LUCKY CHRISTMAS CRACKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 January 1907

IiUCKY CHRISTMAS CRACKERS. No one has more respect for the good old customs of Yuletlde than a certain wealthy old cripple, who, though de barred himself from active indulgence in seasonable revels, does his best to pro vide innocent amusement for others. 'TCv^rv Ohrlstmas he fills his beautiful country-house with children of the work ing class, apd entertains them in a homely style, which delights them far more than embarrassing ostentation. The feature of the evening, though, is the cracker-pulling, for each child knows that inside his cracker he will find a bright sovereign for himself and another for his parents. The yearly sum ex pended on these lucky crackers is very little short of L1000.

WINDMILLS FOR SAILING SHIPS Ocean going sailing vessels, those which have no steam or gasoline engine power for hoisting purposes, can now be supplied with a pumping outfit operated by one or more windmills. There is always moro or less leakage in even the best boa/ts, .and the bilge pump is as necessary an adjunct as -the compass. | On most sailing vessels these'! jpumps are worked by hand, the process being very monotonous and tiresome.

Correspondence. (To the JEditor Hitllumlimby Star) .Dear Sir, — I saw. in the press recently a bi-ief note . from Bishop Doyle asking that, immediate action be taken with regard to mails being carried by motor car from Ballina to Tenterfield. Some months ago I went fully into the matter, and found p'^t it was ditbcult un: :r' present 'i, adit ions, by motor -car, to carry the heavy, mail, reaching tons on some days, wnich comes to Lismore via Tenterfield, There is apparently no car which could be ' run efficiently which could carry such a mail and' passengers over the present road. I suggested that parcels and papers should be excluded, and lettors and passengers be alone carried- There are objections also to this -course. People will expect their papers by the quicker service which brought the letters. The mail via Tenter- : field is assuming such dimensions that it will presently require a lorry and a team of draught horses to shift it. Weara all in agreement that so large and imp...

CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 January 1907

CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. It it most important that pot plants should bo well watered at this time of tho year, and thoso who are entrusted with this work should bear in mind that rain water is most natural for them. When this is not available water that is soft and has been for a time fully exposed to tho air is the next best. Water should never, if possible, be given to plants at a lower temperature than the soil in which the plants are growing. When water of any sort is api-licd to pot plants always give enough to moisten thc whole of the soil within the pots, fcr if it bo given ia drib lets the upper portion eluno gets moistened, the lower part la time be coming as dry as dust, i;i which con dition it is impossible for tho roots to remain healthy. In addition to watering, the pot plants require ventilation, and liquid manuro at this time of tl.e year if they aro expected to xralie good growths.

Mr Cadbury, therefore, proposes that the brushes shall be supplied to the schools, and that the school teachers shall supervise their ap ! plication. 1 He has called the head teachers into t conference, and the question has been fully discussed.

Vege tables are the tenderost of all forms of plant Iifo, and the greatest care is necessary at this time of thc year in keeping them growing. They must be protected in some way from tho heat of tho sun, otherwise many of them will ' wilt' away in a single rlnv. Tho bods rnntnrninp- tho nrnw ing plant,s should have their surfaces stirred lightly, and they should also be thoroughly mulched. Well-rotted manure or litter is best for this pur pose, and tho crops thnt most re quire this treatment are peas and beans. Unless these can be prote^tad in tho manner indicated, and are kept well supplied with water, they will not make any progress during tho hot months.
