TREASURE TROVE AT MAPPIN AND WEBB'S. A strange discovery of hidden treasure was recently made at Oxford street, Lon don. Messrs Mappln and Webb are pulling down their premises ait the corner of Winsley street, and are erecting a mag nificent building, which is to be faced with Greek marble, from._the designs o£ Air iseicner, -A.ru a. Some of the firm's workmen were tear ing up the flooring of a large room on the top floor, when, to their intense amazement, they found a large number of brown paper parcels, tightly packed together in the double flooring. The workmen, on opening the parcels, found thai each contained solid silver and plated articles covered with tissue paper and cotton-wool— packed, in fact, as if they were about to be sent away to customers.

CONFUCIUS PROMOTED. RELIGIOUS DIFFICULTY SOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 March 1907

CONFUCIUS PROMOTED. RELIGIOUS DIFFICULTY SOLVED. A Router's telegram irom -feKing, pud lished in the London newspapers of the 1st January, stated that an Imperial Edict had been issued raising Confucius to the same rank as heaven and earth, which are worshipped by the Emperor alone. 1 , It Is believed that tills Edict has been promulgated in aeierence co tne religious scruples of the Christian students in the Government colleges, who object to kow-tow, as required by immemorial custom, before the tablet of Confucius that is placed in all State colleges. ? Confucius, it may be remarked, has received his promotion rather late. He was born about 550 B.C. It is doubtful if he had any real belief in a personal God, but his teachings have had, and still have, a tremendous Influence in China. Yet he can hardly be said to have founded either a religion or a philosophy, All his teaching was de voted to practical morality. People will put money Into all things. At the beginning of the twentie...

ACTORS ON HORSEBACK. OCCASIONALLY OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 March 1907

ACTORS ON HORSEBACK. OCCASIONALLY OFF. Unless it be the restless energy of cer tain players, nothing on the stage is so wearing to the nerves of an audience as the restive energy of horses. Even the tame white horses with pink rings round their eyes, who stand in so reverent an attitude while the leading actor recites Shakespeare, and who have never been I Known to take fright at the leading lady's salary, give us many an anxious moment. High kicking is not an art that drops out of one's composition when one joins the modern stage, and who can be quite sure that the noble animal with a tall crimped and ribboned like the hair of a good little girl is not contem plating, as he stands so innocently among the 'Lords, Officers, Citizens, Messengers, Attendants, Pages,' and what not, lifting one of his two legged companions into the tangled regions above the stage? The brute's docility may merely be put on. All -the world's a stage. 'SCRATCH-CRADLE' IN THE SADDLE. Mr Lyn Harding, who Is t...

ITe rang for a messenger and bade him fetch a barber, but the man returned from a fruitless errand saying that all the shops were shut cwing to Monsieur le Ministre's own law on Sunday closing, which had just come, into force.

MODERN INDIAN BRIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 March 1907

MODERN INDIAN BRIDES. The Oneida Indians, says tho 'Mil- waukee Sentinel,' are particularly well off this year, and as a conse quence, the number of marriages dur ing the past few months on the reservation has been excepti inally large. Most of these take place at Hobart's Episcopal Church, a fine stone structure which succeeded the little log chapol erected in 1822 by the Oneidas when they first 'trekked' into Wisconsin. The affluence of .this highly civilised Indian tribe is shown by the grand silk wedding dresses and the lovely bouquets, tho nut brown brides now affect in imitation of their white sisters, Tho service is, as a rule, fully choral. An in teresting detail is that the Indian bridesmaids wear veils as well as the bride. The. bridegroom himself assumes all the responsibilities ,or tho marriage arrangements, including tho wedding dress'; probably a relic of tho old custom when the brave substantially recompensed the father for the loss of his daughter.
