Husband's Delemma. . j Here is a story of a husband's awful dilemma, ' as told in the "I hiladelphia Record." Midnight, and in the .smoking-room of a club sat a young man huddled in a chair.

Brontides. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914
Brontides. The term "goufire" is applied in Haiti to mysterious acoustic pheno mena, probably of subterranean ori gin, and evidently belonging to the ciass of sounds known as " bron tidi" or "brontides" reported from various parts of the world. They seem, however, to be much more varied i'n character^ than the typi cal brontides of Italy, Belgium, etc. Sometimes they resemble the boom of cannon, but again are described as deep rumblings, bowlings, a rush ing sound, as of wind, a deafening crash, "as if a mountain of glass were shuttered," and so on. They have heen known in Haiti from the timca of Moreau de St. Mery and the other early historians of the country. St. Martial Observatory, at I'ort au Prince, has undertaken n systematic investigation of this phenomenon by means of a ques tionairo addressed to numerous re sidents of the island, thus follow- } ing the example of Von den' Hroerk in Belgium and Alippi in Italy. When cream is only slightly sour it may be made delicious to se...
Wrestling on Stilts. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914
Wrestling on Stilts. There, are no dwarfs in the sandy "huides" districts of France, for here men, women, and children prac tically live on stilts. Shepherds are able to watch numerous (locks of sheep, for, studding as they do at a height averaging 1 -1ft., they can survey vast expanses of land at a glance. Children play about on stilts as easily as if they had been born on them. On stilts the lads and lasses stroll in the twilight ; on stilts also they take part fh the graceful country dances. But the most original sight, of all is that afforded by a wrestling match be tween two combatants so equlp pe I. They will 'ight and wrestle sometimes for ten minutes at a stretch, until both are bruised and bleeding, without even slipping or falling once from their stilts.
Light on a Dark Subject. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914
Light on a Dark Subject. The suburbanite is a man who ; spends his day-time in the City and j his salary in the country. He ; usually is old enough to know bet ter. The suburbanite is a patron saint. \ of railway companies, perambulator : manufacturers, lawn-mower grinders, and growers of seed—grass, garden, unci canary. He lunches at Brown's, dines at home, and eats his breakfast on | the road to the station. i He knows his way home in the dark, but. probably would fail to recognise his house If he. were to run up against it in the daytime. The suburbanite usually lias wife, four children, the inllueiwa, and no permanent rook. 1-Te sleeps all day- Sunday dream ing of trial-balances. Week days the babies are still slumbering when be leaves for llio City in the morn ing, and abed when he reaches home at night. Offspring of suburban ites know only by hearsay that they have a father. All suburban jokes on record were written by cave-dwellers. Suburban j life is no joke to the suburbani...

District News MINGOOLA. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914
MINGOOLA. We had an interesting little wed ding here at Mount Hope on the morning of the 26th of January, when the Rev. Mr. Darling, in the absence of the Rev. Mr. Malcomsoh, joined together in the matrimonial bonds Miss Maggie Tickle, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Win. Tickle, and Mr. Robert Fendon. There was a great gathering isom up and down the river to witness the ceremony, which was very interesting, and being one of the first weddings celebrated in the local ity. The happy couple were married under the Wide Arch of Heaven, and under a dear old apple tree. After the wedding a goodly company of some 50 sat down to a plentiful re past and a very pleasant time they all had. Then followed the usual dance that our country girls so dear ly love. When the company dispersed in the wee small hours, they all with one accord agreed that they had had j a happy old time." Many kind pre sents were in evidence showing how popular the young couple were.

Woman's Best Age. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914
Woman's Best Age. Between 30 ami 10 years of ago a woman is in her physical prime, ami if some luirm/nl agency were not at work should then possess a maxi mum of beauty, said "A Physician," writing i'n the " Daily Mail " re cently. Discussing' this statement, Mr. Byam Shaw, the artist, said : " I think that, provided a woman has taken cure of herself,' she is more beautiful between the ages of AO and 35 than at nay oilier time. T do not say that her figure is ns good then as it is at 22 or 25. hut her features, expressing, more character, are often far more beau tiful than at any other time in life. There need lie no lines, -no harshness of any kind. and no appreciable change in the beauty of the com plexion. "One .of the most beautiful women I ever painted—perhaps the most beautiful woman I. have ever seen— was in her .'50th year. TCven when she was over 4 0 this woman was still in her prime. Certainly, pro vided she has taken all possible care, a woman is at her very best in featu...
Belated News. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914
Although to a number ut' our mailers the contents of this small issue, published under exceptional trying circumstances, will be "stale" news, we would ask that this be overlooked by them. We have had a number of letters from subscribers complaining of the non receipt of the issues of this paper which had to be suspended through the while of our plant being destroyed, which would clearly, show that there are yet some people in this large district who arc not aware of the devastation' that Tenterlield lias i been sull'ering.

Super-Human Ft/1 en Among Us. MRS. ANNIE RES A NT EXPLAINS HER TlIEOSOPHY. OCCULT POWERS AT WORK. Mrs. Annie Bosunt, just returned from India, has introduced to a Lon don Queen's Hall audience some " Manifestations of Super-Human Beings in Our World," in her capa city as president of the Theosophical Society. Mrs. Besunt opened her subject by declaring that there are men and women living among us now who have developed in themselves certain occult powers, by the use of which they can read incidents of the past recorded by the pictures existing in subtler mutter than the physical. By the use of these powers, sin: averred, the favoured men and wo men can see that ancient civilisa- I tions and ancient religions were al- ' ways started by super-human beings who walked 011-earth among men in physical form, and who guided men along the ways of progress and evolution.

Factories that Float. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914
Factories that Float. Floating, factories have become an important part, of t lie development of the forest resources of India. In certain parts of the country forests are only accessible through the water-courses, ami the great expense of erecting land'plants for the utili zation 'of the lumber resources makes such a course impracticable. There fore sawmills and other manufac turing establishments are built on floating platforms and moved up the streams as they are needed. After the lumber is prepared in a sawmill it can be packed in a was that makes transportation tniicli more economical than any system of logging. Plants for the preparation of tannin extracts have also been established in this manner. The plants -are built cm llat boats, 2U0ft. long by 127ft. v.ide, capable of carrying a load of 470 tons. i
