Boomerangs in Egypt. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

Boomerangs in Egypt.                     The Earl of Carnarvon, interviewed by   the representative of the London "Times" at Marseilles, mentioned that, amongst the objects found in the recently discovered tomb of Tutank-Hamen, the heretic king,     which was recently unearthed in Egypt, were two silver boomerangs. He stated that designs found in the tomb showed   that the ancient Egyptians were adept at     duck hunting with boomerangs as their         only weapons, although it is doubtful if         they used silver boomerangs in actual prac- tice.       ______________         &amp...

The Southern Cross ROMANCE OF AN AUSTRALIAN PEARL. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

The Southern Cross ROMANCE OF AN AUSTRALIAN PEARL Re the most famous of Australian pearls,     The Southern Cross, I wonder (writes a correspondent to a city exchange) how many people know that the "sudden riches acquired by Shiner and his mate for their wonderful find, amounted in all to £140. It seems hardly creditable, when a short time afterwards, at the Colonial and Indian Exhibition, that same gem was val- ued at £10,000. Such, however, is the case. When taken from the shell it was not the perfect (or nearly so) cross exhibited in London. The part which formed the right arm of the cross was lower than its op- posite. This little error of the oyster was rectified by the buyer. With this altera- tion and much publicity, it got big notice during the crowded time of the exhibition. Small as it afterwards appeared, Kelly was always well satisfied with the price he got. What he and his mate objected to was the tale circulated later. Had the cross, as they f...

LIFE IN THE "NEVER NEVER." A WHITE WOMAN'S UNIQUE JOURNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

LIFE IN THE "NEVER NEVER."             A WHITE WOMAN'S UNIQUE JOURNEY. Miss Lily Butler, C.B.E., who gained wide popularity in Paris among Australians and other soldiers by whom she is known as         the "Mother of Blighty," says the Mel-bourne "Age," has returned to Melbourne from a journey which, for a white woman is unique. She has visited part of the Nor- thern Territory, Central Australia, and away up in the corner of the States of     South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland. She has suffered hardship, but she has seen the Australian bush in its true light. She has been impressed with the magnificent hospitality and the chiv- alry of the Australian bushman, and she is convinced that the bushwoman is the fin- est character she has ever met. Every where     Miss Butler received such kindness...

WILL WOOL PRICES [?]LD. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

WILL WOOL PRICES HOLD. Slight fluctuation has latterly been no -     ticable in values at wool auctions both in         Australia and the United Kigdom (says   "The Forum" in a recent issue). Irregu-   larity in demand however, has not been entirely responsible for the occasional slight drop in prices. Merinos have been     mostly affected and the offerings of them have not been quite up to the mark in     length and condition. In London, supplies     of merino have been most sparse. Results however, though not equal to the highest peak recorded this season, have been de - cidedly good and, if sheepowners could permantly secure equally satisfactory re - turns, no complaint would be lodged. '         The chief concern of Australian wool - growers is whet...

The Brisbane Trams. COMPENSATION UNSETTLED. MATTER FOR FULL COURT CASE. BRISBANE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 5 January 1923

The Brisbane Trams. COMPENSATION UNSETTLED. MATTER FOR FULL COURT CASE. BRISBANE: Thursday. Although the Brisbane tramways were formally taken over by the Brisbane Tram-     ways Trust from the Tramways Coy. on New Year's Day the question of the amount of compensation to be paid the company still remains to be settled. The main ques- tion at issue is that of goodwill, and the dispute on this point involves an amount of upwards of half a million sterling. The     case comes before the Full Court early next month when the Bench is to be extended to the largest possible number for the oc- casion and probably will comprise five to   seven members. The decision of the Full     Court will, of course, be subject to appeal to the High Court or Privy Council.
