A French naturalist bas discovered a tiny crab which lodges with the oyster. The mollusc gives it shelter, and in return enjoys the scraps of its meals. An- other naturalist has lound a pigmy crab in- i side the shell of the sea urchin among the coral islands of the Pacific.

Another tree found in thePacifio Island, and known as the candle-nut, yields a large quantity of oil, while the kernels are strung together on a stick and lighted as a candle. The fruit of the candle-tree is be- tween three and four feet in length, abouA an inch in diameter, and of a yellowish, col-, our.

A HEALTH MATTER. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 10 December 1907

A HEALTH MATTER. I i Gr. Street stated he had an,unplea- sant matter to refer to, and that was the drainage of Kuranda. Some four years ago permission wus given to JU rs. Remilton to put a drain unde aeath the road. To do that it was necessary to encroach on the police reserve and no objection was raised by the officers of thc law. It now ap- peared there was only just sufficient water to keep the drain flushed, and although the liquid refuse sank into the ground thc solid matter remained on thc surface. If something was not done immediately there would be a serious outbreak of typhoid. Tho Council were in somewhat of a diffi- culty regarding this nuisance, as if the drain were continued to the Bar- ron River there would at once be an outcry against this by residents ow- ing to the water being poisoned. lt was decided to rqrfuest Mrs. Rem- . ilton to kecri the drain clear, other- wise it would have to be removed. The usual compliment to the chair concluded thc meeting.
