CHRISTMAS AT DIRK HARTOG ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 6 January 1906
CHRISTMAS AT DIRK HARTOG ISLAND. BY BOHEMIAN. In one's rambling through the vast con tinent of Australia nothing impresses the Bohemian spirit so much as the uniform kindness that is to be met with in parts isolated from what are known as the civilized centres. It is not too much to say, that if civilization can for a moment be interpreted to mean much that con tributes to one's pleasure in this life, then I affirm that civilization in its truest mean ing can be found in places where the wild fowl abounds, and the ocean dashes its ever-lastingtideon the far off but hospitable shores of the North, and one cannot pen the name of the shore, the name of a place, without remembering the hospitable bouse situated on the shores of Sharks Bay, where resides the ever generous host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. Mead. It was my good fortune to be included in the house party at Dirk H&rtog house. The party consisted of several genial sports, most of whom had gathered a fair harvest of exper...

LOVE'S YOUNG DREAM. PERTH, January 10. Last evening shortly before the. R.M.S.

The Northern Times. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS, SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 1906. HORTICULTURAL POSSIBILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 13 January 1906
The $Lavt1jzttt ®iin:eg. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS, SATUBDAY, JANUARY 13, 1906. HORTICULTURAL POSSI BILITIES. TAKEN all round, the climate of Car- j narvon is probably the best to be found on the State's coast line. For a short period in the summer, per- 1 tainly, the thermometer records greater heat than is pleasant, but, on the other hand, the winter months are incom parable, the pleasantly warm days being set off by the cold nights. The fact of our winter months being so much warmer than more southerly latitudes is the cause of garden pro duce of all descriptions maturing much earlier here than in the South, and this feature of the climate opens up vistas of possibilities with regard to horticulture. In August last we were shown a sheaf of wheat five feet high? #nd in fall ear, which had just been cut at 3T$nkee Town. Admitting that the shortness of thp season and its dryness militate against wheat; culture on any considerable scale, the sample afforded conclusive eviden...
