Some weeks ago about 5000 Jewish im migrants from Russia arid the Balkan States landed at Jaffa.

HIDING THE DOORS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 13 September 1906
HIDING THE DOORS. The Chicago correspondent of the Lon don 'Express' wrote on Oth July: — The Buildings Commissioners took the drastic step to-day of closing Messrs Marshall Field and Co.'s vast stores and issuing warrants for the arrest of the managers because they had neglected to place signs in prominent places marking the exits from the building. Marshall Field's is the largest depart ment store In the-world, and the volume of business transacted every )-.our Is enormous. Thousands of customers aro always in the building when it is open, and the danger of panic makes it imper ative t&ii' the doors should be found P-Siiy. After tho place had been closed for three hours, Mr Dunne, the mayor of the city, allowed It to be re-opened. The compulsory closing has proved more expensive for the firm than a fine of several thousand pounds.
