Whistling Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 23 December 1907

Whistling Trees. /J i The musical tree found in the West India,' Islands has a peculiarly shaped leaf, andi pods with a split or open edge. The wind? passing through these forms the sound which gives the tree its peculiar name. In Barba-1 dos there is a valley filled with these trees, ' and when the trade winds blow across the island a constant moaning, deep . toned whistle is heard from it, which, in the still hoars of the night, has a very weird and un- ', i pleasant effect. ' A species of »cacia, growing abundantly in? the Soudan, is also called thc whistling tree. ' Its shoots are frequently, by the agency of the larva of insects, distorted in shape and swollen into a globular bladder, from one to two inches in diameter. After the insect hos emerged from a circular hole in the side of ' the swelling, the opening, played upon by i the wind, becomes a musical instrument, .fiul in mai to » iweet-tonei flute.

Canada's Bid for Population. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 23 December 1907

Canada's Bid for Population. The Canadian Government is making strenuous efforts to induce immigration, albeit men are pouring into the dominion by the hundred thousand yearly. One means is by advertising in the English Press that free I farms will be given desirable persons who choose to go out and make Canada their home. The advertisement containing this offer is an artistic thing, the centre of which is the grape leaf shown in the sketch. Above this is the line " Prosperity awaits every wil- ling worker," and below it the following in iormatiou ;-" Free farms of 100 acres. For latest official maps, pamphlets, and fall par- ticulars gratis, apply to the Commissioner for Emigration, ll, 12, Charing Gross, Lon- don." On the left side are two artistio sketches - "Breaking New Land" and "Cattle Ranching" and on the right three others-"Beaping," "Threshing" and a "Settler's Farm." Canada is an immense, country and lacks but one thing to make it' one of the greatest-population. To get! ...

Uncle Sam's Great Floating Dock. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 23 December 1907

Unele Sam's Great Floating Dock. It took theUnited States Government a con- siderable time to get the famous floating dock bf the Spaniards at Havanna into proper working order. In the treaty of peace it was expressely stated that the Spanish Govern-' ment should still own the dock which they had built in England at a cost of £110,000. Later on the Americans offered to bay it, but the authorities at Madrid could not be ap- proached and the middlemen interested wanted within £10,000 of its original value. A wonderful lot of negotiation followed and eventually Spain took £50,000 in gold for it and the dock was handed over to the Ameri- cans. Owing to its having long been out of use the huge concern was in a dilapidated i condition and much of the mechanism was destroyed. To make the best job possible a corps pf engineers was sent over and the . d«ck was righted and rando buoyant again. In this condition it was towed to America where for long the Americans worked on it to render it as ...

Our Miscellany. A Modern Heart Shrine. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 23 December 1907

A Modern Heart Shrine. '-Heart'shrines were in'olden days not un .eommon. Now they are sb rare as to be al- most extinct. Nevertheless: there is' one .heart shrine of some prétentions-that ot Sir Wm. Bagge at SwftKbam, Norfolk. " À heart ; shrine is a special receptacle for .the organ , which is supposed to be the seat, of all the faculties and passions. In the.erection bf one there may pr may not be a good deal of superstition, bat the probability is in favor ol this feeling. The modern heart shrine re (erred to dates back to the year 1880. It is in reality a drinking fountain, but in a hole in one'of the stones is interred the heart of Sir Wm. Bagge. For many years this gentle- man represented the town of Swattbam in Parliament, and he was so attached to it'tbat when dying he begged that his heart might be buried in the main; street. Hence the erection of the shrine' shown in the illustra- tion, which is duly inscribed to his memory although there is nothing said in regard to what...
