The Plague of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

The Plague of Life. Some time ago the ladies of Melbourne made a futile attempt to replenish the domestic servant market of that city. The scheme was to iuduce domestic servants to come out from the old country; but the prime movers quarrelled amongst them selvas, and the scheme came to an untime- ly end. Since then the ladies of Brisbane, as much put to straits for domestic helps as their Melbourne sisters, entered upon a work whose object was the same with a difference. The difference lay in this whereas the Melbourne ladies wanted to increase the number of servants, the Brisbane ladies went in for the improve- ment of those they had and those they might have. It is no secret that many of the girls who come out to the colonies know nothing of domestic service, and the scheme which found favour with the ladies of Brisbane was the establishment of an institution where girls on landing could be received, and, if found incompetent, might be instructed in their duties. It may be rememb...

Cocoaine. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Cocoaine. Among all the accounts of the beneficial uses of cocoaine which have appeared lately in the medical papers, we do not remember to have seen any pointing to the dangers of its employment as a common self-adminis- tered narcotic. A painful Btory of this danger eomes from Washington, where a well-known and esteemed physician, Dr. C. D. Bradley, is said to have ruined his con- stitution almost beyond recovery by experi- menting upon himself with cocoaine to dis- cover its various properties. A visitor to the hospital found him lying in his cot partially dreßsed, and xnoauing piteously for his favourite drug. Before a dose of moderately weak solution of hydrochlorate of cocoaine was administered hypodermically, Dr. Bradley was in a condition of collapse and misery worse than either alcohol or opium prodnces. A minute or two after- wards he was restored to the highest spirits, and began to dilate to his visitors on all the great things that his discovery is to do for the world. ...

Temperance Votes. In an admirable article on Mr. Eeid's speeoh on Local Option, the Christian Mes- senger says of compensation, " The question of compensation is undoubtedly a difficult, one ; it, however, really leaves the main question nntoaohed.- the non-renewal of the public house licenses will effect very serious- ly the business of others, viz. :-Pawn- brok- ers, money-lenders, doctors, lawyers, polioe men, jailors, and hangmen.

THE CONDITION OF THE GASCOYNE ABORIGINALS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

THE CONDITION OF THE GAS COYNE ABORIGINALS. To the Editor. Sis,-An article appeared in',the Stand- ard of December 24th which certainly "shows a want of knowledge, of the Gas- coyne blacks, and a mistaken standard for judging of their present condition." The writer of this article says in the course of his remarks " and yet we-believe it is quite true that on the whole the native is m a worse condition to-day than when he first came in contact with the white man." I would like to ask the writer ef this what grounds he has for believing this. I can easily show him that the condition of the natives here is greatly improved since the advent of the whites among them. Be- tween eight and nine years ago I came to this district. At that time few of the natives had ever soeu a white man, and they were a« wilda lot of savages as could be found in any part of the world, and " as Mr Gribble has it," all in nature's garb, picking up a precarious living the best way they could, and when food ran...

MR. GRIBBLE'S MISSION. (From the Victorian Express.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

MR. CRIBBLE'S MISSION. -«V ' (From the Victorian Express.) Carnarvon is not now the quiet depot of an immense district that but a few short months ago it WkB. It has been robbed of its quietude, aud has become a place of agi- tation and excitement. To tell the truth we were quite content with our former lot ; perfectly satisfied to move on to the goal that lay before us, even with the little grievances of our own whioh occur in every district such aß ours. But the entry of the Bev. J. B. Gribble-who has been peculiarly, and the Bishop says divinely, called to this colony, and (unfortunately, the settlers think) to this district, to prosecute missionary work among what are erroneously Etyle "the down-trodden Aborigines "-has robbed us of all our wonted peaceful garb, and we are now clothed in robes of exoitement and dis- gust. I purpose in this letter to place the matter before your readers in a calm, un- prejudiced manner, defending and maintain- ing the right, exposing the wrong, a...

Mr. W. D. Moore's Vineyard. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Mr. W. D. Moore's Vineyard. [By Bucolic]     Last week, a party of gentlemen, consist- ing of Mr. Ewart, Chairman of the Wadding-   ton Syndicate, Mr. Price Williams, Mr. J. Price Williams, Mr, E. T. Hooley, and Bucolic, paid a visit to the garden and vine- yard of Mr. W. D. Moore, situate about two miles from Fremantle on the old Perth road. The party was met at the Fremantle railway station by Mr. Moore with his carriage and the smartest pair of ponies (greys) in Fre- mantle. Fifteen minutes drive along a well formed road, following the south bank of the Swan brought the visitors to their destina- tion, and here they saw what energy well applied, coupled with the judicious expendi- ture of capital, will effect. Mr. Moore owns 138 acres of land having a lengthy frontage to the main road. The country is composed of loose sandy loam and grey sand on a lime- stone formation, timbered with peppermint and banksia, and covered with the low scrub pec...

Our Novel. A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. "A stern chase is a long chase " THE SECOND PART. CHAPTER I. MAIL DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Our Novel.   A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY.   " A stern chase is a long chase " THE SECOND PART. CHAPTER I. MAIL DAY. The announcement that Dr. Rosslyn wanted to speak to her was one which Lilias Merivale had not been able to hear with entire composure at any time since she had been of sufficient im-   portance for him to speak to her in any special way. Only rarely since the business attendant upon her arrival at years of discretion had been completed had her stepfather summoned her to a private interview; but on those few occasions she experienced a sensation for which she blamed herself severely,   and she had always looked in the glass   before she obeyed his summons, to see whether her tell-tale face was likely to betray her. All this apprehension and reluctance was purely disinteres- ted. On her own account, and in con- nection with her own conduct, Lilias had nothing to fear or to de...

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

CHAPTER II.   EPISODICAL.   Dr. Rosslyn, while aware of the disappointment that the non-arrival of a letter from Hugh inflicted upon Lilias, was also surprised at her in-   ability to conceal her distress. Her usual self-restraint had failed on this occasion in a way which was not at all displeasing to her step-father. Mrs. Norton having remarked, in the subdued tone which she always used at breakfast time, that Lilias was eating nothing, Dr. Rosslyn glanced over the edge of his Times, and ob- served that the girls cheeks were pale, and that tears were stealing down them. He also caught the quick, appealing look, and slight shake of the head, by which she warned Mrs. Norton that her remark was inoppor-   tune. Although he gave no indica- tion of having heard or seen anything, he was secretly well pleased. Lilias was so essentially a " good girl "—so obedient, so unaccustomed to indulge or to consider herself—that she was just a lit...

POLICE PROTECTION FOR THE SETTLERS. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

POLICE PROTECTION FOR THE SETTLERS. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN The Victorian Express of the 13th inst reports a serious affray with natives at Messrs. Wittenoom and Carlyon's new cattle station, which, we under- stand, lies beyond Mt. Labouchere on the head waters of the Gascoyne and Lyons. Mr. Carlyon, with three companions, had gone up to inspect the station. Two of the latter he left behind to follow him, owing to heaviness of the road, and pushed on with the third to his destination. After remaining there for a day or two the natives showed signs of hostility, advancing towards the whites with shipped spears. The latter fired in self de- fence; one of the blacks, apparently, was slightly wounded, and all of them ran away. Next day, however, they approached the camp in greater num- bers, and Carlyon and his companion considering discretion, in the circum- stances, the better part of valour, re- treated, pursued by the threatening savages. It became necessary for the whites to prepa...

CHURCH OF ENGLAND MISSIONS COMMITTEE AND MR. GRIBBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

CHURCH OF ENGLAND MISSIONS COMMITTED AND MR. GRIBBLE. We hear that a meeting of the Church of England Missions Committee took place on Friday afternoon at which, amongst other matters, Mr. Gribble's statements respecting the treatment he received on board the Natal at Champion Bay were considered. The view which the Com- mittee took may be inferred from the fact that they did not, we understand, deem it advisable to furnish the Rev. gentleman with funds for prosecuting his alleged assailants. We somewhat regret this ; for, were the facts made known, as they actually occurred, it would be found-so we infer from the information we have been at pains to collect-that, although blame certainly attaches to certain per- sons whose high spirits, indiscretion, and contemptuous feelings led them on the spur of the moment to indulge in rather rough pranks, the serious charges laid by Mr. Gribble in his excitement could not in any. way be substantiated.

A New Egg-Preserving Process. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

i A New Egg-Preserving Process. After many experiments I think I have j I bit upon the right way to preserve eggs. It is inexpensive. 1 got wy idea by seeing sea captains burn charcoal and sulphur to disinfect ships, kill rats, &c, with carbonic acid and other gases,-set free by combus- tion. Free carbon and sulphur fumes are death to living things, septic germs not excepted. Graphite and lampblack are carbon, and I chose lampblack for my ex- periment. Sulphur with lampblack suffi- cient, to hide it were mixed together. I took a churn 20in. square, having a circular hole in one side, and on February 1, 1883, placed in it two dozen fresh laid hen's eggs aud two goose's eggs, filled a saucer about two thirds full of the sulphur and lamp- black compound and placed it on the eggs ; set it on fire with a match (it burns slowly and without endangering anything) ; put on the churn cover, pasting a paper over it to keep in all the smoke, and left it over night. On opening the churn ...

The Introduction of the Potato into Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

The Introduction of the Potato into Germany« A correspondent ia an American paper writes :-.* While travelling in the Upper Rhine countries, we found ourselves obliged to pass the night and part of the day in the little village of Offenburg, on the borders of the Black Forest. While looking about in search of the marvellous that is always to be found in some form ia these border vil vages, we eauie upon u high monument, upon the pedestal of which was the figure of a man in the dress of the Elizabethan cour- tiers. Our wonder increased as we saw loosely piled upon the broad, projecting base quantities of potatoes carved in stone. It was a monument to Sir Francis Drake and the esculent tuber! The cavalier and discoverer holds extended in one hand a potato plant, and upon the four sides of the pedestal are inscriptions expressing the gratitude of a great people for the blessing that the Creator bad been pleased to bestow upon them in time of famine."

Trial of a Cream Separator at Warragul. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

Trial of a Cream Separator at Warragul. A very interesting exhibition of the De Laval cream separator was held on January 6, at the farm of Mr. W. A. Harvie, Ellin- bank, Warragul, Vic. A number of farmers and dairymen came to see the machine tested. They were first shown some skim milk which had been separated the day before, and there was pot the slightest sign of cream to be found on any of it. Several farmers remarked that they could never ' take the cream off so clean by the setting process, no matter how favourable the 1 weather might be. The cream was then. examined, and it was excellent, the visitors j ' being astonished to sea such a quantity ' ; from one day's milking. The butter made ' from separator cream was samplpd, and it ' was firm, of good colour, and nice flavour. 1 Mr. Walker, the agent for the separator, then showed a coloured drawing of the machine, which explained in a very simple , 1 manner how the Cream was taken from the 1 milk.

About noon on Wednes- day, however, rumours began to fly about Perth that it had become involved in such serious difficulties in the other coló- me« that the head office had been com- pelled to issue orders to all its branches to close their doors. It appears that the Penh brauch opened at the usual hour on Wednesday morning, and commenced business for the day.
