TAX ON TITLES. FRENCH PROPOSAL ADOPTED. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
? TAX ON TITLES. FRENCH PROPOSAL ADOPTED. The Chamber of Deputies was busy discussing and voting new taxes this morning (says the Paris correspon dent of ' Daily Mail' on 14th De comber) in connection with tho Bud get. After voting a tax of 8s per annum on upright and ICS per an num on grand pianos, as well as a tax of L4 per annum on all kinds of hand organs, the Chamber discussed a proposal to tax tho transmission of titles of nobility when inherited, as well as a tax on all persons now using titles in Franco. A member brought forward an amendment to the effect that all per sons bearing titles of nobility, and who in five years should not have paid the tax, should bo deprived of their right to use such a title. Tho Baron de Castelnau said that ho ' never used his title, but that he was curious to know how tho taxcollec tor would distinguish between the real titles and the self-made Utles which arc now so commcn. The President, speaking for tht- Go vernment, said that the tax would...
Texas Fever. NATURE OF THE DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
Texas Fever. | NATURE OF THE DISEASE). Texas fever i;S caiised by an organ ism which lives within the red blood corpuscles and breaks them up. It is therefore simply a blood disease The organism does not belong to the bacteria, but to tho protozoa. Tho difference between bacteria and pro tozoa being that whereas the latter belong to the lowest forms of animal life, the ' bacterium is a microscopic plant. The protozoa multiplies very rap idly in the body of the infected animal, and in very bud cases causes an enormous destruction of red corpuscles in a few days. Aud in regard to this a very curious fact comes to light, namely, that it is not the destruction of the red corpuscles that causes death, but the inability of the organs to dispose of tho wasto products. A steer Weighing/; 1000 pounds will havo about SOlbs of blood in its body ; 51bs to lOlbs of this blood will be destroyed in 24 hours in a bad case of fever, and the re mainder of these corpuscles and tho coloring matter in t...

Destructive Fire at Lismore [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
Destructive Fire at Lismore I During the eai-ly hours of Monday morning (says the 'Northern Star') a fire occurred in Woodlark-street, which resulted .in the total destruc tion of four wooden one storey shops, the property of Dr. Connor, of Mul- lumbimby. Constables Taylor and Graham were on duty in the (own at the time, and about 4 o'clock Con stable Taylor noticed smoke p.oming from the rear of Messrs. CavroH's saddler's shop, and on investigation found a fire in full blaze. He at once ran round the corner to the cab stand telephone and sent an alarm to the brigade, the boll ringing at 4.5 a.m. Though the turn-out under the circumstances was prompt, by the 'time the brigade arrived the whole of the shop was burning, and the fire had spread on to the next door pre mises occupied by Messrs. M. Gay and Co. The inflammable nature of the buildings, which were built of tim ber, was most favourable to the spread of the flames, and before any thing could be done it had obtained such a hol...
Lismore Dry-press Brick Company, Ltd. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
Lismore Dry-press Brick Company, Ltd. The following is extracted from the 'Northern Star.' The above company is now in full swing. The works were commenced at Bexhill, under the most adverse conditions, due to the wet season, last year, and peculiarities of shalo on the site. The preliminary difficulties are now over and the manufacture of bricks is proceeding most satisfactor ily. Since opening the works have turned out over half a million bricks and the present output averages 10,000 to 11,000 per day of 8 hours. It is necessary just now to work overtime in order to cope wifli present requirements. Over 20 nisn are now employed. The demand for their bricks has irioro than justified the enterprise of the company in putting down the plant and they claim that, from results as far as quality is con cerned, their bricks are suDerior to any Sydney brick, including O.K., or face bricks — and in proof of this we subjoin a lettor from Messrs. Blacket and Wall, architects, rccognised au tho...
DOCTOR AND PATIENT. "THE MEDICAL CONSCIENCE." [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
DOCTOR AND PATIENT. 'THE MEDICAL CONSCIENCE.' Should doctors mislead in order to cure? Are misrepresentations a medi cine? Such are the questions raised by an article in a recent number of the 'Hos- pital' on. the medical conscience. 'It not infrequently arises,' says the writer, 'in the relations of the doctor with his patients, that perplexing prob lems present themselves to his mind as to how far he Is justified in withhold ing the truth, or in adopting subterfuges j of :manner or speech with the intent to deceive. 'It is now very generally recognised ? that in many morbid conditions, especi ally ?'in those of a nervous or neuras- ' thenic order, suggestion forms a most useful therapeutic measure, and this frequently Involves methods of decep tion. 'In all cases It Is essentially the in terests of the patients themselves that the doctor has to consider. Hence, In their interests, and in their Interests alone, is he justified in adopting me thods of speech or action which may misl...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
Of |three adjoining Shires, it is not '.'easonable to expect Byron Bay to bear the whole cost of the work. I would therefore, suggest that this Shire contribute proportionately to the amount contributed from other sources, and also in tho samo way to the amount contributed by public ^ subscription towards road of access to Mullumbimby cemetery. 4. Laverty's Gap Road : While fully recognising the importance of this road with its increasing- settle- ment and heavy timber traffic, I can not advise metalling the portions complained of. To metal a 12 foot cutting on a steep gradient traversed by heavy timber trucks, would be a useless expenditure. This cutting ?with others of a similar character in the Shire, must be widened to at least 18ft before any metal can be laid to advantage. Meanwhile this portion of the road will be kept open until more permanent work can be undertaken. 5. Application to open Reserve Road through Portion 33. There does not appear to be sufficient traffic or set...
AUSTRALIA'S FUTURE. FINANCIAL CRISES REVIEWED. THE DISASTROUS DROUGHTS. ALARMISTS ANSWERED. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 March 1907
AUSTRALIA'S FUTURE. FINANCIAL CRISES REVIEWED. THE DISASTROUS DROUGHTS. J' ALARMISTS ANSWERED. Australia's history lies in the future; her past affords us records of no famous victories, save over the privations and disasters of Nature In her unkindcr moods; her heroes are the heroes of the stock-whip and the spade. The real life of Australia began in 17SS, when Captain Philips set foot on her shores at Sydney with 1030 sonls, mostly convicts. With them they brought sixty animals, the parent stock of Australia's millions. By 1813 the pioneer pastoralists had occupied the western plains of New South Wales. In 1842-3 came the first of those disas trous financial crises which have more than once swept over the colony. Govern ment money, deposited in the tanks and lent by them to land speculators, was withdrawn for the furtherance of a scheme of assisted immigrati6n. The banks called in their advances, and in the rush to realise sheep were sold at Gd a head, cattle at 7s Cd, and horses ...

OLDEST LADY JOURNALIST. FIFTY YEARS OF PRESS WORK.

BOILER BURSTS. AN AFP AIDING EXPLOSION. TWO MEN INSTANTLY KILLED. IRON HURLED 400 FEET. Without any more serious warning than a deep rumbling noise of a second's duration, a terrific explo sion, resulting in the instant death of two men and injury to a number of others, occurred lato on the 20th December at the chief generating station of the South Metropolitan Electric Light and Power Company ' Ltd., in Blockwall iane, East Green- 1 wich.
