Rainmaking. TUE LAST' EXPERIMENT A EAIL A passing wave oi. interest in the . question of '.inducing rain to fall has beeil aroused during . tho ' last threo months, not only in Australia but also in JSew Zealanu. People havo sought to make themselves acquuniL ed with tho mysteries of cyclones and anti-cyclones, ol" isoours and monsoo- nal depressions,' and have achieved niore or less success in trio eiiort. inn through it all the tact has stood out prominently that so far as human agency is concerned, the (problem of forecasting - the weather or of induc- ing .nature to alter her. methods is yet in its infancy.

Woman Items. FASHION AND OTHER NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 6 December 1907

Woman items. FASHION AND OTHER NOTES. Ivory-backed brushes are now thc costliest to be bought. They are much dearer than silver, and conse- quently are "the" thing at present. Whalebone brushes, the bones being of different lengths, are used to- im- part glossiness to thc hair. . . . . Hatpins grow longer and moro fas- cinating every month. One of French make is a rose-tinted cameo, oval in shape, set in dull gold and oxidised silver, in an Empire design. The inusliroom-shaped Japanese " hatpins are pretty, looking something like a small hat with u turquoise crown nnd a silver brim. One of tho newest hut pins is decidedly startling. There is a large coloured cut stone, and be- neath this a reflector, attached to spiral "springs. With every movement of the wearer's head the reflector vi- brates, sending forth flashes ol" light, and the effect is quite dazzing. . * * .

The Origin of Christmas Boxes. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 6 December 1907

The Origin of Christmas Boxes. Whimsical old John Dunton, in his priml- j five "Notesaud Queries," says: "Christ- mas-bos is as ancient as the word Mass. No (hip gpes out to tho Indies but the priest« have a box in that ship, under the protection of some Saint. People mast put something in for Masses. If the Mass at the lime was Christ's Mass, then the box was Christ-Mass box." From this it followed that servants and others had liberty to get box-money, so that they might be able to pay for Masses, beeause it was a ease of "No penny no Pater-noster," for though the rich paid largely, yet the poor were expected to pay something. The custom can be traced hxch to early Beman times, and in tbe seventeenth century " thrift-boxes " of earthenware wero carried round at Christmas by apprentices, described by Browne as "apt to take in money, but restoring none till they be broken." These are thus alluded to by Gay : " When time comes round a Cbristanas-box. Q they bear . And one day makes th...

One has become so accustomed to see ii blind man reading the Bible by fingering his way along the Braille type that one is apt to forget that other books-and even maga lines-aro also made eligible for the blind. This type is now taught to all blind children. The idea of giving Christmas cards to the blind is, however, comparatively new. The cards are illustrated by means of embossed pictures, and the greeting is conveyed in Braille type. These Christmas card3 for the Wind are published by the "'Weekly Sum wavy," thc billy newspaper In Hie English language for the blind. The cards can bo had in twenty-two different designs, with sacred or secular words, and the price varies from one penny to sixpence each.

UNKNOWN AUSTRALIA. Take a map of Australia and draw a straight line from Sydney to Mel- bourne. Bisect it. From the bisect- ing point draw a straight line in a north-westerly direction till it strikes tho Indian Ocean. Here, at thegrqa .test distance from the two capitals, will bo found the least known part of our continent. 'To the average Sydney-sider it is really a terra in- cognita. He knows little Jibout Wyndham, with its cattle exports. He .¿nows nothing about tho fastnesses of the Kimberley country, .with its thousands of wild natives. He has but a faint idea of Derby and its huge baobob trees.

Port Hed- land he will not find on the map, un- less- it be a very recent one.
