Ana would you believe it, I overslept the next morning a whole hour later than usual !"

Lord Norbury's Hospitality. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

lord Korbnry's Hospitality. Norbury, at one time Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas in Ireland, tras more noted for giving invitations than fer hospitality. His invitations were always to his country seat, Cabra, his town residence being inconveniently accessible. On one occasion an old couple were simple enough to believe the " Will you spend a week with me j at Cabra P " really meant what it expressed ; ] and, packing up the requisites for a visit, they presented themselves at the country house. Norbury received them with the blandest smiles, and in his presence of mind did not quail as the lady's maid, the band-boxes, the heavy imperial, and other indications of a protracted sojourn made their appearance. Eudiant with delight, he exclaimed-"My kind friends, my dear otd friends, this is so very like you! Now, no excuses-not a word ! I must positively insist on your staying to dinner."

A Story of the War. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

A Story of the War. Vanity Fair tells tlie following curious story:-"A" was a young man in a horse regiment who fell in love with "B," the daughter of an opulent merchant with a house in Bayswater. He grew tired of her, and when his regiment was ordered to the East, he left her without explanations. Be turning home with more dust than medals on his coat, ho dined and went to a ball, where "B" was the daintiest amongst the beauties. They danced, and she showed no resentment on the score of past faithlessness. Pressed by "A," she gave him an appointment at a certain church near her father's house, which had been their trysting place in other days. "A" went happily to his club, and his old friend, Major C-, offered him a cigar. " I met Lucy ' B ' this evening," said A, and he told hi's friend of the appoint ment she had given him. The major ex- pressed no surprise, but said that Lucy was a good and forgiving girl, for he knew what had gone before. A went to the church on the day named,...

Some Big Rentals. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Some Big Bentals. A retarn prepared by the " Land Agents Record " shows that there are 75 members of the new House of Commons who own more than 3,000 aores of land with a rental value of more than £3,000 a year. Two of the number own more than 100,000 acres ; three others more than 50,000 acres ; and the possessions of an additional seventeen exceed 10,000 aores. With respect to rentals, Sirj . John Ramsden heads the list with £181,000at year, and Sir John St. Aubyn comes next with £95,000, although it is understood tba Sir John enjoys a comparatively small share of this rental. Four other rentals exceed, £30,000, although Colonel King-Harman, who is included, certainly receives nothing like £30,000 now. The rentals of twenty, eight members run from £10,000 to £30,000 a year.

THOROUGHBREDS for WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

THOROUGHBREDS for WESTERN AUSTRALIA. Messrs. Harwood & Smith are import- ing three thoroughbreds which', with Tremando, will form the nucleus of their stud farm at Waugoug. Through Messrs. 0. Yuille & Co., of Melbourne, they have purchased the mares Drollery and Beeswax. Drollery was foaled in 1879, and is by Bethnal Creen-Badinage (imported, dam of Banter, winner of tue Adelaide Cup) bv Muscovite from Raillery, by Pantaloon from Banter (dam of Touch- stone, the sire of Newminster, who got Hermit.) She is, therefore, a lrighly bred mare, and should she emulate the wonder- ful career of Hermit in England, she will produce an excellent progeny. Bees- wax was foaled in 1880, and is by King Cole-Beeswing (sister to Tom Kirk and dam of Bolton Green, Santauella, and Ulalauine) by Ladykirk from Spa (im- ported, dam of Newminster) by Learning-1 ton from Santanella, by Newminster. She, also, it will be seen, is connected directly with some of the best racing ? strains. Both t...

John B. Gough. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

John B. Gough. The death of Mr. J. B. Gough, the well known temperance advocate, is announced. The Melbourne ¿ge writes: "Mr. Gough's death a cable message from our London correspon- dent, published this morning. Mr. Gough was a native of Sandgate, Kent, and had reached the age of 69 years, having been born in 1817. Like many others of the most most earnest and successful temperance re- formers, Mr. Gough, who emigrated to America at the age of twelve years, was, as a young man, of very intemperate habits, but when he was about 25 he took the pledge of abstinence, and soon began publicly to advo- cate the principle. His reputation as an orator spread through the United States and Canada, and reached. England, and in 1853 he accepted an invitation from the London Temperance Society to visit Great Britain for six weeks. The visit was protracted over two years, during which time he advocated the temperance cause. He visited England again in 1857, when he remained again for three years,...

Temperance Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Temperance Notes. The concert to be held next Friday, under the auspices of the City Temperance Cricket Club, promises to be a grand success. The programme in preparation, which will be cer- tainly a good one, cannot fail but command a full house. The Juvenile Temple I.O.G.T., will hold its first meeting this (Saturday) evening, in the Rechabite Hall, Wellington Street, at 7.30 o'clock, where, we understand, a huge num- ber of children will present themselves for initiation. Parents, friends, and the public generally are cordially invited to attend. The fact that Bro. R. Cooke has been elected the first Superintendent, is a sufficient guaran- tee of its future success. It is the earnest wish of the Superintendent and Committee, that parents and guardians will not hesitate to allow their offspring and wards to join this Temple, in the hope that they will grow np good and true members of society, and be free to their lives' end from the slavish habits whiölv Imv^^^^ niatâon will'be^te...

Disappointed Immigrants. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Disappointed Immigrants. Referring to some correspondence that has taken place in the public journals of this and of another colony, South Australia, arising out of statements put forward by some disappointed immigrants from the latter place, it has been very clearly demonstrated that there was little or uo truthfulness in the charge. Nothing indeed could be inore suicidal than to hold out false inducements to p*eopie to come here. Much as we require au accession of industrial and contented colonists, we do not want to locate in our midst a discon- tented population. Of course, in West- ern Australia, as in every other country, circumstances vary. Trade is brisk or dull; work is abundant or deficient:' money is plentiful or scarce. It may not answer the purpose of skilled mechanics and artizans to throw up a good employ- ment to come here. But, in spite of all disappointment, it still remains an irre- fragable fact that there are many people in the old country and in the sister colo...
