VERMIN ON CHICKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 20 March 1888

VERMIN ON CHICKEN. Vermin on chickeu are a grectt drawback to the raising of poultry. There are many varieties of them. There is a small spider like insect, barely visible to the eyes, which will sometimes cover the nests and egga, making them appear alive. They will often kill the younger chickens and even the old hens, by eating the tender parts until the bitten places inflame and bleed and form sores. The midge, is this insect is often called, may be driven out by the use of tobacco smoke.' A little grease applied to the hands while handling the hens and chickens, will keep the insects from getting on the body, which they otherwise will do, causing great, annoyance. Every nest should be destroyed as the chickens are taken out. The flea is another pest of' the poultry yard. The chicken flea is particularly vicious and ac- ? tive. The most successful poultry raisers rely on cleanliness as a pre ventive of vermin. The chicken house roosts and nests should be wbitewashed frequently, ...

Vasse Notes. ('FROit Ouil CoitRESl'OXDEJfT.) March 12. I notice in ' Busseiton Correspond ent's' lust to the West Australian that he has thought it worth his while to review my letter of some weeks back and to take exception to some remarks I then made, which he deems ' inapt, if not inelegant, ' and par ticularly wishes to know whether ' your own' is a professing Christian. ?Really I was not aware in this nine teenth century that this was an abso lute requisite or qualification for a correspondent to possess. But foi his particular enlightenment I may inform him that I do profess Chris tianity and further am an ardent ad mirer of Dr. Watts, ?nd thought and still think the moral conveyed in one of his hymns was decidedly apt. It is very woll for the West's Correspond ent writing ex Cathedra and stating the assertion was untrue. Still facts are stubborn things and one has only to skim back and see that personali ties were indulged in. I considered such a practice bad taste and conse ...

Mrs. Lorrimer' s Advertise ment. v«r — — — — By BERT FEREE8. Chapter III. Poor Mrs. Gordon was in a dilem ma. She would have given all she possessed to tell Jessica their rela tions, but when she saw how much she loved Greville Thorne, and thought of the preparations for the wedding, and perceived that her in formation might militate against the young girl's happiness, she hesitated. '? Uh, God, she cried, ' am 1 to put Tier from me a second time '?' Mrs. ?Gordon almost felt convinced that Creville loved Jessica too well to let 'the knowledge of her not really being . Mrs. Lorrimer's. daughter send him away from her; still, the good woman, who had had her faith in the courage and manliness of men greatly shaken, ?was afraid to put him to the test, so she went on from day to day assisting Alice with the bridal robes, and trust ing to God to show her how to act.

THE GREENOUGH FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 27 March 1888

THE GEEENOUGH FLOODS. A lady of the district has sent us the following-extract from a letter, received from a friend at- Green ough, referring to the floods; — Truly it has been a sad time with us here, farmers ruined for vears to come, miles upon miles of fencing washed away, houses, outbuildings, &c all wrecked, thous ands of bushels of corn destroyed and large quantities of hay and teed for stock. At the youth end of the flat (both back and front) the water ex tends about 3 miles in length by Ivr miles in breadth, which, it is expected will remain on the land for fully 2 years, thus preventing it from being worked.

TELEGRAMS. BRITISH & FOREIGN London, March 20. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 27 March 1888

TELEGRAMS. BRITISH & FOREIGN London, March 20. Some very exti'aordinary and sensa tional reports have cetne from Ger many within the last few days, but the} are generally discredited. There are some however who give credence. to them on account of the secresy that was maintained as to the time the Emperor died. The reports state: that a plot has existed for a long time past by the war party in Germany to: prevent the possibility of Frederick III. ascending the throne, by the most diabolical means. It is said that the present Emperor has persistently been treated for cancer so as to disable him. permanently, while in fact he was not; suffering from that disease. Their: efforts were however frustrated by Sir Morell MaeKenzie who has ad-, hered to his first statement that the affection in the throat is not of a cancerous nature. Sir Morell Mac Kenzie's diagnosis brought upon him, severe criticisms from the opponents of the present Emperor's party, and more especially severe wer...

COOTTRY NEWS. Dardaxup. March 12th, 1888. Interesting news is a very scarce commodity amongst people living in the bush ; the general topic of con versation1 being the depressed state of the times; As for the ordinary work ing man, who depends upon his daily wages, the prospect (us far as the mind's eye can conceive) is a deplor able one. There is no work of any kind going on at the present ; and still worse there is no likelihood of auything turning up even in the near approaching season, and what iu the name of goodness are the poor work ing classes to depend upon, for sub sistence though the coming winter it is at present a most difficult', problem to define. While the railway works lasted all was well enough but from the day the works ceased there are many and many who have not earned as much as a florin up to the present. Still there are men continually flock ing from other parts of the colony to this district with the result that they are forced to tramp their way back as best...
