Screened their Eyes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

Screeued their Eyes. One of the passengers on a St. Paul train was a man neither young nor old. His face waB youthful, but his hair was turning gray. His skin was bright and smooth, but there was a queer look upon his face. He sat gaz- ing out of the window'motionless and rigid. His eyes rarely winked, and Mb gaze was an empty stare. Presently he turned, for the first time in an hour, and reached into a. traveller's grip, which lay in a seat beside him. Prom this valise he pulled a doll, large and pretty, with'delicately painted face, golden hair, bright blue eyes, and a hand- some little gown. The other passengers looked and wondered. Then the man clasped the doll to his breast, pressed the china cheek againKt"Tüs7Tñésea its painted lips, smoothed its flaxen hair, gazed into its glass eyes, ana talked to the ears which could not hear. The other passengers tittered and began to make, remarks. There was a grin upon every face and a jest upon every tongue. But just then the brakeman c...

SCRAPS. HOW TO MAKE GOOD COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

SCBAPS. How to Make Good Coffee. j You published from the Atlanta Constitu- tion a Georgia woman's recipe for makin? coffee. It's nonsense. Her coffee is " allowed to boil awhile." Thus she gets rid of the fine aroma and extracts the tannin, which is not healthful. Now, let any woman Who has not a reputation for fine coffee try this re- cipe. Buy the best coffee and grind it to the consistency of ordinary cornmeal. Into a French teapot put an ounce of coffee for every perron. One pound of coffee will moke sixteen cups, and no more. Have everything clean, and as soon as the water in the tea- kettle begins to boil moisten the coffee gently, and leave it to soak and swell for three minu- tes ; then add a little more water ; don't be in a hurry ; continue to add water until you have obtained not more than a large coffee capful of the extract. If carefully done the entire virtue of the coffee will be in the cup- ful of liquor at the end of five minutes. For four persons, use a quart of p...

WORK TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

WOEK TABLE/ There was very lately a craze in middle class society among the lady workers for Re- poussé work. This is the doing of .useful or- namental work in brass. The-work is easy, although it may not appear so. The manner of working is as follows :-Draw the design. in ink on sheet paper, then lay the brass on a lump.of lead. The pattern is gone over lightly .with a "tracer" (sold for the pur-, pose). .BepBat this until the pattern is distinct. When the outline is finished a punch is required to hammer in the back; ground. It will be readily seen ibat the pro- cess is not a difficult one. Brackets, trays,, and such like are all easily made; land quit«-, within the range of female capacity.

FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

FASHIONS. The very 1>est opportunities of seeing what fashion decrees for assays "Iris" in the Leader are provided in the form of the peri- odical shows held by the various large drap- ery establishments in the metropolis. The newest and most stylish goods are displayed to the best advantage in spaoiouB showrooms, and attendants of both sexes are exceedingly obliging in answering all inquiries as to price, &c. ; and here I may remark that there is an absence of that unpleasant pressing to buy, which is met with in many nouses of a lower standard. LadieB enjoy these shows of fashion, when they are made attractive by means of courtesy and obliging manners, no less than by means of decoration, &e. Never did the large showrooms look to better ad- vantage than on Wednesday, the opening day when thronged by gaily dressed ladies deep in the business ot inspecting the new season's goods. Artistic taste is always noticeable in the arrangement of the various depart- ments i...

Farm and Station. A Remedy for Bog Poisoning. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

itam^j^M^^^ A Remedy for Bog Poisoning. Benj. Hepburn writes to the Editor of the Australasian ;-Sir,-Beading your reply to ia correspondent respecting snake-bites and its remedies,, it oocuxred to me that my ex- periences in the treatment of another kind of a poisoning which is of not infrequent occur- rence hero, especially with animals, may prove valuable to the public generally. It refers to the poisoning by strychnine, end has proved effectual in three cases at different times when valuable greyhounds of -ly stud had accidentally taken that deadly poison and were already in convulsions when treated. In each case I applied a remedy which I read years ago had saved the life of a shepherd in the far-off bush, viz.. sweet (salad) oil first, castor oil afterwards. I gave as a dose a whole small bottle of salad oil to the dog affected, and after one or two hours I administered the half of a small bottle of castor oil, and in each case the dog .was able to walk about next day.

RIFLE MATCH.—M.R.V. V- F.R.V [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

I RIFLE MATCH.--M.R.v;._ F- F.R.V The first of a series of rifle shooting matches, which have been arranged for between the Metropolitan and the Fre- mantle Rifle Volunteers, was fired off on the Fremantle Range on Saturday after- noon. Each team consisted of ten men, with an ammunition allowance of twenty rounds per man, exclusive of sighting - shots. The distances fired from were 560 yards and 600 yards, and the regulation targets and scoring were used. It will be seen from the scores, which we give below, that the Fremantle volunteers won by 28 points, they making in all 587, or 58*70 per man, as against 559, or 55-00 Î>er nura, for Perth. The match excited ittle interest, there bein? but few spec- tators on the range. The next match will probably be fired at Perth, on Satur- day, the 17th instant, when the distances will be 700 yards and 800 yards, aud a subséquent match at 900 yards and 1,000 yards will be fired a fortnight later. Appended are the scores : Fremantle Rifles. ...

THE HANDICAP YACHT RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886

THE HANDICAP YACHT BACE. At a committee meeting of the Perth Yacht Club on Wednesday evening, a question was raised by Mr. Gugeri as to whether under Bule 17 Tuesday's race should not bo declar ed void. This rule reads as follows : " In any Bailing raoe if the leading boat shall be unable to pass the winning post be- fore sunset, the race sholl be run again on some future day to be decided upon by the Committee." This difficulty arose through the boats be- ing late in starting. As it was they did not get away until 3*20,and it was then impossible for them to get in before sundown. The leading boat, Mr. Pether's Blue Bell, was 8min. llsec. after sunset in passing the winning point. There was no intention on the part of any of the competitors, we under, stand, to raise any objection to the prizes being paid as won. As the subject was broached, it was necessary for the Committee to consider it and eventually they deoided to " disqualify" the race, and leave the question of paying the p...

Hyman, Greville and Forster-appointed by the Cricket Association to chose the mem- bers of a team to represent Perth against Fremantle have performed the work allotted to them.

It is quite likely that exception may be taken to the team, as opinions vary greatly as to the form of cricketers. The aim of the committee was to get a good all round team, one that would be likely to make a stand at the bat- ting crease, while at the same time possessing both bowling and fielding ability.

THE INDIAN AND COLONIAL j EXHIBITION. FEOM THE WEST AUSTEAXIAN. From our recent report of the meeting, held on the 30th ot last month, it ap- pears tbat the labours of the Com- mission for the Colonial and Indian Exhibition are drawing to a close. "We look for the promised Report of Progress with some satisfactory an- ticipation, as we feel assured that i those labours have been neither stinted nor inefficient. As, however, that report will be supplementary to the one presented to His Excellency the Governor in November lust, a gene- ral retrospect of the results of the labours of the Commission cannot fail we think, to interest our readers. We can, of course, only notice the more important exhibits. And first we may express satisfaction that the three principal staple products of the colony will be well represented. The pro- ducts of our forests will up pear in a trophy of selected timber, as well as in the forms and proportions required for .manufacturing and constructive purposes...

It was with much regret we heard on Saturday that we are to lose our new B.M., Mr. W. D. Cowan, who lias been offered, and has accepted, the same position at Bunbury. He could not, of course, do otherwise, Bunbury baing a permauent appointment, while this is only acting. During the short time Mr. Cowan has been here he has become most popular, both at Newcastle and at Northam. He is courteous and g »lite to all, anda most just magistrate, e was, I understand, taking steps to remove the many nuisances so often complained of in the town by compelling the municipality to do their duty.
