HEATHER FOR HOUSING [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

HEATHER FOR HOUSING The purple heather and bracken which form so indispensable a part of Highland scenery have never been very popular with Scottish farmers. Their creeping menace is difficult to check and both have I'endered many hundreds of aci'es of good farming land. Two new developments, however, point to the possibility of these pests becoming a blessing. Mr. F. F. Nichol, of furnace, has succeeded in making boards from dried bracken which, he cleaims, can be used for wall lining. A Dutch firm has also been ex perimenting with Scottish heather and finds that it is suitable for converting into synthetic flooring. Tests have proved so successful that it is hoped soon to establish a factory in the West of Scotland to produce this material so urgent ly required for housing. There is an old saying that if you keep a thing long enough you will find a use for it. Scotland has kept its heather a long time, dur ing which it has pleased mainly poets and tourists. If now the magic hand o...

The Fairy Queen was holding a ball and this particular fairy had been invited. She had had a beautiful frock made for the occasion, it was the blue of the skies,' as light as thistledown, and wais trimmed with silver like the stars. ?'-The morning before the ball the fairy was baking in her tiny kit chen when she heard a knock at the door. She opened it and there stood a gnome that nobody liked. He rushed past her and went into her bedroom and snatching up the new dress ran away with it. The poor fairy sat down and cried, for she was too tired to chase him, and now she would have no dress for the ball that ? night. It so happened that the Queen went by in her carriage just then and heard the fairy crying. She told her driver to stop and got out to see for herself what the matter was. The fairy told her and the Queen said not to cry but to come in her ...

HOMELY Jones, on his way home, late and the worse for having a few with the boys, was attacked by thugs. They beat him black and blue, dumped him into the gutter, and turned his pocket inside out. 'Is that all you've got ?' sneered one. 'That's all, dear,' murmured the dazed one. 'I only kept back a shilling for tobacco.'

EXPLORERS REPORT OF 1896-7 [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 12 July 1947

EXPLORERS' REPORT OF 1896-7 An article appears in this issue under the heading: 'Some Abor iginal Ceremonies'. The report'' was by Professor Baldwin Spencer and Mr. J. F. Gillen, after whom our Mt. Gillen was named. We think the report rather overdrawn in places but, nevertheless, is in teresting and for that reason is published. The article has been reprinted from 'The Australasian' dated February 25, 1899.. Next week a story headed : 'Australian Aborigines'' of the same date, will appear. We are indebted to Mr. Doug. Boerner, of Alice Springs, who kindly supplied both cuttings.
