SELECTING AND WORKING A FARM ON MIXED LINES. A FEW HINTS TO BEGINNERS. Questions To Ask Oneself. Early Ploughing [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
SELECTING AND WORKING A FARM ON MIXED LINES. A FEW HINTS TO BEGINNERS. Questions To Ask Oneself. BY "OLD HAND." Early Ploughing admits of having the land ready for early sowing should rain come. Throughout the States the early sown crops furnish far the best averages, both in qnantiiy and quality, and in some parts the early maturing which early sowing engenders stops the losses from grain shelling. Strength of Teams. The great mistake many people make in ploughing and in carting is that they work one horse short in the team. By practical experience I found I could do one-third more work in a given time with a quick- walking team than obtains with the ordinary farm pace, and retain their condition better on the same feed—both important factors. Whatever numher of furrow-ploughs, or number of tons to pull, have the horse in proportion, so that the extra speed can be made and maintained without toss of con- dition, which invariably happens when under-horsed. Horses in good condition r...
ROLES FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
RULES FOR FARMERS. &nbsp; Complete you knowledge by reading agri- &nbsp; cultural books and papers. Keep a diary. Try to lower outgoings and to increase income. Pay cash, if possible, and do not let others owe you money, as it is the surest way of creating enemies. Work yourself, and do not rely too much upon your servants. What can be done to-day must not be put off until to-morrow. Take time for your meals and sufficient rest, and ensure thereby general good health. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Keep everything in exemplary order in houses and outbuildings. Shelter your machines and implements, and paint them when necessary. Repair them in slack times yourself; a &nbsp; shilling saved is a shilling earned. Give salt to your animals, and feet them liberally. Keep good cows. Pigs and fowls will pay. Subdivide your land, and shift cattle and sheep to keep them healthy. Sow the best seeds suitable for ...
PETS ON THE PIPES. REID'S PIPE TRACK GANG. Alleged Unfair Treatment. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
PETS ON THE PIPES. REID'S PIPE TRACK GANG. Alleged Unfair Treatment. S. Gourley writes:—Knowing that the columns of yonr paper are always open to the public for the ventilation of a grievance, and as I consider I have a just one, I will try and state it in as concise a manner as possible. I have been employed in Foreman Reid's pipe gang, Coolgardie Water Supply Scheme since a time previous to Coro- nation holidays, consequently I and the rest were compelled to remain off work for three days during that period. I am led to believe that there is a rule in the department that any per- son to be eligible for payment for holidays must have been employed in a gang for a period of six weeks pre- vious to such holidays ; also that he must resume work on the day follow- ing the holidays. Failing that he for- feits his claim to payment. With these rules I have no fault to find if they are administered justly and all concerned are treated in the same way. Rut when Foreman Reid or Scott, the ti...
THE CONVICT DAYS. W.A. IN THE FIFTIES. PUBLIC EXCUTIONS COMMON. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
THE CONVICT DAYS. W.A. IN THE FIFTIES. PUBLIC EXECUTIONS COMMON. Comparatively speaking, serious crimes were not numerous in W.A in the fifties, despite the large convict element. Opportunities and circum- stances were not present. A man might thieve, but he had nowhere to dispose of his gains ; he might mur- der, but he was almost certain to be found out. In the country district there was still a paucity of specie; business was conducted by cheque and barter. Few settlers kept money in the house ; even roadside bills were paid in cheques or orders. A man's order might circulate for months before specie was paid for it. If his credit was known to be good, his IOU. was deemed as useful an exchange as a pound note. The absence of crime did not altogether prove reformation; to some extent it denoted the absence of opportunities. Two robberies were reported in 1854, and in August a convict named Edward Bishop wa' arrested on a charge of murdering a Chinaman at York. The body was thrown ...
CHIEF MECHANICAL ENGINEER. INJUSTICE TO A CRIPPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
CHIEF MECHANICAL EN- GINEER. INJUSTICE TO A CRIPPLE. "Buffer Pad" writes :—Having read your article of a few Sundays ago on the maladministration and incom- petence of the Chief Mechanical En- gineer, I would like to draw your attention a little closer for the purpose of showing how petty tyranny and in- competence are practised in some of the branches under him. About 18 months ago an employee, whilst en- gaged in loading timber, had the mis- fortune to meet with an accident which caused permanent disablement, the accident having dislocated his knee- cap. On recovering from the first effects of the accident he was found suitable employment in the trimming branch of the carriage shop ; but after being there some time he, for some unaccountable reason, brought down upon him the displeasure of the great "I Am" Who Lords it over the carriage shop, viz., Mr. R. Baker, probably through his inability to adopt a sufficiently servile and cowering attitude when spoken to by that would-be Job...
FOOTBALL AUSTRALIAN GAME. YESTERDAY'S RESULTS. PERTH v. WEST PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
AUSTRALIAN GAME. YESTERDAY'S RESULTS. PERTH V. WEST PERTH. &nbsp; There was a very satisfactory attendance at the match between the Perth and West Perth clubs, which was played on the Cricket Association ground yesterday afternoon. West were without the services of Wildy, Allen, Kennedy and Williams, but they in- cluded Strickland, Orr, Everett, and Mona- gham. Perth won the toss and kicked to- wards the river. They had their fall team out, though Morphett, Jeffreys, Purling, and R. Cherry were none too well. Jeffreys col- lared on the bounce and forwarded, the ball going out of bounds. Perth attached and &nbsp; Cleland and Strickland relieved. Jeffreys forced down again, but O'Brien intervened. Perth shortly afterwards got a behind, which was followed by a second off a snap shot by Edmondson. Strickland headed a rush by West, Loel helping. Crass sent away, and Bailey put in slashing work on the pavilion &nbsp; &nbsp; wing. A free kick against Clarke ...
EAST FREMANTLE v. S. FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
EAST FREMANTLE v. S. FREMANTLE. Between two and three thousand specta- tors assembled on the North Fremantle Oval to witness this match. The weather was fine with no wind. The ground was not in very good order, some top-dressing recently put on by the North Fremantle Council interfering with the play. The play throughout the first half was a good deal on the rough side, and free-kicks for breaches of rules were numerous. In the second half both sides played the game, and the umpire's task was mach easier. From the outset East started to attack, and Chittleborough snapped a goat for the blue and whites. Toohey shortly afterwards took a mark within a few yards of the uprights, but only scored a behind. Hodge aad Douglas put in some good work for South, and transferred the play. The red and whites missed some good chances for goals, their kicking being very erratic. At quarter-time. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; East Fremantle, 1.4 (10 points). South Fremantle, 3 behinds...
NORTH FREMANTLE v. SUBIACO. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
NORTH FREMANTLE v. SUBIACO. There was a sparse attendance on the Fre- mantle Oval yesterday afternoon to witness the match between North Fremantle and Subiaco. Four of North's crack players, in Wakely, Corkhill, G. Munro and Williams stood out, and their places were filled by four lesser lights in C. Munro, Mentaplay, Tim Toohey and Walker. Subiaco took the field two men short, but had their full com- plement a few minutes after play had com- enced. North stated off with a rush, and Cooper getting the ball close to Subiaco's uprights scored an easy goal. This was fol- lowed up by Laing and Earnshaw piloting the leather between the visitors' goal-posts. Some good play was shown by Heindricks and Mitchell, the former being accorded a round of applause for a fine mark. Just be- fore the bell Subiaco got a break on their &nbsp; opponents, and Bowen marking in fine style kick a neat goal. At half-time the scores were:— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; North Fremantle,...
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN FOOTBALL. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN FOOTBALL. ADELAIDE, SATURDAY. A football match was played on the Ade- laide Oval this afternoon between the team which recently defeated Victoria and the second eighteen. The game was played to assist the selectors in picking the team which is to go to Melbourne to play on Coronation Day. The attendance numbered 6,000. At three-quarter time the No. 2 team was leading, but the game finished against them. The final scores being :— Interstate Team, 8.8 (54 points). No. 2 Team, 5.8 (38 points).
W.A. AMATEUR ATHLETIC CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
W.A. AMATEUR ATHLETIC CLUB. The boxing contests for the trophies pre- sented by Messrs. W. H. McCormack and W. J. Gutteridge, which had reached the final stage, were concluded last night at the W.A. Amateur Athletic Hall. The two left in the final were J. Mack and Peter Daley. The latter did all the leading, and in the fourth round knocked Mack out. Daley, who is only a youth, displayed great cleverness, and he well deserves his victory, which entitles him to Mr. McCormack's hand- some trophy. Mack gained Mr. Gutteridge's trophy, a very neat memento of the contest. Mr. "Sam" Grimwood acted as referee. Friend : "Why doesn't your husband take &nbsp; you to the play, Mary?" &nbsp; Mary : "Because he is bald-headed." &nbsp; Friend : "Oh, I see ; he doesn't like the people to see him with his hat off." Mary: "Yes; that's it. I do wish I knew what would make his hair grow." Friend : "Well, I know what I would do if I were you." Mary : "What ! Oh do tell me quick?" ...
LATE SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
LATE SPORTING. Velocity and Hesitation have both gone amiss. The former has a big leg, and Hesi- &nbsp; &nbsp; tation is very dotty. Amiral is slowly recovering from the knocking about he received on the journey across the Bight. Clifton is looking much better, and he will accompany Sport Royal and Newark to the Goldfields. Britannic and Silverstream will leave &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; next week for Kalgoorlie. Hayes, who came down for the Canning Park meeting yesterday will take them back with him. It having been discovered that if the weights for the Coolgardie meeting are de- &nbsp; clared to-morrow the club would in all pro- babilty suffer (because of the fact that winners at Kalgoorlie and Boulder would be penalised), an effort is now being made to get the owners of horses engaged at the meeting to consent to the declaration of the adjustments being withheld until after the two meetings mentioned. It is understood that ...
MELBOURNE NOTES. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
MELBOURNE NOTES. &nbsp; &nbsp; MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. &nbsp; The publicatio of the weights for the Caulfield Nationals has led to little straight out betting, but the double eventers have been active. The Mill Park stable is in such great form that their horses are natur- ally favorites. Colonel Shilinski has a lot of weight, and Rawdon, who is not over- burdened considering his Flemington victory, will probably be the elect of the stable. Isis is a nice mare who can stay, and with her light weight she should improve on her Flemington form. Lowland Chief, who last year ran second to &nbsp; Repeater at Caulfield, has a luxurious weight for so good a horse, and as he is sure to see out the three and a half miles he should be close up at the finish. Coat-of-Arms is a stayer, and he was going well when he fell at Flemington. Nansen is another proved stayer who is not badly treated by the handi- capper, and the same applies to Rickshaw. Shoddy has shown impr...
THEATRICAL. QUEEN'S HALL. THE STEELE-PAYNE BELLRINGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
THE STEELE-PAYNE BELLRINGERS. This talented combination will make their first appearance in Perth at the Queen's Mail on Wednesday next for a three night's season. Although styling themselves bell- ringers, it must not be concluded that bell- ringing forms the entire entertainment, as in addition to handbell and sleighbell ringing, they are accomplished pianists, violinists, banjo, guitar and mandolin players, and their solo and part singing, both humorous and sentimental,, forms a most attractive portion of the entertainment. The prices of admission are popular, and the box plan is now open at Nicholson's. &nbsp; &nbsp;
SYDNEY ITEMS. SYDNEY, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
SYDNEY ITEMS. &nbsp; &nbsp; SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA. &nbsp; &nbsp; At Randwick one morning this week, Abington ran nine furlongs nicely in 2.10. Queen of Sheba was in front of Horace and Scientist at the end of six furlongs, covered in 1.24. Abundance and Felicitous were restricted to three-quarter pace work. Aus- tralian Colors proved a long way too good for Graftwell in a mile and a quarter gallop, &nbsp; executed in 2.25. Warrior II. is not being brushed along yet. Persian put up an at- tractive performance at Warwick Farm, which bas gained him support for the spring &nbsp; long distance handicaps. He is fast and looks like a stayer.
BIJOU THEATRE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
BIJOU THEATRE The company at the Bijou gave every satisfaction to the patrons by their rendition of "East Lynne" during the week, and a special recognition is deserved of the emo- tional acting of Miss Tracey Hamilton. She and the supporting actors and actresses caused us to take a new interest in a play which appears perennial in its reproduction. Last night the talented company revived "Colleen Bawn," by special request, to a good audience. To-night the oompany pro- duce "East Lynne" at North Fremantle.
THEATRE ROYAL. "SHERLOCK HOLMES." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
THEATRE ROYAL. "SHERLOCK HOLMES." &nbsp; Under the direction of Mr. J. G. William- son, the new English Dramatic Company (which includes a few actors and actresses well known to Perth) presented the London and American dramatic sensation, "Sherlock Holmes," at the Theatre Royal last night. The large audience expected a treat, and they got it. The company is one of the most powerful combinations which Mr. Wil- liamson has introduced to the West, and they played in a piece that might hare been written for them, so well did each actress and actor fit into their respective parts. It is a drama with sensations and exciting situations, but stage effect is never obtruded to the sacrifice of art. The stage direction &nbsp; was under the personal supervision of Mr. H. H. Vincent, the scenery and scenic effects were excellent, and all who were present last night in their sheer enthusiasm must advertise the play among their friends and neighbors, so that "Sherlock Homes" is bou...

TOWN HALL, Fremantle. George Willoughby and his talented &nbsp; London Comedy Company appeared at this &nbsp; house at the Port on Saturday night before &nbsp; a large audience in the "Wrong Mr. Wright," &nbsp; preceded by "The Grey Parrot."

Fre- &nbsp; mantlelites will be sure to take the oppor- &nbsp; &nbsp; tunity of witnessing these performances.
[?]Perth Orchestral Society. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902
Perth Orchestral Society. The above society will hold its second con- cert on Saturday afternoon next at 3.30 in the Town HalL The society deserves en- couragement in its endeavors to create an appreciation of musical art, and it is to be hoped that a full house will be the result. The programme will consist of well-known orchestral numbers, and should prove most interesting. Mr. R. D'Arcy Irvine will, as usual, conduct.
