ROMANCE OF HISTORY. CLAIM TO AN EARLDOM DISALLOWED. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907
ROMANCE OF HISTORY. CLAIM TO AN EARLDOM DIS ALLOWED. The Committee of Privileges of the House of Lords has held that Lord Mow bray has failed to make out his claim to the title of Earl of Norfolk. At present the title of Earl of Norfolk is carried by the Duke of Norfolk, but according to Lord Mowbray there is no Earl of Norfolk at present, and his peti tion is that the Crown will call it from abeyance in his favor as the. senior of three., co-heirs — Lord Petrie and Lady Berkeley being the other two. : All that he asks for Is the title, the acquisition o£ which admittedly will neither increase his pis-ession«. nor his lent-roll. His position ivuuld be enhanced, but- whether or not he would be premier earl Is a debateable point, as the earl dom of Arundel, which is held by the Duke of Norfolk, Is iegarc!ed by some authorities as an earlier creation. Nor does the title carry with it any heredi tary oflice, tlnd certainly rot the Earl Marshalship, which is vested in the Duke of Norfolk...

An Ancient Mystery Solved [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907
An Ancient Mystery Solved The mystery of the phantom ship - of Cape Horn, which, has puzzled superstitions mariners for centuries and led many vessels and their crews^' to a watory grave, has at last been solved, 'according to the 'Daily ?EXDress;' Ships from Europe to. Western America by way of Cape Horn have been startled by what seemed to be a derelict vessel with water washing over the decks. The Crown of Italy was one of the ships which sighted the supposed ? ghostly vessel in distress, and in going to its aid ran on a rock and was wrecked. Not along ago the Norweigan bargue Servia arrived at Seattle with the tale of a phantom ship which almost exactly corresponded to that given by officers of tho Crown of Italy. Owing to the Norweigan's strange story the United States Hydrogra phic Office instituted inquiries. At their request the Argentine Govern ment sent out a steamer which found that the apparition was due to a strange freak of nature. Among the black, jagged roc.ks that l...

Kempsey. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907
Kempsey. - . When the fire was at its height the spectacle was most awe-inspiring! The reflection of the flames could be seen 20 miles around Kempsey. Mr Maraun, manager of the E. S. and A. Bank states that all the documents in the Safe in the Central Kempsev branch were re covered intact. Mrs. Maclean, sister of James Russell, the recent victim of plague, died in the hospital from plague. Her little daughter is suffering from the disease, but is much better. The whole of Kempsey has been declared a plague-infected area. Two nurses have been sent from Sydney in case of emergency. The cause of the outbreak of the fire is wrapped in profound mystery. All that is known is that the blaze originated in the Chronicle office. No blame whatever (says the Angus) can be attached to our contemporary's staff. The plant was not insured to nearly its full value and Mr. Gabell and Mrs.. Scott are heavy losers. Strange rumors are going around relative to incendiarism, and it is hoped that a searchi...

The half-glass door that communicates with the little back parlour is ajar, and Gus is talking to someone within. ' If I go over the water to-night, Bell ? ' he says. A feminine voice from within interrupls him : — ' But you won't go to-night, Gus ; the last time you went to' that horrid Smasher's, Mrs. Thompson's little boy was ill, and they sent into the London Road for Mr. Parker. .

ONLY ONCE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907
ONLY ONCE. . Johnny Smith Is a smart boy, and is in no way inclined to hide his light under a bushel. He ran ? away with a travelling circus some little time back, and when he returned was more than ever disposed to 'put on airs.' One -day another circus came to the towu. and Johnny was promptly on hand, assuming all the airs of a proprietor as he showed his friends round. An elephant was among tho attractions,- and Johnny, with the consent of the keeper, actually made the animal kneel. simple performances. But at last the ele phant scorned to grow tired of this, for he suddenly threw his trunk round Johnny's waist, and tossed him high up into the air. Johnny came down with a tremendous thud, on all fours. 'Bravo!' cried tho boys, thinking it a part , of .the performance. 'Do It again, Johnny. That was splendid.' Johnnny rose deliberately, and wiped tho dirt from his face. 'No, no, boys,' ho said, 'that act is never repeated. It would tiro tho elephant.'
