A LORDLY SCIENTIST. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

A LORDLY SCIENTIST.' The Earl of Crawford, who (ac cording to tho ' Westminster Gazette') has just returned from his ornithological expedition among the islands of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, is perhaps better known as an astronomer than an ornithologist. As long ago as 187-1 ho journeyed to the Indian Ocean to observe from Alauritius tho rare phenomenon of tho transit, of Venus, the observations of which and of the companion transit in 1882 ? resulted in the estimate of tho sun's distance being corrected from 5)5,800,000 miles to 92,700,000 miles. The observatory at Dunecht, Aberdeenshire, which the present Earl's father founded, was, when in charge of Dr Copclund, late Astrono mer-Royal for Scotland, the centre for the diffusion of information relat ing to astronomical discoveries, and for many years astronomers all over the world depended on Lord Ci'aw Jprd's ' Dunecht Circulars' fur pnr BBMfcl^iew comets. ephe-iierides of

'FATHER OF THE LORDS.' DEATH OF LORD TEMPLEMORE.' With regret we ('Daily Telegraph') have to announce the death of Lord Templemore, who expired at his town residence, 23 Great Cumberland Place, W., late on Sunday night. His lordship was 'Father' of the House of Lords, and had he lived until Thursday next, would have completed his eighty-fifth year. Aiiuugn iiol, ui cuurfae, tiie oiuest mem ber of the Upper House — he is exceeded in years by Lord Gwydyr, who is in his ninety-seventh year, and by the Earl of Cranbrook, who will be ninety-two next October— the late Lord Templemore had sat as a peer for a longer perior than any of his colleagues. He was born on 14th June, 1821, succeeding to the title on the death of his father, when he was fifteen years of age, and entered the House on attaining his majority in 1S42. The Earl of Leicester, who, having hap pily recovered from his recent severe ill ness, is in excellent health, now becomes the 'Father' of the House of Lords. He is by eig...

LONELY HOUSE MURDERER. A THIRD OUTRAGE. ' ' ' - SANDHURST CADETS HUNT FOR j ASSAILANT. On Sunday, 24th June, the correspon dent of the London 'Daily Mail' wrote from Camberley: — For a fortnight past a mysterious terror in human form has haunted the pine woods of Camberley, attacking de fenceless women in broad daylight and escaping with apparent ease without leaving a trace by which he can be tracked. His latest success was on Sat urday, when, after a struggle with a younir lady staying in the officers' quar ters of the Sandhurst Military College, lie fled to the woods, from whence an army of angry searchers were unable to dislodge him. At five minutes to ten on Saturday morning Miss Pottle, a young lady of about twenty years of age, staying with her friend, Miss Waite, tho daughter of Ivlojor Waite, the riding master of Sand hurst College, was seated in the dining room reading a book relating to military matters, when, happening to glance into a mirror by her side, she saw the ref...

'BEEFSTEAK' CHAIRS. SALE AT CHRISTIE'S. Seven stalwart oak X-shaped chairs, carved with the arms of the Sublimo Society of Beefsteaks, appeared at Christie's. This club flourished from 1735 to 1867, and it Is agreed that the chairs were those used by the Prince Regent and the Duke of Sussex (as presidents), James Lonsdale, Ad miral Dundas, John Richards (the Re corder), Thomas Lewin, Charles Morris, and Charles Hallet. The set belonged to the late Mr J. H. Foster (brother of the painter, Blrket Foster), and It was in the fitness of things that the seven should be sold to Messrs M. B.

CONGO HORRORS. GIRL FLOGGED AND STUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

CONGO HORRORS. GIRL FLOGGED AND .STUNG.*. So horrible have been the detaiils' of the revolting atrocities in the Congo Free State that they would be almost incre dible did the evidence of returned mis sionaries not only confirm, but empha- ; sise, tho telegraphed reports. The Rev. & Dr. Nassau, who has returned to Ame-i rica after 45. years of missionary work? on the Congo, adds his testimony agalnsf the iniquity of King Leopold's adminisf, _ tration in the American Journal-Exam-s iner.' He took home with him a grim ^ reminder of the scenes of torture, so frc^Btf quently enacted in six rhinoceros hlde^^H whips, with which native women were beaten to death by their white masters. . One instance o£ such brutality, which he ?- describes as 'exactly, pitiably true,' Dr. Nassau gives in detail. For some trivial fault a certain officer took a dislike to one of his wives, a mere girl, and proceeded to wreak his ven geance upon her in a particularly re volting manner. 'He instructed...

FUTURE OF THE RACE. AN ITALIAN VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

FUTURE OF THE RACE. AN ITALIAN VIEW. In the intimate consent of nil man kind in a common action, in the re ciprocal exchange of help and ser vices, in the sharing of defeats and victories, in the brotherhood of tlie same joys und the same griefs, men's souls will be purged gradually of the . selfish sediment, so that tliey will ro ceive and bear testimony to tho leaven of ever new and higher ideals. Once 'illuminated by this now ray of light, enlightened by this new faith, life appears under lovelier and more attractive^ hues. Your ascetic, who, with- gaze fixed on the vision of a fu:-'-away world which cannot bo . /ours, isolates himself from life by totally concentrating himself to the worship of his ideal, and your 'super- man,' who, by living solely in and for himself, deludes himself with a drunken dream of dominion, are seen to be one, at least in so far as both concepts of life are but hallucinations of minds either diseased or dis traught.— Alcssandro Groppali, in the ' Nuov...

ANIMAL HEROES. BIOGRAPHIES OF BEASTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

ANIMAL HEROES. BIOGRAPHIES OF BEASTS. j Within the last few years a new ? school of fictionlsts has arisen in th-' ^iland — novelists whose heroes and hero ''ines are not men and women, but birds, beasts and fishes, nay, even insects and plants. I The immense' ? vogue of these animal I stories is easily explained; they ofter something new to the satiated novel reader, wearied of the threadbare themes and glittering artificialities of the modern novelist, whose ephemeral pro ductions are forgotten as soon as read. The writers of animal stories are, in many cases, skilful naturalists, and teach us much about the wild life of for est and stream and the birds of tlie air, while affording pleasant entertainment and narrative interest at the same time. Not taking into account Kipling's im mortal Jungle Books, the American au tlinr, Mr Ernest Thompson Seton, is vastly the leading exponent of the ani mal story, being at once a competent naturalist, a graceful writer, and an ar tist of no me...

A JOURNALISTIC DUEL. CURIOUS POLEMIC. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

A JOURNALISTIC DUEL. CURIOUS POLEMIC. j A remarkable newspaper duel, which Is largely engrossing public attention in Berlin, Is being carried on between 'Die Post,' the organ of 'the Imperial Con servatives, aind 'Der Vorwarts,' the well-known Socialist journal. The methods of controversy are pretty much alike on. both slides. Epithets like 'don- key,' 'ape,' 'fool,' 'Ink-coolies,' and worse, are freely bandied about by the respective writers, those of the Im perialist scribes being not a whit behind ?those of all the Social Democrats in acrimonious vulgarity. It all arose out of what is known as the SchoneBrock husen affair, recently brought to no tice in 'the Reichstag by Herr Bebel. Briefly the story is as follows: — Schone and Brockhusen were two police a.gents, who gave a certain Rus sian Jew a passport to return to Russia on the condition that he would supply them with useful police news from that country. This passport was in a false name, and described its holder as a Protes...

CONTRACT SYSTEM V. DAY LABOUR. (To the Editor Mullumbimby Star.) [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906

CONTRACT SYSTEM V. DAY LABOUR. (To ihe Editor Mullumbimby Star') .Sir, — In your last issue appears a letter on the above subject, over the signature of ' C.M.K.' (whose iden tity is well known), a portion of it being a dismal attempt at rhyme, and as the writer evidently intended it as a dig at me, I wish to reply to same. Firstly, he refers to a roadway, Bonnell's to Main Arm, carried out, he says, by day labour, and ernes on to state that tlio work was completed in two months by six men getting 7s a day, and that the samewcrk would have cost £180 by the contract sys tem. As to how he arrives at what the work would have cost if had been let by contract I am at a loss to understand. No tenders were ever called for the work, consequently no one can say what price it would have been done for if it had been let out to tender ; but probably it may not have cost auy .more than under the day labor system. As to the state ment that the work was done in eight weeks by six men, I am in a po...

MULLUMBIMBY RACECOURSE. (To the Editor Mullumbimby Star.) [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906

MULLUMBIMBY RACECOURSE. (To the Editor Mullumbimby Star) Sir, — Your correspondent, ' Old Jack,' appears very ignorant in re gard to the above.' With, your per mission I will enlighten him. Somo years ago it was thought ad visable to secure a piece of land for a racecourse before it was all alien ated ; many meetings were held, and eventually the land was granted, on payment of thirteen guineas by the applicants. Subscriptions were in vited towards paying that amount and effecting improvements, but the response was so meagre that the trustees decided to let the land on a clcarance lease, reserving rights whereby races and other sports could be held at auy time. Since then the land has been worked as a dairy farm, and is now in process of being cleared and fenced. In addition, tho cash income from the property will, I presume, in due course be spent in effecting further improvements. The land is, strangely, free from noxious animals, or vermin, as ' Old Jack' calls them. May be the f...

WITH THE BRITISH FLEET. NEW STYLE IN NAVAL FIGHTING. | ATTACK ON THE TRADE ROUTES. On board H.M.S. Euryalus. on 2ath , June, William Maxwell wrote to the Lon don 'Daily Mail'1:— | We lay at Pl.vm mth when news came of the outbreak of war. A- new Armada had sailed from the south of Ireland j with thc avowed object o£ craning a : commercial panic, dispersing our fleets, I and overcoming them in detail. For so ! desperate an enterprise the force was ; n.u great — eight battleships, six ar- j m.' red and twelve unarmored, five gun boats, and thirty-four torpedo craft. Not a wry formidable array against twenty one battleships, nineteen armored and twenty unarmored cruisers, eight scouts, and forty-one destroyers.

Of his eight battleships, five were cf the latest type — the King Edward — steaming nineteen knots, while his armored cruisers were notable for speed and armament. NEW -METHODS FOR OLD.

DE ROUGEMONT AGAIN. HE RIDES A TURTLE. HIPPODROME LAKE SCENE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906

DE ROUGEMONT AGAIN. HE RIDES A TURTLE. HIPPODROME LAKE f-CENE. Of the extraordinary claims put 'orth by Mr Louis De Rougemont, tho 'modern Munchausen,' the one which drew on his head the most laughter and scorn was that he had used turtles for marine equestrian exercise. Time brings the explorer his revenges. Yesterday (6th July) he retrieved part of his re putation by performing the feat success fully in the Hippodrome lake. A turtle of 2401b. weight was brought to the Hippodrome in a cart, and at tracted a large and wondering crowd. It was lifted from the cart and placed on a truck, whence it watched the proceed ings with a mournful eye. At last it was placed at the side of the arena. Then De Rougemont made impressive mesmeric passes about the animal's head and neck, occasionally adding a little gentle massage. The turtle responded with a series of helpless snorts, like an exhausted gas-engine. A POINT FOR HORSE-RACING. 'Do you know why I do that?' asked De Rougemont. 'That places...

According to the return of public prosecutions in 1005 issued by the Im perial Government n few weeks as n Blue Book, the Old Bjiiley tariff is ex tremely uncertain.

LONDON HORSES. A PUBLIC MENACE. Incirlsnt ganders Is stated upon good authority to be prevalent among London working horses to an extent which is a serious menace to the public. A leading veterinary surgeon, who places the num ber of horses employed in London at ap proximately 100,000, thinks that one fourth of the total are affected with the incipient form of this contagious disease. Official records in the 'London Gaz ette' do not show an increase of glanders in England. For the last four years the average is 2300 cares annually. Ten years ago the average . was practically (he same. But these figures, in the estimation of experts, must not bo accepted as com plete. Co'onel Hall-Walker, M.P., for instance, points out that according to law compemation has to be paid for every animal destroyed by official order, the amourt ranging from one quarter to the full value. The Board of Agricul ture stale that they have not sufficient funds to enable them to do this. More over, though horses...
