OUT OF THE ARMY. A 'DEUCED HARD CASE!' , The dismissal of Harold James Carroll from the Army has placed him in an awkward predicament, and has aston ished every one who knows him ^ He won his way in two years from the - ranks to a commission in the Connaught ? Rangers, and then, as already reported in the 'Express,' finding that his pay of 5s 3d a day would not cover his diurnal expenses of 7s Gd, he sold his kit and enlisted with his brother as a pri vate In the Royal Irish. After a few days at the depot at Clon mel he confided the facts of his case to an officer, and after the War Office had inquired into them, his services wore dispensed with as both officer and pri vate. An 'Express' representative saw him at the depot of the Royal Irish yester day. He was still wearing his khaki uniform, and felt his position very keenly. 'It is too bad,' he said, 'after my service and all my striving to get on that I am told to clear out at a few hours' notice. I thought at least that 1 should...

HANS BRIETMANN. CHARLES GODFREY LELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 31 January 1907

HANS BRIETMANN. CHARLES GODFREY LELAND. Lady Strachcy writes in tho Lon don ' Daily News' concerning a biography of Charles Godfrey Le land, recently computed by his niece, Elizabeth Robert Pennell : — It is not the inevitable practice of tho gods to destroy young thoso thev love : occasionally, though rare ly, they show their affection by en dowing the fortunate moral with peculiar gifts, and seeing to it that lie derives the- greatest possible amount of enjoyment out of them. Charles Godfrey Leland seems to have been a case in point. A mystic, lie was born on thi- luckiest birthday of tho year according to both Bud dhist and Christian calendars, and was blest with a reputed sorceress for nurse who secured his prospects as a future wizard and scholar by leaving the now-born infant in a garret with a Bible, a key, and a knife on his breast, and candles, money, and a plate of salt at his head. Eager for all adventure, he fell into the seething cauldron of Paris in the very nick of ti...

FAMOUS BITS OF LONDON. WHERE GREAT AUTHORS WROTE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 31 January 1907

?FAMOUS BITS OF LONDOI?. WHERE GREAT AUTHORS WROTE. Overcrowded London has neither the space nor the sentiment to preserve inviolabletlie houses in which its classic writers passed tho best part of their lives or invested with imaginative in terest. The metropolis, always con gesting, ever destroying and recon structing, is a stratum of literary asso ciation age by age; the homes of the urea t litterateurs of one century dis appearing before the coming of their .successors. Two books published recently in Tx-n- don, 'Literary London,' by Elsie Lang,' aud 'Paradise Row,' by Ilegi liaUWBlunt, help (writes the 'Daily MairO to preserve in compact form the memories of these vanished or hidden associations. To-day hardly n vestige can be seen of tho particular bits of London which Shakespeare made interesting. The Apothecaries' Ilall stands upon the site of a theatre which he helped Burbage to manage.

REVIEWED BY AUTHORESS THE VIPER OF MILAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 31 January 1907

REVIEWED BY AUTHORESS I ? ? ? THE VIPER OF MILAN. 'M.A.P.' has lately adopted the plan of allowing authors to review their own books. The following of The Viper of Milan, by Marjorie Bowen, may be taken as a very fair specimen: — However impersonally the author --»..u,nr. Ot- Vila wnrk. however he takes it up in cold blood and tries to survey it Indifferently, he finds a trouble some, though delicate, difficulty In rid ding himself of a certain curious tender- t ness for those very faults he Is most awA-re of, and a certain wilful pride in those very good points (as he continues to consider them) that other people have either not approved of or Ignored. To find a critic who praises you where you would (if you dared) praise yourself is as rare as it is exquisitely delightful, and half the pang of adverse opinion is the feeling (impossible to suppress) that it is not justified; not that the most vain of us pretend to be faultless, but that we always feel passionately convinced that th...

TWO FRIENDLY FRENCHMEN. ENGLISH GIRLS AT FRENCH SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 31 January 1907

TWO FRIENDLY FRENCHMEN. ENGLISH GIRLS AT FRENCH SCHOOLS. In an address at the Women's Insti tute, Victoria street, Miss Wickstead de precated sending young English girls to school in France, and warned parents that in no case should a girl be sent un less under the control of someone known to them. Even in the case o{ students of ma turer years, the lecturer said that con siderable strength of character was ne cessary in order to avoid acquiring the exaggerated feeling of freedom from convention which the English women af fect abroad. Miss Wickstead drew a comparison be- ; tween the diligence of the French and I the English students, scarcely flattering ! to the latter, and emphasised the fact that want of tact and courtesy was no un- J common faJ''ng ot our nation abroad. ! 'The EngJIan am. charming, except when they are here,' is a French saying. If the English woman goes to France, s'no said, let her select her pension with care, nnd learn tho manners and cus toms of the country,...

FORMALIN AS A REMEDY FOR SCOUR. The use of formalin is now being ad vised as a preventive of scour In calves.

The condition demands a method stroy the fermentative and putrefactive bacteria, whether they are located in the miik, In the unclean feeding vessels, pr in the stomach or bowels of the calf. It has been found that formalin in the pro portion of one part to 4000 parts of milk prevents the development of the com mon. ^bacteria.

A FATTI STORY. 'A BARGAIN'S A BARGAIN.' Once, after e concert in Ohio, Mme. Patti Was present at a supper at which many singers and local notabilities, in cluding Judge Matthews, were present. Supper over, Matthews pressed Ma dame to sing, but the Diva showed no inclination to oblige. 'Sing, and I'll do anything you like, ' pleaded Mat- I thews in despair. 'Anything?' asked Patti. 'Anything,' repeated the usu ally grave lawyer with emphasis. So the young vocalist sang 'Home, Sweet Home.' 'Now, Mr Matthews,' she began when the song was over, 'please stand on your head.' 'Gracious! You're joking, child,' gasped the lawyer. 'Not at all,' replied the singer. 'A bargain's a bar gain.' 'So it is,'' answered the master of equity; 'and here goes.' And up in the air went his feet amidst the frantic i applause of the assembled company.— I 'M.A.P.'
