Commercial. The "Advocate" Office, Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 10 March 1899
Commercial. The ' Advocate ' Office, Thursday Evening. The prico paid for potatoes this ' morn ins ranged from 2/10/0 to 2/15/0, tho lat ter being the ruling figure at East Devon port. At West Devonport most dealers would not advance on 2/10/0. and sonio fought shy at this figure. Hoavy pur chases were, however, made at the figure named. Arrivals at East Devonport by team wero heavy, while at West Devon port the deliveries were large by team, water, and vail. The arrival of the ss Kiiii last night from Strahan via Burnie and Stanley with 2,633 sacks came as a surprise, which was still further intensi fied when the ss' Easby arrived to-day with 3,224 sacks from those ports. It was then easily to bo seen that exports for the week would bo heavy, and appearances point to about 20,000 sacks, if not more, by both stcimers. We have to-morrow's de liveries, which are always heavy, to look forward to, and it is very difficult to say what the quantity may be.. It is con sidered a certainty t...

PROTECTING APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 10 March 1899
'PROTECTING APPLES. Some orchardistB in the other colonies, wo learn, have used tho following means to successfully deal with birds attacking their apples. A few trees are selected that tee birds seem to iiavo a special wang lor, and a few apples picked off. A circular piece is then cut out sufficient to hold half a spoonful of honey, to which strychnine, arsenic, or some other deadly poison is added. Some small branches are then sharpened, and the apples stuck on to the pointB in such a way that tho honey can not run out. Tho birds that attack fruit are all, or nearly all, honey-eaters; and will take the poisoned bait in preference to the fruit. 'With this method tho crop ? is protected, and the birds destroyed at the « sometime.

Abandoned by Archangel Gabriel. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 10 March 1899
'Abandoned by Archangel Gabriel ['Pall Mall Gazette'] Some highly amusing litigation has been occupying the attention of the Paris courts. The defendant in the aciiim in question is Mile Couesdon. It will be romombered that this young person 'achieved no little notoriety - by UUilllUUg IU UO 1U UllllBlttUb CUUIUIU1I1 cation with the Archangel Gabriel. For a long time immense numbers of persons, some of them from distant parts of the world, flocked to listen to her predictions, which were delivered in do-!gercl that did small credit to the literary ability of her celestial adviser. Unhappily the voyante after 'bringing off one or two prophecies that seemed to make her a serious rival of Zadkiel, neglected to predict the fall of the Mclinp Cahinef. Thcnpp.fnrth hnr crrclit was ruined, and it appears that sho has fallen upon evil days. Thanks to her pecuniary embarrass ment, the public is now being en lightened as to the origin of her in spiration. A former associate of Mile Coucsdon i...

For the ladies. THE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 10 March 1899
For the bulies. THE HOME. The latest caprico of fashion is to re vive tlio slip-shilt of lace or muslin. Dctaclmblo muslin sleeves were a con temporary of the ' Trclawney' hat, which has come up ngnin, but the new idea is to havo a blouso shirt miidc entirely of rich looking lace. In Avintcr an overhoQicc must bo worn, and tliis effect recalls ex actly the early Bixtics. The adoption of the following plan may bo urged upon the economically minded : — For Sunday's dinner I can boast I have a leg of mutton roast ; On Monday, if tho truith be told, I cat it with somo pickles cold. On Tuesday I somo slices fry ; On Wednesday Iniako a pie ; On Thursday I, to cut a dash, Do make of it a savory hash ; And that it may longor last, On Friday I proclaim a fast. On Saturday it's got so narrow, I crack tho bonp and eat the marrow. .Teach children early to hold themselves up, and to walk properly, so that when they grow up they may have a graceful and easy carriage, and a good, firm step. * So s...
