The Connexion of Drunkenness with Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

--;--«---~ Tlie Connexion of Drunkenness with Oriuie. _ Last week we republished a speech de- livered by Sir Henry Wrenfordsley, our late Chief Justice, ou the relation between drunkenness andU crime. Those who re- member His Honor's judicial utterances when presiding at our criminal sessions will be aware that this is no new text for that genial but garrulous dispenser of justice. At the same time, this connex- ion of drunkenness and crime is a branch of the question which seems to want closer investigation tliau it has yet receiv- ed. There is no doubt that it, may be said with rauch truth that the callous sel- fishness, the deadness to the higher tastes and feelings, the ruin of ambitious car- eers, and, above all, the domestic misery and destitution caused by intemperance, together constitute so heavy a bill of in- dictment against this vice, that we need not inquire too nicely how far it is dir- ectly conducive to offences which the law takes notice of. Still, its tendency to e...

Easter Encampments. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Easter Encampments. ' Judging from the fact of Eastertide being so near, and the military authorities ¿having ao far as we can leim made no stir m the matter, it seems improbable that a volunteer camp of exercise will be ^(keld this year. At any rate, it is hardly ^Likely that it will be held during the Easter holidays. That many persons will regard rthis as a minor misfortune there is no doubt; but, those who play the chief part at such 'spectacles,- the volunteers themselves, will probably not greatly repine. It -appears there are many difficulties in the Way of holding such a camp as would be -creditable to the forces, and give them -even a few days thorough initiation into the routine and discipline of camp life. Lost year, although the men gained an ?amount of insight into it, which, of course was most useful, many circumstances -combinad to prevent as satisfactory. -amount of work being got through os . might have been done. Some of the j volunteers were unable to get into cam...

Magisterial Appointments. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Magisterial Appointments. It cannot be gainsaid that magisterial appointments are, under any circumstances, matters of much importance. In the pe- culiar circumstances of a youug country like this a careless or indiscriminate ap- pointment of magistrates may be fraught with serious consequences. Here, it is true, magisterial appointments do not come within the sphere of political pa- tronage, as they do frequently in the neighbouring colonies. For this reason, our system being free from party influ- ence is less liable to party favoritism than if these appointments were rendered sub- servient to political favour. Justice holds equal balances, witli covered eyes, but the political deity keeps his eyes open, and too often looks askance, lt is perhaps easier to state in what fitness for the position of a magistrate does not consist than to state in what it does consist. There is no definite standard of qualification for this important department of public ser- vice. But, although no in...

ALBANY TURF CLUB. ANNUAL RACE MEETING. (FROM THE ALBANY MAIL.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

ALBANY TURF CLUB. -«a. ANNUAL BACE MEETING. (PEOM THE ALBANY MAIL.) The annual race meeting of the Alban; Turf Club was held on the Eace Course i week ago. The weather was fine, bu rather hot about mid-way. At an early hon the town presented an animated appearance from the number of settlers in from the coun try and making preparations to start. Al the available buggies were in requisition those plying for hire were altogether inade qnate to meet the calls made upon them, i number of the officers from the Russian man of-war not being able to obtain a conveyanci to take them to the Course, though Captaii Lang, and four officers, through the cour tesy of Inspector Hare, were taken out bj the police horses. A large number of eques trians and people on foot also showed up making a total of about 400 people on th< ground. Most of the races were well con tented, and a few of the finishes were verj close. No accident occurred during the races but we regret to hare to recorc that...

PERTH v. FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

PERTH v. FREMANTLE. The proposal for a match between a com- bined Perth team and Fremantle has been received with general f avonr amongst crick- eters. It is felt, however, that the selection of the team should not be left to the Com- : mittee of the Association, ' but that the duty i should be gives to some person who is not a player. This difficulty could easily be over- come. The appointment of selector might with safety be given to Mr. D. Hyman, who, by the manner in which he has acted as um- pire, has testified his knowledge of the game, while at the same time he must be in a bet- ter position than any one else for forming a judgement of the ability of the local players. There is no one outside of the clubs so likely to perform the duty of selector so satisfac- torily as Mr. Hyman. The duties of a Match Selection Committee are now always performed in Melbourne and Sydney by one man, this being found to be the best method of chosing a team.

Best Feed For Hens. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Best Feed For Heus. The following remarks upon the best food for hens are taken from the Bee and Poultry Magazine :-Considerable difference should be made in the feed of poultry, according to their breed. The Brahmas, Cochins, and their crosses are quiet lazy sorts, and con- sequently fatten more easily than such as ore fond of roving around at considerable dis- tance from the house, such as Leghorns, Hamburgs, Game, etc. Little corn or Indian meal should be fed to tho former, except in. the coolest weather, and then we only mado it about half their rations. In spring and autumn we give them all they ore inclined to eat during the day, a pudding made of one third Indian meal and two-thirds wheat-bran, with a sprinkle of whole oats, late in the afternoon on the ground in the yard or near the house, for them to scratch and pick up just before going to roo6t. In summer wo make the pudding only one-fourth Indian meal and three-fourths wheat-bran. In this about half a gill of pure strong...

Milk Fever in Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Mük Fever in Cows. in the Breeder's Gaaette," the Hon. T. C. Jones some time since thns related bis ex. periettoe of milk fever in cows:-«My first I experience with this much-dreaded malady I was with a case occurring in our own herd, ! ! thirteen years ago, -a full account of which ; j waB published at the time. The treatment 1 wa«, in substance, that recommended by i Robert M'Clure, at that time a veterinary I practitioner in the city of Philadelphia, and the author of a very useful work on the dis- eases of horses, cattle, and sheep. The case I was a peculiar one, exhibiting the character- istics of the disease in its most malignant form. The cow was then seven years old, not in high condition, and seemed all right after calving-was fed on thin bran mash, which she seemed to relish, and milked about four or five hours after the birth of the calf. She had the same feed, with hay, the next morning, and at milking gave nearly three gallons besides what had been been taken by a stout...

NOTES FROM ETICUP. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

NOTES FROM ETÏCUP. j I wonder if the Kojonup Roads Board hare forgotten us altogether, or do they wish us to continue .travelling on our bush tracks up to our knees in slosh in winter and without a drink for a twenty mile stretch for man or beast in the summer. One half of the teams which pay cart li- censes to the Board from here do not travel more than 15 miles on the main road and others not more than 5 miles, so that some local return for our money is certainly due to us. We have to travel 30 miles over a bush track before we can j reach the Albany road at Górdon bridge. This track was cleared in 1869 by a few of the settlers, among whom were Mr. Graham and Mr. P. Garratty,at their awn expense and a few pounds were subscribed fora well about 10 miles from the Gordon. This was sufficient accommodation for the few teams which travelled the road in. those days, but now that there is a large increase of traffic it is useless except for a month or two in the earlier part of summer.

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

CHAPTER IV. At noon of the 17 Février two figures were ascending on the car of" the high elevator at Cooey Island» They were Jacques and a friend. The friend had had a little friendly înis ui.derstanding with the bank of which* he was cashier, and gladly consented, to a tour for his health. , ^ The two men had provisions, - -huge cheese-knife, and 401b. of humor- ous papers. When they reached the--', top of the elevator they looked straight up and commenced to laugh. They read and laughed, they laughed and. read. People say, " They are mad."" For five days and five nights they laughed. At the end of that time they had no weight. Their gravity was completely overcome. They could ¿ float in space. With a glad shout they sprang out into the ether, and began to paddle like mad men for the moou. On and on they sped, praying their respects -, to Big and Little Bear, the Seal, the Walrus, and other animals in the? celestial menagerie. They said to a huge star, " Who are you ?" ; *'Tranus,"...

CHARIER III. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

CHARIER III. For days Jacques tasted nothing. He pored night and day ever works; on astronomy. Memory and appetite alike failed. He even forgot to charge a client $5, under the head of advice,, for asking the time on the steps of the city hall. One day the title of an old book on an old bookstand caught his eye t "The Moon, by Bjornbog Skijajoghog,. the great Norwegian astronomer." ! He purchased the book and fell to , devouring it like a madman. Suddenly a yellow paper fell to the ground. It bore the following cipher u " Noora, eht ot yaw sih eltfdap dna ecaps ni miws nae efcT. ytivarg Ha sesoi sthgin evif dna syad evif rof sbgual ohw eno ynA." Jacques spent weeks over the riddle* One day when on the verge of mad- ness he happened to look backwards ; at it. All was clear in a second. Thc* riddle read : " Any one who laughs for five day», and five nights loses all gravity. He can swim in space and paddle his way? to the moon." " I shall succeed," said he.

CHAPTER II. A glorious full moon throws her splendid radiance o'er the palace of. Jondrette's papa in Fifth Avenue. The family bull-dog is pouring forth his soul in the back jard. A joung man kneels at the feet of Jondrette's papa. His hands are clasped in the lily white flipper of Jondrette. Jon<3 rette is weeping. In a short space of time she had shed four quarts of tears. To be more explicit, a gallon. Nothing would soften the heart of the old man. In vain they threaten- ed to commit suicide and other crimes. "Will nothing move your hard heart ? " gasped Jacques. " Yes, Monsieur, she is yours " A wild cry of joy broke from the lips of the happy pair, and rang, and re-echoed through the awful silence of the dark dungeon--ho, we mean through the richly furnished apart ment. (The fact is, we are getting: ^ this story mixed up with next week's romance, and beg the reader's pardon for the mistake.) " On one condition," continued the old man with a scornful laugh.

A TRIP TO THE MOON. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

A TRIP TO THE MOON. | CBATTEB I. j Jacques Courbeaudocq was a law- yer. He was a criminal lawyer. It is something difficult to distinguish which is the criminal and which the lawyer, but let that pass. Lawyers are men who collect claims on a 6 per cent basis. You get the 5 per cent-the lawyer gets the rest. Lawyers get more rest then any other class of professional men. Jacques had red hair. It was so fiery that the building inspector ordered him to wear a fire-escape down his back. The foregoing statement is poetic Ucease-that is, it is a lie. Jacques loved a beauteous maid named Jondrette. Jondrette's papa was a retired sausage manufacturer from Chicago. He had been knighted by the New York Genealogical Bureau on pay- ment of $40. The trinity of life to him was his pipe, cheese, and beer. Love for Jondrette caused Jacques's heart to beat wildly from morn to night. It beat so loudly as to annoy the rest of the boarders. But br all means let us avoid turn- ing this original remance ...

The governor also says: "That there has been an increase in the rainfall in Kansas is fully proved by the statistics of our -oldest meteorologists."

Cutting and Curing Clover. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Cutting and Curing Clover. Glover makes one of the most profitable winter fodders, and its value depends much " upon the method of handling it at harvest. -Clover has the greatest amount of nutriment - when cut in early blossom, but if grown with -tinothy, cut it when some of theeorliestblos ^ jftms just begin to turn. The timothy will ^oj then have the greatest weight, but it will make most excellent hay-better for feeding .young cattle and sheep than if left till later. Stock will eat more of it cut thus early than when cut later, and they will also do much better ; its nutriment is then easily digested, We have known calves and yearlings, in com . f ortable stables, to winter upon early cut hay In as fine condition as on later cut with a moderate feed of grain. Timothy is best when a single crop, cut just before or at tho üret blossom. After that its wood fibre in- creases very fast. Thc second part of the inquiry, concerning how much to cure clover, bas received some experimenta...

Conditions Necessary to 'Fixity of Type." [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Conditions Necessary to * Fixity of Type." We (Live Stock Journal) read and hear about pioneer breeders of our improved varie- ties of stock forming a type and fixing that type as the permanent property of their stock by sure hereditary transmission. It is ^ true that a new type may be produced by ^-skilful and persevering attention to certain laws of nature and to certain rules of prac- tice in artificial additions to nature, and that so strong a tendency to " breed true " may be established as to make the perpetuation of the type, under favouring circumstances a matter almost of certainty. But the favour- ing circumstances are necessary. The forms, sizes, colours, habits, and other properties of áninuÜB and plants are subject to modifica- tion, not by breeding only, but by food, climatic influences, and other circumstances of daily life,, and modifications effected by mirach circumstances become, in course of time, ^^.'Btm^hoteaitaiQr'tt those effected fey se?. lection or by cross...

Poisoned Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

Poisoned Dogs. Antidote writes to the Editor of the Aus- tralasian, Sir,-My attention has been direc- ted to this subject by reading Mr. B. Hep- burn's experience and treatment of dogs poi soned by strychnine. During the last 20 years I have cured a great number of dogs that had got baits poi- soned with strychine, and in nearly every case the treatment proved effectual, and as it is quite the opposite of that of Mr. B. Hep- burn's, it may be the means of saving the lives of some valuable dogs or other animals. My treatment was in giving emetics of one sort or other, and the two best I have tried were tobacco juice either prepared from the leaf or the American preparation for sheep dipping mixed with water, and the other dry salt thrown into the dog's mouth and washed down his throat with water. It is very difficult to give some dogs any- thing when Buffering from poison, and I have often hod to place a small piece of wood across the mouth, and fasten it at each end by a string draw...

The Cream Separator. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

The Cream Separator. James Feeban writes to the Leader. Sir, Beading* in your paper of last week the in- quiry asking to be informed respecting where the machine that separates the cream from the new milk can be supplied from, I beg to mention I am a very early dairy snbject (from the foundation of the colony), but by tho time my letter comes before your notice I hope it will be answered by a pen of more ability to offer a few observations upon' the working of the machine. It appeared to me to work accurately, but a little slow for a dairy of, say, 50 cows. The milk haB quite the same taste after the cream is taken from it, which astonished me very much, and the butter is of a better quality. It is moved by a horse power used for chaff cutting mach- ines, and is fed by the use of a tube supplied from any suitable vessel. The operating works are closely covered, and the inspectors can discern the cream falling through on one excavation and the milk coming out in an- other. The cost o...

The Evaporation of Tanks Checked by Oil. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

The Evaporation of Tanks Checked by Oil. "CEDIFTJS" in a series of papers contri- buted to the Leader on the conservation of water in Australia makes the suggestion, which is certainly novel in its application to the above subject, that the sqautter could use it for checking the evaporation from the tanks he has excavated. He says :-" There ia yet another way of entirely preventing evaporation although the circumstances un- der which it may be desirable to resort to it j will be of rare occurrence. It is to cover the surface oj the water with a thin film of vege- table oil--olive oil by preference, although cotton seed, sesame, rape, or any other oil of the same class may serve the purpose well. No matter how thin the film may be, evapo- ration from jtke surface will be entirely ob ! viated. There will be no loss at all. Oil j cast on the waters will spread a film over a j tempestuous sea, so that the surface of even i a large reservoir will be protected against the i action of the ...
