SNAKES (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 8 December 1937

SNAKES (To the Editor). Sir.~-I am sorry that only one Shoalhaven bushman— 'Interested' — has come forward to give us his views re snakes swallowing their young. Let me recapitulate his experience. 1. He saw several very small snakes crawling in a certain direction. 2. He came upon a black snake which he killed, and which had sev eral similar young ones in it. This has given me an idea that I think is responsible for the supposi tion tnat snaKes swauow ineir young. The venomous snakes of Australia are viviparous with the exception of the brown snake; that is, they bring forth their young alive. Non-venomous snakes are, oviparous: that is, they lav eggs. May I suggest a case. Let us suopose a man has come across a snake giving: birth to a num ber of young ones. Some of them, as in the case described by 'Interested,' have crawled away from the mother, and then crawled back towards her. She, on being destroyed, is found to have a number of young snakes in her, ready to be born. Hence, ...

"THE AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL" [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 8 December 1937

'THE AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL' It is interesting to know that Aus tralia possesses one of the oldest established magazines in the Empire. There can be very few fiction maga zines older than 'The Australian Journal,' which was first published in Melbourne in 1865, and is still con ducted by the family of the founder. Although this publication is nearly 73 years old, a glance through the De cember issue indicates that it has kept well abreast of the times, both in matter* and manner of presenta tion. The current number contains over a dozen short stories by well known Australian and New Zealand writers, , well illustrated in color. Writers ireoresen ted include Arthur W. Upfield, Harriette Gordon, Rex Gray son, J. H. M. Abbott, Captain Ingram Morgan, and others well known in the field of popular fiction. In addition to stories, the Journal contains articles on cookery, radio, and topics of general interest. Despite the improvements, the price has never varied through the years: In 1937, as ...

JIM HENRY ON TOUR [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 8 December 1937

JIM HENRY ON TOUR Writing in the 'Live Stock Bulletin' under the heading of 'The Editor goes abroad, and writes a running . comment on what he sees and hears,' ? Mr. R. S. Maynard makes frequent references to Jim Henry, of Bolong, who was on the same boat. ? This is one of Mr. Maynard's: — the boatmen in Colombo Harbor. They are not-allowed on the ship, so they tie their boats up to whatever they can get hold of, and bawl their wares in staccato manner. They sell hats and wooden elephants and bangles and the like, and they do 'a. .great trade. One of the boats had some very fine book-ends in the shape of elephants, each end about the size of a child's head. I enquired the price. It was a pound. I got the man down by hard bargaining (tears on his part and a hard heart on mine) to 12/6, . and was about to succumb, when Jim Henry intervened. 'You mustn't give him 12/6,' Jim said. 'I wouldn't give him more than 3/-.' ' 'But, Jim,' I said, 'a man couldn't make them for 3/-. It would be r...

CATHOLIC FETE [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 8 December 1937

CATHOLIC FETE The hon. secretaries (Mrs. E. E. Walsh and Mrs. P. Daley), and all the ladies who interested themselves in the Fete, which took place at the Con vent School Hall on Tuesday after noon and evening last, have reason to feel highly flattered, seeing that the net receipts totalled over £160. It was a wonaeriui result— -a high tribute to the loyalty and generosity of the ad herents of the church, to the effi ciency of the organisers, and to the work of the stallholders. At 3 p.m. the Rev, Father Phelan, in calling on the Mayor (Dr. F. P. Ryan) to perform the official opening, thanked that gentleman, on behalf of the committee, the hon. secretaries, the stall holders, and the church people generally for making it con venient to attend, seeing that he was a very busy man. Dr. Ryan said he regarded it as an honor to be asked to perform the offi cial opening ceremony. He was very pleased to see such a good attend ance, which augured well for the suc cess of the function. That w...

BRILLIANT REVUE COMING DON, THE LITTLE DRUM MAJOR OF THE YOUNG AUSTRALIA LEAGUE [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 8 December 1937

BRILLIANT REVUE COMING DON, THE LITTLE DRUM MAJOR OF THE YOUNG AUSTRALIA LEAGUE When people think of the Young Australia League they think of the little boy in 'white' who conducts the band or orchestra on the stage, and leads the band through the streets. Tradition has brought this about, for every tour that a League band has made there has always been a miniature drum major; so to-day we look forward to seeing one of these immaculate little fellows come proud ly down the street swinging his mace. Of course the boys grow up, so the little 'boy in white' to-day is not the boy we saw in London, New York, or New Zealand some years ago, but just an equally charming little fellow carrying on where others left off. Don Dickie, or better known as ?Don the little Drum Major,' is the boy for the Eastern States. ' Although only 10 years, he possesses astounding ability. Music seems to come as second nature to this little lad, and his work as conductor of the band is fascinating and charming....

DO YOU LIKE POETRY ? HYMNS OF THE OLD CHURCH CHOIR [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 8 December 1937

DO YOU LIKE POETRY?; HYMNS OF THE OLD CHURCH CHOIR (BY 'FREELANCE'). 'The song that once I dreamed about, The tender, touching thing, As radiant as the rose without, The love of wind and wing, The perfect verses to the tune Of woodland music set, As beautiful as afternoon, Remain unwritten yet.' Most of us like poetry. Most of us have at one time or other tried our hand at writing it, and by and large, most of us have made a dismal failure of it, because we didn't understand the rules for writing poetry, or we lacked the inspiration. And most of us will continue to write what WE think is poetry, but which, at the best, js but a clumsy attempt to put our thoughts into rhythm that is simply the rhyming of words at the end of certain lines, while the feet of the lines gallop and trot, and pace and amble, and shuffle and walk in un dignified procession throughout our attempt, to produce a readable poem. So, unless you have studied prosody— the rules that guide us how to write poetry cor...

NATURE NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 8 December 1937

NATURE NOTES ? ? (Contributed). It Is a strange fact that during the past history of the. world, there have been ice ages in latitudes which are, at the present time, far removed from Arctic conditions. The signs by which geologists re cognise the former presence of glaciers and icebergs are very charac teristic, and they can be studied at the present day in the polar regions or in other localities where glaciers occur, suck, as in Switzerland and New ZealSta. When afpacier moves over a rocky surface, the stones which are held in the ice are pushed along the rock, and in the process make long scratches in the direction of movement. The stones, themselves, are also scratched. So that, when we find a rocky surface | with these peculiar markings, it is safe to assume that, at some time or other, a glacier was responsible. Ice- , bergs, which are fragments broken from glaciers when they enter the sea, also carry rocks and pebbles which have become embedded in the ice on its journey alon...
