PICKPOCKETS AND POLITICS. CHINESE DISAPPEARING TRICK. -.The spccial correspondent of the ' Daily Mail' .wrote from Johannes burg on 14th January : — Johannesburg has its faults. But duincss is not one .of them. In its twenty years of strenuous lifo it. has made more history, witnessed more excitement than many a town whoso record goes back two hundred. It abhors the commonplace. Most i communities faced by a popular elec tion for the first time in their his tory would have been content to fol lojv traditional methods. Not so Johannesburg. Unaccustomed as it is j to a Parliamentary campaign, it . strives tc impart some novelty to its | politics. It strikes out a lino of its , own. Ordinary towns have rowdy | electioneering gatherings.

WEALTHY TRAMP. STARVATION WITH LI, 200. ' LEFT TO RELIEVING OFFICER. isobody over thought that Mrs Char lotte Spiers, an old woman of 74, who for years had wandered about Hamp shire, was any better off than the ave l'iingc tramp, and consequently the treatment meted out to her was not over-charged with kindness. One day, however, the Mr Edward English, the relieving officer at Alton workhouse, lent an ear to tho aged dame's appeal for a lift, and took her in his trap as far as she wanted to go. From this time the two frequently met . on the road, and Mr English on several occasions gave the woman relief, for which she appeared very grateful. She showed her gratitude in a very substantial way by leaving him all she possessed, which amounted, to the as tonishment of everybody to H.213. 1 A second claimant appeared, nnd the rival claims were discussed on Friday in tho Probate Court. The plaintiff claim to be a nephew, and asks that the money left by his aunt shall bo handed over to him...

A NEW STERILISED' MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 2 May 1907

? I A NEW STERILISED MILK. The problem of freeing milk from gorms and yet retaining all Its nourish ing properties has probably been solved by Drs. Roemer and Much, both of whom have been associated with Professor Behring in his ^bacteriological work. The process -consists In the use of por ua lue ui nyuruijeu uuuvr uiNi-uiLiuua which kill the germs. To each litre of milk Is added two to four drops of a ferment obtained from beef liver from which the blood has been expressed. This ferment, whioh contains minute particles of albumen, destroys the un pleasant taste given -to the milk by the peroxide of hydrogen. To the forty grammes of albumen contained In one litre of milk under normal conditions, there are, therefore, added minute quantities of homologous albumen. 'Perhydrase milk,' as it is tilled, does not materially differ from rqw milk. ? It can, however, be kept for a long period without deteriorating. Samples of the milk which wore placid in an incubator for seven weoks re mai...
