Land and Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 30 August 1906

Land and Settlement. The Queensland Lahds Department, after making- what are regarded as satisfactory trials. with the divining rod, intend to sink for water in the rich belts of country iu the Barmoya and Gogango scrubs. The Narrabri Stock Board has de cided to strongly oppose thd leasing of four reserves in different parts of the district, they being situated on the onlv stock route from Narrabri and the north-western districts to the Hunter and southern markots. ~ At a meeting of the Bathnrst Pro gress Association it was asserted that local tenant farmers had no money, and lived in humpies that were a disgrace to the district. Tenant far mers were described as ' working bullocks,' and it was contended that there was no hope for Bathurst until the large estates had been broken up. The following is told by a Dorrigo correspondent in the 'Raleigh Sun,' and is an indication pf what life is worth on Dorrigo just now : — 'Tho weather-is very cold, and very severe frosts prevail.

Derrigo Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 30 August 1906

Dorriffo Settlement. Mr. John Stinson, who lias just returned to Sydney from a trip to the Dorrigo, said that altogether 270 applicants for the land to be thrown open had registered at Coramba and Coff's , Harbor, everyone of whom would be obliged to travel from 25 to 35 miles to Bellingen, instead of being permitted to make his'applien tion and take part in the ballot at Coramba. The 'general feeling at Coramba and Coff's Harbor was that all the blocks lying to the east of Coopernook Creek should be dealt with at the courthouse, Coramba, and all the blocks west of that at Bellingen. ' For some reason or other, which is not known to the residents,' con tinued Mr. -Stinson, ' the ordinary principles which would guide a busi ness man in disposing of an asset of this kind have been departed from, and unnecessary difficulties placed in the way of ..intending settlers.' :QUestioned as to how he regarded the prospects of the districts, Mr. Stinton said that there was every evidence of a l...

Billinudgel Sports. These sports, which were the out como of a day's athletic sports held some weeks ^ back, took place on - Saturday la^t. The weather waa ' favorable to j outdoor pastimes, and there waB a/very fair muster of both sexes present. Mr. John Devereux filled the duties of secretary, and carried through the task entrusted to him in a manner satisfactory to him self and those, connected with the meeting. Messrs. G. Walmsley and J.

Mr. Albert Baker had the unenviable position of starter, but being firm he succeeded in getting his fields away to goots starts, and without mnch difficulty.

The Light in Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 30 August 1906

The Light in Politics. At the Christian Conference now being held in Sydney, Mr. Brunt neli, M.P., spoke on the subject of . ' Reflecting the light iu Politics.' He said there were three classes of politicians in the New South Wales Parliament. There was the selfish class, the members of which were always looking for the highest price, swayed easily with the political pen dant. and lived ud to the graceful motto, ' Self first, self after, and self again.' This class would do nothing to improve the moral tone of Parlia ' ment or of the country. The second ? class consisted of the dependent indi / viduals, who seemed to live on the word-of their party, and who would sacrifice anything for that party, whether right or wrong. The third class of men, of which there were too few, put God first, and were inde pendent of selfish interests. These men went into Parliament to do right, to benefit the country, and honestly labor in the interests of their fellowmen. They would not deviate to the...

South Coast Items; Mr. James Cambourn has pur chased the Jervis Bay hotel, and '?intends to carry it on himself. Springers again made good prices last' wfeiek- ,at the Berry yards, as much as £6 12s 6d being realised for good sorts. . The '., Federal Government has lighted/the Nowra Post Office with acetyline gas, but won't allow the cost, of the gas to exceed kerosene. The Nowra ' Leader' drops pretty heavily on to the present member for that electorate (Mr. G. W.

Mrs. Williams, a very old and re spected resident of Berry, died last week. Mr. E. J.

A Prominent Jockey. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 30 August 1906

A Prominent Jockey. John Clievally, who is generally regarded as the best rider over ob stacles in Australia at the present time, and who of late has had a very . successful time in the saddle, is a native of Switzerland, but came to Australia when he was six years of age. His parents settled on a farm on the Northern Rivers, where the boy had plenty of riding practice — of a sort. Clievally tolls some of his experiences thus : — ' I had never seen a racehorse before the day on which I rode my first real race. I didn't know what a horse race was like. It came, about like this. I was a great kid for horses. Put me bare back on a horse, and I was happy. .My next greatest delight was to read about jockeys, and to collect their pictures. It was a great, ambition for a country lad, who could scarcely speak English ; but I made up ray mind that I would do it, and nothing could change it. The races were ? corning on at Copmanhurst, and I succeeded in inducing a farmer to let jne ride a hor...

General News. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 30 August 1906

General News. Some of the moat valuable agricul tural land in Australia iB that devoted to the growing of lucerne around Bfjrt&hus Marsh (Vie.), a block of whieu was recently Bold for £125 an acre. There are five cuts a year, eaoh averaging one and a-half tons of hay per acre, which at £2 a ton, gives an annual rent of £1.5 per acre. The soil is good, but the secret of the ? land lies in the most gravelly drift into which the roots penetrate, and ?where they find a never failing supply of water. Dr. Woolnough, lecturer and dem onstrator in geology at the Sydney University, says that Valparaiso is on almcst identically the same par allel of latitude as Sydney. The close connection between the earth quake in San Francisco and this one as regards time must strike everyone, and these two quakes- are certainly expressions of one great cause af fecting the earth as a whole. At present the whole earth is in a state of seismic umest, and probably we may hear of more earthquakes. The...

The elder lad had a nasty, trouble some cough and cold: the other a bad cold and cough just beginning to trouble him, They each took your remedy, which, by the way, they liked immensely, and in two days the cough and cold of the younger boy had entirely his appeared, having been cut short in good time, at the end of the third day the elder boy was absolutely cured. Being a chemist for seventeen years, I am naturally somewhat antagonistic to proprietary and patent medicines, but in this in stance I must recognise and acknow ledge the efficiency of the preparation and give credit where credit is duo. I was greately pleased with the marvellous and striking curative and soothing propertie...

Man with Ten Wives. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 30 August 1906

Man with Ten Wives. The New York correspondent of tho ' Morning Leader' says that a syndicate of broken-hearted American women has been formed in North Carolina in order to assist the police of five States to discover a gentleman calling himself Lord Sholto Douglas and other names,- who has five de serted wives scattered up and down the continent. This man is not a scion of the house of Queensberry, for the real Lord Sholto Douglas is ranching in North- Dakota with Lady Douglas. Last December, under tho name of John Cavendish, the deserter met a beauty of tho brunette type, Miss Josephine Hood, at New Iberia, Louisiana. He charmed her with stories of his Scottish castles, and married her in 26 days. The wed ding was a great social event, and the happy pair left for some alleged fruit * plantation in Mexico, with thousands of dollars belonging to the Hood family. Not a word of Mrs. Cavendish had been heard until Sunday, when a letter was received by Mrs. Hood from Mrs, Caudler, of Sa...

A REAL SEA-SERPENT. DESCRIBED BY NATURALISTS. ' After the cataracts of scorn that [ have deluged those who have dared, | of late years, to tell us tales of the ?sea-serpent, ho must be regarded as ' a bold man who would come forward with a new story to-day. Yet at a meeting of the London Zoological Society Mr M. J. Nicoll and Mr E. B. Meade Waldo unfolded uofei'e tho Fellows a most wonderful and con vincing narrative of a weird monster which they encountered whilst' cruis ing with Lord Crawford in his yacht the Valhalla off Para on 7th Decem ber, 1905. These two gentlemen, one of whom is a member of tho Council of the Zoological Society, and the other a naturalist who is well known for his accuracy, were standing on tho deck of the yacht at about 10 a.m., when their attention was caught by a curious sail-like object of some -tft long and 2ft high wa.\ing from si le t0 side in the water.

KING HAAKON. HISTORY OF A FAMOUS NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

KING HAAKOH HISTORY OF A FAMOUS NAME. To-day (says the 'Westminster Ga rette' of 20th June) King Haakon goes to Trondhjem to take the crown which some nine months ago was offered him by the people of Norway. Prince Charles of Denmark, as he then was known, has chosen to adopt the one Norwegian name that has been used upon no other throne than that of Nor way — a name held in high honor be cause the klnes who bore it were justly praised for having other gifts than sim ple genius for war. Tho 'town of Trondhjem and the name of Haakon both stand for much in Nor way's history. The very earliest records that we have concerning Norway, given in Snorre's 'Sagas of the Kings,' opens in Ringerike, a tiny province, where Harald Fairhair's ancestors had reigned a thousand years ago. Harald was forced to fight defensive wars when quite a boy, but ere he came of age he had grown strong enough to be aggres sive and snap up bit by bit the neigh boring provinces, until the whole of tho rich lands w...
