A Cure for Clothes Moths. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

A Care for Clothes Moths. \: Everybody should be glad to know the easiest and most effectual way to get rid of those horrid pests of our -wardrobes clothes moths. The thanks of woman kind in general are therefore due to the Rev. J. G. Wood, who hast just made {rablic the carious fact of which I, at east, have been hitherto ignorant, that brown paper is almost an infallible cure. On laying aside one's winter clothes for, the snmmer, the simple plan of wrapping them up ip ordinary brown paper will, the reverend gentleman asserts, effectually y protect them -from the encroachments of the moth. Fnr should be protected in the same way, but where either wools or furs are left exposed during the sommer they should be well shaken every morning, ana the obnoxious insect thus unhoused will have no time to carry his nefarious opera- tions to a disastrous issue.

Compulsory School Attendance. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

Compulsory School Attendance. Considering the importance of training a wei] informed people in a democratio country, and the large sums of money that are being annually expended in plac- ing a fair education wittiin the reach of all, it is only reasonable that in cases where parents or children are too igno- rant, selfish, or idle, to avail. themselves of the advantages afforded, the State should step in and insist that the object of tho country in providing schools and teachers at a great cost should not be frustrated by individual caprice. On one day this week, owmg to the irregular attendance of children at the Government Boys' School in Perth, about a score of parents were summoned to attend the District Board of Education, and warned that if their children did not attend the school more regularly they (the parents) would be proceeded against without fur- ther notice at the Police Court. When compulsory education was first proposed there was a great outcry made in some quarters....

Prince Bismarck's Liquor Measure. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

Prince Bismarck's Liquor Measure. The Weet Australian publishes the i leading features of an extraordinary bill j recently introduced into the German Reichstag by Prince Bismarck. Under this bill the State is to be empowered by Parliament to buy up, at a fixed price, all the raw spirits oí German manufacture existing within the limitB of the Empire. The liquor thus acquired is then to he refined under the supervision of Govern- ment officials appointed for that purpose, and retailed at home or exported abroad, according to demand. AB a natara! con» sequence of this enactment-should it ever become law-the State would be in a position to regulate the production and sale of spirits by granting, withholding, or withdrawing at its pleasure, conces- sions for theirmanufacture, or licensesf or their dispensation over the counter. The Government, in short, would have an entire monopoly of the country's spirit trade. Barely ten years have elapsed since the German Chancellor fathered a simila...

Qualifying for a Voter. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

Qualifying: for a Voter. Those who desire to have their names inserted in the electoral roll, qualifying them for voting at tho election of mem- bers of the Legislative Council, are re- minded that they must do so on or before the loth April. .Rarely, if ever, is an election held without ita being accompanied by remonstrances, more or less indiquant, from persons who, upon presenting them- selves at the polling booth, have found that their names do not appear upon the register. It may be conceded that the most fertile cause of errors in th» electoral rolls is misconception or negli- gence on the part of those entitled to have their names inscribed upon them. But another cause is to be found in the fact that wider publicity is not given to the official notice reminding people of the date and of the place of registration. As a rule these notices are confined to the Government Gazette. It is a pleasant official fiction that everyone knows what appears in that ponderous literary orgau. ...

Military Picnics. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

Military Picnics. In view of the difficulties which snr- \ round the question of holding a military encampment at Easter, a suggestion has ; been made by a correspondent that it'would be well to banish the idea completely, and to substitute for it an idea which may be commended to their consideration-a military picnic. Al- though, as our correspondent says, the men would only be engaged a single day in their exercises, it is a question whether it would not be attended with greater advantage than the three days9 camp, with its fluctuating number of men, its numer- ous church parades, and its great expense. The military picnic is a great favourite in England, and notwithstanding that it means hard work, it affords much excite- ment and amusement. The following suggestions give some idea of what might be done here in the way of a picnic : Arrangements could be made with say the Guildford volunteers, to choose a spot some little distance from the railway line, at which they would erect ...

Observance of a Civic Bye-Law. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

Observance of a Civic Bye-Law. Among the regulations which our civic fathers in their wisdom have framed for the comfort and safety of the citizens is that which makes it compulsory for drivers of vehicles to carry lights after dark. Now and then this bye-law, like many other public regulations, seems to fall into a sort of slumber, where it re- mains until the municipal conscience is pricked, when the dormant bye-law is suddenly revived, and enforced with re- newed vigfmr. This is the case just now, several citizens having recently been fined for a non-observance of the above regulation. It is amusing to witness the ingenuity displayed by some people to ; carry out the municipal ukase. A few evenings ago, a team was seen coming into town from apart of the colony which is as yet unenlightened by a single ray of municipal wisdom, and where the inhabi- tants live in blissful ignorance of irritat- ing civic bye-laws. The driver of the team, unaware of the regulation, entered the city u...

THE CHILD AND THE SNOWFLAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

THE CHILD AND THE SNOW- FLAKES. One day as sbe stood at the window, watching the busy street and wonder« | ing wliy she alone of all children was 1 crippled, und thin, and weak, a snow- flake came sailing down through the December sky, paused a moment at the window, and then crept in at a broken pane, and rested on her wasted haud. The child smiled, and was glad, and said : " Did you pity me that you came to see me ?" u I have only pity for the poor and helpless," replied the snowflake. " Where are your companions?" " They will soon be here. I had a race with them, and I reached earth first." " It was so good of you to come in and see me," whispered the child. " Do you know that I am lame »nd ill, aud that no one loves me. All the sunshine and the happiness seems for others-all the suffering and the shadows for me. I wish I had been a snowflake. It must be so jolly to go roving about as-" The soo« flake had disappeared, and in its place was a tiny drop of water. The child was grieve...

MR. GLADSTONE'S APPEARANCE. LONDON, 22nd January. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

MR. GLADSTONE'S APPEARANCE.. ? LONDON, 22nd January. I was standing at the corner of Great. George-street, Westminster, on Wednesday - last, when I observed an unusual bustle amongst the policemen, to whom the task of protecting our Parliamentarians is confided There was a sudden rush at the heads of the horses harnessed to the numerous vehicles passing along the roadway, with the result. that there was much rearing and backing on the part of the* frightened animals. At length,, however, the traffic was stopped, and I then, divined that the efforts of the obsequious constables were directed towards making a. passage for some "great one," who was anxious to cross on foot over the busy thoroughfare which forms the left hand, boundary of the railed-in enclosure in front of Westminster Hall. I had not long to wait before I discerned, though I did not instantly recognise, the distinguished cause of all the hubbub. It was an old man; in. dark clothes, with a nimble step, but vAjthjsrv. ex...

The Curing of Figs. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

The Curing of Fips. | As to drying figs the following description: j1 from the Journal of the Society of Arts of the -jj mode ia which the fig is treated ia Sicily 'ii may prove interesting:-"It is gathered when it is only partially ripe-that is, more green than ripe ; it is then immediately im- mersed in boiling water, where it is allowed to remain for a few minutes only ; it is then placed iu some spot sheltered from the sun,., and on the following inornicg, at sunrise, the quantity gathered and then treated is. spread out upon a platform so as to be ex- posed to the full glare of the sun. Gare must be taken not to place the fruit upon the ground on account of the damp. Whilst, the process of drying is going on the fruit is placed on shallow willow workbaskets, but they are never allowed to rest on thejjwind. but are kept in an erect position. Jpkn set the fruit is covered over so as to protect it from the dew and from unexpected show- ers of rain. This treatment is co...

A Good Sign. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

A Good Sign. We may feel well founded satisfaction 'that the resident« of Western Australia are at last beginning to have opportuni- ties of seeing and heariug fairly good and complete companies of operatic and dram- atic performers, such as Stanley's juvenile troupe, which recently |left our shores, and the Koyal Dramatic Company now in oar midst. This gratification is farther enhanced by the remarkable financial suc- cess, as reported, of the late opera season, a success, which we may hope the new dramatic company is likely to repeat. When, with a population of 6000 or 7000, we saw the Town Hall of Perth filled night after night, at prices ranging Tip to four shillings, to witness opera _ ; Pouffe, and when again, as is the case this ; 'ffc^ week at .Fremantle, we see the largest hall in that town crowded nightly by enthusiastic audiences, we are impelled to .the agreeable reflection that money evi .. dently is by no means so scarce in these towns, as croakers assert or as pessimi...

Young Men's Improvement Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

Yoong Men's Improvement Societies. ^^^^^^ t ? There is s proposal on foot to estab- lish a Young Lien's Christian Association }: ota general character in Perth. There «re already in this city several institu- tions having for their subject the mutual improvement of young men. The aim which most of these societies have in view 3sth« benefit of their members by men- tal and social cnlture, and by affording opportunities for our young men to ex- press their opinions on various subjects publicly-forming in fact, a kind of prac- tice ground for public speaking in the fu- ture. We like the ambition that dictates such a course. We may be sure that we «hall find in such associations aspirants for future municipal and legislative hon- ers. Of course, it is not in the nature of things that all connected with these asso- ciations are likely to blossom into distin ,guish«d senators. But there can be no "doubt that tiiose amongst them who may fail hereafter to attain positions of emi- nence will...

The Value of Building Societies. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

The Taine of Building- Societies. The establishment of more Building Societies in Perth is a matter to be ap ' proved. The success which has attained the operations of the old society goes far ,< "to prove not only the correctness of the S principles upon which it was founded, but also the pnblic need of such institutions. It has been well said that when a man gets .a house of his own he takes the first step , towards prosperity. Certainly it is, in the majority of cases, the first and strong- est tie which binds a colonist to the : ' country of his adoption. The hope and .expectation of attaining to such a position is undoubtedly one of the chief humee A tnents to a large majority of persons to -^P leave the old country and seek a home in 4 new one. Like benefit societies, savings banks, and kindred institutions, a build ing society founded on just principles and Sroperly conducted fosters habits of pru ent forethought, self-reliance, and self - > respect in its membe...

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. Perth, March 26, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. Perth, March 26, 1886. Heavy lines of merchandise have been brought to auotion, but have realised only moderate prices. While these large stocks are being forced on the market it is not likely that the wholesale houses can dispose of their stooks at remunerative rates. The prospects for cereals and breadstuffs seem moderately bright, but we hear of a sale of colonial flour at something under our quotations. There is a strong demand for money, and few amounts are obtained on mortgage at less than eight per cent., however good the securi. ty. The banks have not changed their rates, but are said to be acting with somewhat exceptional caution. No symptom of activity is visible in the land market. We believe that some consider able properties will shortly be offered for sale, but it is doubtful whether the market is sufficiently strong to enable it to absorb any new estates, unless at a great reduction on previous rates.
