WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. PERTH WHOLESALEPRICES CURRENT. Perth, March 19, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
I WEEKLY COMMERCIAL BEPORT. PEBTH WHOLESALE PEKES CURRENT. ' Perth, March 19, 1886. An uneventful week has to be recorded I In the face of the heavy stocks of mercban ! dise which are impending over the market, and which to a large extent will be auction- ed " without reserve," no early recovery in the prices of imported goods is probable. For cereals tho outlook is moro hopeful, as títere is little fear of any imports taking place while rates in the Eastern Colonies maintain their present level. The present price of Adelaide superflue flour, best brands, is nearly £i per ton above that of our local manufacture. This ac- curately shows the relative estimate of the home-made and the imported article. Such a discrepancy is no way creditable to «ur own millers, and we trust that they will not for muon longer be content to occupy such a much lower level than their South Australian competitors. i Bran bags are scarce. Currants are want- ed. Bran in is very short supply. Oats are not plen...
Hygiene in Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
Hygiene In Schools. Mr. K. W. Goergs, Principal of Riviere College, Woolham, Sydney, lias ¡ published in a recent number of the Australasian Medical Gazette, a piper ' dealing with the two greatly neglected subject of hygiene in schools. ? And as many of hts remarks are applicable to the school system in this colony, we offer them in a condensed form to our readers. Mr. Goergs is of opinion that the hours at school are too long. Not so much, how- ever, on account of the mootai pressai» -as on account of the confinement in an impure atmosphère. But "when over- pressure in schools finds in carbonic acid fps, and in improper and insufficient bod, allies and friends, it becomes a grave reality. Especially during seasons wlien .infectious diseases prevail the massing together of improperly and ill-fed children vin oadly ventilated rooms is full of peril." Up to the present time the evil of over- crowding in schools has not made itself remarkably apparent, although'in some of the country ...
Co-operation amongst Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
Co-operation amongst Farmers. The Weet Australian publishes an in- teresting article on the necessity of co- operation araongetour f arme»?, m refer- ence to the experiment made lately by some New South Walesfarmers in Sydney». about which some account has beenyfiready given in our own columns, ¿io doubt one of the great- disadvantages under j which producers in thiB colony have al I ways laboured is that,, though there existo iu their class à community of interest, they have very seldom worked to- gether in unions or bodies for mutual protection and advancement. They have, . it is true, formed agricultural societies io nearly all the districts where euch insti- tutions could be carried on, Bat the work done by these societies ^as been more in the one direction pf holding an- nual shows, at which a certain amount o£ ' prise-money is distributed, thin with the object of improving the position of mem- bers in togara to their dealings with the Purchasers of stock and produce.

The Western Mail. SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 1886. THE TEMPERANCE ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
%\t »sten Pail SATURDAY, MASCH 20, 1886. THE TEMPERANCE ORDERS. -4 IN the course of the present week the independent Order of Rechabite celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of their introduction into the colony. As a matter ot' tact ne beliere that the celebration of that event comes somewhat late in the day, the true birthday of the Order in Western Australia having taking place earlier in the year, Spite of the absence of the auspices of -the precise natal day, the proceedings ou last Wednesday were as successful as any of the brotherhood could desire. Nor did the transactions of the following duy when the officers and members as sembled in annual meeting to report on, the position of the body and dis- cuss the arrangements for the ensuing twelvemonth, tend in any way to cast a «loud over the prosperous appear« ance and prospects of the organisa- tion. A growth in members, funds and vitality, was for the most pan reported. In short the Order may be pronounced to have attained an e...
The Lightning, a Negro, and a Stump. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
The Lightning, a Negro, and a Stump. A negro was at work on the plantation of Mr. H. A. Ledbetter, over in the Eighth District of Baker, ploughing, when a thunder cloud came up. He was near a stump, when a lightning bolt descended, striking the negro at the back of the head, peeling the skin off down his spinal column until it reached the hips, where it made an abrupt turn around bis stomach and then jumped to the stump j close at hand, which it tore from its roots I and shivered to fragments. The negro, when found, was almost lifeless, but be subsequently revived and was ploughing again in three days after the occurrence. This goes to show that a negro is tougher than a stump.
A Chicago Girl. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
A Chicago Girl. A Chicagoan visiting in Boston waxes in- dignant at the article regarding Chicago girls, which appeared in an Eastern journal. The article charges that Chicago girls are in the habit of using such expressions as "getting -left," " rustled around," "went back on him," *' corraled her handkerchief," "in the swim," *' made the riffle," and " put in his beat licks." TChe article referred to was shown to her and she became exceedingly indignant, observ- ing : " That is a Zsh story. The fellow who wrote that is way off his base." " You think, then, that there is no truth in the assertion _ that Chicago girls are addicted to slang P" ** Well, now, hold on. I don't mean exactly that. They may be some of them who sling «lang, but I never work the slang racket my- self. I suppose some of the girls do use «long sometimce, but this child is not one of ] them-now yon hear my bazoo ?" " What is your opinion of Boston belles, compared to those of Chicago ?" queried the scribe. " I ...

, She Has the Last Word. " Oh, dear ! " exclaimed Mrs. F., after vain, ly endeavouring to pour hot irater ont of the empty teakettle, " how did I forget to fill it, I wonder P I'm getting to be a perfect sim picton. I wish I did have a little common ?ense." " But, my dear," interrupted Fogg, " sup- pose you had. Do you think you'd know -what to do with it ? " " Do with it : " echoed Mrs. F. ; " many things. I might want to be married again, you know, and it might save me from mak- ing a fool of myself a second time,"
A Square Meal. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
A Square Heal. He heard several old miners, who had for : many years been living a rough frontier life, discussing what they would do when they bad " made their piles" and could return j with riches " to the States." j " Well," said one greasy old veteran, " I know what Til do. I'll go as straight as the cars 'll take me to New York, and when I get thare I'll make a bee line for Pelmomco's and I'll get the blankedly-blankedest dinner that money can buy. I don't care if it cost me §50, I'll have it." "Now, what do you think you would order," queried Fred, with some curiosity, *' if you were to go into Delmonico's for a fifty-dollar dinner ? " " Well, I dunno ; but I guess I'd have arome ham and eggs-yes, I would ; I'd have liam and eggs.' " ,

Cuss Words. She was wading* aoross the mud on Wood- ward Avenue when a butcher cart came along and splashed her from bonnet to shoes. A pedestrian who witnessed the accident pulled out his handkerchief and said: "Beg pardon, bnt let me wipe some of it off." "Oh!" she replied; "but never mind the mud. Ti you feel it a duty to do something in the case, please mention some of the leading cuss-words now in use!"

WORKING A WIDOW. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
WOBKING A WIDOW. Some weeks ago a widow moved into Detroit from a town in tbs west- ern part or the State. She brought with her a bull-dog, wbich showed game in every .movement, and it was not long before every butcher and sport in the neighbourhood wanted to. buy that dog. The widow wouldn't sell at no price. The next thing to buying the dog was to get up a fight between him and another canine of bloodthirsty appearance, but the widow wouldn't hear to this. " I want you to understand," she indignantly replied, " that I am a respectable woman and give no encouragement to such things." Still, there were one or two men who did not despair. They began to conspire, and as a result they led a fighting dog into a barn near the widow's house. The other day one of them paid a call at the house and said : "In course we knows how you feels about this dog-fighting. We feels the same, but there's a woman across the ally who owns a dog which she brags on." " She can't be no lady," was the retort...
INDIAN AND COLONIAL EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
INDIAN AND COLONIAL EXHIBI HON. -? THE progress, writes the European Mail, which has been made at the Colonial and Indian Exhibition since the beginning of the year is certainly remarkable. _ Hun- dreds bf workmen are engaged daily, and several of tbe courts are already begin- ning to assume quite an attractive ap- pearance. We have already reported the arrival of about 230 packages ot ex- hibits by the Chutan, from Sydney, and the Iberia has just brought over another 250 packages, so that there will be no difficulty, as soon as the decorations are completed, in getting the New South Wales Court into something like order. Mr. Qr. C. Levey, it is understood, will act under Sir Saul Samuel, the Agent General tor New South Wales, and Sir Daniel Cooper, who have been appoint- ed executive commissioners for Kew South Wales, until the arrival of Sir Alexander Stuart in London. Queens land is also well to the front with due preparations for the great display. Above 300 cases have already a...
PARNELL'S PEDIGREE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
PARNELL'S PEDIGREE. -« THE Pall Mall Gazette publishes a pedi- gree of Mr. Parnell " which may be relied! on." From this it appears that the great Irish leader has little if any Irish blood5 in his veins-Celtic Irish that is to say- 1 but on the other hand is abundantly sup- j * plied with very ' blue ' English blood in- ' deed. The pedigree traces his descent - from Earl Warwick ' the king maker ' of* the 15th century through George, Duke of Clarence, Sir Richard Pole, the 2nd Lord Huntingdon, the 1st Lord Compton,, the 4th Lord Mordaunt, the let Earl of Peterborough, Lord Mordaunt of Avalon,. James Hamilton of Bangor, Michael. Ward, two Sir John Parnells, William Parnell and Johu Henry Parnell* Amongst his female ancestry was Mar- garet Plantagenet, Countess of Salisbury,, who was beheaded in 1541.
EARLY MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
EARLY MUSIC. The earliest orchestras sprang ont of a&lt; natural tendency on the part of those who could and would sing, to Beleot an accom- panying instrument as closely allied as pos- sible to the compass, and fitted to the qual- ? ity of the voice it was to accompany. Thus were our modern orchestras arrived at. But I am not going to lay down snch conditional terms. Our home orchestra is not to be. fettered in any such way ; its materials are to bear ho relation whatever to the vocal qualities of those are to perform upon the respective instruments ; nor need these ma- terials be of any particular cante. Talent,, happily, is blind here, and music especially has the merit of distributing her favours in. a most impartial manner among both rich and poor. Nor need ses be a matter of moment in much that will be possible to our orchestra. Hitherto it has lacked some dis- tinctive features. A clarionet player of good', calibre, however, here presents himself, and is accepted. A m...
