The New Rifle for the Army. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

The New Rifle fdr the Army. At the present time there is considerable activity at the Boyal Small Arms Factory, Enfield Dook, the employes working till a late hour «very evening. During the last eight months the men worked till eight and ten o'clock every night and it is anticipated that during the current year they will be quito as busy. This is accounted for by issuing the Martini-Henry rifle to the volunteers, and the making of the new rifle for the army. The new weapon is called the Martini-Enfield, the Martini breech being retained, thc alterations being in tho barrel and the weight of the pro- jectile. This new weapon is considered far in advance of the Service arm of any other nation. !

Gounod pay up the .£10,000 - damages in which the famous composer was amerced by the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court of Justice, London, on May 7th last. So, at least, says M Blavet, the well known chronicler pf the ".Figaro," who signs himself " Pariais." According to this gentle- man, who has lately had an interesting, con- versation with Mrs, Weldon, M. Gounod will at once receive a summons to pay, within 2 hours, the amount of damages awarded b; the English Court, or 250^000 fr. : in th moneys of the French Eepublic. M.

A New Dog Muzzle. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

A Kew Dog Muzzle. There have been several new inventions in the way of muzzles recently.

The mnzíléís made of wire to fit over the dog's heaJl, BO that it cannot slip off ; a strap or collar fastening it round the neck.

Sporting. SPORTING GOSSIP [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

SPORTING GOSSIP (BT VINDEX.) "Wo liare now entered upon active preparations for the bye meeting of the W.A. Turf Club, which is fixed to take place on the 13th of next month. When ?the proposal to have a second meeting during the year on the Perth course was suggested, it was poiuted ont that it was .desirable in the interests not merely of the Club but chiefly of the owner« of horses. The proposal was carried with «unanimity, and it was left to the stewards to fix the various events to be placed on the card. They must have felt that they ¿ad a very responsible task to perform, for had they fixed upon a heavy pro programme the affair might have been a ¿asco, while had they gone in for a tame one, they would hare failed to secure -public patronage. Fortunately, they hit' «pou a happy medium, which seems to liave pleased every foody concerned.

The value of the newspaper. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

The value of the newspaper. It is very often thought that newspaper reading is a mere amusement,-simply a method of passing time. But, looked at more thoughtfully, it ought to be re- garded as a kind of reading which is not mere occupation for a leisure moment, but an essential part of the constant work of life. It has been observed that the modern newspaper corers the widest field cf unman thought, and fur- nishes that kind of mental food of which human beings are most in need. Jost as in the education of chil- dren it is considered desirable to teach them French and music if it can be man- aged, but considered essential to make them learn reading, writing, and arith- metic, so,-it is in regard to older studies in the great school of the world-find a little time, if you can, for history, travel, science and general literature, but fer the newspapers, determine resolutely to make time. lu this days newspapers are among thc tiret essentials for an intelligent mind. Not only do they k...

The Plague of Flies. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

! The Plague of Flies. It is net so long ago since Dr. Jameson in the columns of our contempory the West Australian, added another terror to existence, hy pointing out the dangers to which we are subjected from the presence amongst as of that "musical cuss," the mosquito. But it seems we hare not yet reached the end of our troubles. Scien- tists have recently discovered that the common house fly is often a medium for conveying infectious diseases. The dis- covery led to a general discussion on the subject in the old country, and, as there are just now sufficient flies in most colon- ial dining rooms "to make one think all the plagues of Egypt had not yet passed . away, it may be of interest to refer to what an authority on flies and infection has written on the subject. An eminent scientist, Dr. Hague, writing to a leading London journal says, in effect, that, as a ' means of importing infection, flies are a danger to which ho had long paid serious attention, and that he had often w...

The Mystery of the Severed Hand. From New Zealand, by the last mail, we have another chapter, but not the ?denouement of the sensational mystery of the severed hand, which has been exciting such intense interest throughout that Colony for some «eeks past. It will be remembered that we gave an outline of the story in these columns a fortnight ago, .¿how a certain HOWARD, who had insured Ms life for between £2000 and £3000, mysteriously disappeared, and was sup- posed to hare been drowned while bathing at a little watering-place close to Christ- church. The insurauce people, however, -were callous and sceptical, aud refused to hand over the amount of the drowned one's policy to his bereaved widow. They could -not bring themselves to believe that the .fine young fellow had really gone. Like LONGFELLOW, they preferred " to labour and to wait " rather than to be in atty un- due hurry to pay £2,500. Subsequently a severed band solemnly appeared on the .«scene of the supposed tragedy, Alth...
