Useful Hints PARLOUR PASTIMES HOW TO TELL FORTUNES BY DICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 11 April 1903

Useful -pints ♦ \ PARLOUR PASTIMES HOW TO TELL FORTUNES BY DICE. In a few ancient books on fortune telling may be found a number of curious rules on dice and dominoes tbat syill afford many a night's en tertainment. It is rather a pretty pastime to tell fortunes by dominoes or dice, and one about which most people know nothing. Three dice are necessary. They must be all shaken in a wooden box, ?but with the left hand, and then cast on the table within a chalked circle. If the person throws three sixes, or eighteen points, it is a very good sign, means a speedy rise in life,? great profit in business or something else the person has ardently wished for. Seventeen points means water. The person will either go himself on the water or he will have important or profitable dealings with others by way of water. A pleasant journey is promised by 1(1 points, and immedi ately good hick and happiness by lo. Fourteen points warn you to bewaiv of a secret enemy who is ready to hvimx umnp trouble...

NORTH COAST CO-OP. COY., LIMITED. [Newspaper Article] — The Byron Bay Record — 11 April 1903

NORTH COAST CO-OP. COY., LIMITED. The following is the monthly re port of the above Coy., laid before the Board of Directors on Thurs day : Cream. — The cream supply has en creased considerably during the past month, that of the Lismore Factory being more perceptible. The influ ence of good showers after the re cent dry weather is very noticeable, and it is pleasant to note that the greatest output of butteu has been made during the last four weeks, the last weeks manufacture being over 38 tons. The cream on the whole has not been so satisfactory as it might have have been, there being a greater quantity of second-class than usual, due chiefly to strong, rank flavour, and small insects in the cream. The former is due, no doubt, to the new grass, and the cream being kept too long before sending to the factory, and in the latter case gauze-netting over the cans will keep out black flies. In some cases cans are held till quite filled up, and suppliers frequently have some cream over fo...
