According to His Folly. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

According to His Folly. The following amusing anecdote of Richard Wagner and Alexandre Dumas pere is told by M. Ch. Monselet. Richard Wagner gene- rally received his visitors in medissval cos- tumes, such as he always wore when com- posing. Alexandre Dumas, calling on him one day, was highly amuEsd at the masque- rade. "You are all dressed up to play Gessler," 6oid Dumas, with his good natured laugh, which rather hurt the feelings of the author of " Tannhauser," who nevertheless returned M. Dumas'g visit when next he waa at Paris. After some considerable delay, M. Dumas appeared at last dressed magnifi- cently in a dressing-gown with a large flower pattern, a helmet with flying plumes, a life- belt round his waist, and enormous riding boots, " Pardon me," said he majestically, " for appearing in my working costume. I can do nothing without being dressed in this manner ; half of my ideas live in this helmet and the other half are lodged in my boots, which are indispensable to me when...

THE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. AUTUMN SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

OT£ HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY . OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. -*. ' « AUTUMN SHOW. Considering the state of the season which has been the reverse of favourable for our -horticulturists, it is scarcely to be wondered -at that yesterday's show exhibited unmis takeable signs of the adverse circumstances -against which they have had to contend. A very severe winter was succeeded by a lengthy spell of dry weather, almost entirely , unbroken by those rains which in the latter part of the year are so desirable both for the farmer and the gardener. And this, together with the many weeks of intense heat to which we have been subjected, caused most ipeople to regard the chances of a good flower show as but very slight. These anticipations were certainly verified, yester- day's show being, upon the whole, one of the poorest the Society has held. The entneB were not numerous, there being only 129 'distributed amongst 83 sections. In class A, "Flowers in Pots," the -best show was made by the coleus and the ...

One of our neighbours did nut, so rumour says, consider it hot enough and set fire to some bush fencing for which I hear he's to be charged tomorrow. By the by this also reminds me that some eight or nine persons are, I believe to appear before the B.M. for allowing cattle and horses to stray about the town, day and night. I hope this will bo put a stop to, and some of the piggeries also removed which are a great nuisance in this town. What are the Town Council , *---^-r*-*^-r; about-no pound-keeper, ao inspector ofî nuisances, etc, they are certainly very, much to blame for neglect ia these mat- ters, and I am informed that if the Town Council will not attend to them the R.M. will have it done for them, as the Police...

THE NATIVE TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

THE NATIVE TROUBLi. ? Under date February 9, Mr. Lionel ft. Davis writes to the Victorian Empress as. follows:-" During the last twelvemonths the natives have been systematically kill- ing onr sheep ia the Gascoyne District^ and though I took out warrants tor fif- teen of them, more than eight months ago, as yet none have been arrested, with the exception of five, which were caught by our trackers and handed over to* the police. Since the warrants were taken, ont the police have been at our station no less than four times, and when asked to arrest the offenders they say that they were on other Government business, anti, could not wait, The first time was when they came for a native of ours as a witness ia the notorious Campbell and Sharpe / persecution. 1 then told the police that most of the ringleaders were within twenty miles of our head station, and eouid easily be taken in a couple of days. But they said their orders were stringent to take Tommy, and not delay for any other wor...

Odds and Ends. A Cigar Duty. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

.Jiife .o£.M|.. Â Cigar Bitty. An amusing comedy is being enacted in Naples, and probably in many other parts of Italy. A few days ago came into operation a new law by which the price of cigars is . affeoted. Those who had any on etoek dosed their shops on the evening before the event- ful day, hoping to make no slight profit by what they had on hand. To their dismay, however, on the fatal morning the officials of the Government, on the door being re-opened presented themselves and took a re-acoount of the stock. The public are much irritated, and refuse to purchase cigars. In Rome, it is said, an association has been formed called " the Pipe Club, every member of which re- fuses to smoke cigare. In Naples, some evenings ago, a number of young men paraded the streets with long pipes, so that "there is a regular revolution in the habits of a people who seem to have been bom with < cigars in their mouths.

A Psychological Puzzle. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

A Psychological Puzzle. There seems to be au incurable pro- pensity in human nature to perpetrate offences against decency. There is a remnant of the lower instinct in some men which causes them to be guilty of transgressions against the canons of pro- priety, which are all alike purposeless, brutal, and silly. Amongst this class of offences is the practice of scribbling words of evil meaning upon fences and benches, and upon walls in public places, wherever a good ground can be obtained for doing so, out of sight of a policeman or an official. What is the innate pro- pensity which induces both young and old to sully conspicuous places with written impurity it is difficult to imagine. It is, indeed, a psychological puzzle. The same motive that leads to disgraceful blas- phemy and licentiousness of tongue prob- ably actuates the seamy-minded folks who scribble indecencies in public places. We know it is a passion with travellers to carve their names on trees, rocks, monu- ments, or p...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

CHAPTEE II. Five weeks Gerard Drummond had been at Misterton. From the bottom of his heart he wished himself away, yet, like a moth about a caudle, be had not strength of will to go, though he had made more than one honest effort to depart. But "Oh, you mustn't talk of leaving till Dick comes back," insisted Mr. Gascoyne, heartily. "He'll want to see you. 1 shan't let you free till he gets home. He can't be long now. What on earth he's loafing about Naples for ia more than I can imagine, instead of going on to Tur- key with the rest. But he'll tell us when he's here, and till then Mr. Drummond, you don't stir, or you'll get into our black books." So Gerard stayed on, though every day punished his weakness more heavily. For his mischievous thought was bearing its natural fruit. To be under the same rbof, at the same table, in the same air, with Margaret Gascoyne was growing a pain and delight unspeakable. He knew it was an infatuation, a passion, that must live in his life as a memor...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN EXHIBITION. ?--sr While the eyes of all Colonial and Indo-Englishmen are being turned to- wards the great Exhibition to be opened shortly in London, it is, perhaps, our duty to recall the attention of West Australians to what is being done in the same way in their midst. To them, at least, the glories of the Colonial and Indian Exhibition should not be allowed entirely to ecb'pso the Exhibition which is shortly to bo held I in Perth, Though this is a very much [ binalier affair, yet to the colony it is of | great importance. There is no means by | which the effects of Industrial Exhibitions can be gauged, but it is universally allowed that they are of immense value to the communities amongst which they are promoted. It is to be hoped, there I fore, that the exhibitors who will occupy i the space in the Town Hall during exhibition time will do their best in I placing what products and manufactures I the colony may possess before the public. Exhibitions are educati...

Farm and Station. A Manufacturer's Views on the "Get-up" of Wool. [From the Melbourne Argus.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

?wai ma ifefÄ pA Manufacturer's Views on the "Get-up" Í of Wool. [From the Melbourne Argus.] ^ The extremely low prices that have for /..«me time past been ruling for wool have \ produced consternation in wool circles, not : only iu Australia but also in the manufactur t ving centres of Europe. Whatever the ex- planation of the fall may be, it is manifestly the interest of ali in the trade to assist in minimizing its effects by pointing out to the "producers the ways in which the value of their produce may be increased. The vari- ous articles published on this subject in the Argus give evidence that iu Australia, at all '«vents, the growers have been kept well -pOBted up in the course of the European ? markets. And it is to be trusted that at "the same time they have determined to meet the competition of the other wool growing countries by endeavouring to im- prove the produce of their own. To give a few hints in this direction from ? a manufacturer's point of view is the object otU...

STRAY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

STRAY NOTES. The French papers have been full of a case» which junior members ot the criminal bar would do well to take a note of. A woman was put on her trial for strangling her baby, aud at the preliminary examination Bhe con- fessed her crime. At the trial medical evi- dence was beard, and the doctor told the judge he did not believe the woman was the culprit. The finger marks were fresh on the victim's throat when he made his examina- tion, and the marks were singular. He ex- amined the woman's hands and found her fingers long, slender, and well-shaped, but the marks were of a short-fingured hand, stumpy and misshapen, and one of the fin- gers-the first-was abnormally short. On this the prisoner burst into tears, said she was fond of the child, had not destroyed it and mentioned m her excitement the real culprit. He was a man of a better class of life with whom she had lived as domestic servant. His arrest followed, and the doctor pointed out that the prisoner's hands were forme...

THE RABBIT PEST. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

THE RABBIT PEST. | - i {.FROM THE WBST AUSTRALIAN,] j "We stated yesterday that information bad reached us of an alleged colony of wild rabbits having located themselves in the sandhills between the Green- ough Flats, and the source from which this information was obtained is such that we fear there can be little doubt of its truth. " If a few rabbits come to get about, in a wild state amongst the sandhills in the Victoria District," said Mr. Crowther in 1883, *' no Government in the world could eradicate them, and the result would be, instead of the Government driving them out, the r.tbbits would drive out the people." And, now, two years later, we are told that the very con- tingency which Mr. Crowther con- templated with such dread has been brought about and that the rabbits have already begun to take possession. How this has como to pass is a puzzle ; how, that is to say, it ha6 come to pass unnoticed, as, for the credit of the district or of the Inspector, whoever he may be, we...
