THE WONDERFUL HOUSE WE LIVE IN, AND OUR PLACE IN THE WORLD The Story of Life v " THE HISTORY OF ANIMALS . . The backbone is Nature's stamp of Merit. The backboned creatures are called Vertebrates; those without backbones— Invertebrates. The first of the various kinds of backboned animals were fishes. Their backbones are the principal part of 'what are called their skeletons: and this skeleton, inside their body, is covered with soft parts like muscle and skin. This fact, the possession of a skeleton inside the body, built up around the backbone, is true of all backboned animals. But we must not confuse the fishes with animals like the whale, which is a newcomer, compared^to the £sh; nor must we think that 'all animals found in the sea are- fishes. Some of these animals have existed ages and ages longer in the sea than aay fish. They have no backbones, no hints of a brain, and are as inferior to a fish as the fish is to a cow. For instance, a crab is not a fish though it lives in the...

CUSTOMS AGENTS FIGHTING SMUGGLERS TO END LARGE SCALE OPERATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 11 February 1949

CUSTOMS AGENTS FIGHTING SMUGGLERS TO END LARGE SCALE OPERATIONS TWO-WAY tmuggling between Australia and the Far East last year was on such a large scale that Customs officials believe Chinere crews are merely "running'' for well-organised gangs which can bear the losses involved in the seizures. Cigarettes coming in to the value of £8000 were seized as well as outgoing sugar which would have brought £40,000 in the East, and shipboard caches are discovered so regularly that it is a wonder the smugglers still persist. The very fact that they do per sist suggests that somewhere, some how, thoy are sneaking contraband through the Customs cordon In Eufflcient quantities to offset their heavy losses and earn big profits. Tlio losses through seizure, especially of cigarcttes, Iiuvc been too heavy for 5nmll ({roups of Chinese seamen to stand.

It is so easy to mistake the cry of indigestiou for tlie cry of hunger. Even the small est stomach requires throe or four liours to digest its contents, and unless the baby is fed «t regular intervals, in digestion, accompanied by ]>ainfui flatulence, will result. DON'T continue to breast-feed baby uffer 0 or 10 months old, unless ad vised by your doctor or clinic sister for some special reason. Baby at this age should be having more solid foods to teach liim to use his laws, and should also be learning to driuk a cow's mi 1 If mixture from a cup. DON'T let baby sleep with you in bed. It is much healthier and safei for him to sleep in n cot by himself. DON'T overclothc your child when the weather begins to turn cold.
