LOST LIVE MINES. DISCOVERY OF LEADS TO TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 January 1907
LOST LIVE MINES. DISCOVERY OF LEADS TO TRAGEDY. What is believed to have been one of tho lost live mines now floating about, the English Channel was seen on Wed nesday, October 17th, off Selse.v. I About half-past one a telegram reached thc Thorney coastguard from Wittering saying that n capsized yacht was tloating along the shore. Tho Thorley coastguard put .out, and the Selse.v fishermen also launched n boat. Tho wind was blowing half n gale, and a heavy sea was running. The coast- 1 guard found (he object— not n capsized yacht, but, it is believed, one of the lost j mines— some two miles out, but ns the | sea was to heavy to allow towing, thc boat turned back. j About one hundred yards from the beach the boat was struck by a heavy sea mid swamped. Two men, George Leo and another, were washed out. Leo wtis wearing a lifebelt, but the oilier man was not. Both were strong swimmers, but though the other man was rescued, Lee sank at once, nnd never reappeared, though his lifebelt floa...
BACK TO THE DUTCH. THE TRANSVAAL GOES. A LIBERAL GIFT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 January 1907
BACKTO THE DUTCH THE TRANSVAAL GOES. A LIBERAL GIFT. The ''Daily Mail' correspondent at. St. Johannesburg writes recently : It is not often that anyone can successfully assume tho mantle of a prophot as far as South African affairs arc concorned. Hero it is tho unexpected that happons. ! Who, for instance, would hnvo im agined five years ago that tho first Pariiamene in tt British Transvaal I would bo controlled by l'Utchmon ? I But it is now clear that the pro phecy of the ' Daily Mail' will bo realised. For tho second timo t.ho Transvaal is to bo handed baclt to ' tho Boers. WhatXas the underlying ideal of tho Liberal Government in framing thc new Constitution for this colony it is impossible to say. But, giving them credit for tho best intentions, ono must at least find them guilty of a lamentable blunder. Whatever their motives may havo been, tho eilcct of their arrangement will soon b-» painfully cloar. Undoubtedly the bulk of the people of England honed that the first responsi...

GORKY'S POVERTY IN AMERICA COMPANION ACTS AS WAITRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 January 1907
GORKY'S POVERTY IN AMERICA COMPANION ACTS AS WAITRESS. Maxim Gorky and his companion, J Mme. Andrieva, who were some time ago ejected from several New York hotels, ! railed for Europe on 13th October on the Prinzess Irene, travelling as Mr and Mrs Pieshkoff. Gorky declined to discuss his experi- , ences In America beyond sayine that he is writing a book, entitled 'Mother,' , wherein he will set forth his opinions, j But it appears that in addition to the dis appointment and humiliation following the disclosure that his 'wife,' accom panying him undc-r the name of Mme. Gorky, was the Russian actress And rieva, Gorky also suffered the discom forts of poverty. j His literary work while in America was unremunerative, and he disdained to accept the assistance of wealthy sympa thisers, preferring that their contribu tions should go to support the cause of Russian freedom. I Moreover, in view of the clrcum- | stances of Indignity to which Mme. And- i rleva was subjected, she was too proud ...
Distribution of the rainfall. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 January 1907
Distribution of the rain fall. The rainfall figures for the year just ended furnish some interesting comparison between the amounts re ceived on the coast and in the weBt respectively. It is a meteorological maxim, of course, that the intensity of the rainfall over ' extended periods decreases with the distance from the sea but the returns for this State, iust completed, show some remark able exceptions from the rule. Sydney, for instance, had less rain tliap Gopgolgon, on the Bogan, by three-quarters of an inch. Windsor had less than Bourke. Camden and Picton did not have as much as Hill ston and Booligal. Western River ina had more rain than nearly the whole of the Hunter Riverjdistricts. Mr. Hunt points out. that the explan ation of these extraodinary results is probably to be found in the charac ter of rainstorms of 1906. Most of these came from the westward, and the area beyond the Dividing Range received the full benefit of them. But in many instances the mountains intercepted...
LANGUAGE. THE LITTLE KNOWLEDGE DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 January 1907
LANGUAGE THE LITTLE KNOWLEDGE DANGER. Major-General Patrick Maxwell has put together in 'Pribblea and Prabbles' (Skefllngton) a goodly store ot good stories of a varied character. The au thor, dealing with the use of words, forecasts the time when English will be the general' language of the civilised world — though suggesting that it will have undergone some 'startling changes rtf hnnHcj rtf Aiir Tnrilnn fr»Mrvur-«lf h- jectg.' Wc are then given some amus- | ing Instances of 'Baboo English.' Then come examples of verbal mistakes gen erally^ and we are told of ai- .English lady in Italy, at an entertainment, who, on being pressed to have something more to eat, which she did not want, meant to reply, 'I have eaten enough, a-nd do not wish for anything more,' buj. by a slight mispronunciation of two words, startled the company with, ' I have eaten a ship, and do not wish to eat the anchor also.' The author tells us: 'I myself heard the following ab surd blunder from the lips of an Eng...
[?]ke V. 'Possum. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 January 1907
[?] HHPex fcmorilini^ry ' .'sigh t ;;,w;as i to b.b.4 witnessed ^ ^ during, 4ho -past} weelr^ hetir. ^arrkndi; For some days, and at any' rate, up till Thursday, there was to; be seen -hanging from a short jfpout of an ironbark tree, about 3 7 feet from the ground, a carpet snake S to 9 ft long, with a full ' grown 'possum in its mouth — both dead. The surmise, which is quite feasible, is that the snake went into the hol low spout after the 'possum, and having secured it a fierce struggle ensued ou the branch outside. In I the struggle, the snake, with its prey firmly secured — too firmly probably to relax its hold — slipped off the branch, to which it clung by a single coil only, and in consequence of the weight in its mouth, was unable to pull itself back, and in that position succumbed rather than risk the fall of nearly 40 feet. We hear that the 'possum and snake are still hanging in this deadly grip, and may do so for some days:—' Scone Advocate.'
BULLET FOR BURGLAR. A WOULD-BE THIEF TRACKED. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 January 1907
BULLET FOR BURGLAR, A WOULD-BE THIEF TRACKED. A remarkable story of a burglar's mis adventure was told at Thames Police Court on 1st November, when Richard Smith, aged thirty-four, a laborer, was charged with attempting to burglari ously enter 6 Grundy street, Poplar, be longing to Mr J. Hayloek, a boot manu facturer, of Leicester. The prosecutor's manager was aroused by hearing some one trying to effect an entry through the shutters of tho win dow of the room in which he had been sleeping. He fired twice to alarm the police, but, 'unfortunately, the prisoner stopped the bullet.' A police-sergeant, on examining the premises, found bullet holes through the shutters and window. There were four marks on the window frame, made by some Instrument, and there were blood stains on the roof of the workshop. He traced the blood stains ovor three differ ent roofs and over a wall which divided thc houses from the street. On the roof of the second house ho found a chisel, which fitted the marks ...

Mr P J Daley said he quite agreed with the author of the 'paper, and thought it was best both for the cow aud calf. Of course it would also be necessary to milk the cow regularly during tho three days, as che calf ?would not be able to consume all the xnilx. His own practice was to leave the naif on the cow for two or three days, and then leave it without food for twelve hours or so, and he found that there was little extra trouble in teaching it to drink Mr J.

BISHOP AND BIBLE. A STRANGE STATEMENT. The Now York correspondent of tho London 'Dally Mall,' writing on 1st Oc tober, is responslblo for the following: Bishop Charles D. Williams, of tho Episcopal diocese of Michigan, In ad dressing the members of tho Young Men's Christian Association at Detroit to-day, declared that the Bible was not the word of God, and thar teaching to sources of unbelief. He said that the Biblo nowhere de clares itself to be the word of God. yet we were told that we muat accept It In it entirety. But tho your.g man reading Genesis found It impossible in geology, astronomy, and ethnology, and the only assistance the Church was able to give was tho advice, 'maniputa e it until it fits the sciences.' Tho result was that the young man, if honest, must either abandon his belief or stultify his reason. 'The Bible,' said the Bishop 'needs a 'square deal.' When we represent It to bo the word ot God we use is like a heathen fetish,' ?
