested that we draw the attention of the De partment who controls that sort of trouble, so that a small earth dam be put in front to stop' it reaching the river, before it is too late and affects the growing plants. 'No,' said the club mit, 'I never said he was conceited. All I said was that if I could buy him at my price and sell him at his own, I'd make a darned good profit.'

OURSELVES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

OURSELVES June iiOth being the end of the financial . year, advertisers are notified that their account will go forward in a few days. A glance at the scale of rates will show you where you stand. The larger the apace used, the cheaper in proportion, and anyone wishing to take the larger amount of inches should write in and make a con tract for a specified time. . It is not necessary to have all advertisements the same size and different scales show how this is approached. A letter stating that you require the advertisement for a specified time is regarded, as a contract and will be treated ac cordingly. This month's account will be charged at the rate for the stand ing rate for one month. But if the advertiser decides to take three, six or 12 months, the diff erence will be credited in next month's account. For instance, say an advertiser wants the 1248 inches, which will cost him 5d. per inch, he will be charged one twelth of that amount, and the letter stating what is wanted must...

Mr. Leonard is also the owner of the Gigantic mine. Some of the gold . d-e shown the Editor looks very good indeed. We stopped him showing this to the staff.

We do not want promises, we want action, and if land is ac ('liih'ed and we do not like this word, then the man from whom it is acquired should be adequately paid by getting similar land else where, with fair recompense for hi.1: trouble.

THE DARWIN TOWN PLAN APPLICATION OF ZONING Part 4 (Continued) [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 28 June 1947

THE DARWIN* TOWN PLAN APPLICATION OF ZONING P Part 4 (Continued) (7) SHOPPING AND COMMER CIAL : The main zone radiat es from the intersection of Smith and Daly Streets, the new shopping block being located on the northwest side of Daly Street. Commercial offices will be located between McLachlan and Daly Streets. It will be a matter for the Board to define the different uses from the zoning table. In addition to the main shopping centre, each division will have its minor shopping centre to cater for local, needs. -8) FARMING : The area acquir ed for Darwin and Greater Darwin is about 88 square miles. The reason that such a large area was taken lies in the fact that a town such as Darwin must have sufficient area adjacent to it to house the various defence and other installations in such a geo graphic location. There is ? provision for small farms for the production of vegetables, tropical and citrus fruits, poultry and pig rais ing and other small farm pro jects. The area to he set ...
