THE UNEMPLOYED PROBLEM HOW THE FRENCH DEAL WITH IT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

THE UNEMPLOYED PROBLEM I HOW THE FRENCH DEAL WITH IT. j The Paris correspondent of the Lon don 'Express' writes as follows: — Now that the persistent question of the unemployed forces itself with- such irresistible power upon the British mind, it may be of interest to see what our French friends aTe doing in the matter, and how they manage to avoid such a crisis, as Is now confronting the public powers In England's erreat met ropolis. The conditions, it is true, are not alike In both countries. The climate, sur roundings of life, organisation of labor differ entirely, the character of the people also, and this explains to a great extent why Frenchmen are spared vio lent attacks of that loathsome disease, 'lack of employment,' which annually occurs in England at this season of the year. . ? Of 'unemployed' there are, of course, very many and many in France, as in every other country, and the best in formed authorities reckon their num ber at an average of 5 per cent, of the worklngma...

SIR HENRY BLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

SIR HENRY BLAKE. The Governor of Ceylon (writes the London 'Daily News'), now return ing to his duties from a visit to Eng land, has had a brilliant career, and done great things on the fringe of the Empire. His advance has been assisted by hi3 being the fortunate husband of a verv hrtlliant Woman in a daughter of Bernal Osborne; The latter was not favorably disposed towards the match, when one of his daughters was to wed the Du£e of St. Albans. He arranged, therefore; to give the younger daughter the lion's share of his wealth. But this she would not tolerate, insisting that her elder sister should at least share equally with her. She had her way. Lady Blake is a woman of infinite charm and tact; clever, alert, and cheerful. Her one foible is for strange pets. The favorite is a tame leopard, which she reared from its Infancy. It is good and kind and docile, unless maltreated. It happened one night, ' during the progress of a ball at Government House, that a young subaltern led his ...

HENLEY'S NEW RIVAL. THE ZAMBESI REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

HENLEY'S NEW RIVAL. I THE ZAMBESI REGATTA. The Henley Regatta Committee must look to their laurels. ?S They are seriously threatened by far ^-off African competitors, who are already mkklng preparations for an ambitious regatta-to-be; held TnTuly next -on the Zambesi, River. The real danger lies in the fact that Sir Charles Metcalfe, the moving spirit of last summer's Zambesi's Reeatta. was so pleased with its success that he pro poses to offer L1000 to the funds of any university sending out the champion crew, and to invite representative eights of universities from all parts o£ the world. There is 'spice' about boating on the Zambesi which makes Henley a foolish picnic hy comparison. There is always an exciting possibility of a coxswain disappearing down the mouth of a hippo, or of a crocodile taking a siice out of a frail craft. HIS HEEL. DISAPPEARED. An official of the British South Africa Company told an Express' representa tive quite casually that one of the spec tators at las...

SUNDAY'S MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

SUNDAY'S MILK.. Londoners seem to have their milk troubles even worse than we have. The 'Hospital,' for example, asks the 'fol- lowing question: 'Why should Sunday milk be worse than that sold on Satur day or Monday? There can be no na tural reason for it — the cows do their duty without regard to the day of the week: but In Southward,, at lenst, the , milk sold on Sunday is more frequently,/ found to be adulterated than on any. other day. Mr Weatheritt, the Inspector for the Food and Drugs Act in that dl»- ; ^ trlct, has found that Sunday milk is .not . only worse than that of week-days, hot ' that the badness of it is steadily increaa- - ing. . . The Inference is obvious— that the milkman relies on -the general tion of work on Sunday to save hlm £rom unpleasant inquiries as to the quality of his milk. The lesson also is obvious - th^t there Is no rest-day for tbe inspec; at Of tbe

Saba West Indies, an American 1 writer says it is a topsy-turvey place, 1 where the men are great sailors nnd i build their boats on a mountain, and 1 the women -are celebrated for their ; beautiful complexions.

FARM AND FIELD. KEEPING RECORDS OF DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

FAItW AND fltlV. KEEPING RECORDS OF DAIRY COWS. In keeping the record of the milk, we use a ruled sheet with a split column in which to record the morning and evening milking (writes a practical' dairyman in thq 'Mlchagan Farmer'). We place the cow's number at the head of the column devoted to that animal. These sheets we keep in a frame with a movable glass to protect the sheet from dirt. It is not sufficient to weigh the milk; you must know what the cow is testing in' fat; therefore, we keep a bottle In which to place samples taken from the milk. Each bottle is labelled with the number of the cow, and the label cov ered with shellac varnish for protec tion. Each milker has his own row of bottles corresponding with the cows he milks. After the milk has been weighed he pours a tiny dipper full into the bot tle belonging to that cow. In each bot tle we place a preservative, which will keep the milk perfectly fresh for a month. The test for the fat is made once a month. I do not know ...

The Russian Problem. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

Tbe Russian Problem. Mr. Edward Dicey,. O.B., in the ?'Empire Review' for December, discusses what is called ' The Rus sian Problem,' but as one reads the article and considers the subject dealt with he comes to the conclusion that it is not one problem, but very many and very complox problems with which Russian leaders are called upon to deal. Tlioso most intimate with Russian affairs and vorsed in the history of nations are at a loss to explain the forces which aro dis organising the whole fabric of Rus sian society, still less are thoy able . to predict what will be the outcome of the colossal upheaval. Tho anom alies which puzzle those who investi gate Russian affairs, and try to fore cast the terminus towards which Russian society is hurrying, are thus summarised : ' A revolution without recognised leaders ; reformers who demand parliamentary institutions based upon universal suffrage in a country utterly devoid of political education or even of political in stincts ; an autocr...

A GOOD COW. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

A GOOD COW. The 'Farmer and Stockbreeder' . (London) in a recent issue published an illustration of a cross-bred cow named Doctor, owned by Captain Smith Ne'.ll, Windover, England. She is twenty-four years old, and at the Dairy Show she gave five gallons of milk at the two I milkings. Her percentage of fat at the morning milking was 4 per cent., and the evening 4.8 per cent. She calved In May last, and is due to calve again in May. At the Dairy Show she won first prize, and the Lord Mayor's Cup, as well as a reserve for the Barham Cup. From the- illustration one would judge that his cow' is of the true dairy type. Certainly a cow that isc a prize winner at twenty-four years of age is worthv of hierh nralse. '

Land Law Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

Laud Law Reform. The Crown Lands ( Amendment ) Act of 1905, which ran the gauntlet of the two Houses in a surpris ingly short time in tho closing honrs of last session, provides what should prove a fairly substantial in stalment of land law reform. Ex cepting for complaints at the late ness of the introduction of the measure, and at the j brief time for consideration and discussion, and for criticism of the forestry propos als, which wore ultimately with drawn by tho Minister of Lands, there was surprisingly little adverse criticism, wThile there was consider able commendation from Opposition as well as from Ministerial members. Tho ballot system for the disposing of land has not been abolished, but has been greatly modified. There was much reasonable dissatisfaction under the superseded system because there was no classifying of appli cants according toeligibil ity, so that, for example, a man with wife and family, waiting to secure a home stead had no preference in the ballot over...

'WE SAVED THE GUNS.' PRINCE LOUIS LEAVES NEW YORK. The New York correspondent of the London 'Dally.

Thousands. thronged the water front to wave good-bye, and the Cunard pier, where H.M.S. Drake lay, had the largest crowd in Its history. Before sailing, Prince Louis thanked Rear-Admiral Evans for his courtesies, and expressed his belief that the visit had materially strengthened the friendly relations between the two countries. The American Admiral replied that he did not think it possible to strengthen | those relations, but that the visit had been a source of great pleasure, especi ally as regards the good behavior of the men of both squadrons. The Prince and Admiral Evans exchanged autograph photographs. Speaking of the havoc wrought on H.M.S. Drake by souvenir hunters, one officer said, 'We saved the guns.'
