MONKEYS THAT PLAY FOOT BALL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 14 August 1898

MONKEYS THAT PLAY FOOT BALL. . Travellers in South America have noted the fact that where monkeys con- gregate in large-numbers they also in- dulge in games, of a certain kind. Two of these games seem to resemble cricket and football. The cricket is of a primitive order. About a dozen monkeys stand in a circle or whatever is akin to the simian , idea I of a circle. Two of them advance from different extremities of the circle, and ¡ stop about fifteen yards apart .facing ¡each other. Tbe monkey at the i southern end of the circle has a cocoanut in his hand ; he is the bowler.' . The monkey at the other end does not, as you might suppose, wield a full-cane bat ; his business is to dodge the cocoa- nut which the bowler aims at his head. The delivery of the ball is something after the Richardsonian style, tremen- dously fast, full-pitched, and fraught with dire results if it "touches the spot." When it does happen to touch the spot-that "is, any part of the mon- key's body-that- monkey ...

THE CROWDED STREET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

THE CROWDED STREET. Let me more slowly through the street, Filled with ait ever-shifting train, Amid the sound of steps that beat The) mmmuring walks like autumn rain. 1 How fast the flitting figures come! The mild, the fierce, the stony face ; Some bright with thoughtless smiles, and some Where secret tears have left fheir trace. They pass-to toiL to strife, to rest j To halls in which the feast is spread ; To chambers where the funeral guest In silence sits beside the dead. And some to happy homes repair, Where children, pressing cheek to cheekj With mute caresses shall declare The tenderness they cannot speak. And some who walk in calmness here, Shall shudder as they reach the door Where one who made their dwelling dear, Its flower, its light, is seen no more. Each, where his tasks or pleasures call, They pass, and heed each other not. There is who heeds, who holds them all, In His large love and boundless thought. These struggling tides of life, that seem In wayward, aimless cou...

WHAT IS A "PHAGOCYTE?" [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

WEAT IS A ** PHAGOCYTE ?" The ingenious gentleman who wrote a treatise on "Snakes in Ireland" might find a subject ready to his pen if he were to try his hand on microbes in healthy blood! Every schoolboy knows that there are no snakes in Ireland, but it is not a matter of common knowledge to the man in the street that there are in fact no microbes of any sort to be found in healthy blood. Germs, however, do find their way in- to the blood, in disease they frequently swarm, but nature has provided a set of organisms possessing Ufe to some ex- tent independent of the general fife of the body, whose function it is to remove any undesirable intruders. These are the white corpuscles of the blood, known as phagocytes. In the event of any germs finding their way into the blood a unmber of these phagocytes at once proceeded to the spot and endeavor to eat and digest them. Should the- attempt be successful, as it usually is, all goes welL But it occasionally happens that the germ is more th...

CORRESPONDENCE. RETRENCHMENT IN THE PUBLIC SERVICE. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

C OREESPONDENCE. RETRENCHMENT IN THE PUBLIC SERVICE. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Seeing that retrenchment is ne- cessary on account of the financial posi- tion of the colony, is it being carried out as it should be? I think not. As a late supervisor who is leaving the colony I can say, and an inquiry would prove it, that with the exception of .the chief inspector of works no practical man is to be found till the supervisors be come to, either in the construction branch of the department or the main- tenance. Those men receive £150 or £160 per year, but the dead-head por- tion of the service get from £250 to £700 ; they also get £1 to £1 5s. per day for travelling allowance and no questions asktt] ; the supervisor on the other hand is allowed 10s. 6<L per day travelling allowance, but must produce vouchers for every penny. A first-class pass is given in one case and a second class one in the other. A plan of a contract is altered so often that you would hardly know the original ...

A GREAT LOCAL INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

A GREAT LOCAL INDUSTRY. In the next issue of die "Sunday j Times" (August 28) will appear a full and complete description of the large tobacco factory owned and conducted by Messrs. Robert Dixson and Co. at Fre- mantle. The article, which will be spe- cially written, will prove a revelation to our readers, as but few are aware of the magnitude of the tobacco and cigarette trade conducted by Messrs. Dixson, of the size and completeness of their extensive works. RA well-Known society lady "was crav- ing at Ascot during race week a couple of years ago. The lady was unusually stout. On the first morning of her visit a hip-bath was provided for her ase, but when she sat down therein all the water over-flowed, and a vacuum was created between the lady and the bath. Unable to extricate herself, the lady, carrying the bath on her back, snail-wise, crawled to the bell and summoned assis- tance. The combined efforts of several maids,' some pulling at the bath and some at the lady, failed to s...

CONCERNING WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

CONCERNING WOMEN. (By Cordelia.) Rumor hath it that one of the salient features which, did not receive due pro- minence at the hands of the finished scribes who "do" these things for the "great daily" newspapers of Perth was the amazing thirst that prevailed at a recent high-class ball Sp great, in- deed, was this jimtwit drought that bj twelve o'clock not a drop of liquid could be found on the premises. A man rrhrj is considered quite as truthful as nía fellows told me that he would have given 5s. for a bottle of lemonade-he would even have drank Perth water, microbes and all ; but such, a thing was nowhere to be found. Where, where was that wise and earnest body of workers, the W.C.T.U., at that moment I And will they find, through all tibe com- ing years, such, an opportunity for point- ing out the great and glorious beauties of temperance J * * * * Perhaps the following par scarcely be- longs by right to my column.

THE PRISON SYSTEM AND THE "WEST AUSTRALIAN." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

THE PRISON SYSTEM AND TH! " WEST AUSTRALIAN." ! "Le Gronduer," in the "Geraldton Express," writes : The ponderous "Western Mail' pub- lishes and article headed 'In Fremantle Gaol,' written by a late inmate of that delectable establishment. It bears every evidence of being a 'faked' affair, written with an object-which is not hard to. discover. The writer was only an in- significant drunk doing a week. Bis description of the gaol gives one the idea of a most delightfully comfortable home, which as a retreat must be in- finitely preferable to the Hotel Dieu of Mount Eliza. And this was doubtless what the author intended, in view of the fact that tile select committee on penal establishments is about to commence investigation. During his residence at the sea-side sanitorium (so he calls it), the only thing he could find fault with was the soup! This wasn't exactly .turtle, or even mulbgatawn. But a 'short sentence' fellow like this, can't possibly be held to have had any proper experie...

THE MINISTER OF LANDS AND THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

THE MINISTER OF LANDS AND THE CABINET. ''Bungarra," -writing to the "Gerald- ton Express," observes: "Is there a quarrel between the Pre- mier and the Commissioner of Crown Lands! So far we have had a report and a contradiction, merely a matter of cause and effect, for of all men in the world who could afford to quarrel with Mr. Throssell the Premier is the last. He stands out alone as the one respected and progressive unit in a Ministry of which the guiding forces are ignorance, despotism, and incompetence, a Go- vernment in which brute force takes the place of argument, the most rabid pro- vincialism supplants statesmanship and profligate expenditure of public moneys does duty for national nuance. Both sides of the House want Throssell just where he is. He has come to stay. When John Forrest is remembered merely as a lingering survival of me- diaeval feudalism, the name of Throssell will be writ large on the pages of Aus- tralian history as a benefactor of his race and the donor t...

THE TYPOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY VERSUS MYSELF. AN OPEN LETTER. To the Public of Perth and the Gold- fields, It is with considerable reluctance that I find myself again obliged to address the public on the subject of the alleged grievances of certain compositors against myself. The amount of publicity which has already been given has ensured a fair general knowledge of the history of the question, which, however, may be usefully summarised as follows: (1) Representatives of the Trades and Labor Council and the Typographical Society waited upon me to express their disapprobaiion of my having caused "The Sunday Times" to be printed at an office where "sweating" was carried on. (2) I repled, stating that, so far as I could discover, no such sweating was taking place. (3) Mr. Lovekin, managing director cf the "Morning Herald," also replied, and challenged the malcontents to make an open investigation of his office. (4) For some time they ignored this challenge, and endeavored (I am in- formed)...

AN "EXPERT" CHECKMATED. A CHILLAGOE INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 21 August 1898

AN "EXPERT" CHECKMATED. o A CHILLAGOE INCIDENT. Several smart norning "experts" have been trying on a little game with the holders of good copper or tin properties in the Herberton or Chillagoe districts. Their mode of operations is very simple (says the "Cairns Post," of 7th July). They go to the holders and say, "Look here, my name carries weight down South, and if you don't let me into this mines I will send down word that will prevent you selling." One or two min- ers have been soft enough to bite, but in at least one case an expert was badly done. Two men were sinking on a big lode of copper, not 100 miles from Cal- cifer, when an "expert" came along. Both miners were on top at the time, and to them the "expert" unfolded his mind. "Well, yesl and if we let you in will you boom it along t" they asked. "Of course," replied the expert, "I will do whatever I can for you, and as the Blank Syndicate are already nibbling at your claim, I can get appointed to examine «id report on the ...
