THE MOUND ON THE BEACH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 14 April 1921
THE MOUND ON THE BEACH. I saw two guileless children play \ On Coogee's drifting sands, A mother smiled with love and pride And clasped their yielding hands. I saw them sit upon the beach And heard their chatter free, I saw them build a stately mound Beside the swelling sea. It looked in miniature a grave I saw a woman's tears ; I overheard a . long-drawn sigh And read the^tále of years. I saw an anguished mother press Her fond* ones to her breast, 'I heard her hush their noisy glee, In broken words expressed. I saw her lead them from the spot, j I saw her gaze, on high ; j I heard the dirge of rushing waves, I heard the sea-birds cry. -M. C. O'H.

When, there- fore, any movement which aims at, and would have the effect of, reduc- ing this cost, particularly in connec- tion with an item the supply of which is at present a pernicious mon- opoly, is frustrated^ either by official red-tape or engineered self-interest, a heinous crime is committed against the public. Householders in Darwin have a vivid appreciation of the fact that though the Northern Territory is the home of beeí, so to speak, the retail price thereof in Darwin is ex- orbitantly high-in most cases, pro- hibitive. The Price Fixing Board arc no doubt above' suspicion, but in al- lowing od per lb. for beef it displayed a complete lack of acumen and an evident failure to make full investiga- tion. There is, or rather was, just a possibility of some relief coming to thc unfortunate consumers of Dai win in the shape of cheaper beef, but thanks to the ^cuss...
