HOMUNCULUS HODGSON. CRIMES OF CAULKING CONSPIRATORS. CAUSE OF C. Y. O'CONNOR'S DEATH. The Laws Lassitude to Boobies and Looters. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
CRIMES OF CAULKING CONSIRATORS. CAUSE OF C.Y. O'CONNOR'S DEATH. The Laws Lassitude to Boobies and Looters. &nbsp; On the 19th of February last we published &nbsp; a long article headed "Corruption by Con- &nbsp; tract — Chummy Couston and O'Connor — The Pipe Track Scandal — Toadies and Tricksters that Should be Tried," The ob- ject of the article was to expose the robbery to which the country was subjected by such men as Engineer Hodgson and the impudent so-called investors, Messrs. Couston and Findlayson. In that article we said, "The &nbsp; main weir and the reservoirs were estimated to cost £320,000 by day labor. The cost of the weir along was £500,000. The pipe track was to have cost 2s. per yard, or £291,000—and half of it would have to be &nbsp; gone over again. The joints, which were &nbsp; estimated to cost £20,000, had cost £120,000. . . . In Parliament on Tuesday last it was openly stated that there were serious rumors with r...
POLITICAL PLUMS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
POLITICAL PLUMS. BY AN M.L.A. Phew! how the rats scuttled ! Everyone knew that the no-confidence motion would be defeated, but the Opposition expected to make a decent show at the decision, because they anticipated the dissatisfied Minis- &nbsp; terialists, who were reported to be a strong body numerically, would come over and vote with them. When it was evident there was to be no movement of that kind, and that the Government party would vote solid, then the Opposition rate began to scamper, and those who were not game to scamper hid themselves in dark corners. Mr. Stone was the first to go, and he made a speech in which he endeavored to shield his rat proclivities under a claim of Inde- pendence. It is earnestly to be hoped that he convinced himself, but doubtful—very doubtful. Mr. Hassell mostly finds the claims of his sheep more worthy of atten- tion than his political duties, and so he does not attend often, and when he does attend he is as dumb as an oyster. Occasion...
D[?] SAVED HIS LIFE AND WON HIM A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
DOXO SAVED HIS LIFE AND WON HIM A WIFE. &nbsp; &nbsp; He was sad-eyed and bald-headed. He stood and looked down at the dark waters of the Swan River and murmured—"I shall do it now; my mind is made up. She will not have me because I am bald. I have &nbsp; &nbsp; tried all the hair remedies, and they have failed. I shall just write a few lines on this piece of the dear old SUNDAY TIMES, which I shall never see more, and tell her that I did lov—What's this I see?" (He reads.) "DOXO, the greatest and latest hair-grower; never failes." "Ah! I shall try it, and if it fails"—but there was no fail where DOXO is concerned; and a few months after the wedding bells were ringing, and he and his loved ones were walking to the church. He said—"Darling, DOXO will ever be to me the sweetest name on earth." (Curtain.) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...
RURAL TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
Critical season of the year. &nbsp; Everyday now worth two later on. &nbsp; Give a sugar beet crop a trial. Plough deeply for its culture. An acre in a favorable season is worth &nbsp; £20 to £25. &nbsp; The root is valuable for cattle, and in- creases their milk supply. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; When matured the roots can be taken np and "pitted," and will last a considerable time. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Potato planting should be vigorously car- &nbsp; ried out. The tubers take from three weeks to a month to come up. Deep planting in wet land is not to be recommended for them. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Cattle are more scarce than ever. The re- stocking of the Boers' farms in South Africa has a deal to do with the high rates in the other States. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &a...
For the Farmers. WEST AUSTRALIAN GRASSES THEIR ECONOMICAL USES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
WEST AUSTRALIAN GRASSES THEIR ECONOMICAL USES. BY FRED TURNER, F.L.S., F.R.H.S., ETC. Panicum decompositum (R. Br. "Austra- lian Millet").—This valuable grass is found all over Australia, from the coastal districts to the far interior. In moist places and by the side of watercourses, it sometimes attains a height of 4ft.; on the plains, how- ever, it rarely exceeds 2ft. in height. In all its varied forms it yields most valuable herbage, which stock of all kinds are remarkably fond of and fatten on. The &nbsp; writer has had the "Australian millet" under experimental cultivation for several years, and the amount of herbage it yielded REFERENCE TO PLATE:—A, showing the relative size of the outer glume to the spikelet; B, spikelet opened out, showing the position of the four glumes and two paleas; C, grain, back and front views. All variously magnified. &nbsp; &nbsp; in a few months was really astonishing. &nbsp; The hay that was made from it was equal...
POPULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
Broodies are in demand. Fertile eggs are scarce yet. Healthy stock produces healthy chicks. &nbsp; Hatching should soon commence in ear- nest. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Keep the nest of the sitters free from vermin. In setting hens adhere as closely to nature as possible. The setting hen should have no soft food. Her diet should be sound corn and wheat, grit and green stuff, and an abundance of pure cool water. &nbsp; Chicks hatched from eggs set during this and next month, will be the best birds to use as future breeders. &nbsp; Don't risk valuable eggs under untried hens early in the season; only seasoned veterans should be used. Don't set the hen until she is properly broody; better let her sit a couple of days on a few dummies and a china door-knob rather than lose a clutch of good eggs and a brood of early chicks. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Any box that is weather tight and large enough, will do to set a hen in; we pr...
Raising Turkeys. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
Raising Turkeys &nbsp; &nbsp; Never let the young turkeys get wet. The slightest dampness is fatal. Feed nothing the first 24 hours after they are hatched. &nbsp; &nbsp; Before putting them in the coop see that it is perfectly clean and free from lice, and dust them three times a week with insect powder. &nbsp; &nbsp; Be sure the hen is free from lice. Dust her too. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Look out for mites and other large lice on the heads, necks, and vents. Grease heads, necks and vents with lard, but avoid kerosene. &nbsp; &nbsp; Nine-tenths of the young turkeys die from lice. Remember that. Filth will soon make short work of them. Feed on clean surfaces. Give water in a manner so that they can only wet their &nbsp; beaks. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The first week feed a mixture of one egg (beaten) and sifted g...
HINTS ON THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
HINTS ON THE HORSE. BY PROFESSOR MCGILLIVRAY. &nbsp; Never feed a horse immediately after com- &nbsp; ing off a long journey; let him be washed &nbsp; down and stand for an hour and then feed him. &nbsp; When going on a long journey never hurry the horse either the first or last mile. Never give a horse a big feed just before &nbsp; starting on a journey, better reserve until his work is done, then it will do him more good. Never give a horse more than a couple of mouthfuls of water if the animal is hot, or you may founder him. Never let a horse know he is beaten, even if he is, and you will always have a good one. Never handle a horse for work too young. Anything under 4 years is not old enough, and has not enough sense, and his joints are not set. When mounting never catch the cantle of the saddle, but the pommel with the right hand. When schooling a horse to jump, never &nbsp; &nbsp; jump him more than twice at one lesson, a...

FOOTBALL AUSTRALIAN GAME. YESTERDAY'S RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
The senior football matches resulted, ex- cept in one case, as generally anticipated. Perth defeated South Fremantle, East Fre- mantle beat Subiaco, but West Perth created a surprise by finishing well in front of North Fremantle. This result places &nbsp; East Fremantle and North Fremantle once &nbsp; again on a par for the premiership, and brings both clubs within eight points of the Perth Club, which was rather fortunate yes- terday. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
GREENBUSHES LEASES. "X-RAY" REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
GREENBUSHES LEASES. "X-Ray" Replies. "X-Ray" writes : My letter, which has sent the progenitor of the Green bushes Mining and Water Supply Syndicate, and the person who has, according ta himself, the honor (bless us) to claim friendship with Mr. A. E. Morgans, fuming, was written by me spontaneously, and without reference in any manner to the local smelter authorities or their employees. It was not, as Mr. Clarth, showing his Irish extraction, so elegantly puts it, "an attempt to bespatter with mad honest people as a last expiring kick." It dispassionately drew attention to the Mining Registrar's remarks anent illegal collussion presumably between those in high places. The charge, if any, was his, not mine. And I am not now to be diverted from the public purpose I then had in view by the attempted intimidation of anyone. I am wanting that honest administration of the law he says he so ardently desires, and I will take up my plain but apparently unpalatable tale where I left off, and...
WEST PERTH [?]. N. FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
WEST PERTH v. N. FREMANTLE. Teams representing the above clubs met &nbsp; on the Association Ground, Perth yesterday. &nbsp; Craig, who is preparing for his fight with Joe Doherty, was absent from the North ranks, while Orr and Williams were not playing for the West. West won the toss and kicked riverwards, having first advan- tage of a fair breeze. The train from Fre- &nbsp; mantle was late in arriving, and this caused some delay. West forced on the bounce, Cross and Hoskings figuring well. Thomas and Goddard returned on behalf of North. Wildy forwarded, but Pearce marked and passed to Wakely. Mitchell missed a &nbsp; chance of marking, and Messer sent well down. Smart work in front, and McNamara &nbsp; got a free kick, from which West's first behind resulted. Give and take play followed. Mitchell was awarded a free kick, from which Wildy marked. Chaplin showed prominently, and a few minutes afterwards Allen tried, a behind only resulting. Pl...
S. FREMANTLE [?]. PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
S. FREMANTLE v. PERTH. &nbsp; There were a fair number of spectators &nbsp; present on the Fremantle Oval yesterday afternoon to witness this contest. The ground was in fair order, but a trifle slippery owing to the new grass growing up. Perth put forward a strong team, the only notable alteration in it being an old player in Bailey Jackson, who took the place of Tom Whelan, who was unable to play. Morton, Duggan, &nbsp; &nbsp; and Goodenough stood down froom South's &nbsp; ranks and Wright, Lampe, and Davis were &nbsp; included in their place. South Fremantle obtained first score, a behind being placed to their credit through &nbsp; the medium of a kick from the ruck by &nbsp; Leeder. This was followed by another minor point, and then Perth asserted themselves. Clarke obtained the leather and endeavored &nbsp; to pilot it between the South goal-sticks, but missed by a few inches, a behind result- ing. Edmondson...
EAST FREMANTLE [?]. SUBIACO. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
A small attendance assembled on the North Fremantle Oval yesterday afternooon to witness this match. East brought a full team on to the ground but were minus the service of Tyson, Poletto and Palmer. Subiaco team was the same as on the pre- vious Saturday. The visitors had a strong wind in their favor for the first quarter. East started in the aggression and scored a behind. Suby. put in some good work and transferred the play to the other end. Some in and out play in front of the blue and &nbsp; white's goal followed. Gillies eventually &nbsp; got a mark close in and notched a goal to &nbsp; Suby. As the result of some good play by Chadwick and Christie, Clarke got the ball and passed to Keenan, who punted East &nbsp; first goal. From this till the bell rang the play was all in East's territory. Quarter- time scores— &nbsp; East Fremantle, 1.1 (7 points). Subiaco, 1.3 (9 points). &nbsp; In the second quarter, with the wind in &...

CRICKET. AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN IN ENGLAND. THE SURREY MATCH. LONDON, SATURDAY. The Australians commenced a match against Sussex at Brighton on Wednesday. The weather was fine and the wicket good.

The innings was then declared closed. Following are the scores:— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; AUSTRALIA. First Innings. &nbsp; Trumper, b Relf ... 21 &nbsp;...
LATE SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
The W. A.T.C. committee has wisely re- solved to eliminate selling races from its New Year meeting. This is a step in the &nbsp; right direction. These events, in which the winner is "found" before the candi- dates go on to the course, ought never to be included in a headquarter's programme, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; and sportsmen will appreciate the decision &nbsp; of the committee. &nbsp; The governing hody has also taken another step in the right direction, namely, the increase of the amounts given to minor place horses. This has often been &nbsp; advocated, and strong reasons advanced &nbsp; in support thereof. The sums allo- &nbsp; cated to place-getters has always been small, and has offered no encouragement to owners, who naturally saw no gain in having their horses ridden out for a paltry "tenner," while at the same time incurring a penalty &nbsp; in the shape of increase...
TO THE SPORTING [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
Dear Sir,—Will you kindly permit me, through the medium of your valuable sporting columns, to sincerely thank Messrs. E. J. Williamson, T. Sampson, E. Lyne, A. German, "Squash," W. Derbyshire, E. W. Moberly, A. Gordon, and H. Hawkins for their generosity and large-heartedness in promoting and subscribing with my numer- ous friends to a fund to enable me to defray the expenses incidental to my recent illness. The material assistance I have received from the liberality of my friends has tided me over what might have been a trying time, and I am happy to state that I am rich in the possession of friends, who have proved themselves by their many expressions of good-will to be of the stamp that makes a man feel that life is work living. Again thanking my many friends,—I am, yours very sincerely, Alick Scott. Perth, 31st July, 1902.
MELBOURNE NOTES. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 August 1902
MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. &nbsp; &nbsp; McDonald's string—Wakeful, Revenue, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Kinglike, the three-year-olds Bullion, Min- strel, and Irwell, and his Maribyrnong Plate candidates, Bill of Malton and Scottish King—have arrived at Caulfield from Mor- dialloe, and will in future be trained there. Hickenbotham is, apparently, going to Sydney with Footbolt, who has been backed for the Epsom Handicap. The Adelaide horse looks well, though he is not being &nbsp; given very searching work. During the week Lieutenant Bill and &nbsp; Flagship have been supported for the Caulfield Cup at 100's to 4. The Idler will leave for Sydney on August 19 to run in the Epsom and Metro- politan, in which he is nicely treated. The steeplechaser, Mystery, is working steadily, but it is doubtful whether he has quite got over his fall in the Flemington National Steeple. Strata Florida, the Melbourne Cup favorite, has improved during the winte...
