SEA HOUSES OF NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 26 May 1915

SEA HOUSES OP NEW GUINEA. In some parts of New Guinea whole towns are built " in the sea." The inhabitants are said to live in more or leas terror of the bush tribes, and, as a protec tion against them, construct their houses just off the shore. A European has had construc ted a summer villa, built after the native fanhion, -which cost him but 25 dollars. Two chiefs undertook the work,and received a little more than half the money, so that the laborers got a little over ten dollars. j The foreigner drew on the beach a rough ground plan of the ' house, showing the length and breadth, the division of rooms, and the two verandahs. One of the chiefs measured the plan with a piece of cane, marking the length and breadth, and then rolled up the cane and put it in hiB bag. He went home to his island, whence he returned in a few days with a gang of natives, with all the necessary logs, timber, and other materials lashed to them, including the sago palm leaves roofing and the cane for splitt...

The Pioneer. CRESSY[?] WEDNESDAY, MAY 26. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 26 May 1915

CRESS*. WEDNESDAY, MAY 25. War is obliging men to think 89 they nevei- thought bofore. and, as a result, to throw aside many I of the ir long cherished notions. It is sixty years since Great Bri tain was engaged in any great war, and even the Crimea con cerned the prestige rather than the existence of the Empire. So a generation arose, matured, grew old, dropping unpleasantly into the conviction that science has made war so terrible that great nations would shrink from it, and that the reign of peace would be disturbed only by struggle between the less civi lised peoples. The notion has been rudely shattered, and it is not surprising that educational methods adopted by those who fancied Greater Britain would never fight, save perhaps tojpun ish some semi-savage race, are being closely questioned. Thus one day we have Mr Herbert Brooks asking the Victorian Minister of Education to appoint a Commission to inquire whether the children of our State schools are being crammed, whether the...

MOTORING AND OTHER ELOPEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 2 June 1915

MOTORING AND OTHER ' ELOPEMENTS. One often hears now-a-days of fair ladies eloping with their motormen, and the commonest remark when such events happen is, " How could she ?" or "Just fancy, with a motorman ?" But is there nothing more than an ordinary masculine attraction fqr the feminine mind in a smart looking motorman, a skilled dri ver, gifted with a good manner, deferential yet independent, and well educated also, as often hap pens now ? There is. Just as the fair sex on a liner, say of the captain, "What a dear," and often wish thev were Mrs Cap tain, and just a3 the feminine of , them adore the actor, the singer, j or the author, so women in gene ral love a man of action who does things, controls things, and could control them, too, if the occasion arose. The sense of being absolutely dependent upon the man at the wheel has a pecu liar fascination, and results in the sense of trust broadening sometimes into senses of other things And, looking back, this attraction towards t...
