THE SITUATION IN CRETE. London, February 18. I The commanders of the combined European beets have informed the Greek Consul that any attempt on the part of Greece to attack Canea or occupy the city will be repelled. In conseqnence of the high-handed action of Greece, the Sultan has de finitely determined upon undertaking military operations on the Thessalian frontier and calling out the rebels who will be placed nnder the com mand of Ed hem Pasha. While these operations are in progress the Porte will leave the Powers to pacify Crete. The Saltan will, however, send Kstkeodory Pasha, a christiau and former Governor of Crete, as Imperial Minister representing him at Canea.

THE OPENING OF PORT HEDLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 26 February 1897

THE OPENING OF PORT HEDLAND. A disqcjetjng rumour was set afloat some two months ago to the effect' that the Port Hedland jetty and har bour improvement contract had been stopped by the Government, and was circulated up to latety without cavil or contradiction. This rumour lias, we are pleased to say, been falsified by a telegram received from the authorities below; and the residents of the Pilbarra GoldGeld can now rest assured that the work will be commenced as soon as practicable. The advantages derivable from the tlirowiug open of this port to the traffic of large steamers, and the for mation of a road therefrom to Marble Par, are inestimable, and will, per haps more than any other outside help which has been afforded us, con duce to the prosperity and advance ment of the district in general.

POSTAL FACILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Pilbarra Goldfield News — 5 March 1897

POSTAL FACILITIES. Fok a district containing tkepopu-: lation which Pilbarra may boast, it cannot be said that the facilities nfforded for the transaction of the various branches of Post-office busi ness are at all commeusurate with the requirements. We propose, however, for the nonce, to confine ourselves to a consideration of a few reasons why Bamboo Creek and Nullagine, two bustling localities, should have extended to them the money-order system in counectio*n with the post and telegraph offices at those places. At present Marble Bar is the only town in the whole district where such an order payable at some other place in this colony or elsewhere may be obtained, and, seeing Nallagine is 70 miles away, whilst Bamboo Creek would be 40, an idea may be gained of the coutiuual public iuconvenience caused through the persistent ue glect of the department. A large proportion of the residents of these fields have families, or other relatives, in the adjacent colonies, to whom they frequ...

ODDS AND ENDS. It is a strange fact that the right hand, which is more sensitiye to the touch than the left, is less sensitive than the latter to the effects of heat or cold. The most curious paper-weight in the world is said to belong to the Prince of Wales. It is the mummified band of one of the daughters of Pharaoh. A young couple were recently married in Maine, U.S.A. Now a brother of tho groom is to marry the mother of his brother's wife, one bro ther thus becoming the father-in-law of the other. The most costly tomb in existence is that which > was erected to the memory of Mahommed. The diamonds and rabies used in the decorations are worth £2000000. Some of the tops with which the Chinese amuses themselves are as large as barrels. It takes three men to spin one, and it gifesoff a sound that can be heard several hundred yards away.
