DEVONPORT FIRE BRIGADE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 11 January 1899
DEVONPORT FIRE BRIGADE. With a seasonable spell of dry weather, and the inflammable nature of the material of which the majority of build ings in Devonport is composed, it is only natural to ask, ' What has become of the fire brigade ?' True, several mem bers were enrolled, not so very long ago, to comprise a 'ready and willing' contingent. Fire-fighting machinery was also installed. The firemen and plant were called into requisition for -' one or two conflagrations,; bnt since then their exercise. and practice appear to have been totally neglected. We are informed, in -fact, that- the spiders have for the nonce taken pos session of one of the hose-reels. In various. places. in the. town the particular alarm signals are placardcdfor general information, hut beyond this provision the whole organisation seems completely out of gear. A move should at once be made to reinstate the volunteers and appliances for service, so that if occasion should arise when their attend ance would be nec...
THE North Western Advocate AND The Emu Bay Times FAIR AND IMPARTIAL. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1899. THE HARVEST. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 11 January 1899
PuUUlied etery Monday, Wcdnetday, and Friday Morning. '?? ' : FAIR AND IMPARTIAL. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY U,: 1899.:. THE HARVEST. Verily the harvest of '99 proclaims a season of plenty. With copious rains and genial sunshine the. coastal lands have again ? been richly productive. Husbandmen are all astir to garner in the ample store ; the good wife, the cons, the daughters, in the fields ot at the homestead, are1 at their busiest. ; 'Tis glorious harvest-time. How different the customs of to-day when contrasted with those of our forefathers. In olden times almost every great agricultural operation had its peculiar festivities, which are now almost everywhere obsolete. Theharresr, like the ' bee ' of our American cousins, was ai\ occasion when all helped every one else in turn, and when thework was finished the harvesters partook of a substantial supper, and the; evening closed with many a dance on the barn floor. Agricultural laborers in the time of Edward III. were not allowed to work ...
Devonport Town Board. FORTNIGHTLY MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 11 January 1899
Devoniiort Town Board. FORTNIGHTLY MEETING. The ordinary fortnightly meeting of this Board, was held at tho Public Build ings, Devonport, on Monday afternoon. Present : — Messrs Luck (chairman), M'Call, Powell, Nichols, Stokes, Levy, and M'Fie. CORRESPONDENCE. C. A. Sweet wrote, drawing attention to the south end of William street, which at present was impassable, as .? it was crossed in three places with wire fences, and also by a five-foot paling fence. He had noticed in a report of a meeting of the Board some time ago that it was de cided to have the fences removed, but as yet nothing had been done. On behalf of himself and a number of others to whom the street would be a great convenience, he asked the Board to spend a few pounds in grabbing and clearing that end of the street. He considered that with the ex penditure of a small amount the street would be in a very fair state for nine months in the year. — The chairman said he had intimated to the writer that such obstructions s...

CIRCULAR HEAD PRODUCE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 11 January 1899
CIRCULAR HEAD PRODUCE MARKET. The market for potatoes will open as soon as the regular steamer to Sydney takes up her running from Stanley. Hay cutting is becoming general. The crops are very heavy, and after the recent heavy rain and winds, have been in places laid down nearly flat, testing the capabili- ties of the reaper and binder ; the test is a severe one. The potatoes look grand; the recent weather has been favorable to their growth, and there will be exception- ally good yields this season. The cater- pillar is with us, but up to the present does not show in excessive numbers, and his depredations are only of little moment. The ' take-all ' is also a ' bit sick ' since the rain. The weather is bright, warm, and seasonable for haymaking.
A WOMAN WITH A HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 13 January 1899
. A WOMAN vWITH/. X' HISTORY. A well-dressed and sharp-faced woman passed into the lawyer's office and very shortly , was standing by his desk. ' I beg your pardon,' she said, in salutation, '* but can you spare a few moments of your valuable time ?' ' I am very busy', madam,' he replied, 'but, if you have anything' oF importance 'to com municate, I shall be glad to hear it. Pray be seated.' ' Thank you, no,' ahe said, looking around at a clerk or two in a ncrrous fashion. . ' I am a woman with a history, and- ? ' ' Excuse me,' apologized tne attormy, see-. ing a fee appearing on tbe horizon, ' possibly you had better step into my private office wilh me, where you will not be interrupted.' She thanked him, and they went' into the adjoining room. ' Now,' he said/when they were seated, 'I presume you wish to coniult me on this matter of your history ?'! ?' Yes, sir. That is why I am here.' . . ' Very well, proceed. Anything you may say to me will be held in the strictest confl-_ i den...

AN ALLEGED LIBEL. CONCERNING THE MABEL MINE. Launceston,. Thursday. Some time ago a number of printed slips were circulated on the ' Corner ' among mining men, headed 'Funny Freelance ' and .' The Mabel Waltz,' and giving extracts from 'Notes 'by Free lance ' (Mr L.- Jolly) in the ' Daily Tele graph ' re work at the Mabel mine. On the bottom of the slips the imprint giving the name of the publisher was omitted. One of the circulars was sent to ' Free lance,' anil ».i th; raargin was written some scandalous remarks, a similar one being posted at the offices of the legal manager and one of the. directors. The manager of the Mabel company instituted enquiries, with the result that he has sworn two informations against a well-known, sharebroker, charg ing him under the Imprint Act with issu ing the circular, and he is also proceeding against him for libel. The first charge will come on for hearing next weeL, and the libel case will be heard in about a month or so. For' obvious reasons t...

NEW STYLE OF STACK-BUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 13 January 1899
NEW STYLE OF STACK-BUILDING. ' '^ In stack-building there are two forms generally adopted, some preferring the ronnd, ~'£ conical shape, and others the rectangular ' ?'-'? form. The' latter is less difficult to build than the former, but in both cases there is much time and trouble wasted in constructing the , top, so as to throw off the rain effectively. The peculiarity of the new style of .ftack is , , that it has a flat roof or'slightly slanting only, — .— and is covered with sheet iron, tied down ^ -g with- fencing wire to prevent it being .blown - ^i off by the wind This plan of stack-building ^ '(i has much to recommend it. All the trouble '.' .'; of pitchforking sheaves to an unnecessary _ ~r, |^ height is avoided, and a good deal ot time iB ' ^ saved in constructing, what everyone likes to -^ _ig see,- -symmetrical top to the stack.
