TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 December 1879

To THE EDITOR SIR,-In answer to "B's" queries, I have pleasure in informing him that the best time to "rob" or "drive" the bees as he expresses   it, is 21 days after they swarm-provided there are flowers at the time for them to get a fresh supply from. And the best method of robbing from an ordinary box hive, which should stand on separate board from any other hive, is to procure another box of exactly the same size, which you leave in a room, then go to the hive which you wish to rob, with a small piece of rag which you place in the doorway of the hive and then carry it into the room, board and all, to where the empty box is; place the hive on a stand with the top side down, remove the floor board with a chisel, place the empty box on the full one, with the two open sides together, now place a weight on the top to keep them solid ; then get two pieces of deal? about l8 inches long and 1 1/2 inch wide, take one in each hand and beat the full box smartly on each side fo...

[Communicated.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 December 1879

[Communicated.} - I was glad to notice a paragraph ,in the West Australian of 2nd inst. describing the method adopted by Mr. -Chas. Hamersley for destroy- ing the poison plant by the simple use of salt, for it is to be hoped that others may follow his example, as there is but little doubt that if universally and persevéringly adopted many tracts of (at present) useless country might be rendered available for feeding sheep. It is an old known fact that salt is a des- troyer of most noxious weeds, and in ^England is largely used for keeping gravel walks and roads free from vegetable intruders. In America salt is even used for killing trees, and I have also used it for that purpose in tin's colony. A hole or two bored atjfoot into the largest tree and filled-with, salt and then plugged up will in a few months kill it to the end of the roots# I have often wondered why salt is not more generally used, especially about Perth, and on She gravel walks and roads in the public gardens and rou...

LAST NIGHT'S TELEGRAMS. ADELAIDE, t)èç. 8. The Tanjore arrived here at ten o'clock on Saturday, and left for Melbourne on Sunday morning, ' MELBOURNE, Dec. 8. ' The Eeform Bill division question has been referred to five Queen's counsel. SYDNEY, Dec. 8. A man and a woman were drowned in the harbour yesterday. LONDON, Dec. 3. Additional particulars have been received concerning an attempted assassination of the Czar at Moscow by the blowing up of a train. It appears that the escapo of the Czar was entirely attributable to the fact that the or- der of tho departure of the trains conveying His Majesty and suite, and the train convey- ing their baggage, had been reversed. But for this, the assassins would certainly have succeeded in their attempt. It has been as- certained that the evplosives were fired from the vicinity of the station, but the criminals escaped undiscovered. No clue of them has yet been obtained by the police. The neM s of the attempt created a profound sensation. Dec....

If treated with 'firmness* she immediately responds With uniform anti intelligent good behaviour.

THE MELBOURNE EXHIBITION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 December 1879

THE MELBOURNE EXHIBITION. To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR.-A circular has lately been issued by the Government for the purpose of ascertaining what persons are desirous of exhibiting at the forthcoming Melbourne exhibition. Judging from what was done for the Paris exhibition, I much fear that the colony is not likely to make any great show on the occasion in question, and that the chance of our being represented at Melbourne is but a poor one. I would, how- ever, make a suggestion which I trust will prove acceptable to the colony, and assist in en- couraging this project. ' I propose that an exhibition, industrial and loan, be held in the Town Hall, Perth, about two months before the- one in Melbourne. This would in my opinion assist the latter un- dertaking very materiaUy. I believe that the   fact of everything being shown in this colony would induce many to come forward and exhi- bit who would not take the trouble to do so for an exhibition in another colon...

Pamela said she did, but she represented to him, crossing herself and exhibiting, many signs of fear, how highly dangerous it was to open any door which it had ben her lady's pleasure to lock up, and pictured the dreadful consequences that might ensue from any crossing of her Lady's will. Raymond cut short her phrases, and or- dered her peremptorily at once to fetch the key. Tremblingly she did as she was bid, and he unlocked the closet.
