COUNCIL OF PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 12 April 1902
COUNCIL OF PEOGBB38. It is with considerable satisfaction we learn that tlie remarks published in these columns s^me tune back have resulted in the formation of an or ganisation to watch over and further the interests of the town of Katan niug. That such an important and growing centre should be deprived of the benefits of concerted action in matters of publie concern was not to be long tolerated. We sincerely bone that the period^^— TegattlB^Tne—general interests of the community has been succeeded by one of sustained activity, during which a Pennine forward movement will take place. Commendable private enter prise and faith in the future of the town has called the attention of even those wedded to the policy of centra lization to the fine asset of the State in its agricultural areas. It remains for the public spirit of the residents of Katanuing to secure the utmost advantage from the Government, which owes no small debt to their faith and enterprise. We are fully aware of the ser...
DEEP PLOUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 12 April 1902
DEEP ploughing: Now that the ploughing season is abbot round again, formers would do well to con aider which is the most profitable way to work their land—whether it is better to get 200 acres of erop in with the chance of get ting an eight or nine hnshel crop, or to put 100 acres in with the probability of getting a 15 to 18 bushel crop. If a man wSnld rather have the former, with ill its attendant extra expense in reaping and binding or stripping, well and good j hut a sensible man would ranch prefer the latter, and wonld be in pockeft coaadsiaidj even if he didpot get double the crop he wonld hare obtained by the former method. To commentfe 'with, if he only put in 100 acres he would ease xigh^ away ebont lOO bushels of seed.

FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 12 April 1902
FARM NOTES. San Jose scale is still ravaging the orchards I in some parts of America. In the neighbor hood of Worcester. Massachusetts, a large supply of .whale-oil soap has been placed in the Agvlc ultural Hall for the use of the public, and the. Hon icnlUiral Society has given a thousand dollars to .be .used for., the. purpose of checking the ravages oj ihe pest. The codiin moth is spreading ^pidly in English orchards, and a correspondent of the " Gardeners' Chronicle" states that the: increase of this peBt. threatens the very ex-; ! istence of successful commercial apple-grow ing. He says this rapid spread of the moth i is due to the wholesale importation of grub infested fruit from the United States and Canada. Visitors to the Manchester-Smith field market during the past three months revealed a shocking state of affairs, and it is i stated that the same applies to all markets throughout England, every barrel of Ameri can and Canadian apples received during October and .November...
SPORTING Cricket. By STUMPS. KATANNING v. WOODANILLING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 12 April 1902
SPORTING Cricket. By STUMPS. K\TANNING v. WO0DANILLTNG. [ On Saturday last the Woodauilling C.C. . met Katanning on'the latter's ground incom I petition 5for the premiership. Katanning • scoreed 90 \of which Hughes .made 62), against Woodanilling's 58. J his win by the former brings them equal with Woodanilling in the competition, and between them the i remiership now rests. But whether the final will be played is very problematical, owing to a number of Katanning players expressing their disinclination to again play against Woodanilling. This state of affairs, they allege, has been brought about through the unsportsmanlike and quarrelsome conduct of some of the Woodanilling players. There is not the slightest doubt that one or two members of the club mentioned exhibit very j little sportsmanlike spirit, but it is a pity J that the whole team should be made suffer for their conduct. At the Association meet ing which is to be held this evening to deal with the matter, it is to be hop...

WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 19 April 1902
WISE AND OTHERWISE. Tbc soli* ude of the bush could not be better demonstrated than recording the fact of a fanner and liis family in the Boyerine district losing eountof the days.of la.-t we el;. On Sunday the work the farm' and house hold went on apaee as usual as on onlinary week days, and on. the Monday the day was devoted to rest and Sabbath keeping. Towards evening a hawker visited the farm, and it took him some lime to convince the farmer that he was celebrating the wrong day of the week. A resident of Wagin, who, by the way, is no relation to Ananias, tells t>,e yarn that in the early days of Western Australia the railways curved to such an extent that it was no uncommon practice to see the guard of a train, after taking a " puli " at a beer bottle, reaching out of the brake van and handing the bottle to the driver as they were going 'around the curves. A story is told of Mrs Do Wet, which will bear retelling. An English officer was point ing out to the Boer general's wif...
SPORTING. Cricket. BACHELORS v. BENEDICTS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 19 April 1902
SPORTING Cricket. BACHELORS v. BENEDICTS. On Saturday, the 12th inst, a match was played on the recreation ground, between the married and single men of Katanning, which caused a good deal of excitement and amuse ment; as some of the movements of the Benedicts showed that, although they might have been smart once upon a time, the adipose tissue had accumulated to such an extent that their movements were greatly hampered. Starr was elected captain of the Bachelors, while Hughes filled the position for the Bene dicts. The skipper of the former having won the toss, decided to bat, and with Folland, opened their innings to • the bowling of Langley and 1). Wilson. The troubles of j the married men commenced immediately, j as Starr especially showed that he was out j for runs, whilst the older men were wracking j their brains to discover devices to stop tlie l ball from reaching the boundary. One J amateur gentleman (who had been pr&lt; as kI I info the game) tried his leg as an i...

Now, Sir, 1 think you should see that any ; comments made was near the truth before publishing them, as it is likely to cause a lot of ill-feeling. As stumps has given his side 1 request space for our side of the question. 5 deny that there was anything like larnkin ism at the match. If there was, why did not the Katanning Club bring it before the Asso- J ciation ? As this was not done it speaks for ! itself. And if, Sir, oar players did show any . ill-feeling during the season, they hare bad cause to, though I deny that they erer did. ! In the first round of matches they bad two games taken from them on two paltry pro- , tests—the first on the grounds that one of j their men played without liaring his name on j the Association books for our club, although ! be was on our committee and living in our J midst; the next one was f...

WAGIN. April 15. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 19 April 1902
WAGIN. (FEOJI OTTB CORRESPONDENT.) April 15. It is intended to shortly hold a public meeting here with the object, if possible, of inducing the Government to make a trial surrey of the country between Collie and | Wagin, in connection with the proposed rail way from the former place to the Great ] Southern line. It is contended here that the ! route to Wagin would considerably minimise j the engineering difficulties in the event ofl the line being constructed, and materially -j lessen the distance in the event of the line continuing eastward to connect with the goldfieids line. The support of Katan ning, Broome Hill, and other towns along the line to Albany will be sought, and in all probability a petition to that end will shortly be iu circulation. It is not the desire that the survey be necessarily made through Wagin, but the contention is that anywhere between Wagin and Broome Hill would be preferable and more economical than the route now being surveyed in the direction of Cubal...

A dastardly attempt to wreck the 3.30 p.m. mail train, ex Perth to Albany, was made on Tuesday night last, at a spot immediately opposite the trolly-shed, at Woodauilling sid ing. Fortunately, the ganger, a man named Stevens, stationed at the siding, discovered the plot an hour prior to that at which the train would pass the spot. It was discovered that an iron rail had been, laid across the line at. the place mentioned, the intent of the perpetrators being undoubtedly to wreck the mail train from Perth.
