A SAD OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
A SAD OUTLOOK. One wonders how many fellow citizens In this 'Merrle England' of ours have no capital and no chance of saving any; who, well or ill, have to stand to their work, knowing the eyes that are on them, the fines waiting to be inflicted, tbti notice to quit which hangs over Tnem; who shudder at the thought of growing old, knowing this to be the un pardonable sin; who are without joy In the present and with no future that will bear looking at! — 'J.B.,' in the 'Chris- tian World.' v:.
TRAGEDY OF TWO BROTHERS. A RUSSIAN STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
TRAGEDY OF TWO BROTHERS. A RUSSIAN STORY. In December last a large crowd or people stopped Constable Syrmel at Frauenburg, near Riga, and forced him to give up his sabre and revolver. On reporting the event to his superiors the policeman mentioned that among his assailants was one Leppe, whose Chris tian name, however, Syrmel did not know. A 'punitive expedition,' under Colonel Vizivov, was despatched to Frauenburg, and began arresting right and left. _ ~^(-r Among the captured was. one Jacob Leppe. While a good many of the other suspects were shot without much ado, there arose a difficulty concern ing Leppe. ±ie had a brother; which of the two was the guilty one? The wise colonel, being eager that justice should be done at any price, gave orders to execute both brothers. At this juncture, however, the old father of the two young men appeared on the scene and threw himself at Vizivov's feet. 'I am an old servant of the Czar and our fatherland!' he exclaimed, half choked with sobs. '...

Mind you, it may be recly vurry rudo, but what I should like to know is — how caan a woman or a man with a healthy mind be expected to sit here in the dark listening to ' Der Ring des Nibeiungen' for near on five hours, without showing some sign of ennui or restlessness ?'

MEDIUM'S PROPHECY. FULFILLED BY DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
MEDIUM'S PROPHECY. FULFILLED BY DEATH., ' A spiritualist medium's prophecy was fulfilled In a remarkable manner re cently by the death of Antolne Fleurler, who was killed at midnight by a motor car. M. Fleurier, who was himself a spirit ualist, was dining last night with some bachelor friends, who noticed that he was downcast and silent. They rallied him for being glum, when M. Fleurier said he had been told by a medium that he would be killed by a motor-car at midnight that evening. '1 have arranged all my affairs, and made my will,' he said. 'And before leaving you all to-night I shall say good bye to you for ever, for I am certain you will never see me alive again.' Everybody tried to laugh M. Fleurier out of his fears, but without success. After the party broke up at 11.30 M. Fleurier and a friend who lives In the fame r.e'.ghtor'rpod failed to find a cab. They started to walk home together, and had not gone far when the hoot of a' motor-car horn v. a? heard as they were crossin...
DANCING MEN. HOSTESSES SUPPLIED. NEW LONDON PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
DANCING MEN. HOSTESSES SUPPLIED. ? : NEW LONDON PLAN. 'Wall-flowers' are scarce this season. No longer does the nervous debutante spend the best portion of the evening supporting the walls of London ball rooms waiting for the partner who re fuses to appear. There is, in short, a very good supply of dancing men, as compared with last season, and this fact has induced many hostesses who would have formerly dreaded the ordeal to give dances. But What people are asking is the secret of - this sudden energy on the part of danc ing men. It is, as many rejoicing hostesses know, the result of better organisation. ' Certain clubmen who 'feed' . hostesses With eligible young men have redoubled their efforts, and also their 'dancing lists.' / 'Replying to yours of the 15th inst., writes the clubman, I enclose a list of twenty dancing men. I think you may safely rely on twelve.' And the hostess heaves a sigh of relief. Then the Brigade of Guards, urged on by one or two enthusiastic officers, ha...

THE CAVE DWELLERS. OF THESE LATER DAYS.' A mail with face worn and long by hours of work and little sleep sits be fore a block In a cellar. Chop, chop, smash, and the split plank drops. All day he is in the dim light, chopping up ? packing cases for firewood. He is ot Billingsgate Market each morning by ; four, and fetches and carries till eight o'clock. He earns a few cappers, and I occasionally some empty cases — these he takes back on his barrow. He pushes his cap further back, and rubs a hand blistered and cut over his ? unshaved chin. Work from 3.30 in the morning till midnight, and then only to take enough to pay the rent of a fur nished room and the use of the cellar— ' Is 3d a day — and perhaps have nothing all day except fish and bread.

REMEDY FOR MOTTLED BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
REMEDY FOR MOTTLED BUTTER. If, after standing a few hours, the but ter is found to show a mottled appear ance, this can be overcome by putting it on the worker and giving it an addi tional working. The mottled appearance (says an exchange) indicates that some step in the working of the butter has not been thoroughly done. It is due to an uneven distribution of salt, and possibly tr- the nresence of casein that has not been washed from the butter, the action of the casein forming lighter spots in the butter. The best remedy for mottles is j to thoroughly wash the butter when it is in granular form before the salt is ad ded, and then to work it until It has reached a waxy condition; |
MILK AND TUBERCULOSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
MILK AND TUBERCULOSIS. At a recent meeting of the Academy j of Sciences Dr. Calmettes, director of the Pasteur Institute at Lille, France, | after a series of minute observations, ! placed before the Academy a proof of | the transmission of tuberculosis to. a man by cow's milk, and even, what Is more serious still, by sterilised milk. | Contaminated cow's milk does not transmit tuberculosis to the healthy and strong person, but It certainly does in the case of the sickly, or those who are already predisposed by heredity. | Sterilisation, which up to the present ? has been considered so efficacious, is, Dr. | Ofllmettes contends, no longer satisfac tory for rendering milk from a tuber- ? culous cow harmless. The use, therefore, of milk, even sterilised milk, yielded by i tuberculous cows should be prohibited j as food for man, sterilisation by heat not sufficing * remove all danger from this milk; and the use of these milks (even sterilised) yielded by suspjeted or tuberculous cows s...
FARM AND FIELD. CRACKED HEELS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
FARM AllS FIELD. CRACKED HEEI-S IN HORSES. The first Indication of cracked heel Is that the horse will be noticed a little stiff In the morning coming out, of the stable. This stiffness soon goes off, but next morning the swollen and tender heel Indicates that the horse moves with difficulty. It is at this stage that a poultice Is invaluable, but the majority of stablemen will ask for an ointment — the least desirable form of medicament in cracked heels. The inexperienced will do well to bear in mind the fact that a horse's skin is much more easily scalded than their own, and not use a poultice i or clean water hotter than they can comfortably, bear the naked elbow in. | An ounce of powdered charcoal, in a ( poultice of equal parts of scalded bread and turnips or other 'roots,' is a good one, or half bran and Unseed meal; but not bread alone, as It goes bad, unless an antiseptic is first put In. TJie desired re sult will generally be obtained by twenty-four hours of poulticing, and ...
ENGLAND'S WORST VILLAGE. MR. RIDER HAGGARD'S IDEA. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
ENGLAND'S WORST VILLAGE. . MR RIDER HAGGARD'S IDEA. Mr Rider Haggard gave a vividly pic turesque description the other day of the wretched housing conditions which pre vail In some rural districts in England. Mr Haggard was the principal witness before the ^Select Committee which is considering the. Housing of the Working Classes Acts (Amendment) Bill, and he explained that inquiries which he had made showed him that housing was gen erally defective in rural districts. 'The worst place I know in this re spect,' Mr Rider Haggard continued, 'is a village— I prefer not to give the name — in Somersetshire. In that village there Is not a house fit for a human be ing. All the walls seem to be falling down, and the doors and windows are all loose. 'I spoke to the medical officer about it, and asked why the houses were not con demned. His reply was that this was a lengthy and troublesome process, and that even If the houses were condemned it was not much use, because' to pull them down woul...
CANADA AND ENGLAND. THE CONSULAR PROBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
CANADA AND ENCLAND. THE CONSULAR PROBLEMS. Commenting on the opening of the new Chapel of tho Order of St. Michael and St. Georgo In St. Paul's Cathedral, the 'American Register' (Paris) says: — A glance back Into history reveals to us that the Order of the Chapel just dedicated was founded in 1818, to honor the great men whose work was moulded and brought to a' successful issue in foreign and Colonial fields. As time passed on, however, the Order became reserved more and more for the states men of the 'British dominions beyond the sea.' It can thus be said to be an Order peculiarly adapted for eminent Canadian, and Australasian services. A second's Inspection of the roll-call of knights, however, shows us that there are some whoso services cannot be con sidered by any means as distinctly Colonial. For instance, we notice the British Ambassador at Paris, Sir Fran cis Bertie, who ranks second in prece dence among the distinguished members of the Chapter. From this, one would in fer t...

HOW FAR DO BEES FORAGE? [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
HOW FAR DO BEES FORAGE? 'An item of interest that I came across recently,' says. an American apiarist in 'Bee Culture,' 'was the following:— The bees in Mr W. H. Law's Beeville yard were being fed several hundred pounds of syrup in a trough outside, and some little distance from the apiary. All colonies were soon busily at work stor ing it away. When they were well under way, , or about the second day, a visit was made to neighboring yards to ascer tain to what extent the bees there might be partaking in the fray. Another apiary half a mile away was working as busily in storing the syrup as the first. An apiary belonging to a neighbor one mile distant also worked as busily at it, the whole number of colonies in the yard en gaging in it. But of an apiary of 75 colonies, 1% miles away, only 14 found the syrup being fed, while only 7 out of 60 colonies two miles away from where the syrup was being fed, found It. These few colonies worked just as busily as those in .Mr Law's yard, but o...

The ...Trail of the Serpent... * . »y 3Mc. si. BRAmrjowr. book nprnM \ secoistp. CHAPTER VI. — Continued. The Rosebush tea-gardens were a favourite resort of Slopperton 011 a Sunday afternoon ; and many tea chers there were in that great city who did not hesitate to say that the rose bushes of those gardens were shrubs planted by his Satanic Majesty, and that tlie winding road over Hal ford's Heath, though to the ignorant eye bordered by bright blue streamr snd sweet-smelling wild flowers,, lay in reality between two lakes of fire and brimstone. Some gentlemen, however, dared to say — gentlemen who wore white neckcloths, too, and were familiar and welcome in the dwellings of the poor — that Slopperton might go to more wicked places than Rosebush gardens, and might possibly be led into more evil courses than the con sumption of tea and watercresses -at ninepence a- head. But in spite of all differences of opinion, the Rose bush gardens prospered, and Rose bush tea and. bread-and-butt...
