Unlicensed Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Unlicensed Dogs. It appears that Dog Act» and Municipal ( Collectors, notwithstanding, there are still in Perth a number of canine inhabitants who have not, as yet, got their " tickets of leave" to roam through the streets, and to dwell' with their owners. The number appears to be large, but no one has yet found it possible to exercise any proper check over those responsible for thou. It is said that armed with the terrors of the law the city collector has awakened the consciences of a few dog owners. But such conscience prickings , are very few, and, we fear, futile. Even should the collector be a perfect Welling- ton in his reverence for the.word "duty" he may not find it possible to practically exhibit it to any great extent. The canine pest is increasing every year. The dogs are, to all intents and purposes, ownerless, and they ought to be pat oat of ¿he way. The streets of Perth do not, like those of ' Constantinople, require a tribe of canine ''' scavengers to keep them clean....

Where are they to be Lodged? [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Where are they to be Lodged ? J One hundred and fifty emigrants, are now on their way from England to this -colony. Such an addition to our popula- tion, provided it be of the right sort, will, «f course be welcomed. There íb plenty of room for them, and the labour market is lar from filled. But, there is one side of «he picture which has, as yet, scarcely á^V,!iB*'ití4;w - been looked at. Where are they to live [ until they are absorbed amongst the em- ployers. But lately some twenty immi- grants arrived by the River Clyde, and some of them, it is said, experienced all but insuperable difficulty in procuring house accommodation. In the past, im : migrants, upon their arrival, have been j temporarily placed in the Home, or < lodged at boarding houses, until they [ have found employment, or their nomina- tors have sent for them. But whatever accommodation there may be to spare in the Home or the boarding houses, it is manifestly certain there will not be suffic- ient for m...

Summer Clothing. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Summer Clothing. After the long spell of heat, the cool weather of the past few days has proved a wholesome treat. Th« summer season of 1885-6 will long be remembered as one one of the hottest on record, and may serve as a standard of companion for years to come. Since Ohristmas ¡ day we have been subjected to intol-i érable spells of beat. Those who prefer- red to jstudy comfort rather than onstom were filad to wear as little clothing as possible and that of the coolest descrip- tion. Cool light apparel is in summer, quite as necessary as a lighter food, and it is satisfactory to notioe, that as regards clothing, Western Australians are gradually, year by yesr, conforming less to that convention which, demands that its followers shall don heavy tweeds and innumerable articles of clothing. It is to be hoped that before long, the people will cease to forget the difference between an English and an Australian climate. It is said that the orthodox colour worn by the shop-girls elsewher...

Land Slip. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Land Slip. fJLThe Trieste papers give interesting par Ticulars of the startling aecident that hap- pened at the beginning of this menth at the little village of Grahovo, near Fiume. At .?eight o'clock in the evening the people felt the ground slipping away from nnder their feet, and cracks began to appear in the walls of the houses. Those who were indoors rushed out, taking with them whatever they could carry, and thus no life was lost. About midnight a great moaning sound was heard from underneath, while the ground continued to slide away slowly. Thus mingled with the sound of the falling houses, created great terror among the inhabitants. Next morning only two houses were still standing, -and the sliding of the ground continued the ¡.great part of the day, varied by cieits in the -ceil and dull detonations.

Education and Insanity. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Education and Insanity. Does excessive brain-work tend to the in- duction of insanity f In general, the answer io this query by professed alienists íb that .mental work pure and simple doeB not tend SSK« i?1 *{.»..& i'' à > ' i to the induction of insanity. But the pro- position is not so fully est&blishea but that additional proofs are very welcome. Dr. O. Evert, in the " American Practitioner," gives the result of his large experience. From this we give a few facts bearing on the query. From 1870 to 1876, he admitted into the general insane asylum of Ohio 1,204 patients. Of these, but 17 had received an academic education. Only 25 professed to be professional men ; of these 12 were law- yers, 9 were medical men, and 4 were preachers.

Jewish Exiles. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Jewish Exiles. At the present time a very great strain is being put upon the resources of the Jewish Board of Guardians through the influx of .Jews into London, who have been expelled from Germany. These are, it appears, indust irions and deserving artisans, who have been ; driven into exile simply because-they were :not born in Germany., The number of these poor people arriving in London is daily in« -creasing. What adds to the difficulty with which the Jewish Board of Guardians has to , cope is the arrival recently of a number of »Jews from Roumania and Russia, those from the former country having been expelled by virtue of a discretionary law voted in 1881 "by the Roumanian Chambers, and intended te be applied to. vagrants who had no home ?and who did no work. It may be added that 95 per cent, of the Jews relieved at the Jew- ish workhouse in Devonshire Square are ~W$oreigners. These people cannot get employ ,;rment, as the industries to which thoy belong ^j&re already ov...

A Narrow Escape. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

A Harrow Escape. A singular accident is reported from Swan- sea, where a prisoner and a policeman nar- rowly escaped serious injury. While a pri- soner was being conveyed in the prisoner's van from the Guildhall station to the gaol the horse shied at a piece of white paper ly- ing in the street and at once bolted. The body of the van suddenly gave way and top- pled over backwards into the roadway with its occupants ; the driver's bax and the wheels, with the driver, went on for some distance, however, leaving the astonished prisoner and officer in the street. Fortu- nately neither of them sustained injuries be- yond being severely shaken. The prisoner , -was afterwards marched off to the lockup, ?and the poliooman returned to head quarters to get assistance to remove the van, which was broken in two by the falL

A Musician's Capriciousness. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

A Musician's Capriciousness. A characteristic story of Hans Yon BuIow'b recent concert tour relates that at a certain entertainment for a charitable object he walked on, made his how, and hurriedly walked eff the stage. The astonished mana- ger demanded what ailed him. " You do na, expect me to play with those ugly witches gazing at me from the front row of seats ?" was the sharp rejoinder. " But my dear Billow," implored the manager, " they are the first ladies of the place ; all are per- sons of rank and position, and they have done a great deal towards getting up the concert. I cannot tell them to take back seats. Do be reasonable and play your numbers." Until these women are removed I will not play a note, so you may do as you please about it," was the grim reply. The manager stepped npon the stage, announced that Herr Yon Bulow had become sud- denly indisposed and the orchestra would play a symphony which, was to have been given later on in the even- ' ing. Then he had a number...

A Happy Inspiration. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

A Happy Inspiration. The following by the Melbourne corres- pondent of the Ararat. Advertiser is too good to be lost :-" It was a dry day, and the audit was proceeding. ¡Suddenly a brilliant idea occurred to one of the two in slavery-you know bow auditors toil-over the annual in- vestigation. 'Please show me your petty cash book, Mr.-.' The cash book was produced. 'Ah, I Bee,' said the sagacious auditor, as he ran over the columns-' broom 5s ; broom Ss ; broom 5s. Seems to cost a lot to keep this hall clean, eh ?' ' Yes, sir,' said the secretary, * we do have to use a good many brooms, I must say,' ' Well,' said the auditor, laying down his pen as he spoke, * I tell you what it is-I don't proceed one bit further with this audit until you buy another broom.' The secretary realised the situation instantly, went out, and almost immediately returned with a ' broom' in each pocket-one labelled'Dunville,'the other "Hennessy."
