CARE OF THE HANDS. IMPORTANT TO WOMEN. SOME VALUABLE HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907

CARE OF THE HANDS. IMPORTANT TO WOMEN. SOME VALUABLE HINTS. 'Hands,' remarked a young girl once, ' are such qtiejr things, rather ugly in themselves, too, but, of courso, we couldn't get along with out them. X believe,' she added naively, ' that I liko my own bettor than' any 1 ever saw — probably bo cause I know how to use them.' Sho did know how to uso them, and sho knew how to take ca-e of them (says the I'itts-iurg ' Weekly Dispatch'), and in acquiring this knowledge sho had learned the sccret of a pretty hand. Nature has noti boon lavish in be stowing hands thkt are fit for sculp tots' models upon her daughters. Rcseleaf palms, tapering finger tips and almond nails arc not a part of the average woman's portion, but there are very few hands that can not bo made more attractive with care. To begin with, very few women know how to hold their hands. Watch an actress of any standing walk across tho stage, and you arc not conscious that she has any hands cxcept as a necessary part in...

A STORY OF MUDDLE. Legal circles in Madrid arc greatly , excited over an extraordinary com- | plicated law suit which is occupving I the attention ol the courts thpre. In 189d a certain Isaac Gutierrez bought some estates situated in different north-eastern provinces of the Penin sula- file seller .soon afterwards died intestate, nnd Ins heirs, unawaro of the sale, of which no record was found amongst deceased s papers, entered into a contract for the dis posal of tho property to a third j party. I ho conveyancing of theso properties appears to have been a very complicated business : but when the first buyer confronted tho sccoud with his legal documents, an extra ordinary discovery was made.

SAVED BY THRIFT. WEALTH OF THIRTY MILLION PEOPLE. The remarkable extent to which the organisation of thrift has grown in Great Britain is shown in the annual report of the Chief Registrar of Friendly Societies, issued recently. Roughly speaking, there are 50,000 in stitutions over which the chief registrar exercises statutory functions, and these have a total membership of 30,000,000 Individuals and accumulated funds amounting to over L402,000,000, on in ' crease .since the year 1897 of 6,750,000 members and L06, 000,000. Making allowances for probable dupli- j cation, the chief registrar estimates that each individual of the 30,000,000 has an interest In one or other of the Institu tions worth L15.— 'Express.'

BALLOON RACING. j THE MOST DANGEROUS SPOUT, j LEADERS IN NEWEST PASTIME. - THE AUTOMOBILE RACE ANTEDATED. Unless all signs fail tho automoibilo race, although cnly a few years old, hus had its day. Tho balloon race, the derby in the clouds, is the latest and most excit ing tost cf speed skill. It surpasses tho auto contest in every respect.

ARCTIC NOMADS. J'EOPLE WHO NEVER SAW WHITE MEN. A new race of people has t»en dis covered on Prince Albert Land, in the Arctic, who had never previously seen white men, who lived under most primi tive conditions, and who were armed with copper knives, and bows and ar rows. The information was brought south to British Columbia by the crew of the Bri tish revenue cutter Thetis, who 'learned the facts from the discoverer of the people, Captain Klinkenberg, of the steam whaler Olga. Last winter, when his vessel was In the ice near Prince Albert Land, Captain Klinkenberg, accompanied by Eskimos, started inland on a hunting expedition. He went 250 miles in a north-westerly direction over the snow, finding traces of people, and finally overtaking 150 or more of them. When they saw him they came towards him, armed with copper knives, and bows and arrows. They held these above their heads, and he pointed a rifle at them.

CHINESE IN LIVERPOOL. COMPETE WITH WASHERWOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907

CHINESE IN XiIVEHFOOI/. COMPETE WITH WASHERWOMEN. The thirty-two Chinese whose deten- ' tion by the Immigration Board in Lon don has drawn public attention to the amount of yellow labor in England, were removed to Liverpool, and at once ' taken; under the guidance of their pros pective employers', to the Chinese quar ter of the city. There is a strong public feeling against any increase of the Chinese colony in \ Liverpool. Tlio petition of protest which ' the Immigration Board in London de clined to entertain was one evidence, and Inquiries made by a 'Daily Mail' repre sentative in Liverpool plainly showed that the feeling is widespread. Mr Arthur J. Tudor, who was a lead ing spirit in the promotion of the pe tition, expressed strong views on the subject. 'Over thirty laundry women,' he said, 'are now in Brownlow Hill Workhouse, driven there by the influx of the Chinese, The conditions under which they work are such as to cut out English labor.' More striking still is the opinion h...

CHINESE LABOR IN ENGLAND. PROBLEM FOR THE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907

CHINESE LABOR IN ENGLAND. PROBLEM FOR THE GOVERNMENT. The recent arrival of thirty-two Chin ese at Blackwall presents a nice problem for the Liberal Government. The men are practically destitute, having only about 10s between them, but they state that their destination is Liverpool, whero they are to lie provided With work, chiefly in laundries. In view of the perfervid denunciation by Liberal Allnisters of yellow labor in South Africa it will be Interesting to watch their action with regard to yellow labor in Liverpool, where the Chinese are : doubtless destined to supplant white labor. i The Chinese arrived at Blackwad on board the Machaon. irom Hong Kong, on Monday, 19th November, and wore detained on the ground of lack of I means. The Immigration Board subse quently held a meeting to consider the matter. Mr Hitterick. missionary to swimen at the Strangers' Rest.

DETERIORATION OF FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907

DETERIORATION OF FRUIT. Australian orchardists are greatly in terested in the way disease develops in fruit when kept for any length of time.: . . It is known that, fruits which showed little or no signs of disease on being ex ported have occasionally reached their destination in a rotten condition. This has generally been attributed to the . fruit having been carried at a faulty ?temperature. In this connection the Cornell Horti cultural Science ' Association, United States has been carrying out some in teresting experiments. Several varieties of apples were inoculated with black rot, brown rot. bitter lot, soft rot, and blue rot. and immediately placed m cold stor. age at the standard temperature ran g- jng from 30 to 32 deg. F. At the end of two months none of these diseases, except the soft or blue rot, had deve loped. Later, when the inoculated fruit was kept out of storage, tne other . dis- eases mentioned also developed, showing' that the low temperature of the cold storage s...

But it kno'vs little f of the magnificent type of armo.ed crui ser. of which three are now building for the British Navy. -5 These vessels, known as the Invin- lolo class, are as startling departures from past practice as the Dreadnought. They have been designed and constructed in secret, and little about them has as yet been permitted to appear m print. Some idea of their battle power can be obtained when we state the fact that they can fire no fewer than eight mam moth 12-incn guns on the broadside. ?These huce weapons are of the latest pattern, and possess amazing pewer. ? - Some faint idea of the terrific force which they develop can be gained from the fact that, when discharged simulta neously. the energy imparted by them to their...

COOK AS COLONEL. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907

COOK AS COIiONEIi. Visitors to the United States in doubt as to how they should behave have been recommended to address the coachman invariably as 'colonel' and the lift at tendant as 'doctor.' Something similar apparently holds in Russia, where high military rank is conferred upon men who have never done a day's military service in their lives. A university professor or a curator is made a captain or colonel.*' and Court officials of almost any kind are rewarded in the same way — dentists, physicians, and veterinary surgeons. The Czar has even gone so tar as to make his chiropodist a major-general, and his chef ranks as a colonel! Such cheapening of military rank may seem olso incred ible in this country, where the Army of ficer occupies a highersocial position than in most others. It may account for some of the disgraceful actions of eo-ca'led military men in Russia. ? Lord Balfour of Burleigh has unveiled the Knox memorial, which has been erected in the Albany aisle of St. Giles'...
