THE JAPANESE TROUPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 4 December 1874

THE JAPANESE IKOUWk { A good audience assembled at the Town, Hall on Wednesday evening to witoeos the first performance of the troupe of Japanese performers who arrived' by the Eliza Blanche f rom-Batavia last week. The company num- bers nine artists, including jugglers, toot and shoulder balancers, top spinners, rope walkers, and acrobats, and the feats performed are truly" astonishing and must aatisry the most ardent loveis of the daring and sensational. The entertainment has several novel ieatures never ( before attempted in this country, and never more sKiUulty performed in any other. Many, it not most ot the 'feats are altogether iiqac eoantable, and the audience on Wednesday evening, and last night, attested, by frequent plaudits, thuiv amazement at the really.mar« velbus skill and dexterity exhibited. The manner in which tops are spun, balls made to revolve, sticks brandished and swung about, ladders balanced, ropes walked, and feats1" of legerdemain performed, is almost mira...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 4 December 1874

'BJ* «estent giisiraltaii tes. SOUTH NON M {XT AT GENUS. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, l«74. The debate on the estimated expendi- ture, for the ensuing year, suggests considerations, of some importance for for the future. To the resolution, that, if the inhabi- tants of the Victoria district are willing to pay the salary of a second inspector of sheep, Government be authorised to appoint such an officer, we must demur. It appears to us that, the payment of Government officials, bypiivate persons, is altogether a mistake. Those who pay the salaries of officials are in raality their masters, and by the mode of payment proposed there must be "a divided duty " and a double responsibility. We believe that the duties of sheep in- spector in that district cannot be properly performed by any one man and, although we have no reason to doubt the efficiency or the industry of the gentleman who holds that appointment, we cannot be surprised to hear that the sheep farmers, in that district, are not satisf...

BUNBURY AGRICULTURAL SHOW AND RACES. The Wellington, Nelson, and Murray Agri- cultural Show took place at Bunbury, on Wed- nesday, 24th insfc., and was an exceedingly poor one. The attendance of settlers and others waa also smaller than usual. We were sorry to see but few visitors from the Swan, and amongst them none of the notables, if we except Mr. W. Padbury, M.L.C. The weather was all that could be wished, but the show ot stock certainly was not. The dinner took place some hours earlier than usual, as if the at- tendance was on a par with the show. The chair was occupied by Mr. J. G. Lee Steere, M.L.C. A copy of the annual report, the prize list &c, will be forwarded for your next issue. The ball took place at the Wellington Hotel, on the following night. Some twenty people put in an appearance, and evidently enjoyed themselves.

CHAMPION BAY, DEC. 2ND. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 8 December 1874

CHAMPION BAT, Dbc. 2nd. The inhabitants of the Greenough Flats have again been reminded of the necessity of the greatest care being taken with regard to matches, by a very seri- ous fire which occurred at the North end of the Flats at Mr. J. Smith's, sup- posed to have been caused by the acci- dental ignition of a match. As many rumours are afloat, it may be well to give you authentic information as the whole thing is involved in mystery. Smith, like every one in this district, being short-handed, arranged with Joseph Warrener to cut his corn ; the hay being already gathered and stacked close to the house. One day, after Warrener' had been round the field some five or six times, the horses were taken out for dinner hour. ' Two of Smith's sons had already put up their horsesj and were on the hay-stack cutting out some hay for the bones. They had scarcely left the j hay-stack when a third son, who was bringing his team in for dinner/ flaw a narrow sheet of flame coming out of the stac...
