COOPER'S CREEK NATIVES Dr. Basedow On Their Extinction [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
COOPER'S CREEK .NATIIVES Dr. Basedow On Their Extinction Of all the Australian aborigines thel Cooper's Creek tribe has fared the worst; yet. perhaps, the memory of thceir doings is more romantic than any of the others. Dr. H. M. Basedow's anthropological resoearches amonf the aborigines of Australia have gained him world fame. When be learnt that the last of the tribes had become extinct he said: "It was through the kindness and humane feelings of these natives that the survivors of the ill-fated Burke and Wvills expedition were succored after their hazardous trip across the con tinent and the terrible disappointmentl at not meeting the relief expedition at the famous depot on the Cooper's Creek. "One has only to read the journals of explorers to verify these statements. The principal tribces located in the area are the Yanntawanna and the -Vongkanguru. These numbered thou sands of souls a few years ago. Under commission from the State Government I medically overhauled those tribes...
Quorn's Mayor for 21 Years Holds British Empire Record [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
Quorn's Mayor for 21 Years Holds British Empire Record Mr. Robert Thompson, Mayor of Quorn, holds a British Empire record. He has been in the Mayoral chair for 21 ydars-a length of service which is believed to be unequalled anywhere, except in America. It is not because nobody else wanted the job that Mr. Thompson has held it so long. He has had to fight for it, and last election he was opposed by a strong Labor opponent. He has had two ambitions, one to see Quorn lighted with electricity, the other to see a high school In the town, and he is about to have both gratified. The electric light wvire~s are ?now being taken into the houses, and the shell of the high school builling is up. Mr. Thompson was first elected to the coun cil in 1886, and has been Mayor withouti a break for the last nine years. In the art of welcoming Governors the Mayor has probably had as much MR. R. THOMPSON. experience as anybody in the State, for he has received thm all since Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton. Mr. T...

HONEY 3,300 YEARS OLD Found in a Tomb [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
HONEY 3,300 YEARS OLD Found in a Tomb Discovery in Tutankhamen's tomb of perfumes which still retain their scent recalls the equally amazing find in 1905 of a jar of honey, still liquid and still preserving its characteristic scent after 3,300 years. This remarkable announce ment was made in a communication to the National Geographical Society by James Baikie. The honey was found in the tomb of Yua, and Thuaa, father and mother of that Queen Tyi, whose influence played so great a part in Akhenaten's religious reformation. "The tomb was intact and the objects it contained were as perfectly preserved as though they had only been shut up a few weeks before," Mr. Baikie wrote. "An observer described his sensations on en tering the place as being very much like those of a man who enters a town house which has been shut up for the summer. "Armchairs stood about, beautifully carved and decorated with gold, thej cushions on one .i them ptuffed with down and covered with linen so perfectly p...
CHINA'S GILBERTIAN NAVY Pirates and Brigands [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
CHINA'S GILBERTIAN NAVY Pirates and Brigands Chinese pirates and brigands seem very much in the public eye at present. It is just an instance that, despite the clos ing network of civilisation, there still re main a.few couintries where boyish fancies come true (says. a writer in "The Cape Argus'') About two. years ago I: travelled on a river steamer from Hongkong to Canton in order to meet the leader of the Chinese rebels, Dr. Sun Yat Sen. While on board the river steamer I noticed two or three men constantly on the lookout and armed with modern rifles. These men were look ing for pirates, and at the first-sign of a junk attempting to come near would have fired without hesitation. Travel in China still has a good deal of excitement as well as romance. Rounding a bend of the river we sud denly came across several light cruisers, grey-hulled and sinister-looking, but dese crated by. a string of dirty washing strungj across the decks. "What is thatY" I asked the burly'? looking skippe...

EGYPT AND BABYLONIA An Authentic History [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
EGYPT AND BABYLONIA An Authentic History The first volume of "The Cambridge Ancient History" published recently deals with Egypt and Babylonia down to 1580 B.C. It places within reach of the public the results of the latest discoveries treated by some of the ablest experts. Indeed, it is scarcely too much to say that:none of. this history could have been written fifty years ago, so much has come to light in recent years. Take such a point as the origin of the alphabet: The Phoenicians can no longer be credited with the invention of writing. It is, however, known that they were im porting papyrus from Egypt about 1100 B.C. . .. The old theory of an Egyptian origin (of the alphabet) is again favored owing to the remarkable characters found at the mines worked by the Egyptians in the Sinaitic Peninsula .(? c. 1600 B.C.). Or take the appearance of the horse in the East: The first positive record is in a Baby lonian tablet of about 2100 B.C., where it is described as the "ass from the Ea...
