SILENT MILLIONAIRE. ONE OF AMERICA'S RICHEST CITI ZENS. Tlie resources of this amazing coun try are so bpundles that it can afford to produce, at a moment's notice, a man nearly as rich as Mr. Rockefeller, whoso existence was never before known out side his immediate circle. All America Is talking to-day of Fre derick Weyerhaueser, the timber mil lionaire. who counts his fortune In linn. dreds of:mllllons of dollars.

THE MILITARY MIRROR. A FRENCH NOVELTY. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907

THE MILITARY MIRROR. A FRENCH NOVELTY. Improvements in the French barracks (writes tne hails cnviespondent of thc 'London Daily Telegraph, '.') are going on aiiuce. TI10 latest addition to their luxuries is a big mirror, which has been provided for the garrison nt Arras. Hitherto it lias been tho custom for tl/ soldiers to present themselves to the non-commissioned officer on duty before thoy left the barracks. The ob ject was to give liln't an opportunity to inspect them and see that they were tidy nnd fit to appear in public. It was ca'.led making the 'demitour,' and seems to have been a rather uupleasunt tusk. Thc commander of the barracks at Arras has conceived the idea of putting tip a big mirror, where the soldiers can look at themselves and see that their belts are properly buckled, that the pompon Is straight, and the buttons In order before making the 'demitour' before the sergeant. If tli? mirror proves a success in helping the men to look smart it will be introduced In ni...

A FRENCH TROUBLE. THE GARDE MUNICIPALE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907

A FRENCH TROUBLE. - ! THE GARDE MUNICIPALS For some days (writes the Paris cor respondent of the 'Daily Telegraph' of 8th January) there has been a rumor to' the effect that the Gardes Republicans, or Municipal Guards, of Paris, inaugur ated 'the New Year by a sort of mutiny, which was at once suppressed, but which the- authorities did not wish to become publicly known. The incident has nmy leaked out, and It appears that then, was some discontent and a mild attempt at insubordination, Which, owing to the circumstances and the day on which It took place, has been leniently dealt with by the authorities. The Municipal Guards arc, so to speak, the gendarmes of Paris. They have their headquarters in one of the finest bar racks In the city, on the Boulevard Henry IV., and arc considered a sort of corps d'ellte. They are very popular with Parisians, and are cheered wher ever they appear on horseback in their Imposing uniforms with plumes and hel met. On Now Year's Day all the men who wer...

An Entombed Miner. A REMARKABLE SITUATION. PERTH, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907

An Entombed Miner. A REMARKABLE SITUATION. Perth, Sunday. * Two divers were set to work on .Friday to reach an Italian named Varischetti, who became entombed in the Westralia and East Extension Mine through an inrush of water. They succeeded in reaching him in the evening, and supplied him with food. Efforts are to be made to get Varischetti into a diving suit and bring him to the surface. When one of the divers reached thc rise where Varischctti is en tombed, upon standing upright, he found his head above water, bo that the whole rise was practically filled with compressed air. Varischetti's surprise when Hughes (diver), armed with a powerful specially constructed electric . light emerged from the water, was extreme. The Italian came to the water's edge, took the light and held it all round, viewing the diver's gear with amazement. Hughes was unable to remain long, and after leaving provisions and shaking hands with Varischetti he forced his way back through knee-deep mud, tho task...

THRESHING BARLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907

? ? ? f THRESHING BARLEYj Complaints are so numeryjjfthis sea son amongst malsters rg%grding the in jury done to .tafrTSy in the 'process o£ thre^bAttg- that the question demands careful consideration and investigation. The cause of the mischief has' been traced to the threshing mill and the dressing machinery, the drum of the for mer and the beaters of the barley awner being set too close for the sa'ety o£ the grain. The object in setting the drum of the threshing machine so close is to ensure the complete separation of the grain from she .'.raw, while the similar defect in the case of the awner is attributable to a pardonable desire to thoroughly dress the barley with a view of making it weigh to the best advan tage. Clean threshing and efficient dressing are admittedly highly desirable results, but there seems little doubt- that the ef forts designed tor their attainment been carried '.o the. extrenc^, consequence that chipped oV grains have k*come so plentiful as to seriously de...

THIEVING AS A SPORT. A GANG OF WEALTHY SCH[?] BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907

THIEVING AS A SPORT, A GANG OF WEALTHY SCH4^H BOYS. A tremendous sensation has been caused at Essen by the discovery that thirty pupils of the local royal gymna sium, boys belonging to tho best fami lies of the Rhlneland and Westphalia, are the members of an organised gang of thieves, which for montlis has been plundering the shops of Essen of their costliest wares. The facts came to light (says the 'Daily Mail') ill consequence of a Christmas confession which a member of tho gang made to his parish priest, and a simultaneous confession by an other boy to his parents. No arrests have yet taken place, as the police investigation, owing to the prominence of the families involved, is proceeding with the utmost secrecy. Thirteen of the boys meantime have re ceived official notice of suspension from all royal gymnasiums in Prussia, and this Is undoubtedly tiiu prelude (o wholesale arrests. nicml:crKp9Q^HH^^^^H^HH| l'rom thirteen totini^^^HrtlH^^M^H is a youth of sixteen, whose mind lired...

NURSERY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907

NTJKSEKY NOTES. It is a, positive fact that mothers not seldom come back after the holidays utterly 'played out,' ragged and run down. Paterfamilias and the children have reaped the benefit of the breezes and are in the best of health and sphits; but poor materfamillas feels more jaded by far than when she set out— and looks it. When you come to inquire as to the - — caufce of this state of things (says a contemporary), you will in most cases find it is because the children have been so troublesome. Of course, the whole ' brunt of their naughtiness has to be borne by mamma, and not only that, but she, poor soul, has also to bear the brunt of the landlady's ill-humor when that functionary objects to her ob streperous young lodgers' 'outrageous behavior' on wet days, etc. Papa simply takes himself off to the Ke his pipe in e pier.
