KALGOORLIE KETCHUP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

KALGOORLIE KETCHUP.         BY KURRAJONG.   Rumor says that the A.W.A. balance sheet which is shortly to be published. will not disclose a very healthy state of things financially. The workers, either through bad luck ar bad judgment, seem to have a knack of getting hold of tanglers and muddlers to boss their affairs. A late general secretary —reputedly a capable man till his bead was turned by the Government placing him on the Mininig Commission—was allowed to retain his billet, out of some sense of mis- taken generousity, long after he had proved his total unfitness for such a responsible post. Serious lapses were condoned, be- cause it was recognised that the officer had done splendid work for unionism, and it was hoped that he had not exhausted his capaci- ties. Those hopes were not realised, and the present "ravelled skein" is the consequence.   The meanest man on the Fields, so I am   &a...

NORTHERN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

BY THE WIZARD. A very serious accusation has been made against the members of a roads board whose headquarters are at the musty Greenough flats. They are charged by a   clergyman of the locality that at their meetings; instead of energetically attending to their business of road-making or spieling they "swill beer and make the locality fetid with their blaspheming, obscenity, and most disgusting language generally." "Unfor-   tunately," their critic proceeds, "their   place of meeting is between two schools, and children and women have frequently to pass this very undesirable inferno, and to have to listen to their fathers and big brothers spitting all sorts of foulness and nastiness."   There surely, must be something very de-   moralising in the position of a roads board   member. The atmosphere of Parliament is said to have a very deteriorating effect both on manners and morals. But it can scarcely be w...

For the Farmers. RURAL TOPICS. Farmers' busy season. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

RURAL TOPICS. Farmers' Busy Season.   Continue seeding, unless area to be crop- ped is all sown. Subdivide large areas into conveniently sized paddocks. It will prove remunerative, as a larger numbre of stock can be depastured and estate more easily worked. Prepare land for main crops of potatoes. There are many worthless varieties on the market. Select the best known kinds that have proved prolific in the district in which they are to grow.     The work of pruning in the orchards and vineyard should now be commenced. A person taking this job in hand should be experienced and know hy the kind of tree he is to operate on the age of the wood   on which the fruit is produced. An inexperienced person could in an hour destroy the fruit-bearing wood, and so cut away what nature has been forming for   several years.   Tobacco seed should be sown at once in a bed or frame under oiled calico. This latter will keep ...

Brood Sows. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

Brood Sows.       No mistake in the treatment of brood sows is more common than penning them up night and day in close styes. Very often the sow is allowed to remain penned all through the period of gestation, and finally to bring her pigs into the world in the same quarters, the floors of which are often uneven and uncomfortable. At the same time the food given to the sow ts often solely artifi- cial, and the craving of' the animal for certain natural products and the salts con-   fained in the earth is unsatisfied. Such treatment promotes puerperal fever, with its disgusting consequences and loss to the breeder, while the young pigs are frequently ruptured and otherwise injured through the wretched accommodation in the stye. In ordinary Australian climates the best plan is to build the farrowing sheds against a well lined fence, leaving the end opposed to the weather side open, and keeping the shed well supplied with clean straw....

Hints About Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

Hints About Horses. The following, from medical classics,   should be read and prized by horsemen:—     It costs more to keep a poor horse than it does to keep a good one. Change the feed for your horses often enough to make them relish it.   Improper feeding is the cause of nine out of ten cases of sickness among horses. Every time you worry your horses you shorten their lives and days of usefulness. Sweat and dust cause the horses shoulders to gall. So do poor, ill-fitting collars.       The temperature of water for horses is not so much an object as tbe purity of it. While it is best to have the water cool it is.   more important to have it free from all im- purities. Mares in foal should have exercise and moderate work, and under no circumstances should they be subjected to harsh treat- ment, nor should they ever be allowed to go     where they would ...

Orange Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

Orange Trees.                 As to the age and size of orange trees, a Californian paper writes as follows:—As to   age, there are well authenticated instances of orange trees nearly or quite 400 years old. As to how big they grow we clip the follow- ing account of a big one from the "Florida Dispatch":—In the grove of Berrien Platt, six miles north of Plant City, is the biggest orange tree in Florida. This tree is known to have been planted out in 1842, probably     by old Mr. Hollingsworth, who at one time owned the place, and it has steadily grown to its immense proportions, without especial attention oftentimes in spite of bad usage and neglect. This tree now measures 5ft. 9in. around the body a little way from the   ground. It is not remarkable for its height,   but for the broad expanse of its branches. It has...

[?]CHARD WORK. HINTS FOR FRUIT GROWERS. No. IX. Liquid Grafting Wax. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

ORCHARD WORK.     HINTS FOR FRUIT GROWERS. BY J.C. BLACKMORE AND S.I. FITCH (New   Zealand Experts). NO. IX. Liquid Grafting Wax. An excellent grafting-wax may be made thus: Procure 1lb. resin, 1oz. beef suet or beef tallow, 1 tablespoon of spirits wine. Melt the resin in an old pan over a slow fire, and when melted, remove from fire and add the suet or tallow little by little, stirring constantly. Let this mixture cool down somewhat, and then mix in the spirits of turpentine. Lastly, add the spirits of wine in the same manner. Should the spirits of wine be added when the mix-     ture is too hot, much will be lost in evapora- tion, while if it is added when the mixture is too cold viscid lumps will lbe formed, and then it will be necessary to slightly heat the mixture. It is important to stir briskly in order to thoroughly mix the ingredients   well together. When cool the mixture   should be...

JARRAHDALE JACKANAPES. A REPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

W. G. Thornton writes:—"Your cor-   respondent "Athiest" waxesvery warm   on that much discussed subject—the     fitness or otherwise of the present   occupant of the position of postmaster in our local office. His quoting London "Punch's" cartoon may seem very apt, but let me tell him there is something in that line the general public would feel and appreciate a little more keenly. I allude to those numerous American   colored prints where in two pictures of   a dogfight are represented—one the going to the fight where the darkies say 'It's picking up stuff backing their dawg'; the other print is the return,   with down-cast countenances. The   darkies assert 'if it had not been for the other dawg ours would have won.'   Will, Sir, I propose to give your readers a fair case with as little bias as possible. Let us start at the begin- ing, When that Much E...

GERALDTON ABORIGINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

GERALDTON ABORIGINALS. "Old Settler: writes: The aborigi- nals being very similar to the old Romany of Europe in their habits, they will rather starve than live in a house or town. I do not wonder at it in the case of the natives here. If they go into a town they are hounded out of it. I know some of them who will not go there even to receive the   small dole of rations that is allowed them. I think it a great shame that these old natives are left to die of starvation in the bush if it were not for a half-cast and the settlers. There are a few of these old residents about the Capel who are getting too old to work and I should like to know why These Poor Wretches               cannot be served with a ration from a store here as well as in Bunbury or any other town? What becomes of the £5,000 a year which is allowed for them ? Is it all swallowed up in fat salaries to men who do not...

THE FROG IN THE WOMAN. A REMARKABLE SURGICAL CASE. A Tall Yankee Yam. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

                        A unique and quite surprising oper-   ation has taken place in Greater New York, where a live frog was removed from the stomach of a woman. The history of the case is one of terrrible physical and mental suffering. It was five years ago that she began to com- plain of severe pains in her stomach. "I never knew, anything like it," she said. "It isn't a mere case of indiges- tion. I believe there is something   living in my stomach."         She ate as much as three average women would require. She did not sleep well, and often got up at night to drink milk or cider to "feed the beast," as she named the mystery. "I can feel it Tearing at my Stomach,"   she would say. It was only after eating heartily that her tormentor...

AN ENGINEERING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

AN ENGINEERING INDUSTRY.   Those requiring any engineering work done would do well to consult Messrs. Tom- linson Bros. and Co., of 373 William-street, Perth, as the class of work turned out by that firm is equal to anything imported, and they possess a complete and up-to-date plant. They can do engineering work with a cheapness and despatch that is surprising, considering the wages that is paid in this colony. They have gone to considerable   expense getting suitable machinery, and are now in a position to compete with any engineering works in Australia. One of their recent jobs was to bore out the cylin-     ders of the s.s. Gannet in Fremantle and re- lining and making pistons for same. The cylinders weighed over 10 tons each and were 3 feet in diameter by 5 feet long, and most of the work was done on board ; the first of its kind done in the colony. Messrs. Tomlinson do every kind of engineer- ing work, iron and brass castings,...

FOOTBALL AUSTRALIAN GAME. YESTERDAY'S RESULTS. EAST v. NORTH FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

Probably the largest gathering the North Fremantle Oval has ever held assembled   there yesterday afternoon to witness the   second meeting of the North Fremantle and East Fremantle teams. The ground, though a trifle soft after the recent rains and possessing the natural disadvantage of   being too small, was in good order, and the weather was all that could be desired. Hill and Acklin, who figured in last Saturday's match, stood down in favor of Heindricks and Nye, while Vincent, Fisher, Newton, and Ackland,   who played with East in their last engage- ment, were replaced by Clark, Keenan, Gallagher, and Richardson. Punctually to time, Umpire McIntyre bounced the ball in the centre, and North   rushed it into their opponents' territory.     Even play followed, in which Mitchell and     Craig showed out prominently for North and Tyson, Palmer, and Cooper for East. The...

Perth v. Subiaco. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

These teams met on the Fremantle Oval yesterday afternoon. The weather was fine and the ground in good order, but the at- tendance was poor, very little interest being taken in the match. Perth started in the aggressive and scored two goals against very little opposition, Kennedy and Edmondson being responsible. Subiaco rallied, and   with the aid of Noonen and Brady scored           two goals. The red and blacks put in       another claim for supremacy, Hussey and     Philips adding a goal each to their score.   At quarter-time the scores read— Perth, 4.3 (27 points). Subiaco, 2.2 (14 points). In the second quarter, the Perth team ran all over their opponents, scoring three goals six behinds, while Subiaco failed       to score. Edmondson and Philips (2 ) were responsible for the goals. Sco...

West Perth v. South Fremantle. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902

'The above match was played on the Association Ground yesterday, and attracted a fair attendance. Ward acted as central umpire. On the bounce the West sent the   ball down to their opponents, and South relieved in brilliant style, and for a long   time had the best of the play, and kept the ball in West's territory, Porritt, who was playing well, securing a behind. After the kick off South attached again, but Spilker   and O'Brien relieved in good style, and forwarded it to the centre, where Cross was awarded a free kick. He passed the ball on to McNamara, who kicked a wonderful goal at about 45 yards. On the bounce Kennedy   passed to Hoskins, but his kick was marked     by Douglas, who relieved in good style for   South, and assisted by Johns, the sphere   travelled into Wests territory, but Cleland,       Wildy, and Cullen, bu good play, r...

South Fremantle, you state that Shaw, of the Souths, was severely cautioned on two occasions by Umpire Wilcox. This, sit, I must contradict, for Shaw was not cautioned once during the progress of the match.     On the contrary, he was awarded five free kicks, and only one free kick was give   against him.
