BOUND FOR AUSTRALIA. A YOUTH WITH NOTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 March 1907

BOUND FOR AUSTRALIA, A YOUTH WITH NOTIONS. 'Thorold Dalrymple,' the pen-name of a former Melbourne pressman, writes in the 'British Australasian' of 20tli December: — * He is now on his way to Australian wilds, and I think I have done my best to make him thoroughly at home iu un familiar surroundings. His wander-spirit was stimulated by luiuiuu magazine stones or tne spreau ing Australian prairie, and the untamed Australian cowboy. But the youth had a practical bent, and soon devoted him self to a more mature study of school geographies, which assessed -the popu lation of Australia at 100,000, 'chiefly aborigines,' and maps which referred to the interior of that continent vaguely as 'the desert.' From him I learned that Sydney was a town on the shores of Botany Buy, and the rest of Australia was nowhere to speak of (he politely called it terra in cognita, because his geography said so). He had been brought, up in a swell Grammar School; obviously it was a geo graphy class as well. H...

ENGLISH GOLDFIELD. "REEF 31 MILES LONG." [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 March 1907

ENGLISH GOLDFIELD. 'REEF 31 MILES LONG.' For some time past rumors have been alloat as to the. discovery of a gold-field in England within 200 miles of London. It has been stated in whispers that the . reef is thirty-one miles long, and pro- ' sents the same characteristics as a I Itaiui reef. All tho secrecy has boon attributed to the fact that those into- I rested have not .yet secured all tho op tions' over tho land required. \ - Of course, the rumors have been re garded as too good to be true; tliey have naturally been held in derision. It. is now possible to state, however, that-, a syndicate exists which firmly believes in the discovery, and _ a ? 'Daily Mail' representative managed fo find the chairman, who is a gcntlemnu of good standing in the city. This gentle man, while exceedingly reticent, de clared the facts of .the .gold field, as just stated, to be correct.

DOCTOR AS ART CRITIC. PICTURES, FROM A MEDICAL POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 March 1907

DOCTOR AS ART CRITIC. PICTURES, FROM A MEDICAL POINT OF VIEW. Dr. Leonard Mark, in an interesting pappr on art and medicine in a recent issue of 'the 'Lancet,' criticises some well-known masterpieces in this coun try in which the artist has dealt with medical subjects. St. Sebastian, whose body is always represented tied to a stake and pierced with arrows, is one of the most interest ing subjects, from the medical point of view. , 'In our National Gallery,' says. Dr. Mark, 'I have counted eight pictures in which he finds a place, and I have been much interested in studying the various ways in which the arrows havo been de picted penetrating his flesh. 'Some of the methods adopted are purely conventional. In one of them six or seven arrows are drawn exactly alike, and under each one is painted a group of five drops of blood, which, one cannot help remarking, look like n small bunch of currants hanging from- the ar row. 'Apart from the medical question,, some of these artists have sho...

The Tick. THE OUTBREAK OF REDWATER. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907

The Brisbane Daily Mail says : — A very serious situation faces the dairying and pastoral industries in Southern Queensland at tho prescufe time, there being every ?lik^ftiood of serious losses fropr rcu'water in the near future. the milking herds at Dandsboi^Pgh and other districts, on the Iforth Coast line numerous deaths ' have already oc curred, while -at Cooper's Plains and in the Kuuaby district the trouble has got/ a firm hold. Those in the best, -position to correctly estimate the danger regard the matter as most serious. So far nothing in the way of concerted action has been taken in the matter by dairymen, who are apparently awaiting action by the Government instead of bestirring themselves to cope with the matter.
