THE AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY. A SYMPATHETIC GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
THE AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY. A SYMPATHETIC GOVERNOR. Sir Arthur Lawley, speaking at the Royal Agricultural Show luncheon on Tuesday, said he believed—in feet, it was a truism—that what was most urgently wanted in this State was to get the agricultural population settled on the soil. (Hoar, hear.) It was satisfac tory to notice the rapid developments of the agricultural industry. The prospects for an agricultural population were eminently satis factory. It was essential that there should be three inducements to the settler; firstly, there must be abundant land available; secondly, there must be a good market; and, thirdly, the soil must be os sufficient good quality to repay the settler for his labors. From the figures which were given recently by the Colonial Treasurer, he learned that there was land available for an enormous agricultural population in this State. (Hear, hear.) It was obvious that the gold industry provided a splendid market, and as that industry was yet only in its i...

Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
Cricket. On Saturday, the 26thOctober a cricket match took place on the Katanning Becreation Beserve, between the Moojebing and Katan ning teams. .The Kntanning captain won the toss and elected the bit. Hughes ahi Starr were the first representatives of Katanining, hut the former phi not last long, as after making three runs He was given out to a moBt doubtful 1 b.w.% decision; Tembj followed and a change came OTer the play, as be and Starr kept together till 45 runs had been made. The brightest cricket of the day was seen when Folland and H. Baker were to gether ; Folland's hitting jbeing a feature of the match, bnt; in trying to hit the ball dean* out of sight, he made a mis-hit iand was easily caught. .The Kafonning team declared their innings closed when seven wickets had fallen for 107 runs, and Moojebing had a turn, but the attack was too strong for their men, time only saving them from defeat, as they finished with six wickets down for 38 runs ; Bafferby, captain, remaining n...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 2 November 1901
TO THE EDITOR. Sib,—I, ■with many others, would lite te know who was responsible for the bad man agement of the Show ball. It is generally understood that if one 'pays 5s. for admit tance to a hall he will be provided with re freshments free of charge. At the Show ball, however, I foun^L it different altogether. First, those in attendance were asked to pay 5s. (doable) and 3s. (single), for admittance; then when refreshments were required a charge of 6d. a cup for tea or coffee— called—and 3d for eatables was made, which I consider to be an exorbitant price. I may say that the charging for refreshments, and, above all, the awful price charged, created a "great deal of dissatisfaction, it being the one topic throughout the evening. Hoping some one will enlighten me on this subject,— Yours, etc., One "Who "Would Liee to Know.

AN OBJECT-LESSON IN STOCK-BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 9 November 1901
AN OBJECT-LESSON IN STOCK-BREEDING. In a letter to the Live Stock Journal, of .luly 21, that well known writer "Javelin" «ives some interesting parti culars of a noted tribe of shorthorns which illustrate at the same time the , value of judicious in-breeding and the 1 importance of the female line in a pedigree. The tribe is. generally | known as the Cressida tribe, but it ' might just aB well be known by the name of her dum Cassandra, who was quite as distinguished a cow as her famous daughter. Cassandra was bred by Mr. Shafto in 1P32, and was by Miracle 2320, ofMr. O. Ceiling's Fortune tribe. Uer dam, Garland, by Matchem 2281, of the same tribe, was closely related to Miracle through Farmer Charles and Henry, in un interrupted succession iii tho pedigree of both bulls who were half-brothers in blood. The next antecedent sire, Fitzremus 2025, was by Remus, a son of Comet,.with the blood of Favourite, Comet's sire, in the two next earlier bulls; and the dam of Fitzremus, Juno,was by...

CORRESPONDENCE. BELATED PASSENGERS AT WAGIN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 9 November 1901
CORRESPONDENCE. BELATED PASSETfGKERS AT WACHN. TO THE EDITOB. Sir,—Under tlie above heading I notice in your Saturday's issue a paragraph, which, if not absolutely untrue, is certainly misleading. That " the train moved off without warning," we all know to be incorrect, and evidence points to the tact that she was some minutes behind time in leaving. And the belated passengers themselves admit tbey missed the train through their own carelessness. As I have been asked by quite a number to con tradict your paragraph, I hope you will give this the necessary publicity, in justice to Mr. Ross, our station-master, who knows his business, and attends to it. -Yours, etc. FAIR-PLAY, Wagin, November 26. [There was nothing whatever misleading in the paragraph referred to, as it contained only the bare statement of one of the be lated passengers, which, being ex 'parte, should have been taken as such.—Ed. G-.S.H.]

A HORSE WANTED. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 9 November 1901
A. HORSE WANTED. TO THB EDITOR. Sib,—Through your columns I wish to. draw attention to the parsimony, or I might. say shameful neglect, of the Government, in ! not supplying Broome Hill police station with a horse. If the constable has to do any duty outside the town he has to hire a horse for the purpose, and should his services be urgently required, and he had to run around the neighbourhood practically begging for the loan of one, he would probably be of little avail. &lt; o have a police station, with a constable in charge, and with no. other means of getting about the district than that which he might be borrow, is only another instance of the red tapeism and penny-wise and pound foolish principles that pervade some of the Government departments. Becognising the ; absolute necessity for the providing of a j horse, I would suggest that a petition from ! the tovrnsDeonle be forwarded to the Depart ment.— -Yours etc. W. GARRITY. Broome Hill, November 6.

YELLOW BLIGHT OF POTATOES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 9 November 1901
YELLOW B LIG-HT OF POTATOES. TO THE EDITOB. Sir,—Relative to a blight that is affecting the potato crops of this district, I desire to write a few lines. The pest is only another addition to the long list already existing, and as will be seen |by the accompanying letter, is known as " yellow blight of potatoes." Hitherto we thought that- frost and short seasons were the chief enemies to the potato. The patch in question can be seen on a block of land, the properly of Mr Gqvan. It is new ground, and naturally well drained, and, for new land, has been exceptionally well cultivated, having been prepared for fruit trees. The potatoes were looking splendid until a week ago. How the tops are all dried yellow, and withered; the roots turn black in patches, which spreads until the whole root is affected. The. young tubers are not effected, but, being so small, they will be almost worthless. The " Beauty of Hebron" variety are affected much worse that the Early Rose," the latter being scarce...

WICKHAM FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 9 November 1901
WICKHAM FARM. One of the most extensive and promising orchards in the Katanning district is that of Mr. J. C. Cook, which is known as Wickham Farm, situate about two and a half miles along the line from Katanning to Broome Hill. It is only about four years since the land was placed under ! fruit culture., and a visit to the farm is necessary to gain an idea of the magnitude of the area and, the rapidity of growth of the orchard, which covers something like seventeen acres. On this amount of ground Mr. Cook has between 1,700 and 1,800 healthy, and, for the most part, well developed fruit trees, including 1,400 apple. The latter have made exceedingly good growth, especially those im ported from the Eastern States. The imported trees put in less than three years ago are far in advance of a number of locally produced ones that have been in since the comencement, about four" years. Vines also form an important part in fruit culture on the farm, and for the production of vegetables for ho...
