Calve may marry a man who has recently lost his sight recalls instances of unions between the sighted and the blind which have had tha happiest results.

Campbell, the lion-hearted Principal of the Normal School for the Blind at Upper Norwood, never finds his blindness an hindrance Ho rides, rows, cycles, and climbs moun tains, and describes his adventures with all the picturesque enthusiasm of a man who has seen for himself,. ?

BUSINESS METHODS IN FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 18 April 1907
BUSINESS METHODS IN FARMING. An important address was delivered at the last meeting of the Farmers' Na- - tlonal Congress, Wisconsin, U.S.A., by Mr L. W. Watkin, who dwelt at length upon the absence of co-operation am ongst farmers in the business of hand ling their crops when ready for mar ket. The farmer, he said, is tho most neipiess, haphazard salesman in me business world to-day. As proof of the weak, unbusiness-Iikc management of sales in farm produce, it is only neces sary to call attention to the fact that in practically no instance is the farmer al lowed to deal directly with the retailer or manufacturer, who enhances the value of his goods, or with the real consumer, even though the latter buys the product of the farm unchanged. No accredited agent represents the farm in market with prices on his goods, but the products are sold to speculators at the price the latter fix; or are consigned to middle-men, whose interests and efforts are equally divided between the seller und...

Hi The Byron* Bay Jetty. (From the ' Chronicle.') The Richmond and Tweed Council of Progress Associations has, since its inception, done some remarkable things — in more senses than one. No one, however, look it so seriously as to imagine that one of its members would attempt to make it a stepping linnnrc Si, nil nevertheless, lias proved to be the case, for last week Mi'. J. B. Mit chell, of the Cliannon, threw down the gauntlet and challenged Mr. G. T, Hindmarsh to political combat. The trouble arose out of an inno cent looking letter from the Under Secretary for Works, re the Council's request ior a reconsideration of the improvements to Byron Bay jetty, in which it was stated tho request could not bo entertained, and tlmt a T end, if constructed, would not withstand the sea, and would not only be de stroyed itself, but would Jprobably ? take away portion of the jetty with it.
