FREE TRADE IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

FREE TRADE IN TASMANIA. PROM Tasmania a correspondent writes : -" I fancy that the reciprocity scheme initiated by Mr. Berry trill be allowed quietly to fall through. It has a great many enemies. I was talking to a friend who owns several tanneries, and is a great employer of labour. " You see," he said, it' it were a proposition to have free-trade all round I would go in for it. But what will be the result of this ? We shut out the goods of the other colonies and only admit those of Victoria Now in Victoria there are every now and then great sales of bankrupt stocks, and we j shall be inundated with boots and shoes, for instance, selling for far less than we can make them. The consequence will be we shall be únanle to pay wages to our men and they will clear out of Tas- mania. Now there's Mr. 13., he employes seventy men, and if this passes he must shut up his factory. Nor could I com- pete with thc Victorian manufacturers." This is the opinion of the Tasmanian manufacturers genera...

WINE PRODUCTION IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

WINE PRODUCTION IN FRANCE. The total production of wine in Trance in 1884 waa 27,600,000talions leas titan in th« fwevious year, find 220,000,000 gallons less -Mian the average of the previous ten years. « may, however, probably te admitted that «te decrease since ÎS8à was due ia a great measure to the dry parching weather of the autumn, and that the superior quality of the wines, and especially of the white wines, will compensate to a large extent for the falling off in quantity. Stül, it is extremely disquieting to find, as we do from Consul Ward's report, that between 1883 and 1884 no less than 22,000 acres of vineyards wer» entirely destroyed by the phylloxera in the Gironde district alone. Since the first ap- pearance of the noxious insect the area of vineyards entirely destroyed hus been about 84,000 acres, and that of vineyards partially damaged as much OB 123,000 acres. There has, ou the other hand, been au increase of j more thau 57,000 acres in land newly plant- ed, chiefl...

THE FATE OF KING MILAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

THE FATE OF KING MILAN. - THE complete defeat of the Servians at all pointB, says the European Mail, ba» shaken King Milan's throne, and render, ed all but certain his early retirement from a position which he lias failed to adorn. The Tittie» publishes a commuai* cation from an authoritative Servian source which leaves little doubt that the Bequel to Prince Milan's reverses will be his abdication. He has, in fact, according' to information worthy of credit, decided to abdicate. His friends, it is said, aro endeavouring to secure the succession for his infant son under the regency of Prin- cess Natalie, his wife ; but the King will not hear of any such combination, and ia determined to withdraw with his family» probably to France, where he was edu- cated. In the natural course of things Peter Karageorgevics, the supposed fav- ourite of Russia, would have claims to succeed him ; and it is stated that in or- der to avert this event an Austrian occu- pation of Servia is impending.

A JAM FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

A JAM FARM. -M, At and about Swanley, St. Mary Cray, and tlie surrounding- parts, in addition to apples, pears, plutus, and cherries that have long been grown, strawberry and raspberry cultivation of late years have been largely increased, with the result that prices have been so reduced that after the cost of production is deducted the profits remaining ure insufficient. To weet this state of matters one of the largest growers, Mr. Wood, ef Woodlands Farm, Crockeu bill, Swanley, has this year started an ex- tensive factory adjacent to Swanley Station, so as to be able to convert the fruit he grows into jam, in place of, as hitherto, like other growers, having to dispose of it to the jam-makers. Tho structure is built of bricks, andáis very good-looking, substantial erection ; it was completed during the ; spting of this year, aud the requinte plant put in ready to commence opérations when the earliest fruit, strawberries, ¿c., were ripe.

ScßA-TCH ELEVEN. The match between the Fremantle eleven and the Northern team (scratch) waa played on Monday, and resulted in a victory for Fremantle. It will be seen by the scores giveu below that the Fre- mantle bowling was very destructive. Tlie Northern team was evidently out of practice, and suffered in consequence. There was a fair sprinkling of spec- tators. D. Jose, of thc Fremantle team, was the first to go in and the last out. He just missed carrying out his bat. Scores : NOETH (1ST INNINGS.)

Bank premises on the night of the 19th November last, and stealing therefrom certain vouchers. Mr. 8. Burt, prosecuted on behalf of the bank. Francis Lochée deposed : I am manager of the W A. Bank in St. George's Terrace. About seven o'clock in the morning, some six weeks ago, my attention was called to the state of one of the windows at the side of the bank. I found that some of the iron bars which protect the window had been wrenched aside. I saw some spots of grease on the floor of the bank inside. I thought the spots reoent, as lights had not been used in that room for many weeks, and the floor had been scrubbed out about a week before. I did not at the time miss anything. I Bent for the police, and two constables came. The bank and the dwelling house are all under one roof and are connected by a door. No person sleeps in...

OUR DBRBY LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

OUR DBRBY LETTER. j -? ! Death has been busy amongst as dar j ing the last month, having carried off Mrs. Mober, un<?er suspicious circum- stances reported elsewhere, a shepherd on Messrs. Emanuel's Station, of con- sumption, and an infant daughter of Mr. Blythe, a recent arrival in the district. This child tras the first born in the dis- trict audits advent was hailed, alas ! pre- maturely, with great joy. I The inquest on the death of poor Mrs. i Mober and the subaequeut trial of Mober for murder have occupied all our atten- tion during the past week. He was committed for trial, and goes down by this steamer to Geraldton. This affair will emphasize the shortsightedness of the policy of sending one man to an enormous district like this to com- bine in lüs person the offices of magistrate and doctor. In all probabil- ity Dr. Lovegrove will have to go down to give evidence of the post mortem ex- amination held by him and great ex- pense will be entailed upon the Govern- me...

MR. W. A. Chamberlain's tender at £157 fur a a boat for the water police service has been accepted. THE Dangerous Goods Act came into force on the 1st instant, and no officers it is said have been appointed to issue licenses. NEWS was received by the last mail of the death in Queensland, of Mr. L. H. S. Gould, who was for some years resident in this colony. A YOUTH named Ward was admitted to the Perth hospital on Saturday suffering from injuries sustained by beiug thrown by the race horse Fenian. WE are told that persons desirous of ob- taining gun licenses do not know whore to apply for them, no one it appears hav- ing been appointed to issue them. His Excellency the Governor and Lady Broome, with a house party, are now staying at the Government cottage, Rott- nest, where they will probably remain during the worst of the summer heat.

HYDROPHOBIA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

HYDROPHOBIA. -« IT is well recognised that fear or nervous apprehension can induce a fatal disease having nearly.if not all, the characteristics of hydrophobia, " But, says the Lancet, it is not true to assert that hydrophobia is. always brought on by the mental anxiety that a dog-bite not infrequently occasions. We make these plain asser- tions because some of our weekly con» temporaries have thought fit to regard the " hydrophobic panic," as they cali it, as unwarranted and xnischevious in ita working. Certainly anything like a panic is sure to be repressed, and on no occasion in life eau a " panic " benefit, though it may har», a community. Hydrophobia is a nervous disease, but it has a material cause, a poison, which is most likely a '* germ " or micro-organism. It ie a curious fact that birds, even when inocu- lated with the poison of rabies, do not suffer from the disease. . We have frequently mentioned the fact that Borne individuals appear to enjoy, with birds and other anim...

WORK TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

WORK TABLE. DBAWW WOBK.-This pretty and ef- fective work may be used for many things such as dressing bags, toilet mats, etc. Very coarse holland is required. Cut into whatever shapo is required by the worker. Then draw say half a dozen threads out straight across ; leave a plain piece of the holland and then again draw half a dozen threads and so on. Draw threads crosswise to this when the holes will form squares. Cross the squares formed with white darning cotten.

MACÉAME LACE WORK.-This in- teresting and beautiful work does not, I am afraid, occupy tho position in this co- lony it ought to do, or deserves.

Mr. Rotton read the lecture as reported in the West Attstralian, and commented upon it. He said that Mr. Gribble had been stabbing in the dark, that the lecture was a tissue of misrepresentation.

OBSCURE DISEASES IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

OBSCURE DISEASES IN SHEEP. The following report of oue of the pro- vincial veternary Burgeons of the Royal Agricultural Society was received at the Slay meeting of the council :-" On March 13 last, at the instance of F. E. Kew, Esq., of 39 Eastcbeap, London, through his bailiff, I was requested to attend at Rushden Lodge Farm, Northampton, to ascertain the nature and cause of the disease by which a great number of ewes aud lambs had died shortly after lambing. I at once proceeded to the said farm, and found the total number of down lambing ewes at first consisted of 278. Of this number 188 had already lambed, thus leaving ninety ewes to lamb. Thirty ewes had died, also sixty lambB ; there were eight ewes seriously ill, four of these eight subsequently died, the percentage of deaths in the number of lambed ewes being about eighteen. I was first shown the 'ninety ia lamb ewes, most of them being the result crossed lately by the Lwcolu breed, a number of them being tlieaves. The con di...

USEFUL HINTS 20 POULTRY KEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

USEFUL HINTS 20 POULTRY KEEPING. . -+ In winter end early spring, when fowls cannot procure insect food, tbey should have meat a few times a week to stimulate and keep up egg production. Grain and green food in variety will do a large amount of work towards giviug us a good share of eggs, but with the addition of animal food the number will be largely increased. Green food is fully as essential for poultry in winter as in summer. Their confinement to dry food during the continuance of cold weather goes far to account for the scarcity of eggs at this season of the year. Fresh winter eggs are always in demand, and bring a good price in every market. Hens, like cows, should be producers as well as iouBumera during the cold months of winter. Farmers, as well as fanciers, should have a supply of green food safely B cored away for the winter use of the poultry. Fowls are not very particular as to the kind ; they readily oat celery, tops of onions, turnips, etc. ; lettuce, cabbage, and app...

BRAVERY UNREQUITED. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

BRAVERY UNREQUITED. To the Editor, SIB,-It is now about twelve months I since I was an eye witness of a fire at j I Geraldton, when the premises and stock in trade of tho firm of Messrs. Gale, Mon ger & Go. were entirely destroyed. The most prominent workers, in extinguishing the flames, were two young men named Bowe and Carlson, and where there was the greatest danger of the conflagration spreading those two yonng men were to ba seen, sometimes pu the top of a red hot wall throwing water on the burning flames beneath or on a windowsill, with an uncertain footing trying their utmost to subdue the devouring element. But the most daring act of bravery was the climbing the flagstaff attached to the Geraldton Hotel when the roof had taken fire and the building was threatened with total destruction. It was there that Bowe and Carlson, to the astonishment of the crowd beneath, sncceeded in reaching with axe and rope in hand the top of the building, and while one handed up buckets ...

SPOUTING GOSSIP. (BY VINDEX.) I The annual race meeting of the W. A. Turf Club ie over, and with it have passed away hopes and fears that for weeks past have occupied many breasts. The vexed question as to whether Tre- mando was really the champion horse of W. A. has been settled. For weeks past many people have steadily supported Barley Bree and Hero, and even Aus- tralian for the Queen's Plate. No doubt, many of them looked upon Tremando as an " unknown quantity' which might be found short of Barley Bree and the others. Had they, however, for a mo- ment looked at Tremando's record they would have seen that he had been brought np in a clever stable, that of the Hon, J. White's, that he had always run in good company, and tbat be had never dis* graced himself. When he ran for the Champion Cup, in which Commotion did such grand time, Tremando was very heavily backed all over New South Wales to wiu. - He did fall short of Champion- ship form, hut not far, and he was near enough to it ...

THE BAD BOY IN COURT. Tue^Vbad boy" of literature has got iuto tiie courts-not as a defendant, as he ought to be, but as a witness. His mother, a resident of Harlem, New York, sues his father for a limited divorce. He objected to her going to church four nights of the week, and twice on Sunday, and emphasized his views, according to her story, by rapping her with his knuckles, wringing uer neck, and accus- ing her of immoral behavior. The "bad boy,"a youth of 14, came on as a witness for his mother, and had it out witb his father's lawyer. On be hg .asked if he ever said his father mal-, treated his mother he answered, " Well, .
