The particulars of Land Sales which we are enabled to give below may be interesting to many friends who are watching the progress of affairs in North Borneo: The greater part of the country or agricultural land hitherto taken up has been in Sandakan Bay, which with its many rivers affords exceptional attractions to the planter. The favourite river appears to be the Sapagaya, where, following the lead of an experienced Australian sugar planter, the entire area for some miles back has been applied for.

April 1, 1940 Annual General Meeting and the Jubilee Year Marking the hurdling of a milestone in the history of the institution, the Annual General meeting of the Recreation Club on 14th March 1940 was a significant affair. There was almost a record attendance (for such meetings) and in the absence of the Chairman, the Hon. Mr R.F. Evans, on a pleasant mission to Brunei's coronation celebrations, Mr J.S. Aberuethy of the retiring Committee (who is proceeding on home leave in a few months time) took the chair.

February 17, 1938 Grazing land looks like a billiard table now and the Station grounds have as usual suffered from the attacks of roaming sapi and kerbau. The climax was reached a few nights ago when a sapi invaded our very own kitchen and apparently sat down on a water jar. These beasts have a definite plan of invasion. At about midnight they jumped over the wire fence like ungainly antelopes, and proceeded to have on "eve-of-battle” conference on the tennis court. Then they are posted to their various eating grounds where they politely prune away till day-light. They didn't wait for the station gate to be opened but showed off by jumping the fence again on their way home.

March 1, 1885 MARUNDONG, the murderer of Minoodeen was tried by the Governor and Resident on the 7th instant and convicted of the crime. He was executed in the gaol on the 12th and death was instantaneous. Much as the necessity for it is to be regretted, there is no doubt of the justice of the sentences the victim was cut down in the most merciless way while sitting on the jam-baton or wharf, before he had a chance of rising to defend himself.

(January 2, 1931) HOUSEHOLDING was a most convenient mode of travelling in China for missionary families like ours, in the old Shanghai days, for large numbers of children and quantities of luggage could be packed into one boat and conveyed to the hills where we sought refuge from the heat of the plains.

Daily Express (4th March, 2001) Based on archaeological findings, Sabah was inhabited by mankind as early between 10,000 to 30,000 years ago, on the East Coast of Sabah. It has been deducted that more than 20,000 years ago, a lava flow from the now extinct Mostyn Volcano dammed a section of the Tingkayu River causing a huge lake to form. As the lake drained away, caves in the limestone massifs and hills were uncovered and people moved in to live there periodically for about 5,000 years.

JAN 16, 1931 In various books, which give all the romantic atmosphere of the East, Mr Owen Rutter has done nothing better than this. Here are the very Malay pirates of our boyhood come to life in thrilling and duly authenticated tales of the sea robbers of Malaya.

January 16, 1931 Most of the large villages and walled towns of Kiangsu and Chekiang stand on the canals which serve as the highway of the two provinces. Whichever route we took to go to the hills on our annual summer holiday our houseboat had to pass through places of considerable local importance and they always thrilled us.
