LITTLE ROYAL CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906

LITTLE ROYAL CHILDREN. I Next to their own mother, there is nothing that tho Princess of Wales's I little people love so much as a chat with their aunts,' and they are never tired of hearing all about their girlhood, says the writer of an article in 'Cas- sell's Saturday Journal.'- Sometimes I when they are out shopping together, tney are torn now lortunaie uiey axe iu be allowed to do what grandmamma did not permit her own children to do. Until her marriage, it was tho rarest thing for the Duchess of Fife to go out shopping also, and one of tho earliest delights of her new life was to drive round the town, buying little knick knacks for-her home. A couple of years ago when Princess Victoria was ' staying near Penrith, she went into a music shop, and observed a crowd of young sters gazing with open mouths at a bundle of whistles. Remembering the wistfulness with which in her own girl | hood she used to peer in at the shop windows, she offered to buy a whistle for each of the childre...

ONLY A BOY. I am only a boy, with a heart light and free; I am brimming with mischief and frolic and ' Bloc. ! I dance with delight, and I whistle and sing, : And you think such a boy never cares for a i thing. But boys havo their troubles, though jolly they ] seem: ! Their thoughts can go further than most people deem, Their hearts are as open to sorrow as joy, I And each has his feelings, though only a boy. ! Now, oft when I've worked hard at piling the wood, Have done all my errands, and tried to bo good, I think then I might have a rest or a play; nut how shall I manage? Can anyono say? It I start for a stroll, it is 'Keep off tho I street.' If I go to the house, it is 'Mercy! what feet!' If I take a .scat, 'tis 'Here! give mo that chair!' ' If I lounge by the window, 'tis 'Don't loiter there!' It I ask ??- few questions, 'tis 'Don't bother Or else 'Such a torment I never did see!' I am scolded and cuffed if I make tho least noise, ...

Judge Bacon: 'You really moaii to tell me that' the coach builder would add half-crowns and crowns to the various items of the ac count for the loan of the brougham?'

AN .INTERESTING ARTICLE ON HOW TO . FURNISH YOUR HOME CHEAPLY. :? To furnish the home economically, easily - and satisfactorily, is to thousands of young people of the present day, who have just reached manhood and womanhood, a most momentous and worrying {jrobleni. Social conditions are such in these advanced days, that, as the marriageable age approaches, the , question which concerns the otherwise ? happy couple is how td establish a home. The opportunity to get together tlie fur nishings of an appropriate home for people of every station in life who may not be pos- j . sessed of the immediate means to purchase ' what is necessary right out, is provided by a system of deferred payments.

LOYAL INDIAN PRINCESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906

LOYAL INDIAN PRINCESSES. According to the 'Times,' Bhopal and Jaora represent States founded by Afghan adventurers, and the ruler of the former, whose name was first to be called in the Durbar, is unique as the only lady amongst the feudatory Princes. She is the third Begam in sue- I cession, and it will seem quite a novelty when Bhopal comes in the next gener ation to be ruled by a Nawab instead of by a Begam. The great characteris tic of the three Princesses of Bhopal has been their intense personal loyalty to the British Government. The stern and masterful Silcandar Begam was able to give practical expression to this senti ment in the dark days of 1857; her daughter, the Shah Jahan Begam, was ever ready with offers to troops for ser vice in Afghanistan or elsewhere, arid eagerly accepted the suggestion of the maintenance of a regiment of Victoria Lancers as her contribution to the Im perial Tervice Corps. The enlightened and charming lady who, under the title of the Sultan Jahan ...

Bishop Hamilton, of San Francisco, de fined the future American as 'the amal gamation of all the races that now in habit America — the highest as well as the lowest, the most honored as well as the most despised.' 'You who listen to me to-niglit,' said his Grace, 'many of you very pioud, no doubt, of what you are pleased to caJJ. your Anglo-Saxon blood, will be the grandparents, 'or, at any rate, the great-grandparc»ts, of men and women partly Chinese, and Jupanese.and Russian Jew, and Southern European, and dusky African.' This pronounce-' ment was something of a shock to the Methodist episcopal bishops, who com prised a goodly proportion of Bishop Hamilton's hearers. Many faces in the audience wore eloquent with suppressed resentment, though no word of dissertt or protest was spoken. 'I am convinced,' resumed the bishop, 'that the American of the future will have become the com posite type of all the race...

ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR. HOW HE TREATED HIS GUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906

ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR. HOW HE TREATED HIS GUESTS. Many stories are told of the absejvt.~' mindedness of the late Sir John Burdo'n Sanderson, formerly Regius Professor o£ Medicine at Oxford, who was familiarly known as 'The Burder.' He used to delight his classes, sa^s the 'Westminster Gazette,' by stuffing one chalky duster after the other into his pockets, and finally using his pocket handkerchief to clean the blackboard. At his own dinner-table he would carefully carve the joint, and serve his 'gileats,-. and then fall tS^IRRs own plate, utter ly oblivious to tho fact that he had for gotten to help himself. The late Sir HenryffAeland had a story he always enjoyed of the professor's absent-mindedness. While a guest at his house, Sanderson one day asked Mis-, Acland if he might have his luncheon earlier than usual, as he wished to ha\e a walk before returning to the schools. At the appointed hour lun^h was dub served, and the professor left the hous-?. Ten minutes later, at his us...

Abundance and of his piper likewise. ' I'll go to Brisbane,' he said, ' and get a man who can work on the station and teach t he other hands of evenings.'

GAME OF BRIDGE. PROPOSED NEW RULE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906

GAME OF BRIDGE. PROPOSED NEW RULE. An amendment of the rules of Bridge is suggested which is likely to make serious appeal to votaries of the fascin ating gsume, and seems worthy of con sideration. The suggestion is that when the declar ation is 'no trumns' there should be no 'dummy,' but that each of the four players should play his own hand, as ai ordinary whist. The object of the sug gested alteration is to correct the enor mous advantage which, under the 'dummy' system, lies with the dealer in playing a 'no trump' hand. This ad vantage is so great, and becomes so ap parent when the same set of people hab itually play together, that It encourages, reckless frequency in making the 'no trump' declaration, which detracts- from the variety and interest of the game. This ,it is argued, is especially so in family fireside 'bridge,' where the game is played for quite nominal stakes. The .: dashing declaration of 'no trumps' on an average sort of hand that really de mands a defensive cal...

Tin Mining in the North. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906

Tin Mining in the North. \ A visit has just been paid hy the Under-Secretary' for Mines, Mr. Pitt man, to Tingha, in the Inverell dis trict. He had not been there for aix years, and the first thing that struck hito was the evident prosperity o£ the town. The reason given was the good price of tin, but this did not appear to be sufficient to account for tho marked advancement that fc'; had been made. On considering the matter, Mr, Pittman came to the ' ££l conclusion that this improvement tf:i was largely due to the installa- | tion of the dredges. These dredges ! ? he found 'Wpre doing, splendid work .&!?' all round- Tingha. There are 15 or 16 of 'thorn in operation, and thoy all jj% seemed to be doing well. The great f i? point was that they were extracting r.i ; tin whioh the working miner was pi previously unable to obtain.
