PLANES LAND AT EXETER. GOING TO SEE THE FLEET. Four aeroplanes passed over our district on Friday afternoon bound for Sydney. Six left Melbourne on Friday morning to act as a guard of honor when the British fleet arrived in Sydney, but owing to the very bad weather experienced at Exeter, only four of the aeroplanes reached Richmond late on Friday afternoon. of mist near Moss Vale Flying Of ficers Leggett and Burgess lost their positions in the formation, and made a forced landing at Exeter. Flight-Lieutenant Brownell stated that the inclement weather experi enced in the last stage of the journey was most unexpected, as the sky was clear and sunny when they left Coota mundra. Indeed, flying conditions, he said, were so favorable, that the planes were able to proceed above the clouds as faT as Goulburn. After passing that city the weather became worse, and about 29 miles south of Moss Vale strong squalls were en countered. Dense clouds of miBt appeared to envelop the railway line, and...

DEATH OF MRS. PICKARD. IMPRESSIVE FUNERAL AT THIRLMERE. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924

DEATH OF MRS. PICKARD. ? i IMPRESSIVE FUNERAL AT THIRLMERE. There was widespread regret throughout the district on Saturday last when the sad news was received that Mrs. Anne England Pickard, wife of Mr. Charles Henry Pickard (formerly governing director of Pickard's, Ltd.|) had died suddenly at Collaroy that morning. Although not in robust health for some timel nast. the dceased ladv had been on a visit to Bowral only a couple of weeks previously, and was then look ing exceptionally well, so that the tidings of her death came as a shock to her wide circle of friends, by whom she was held in the greatest esteem. Born in Northam, Devon, the late Mrs. Pickard arrived in Sydney with her husbaiid in 1883, and after spending three years in Wellington and Dubbo districts, removed to Thirlmere, and resided there from 1886 to 1916. .

No title [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924

IN. a striking article, the Sydney Morning Herald contrasts the sail ing -of Drake on the first world voy age and the journey of the British Squadron under Admiral Field. How great a volume of history lies be tween those two events — how roman tic a story of the growth pnd de velopment of our own nation and our own peonle. From that little Island in the North Sea, which men call England, has grown two great congeries of nations — the one an Empire divided by great seas — the other, speaking still the mother tongue, no less an Empire because the great States which com prise it know no natural divisions. There is much to inspire us in the contrast between the historic events. Who, in face of the achievements of those centuries, can look to the fu ture without hope? The doleful pes simists with whom our land is so heavily burdened should read some of the history that lies between them. It would make them better' citizens and more cheerful compan ions. j One lesson Australia is slow to ...

THE NEW TURKEY. MODERN GOVERNMENT OF TEE OTTOMAN EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924

THE NEW TURKEY. MODERN GOVERNMENT OF THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE. It will be a long time before the world realises, all the changes which the war has made. Some of them will be so far-reaching that another generation may pass before their re sults will be fully seen. Take Tur key, for instance. In the course of his lecture on 'The New Turkey,' before the Ox ford Union Asiatic Society, at Ox ford, Yusuf Kemal Bey, the Turkish diplomatic representative in London, said there was now a new Turkey, quite different from the old. Since April, 1920, the people of Turkey had governed themselves by means of the Grand National Asgem-- bly — a single chamber which enjoyed both the executive and the legisla tive power. The Assembly exercised the legis lative power directly, but delegated its executive power to mandatory ministers (Vekils), who acted in its name and were under its control and responsible to it for their ac tions (says London 'Times.'). The Turkey of to-day was one of the countries where t...

"NATION OF CRIMINALS." (Published by Arrangement) [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924

'NATION OF CRIMINALS.' (Published by Arrangement) Mr. H. A. Wise, formerly United States District Attorney, in a state ment to the New York 'Tribune,' declared that after close observation of the Prohibition law for the last five years the only accomplishment that it could actually claim was that it made a 'nation of criminals,' and that it constituted a complete prosti tution of American citizens. That's one side of it. The finan cial side is shown in the London 'Evening News.' 'Enforcement of Prohibition,' says the 'News,' 'in the United States this year has cost, it is stated, £16,400,000.'

MANUFACTURING NEWS. PATHETIC STORY OF A BABY THAT NEVER EXISTED. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924

MANUFACTURING NEWS. PATHETIC STORY OF A BABY THAT NEVER EXISTED. It is not often that a prominent! journalist gives himself away as Cap tain Wilson, formerly of the London 'Sunday Times,' is said to have done. The 'New York Evening Post' thus quotes him: — 'A correspondent of the London 'Daily Mail.' Captain Wilson, found himself at Brussels at the time the war broke out. They telegraphed out they wanted stories of atrocities,' he said. 'Well, there weren't any atro cities. So they telegraphed out they wanted stories of refugees. j ' 'So I said to myself, 'That's fine; I won't have to move.' | ' 'There was a little town outside Brussels where one went to get din ner; a very good dinner, too. I heard the Hun had been there. I supposed there must have been a baby there. So I wrote a heartrending story about the baby of Courbeck-Loo be ing rescued from the Hun in the light of the burning homesteads. ' 'The next day they telegraphed to me to send the bsby along, as they had about 5000 l...

INTELLIGENT BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924

INTELLIGENT BIRDS. Remarkable intelligence is attri buted to the beautiful rainbow-bird (or bee-eaters) in this note from a friend in Queensland: — 'While I j would not go so far as to say that the bee-eater deliberately times its breeding operations so that the young will have left the nesting tunnel by the time the wet season sets in, it would appear, according to my own observations, that the bird is guided by some instinctive knowledge in se lecting localities in which there would be comparatively little danger of be ing flooded out under ordinary cir cumstances before nesting had been concluded. For instance, in my own locality I have noticed over an ex tended. period that the beautiful bird is always finished with housekeeping matters by Christmas at latest. I mentioned to you before the hardship the birds suffer when overtaken by heavy, soaking rains during the nest ing period. On such occasions I have known them rake out their eggs and leave them in the sun at the entrance t...

LIGHT BUOY DRIFTS 8000 MILES. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 11 April 1924

LIGHT BUOY DRIFTS 8000 MILES. A rather remarkable ocean drift of a derelict light buoy is reported from Fremantle. On July 3, 1918, a special floating light buoy, constructed of steel, with super-imposed steel frame yrork, broke adrift from its moorings off Cape Indis, River Plate, South America. This buoy is identical with a buoy that was recently found stranded on the coast of Western Australia, 100 miles north of Fremantle. Over 12 months ago the master of the steamship Poona reported hav ing passed a derelict buoy in the In dian Ocean, the description of which agrees with that found on the West Coast. The Trinity House authorities were advised of the discovery, and pro vided with a deGi'siiuion of the buoy. This was circulated to foreign Go vernments, and the identity of the buoy determined. The buoy, which is in very good condition, assuming that it followed the shortest and most direct route, covered 8500 miles. Though buffet ed, the lighting apparatus is still intact.
