PERTB POLICE COURT. -* ißefore Messrs. Jas. Cowan anä Geo. Randell, J.P.'s) WEDNESDAY. THOMAS WHITTON WILLIAMS surrendered to his bail, and was charged, on remand, with unlawfully inflicting grevions bodily harm on William Parrett Bretnall. Mr. Haynes for the prosecutor, and Mr. Stevens for the defendant. The following evidence was taken : Dr. Scott deposed : The prosecutor, Mr. Bretnall came to me on the evening of the 24th. He was bleeding freely from a severe wound on the left ear, the cartilage of which was divided nearly in two from the top to the bottom. His neck appeared to be swol- len on one side. He had also sustained a fracture of the metacarpal bone of the little finger, and a big bruise on the left knee. They were all very nasty wounds. That on the head was serious, andv must have been caused by a severe blow. The axe handle produced would have to be used with great force to produce such a wound. There are blood stains on the handle. The prosecutor was in a very weak st...

The Mother's Interpretation. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

The Mother's Interpretation. There is a place in Lincoln County, not far from Augusta, which contains more eccentric- ities than any other town in Maine. It was here that I ran across a coffin maker, who paints his coffins red and blue, a few months ago. In this community died the miser at whose funeral the Augusta minister had to wait while the undertaker went out to hunt for mourners. A woman of this same stripe lives in the town. She is " nearer " than Barkis was. Her daughter did not get half enough to eat, «nd became so emaciated that some of her friends thought she was dying of consumption and had a doctor to visit her. " She needs no medicine. The only thing die needs is nourishment," said the doctor. " What does the doctor mean by nourish- ment?" asked the girl (who is as ignorant as she is unfed) after the doctor went away. "He must mean exercise," replied the mother.

A Return Thrust. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

A Return Thrust. It is related of the Pria COBS Metternich that ata great reeeption in Vienna sh« acci- dentally dropped from her mouth a false tooth, and did not hesitate to make her loss known with that frankness so characteristic to her. The fashionable world present interested in- terested itself vainly in seeking the tooth. Furniture was moved about, curtains were shaken, the floors swept ; but the tooth could not be found. A few days afterwards the il- lustrious lady received a package aid a let- ter. The letter, which was anonymous, an- nounced aB contained in the package, the missing tooth. The pa kage indeed contain- ed a tooth ; but it was the tooth of an oz. Though the letter was unsigned, the princess was confident that she knew who was its author-a sooial rival; and to the lady she believed guilty she wrote-" I knew that you felt for me the greatest friendship j bntl never until now would have believed that your affection would lead you so far as to have one of your own...

EMIGRANTS FOR WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

MIGRANTS FOR WESTERN AUSTRALIA. On Thnrsday morning at the courteous invitation of Mr. Charles Bethell; I ac- companied that gentleman to the Albert Bocks to see the Yeoman start for Fre- mantle. AB she lay there iu the dock in close proximity to the " sea-monsters " of the P. & O. and Orient lines, the Yoe- man appeared a vessel of modest dimen- sions. But au examination of her decks and storage room showed that she -if I may so "feminize," Yeoman--were large enough to carry a considerable cargo and many passengers to y«ur side of the globe. There was the inevitable confusion which prevails on board prepar- atory to the weighing of the anchor but I had time to run round the cabins, and say a few words to the young gentlemen who are going out as surveyois for tho West Australian Land Corporation, and who will I trust provo of service to Messrs.

SCRAPS. THE SHAPE OF A TEAPOT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

S C B A P S. . THE SHAPE OF A TEAPOT. j Perhaps the most ill-used domestic utensil in the hands of the modern potter is the Tory domestic teapot. It has been tortured into every possible shape, from a China mandarin sitting on his haunches to an elephant with an upturned trunk to form the spout, his tail being antithetically used to form the handle. The grotesque is good as a joke, but ? the fun is lost when it is applied to articles of I utility. Now, the teapot is a utensil, and utensils have their primary existence in easy use. The use of a teapot is for the quickest decoction of tea with the least loss of heat. An instant's reflection will tell the thinker that he would obtain the largest amount of oontents with the least amount of radiation by the use of a sphere ; and, if we examine the ordinary teapot of China or Japan, made for native use, we shall find that it approach- es as nearly a spherioal form as it is possible to obtain without fracture in burning. Into one side of t...

RECEIPTS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

EECEIPTS. How TO PEESEEVE MILK*-Pour the milk into a bottle, aud place the vessel up to its neck in a saucepanfnl of water, which is then to be put on the fire and allowed to boil for a quarter of an hour. The bottle is now to be removed from the water and carefully closed with a good and tightly fitting cork, so as to render it as air- tight as possible. Milk which has been pre- served by this process has been kept for more than 12 months without turning sour. Milk may also be preserved by putting a table- spoonful of horseradish, Bcraped in shreds, into a panful of milk. When milk thus treat- ed is kept in a cool place, it will be found to keep perfectly good for several days in hot weather. BEEF OMELETTE.-Pour half a pint of rich beef stock, or half a teaspoonful of beef ex- tract mixed with a cup of boiling water over a cup of bread rubbed to small crumbs. Season highly and let it stand in a warm oven for fifteen minutes. Make an omelette of six well-beaten eggs; add the soaked ...

HOUSEWORK. "When a woman marries she has a house to 3reep ; and having once accepted the position of housekeeper, if not fit for it, she should, says an exchange, proceed at once, and cheer folly, to fit herself. You would despise your- self if, tossed into a great sea, yon made no straggle for a boat, a buoy,for the shore. So When you find yourself almost overwhelmed with worries and care, find the steak ie burn- ing, the baby fallen out of bed, and your hus- band wants a sudden button sewed on-hold the babe with one arm, turn the steak with the other, and ask John to bring yon a needle - {«yaad thread.

WORK TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

WOKE TABLE. Very effective and pretty work is much in j vogue at present. Choose a nice pattern of cretonne, cut out the flowers or figures, tak- ! ing care not to cut them too close to the flower or it will be liable to fray out. Place these artistically on any foundation, black velvet is most effective, tack them evenly on, and after all are properly arranged, work all round them in herring bone or any other fancy stitch. This work makes a handsome looking mantel, borders, and brackets. BIBBED KNITTING WITH Two PINS.-In knitting with two pins to produce a rib, you must knit two and purl two alternately. In tho alternate rows you must reverse the work by purling the knitted and knitting the purled stitches. Sometimes ribbed knitting is worked alternately, one stitch knit and one purl. For wide ribs three knit and three purl are sometimes worked.

Liability of Husbands. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Liability of Husbands. ! - A point of importance to confiding' tradesmen, and liberal husbands who have expensive wives was recently discussed before, and decided by, a New Zealand magistrate. From our files we learn that fk police sergeant, stationed at a country town, apart from Iiis wife, was summoned by a Canterbury firm for £43, represent- ing the specific value of drapery goods supplied to the sergeant's wife while he ; was residing up the country. So far the case appears simple enough, and the firm no doubt calculated the £43 as a safe debt. But see how the Court looked at the matter. It was proved in evidence that the sergeant was most liberal to his wife in money matters-more than liberal, indeed, he appears to have been profuse, consider- ing his income. The presiding magistrate took all this into consideration, and said if the husband and wife were not living to- gether, and that it was proved that he made her a suitable allowance for her maintenance, he was .not liable f...

Sir Charles Dilke. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Sir Charles Dilke. The divorce case of Mrs. Crawford will long hs remembered for the strangeness of the decision, legal as it undoubtedly ig, and the fatal influence it will in all pro- bability have en the fortunes of one of the most prominent of England's rising poli- ticians, we might almost say rising premiers. Mr. Justice Butt held that the evidence,abnostwholly depending onacon fessiou of Mrs. Crawford's to her husband as to her improper relations with Sur Charles Dilke, was sufficient to establish her guilt, but presented " no shadow of a> case against Sir Charles," that is to say, the exact evidence which convicted the one, failed to déchire the guilt of her partner. In reading the COSM no one catt tail to be struck with a most unpleasant susoicion that there was an understanding between the counsel for Mr. Crawford and for Sir Charles, that the latter was to ba screened and shielded with ail the adroitness that the powers and ingenuity of these able lawyers were equal to...

The Western Mail. PERTH, SATURDAY, APRIL 3,1886. AN EARLY WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

P.EBTH, SAIUBDAY, APBLL 3,18B6. AN EARLY WINTER. ÁFXEK a summer which the oldest (white) inhabitant pronounces to have been one of the most trying upon record, the coolnoss of approaching autumn appears at last to have de- scended upon us. The rain that fell so abundantly in the middle of this week, will have greatly chilled the surface of the ground, while the cold nights will still further help to secure us against the recurrence of such tropical warmth as was experienced so recently as only last Sunday week. We may therefore fairly congratulate ourselves that the torrid infliction of the summer of 1885-86 is a thing to be counted of the past. Aud now that the winter is at hand it is ad- visable to give careful heed as to the use that we may put it to. . It is ")a moot point whether the Western Aus- tralian winter is improving or no, that is to say it is questioned, not whether we have more rain than the settlers of old enjoyed, for the average seems to be very much what it always...

Bracelets of old coins are now very fashion able ; but the attempt to beat a pair of hand- cuffs, for real durability, will always be e failure. " Not going to church, are you, Bill P" said one clerk on Christmas morning. "Come along for a walk and get up an appetite, as you always used to do, old man." Replied the other, " That's just it ; Fd be sure to come back hungry, and that don't pay now, I've got a wife. So I'll just go to church." And he went, te think of his happy bachelor days throughout the sermon. " Why do you call it the Darby ?" inquired a Cockney the other day of a quiet friend who had been alluding to the race for the Blue Ribbon of the Turf. "There is no h'a in Derby-DERBY." "Indeed, lam eorry to hear it," answered the friend. "What on earth will the poor farmers do ?" " Sorry ? what yer sorry for ?" exclaimed the Cockney. " And what's farmers got to do do with it ?"
