SPORTING THE CANNING RACE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

SPORTING THE CANNING RACE MEETING. -« Stewards-Messrs. F. J. Liddelow, F. R. James, W. L. Gibbs, Jos. Harris, and A. J. Lawrence. Judge-A. J. Lawrence. Starter- H. Martin. Clerk of Course - John Harris. , Secretary-W. Mason. This pleasant little race meeting was held on Monday, and proved in every way & success, The weather was all that could be desired, the heat being tempered by a cool breeze. Though the attendance was not large, it was a representative one, for from all points of the compass people rode or drove to the meeting. The course was iu very fair trim, considering that the track has received little moro attention than clearing. There was, however, a narrow beaten track round the course, made by the horses in practice, and it was noticeable that when racing the animals al- ways endeavoured to get iuto it. It would be much better if, in future, the inside half of the course wero protected, prior to the race meeting, by hurdles being put across it at intervals. In t...

CRICKET. METROPOLITAN v. FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

CRICKET. Metropolitan v. Fremantle. One of the chief local cricketing events of the year was decided on Saturday on the Rec- reation Ground, Perth. The opposing teams were an eleven of the Metropolitan C.C. and an elevon of the Fremantle C. C. It íb now some four years since the Fremantle men proved victorious in this annual match, but on Saturday they fairly had their revenge for past defeats. They had all the best of it from start to' finish, and won by au in- nings and 34 runs. The match created a considerable amount of interest, and a good company of spectators was present during the greater part of the time. Wickets were pitóhed shortly after 10 a.m., and at about half past the Fremantle men took the field, the Metropolitans taking up the defensive. George Parker and E. Sholl were sent to the batting orease to the attack of Bateman and Turner. Bateman took the first over, and beyond a run to each bat, nothing of impor- tance transpired. This bowler seemed to be fairly on the wi...

Farm and Station. BEEKEEPING. INCREASE OF STOCKS. SYDNEY MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

furn _ taSL JBMbNk BEEKEEPING. -*, INCREASE 01? STOCKS. Bv J. T Syd s UV Mail. As this is the swarming period of the year with bees perhat* a few practical hints as to the methods of increasing stocks arti- ficially may be acceptable to beekeepers. Bees are capricious in the matter of swarm- ing in this colony. There seems to be no certainty of their sending out swarms. Some years they swarm abundantly, while in other seasons 20 or 30 colonies will not produce half a-dozen swarms. It is difficult to account for this non-regularity of increase, especially iu seasons when everything seems favourable for increase. I keep my bees in an open shed facing the east, but closed on the western side, und luve thought that the shading of the hives from the midday sun may bave~4iad something to do with the failure to swarm ; but other, keeping bees expoBsd to the weather have similar ex- periences; theiefore some other cause must be in operation. It may be that the disease known as "foul brood,"...

Her passengers for this colony were Messrs Boreham, Ogberne and Welton. The Caledonian sports, which took place on Boxing Day on the Guildford Show- ground, were fairly well attended, as many as 700 persons travelling up to the little village by the 10.30 train. The terrible heat, however, was trying in the extreme, and somewhat interfered with the day's enjoyment. The attendance at the sports advertis- ed to be held at the Albion Grounds on Boxing Day was not very large, owixg probably to the counter attractions else- where. We understand that owing to unavoidable circumstances Mr. Edwards, the pedestrian did not attempt the feat of walking seven miles vsithin one hour. Messrs. F...

Our Novel. A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARIS. "A stern chase is a long chase." THE FIBST PABT. CHAPTER III "FAIR INES." [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 2 January 1886

A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. "A stern chase is a long chase."   THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER III "FAIR INES."     The residence of Don Saturnino de Rodas dated back to the good old times, and boasted their style of ar- chitecture. Those three enemies of mankind in the tropics, heavy rains, excessive heat, and earthquakes, had been warily borne in mind by the original De Rodas. The house, though spacious enough for all the re- quirements of life and comfort, was composed of but one storey, and its   walls were of no costlier material than lath and plaster. A vast sala, which, being the chief reception-room, had a marble floor, occupied the central place in a building that wore a bare and comfortless look to strangers' eyes until they had grown accustomed to it, from the fact that the beams sup- porting the tiled roof were visible throughout. But the wisdom of not providing heavy ceilings to living- rooms in...

A HOT WEEK. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

A HOT WEEK. j FROH THE WEBT AUSTRALIAN j BY common con sont the summer of 1885-6 set in unusually late. Well into December the temperature con- tinued for thc most part ut a com- fortably low point. But whatever may have been the previous short- comings of our Western Australian sun, be took care to make ample amends before he had seen the old year buried with due honours. Ac- cording to the incontestable evidence of that ubiquitous witness, the oldest inhabitant, and there ure some of very high antiquity in this colony, never has a burst of heat so con- tinuous, intense, and unrelieved by the slightest change, been previously experienced in Perth, prior to Christ- mas time. The readings taken by the Government Meteorologist certainly cast no discredit on the veracity of our ancient friend. The heat, it will be remembered, steadily culminated during the^week, until on Boxing Day, Saturday the 26th, the ther- mometer registered 107 degrees in the shade, a frightful heat for a town ly...

EXPERIMENTS IN EGG PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

EXPERIMENTS IN EGG PRE- SERVING. ? Very maur expérimente hare been made of late years as to the preservation of eggs, and at the London Dairy and at the Bir- mingham Fat Stock Show during the last two years prizes have been offered for eggs so preserved. These, as well as many private tests, have shown that the lime water system, all things considered, is the best. A pound of lime, says the Grocer, should be allowed to every gallon of water used, and the two well stirred together. This preparation excludes the air and any germs that might cause mildew or mould. At the same time, os the evaporating materials is equally moist with that within there can be no evaporation, and the con- tents of the egg are not at all reduced in bulk, lt is important that there should be a sedimeut of lime at the bottom of tho water, for lime is very sparingly soluble in water, and if cioar lime liquid is exposed to the au- the uppur surface absorbes carbonic acid, and the lime is converted into insol- u...

REVIEW. THE DAWN OF CREATION AND OF "WOESHIP. BY H. C. " At the venerable age of nearly 76, General of one of the two largest armies that the world has ever seen engaged in electoral strife, troubled beyond measure < by the hopeless disngreements and jea lousies of Iiis Captains, tho greatest commoner of England has found time to turn the full power of his marvellous in» telligeuce upon the Dawn of Creation and of Worship." (19th Century for November.) Dr. Réville, a Professor in the College of France, has written a work on the origin and history of religions, by which he seeks to prove that all religions ori- ginated in " a strong human appetite for that kind of food" and not in primitive lerelation. In support of his contention ho refers to the mythology of Homer and Mr. Gladstone's writings thereon, and it is tl_o liberties he has taken with these which has tired the pen of the Grand Old Man, who begins his "Reply" in the apologetic manner now proverbial of him. He say...

ANEMIA; OR WASTING AMONGST SHJCEP. There is no more com mou and fatal dis- order amongst young oafctio and sheep than anre'uiu, or bloodlessness, but none withal which is so readily prevented, Professor Robertson, who during many yeats' resi- dence at Kelso was well kilowa throughout the south of Scotland, aud who now ably and zealously fills the iniportaut position of Principal of the Hoy di Veterinary College* London, contributes to the recently publish- ed nuiuber of the Journal of the Royal Agri- cultural Society of England a valuable ar- ticle on anaemia in sheep. The complaint, he mentions, is recognised under the various terms of wasting, huuger-rot, and blood-rot. lt is not confined to Great bril inn, but ap- pears wherever food is scant, indigestible, or iuuutniive ; it prevails, especially during winter and spring, chiefly amougst young growing sheep and breeoiug ewes, on whose nutritive resource there are extra demands. itB most common form consists >n diminu- tion of ...
