THURSDAY, MARCH 18. TAAFE v. TAAFE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
THURSDAY, M AUCH 18. TAAFE V. TAAFE. Counsel having addressed the Court, &nbsp; Mr. Justice Stone, in delivering his jud ment, said the case was one in which the wife sought a judicial separation from her husband on the ground of cruelty, and she alleged in her petition certain specific acts of cruel upon which she relied as entitling her to decree of the Court in her favour. No cruelty upon which the Court granted judicial separation was different from cruelty as they understood it in its ordinary and con mon sense. It was known to the profession as legal cruelty, as distinguished from the kind of cruelty, or those acts which were usually looked upon as cruel, but which in law were not cruel so as to entitle the parties to a judicial separation. This legal cruelt had been defined and well-established by the Courts to be such a cruelty as to place the life, or the limb, or the health of a person in danger, or something which rendered co habitation unsafe, or likely to be att...
SUPREME COURT — CIVIL SITTINGS. Before His Honor the Chief Justice and a Special Jury. FRIDAY, MARCH 19. BULLEN v. BROOKINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
SUPREME COURT - CIVIL SITTINGS. His Sonar the Chief Justice and Special Jury. -* FEIDAY, MARCH 19. BULLEN V. BBOCKINGTON. Mr. Burt, in this case-a motion for judg- ment, which had been set down for hearing to-day-moved that the case be adjourned until next Monday. He said he did BO at the request of the other side. His Honor : Does the Court sit on Monday P Mr. Burt said he did not know-he presum- ed it would. There was no saying nowaday when the Court would pop down and sit ? His Honor ; Unless there is a special sit- ting of the Court on Monday, the case ought to be adjourned until the next regular month- ly sittings. We shall never know when we shall end, at this rate. Mr. Burt said that in another case, that of fleeter v. Stein, they had adjourned five or six times to suit the convenience of the other side, and he had another motion for adjourn- ment to make presently, in order to further suit their convenience. The defendant was quite prepared to go on ; and BO was the plaintif...
LABOUR REPRESENTATION. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
LABOUB EEPHESENTATION. db. IVROK THU WEST AUSTRALIAN. | J TBE nome country is ever seeking inspiration from her offshoots, and seldom attempts a political adventure that has not first been tried in the colonies. The recent general election has apparently turned on questions of great importance-on Buch questions as Ireland, foreign and colonial policy and the great subjects which have divided party counsels. But beneath the broad upper currents have flowed lesser ones which may lead to weighty consequences. Amongst these minor currents maa the movement io favor of labour representation and the payment of labour representatives -following Australian precedents which has become a distinctive feature in the new Parliament. The bulkiness of the Parnellite party iu the present representation of the electorates is what now first attracts attention, but should it be found practicable to carry on work other than Irish with any degree of smoothness the capabili- ties of the present House for ...

Too Curious. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
Too Curious. In an Amerioan railway-carriage there once journeyed a quiet gentleman, having between bis feet a basket of peculiar shape. An in- quisitive stranger asked him what the basket might contain. " It contains a mongoose.", was the answer. " And what is a mongoose ?" the stranger queried. "A mongoose." the gentleman replied politely, "is an East In dian animal that kills snakes." "And what might you want a mongoose for now ?" con- tinued the inquisitive stranger. " Well," answered the gentleman, " I have a brother in-law who has been a little too fond of tanglefoot whisky, and sometimes he saes snakes ; and so I am taking this mongoose to him to kill the snakes." The inquisitive stranger hesitated a moment, and then he said: But those are not real snakes your l>rother-in law sees!" "I know it." returned the quiet gentleman, " and this is ¿ot a real mongoose !"

A Dairy Farm. Queenslander. "Flagstone, tbe. residence of Mr, J. W. Zill- man, is a charmingly situated dairy farm on the north bank of the Caboolture River, -Moreton District, Queensland, aud about -eight wiles west of the township of the same name, with au area of about 2200 acres, 'the majority of which is ridgy country, well clothed with double leafed iron bark and apple trees .-a sure and certain indi- cation of good grazing land, There are also some very fertile ñata and scrub pockets -along tho river, which are gradually being cleared and partly cultivated ; this land bas the richest grazing properties., one acre of which is equal to ten of ridge land in a dry season.

This, by-the-bye is a most comfortable one, being substantially built, with seven rooms and a kitchen, and handsomely situated on a ridge overlooking the creek, and facin...
The Drought in Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
The Drought in .Queensland. Tbe partial character of the rainfall in Queensland ie vouched for in the following, from the QveensUvnder :-"A gentleman who last week returned from a visit to the Cen- tral districts gives a lamentable account of that portion of the Peak Downs district traversed by the railway from Emerald to Clermont. Along the coast wathershed, raia has been abundant, and up to Emerald grass is fairly plentiful. Beyond that point, how- ever, the countr y is one bleak desert ; the few remaining tufts of coarse grass to be seen being bleached, and totally unfit to sustain animal life. At Clermont there was a heavy downpour, registering 4.70in., iu I less than two hours, but it did not extend beyond a very limited radius. At Emerald , a melancholy spectacle waB seen, a special train freighted with sheep being sent from a well known Peak Downs run to the Barcoo, ia order if possible to save their lives. It was stated that the Government hod consid- erately agreed to carry...
Buddle aud Grease v. Pitch for Branding. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
Buddle aud Orease v. Pitch for Branding, I " Charles Gray " writes to the ¿liutrait xian. Sir.-In your issue of the 13th iust. au article on the branding of sheep with pitch is published. The writer says "Manufacturers are always asking them- selves whether growers in Australia have really no knowledge whatever as to the bad ef- fects of brandingsbeep with pitch, and as com- plaints from the various stages the wool hos to run through in the mills reach the manu- facturers' ears.the question is raised again and again, whether there is no remedy for this most pernicious evil ?" As far as my 45 years experience shows it makes little difference in the value of a clip ia the London market whether it is branded with pitch or not brauded at all. Twenty-five years ago I discarded pitch as a branding material, substituting ruddie and grease. This mixture is little injured by rain, being quite distinct at the «nd of winter, but when sheep are washed in hot j water the greater part of brand di...
The Feeding Habits of Horses and Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
The Feeding Habits of Horses and Cows. ' If horses do not chew their food before J swallowing it, it is seldom more than half I digested. Among them there are many ! " perfect hogs "-ravenous feeders, who swallow a mouthful simply to make room for 1 another, without waiting to chew it or to moisten it with saliva, which is the real be- ginning of digestion. The writer ouce had a mare that was such a voracious eater that she frequently nearly choked herself, and tiaally m one of her hali-choking paroxysms drew some oats or bran into her lungs, which produced inflammation and death. When dry feed-com and oats ground together, brau &c-ie fed, horses hiving this tendency are obliged to eat slowly, for it is necessary for them to moisten the meul thoroughly be- fore it is swallowed and this involves chew- ing, so that they cannot eat faster than the flow of saliva will moisten the food. With oats, or maize, uugrouud, a very little mois- ture suffices, and the grain is swallowed w...
OUR LONDON LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
OUR LONDON LETTER. -» Mr. Gladstone, that marvellous man, or as he himself has recently described him- self-that "old Patliamentary hand" has formed his new Administration, and today its various members are addressing their constituents. Mr. Gladstone's own address is of course the longest, and is almost entirely occupied with references to the sister island. " It will be among the very first duties of the new Government"-so concludes the new " Manifesto"-" to use its official opportunities for forming such an esti- mate as only a Ministry can form of the social state of Ireland, especially with re- gard to crime, to the fulfilment of con- tracts, to the pressure of low prices upon agriculture, and to personal liberty of action. The course of poliey, as a whole, cannot be considered without reference to this examination, but beyond all doubt the hope and purpose of the new Govern- ment in taking office is to examine care- fully whether it is not practicable to try some other method ...
Our Novel[?] A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. A stern chase is a long chase " THE SECOND PART. CHAPTER VI. NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
A STERN CHASE. -. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. " A stern chase is a long chase " THE SECOND PART. CHAPTER VI. NEWS. " You quite understand, my dear," said Dr. Rosslyn to Lilias, on the following day, " that it is necessary for you to put me in possession of every particular of Hugh's move- wents, so far as you know them. If &nbsp; you prefer that I should not read his last letter, I shall not press you to let me do so, but in that case you must be very careful to give me every fact which can guide me in the enquiry I have to make. What would seem to you a trifle might be of importance in this case." Lilias grew deadly pale as she listened to these words. She had been preparing herself to hear some- thing like them, but when they came her preparation availed nothing. And yet this was better than she had expected : she had never flattered her- self that the mild indulgence with which he had treated her confession would extend to his abstaining from demanding Hu...

Onion Growing. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
Onion Growing. &nbsp; The culture of onions in the Drys- &nbsp; dale district Victoria has for many &nbsp; years been most successfully carried on, but at length something wrong &nbsp; has occurred ; failures have been re- ported, and chemists allege that they are &nbsp; due to the absence of " sulphur and phos- &nbsp; phates," a result, it is said, of the practice of growing the crop on the same ground &nbsp; year after year. This comes as a surprise &nbsp; to many old English growers, whose fathers &nbsp; always kept the same patch of ground for &nbsp; onions, because they came better on such &nbsp; land than on land that had not previously &nbsp; borne them. There is no gainsaying the &nbsp; fact that this practice was very common in &nbsp; some parts of England, but it is of little value to us here, because we have no means &nbsp; of ascertaining the nature of ...
Josh Billings' Wit. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
Josh Billings' Wit. If the marlers of virtew were haff as numerous, and haff az up and doing as the marters of deviltry, we could prognostikate with safety that the millenium waz moving, this way. Soon or later all lies must evaporate ; even, autiquity haz never been able to konsekrate one yet. There is nothing more common than, excuses, and yet I don't rekolekt ov hearing huff a dozen good ones in all mi life. Precept iz a kind ov seckond-hand ex- perience, which but few will accept at enny price. Idleness iz the grate bane ov life, the canker that silently eats into the soul thru &nbsp; thc boddy, the principal kause of melankolly &nbsp; poverty, and krime. The lowest possible level to reach in, soshial life iz to toadey to a snob. Silence iz a safe place to hide. If those people who retire from the world would only tell us that they have not got virtew enuff to live in it, wc should have a higher opinyon or their philosophy and philanthrophy. Experience iz the old...
NICOLBAY. No. 111. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
NICOL BAY. No. 111 BY BUCOLIC. &nbsp; In February, 1865, Messrs. Knight, Taylor & Lockyer sent out a cargo of sheep from Fremantle in charge of the late Mr. W. A. Taylor, accompanied by Mr. George Lockyer. The voyage to Butcher's Inlet was successful, and the new arrivals had the experience of their predecessors on the Harding, Messrs. Hall and Withnell, who on this, as well as on subsequent occasions, gave every assistance in their power to new comers. This firm subsequently settled at Table Hill, and also secured the famous Mill Stream on the Upper Fortescue. After a varied experience of four years the company grew disheartened at the low price of wool, with the great expense of working a remote station, and dissolved partnership, and Mr. George Lockyer taking charge of his father's sheep-about seven hundred-managed them so well that they have now increased to over 20,000 kept on the runs as well as several thousand sold at various times. This station I hope to ref...
Australian Pronounciation. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 March 1886
Australian Pronouaciation. Mr. Froude's opinion of Australian pronounciation differs from that express ed by most writers, and would suggest that, in all probability he had fewer op- portunities of observing how the average Australian pronounces his mother tongue. " The first thing that struck me-and the impression remained during all my stay in the Australian Colonies-(writes Mr. Froude in his "Oceana ") was the pure &nbsp; English that was spoken there. They do not raise the voice at the end of a sen- tence, as the Americans do, as if with a challenge to differ from them. They &nbsp; drop it courteously like ourselves. No provincialism has yet doveloped itself. The tone is soft, the language good, the aspirates in the right places." Mr. &nbsp; Froude has been happy in his experiences. I That pure English is as a rule spoken in Australia we Australians can scarcely flatter ourselves. Some time ago, a correspondent of the West Australian pointed out the pecul...
