A PARISIAN SENSATION. THE SPITZEN-HANNE DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907
A PARISIAN SENSATION. THE SPITZEN-HANNE DUEL. Speculation as to the cause of the qvar rei between Lieutenants Spitzer and Hanne is vain, writes the Paris corres pondent of the London 'Daily Tele graph.' The latter officer told the chief of the Criminal Detective Department that it was useless to attempt to fathom the mystery, as principals and seconds had pledged their word not to reveal it. It is, however, particularly worthy o£ note that the challenge emanated from M. Splizer. M. Hanne says that on De cember 31st Lieutenants Mandre and Niel called at his dwelling at Neuilly, from which he had been absent since Christmas Day, and that on his return home that evening he found a letter awaiting him in which they asked to be placed in communication with two of his friends He was reluctant to fight with a com rade with whom he had been on inti mate terms since his childhood, and ho instructed his seconds to do their ut most to avert a meeting, but their ef forts were vain, as a duel wa...

AMERICAN CRIMINAL LAW. THE THAW TRIAL. NEW YORK COURT PROCEDURE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907
AMERICAN CRIMINAL LAW. THE THAW TRIAL. NEW YORK COURT PROCEDURE. The Thaw trial is attracting general attention on account of the extraordinary condition of the Ameri can Criminal law. A writer in tho London ' Daily Express' thus comments upon it : — Had the murder been committed in j London, Mi- Thaw would have had to await the finding of the CoronSr's ] jury at tho inquest, a-nd at this in quiry all the circumstances of the murder would have been gone into extensively. Then he would have ap peared before a police magistrate, and the whole case would have boon, gone over again with great care. A u the end of this examination he wo'.kl j have been .committed for trial at the ! Old Bailey, and there he would have j to undergo another exhaustive trial, at which all the evidence heard bo- | fore the Coroner and the police magistrate would have to be repeat ed once more. . In New York, the preliminary stages at least are managed much more expeditiously. The Coroner's J inquest hnd reall...

JAPAN AND THE POWERS. MASTERY OF THE WESTERN PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907
JAPAN AND THE POWERS. MASTERY OF THE WESTERN PACIFIC. The 'Morning Post' of the 1st ult. states: — 'We must congratulate ourselves that our allies possess a Government which is not only able but anxious to connect ?these two ideas— peaceful relations with foreign Powers and the continuous de velopment and perfection of ' national defence. At the same tjme we cannot fail to note with considerable interest and a little anxiety the extent to which recent events have brought Japan into the arena of what used to be considered Occidental politics. The occasions of friction — collision is too strong a word as yet— have so far followed a logical and consistent line. Looked at broadJy, they are all connected with the central fact of Japan's ambitions for the mas tery of the Western Pacific. 'She alieady commands the chief trade routes to Northern China. The strategic importance of Formosa was the real reason for its annexation at great ex pense by Japan, and this although it does not possess...

DETERIORATION OF WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907
DETERIORATION OF WOOL. Deterioration of wool is due to many causes, most of which are known to breeders of stud sheep. In a paper read at a meeting of the Gunning Pastoral and Agricultural Association, New South Wales, Mr E. H^ Turner put for ward a new causa for deterioration. He says that agricultural shows have had more to do in deteriorating the quality and standard of our wool than any other agency he knew. Such a statement is naturally startling, inasmuch as it has been contended — and rightly so — thit shows, through their educational facili ties, had raised the standard of sheep breeding considerably. Mr Turner bjses his opinion thus: — 'Oniookers at shutys saw a type of sheep which took their fancy, obtained some of the same blood, mostly in the shape of a sire, and crossed it with their own sheep without consi dering whether the cross was to result as they desired. There must be a cer tain amount of homogeneity between sire and dam to be assured of fixed and even results. ...
HEALTH. HOW IT MAY BE ATTAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907
HEALTH. !? | r, HOW IT MAY BE ATTAINED. 'Not one man in a thousand has time to keep himself in the best possible phy sical condition.' So writes Dr. Luther Gulick, the director of physical training in the public schools of New York; and he explains, in 'World's Work,' some of the secrets of attaining health without becoming a faddist. The kind of exercise, he says, that hits the mark, is the kind a man likes. The good a man gets out of a brisk ride in the park is something more than what comes simply from the activity of his muscular system or from- the effect of the constant jolting upon the digestive organs. There is the stimulus to the whole system which comes from his fill ing his lungs with fresh, out-of-door air._ There is the exhilaration of sunshine and blue sky, and of the wind on the skin. There i the excitement of controlling a restive animal. Nearly all diseases and most pains come from bad nutrition; hence the chief law of health is to eat the right food in thc right qu...
HIT, HURT, HAMPER. COLLEGE BOWL FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907
HIT, HURT, HAMPER. COLLEGE BOWL FIGHT. Certainly there is nothing to approach ! such a savage spectacle as the annual 'bowl' fight at Pensylvania University in America. This sporting event took place recently, and though the struggle and many accidents were treated as1 a matter of course by five hundred stu dents engaged in the game, it was of a sufficiently blodthirsty nature to make j an average Britisher wonder just what manner o £ persons some of the Ameri cans of to-day are. The most destruc tive of American football battles are as j gentle as ping-pong compared to a j 'bow!' fight. / i To give an idea of what happened, it I is necessary to describe 'the methods of the game, which is an old institution at j 'F*;nn.' The first year men, or fresh men, oppose the older students, or 'so- phomores,' as thev term them in the States. As it happened this year, the 200 'sophomores' were outnumbered by nearly a hundred freshmen, who for a' second time in the history of the fight were awa...

in is a air cosiness about the place is an agreeable change from tlie (^Krnosphere withdut. The seating accom modation is plain, but ample. The in spector in charge is standing at a small desk at the far end of the room, and the prisoner's bar is on the right-hand side. As we enter, a lady, who speaks bro ? ken English with a German accent, issit- ting on a side seat, while another lady, also with a German accent, explains that the lady on the seat has made a mistake in the 'matter o£ three half-crowns. It is a 'tangled skein to unravel, even with the assistance of a youth whose English is more broken and whose accent is more German than that of the ladies, and the inspector seems rather relieved when two constables enter, bringing with them a young man of a rough type, with a very white face, a very black moustache, and no hat. The young man, though he resents support, seems to require it, as the steel bar is lifted and he is placed behind it to listen to the charge preferred again...
A RURAL "POSTWOMAN." SIXTY-SIX MILES A WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 28 March 1907
A RURAL 'P0STW0MAN.' SIXTY-SIX MILES A WEEK. In a little thatched cottage at Newn ham — a hamlet some three miles from Baldock, Herts — lives Mrs Clark, the village postmistress and 'postman.' Few are the parishes in this country whose I letters and parcels are delivered by a woman. As a letter carrier, therefore, Mrs Clark can boast of being in an ex ceptional position. But she has other claims to distinction besides. Newn Iham's -postmistress, in fact, is a very ex ceptional woman. She is in her sixty seventh year, her daily rounds iritolve sixty-six miles' walking every week, she performs besides the simple duties en tailed by her as the village postmistress, and she is as hale and hearty, to all seeming, as anybody at her age could reasonably hope to be. In a word, Mrs Clark is a very remarkable woman. Yet it can be no joke, at any age, earn ing one's living as Mrs Clark earns hers. It may be the 'simple life.' But it is strenuous enough, for all that, in its way. Fortunately fo...

The process of dis afforestation was begun by King John In 1201, when all that portion lying to the north of the high road from Stortford to Colchester, roughly about one-third of the whole county, was taken out of the forest. Much felling of timber was done -,h^^'|^rjnrrirnisisoncrs of Woods and to have

SMALL DEBTS COURT. Tuesday, 19th March, before the P.M. and Mr. C. E. Simpson, J.P. H. French v. Mrs. Rosina O'Neill^ claim for commission, £7 19s 6d. This case was heard at the last Court, and the decision reserved to enable thc Bench to look up authorities on the. matter. The evidence of the plaintiff was to the effect that defend ant placed certain land in his hands for sale, and that he interested him self in trying to get a. buyer. The land was subsequently withdrawn from him and sold by defendant to the person that he introduced it - to; and he therefore claimed commission on the sale. Thc defendant admitted having given the land into defend ant's hands, but slated that as he failed to secure a buyer within a reasonable time she saw him and withdrew iO Some little time after wards Dr. Connor approached her on tho matter, and she subsequently sold the ,land to him, and as she had previously withdrawn it from plain tiff's hands she did not recognise him in t'/w matter. : The Ben...
