POULTRY SCRATCHINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

Rice is a good food for fowls which suffer   from diarrhœa.     Sharp grit is to poultry what teeth are to the human family.     Breed early chickens so that they may get the full benefit of the spring time. Fowls kept in cold, draughty houses will not produce good quantities of eggs. Too much feed is as bad as too little. Give just as much as can be eaten greedily. In hot weather the drinking water should be kept in a shaded position away from the sun.               Bonemeal is good for all classes of stock, and is especially valuable for growing   chickens.             Maize may be given sparingly in winter, but it should be avoided in summer alto-   gether.       To keep chickens health...

HORSE BREEDING. STARTING THE STUD. (Writteb for the SUNDAY TIMES.) NO.I. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

HORSE BREEDING.   (Written for the SUNDAY TIMES.) No. I.     The following article on Horse Breeding   is one of a series on stock and matters gene-   rally connected with farming, written speci- ally for THE SUNDAY TIMES by an able expert on the subjects treated in this and subsequent articles :— Whether it be for pleasure or profit or for   national purposes, to be successful a system must be adopted and continuously adhered to. A type of sire should be selected according to the different stamp of horse that is in- tended to be raised. This should be greatly governed by the class of country the horses are to be raised on. Some land would not produce any breed of horses successfully. Without doubt the best breed of horses throughout the world are produced, whether for heavy or light purposes, so far as quality, not glossiness, is concerned, on "limestone country," or at any rate with the lime at or near t...

SOUTH PERTH MUNICIPALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

SOUTH PERTH MUNICIPALITY. Mr. C. P. Hooper . (F. C. Parsons and Co.), has been approached by the Ratepayers' As- sociation of South Perth with a view to having him nominated for one of the coun- cillorships of that newly-declared munici- pality. Mr. Hooper however finds that his business will not allow him to devote the time he considers necessary to fulfil his obligations to the ratepayers as a councillor. Mr. Hooper being deeply interested in the development of that suburb has decided to nominate himself as auditor for the munici- pality. He is an associate of the Institute of Accountants and Auditors of W.A., and should he be elected to fill the position of auditor the ratepayers of South Perth will be well served. Sullivan's White House Market-street, Fremantle, one of the best-stocked mercery and gentleman's outfitting depots at the port, is replete this week with a splendid assortment of ties, shirts, collars, hats and underwear suitable for the cool weather season. A glance a...

LOCO. SHOPS MANAGEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

LOCO. SHOPS MANAGEMENT   Ergo Bibamus writes:—"Bret Harte once wrote, 'For ways that are dark   and tricks that are vain, the heathen Chinee is peculiar '; which the same I would write to explain. Bret Harte never had any experience in the Fre- mantle workshops, or, if he had, he would apologise to the heathen Chinee and transfer the lines to the Loco. management. It was April 3rd when a notice went round, so cunningly and deftly worded, 'Wanted expert boiler   makers' technical clerk.' Twenty-six was too old; 23 was just right —so Bully Bob said. But he smiled as he sat by the table with a smile that was childlike and bland as he told 26, 'You are too old for the job, and though your work is the best 23 is my limit, so you may go. The reputation of my country is at stake, a Maori lande I prefer and a Maori I will have,' and 26 made his exit. Twenty three got the job, and now they're as happy as happy can be. Bully Bob having got another New Ze...

AN OPTIMIST. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

AN OPTIMIST.   Uncle Finn was a good old chap, But he never seemed to care a rap. If the sun forgot To rise some day,   Just like as not, Ole Finn would say— "On common dark, this here, we're in,   But 'taint so bad, as it might 'a' been?"   But a big cyclone came along one day, An' the town was wrecked an' blown away ; When the storm was passed, We stood around     And thought at last     Ole Finn had found The state of things he was buried in About as had as it could 'a' been. So we dug him out of the twisted wreck, And lifted rafter off his neck. He was buried an' cut   And a sight to see ; He was ruined, but He says, says he,   With a weak look round and smashed-up grin " 'Taint half so bad as it might 'a' been. So I up an' low that old Finn's jist What some folk call an optimist;   Who, if he went Below, would say " Tell them that sent M...

HARVEY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

HARVEY.   ___   BY OUR TRAVELLING CORRESPONDENT The township bearing the above name is situated on the South Western Railway, 76 miles from Perth, and forms the centre of one of the richest and most permanently settled districts in the State. There are an hotel, kept by Mr. A. T. Smith (where the SUNDAY TIMES can be purchased), a store, an agricultural hall, several resi- dences, and a well-conducted school, in charge of Mr. and Mrs. Thompitt, whom the residents speak of in terms of the highest praise The Morning-   ton sawmills in the neighborhood affords support to the township. Mr. C. Wilkinson, stationmaster, and Miss   Bell, the postmistress, are also popular with the residents for the courtesy displayed by them at all times. About a mile from the township is the well- managed orangery and orchard of Messrs. A. J. Newell and R. Christi- son. The kinds of the citrons family   proven to be the most suited to &am...

BOYA TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

BOYA TROUBLES.   The residents of Boya, have several   grievances, the principal being the in-   convenience passengers to Perth and       back are put to through the late train     on Saturday evening not stopping at     Boya. Although return tickets are       issued, passengers have to go on to   Darlington, a mile further, and walk     back that distance. Another injustice   the residents labor under is their   having to pay passenger train rates on all merchandise, and the goods are   left at Darlington. One consignee   recently occupied the little siding shed   at the place named all night to watch the goods which were put out at Dar- lington. As there is a population of about 250 and 90 men at work in the Gov...

WRONGDOING WRIGHT ALBANY'S HONOURABLE COURT. BEFRIENDING THE BLACKLEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

ALBANY'S HONORABLE COURT. BEFRIENDING THE BLACKLEGS. The pretty little town of Albany, situa- ted on Princess Royal Harbor, where the mailboats used to call, has now become a place scarcely habitable. The beautiful habor is there, the bracing climate still exists, and the many enjoyable drives and walks may still be visited. But above all these advantages rises the enormous disad- vantage of having an old, decrepid indivi- dual of the name of Wright who, with the assistance of his sons, dispenses justice (?) in the varions cases that are brought before him. One scarcely knows whether to pity or to blame this unfortunate parasite. Re- joicing in the title ''Honorable," and at one time general manager of the Great Southern Railway, the Government feel in duty bound to supply him with the wherewithal to buy his daily bread. Why, goodness   only knows. There is one certainty. You could easily procure an R.M. of equal ability from the Old Man's Depot, and thus save a salary ...

RAILWAY BAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

RAILWAY BAND. Mr. Guilfoyle, the general secretary of the W.A.G.R., writes:—I am instructed to ask you to allow me to state that this asso-   ciation has nothing whatever to do with the annual pic-nic of railway employees to be held on the 26th and 28th inst. at Bays-     water.         Much pleasure is expressed by Messrs. Carter and Co., the great ready money drapers of Wellingotn-street, at the opening up ex "Ormuz," "Indralima," "Heathford," "Konigen Louise" and "Himalaya" of   their winter goods, bought by their London       agent for cash.

KALGOORLIE KETCHUP [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

I suppose the most engrossing event of the past week in this sun-kissed city of   dust and drouth has been the re-starting of the post-office clock. For two or three months past the four-faced old fraud has roosted in his pedestal, hands motionless and chimes mute, a butt for gibes and a melancholy object-lesson on the cussedness of red-tape. When it first struck work a violent controversy raged as to whether the onus of getting it going again rested on the Federal Government (which controls the     post-offices) or the State Public Works De- partment or the municipal authorities. An   acrimonious three-cornered duel was waged over the problem. Mob orators and bush   lawyers argued themselves hoarse, much printers' ink was spilled, and urgent mes- sages were flashed around the Bight to Senator Stan. Smith and other men of light and leading. After the wrangle had lasted a month the P. W.D. were finally empowered to fix ...

A CORRECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

A CORRECTION.   In the report of the case in which Mary Bloomer was charged with using abusive language, appearing in Friday's Daily News, it was stated that corroborative evidence was given that "Mrs. Buck was a perfect nui- sance." It should have read that corrobor-   ative evidence was given that the accused, Mary Bloomer, was a perfect nuisance. Mr. Flynn, produce merchant, of Cot- tesloe, draws attention to the fact that he   has on hand a splendid assortment of pro- duce, which he is prepared to deliver in   in large or small quantities at lowest prices.

LATE SPORTING NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

A meeting of the committe of the W. A. Turf Clnb will be held on Monday night. The two-year-old gelding El Koran,   nominated for the Maylands Handicap at the W.A. Turf Club's May 3 race meeting, as described by an Adelaide writer, is a big flashy chestnut gelding. He is by Koran— Virago, and won the Richmond Stakes, five furlongs, in Adelaide last Saturday fort-   night, with 7.12 in the saddle, in the good time of 1.3. This young gentleman will be   worth watching when he arrives in this State. According to the latest English sporting news, there is a movement on foot in Eng- land to try and prevent the bookmaker plying his calling on the various racecourses there. Several well-known English sports- men, who include the Duke of Devonshire, W. T. Jones, John Corlett and John   Porter spoke against the Bill at the sitting of the Lords Committee to deal with the question. As long as the British people exist betting will always go on...

THEATRI[?]AL. THEATRE ROYAL. SAN TOY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

Theatre Royal San Toy     The appearance last night of J.C. Wil-   iamson's great attraction "San Toy" was   the occasion of a crush of both the elite and the plebian. The story of the dainty little Chinese maiden, in which character Miss Rose Musgrove is simply charming, serves to introduce every element that delights the eye, pleases the ear, appeal to the senti- ments, and fixes the attention in a superbly- mounted operatic play. Music and mirth the piece never lacks, and as it is interpreted by such artists as Messrs. Fred. Graham, Wallace Browlow, Maurice Dudley, Charles Trood, Mozar, Lissaut, and Tucker; and the ladies include such stirling actresses and melodists as Miss Musgrove, Miss Engleheart, Miss Diggs, Miss Muret, and all the beauti- ful wives of Yen How, not of course, omit- ting the clever and graceful danseuse, Miss Nellie Boreberwick, the public scarely need any assurance that the entertainment was high class in i...

Our Sunday Serial THE HERMITS DAUGHTER. (Written for the "SUNDAY TIMES.") [CONTINUED.] CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

Our Sunday Serials THE HERMITS DAUGHTER. BY RODERIC TINN       (Written for the "SUNDAY TIMES.") [Continued.]     CHAPTER IX. M. Thackriere was allowed to con- tinue his visits, and Nina commenced to feel exceedingly happy in his com- pany. She became full of that dreamy life that is a sign of love's awakening   sensations and a token of the passing away of that incipient, girlhood stage that is as the beautiful grey before the rose blushes of the dawn. As for her father, he always ap-   peared happy in her company and, if   possible, was more kind to her than   ever. But when he was by himself he held painful communion with his heart. His memory floated backward to the past, and the future to him—well, it was all buried in a deep, sorrowful sigh.       There is little to relate that is specially interesting in the meetings betwe...

CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

CHAPTER Xl. Early the next day Nina, knowing that her father's resolution to live in the cave after her marriage could no be moved, took a large portion of the gold and conveyed it to the cavity pointed out to her the day previously. She did this regularly for some days, ingeniously keeping her father at home whilst she went on "particular errands" in connection with her approaching marriage. The day before the wedding-day, however, her father grew very restless. amd asked to be permitted to go and put his home in readiness, as she had been putting hers, for the future. His appeal was irresistible, and after affectionately kissing her he started for the cave. Scarcely had he departed when M. Thackriere called. "I was expecting you," said Nina,   running to give him a kiss.   "To-morrow our expectancy will be over. We shall always be together." "I am going to take you a little into my confidence today, dear," said Nina, putting her lovely arm through his and...

USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

USEFUL HINTS.     TO REMOVE FRECKLES. —Take 1oz. alum, 1oz. lemonjuice, 1 pint rosewater; shake the mixture for half an hour. Apply it to the freckles four or five times daily. TO REMOVE THE SMART FROM SUNBURN. —Poor boiling water over fresh sage and bathe the subburn with the infusion. A handful of elderflowers infused in a pint of boiling water and strained off when cold is also soothing in case of sunburn. A ready way of imitating ground glass is to dissolve epsom salts in beer and apply with a brush. As it dries it crystalizes. TO PRESERVE FLOWERS IN WATER.—Mix a little carbonate of sode with the water in which the flowers are immersed, and it will keep them much longer fresh. Common saltpetre is also a very good preservative. BLISTERED FEET.— Wash the feet as often       as possible in cold water. When going to bed drop some tallow into cold water: take   it out and rub it in the palm of your hand wit...

THE HOME. DOMESTIC CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

THE HOME. DOMESTIC CHAT. BY "PENELOPE."           I am pleased to be able to present to my readers this week something rather special in the way of Fitment Furniture, suitable for Home Decoration, and I venture to think this idea for decorating a "snuggery" or boudoir, as shown in the accompanying illustration, will be found both useful and ornamental, and would be espcially appre- ciated by those who have small homes and slender purses. To those, of course, who FITMENTS FOR A SNUGGERY OR BOUDOIR can afford to buy their furniture at the Coliseum or other large establishments of the kind my suggestions in this direction will scarcely be so valuable. My illustration shows how cleverly ugly   corners may be decorated and rendered useful with very little expenditure, as any- one with a fair knowledge of carpentering can easily make these fitments at home. The angles formed by the walls of the room make a perfe...

Cake Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 April 1902

Cake Recipes.     MADEIRA CAKE—Cream together quarter   of a pound of fresh butter and half a pound of sifted sugar. Then add, one by one, the well-beaten yolks of three eggs, mix well together, and shake in half a pound of well- dried and sifted flour, with which has been mixed two teaspoonsful of baking powder and a pinch of salt, or else half a pound of self-raising flour and a pinch of salt. Add just a little milk if the dough is too stiff, and finally the whites of the eggs whisked to a firm froth; beat well together, and use to fill a greased cake tin. Ornament the top with candied peel, and bake in a moderate oven for an hour. Try the centre of the cake with a warmed knitting needle or a steel skewer: if it should come out sticky the cake requires a little more baking. If the needle is quite bright and clear, the cake is sufficiently cooked.     SPENCER CAKES.—Break five eggs into a basin, beat in one pound of s...
