BURGLARS, BEWARE! [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
BURGLARS, BEWARE! There ^s no doubt that burglaries have been on the increase lately. ! They are being committed nightly j and in great numbers ; and the only safeguard would seem to be an in- ; creased vigilance «sc the part of citi- ? zens. - ! Not only is it necessary to see that every door and window is secur- : ed at night, but it is jnst as well , that housekeepers should have some means of defence against wouW-1 * burelars. A Prencn inventor has recci.-.ij placed on the market a 'fake' pis tol. This weapon although in reality absolutely harmless, goes off with a very realistic crack when the trigger is pulled. It also makes a blinding flash calculated to scare any burn|or. Inventions of an 8Nen more iwi- ] plicated nature are constantly beias I heard of. A well-to-d* gentle*. a living in Surrey gas recen«y had his house and grounds filled with an elaborate burglar trap. With this device a midnight marauder cannot approach near the noose without set ting a number of «J«sctric ...

LAST WEEK'S SECRECY SIR HALL CAINE'S ATTACK London, January 12. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
LAST WEEK'S SECRECY SIR TTAT.T. CAINE'S ATTACK London, January 12. Sir Hall Caine, in an article in the ' ' Sunday Graphic, ' ' says : — 'The moral of the past week's mas querade is not that the Salvation Army is guarding against a dictatorship , in faith, but that it is worth £30,000,000. It would be better to its spiritual wel fare if, beyond the working expenses, it was never worth 30,000,000 farthings. Its chief executive has travelled the world like a prince, but it would have been better if, like Isaiah, he walked barefooted, through the streets - of his Jerusalem. 'I have little sympathy for the mise cn-scene of prayers, hymns, and . the slavering words of praise with which th« Council surrounded the demand for General Booth 's resignation, and I have only contempt for , the- ridiculous stage management of extinguished lights, the hurried entrance of messengers, and the employment of flashlamps and devices unworthy of the Elephant and Castle Theatre at its. worst.

BRITISH MOTORS DEMAND FROM DOMINIONS [?] UNPRECEDENTED BOOM London, Jan. 14. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
BRITISH MOTORS DEMAND FROM DOMINIONS ^fef UNPRECEDENTED BOOM London, Jan. 14. Australian, New Zealand, South Af rican and Indian orders amounting t» £1000,000 for bef ore-June delivery, an ? increase of £200,000 compared with the first half of last year combining with the home demand for 7-14 horse^powcr motor cars and also charabancs, create an uaprecendented boom in the British motor industry. The makers of three of the most pop lar light and 'baby' cars are.turning out 3,400 a week, estimated to1 represent 680,000 cars, considerably exceeding last year's record bef ore-Easter sales. Many other makers output are exceecr ing the previous best by 20 per cent. finch a rush of business in a usually dead season has caused big agents to curtail their winter's sporting in Switz erland. .

ABSENT-MINDED BEGGARS. WOOL-GATHERERS WHO FORGET LITTLE DETAILS LIKE CLOTHES TIME, AND PLACE. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
ABSENT-MINDED BEGGARS. ? w WOOL-GATHERERS WHO FORGET LITTLE DETAILS LIKE CLOTHES TIME, AND PLACE. Absent-mindedness with regard to dress has at times produced some very laughable episodes, for onlook ers at all events. Charles Monselet tells of a friend of his who lived in Bordeaux who was a very keen book-lover, and never missed a chance of buying -an? book on which his heart was set. One day a catalogue reached him by the morning post from a Paris book seller, and in it he saw the title oi a book, long out of print, he had been seeking for thirty years. Looking at the clock, he saw that he bad just time to catch the Parie express, and immediately setting; forth, he secured a place in the train. Arrived at the French capital, he se cured the book he had so eagerly sought, and while wrapping it up tbe shopman abserved to him : 'I suppose you live in the street, monsieur ?' 'No, I have just come from Bor deaux,' was the reply. A look of intense astonishment spread over the worthy boo...
LONDON'S UNDERWORLD ORGANISATION TO HIDE FUGITIVES [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
LONDON'S UNDERWORLD ? ? -«» ? ORGANISATION TO HIDE FUGITIVES Many queer organisations exist in the underworld of London. — of which the general public know but little — for dealing with different types and clas- scs of criminals who are fugitives £rom justice or in the hands of the police. One of the most audacious, yet at the same time quiet, organisations is that which is conducted by an old 'lag,' a man with a long list of con victions to his credit, who lives in the neighbourhood of the New Cut, Lam beth. His 'union' was formed for and operates exclusively on behalf of men. who escape from gaol. Crooks who elude the vigilance of the wardera know that if they can get in toact with this man they will find money, clothes, and a safe lodging waiting on them. The work of the organisation is car ried oil by just a few men, and so long as the escaped man behaves himself, and does what he is told he ean lie hidden for as long as he cares. The Iiand of the organisation is always ag ainst...
CHRISTMAS IN BETHLEHEM PICTURESQUE CEREMONY PILGRIMAGE TO SITE OF THE HOLY MANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
CHRISTMAS IN BETHLE HEM PICTURESQUE CEREMONY PILGEIMAGE TO SITE OF THE HOLT MANGEE. Tourists and Christian pilgrims from as far afield as China and Japan joined recently in a picturesque cere monial around the grotto which, accor ding to tradition, served as the stable for the village hostel in which the Saviour was born 1928 years ago. A procession headed by the Latin Patriarch, with an escort of Palestine mounted police, and including hun dreds of clergy and natives in bright ly coloured robes, formed at mid-day in Jerusalem and proceeded from the Jaffa gate to Bethlehem. Many well dressed and well-to-do iiuropeans ac companied the throng, some as onlook ers and some as devout worshippers, at this annual glorification of the birth of Christ. The -weather was like that of the English spring — the sky was cloudless and the sun glinted on the jewels of the Patriarch's mitre and the accoutrements of the guard. The grotto itself was ablaze with a huge silver star and hundreds of twin k...

A CRICKETING CLAN ABLE TO FIELD FOUR TEAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 15 January 1929
A CRICKETING CLAN ABLE TO FIELD FOUR TEAMS. One of the cricket fixtures of the year on the Clarence (N.S.W.) is the match between the Ellem family and the Clarence River team. It is the po- pular annual event. All the Ellem clan are cricket enthusiasts. So numerous are they that they could put four &nbsp; teams in the field and provide their own umpires and scorers as well. This is claimed to be a record for the State and Commonwealth. Three of the Ellems are playing in first grade cricket in Sydney. For the annual match at South Grafton mem- bers of the family travel long dis- tances and invariably they are success- ful. On this occasion, however, they went down to the Clarence River Cricket Association team, the latter scoring 141, and the Ellem family 119. The Ellem family team consisted of Arthur, Stewart, Tom, Jack, Percy, Earle, Les, Henry, Vivian, Frank, Geo- don, and Victor (12th).

WHEAT HAULAGE RAILWAY RECORD: 513,000 BAGS IN A WEES. Perth, January 18. * Commenting yesterday upon the haul age of wheat, the Minister for Railways (Mr. J. C.

SALVATION ARMY » ? : ? THE GENERAL'S ATTITUDE 'WHY SHOULD I RESIGN?' (Continued from Page L) London, January, 15. The High Council of the Salvation Army adjourned without reaching a de cision after an all-day discussion on General Booth's reply to its request for his retirement. General Booth, in reply to the High Council's request, said he was compelled to refuse to re sign, for .he would, feel less than, a m&s, let alone a leader .of a great religious organisation, .if he agreed to .retire. 'Why should I retire!' he askei the Council, and he added: '1 am re sponsible before God for the well being of this great organisation to which I have devoted my life.'
