Spanked the Boy. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
Spanked the Boy. AU tne adult passengers in the waiting-1 room had their attention attracted by his antics. He wanted candy, and ha wanted to see the river, and he wanted to go aboard the train, and he wanted more than any city the size of Detroit could possiby furnish free gratis. His mother hushed him up the best she could, and several times he slapped her face and kicked her shins and got off without even a pinch. By and by an old man who sat near her, and whose feet the boy had walked on several times, began to get ner- vous, and, turning to his right-hand neighbor said " Land o' massy ! but I've either got to git outer here or spank that boy !" " He just aches for it !" growled the other. " He does. He putB rho in mind of my William. I've seen William when nothing on airth but a spanking would put good nature into him." " I say I will go ?" shouted the boy at this moment. " Please, Johnny, be good," entreated the mother. " I won't !" " Ob, do ! See how they are all looking at U...
The Dear Big Girls. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
The Dear Bier Girls. . Don't, talk to me of lovely young ladies, ef cherub ohildren, and ali the ideal youth ¿nd beauty of the romancer. Give me the big girl, thirteen or fourteen or fifteen years old. I have a apeoial fancy for her. They are mothers' Btand-bys - conscientious, good tempered creatures, who have rocked the oradles of the little ones; whose feet go untiringly up and down, and whose hands are ever busy ; whose hearts are full of deep, loyal interest in home, and of sympathy for " mother's" cares ; who help teach the little boys and dress the little girls ; who road by the hour to the small fry to keep them still, and take them all out to walk in a proces- sion ; girls who tidy the parlour, and make the beds, and run out of errands ; who never object to do anything, that is, if they are the sort of good big girls I have my eye on ; they seem anxious to do more. The work a girl of 14 will do, the energy she will ehow, the kindness she can feel, is often beyond descriptio...

Lancashire Wit. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
Lancashire Wit. A Lancaster paper publishes a specimen of looul wit. A oountryman went into a but- cher's shop for a sheep's head. In the course of conversation the butcher asked whether he wanted a Conservative or a Radical one. j The countryman, doubtless thinking of the I big loaf, the three acree, the cow, and the other blessings promised by Radicalism, chose the latter. Thereupon the butcher took a sheep's head, removed the brains, and handed it to the astonished yokel, who now wishes he had chosen the other sort.

She wove the Breeches. The ether day, down in Champaign, I witnessed ecmethting that caused the chronic Bad smile that occasionally flits across my genial features to broaden ¡uto an undoubted grin. A woman was engaged in a desperate struggle with her inebriated lord and master, endeavouring to restore him to the bosom of his family in spite of his objections. A crowd had. gathered around the pair-a crowd of nien and boys -and they were having more than a bushel of fun. " Come on !" cried the irate Venus. " Don' talksloud," cautioned her hus- band. "Come along, I say." " Yoush inter (hie) ferin' wish my pre rogerogative, madam." " Are you going to come willingly, or will I have to lead you by the ear." " Coren I am.

His only Friend. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
His only Friend. The late Lord Beaconsfield, who was not a judge of wine, though he pretended to be, . never claimed to be an authority on the sub- ject of spirits. A reason he once gave for " saying something kind" about brandy in the presence bf a person addicted to spirits j would have had a Mephistophelean ring if the subject of the observation had not been, humanly speaking, irreclaimable-" I could not speak ill of his only friend." " I should call brandy his enemy," interposed a lady. " Ah, well ; a man hates his enemy the worse for hearing him well spoken of ! " was the mild retort.
Eating and Being Eaten. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
Eating and Being Eaten, When a man and a bear meet together casually in an American forest, it makes a great deal of difference to the parties con I cerned, at least, whether the bear eats the man or the man eats the bear. We haven't the slightest difficulty in deciding afterward which of the two, in each particular case, has been the eater, and which the eaten. Here, we say, is the grizzly that ate the man ; or, here is the man that smoked and dined off the hams of the grizzly. Basing our opinion upon such well-known instances, we are apt to take it for granted far too readily that between eating and being eaten, between the active and the passive voice of the verb edo, there exists necessarily a pro- found and impassible native antithesis. To swallow an oyster is, in our own personal histories, so very different a thing from being swallowed by a shark that we can hardly realise at first the underlying fun- damental identity of eating with mere coalescence. And yet, at the very out...
How do we Taste when Roasted? [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
How do vi e Taste when Roasted ? How do we taste when roasted ? Dr. Haughton of Dublin, is probably the only Briton who is competent to answer the question by light of experience ; and we do not know whether has publicly criticized the culinary capabilities of humanity. But at a recent Coloured Methodist Conference at Washington, the assembled brethren had the privilege, according to the "Baltimore Sun," of listening to a personal statement from a converted cannibal, Professor A. E. Soloder. The Professor is a Fijian ; and he ingenuously confessed that he had eaten hu- man flesh ' many a time,' and that it tasted ¡ ' like mule.' This, unfortunately, is explain- ing ignotum per ignotiue. Some of us have ' tasted horse and liked it ; but the mule has net yet appeared in our menue. Cynics who hold Swil'tian or Carlylese views in regard to their species will not be surprised to dis- cover that we ' eat ' like mules.-" St. James' Gazette."
FERRON'S DISCOVERY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
FERROUS DISCOVERY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CHOLERA, WE are informed by a contemporary that Dr. Ferron's theory and practice of in- oculation against cholera have been con» demued by a commission of his country- men. This commission was appointed by the Spanish Government and was entire- ly composed of scientific experts. In their report they not only declared that the inoculation is devoid of prophylactic virtue, but that it actually propagates the diseas». The practice is empiric and in no wise governed by scientific rules or laws. The attenuation of the comma bacillus has not been demonstrated. These are the main poinlß, but the com- missioners add some remarks which have to be looked at critically. They say that " Dr. Ferron's inoculations cannot be con» sidered inoffensive." Of course not, but the truth is a general rather than a par- ticular one. It would be more correct to state that all inoculations are offensive, and therefore Dr. Ferron's cannot be con- sidered inoffensive, ka...
THE W.A. TURF CLUB. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
THE WA. TURF ULUB. To the Editor. SIB,-In your leading article of Satur- day last, dealing with W.A. Turf Club matters, you have specially mentioned the name of Mr, Maitland Brown as one to whom is due the credit of bringing the Club to its present satisfactory condition. As an old member of the Club, you will pardon my mentioning some other names to whom, in my opinion, even still more credit is due for the position in which the Club has now been placed. I hold that the credit and thanks of every racing man in the colony who is|eurolled among the Club's members is due in the first place to Mr. E. T. Hooley and Mr. John For \ rest-Mr. Sholl you have already men- tioned-these gentlemen it was who snatched the Club out of the fire, as it I were, and by their energy and persever- ance, ably and liberally assisted by Mr. Alex. Forrest, Drs. Waylen and Scott, and I that best of all racing men, Mr. William Strickland-not forgetting the Clerk of the Course, Mr. Geo. Parker-brought it to it...
QUEENSLAND AND THEIR MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
QUEENSLAND AND THEIR j MEMBERS. FROM a leading article says the Austra- lasian, in the Brisbane Courier we leam, an alarming piece of news. The mem- bers of the Queensland Assembly, who» voted themselves £7,000 the other day to» reimburse them the expenses they are put to in attending Parliament, are not dividing the money fairly. Payment is made by the day and according to tho distance travelled. Town members-i.e., those who live in Brisbane-are paid only for the days on which they actually at- tend the House. The member for a remote country district, who is absent from home from the beginning to the end of the session, draws £2 2s. for Sunday, Monday, and Saturday, as well as for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, which are the sitting days. The maximum allowance any one member can obtain is £200, which practically limits the time it is worth Ms while to stay in Brisbane to less than 100 days. At an earlier stage in the history of Queensland the session was determined by th...
SWAN RIVER MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
SWAN RIVER MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. -* ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING. THE annual general meeting of the members of the Institute was held in the Mechanics' hall, on Monday evening. About thirty were present, and the chair was occupied by Mr.iJ. C. H. James, one of the Vice Presidents. After the election of several new members had been proceeded with, the Chairman «ailed upon the chairman of committee, Mr. W. Dale to read the annual report, a copy of which appeared in Tuesday's West Australian. Mr. S. H. Parker while thinking the Insti ' tute might be congratulated upon the pros 1 porous condition of its finances considered it I hardly satisfactory to find there was a large j amount of arrears of subscription. He could ; not help thinking that if the committee would adhere to the rule which authorised the strik- ing from the roll all members who were in arrears witli their subseription it would tend to have the moneys paid more regularly. The idea of enlargening the reading room, mentioned in ...

MONGOOSE V. RABBIT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
! MONGOOSE V. RABBIT. ,. » Bravo Bishop writes to the Observer: Sin-I note that the Hon. E. D. Boss said we should exercise great caution in intro- ducing animals to destroy rabbits, and in- stanced the mongoose in Jamaica as having had an unfortunate result. But I cannot agree with you that from this it is clear that the introduction of the mongoose would be a mistake. On the contrary, it tends to show that however troublesome the mon- goose might afterwards become he would in the first place destroy the rabbits ; and the rabbit question has become such a terrible danger that one cannot believe any possible increase of the mongoose would compare with it for a moment. The poultry ques- tion is of no importance in the pastoral districts ; and if the mongoose spreads into the settled districts, it only remains to ask, wbioh costs the country most-to put wire netting round poultry-yards or round sheep runs? Finally, it stands to reason that an animal like the rabbit, which can live wit...
SILKWORM MAGNANARIE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886
SILKWORM MAGNAY ARIE. ? Some four or five years ago Sir Samuel Devenport had a small quantity of silkworm grain given him by the Japanese Commis- sioner at the Adelaide Exhibition, and Dr. Cleland, who takes great interest in seri culture, undertook the charge of those eggs, Í and succeeded in raising a fine healthy lot of silkworms at his residence near Parkside Lunatic Asylum. He has Igona on ¿from year to year, and has now in a model mag nanari« of his own design som« 30,000 of the industrious silk-producers, most of them already engaged in making cocoons, whits and yellow, the whits predominating, and also thousands of silkworms voraciously feeding or casting about for a suitable place to fix their final residence. The uisgnanarie is a shingle building 35 feet long, 12 feet wide, and 15 feet high to the point of the gabt« roof. It is Sued inside with calico, and has an earthen flaor ; in fast, the doctor's idea in planning it waa to show any persons, and fanners in particular, h...

C0 M MER Çt A L. McDonald, Scales, & Co., under date De- cember 11th, 1885, report : FREIGHTS.-To tho three leading Austra- lian ports the freight market generally con- tinues in a somewhat languid state. There has been a little show of miscellaneous cargo offering, but this is accounted for by the rates in certain ships (owing to severa com- petition) being reduced to merely nominal figures. The keen rivalry at Antwerp between Messrs. Tyser & Co.'s Melbourne and Syd- ney ships and those ol' the combination, mentioned in several of our previous circu- lars, appears now to have subsided, at least for the present, no vessel being on the berth to oppose the .line of ships which are now loading by the association of brokers ; things therefore on the Continent are in a more tranquil state, rates of freights there being analogous to quotations on the London mar- ket. ; Bates of freight from here are just now very weak, light cargo being somewhat short ; but the regular bro...
