ARMY STORES BURNT. THE GREAT PORTSMOUTH FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 4 April 1907
ARMY STORES BURNT. j THE GREAT PORTSMOUTH FIRE. It is estimated that damage to tho ex tent of over L250.000 was done by a fire which occurred on the military section of the Gun Wharf at Portsmouth during the early hours of New Year's morning. The. fire broke out in the camp store de partment (says tho ' Daily Express.') The block of buildings was three hun dred feet long.and contained largequanti ties of equipment for use by troops when under canvas. Hundreds of bales, each containing twenty-five blankets, tents, mattresses, and water-proof sheeting, filled the great building, and an idea of ^heir value will bo gained when it is stated that there was sufficient to enable the whole of the southern command to Imme diately proceed under canvas. ? The flames began about eleven o'clock In the office, and spread with great rapidity. All the available fireextin guishing appliances of the port and the I town were summoned, but the flames, fanned by a strong wind, soon converted the entire b...
MAKING OF PAPERS. AND THINGS THAT PAPER MAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 4 April 1907
MAKING OF PAPERS. AND THINGS THAT PAPER MAKES. While there is nothing like linen for , paper-making, many other things will ' serve as substitutes, explains a French, expert. i For instance, patents have been issued in various countries for the manufacture of paper from barley, oats, rice, Indian corn, peas, beans, alfalfa, ramie, pine needles, sugar-cane refuse, jute, moss, seaweed, tobacco, lichens, the leaves and bark of trees, beets, potatoes, and other equally strange things. In most cases, the author tells us, the price of manu facture is excessive when we ^ consider the quality of the product. The great bulk of our paper — not the best, but that most commonly used — is made,' as most people know, of the wood of certain 1 trees. x j Paper can be made from nearly every thing, and nearly anything can be made from paper. With compressed paper are made wheels, rails, cannon, horse-shoes, polishers for gems, bicycles, asphalted tubes for gas or electric wires. With wood-pulp and z'...

THE MAGIC "TUPPENCE." VALUABLE IN LONDON. BUT NOT THE REGULAR "TIP." [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 4 April 1907
THE MAGIC 'TUPPENCE.' I » I VALUABLE IN LONDON. BUT NOT THE REGULAR 'TIP.' Our foreign and colonial visitors, who come and go in their 5'r;ions every year, all form their own ?.mpressions of London, good or bad, as the case may be. But what they individually think of the city, of its people, its customs, nnd its manners, seldom becomes public property, unless perchance the visitor be a personage of sufficient importance to attract the ubiquitous newspaper in terviewer. Now and again, however, someone .from distant shores gives us j of his own initiative a glimpse of Lon don as others see it. i Occasionally, it must lie confessed, the results are a trifle surprising, and Lou- j doners learn a good deal that is news . to them about their own city. For ex- I ' ample, ft writer in the Sydney 'Bulle- tin' has been telling his fellow colo- | uials that 'tuppence' is the dominating ' sum in London. It is, he says, a na- j tional institution, as much as the war | debt, beer, or football. Wh...

THE DAIRY. GRADING HOME SEPARATOR CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 4 April 1907
THE DAIRY. GRADING HOME SEPARATOR CREAM. What to do to improve the quality ot hand separator cream is one of the most perplexing problems with which the butter makers of to-day are confronted. Those who have given some thought to factory conditions, and who see the need of a high standard of excellence In fac tory products must come to the conclu sion that there is much need of improve ment in the condition of home separator cream. Since the introduction of t'hc home sep arator it has become necessary for but termakers to employ different methods In the manufacture of butter than those for merly used. Pasteurising at once becomes a necessity; for the wide awake butter maker realised that the kind of cream he was receiving could not be made even into fairly good butter without some purifying treatment. This, of course, means a greater investment for .the fac tories for pasteurising machinery, etc., and also calls for greater skill on the part of the butermaker. Now, It seems that the...

VOCAL CULTURE. r X VETERAN'S LECTURE. Dr. Cummings, principal of the Guild . tail School of Music, gave a lecture on vocal culture at a conference of musi cians in Brixton early in England, and is thus reported by an English ex change. The chairman of the morning was Mr Charles Hancock, of Leicester, who in an opening address reminded his audi ence of the prominent place the North Midland section had played in the his tory of the Incorporated Society of Mu Cummings to deal with the subject of vocal culture, on which he was to dis course. In one interesting bit of remi niscence he indulged, when, going back to the early seventies, he recalled a per formance of Bach's St. Matthew Passion ! music in Westminster Abbey, under the late Sir Joseph Barnby, and paid a high tribute to the artistic way in which Dr. Cummings then sang recitatives. 'I sin cerely wish it were possible,' he added, 'for our vocalists of tho present day to receive such a lesson as I then had, for my own experience i...
