YORK YOKELS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

YORK YOKELS. Some little time ago an enquiry was held by two well-plumaged officers of the Defence force into certain charges made by the local infantry against   their burly and ignorant commander, the head serang apparently of the gropers' headquarters, York. The complaints against the insufferable and nasal-twanged Cowan were—firstly, that he had no ability whatever to command a corps ; and secondly, that although their pay was forwarded to this individual they had often to wait months ere it was forthcoming. Being the local beak (U.M.) the men were rather timid of pressing their claim. (By the way this same potentate has not paid his subscription to the local Jockey Club, although application has been frequently made to him for same.) However, the enquiry proceeded.   Several of the infantry testified as to the Total Incapacity of Cowan in a manner which, if made in front of "Dicky" Haynes, would make even   that square-jawed gentleman blus...

BUSINESS NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

Messrs. Condit and Launder, fashionable   tailors, 412 Hay-street, are now showing the latest selection of new season's goods, and are making a specialty of dress suits. They   also make hats of all kinds to order. S. Dvoretsky, the wood and coal merchant of Beaufort-street, will deliver wood to an address, and guarantee full measure, and at the same time really good dry wood. Attention is directed to Barnard's Free- masons' Hotel, Busselton, advertisement. The hotel is the nearest to the railway   station, and affords first-class accommoda- tion. The hall adjoining has sitting room for 400. Visitors can be driven to the caves if desired, and horses and traps can be had at any time. The hotel is the essence of cleanliness, and the host himself is courte- ous and obliging to all. Fremantle, considering the steady flow of traffic to and from tram and boat, is but   sparsely supplied with establishments offer- ing comfortable bed and ...

A PRACTICAL TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

A PRACTICAL TEST "I have had 20 years' experience of news-   paper advertising, and have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars with the daily news-   papers, but I am mostly using the weeklies   now. A man picks up a daily and glances   at the telegrams first, then perhaps at the report of a meeting in which he is interested, or at the sporting or some other item, and then throws it away. He hasn't time to even think of the advertisements, and if he   had, in a few hours the paper is useless, because it is superseded by the next issue. But a weekly is different. It goes home, its articles are read, it is looked through from   beginning to end, and it last until the next issue appears a week later. But, above all,   it is carefully read on Sunday. All the great advertising firms of the world are with     me in this. Look at the marvelous growth of the American and Eng...

The Sunday Times SUNDAY, APIRL 20, 1902. RAILWAYS AND RUIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

THE SUNDAY TIMES SUNDAY, APRIL 20, 1902 RAILWAYS AND RUIN. In the report of the Select Committee of the Legislative Assembly appointed to inquire into the frauds of the Perth Ice Company upon the Railway De- partment appears this pregnant para- graph:—"That other officials of the     Railway Departments have been guilty of negligence; but your committee does not feel justified in recommending any further dismissals without entering   much more fully into the charges which have arisen against them. Your com- mittee, therefore, recommends that a Commission be appointed to consider the conduct of the Railway Depart- ment and of the various officials, more particularly those in responsible po- sitions, who, by their negligence, have contributed to these frauds." That report was signed on the 9th of October, 1900, and the recommendations of the Select Committee and those of the subsequent Royal Commission on the Railways and Customs Depart- ment hav...

WHITE SAVAGES. RAPES AND MURDERS. POLICE INTIMIDATED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

RAPES AND MURDERS. POLICE INTIMIDATED. The Aborigines Protection Board, and H. Prinsep, the secretary, might just as well go and bury themselves in the desert of Sahara for all the protection they give to the native black. Undoubtedly the board is harassed, as is every other body in the land of "that tired feeling," by the supine hebetude of the Government authorities; but considering the great expense of this sub-department there is no excuse whatever for the board's continued existence whilst such crimes against the blacks as those we have here to relate are repeatedly perpe- trated. It is bad enough to receive, as we did this last week, the report of a wedding in Wyndham where the happy pair were an opulent Chinaman and a gin—a wedding   that was celebrated with the traditional de- corum and attended by crowds of spectators.   It is not our intention either to dwell on the fact that large teams are constantly leaving Wyndham, the teams being laden with h...

CYNICAL SYNOPSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

CYNICAL SYNOPSIS "All the venal crowd." —Byron. They hare christened the Premier Lazy Leake.       Dr. Leyds says in effect there will be no peace until he has had a say in it. Rason is delighted that the Coolgardie   Scheme pumps will pump.         Barton is to be bearded on arrival at Fre- mantle during his homeward trip to crown Dick Seddon. Moorhead bas worked hard for the Fourth Judgeship. Will he work as hard now he   has got it? The Britishers in Japan are protesting against being taxed—by the new taxes, at least, of the Japanese. The York Infantry is now a thing of the   past. To spare an officer it has been dis- banded. This is Russia's chance. Demouncey, the civil service handle for   Tom Molloy in the theatrical line, is trying to wipe out the Hebrew figures on his slate. By the death of Dr. Talmage the lovers of pulpit oratory hav...

"To cheat thee of a sigh, Or charm thee to a tear." —MOORE. The travelling correspondent of a daily,   writing up a farming district, alludes to a   well-known stud farm as "a link with the   past." Studs and links. . . . .. Adelaide wire, solemnly printed in the Kalgoorlie Miner :—''A man named Fredk. Mabelson, shortly after shaking hands with   a woman in Pirie-street, dropped down dead.'' ....       "Elector" writing in a daily contemporary complains bitterly of what he terms "the   lassitude of Labor members in the House,"   intimating that they have not fulfilled their election promises of "raising Cain generally   in the legislative balls."   To earn "Elector's" highest praise   They've tried in vain:     The only Cain, alas, they raise Is "sugar-cane." ....     &n...

STEAMERS OR SHAMBLES CROWDED COASTAL COFFINS. BUCCANEERS OF THE BUNINYONG. Cattle Hulks and Hocussed Passengers. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

STEAMERS OR SHAMBLES CROWDED COASTAL COFFINS. __________________     Cattle Hulks and Hocussed Passengers. The following letter from a correspondent gently leads us into the dragon's den of the shipping companies :—"Having a relative on board the s.s. Perth en route for Fre- mantle, I daily watched the West Australian   shipping notes to ascertain the time the boat was likely to arrive at the port. I was anxious as to the date and hour of arrival because it requires time, money, and expense to make the journey from the metropolis to Fremantle to meet an incom- ing steamer. My relative being a stranger to the West, I was anxious to give him a     welcome as soon as the boat was moored.   Well, I saw in the shipping notes that the s.s. Perth left Adelaide on the 21st March. That information had its value. Then I watched for notification of the expected arrival at Albany. But the next informa- tion was a disa...

STRANGE HYBRIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

STRANGE HYBRIDS. What has been described by scientists in England as an "impossible hybrid" is the produce of a union between two such dis- tinct species of animals as the sheep and the pig. This hybrid, called in Mexico the cuino, is said to be of frequent occurrence in Mexico and parts of Brasil, and to be much in favor with the inhabitants of those regions. The first announcement of the existence of this hybrid was received with contemptuous ridicule, but it was noticed that references to the cuinos in some Ameri- can papers were fairly numerous and evi- dently made in good faith. The question as to the existence of these hybrids was dis- cussed at some lengths in the columns of the Field, and some very startling evidence was given by persons who stated that they had raised cuinos. In the Field of September 29, 1901, a letter appeared which was taken from the Breeders' Gazelle, U.S.A., in which a circumstantial account was given of the manner in which the hybrids were raised and ...

SHELTER FOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

SHELTER FOR COWS.   Few dairy farmers realise the importance   of providing shelter for their herds. Dur-   ing the last two seasons a spell of cold and   stormy weather in the spring affected pro- duction to an enormous extent, and stock did not recover for a considerable time     afterwards. This is a common experience; in fact, it occurs so frequently as to be almost the rule, yet the obvious lesson does not seem to have been learned. If the autumn rains are late in coming there is always a great scarcity of grass, and the cattle cannot go through the winter with- out serious loss of condition; while if the   spring is not particularly genial a further tax on the stamina of the animals takes   place. Next to providing abundance of   succulent food, the most important point in the management of dairy herds is keeping them warm and comfortable during cold or stormy w...

HINTS FOR THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

HINTS FOR THE DAIRY. The food from which the best-flavored dairy produce is obtained is mixed pasture from selected grasses: Foods such as turnips, mangolds, rape, green lucerne, and many bitter pungent- tasting weeds all taint milk more or less. Turnips taint milk much more than man- golds, rape, or luceme. If rape and luceme be allowed to wilt in the sun for some hours alter being cut, and fed to the cattle imme0 diately after being milked, the taint will be   very slight, and if the resulting milk be scalded or pasteurized the taint will dis- appear and the resulting butter will be satisfactory.   Milk obtained from pastures where in- jurious plants like "wild mustard," "wild carrot," etc., grow, should also be pas- teurised if it is to be used for high-class butter-making. It is sometimes claimed that ensilage will taint milk. There is no reason why it should do so provided the ensilage has been properly saved and made from suitable material. Ensilage-m...

POULTRY SCRATCHINGS. FURNISH BOTH LIME AND GRIT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

POULTRY SCRATCHINGS FURNISH BOTH LIME AND GRIT. One of the mistakes made in winter poultry is the feeding of either grit or bone instead of both. It should be remembered that the laying fowls require some material that contains lime in order that a proper shell shall be formed for the egg, but it should also be remembered that nothing used for this purpose is suitable for grit to assist the fowl in grinding the food in the gizzard. Feed oyster shells, or better, green bone, for the latter contains not only the elements of lime necessary to the making of the egg-shell, but has a food value in making flesh. If green bone is used it should be fed in small quantities daily and not kept before the fowls at all times, which may be safely done with oyster shells. For grit use any- thing that may be broken into small, sharp bits, such as broken crockery, flower pots, or soft, flat stones ; even coal ashes will answer the purpose if hard and gritty. Whatever material is used should be kept b...

BREEZES FROM BROOME. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

BREEZES FROM BROOME. Our correspondent writes: — Things are quiet now in Broome as all the pearling ves-     sels have left for the pearling grounds after the lay-up season's general overhaul. News of another good find has been received but particulars are not forthcoming just yet. The pearl buyers, however, are buzzing around, betraying unusual eagerness. There are several new pearlers this season, and, indeed, every year adds to the number. A mistake, however, is being made by the promiscuous shipment of incompetent and   unreliable men from South. These men are engaged in Fremantle by some skipper to assist in bringing luggers to the port, and they are evidently given to understand that employment is inevitable the moment they land. This is wrong, as unless these men are competent divers there are few chances of work in other directions for strangers, and we think that the unemployed unpro- fessional man should be warned against coming to so...

THE KANGAROO PROBLEM [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 April 1902

Among the people in the bush various theories are current as to how young marsupials are born. In the case of the kangaroo the com-   monly accepted belief is that the young are formed in the nipple in the pouch, and it is often difficult to convince bushman of the impossibility af that theory. I obtained not long since a young grey kangaroo (macropus giganteus) which had just been born, and which the mother was on the point of trans- ferring to her pouch when she was shot. When the young one is ready for birth the mother sits on the ground, often with her back to a tree, and having her tail stretched out in front of her (as can be seen in a photograph which has been taken for scien- tific purposes). The little one fairen born in VIEW OF NEWLY-BORN KANGAROO   the ordinary way, on to the soft fur of the   underpart of the tail. The mother holds   her pouch open with her two fore paws, and taking the helpless mite in her lips, transf...
