A LADY'S DEATH. AT A HUNT BALL.

Experimental Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 17 January 1907
Experimental Farm. The matter initiated by tho Myo cum Progross Association a short time ago, for the establishment of an experimental station in our district is, we hear, progressing satisfactorily. The Minister has so far recognised the justness of tho claim, in that he I has promised through Mr. Perry (who also strongly approves of the idea) to send an officer to Mullum bimby to confer with a ropresontativo body of the farmers at an early dato. It is considered that Mr. Gorman of Wollongbar will bo the one appointed, and as 110 one knows better than he does the future requirements of the dairying industry, farmers may rest satisfied that their claims will rocoivo tho consideration of a man of very ' wido experience. Wo feel confident that Mr. Gor man's verdict will be a favorable one, and trust that when tho date of his visit is announced there will bo a representative body of dairy farmers to meet him.
Byron Shire. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 17 January 1907
Byron SMre. The Shires have now recoivod their classification and Byron Shire has been placcd in the 4th class, and is entitled to endowment at tho rato of. 25s in the £ on tho proceeds of* the; the general rate. The unimproved capital value of all ratable land within the Shire is ostimated at £515,221. The proceeds of a general rate of Id in tho £ on this value are estimated at £2,147 ; and endowment for tho year 1907 at the classified rate will amount to £2,684. From this latter sum the cost of tho first election of Shire Councillors is to be deducted, and monthly instalments aro to be paid to the Council. Last month tho Land Tax was paid to the Commissioners of Taxation and it is not probable that any rates can be imposed and collectod by the Council for the most of a year. In that case the Council will only have the endowment to work upon, which, without any deductions will only amount to a little less than £224. From this monthly sum, tho En gineer's salary, Clerk's salary, ren...

THE CONSERVATORY AND POT j PLANTS. ?Now that the warm weather lias sot in it will be necessary to keep tho pot plants well watered. They will nlsc need all the ventilation that can be given them. The flowering plants, such as fuchsias, b-'-jonias, and hy drangeas, require s| eeial attention at this time of the year. If they aro ? neglected in the matter of watering they will speedily droop, ami it will be next to useless to try and' revive their flower. ! ing properties. If carefully treato;l just now and supplied occasionally with applications of liquid manure tliey will continue to bloom for some time. Moisture is an all-important factor in the management of all the house plants just now, and if they receive a sufficiency of it and plenty of fresh air they will succeed well in : tlie hottest months of the year.

The FLOWER GARDEN. I Tho best of tho flower garden has been seen for this season. Thero is still a variety of blooms, but the weather has had n damaging elToct on the general appearance and attrac tiveness of nearly all the gardens. Roses have gone lor the time. Car nations arc going off, and sweet peas are podding rapidly. There has not been so much mildew 011 the rose trees as usual, but there is still time for it to put in an ap poaranoc. A remedy fcr this disfigur ing fungus, and one that is in use in most of the European gardens and ' rosaries, is that known as the Weber 1 solution. It is made as follows ; — j Dissolve 211: of sulphate of copper in 21 quarts of water, then add -lib of slacked lime and 21b of .flowers of sulphur. Boil these together from forty to fifty minutes, keeping them stirred almost continuously. ' This makes a yellowish-green liquid, and ono quart of it is sufficient for ten quarts of rain water.

DANGER AND PHOFESSOR. A PANTOMIME SKETCH.

AN [?]IMELY REBUKE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 17 January 1907
AN *- TMELY REBUKE. The still stately form of Earl Spencer ] is occasionally to be seen in the hunting field with the Pytchley — the famous pack which he led with so much distinction for several seasons. The discipline ot ; his rule as master is, according to the 'Reader,' proverbial in the Pytchley country. This gives point to an incident which the Earl tells with gusto against himself. Turning round 011 his horse on a foggy morning in an A1 thorp pasture to rebuke some horsemen who, as he thought, were following too closely upon the heels of the hounds and in danger of overrunning them, he addressed a stern rebuke to the offenders. To his amazement and amusement he found himself addressing a small herd of his own famous shorthorn cattle, who treated with calm disdain the remarks of the. incensed sportsman. After that experience he confessed he always looked twice before admonishing a field.

HONEY. 'I-Ioney, one of the most nutritious and delicate of foods, should be eaten more than it is,' writes a cooking ex pert. 'Bought in the comb, it is bound' to be unadulterated, and will keep one free from sore throat and bronchial troubles. I know a number of ladies who use honey as a cosmetic. They ap ply it to the skin, rub it in well, then wash it off with hot water. Tho re sult is a finer-textured complexion, a glowing color, a young, fresh look.'

MOTOR-CAR TRAFFIC LONDON DETECTIVES' CRIISADE. Scotland Yard is apparently doing its best to satisfy tho numerous writers of Indignant letters concerning the mis deeds of motor-omnibuses. Each day the police arc increasing their demands for less noise and smell, and, although this may be good news for tho genoral public, the indignation of ~the owners of the vehicles has now reached the borderland of open and concerted revolt. Inquiries among the directors and managers of the motor-omnibus com panies by a 'Westminster Gazette,' re presentative clearly established the fact that the extra cost Involved in the new policy has created a feeling of alarm almost amounting to panic. With regard to Mr Worby Beaumont's statement as to excessive speed being the cause of much of the noise nuisance, there Is a disposition upon the part of the com panies to defend their men from this charge. 'I do not believe much 'furious' driv ing is indulged in,' said Mr Duff, the genoral manager of the London...
