BRAYBROOK BARTERS BOGS TO BRISBANE. Sale of Sunshine's Sacred Soil [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 May 1924
BRAYBROOK' BARTERS BOGS 4 BRISBANE.!,, Sale of Sunshine's Sacred Soil To improve cricket wickets in Bris bane an order has been placed for 50 cubic yards of Sunshine soil, which is considered the best obtainable for the purpose. The shipment will be suffi cient for about 10 wickets. Now that our famous soil is in de mand for export, and train-loads of the volcanic rock which flourishes hereabout are sent away weekly, attention should be directed to other local commodities suitable for export. From our flourish ing crop of spring poets we could spare a few without seriously disturbing the home supply. We could also consider ably cull our flock of footballers, and in troduce some new blood to improve the strain. Our celebrated eau de Mari byrnong has no need to waste its fra grance on our unappreciative desert. There are' further fields for it to con qIuer. And if Brisbane.wants to be on a good wicket by having its foot on our native heath, what about the new Fede ral city ? It will b...

A Very Moral Song [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 May 1924
A Very Moral Song The kettle purrs upon the stove, The cat purrs on the chair; It surely is a pleasant thing To sec and hear them therel I lay the kettle on the chair, The cat upon the stove;. 'Tis strange, no more their voic'cs risC In amity and love. At once all sweet accord is fled, The kitty spits and swears; The kettle, dumb with horror, sits And whispers kettle prayers.

THE STOCKMAN'S FLIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 May 1924
THE STOCKMAN'S FLIGHT By CYRIL H. BUCKINGHAM Come! Hold up, old neddy, What? stumbling already And our day's work has scarcely begun ? I know it's hard going While this hot wind's blowing, And the cattle are mad on the run. I can see by the fears Of the near-at-hand steers They are likely to give us some trouble, For the smoke gathers thickly And the air is quite' sickly With the fumes of the half-con sumed stubble, Watch your steps, do not mind you Of things far behind you; Such sights are not good to behold; For perhaps very soon We will witness black ruin And you'll wish you had never been foaled. In our wake fiercely burns The sc:ub and the ferns; And the great flames are leapinig and lashing, The hills are all quaking With the tumult it's making, And the huge trees are constantly crashing. See the birds madly flying, HIear their piteous crying, As exhausted and dying they fall; A.nd the sun overhead Shines so sickly and red, And its rays cast a gloom over all. Look! Now the fir...

SUNSHINE RAILWAY YARD Happy Hunting Ground for Trespassers [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 May 1924
SUNSHINE RAILWAY YARD Happy Hunting Ground for Trespasse's The police court last week was presided over by Mr Macnamera, P.M., and was mostly occupied with charges against railway trespassers. In such minor breaches of the regulations the Bench wields the sword of jus tice in very vigorous style, the standard fine being 20/-, with 8. costs. Perhaps, of course, the Department issues the ukase to its officers that it is after revenue chiefly. The P.M. intimated that he intended to increase the fine in future, which looks like killing the foolish bird that lays the gol den eggs, Raymond Houndslow, Lindsay Caithness, Geo. Morris, Hugh Mason, Alex. Adams, and ,W. Wilson were each fined a sove reign and 8, - costs. Frank Hall had to be contenrt with a 40, - fine, 20,'- damages and 18, - costs for breaking a window pane at the railway sta tion. He had been over-alcoholised and his disordered intellect prompted him to push a beer bottle through the ticket window, for which heroic deed he wa...

CORRESPONDENCE To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate." [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 May 1924
CORRESPONDENCE To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate," Sir,-In your issue of 24th inst., ap pears a letter signed by Mr D. G. Munro. I (a Dad) heartily concur in every word and sentiment expressed therein, as I am sure the great majo rity of the citizens of Sunshine do, and I feel sure it will be a sorry day for any councillor who would move in the direc tion asked by J. IR. Robinson. Seeing that this gentleman was a soldier him self, I am not only surprised but as tounded that he should ask such a rek quest. The trees planted in Sun Cres cent were placed there in memory of our brave boys, and under no circum stances whatever should one of them be disturbed. Mr Robinson's residence has been erected since the soldier trees were planted, and I presume he was his own architect, therefore he should have taken these memorable trees into con sideration when laying out hisa motor drive.-I am, sir, A DAD UP IN ARMS.
