For the Children THE WIND [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 19 July 1947

For the Children BY JULIA ANNE THE. WIND Once upon a time there lived in the hills, a wind. Now you might think that there is only one wind, well, you're wrong. There is the hot North wind; the cold South wind; the wind from the West which brings the rain, and the East wind which blows it back again. Besides these bijr power ful winds, there ai'e many little winds, such as the breeze that blows your hat away or makes little waves on the top of the swimming pool. Our wind is one of these little breezes. Early one morning, just as the sky was turning silver, before the rosy dawn, the little breeze stir red from his hill-top and blew down the hillside to the valley bo low. He gently woke the birds in the trees, telling them that dawn was near. It swayed the trees and bent the grass before it, carry ing the white flufF of the dandelion on its wings to scatter it over the- rt! valley. It blew the autumn leaves from the trees into the water-hole made by the last rain, and then it scud ded...

We were pleased to have a chat with Mr. J. H. Vaughan this week. He was at one time Attorney General, while his brother was Premier.

PAINTED FINCH AND AN UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 19 July 1947

PAINTED FINCH AND AN UN KNOWN Some of the most beautiful birds that Australia possesses is the painted finch. This handsome bird is found in all the far parts of Northern Australia. Its colors are bright and varied, and thrives in captivity. With it often ap pears a small bird like a robin red breast, but so small that it might be mistaken for a vivid butterfly. It is 'so minute and flutters so soft ly that one can enjoy watching it for hours. Just what the name of this bird is, is not known, and so far we have never seen one similar in 1he museum.
