VERSE—AND WORSE "To cheat thee of a sigh, Or charm thee to a tear." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

VERSE AND WORSE "To cheat thee of a sigh, Or charm thee to a tear." —MOORE.   "My friends," shrieked the speaker at the     anti-alien meeting, "there is trouble ahead, and we are facing a danger that is stabbing   us in the back." ....   A party of steerage passengers recently landed from a mail steamer en route from London to Sydney, were over at the South   Perth Zoo. Most of the party were White- chapel warriors of the most aggressive type. "'Ullo!" cried one, pulling up at the big   birdcages, : "Is this ere a horsetridge?" A   friend from Fogopolis guffawed in glee. "Git out," he cried, "It's a hemu." The others cam up, and it was suggested that the bird was a "heagle." One of the party walked over to a park keeper and inquired     the species of the bird. "It's neither a   horsetridge, a hemu, or a heagle," he   answered. ...

One Hundred and Sixteen Shots a Minute. A NEW AND WONDERFUL PISTOL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

One Hundred and Sixteen Shots A Minute. A NEW AND WONDERFUL PISTOL.   It is stated that the United States War Department is going to equip a cavalry regiment with 1,000 the deadly Luger pistols, a brand-     new invention that discharges bullets with tremendous velocity at the aston- ishing speed of 116 shots a minute.   Just think of it. Almost two shots a second. The remarkable pistol works on the automatic plan, similar to the auto- matic rapid-fired guns of the army and navy, where the recoil of the discharge is utilised to perform the functions of reloading. The pistol weighs less than two pounds, and all that is necessary is to keep it loaded and pull the trigger.               Tests recently made by the United States Board of Ordnance and Fortifi- cation at Washington have demon-       &nb...

NEARLY ELEVEN FEET HIGH. THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

NEARLY ELEVEN FEET HIGH. THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH.   Dame Nature has apparently out-   done herself in Edward Beaupre, the   young French Canadian giant, who   bids fair to rival the fabled one-eyed   giant Polyphemus, of Homer's time,   while he overtops by several feet   modern competitors. Beaupre, there- fore, enjoys the proud distinction of being the tallest man on earth. He is thirty years old, tips the scales at 587 pounds, and stands ten feet eleven   inches high. Each of his trousers legs can contain the figures of two ordinary persons, and there is sufficient cloth in one of his suits to outfit ten average men. The massive framework of each of his outstretched arms will bear the weight of three athletes. A man five feet ten inches by his side appears a mere   pigmy. One of the peculiarities about Beaupre is that his father and mother were of ordinary size. F...

HASHISH OF HACKETT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

HASHISH OF HACKETT. Mr. J.W.Hackett, M.L.C., of the West Australian, stated in his interview with the British Australian that in recent years he had not invested a red cent. in West Aus- tralian mining propositions because of the de- vious methods and malpractices of London directorates. And yet, owing to that ob- liquity of vision characteristic of the "hangman" in his public career, he has not by a single stroke ot the pen shown that he objected to the tactics in question. He has deliberately refrained from using the excep- tional facilities at his command to compel cleaner and healthier mining methods. John Winthrop's troubbles so long as the   advertisement rolled in ! He preferred Rather to Prostitute his great responsibilities as a public journa- list and tacitly condone practices that have made West Australia a by-word and a curse among foreign investors. Still, John Win- throp always had an eye to the main   chance, and when he put his money into th...

A NEW BREED OF FOWLS. [SEE ILLUSTRATION.] [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

A NEW BREED Of FOWLS. [SEE ILLUSTRATION.]   During recent years several new     varieties of fowls have been introduced   to Australia with marked benefit in   the direction of increased egg produc-     tion and improved table qualities.   Notable among the comparatively new breeds are buff and diamond jubilee     Orpingtons, white and partridge Wyan- dottes, Faveroles, Anconas, and Cam- pines. The last-named is the latest   novelty, and so far as is known, the only specimens in the Commonwealth are those lately imported from England .   to Renmark, South Australia. Cam- pines are small birds,.the hens about     4½lb. and the cocks about 6lb in weight. For our picture we are in- debted to the "Feathered World."

Our Sunday Serial THE MALLISON MYSTERY. BOOK THE FIRST. AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY [COPYRIGHT.] CHAPTER V. OVERTAKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

Our Sunday Serial     THE           MALLISON MYSTERY BY T.W. HANSHEW   BOOK THE FIRST. AMERICAN TRAGEDY. CHAPTER V.   OVERTAKEN. DARKNESS and stillness hung about her as she issued from behind the curtains, and draw- ing them closely together over the window groped her way along the wall in search of the door. Her feet sank soundlessly into the thick pile of the carpet ; she moved on like a spirit or a shadow, found the door, opened it cautiously, and stood in the broad luxurious corridor. The newel lamp—turned low, and burning like a cluster of luminous lilies in a sheaf , of silver leaves—shed a faint light, over the passage and guided her to te staircase. She went up the steps with the stealth of a cat, and crept unseen to the floor above. A light shining faintly from the door told her which was the chamber where Hilda Mallison lay, but passing by it, she entered a...

CHAPTER VI. A FREAK OF FATE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

CHAPTER VI. A FREAK OF FATE.   " Is it mach farther, Pharoah ? Is that the bridge where the lights are shining, lad? Oh, I am so cold, so   bitter, bitter cold ! Hush the dog or drive it back ; it has followed as long eno', and its barkin' seems uncanny with THIS agin' my bosom. Oh, hush it, hush it, and let us rest somewhere.   I tell thee I'm dead beat, and my heart   seems like to break."   "Courage, courage, Zillah, lass ! A bit more and we'll reach the bridge. Stand out agin' the storm a while   longer, there's a dear. The trampin'   is nigh over, lass, and I thank God we've eno' money to RIDE for the rest   o' the way." The speaker, a brawny young fellow of five-and-twenty, with a dark, cop- pery-hued complexion, crisp curling ink-black hair, and a ragged though kindly countenance looking out from beneath the brim of his battered bat, smiled tenderly upon his fagged com- pan...

A GREAT IRISH PLAYER. PEG WOFFINGTON'S TRAGIC FAREWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

PEG WOFFINGTON'S TRAGIC FAREWELL. In May, 1757— now almost a century and a half ago—a famous   Irish actress, Mistress Peg Woffing- ton, fell senseless on the stage when peaking the epilogue to "As You Like lt." Although she lived for three years, she never again spoke a line from the stage.   This beautiful woman and clever actress was a native of Dublin, where she was born on October 18, 1720 under circumstances which gave little promise of the brilliant position she eventually occupied. Her father was a bricklayer, and died when she was a child, leaving her mother, he sister,   and herself in a state of destitution. For a time the girl, who was even then so attractive in appearance, in spite of her poverty, as to excite the liveliest interest, used to earn a few pence daily by fetching water from the Liffey for the neighbors. Peg's earliest and, in fact,   Her only Occupation came from the State. There was a theatre presided ove...

MEDITERANEAN PIRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

For some hundreds of years and   well into the 19th century piracy was the principal occupation of the sea- board inhabitants of Morocco, as it was   of those of Algiers, Tripoli and Tunis. Thereupon the Mediterranean coast preyed upon the christian commerce of   the sea capturing Spanish, French, Genoese, Venetian and other craft. The times of the Stuarts were the palmy   days of piracy, both in the Moghreb and elsewhere. Many adventurers   and "gentlemen of fortune" from Eng-   land followed this lucrative profes-   sion, and their ships were to be found   upon every sea. Some of the Barbary corsairs sailed under European masters, and it has even been asserted, though   on what appears to be slender founda- tion, that the piracy was first introduced among the Moors by European rene- gades and fugitives from justice. James I gave these gentry some en-   ...

We are in a position to state definitely that Mr. W.J. George, M.L.A., has been ap- proached with a view to securing his accep-   tace of the appointment. At a first glance Mr. George's experience as an ironfounder might seem a sort of qualification for railway management, but it is none.

UTOPIA. BY DRYBLOWER. Shipping note: "The ship Aremone   which reoently arrived fiom Hamburg, brings news from the solitary little South Atlantic island of Tristan d'Acunha, the in- habitants of which asked for news of the world, their last information being 18   months old! They are governed by a veteran islander, who also acts as doctor and clergyman to his strangely isolated flock. In the islands, though cut off from civilisation, the disadvantages are few." An islet, lone and dreary, mid the wild At- lantic sweep—   A sentinel surrounded by its foes; Forbidding, from the beaches where the breakers roar and leap To its summit where the winter-litchen grows.       Apart from lands where mankind laughs   and sorrows day by day, The exiles there have bade the world adieu, And if they've little time to spend in un- productive play Their disadvantages are very few. In spite of isolation, to their rocky isle ...

THE EMPIRE'S TRADE. PROPORTIONAL DUTIES. LONDON, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 22 June 1902

THE EMPIRE'S TRADE. PROPORTIONAL DUTIES. LONDON, SATURDAY. In the course of a press interview Mr. Barton said that he favored preferential trade in the Empire if it was possible to overcome the surrounding difficulties, es- pecially Germany's threats of retaliation. An Imperial Zollverein was impossible at present, but mutual tariff concessions withiin the Empire were more practicable. The attention of the public of West Aus- tralia is drawn to the advertisement in our columns for the "Dove Brand" teas, which are grown and packed at Lindula, 2,000 feet above sea level, and pronounced absolutely pure by the analysts of Perth and Colombo. Analysis can be had on application to Arthur J. S. Cuzens, of 366 Hay-street, where great pains will be taken to instruct   the public as to the making of tea, and to the giving of our seven samples ; and we   might point out that the Bohoma Hondayi Co. sell only the teas they grow themselves.   Yesterday Messrs...
