FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

FASHIONS. A Notable Trousseau.-The Queen gives a description of beautiful trousseau which has just been completed. The wedding gown is of magnificent cream satin, with satin pentes ; the fronts em- broidered in pearls. The train was not the Court train length, but just long enough to flow gracefully, the plaits at the side being graduated, and there were bouquets of orange blossom scattered, about both sides of the skirt, The bridesmaids wore dresses of cream brocade, trimmed with lace and made with tucks ; the bodices high, the hats havmg large wings at the sideA The bride's mother's dress was of grey velvet, grey being just now much in fa vom*. Another notable gown was a grey cloth arranged with velvet panels. An- other was au Indian red cashmere, with plush. A useful dress iu the trousseau was a greeu serge trimmed with beaver ; just the kind of gown that will last a long lime aud always look well, stauding much wear and tear, points brides would do well to take into account.

The Farm in February. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

j The Farm in February. (rue remarks uud;ineath taken from the Observer are given as being also especially suitable to Western Australia.) Probably in many places one-half of what should be the average yield of our wheat fields is lost through the presence of weeds, principally wild oxts, and " cockspure.'* If one-half the land cou d be thoroughly cleansed it would, therefore, yield as much as the whole in its dirty coudition, to say nothing about numerous subsidiary advan- tages. It only aggravates the dïrty condi- tion of the land to plough it or to lay it up in fallow, because, ia the first place, the 6eeds of the weeds are buried by the pic ugh and those which are deepest do not epnng into vitality till they are brought nearer the surface at some future time, so that the field will produce weeds for many years after. The best way to clean a field dirty with wild oats is to barrow or scirify it at once, so that the whole of the seeds near the surface may come up a fter the first ...

DEDICATION OF ST. PATRICK'S CHURCH AT YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

DEDICATION OF ST. PATRICK'S CHURCH AT YORK. -« The members of the Catholic Church resident at York celebrated on Sunday last the completion of a ten years labour. It was iu 1875 that the resident priest, the popular Father Gibney, raised his voice in a demand for a more suitable place of worship tlnm the small unpreten- tious building the Catholics of York then occupied. The appeal met with a warm response from the public, and the project was approved by the Bishop of the Diocese. It was wisely decided that when they wore about the work they would endeavour to erect at York a place of worship substantial, commodious, and possessing architectui al merit. The site which was chosen is on the main road, only a little way from the railway station, and was obtained as h ¡çrant from Govern- ment. The foundation stone was laid about nine years ago by «he Right Rev. Dr. Grivor. Since then the work of col- lecting funds has gone on atong with the work of construction, this duty being chiefly ...

PERTH LITERARY SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

PERTH LITERARY SOCIETY. -v " Anonymous letters " at the Perth Literary Society's meeting on Mon- day night produced contributions on the following subjects :-" The culti- vation of the memory," "Can a mau marry on £150 a yearP" "How to increase the interest of junior members iu the Society," " First Impressions," and a letter continuing some arguments on the " effect of trees upon rainfall" ques- tion, discussed at a previous meeting. The attendance of members was very good and the criticism on the various letters fairly full and well directed. The paper on "first impressions," however, rose above criticism, being a production of some literary merit, giving in very humourous style the first impressions supposed to be caused amongst a native tribe by the advent of white settlers. Before the meeting closed a vote was taken as to the Disestablishment of the English Church being a desirable subject for the Society to take up and the major« ity deciding in the affirmative, a debate on th...

FREMANTLE POLICE COURT. -» The following cases were heard at the Fremantle poUce court on Monday. Brid- get Palmer charged with being drunk was sentenced to 21 days. She was further charged with striking James Boss on the ., ', head with an axe. The winess Robb said he did not recollect anything beyond feel- ing some one strike him, when he found he was bleeding very much. He expres- sed a hope that the woman would be dealt with lightly. Thos. Jones said he saw the accused running after Bose, who was bleeding from the head, with an axe, and that when he called upon her to stop she threatened tto eerve him the same way. ** Mr. Slade said the charge was a serious one, and he should remand the accused for eight days.

A "PERFECT" FEMALE FIGURE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

A "Perfect" Female Figure. American maids and matrons, says the Philadelphia Record, have been led to study the requirements of the perfect female figure, with results, if current draperies correctly indicate, altogether distasteful to the classicists who point with pride to the master works of ancient sculptures as embodying the beautiful in feminine contour. A living counterpart of the Venus de Medici would be less than five feet in height, while weariug a No. 25 corset and a No. 7 shoe. This, to the woman of to-day, would mean hope- less clumsiness. The Popular Science Monthly, iu a recent issue, descends to particulars and affirms that to meet the requirements of a classic figure the pro- per dimensions should be-Height 5 feet 4| inches ; bust, 32 iuches ; waist, 24 inches » armpit to waist, 9 inches. This is further improved upon by giving the proportions of a " queenly " figure, thus ; -Height, 5 feet 5 inches ; bust, 31 inches ; waist, 264 inches; over the hips, 36 iuches. Th...

HOW TO COOK FROGS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

How to Cook Frogs. Stewed frogs are very appetizing, and if those who cannot overcome their aver- sion to the batrachia should eat them under another uauie they would no longer be prejudiced against this really delicate food. Everyone knows, of course, that only the hind legs are eaten. Skin the hind legs, put them mto boiling salted water, and let them boil for five minutes ; then take them out and throw them into cold water, and druin thoroughly as soon as cool. For two dozen frogs put in a stew pan two ounces of butter, set it on the lire, aud when melted put in the legs and fry for two minutes, tossing them now and then ; next sprinkle over them a tea- spoonful of flour, sthring with a. wooden spoon ; add two sprigs of parsley, one of thyme, one of bay leaf, two cloves, one clove of garlic, some salt, white pepper, and half a pint of white wine; boil gently until done, dish the legs, reduce the sauce on the fire, strain it aud mix with it the yolk of two eggs; pour over the frog...

The City Dirt. Il it the enervating influence of of the weather recently that ha» prevented the -municipal authorities from enforcing the by-law respecting the accumulation of rubbish io back yards P In certain parts -of the city, the yards are-to put matters plainly,-abominably dirty. The oc cupiere seem to fairly rorcl in rubbish. Ola boxea, ancient rags, crates, bones, bushes, and other equally useful and ornamental articles lie about in all direc- tions. The bare-footed urchins carefully 'thread their way amongst the broken bottles.

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. 26th February, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. \ -o PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. J , 26th February, 1886. The suspension of the Commercial Bank of South Australia, which was announced on Wednesday, took the community by surprise, but up to the present its effects upon trade here are not visible. Nearly the whole of the bank's deposits here were furnished by the Government, and the total amount of note circulation was less than ¿1000. From what is known of the position of the shareholder«, it is believed that both depositors and note holders are secure of recovering the full amounts àae to them, though a delay of some months may possibly occur. We hear of offers being made by a well-known specu- lator to purchase all the bank's notes at 17s. 6d. per ¿. By the official return of the bank's average liabilities and assets in this Colony for the quarter ended 31st December last it appears that, while its assets in this Colony only amounted to £22,000, its liabili- ties were £45,000, or more than double it...

The Horticultural Society. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

The Horticultural Society. Apropos of the recent show of the Horticultural Society, which was admit- tedly a fiasco, it may not be inopportuneto -, inquire how far the Society's sphere o£ , usefulness may be enlarged. Our valued J contribution " Hortus gives in his fl column some most serviceable and prac- \ tical suggestions. If they can be con- sidered feasible by the committee, we are satisfied nothing would more readily tend to the popularity and usefulness of this Society. The mere exhibition of fruits;, vegetables, and flowers, though one of the objects of such au association, is no1 the only or indeed the principal object. The great aim of institutions of tuts nature should be to encourage a higher degree of excellence m the cultivation of the . vegetable products already in the colony, to induce tho introduction of other and superior varieties of fruits and vegetables at present cultivated, and to promote "the importation of entirely new species. With a little trouble and ex...

The Orchard and Fruit Garden. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

The Orchard and Fruit Garden. .. Experience bas shown the necessity for making new plantings at intervals of a few years (from six to eight in a geueral way) in order to keep up a regular supply of both peaches and nec- tarines ; the former are, however, by far the most popular, and also yield better weight for weight. Those who are growing stocks for peaches may still bud them ; the buds will lie dormant until the spring unless they are forced to make an autumn growth-a result not to be desired so late in the season. Budding may also be continued on plums, apricots, apples, aud pears ; it is a neat and generally satisfactory method of propagat- ing almost all kinds of fruit trees,, Tho work of gathering fruits as they ripen is part of the routine labour at this Season of the year. Discretion is needed in deciding what fruits require hanging until ripe and what need gathering to be ripened in doors. There are several pears of both classes,-so that to generalise would be unsafe.
