It was separated and established as Baine County on December 7, 1866, by the first postwar legislature, was named for General David W. Baine of the Confederate Army; the county seat was designated as Gadsden. Because of postwar tensions and actions of insurgents against freedmen, a state constitutional convention was called in 1868. During it, this new county was abolished, replaced on December 1, 1868 by one aligned to the same boundaries and named Etowah County, from a Cherokee language word. Most of the Cherokee had been removed in the 1830s to Indian Territory west of the Mississippi River.

Pioneer Cottage, Buderim

Pioneer Cottage is a heritage-listed homestead at 5 Ballinger Crescent, Sunshine Coast Region, Australia. It was built c. 1882. It is known as JK Burnett residence, it was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992. The residence now known as Pioneer Cottage was erected in the early 1880s for Buderim Mountain settlers John Kerle Burnett, his wife Ann North and family, it remains one of the oldest surviving sawn-timber houses on the plateau, functions as a house museum and headquarters of the Buderim Historical Society. JK Burnett was the eldest son of schoolteacher John Burnett and his wife Jane Kerle, who with their 9 children emigrated to Queensland from Somerset, England, in 1866, they were accompanied on the voyage by Ann North, whom JK Burnett married in 1867. The Burnett family took up land at Burpengary. Several of the sons gained experience in the sugar mills around Caboolture and in the Tingalpa-Ormiston district, became connected with the development of both the sugar and timber industries after the Separation of Queensland - on the north coast at Buderim Mountain, at Wellington Point southeast of Brisbane.

From the early 1860s, Buderim Mountain had been extensively logged, principally for the fine stands of red cedar and white beech, shipped to Brisbane via William Pettigrew's wharf on the Mooloolah River. In 1870 the plateau was opened for selection. Many of the first selections were taken up purely for their timber resources, early agriculturalists made an income from timber while clearing the land. By the mid-1870s, sugar cane was grown extensively in the area, with planters utilising South Sea Islander labour. Buderim Mountain sugar planters John Fielding and his son-in-law Joseph Chapman Dixon, established the mountain's first sugar mill in October 1876. At that time John Kerle Burnett and his brother Harry moved from Burpengary to Buderim to take up work at Fielding and Dixon's mill. JK Burnett's wife and young family arrived a few weeks later, they resided in Thomas Ridley's house - most the small slab house which Ridley had erected on his selection by July 1874. In November 1878, John Kerle Burnett purchased portion 49, parish of Mooloolah, for £15, obtaining the deed of grant in March 1879.

The block was part of an earlier forfeited 40 acres selection, half of, reserved for school purposes in 1877, the remaining 20 acres sold to Burnett. It was centrally located, adjacent to the school reserve, at the intersection of two principal roads. On part of this land Burnett built his family home c. 1882/83. In the Caboolture Divisional Board Valuation Registers of 1881 and 1882, portion 49 is recorded as unimproved. There does not appear to be a record for 1883, but by 1884 the property was improved with a sawn house and stables - to refer to Pioneer Cottage. Early in 1882 JK Burnett raised a mortgage of £100 on the property, which may have been associated with the construction of the house; the house was built of local timbers - tallow wood for floor bearers, white beech for floors and ceilings and red cedar for joinery - thought to have been felled on the property or acquired from nearby, pit-sawn and handcrafted to make boards. Bricks for steps and a fireplace were hand-made from local clay.

The core comprised a central hallway and 4 rooms - front parlour, front bedroom, rear dining room and rear bedroom. The latter was partitioned into two bedrooms at a some stage - some Burnett descendants believe it was always partitioned. A short time two attic bedrooms were added. Early photographs of the house show external walls of deep boards and exposed timber stud framing, encircled by verandahs and resting on low stumps; the high-pitched shingled roof had a short ridge, the verandah roofs shingled, were supported on plain chamfered timber posts. Glass and timber-panelled French doors opened onto the verandahs from all rooms; the first front steps had been replaced by 1907 with masonry steps. Between early 1907 and mid-1909, the verandah roofs were replaced with corrugated galvanised iron. An external oven and chimney is shown in the earliest photograph, dated c. 1880, but a detached kitchen wing was built. In 1880 a second sugar mill - The Buderim Mountain Sugar Company Mill - was established by local growers, with financial backing from James Campbell and Sons.

By 1884, JK Burnett had left his employment with Dixon and Fielding to take up the management of the Company mill, with his brother Ernest employed as sugar boiler. The mill was located below a short distance from JK Burnett's home. At this period there were still only 7 farming families on Buderim Mountain: Fielding, Guy, Lindsay and Ballinger, but they were able to support two sugar mills. Buderim farmers appear to have made a good return from the Company mill. Between 1881 and 1884, many of the early slab homes were replaced with sawn-timber houses, by the late 1880s a small village had developed around the intersection of the two principal roads on the mountain, with a state school, School of Arts, general store, blacksmith's shop, 3 or 4 residences, the Buderim Mountain Sugar Company Mill. However, from 1885, legislation designed to curtail the employment of South Sea Islanders on sugar plantations forced most Buderim Mountain sugar planters to turn to alternative crops - principally bananas and other fruits.

Col. J. Hinckley House

The Col. J. Hinckley House is a single-family home located at 210 High Street in Fenton, Michigan, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. This house was built in 1868 by Colonel J. Hinckley. Little else is known about Col. Hinckley, but the house was occupied by a string of Fentonville's most prominent businessmen; these included nineteenth century industrialist, A. J. Phillips, dry goods merchant Brent Birdsall, First National Bank of Fentonville founder David Latourette, and, in the 1920s, Aetna Cement Company president Earl Bunce; the Col. J. Hinckley House has an Italianate massing, with two square sections with wide overhanging hip roofs, fitted together in an L-shaped configuration. However, the house lacks the typical Italianate ornamentation; the lack of ornamentation highlights the home's interesting exterior finish if stucco, applied by Bunce to the facades of his brick home

Princess Princess (manga)

Princess Princess is the title of a fictional series written and illustrated by Japanese author Mikiyo Tsuda about the lives of three high school boys and the school they attend. The series is contained within multiple media pieces which began as a manga first serialized in the manga magazine Wings starting in 2002. After the first manga series ended, a sequel entitled Princess Princess + started serialization in the same magazine in May 2006, finished in January 2007. An anime has since been adapted from the manga and began airing in Japan on April 5, 2006, produced by the Japanese animation studio, Studio Deen. A live action adaptation called Princess Princess D aired in Japan from June 28, 2006 to September 13, 2006. A visual novel video game for the PlayStation 2 based on the series was released on October 26, 2006 in Japan. Princess Princess is a story revolving around the lives of three boys chosen to dress up as girls at the all-boy school they attend, which just happens to be the most elite school in the area.

The main protagonist, Toru Kouno, has just transferred to a new all-boys school, after living with his uncle for a time. He is one such boy chosen to be one of the Hime or "Princesses", a tradition at the school in order to break up the monotony of life surrounded by nothing but males. Students are selected to be Princesses and are made to dress up as girls and attend school functions like this. At the beginning of the story, there are two such Princesses, Yuujirou Shihodani and Mikoto Yutaka, known as the Western Princess and Eastern Princess due to their room location. Toru is convinced into becoming a Princess soon after entering the school though once he accepted the job, he found it to be much more enjoyable than he thought. A candidate for a Princess must be a first year student of the school since they: have more free time from school work, their bodies have not developed, they can wear girls' outfits. From all the first years, those with the best looks and most-suited personalities are chosen to be Princesses.

However, if one only has good looks but is not popular, that person will not be chosen. The Princesses' duties consist of: wearing girl's clothes to morning meetings or school events, encouraging others at school, cheering at school events. Students who are required to be Princesses cannot refuse the position; when there is a conflict between a Princess' work and school classes, absence from class or leaving early can be considered as a school vacation, the absence will not show up on his attendance record. Every month the Princesses receive thirty school luncheon vouchers each. Therefore, when they eat at school, they do not have to pay. All necessary school supplies are covered by the Princess budget, the largest in the whole school; the Princesses will receive partial profit they can use as pocket money from the photography club that takes pictures of the Princesses and sells them to other students. The school rules require the photography club to share profits with whoever serves as model for the photos they sell, the photographs of the Princesses are the most sought-after.

Toru Kouno Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama, Takeru Satoh He is the primary protagonist of the story who transfers to an all-boys school and becomes one of the Princesses. He seems enthusiastic about it since all the Princesses added luxuries, his parents died in an accident, when his uncle and aunt adopted him. He seems to be reluctant about spending time with his family, which has to do with his younger step-sister Sayaka, who has an unhealthy obsession with him, he uses his job as a Princess as a distraction from the problems he has with his family and in effect gets into acting like a Princess, much like Yuujirou. He teams up with Yuujirou to tease Mikoto, much to Mikoto's chagrin. Yuujirou jokingly says he and Toru are lovers—in fact when Toru's stepsister, comes looking for Toru, Yuujirou kisses him to scare her away, he reveals to Yuujirou on a day off of school that his ideal girl is the comforting type, which leads to the latter comically asking if Akira fit that type. When Toru answers yes, he seems get flustered.

Yuujirou Shihoudani Voiced by: Romi Park, Ray Fujita The Eastern Princess, he is a confident boy and doesn't have many problems with dressing up like a girl in front of other people. He likes to tease Mikoto because he thinks it's fun how Mikoto reacts, he has distanced himself from the rest of his family because he thinks that his mother, step-father, younger half-brother together are the "perfect family". As the series progress, Yuujirou become quite close to Toru. Toru is the first person he opened up to, he and Toru team up against Mikoto when Mikoto is at odds with them concerning Princess duties. This gets Mikoto to end up agreeing with them since they hold leverage over Mikoto who doesn't want his girlfriend to find out about him being a Princess. Yuujirou's idea of a girl for him is one with a perfect figure. Mikoto Yutaka Voiced by: Tetsuya Kakihara, Kenta Kamakari The Western Princess, he is more reluctant than the other two Princesses to cross-dress because he does not want his girlfriend Megumi to find out about it.

As such he is nonetheless a reliable character—he stubbornly whines and complains about things the Princesses have to do but always ends up doing them anyway whether he's forced to or not. He i
