THRONE OF NAWANAGAR. PRINCE RAN.IITS lNGJI'S CLAIM. The claim of Kumar Shri Ranjit singji, the famous cricketer, to the Gadi oy Princedom of Nawanagar, in the Bombay Presidency, lias been formally submitted to Mr John Mor ley, Secretary of .State for India, in the form ot a petition, setting ioFin ? his pedigree by genealogical tablo, his , nomination and adoption as heir, and : the general grounds on which his j claim is based. . ' ltanjitsingji is tlie second of five ; sons, and his eldest brother is still ? alive, but makes no claim to the i throne. As for a collateral branch of I the family, 011 behalf of which it is j believed a claim has been put for- 1 ward, the petition grimly observes j that such a claim was forfoito.l ' 'owing to one of the .lam Sahibs having been, a generation or two previously, slain by Umrala people.' The claim of Rnn.iitsing.ii is mainly based 011 his adoption by one .lam Saheb, who, in October, 1878, 'pro- posed to the Government of India to adopt in ...
LUMINOUS EGGS. LIGHT UP A FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 17 January 1907
LUMINOUS EGGS. LIGHT UP A FARM. In a poultry yard at Pink Pea, Kansas, in tlie United States, says the 'New York World,' is a low, swampy spot that seems to be the home of the fire-fly, and ono hen stays out late of evenings to catch them. Sho gorges herself on fire flies every evening before going to roost, and It was discovered a few weelcs ago that the eggs laid by this helpful hen are nocturnally luminous, that each egg is of exceeding brightness, and that by coating therh will an impervious pre paration they retain their brilliancy for an indefinite period. So the young ladies of the farm adopted this' mode of lighting, and the seventeen rooms of the home are bril liantly lighted with these eggs, so the building, -which occupy a prominent hill, can be seen for miles. They say in Kansas that Col. Van Rensselaer uses on his 40 h.p. motor eggs instead of lamps.
AUTUMN IN ENGLAND. A REMARKABLE SEASON. SUMMER FLOWERS AND BUTTERFLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 17 January 1907
AUTUMN IN -ENGLAND. A REMARKABLE SEASON. SUMMER FLOWERS AND BUTTERFLIES. Tho anomalous weather wo havo ex perienced here lately makes specially interesting some remarks on an unusual season iu the old country. A writer in the 'Express' of 23rd October thus comnicuts on it:— Nature seems to have lost all count of tho seasons ot late. A reference to the calendar tolls us that wo are well on to wards the end of October, and nearly half-way through the autumn, but our daily experiences aro almost enough to give the calendar tho lie. Yesterday, for instance, was a delight ful summer's day, with a temperature which insisted on rising to nearly 70 degrees, instead of .stopping at 50, which the law of average gives as the maximum for October 22. The winter clothes which became ne cessary a week or two ago were the cause of rnuch suffering to those who had not taken the precaution to return 'to their summer suits, while cooling drinks were almost in as great demand as in the dog days. In the...
ROMANCE OF MAYORALTY. TO SIR WILLIAM TRELOAR. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 17 January 1907
ROMANCE OF MAYORALTY. FROM SIR RICHARD WHITTINGTON TO SIR WILLIAM TRELOAR. Tho most Impressive thing about the Mayoralty of London is its great anti quity. In Saxon and Nonnian times Lon don was an independent State, and the Chief Magistrate— the Portreeve, or the Bailiff — was an absolute ruler. The first Mayor was elected .717 years ago (11S9), and he was so popular that he retained the. office for twenty-four years. The first Lord Mayor's pageant was in the reign of Henry VIII., and in it-he figured 'as Chief Butler to Anne Bolcyn. Through the long intervening years the Lord Mayor has retained many of his prerogatives as a ruler. Most people have no idea how extensive his privileges aro. Ho has his own chaplain (in olden days, like the monarch, he had his jes ter, too) and badges of royalty are at tached to his office — the sceptre, the swords of justice and mercy, and the mace. He has right of precedence In the city before all the Royal Family. Sol diers in any numbers cannot ma...

MANTALINI IN PARIS. THE MAN DRESSMAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 17 January 1907
MANTALINI IN PARIS. THE MAN DRESSMAKER. The man dressmaker of Paris is a slim young man with a long nose and big, winsome eyes. . I Wearing a grey frock coat and patent leather shoes — corseted and powdered and perfumed — he is more than a man ; he is a dress-maker. He is saturated with dandyism. It Is not of an offen- I sive kind, says ? the 'Liverpool Daily j Post.' His manners are a strange mixture of humility and insolence, for he Is at once a tradesman and an artist. ? And he talks, talks, talks — bending his slim body into police curves— gesticulating with his thin, white hands— rolling his eyes in their painted orbits; the while he fumbles silks and velvets and satins and lace and wool. The mere man who comes into a dress maker's shop of an afternoon — in Paris no one goes -to the dressmakers save only in. the afternoon— begifevj by sneering at this fantastic creature. That mood _ does, not last long. Contempt gives way to admiration. There Is something marvellous in the way ...

NIGHT SOLACE. ! 'TIs Night who beareth for the wounds of Day I Sweet balm of healing; mighty and serene I Sho comes, with diadem of starry sheen Upon her brow to mark her royal sway. Mild ulrs are stirring, and now fades away The garish splendor of Day's color?sceno; ? The beetling rocks, before cut clear and keen, Loom eoftly, purple shadows on the gray. 1 Thue Night broods calm with mother-winga to bless, ! Melting the bitter pain, tho sore distress ?

THE GREAT BERLIN HOAX. A MEMORY OF 1830. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 17 January 1907
THE GREAT BERLIN HOAX A MEMORY OF 1830. 1 The arrest of a burgomaster (writes Karl Blind in Ihe 'Pall Mall Gazette'), I and the rifling of tho treasury of a town hail by a bogus captain who laid hold of a detachment of soldiers, may look like a comic opera trick. In revolutionary 1 I times — as, for instance, at present in j Russia — a similar deed might, however, have considerable consequences. The I history of the French Revolution of July | 1830, is there to prove it. When the people of Paris rose against t Charles X., who had issued the fatal Or ! dinances against the Press, tho question was how to get a number of troops, es pecially some superior officers, for -the support of the insurrectionary movement. Lafayette was approached, whose name had become so popular through his. share in the American War of Independence ; but ho hesitated for a good while. On | 29th July, however, a min of middle height and with strong, expressive fea I tures, clad In the' uniform of a general, an...

Far from it ; for it is made up of objects which have come from all the parts of the world into which the Jew has penetrated — and into ?which part has he not ?
