WESTRALIA'S MESSAGE FROM MARS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
. . .* . . WESTRALIA'S MESSAGE FROM MARS BY DRYBLOWER &nbsp; It may have been the study &nbsp; Of that planet strange and ruddy, Or the fact that I'd been gazing on the snifter long and brown; &nbsp; But from off that puzzling planet Like some swift, gigantic gannet I dreamed a Martian messenger came hotly hurrying down. But on information gleaning, Through the ether intervening, He whizzed by countless comets and the nebulae of stars, Till at last he fluttered slowly To this mundane globule lowry, And announced himself in person as the Messenger from Mars. ___ &nbsp; "I am seeking information," Was his eager explanation, "We Martians want to take you as a model, if we may ; For though once you were derided, We in Mars have long decided That the hub of things terrestrial is the State of W.A. &nbsp; " Right you are," I here assented (Bigger lie I ne'er invented), "The world, like Caesar's captives, trails behind Westralia's cars; Nature made he...
HEBE AND REVOLVER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
HEBE AND REVOLVER. ____ &nbsp; &nbsp; They have a supposed hostelry at Clack- line where beer is abundant, but hospitality a stranger. The beer bureau is managed by one of Bebe's modern sisters, with a distinc- tive will and individuality of her own. About a week ago some weary and thirsty travellers entered the Clackline chateau and sought accommodation for the night, which of course the proprietress is supposed, on the instructions of the law, to provide. They were insulted for their enquiries, although at the time time were no boarders in the house. "Can we get a conveyance then?" they asked, "to take us on to New- castle." "No, you can't," was the reply, and the weary wanderers were compelled to "rough it" for the night. The independent Hebe the other day got on the "razzie" on her own. At a late hour in the evening there was a disturbance outside the bung &nbsp; bunks, and out the hostess rushed, revolver in hand, and while brandishing this dis- tinctive...
SCANDAL AT YORK. PUB, PUBLIC AND POLICE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
SCANDAL AT YORK PUB, PUBLIC AND POLICE Yorkite writes:--"Through the columns &nbsp; of your widely-read paper I would like to make a few observations anent the conduct of a certain hotel in York. The scandal has continued for several years past. Apart &nbsp; &nbsp; from disposing of any amount of adulterated spirits thereat the draught beer is very frequently tampered with. On the occasions of all festivities, Government rent days, March and September included, a barrel of beer is on tap, adulterated with some poisonous compound, to trap and confound the unsuspecting countryite who may re- quire that beverage. The trick usually suc- ceeds in depriving the victim of his senses very quickly, when he spends his money fast and furious, or is relegated to the seclusion of a back parlor, where his pockets are carefully attended to. When the sleeper wakes up he is a wiser but a poorer man. Another Pernicious Practice resorted to at this hotel is dosing a man with mi...

These goods are manu- factured by Mr. Henry Lawrence, the well known furrier, of Adelaide, and, as asnal, he guarantees every article made this season and free from moth.

CURING THE CRIMINALS. THE NEW REGULATIONS. DARK CELLS, THE IRONS, AND THE LASH. Dangers in the Drakesbrook Departure. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
CURING THE CRIMINALS. THE NEW REGULATIONS. DARK CELLS, THE IRONS, AND THE LASH. &nbsp; Dangers in the Drakesbrook Departure. Since we commenced this course of articles &nbsp; on "Curing Criminals" the Government Gazette of March 28 has published a new set of "Regulations relating to the Management and Control of the Gaols and Prisoners of &nbsp; Western Australia." These regulations are to come into force on the 14th of the pre- sent month, and they will supercede all &nbsp; &nbsp; previous regulations except where specially preserved. We have read them through carefully and are thoroughly disappointed with them. Although the influence of the Royal Commission and of the &nbsp; scientific views of Dr. Jameson are &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; observable in some of them in places, they are on the whole as unscientific and even uncivilised as the regulations they are &nbsp; intended to supercede. The people called &...
For the Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
[THE SUNDAY TIMES will be glad to re- ceive from its country readers, for publica- tion in its agricultural columns, voluntary contributions of practical interest, which will be used with or without the names o- the writers. Such communications, em- bodying the results of personal experience in &nbsp; farm life in any of its branches, great or small, with the lessons suggested by old methods or the moral taught by new experi- ments, will prove instructive and valuable. &nbsp; Any farmer who has anything of interest to say relating to his vocation will be welcome.] &nbsp;
RURAL TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
The best single grain for sheep is oats. The beginning of good farming is the good farmer. &nbsp; &nbsp; No part of sheep breeding is of more importance than the quality of the ram. &nbsp; Soften new rope by boiling about 10 minutes, then stretch while drying. It is the farmer who pays as he goes who has credit everywhere. Lifting at the wheel is all right, provided you are lifting the way things naturally &nbsp; ought to go. Brains on the farm are to-day the most valuable asset needed to success in the busi- ness. Study and plan--then work. &nbsp; &nbsp; Ground barley makes a very good food as a part of the ration for milch cows. In large quantities it is much too heating in its nature, as it is a carbonaceous food. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Have you selected ground for garden? The warmest, sunniest spot should be chosen for the early garden. It is a good plan for several neighbors to go in together and buy garden s...
SERVICEABLE RAT-TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
SERVICEABLE RAT-TRAP A reliable rat-catching apparatus, suitable &nbsp; for the wholesale destruction of the pests, such as is required on a farm, is not a very &nbsp; common thing. The great fault rat-traps of &nbsp; &nbsp; commerce is, that when caught, a rat squeals, and so acquaints its comrades of its &nbsp; predicament, and warns them against any similar indiscretion. The following device &nbsp; has the advantages of costing very little, and of being very effective. The illustration almost explains itself, but after having read &nbsp; the directions there should be no difficulty. A common earthen pot is required, with, say, 4in. of water at bottom, and fixed boards are placed across, and a board &nbsp; divided in the middle is fixed by wire &nbsp; hinges at the cross, and weighted at each end with lead. The whole surface is now level, the board spread with bait, the rat steps forward, pop goes the trap-doo...
TO PREVENT KICKING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
TO PREVENT KICKING &nbsp; &nbsp; The drawing shows a most simple and ef- fective method of preventing a cow kicking whilst being milked. After doubling up the fore-leg at the knee place thereon a plain buckle strap (a good dog collar will do), and with a smooth stick, 6in. or 7in. long, slightly tapering one end and about the size of one's finger, or a little thicker; place across the bend of the knee, under the strap, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; to prevent it falling off. Here you have the cow on three legs, and kick she cannot, let her have ever such a desire to do so. She &nbsp; &nbsp; soon gets accustomed to stand on three legs &nbsp; ______ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; as well as four, and soon forgets about the kicking habit. It is not necessary to buckle the strap every time it is used, or even buckle at all, only have the leather made of the proper size, for it is slipped o...
HOW TO KILL A HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
HOW TO KILL A HORSE &nbsp; &nbsp; Many people will say when they read the above heading that it is a very simple &nbsp; matter to kill a horse. When it comes to &nbsp; &nbsp; actual business, however, it appears to be a &nbsp; job that cannot be done readily. How often do we see a horse that has met with an acci- dent simply butchered, owing to the igno- rance of the person who undertakes to put &nbsp; it out of its misery. The sketch is the &nbsp; work of Mr. Holbrook, secretary to one of the societies in America for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which has issued a card showing how horses may be killed &nbsp; scientifically. The information is especially for policemen, who are ordinarily called on to dispose of sick or suffering animals. That the information is greatly needed, both by policemen and citizens generally, is a fact. To shoot a horse so as to kill it instantly, it is only necessary to aim so...
FOR PULLING POSTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
FOR PULLING POSTS. With the device here illustrated a man and a boy with one horse a can pull up 250 posts a day. Take a 2in. plank, b, loin, wide and 3 1/2ft. long, and cut a V-shaped notch in one end. Set this lifting plank against the post, c, as shown in the illustra- &nbsp; tion. Fasten a log chain, a, to the post near the ground and pass it over the end by al- lowing it to rest on the notch d at the top. Hitch the horse to the chain, let him pull steadily, and the post comes up without dif- ficulty. When the ground is very soft, the Operator will experience considerable incon- venience from having the plank driven deeply into the mud by the great pressure. This can be obviated by placing a short, stoat plank upon the ground in such a posi- tion that the lower end of the upright may rest upon it. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
POULTRY SCRATCHINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
The price of eggs and poultry at the pre- sent time are in favor of the owners of poultry. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Encourage the hens to lay by providing nests in sheltered corners. See that there is &nbsp; plenty of bright, dry straw in the nest. The income of a farmer can be increased by adding to the curriculum of the farm a poultry yard. There are several breeds more profitable than others, but best results have resulted from crossbred birds. In selecting geese for next year's breeding, remember that the same pair mate season after season. Separation often means unfer- &nbsp; tile eggs and disappointment at hatching time. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Someone has figured out that a common- sized dog will eat the same food that would keep 60 healthy laying hens. Considering the benefits that may be derived from the hens, it will be a good d...
HINTS FOR THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
No one can make good butter with bad odors in and around the creamery. Sunshine, good air, cleanliness, and com- fort are as important with the herd as feed. Be very careful of the fresh cows and do &nbsp; not let the cold wind blow on them. Avoid all nervous excitement or there will be a loss in the milk pail. It is a great mistake to keep the young animals tied up. They must have exercise or they will become crooked and deformed. Dairying can no longer go on a line of &nbsp; accident or luck. It must be on the line of &nbsp; progression. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Don't attempt to make gilt-edge butter &nbsp; in the midst of all the cooking odors in the kitchen. You cannot make butter sweet after it has become tainted. &nbsp; &nbsp; Do not allow a cow to grow thin during &nbsp; the winter, for she will not produce the same milk in the spring as if she were kept in good condition...
THE PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
In order to test the truth of the statement &nbsp; that pure-bred swine were not as prolific as cross-breeds, or those not of pure breeds, an American professor took the trouble to search the registers of the Berkshire, Poland China. and Chester White, to see the number of pigs credited to the sows there. They were taken equally from the first and last litters recorded for each sow, and show the number ef pigs farrowed and missed. In 400 litters of Berkshires there was an average of over seven pigs to the litter, or 2,886 pigs, of which 1,498 were boars and 1,368 sows. From 1,000 Poland China sows there were 6,542 pigs raised, or over six and a half to a litter as an average; 3,228 were boars and 3,314 sows. In 600 litters of Cbester White there were 4,550 pigs, an average of over &nbsp; seven and a half to a litter; there were 2,236 boars and 2,319 sows. This is cer- tainly not a bad showing, if it includes the first and last litters, as the first is usually less in...
A DISPUTED MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
A DISPUTED MARRIAGE. An extraordinary development took place in an action for debt which came before the Ballarat (Victoria) Town Court recently." A young woman &nbsp; named Emma Draper sued James Khan, a fruiterer, for £11, arrears of pay, which she alleged was owing to her for looking after defendant's shop. Khan, unknown to his counsel (Mr. Clarke) had taken out a cross summons for £2 9s. 6d. money lent, and some embarrassment was caused when this was made known, as Mr. Clarke had been instructed that the couple were man and wife. Khan, who is an Indian, swore that he was legally married to Mrs. Draper, then a widow, at Bendigo, some four years ago. Mr. Clarke : Are you sure you are not making a mistake ? Is She Really Your Wife? Khan : "Sure ! Yes, bess, I'm sure." Then the complainant gave her statement, in which she denied that she was married to defendant. She declared that for the past 10 years she had not been in Bendigo, and that at the time that Khan alleged he ma...
NORTHAM TO SOUTHERN CROSS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
NORTHAM TO SOUTHERN CROSS BY OUR TRAVELLING CORRESPONDENT During my stay at Northam I dis- covered that there was a certain amount of friction between the station- &nbsp; master and those under his authority. It appears from what I could gather that he has yet to learn the meaning of the word courtesy, and the sooner he makes amends the better for all concerned. On Wednesday week the train from Northam to Kalgoorlie was &nbsp; 40 minutes late in starting, when, in- stead of being calm and collected, I myself heard the stationmaster say, "I'll make it hot for some of the -----" A man in charge of a railway station Should Not Get Excited &nbsp; On the train referred to a few stations ahead there were 36 coops of poultry placed one above another, a number of cases of fruit, several bags of meat, bread and groceries--all in the brake van. Before reaching Hines Hill the stench arising from the van was abomi- nable, and this increased before the &nbsp; cons...
KALGOORLIE KETCHUP [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
KALGOORLIE KETCHUP Cr. John Marshall, a rugged-looking, &nbsp; &nbsp; cheery-hearted Caledonian who, in addition &nbsp; to flinging himself strenuously into all public matters, enjoys the distinction of being the premier of the local mock parliament, is en- &nbsp; gaged in formulating a scheme for the amalgamation of Kalgoorlie and Boulder &nbsp; into one model and massive municipality. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; All night he dreams of his contemplated &nbsp; &nbsp; magnum opus, and a good deal of the day he &nbsp; spends in button-holing unwary citizens and &nbsp; haranguing them upon the prospective ad- &nbsp; vantages that his plan presents. These, it &nbsp; &nbsp; may be readily conceded, are plentiful and patent enough, but the fatal objection to the &nbsp; project is that when two men bestride the same horse one has to perforce sit behind. That Kalgoorlie s...
NORTHERN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
BY THE WIZARD "Veni, vidi, vici." However applicable &nbsp; &nbsp; this hackneyed old gag might have been to Julius Caesar it would be a ludicrous lie in the mouth of Agricultural Bank Patterson in reference to his late visit to the highly- aggrieved farmers of the Victoria District, of whom he had spoken so disdainfully be- for the select committee. He came, it's true, but he didn't see, and he by no means &nbsp; conquered. All through, his reception was a frost of the severest type; and his diet &nbsp; cold shoulder without variation. That is, when he lost touch with the woolgrowers &nbsp; &nbsp; and anti-selectors and got among the wheat &nbsp; and spud raisers. At Northampton he must have felt decidedly uncomfortable, always provided that a Caledonian stern and wild &nbsp; has got an ordinary skin and not a boiler plate for a cuticle; for the boys of Nanson- ville, though phlegmatic to a degree, long suffering and s...
THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. "A MESSAGE FROM MARS." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
"A Message from Mars" can with some reason lay claim to its advertised title-- "The Play of the Century." It has cert- &nbsp; tainly proved a wonderful draw in Perth, &nbsp; and the successful commencement of the second week's running on Saturday night &nbsp; gives promise of continued popularity. It may be anticipated that a record run will be established locally. The play itself is some- thing so entirely new that this feature alone would be sure to attract favorable &nbsp; notice, but in addition to this it is so bright, &nbsp; so touching, and so improving that every- body is pleased. As regards the mounting of the play, it cannot be praised too highly, &nbsp; and the attention which is given to every little detail cannot fail to impress the most critical audience. Everything seems so sub- stantial. When the front door of Mrs. Clarence's house shuts with a bang it does not shake everything on the stage, as is &nbsp; usually...
CREMORNE. TAYLOR-CARRINGTON COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 April 1902
CREMORNE TAYLOR-CARRINGTON COMPANY With the last performance of the Jones and Lawrence Variety Company, the popular open-air home of amusement closes, and the above well-known dramatic combination takes possession for a four weeks' season in the theatre. The opening piece, "Disowned," will be staged for three nights, to be followed by "Home Rule" for a similar period. In the former production a sensational explosion scene is prominent, and of which the Press of towns already &nbsp; visited speak in the highest praise. Alto- gether 22 artists will appear during the season, the majority of whom are thoroughly capable and painstaking performers. A scenic artist has been specially brought over &nbsp; from Melbourne, and the incidental music &nbsp; will be in the hands of the already well- &nbsp; known and efficient permanent orchestra of this place of amusement. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
