    Sunday Mail, QLD question.

    On two successive Sundays, the newspaper has referred to a serial story that will appear in another publication.
    Here is one of them: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article98227593. I can't figure out which newspaper to search to find the serial referred to in the article.

    I've done specific and general searches using Dragonfly, Cronin, series, Cardew, Luce. not quite one by one, but in small batches.of QLD pbs. No results. Could it be a newspaper in a different state?

    The story also series appears in
    2 24449 Cronin, Bernard Cronin, Bernard Dragonfly Dragonfly Saturday Journal (Adelaide, SA 1927-12-17 1928-03-24
    3 24450 Cronin, Bernard Cronin, Bernard Dragonfly Dragonfly Observer (Adelaide, SA : 1905 - 1931) 1927-12-24 1928-03-31
    4 24451 Cronin, Bernard Cronin, Bernard Dragonfly Dragonfly TableTalk (Melbourne, Vic. : 1885 - 1939) 1927-12-15 1928-01-26
    5 24487 Cronin, Bernard Cronin, Bernard Dragonfly Dragonfly Western Mail (Perth, WA : 1885 - 1954) 1927-12-29 1928-04-26
    However, the start date for the series described in the Sunday Mail does not match any of the start dates above. While the Sunday Mail seems to give adverts to another, what newspaper are they affiliated with that they can confidently state that the first episode appeared the previous Monday,.. but don't bother to mention the name of the publication.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    The Sunday Mail article specifically identifies Brisbane's "Daily Mail" as the newspaper in which the story is being serialized.

    The Daily Mail was published from 1903 to 1933. It has so far been digitized only up to 1 January 1926. In short, the 6 February 1928 issue of the "Daily Mail" referenced in the article has not yet been digitized.
