TUESDAY, MARCH 16TH. CRAOG v. FEENEY AND GIBNEY. (Part heard) [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886

TUESDAY, MARCH 16TH. 0/BA.iG v. FEENEY AND GIBNEY, (Part heard) The Attorney General addressed the jury for the defendants, and Mr. Burt for tbe plaintiff. The Chief Justice, in charging the jury, said he proposed to put certain questions to them, which he would ask them to answer categorically. The case oame before them differently from oases that were usually sub- mitted to ajury, so far as this point was con- cerned, hi most cases the jury-were asked io rind » verdict directly either for the plaintiff er for the defendant; but in thia case the judgment which would be eventually entered for the plaintiff or for the defendant would depend upon the answers which they gave to the questions that^he would pre- sently submit to them. The plaintiff sought to obtain a decree for the specific perform- ance of a contract. The specific performance of a contract meant that the person asking for it had entered into on agreement with another person, and that this other person refused to carry o...

The Wife's New Story. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886

The Wife's Sew Story. THK story, ma'am? Why really now, I haven' t much to say ; If you bad come a year ago, and then again to-day, No need of any word to tell, for your own eyes could see Just what the friends of Temperance have done for John and me. A year ago I hadn't flour to make a batch of bread, . And many a night these little ones went hungry to their bed ; Just peep into the pantry, ma'am ; there's sugar, flour aud tea, That's what tho friends of Temperance have done for John and me. The jug that holds the coffee he used to fill with beer ; No money has gone for drink for two months and a year ; He pays his debts, he's well and strong, and kind as man eau be, That's what the friends of Temperance haye done for John and me. He used to sue »k along the street feeling so mean and low, And al way s ashamed to meet the folks he used to know ; He looks the world now in the face, he steps off bold and free - That's what the friends of Temperance have done for John and me. i Why, a...

THE D.O.O.D. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886

THE D.O.O.D. Br EEV. T. DE WITT TALHAGE, D.D. j OKS of the most numerous of the great classes of civilized society is the D.O.O.D., which may be expressed as the Dependent Order of Drunkards. It comprehends per- sons of all grades and classes of society. It draws its membership from bar and pulpit, from forum and senate; but differ as they may in position, in education, in social sur- roundings, ability or culture, they are brought into one fellowship and reduced to one com- mon level. We lay before our readers the five principal degrees of the D.O.O.D. First, we see the young man, intelligent, courteous, and polite, accepting the cup at the hand of some young lady, and drinking her health in liquor that ruins his own. Well dressed, with fair promise and bright pros- pects before him, we see nothing that should hinder him from rising to the highest sta- tions, and occupying the most influential positions were it not for the cup which con- tains within itself the promise and power of...

Dairy Produce. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886

Dairy Produce. Science and mechanism hare fairly in- vaded the realm of the farmer. They hare annihilated the sickle, the scythe, and the flail and similar antiquated tools. Steam even threatens the ploughman with extinction. And now comes another cruel stroke in the banishment of that poet's dream, the dairymaid ; for factory made batter and cheese will assuredly follow in the footsteps of the cream se- parator, already in use in a hundred places in Australasia. By its aid the cream is separated from the milk while yet warm from the cow. *Ko more old fashioned dairies, with their rows of tin dishes. .N© rosy-cheeked damsels, with snow-white aprons, will hereafter do duty in skimming the. cream. Instead of these we shall hare a black-faced me- chanic, with oil-can in hand, adjusting bolts and oiling bearings. The result, probably, will be a better article at a lower price-two ends greatly to be de- sired in this colony. IL seems almost preposterous that a country like this should ha...

Success of Colonial Loans. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886

Success of Colonial Loans. The success which attended th« recent floating of a new Victorian loan and the recent loan of the Queensland Govern- ment shows that tue credit of the Austra- lian colonies stands as high as ever it did in the English money nnrket. There is no doubt that the old ignorance and dis- paragement of their colonies are fast dying out. People are becoming awake to the value of the magnificient possessions in the Southern Seas that are owned by Eng- land, and it would take a very exception- al combination of adverse circumstances nowadays, and much faultiness on the borrower's part to procure the-failure of a colonial loan. But if such success is unquestionably a tribute to colonial credit and a token of English faith in »ur soundness, unhappily it is also an illustra- tion of the deplorable dullness of times in the mother country. The difficulty of obtaining favourable investments at home is one of increasing size. Large sums are lent, when good security eau be h...

Nocturnal Nuisances. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886

Nocturnal Nuisances. A local contemporary has begun to com- plain of the nuisance caused by cackling and crowing poultry kept in our more tldckly populated centres. Unnecessary street noises are a very ancient source of complaint in English towns and cities but here there certainly is not much in that line as yet to make life in the night time a martyrdom. At the same time, there are unnecessary noises even here, both by day and night, which go to inorease the sum of human suffering especially of those of nervous temperaments, and which sooner or later will cali for municipal legislation. Poultry keeping in a densely populated centre may be a source of profit to the keepers, but it is frequently a source of protest to the neighbourhood. Chanticleer is all well enough in the paddock or po- etry, but iu the city he is too often ' a vile disturber of sleep, and, when one suffers from chronic asthma, is a provoker of maledictions. The cats we nave always with us, but more particularly B...

CO-OPERATIVE FARMING. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886

CO-OPERATIVE FARMING/. [FROM THB WEST AUSTRALIAN. 1 Ats experiment has been tried m Sydney, the like of which might possibly lead to very good results amongst ourselves. The small farmer.3 of the country districts surrounding "the capital of Kew South "Wales found that, on its way to the consumer, their produce lost much in value to themselves, through the interposition of the middleman. Their milk, their buttor, their vegetables, their fruit all their articles of small culture, they vere disposing of to the retailer at prices which left them the least possible margin of profit, and yet which gave the consumer no corresponding advant- age of cheap purchase. The pro- ducer was starving; the middleman declared that he lost almost as much as he made bj his. transactions ; while the consumer complained of the pro .~ hibitivp dearness of the actual neces- saries of life-necessaries obtainable in quantity and for * a mere song ' where grown, but suddenly acquiring a fictitious and startli...
