PERTH RACE COURSE. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

PERTH "RACE COURSE. I FROST THE WEST AUSTRALIAN j WHEN it was decided to «pend a couple of thousand out. of tho new ) un ci upon constructing a line of rail- way to connect the capital with ils i race course the poiicy of doing so was questioned in some quarters. The money, it waa said, would be thrown away, and would not be spent with due regard to general public benefit, the object being too purely local. This view of the question we combatted -at the time, and the experience of the race meetings on Friday and Saturday last upholds us iu the line we took. For the numbers present on the course were unprecedented, taking into con- sideration the terrible weather. The gathering was representative of all parts of the colony, and the railway, there can be no doubt, largely contri- buted to the success of this year's Western Australian racing carnival. But another view we took was also up- held-that it is absolutely necessary the line should be carried across the river and up to the gra...

The post mortem was held and the jury viewed the body and the inquest was then adjourned to Derby and the evidence was taken there on the 15th December. Reports had for some time been cur- rent to the effect that Mrs, Mober was being neglected and ill-used by her hus . band, who was actually in Derby at the time ef his wife's death. As will be seen below the evidence end the verdict of the jury tended to confirm these rumours and a warrant was issued for the apprehension of Thomas Mober. The inquiry was held before Dr. Love grove the Govern ment Resident as Coroner for the district, and the jury consisted of Messrs. J H. Gregory (Foieman) G. C. liose and Charles Hose.

LEADERS UNDER A CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

LEADERS UNDER A CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT. [FBOH THE WEST AUBTKALIAN.]. WE have frequently said that the method in which the advocacy of con- stitutional ehange has been conducted has, in a large degree, been the cause ol the small progress the movement has made. That movement, it is safe to say, had as many friends a dozen years ago than it has now, and had more vitality. And what has been the cause of this ? The movement has in it all the elements which usually bring popular- ity, and yet it has languished. It has never fairly taken hold of the people. There are t wo reasons for^this. The first is that the people, like all peoples of English race, have a large amount of practical common sense. They feel-however much they might like to imitate their neighbours and govern themselves ou a totally indépendent footing-that, in their present circum- stances, and until they have a somewhat larger and more evenly distributed population, and a larger reserve of men fitted for and experienced in...

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

KITCHEN. I wish this week to sar a few words on pudding cloths. Pudding cloths ara BeBtinadeof unbleached calico. Choose -an open calico, which should be cat square and hemmed. Scald it well before using it ; indeed it is advisable to let it boil in a saucepan for half an hour. Soap 6hould never be used when washing pud- ding cloths, bat a very small piece of washing soda in the water will greatly assist in making them wholesome, care being taken to rinse thoroughly in clean - warm water afterwards. Put them in the air to dry. Servants as a rule are careless of pudding cloths. They imagine if <fhey put them through the same water as they use to wash up the dinner dishes it is sufficient. This I consider a filthy practise, especially in this hot climate, where cleanliness is imperative. It is advisable to have at least two pudding -cloths, a large and a small one. Be- fore using, dtp your cloth into boiling wa- tter ; afterwards dredge it veil with flour. A coarse net shou...

THE BELLE OF BLOO VALLEY. [FROM THE HOME CHIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

T - TBE BELLE OP BLOO VALLEY. BY CHABTJES KSHJGEE. j [FEOM THE HOME CHIMES.] The little vale of Bloo waa dull with silence. Scarcely a sound was beard, save the jarring voice of the rooks as tbey flew to their abode. Close at Tiand was the town of Cardley, and "here at the outskirts und built on a befitting eminence was Cardley Castle, with its massive outer walls. Hound two-thirds of tbe wall's extent was a comfortable path, wide and seated, which was free and open for the use of all who would use it properly. Spread out beneath this was Bloo Valley,-green and kine covered. The trees thereon were black and leafless ; the river Bloo went its placid coarse and made a BÜver streak through the "vale ; and the blue line of hills in the tar distance seemed to meet the lighter blue of the sky. The canopy right above was grey in colour ; it was a mild morning, but no sun waa seen. A young man walked on the castle path, and lashed the brown dead leaves with his cane. Very often he and looke...

OSTRICM FARMING. THE Cohniee and India says:-" A pro- posal has been made to introduce ostrich farmiug into Wes'.ern Australia, and a select committee of the West Australian Legislative Council has reported favour- ably on the scheme, which is brougkfc forward by a Mr. Lempriere, who asks for a grant of 5,000 ucres as a subsidy iff he introduces the industry. Ostrich, farming, so far as it has been frifd in other perts of Australia, lias, we believe» resulted vi-ry favourably, and Western Australia would seem to offer as ¡rood an opportunity as any other patt of the con- tinent.

Farm and Station. A GOOD DAIRY COW. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

A GOOD DAIRY COW. The "Breeder's Journal" says it is hard ] to estimate in dollars and cents the exact value of a dairy cow. There is a vast differ- ence between the milk, butter, and cheese producing qualities of different animals. This is also true between different cows of "the same breed. All Jerseys are not equal- ly good butter cows ; all Holsteins will not give an equal quantity of milk ; all Ayr shires wilt not produce the same amount of good, rich milk, nor are their teats all equal- ly short. Those who wish to breed a dairy herd must make it a study. Ct is not ne- cessary, to start with thorough bred females. The sire of the herd should, however, be a thorough bred animal, not that only can be but is recorded in the Herd book. The expense of recordiag is a small ite JJ and it guarantees the purity of the animal. The foundation on which a man intends to build years of work should not be open to any chance of being defective. After ha ring decided, by actually examining the ...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

NEW ZEALAND. ? A NEW ZEALAND correspondent writes : ~ -"The fall in value of all our staple productions is a matter of great serious- ness to our national and individual finances.. It is a rare thing now to hear of New Zealand stations being bought with foreign money. The fall in cereal produce is restricting cultivation, and our railways are not consequently so well employed. The pinch of money pressure» is reducing employment, and I fear at the present time there is no little real distress» Outwardly all is prosperous. Standing on the margin of the beautiful waters|of the Waitemata, looking at the green volcanic hills dotted with their snug villar, and surrounded with foliage of every conceivable kind, while men-of-war are anchored safely in the stream, and the» ships aed steamers of commerce ply their way to and from our piers, no stranger to» New Zealand could imagine the scene» otherwise thau as illustrative of the high- est degree of comfortable prosperity;* but let him be a b...

POULTRY DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 9 January 1886

POULTRY DISEASES. Fully nine-tenths of the diseases from which fowls suffer are simply and Bolely caused by vermin. Careful investigation has established this as a fact* The comb of a fowl may be considered its healthful indicator. The first iutitttation a close ob- server of his flock has, is the condition of their comb. Comparatively few birds in their natural, wild state die of disease. They have certain ways to keep themselves comparatively free from lice; 50 are not crowded in a space where only 25 should be : nature's (bird) laws are not trans- gressed, and they thrive in health. With domestic fowls it is different; they are crowded together, become lousy, and get the "cholera," roup, canker, and various so forths-none which would they have if lice were not preying on their bodies-un- less roup, which is caused by several things. To avoid many of these troubles, watch your poultry, aud the first time you see a nen mopiug round or refusing to eat, or one with feathers rumpled u...

On Saturday night the deceased and another man went down to the Wil- liam Street Jetty. The deceased had had some drink. He stripped and went into the water for a bathe. Three boys then also went in to bathe, and afterwards two men also stripped to bathe. One of the latter men swam under water for such a distance that he took the attention of witness and his companion from the deceased. When they looked for the   deceased immediately afterwards he was not to be seen. One of the two men who were swimming said-—" Your mate is drowned," and witness replied—-"No fear, he is too...
