COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) FREMANTLE, Oct. 25. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 October 1880
-7#r -' (From our own correspondents.) FREMANTLE, Oct. 25. On Thursday last the Fremantle Rifle Volun- teers celebrated the anniversary of the formation of the corps, by prize firing. The men assembled at the armoury at 9 a.m., and the bugle having sonnded the "fall in" the usual inspection followed, after which the company, mustering in all about 65 men, marched through t*ie town, and, returning to the place of rendezvous, were separated into squads, when Nos. 4 aud 5 marched off to the range to begin the 'day's competition. The merchants' and storekeepers not only showed their appreciation, as usual, of the Volunteer movement by their liberality in the giving of prizes and money to be competed for, but also closed their places of business on the occasion, so that every Volunteer might have an opportunity of taking part in the con- test. The'prevalence however of that disagree- able epidemic, influenza, prevented a full muster. Each man fired 2(J shots. There was nothing remarkable...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, OCT. 29, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 October 1880
THE WEST ASST&aJJAN. VioiiANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, OCT. 29,1880. ATTACKS upon our system of public educa- tion, such as those which have lately been made, are in our opinion extremely unwise. In view of the fierce storms of religi- ous passion which the education ques- tion almost always raises-storms which in more than one of the neighbouring colonies are raging now with unabated violence, it would certainly seem advisable, when a fairly satisfactory solution of the difficulty has been found, to leave the mat- ter for the time being alone. Our Educa- tion Act is by no means perfect. It is easy to point out flaws which it would be desir- able to remedy. But, taking it as a whole, it is doing good work. It has brought ele- mentary instruction within reach of the great majority of West Australian chil- dren, at a cost to the State which is not ex- cessive. And at the same time it has, by a compromise, avoided that burning religious question, a re-opening of which it is impo...

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 October 1880
WESTERN AUSTRALIAN COURT. The commisioners for Western Australia (tbe.4i'gns says) have realised the advantage of having their court nicely decorated and their exhibts well arranged. The have erect- ed a wooden archway in front, on which is painted a design eminently appropriate to what was once best known as the Swan River Settlement-a black swan. The design is also portrayed on a streamer of yellow silk above the archway with the words 'Australie Occidentale' and ' Western Aus- tralia ' inscribed on the opposite sides. The walls of the court are very elegantly decorated, being tinted a pale lilac, and divided into oblong compartments, bordered with stripes of green and salmon colour. Along the top of the walls is a blue and gilt border. The most conspicuous object in the court is a hexagonal canopy erected to show jarrah timber in the rough.' It is constructed of ordinary timber painted blue, and has pillars of jarrah saplings cut into blocks and partly planed and polished, to let...

IS THE "HAMBURG" LOTTERY A "HUMBUG?" TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 October 1880
IS THE "HAMBURG" LOTTERY A "HUMBUG?" To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-As the IVeit Australian newspaper is now largely circulated, your opinion on the Hamburg lottery speculation would be very> acceptable to the public of this district. The main points in the venture is not, shall we, or shall we not, succeed in drawing prizes, but is there any guarantee that it is a really genuine and a legitimate transaction backed up by, and on account of, the German Gov- ernment ? Or is it merely a ' clap-trap,' a swindle to draw the money out of the pockets of the unwary by unprincipled speculators. The prospectus has been sent to almost every house in the colony, in the form of an advertisement, in the Australian Star newspaper. This saves the company (or the German Government) the postage, and is a bright .idea to begin with. Do you really think this is a speculation of the Government of Germany at Hamburg, as represented, or is it all humbug ? If you can find space for this in y...
ANNIVERSARY PRIZE FIRING. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 October 1880
ANNIVERSARY PRIZE FIRING. The anniversary of the formation of the M.R. Volunteers was celebrated by prize-firing, at the butts on Mount Eliza, on Tuesday last. It is rather surprising to ascertain the apathetic manner in which the metropolitan public view the annual assemblage of our citizen 'soldiers at these anniversary rifle matches.'' This apathy is th« "more "noteworthy when, wë consider the praiseworthy enerby displayed by the volunteers themselves. ( Ort Tuesday, excepting the juvenile element, ' which, as usual, mustered in great force/, there were probably not a hundred bona ^aVspectators upon Mount Eliza. But, though .ih'èrcitizens did not make a point of being pre- sent,to Twit neBs the firing, it is worthy of note that their liberality, enabled the- commanding officer of the corps to offer an unusually large number,of prizes. And we think the fact will be cheerfully recognised that in the appiopria tion of the awards the interests of all parties concerned were consulted....

FARM AND STATION. WOOL GROWING AND MERINO BREEDING (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 October 1880
fA&M MB STATIQüd WOOL GROWING AND MERINO BREEDING ßv MB. J. S=. H. SCHMIDT. (Continued.) The history of the origin and the development of hair and wool have been made the subject offex tensive enquiry. Cuvier lias found that the ele ments of every hair which the skin is likely to produce are fully developed long before an animal is born. This discovery is of the greatest interest to the woolgrower. We know at present that the skin of every individual will produce no fresh nair bulbs after the animal is bom. Every hair root that h likely to come to maturity and produce a healthy hair has been formed at an early pe«°&lt;|« It is hence impossible to increase the dense growth of the wool fibre, or, in other words, the numerical proportion 'of them to the square inch, by good feeding. Plentiful nourishment will tend to foster the growth of each existing hair, but it does not produce new hair bulb?. Density of growth 1*, therefore, a peculiarity of the race,-a result.of br...
