SUSIE IN YONLAND. THE CABINET TRICK. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

SUSIE IN YONLAND. THE CABINET TRICK. j I Mr G. G. Desmond writes in tne ijou- j don 'Daily News' of 29th November:— j The first animal Susie 3 aw was the , Weasel, sniffing about for a victim and i evidently up to no good. Ho was the funniest Weasel Susie had ever seen, j One eye was considerably larger than the . other, and the fur on one side of his white front was, as Susie says, 'twim- pled up for all tho world like a flower in the creature's buttonhole.' These are slight details, but this Weasel had ail over him a general air of -monocled and ibutton-holed self-con.fidence that made Susie laugh in spite of his known carni vorous character. Soon after Susie saw another animal— _the Rabbit. It was a thin and languid Rabbit, and it passed the time of day with Susie in an abstracted, though gen tlemanly, manner. , Although the little girl does not like talking about unpleas ant subjects, especially with strangers, she thought it only kind to warn the Rabbit that the Weasel was near...

THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

THE WIDE WORLD, j Mr Barton Sewell, a mining million aire, living in New York, writes the New York correspondent of the London 'Daily Mail,' divorced his wife in Ten nessee, and married a stenographer in New Jersey. His wife sued both in New York and Tennessee to set aside the divorce on the ground of fraud. A New York court granted a divorce, to take effect in January, and declared Mr Sew- ell's second marriage void. Mr Sewell and his second wife are separated, but it is understood that they will re-marry in January. The second wife went to the hotel where the first was living. A con fusion of cards revealed to each the other's whereabouts, and the second wife at once went to another hotel. Charged with high treason, the hand some and talented Russian authoress, Zinaida Smoljaninow, was on Saturday, 18th November, sentenced by the Leipsic Imperial Court to fifteen months' impri sonment, with a fine of L75. As des cribed in the 'Daily Mail' of 11th No vember, Smoljaninow went to Ber...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

THE LADIES COLUMN USEFUL HINTS.   In blowing out a candle, hold it aloft,   and blow upwards. This will prevent the scattering of the grease. In a mixture of two ounces of salt to a pint of water good eggs will be found   to sink, whilst indifferent ones will al- ways float. After ironing linen place it near a good fire or in the sun until perfectly dry, as the garments will be stiffer than if left to dry slowly. Potatoes baked in their skins will al ways come out dry and mealy if a small piece be cut off one end to allow steam to escape in the cooking. Instead of keeping parsley in water, which often turns it yellow, put it in an air-tight Jar in a cool place; this will keep it fresh for some time. New iron, such as a new range, etc., should always be very gradually heated at first. After it has become inured to the heat is not nearly so likely to crack. The following is a hint worth knowing — When baking scones or cakes, if the soda is dissol...

HOMELY FARE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

HOMELY FARE. Stewed Rabbit with Rice. — An old   rabbit can be made a very successful dish in the following way : — Cut the rabbit into neat joints. Put them in a saucepan with a large carrot, turnip, onion, and herbs all together, add enough boiling water to cover. Let all simmer gently for about three-quarters of an hour, wash half a pound of rice and add it, then let it simmer slowly till the rice has soaked up nearly all the liquor. This may take an hour. As it gets thick stir it often, as it so soon catches. Then take out the rabbit and vegetables. Keep the former hot and the latter can be put n the stock pot. Drain off any liquor there is with the rice, add to it some sieved tomato pulp, chopped parsley, and salt and pepper. Stir this sauce over the fire for a few minutes. Arrange the joints of rabbit neatly in a hot dish with the rice round, and pour the sauce over. Savoury Hash. — Ingredients : Two ounces of butter, slices of cold mutton, a spoonful of red curra...

HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

HEALTH HINTS. Do not give new bread to children; if   the bread is new, rather toast it, in thin slices, and let it cool before giving it to   the little ones.   Speaking of cycling and heart strain,   a doctor says that so long as the cyclist   can breathe with the mouth shut she is certainly perfectly safe so far as heart   strain is concerned. Colored stockings and socks should al- ways be carefully chosen with warranted 'fast' colors, for aniline dyes are poi sonous to sensitive skins, and are often responsible for tender feet. Cramp in the legs is frequently re lieved by firmly pressing the feet against some hard substance, such as the end of the bed. In most cases pressure against a cold hearthstone will afford relief. Plenty of open-air exercise should be taken during the day by those who suffer from sleeplessness. Moderate physical fatigue tends to soothe the brain. If the trouble increases it woul...

[?] RETRIBUTION. [?] JAMES GRAY WADDELL. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

RETRIBUTION BY JAMES GRAY WADDELL. ? out in the African veldt the moonlight shone down upon a rude   hut, before which the dying embers of a fire flickered feebly. The hut was one of several grouped round the base of a low hillock, on the flat summit of which was the reason for their exist ence, the black mouth of a shaft, above which dangled a large bucket slung     from an overhead cross-beam. Close by was the controlling windlass. -It was a deserted, diamond mine. The   original owners had abandoned it only   a few weeks before, believing it worked out. They were wrong, and the two derelicts now in possession reaped the benefit of their premature conclusion. Eric Baird and his pal, Hilton Tracy — men who had foregathered in these wilds and chumed by reason of common associations in the old country — had   toiled here as they had toiled in many a similar spot, feverishly hoping, but always grimly pessimi...

STRANGLING A WIFE. VICTIM'S HANDS HELD BY HER RIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

STRANGLING A WIFE. VICTIM'S HANDS HELD BY HER ? RIVAL From Florence the correspondent of the London 'Dally Mail' wrote on 29th No vember: —   After ten days of intense excitement, the trial for wife murder of a man named Fuscatt and his sweetheart and accomplice ended here to-day. The murder was effected in a peculiarly treacherous manner. The woman, who passed for a friend of Fuscati's wife, held the victim's hands and talked to her while the husband crept up behind and flung a slip-knot over his wife's head. Together the husband and the false   friend then put their weight on the cord and strangled her. Fuscati was sentenced to penal servi- tude for life, and his accomplice to the same punishment for thirteen years. The depraved cynicism of the male pri soner so enraged the public that several attempts to lynch him after the trial were only rendered abortive by large   forces of police and soldiers.

ON MARRIAGE. SOME SENSIBLE ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

ON MARRIAGE. SOME SENSIBLE ADVICE. (By VIOLETTE LONDA). Although I have been brought up to think the contrary, I have almost come to the conclusion that it is a great mistake to be in love with your husband either before or after mar- riage. If you are in love with him before, your brain-power seems to be- come weakened (it must, otherwise people would not make marriages which are bound to prove failures,   your judgment is warped, and you suffer from either blindness or optical illusion. It is often difficult to de- termine which; but both are fatal. To be in love with your husband after marriage seems equally dangerous, as you become so super-sensitive that you are always feeling hurt without reason. The most innocent word, look, or deed is misinterpreted, and up springs a grievance which flour- ishes like the proverbial green bay- tree. You also worry about your husband. If ho is ten minutes late you imagine he has been run over by a bus. If he is away from home and ...

LAUGHTER AS MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

LAUGHTER AS MEDICINE. According to ' Science Sittings,' there is probably not the remotest cor- ner or little inlet of the minute blood   vessels of the body that does not feel some wavelet from the great convulsion produced by hearty laughter shaking the central man. The blood moves more ra pidly. Probably its chemical, electric,   or vital condition is, distinctly modified, it conveys a different impression to all the organs of the body as it visits them on that particular mystic journey, when the man is laughing, from what it does at other times. And thus it is that a good laugh lengthens a man's life by conveying a distinct stimulus to the vital force. The time may come when physi- cians, attending more closely than they do now to the innumerable subtle influ- ences which the soul exerts upon its tenement of clay, shall prescribe to the torpid patient, 'so many peals of laugh ter, to be undergone at such and such a time,' just as they do now a pill or a...

GIRL'S SECRET BRIDGE DEBTS. PROMISES NEVER TO PLAT AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

GIRL'S SECRET BRIDGE DEBTS. PROMISES NEVER TO PLAY AGAIN. The painful stories revealed in a recent correspondence in the 'Dally Mail' of gambling among the women and young girls who frequent some of the modern bridge-playing clubs, are illustrated by the following very human advertisement in the 'Morning Post':— AMERICANS and Bridge Players— A Young Girl of birth and good position BEGS for L50 to pay off debts incurred secretly before November 24; will promise not to play again; in great distress. Address X.Y.Z., 01882, 'Morning Post' office, Strand, W.C.   It is painfully easy to imagine the ef- forts made by the young player to obtain the money before she was reduced to the desperate expedient of this advertise ment, to which we do not doubt that the weakly merciful human nature of more fortunate gamblers will readily respond. If 'X.Y.Z.'s' cry for help is a genuine one — and the advertisement has a very   real ring about it— several people will &...

PAT'S ILLUSTRATION. An Irishman and an American once fell into a dispute as to whether the Irishman's six children, who were born in America, should bo called Irish or Americans. 'They were born in America,' argued the American. 'Well, they were born of Irish parents,' re plied the Irishman. 'That don't make any difference," replied the American, "they were born in America, and so are natives of America, and should be called Americans.' 'Surr, it makes a difference,' replied the Irishman; 'If a cat had kittens in the oven would you call tham biscuits?' (.Unionist Party: 'I don't rightly know.''

A CHINESE REVENGE. THE ANGRY MANDARIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

A CHINESE REVENGE. THE ANGRY MANDARIN. A gruesome story of Chinese barbarity is related in the 'North China Daily News' as having occurred recently at Peking.   A certain Mandarin's wife had incur-   red the hatred of her husband's head   steward because she had refused to pro-   cure for the latter's son a coveted government appointment. The opportu-   nity to revenge himself, for which the aggrieved steward had long waited, at last presented itself. The mandarin was leaving on a short journey, and was overheard to say jestingly to his wife that he had fully made up his mind to   have her buried alive. '   After his master's departure, the chief of the household solicited an interview with the wife, and making the customary low obeisance, told her that he had come to carry out his master's orders. The terrified lady protested that it had been a joke, but the steward, aided by some menials, se...

DASH FOR THE FROZEN NORTH. INTERNATIONAL EXPEDITION. DANISH EXPLORER'S AMBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

DASH FOR THE FROZEN NORTH -----------<>------------           INTERNATIONAL EXPEDITION. DANISH EXPLORER'S AMBITION. A novel sort of Arctic expedition, in which England, Denmark, and America will be represented, is at present being organised in London, and will start for the frozen North at the beginning of April. The party will consist ot Mr Einar Mikkelsen, the Danish explorer; Mr Ditlevsen, a Danish zoologist and artist; Mr T Leffengwell a Chigago geologist; and probably an Englishman who has not yet been selected. In conversation with a 'Daily News' representative recently, Mr Mikkelsen,   the captain of the party, who was wished success in his expedition by Sir Clements Markham, at the Royal Geo- graphical Society's meeting on Monday, said he hoped to work westward for 400 _ miles from Prince Alfred Cape, and then return southward to the mouth of the Mackenzie River, with the obje...

A BOY MURDERER. SENTENCED AT SEVENTEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

A BOY MURDERER. SENTENCED AT SEVENTEEN. A youth of seventeen was recently sentenced to death for the murder of his sister. While his parents were out for a walk at Portsmouth on Sunday evening, 17th September, Frank Hansford, aged seventeen, struck his sister on the head with a poker, and then cut her throat. He was arrested on Southsea Parade between one and two o'clock the fol- lowing morning. He pleaded not guilty at Winchester Assizes on 24th November, and his father in his evidence said that the boy had always been backward in intel ligence, very self-willed, impulsive, and irritable. The prison doctor could not say that the prisoner was insane, nor that he was suffering from homicidal mania, though the facts were consistent with this the- ory. He had, however, no thorough realisation of his position. Dr. Worthington, the medical officer   of the county asylum, held that he was an imbecile; and Mr Beachcroft, for the defence, urged that Hansford was tottering on th...

LUXURY OF THE RICH STYLE. CAUSE OF UNEMPLOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906

LUXURY OF THE RICH STYLE. CAUSE OF UNEMPLOYMENT. ''The cause of the present unemployed trouble in England is the luxury, the ex- cessive love of pleasure, and the inordi- nate attention to sport often found among the wealthier classes of the coun try.'' Such is the declaration of the St. Pan eras Distress Committee, at whose meet ing on the 1st of December a resolution was moved that a petition be sent to the King ''To beg that your Majesty will use your personal example, and your influ- ence upon the rich? section of society,   and, through them, upon the whole na- tion, so as to urge the duty of the simple life, to fetch back the rugged virtues, to lift the national habits into higher planes of self-denial and service for the common good, and thus, by enduring, not tempo- rary and fitful, methods, to alleviate the social evils of England.'' The mover of the resolution will be the Rev. Hubert Handley, the vicar of St. Thomas', Camden Town. ''The well-to-do classes,'' h...
