EXPERT EXPERTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
EXPERT EXPERTS (Br "TRAVELLER.") I have often wondered why it is that our imported, highly-edu- cated, experienced, well-paid ex- perts so often disagree. It is certainly very awkward and em barassing to the average layman seeking information on knotty questions to find such radical dif- ferences in the opinions and state- ments of those who are supposed to know all that observation and science have thus far demonstrated regarding the special "ologies" which the experts are supposed to be thoroughly acquainted with. We lose confidence in experts generally when one of them makes a statement-as a fact-and he is directly contradicted by another Government expert or by'scientists in other parts who are recognised as authorities on the subject. * # # To give an idea as to what I am driving at, the director of our Zoo- logical Garden shortly after his arrival in W.A., either in a letter to one of the dailies or in an inter- view with a press reporter regard- ing the introduction of benefi...
WORLD OF WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 12 June 1898
WORLD OF WHEELS. (BY "THE WANDERER,") The race between the two over landers daily becomes more inter- esting. At the time of writing White is about crossing the Vic- torian border a few miles ahead of Denning. The straggle is- be- coming severe and exciting. It is to be regretted, however, that the fortunes of both men will depend a great deal upon the pacing pro- vided by the respective firms en route. Twenty-four hours is a great deal to gain from a man like Denning, and many are of opinion that White is not capable of it. * * * I am not egotistical, but some- how I have a happy knack of fore- telling disasters. When I said that the W.A.C.C. meeting wonld be a failure another poor devil got into hot water over it, though my prediction was true. A fort- night ago I gave a description of the combined run as it would be carried out, " under the control of the League," and my anticipations were borne out to the letter. This combined run was an amusing affair. Of the thousands of wheel...

A PERTH TIMBER TARD ON FIRE. A SERIOUS CATASTROPHE AVERTED. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
A PERTH TIMBER TARD ON FIRE. A SERIOUS CATASTROPHE AVERTED. Shortly after 12 o'clock yesterday (Saturday) a fire was discovered in the engine house of Coombe. Woods and Co's, extensive sawmills in East Perth. The alarm was promptly given and as promptly responded to, the fire brigade being on the spot in record time. Their efiorts in checking the fire were successful, as its destructive powen were soon limited to the small area in which it had originated, so that little damage was done. By this alacrity of movement on the part of the brigade a very serious disaster was narrowly averted, as all around the mills some acres of land are covered by large stacks of sawn and dry timber, while there are also several other timber yards in the vicinity to which the fire would have been easily communicated. The very existence of these immense stacks of timber almost in the heart of the city, constitute a grave public dan- ger, which is rendered the worse by the total absence of any fire appara...

ACTA DIURNA. Affairs in China drag on still, The Bear still goes on bragging, The Chinese Dragon's made his will, And the Lion's tail is wagging. * ? » " An electrical spanking apparatus is in use in the Industrial School for Girls at Denver." Lo, Science takes another stride ! She waves her fairy wand We do by electricity What once was done-by hand. * * * WHAT rr is COMING TO. Dolly : " I got such a whipping yes- terday." C issie (with an air of conscious su- periority) : " But my mamma's got au Electrical Spanking Machine." . * # Lucifer, cast from Heaven's view, Became the Prince of Evil ; Now the Celestial Empire, too, Is going to the D-1. * * * It is becoming common, it seems, for photographers to place albums on the tables of their waiting-rooms, in which their sitters can, if it so pleases them, record their sentiments. But there is no reason why the fashion should be confined to photographers. Dentists might compile quite an interesting volume. I * * « "Aristides," a daily p...

YACHTIMG NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
YACHTIMG NOTES. (Br * PLYING JIB.") In view of the present agitation about a dingy class, 10ft. w.l., the following clipping from the London Field will be of interest:-Evidently British and American yachtsmen believe in the one design class for the small fry at least, notwithstanding that a writer in the daily press states that it is "repug- nant" to his ideas. Personally I nave witnessed some splendid races in the one design class, and think that they are particularly adapted for this bay. However, as the matter will be discussed fully nert Wednesday evening, I will endeavour to be present, and will take down some of the eloquence. * # # The one model 0.75-raters at South- port have increased in popularity steadily ever since the class was first started, and this season is to be a very busy one. The fleet has been strength- ened, by the addition of a new boat owned by the vice-president of the club, Sir Herbert Naylor-Leyland, and the season opens at Hoylake on April 30, when the p...
POOR OLD JOBB! [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 19 June 1898
POOR OLD JOBB ! ?(Joseph Jobb, charged with being an idle and disorderly person, having no visible means of support, when asked how he pleaded, replied, "I can't work. I'm 72 and done."-Police Court report.) How jaded and old and how tattered This toil-stained, f orelorn derelict ; A felon, whose crime was poverty, By fate and sad destiny tricked. With quavering, feeble voice, he wheezed, " Ter 'onner, my race is nigh run, An' I've got no friends to care for me now, Fm 72 and done." Then the tears came into the rheumy eyes, And the palsied fingers shook; ?** I've never bin in disgrace afore ; It's the fast time I've ever bin took. Pve lived my life, and worked right j through In the rain an' the wind an' the sun ; I allers ha' done the best as I knew ; Now Pm 72 and done." « 'Ow do I live ? Wy I mostly starve, 'Cept for scraps as some kind folks gives, An I sleeps on the grass with the sky for a quilt, 'Taint costly the way wot I lives. Don't send me ter gaol for bein' poor ! Don't ...
