COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. MELBOURNE WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 November 1880
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. MELBOURNE WOOL MARKET. Messrs. Elder and Younghusband, in their monthly report dated October 28th, referring to the Melbourne wool market, say : " Our last summary was dated the 30th ult., since when we have to report the opening of the season's sales here, the first of which was held on the 6th inst., before a very large attendance of English, Scotch, and Continental buyers, in addition to the local buyers for our woollen mills and shippers. Unusual interest was evinced in the event, and the biddings commenced with great spirit, atan advance of from nine to ten per cent, on last season's opening rates. The sales which have followed this have well maintained the opening rates ; and, from the large number of orders which arti known to be in buyers' hands, we anticipate that an unusual quantity of the season's clip will be sold in this market. Up to the present, about 19,000 bales have found purchasers at rates which cannot but be highly satisfactory to grower...

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. ANNUAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 November 1880
WESTERNAUSTRALIANAGRI- GULTURAL ASSOCIATION. ANNUAL SHOW. The fifth annual show in connection with the Wester» Australian Agricultural Association was held at Guildford on Wednesday, the 10th inst. There was a large attendance of visitors from Perth and adjacent districts, the influx of strangers giving an unusually animated appearance to the pretty little township where the exhibition was held. The show itself was on the' whole, satis- factory, and, in some respects, particularly so. Of the show of horses, however, little can be said. Although there are irany imported horses in the colony-some even as near as Perth-none put in an appearance; and hence the Society saved .£14 of offered prize money. The exhibits of roadster entires were confiued to two, one belonging to His Lordship Bishop Salvado-a dark bay or brown, with splendid top stories but indifferent legs ; the other, a very pretty brown of Mr. Hamersley's, but hardly large enough for breeding carriage horses from.

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) NORTHAM, Nov. 10. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 November 1880
StmCfíX LETTERS. (From our omi correspondents ) NORTHAM, Nov. 10. On Wednesday and Sunday last, we were blessed with a good downpour of rain, which has proved of much benefit to the wheat crops -though too late to do much good to the late sown wheat, much of which has been cut for hay. It astonishes everyone that the wheat preserves such a vitality under the scorching weather we have had off and on for weeks past. Our annual festivals have passed over on the whole successfully. As regards the number of people, I do not remember seeing so many pre- sent for years, and a stranger must have been struck by the almost reckless manner with which money was spent by the crowds of men assem- bled at the various hotels, giving one an idea of anything but "bad times." The bushman's annual cheque wa3 speedily ' melted,' and they returns doubtless to another year's toil and self denial, as a preparation for another week's " spree" in '81. And bo the years pass on, until the last scene of all, fo...
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, NOV. 16,1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 November 1880
WEST ÄilSTlAMAN. Yigilaxs et Audax PEBTR, TUESDAY, NOV. 16,1880. "We abe strongly inclined to agree with the opinion expressed by His Excellency the Govebxob at the Western Australian Agricultural Society's dinner,-that "he did not himself think that much harm would be. done if a reference to politics were allowable on such occasions." In a colony, all questions of public interest, and more especially such matters as the de- velopment of its pastoral and agricultural industries, are so indissolubly connected with what we are in the habit of calling 'politics,' that to taboo the latter at a gathering such as that of the Central Agri- cultural Society's dinner, which should be one of the most important social meetings of the year, precludes the possibility of any really useful interchange of ideas. To num- berless questions, such for instance as the disposal of lands, the construction of rail- ways, the upkeep of roads, etc., allusions cannot possibly be avoided in s|)eaking at all fu...

FARM AND STATION. WOOL GROWING AND MERINO BREEDING By.Mr.J. S. H. SCHMIDT. (Continued.) THE NATURE OF THE WOOL FIBRE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 November 1880
ÏAfiM AM® STAT». WOOL GROWING AND MERINO BREEDING ; ; By; Mr.. J. S. H. Schmidt. (Continued.) THITKÀTURir'Ot'THE WOOL'FIBRIV . Truenes«.-A wool fibre is true if it exhibits the 'samé diameter in^every^pact, or in other words, if it has an equal fineness from the top to the bottom of the staple. 'As* the formation of the waving materially depends upon the diameter of the fibre, it follows that the waves must be larger in the thicker parts and smaller in the finer parta of the wool hair. The irregularity of form, to!which We give thename of untrueness, may bo observed in two ways. The hair itself may be of unequal thickness in different parts of it j in this case we speak of untrueness of-the wool huir. * The irregu- larity refers not to the single hair so much as to the different structure of the several hairs that com- pose the same staple, and we say now the staple is untrue. There are chiefly two reasons why un- trueness is objectionable ; firstly, fibres of unequal diameter do no...

Experience has proved th* almost unvaried success obtained when Holloways Pills are taken in the earlier stages, and the case they afford when the complaint is more advanced. They relax the hot and parched shin, overcome the attendant costiveness, induce a copious secre- tion M the kidneys, which are the harbingers of disease departing and health returning

BUTTER-MAKING AND BUTTERJUDGING. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 November 1880
BUTTER-MAKING AND BUTTER JUDGING. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-Will yon allow me space hi your valu- able journal to make a few remarks concerning the fresh butter exhibits at the late Agricultu- ral Shows of 1879 and 1880. First of all I would ask, What is really good fresh butter ? Why, certainly not that which obtained first prize at the above shows, for in both cases it 1 contained a large proportion of butter-milk, and consequently would not keep many days. Good butter should not contain one particle of j butter-milk ; and in order to prove this} the rolls should be cut fair in two, and then, if the butter showed any particle of the milk, it should be condemned. This method of testing butter is the only guarantee that good butter-makers have, that their ability in making it will ba'established, and for this reason : Some exhibitors live long distances from the show grounds, while others live probably within a few hundred yards. These latter persons could, by using...
