Mooball. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 March 1907
Mooball. A Correspondent writes : — Owing to the continuous rain for months past, nverything is in a very bad state, and the outlook for the winter is anything but encouraging. Messrs O'Connor, Mills, Jarrett, and others have not, in consequence of -the long spell of wet weather, been able to burn their felled scrub, whioh is a serious loss to them. This' means no corn or pumpkins, and a reduction in fa jjck, particularly pigs, as also poultry , and I understand that a nice lot t : the feathery tribe will be putgupon the .Mullumbimby market from this quarter in a week or so. A terrific whirlwind, which took the form of a cyclone, swept over Mooball Creek, at what is known as Jarrett's Crossing, last week. It took a westerly, course, and in its passage uprooted itrees and carried limbs and branches a distance of over 100 yards. Heavy rain fell iiere on the 13 th., ?12 tli., 13th., 14-th., and 15t-h ^ns't, leaving acres of land covered with 'water. When, oh when ! -will we get those m...
THE OVERSEA EMPIRE. AN INTERESTING SUMMARY. A POPULATION OF 350,000,000. A DEBT OF L700,000,000. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 March 1907
THE OVERSEA EMPIRE. AN INTERESING SUMMARY. A POPULATION OF 350,000,000. ?' A DEBT OF L700,000,000. Many striking facts regarding the Brl- , tish dominions beyond the seas, 'the States of the Empire outside the United Kingdom, are given in a statistical ab stract issued in 'the form of a Blue-book late In December. In the first place it is found (says the 'Daily Express') that the oversea Em pire comprises 11,193,000 square miles, or about 100 times the size of the Mother land. Its population totals nearly 350.000,000, but the large majority of these subjects of the King tire to be found in India, the totals being: — India (British and Feudatory) .. 300,000,000 Rest of the Empire ? 50,t*)0.000 Roughly speaking, if India is excluded the population of the Empire averages four persons to the square mile, aind it is therefore very evident that a considerable amount of room is left for expansion.

Didn't you understand me?' asked the stout man testily. 'Yas,' and the placid German face did not change In expression or color. 'But what kind sirup you want him mltout?

THE OPEN WINDOW. - A HOMELY CAUSERIE.. Anthony Rowley' writes, In the ? 'Glasgow Herald':— . I I have my small contribution to make to one of the hardy perennials, the ' deathless topics of this Journal — the householder and the flat system. It Is mine to treat of the middleclass French man as ho is housed In Paris; the class that corresponds with that at home, whose members claim abatement under Schedles (D) and (E), and who live in terraces and commodious villas. In former visits to Paris, we have of ten been royally entertained by French men, but always at some restaurant or cafe; during this sojourn we have for the first time received the warm hospi tality of several French homes. The French — by their own confession — are not given to much home hospitality to strangers. Men of this middle class in Paris usually live in a small 'ap- partment' of from four to six rooms, to which is attached the merest dot of a kitchen or cooking cupboard. On her regular days, Madame receives her ...
