tim of the underworld's code of honor"

NAME OF AUSTRALIA'S
IDEAL CITY MEAN8 "LAUGH
ING JACK A8S."
LONDON, Mar. 17.—Australians are
considerably agitated, according to
the Daily Chronicle's correspondent
in Melbourne, by the report that "Can
barra," the name recently selected
for the new ideal city of the common
wealth really means "Laughing Jack
Ass." Archibald Meston, a noted
Queensland authority on aboriginal
riames, makes the amusing assertion.
After having studied the derivation of
the word, those who regard the au
thority's verdict as correct, are blam
ing the government for not taking the
preliminary precaution of having as
certained the meaning of "Canbarra"
before coming to a decision.
The laughing jack ass of Australia
is. not a jack ass, but a large bird
w'hich is highly appreciated by farmers
because it kills snakes. The name
is given to the bird because of its
raucous cry, which it emits usually at
siun-up and sun-down. The cry re
sembles the laughter f a human
being in uncontrolled glee.
