To the southward, hovever, shell is found in small but not payable quan tities, and the fishery is, as a rule, not worked further south than Prin cess Charlotte Bay for the taking of pearlshell.

TOMB IN ENGLAND THOUGHT TO BE HAMLETS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 10 October 1926

TOMB IN ENGLAND ? ♦ THOUGHT TO BE HAMLETS Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, Shake- . speare's 'moody Dane,' died in England, according to the Bev. L. G. Hunt, rector of Munsley, Herefordshire, and more over, he jgas buried near Munsley, Bays Mr. Hunt, who claims to have found his grave. Mr. Hunt found among ancient tombs around Munsley Church one with ap parently an 'upside down' inscription. the second might have beer an ''A,' the third an 'M,' and the fourth an 'L.' He submitted it to an expert, who gave a full rendering of 'Hamlet Xhethi 362,' and the date, if correctly., interpreted, would imply that the per son commemorated was one of the earliest ? Ghxistians in England, or that the Christian era had become officially current among his relatives there about » the time of his death. Xhethi is a dialect form of 'Jute,' and it must be remembered that the legendary Prince of Shakespeare's tragedy belonged traditionally to Jut land.

WHAT IS SPORT? World-Wide Controversy [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 10 October 1926

WHAT IS SPORT? ? » World-Wide Controversy (By 'Jack North.') 'The Gloomy Dean,' as the Eev. Ralph luge is facetiously du?-bed by ribald critics, who poke fun at his con servative views, makes reference in his 'Lay Thoughts' to a subject which just now is engaging a deal of attention in all English-speaking countries. Discussing the public school training of the .youth of thn Mntfcorion;? -* .,nnn. classes, he, with a sweeping literary ges turer conveys that these favoured mor tals alone learn how to 'play the game' ir. the truest sense. He quotes approvingly the statement of an American Rhodes scholar after a year at Oxford: 'What impresses me most is that here are 3000 young men, every one of whom would rather lose a game than play it unfairly.' This, says the Dean, is public school ethics, the code of the English gentleman, which largely through the noble game of cricket has percolated into the national character. Which would be all very well, and quite acceptable to Australian id...
