The Naturalist. HOW TO GET RID OF RATS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893

The Naturalist HOW TO GET RID OF RATS. The best way to get rid of rats and mice is not to poison them, bat to make them thoroughly tired of the looality, and bo in duce them to leave. They are generally too smart to eat poison, even when it is pre pared for their benefit in the most seductive fashion, bat they are not so particular about tartar emetic When a little of this is mixed %ith any favorite food they will eat as greedily as tfaougn me pnysio were not there, but in two or three hours there will be the most discouraged lot of rats about the place that anybody ever saw. The tartar will not kill them, it only makes them deathly sick. If you put your ear to their holes you can hear them trying to vomit ; sometimes they will crawl out and walk about like a seasiok man, so ill that they do not seem to care what becomes of them. But it disgusts them with the whole vicinity, and as Boon as they are able to travel they march off and you see them no more.

FASHION ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893

FASHION ITEMS. Over sixty years ago, a little girl skilled with her needle, amused herself by dressing a number of small dolls in the exact styles then in vogue. That maiden was the little Duohess of Kent, now Queen of England, and, recently, her majesty's seoretary, Sir Henry Ponsonby, discovered the collection of puppets arrayed by the clever, royal child in those bygone days. Dressmakers eagerly copied and enlarged the miniature outfits, and to this fact is said to be due what is known as the 'revival of 1830,' namely, drooping puffed sleeves, amplified skirts and alas ! possibly crinoline, whioh have already appeared in London and Paris, and will doubtless be seen here this spring. A ekirt five and a half yards in width and containing cine gored breadths, is soarcely a thing to be desired by the economist and, leb us hope, may be modified before it becomes estab lished ; while one cannot but suspect that the modistes have had an interested finger in this extravagant ? revival.' ...

The Home Rule Bill REJECTED BY THE LORDS. BRILLIANT SPEECH BY LORD SALISBURY. LONDON, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893

The Home Eule Bill REJECTED BY THE LORDS. BRILLIANT SPEECH BY LORD SALISBURY, [Bv Cable.] (From Our Correspondent,) London, Tuesday. The Home Rule Bill has been re jected in the House of Lords, by 319 votes to 41, Tho greatest- excitement prevails, and the manifestations of joy are uni versal throughout the country at the rejection of the measuz%e. In Ireland the news was received quietly, but in. Armagh lnots have oc curred, and several houses were wrecked. Lord Salisbury made a brilliant speech prior to the division, in which he taunted Mr. Gladstone with adopt ing a policy of despair. He said the Bill had passed the Coaimons by a party majority of 38, and that majority had been stamped as a criminal brand by the Parnell Commission. Irish members were workable, and their support could be bought and sold. The Prince of Wales was present, but took no part in the proceedings. The Irish National League of Am- ** erica has issued a manifesto, stating that the Bill is worthless, and urg...

Sketcher. MY SERVANT ANDREAS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893

Sketcher. MY SERVANT ANDREAS. When the first fight between the Servians and Turks occurred, Andreas claimed to be allowed to witness it along with me. I de muired ; he might get hit ; and if anything should happen to him, what should I do for a servant Ab length I gave him the firm order to remain in camp, and started myself with the groom behind me on my second horse. The fighting occurred eight miles from camp, and in the course of it, leaving the groom in the rear, I had accompanied the Russian General Doohtouroff into a most unpleasantly hot place, where a storm of Turkish shells were falling in the effort to hinder the withdrawal of a disabled Servian battery. I happened to glance over my shoulder, and lo ! Andreas on foot was at my horse's tail, obviously in a state of ecstatic enjoy ment of the situation. I peremptorily ordered him back, and he departed sullenly, oalmly strolling along the line of Turkish fire. Just then, Tchernaieff, the Servian Com mander- in- Chief, had, i...

QUEER SALMON FISHING IN ALASKA. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893

QUEER SALMON FISHING IN ALA8KA. The run of salmon in the rivers of Arctic Alaska takes place from the middle of Jaly until the middle of August or the first day of Saptember, and is of greater extent than 'anyone can conceive who has not seen it. As a natural consequence ' fisherman's luck ' is a very different thing there than in the fished-out streams of New England. I first heard of the magnitude of these runs of salmon while our vessel lay at har bor on the coast of Alaska,, less than 100 miles below Behring Straits. It was the first week in July, and only a stray finny forerunner was now and then caught by the natives. These fish were mostly of three or four pounds weight and their flesh was almost white. But they were fish and large ones, too, in the sight of one who had only fished in New Englaad streams, so I was seized with a desire to go a- fishing. I was preparing for the trip in the old regulation style, and with the usual outfit, when the oaptain of our vessel suggested...

PRISON LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893

PRISON LITERATURE. Prison literature in general is too wide a subject to deal with in a short sketch such as the present ; we shall therefore oonfiuo our remarks to ' Prison Poetry.' Much oi the matter which is classed un^er this category is certainly but little worthy of the title of poetry, being merely doggerel, and some of that the crudest possible, but the term is need in its general senso, including anything in the form of rhyme. When Bunyan wrote his ' Pilgrim's Pro gress ' he penned for it a poetical preface, whioh we are quite justified in olassing as a prison poom. It is usually found prefixed to tho various editions of his work, and is oalled ' The Author's Apology for His Book.' In ib ho somewhat corroborates the sentiments elready expressed, that, when writrng is. resorted to in prison, it is for lack oi somoth/Dg other to do. He says : I did not think To Bhow to all the wodd my pen and ink In such a mode ; I only thought to make I knew not what ; nor did I undertake Th...

ARE COINS SWEATED NOWADAYS? [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893

ARE COINS SWEATED NOWADAYS? A few years ago the coin-sweater was content with hia chamois-leather bag in which to ' shake up ' the coins until ho had obtained the desired amount of ' dust.' Sweating, however, has advanced with the times, and the methods now adopted al though more intrioate, are certainly more effective. Under the old system the coins only grated against each other, and the raised portions suffered most. Consequent ly, a coin — gold, for obvious reasons, being chosen for preference — could not be light ened to any very great extent, or the head and tail would soon be entirely obliterated. This difficulty has however been practically surmounted, and our sweaters of to-day remove the gold c quaHy from all parts of the suiface on both sides in such a manner that the devices will be as plain and ' sharp' as before the coin was operated on. The degree of perfection wbioh has been reaohed may be imagined when we state that, if he wishes, a sweater is able to take three or ...

HINTS TO HORSE-KEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 20 September 1893

HINTS TO HORSE-KEEPERS. To stop ' cribbing ' or oraving for boards give tho horse white oak bark. IJj iH tho beBt tonic in the world to rogulaio tho digestive organB. To kill vermin in tho coat there ia nothing bettor than road duet. Two or three applications ono woek apart will kill everything and m&ko his hair shine. For contracted foot make a strong brino and soak his foot once a vieek. This will keep thorn in healthy condition, and do more toward softening them tban all tho groaso and liniment you can find. Have tho brino hot as you can boar your hand in it. Ono half hour's soaking in this ouco a week ia better than soaking in plain water overy day. The salt will penetrate the hoof and it will gather moisture all the time. The old Arab says that the horse's feet should be wet every timo the dew falls and every time he goes to drink. There is another thing that most men overlook, and that is the issues on the legi?. There are two on each leg and these ought to be kept sof...

TEE LATE MRS. LONGBOTTOM THE FUNERAL. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 20 September 1893

THE LA TE MRS. LONGBO TTOM THE FUNERAL. [From our Correspondent.] Vasse, Saturday. Once more the flags have been half-masted in our town ; this time for 'one of our most respected resi dents — one who has been universally beloved and respected throughout the district, and I think I may safely say, the Colony — one who has braved the ups and downs of the Colony for 52 years. 52 years ago our late res pected friead, Mrs. Longbottom ar rived in the Colony in the ship Suc cess, with her now aged husband and one son. The good, kind, old lady eiided her days on Monday afternoon surrounded by the majority of her family. The deceased lady was until lately a very strong, active woman, ever ready to help the poor and needy. Mrs. Longbottom will long be romeni bered by those who visited the Lower Blackwood during the period of her residence there as a kind and hospit able woman. Her real illness was not of long duration, and she was sensible to the last, passing away as quietly as a child goin...

A TRIP TO THE COLLIE COAL FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 20 September 1893

A TRIP TO THE COLLIE COAL FIELD. By a Visitor. Left Bunbury on the morning of Wednesday, 6th September by train to Collie River, crossing close to the residence of Mr. R. PL Rose, Jum\, Roelands, whose splendid jjroperty is now showing evidences of the great care and labor bestowed during last winter as witnessed by the order and state of the crops, principally for forage. Mr. Rose also goes in largely for dairying, and 'has at present about 30 fine healthy looking cows in full milk. He uses a large De Laval Separatoi1, worked by horse power, for separat ing the milk, the butter from which is well-known as a regular prize-taker at the local shows. He also has a fine flock of sheep suitable for the market, and has lately imported some for stud purposes, amongst which is a splendid young Southdown ram. Those whose minds are prejudiced to the slow-going style of the W. A. farmer should first (before deciding they are so much behind the times) look over such px'operties as Roelands. Her...

Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 20 September 1893

Topics of the Week. We have to express our regret that the tenor and substance of the letter of Mr. James Kelly on the subject of the action of the Licensing Bench in relation to his appli cations for a way-side house license, pre cludes our publishing the same. We, how ever, shall be happy to insert any letter from Mr. Kelly, if temperately written, and on a lkgitimate grievance. * * Petty thefts have been frequent of lats, and housekeepers are getting more care ful of their goods, and keeping their doors shut more than formerly. Last Saturday night Mr. P. Cooper, of the Grazier's Butchering Co., lost three fore-quarters of mutton out of his shop, and sundry pieces of fresh and salt beef. * The s.s. Nemesis arrived from the eastern colonies, via southern ports on Sunday morning. She had about 10 passengers, chiefly miners, and a full cargo, 60 tons of which she discharged in Bunbury.

THE ' BUNSURY' HERALD. WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 20, 1893, One of our important industries 'that promises to receive an .early' impetus from lecent proposals sub mitted to the Government, is the Greenbusb.es tinfields. Far and wide the urgent necessity is recog nised that every means should be availed of that offers a prospect of move extensively, and more prac tically, testing the extent of our tin deposits.
