ACCIDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

ACCIDENTS Two serious accidents occurred today (Tuesday). Phil Lewland was hurt by a fall from a pole on the mains going through Heavy Tree Gap. Ray Egerton, in working a band saw, had the misfortune to have it break, a portion of the saw be- came imbedded in his back. He was immediately taken to hospital and his condition is as well as can be expected. We trust both men will soon be O.K. again, and they have our sympathy.

Northern Territory Bulletin NORTHERN TERRITORY LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

Northern Territory Bulletin     NORTHERN TERRITORY     LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL The Bill amending the Northern   Territory Administration Act, which provides for the formation of a Legislative Council for the Northern Territory, successfully passed the House of Representa- tives and the Senate at the end of the sittings last month. During the second reading, there was much debate upon the Bill and mild criticism was levelled at it from Government supporters and from Opposition, but most of this criticism was constructive and in no way meant that the average Member of Parliament was against the formation of a Council for the N.T. The only real criticism and endeavour to alter the terms of the Bill was put forward by the Member for the N.T., Mr. Blain, whose amendments, however, were not considered at length or ac- cepted. During the debate, the main con- tentious question relating to the comparison between the numbers of sel...

LONELY GRAVES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

LONELY GRAVES — :o: — In the wilderness of spinifex Waters and Anthony's Lagoon (N.T.), where fifteen years ago nomadic myalls seldom allowed a white man to pass unmolested, rest the remains of Jack Brady. Once famous throughout Western Queensland and the Territory for his deeds of daring horsemanship. Brady died of malaria while re turning from a droving trip, and several weeks passed before his body was discovered. He was buried where he was found, and, subsequently, his sister erected a headstone and iron railing around the lonely plot. Cattlemen later built a protec tive fence to repel wandering stock and native fauna. Stock men and passing drovers have tended and kept the grave in good condition. Besides the above article, we have a few miles from Alice Springs, on the Overland Tele graph, a'grave marked: In Mem   ory of C. Palmer, Died 1870, Overland Telegraph. This is well cared for, has an iron railing around and stones set in a square. An old identity told us t...

FIRST LADY TO COME TO THE TERRITORY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 5 July 1947

FIRST LADY TO COME TO THE TERRITORY — :o: — For some time arguments have been going on as to who was the first woman in the Territory. There are many claimants, and the Editor has made many enquir- ies. It appears that Mrs. Nicker, of that fine pioneer family, holds honor of place. Mrs. Nicker is still hale and hearty, and has brought up many strong and healthy children, who like their   mother, still thinks there is no place like the Territory. A well known and equally well liked son, Ben, was killed early in the last war, fighting like the hero he was, that we may live, and be free.

THE BEAUTY CONTEST [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

THE BEAUTY CONTEST The Big Four were, we thought, finished, but no, %ye received a let ter, not signed this time except by one. This says thev the Big Four are willing to have their photos taken if the Editor is also willing to have his taken in front of his unfinished building. Well, like Barkis, the Editor is willing and accepts the challenge. The only stipulation is that they pay up their subscription and do not con tinue to cadge the paper from someone who has paid fourpence for it. They are so eager for cheap advertising that they can also pay for the block, which will be returned and can later be sent abroad. We shall be only too pleased to headline them, and will also g-ive them their full title — a* heading such as 'These Are The Four B's'. No extra will be charged for a ful pedigree of each and what they have done to save Australia and Alice Springs. A further prize will be given if they can inform us where cement and carpenters can be secured. It is certain that five subsc...

RESULT OF CATTLE GOING TO PHILIPPINES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

RESULT OF CATTLE GOING TO PHILIPPINES Cattle under order for the Philippines are going to make a difference to the price of cattle in the Adelaide market. It has been a practice to purchase cattle from the North and send them to the Centralia areas for fattening and later forward to the southern market. Northern cattle breed very well indeed, but there is some- J thing missing in the northern ? grasses that does not agree with j fattening. Cattle up there ave rage generally only approximately (-()() lb., whereas the same cattle sent down this end, fill out and ? often reach the market 700 to j S00 lbs. However, providing the Philippines who are asking- for beef cattle to go 850 lb. agree to take lesser weights, the order can not be fulfilled. There is little doubt that they will accept lesser weights, because they need the beef. Consequently, only the lower half and in Central Australia, can the market in Adelaide be supplied. Small yardings mean higher prices and we can soon visual...

A SERIOUS ACCIDENT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

A SERIOUS ACCIDENT This is very serious. By mulga wireless we heard that a truck loaded with beer capsized some where along the north road, just who it belongs to is at present un known. But traffic is jammed at this spot, as it was stated that a number of bottles underneath are still unbroken. Just why the news was given us so lute is most an noying.

THE DESERT FUSHIA [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

THE DESERT FUSHIA It is doubtful if there are many who do not delight in the vision of a beautiful flower, and when it has with it charactei-istics that make it something out of the common, then it becomes almost precious. So we draw your attention to the Desert Fuschia, just what its botanical and latin names may be, we are unable to say. Its haunts are north-west of Alice Springs on the road leading to Wyndham. Apparently a hardy plant, it preferably . makes its abode on the side of a stony hill with sufficient soil to a depth of 12 inches. Tt has a spread of about two feet in diameter, and ::\ wide, fleshy looking leaves, which - spread along the ground approxi mately nine inches from the soil. But what makes this plant un orthodox is that tho» flowers grow underneath and is protected from the sun by the shade afforded by the leaves. The flower is a vivid red and opens in just the manner of a fushia, and in color and tex ture is much like Sturt's Desert Pea. It is really magnific...

A QUICK TRIP [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

A QUICK TRIP We have some smart carriers that transport goods in a way that .no one can complain about. They comprise Martin Bros., Lackman Agencies. Baldocks, and Jim Clarke. The latter has just com pleted an especially quick trip on a country road. Leaving Alice Springs at 2.30 on Monday after* noon he reached the Granites on Tuesday, 368 miles with just over ? twelve tons of loading. He un loaded and was back at Alice Springs at 2 p.m. on Thursday — a round trip of 73(5 miles over a country road, with sandy creeks and other troubles. The other carriers also make wonderful quick trips, starting to load often on Sunday night they do the 2.000 miles each week on a bitumen road. This in past years would take three weeks. A train could not do better than our trucks and there is less chance of a strike. 'It was strange that i should ?dream about my wife as T did last night.' 'What's so strange about that ?' 'I dreamed I was doing all the talking.'

WHO IS THE BIT ? [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

WHO IS THE BIT ? ? ? \s * ? Our last issue referred to the Big Four and a bit, and now the enquiry is who is the bit ? A jealously-guarded secret cannot be let out at' a minutes notice, some one asked our office boy on the quiet who this might be. Sonny put on' his wisest look, which by the way, is not unlike that habitually worn by the Big Four viz, not all there. 'Says he, well it could refer to a bit of a communist, or it could refer to a bitter pill manipulator, or again, to a man that peers through a cage to see if someone would shout him a bit more beer, again, it may refer to someone who charged the Diggers a' bit more for that beer during the war period. It's a bit of a problem and gives this paper's readers a bit more to smile at. Just wait until you see the cartoons when they arrive and you will have a bit more en joyment. It is quite certain that none of the team had any bits blown ofT them at the last war. Mother : Do you think that chorus girl is the right wife for you ...

DARWIN WATER PIPES [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

DARWIN WATER PIPES Darwin for more years than they like have been short of water, at last they secured a capable en trineer and one who advocated a dam some 40 miles away in a heavy rainfall area and in due course of time this was built. The site of the dam is approxi mately 40 miles south of Darwin and the visitor meets its entry into existence some miles closer on the road to Darwin. It delivers red hot water all ready for the tea pot in summer and could be used to run their north to south i-ailwa'y if steam could be held at same temperature. Nevertheless it is a grand effort, the water is excellent and is there in abund ance. This shows what may be done to help out Mother Nature to provide for the children of our far North. Darwin Water Pipes Darwin Water Pipes The photo is one taken by the Wanderer when on a recent visit to Darwin, where the good people made his visit an extraordinary pleasant one. He has an affection for Darwin and believes that this is to be the military headq...
