OUR CITY LETTER. PERTH, March 29th [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 3 April 1888

OtTR CITY LETTER. (Fbom Our Cokuespondent.) Pkrth, March 29th. Beyond the proceedings in the Le gislature, which have been unusually dull and uninteresting, nothing of any moment has occurred that calls for any lengthy detailing. This fact, however, remains that trade is at a verv low ebb indeed, commercial transactions being at a standstill, while merchants seem paralysed at the stagnant state of affairs. Nu merous bands of unemployed are to be seen at the street corners, waiting for the work that never comes, while loud and long are the complaints lev elled at the members of the Legisla ture for their tardiness in transacting the business of the colony ; at their seeming neglect of important issues while playing a game of shuttlecock with trie question of Responsible Go verument. It would have been much better had our Legislators floated a large loan some twelve months ago, when the chances were offered in the Governor's speech at the opening of the Legislature, in which he pointe...

The Advertiser. Nihil sine Labore. APRIL 3rd, 1888. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 3 April 1888

Kihif. sine Lahore. API* 1L. 3rd, 1SS8. There seems to be some hope that the great want of the Southern Districts has tit least a chance of being realised. As will' be seen in another, col umn a proposal has been sub mitted to tiie Legislative Council to construct a rail way line from Bayswater to Busselton, following the route of the. line surveyed for Mr. Dobson's scheme, which was rejected last year. fJ he pro moters of the scheme are Messrs. Nlil McNeil & Co., of Ja ri'a 1 i d ale, who undertake to construct the line on some what tho same terms a^ those proposed -by Mr. Dobson only at a considerable less cofcit to the colony. The gist of the whole scheme will be lovind on another page,, and the object of this article is to impress upon our legislators the ' necessitv of making some arrangement if possible to have the line made. The fact that the Government, do not re gard the proposal with favour is no reason why the members of the Legislature should not. Indeed the temp...

COUNTRY NEWS. DARDANUP, March 30th [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 3 April 1888

COUNTRY HEWS. Ml Da.uda.nup, March 30th. The bushfires have apparently all died out in this part of the district, but the damage which they bave oc\^ casioned to fencing and other proper ty will necessitate many a long and werry day's toil to effect a thorough state of repair, as miles of fencing ? have been- totally destroyed. Thin 9 destruction to property is attributable 9 iu a great measure to some stock- 9 owners who to secure the early feed I for their cattle take advantage of. fl the earliest opportunity, (when the 8 euast is clear) to set the bush on fire fl in such localities as have become the fl favourite resorts for the depasturing 9 of their cattle. They little care who 9 is or is not ready or prepared to meet 9 the too often dreadful consequences 9 of a bushfire, and at their own risk 9 set the bush on fire months previous I to the time allowed by law, as I un- 9j derstand the time for such operations 8 commences in March.

THE PROPOSED VASSE-BAYS WATER RAILWAY. Messrs. Neil McNeil & Co. have offered to construct, a railway line from Bayswater to Vasse, and sub     mitted the proposals to the Legislat ive Council.

CREVECCEURS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 10 April 1888

CREVECCEURS. The rearing of poultry for the table has long been regarded as one of the staple industries of the French peo ple. As a rule, their market fowls are far superior to those of England, and are produced in much larger numbers. Among the celebrated ]Normandy table fowls one of the most esteemed, by the French are the crevecceurs. This variety of fowl is quiet, domestic, great layers of large eggs, hardy, prolific, easily fattened, and of the first quality for the table. They are unfortunately non-setters, and again they are apt to break their eggs from the great weight of the fowl, which is at least one-third more than that of the common fowls. The finest capons of this breed have been known to weigh as high as nine pounds. The pullets are of extraord inary precocity, since they may be put up to fatten at the age of three months, and they are ready for table in fifteen days after. At four months old a fowl of this breed has reached its full perfection as to weight and quali...

A PLANT WHICH DESTROYS MALARIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 10 April 1888

A PLANT WHICH DESTROYS MALARIA. Dr. Brandes, a physician at Hitz ackes, Hanover, has written an article in a German medical paper in which he demonstrates the valuable properities of the anacharis alsinast rum, a water plant which has hither to been considered an unmitigated plague, choking up rivers, and alto gether useless. Dr. Brandes has remarked that in the district were he lives, and where malaria and diarrhoea yearly appeared in a sporadic or epidemic form, these diseases have gradually decreased since the anacharis alsinastrum began to infest the neighboring rivers and marshes, and within two years have totally disappeared. The above-named water plant nour ishes itself on decayed vegetable mat ter, and grows with incredible rapidity. It thus destroys the germs which pro duce malaria aud diarrhoea; besides, its presence obliges the frequent clean sing of standing waters, a measure benefical to health. Dr. Braudes, therefore, proposes that the exper iment should be tried of pl...

NiJdl sine Lahore. APEIL 10th, 1888.
