SIMPLON TUNNEL. GRAVE CATASTROPHE FEARED. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
SIMFLON tunnel. GRAVE CATASTROPHIC FEARED. On 26th November the Geneva corres pondent of the London 'Daily News' wrote:—. The official report on the condition, of the Simplon Tunnel, which has just been issued, states that the temperature in the centre is still 113 degrees, and that boiling water continues to (low at the rate -of about seventy-eight gallons per second. The engineers agreed that masonry was necessary in the entire central roof of the tunnel, as they doubted whether the natural vault would bear the heat and enormous pressure of 2145 yards of the mountain. Tlie question has been raised whether the masonry will prove a sufficient support, or whether it will melt, and by its added weight bring about a catastrophe. Still another danger has now been I noted. As tho mountains above become covered with snow, the volume of water in the tunnel shows a tendency to in crease.'* Piles of rails, sleepers, tele phone and telepraph wires are lying at both entrances of the tunnel, an...

The Backward Clarence. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
The Backward Clarence. At a^bUf^uet in Grafton last jpf'eek, Mr. E. McGuren re sponded to the toast of ' Pros perity to the District ' and said' the people' of the Clarence should have more faith in it. That was the ^keynote of all prosperity which had come to, the Clarence. The first seri ous attempt at settlement on the North Coast was on this river. At one time the Claiv ence was the North Coast. Not many years ago— he could - remember it, and, no doubt, many others present could also remember it — the rivers to the north of them were a « no ' man's land.' People went there and ran away , again. And yet they had this extraordinary position that, while the districts to - the north and south were rapidly forging ahead, the Clarence was standing still. They were .^thead of us m, every way, and ^\there was no use disguising the fact. The attention of Australia was being directed to the districts to the north and south, but passing the Clarence by. There must be a reason for this. Wha...
A Great Flood. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
A Great Flood. A copy of an official record of Australian floods and droughts covering the year 1788 to 1878 was published in a Dictionary of Dates printed in Sydney 27 years ago. During this period of 90 years there were numer ous freshes and floods and several heavy? floods. The only 'greiit ' flood chronicled in the record, however took place in 1806, exactly 100 years ago. The year in ques tion was preceded by several years of drought, The fol lowing are several entries dealing with the years fof drought : — 'Hot winds ; birds dropped dead from trees, and everything burnt tip ; stream of water suppling Sydney nearly dried up.' Several crops of wheat at Parramatta in spite of drought.'-—Bush fires, drought, grass burnt up, cattle in gre^t distress.' In connec tion with , the great good of 1806, the following entry ap pears in the record : 'Most des t tractive overflowing of the river, Hawkesbury; 6000 bushels of corn destroyed ; 100 persons, men, women, and children, who had take...

SIR HENRY PONSONBY'S COURTESY. I With reference to the well-known custom which obtains at Court of ' sending a polite message of inquiry as to the safe return of the company after (i 'Command' performance, an entertaining sto:-'y (according to tho ?'Westminster Gazette') is told of the late Sir Henry' Ponsotiby, the official charged with this du ty during the latter part of her late Majesty's reign!

KOREAN ETIQUETTE. The New York correspondent of the London 'Express' states that Min j . Yueng, the late Korean Minister in i Prance, is in doubt whether etiquette I requires him to commit, suicide. When ? One arrived in New York the news was gfi-ntly broken to him by some of his ! countrymen that his brother, Prince Min, had killed himself at Seoul owing to the Emptor having plac:d his country under Japanese control. Min Yueng was over come with grief for a moment, and then asked if tlie Japanese had not murdered him. He was assured that the Prince's act was quite voluntary, and was askeu if the event would have any effect upon his own fate. Min Yueng admitted that, '? according to ancient practice, he ought likewise to take his own life. He ad mitted that the custom was obsolete, but declined to say that he had no intention n'f committing suicide. .A barrister correspondent, referring to the remark by a member of the National Home Reading Union that Mrs Gaskell is wrong in Mary Ba...
HELPFUL HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
HELPFUL HOPE. What could be more helpful than hope; to the last day of our lives are we not all led forward by tho lady with the star above her brow? Let us cease to hope for an ultimate beautiful happiness, and what would be left to any of us?

INSURANCE AGAINST HURRICANES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
INSURANCE AGAINST HURRI CANES. According to the 'Westminster Ga zette,' arrangements have now been made at Lloyd's through Messrs. Henry Head and Co., to give effect to the scheme for insurance against hurricanes in tho Island of Dominica, formulated by his Honor H. Heskoth Bell, the Ad ministrator. Two rates have been quo te^— one lor insurance against Hur ricanes, the other against damage caused by seismic or volcanic disturbances and the insurance will cover all kinds of produce except bananas. The rates will work out between 1V4 and 2 per cent., the former for insurance against hurri canes, the latter for hurricanes or vol canic disturbances. Against volcanic disturbances alone the rate will be about % per cent. The same firm has been ap proached with regard to extending the scheme to Porto Rico, and it is expected that other colonies in the hurricane zone will , follow Dominica's example.
TWO REVOLUTIONS A COMPARISON. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
TWO REVOLUTIONS A COMPARISON. Mr G. K. Chesterton writes, in tho London 'Daily News':— ? Some days ago I found Fleet street blocked with a dreadful procession, the long file of the hungry men of England. As I looked my mind was, I am afraid, comparatively little exercised with the ordinary aspects of what is called the problem of the unemployed, for to mo the chief problem of the unemployed is why they do not hit me in tho eye. Nor is this line of speculation wholly un fruitful. As I stared at that heart -fending pageant I saw a few of the old banners of the various local leagues, but nothing with an element of origin ality or defiance, until at last I saw hoisted in the middle of tho ordinary line a strange thing. It was a rod flag, with a skull and cross-bones. And there came over me suddenly an awful sense of the weakness in modern revolutions; their weakness is their pessimism. I thought of all the screaming and rag ged men who carried the tricolor in the French Revolution. Thei...
MOUNTAIN OF POTATOES. "RADIUMS" AT L70 A TON. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
MOUNTAIN OF POTATOES. 'RADIUMS' AT L70 A TON. | 'It has very shallow eyes, a beautiful white flesh, and cleanly habits' That was how an official oC the National Potato Show, at the Horticultural Hall, Westminster, described a prize potato to a 'Daily News' representative yes terday I The right way to grow potatoes has been mastered by a Scotch grower named Gemmell, of Hamilton, N.B., who planted in the soil this year one solitary potato which produced a marvellous crop of 222 tubers, weighing 431b. This is the record produce of .a single root. The same grower exhibited a basket of po'.a toes weighing 1471b from a dozen roots. There is no 'spoof' about these remark able -crops, as the potatoes have to be dug up in the presence of witnesses. The biggest potato in the show, called 'Table Talk,' reposed majestically in a silken basket, and weighed 411b 4oz. It looked like a massive flint. The smallest, about the size of a cherry-stone, was shown in a glass case. A novelty was the diseas...
A WORTHY SON. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
'V A WORTHY SON. Young Theodore Roosevelt, son of the President, played his first big game of American football on 18th November, as a member of the Harvard Freshmen's Eleven against Yale. He fought stub bornly on until near the finlth (saya the ?New York correspondent of th» 'Tele- graph'), when he was borne oil the tieid with both eyes blackened, his nose hurt, ! both shoulders covered with bruises, nnd both shins skinless. The 10,00C specta tors cheered the youngster's pluck, de claring enthusiastically that I10 la a. worthy son of a worthy father.
A THREE-HANDED PICKPOCKET. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
A THREE-HANDED PICK POCKET. A clever arrest, states the Berlin cor respondent of the 'Telegraph,' was ef fected the other day at Friedrichstrasse '- railway station. A '.detective stationed there had his eye on a man who frequent ? ly approached ladles' pockets. One hand of this Individual was in his coat pocket and the other, faultlessly gloved, hung by his side, and over his shoulder a rug was carelessly flung- Tho detective; to his surprise, noticed that the person in question, on approaching ladies, thrust, 'out a third- hand from under his rug. - Wishing more closely to pursue his ex amination of this abnormal being, he ar . rested him, when it was discovered that the gloved hand, with arm attached, was of wood, and ingeniously suspended from ?-the side to represent the real hand, . which was otherwise engaged. The mag ' istrate thought ten months' imprison ment was. not. too .heavy .a sentence.

PAGEANT OR BUFFER. THE LORD MAYOR'S SHOW. . LT' AN OBSERVER'S REFLECTIONS. K Tho other day I happened to be walk - Ing along Northumberland avenue when (says a writer In the J'Dally News') 1 suddenly remembered that In a couple of hours' time the Lord, Mayor's Show might bo expected to pass this way. i Glowing with a sense of paternal b-?ne- . volence, I hastened to a post office, and there despatched a lengthy tela iram to an address which need not be specified. This deed being accomplished, there was nothing for It but to await events. Sub . sequent Inquiry proved that the mes : - sage had thrown an orderly land re spectable household into chaos. There had to be a perilously quick lunch, fol lowed by an Intoxicating ride in a han som, -which was always being turned ? down side streets because of the block . in what, with his growing vocabulary, ?the young hopeful called 'straffln.' y ' These various detours had, like the tele gram, to be paid for, and a sense of money flowing like...
THE EDUCATIONAL VALUE OF TRANSLATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906
THE 'EDUCATIONAL VALUE OF TRANSLATIONS. j -Was it not to be hoped that in modern schools, as they were called, or in the modern sides of classical schools, the' use of good translations of the great writers of 'old might become a recognised part of our educational system, and that the Modern Director oi' Studies, knowing in his own-heart the many dry places nnd the' frequently lax organisation of his loosely-compacted empire, and knowing also that the grand literatures of Greece -and Rome possessed a force, a richness. - a purity, a reserve, a tender grace, a bracing and regenerating tonic that no cultured spirit should either lack or ignore, would boldly take translations in ' his hand, and proclaim, with the hlgh - ; stepping egoism of a Canning, 'I called into existence the old world to redress the balance of the new.' — So writes Dr Butler, at Newnham College, Cambridge,
