[?] In rambling round on Sunday last, our reporter called in at Mr. Jas. Fisher's, and had a look round his dairy and herd, which will compare favorably with any herd in tlie dis trict, the cows having been caretully selected, with a view to their milk producing qualities. Mr. Fisher has only been dairying some 18 months, and during that time has put to gether a splendid herd, some of tho cows costing him from £15 to £16. Ho started in a small way, and gradually worked up, and is now milking 50 cows, nearly all j-oung, the majority being on their 'first and second calf ; -while there are some 20 forward springers to come in shortly, making the dairy herd up to 70 head.

DEAD MAN'S GOLD. THE CHANCELLOR'S GOOD FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
DEAD MAN'S GOLD. THE CHANCELLOR'S GOOD FOR- I TUNE. 1 Mr George Herring's estate, which has just been sworn for probate, will assist tine Chancellor of the Exchequer \ery ma terially in his efforts to provide a sur plus. It means another L120.000 to the Budget. It will remind Mr Asquitli once more of the debt we owe to Sir Will am Har court's Death Duties. - Death has been busy this year among the millionaires, who may justly claim to be the smallest and most exclusive of the classes. Since the year opened fifteen fortunes of more ?than one mil lion pounds have become the prey of the Treasury. The mortality in the rallies of the millionaires has become increas ingly serious since the financial year commenced, for of the fifteen million- , aires who have left their gold behind ' them, eleven have died since last April, beginning with Sir Charles Tennant and ending with Mr George Herring, the rugged but kindly man whose magnifi cent bequest to the London hospitals is announced. The lo...
A COMPETING PASTOR. WOMAN WHISTLER IN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
A COMPETING PASTOR. WOMAN WHISTLER IN CHURCH. Dr. Goodchlid, pastor of ono of the oldest Baptist churches in New York, has adopted drastic measures to induce his congregation to attend, Forty-second . street, in which Dr. Goodehild's church I is situated, is colloquially known as ' Theatre Alley,' there being seven theatres and twelve theatrical boarding houses within 300 yards. These theatres give musical entertainments on Sunday nights and call them sacred concerts. Dr. Goodchild determined to meet the competition of the theatres, and recently had posted on the hoardings an an nouncement that a free concert would be given at the church by Miss Ethel Pal mer, a popular whistler. The church was packed. Miss Palmer whistled the inter- , mezzo from Cavalleri.a nustlcana before ' tho sermon, and during the offertory ren dered Robyns' Mazanilla. i The pastor, in explaining his step, said that he abhorred sensationalism, but if Mr Hammerstein, tho theatrical mana ger, drew congregations ...
THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
THE WIDE WORLD. I Slgnor Corradini, writing in the 'Glor- nalo d'ltalia' (Gth October), enters a brilliant plea for classical education, provided that it be conducted on human istic lines and not as a mere exercise In grammar. He confesses, says the Morning Post's' Rome correspondent, that the pedantic system now in vogue and borrowed from Germany, by which the 'iEneid' and the 'Odes' are con verted into stalking horses for the dis play of some purblind commentator's erudition, is working untold harm to young Italy. It makes intelligent stu dents loathe tho dry grammatical expo sitions of what should be living litera ture; it teaches them to regard the greatest poets and orators of antiquity as specimens in a museum, not as men of like passions with themselves. Hence there follows a fatal divorce between tho school and the world. In former times the Italian statesman, like Pitt, Fox, Carteret, and Gladstone, derived from the classical texts which he had thumbed at school valuable le...
SCIENSOCRACY. THE MANCHESTER SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
SCIENSOCRACY. TI-IE MANCHESTER SCHOOL. Manchester has produced a new school of thought which has been christened Sciehsocrocy. Its followers believe that in days to come the rule of many will be super seded by the rule of science. Their first general rrinciple is freedom of individuality. Under its sway men would regard bread and labor as the fun damental religious law of life. s~~ Sciensocrats say that every man should participate in the production of those things of which he ' enjoys the fruits. Government, they further say, exists only that one class may keep another in subjection, and they advocate the adop tion of a definite, consistent and scien tific policy. The Conservative parly exists, accord ing to the followers of the new cult, to administer the country in the interests of the rulers. Tho Liberals exisL as a means of checking the Conservatives, while the Labor and Socialist parties seek to break down the authority of the others and substitute plutocracy by a democracy wh...
MEDICAL SECRETS. PROFESSIONAL ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
MEDICAL SECRETS. PROFESSIONAL ETIQUETTE. In a recent breach of promise action (writes the 'Dally Mail') a medical man was closely cross-examined as to tho' professional etiquette regarding what had passed between a detective and him self. Tho medical profession certainly lays It down that such matters ought not to be divulged to third parties without the consent of the patient. And the law, too, as shown in a case a few years back, when a leading physician was mulcted in heavy damages for telling his wife about a lady patient, upholds this con tention out of court. But in the witness box a doctor is compelled by the rules of law as laid down by English judges, however confidential the communications may 'have been, to answer questions con cerning what has passed and what ho noticed. The advice usually given by writers to medical men is that they should appeal to the judge, and, though the witness will be compelled to answer questions, he will thug show that It is against his will to...

Two jackets which she had boen wearing have been found on the beach at Teignmouth, and a person Is known to have been drowned off the port.

With her tragic ending, assuming the police are right, the mys tery of her identity becomes a mystery no longer. No more tragic history than hers can be imagined. Irene Overy be longed to a family which sjems to have been haunted by tragedy. I Three weeks ago her brother commit- j ted suicide. ...

MEMORIES OF CARLISLE. A PLEASING ONE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
MEMORIES OF CARLISLE. A PLEASING ONE. ^ In his new book of essays (Macmlllan) ' Mr Frederic Harrison gives a charming v little sketch of 'The Carlyle House ' 'I ?was,' he writes, 'one of those who, - - without being in any sense intimates or : friends, were occasionally admitted to his house, and enjoyed the privilege of hear ing him talk. In response to sundry '' messages that he would see mo, I called one afternoon in Cheyne Row, and was received with a most gracious and genial courtesy. He made me feel at home at :' once, and he talked oil with a simple and hearty openness of thought, full of drollery, epigram, laughter, and racy ; ? deliverance on men and things, with warm kindliness towards his visitor, a manly forgetfulness of himself and his * position as an acknowledged master in letters, and an utter absence of embar rassment, discontent, or spleen. He rolled forth Latter-Day Pamphlets by hour together in the very words, with all tho nicknames, expletives, and ebullient tro...
HOW TO JUDGE A DOG. GENERAL RULES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
HOW TO JUDGE A DOG. GENERAL RULES. Though each breed has its particular points, a few general rules for judging dogs were laid down laitely in the 'Daily Mail,' London. The writer said:— The Kennel Club, the authority on all matters canine, has on its register 77 varieties of dogs, which are acknow ledged as distinct breeds, and these vary in size alone— to give only a few in stances — from a lady's miniature bull dog to the massive mastiff, from the slender Italian greyhound to the gigan tic Irish wolfhound, or from the cheerful little pocket beagle to the awesome and majestic bloodhound. ? All breeds are judged by fixed stand ards of points, which differ considerably in details, and It is, therefore, impossible to explain within the limits of an article how to tell the points of all kinds of dogs. To facilitate further explanations, I give a diagram showing the principal parts of a dog's body, which are men tioned in the standards of points:— These points are:— 1. Nose. 2. Nasal b...
SOIL MOISTURE. ITS IMPORTANCE AND MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
SOIL MOISTURE. ITS IMPORTANCE AND MANAGE MENT. Tho State Agricultural- College Ex perimeat Station has issued a bulletin . under this title, prepared by Joseph A. J Jeffery, Professor o£ Agronomy and Soil Physics, from which we give some liberal nnd interesting extracts. It is a sub ject that lies at the foundation of tho cultivation of the soil and its ability to produco crops. | COMPOSITION OF SOILS. i Soils are composed principally of two materials, mineral matter and organic ( matter. The mineral matter consists of frag ments of rocks, sand and clay. All ' ? these have come from the breaking down of larger masses of rock. j The organic matter consists of decom posing leaves, stems and roots of plants, ; and of the remains of the bodies of ani- j mals. When these materials are so far decomposed as to lose their form, the re sulting organic mass is called humus. In addition to these materials there are found in soils varying quantities ot salts, of potash, lime, etc., which, dis s...

A MATRIMONIAL ADVERTISEMENT. I. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
A MATRIMONIAL AD VERTISEMENT. By E. M. BAKER. I. Jeanne Urswicke sat starine at a newspaper which lay before her on a table in the A.B.C. shop where she had been having her tea. The words which riveted her attentiop were these: — 'Matrimonial. — A plain, unattractive man wishes to meet with a plain, unat tractive woman, with a view to matri mony. Age not under 30 or over 40. Ap ply personally, J. B., 103 Coventry road, E.C.'' ; A noise/in tho street recalled Joanne to herself./ She rose to her feet, and half mechanlcally folding up the paper, paid her- ''bill at the desk, and, still holding tho paper, left the shop. She Vas slight, pale, and shabbily dressed — a pathetic little figure all un noticed in the crowded street. The lines of her face were drawn and anxi ous, but her eyes were sparkling with unwonted excitement. She hurried back to her lodging, where the door was opened by a motherly-looking landlady. 'No luck to-day, Miss?' asked the wo man. Jeanne shook her head, and went...
GAOL-BIRD NOVELIST. AGAIN IN THE DOCK. HIS STRANGE ADVENTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 January 1907
GAOL-BIRD NOVELIST, A'GAIN IN THE DOCK. HIS STRANGE ADVENTURES. I On 13th November the Paris co. res pondent of the 'Daily Mail'' wrote: — The police have discovered In the rooms of a convict named Sporn, who came up for trial to-day, a manuscript entitled, 'The True Account of the Adventures of an Escaped Convict.' The book is ex tremely powerful, and several publishers are already negotiating with the author. Sporn is something of a philosopher, for the recital of his adventures is inter spersed with numerous moral reflections and appreciations on the beauties of nature, written in almost a religious strain. Sporn, as an habitual criminal, had boen ordered to live for the rest of his life in French Guiana, where he had jus finished a sentence of eight years. But he longed to revist France, and to par ticipate in his escape selected fourteen ' followers ' — 'murderers but mt thieves.' 'Each paid L2 a head towards expenses.' ? - Under the pretext of wishing to start in business as a...
