The FRIENDLY ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939

[?] & iR®AD Bii John Omifn. i REAL THINGS: At the end of the year most people are given to reflection. They think through the days that lie behind them, to en joy again the things which pleased them most and to correct mis takes of judgment, as far as that Is possible. ? It Is good at such times to make a mental estimate of those things which experience has stamped with the hall mark of reality. Lots of things we have done and thought can only be re garded as lumber, superfluous to a degree, and entirely unnecessary in any scheme of all-round and satisfact ory existence. Now is the time to burn the rubbish, ? to get rid of useless Ideas and scuttle such ways of life as rot and rust the mental framework of an otherwise healthy mind. Just as rubbish accumulates through the years, which one hesitates to burn lest some day a use may be found for it, although on examination its space is more valuable than its pres ence, bo with many things we pre serve, our hurts, our mistakes, o...

What of the New Year ? [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939

What of the New Year? ^HE close of the year 1939 brings men face to face with an international situation of unprecedented gravity. At the beginning of the year we had good reason to fear that before its close we would be embroiled in war with other nations; and the year closes with our fears realised. War in these days means much widespread strife, and such terrific carnage, and such awful destruction of property that when it becomes more than a struggle between two com paratively small nations we have every reason for deep con cern as to its issues. Anyone who can give to anxious people in times like the present a definite reason for hopefulness and an inspiration to earnest and loyal service of our nation, of humanity at large, and of the Ruler of men and nations renders an invaluable ser vice. In our King we have a man who is not ashamed to show his confidence in the God Whom he reverences, and his utter ances from time to time in critical periods are heard with re spect. In his ...

BLACKS FIGHT Clashes in Arnhem Land SEVERAL KILLED DARWIN, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 30 December 1939

BLACKS FIGHT Clashes in Arnhem Land SEVERAL KILLED DARWIN, Saturday. Several aborigines have been speared to death in fighting amongst tribes on the Arnhem Land coast near Goulburn Island, 230 miles from Darwin. Further outbreaks of fighting are feared. The number of victims is not known in Darwin, but a report from the Goulburn Island Mission stated that they were all old men, and had considerable influence among the warring aborigines. Fearing that relatives of the in- jured men might make reprisals and cause more casualties, the mission appealed to the Government to inter- vene, and the natives agreed to a truce until tile Government's inten- tion was known. When the news reached Darwin the patrol vessel Kuru left at full speed for the island. The Kuru is carrying Constable John Stokes, who a year ago was stationed at Elcho Island nearby. He knows the habits and dialects of some of the coastal tribes. Constable Stokes should reach Goulburn Island to-night and return to Darwin to-...
