Girls' Club [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
[?] My Dear Girls, I was pleased to see that you en joyed our. talk on. books, aud now I am going to say a little about poetry. 'There are a great many people who do not care the least bit about poetry, and regard it as nonsense. Such people do not realise what they are missing, for to be able to appreciate and enjoy good poetry is a gift from Heaven. 'Beautiful thoughts make beautiful lives,' and in poetry thought is always clothed in beautiful terms. Poetry helps one to cultivate a love for the beauti ful, and when you love beautiful tilings life is not nearly so dull and uninterest ing, but is always full of possibilities to the searcher after Beauty. I have so many favourites among the poets that it is hard to enumerate them alL Shakespeare, of course, is always first, but hi« 'strains of martial music-' may not appeal to all, and the very young find him hard to understand. Everyone, however, should become fa miliar with the works of Shakespeare as they grow older, because his p...

OUR SERIAL STORY. All Rights Reserved. The Enchanted Peril By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. Chapter XV If Peter Sennett were disturbed by the doctor's intention to murder him, he certainly did not show it. He knew he was utterly and completely in the power of Warringford and it was part of his philosophy not to worry about things which could not be helped. ''Y'OU are going to kill me?' He re 1 'peated the doctor's words. 'May I ask when you propose to bring about that interesting event?' 'Almost immediately,' answered Wallingford. 'You see, I want (o bring Miss Molly Merton— that isn't her real name, by the way — to see you when you have — er — passed away.' Sennett. made a convulsive effort to rise from his chair, but he was power less as though he were held there by iron hands. 'You can't be such a brute,' he ex claimed. 'Look here, Wallingford, I'm not afraid to die, but I must im plore you not to visit your malignity upon Miss Merton. How could you be so vile as to do such a thing? And why ...

THE WHITE BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
THIS WHITE BIRDS. 1 would that we were, my beloved, white birds on the foam of the sea ! We tire of the flame of the meteor, be fore it can fade and flee; And the flame of the blue star of twi light, hung low on the rim of the sky, Has awaked in our hearts, my beloved, it sadness that may not die. A weariness comes from those dreainerfi, dew-dabbled, the lily and rose; Ah, dream not of them, my beloved, the flame of the meteor that goes, Or the flame of the blue star that lingers hung low in the fair of the dew; For I' would we were changed to white birds on the wandering foani: I and you ! I am haunted by numberless islands, aud many a Danaan shore, Where Time, would surely forget us, and Sorrow come near us no mure; Soon far from the rose and the lily, and fret of the flames would we be, Were we only white birds, my beloved, buoyed out on the foam of the 6ea ! — W. B. YEATS.
