NICOL BAY AND DE GREY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

NICOL BAY AND DE GREY. . 1 y-. 1 (BY BUCOLIC.) I Upon the publication of Mr. J?. T. Gregory's journal, in 1861, describing the country he bad passed over in the Nicol Bay district, many practical men came to the conclusion that it would prove a profitable country for pastoral purpose*, and not a few of our young settlers felt inclined to speculate in that direction. But in those days capitalists in our small community did not care to inrest in undertakings so far away. Eventually Mr. W. Padbury, in conjunc- tion with Mi. Donald Macpherson, took thc matter up und chartered the barque Tien Tsin, and taking a cargo of sheep, cattle, and horses, sailed on the 23rd of April 1863 from Fremantle, accom- panied by his brother-in-low, Mr. C. Nairn, who was to manage the concern ; taking also a strong staff of labourers, team», and all requisites for establishing a large station. After reaching Nicol Bay some time was lost in finding a suit- able landing place, bat at length Peter Hedland, wh...

A, Neglected Institution. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

A, Neglected Institution. A visit to the Museum attached to the TPerth Mechanics' Institute cannot fail to .give rise to a feeling of regret that so - much apathy continues to be manifested by the publie as regarás that much ne- glected institution. It certainly is surpris- ing that we do not by this time possess a much more interesting and varied collec- tion of specimens than are now in posses- sion of toe committee. Almost any place ' of importance in the old country posses .ses a fair museum, even where the want »of it would not be badly felt. But here -with the exception of the nucleus of one which, through the disinterested efforts of an enthusiastic collector at Fremantle, is .' -being formed in that town-we have only /. one euoh institution for the whole colony. ?v;3Te't» though in the metropolis of West r-- /ern Australia it is languishing for support, lt 'should be borne in miud that this -, Museum is not of merely metropolitan interest.

THE REV. R. W. CAMPBELL IN REPLY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

THE RET. R. W. CAMPBELL IN REPLY. TO THE EJDITOE. - F SIB,-You must pardon me if I take serious exception to your statement of the case in to-day's issue. For the sake of brevity let it be granted that Mr. Gribble's .published journal betrayed alack of judg- ment; that there are immoralities per- petrated in Perth, and thafît would be exceedingly injudicious tor any minister to go Scorn house to house collecting ^grievances for publication. There is only one other concession to make, but that is a grave one-viz.,that the Rev. Mr.Gribble is at once impracticable and unreliable. In the absence of all imaginable motive .for slandering a whole community one must hesitate before making the fiual con- cession. In this connection I note that the Sublicatiou complained of did not precede ut followed the outburst of public repu . diation. Mr. Gribble gave it as his .defence after public attack,so that it must be accepted not as the cause but as a result of the agitation. With this exception,...

THE MIDLAND RAILWAY. TURNING OF THE FIRST SOD BY HIS EXCELLENCY. SPEECHES AT THE LUNCHEON. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

THE MIDLAND RAILWAY. TURNING OF THE FIRST SOD Bf HIS EXCELLENCY. . SPEECHES AT THE LUNCHEON. THE ceremony of turning the first sod of the railway to be constructed by Mr. Waddington's syndicate from Guildford to Walkaway was performed yesterday by His Excellency the Governor. The contract for the construction of the rail vway was signed only on Friday by Mr. Price-Williams on the part (of the syndi- cate, and by Mr. Edward Keane, the contractor. It is characteristic of all the preliminares connected with this project that after the lapse of only a couple of days the contractor should have been ready to proceed with the work. The invitations to the ceremony and the luncheon which followed were issued by Mr. Keane, and arrangements were made for a special train to carry the guests from Fremantle and Perth to the spot, a short way above Guildford, at which the Midland will join the Eastern Railway. This special train was fully occupied,. and ; amongst those present, j despite the threa...

Our Novel A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. "A stern chase is a long chase" THE SECOND PART. CHAPTER VI. NIGHT-WATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 March 1886

A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. " A stern chase is a long chase "     THE SECOND PART. CHAPTER VI. NIGHT-WATCHES.   Dr. Rosslyn's professional instincts were always strong enough to get the better of any other impulses or feel- ings, with which they might be brought into conflict by circum- stances. This law of his being, to which, doubtless, his success was largely owing, was not abrogated to the disadvantage of his own house- hold. A patient within his own gates,   or those of any other person, would always receive his attention and con- sideration as a patient first, let there be what other relation there might be- tween that individual and himself. Therefore when Lilias faltered out her confession that she had received later news from Hugh than she had acknowledged to him, he controlled, in obedience to his invariable rule, the surprise which he felt. If Lilias had not behaved well in this matter, Li...

Winter Pruning. [FROM THE "GARDEN."] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

I "Winter Pruning. i [Paon THB "Gabden.""] The .following remarks written in winter, for England, must be read with attention to the difference in seasons : Pruning is one of the roost important operations in connection with fruit culture, while ornamental trees, shrubs, and especially roses, are improved by the judicious shortening of their branches now or in spring. All kinds of fruit trees tbat require attention in the regulation of their growths may be pruned now, and the sooner the work is accomplished the better, except, perhaps, in the case of young gooseberry bushes iu localities where small birds usually devour the buds. Spring pruning is then the best, as it ceitainly is for roses that have been established a year or more in their positions ; but those newly planted may have their growths shortened now, and more closely put back in March. When the pruning of established roses is completed now there is very great risk ot the buds that are left for producing future growths a...

HARVEST RETURNS. ^ , v "j The harvest returns collected by the' * South Australian Reguter show that ' about 1,950,000 acres have been sown " with wheat, being 7,000 acres more than in the preceding season. Ot this quanti- . ty 320,000 acres were not reaped-that is to say there was nothing to reap, or what crop there was was mown for < hay. ... This reduces the area actually stripped for wheat to 1,630,000 acres. From -this ' , area the estimated average yield is 3 bushels 10 pounds per acre, which makes the total production 5,161,666 bushels. «< This, after deducting requirements for .¿ seed aud food, leaves a surplus available for export of 36,000 tons, or 283,000 j j tons less than was exported last year, The average per acre ou the whole area " ( sown is a little over 2} bushels. . >.

Wit and Humour. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

WIè ana Wamnb Two or three gentlemen, including amongst them a director, were travelling together on the London and North Western line, when the train drew up at Wigan Station. One of the passengers, ignorant of the particular locality, put his head out of the window, and seeing a porter passing, politely said :t" What station is this, my good man ?" " Wigan, to be sure," replied the porter, in a very surely tone. The director, hearing what passed, was much annoyed, and, turning to his com- panions, remarked : " This sort of thing will never do-we must bave more civility on this line. Will you',* addressing the gentle- man who had not yet spoken, " kindly put the same question te the porter when he comes this way ?" Soon the man appeared, and the gentleman said, Porter, will you be good enough to tell me the name of this station f " " Wigan, to be eure," again came the answer, and in a surlier tone than before.

Proposed Reformation [?] Male Attire. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

Proposed Reformation lu Male Attire. The latest suggestion in the way of reform in clothing for men comes from Connecticut, and is in favor of the manufacture of bonnets for the male sex. It is claimed that tight hats cause baldness ani weaken the male intellect, and that the outlines of the ordinary head- gear of men are very unaesthetic, and unwor- thy the advanced taste of these days. It is claimed that Scotchmen in the old pictures- que days used to wear a kind of bonnet, and in these times it is known that certain male paragons of our cities have taken to corsets. Moreover, as the girls have long been trying to get into trousers and men's coats, the bon- nets for men would only be a natural re- venge. Man is a poorly decorated animal at best. But perhaps he hod better imitate wo- men's hats rather than their bonnets. The long hair and the false hair necessary to set off a modern bonnet would increase the «ze of men's heads far beyond their intrinsic merits, and if any change is...

Depending on the Way it is Put. A darkey, talking with a friend on the sub- ject of answered prayers, was asked if the Lord always answered his prayer.

He said-" If I ask the Lord to send me a turkey I won't get it, but if I ask him to Bend me after a turkey I-always get one before daybreak."

The simplest dinner that was . ever cooked can be made to look elegant and appetising by a little trouble being exorcised in having spothtss dishes and in the use of say a little parsley, beetroot, lemon, horse radish, or any other garnish.

"Dear James." (From the Toledo Blade.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

"Dear James." I (From the Toledo Blade.) I I have a friend who is a commercial tra- veller, and on his return from a trip he al- ways comes up to see me, and enlivens my existence by a recount of his experiences ou the road. *' Well, Charley, anything nsw ?" said I, as Charley tilted my best chair against tbe freshly-papered wall, and puffed vigorously at one of my Btogas. "Not much," said be. " I'm sick of the road. Too much of a dog's life. I'm going to quit and settle down." I expected this. Charley has been going to quit during the four years that I have known him, but he never quit«, and in common with many more drummers, will shake the hand of many a hotel clerk yet before he finally settles down. « What's the matter, trade dull?" I ask- ed. " No, trade's pretty fair, but it isn't as it used to be. Why, when I first went on the road there was some fun in it. I only car- ried one truuk, and I could get the trade to look at my samples. Now I carry three, and it's the hardest kin...
