Australian Frozen Meat Export Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 24 March 1903
Aiisti'iilfnu Fro7.cn Meat Kv port A'rospeets. The position of the frozen nient trnde of Australia can be summed up in tho one wonl, 'serious.' Queensland ia supposed to Imve about six million sbeep left, everyone of which is re quired for local consumption, or re stocking when the drought breaks. New South Wales 1ms about twenty millions lcrr, ana is m tho same posi tion, everyone being required locally for food and for restocking. When (lie rain does come, there will be a great, rush for sheep, and we expect to see a higher price for meat than we are paying at present. Victoria and South Australia may have a few thou ands to send away ; but we think it will pay to send them to Sydney or Brisbane rather than abroad. As regards cattle Queensland will have an exportable surphifj of about 100,000 head, if the Gulf cattle can be brought down to the meat woiks ; but. the price at pre sent isan absolute bar to exports. Aus tralian beef is quoted to-day in Lon don at about 3d per lb., and...

What is Faith? [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 27 March 1903
Wlint is Fa i Hi t A female teacheiyn a school that stood on the banks of a small river, once wished to communicate to her .pupils an idea of faith. While she was trying to explain the meaning of the word, a small covered boat hove in sight. Seizing upon tho incident for an illustration, she ex claimed, ' If I were to tell you that there was a le-; of mutton in that boat, you would believe me, would you not, even without seeing it yourselves f' 'Yes, ma'm,' replied the scholars. ' Well, that is faith,' said the teacher. The next day, in. order to test their recollec tion of the lesson, she asked, ' What is faith .'A leg of muttou in a boat,' was the answer, shoute'd from all parts of the schoolroom.
Compulsory Savings Bank. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 27 March 1903
Compulsory Savings It auk. About two years ago, when work was commenced on one of the railways, Mr. O'SulIivan tried to establish a kind of compulsory savings bank. His idea was to make small deductions from' the wages of the employees week by week, handing the money back in a lump sum when the work was finished. The Minister of Works found himself unable to carry out his idea, one of the principal reasons urged against it being that the high price of provisions left the men no margin for reduction. The other day, however, he announced at Temora that he intended to make another attempt to encourage thrift among men em ployed on Government works. ' The trouble is that men won't look after money when they got it. I intended to try to deduct Is per week from the wages of married men and 2s from single men and save it for them.'' / Mr. O'Sul Iivan thought it was the first £5-note that was difficult to save, and when that was managed the worker often succeeded in increasing his little st...
The Bishop of Melbourne [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 27 March 1903
Tlie Itishop ol* Melbourne The announcement by Bishop Clarke that he intended to hold for many Sun days to come popular Sunday night ser vices of a simple character, with an ex pository sermon, directly appealing . to plain thinking men aud women, has been widely discussed by Anglicans. Some very influential critics of a conversative turn of thought protest against what they regard as a degradation of the standard of British Cathedral services to tho level of that of a parish church. In tho course of conversation the Bis hop of Melbourne exhibited the keenest anxiety for the success of the new order of services. ' 1 thoroughly believe,' he said, ' in these Cathedral services for the people. From experience I know that they deepen spiritual life. Tn my big parish churches in Yorkshire 1 loved to preach to the large congregations of all sorts and conditions of men nnd women who used to come — Nonconformists amongst them— to ' hear what the vicar has to say' — as they put it.

Sewing Up a Broken Heart. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 27 March 1903
Sewing Up a ISroken Ileai-t. Cures of heart wounds are becoming more and more common. Hitherto, however, all the cases reported have boon of wounds caused by knife . or sword, but Mv Launay, a young Paris surgeon, has just related to the Academy of Medicine the details of a case given in the ' Lancet' in which the heart was pierced through by a revolver bullet. During the operation the bullet was found lying iu tho heart sac. There wero two woiJiuls of the heart, one on tho front surface and tho other oil the back surface ; these were sewn with catgut. The heart was then sewn up in its turn, and the chest flap was fastened in place, the patient recovering without a single bad symptom.

An African Tale. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 27 March 1903
An African Talc. 1 TiiKitE is, it lins been snid, always something new out in Africa, and the novel use to which Australian nnd other tinned meats have been put in that country fully bears out the say ing. During the late war, enormous quantities of tinned meats were landed at. Port Natal, but for some reason did not get any further. Owing to fhe crowded state of tlie warehouses, this meat was stacked in the open, with the natural result that in time flie inhabitants passed well to windward of the stacks, for obvious reasons. It was then decided by the authorities that -the tins must betaken out to sen, und thrown overboard, and tlie work proceeded merrily, until the masters of vessels trading to the port complain ed that the channel was becoming blocked. As the Government had expended a good deal of money on dredging this channel, it was decided that the tinned meat must go else where without further delay. The decision arrived nt was that, as the meat was unlit for human food, it ...

A Girl's Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 27 March 1903
A Girl's Adventure. This story conies from France, and is related as true. A youug girl came from Auvergne to Paris in search of employ ment, and took lodgings with a relative. But worK was not to be had, and rather than be a burden to anyone she set off on foot to return home. The distance was more than 300 miles, and the weather : 'very unfavourable, hut she accomplished ? ? , nearly -half ; of tho journey before her strength gave out. In this dilemma she 'undertook to steal a ride. Watching her ? chance at night, she caught on to the .butter of a luggage tr.iin, and on this perilous seat she rode ninety miles before being discovered, half dead with cold and fatigue. Stealing a ride is a serious crime in France, but in this case the girl was tenderly cared for, and sent on to Auvergne.

' Intoxicating Chocolate. One of tho principal confectioners in Glasgow last month imported some foreign-made chocolate callod ' Liqueur Chocolate,' aud haviug reason to bus j poet the presence of spirits in the con- 1 fectionery determined to know his stand ing as regards the law before selling this toothsome sweetmeat. He accordingly snbinitted a sample to the Inland Re venue authorities, and analyses revealed the astonishing fact that it contained no less than 10 per cent, of proof spirit ! Instructions wore given to theettoct that its sale will entail liability to a spirit license. Ten per cent, of proof spirit is about the normal alcoholic strength in bitter beer.— ' Wine and Spirit Trade Record.' i - ? The newspapers favourably notice the 'debut of( Miss Clyde Russell, of Sydney, at the Bechstein Hall, Wigmore-atreet, Marylebone.

"Hall Marked." [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 27 March 1903
''Hall Marked.' No manufacturer of gold aud silver plate in England is permitted to sell, aud no member would even attempt, to purchase a piece (if silver or gold plate that had not. received the ' hall mark,' says ' Scientific American.' This symbol is stamped upon , every section of plate, and is an absolute guarantee of the purity of the metal. '* Hall-marking' is protected by the Legislature. Fraudulent hall-marking is so heavily punishable an offence that attempts to deceive tlie puDHc Dy means of spurious hall-marks are practically unknown. Probably few articles can be easily adulterated as silver and gold, and, were there no such protection as hall-marking in vogue, the public would be extensively defrauded, as the purity of the met il cannot be. determined by cursory ex amination, but only by elaborate test ing. For gold articles the standard marks are a crown and the carat num ber for the two highest- carat standards — twenty-two and J 8 carat respectively this number being...

Equine Curiosity. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 27 March 1903
Eiliiiuc C'ui'io»iiy. A i'oa r, which is a wonderful freak of nature has been born in Gerinautou. The dam is an ordinary chestnut mare, about 14 hands high. The foal has no indication of ears, only 'one eye, which is abnormally large, and rather far round on the front of the face. The nostril on the right or off side of the usual size and shape ; the opposite one is distended very much, and it does not breathe through it. It is MnrtniMPrl flint lltP fnnl rl-tiMi?r-u ifc uunua of hearing throngli its large nostril. The top jaw is shorter than the lower, and inclines to the left, giving the animal tlie appearance of having what is termed a shark's mouth. .One of his most peculiar habits is the way he eats grass, viz., by placing his head between his legs and eating sideways, He is particularly well proportioned in the body, and has a tine set df legs. He gallops round the yaul were he is kept in the daytime as any other foal would, always with his eye towards tho fence.
