MAYOR'S BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 19 May 1906

MAYOR'S BALL. I - ^ i A function which will long be pleasantly remembered by those who had the good fortune to be present took place on Tues day evening, when the Mayor and Mayoress entertained over 100 guests at a ball given in honour of the coming of age of their son,. Mr. G. Baston, jnn. The Mayor and Mayoress believe in thoroughness in all things, and to secure the comfort of their many guests they had engaged both the Jubilee and Masonic Halls, the former being used for dancing and the latter as a 6upper room. On emerging from the cloak room at the former ball and passing on to the fctage the guests were received by Mr. and Mrs. Baston, the Mayoress being attired in a most becoming dress of Balmond pink satin, the bodice being trimmed with jet andeequins. Miss Boston's dress was of soft white silk, trimmed with lace; and she wore white chrysanthemums n her hair. The somewhat sombre-looking hall had been transformed for tbe occasion almost beyond recognition. The large stage was...

VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, May 14. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 19 May 1906

VICTORIA. | MELBOBBNE, May 14. | A "pleasant Sunday afternoon" was held in Wesley Church, Lonsdale street, yesterday. It was -advertised to be a demonstration against Mr. Wren, Mr. Dawson, prize fights, and tote shops. As Mr. Jadkius rose to speak Mr. Dawson asked to be allowed to reply to him. The chairman said that was no place and the day was un suitable for an address of the kind Mr. Dawson would deliver. Mr. Daw son then left the church. At the con clusion of the address a motion was carried protesting against the recent boxing match in the Exhibition Build ings and urging the Government to take action against tote shops.

CORRESPONDENCE. WHY CAMELS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO COME INTO CARNARNON. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 19 May 1906

CORRESPONDENCE. ? WHY CAMELS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO COME INTO CARNARNON. To.THE EDITOR Sib,,-As the present dry season should have demonstrated to anyone with an atom j of common sense the absolute necessity for employing camel teams for the carriage of ! goods to the back country, I beg to bring under the notice of the public generally the disadvantages those who have to em ploy camels labour under. For instance, at the present time I have loading, which I want to go to Baugemall j L can get no horse or bullock teams to take it at any price (I have been similarly placed in & good season); the camel teams are quite willing to take it. but by the by-laws of that wise body, the Municipal Council of Carnarvon, the camels are not allowed to come nearer Carnarvon than the cainel reserve, which is three miles away. I may here state that when the above decision was come to by that august body, the council were partly composed of those making a living out of horse teams, there fore th...

The 0.axttftxn ffitmts. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1906. THE FORTHCOMING ELECTION. In the course of bis speech last week Mr. Butcher, made an appeal to the electors to vote for the can didate whom they thought would work with him for. the best interests of the North. He went on to say that with the exception of the former member for Kimberly (Mr. Connor) he had not had the assistance he should have had from the various members representing Northern elec torates, and maintained that with support from them he conld do much more to advance the claims of the North to proper recognition in Parlia ment. Mr. Batcher's remarks natur ally lead to the question, with whom lies the blame for the disunion ? Possibly there have been faults on all sides, and a disposition to allow personal or purely parochial matters to block an understanding being arrived at with regard to questions affecting the welfare of the North as a whole. Mr. Butcher's remarks serve the purpose o...

SUICIDE, NOT MURDER. LONDON, May 12. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 19 May 1906

SUICIDE, NOT MURDER. LONDON, May 12. | A. different theory is being enter tained regarding the death of Mr. Charles Speir, a leading member of the Standard Oil Trust. The first report, received several days ago, was to the effect that Speir was shot throcgh the heart by a burglar in his (Speir's) home at Staten Island, New York. The tragedy was stated to have been committed in the presence of Speir's wife. The discovery of extensive defalcations on the part of Speir has occasioned the belief that he committed suicide, and that the burglary was an arranged plan to divert suspicion.

WOOL POINTERS. (In the Pastoralists' Review.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 19 May 1906

WOOL POINTERS. ? BY CAMDEN. (In the Pastoralists' Review.) Growers and buyers of wool have many interests in common, and the observation of apparently small details in regard to the care and get-up of fleeces is mutually advantageous. For instance, harm may be done to a clip by tbe use of crude and deleter ious branding fluids, which, while making very destructive and lasting marks, will not come out in the scour. There are marking fluids properly com pounded which withstand the effects of weather till shearing, and at the same time come out easily in the scour. So that if the owner is care ful in the choice of marking fluid, the critical taste of the buyer will ap preciate it. Then, again, a decided advantage is secured by the grower who cratches his sheep late in. the season, as he avoids loss caused by heavy dags and stained locks at shearing time. Daring late years, owing to the ravages of the blowfly, cratching has become, a more general practice^. the wisdom, appearing in clea...
