SUIT-CASE CRIME. CONFESSIONS OF GUILT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906
SUIT-CASE CRIME. CONFESSIONS OF GUILT. The Boston correspondent of the London 'Daily Mail' wrote on 3rd November: — &nbsp; Louis W. Crawford, a son-in-law of an American divine, and William Howard were arrested last night, and identified to-day by a pawnbroker named Hackman and others from Boston as those who had bought the suit-cases in which the dismembered body of Susan Geary was found. The two men have confessed that they disposed of the remains of the unfortunate chorus-girl from a ferry boat. They did not dare to drop the cases on their first trip because of the number of passengers and the bright moonlight. They accordingly took a ride on a tramway-car, and, re-boarding the boat, dropped the head of the girl in a handbag near the dock. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The case containing the limbs was disposed of in mid-stream, and they made a third trip to dispose of the body. &nbsp; The police subsequently arrested Dr D.

A MARRIAGE TANGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906
A MARRIAGE TANGLE. &nbsp; A strange account of a wedding &nbsp; party's confusion was given to the Brentford magistrates on November 14th - when Frederick Taint, a gas-stoker, was fined 7s 6d for being drunk in the pre- cints of the Brentford Police Court. &nbsp; On Monday Taint was summoned by his wife for desertion, but his condition &nbsp; was such that his arrest was ordered. At a previous hearing he contended that &nbsp; he was not bound to support the com- plainant because his marriage was not a legal one. Yesterday Thomas Brown, a brother of the complainant, said that in his opinion the ceremony was quite legal. He added: 'On Easter Monday in 1896, Taint and my sister and me and another girl went to church to get married. We were all fairly drunk, and somehow we seemed to get mixed up. I gave away the girl I was going to marry to somebody, and my girl gave away Frederick Taint. After a bit we all got properly married, and when we were s...
WOMEN GROWING GENEROUS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 3 February 1906
WOMEN GROWING GENEROUS. At all the large establishments one finds an endless variety of presents for &nbsp; men, and it is always women who are buying them. Perhaps we women are anxious to disprove the charge laid - against us that we are less generous; perhaps it is because women have more control over money than used to be the case; anyhow, the fact remains that they certainly buy more presents for men than formerly.— 'Ambrosia,' ' in 'Tho '? World.'

Correspondence. (To the Editor Mullumbimby Star.) i Dear Sir, — In your issue of the 3rd, you, in an editorial, 'dealt with the open ing up of a new road to Cooper's Creek. This is undoubtedly a matter of, very great importance to tho people of Mul lumbimby and district, also to those now settled on the land in the direction indi cated, as well as to intending selectors. Strangers coming to the- place are quite at a loss to know where the land proposed to be thrown open for selection is situ ated, and in this respect your article has been both useful and instructive. Re ferring to the road mentioned, I would suggest that a public meeting be called without delay, and this very urgent mat ter brought before the Government, when I am sure the request would be granted. Meanwhile, I should only be too happy to supply any particulars within my knowledge to intending settlers or any person interested. Correspond ence invited. — Yours respectfully, . T. GILLARD, Auctioneer, Mullumbimby.

A NOVEL VASE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 February 1906
A NOVEL VASE Here Is a suggestion for bazaar work. I am told that the effect is very good, but think care would be required to avoid a home-made appearance. Any galipots or china jars can be used. Select odd pieces of lace, the coarser the better. Dip these in the white of egg, and place smoothly all over the outside of the pots, allowing them to stand, till quite dry. Then brush all over with liquid gold, taking care hot to leave any white spots.

Ttt£ LA»I£S' COLliflpI USEFUL HERTS. - , ; | ?, - ISABELS ON TINS.' The housewife is often troubled by tho labels on the tins In'her Btore cupboard coming off, and then she. has to open tin 'after tin till she discovers what she , wants. The reason is that the labels have been stuck on with ordinary gum 'or paste. A strong glue for fixing labels'' to tin is made thus : — To a pint of boil ing water add one ounce of powdered borax and two ounces of gum shellac, and boll all together till dissolved. DUSTING. Nothing spoils the appearance of tho hands more than getting them grimed with dust, and, therefore, every lady who helps In the dusting of -her houw should wear gioves tor the purpose. A pair of housemaid's gloves will answer every purpose. It is worth remembering that the use of a carpet sweeper. Instead of the ordinary brush, will prevent - the necessity of a great deal of dusting, for It gathers up the dust Instead of scat tering it. 'WINDOW CLEANING IN SAFETY. ; To_clean the o...

"PLACE AUX DAMES." IN WESTMINSTER ABBEY. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 10 February 1906
'PLACE AUX DAMES.' IN WESTMINSTER ABBEY. A lady correspondent of the 'West- minster Gazette' writes: — -'I was, somo timo slnco, visiting tho Poets'' Corner with a Frenchwoman. 'What?'- , sho exclaimed, as her eyes fell on the commemorative tablet to .Tenny Lind; 'in an ago which has produced Charlotte Bronte, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Mrs Gaskell, and George Eliot, is the only woman memorial ised hero a foreign opera singer? How you Englishwomen can put up with such a slight on your,, sex passes my comprehension.' Tho, French lady s astoundment is . surely not to bo 'wondered at. Madamo LindGold schmidt was an incomparable song stress — so say thoso who heard her — and an amiable, philanthropic, and excellent woman to boot. But no matter tho attainments oi -foreigners, whether naturalised or not, they have surely, no claim to a place in our national Walhalls. Here England for the English ought to bo a rule rigidly abided .by. ''WHO HAVE DESERVED WELL OF THEIR COUNTRY.' 'To say no...
