BUFFALO FLY RESTRICTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

BUFFALO FLY RESTRICTIONS Information has been received from Canberra that the Hon. the Minister for the Interior has ap proved of tho forty per cent, re bate to be continued on pastoral lease rentals affected by the buft'ado (ly restrictions until 30th June, 1948. This rebate was first granted to lessees in areas infected with the buft'ado fly when the Queens land Government, in an endeavour to prevent the spread of the pest in that State, laid down restric tions on the free movement of cattle from affected areas and in stituted stringent dipping and quarantine regulations. Under these regulations, stock , from affected areas in the Terri tory could only enter Queensland along certain routes, and had to I proceed immediately to either Kajabbi or C4illiat to be sprayed and were then trucked away from the quarantine areas. This impbsed considei'able hardship on the affected lessees, and the Government has recog nised this by granting a rebate on rentals each year since the re strictio...

LOST EXPLORER RETURNED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

LOST EXPLORER RETURNED In our last issue we mentioned about a man going out into the never-never, and the fact that he had not returned, and that ve were anxiousj about him. By mail this week we received a letter from Mr. Roy Brown, who advises us that Mr. Prince (we said Price) had returned from' that outback place arid was ft very sick man. He had, like the other presumably Lassetter, drank also from a poisoned soak. Just whether the abos of that region decide that this is a plea-. sant way of retarding immigra tion to those parts or not, is wot known, but the fact that others venturing towards that area, 'and not even going that far, have also reported illness from the same cause, leads one to think serious ly of just what the reason may be. It is not natural that abos would poison a soak, because they would know that once poisoned the danger would always ' be there. Possibly at may be some mineral of arsenical nature polluting that water. The abos, from times of past decades, wo...

For the Children MOONGI, THE MONK [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

For the Children MOONGI, THE MONK BY JULIA ANNE Once upon a time there lived in Africa a monkey whose ,name was Moongi. Why ? Nobody knew. He lived right at the top of a coconut tree where he had a good view of the surrounding jungle. One day he saw in the distance a party of explorers winding their way through the trees. Now Moongi, like all other monkeys, was curious, so when the men made camp under his tree he came down to investigate. The hunters said he was a nuisance, and shooed him away. That night as Moongi sat in his tree watching the sleeping men who showed up dimly on the edge of the circle of light made by the camp fires, he noticed a movement in one of the shadows. Then he saw two green eyes peering out of the bushes. The lion, for that is what it was, crept right round the circle of light till be was just under Moon gi's tree. The monkey saw that ! he .was going to jump on one [ of the sleeping men, so he j picked up a coconut and dropped it on the lion's head, chatter...

MIXED CATTLE YARDING Chopper Cows Cheaper [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

MIXED CATTLE YARDING Chopper Cows Cheaper Monday's cattle yarding totalled i,°48, an increase of 105 on the previous week's total, and values of useful trade cattle and young store cattle were firmly main tained. Chopper cows and plain station cows in only killable order : were decidedly easier, although values fluctuated. The yarding was very mixed but included some good quality me dium and heavyweight bullocks, although steers in forward store to useful condition predominated. Graziers competed for young well bred forward store cattle, and values for this class were equal to recent rates. Central Australia was repres ented by 545 head of cattle for this market, ,- ,*

THE BIG FIGHT McVEA PUNISHED [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

THE BIG FIGHT IMcVE/t PUNISHED 1JY THE WANDERER A further addition to our box ing stories that provide entei* tainment, even if not good fight ing, was staged at the small town of Mitchell on the South-West line in Queensland, and situated on the Maranoa. Two first class coloured boxers from America were imported to fight all comers and were so evenly matched that very often they were engaged to fight one another with very even results. However, to &Gt a change and with the idea of seeing Austra lia before they returned to Ameri ca, they toured dilFerent railway lines giving exhibition bouts at which they did rather well from n financial outlook. Tn this case it was McVea, a big burly negro, with the great est sense of humor and a natural actor, some of which, by the way, he used to good eiVect in some of his sensational bouts in the city. McVea was billed to give an exhibition in the local hall* and asked that any coiner that cared to have a friendly bout would be welcome o...

RE ALICE SPRINGS We have had the pleasure of receiving a complimentary edition of a volume entitled 'This Town   Named Stuart, Now Alice Springs', from Mrs. A. V. Purvis, of Woodgreen Station, via Alice Springs. It is most interesting and the facts contained therein are well marshalled and convincing.

Thank you, Mrs. Purvis, we shall treasure this copy to con found our sceptics.

PERSONAL [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

PERSONAL Mr. N. Robinson, Superintend— ant of the Locomotive Branch, Commonwealth Railways, spent last week in Alice Springs on an inspection tour. He left for Port Augusta by passenger train on August 11. Mrs. Al. McDonald and small son, of Tennant Creek, paid us a visit this week. Mrs. McDonald is here for a few days' holiday, but, unfortunately, will be leaving before our race meeting com- mences. Our visitor gave us   some very interesting news about our paper, inasmuch as it is being   sent all the way to Rhodesia, South Africa, regularly, and that it is well read over there. It is good news for our staff to know that the paper is circulating so widely. Miss N. Richardson, who hails from Western Australia, and is a, member of the 'Western Mail' newspaper staff, is visiting Alice Springs during her holiday tour of the North. She came down by road from Darwin with Mr. and   Mrs. Flynn, and will be com-   mencing her journey home...

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 16 August 1947

Women's Column CUP OF TEA CHAT BY SUE Hello friends! I feel that if I venture to write of any subject other than the 'Miss Australia Quest', Daphne' Campbell and the ll.S.S. & A.I.L.A. campaign you will promptly turn ' the page on Sue ! The Editor was good enough to give me some details, but as they are all printed elsewhere in this issue there is no point in my repeating them. I am sure you all join me in congratulating the local sub-branch on the thought, or perhaps you will get together over the tea cups and see what plans you can devise to assist the campaign. For myself I would like to say 'Good luck, Daphne !' A matter I have often- wondered about — those red letcr-boxes. The P.O., as you know, is on the rail way side of the town. Two pillar boxes are 'strategically' placed but I have not seen a notice in any of the business places near those posting boxes to say that any of them are 'licensed to sell postage stamps.' Perhaps stamps are sold; maybe a license is not nec...
