UNFORTUNATE BABIES. IN ENGLAND AS HERE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 9 May 1907

UNFORTUNATE BABIES. IN ENGLAND AS HERE. Mr. Baxter, a coroner in London, ad 'ie=sed some strong remarks to several mothers whose babic-s had died from con vulsions, set up by improper feeding. In two eases ' boiled biscuits' had been given, .and in one instance ' broth and bread. . - The coroner said that probably as wo got older we got wiser, but it took a precious long time to teach mothers how to feed their children. It was not aston ishing tli.it so many children died young, when they heard what they had been fed upon. , .rl! Mothers might just as well givg their babies- ' (lint's and :t in tacks ' as bis cuits, boiled bread, and other unsuitable food. - THE ACTION FILER. ART OF G UNMAKING.

THE POULTRY YARD. SELECTING A MALE BIRD. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 16 May 1907

THE POULTRY YAriD. SELECTING A MALE BIRD. One of the opinions often heard i3 that increased laying is easiest ob tained by crossing two varieties of poultry, and the usual explanation is that the new blood thus obtained in vigorates the forthcoming generation. This sounds reasonable (says a writer in the American Agriculturist), and so the practice of :;wopping roosters with different neighbors is continued, and the new blood is introduced every ? year or two. But if the theory sounds reasonable, the results are far from satisfactory. Sometimes there seems to be a decided improvement, but this, in my opinion, may be attributed to any one or all of the following causes: — The male has been secured from a heavy laying, strain; he is in better physical condition than the home birds, or has not been allowed to get into or been forced into habits which lead to lack of vigor, inaction, or laziness; he may mate with those hens which have shunned the male of the previous J'ear, but which he...

TO FRANCE BY FERRY. ANOTHER SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 16 May 1907

TO FRANCE BY FERRY. ANOTHER SCHEME. Lord Wcardale, who presided at the first ordlnarv general meeting of . the Channel Ferry (Dover) Company, at Cannon street Hotel, on 26th February, contrasted the company's project with that of tjie Channel Tunnel. The ferry scheme, he said, would involve the ex penditure of only one million pounds, as compared with fifteen, or probably ?twenty, millions for the tunnel construc tion. ? They proposed to adopt a system which was already in vogue in different parts of the Continent and in America, where ferry boats were run on most suc cessful commercial lines, and with safety to the public, over strips of water twenty and thirty miles across. They proposed to apply a similar system to the English Channel, and he believed that It would prove very successful and highly remu nerative. i It would furnish an admirable service for the conveyance especially of all perishable goods, and in a less degree would prove of the greatest convenience to the travell...

THE GOURMETS. A SOHO HEN PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 16 May 1907

THE GOURMETS. A SOHO HEN PICTURE. ' I - Perhaps you know it, this resta iran'J of the gourmets, with its pot-au-fue, its gigot de mouton, and its pom mos sautes. If you do not, you have missed one of the delights of London, and, incident ally, you have missed a very cheap meal. For the gourmets who frequent this restaurant are not -wealthy. Ar- . lists, actors, clerks, a few gentlemen who are of the official world, and a few ladles who, are not, these are the pa- | trons of the establishment. They come hero; for their dejeuner, or for their dinner, arid ask for the dishes in the most Parisian of French- — some ot them. They reckon the cost of it even in sous — some of them. The accent of the others is that of Stratteford-a tte- Bowe, and they are content to know what- their bill totals in shillings and pence. It is a peculiarity of the restaurant of the gourmet* that only French and Eng lish people seem to visit it. I have never seen a German there, and only once ail- Italian. But h...

The circuit .system is simply this : Three — or, in a ' few cases, four — times a year the King issues com missions to certain judges of the High Court- and certain King's counsel and other officials to g° into the counties to hear disputes and try criminals.

THE MAN WITH THE ROSE. CLEVER TRAP LAID BY DETEC TIVES. CASHIER THREATENED. An arrest on a grave charge of black mailing was made in Manchester, yester day afternoon (26th February), under circumstances which were at once dra matic and exciting. The story begins on Monday. On that day a young man entered the establishment of Messrs Lewis, in Market street, the most crowd ed thoroughfare in tlJe city, and asked to see Mr Cohen, tf|e cashier. He was directed to that gentleman, and, pushing a letter into his hand, hurried from the shop. The letter is slated to have con tained threats of a blackmailing charac ter. Mr, Cohen, it stated, 'was shadowed more completely than any detectives could do,' and if he failed to carry outthe instructions given him he would meet with the same fate ns Mr Stanford White in America an9 Mr William Whiteley in London. The instructions were quite plain. Mr Cohen, wearing a white rose in . his but tonhole, was to go to the steps ot the Mosley Hotel, Piccadil...

DOMESTIC ECONOMY. AS A MAN WIPETH. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 16 May 1907

DOMESTIC ECONOMY. AS A MAN WIPETH. There is a citizen of the fair suburb of Florence who is being impressed into un willing and shaghaied under^ false pre tence. It appears that this man was besought by the wife of his bosom to wipe the dishes, and when he had answered this unreasonable request in suitable terms the preverse woman brought out the Holy Scriptures to show him that the wiping of dishes Is a man's proper vocation. She cited him to II. Kings, xxi. 13, wherein the Lord, speaking by his servants and prophets, says: 'And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria and the plummet of the house of Ahab; and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.' We do not opine that this is a case tor a rescue expedition or any violent mea sures, for a man may wipe dishes, and still live, although it is a rather hope less an-3 subdued existence. A man who wipeth a dish or two and turneth the same upside down, under the shade ot his own fig t...
