THE LITTLE BOREE AN ABORIGINAL CEREMONY [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 22 October 1928

THE LITTLE BOREE AN ABORIGINAL CEREMONY (By Hector Munro) I have never seen one of these cermonies, but they have been des cribed to me by Billy Robinson, whom I knew on' Bundooma in the early '70's, and with whom I spent a few days at Kimbombi so as to get first hand information of both Borees, as I knew that in the old days Billy 'had spent several years with the blacks as one of themselves. Billy told me that after the young men had passed the boy, or scout stage, and proved themselves experts as hunters, which, of course, included climbingg, tracking, making fire with fire sticks, throwing, standing out with a coore-merry (shield) and chut-ia (small stick) and warding off spears (small ones), stones, and sticks, and catching and cooking all sorts of game. They were then ready to go through the little Boree cere mony. A ring was made with a diameter of about 18ft., but accord ing to the number of candidates. It was shaped like a circus ring, and, considering their tools, it took ...

DEATH OF FATHER OF COLONEL FORD VETERAN OF MANY CAMPAIGNS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 22 October 1928

DEATH OF FATHER OF COLONEL FORD VETERAN OF MANY CAMPAIGNS With the death on Tuesday flight | of Mr. William Ford, at the age* of 93, there closed a life crowded with romantic adventures, which to-day number' amongst the outstanding in cidents of British history. His life story recalls famous mutinies and re bellions of the past, and reads more like a chapter from some fanciful novel. Few people could lay claim to such a wealth of reminiscences as Mr. Forjd, who was of ,a somewhat retir ing disposition, consequently little was known publicly of the remarkable series of exploits in which he had figured in his youth as a sailor in the Royal Navy. Fate robbed him of his parents early in life, his mother .dying shortly after his birth, while his lather was killed in a naval encounter at Amoy (China) a few years afterwards. Siezed with a spirit of adventure he entered the Greenvvhich Naval School before he ha,d: reached his teens, and was. 'a mere lad when he joined the service of the Bri...

MELDRUM'S BULL [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 22 October 1928

MELDRUM'S BULL i 'Shows,' said' the veteran, as we watched the parade of cattle, 'ain't ^ what they used to be. Did you ever hear of the Blumbagga show when Meldrum exhibited the bull sold to him by Grogan? Well, Grognn bred prize cattle. Meldrum lived about 39 miles from him, and was some sort of a relation. When Grogan told Meldrum he had some stud bulls for sale and would sell them cheap, Meldrum sent a man over with a cheque. The bull the man brought back wks a slab sided runt, wrong in color and wrong all over. Instead of being worth the £25 paid for it, it was hardly worth 25 pence. 'Meldrum swore hard when he saw the dirty trick GrogE:'n had played him. He wrote immediately asking for his money back, when he would return the bull. Grogan replied that the bull was a good one. 'This Meldrum was a tough cus tomer. He waited until the Bliim bagga show was held, and entered the bull he had {ought from Grogan. Usually Grogan carried off most of the prizes, because the stock he bred...

Stale bread is excellent for clean ing light-colored suede gloves. * * » When you buy steak to make a pie, get a piece of ox kidney at the same time, cut it up, and put it into the pie.

LIKE THE FLAMES OF HELL THE MERRY DANCERS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 22 October 1928

im THE FLAMES OF Mr THE MERRY £-ANCERS | A beautiful display of the Aurora - Australis, which lasted for over two hours, was observed from Gundagai on Thursday evening last, and pre- j sented a splendid spectacle in the I Southern sky cFespifce the crescent i moon. 'Just like the fires of hell,' said a Gundagai lady, viewing the Aurora Although the dominant color in auroral displays is usually, the green, the feature of Thursday night's phen omenon was the rosy hue which col ored the sky to about 60 degrees in atitude and from the east-south-east to the south-west. The phenomenon was remarkable, for the brightness shown in the red portion of the spectrum and there was also marked Jbrightness in the blue portion. LTsually, the green portion is the most pronounced in observations. Unfortunately the moonlight, militat ed somewhat against the observation, [ but the display; was the 'brightest I seen for some time and was more ' pronounced' than 'the fine, display, ' which had been seen ...

A RACING SONATA [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 22 October 1928

A RACING SONATA By a Mug: — ('Gunner') j ; Dr. W. H. Lang, in his book, 'Racehorses in Australia,' a book which all people interested in the thoroughbred should read and 'study carefully, argues at length as to wether Carbine or The Barb was the best horse ever bred 'in Australia. He comes to the conclusion, reluc tantly. I feel sure that The Barb was the better horse, and also prob ably the better looking of the two; but he concludes the cha peter with these words: — 'Yet I fancy I know well what the verdict of posterity will be. When a statue of Carbine has 'been erect ed in Olympia future generations will read in large letters in its plinth, 'C.O.M.,' an,d, archaelogists of a later age 'will interpret this to mean, 'Car bine, optimus, maximus.' ' Of Carbine's stamina there has never been any doubt. He had, as Dr. Lang quotes, 'a loin and a back that would carry a house, and quar ters to lift you slap over the town.' To quote Dr. Lang further: 'His Tiarrel was all that it ought to...

NOTES FROM THE CITY [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 22 October 1928

NOTES FROM THE GITY The Country Pressmen met in Lig numbers in Sydney last week, — men came from the northern border to the Murray; from the coast to far away Broken Hill. On the opening day four Ministers of the Orown, headed by Premier Bavin, took the Conference by storm, an,d the two men chosen to move the vote of thanks to him used to play marbles together, over 40 years ago — Sullivan of Gundagai, and Smith, of Bega. ? ? ? The Conference was one of the most business-like in the history of the Country Press. All the delegates settled 'down earnestly to work, and accomplished much. Tom Shakes peare, after 25 years as 'boss of the show,' handed in his papers — he is suffering from ill-health, and his .doc tors have told him to 'get out, or go under.' So he will hie to Canberra, after a while, and spend the autumn of his life, moulding National opin ion by means of the .paper he has there, and growing pickling onions. Mr. Shakespeare was banquetted on one Conference night, and he i...
