GOD AND MAMMON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

GOD AND MAMMON. "A Regular Attendant at Church" writes : —It is usually granted that the various churches exist principally for the purpose of raking in the coin of their adherents, but few have descended so low as did the Angli- can Church on the occasion of the funeral of the late Premier. On the morning of the day appointed for the burial, a semi- private service was held in St. George's Cathedral, and was attended by Mrs. Leake   and the intímate relations and friends of her late husband and probably about 50 of the outside public. Much to the disgust of at least one of those present, the collection bags were passed round in the usual manner —not even the most sacred of all sorrows being respected. No pay, no consolations of religion ! After this one almost wonders that a collection was not taken up at the graveside ! For such as the clergyman on that occasion, Geil, and others of that stamp the New Testament should be re-written, and should describe the man of sorr...

THE CITIZEHS CO-OPERATIVE MEAT COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

THE CITIZENS CO-OPERATIVE MEAT COMPANY.   We are pleased to hear that this company is likely to be floated and in active opera-     tion shortly. There is no denying that the time is opportune. We have known the duly-appointed manager as a man of expert knowledge and thorough capacity for some years, and if Mr. Cheesbrough, with the ex- clusive knowledge of the game be possesses, receives a little further support from the public, the Citizens Co-operative Meat Com- pany will be an accomplished fact. An instance of how fire insurance socie- ties are imposed upon is thus given :—In one of the Murchison Goldfields towns an hotel was built of galvanised iron and matchboard and lined with oilcloth— a   veritable death-trap in case of fire. Various fire offices were asked to insure the build-   ing, but all declined the risk. However, the owner persevered until he eventually got the place insured in this wise : A pro- fessio...

For the Farmers. RURAL TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

For the Farmers     RURAL TOPICS. Vegetation almost dormant. Land badly drained showing its effect on crops. Surface draining is useful in many cases if a good outlet exists. Where land lies low deep drains are essen- tial and necessary ; into these branch or sur- face drains should be directed. Stagnant water is most injurious to cul- tivated land, and should never be allowed   to remain, as the land becomes soured. Where trees have been taken out the sur- face should be made firm prior to ploughing, and if necessary should be made so by rais- ing. Land selection is going on apace. The class of applicants are persons of the right class, who from their past experience should be great acquisitions to the community. A number of selectors are not only near- ing their holdings under the conditional pur- chase clause of the Act, but are taking ad- vantage of the leasing system and so possess- ing themselves of a sufficient area to carry on a mixed s...

Poultry Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

Poultry Notes. Buckwheat is the best food for fattening poultry.   When buckwheat is freely used the flesh of fowls becomes very white and firm. Much maize gives fowl flesh a very yellow tinge, which is objected to by nearly all poul- try eaters. Hatching eggs by the aid of incubators requires knowledge and care, but with these can be made very successful. A small flock of ducks comfortably housed pays better than a larger flock all running   together and housed in one large shed.     Powdered sulphur dusted on a sitting hen and put in the nest where she is sitting about twice during the three weeks is a sure     remedy for red mites and lice, while tobacco stalks, kerosene, and other remedies so often recommended, proved a failure. Bearing up the chickens artificially is another matter, and, except in very favor- able weather, involves so much labor and attention, and is so often attended with failure, th...

JUDGING AT SHOWS. COMMONSENSE COMMENTS FOR COMMITTEES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

JUDGING AT SHOWS. COMMONSENSE COMMENTS FOR COMMITTEES. One of the principal functions of a rural society under whose auspices an agricultu- ral show is held is the appointment of com- pent judges. Too often this work does not receive that amount of consideration it should, and at times persons are selected who are incompetent. There being so many shows held at the same time of the year, it becomes a hard task to get suitable judges. Were a number of the rural societies to amalgamate, as has been suggested in these   columns, the difficulty of securing judges would be overcome, better shows would result, and the revenue from the exhibition would be greater in the aggregate than from several of the societies put together. In addition the exhibitors would be more numerous and the exhibits superior in each section of the show; and if competent persons were entrusted with the adjudica- tion there would be fewer protests and greater satisfaction would be given all round ; bes...

SELECTING AND WORKING A FARM ON MIXED LINES. A FEW HINTS TO BEGINNERS. Questions To Ask Oneself. Manuring, [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

SELECTING AND WORKING A FARM   ON MIXED LINES. A FEW HINTS TO BEGINNERS. Questions To Ask Oneself. By "Old Hand."   Manuring.   In manuring the land the heaviest dres- sing should be applied. When it is intended to sow cereal crops for ensilage, green fodder or ever for hay—then superphos- phates can be used with advantage, even up to half a ton per acre ; and nitrogenous manures, if found adapted to the soil by previous testing by small experimental plots up to four cwt. per acre. This testing shoul dbe done with all artificial manures in various combinations, and in various quantities, carefully made, and the pecuniary   results should be ascertained, prior to using any manure on a large scale for the general   crop. Mere analysis of the soil will not necessarily give a correct data. Actual test is the only reliable guide. As before mentioned, stable manure should be re- served for manuring cabbages, kail, wurzel, tu...

WEST AUSTRALIAN CRASSES THEIR ECONOMICAL USES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

WEST AUSTRALIAN GRASSES THEIR ECONOMICAL USES.   Br FRED. TURNER, F.L.S., F.R.H.S., ETC. Following are the descriptions of those illustrations which accompany this chap- ter : Andropogon eombycinus (R. Br. "Silky heads."). —This erect-growing perennial   grass, which attains a height of from 1½ to 3ft., is found all over Australia, but prin- cipally on the plains of the far interior. It generally, grows on the richest of soils, though the writer has occasionally seen it growing on stony ridges. It will withstand a phenomenal amount of dry weather in any situation where its strong wiry roots can   penetrate easily into the earth. Like many   other species of the genius Andropogon, the base of the stems on being bruised emit a Andropogan combycinus (R. Br. "Silky heads.")

BUSINESS NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

BUSINESS NOTICES. For taste, comfort and cleanliness, the Cafe Cecil, near Bon Marche, Hay-street, stands prominent, and as Mrs. Ebbott, the proprietress, personally supervises the menu a dainty and well-served meal is always to be procured there. Finding that the spacious and brilliantly-lighted ball is in great de-   mand for private suppers, dinners and smoke socials, Mrs. Ebbott has been compelled to discontinue her late public suppers. Secre- taries of clubs and societies should make early application when the use oí the hall is desired. Our readers will no doubt have noticed an advertisement in this paper headed "You've been wrong." This novel heading emanates from Mr. G. D. Upjohn, the well-known jeweller, of 423 Wellington street, opposite the Railway Station, and refers to the fact that you can get a good timekeeper for £1. If you have purchased one "You've been right," as these handy little watches have given entire satisfaction, and although Mr. Upjohn has so...

GREENBUSHES GANG. THE LINEN AT WASH. THE MINING LEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

GREENBUSHES GANG. THE LINEN AT WASH. H. C. Clarth writes:—I noticed in your last issue a letter from an anony- mous correspondent at Greenbushes, reflecting upon the action of Mr. A. E. Morgans in applying for certain ground, which was at one time held by me, but long since abandoned. If the writer had signed his name it would not have been necessary to for me to trouble you with any reply. "X-Ray" would be   better employed in exposing the nefar- ious transactions of a certain clique, about the "faking" of whose books he should know something; as well as their fleecing of confiding Adelaide in- vestors, and "getting at" the poor tin miners of this field.     The Days of this Gang are now rapidly drawing to a close, and the letter written for them by their despicable, drunken tool is only an attempt to bespatter with mud honest people in a last expiring kick. The public may look forward to interesting developments in connection with the &am...

JUSTICE TO JANDAKOT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

JUSTICE TO JANDAKOT.   "Farmer" writes:—After reading your just and able article on the above in your Jonrnal, every fair thinking person cannot but admire your paper for the great interest you always take in the welfare of the whole country and the great trouble you always go to to do justice to the public at large; and how you are at the same time always ready to expose the tricky sharpers and evils doers, which, without any doubt, you have plainly shown in the map published in your supplement of the same issue. Any person that has taken the trouble to look at the map must admit to your remarks (a district doomed to demoniac devices), but I think you ought to have went one better, and said to a thieving, con- niving lot of swindlers who are always prepared to sacrifice the country's interests for their own private concern. By the different routes shown in your map how it is possible for Mr. J. J. Holmes, the supposed straight-goer, or any of the other land Sharks or M...

RAILWAY EIGHT HOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

"Inquirer" writes:—Eight hours a   day was passed by Parliament, and the employees were told by the new Com-   missioner of Railways, Mr. George,   "That the eight hours would extend to   all employees except those at inland stations where only two trains a day   ran." What do we find? A circular has been issued that 48 hours per week constitute a week's work for   guards, assistant guards, signalmen, shunters (whose duties are continuous), lumpers and others of the wages staff     where the work is laborious and con-   tinuous, while 54 hours constitute a   week's work for passenger porters, ticket collectors, general porters, and car conductors. Watchmen and car- takers, etc., remain the same as they were prior to July 1. Further, night officers at suburban stations must be worked from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., and take up duty in signal cabin from 11 p.m. inst...

FOOTBALL AUSTRALIAN GAME. YESTERDAY'S RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

Splendid weather favored the opening matches of the third round for the W.A.F.A. premiership, which were played yesterday. The Perth ground being used by the lacrosse players, no match was played in the metropolis. As a consequence both the Perth and West Perth clubs had large fol- lowings for their matches at the Port. Perth visited North Fremanle, where they met the local champions. North have so far lost only one match, and their chance for the premiership is undoubtedly a good one. The North Ovalm about which so   much has been written, was found to be in good order, except on the pavilion side, where the local municipal council has re- cently been doing a little top dressing. The visitors found great difficulty in bouncing the ball in this particular locality, but the Norths made no attempt at running with the ball on this particular wing, but played to greater purpose by long points. Both teams were well represented, Purling (Perth) and Wakeley (North Fremantle) b...

PERTH V. WEST PERTH.   For some time the members of the West Perth Club have, thanks to the generous support of Mr. Alec Gordon, been enabled to meet at rooms set apart for their con- venience. There games of a varied char- acter have been provided and some very en- joyable evenings have been spent. Yester- day a challenge for a crib tournament was issued by the West Perth Football Club to the Perth Football Club and the challenge was promptly accepted.

LATE SPORTING. MELBOURNE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

MELBOURNE NOTES.   The tracks have been quiet this week owing to the extraordinary fogs in the morning, which made fast work dangerous. Lamond has not been on the track this week, but he is not very bad, and is ex- pected soon to be at work again. Special attention has been paid this week to that death-trap at Flemington, the second last steeplechase jump, known as the "cathe- dral." Last Saturday this obstacle brought   down Kaimate, Royal Mail, and Mensura-   tion. More horses have been killed here   than at all the other jumps put together.   It is at a very awkward angle, and there is some talk about removing it. Emms gave a magnificent exhibition of jumping in the Footscray Steeplechase, and this gelding of Miller's will probably supply the next year's Grand National Steeplchase favorite. The Double Galla Hurdle was worth £484 to Albert Miller, who therefore got back the purchase money at the first time of asking....

SYDNEY [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

SYDNEY ITEMS. Abbington's easy victory at Canterbury Park has made him first favorite for the Epsom Handicap. He is not wound up yet, so Fielder should be able to keep him cherry ripe till the mile race is run. A horse who is striding along in fine style, and looks par-   ticularly well, is Ibex, and with him at his best with only 8.12 on his back one need not look further for the winner of the Epsom. The three-year-old, Caravel, is doing nicely,   and so is Skein Dhu in Tom Payton's stable. Old Ferryman is in good nick, and may be dangerous. Sir Leonard, Patronage, the   Westralian, Warrior II, Blue Metal and   Persian are the favorite picks for the second leg in the big Sydney double. Warrior's preparation is not being hurried, and his   track work would suggest that he is after one of the two big spring handicaps in Vic- toria rather than the Metropolitan. The committee of the W.A.T.C. were   not unanim...

THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. The performance at the Theatre Royal during the past week by Harry Rickard's talented company have attracted crowded audiences, the principal draw being the famous athlete, Sandow. The marvellous feats of strength performed by this modern Hercules met with unbounded admiration. The lifting of the 242lbs. bar bell with the left hand from floor to arm's length overhead seems to him a perfectly easy matter; nor did there seem to be any exertion in lifting a man with his straightened leg. The Roman column exercises were equally wonderful, and brought into play physical power which, before being seen, would be deemed to be impossible. The culminiating act and the I tomh of Hercules almost caoeed one to tomb of Hercules almost caused one to shiver in anticipation of the result if he should by any means fail, but he always came out of these trials of strength as if they were a mere nothing to him. He is un- doubtedly a wonder, and our readers will miss an object ...

"SHERLOCK HOLMES." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902

"SHERLOCK HOLMES."   According to the American critics no hero of a book has been so completely and fas-   cinatingly realised as the greatest detective of fiction has in Mr. Gillet's incarnation of   him, and this is the next attraction Mr. J.   C. Williamson has arranged for our local theatre-goers, which will be presented on Saturday evening next, July 26, and the fact that Perth is to have the first oppor- tunity of witnessing this great play is a compliment that speaks well for the future of the State as regards a fine field for Mr.   J. C. Williamson's attractions, which, by the way, have had a most successful time, and this next generation is considered by Mr. Williamson the most important he has sent West. The company is a most power-   ful one, and each lady and gentleman have been specially selected for their respective characters, and in almost every case the company will make their first appear...
