Passr-ugcrs by the Great Western ex press ,on its westerly journey, vz.n wcxe up early on Sunday morning in anticipation of breakfast, were met by a gruesome :-ight when th» train drew op at a siding twenty miles west oT i.'arr.iha. They looked out of the .coach window, and saw three or four huts of a settlers' camp, and a tree up on a limb of which hung the body of & man suspended by a rope round the neck. The train remained at the spot for the allotted space of time,. and when it left the body was still hanging. li was about 7 o'clock in the morning, and apparently no one had thought ot cutting the body down.

YACHTING A RACE OF THRILLS GAIETY'S THIRD VICTORY [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
YACHTING A RACE OF THRILLS GAIETY'S THIBD VICTOBT (By 'Thin End.') The race for the Bell and Co. trophy, on Sunday, may be placed on record as one of the finest of the scaron. The close spacing at the finish was a fitting termination of a contest full of thrills and interest, not so much for the battle for supremacy, as the struggle to avoid being last, which was as good as the ight for first place. Throughout the issue was in doubt, and it was only tha fine' sailing of Gaiety in the final and all-important round, and the falling off in the standard of Co-Be Ts exhibition, that prevented a more exciting finish. Prior to the start the wind, which in the morning gave indication of being light seemed undecided what to do. - Even at 2.30 skippers held that hag gard expression which is more usual on a championship day.

THE PROMENADE JETTY CONDITION OF SEATS (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
THE PROMENADE JETTY CONDITION OF SEATS (To the Editor) Sir, — As many of the festivities In connection, with Geraldton Week will j take place at the promenade jetty, the Municipal Council should see that the I structure is made a little less unsafe] than it is at present. The council, has, of course, given notice of its intention to relieve itself of the responsibility for maintaining the jetty, but as -the no tice* has not expired, it is still, surely, bound to see that the jetty is at least. not 'positively dangerous. There arc a few substantial seats on this popular promenade, but there are several that would collapse if more than a little pres sure were put upon them. If the coun cil cannot make these seats safe, for peo ple to sit upon, it should remove them, from the jetty,, as. at present they arc worse than ueeless— they are dangerous. — Yours, etc, . — VISITOR Geraldton, January 15. ,
DRAINING AN ITALIAN LAKE SEARCH FOR ANCIENT SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
DRAINING AN ITALIAN LAKE 0 SEABCH TOE ANCIENT SHOPS. Signor Mussolini, by pressing a but ton, started the high-power pumps ?which are to drain Lake Nenii, on the Alban Hills, in order to recover two ships which the Emperor Tiberius used as a summer residence. The water flows through an under ground channel built by the Komans, , and now completely restored. Every day 120,000 cubic metres will be pump ed) lowering the level * of the lake :«- inches every 20 days. It is believed that a discovery of im mense archaeological and artistic inter ' est will amply repay the heavy expense of draining the lake. it The ships will be restored and re ? floated when the lake has been refilled, acting as a floating museum, which will attract thousands of visitors.

PUSHING BACK THE YEARS. * ? « ? . ANIMAL ORGANS TO CURE HUMAN DEFECTS. , Dr. Serge Voronofl's monkey-gland experiments have led to the startling discovery that apparently it is pos sible to transplant all the vital or gans of a chimpanzee to human be ings. ?*1 am using four difierent glands from every chimpanzee received from Afrira, notably thyroid glands for weak-minded children and interstitial glands for the ? rejuvenation of the aged,' said Dr. Voronoff, recently. 'All chimpanzee glands which I have transplanted have thrived so well in the human body that I have tried lesser organs, which also are thriving w.ell. I am experimenting now on major organs, and I expect to announce soon that a man may have any new organ he desires. 'The chimpanzee is the only spe cies of the monkey that can be used, it tcing wonderfully like a human being. The organs are identical and the bloods are indistinguishable. Chimpanzess now cost more than £100 each.' Dr. VoronoH himself bears the en tire c...
ANIMALS THAT AREN'T. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
ANIMALS THAT AREN'T. - w When a miner refers to his ''dog' he is .talking of the metal appliance used to fasten down the tram-lines en which the coal tubs travel. 'Cat' is the name he gives to the lump of day which he U6es to ram home an explosive charge for blasting. Bad coal is known as 'crows' by English miners, while Scottish mincrr. call it 'parrots.' Where the coal has an iridescent glow, it is called 'peacocks.' Sometimes the miner alights on a mass of stone in a seam of coal. This 'horse*1 must be blast rd away, and should the operation fail the result is a 'bull' ! Runaway tubs are stopped by an appliance called a 'goose.' while a 'rrab' is that part of the windlass which lowers the miner to his daily labour. Farth is known as 'cod,' nnd a part of the pump used to keep tbe mine free from water is termed a 'fish head.' In other occupations we come across animals that aren't animals. In Lancashire cotton factories there are 'mules.' On a steamer th-» winch is often referred t...
"ONE APPLE A DAY KEEPS—" [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
'ONE APPLE A DAY KEEPS—' Eat well, sleep veil, live well, and be happy by simply masticating on-- sound good apple per day ! Sounds strange, but it is a fact nevertheless. The acids of the apple, also, are'ol invaluable use for men of sedentary habits, whose livers are sluggish in action, these acids serving to elimi nate from the body the noxious mat ters which, if retained, would make the brain heavy and dull, or bring about jaundice, or skin eruptions, and other allied troubles. Some such experiences must have led to our custom of taking apple sauce with roast pork, rich goose, and like dishes. Furthermore, tbe apple contains a larger percentage of phosphorus than! any other fruit or vegetable. This phosphorus is admirably adapted for renaming the essential nervous mat ter of the brains and spine. A ripe, raw apple.- is one of the easiest vegetable substances for the stomach to deal with, the whole pro cess of digestion being completed in ubout eighty-five minutes. Further more, ...
"ALL THINGS MUST PASS." THERE IS ONLY ONE THING THAT LASTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 16 January 1929
'ALL THINGS MUST PASS.' ? v— ' ? THERE IB ONLY ONE THING THAT LASTS. There was once a man that tried to find something that would last for ever. He began by making a fortune. 'If I build a big bank balance,' he argued. 'I shall be quite secure.' But it did not work out that way. After making a thousand pounds, he lost it. Then he made another thousand pounds, and his back fail ed. Nothing daunted, he made an other thousand pounds, and this time he had better luck. It rose to naif a million. But, unfortunately, the more he made the more he needed. His habits once simple, grew expensive. He bought a motor-car and a yacht. He smashed the motor-car, and the yacht] was lost in a storm. And, at last, he had no money left. Then he started to think again. He recalled his rich friends. Many of them, too, had lost all their money. Others had died rich, but, after all, they had simply left all their money behind them for someone else to use and lose. Gradually it dawned upon him that money had...
