The Postal Note System. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

The Postal Note System. Among ¿lie resolutions adopted by the Legislature last Session was oue intro- duced by Mr. STEERE in favour of the introduction of the postal note system-a system that has been adopted in England and in most of the Australian colonies with great advantage and convenience to the public. The scheme, it will be remem- bered, isone which may be roughly describ- ed as proposing to make post office orders, under certain conditions, mure serviceable as a circulating medium. His Excellency the GOVERNOR, in replying to the address of the House ou tile subject, said that so Soon as the exact amount of thc surplus funds remaining at the close of the year could be ascertained, he would take into consideration, and, if possible, comply with the request of the House in the matter. The time has now come for the fulfilment of the promise, and we are at once to obtain the benefits of this new device. The success which has attended the introduction of (he postal system in the ...

Hints for the Farm and Garden. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

Hints for tue Farm and Garden. The pullet that roosts on the tree is not a winter layer. Pears and all similar fruit should be pick' ed when free from rain or dew« The Rural New Yorker says : " What this country needs is less hog and hominy, and more chicken and celery." Maize meal baked ia the form of corn bread is an excellent food for fowls of all ages, and especially for young chicks. Chicks of the larger varieties will eat wheat or cracked corn a day or two after hatching, and it should always be kept be- fore them. Because a certain method on a certain field hos appeared to be successful, it is by no means certain that the best success has been reached. The Farm Journal says that when carry { ing a hog to the pole at killing-time it is i well to use a pair of horseshoes in joining hands under the hog. You can get a better hold. A horseshoe has been invented that comes on and off like a man's shoe. A rim at the bottom and a buckle at the back hold it in place. A pod protects th...

Preparing for Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

Preparing for Drought. The troubles and losses incident to the late drought are to a great extent man's own, seeking. The squatter takes up large tracts of country known to he naturally waterless, puta stock on, perhaps trusting to sell to ?some inexperienced buyer, and whether he does or does not sell makes no difference except to the individual pocket. The dry season is certain to come, and then the deaths of stock are enormous. Greed was the cause of it. Or the station may be one with a good frontage to a river; the pro- prietors live at their ease in one or other of the. large cities, but in order to get returns they urge their unfortunate manager to stock up. He fences in a paddock and puts, say,- 10,000 sheep into it, and they for a time thrive welL Then come instructions to him to fence in the whole of the run. Another paddock *is fenced, and instead of ruuniug the sheep out of the first into the new one, and so letting the eaten-down grasses recover, an additional 10.000 are...

Hints on Sowing Grain. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

Hints ou Sowing Grain. Yoong f ärmere are often troubled in sowing grass seed or grain, or eren artificial fértil isers, to so proportion it as to get a speci- fied amount per acre and have it evenly upon the field. They often find that they have been too liberal at first, and must soant the rest of the field or obtain an extra allowance. If they will take the pains to space off the square rod to begin with, and then weigh out the 160th part of what they want upon an acre, and sow that amount upon the square rod, they can cee how thickly they have covered the ground, and a little care and observation wUl enable them to main- j tain nearly the same amount through, the field. It may be easier to hire an experienced man to do the work, but the good farmer should know how to do his own work, that he may be independent of hired labour, and when he does employ others, may know whether or not they are doing his work promptly.

Over-feeding of Fowls a Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

Over-feeding of Fowls a Mistake. The greatest mistake made in feeding fowls is in'overfeeding. Hens are gorged with food which makes fat instead of provid- ing those elements which go to make np the egg. Com consists almost wholly of starch I and oil, and while it is a good for fattening t fowls, it is one of the worst of all foods for , producing eggB. No one food contains all the needed elements, and a mixture of several kinds should be given.

ANOTHER REJOINDER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

ANOTHER REJOINDER. TO THE EDITOB. SIE,- In your issue of today's date, I notice a letter fromms Lordship the Bishop of Perth, in which his Lordship leads the public to believe that tho Bettlers of the Gascoyne object to have a minister of re- ligion settled amongst them. Now I am not prepared to say that a request was made to the Bishop by the Gascoyne settlers for the appointment of a clergy- man to that district, but I do know that the matter has been talked over upon 1 more than one occasion by the settlers, ! when promises of support were given of ; five, seven, and ten pounds annually from j each. When Mr. Lawrence visited our dis- trict in 1884, he only saw a few of the settlers, who chanced to come into Car- narvon on business while he was there. Had the Rev. gentleman taken the trouble while in the district to visit the settlers and ascertain from them what support they were willing to give towards the sal- ary of a clergyman, £ feel sure that the result of such enquiry woul...

A.REJOINDER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

A .BE JOINDER. TO THE EDITOE. SIE,-Pray allow me space to make a few remarks in auswer to the Rev, Mr. Campbell's letter. I feel reluctant to enter upon a controversy that has excited so much warmth of feeling, but as the question hus gone so far, and is engaging BO much attention, perhaps it is better that all that is possible should be said on either v side. Allow me to question the . accuracy of the statement that a "large proportion of our people are of opinion that there is something wrong in the relationship between the blacks and the squatters." 1 venture to say that this opinion is only held by a small minority, most of them pt-rsonB who know too little of the matter and have not given it sufficient consider- ation to entitle them to express an opin- ion upon it. The fact of the natives hav- ing become useful and contented servants instead of the wretched and degraded remnant to be seen in most other portions of Australia, has naturally excited some curiosity and from recent...

FAILURE OF THE COMMERCIAL BANK. ' 1 w- - ON Friday week aa application was made in Chambers by Mr. R. S. Haynes on behalf of Mr. J. Mackay, of the firm of Sand«, McDougall & Co. for a Garnishee order against Mr. Anderson, the manager of the Commercial Bank of Sooth Australia, to attach a sum of £358 3s. in the coffers of the bank. Mr. Burt, on the part of the bank, opposed the ap- plication, which was argued before Mr. Justice Stone. For4he applicant it was argued in effect that the moneys were sufficiently in Mr. Anderson's possession to satisfy the requirements of the Attach- ment of Debts Act, with respect to mak ng a Garnishee order. Mr. Burt,on the other hand, contended that the money was in the possession of the bank, and that it was outside the control of Mr. Anderson.

BOUND TO GET SOME MILK. (NEW YORK TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

BOUND TG GET SOME MILK. (NEW TOBE TIMES.) "My story," said the New Tort man, *' isn't a bit funny. May be some of you know Hiram B. Stebbins ? He's in feathers, artificial flowers, ladies' notions, hat trimmings, and such. A morose, cross, kind of man, that don't make friends outside of the trade." " Wo often crossed oue another on the road, but after saying ' Howd'ye,' that's al! the words' we exchanged. A. year ago I met him going West from Dubuque on a scalding hot day in July; thermometer away up in the nineties and the ear just in a blaze. The car full and a great many women aboard. Just back of me was a nice looking young woman dressed in deep mourning, and she had a baby in her arms, a wee, wee thing, and that child was wailing pitifully, and the young woman was crying. It was just a mite of a child, puny-looking, and, I should judge, barely six week old. Back of her sat Stebbins, looking as cross and surly as a bear with a sore head, apparently annoyed by the cries of that b...

Preparation of Stud Sheep for Show. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

Preparation of Stud Sheep for Show. After the close of the annual sheep shows discussions have, on several occasions, arisen in the press, notably in the columns of Tlie Awtralasian, regarding the manner ia which sheep at those shows are presented for com- petition. Dissatisfaction has been distinct- ly and unequivocally expressed by many purchasers at the results to their stud flocks of using those wonderful works of art, the housed, sheeted, and otherwise prepared rams of which so much is made at thé shows. The announcement on Tuesday of the work done by the committee of the Australian Sheepbreeders' Association on the previous evening, when the prize-list for the next an- nual show was arranged, has been received in some quarters with a feeling of dismay. It is assumed that as no change in the regu- lations or conditions of exhibitions lie re- ferred to, none is about to be made. The ad- dition of certain prizes (superfluous in the longwool classes) to those for grass fed meriuoe...
