NICOL BAY. No. 11. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

NICOL BAY. No. II. By Bucolic. Upon the return of Mr. Padbury from the North West with encouraging accounts of the country and the successful landing of his first shipment of stock, the Tien Tain was chartered by the late Mr. John Wel- lard, who resolved to try his fortunes in the new country. He selected as manager Mr. W. S. Hall, who had travelled over the couutry with Gregory's expedition, and taking a useful staff et station hands he sailed with a cargo of sheep, cattle and horses, most of which were successfully landed at Butcher's Inlet in due course. Mr. Hill, without delay, moved his stock up to the Harding where he left most of his party whilst ne returned to the land- ing with one hand (McCourt) for stores. Natives had been met with during the landing who were apparently most friendly but Mr. Hall with commendable prudence did not feel justified in going to sleep without setting a night watch. But he justly reasoned that for two men who had been at work ali day-the night w...

MOTHER'S BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

MOTHER'S BOY. There is nothing in this world so full of mischief, so comical, so merry, so hard to manage as a schoolboy. Half-a-dozen girls are nothing to that one youngster, in a blue suit, whom you see coming along the street yonder. It requires so much of his mother's enerby to koop him in order that she has but little left for any. thing else in this world. The girls come up themselves, and bring their little sisters up-crimp their hair, mend their stockings, button their jackets, and know what is proper and what is incorrect while they look like babies. But that boy. Where does does he not climb? Up trees, up tele- graph poles, up the ladder to the roof, up the chimney if he can. Ever since his first visit to the circus he has been bent on learning the " flying trapeze," and is trying to make a catapult with which his little brother may fire him over the garden wall. Remonstrance and advice and awful warnings are of no avail with him. He doubts the intellectual power of women-...

THURSDAY, MARCH 11. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

THURSDAY, MARCH 11. The case for the plaintiff was continued The Chief Justice on taking his seat, addres- sing the Attorney General, said : I have been looking at the Stamp Act with reference to that document to which you drew my atten- tion yesterday1, as not being sufficiently stamped, and I see that had my attention been drawn to it at any time before it was admitted in evidence, it would have been in my power to admit it, subject to a fine vary- ing according to the time that elapsed since its execution. I am sorry my attention was not drawn to it at the time-it escaped the observation of the Registrar-but it is now in evidence, and I cannot reject it. The only course is for the authorities to recover the fine, as they may, according to the provisions of the Aet. It is out of my power now to do anything in the matter, but had I known it in time I should have admitted the document upon payment of the fine due upon it.

THE AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN FOR 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

THE AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN FOR 1886. -? After four visits, at regular intervals of a couple of years, the reappearance among us of a team of Australian cricketers next year was looked up- on (says The Field) as almost a cer- tain occurrence in the natural course of events. Siuce Mr. Gregory came over with his followers in 1678, and met with a Buccess which must Lava astonished them all, the colonial elevens that have come to England have steadily increased the reputation of Australian cricketers, and have on each occasion been so well repaid financially, that it was hard to be- lieve that at last the biennial visit was to bo abandoned. That.it was likely to be waa no doubt the general opinion at Lord's last week, when the county repra . f i " i. sentativea met to arrange the fixtures for next year ; for, though uo decision had boen arrived at in Australia, so small waa the chance of their coming over consider- ed, that the matches for the season wera fixed without considering their claim...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN EXHIBITION. THE CLOSING OF THE EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

1HE WES1ERN AUSTRALIAN EXHIBITION. --> THE CLOSING OF THE EX- HIBITION. After a measure of success which ap- pears to have exceeded its promoters' most sanguine anticipations, the exhibition was closed on Thursday evening last, by the Mayor of Perth. The fact of that being the last night, and also the very good programme advertised for the concert, which was to precede the i closing ceremony, drew a large and fashionable assemblage to the hall. By a rough calculation, it was estimatea that quite 500 persons were present during the evening, a number which, when the space occupied by the exhibits is taken into ac- count, may be regarded as highly satis- factory. The heat was intense. Had there been but a dozen persons present, the number of gas jets and kerosene lamps burning would bave rendered the atmosphere most uncomfortably warm. With the addition of 500 human beings packed againßt the stage, it was little short of unendurable, and increased the difficulties with which singers...

Our Novel. A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARIS. "A stern chase is a long chase" THE SECOND PART. CHAPTER V. SUSPENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 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 V. SUSPENSE. The directness of Lilias's question, its realisation of the thing which he had feared and endeavoured to avert, tried even Dr. Rosslyn's trained com- posure. The intelligent suffering, comprehending and accounting for itself—which had replaced the vague seeking and disturbance which he had been watching for so long, and now manifested itself in the worn face of Lilias, and spoke in her broken tones —was grievous to him. His first im- pulse was an angry one, but he mas- tered it, remembering that the nurse was blameless in the matter. The unintentional harm had been done ; the evil must be met ; the question must be answered. He answered it: "No, my dear; of course not What can have put such a notion into your head ? " He gently laid her back on the sofa-cushions, and placed his cool hand on her forehead. The nurse left the room. " How long hare I been ii...

"Bight Smart of a Doctor." [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886

"Bight Smart of ft Doctor." Much suffering is often felt in the newly and thinly populated districts of the Western States of America because of the lack of proper medical attendance in times of severe illness. A doctor may not be nearer than ten or fifteen miles, and on his late arrival may turn out to be a doctor in name only. A gentleman travelling on horseback in the Rocky Mountains suddenly became very ill, and gives the following amusing account of his experience with a " right smart of a doctor" brought from a mining camp twenty eight miles distant : " It was no laughing matter at the time," said the traveller. " I was suffering intense- ly, and my misery was at its height when the doctor came. " 'AVhat ails yo?' was the doctor's first question. " ' Oh, I don't know,' I said. " ' Whereabouts do you hurt wuss ?' " ' All over ?' I said, making what I know must have been a frightful grimace. " ' All over ?' queried the long, lank, shab- by doctor, peering at me through his glass...

A Good Enough Story. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886

A Good Enough Story. j The story is told by John C. Christian, a lawyer of Chicago, who transacted the major portion of Mr. Honore's legal business dar- ing the dark days of 1873. Mr. Christian came into some notoriety at the Prohibition convention at Pittsburgh last year by nomi- nating John Peter St. John for the Presi. dency. The story as related is about as fol- lows : Prior to the panic of 1873 Mr. Honore held about §9,000,000 or $10,000,000 of Chicago property, OH which he owed about $5,000,000, and no man in Chicago had better credit. He carried a bank account at St. Louis, where he bad the confidence of wealthy capi- talists. During the squeeze of 1874, and near the first of the year, he was in St. Louis, and was in conversation with the President of the bank where he did business. "Mr. Honore," said the banker, "your account is overdrawn here some $2,500, and, as it is near the first of the year, we would be exceedingly obliged if yon would balance the same today.'* " It is...

gPOUTlNIi GOSSIP (BY VINDEX.) The sport of yatching is certainly look- ing up when wa are able to record a match for a stake of £15 and another for £20 aside The race between the Maori and the Eunice in the recentscoack race was as fiue a struggle as any one need wish to witness. The Eunice led for fully three parts of the course, but was outpaced in the free run from Dalkeith to the winning post. Still, only about twenty yards separated the two boats at the finish. Not sat iafied with their defeat, the crew of the Eunice challenged tho Maori fur another race fur £15 aside. The challenge was taken up and on Tues- day last the race came off. In the earlier part of the race the pair were pretty evenly matched, but it was at times scarcely apparent how they stood until they met in midstream, as they were run- ning on opposite tacka. The Eunice ob- tained on« or two good slants, while the Maori waa twice taken almost completely ; aback by a change of breeze and, she also was not so well...
