Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 14 October 1876
Local and General News. ADVENTURE WITH NATIVE DOGS.-The ' Wide Bay -¿ News/ says,- -At Thompson's Flat, two boys, who had been out in the adjacent forest, were attacked by two native dogs and had to get up a tree to escape them. Their cries attracted a man who was in the vicinity, and on going to their assistance he also was "stuck up" by the dogs. The man then left for assistance, and at the hotel he found Inspector Lloyd, constable Amies, and others, who sallied out with him to where the dogs were. They carried a lantern"with him to show the way, as it was quite dark. On approaching the spot, one of the dogs sprang on him and bit him severely on the hand, also tearing his clothes. Inspector Lloyd imme diately fired and succeeded af ter several shots in wounding one of the brutes and killing the other to the intense relief of the boys. CHILDREN.-Give me the boy or girl, says a lover of children*, who smiles as soon as the rays of the morning sun glance in through the window, gay ha...

Intense Heat in England. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 28 October 1876
Intensé Heat in England. THE intense heat which has prevailed all over England for some time past culminated on Au gust 15, in a storm in the Midlands. The great heat experienced for the last few days continued until thé above date, when a most welcome change took place. The air had been sultry and close for some time previously; and the sky became overclouded with a thick haze. In the evening there was vivid flashes of lightning, with thunder, and soon after a heavy fall of rain, which speedily reduced tho temperature. There was also a violent thunderstorm at Cam bridge and in the district of St. Albans. It is shown in the registrar-general's return that the mean temperature at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, was 66*7., and 4*6 above tho average for tho corresponding week in sixty years. It showed an excess on each day of the week, and on August 10 was 71*6 deg., or 9*5 abpvo the average. The highest reading of the thermo meter in the shade was 91*2 deg. So high a reading was not...

Gasino. [OFKOM OUR CORRESPONDENT. J ] October 20th. DURING tao past week Casino has been a little duller than ordinary, owing to an exodus to Lismore, to enjoy the various sports there ; and the last of our folks are only now returning. I am glad to see this interchange of amenities, slight though they be, and trust it will encou rage a more neighborly feeling. I am pleased to be .able to say, that at least one visitor is loud in praise of tho kindnesses of the Lismore people. Although I fear we cannot compete with you in the rapidity of your progress, still there is some progress being made, as exhibited by the erection of several buildings, amongst which I may mention an addition to the premises of the Misses Mooney ; a cottage just commenced by Messrs. Simpson and Son on land «t the side ot the store now occupied by Mr. F. G. Crouch. Mr. J- L. Vesper is also commencing a dwelling for himself on the hill, at the south side of the river--by far the prettiest side of the town to liv...

Sugar-growing. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 28 October 1876
; Sugar-growing. THE following is an extract from a letter ' written by a gentleman, near Maryborough, Queensland, to a friend in Sydney and shows that sugar-growing is likely to be a profitable industiy on the Mary Uiver this season : " The cane is somewhat thin, and the yield per acre rather light, but the density is very good and more than compensates for the short yield. The worst we are crushing yields 9£ per cent., Beaume, We run out 8900 gallons per diem, ranging from 9^ to ll per cent., equal to about 4 tons ll cwt. of sugar. This is from Bappoe canes 10 months old. We made 12 tons 3 cwt. in three days. Some Froebe cane is standing at a wonderful density, viz,, 12f per cent, direct from the rollers. In two hours we crushed equal to 21 cwt. of sugar. I tested 400 gallons of juice this morning, which gave a result of 13J per cent. The Gingham cane gives a very good result, and I expect a return of 35 to 40 cwt. to the acre. We find a very great advan tage from deep draining. I...

¿ liOcal and General News. THE MUSICAL SOCIETY.-We are torry to say that the meeting called- for the formation of a Musical Society in this town, lapsed, in consequence of the détention of the convenor of said meeting at Casino, through illness. Our readers will, however, perceive that another meeting is respectfully solicited for ? o'clock on Thnrtday afternoon next, and aa there are said to be rolls upon rolls of music already in our xnidst, the divine art should soon find a local -habitation and a name, here, .and make, itself heard in44notes' which would be as pleasing to the ear . and .senses, as those issued bj the branch bank in v this town are to the eye and fingers. That " Music hath charms," we all well know, and in these small country towns, the rubbing-off the rust of everyday life, by bringing people together for social enjoy ment, is something to be considered, independent of the elevating natures of sacred music, and the culti vation of those aethetic tastes which tea...

Post Otfice, and. thence to be trans- j . xnitted by tlie ^Shortest and most expeditious route to our township. This is wanted for ob *vio*as reasons, the most pertinent of which is a great saving of time, and a deal of.bungling. j 1 nave, «c., L. D. C. Lismore, October 21st.
Baron Rothschild. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 28 October 1876
Baron Rothschild. THERE is a good story told recently of Baron Rothschild, of Paris, the richest man of his class in the world, which shows that it is not only money which makes the mare to go, but ready money (says the Court Journal). On a very wet and disagreeable day the Baron took a Parisian omnibus, on his way to the Bourse, or Fxchange, near which the Nabob of Finance alighted, . and was going away without paying. The driver stopped him and demanded his fare. Rothschild felt in his pocket but he had not a red cent of change. The driver was very wrath. .'What did you get in for, if you had no money ?" ' ' I am Baron Rothschild '1 exclaimed the capitalist, "and there is my card." The driver threw the card into the gutter, " Never heard of you bofore," said the driver, "and I don't want to hear of you again. But I want my fare-and I must have it!" The great Banker was in haste. "I have only an order for a million," he said, " give me change," and he proffered a coupon for 50,000 ...
