The Ladies' Page. All communications for this column should be written on one side of the paper only, and be addressed to HOUSEWIFE, WESTERN MAIL OFFICE, Perth. THE KITCHEN. BAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

BtyÂll communications for this column should be _J written on one side of the paper only, and be addressed to HOUSEWIFE, WESTERN MAIL OFFICE, Perth. ? ? LBY A HOUSEWIFE.] THE KITCHEN. BAKING. Most people object moat strongly to meat being baked. They argue that the flavour is quite inforior to that of roast- ed meat ; nor are they mistaken. J. can- not describe wherein the difference of flavour lies, but that there is a diSerence is a fact. The reason of the difference in flavour is, however, simple. Certain vapours which arise from the meat when cooking before the fire ascend at once up the chimney, whereas when cooked in the oven these vapours are shut in, and must therefore affect the flavour. Some joints bake better than others. For instance, a shoulder of mutton is quite as nice baked as roasted, but not so a leg or a. loin of mutton. A new cooking range has been invented, in which the oven is so con- structed that a current of air caa always be passing through, and in that cas...

A CRACK STABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

A CRACK STABLE. When Matchlock shot first past the post I in the Champion Stakes the man most de I lighted was the Hon. James White, who had at last achieved the object of his am- bition. Comparatively a young aspirant to turf honours, he had during a short career won nearly every great race of the Victoria Racing Club and Australian Jockey Club ; but failure had always at- tended his efforts to win the great weight for-age race of the year. The Derby and Melbourne Cup, which veteran sportsmen had for years boen vainly struggling to win, fell to his lot early in his career as a turfman, but his idols Chester and Mar- tini- Henry both suffered defeat when they donned silk for the Champion Stakes, and it was left to the son of Musket to glad- den the heart of the squire of Kirkham. Thanks to the excerise of the shrewdest judgment and a judicious but very liberal expenditure in the purchase of thorough- breds, Mr. White has* succeeded in sur- passing the record of the veteran of tho tu...

Sporting. SPORTING GOSSIP [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

SPOUTING GOSSIP (BY VINDEX.) Since last week some events that have happened will have an important bearing j upon the following races at Perth. Chief | amongst them is the breakdown of the crack Tremando. It will bo remembered that a fortnight ago the horse in the absence of his owner was given a bricketing under rags on the recreation ground. This rash treatment of Tremando by tho lad in charge of him had the effect of weaken- ing the horse to an alarming oxtent. When ho was put back into his stable he could scarcely stand and altogether he seemed to bo in a most deplorable con- dition. Li a day or two he rallied aud seemed to nave recovered so completely that he was again put into| work. On Saturday last, however, it was palpable that something was amiss with him and Mr. Conway, the veterinary surgeon was consulted on the matter. That gentleman pronounced his ailment to be pleurisy and on Sunday resort was had to bleeding, abeut a gallon of blood being taken from thc horse. On Mon...

GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENTS [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENTS (.FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN'. | THE lamented death of the late Mr. J. G. SLADE, Resident Magistrate of Fremantle, while, in the first place, it arouses feelings of sincero person- al regret in ail who knew him both as a conscientious painstaking magistrate and as an upright honourable English gentleman of the best stamp, draws, in the next place, immediate attention to a matter of much public conse- quence-the duty which will shortly devolve upon the Government to fill up several Resident Magistracies in different parts of the colony and per- haps also to effect various other ex- changes. In such circumstances, .when important patronage, which must largely affect the interests of the community, has to be exercised, we caunot but regard the position of the Government with a certain amount bf sympathy. It is only fair to assume tbat any one either occupying the position of Governor or of Grown Minister, upon whom such patronage devolves, is sin- cerely desirous ...

BLIGHTED HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

BLIGHTED HOMES. 'For heaven's sate do not grumble !' were words uttered in a tone which expressed a sorely oppressed heart. The speaker was a young man, dressed in a fubtian suit of working clothes, which though coarse were clean, and could not disguise a fine form. His countenance was mild, grave and open ; his voice deep and touching, Eossessing those inflections which elong to strong feeling and a certain degree of cultivation. The woman beside him was a little compact crea ture, with a pretty face and piercing black eyes ; particularly neat in her attire, and quick in her movements, by which she was every now and then in advance of her companion, whose steady equal pace knew no déviation. These people were husband and wife, and were returning home to- gether in discourse more earnest than agreeable-one of those events which, in the fluctuations of trade, from time to time occur-a reduction of wages -had tried the temper of the one and touched the feelings of the other. George an...

THE TELL-TALE DIAMOND. (From the Waverly Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

THE TELL-TALE DIAMOND. {From Ute Waverly Magazine.*) OD the night of January, IO, 18-, the dinton Bank was entered by burglars who stole thirty thousand dollars. As soon as the robbery be* came known I repaired to the bank and ßought the president, to whom I presented my credentials and told him I wished to begin work at once. He acquiesced, and he went into the main office, were several young men were scratching away as unconcernedly as if they had not been engaged in an animated discussion of the robbery only a minute before. I glanced at them sharply, but saw nothing sus- picious about them, 1 examined the lock of the door opening on the street and found it ail right, although the first arrival had found the door ajar. Then next I examined the door open- ing upon the rear, and found it locked securely, in which condition it had been since the night before. " Who has charge of the key of the door ?" I enquired. *' Mr. Ci-, the cashier, has one, and our janitor the other." " Can I ...

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

COMME RC I AL. -» Under date February 19 McDonald, Scales & Co. report : WOOL.-The first series of wool sales for the present year was commenced on the 19th January, and closed on the 13th inst. The quantity catalogued was 224,000 bales. There has been taken altogether for export 54 per cent of tho quantity sold, including some 11,000 bales for America. It is estimated that about 24,000 bales have been held over for future sales. Complaints are made of the inferior quality of the present Australian clip in general, the sales showing an exceptionally large proportion of ill-grown and inferior sorts. With regard to prices the recent auc- tions have again been a cause of great disap- pointment to sellers. The opening expecta- tions of firm prices were soon crushed, andas the sales proceeded a perceptible downward tendency was manifest. Crossbreds, which at first showed a rise of five per cent, are now below former soles in value. Inferior and droughty parcels have lost Taine fr...

Protection of Potatoes from the Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

Protection ef Potatoes from the Disease. The following remarks upon a system of earthing potatoes, which, it ie claimed, pro- tects them from disease, have been condensed from a communication sent to the " Farmers' Gazette" by bit. J. L. Jenson, director of the Bureau Ceres, at Copenhagen :-The potatoes should be earthed on one side only, and this I should be done before the disease has spread to the leaves. The earthing should attain a height, of, say, from about 10 to 12 iuohes, so that the tubers should be covered by at least four or five inches of earth. To carry out this plan it will in practice be found neces \ sary to plant the rows about 36 inches apart. In America, in Franoe, Belgium, Germany, England, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway this plan has been found of great efficacy in over- coming the disease. In some experiments, j conducted on a small scale and with great I care, it has been found possible to protect the tubers entirely from the disease, as in .tho following exampl...

Odds and Ends. The Cook and the Lottery. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

The Cook and the Lottery. Some years since, when all tbe worm was mad upon lotteries, the Irish oook of a middle aged gentleman drew from his hands her earnings and savings of some years. Her employer was anxious to know the cause, and she told him that having repeatedly dreamed that a certain number was a great prize, she Lad bought a whole ticket. He called her an idiot for her pains, and never lost a chance to tease her on the subject. She seemed to take his taunts in good humour, saying it would all turn out right by-and-by. One morning he opened his paper at breakfast, and saw it announced that the very number which Bridget had dreamed and bought had drawn the great prize-100,000 dollars ! Bridget was summoned, and the wily gentle- man proceeded to inform her that he had long valued her as a friend, and being desir- ous to settle himself for life, be would be willhvr to make her his wife if she had no obje«Äon. Bridget had always thought him a dear, good man, and would be glad ...

FOSTER, THE MEDIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

FOSTEE, THE MËDIUM. I met in the ancient and historic St. Charles Hotel, in New Orleans, in ¡ the winter of 1874, Charles Foster, the medium, who died a week ago. He occupied two rooms on the ground floor, on a passage which opened on the left hand of the central rotunda. On his tour be was accompanied by a slight, shapely, fair-haired young man from Boston, whose name, if I re- member right, was Bartlett, and who had a soft, unearthly, spookish man- ner. A young man, in short, who might at any moment have derna» terialized himself and become a spirit without attracting attention to the process. He was Foster's secretary, and curiously enough did all the sordid pecuniary work of the trip. For Foster was a spendthrift who had good appetites, which he never hesi- tated to indulge. The rooms were extremely small and dingj. The second of the two was a bed-chamber, the first a sort of ante-room, holding at its best about ten people. Foster was as afraid in the dark as a child, and never ...

Drilling and Hoeing Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

^ Drilling and Hoeing Wheat "À.paragraph in another column, which refers to the opinion of a South Australian paper that the late poor harvest in that colony is largely due to the inefficient culture, leads directly to the subject of drilling in wheat and subsequently cultivating it with the horsehoe, as compared with the common practice of broad-casting the seed and leav- ing the field alone. We feel quite convinced that until the former system is adopted there will be no regularity in the Australian har «est. In good years the wheatfarmera of the «outhern colonies may continue to get their 7 to ll bushels by their present mode of skim ploughing, but that is not enough to make the occupation pay. A greater yield must be obtained now that the whole world is ic -competition as producers. The soils of Queensland are so far superior in their natural fertility that in good seasons here our farmerß may grow their 20 to 35 bushels per acre. Sut in these good seasons the rust comes and awa...
