BONFIRE IN A CELL. CONVICT TRIES TO BURN HIS PRISON. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 March 1906

BONFIRE IN A CELL. CONVICT TRIES TO BURN HIS PRISON. An attempt to burn down a portion of his Majesty's prison at Exeter was made on Saturday evening. 22nd December, by a convict undergoing five years' penal servitude. The man was in a cell in the wing ' where those undergoing long sentences are kept. After tearing his mattress to pieces, he placed it with some cocoanut fibre in a heap. Not having matches, he broke the window of Ills cell and with the leather oil the covers of his -? Bible succeeded in reaching the gas jet outside, and thus secured a light. He then set the mattress and fibre on fire. There is evidence that the prisoner, who is a tailor by trade, intended to take his life, as a cord made of tailor's thread, with a slip knot at the end, was found attached to the ventilator. He was, however, overcome by the smoke, and when the door ot the cell was opened, he was found in a dazed condition. The Exeter Fire Brigade were imme diately summoned, and control was ob tained ov...

WEARY BRAINS. BEST REMEDY FOR THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 March 1906

WEARY BRAINS. BEST REMEDY FOR THEM. 'How best may the daily strain be relieved without materially affecting the daily output?' The 'Grand Maga zine' has been gleaning answers to this question from notable persons, and these are printed in its Christmas num ber. Miss Braddon suggests 'sweet Idleness amidst beautiful scenery.' Madame Marchesl finds in picture gal lories 'my real, my greatest, my favor ite recreation.' Miss Ellen Terry re commends the seeing of a good play. 'It lifts one,' she says, 'from the nar row groove of one's own paltry affairs and makes one sympathise broadly. To feel kind is to feel rested.' The best change that the Archbishop of Canter bury has recently experienced was his American tour. PREACHERS AND OTHERS. Father Ignatius makes answer: 'No reading, no writing, nor business of any kind; bath, exercise, sunshine, garden ing, and electric treatment.' Rev. R. J.

MILES ON MEALS. A FRANK CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 March 1906

milesTHeaIs. ' A FRANK 'CRITICISM. [By FRANK RICHARDSON.], .Mr Eustace Miles, besides being a Master of Arts, is an unusually 'brainy' [ man. In the 'Daily Health Diary' he has given us a manual which will enable us, If we diligently follow his precepts, to defy disease or perish in the attempt. This convenient volume, the work of a hygienic La Rochefoucauld, should be in the hands of all. It contains a series of Invaluable maxims on health and on morals. 'Do not fail to see the humor of things, especially of yourself,' says Mr Miles. Should he re-read this book, he may be assured of much real merri ment. But he adds : 'This disarms criti cal sneers.' He is wrong here. Even though you succeed in seeing 'the humor of yourself,' It does not follow that the 'critical' will see It. and they may go on sneering all the same. THE SIMPLIFIED LIFE. The author, to whom we cannot be too grateful, arranges a delightful course for the year 1906. He tel.s us exactly what to eat on Monday, what se...

"THE QUEEN'S CAROL." "NOT MERELY A SUCCESS A SENSATION." [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 March 1906

'THE QUEEN'S CAROL.' 'NOT MERELY A SUCCESS A SENSATION.' ' 'The Queen's Carol' is not merely a success — it is a sensation.' So said one of the booksellers to a re presentative of the London 'Dally Mail' on 21st December, when asked for a copy he could not supply. All day the run on the book was quite without parallel in the history of bookselling. Not a copy seemed to get Into the windows or on to the counters because the supplies were either ordered in advance, and de spatched. as quickly as they were re ceived, or sold immediately they were unpacked. 'A buyer comes for one copy and car riesc away four,' said a bookseller in explanation of the rapid disappearance of his supply. At Whiteiey's the publishers' parcels were surrounded as they lay on the floor of the book department, and given, out to purchasers almost as rapidly could be unpacked. 'It is not selling the book — it is jtH(( handing It out,' said a salesman in another establishment. At one of the Bumpus bookshops there w...

THE USE AND ABUSE OF MINERAL WATERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 March 1906

: THE USE AND ABUSE OF. MINERAL ?-V ? . WATERS..' Mineral waters have received a great accession of popularity during tho last few years. The public seems to have developed a strong taste for them, since new. varieties are constantly being in troduced into use, especially of the 'natural water' kind. As a matter of fact, this growing practice of drinking aerated waters. is - not altogether beneficial, and medical science has at last begun to inveigh against their excessive use. Doctors have proved that in some cases actual harm* is done by taking them. MINERAL WATERS AND INDIGESTION. To begin with, the very common prac tice, especially amongst those who will not touch alcohol in any form, of drink ing largely either something of the lemohacle variety or a 'natural' water with every meal, is now viewed with . disapproval. For the normally healthy person to do this is a mistake, for artificial min eral waters sometimes retard digestion. To explain this, it must be mentioned that in th...
