A love tragedy which claimed two lives took place shortly before midnight on 21st December (says the London 'Daily Mail') in a quiet road of villa residences in Leyton.

STRANGE STORIES. FROM THE FOREIGN PRESS. A LUCKY FIND. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
STRANGE STORIES. FROM TflE FOREIGN PRESS. A LUCKY FIND. The 'Tagblatt,' of Meissen, Saxony, prints a curious story in which an old pair of trousers plays the leading part. A well-to-do farmer In the neighborhood of that town some time ago mentioned to his wife his intention of discarding a pair of nether garments, and in his ab scence tho wife gave them away to a needy individual who asked for left-off clothing. When the husband on his re turn heard of this, he was furious. Be ing clandestinely addicted to gambling, ho had a secret pocket sown into his trousers, where he kept his working capital in' paper money, and, as It hap pened, a considerable sum which he had recently won at cards. This he had kept strictly from the knowledge of his spouse, an austere lady with pronounced anti-gambling views. Tho farmer's whole anxiety was now concentrated not on the money, which he could well afford to lose, but on the fear that the recipient of the trousers might perchance turn out ? to be a...

A LESSON ON THE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
A L/ESSON ON THE COV. In one of the modern schools a u*st grade teacher was having a lesson on the cow. She was trying to Impress on the young minds the various uses of milk. Butter and cheese had been disposed of, and she wanted some bright genius to tell her how the farmer fed the sur plus milk to the pigs. Leading up to this she asked: 'Now, children, after tho farmer has made all the butter and cheese he needs and uses what milk he wants for his family, what does he do with the milk that still remains?' Dead silence followed for a moment, and then one little hand waved frantically. The teacbcr smiled and said: 'Well, Jim?' 'He potirs it back into the cow,' piped James.

CARE OF THE EYES. IMPORTANT FOR CHILDREN. THE SEVERAL TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
| CARE OF. THE EYES. IMPORTANT FCJR CHILDREN. THE SEVERAL TROUBLES. It has recently been demonstrated that i English school board children show er rors of refraction in 12 per cent. The proportion is probably really greater, for in some cases the tests are conducted by the teachers, who are not experts. In New York 17 per cent, of public school children suffer from defective eye sight. These figures, of course, do not show what part' of tho total population is affected, for myopia often appears In ''va teens, and consequently the l^tnortW^. '''''Utaexcr/^'T.tliat of chil wholo population will be short-sighted In a few generations.

MESSAGE FOR MANKIND. CAN LITERATURE BE TAUGHT? [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
MESSAGE FOR MANKIND. CAN LITERATURE BE TAUGHT? Can literature be taught? The ques tion is dealt with suggestively by Mr T. W. Cowgill, of Reno, Nevada, in the 'Nation' N(New York). It seems clear to Mr Cowgill that if literature can be studied it can be taught;' and also that if it is worth studying it is worth teach t ing. Is it, however, -worth studying in college? Recalling the work he did in this subject at Harvard, under Profes sor Child, Mr Cowgill is convinced that nothing in the college curriculum is .bet ter worth studying, i 'Failure to get good returns results most often from directing the .itudent's attention to the least important phases of the subject History and civi cism are well enough, but they are not the main thing to be studied. If literature embodies the knowledge and wisdom of the hu man race — if it is, as Matthew Arnold called it, a 'criticism of life' — then surely the thought expressed in litera , ture should bo the main object of study. The important thin...

ABSENT-MINDED 3EIDEGROOM. WENT TO WORK INSTEAD OF TO CHURCH. Nine o'clock on Christmas morning was the time fixed for the marriage of an employe of the Brentford District Coun cil. The prospective bride arrived at St. Paul's Church, accompanied by her friends and bridesmaids, dressed in their best, at twenty minutes to nine. The curate, the Rev. W. H. F. .Tel'fcoat, had been on duty since six o'clock, and ( as the bridal party showed signs of im patience, he advised them to sit down end wait until tho appointed time.

WHAT IS PLEASURE? ANALYSIS OF "MORBID JOY." DRUNKENNESS AND INSANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
t WHAT IS PLEASURE? i ANALYSIS OF *' MORBID JOY.' j DRUNKENNESS AND INSANITY. I Pleasure, evolutionists tell us, is Nature's indication that all is going Well ?; pain is a warning signal. If I this is universally true, an intoxi cattxi man should bo happy in tho assurance that all is well with him, and that he is following out Nature's plan. The fact is, of course, that besides normal ^pleasure there arc many kinds that aro abnormal. In a study of what he calls 'mor- bid joy,' of which the unhealthy ex ci&cment of drunkenness or insanity is a variety, Dr liridon contributes to the ' Revue Scientifique' (Paris) a brief classification and description of these abnormal states of pleasure. In the first place, he tells us, there is no such a thing in man as abso lute and complete pleasure or pain. As quoted in the ' .Literary Digest' (Now York), he says : — ' All special grat ification supposes the momentary exaltation of one function at the expense of the oVhera; and if we consi...

TRYPSIN FOR CANEER PROFESSOR MORTON'S DETAILS. LONDON DOCTORS NOT ENTHU ' ' SIASTIC. The cases of cancer alleged to have been cured in America by Professor Mor | ton, of the New York Post Graduate Col | lege and Medical School, by using the digestive ferment 'trypsin,' have had at least the effect of reviving the dying in terest taken by London specialists in the preparation. I Nothing approaching enthusiasm, or even expectation of good results, can be met with among London cancer experts (says the 'Daily Mail.'). Few persons in London have had bet ter opportunities of gauging the possi bilities of trypsin relative to other so called 'cancer cure' than the authorities of the Cancer Research department at the Middlesex Hospital. 'If I ^took a piece of cancerous or of healthy tissue and placed it in a I!a-k containing some trypsin in solutl-n ' said the director, 'it would be dissolved in a certain lime, according to its size. j 'On the other hand, the tip of the ( finger immersed in ...

THE LUDGA TE-HILL BAG. i The market at Ludgate-hlll, London, still attracts more and more hawkers, and each year the crowd grows moro clapiorous. About three years ago the hawkers were deemed a nuisance, and the police had orders to move them on, but lately police interference has not been aggressive.

A RAG OF A BROWN MUFF, j . i ' A STORY OP NELSON DAT. By F. MARIE IMANDT. ; ^ ► CHAPTER L A girl was gazing up at the Nelson monument. A glance showed that she was not looking at the wreaths o£ green ery and the magnificent decorations for 'Nelson Day,' nor was she even aware of the crowds of holiday-makers seeth ing around her and filling Trafalgar - Square with indescribable bustle and chatter. 1 A young man was gazing at tlie monu ment, too— away up Into the sky beyond it. Something soft trapped him; he could Slot see what it was. He thought It must be a hurt dog, and as he was ten der of heart he dreaded the very Idea of stepping on tlie animal. He struggled and stumbled. 'I beg your pardon,' as he almost fell against the ' girl. A pair of soft, clear, short-sighted eyes met his, and she smiled without speaking. 'It is — it Is — I don't know what it is,' and he tried to keep the crowd back with one hand while with the other he ? reached for what he thought was a poor hurt animal...
FUTURE OF THE ARGENTINE. IS HER PROSPERITY PERMANENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
FUTURE OF THE ARGENTINE. IS HER PROSPERITY PERMANENT- : This is a question which Mr Herbe. H. Bassett discusses in the Januai number of 'Chambers's Journal.' 3j, reply to it would seem to be largely 1 the negative. Here is one statement h*. makes: — 'If the reader can conceive tne im perial Exchequer of Britain overflowing with gold as the result of years of pros perous trade, while the Manchester and Liverpool Corporations are defaulting In the payment of interest on ioans bor rowed from German investors, he will acquire some idea of the anomalous posi tion in which the Argentine Government stands to-day. The Argentine Govern ment claims that it is not responsible foi .debts incurred by the provinces. Nor is the Imperial Government of Great Brit ain responsible for the payment of the debts of Manchester or Liverpool; but if the British Government, were seeking to rehabilitate its financial position and na tional credit in the eyes of the woild, it is inconceivable that it would not...
