MILITARY TESTAMENTS. [FROM THE ST JAMES'S GAZETTE"] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

MILITARY TESTAMENTS. [JTBOM THE ST JAMES'S GAZETTE"] Lord St. Vincent lying mortally woun- ded in the Soudan, and writing down in the leaf of hia pocket-book a codicil to Iiis will was exercising a privilege which has for more than nineteen centuries belong- ed to members of the military profession. Julius Caesar is always said to have been the inventor of this indulgence, whereby soldiers in active service ave exempted from the usual formalities attendant upon the making of a will. The privilege was extended and increased by Nero, Trajan, and other emperors right down to the time of Justinian, who lias left his mark upon the rules relating to the matter by the addition to them of two of those, ab- j surdities in which he was wont to in- j dulge. The first is the extension of the right of informal will-making to deaf-and-1 dumb soldiers-as if such men were ever likely to be employed on active service and the other is the explanatory state- ment in the Institutes, that this exemp- ti...

A RACE FOR LOVE. [FROM THE HOME CHIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

A EACE FOE LOVE. _ BY PHILIP BOURKE MARSTON. [FEOM THE HOBIE CHIMES.] When pretty Alice Fairfield juted John Smith, the rich New York stock- broker, no one was surprised-not even the luckless gentleman himself, who deep down in his heart had had a Îresentiment that something of the ind would happen. She always had wondered why she took him at all? a question which she asked herself later on ; and not being able to answer it to her own satisfaction she, said to him one day : "John, dear, would it make you ?ery, very unhappy if our engagement urere to be broken off ?" She had a pretty voice, and it trem- bled then with pleading music. " Yes," replied Smith, " it would make me most unhappy." " I am so sorry," came from her al- most in a whisper, " because I am go- ing to ask you to release me. It's not my fault. I was mistaken. I find I don't love you as much us I thought I did. ' " You're a heartless flirt, that's what you are !" rejoined Smith, whose command of words was not great. "...

THE NATIVE TROUBLE. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

THE NATIVE TROUBLE. [FBOM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. FROM the fact of so many " Northern C'rs " being now, and having lately been, in the metropolis, certain north ern affairs have been brought forward with more than usual prominence, which must be our excuse for again referring today to certain phases of life on the Gascoyne-this time on the Upper Gascoyne. Wo republish else- where a letter recently addressed by Mr. ROBERT D. O'GBADY to the Vic- torian Express, in which he speaks of the serious danger to the settlers in the neighbourhood of Mount Clere lrom the depredations of the natives, who have been thieving, burning stores, spearing cattle, driving away sheep, and threatening the lives of the whites. This particular mob of blacks hails, we understand, from the Kennedy Range, and are led by a native who has served his time at Rottnest, can speak English well, and has sufficient intelligence and know- ledge of civilization to cause him late- ly, before burning down a store, care- full...

The numerical strength of the Division ÍB 42,being an increase of one dnring the quarter, and the sick pay was two weeks for the same term, lt was resolved -that the Secretary's salary be increased to ¿Bl per quarter.

When do the Government intend to asßist us P If they don't shortly take steps, and forcible ones to put down the natives it will be impossible to live in the district unless tho settlers, as an alternative, are allowed to protect themselves and their property. A short time ago the natives on Mr. G. Smith's station bnrut his store (not a hut) to the ground after first re- moving everything of any value (I won't sliock the nerves of the Southern popula- tion by calling it stealing) and have killed over forty iiead of cattle, thirteen of the latter having been found dead on the camp. Not long ago one of Mr. Smith's men was attacked by the blacks and nar- rowly escaped with his life. The natives have now the upper hand and the whi...

SWAN RIVER MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

SWAN BIVEti MEUtfAMOS' INSTITUTE. -v-: THE annual report of of the Committee of a Swan River Mechanic's Institute which we publish this worniug, shows a j very satisfactory state of affairs. This I institution really supplies the place of a public library and is moreover worked on much cheaper Hues. It is a pity how- ever, that it has not yet taken a broader scope. Instead of being merely a library, a mechanic's institute should be an edu- cational centre. Within its walls popular lectures ou science, art and history should be delivered and evening classes for sub- jects at any rate that bear directly on ; our lives should be held. In the even- ings, all our young men eau do is to stroll about the streets, or sit in the house and read. How much better would it be if opportunities were giveu them to master subjects that would help them on in their way in life. England at the present day has in every city, town and village many thousands of youths and men, many of them well up in year...

THE MISSION IN THE GASCOYNE. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

ÍTHE MISSION IN THE GAS-] \ COYNE. j FBOM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN ) j WB have fairly done with Mr. GRIBBLE arid hu so-called Gascoyne Mission, and warn the authorities of the Anglican Church that they can expect no support of any kiud from us in keeping that person in the dis- trict. In fact wc should strongly advise the BISHOP to get him out of it as quickly as he possible eau and to seud up such a clergyman as the settlers desire to have amongst them -«ne whom they eau esteem and look up to. We respected the BISHOP'S evident desire to do what be could for the benefit of the natives, we were ready to be- lieve that Mr. GEIBBLE was an ear- nest, well-intentioned person, though we feared from the first he was scar eely the man to take up the work he was about to enter- upon in a mode- rate spirit and with kindly taut. Still, as it was decided Mr. GRIBBLE ' should go, we said all we could to prepare the settlers to receive him favourably. Even after his astound- ing indiscretion in coming...

Krakatoa Again. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

Krakatoa Again. The most authoritative statement, says the Leader, respecting the historical eruption of Krakatoa is undoubtedly the work which has been published' under the auspices of tho Dutch Indian Government. Verbeck, the author, has had every facility afforded him of obtaining accurate information, and bis qualifications for the task may be taken for granted as indisputable. For facts which I were ascertainable by actual inspection and research his record may be regarded as ac- curate, but it does not follow that all his inferences on matters which lie^beyond the reach of observation should be accepted as incontestable. He starts with the proposi- tion that Krakatoa lies on the point of inter- section of three fissures or cracks in tho earth's crust, and from this position is natur- ally exposed to volcanic disturbances. Tl ore was an earthquake in September, 1880. v..ich damaged a neighbouring lighthouse. und it iè supposed that this effected the Sunda fissure and facilitate...

SPORTING GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

¡ SFOKTINtt GOSSIP. [BY VINDEX.] ..... v _i »> _ *J " After a stor-m comes a cal-ni sam the old woman, when her good man fell senseless to the floor under the rolling pin. The experience of the old woman is pretty much what ours is at the present ' time in sport. But the calm is not j likely to last long. Soon we shall be ¡ hearing of the stewards having made arrangements for a race meeting m March or April, and we shall be looking forward to the programme. The success of the meeting will, of course, mainly depend upon the character of the programme that is provided. I do not suppose, how- ever, that they will be able to do much more than provide one good race for the meeting-say a prize worth £50 for a handicap. This should, however, obtain a very good entry, considering that there will be a number of horses in train- ing for the York meeting which will fol- low. I have no doubt that some owners will use the Perth meeting for the pur- pose of taking the measure of their own hors...

THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. VICTORIA V. NEW SOUTH WALES. [FROM THE ADELAIDE OBSERVER] Melbourne, December 27. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET j MATCH. ! V "VICTORIA V. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Faon THE ADELAIDE OBBERVEB] Melbourne, December 27. The thirty-fifth intercolonial match between Victoria and New Soath Wales was commenced on the Melbourne Ground on Saturday. At starting the attendance was barely up to that of some past matches, but it swelled to satisfactory proportions in the afternoon. The wicket was one of those too perfect patches of tnrf that have become an almost monotonous accompaniment of matches played on the Melbourne Ground, which make best bowling simple and batting correspondingly easy. The recent rains had deadened the turf just sufficiently to make it a bit slow and give the batsman a sight of the ball without in any way assisting tho * bowlers. Garrett was elected captain of the ^Sydney team a couple of days before the . match, and the Victorians on meeting chose Blackham as leader. The Sydney captain lost the toss, and the difference in merit generally supposed to exist between...

OUR BUNBURY LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

OUR BUNBURY LETTER. The inhabitants of the town and a groat many of tho inhabitants of the district who visited Bunbury cu T?ew Years day are certainly beholden to the committee who arranged the regatta on that day for a very pleasant gatbei injr. The weather on the dates thnt iwica formerly have been fixed for holding a regatta waa any- thing but favorable for such a contest and in a great measure militated against the success of tho meetings on each occasion, but on Friday last it was all that could be desired and this went far to making the affair a success. Very great interest was taken in the events by- tho townspeor pie and others, who subocribed liberally, and this enabled the committee to offer hv«en^ boats from Fremantle and the Vasse to compete. The committee after two at- tempts on former occasions to hold the regatta in the river where space is very limited, this year decided, very properly, for the whole of the proceedings to take place in the bay and thia besides allow...

CHAPTER VI. "EL TREMBLOR.   Hugh Rosslyn found himself on his feet, by no voluntary movement ; and,   after the pause of an instant to steady himself, he looked eagerly around. The horrible heave of the floor had ceased almost as soon as it was felt, but the movement, the sudden bang- ing of some doors at the back of the theatre, and the swaying and flicker- ing of the lights, had alarmed the audience even before Pepito's cry, and, in a moment, the place was given over to panic The occasion for using the facilities for egress had come, but the people in their fear seemed to for- get them, while they endangered themselves by their unrestrained ter- ror. A general rush was made from the pit, the boxes, the gallery, by masses of bewildered people, forgetful of everything else under the overmas- tering impulse of self-preservation. The women in the boxes strove franti- cally to get out into the lobbies, which they could have done with ease and safety, had they ...

The foundation stone of the new pre- mises of the West Australian Bank, at present in course of construction in St. George's Terrace was laid shortly after midday yesterday by the manager, Mr. Francis Lochee. There was a large com- pany present including Sir Luke Leake, Mr. Justice Stone, the Mayor (Mr. Shen- ton) the Dean of Perth, Mr. Loton, Mr. Padbury, the Sheriff (Mr. Roe), Mr. C.
