CHRISTIAN SCIENCE. A CASE IN THE COURT. JUDGE WARNS THE SECT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE. A CASE IN THE COURT. JUDGE WARNS THE SECT. What Mr Justice Giantham, in sum ming up the manslaughter charge against Hobt. FePowes Chisholm, a Chis wick architect, called an important case, 'because it was the fiist occasion on which a Christian Scientist had been called to account for the omission to summon a doctor to a child who was ill,' ended on Saturday in a verdict of guilty of the lesser offence of neglect. 'The law in dealing w.th the case of children,' added the learned judge, 'very wisely said that those who had control of them owed it a duty to them and to the nation to call in melical aid If ne cessary.' The court at the Old Bailey was again crowded .to its utmost capacity with Christian Scientists, a large proportion being ladies. After a searching cross-examination of Professor Willeox, the Home Oilice spe cialist, in Older to show the difficulty, of making a true diagnosis of diphtheria, of which the boy had died, Air Kings bury addressed the jury f...

AFFAIRS IN SERVIA. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907

AFFAIRS IN SERVIA. Mr S. Tesla writes us a long letter ex planatory of the state of affairs in Ser via, where, as we have been informed ? by cable, there is a movement in favor of the dethronement of King Peter. Mr Tesla asserts that this movement is con fined to a small reactionary section of ?uie puuue men anu peujjiu, wno au nut. number more than one-eighth of the population of the country. This pp.rty is represented in Parliament by nine teen members out of a total of 199, the other 171 being radicals and socialists. In the opinion of Mr Tesla, the only fault of King Peter is that he trusts the Government of the country to the mt.jo- ? rity instead of to a small minority, as King Alexander used to do. The lat ter's Government ruled by the sword, ' \ and the people will riot tolerate a re currence of that policy. *f King Peter should be removed from the throne, he will be the last king, and Servia will cease to be a kingdom. All King Peter's Ministers, Mr Tesla declares, are radi...

GREAT MEN. THE CHOICE OF NAMES. QUAINT AND QUEER. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907

GREAT MEN. THE CHOICE OF NAMES. Q.UA1NT AND QUEER. James Douglas writes in 'M.A.1-.'S: Tho names of great men are near ly always quaint and queor. An odd name is nine-tenths of genius. It is hard Lo make yourself hnmorlnl if your name is Brown, or Smith, or Jones, or White, or l.Uack, or Groy. Mr Henry Arthur Jones is not near ly so famous as Mr 1'inero. I feel ouiu (.(nit au is jiaiHiiiiappuu u,y ilia name. If lie had . anagrammod Jones into Jenso, or Jcnos, or Snojo, or Sjeno, he would havo started fair. Tlie poet, Alexander Smith, 1 am convinced, would havo been famous if he had chosen a more poeti 'il cognomen. Kirke White is unoll..-' shadow of a name. Gray savod hit' self by spelling his name with an 'a.' On the other hand, observe How easily Mr lvipling jabbed his name into tho public eye. Jiudynrd ICipling is a name that Uiiighs nt oblivion.

THOUGHT READING. AN UNKNOWN FORCE. REMARKABLE PERFORMANCES. 'I am riot a magician,' said M. Zancig. 'I claim no sixth sense. What I do claim Is \hat when I 'wish my wife to see something beyond her powers of vision, I can transmit it to her.' That is the claim which M. and Mme. Zanclg put to the proof every night in their remarkable entertainment at the Alhnmhrn. \T KiinoAv frnos nmnncr the audience and receives all sorts and kinds of articles. ' Madame Zanclg, remaining on the stage, is yet able to describe those articles In the minutest detail. When a match-box Is handed to M. Zanclg, al most before he has counted the matches madame Is telling the audience how many there are. That Is but a slight example, but It serves to explain the kind of thought-reading of which M. and Mme Zanclg are capable. How Is it done? M. Zanclg does not profess to explain. Chatting with a re presentative of the 'Daily Telegraph,' he remarked that when he thought of anything intently his wife was conscio...

PRINCE OLAF. LONDON'S NEW TOY. From Flushing, on Sunday, lltii No vember, the correspondent of the Lon don 'Daily Mail' wrote: — At 11.15 precisely this morning his Royal Highness Prince Olaf, aged three, walked down the platform of the rail riedly through the royal waiting room to the quay side, and went on board and took command of the royal yacht Vic toria and Albert. I say walked, but the word hardly represents his method of progression. Balancing himself on one chubby little leg, he paused before regaining his balance with the other to smile wonderingly round a: the strange uniform which the Norwegian. Dutch, and English officials had donned {-i his honor. There was no superfluous d'giitv about Prince Olaf. He was engaged on the first great journey of his life, and , he was frankly interested. The Court Chamberlain sent by Queen Wiihelmina astonished him. He looked upon the black-coated Norwegian officials with a i friendly eye, and the British naval uni forms so delighted him ...

A PRIVATE JESTER. HIS .1 OKlvS VALUED AT U EACH Kings no longer employ their private Jesters, bu-t American millionaires appa rently have adopted the kingly privilege, and an American court u month ago fixed the standard rate of remuneration. The .Testers' Union will see that the legal wage is paid in future. Captain Louis I jams is the modern re presentative of the ancient profession. Ho declared thnt he was retained as pri vate jester by the lato Mr Abraham Brokaw. a millionaire, of Bloomington, Illinois. He was paid no salary, but Mr Brokaw seemed to havo played a prac tical joke on the jester, for Captain Ijams' name did not appear in it. For once, however, the jester was serious. He entered suit in the County Court for L2000, and furnished an item ised bill for 1000 funny stories told by him to' Mr Brokaw at L2 a story. Mark Twain has declared that there are only fivo original jokes, and that all others are variants of them, and Mr Brokaw's heirs, in contesting his claim, quote...

SOAP IN THE EARLY DAYS. REGARDED WITH SOME DOUBTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907

SOAP IN THE EARLY DAYS. REGARDED WITH SPME DOUBTS. Among those who are the hottest op ponents bath of the book and the soap trusts are probably many who only wash — and read — bec'r.use it is the custom to do both. We (London 'Dally Chronicle') refer these to a delightful Early Victor ian. guide to etiquette, which makes the bold declaration that 'soap does not Ir ritate tne complexion; suik ui me :incf--. complexions wo have. known have been regularly washed with soap every day.' The same author informs us that 'the daiiy, bath is now the rule rather than the exception, and common sense has triumphed over the delusion that wash ing was injurious.' She— it .must have been a she — has a dig at her great grandmother, 'whose only ablutions con sisted in wetting her cheeks with a cam bric handkerchief dipped in rose-water.' The shade of that dainty grandmother must be feeling very scornful ove.r the fuss about dear soap. 'In all our directions with regard to the bath,' adds our Early Vi...

THE MURAT PRINCES. The fatal accident which has cost Prince Eugene Murat his life will cause deep regret to his many relatives and friends, the much-tried Empress Euge nie, of course, included. The members of the house of Murat have never wavered in their attachment to the Imperial lady. In her darkest hours they' were always by her side, the three Princes charging tnemselves with the multirarious ar rangements which were necessitated by the deaths of the Emperor Napoleon III and the Prince Imperial. When the_^--__ shockingly disfigured body of tlieTaRer was brought to Woolwich' 'ifi'e Murats were the first to cixamine it, and I be lieve (writes a correspondent who wit nessed the painful scene) that none of them could positively declare that the mangled remains were those of the Em press's ill-fated son.

WROTH MONEY. There are some quaint ceremonies re maining amongst us yet. One of these is the collection of wroth-silver, which was duly carried out lately at ICnight low Hill, Warwickshire, on the estate of the Duke of Buccleuch. Wroth silver, Wl-nlh niim.iv ni- oirarff-nonnv no it lo ' indifferently called, is a tribute paid in acknowledgment of the tenancy of un enclosed land. The old law is that this rent must be paid on Martinmas day in the morning at ICnightlow Cross before sunrise. When Martinmas, as on the present occasion, falls on Sunday, tho . tribute must be paid at daybreak the day before. Each party paying must go three times about the cross and say, - 'The Wroth Money!' then deposit the silver in a hole in the cross before wit nesses, or forfeit a white bull with red nose and ears. There is no cross now (writes 'Lloyd's Weekly') on Knight low Hill, so tho ceremony is carried out at a stone trough on the summit sur-.s rounded by fir trees. At a quarter to seven on Satur...

HONORED AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907

HONORED AGE. The further south we go in Europe the more centenarians we encounter. Greece has just lo?t a perfectly .well accredited centenarian in the person of Dr Apostolis Magrogenis, formerly chief of the Greek Army Medical Service. The Government was represented at his fimprnl. in consideration not onlv of tho official position which he had occupied, but also of the fact that he was tho last veteran surviving from the War of Independence of 1821. He was nearly thirty, however, when he took part in that campaign, having been born at Paros on 28th January, 17D2. Abstainers and anti-tobaceonlsts will regret their Inability to draw any moral from his remarkable longevity. Though he lived to be 111. for the last ninety years of his life he had regularly taken- a liqueur after every meal, and smoked ten ciga rettes a day. 'I haven't soon your sister, you know. Is she pretty?' 'Well, I don't know exactly. But I notice she never has to stand u]).!n a street car.'.' V
