Our Novel. A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. "A stern chase is a long chase" THE SECOND PART. CHAPTER III. MAIL DAY AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886
Our Novel A STERN CHASEE. -» A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. " A stern chase is a long chase" THE SECOND PART. CHAPTER III. MAIL DAY AGAIN. The interest inspired in Lilias by Colonel Courtland and his nephew helped to divert her mind from the apprehension with which she had regarded the disclosure of Hugh Ross- lyn's love-affair, and the disappoint- ment occasioned by his silence. Any- thing out of the common, any innovation upon her blameless but unspeakably dull experience, was welcome to Lilias to a degree that she hardly realised in her usual state of unassuming quiet-mindedness ; and the quaintness of the Colonel's ways was very far out of the common. His &nbsp; nephew, Julian, charmed her by his &nbsp; love of music, and his already remark- able ability as a pianist. There was no respect in which Lilias so keenly felt that in the absence of Hugh her life was a lonely one as in that of her music. Dr. Rosslyn never listened to music in his own house—...
CONTEMPT OF COURT. [FROM THURSDAY'S WEST AUSTRALIAN] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886
! CONTEMPT OF COURT. 1 ,-? , ~" I [FKOM THUEBDAT'S WEST AUBTEAlIAN ] THE motion made on Tuesday morn- ing to have the WEST AUSTRALIAN adjudged guilty of contempt encçd as most intelligent men believed it would. Ninety-nine out of a hundred had no doubt already anticipated the decis- ion of the Supreme Court, with the ex- ception of one particular. We were charged with an attempt to interfere with and pervert the course of justice by commenting on the case of Fenwick v. .Barnett while Still stto judice. The court decided in the first place thct that case was not pending, and sec- ondly thal even if it were still sub judice it bad not been alluded to. No con- tempt of court therefore had been com- mitted. Under these circumstances the Bench declined to make the rule absolute, and dismissed the motion, but without costs. It appeared that this journal though it did not comment on fenwick v. Btrnett, while pending, had nevertheless " sailed .very close to the wind " and to mark the con- ...

The Judas Tree. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886
The Judas Tree. The Jadas tree is the great life destoyer of the vegetable world. Long before the leaves appear upon the branches tKe gorgeous blossoms ornament them, and they look like scarlet sunbeams caught upon the boughs. The brilliant beauty of the crimson flowers attract thousands of tiny insects, and the wild bees seek to draw honey from their ex- quisitely shaped cups. But every insect, bee ! or butterfly that ventures to rest npon the edge of its blossoms is overcome by a fatal, curious sort of opiate or sleeping draught which the flower juice contains, and drops dead on the ground beneath.

Satisfied vritü the Gas. He wa» complaining in the most bitter manner about the size of his gas bill when the fat, bald-headed man in the corner of the car remarked : " I have burned that com- pany's gas for thirteen years, and neW* had to complain." "Ever change yonr meter P" " Never." " How often have you had it tested?" "Not a single time." "Well, well! Never overcharged youf" "No." "And you are perfectly satisfied P" " Perfectly." The fat man got off at the nert comer, and the other observed to his left-handed neighbor : " Who do you sup pose he is !" " Oh, I've known him for years. He's the President of the gas com- pany you mentioned !"
Equal to a Faro Outfit. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886
Equal to a Faro Outfit. The young man of wealth is constantly seeking new means of spending his income. It used to be the thing to buy teams and ballet girls and y¡ chts-now the rich young man buys a base Hil club. Jim Lucas, the St. Louis, millionaire, indulged in the luxury of a club, and now his example is being fol- lowed by other men of means. Erastus Wiman, of Staten Island, has just bought the Metropolitan Base Bill Club and will take it over to New Brighton for his own amuse- ment. Pretty soon a man who dosen't own a base ball club will not be admitted to the highest society.
A Message of Importance. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886
A Message of Importance. In a certain village in Maryland a small boy kioked up a breeze in the parish church one Sunday. It seems that a certain good woman bought a calf's head and put it on to boil, leaving her little boy to mind it while she went to church close by. The minister had reached his " Fifthly, my brethren," when a small boy stuck his head in the door and whispered : " Mamma !" The good woman recognised lier son instantly, -and began at once to make signs to him to leave the door. " Mamma !" again came the whisper-this time a little louder than before. The mother shook her finger at the boy warningly, and indulged in other familiar pantomime with which ehe was accustomed to awe her son. The boy was excited and in dead earnest. Raising his voice he shouted : " Mamma, yon needn't wink and blink at me ; but you had better come home right away, for the cali's head is buttin' all the dumplins out of the pot."

Toothache and the Angels. Ii is said by those who know that ¿very man is accompanied by two angels. The one oVer his Tight shoulder writes down «very good thing ho says, while the one over his left shoulder makes a note of everything evil. Now, whenever a man has the toothache . throe two anpels take a vacation and go fish' . ing. Nothing good can be said which dis penses with the servioes of the angel over the right ehonjder. The ángel over the left . sbonldor knows full well that the toothache / &lt;i renders a man irresponsible, and that lt j wouldn't be quite fair to repeat hie remarks, eo his services alsrç are dispensed with.

OUR B UN BUR Y L tiTTER. The past week with us has been un- eventful and nothing has transpired worthy of being1 specially recorded bat as it appears that by renmiuiug silent, even if I Irvve nothing to report, the very existence of Bunbury is liable to be for- gotten, I hope you will consider this i Worthy of insertion merely for the purpose of reminding yonr readers that there is such a place as Bunbury in W.A.. Mr. Wisbey who purchased the " Prince of Wales" hotel property last week has privately bought the furniture stock etc. appertaining thereto for the sum of £535. This brings the whole purchase money io £2605 and it is generally considered that Mr. Wisbey has secured a great bargain. Included in the last purchase ia plaut for carrying on brewing operations and an aerated water machine, complete and ia the schedule I also notice several horses, a carriage and a spring cart-Mr. Wisbey takes possession of his property to-night and I understand has arranged to put a person in ch...

LAU communications for this column should be written on one side of the paper only, and be addressed to HOUSEWIFE, WESTEBN MAIL OFFICE, Perth. ¡.BY A HOUSEWIFE.] THE KITCHEN. GrBAVY. The quality of gravy she wakes is one of the best tests ot the ability of a cook, lu the making of gravy there are four things to be considered-flavour, colour, smell and consistency. Too often gravy is like thin beef tea or a heavy paste. We will speak of the gravy which is made with a joint, and that which is served with duck, goose, &c. Suppose the gravy be that of a leg of mutton ; when the leg is sufficiently roasted, take the dripping pan carefully and pour oif slowly in one corner ? all the fat into a basin. At the bottom of the hot fat in the dripping pan will be seen a brown sediment ; thia is the gravy. The object to be attained is to pour off the fat, aud leave this sediment. Great care is, of course, necessary in the opera- tion. Then pour ¿-pint of boiling water into the dripping pa...

FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886
FASHIONS. "Iris," in the Leader, Bays;-There is a perfect mania fur beads in the present fashions in Loudon and Paris, su that we may expect this bead epidemic to extend to Australia with the new season's goods, which, by the way, will be here shortly. Tho beads par excellence for personal adornment are, by Fashion's stem decree, made' of wood, and are best known as " rosary beads." It is said that in the commonest little shops these brown wooden beads are to be seen hanging ap in strings, and the carved ones, such as ire remember seeing at the late Inter- colonial Exhibition in the oriental courts, are also eagerly sought after. Rosary bead passementeries are in high favour, and, according to tho Queen, it is ono of tiie fancy work " fads " of the day to collect brown wooden beads of all kinds, and adapt them tb bronze leather, brown braid or velvet, tracing a design, and working it with silks. This work, when finished, is utilized for collars, cuffs, and waistcoats, and also makes...

The Salvation Army's Operations. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886
The Salvation Army's Operations. The Salvation Army intend to draft all the " cadets " in the Clapton Training Homes inte the " field " for two months. According to the announcement there is at present a great difficulty found of providing " cadets " with really first-rate experimental training in field work, so it is the intention of the Training Home Staff to despatch a number of men with vans similar to those at present in use by the "cavalry corps " of the Army to dis- tricts within 100 miles of London, a number on "revival work " in the Eastern Counties, and the rest on a singing tour. The "cadets" will be sent on similar expeditions with large omnibuses instead of vans as supplied to the men.. Some of the women will go on a "revi 1 val " tour in Kent, similar to that of the men. The vans and omnibuses are now being con- structed, and will shortly be delivered and despatched on the expedition, the vans hav r, lng sleeping accomodation for thirteen men, .and cooking utensils.

AN UNFINISHED WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886
AN UNFINISHED WEDDING. Why did Lord Verriner wander ii strange and tropical climes, explor« Japau and Timbuctoo, and attempt t&lt; cross the Himalayas ? The n'obU earl only tried to get married once and in the 6tury of that wedding is contained the reason for his be. coming such a distinguished travellei and growing such a very long beard. Lord Verrintîr had been going tht pace ever since he' came into his titlt and got hold of his property ; and, al the time of which I am speaking, though the former necessarily re. ma hied intact, the latter was practi cally noa-existeut. Me had borrowed from his bootmaker, his tailor, and big jewellers, after having previously exhausted the patience and generosity of che Jews. Gambling, racing, and women had, in fact, ruined him. But still his title and position had a marketable value, for bis was one ol the oldest and most distinguished families in England. But this market- able value was now only of one kind.
