SEA BATHING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 10 October 1926
SEA BATHING * Watching the surfers of ILe Queensland beaches these summery days, it is difficult to realise that sea bathing is comparatively a nioderu pastime. Humanity may liave made its first evolutionary progress in the water, but our ancestors of a few centuries ago certaiuly looked upon water as a sort of mystery — a substance to lie drunk very sparingly if more potenr. fluids failed, possibly a means pf washing floors, or even the human hands on rare occasions. As for sea water, it was more sacred and more mys - terious, and the ancient Hebrew at least could not conceive a future felicity, save where there 'was no more sea.'' Old chronieles place the first use of the sea for bathing about the mid-eighteenth century, thougii some time before that salt water was a recognised cure for lunatics and for cases tof hydrophobia. In fact, giediaeval doctors did not thiuk anyone could willingly plunge into the ocean unless driven to that drastic step by fear of death. So they pre scrib...

THE ALARM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 10 October 1926
THE ALARM.. About half-way through my lecture I heard a bell ring and saw someone go out a door at the back of the chapel. &nbsp; Then a warder crept past and rushed out of the door behind. There were comings and goings until the Governor himself hurried past me. Still the bell went on ringing, and as it is a lecturer's business to continue in spite of flood, fire or earthquake, I went on too. By and by the Governor, re- turning, whispered: "Do you mind standing up straight, Mr. Kearton! You are leaning against a bell-push." "A Naturalist's Pilgrimage," by Richard Kearton.

INTERESTING "STUNTS" PICNIC AND CAMP [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
INTERESTING 'STUNTS' PICNIC AND CAMP There are a great many water 'stunts' that can be used at a picnic, where water is handy, or at camp where water is almost always at hand. They are exciting and funny. Here are directions for playing some of them: TUG-OF-WAR. A tug-of-war over a stream of water is fun, in which the losing side is pulled into the water- There is every reason then to pull and win, because, if you do uotj your whole side will be pulled by your opponents into the water and you \rill be 'all wet.' PICK-A-BACK WRESTLING. Pick-a-back wrestling can be done on land, but it's more fun, at least for the spectators, when done in the water. Two strong boys each put a lighter boy on their shoulders, and then ' wade out to where the water is up to their waists. At a. ; signal from the referee, the two boys on top try to wrestle each other off their seats and throw the others into the water. This is strenuous work, especially for the fellows underneiiih the horses, who hold ip t...

FRIENDLY VISIT BOYS SCOUTS OF ORIENT [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
FRIENDLY VISIT BOYS SCOUTS OF ORIENT Eeal enthusiasm for the spread of the Boy Scout movement in Japan and' in China is revealed in various news X»apcrs of those countries. Indeed, an important Osaka newspaper, in conjunc tion with the Federation of Japan Boy Scouts, invited the Boy Scouts ©f ttie elementary schools attached to the Nanyo Uuiversity of Shanghai to visit Japan. This journal believes these Chinese boys are burning with an eager desire to sec the sights of Japan and to taJk with Japanese boys who aTe destined to be their good friends in the future. They are good friends even now, we are told, and it is the belief of this Osaka daily that the Chinese boys will obtain useful information during their Rtav ir- Ja.T-»n. n-hfl that its ultimate effect will be for the greater good of Chinese-Japanese relations. Another Japanese newspaper which joiued in the invitation extended to the Chinese Boy Scouts k the Tokyo '-Tichi Nichi,' which affords an interesting view of the Japane...

THE BEARD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
THE BEARD. Among the Jews, Turks, and Eastern nations generally the beard has long been regarded as a sign of mauly dig nitv. To cut it off wilfully was a deadly insult, and the Jews were strictly for bidden to cut' it off ceremoniously, though shaving it was a sign of mourn ing. No greater insult could be offered to a man than to pluck or even touch his beard, hence the phrase 'to beard one,' to defy him, to contradict him flatly, to insult him. By touching or swearing by one's own beard one's good t'aith was assured. Peter the Great im posed a tax upon beards. Everyone. -tbove the lowest class bad to pay 100 roubles, and the lowest class had to pnv a kopeck, for enjoying the luxury Clerks were stationed at the gates of every town to collect the beard tax.
BOY SCOUTS QUEENSLAND SECTION ROVER COMPETITION [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926
BOY SCOUTS — ♦ QUEENSLAND SECTION ROVER COMPETITION A competition for -the Eover section will shortly be held, and in order to make this a test of real advanced scout ing a scheme has been devised on the following lines: — The Bovers will work in groups of four, and each group will consider itself the sole survivors of a vessel wrecked on a tropic island. From the wreck they hare salved a tomahawk, one cooking-pot, a scrap of leather, and a few blankets. Luckily they also s-i-'id :i little fJour, tea, sugar, rice, and salt pork, some potatoes, and a few bits of cordage washed ashore during the morning. With the above very limited means, the Rovers are expected to spend a com fortable week-end exploring their sur roundings and making such maps and descriptions a sa party in 6ueh cireum stances would do. In order to prove that such a thing was not only praiirieatJe but could be made also thoroughly enjoyable, a party of scouters gave it a try out. during last week-end ; and if everyon...
