A glance through the estimates is a revealing experience even to these the have kept in touch with the salaries list of the civil service during recent years. The �1,000 a year mail once regarded As a Giddy Peak of achievement has been scaled now by at least 17 officers and there is a fair contingent coming up quickly in the rear. No wonder compliments have been paid from both tides of parliament to the Barwell government for its generous treatment of the service. It is interesting to give the Little list leaving out the judiciary chief railways commissioner �5.000. President of Industrial court �1.700. Deputy president Industrial court �1,200.

It is rumoured that the labour party will nominate Only two members and that the Farmers and settlers association will confine its attention to or. Mills. This will make the running rather interesting in View of the previous voting in the Northern District. Clever Young Adelaide actor. Some highly complimentary press notices have come to hand of the work of a Young Adelaide actor or. Claude Saunders who is with the Allan Wilkie shakespearean company. He is Only 23 years of age. And is a Eon of mrs. F. C. Saunders who now resides in Melbourne. A South Street Champion in elocution with a Good presence voice of excellent timbre and Fine deportment or. Saunders gives Promise of going far in the realm of the footlights. He has been about a year on the professional stage. The Melbourne Argus writes of his villain Edmund in King Lear an outstanding Success of the evening was the acting of or. Claude another critic said or. Saunders is a most notable addition to the company and or. Wilkie must consider himself very Lucky indeed to secure such a Clever actor and concerning those it seems a pity to spoil Good fiction but some of the red has to be taken out of the melodramatic interview which miss Lily Butler Mother of blighty is reported to have Given to a reporter of the London weekly despatch about our poor Black Brothers the cutting sent out by or. Ernest Tolley who is touring England reveals a Fine gift of imagination whether on the part of miss Butler or the Pressman it is not possible to say 12,000 Miles away from the spot where the tragic plot was concocted. How thrillingly funny was the Story of the Mother of a lighter a generous dish indeed being so close to a tribe of cannibals who indulged in blood cuddling yells and of her horrible fear that she might figure on the menu. Ugh an Opportunity missed. Sir Sidney Kidman and or. And mrs. , of Macumba who were very kind to miss Butler in giving her every facility to see something of the big spaces must have been very surprised at what she says she. Saw and heard particularly at that station where two years before the natives had eaten the Cable of the terrible Black bolsheviks. Capt. White did not laugh when he read or. Tolley s newspaper extract. He was highly indignant knowing the Blacks and their ways so Well that miss Butler should have made such silly capital out of her experiences. Excellent was the Point made by capt. White that hundreds of others if they had had miss Butler s Opportunity could have presented a Fine. Descriptive account of the country which would have been a Good advertisement for this great Lone land of those who have observed the condition of the natives along the Telegraph line says capt. White Only smile at the absurd statements. But there Are Many thousands in England and even a Large number in Australia who do not know any better. The noted ornithologist was asked if during any of his trips into the Interior the Blacks had attempted to Cut a succulent fillet off him. Eating human flesh. It is All nonsense he protested to talk about White people being eaten by the natives at the Telegraph station. It has never been possible. In the very Early Days Blacks gave some trouble at isolated places. That was Only natural seeing that we invaded their country but they did not eat the Whites. 5evtain tribes in their wild state do eat human flesh at important ceremonials but this is not done for food. The native believes that by partaking of the flesh of a renowned Warrior either of their own tribe or that of an enemy who has been killed in Battle or has died from some other Means his prowess will enter their i asked capt White if he thought the Mother of blighty saw a wild Black at All and he replied that he was sure Ehe did not. What was More she was not within hundreds of Miles of such a rarity. The few remaining members of Arunita tribe to be found along the Tele graph line Are objects of pity a few filthy rags hanging to their bodies. They have Given up All their Strong beliefs handed Down for thousands of years and Are pitiable specimens of a once powerful race. Great sense of Humour. The australian Black has & great sense of Humour and capt. White has a notion that he was a chivalrous enough to pull the leg of the unsuspecting Mother of blighty. The regrettable feature of the whole business he laments is that these once Loving confiding and honest children of the Bush have been the subject of such tragic ridicule. Capt. White says they have had a rough time at the hands of the invading White people. We have treated them shockingly in the past. Do not let us malign them now in the eyes of the ignorant by publishing statements which have not the ghost of truth in notable citizens. The president of the Royal agricultural society or. Wallace Sandford. Exciting episodes. I am finding that old colonists yarns Are gathering the persistence of those of Flie fish category not in their fearful Exa. Aeration of course but in their Lively reminiscent mood. Recently mrs. Newbold the lock Leys Veteran wrote to me about or. Randall a very interesting budget of Early time stories inspired by his Breezy yachting chatter. Now or. Randall suffering from that contagious malady of that remind sir indulges in some Back talk far far Back to or. Newbold. I read tie Issue of the saturday journal of october 20 with greater interest than u6ual," writes or. Randall because of the references to one Yam brings up another. I Tang up your correspondent my.

A whale i a whale i was sent Home for a Supply of ammunition and father bolted for the Village. To Rouse out members of his Volunteer company. Eight or nine of us assembled at the deity Ewul took the Hythe kneeling position and at the word of command let Fly a Volley at the whale about 1001 Yards Distant some bullets went Home others missed. A Rush was made for the whaleboat and we scrambled in with old Matthew Elliott at the big steering oar. Off we went the whale had do appeared. About half a mile along the sea Bottom changed Colour Andna moved beneath us., � the Quarry beached just a few Yards ahead. A Hasty Volley followed and there was a turmoil of Spray. This was too much for the valiant Crew. The sequel. 3 i t h Aroy few the big oar Matthew sheered round and he made Tor the land at top Speed. Some weeks iter a whale went ashore at North Shields near to port Lincoln bearing wounds like Bulle Marks. The result was it was fully believed to be the effect of our it pm 1 to. Edward Little a member of the Little family mentioned m the Yan Kalilla yarns wrote a thrilling account of the affair in the Register at the time.

Traditions we have hardly a brain Wisdom helps us not at All r we Are seeking the intangible Way of the Ideal that is beyond Ordinary reasoning Power. Every age too brings its own assemblage of wonders and science continues the quest of the unknown. The Twenty pal Century is a god like period for Man has harnessed the Earth the air the sea and h led that Earth with a Racu i 0us i Oljace bag been annihilated an l we m Var by far to Sti 1 greater ? self expression. Life in that is when it truly expresses creation. To find god in future and qty in human lives is. Gurel the ii Neldi l5 ques t. While we be c of or stagnation is mental and j 8piritua death.

But the evil things of life Are sometimes the great necessities of life for Thev bring out also the contrasting Powers of nobility with which to combat them.

Thus the finest qualities in Man respond to the Call of posterity rather than to the world s applause. So we go Ever Forward pilgrims of the unknown journeying whither and because there is a sorrow deeper than tears and a happiness beyond laughter we realize that life s outer Shell continues the Riddle. For to know great pleasure we must have All suffer cd greatly too and out of darkest night the Pearly Dawn is born. Not for us to answer this query.

Animals and fortunes the finding of a Small piece of Gold in a dog s Paw responsible for a recent Gold Rush in Alaska recalls other instances of animals pointing out the path to Prosperity to their owners. Some years ago a Bov in Australia was trapping rabbits and his dog scratching at a Hole exposed a of Vellow Isu Rock. The boy who knew the country to be Gold bearing told his that he _ i l i father however Pooh poohed the , j but when to go to at last the found boy -j.i.

The Man was setting his trips one Day j when his hand encountered something i hard in the Earth out by the 1 animals in their borrowings. Closer in j vesti gation revealed a number of sapphires. To Day the trapper is a Rich Man. In Africa a Small Diamond find was once made by a Man who discovered a Diamond in the Gizzard of a Goose and i explored All its feeding places till he found the valuable one. Wireless for the Stener in. O Wavelet resend lengths. By condenser. All who have taken an interest in wireless experimenting have Conio across terms wave metres and wave Ink the most have ave a Ide Tuua Ofui what us u119thin Means and a simple explanation will be acceptable. To most Young amateurs Mcvery one knows what happens when Peoble. I i is _ dropped. I in a Pond. I them. Pebble causes a Ripple of Waves which travel out towards the Edge of the Pond. In much the same Way wireless Waves Are sent out by the transmitting station but while the Waves in the Pond Are of a very limited length wireless Waves have a length of from 400 Yards to eight or 10 Miles. In wireless language the length of the Ware is spoken of Aseo Many metres which is the French unit of measurement. The transmitting Amateur stations in this state Are operating mostly on a wave length of 200 metres and this is the tuning required by most of those who have made up their own Crystal sets the commercial stations Are transmitting on a 600-metre wave length and Litis in eludes ships stations. Know the Correct wave length. When we come to the High Power Lon distance stations we get a fair idea of the great variation in the length of wireless Waves. These stations work on a wave in ugh of anything Between 12,000 and 25,000 metres. It can now be understood what e very important filing it is to know the Correct wave length in connection with the working of a set. Each transmitting station is Given a specific wave length to operate on and this enables several stations t6 continue working at one time without interfering with a act other. The action of the Pebble in the Pool and the sending out of a signal from the wireless station is also different in the respect that the Ripples Ean be easily Yeeu but the wireless Waves Are invisible. The actual wave length Given by any transmitting station Means the distance Between one wave to the Crest of the other. Wireless Waves travel through the air at a rate of Zeft Domiles a Mccond so it can be imagined How quickly a wireless message can be sent from one City to another. A trip across the Atlantic Ocean or from one enl of Australia to the other presents no difficulties to wireless Waves. Their. Medium of travel is through Ether and whenever they meet with an Ariel wire properly connected to the necessary radio pet Gey of burnely transmit to the eager listener in the message he is waiting for.

Instead of a confusion of signals it impossible to listen clearly to cach transmitting station up to the full Range of your set. This constitutes one of the is Chauous of wireless work and As a knowledge m wireless is developed an interest is held on account of the wide Range presented for All Forte of experiments. There is plenty of room for development and for the genuine wireless Amateur fresh m i cements Are always offering a convenient Aerial Lead in.
