Where the Dark Men Live. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 19 December 1919

Where the. Park Men lave. Some distance west of Oodnadatta is Afghan town, a cluster of galvan ized iron buildings where a score or more of this dusky and warlike tribe reside. But whether from discretion or lack of the fighting spirit they arc generally quietly disposed. Some are middle-aged, while others are genial, grey-haired old fellows in whom one would think nothing primitive ever existed. But they need watching nevertheless. The man who has lived long among the natives of Australia or any other dark races realizes that firmness with kindness-never mis placed, for that is fatal-is ever neces sary. A bushman prefers his black boy to walk or ride in front of him. The lust for blood, the desire to kill, may recur at any moment, and it is better to take no chances. Long strings of camels and the great packs ready for loading surround the little settlement and from time to time one will see these "ships of the out-back moving off with a peculiar air of certi tude and dignity, the ...

It is a long-, long way to Tipperary all right. The end of the Great Northern line and the distribut ing centre for thousands of square miles that lay ibeyond in the regions of .the never never, we might conjure in our minds a hard, dry, dusty plain with a pub, a store, and a building with pretensions to a police station. Such false impressions are quickly dis pelled should indeed we fall into the error of forming them. True, the site of the town is hard and dry, but there are many little oases. Hardly a house or building but has its little garden plot, its well kept lawn of refreshingly green grass, or its pleasantly shading trees. The artesian bore which stands about a quarter of a mile sou'-west of the town makes this possible. Stand ing on the fringe of the great back country, Oodnadatta is ind...
