SPLICING WIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
"J.G.Y." (Fremantle) writes:—In the &nbsp; SUNDAY TIMES of the 25th ult., I observe in the Farm Notes a diagram showing a handy knot for wire fences, which in sailor parlance is termed a reef knot. Now, as this is rather hard to a novice to make, allow me to give you another known throughout New Zealand by fencers on the Yankee Splice for wire fence, the diagram of which I attach to this, and the benefit of this one is the harder you strain your wire the better and smaller the knot becomes. Having done a little fencing in that part of the world, I much prefer this one to any other in exis- tence, being easier made and never slips:— Diagram of the Yankee Splice for Wire Fences
POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
Incubators ought to be placed in a room or cellar where there are no draughts. &nbsp; Do not use eggs ever ten days old for an incubator. &nbsp; &nbsp; Put the eggs in the machine in the morn- ing. You have then a trial run of 12 hours. Discard all abnormal-sized eggs, either &nbsp; too large or too small. Start turning eggs on third day at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Test all eggs on the tenth day. The brooder ought to be started at 95deg. Feed the chicks on hard boiled egg chopped fine. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Give water in shallow vessels. &nbsp; &nbsp; Run brooder for the first fortnight at 95deg., reduce to 90deg., for second week and 85deg. for the third week; afterwards 70deg. if the &nbsp; weather is warm. The principal thing to use in working an &nbsp; incubator is common sense. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Clean brooders daily and renew wi...
ORCHARD WORK. HINTS FOR FRUIT GROWERS. No. VI. Cultivation. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
HINTS FOR FRUIT GROWERS. Br J. C. BLACKMORE AND S.I. FITCH (New Zealand Experts). &nbsp; &nbsp; No. VI. Cultivation. There is no doubt that he unsatisfactory condition of the fruit trees to be found in many orchards is due in a great measure to want of the necessary cultivation of the soil. It is plainly to be seen that fruit trees will &nbsp; not thrive unless the land is thoroughly tilled. Yet the question, strange though it may seem, is often asked, "Should an or- chard be cultivated? Would not the trees do as well among grass?" Experience replies that thorough cultivation is indispen- sible if you desire to maintain your trees any length of time in a healthy condition and expect good-crops. A glance only at an orchard in grass in comparison with one well tilled and tended, is sufficient to show that an orchardist cannot grow a crop of weeds and grass and a crop of fruit at the same time. The unsatisfactory condition and appearance of the trees in grass at...
JARRAHDALE JACKANAPES. REPLIES TO "ANTI-SERANG NO. 3." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
JARRAHDALE JACKANAPES. REPLIES TO "ANTI-SERANG NO. 3." "Atheist" writes :—Never since the day when, according to "Punch's" fa- &nbsp; mous cartoon, Lord John Russell wrote "No Popery" upon Wiseman's fence and then ran away affrighted at his own audacity, has there been a more insipid exhibition of vindictive cowardice than that of "Anti-Serang No 3," who appears to have been in such hot haste to lie like a gas meter &nbsp; on behalf of the person whose creature he is that he totally disregarded that text from the Book of Proverbs, which reads : "He that answereth be- fore he heareth (the end of a question) showeth himself to be a fool and worthy of confusion." In fact, I am certain that had "Anti-Serang No. 3" been possessed of an ordinary amount &nbsp; of that intelligence which distinguishes Man from Beast, he would not have undertaken the task of defending a man who dare not defend himself. He asserts that W. E. Keetley is a capable officer. This I absolut...
FOOTBALL AUSTRALIAN GAME. YESTERDAY'S RESULTS. East Fremantle v. West Perth. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
AUSTRALIAN GAME. YESTRDAY'S RESULTS. East Fremantle v. West Perth. This match was played on the Fremantle &nbsp; &nbsp; Oval yesterday, a good crowd being present. The weather was beautifully fine, and the ground in perfect condition. Wildy cap- tained the West Perth in place of Loel, who does not like the captain- &nbsp; ship, as it greatly interferes with &nbsp; his play. Chadwick led the blue and whites &nbsp; into the field. West Perth won the toss, and kicked towards the pavilion. Annois, Attwell, and Doig stood down from the East ranks, their places being filled by Ike &nbsp; Newton, Fisher and Gallagher. The last- &nbsp; mention player is an ex-Adelaide man, and made his first appearance in this match, in Westralian senior football, Skipper Chad- wick placing him half-forward. The West team was the same as last Saturday, with the exception of Cullen and E. Smith, who did battle in place of two of the lesser lights of the...

South Fremantle v. Subiaco. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
South Fremantle v. Subiaco. &nbsp; The above teams met on the North Fre- mantle Oval yesterday afternoon, the weather being fine and very little wind pre- vailing. There were only about a couple &nbsp; hundred people present, mostly supporters of one club or the other. The play was for the most part of a a very poor description, rough and tumble being the order of the day. The umpire's whistle was very much in evidence, and a great many "frees" were given on both sides, but the majority of &nbsp; them were against the South. Subiaco &nbsp; tried two new men in Burbanks and Gren- nie. Patterson was included in place of &nbsp; Morton for the South. Subiaco rushed things at the bounce, and soon had the South goal in danger. Gren- nie tried for a goal at a sharp angle, but only a behind resulted. The red and whites rallied, and by the aid of Gibson and Shaw, both of whom put in some really good work, the play was transferred to the other end. Some...
BRITISH ASSOCIATION. Ex-Students v. Fremantle Reserves. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
This game was played in the Fremantle Park yesterday, and resulted in a draw, neither side scoring. From the kick-off play was fairly even for a time, when Hollis, of the Ex-Students, scored and passed to Tuke on the right, who took the ball well down the field, and some good head work on both sides ended in a scrum in front of the goal, Harling just managing to scrape the ball from off the goal. Smith and Cross, oon the left, put in some conspicuous play and &nbsp; made a good run down without result. The Reserves began to shake things up, and Stephen and Bower had plenty of work to keep the Reserve in check. Tuke, on the right, again centred well, which caused the goalkeeper some hard graft, and had the Students' forwards rushed up the score &nbsp; would have presented a different aspect. Higham and Gill were playiug well together for the Reserve, and almost scored on several occasions. The whistle went at half-time, with the scores even. &nbsp; &nb...
FREMANTLE DOG AND POULTRY SHOW [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
FREMANTLE DOG AND POULTRY SHOW. It is necessary to say a word about the &nbsp; Fremantle Dog and Poultry Show, which is to eventuate on the the 27th and 28th of this month. We observe on the committee the names of H. Beale, A. H. Dumble, A. Ellery, and C. Mitchell. Here is the anomoly—Dumble, Ellery, and Mitchell are exhibitors, and Beale is appointed judge. Mr. Beale. we believe, recently took a trip to Victoria to purchase birds for this show. Among the fowls he brought back were two game cocks—one black-red Malay and one British game—for A. H. Dumble, and both these birds are to be exhibited, and Mr. Beale is to judge them! Is this fair to other competitors? Is it just and right to look at &nbsp; from any point of view? People are fast faith in these poultry exhibitions, which ap- pear to be run to advertise the stock of wire- pulling cliques on the committee.

THEATRICAL. CREMORNE. "NECK OR NOTHING." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
THEATRICAL. &nbsp; CREMORNE. "NECK OR NOTHING." The production of Henry Pettitt and &nbsp; &nbsp; George Conquest's play, "Neck or Nothing," was a large order for the Cremone Com- pany, hampered as they are for stage room. Nevertheless, on the whole the piece went &nbsp; splendidly, and every local difficulty was &nbsp; surmounted. The character of Paaul Dave- nant, alias Woronzoff, was played admirably by Mr. F. C. Mortyne. Of the other characters, Mr. C. Byrant as Colonel Eger- ton, Mr. Hugh Wilson as Alphonse Greno- ville, Mr. Geo. Jones as Jonathan Bull, and Mr. Tom Curran as John Davenant, were the most ably sus- tained. Miss Ettie Williams, as Nadine, acted with mach spirit. As the Countess &nbsp; Woronzoff, Miss Emmie Smith did not &nbsp; appear quite at home, and once or twice seemed to "stick!" Miss Fanny Wiseman was excellent, and she and Mr. Geo. Jones were responsible for the comedy of the play, which they interpret...

HOI SWITZERLAND DEFENDS HERSELF. THE NEWLY FORTIFIED ST. GOTHARD ROADWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
HOW SWITZERLAND DE- FENDS HERSELF. THE NEWLY FORTIFIED ST. GOTHARD ROADWAY. &nbsp; During April the Swiss Govern- ment broke off diplomatic relations with the Italian Government. In most other countries this would be equal to a declaration of war, but Europe refused to take the rupture seriously. The Italian Minister at the Swiss Court wished the Federal &nbsp; Government to persecute an Anarchist &nbsp; journal, "Le Reveil," for the publica- &nbsp; tion of a series of articles which that &nbsp; sensible diplomat considered insulting to the memory of King Humbert, and defending Bresci, the Monza assassin. &nbsp; The Federal Council resented this as a foreign attempt to dictate to them the the interpretation of their own law. Thereupon the Swiss Government requested the Italian Government to recall Commendatore Silvestrelli. The Italian Government declined, and the Swiss thereupon broke off official re- lations with Silvestrelli, and th...
AN AUSTRALIAN AIRSHIP. HOW IT IS CONSTRUCTED, AND WHAT IT WILL BE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 15 June 1902
AN AUSTRALIAN AIRSHIP. HOW IT IS CONSTRUCTED, AND WHAT IT WILL BE. Australia is not likely to be be- &nbsp; hind the rest of the world in serial &nbsp; navigation. Mr. C. Whittell, of Peters- ham, has designed, and is haring con- structed, an airship which gives pro- &nbsp; mise of being equal in practical results &nbsp; to anything that has yet been at- tempted in Europe. Writing about his "flying machine," Mr. Whittell says:— &nbsp; The actual idea of construction is &nbsp; based upon the well-known water- tight compartment principle adopted in ship-building, there being three sepa- rate chambers—central (above the upper portion of the frame work), front and rear—which, for aerial navi- gation purposes, ensures the mainten- ance or control of the centre of gravity. "Therefore in the event of accidental escapement of gas from the forward chamber, it is overcome by a control- ling valve (in the centre and upper surface of the chamber) ...
