'''*323 ? DEEPEST WET DOCK. ' SOUTHAMPTON'S GLOWING PROS-, TECTS. i At a meeting of the ^Southampton Harbor Board on the afternoon of 15th January the London anil South- Western Ttnilwav Go's scheme to extend the facilities of the port, by the construc tion of the deepest wet dock in tho United Kingdom was considered. The company's plans provide for the re clamation of n portion of the River Test to enable them to make a new dock sufficiently large to accommodate tho largest liners afloat. In moving the adoption of the Works Committee's recommendation approving ilie South Western proposals, Mr Bono explained that tlie suggested extension would increase the trade of the port and harbor. The dues from the four White Star liners alone would, nt a rough calculation, amount to L1500 a year. .Mr Bone, proceeding, said he had grounds for saying that not only the White Star and Cunard liners would come to Southampton sooner or later, but that other companies were ap proaching the Dock Compa...

Why have horses to be smeared . . every time they come from the beach swamps to Billinudgel, whilst those coming alone the Tweed road aro required to be smeared once la week, though the traffic is a thousandfold ? Why is the beach left open for traffic from Cudgen ;to South Aus- ?«; tralia, if need be H What is the use of keeping a gate at Billinudgel when a mile below that gate there are three crossings between the canal and Strikalight ? From Strikalight to Brunswick Heads the North Arm is fordable almost anywhere at low water for riding or driving, whilst the main '? aim is erossable at what is known as the middle ground crossing.

A MERE CHANCE. By H. HUNTER. There was a block in Piccadilly, and Stanley Wilson suddenly found himself brought up in front of a lady who had just emerged from a tea-shop near tho Circus. ' For a moment — for the merest fraction of a momentt — they looked into each other's eyes. Then the lady, gathering her skirts in her hand, moved rapidly away. She went in the direction of the Park. The man turned and watched her till she was lost in the crowd. Her figure seemed familiar. She re minded him of — someone. WT10 was It now she reminded him of? — His memory went back — back over a long stretch of years, till he caught himself muttering disjolntedly: 'No — surely not! And yet Entering the shop which she had just quitted he called for a. cup of coffee.

RUSSIAN MAN-WOMAN. MARRIED THREE TIMES. REMARKABLE STORY OF DECEPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 4 April 1907

RUSSIAN MAN- WOMAN. - ' \ MARRIED THREE TIMES. ' » REMARKABLE STORY OF DECEPr TION. The remarkable fact that Nicolas - de t .,. . . Raylan, once Secretary to the Russian Consulate, Chicago, was really a woman is now officially admitted. De Raylan, for some reason best known to herself, left Russia disguised t-3 a man, and as a man there is abundant testimony to prove she lived ever since, even marrying three times without ap- / . parentlv undecnivlnn- 'his' ivivos. This is explained by the statement that De i Raylan suffered from consumption, and there was an ante-nuptial pact in each case providing that the couple should live 'as man and wife in name only.' According to medical testimony re ceived on Saturday, De Ravlan carried the- deception of hei dual personality to : ? the brink of the grave, and only after death was the secret disclosed. Baron Schlippenbach, Russian Consul at Chicago, who at first refused to be- . Heve rhc story, is now convinced, and said: ' The De Ravlan mys...

SHOULD WHITE WED YELLOW? JAPAN WANTS MIXED MARRIAGES. ; An address delivered at the Nippon Club in New York by Mr Aokl, the Japanese Ambassador. urging his countrymen to marry American women, is typical of many recent Japanese ut terances to the same effect. Mr Aokl congratulated those members of the club who had American wives. A Japanese reporter's translation of Ills speech included this remark: 'Make yourselves worthy of the love of millionaires' (laughters, and when your fathers-in-law become aware of your merits they will asssist you in every way possible.' | The advantages of such marriages t from the Japanese point of view and their drawbacks for Americans are noticed in a letter from a Tolcio resident (Ryogoku) In the 'Japan Times' of 10:h November: — 'It is generally admitted by the Japan ese themselves that, physically, they are inferior to their western neighbors. On an average a Japanese adult is about the size of a sixteen-year-old toy in America. The offspring resulti...
