Général News. The Asiatic "Booky." Hie Asiatic learns. A proof of it is given in the illustration. This shows an import ant part of a racecourse scene in India. Th« crowd is a crowd of " punters/' and the two figures towering nbove them are those of tho bookmaker and his clerk. It is a humoroui epiBode and yet it hos its serious side. The Asiatic is a born gambler and, in addition to his own little vices in this direction, readily assimilates those of bis whits brother. The Asiatic booltmnlier hns not a large turnover as thc bets are chiefly in copper. All the same his trade on an occasion such ns shown is brisk, und naturally, and perhaps wisely, everything is on ti cash bnsis.

Remember Your Horse. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 21 December 1907
Remember Your Horse. A horse, like a woman, does not spend hours in choosing a hat or bonnet, but has it choBen for him regardless of style or suit- ability. If the bonnet is out of the fashion it does not in the least matter-on it goes as long as it will protect the animal's head from the sun, regardless of shape or comfort. But there are different styles in horse's hats, as the accompanying illustrations testify. A /.at number of hone's bonnets ar» sold in itt weather in England, and their effect on te animal's beads is often exceedingly ludjr .?.us. The Society for the Prevention of Wuelty to Animals buy the hats by the *ounnd and distrioute them free among ur dumb friends. They are very thank- fully received by the poorer class of horse owners. In different cities different styles pr»i.ü; end many curious designs car. be mn in tho streets of English cities.

How the Chinese make Pearls. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 21 December 1907
How the Chinese make Pearls. - The ingénions Chinese have a method of I making pearls by forcing oysters and other mollucks to work. Ordinarily the oysters only do the work in a haphazard way, but the Chinese make them do it systematically. The formation of a pearl is due to tho pre- sence of a foreign body within the oyster's shell. This irritates the oyster, which de- posits a layer of mother of pearl-or nacre, the substance which lines its shell, upon the offending object. Tho foreign body is thus converted into a pearl, and the longer it remains the larger it becomes. Tearls, it need hardly be added, are the most precious of all jewels, and are rapidly becoming more valuable. The inventor of the pearl-forcing process was Yu-Shun-Yang, who lived in the , province of Tche-Kiang in the thirteenth century. He began his experiments on the fresh-water oysters, which are common in China. One of these reaches an average size-of nineteen inches in length. Occasion- ally natural pearls of...
