TO THE PüBMC : In this groove of thought, I began to look about me for a business that would be not only profitable to myself, but in the prosecution of which I might be of some service to others, and the result was that I became convinced there was a splendid opening for the sale of KEALLY GOOD BUTTER. The great Tory cloud of depression which has hung over Western Australia for the past two years is rapidly lifting, and confidence-which is of greater value than mon...

FARM AND STATION. WOOL GROWING AND MERINO BREEDING (Continued.) THE NATURE OF THE WOOL FIBRE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 November 1880

ÏAMI ANS STATÏ8N. WOOL GROWING AND MERINO BREEDING ßv MB. J. S. H. SCHMIDT. 11 (Continued.) THE NÀTUBE OF THE WOOL FIBBE. In my last lecture I tried to give you some par- ticulars about the wool fibre, and referred to the physiology and the anatomy of the skin, its func- tions and products. I now select the wool fibre of the merino as the special object of my remarks. The whole mass of the wool fibres as they grow on the sheep's back present themselves in the shape of a large number of bunches, which are smaller or larger in size according to the qualities of the single fibres of which these bunches are composed. These natural congregations of wool hairs are call- ed staples, and they remind us of the phenomenon of crystallisation which we observe in chemistry. The external appearance, the shape, and the size of the staples are sure tests of the qualities of the fibres of which they are composed, and a sheep breeder will be able to form a pretty correct idea about the qualities of t...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, NOV. 5, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 November 1880

WEST AIST1ÀMAN. VioiLAKS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, NOV. 5, 1880. TUE near approach of the summer heat makes one realize, as the recurrence of the hot season always does, how ill as a gene- ral rule Englishmen adapt their habits to altered circumstances of place and climate, and how invincibly conservative - even when coupled with tendencies towards poli- tical radicalism-is their disposition in regard to the customs of daily life. A no- table example ef this characteristic are the black ' chimney-pots' which|all Sydney dons on a Sunday morning, no matter how tor- rid the heat, or how fierce the brick-fielder, patiently submitting to torture and dis- comfort the most intense, rather than dis- card that orthodox head-covering, which in youth its inhabitants were taught to asso* ciate with godliness and respectability, in favour of one in a lesser degree outraging the dictates of humanity and common sense. The architecture of the old capital is as unsuitable to the climate as the clothin...

QÊ6ASÏ®NA1N@TES. LOCAL AND GBNMBAL. HTS Honor the Chief Justice left Perth yesterday, bound overland to Albany, where he takes steamer for Melbourne, on a visit to the In- ternational Exhibition. LAST Tuesday's Gazette contained an im- portant announcement which has long and impati- ently been expected. It does not however appear that the Government have been to blame for the long delay which bas occurred in regard to the opening up of the Fitzroy lands, for we under- stand that the despatch from the Secretary of State to which reference was made in a message sent down last session to the House, has not even yet been received. The first of February next has, we understand, been fixed upon as the date for opening and considering applications, in order to give time to the settlers at the North, who would be placed ata disadvantage were an earlier date adopted. WE hear that a spirited contest is likely to to take place for civic honors in connection with the approaching municipal elect...

LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE OF ST. GEORGE'S CATHEDRAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 November 1880

LAYING THE FtöNBATION STONE OF ST. GEORGE'S CATHEDRAL. At a meeting of the parishioners of the Angli- can communion in this city, held on the 22nd June, 1877, it was resolved that the time had come for the erection of a new Cathedral in the place of the unsightly and inconvenient building hitherto used as such, and a committee was ap- pointed to carry out this project, by whom an active canvass for subscriptions and donations was commenced. A circular was also addressed to tha clergy, churchwardens, and synodsmen of the several parishes, inviting their co-operation. It was proposed that the new Cathedral should be on the model of a good modern English parish church, capable of accommodating about a thousand per- sons, not to exceed in cost £12,000. Some liberal contributions, and many smaller ones, having been received, a great stimulus to farther efforts was given in the early part of the year 1878 hythe munificent offer of £2,000, made in the first in- stance anonymously, to aid t...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, NOV. 9,1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 November 1880

THE WIST ÂïSTtAMAM. VIGILÁIS ET AUDAX PEBTH, TUESDAY, NOV. 9,1880. I>* our last issue we published a report of the proceedings on the interesting occa- sion of laying the foundation stone of the sew St. George's Cathedral. To the pioneer settlers of this colony we owe much. The strong men and brave women who fought the hard battle which the first settlement of our territory involved, and cheerfully faced jprivations, dangers, and miseries, now difficult to realize, will be ever held by "West Australians in warm- hearted remembrance. But there is no de- nying the fact that the architectural taste of the earlv fathers of the colony was extremely deplorable. The hideous, exe crescence caliea ' Oíd Government House,' which mars the beauty of the Government Gardens, is one specimen-the Anglican Cathedral is another. - Each vies with the other in deformity, but perhaps, for rea- sons which readers of Ruskin will appreci- ate, the Cathedral carries off the palm. And we can well understa...

SCHOOL FEES. To THE EOITOE OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-I must ask for space to correct a para I graph which appeared in your issue of the 2nd instant, respecting the working of the Elementary Education Act. ' . ' I.

II. Your paper states that " in consequence of " the District Boards allowing teachers to admit " as free scholars a very large number of children " whose parents are welboff, but refuse to pay, it " has become necessary to put some check upon " the practice :" I need only say in reference to this, that District Boards have no power to admit : children to Government schools as free scholars.

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) GUILDFORD, Nov. 6. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 November 1880

(From our own eorrespondents ) GUILDFORD, Nov. 6. Our little township is again brightening np in anticipation of coming events. On Wednesday next the W. A. A. Association's annual show will be held on the Swan Agricultural Society's new ground, and a finer site for such a purpose, or better accommodation for stock, one seldom sees. The Swan Society certainly has most faithfully carried out its promise made to the W. A. A. A. last year-that " in the event of the show being held this year in Guildford every necessary accommodation would be pro- vided."^ A good deal of interest is now being taken by exhibitors and others, and the stock exhibits are already getting near town, and are generally highly spoken of. I am told that Mr. Padbury is exhibiting (although there is no prize offered) his yearling bull " Waterloo," the progeny of two of his imported stock, and judges tell me that a more promising'youngster could not be found in the colonies. There is also to be after the show is over...
