WORK TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
WORK TABLE. BOEDER OP DBAWN THREADS AND BET XOBtiliA WOEK:-This :is suitable for oma- j menting sideboard and dinner waggon clothes. It is most effective worked on rather coarse Irish linen, which should be of good quality to ensure an even make. The pattern should be traced upon the linen, the threads for the «pen parts cut entirely away. For these stitches, only ordinary sewing and button bole stitches are employed. Crosses are formed in, the centre of circles by stretching ban^of thread across and sewing over. For thjPg'ftwn thread work, straight lines next ?fi*' O^der are worked at a slight angle over favvov more threads, aocordingto the quality »F tho linen. The mode of working the next line of pattern is ordinary slatin stitch, or a aguare formed by four back stitches.
SCRAPS. HOW TO PREVENT BLUSHING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
SCEAPS. HOW TO PREVENT BLUSHING. IDf all expressions of emotion, Darwin rs, blushing seems to bo the most strictly man- Breaches of conventional rules of lduct often cause more intense blushes than ! in a detected crime ; and an act which is illy criminal, if not blamed by our equals, rdly raises a tinge of colour on our cheeks. " Borneo and Juliet," we read : Steal immortal blessing from her lips ; Who, even in pure and vested modesty, Still blush, and thinking their own kisses sin. is not the conscience that raises a blush; ir a man, in solitude, sincerely regrets some ght fault, or suffers the deepest remorse t an undetected crime, but hewill not blush, man may feel thoroughly ashamed at hav g told a small falsehood, and not blush ; it if ho even suspects that be is detected r one whom he reveres, he will instantly uah. Blushing, instead of being a criterion guilt, is a certain sign of innocence. Thus, e are told in " Othello " A maiden never bold : Of spirit so still and quiet t...
WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. PERTH WHOLESALE PRICE'S CURRENT. 16th April, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. . PERTH WHOLESALE PRICE'S CURRENT. 16th April, 1886. A mach firmer tone pervades our markets, and but for the persistency with which heavy lines of merchandize are forced on dealers at auction a general rise in values would be reportable. Though money is scarce and engagements are met with difficulty, a san- guine spirit is evinced as to the future of the colony, and there is every ground for believ- ing that whatever pecuniary embarrassments may at present be experienced, a few months' forbearance will enable the partiesaffected to fully meet their requirements. Reports from the goldfields, though neces- sarily meagre, are increasingly satisfactory. The endeavour of the Government to purchase the gold findings with the intention of exhi- biting them at the " Colonies " in London can hardly be sufficiently applauded, a few spec- ulators are buying up merchandise for trans- port to Derby by the Otway, but we hazard the assertion that the critical importance ...

REAPPEARANCE OF BLONDIN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
REAPPEARANCE OF BLONDIN. BLONDIN, the rope ?walker, Bays an Eng- /Ä lish contemporary,.wishes to return to America and do some high feats, but his r agent finds that the law would prevent a repetition of the Niagara or any lesser peril. Ä net would nave to be spread un- derneath his rope and that would destroy the chief value of his performances. Blon- dín is living in London, at the age of sixty two, and of late years has lost much of his property by unfortunate investments. His idea is that a tour in America would, replenish his fortune, but "Iiis agent say» that, in view of the unavoidable net, nor - will not come.

Mr. Stephen Montague Stout, journalist» who suddenly expired infront of the Colonial Hospital on tho previous day. The inquiry took place at the Hospital, where the following evidence was taken : Richard Francis Claffey, Sergeant of* . police deposed to his identifying the body shewn him in the dead house as that o£ Mr. Stout. Samuel Stephens, resident medical offi- cer, deposed. On Sunday afternoon, be- tween one and two o'clock I went outside the hospital in cousequeuce of what a boy had told me and found the deceased lying dead. With the assistance of his son ana. another person I took him into the dead, house.

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
CHAPTER III. A fortnight or so passed by after the Riveisdales caine home, and it -seemed to me that Mr. Riversdale did not get any better. 1 went to see him .once or twice, and Duke also. He liked my husband much. Duke is always sb cheerful and full of anec- dote, and Mr. Riversdale liked a man who could talk, as I heard him say once. I I was not thinking of anything in particular-I remember that quite well when I look back upon that autumn evening. If there was any- thing in my mind at all it was Duke's cup of tea. He had dined in town early, and my servants and myself had had a composite meal-dinner and tea together-some time since, and I was expecting Duke. I was thinking of nothing else. I was a little tired, for I had been " routing," as my husband calls it, and turning over various things that require looking to now and then. Suddenly a hand was laid on my shoulder-not a light passing touch, but somewhat heavily-a touch that meant me to turn and see who it was. I did turn, an...

MR. HARD MAN'S REPORT AND MAPS. To THE EDITOR. SIE.-Before Mr. Hardman, the geolo- gist left this colony he made a prelinna- . ary report of his surrey of the Kimber- ley district, &c., promising a more de- tailed one to be accompanied by a map nt a future date. This gentleman faithfully kept his promise and furnished one of the most accurately and finely finished maps (I write advisedly) ever seen in this colo- ny, giving af ull description of all the geo- logical formations found in the districts through which he travelled, carefully Z marking the particular positions where gold, in his opinion, would be found in. abundance on the Ord and the Margaret rivers. The report and maps were, I am credibly informed, sent to Melbourne to be printed about six months ago. Up to this time the general public of this colony are in total ignorance of Mr. Hard man's final report, while it must be evt- . ? dent to all that by some means the publie of the other colonies have acquired av kno...
OUR ROEBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
uUR ROEBOURNE LETIER. -o TUe Otway arrived from Derby on the 6th, and' the Albany from Fremantle on the 5th. We were for a short time anxious about the latter vessel, as she occupied in the passage from Ashburton some thirty four hours, the Otway'i time between the two places being about sixteen hours. The delay we afterwards found was in conse- quence of her having anchored during the night. Messrs. Forrest and Price came to Roebourne and remained for a couple of hours. Mr. Forrest said he hoped to make a longer stay on his return from Cambridge Gulf. The Otway left Cossack on the morning of the 6th. You will have heard all the news from the gold fields-as much as, if not more than, ourselves. I expect a big rush and that we shall make a good thing of our beef and mutton. The settlers generally are holding back for a rise. We have not yet had enough rain, in fact, we have only had one good thunder shower, which lasted for three quarters of an hour, during which time three inches fe...

OUR BUNBURY LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
OUR BUNBURY LETTER. Tho final survey of the railway to the , timber ranges is being proceeded with to the satisfaction of us all. Mr. Gardiner, the resident engineer, has been very busy sarveying the two routes, by which it is possible for a railway to pass from the jetty through the town ; the one is along the stieet to the westward of the principal thoroughfare, and passes close by the Government offices, with an excellent I site for the station on the reserve oppo- site the post office. The other route, and that which a large majority of the in- habitants hope will be approved of, is along the bank of the Estuary, leaving ' the town by the Vasse road. The former route absorbs a large extent of private property, and the claims for compensation are, I understand, very heavy. Any per- son acquainted with Bunbury will under- stand the damage a railway will do passing through the magnificent properties of Mr. Teede and Mr. W. Spencer, from the post office to the Vasse road. But notwit...

I can state confidently that if a clergyman-one whom we could look upon as a friend and i as a gentleman-were sent up, liberal I donations towards his support w«uld not be wanting from the settlers.
