ODD DETECTIVES. HOW CRIMINALS BETRAY THEMSELVES. TRACED BY THEIR TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907
ODD DETECTIVES. HOW CRIMINALS BETRAY THEM SELVES. TRACED BY THEIR TEETH. It is not sufficient nowadays Cor a bur glar to wear gloved or goloshes during his professional hours, lest a finger print or footmark prove his undoing; he must have an eye also to his teeth — metaphor- ically speaking, of course — as a Lyons housebreaker, who was Indiscreet' enough to leave behind him the imprint 01 nis teeth on a halt-eaten apple, re cently found to his cost. Indeed, it is by no means unlikely that In future years dentists may be able to add sub stantially to their incomes by acting as detectives, as the following recent stories of crime indicate. According to Dr. Hans Gross, in his 'Archives of Criminal Anthropology,' a banker was murdered in St. Petersburg some time ago, and near him was found a cigar holder with (in amber mouth piece. The holder was so shaped that it could only be held in ono position in the mouth, and a close examination showed that it had two marks, which must have been...

Byron Shire Council. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 February 1907
Byron Shire Council. - (From the 'Record.') On the 19th. inst. the regular fortnightly meeting of the Council was held in the Shire Hall. In attendance : Crs. Jarman (President, occupying tho chair) Bato, Macgre gor, . Collings, Armstrong, Banner, the Shire Engineer (Mr. D. Munro), the Shire Clerk (Mr. J. McSheehy). The minutes of the previous meet ing were read and confirmed on the motion of cr. Armstrong, seconded by cr. Macgregor. The President, in a minute, drew attention to the fact that the out break of plague was still causing anxiety in Sydney, from .whence we had two steamers a week, and there was nothing to prevent rats leaving these steamers as there were no metal discs on the ropes. It behoved the townspeople to assist in keeping the town in a state of cleanliness. At Kempsey the outbreak of plague — attributed to rats probably con; veyed in produce from Sydney — had simply paralysed business. Cr. Macgregor thought a motion should bo moved in the matter. Cr. Banner v.- a...

Mr Dear Secretary. — I know you and ill the girls of the Club are just dying ' to hear all about my encasement to Harry Parker. I suppose you are all very much disappointed In me. You ex- ! pected me 10 marry a Duke or a mil- j lionaire, or some such thins, and, though ! Harry is not badly off, he's 'a maist | awfu' dooneome,' as the saying is. But I ' let me reassure you.

The Trail of the Serpent BOOK THE FOURTH. CHAPTER VI.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 February 1907
The ...Tpail of the Serpent.. By M. 33. BRA.333DOM-f BOOK THE FOURTH/ CHAPTER VL—(Co-ilinued.) But there isn't a cove as lives as can stand that first tap of a detective's hand upon his shoul der as tells him, plain as words, ' The game is up.' The best of em,- and the pluckiest of 'em, drops under that. If they keeps the colour in their face — which some of 'em has got the power to do, and none as never tried it on can guess the pain — if they can do that 'ere, the perspiration breaks out wet and cold upon their for'eds, and that blows 'em. But this young gent — he was . took aback, he was surprised, and he was riled, and used bad language ; but his colour never changed, and he wasn't knocked over till Jinks, unbusinesslike, told him of his uncle's murder, when he turned as white as that 'ere 'ed of Boner part.' Mr. Peters, for want of a better comparison, glanced in the direc tion of a bust of the victor of Marengo, which, what with tobacco smoke and a ferocious pair of burnt ' co...
