A SWINDLER FOILED. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907
A SWINDLER FOILED. Tho Government of the tiny Repub lic of San Marino, it is reported from Rome, has nearly fallen a vic tim to the wiles of an internitional swindler, who approached the council of regents with an alleged offer from Mr Fierpont. Morgan to ro-organise thCf Republican (iiiiiiici.s' by., means of a money lottery expected to yiekl. L120.000 net profit. For this Mi Morgan, the self-styled agent hinted, wcu Id accept the title of duke. As for himself (the agent), ho would content himself with a high decora tion and the rank of Consul-General of the Republic in the Unite 1 States. If this were granted him he would, so fie said, immediately arrange mat ters with Mr Pierpont Morgan. The authorities received these proposals with joy, but some of the more pru dent spirits thought fit to make some some discreet inquiries first. Of this tho would-be financial middleman 'seems to have got wind, for he disap peared a-J mysteriously as lie had come.

WHO LAUGHS LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907
WHO LAUGHS LAST. . The Zurich district court was the scene of an amusing incident recently. Tho case Was the outcome of a quarrel between a German resident of Zurich and a Swiss citizen. The latter had indulged in some strong epithets at the expense of the Ger man, who forthwith brought an nc.tinn fni* rlpfnmntinn nl character. Soon after the proceedings opened the .Swiss defendant, apparently a hot-headed individual, incurred a fine for using intemperate language in court, whereupon a broad smile of malicious satisfaction overspread plaintiff's face. Eventually, defend ant- made an offer of L2 to settle the matter in court, which proposition tho judge strongly advised plaintiff to accept. The German, how iver. disdainfully refused, on the ground that his income was L20 per month, and that L2 was not coinmonsurate with the injury done to a man of his position. A whispered conversation then ensued between the judge and the clerk of the court, who consulted the local tax rog-ister. Th...

By 4 p.m. heavy clouds, hanging low, began to bank up in the direction of Broadwater, which later in the day had travelled more west ward till they approached Ballina al most from due west. At the time the storm burst a slight breeze was blow ing from the north;'which evidently drove the clouds seaward. Several sharp flashes of lightning, accom panied by distant claps of thunder .preceded the storm, which represenioJ the bursting of a waterspout.

SUBSTITUTES FOR COPPER. POSSIBILITIES OF SODIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907
SUBSTITUTES FOR COFFER. ? POSSIBILITIES OF SODIUM. A tantalizing possibility is discussed by 'The Electrical World ' The high price of copper has for years inspired a search for something wtiich would serve equally well as ja. conductor of elec tricity, but would be cheaper. To a limi ted extent aluminium has been utilised for this purpose, but it is not an alto gether satisfactory substitute. It now appears that feasibility ot em ploying sodium has been under consid eration. Bujjit for bulk, sodium weighs only one-ninth as much as copper. Its conductivity is lower, but it is asserted that a pound of sodium will render three times the service now performed by a pound of the red metal. Just now sod ium Is a rather expensive article, be- 1 cause there is little demand for it. It is alleged, however, that If manufactured on a largo scale it could be produced for ] seven and a half cents a pound, or less than half the price now paid for copper. I Apparently, then, the work of carrying! ...

Recently a cable message stated that Madame Calve, tho celebrated French prima donna, had been ordered to pay damages to an impressarlo who had lost heavily by reason of the lady's conduct at the Royal Opera House in Dresden.
