EXAMINE THE UDDER. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 11 April 1907

; EXAMINE THE UDDER. A great many men, when judging of a cow's dairy ability, are guided almost by the udder. If that is large and fine they ithink she must be a good cow, no mat ter what the form otherwise is Of course, a good udder generally goes with a good dairy form, but not always. When It does not the cow is either a *nt-M failure as a dairv cow. A cow may have a large udder and give a good quantity of milk for a short time, but. if she has not a good dairy form, she has not the machinery to keep on filling her udder long enough to make her a profitable cow. More men have been deceived by a large udder than by anything else about a cow, because that was almost the only feature they looked at. The buyer should never fail to examine carefully- the udder of every cow he thinks of selecting to see that K is sound; has no paralysed quarters, and gives milk easily and freely from all four of her teats.

STRANGE MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 11 April 1907

STRANGE MISTAKES. When tho Matabelo first saw a locomotive engino at Bulawayo, that anclcnt fortress of heathenism, they declared that it was a large animal which fed on fire; that !t hated work i —or else why did it scream before it moved?— and that it suffered badly from malaria. Did not tho white doctot pour medicine into it whenever it groaned? When the Pigmy bushmen first saw ox waggons they notlcca mat some were hi te nnd somo small; thoy came to the conclusion that tho small waggons were tho dnughtors or tho large. This seems grotesque and absurd until ono remembers that when they had pre viously noted tho spoor of tho wagsonB In tlio Rand they at once deckled that these could only liave been caused by animals, for they had never seen any spoor marks excopt those left by animals. And if tho waggons were animals, why should not the small ones be children of the large? ... More laughable still Is the incident which happened in another tribe. When tho first waggon appeared in tl...

A NEW CAPTAIN KETTLE. AFLOAT AND ASHORE [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 11 April 1907

A NEW CAPTAIN KETTLE. AFLOAT AND ASHORE I From New York on January 13th, the correspondent ot the ' London Ex press ' wrote : — i In the New York police court there appeared this morning a fellow towns man of Captain Kettle, and a sailor after that redoubtable shipmaster's ' own heart. His name is Davis, of Sun derland, and he sailed on December 10 as chief engineer of the oil steamer Hotham Newton, of Middlesbrough, in ballast for New York. The crew were Germans, who grumr bled at everything, and they excited the ire of so staunch a Britisher as Davis, who thought it incumbent on him to show a German crew what a Sunderland sailor could do with them. He is only about half the size of the smallest German, but he has long, powerful arms, and can f«ht. As one of the Germane told the ma gistrate this morning, ' 'E vos 'it us in 'midships, urid vore und aft, und in der stoke'old every day.' Corroborative evidence was given to show that during the greater part of the voyage at least, one ...

SAVOY REVIVAL. "THE GONDOLIERS." [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 11 April 1907

SAVOY REVIVAL. ' 'THE GONDOLIERS.' ? Iferdly less enthusiastic a welcome than hailed .the beginning q£ the Savoy revivals with . 'The Yeoman of the Guard' awaited last: night (22nd January), Mrs X-'Oyly Carte's re vival o £ 'The Gondoliers.' As has already been noted, these de lightful revivals at the old Savoy are bringing back to the theatre a public of. educated middle-class people- with genuine musical tastes whom tho musi cal comedy of a few years back practic-1 ally drove away. Mrs D'Oyly Carte has, herself remarked that the numbers which 'go' best aro not so much the solos as^ the harmonised trios, quartettes and so' on. These in. Sullivan's hands, as Savoy-goers are recalling, havo a musi cal quality one may search in vain for elsewhere. From the musical poir.t o£ view, 'The Gonrlt! ers' proved itspif perhaps even more o£ a feast than- did 'The Yeoman , of the Guard.' It is alike more ambitious and more inspiring with its glorious choi uses and dances, Its r.ovr and its at -...

THE 'ABSTINENCE' VICTORY. SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND GAINED. Eugno Anderson, of'Katonah, U.S., has just acquired a fortune of LGOO.OOO by the exercise of self-restraint. Anderson's father died several years ago, leaving his estate so tied that the trustees had considerable discretion in administering it. They refused to trans was an inebriate who could not be trusted to manage the property. Ander son promised them to reform, and the trustees told him to show his earnest ness by remaining sober for a year. | He undertook the task, and failed. He kept away from drink for several months, but yielded then, and when he had sobered had to begin again. The trustees and his friends encouraged him, and he tried only to fail again. At last, on 1st September, of last year, he com pleted a year of total abstinence. This would have satisfied his trustees, but it did not satisfy Anderson. He in sisted on further proof of his own will power, and it was not till he had beon sober sixteen months that he d...

AFTER THE INTERVAL 3 By EVELYN FLETCHER. CHAPTER I. . 'Oh, Betty, here you are at last! How late you are, and how delicious it is to see you again!' cried Edith Langdale, rushing out as my cab drew up at the dcor of the vicarage. Edith Langdale was evidently every bit as impetuous as ? Edith Denton had been: marriaere — and marriage with a middle-aged person, too — had not sobered her in the least. 'Yes, I'm late, I know; the trains were all wrong. Did you by any chance look them up out of last year's Bradshaw?' I asked with a laugh. She was not at all put out. 'Oh, very likely! but I thought you would be sure to check them. However, it doesn't matter as you are here. I began to be afraid you wouldn't be in time for the ball to-night; but if you make haste ? ' ' A ball to-night. Must I go?' 'To be sure you must.

WHEN FOOD IS DANGEROUS. POISONING POSSIBLE FROM SOUND MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 11 April 1907

WHEN FOOD IS DANGEROUS. POISONING POSSIBLE FROM SOUND MEAT. Mr Jus'tlce BuekniU and a jury were treated in the King's Bench Division (London) on January 16th, -to a learned dissertation on the difference between 'meat poisoning' and ptomaine poison ing during the trial of the suit by Mrs Anna M. Cole against Mr Arthur Vince, a butcher, for damages for the death of , ' her husband which, she alleged, was caused by eating unsound pork. , The lecturer was Dr George Augustus - Garry Simpson, who was medical offi cer of health for Acton for many years, and who is now a threat specialist. He was called as an expert witness for the defence. Dr Simpson said that if the meat was so 'bad as to cause ptomaine poisoning on the Tuesday when it was eaten, it ought to have been absolutely putrid on J the Saturday when he saw it, but. on J the contrary, it was quite fresh, and he ? could not detect any odor. He also de- H clared that a burning sensation in tne ? throat, which Mrs Cole said was one ...
