Our Novel. A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARTS. "A stera chase is a long chase." THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER V. THE TEATRO REAL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 16 January 1886

A STERN CHASE. -?- ! A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. " A stern chase is a long chase." THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER V. THE TEATRO REAL. " A large house with a high wall, and great gate with a wicket in it ; is it not ? "Yes; do you know anyone there?" " I do not ; but I chanced to see   you going in at the gate yesterday. You had an attendant with you." " My nurse, Teresita." The confusion that was not all pain grew with evory word she spoke, and she could not be unconscious that it   was shared by him. She had a half intoxicating consciousness that it did not matter what they said to each other, that she could understand him without speech, and he her. " I saw her afterwards in the street, and asked her the name of the building. Your friend in the convent is not English, I suppose ? " "Yes, she is. I do not know her name in the world, in religion it is Sister Santa Gertrudis. She taught me English and other things, and she is my best friend." "Have...

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN HARVEST. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

TSE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN 1 i j HARVEST. I The following appears in Mr. Frederick Wright's fortnightly report in the Register of December 28 : Harvesting is now general throughout the country, and in the Northern Áreas is now nearly completed, but the result is even more disappointing than was anticipated. In many instances the crop is not worth reaping, and in several of our best hundreds the yield is barely 2 bushels to the acre. The unusual dryness of the last month at the time when moisture was so much needed to fill out the ear has been fatal, and the heads have ripened light and empty. The general impression now is that the average will not exceed 3 bushels per acre through- out the colony, but as the vote for the col- lection of the agricultural statistics has been struck off the Estimates we shall have to rely for information on this point on the figures which are supplied annually by the Register journal, and which hitherto have proved closely accurate. ! Assuming that the estim...

THE FOREST DEVIL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

THE FOREST DEVIL. f* A. correspondent writes to the Queens ! lander :-" Do you know anything about the efficacy of the machine known as the forest devil for uprooting trees? 1 have heard conflicting accounts, some asserting that the breakage of chains more than amounts to cost of grubbing; others, that with judgement in using i+>, it is a great suc- cess. I hear also that by the use of steel wire rope the breakage is very small. Will you tell me all about them ? Also the cost. £ will if your report ie favourable order one for use this wet season, for I have to do much work clearing." The machine called the forest devil is an efficient tool if in the hands of a practical intelligent nan. In order to be successful with it several circumstances are necessary. ? 1. The ground must be wet or loose. 2. The chain must be attached very high up in the tree-every foot in height adds four-fold to the leverage. 3. The lever plate must be 12ft, long. 4. The hooks on the rods must be -strong, ...

DISAPPEARANCE OF AN ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

South of the island *, Suderoe, one of the Faroe group, a mighty cliff rose sheer out of the sea to a height of v" from 80ft. to 100ft. Looked at sidewise from a distance at sea, it resembled a great «hip in fuli sail ; but seen from Suderoe, it pre- "' sented the appearance of a monk, whence it .-; received from the Faroese the name of Mun« ' ken. Monk was not merely a picturesque object, it was also a valuable land-mark for sailors, warning them against a dangerous whirlpool which swept around its base. But it is now only a thing of the paste Last year ' a portion of the olin* fell down, and this year Á all that remained was broken off just below the waterline, leaving in its place a danger« ous reef, which it covered even at low water.

BRITISH HEROISM. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

BRITISH HEROISM. A passenger by the Netherlands steamer Zeeland has furnished a Padang newspaper with the following' striking account of the death of a British officer when trying to resoné a drowning sailor, on her passage out :-After the Zeeland, of the Rotterdam Lloyd Comp any, on her voyage from that port to Padang, j had passed Socotra, the cry " Man overboard" was suddenly raised. It soon turned out to be well founded. A sailor, Verbeekbyname, when pulling a new awning across on the saloon deck, had the ill luok to let go a rope and to fall overin to the sea. When it is borne in mind that tho Zeeland, with sails set and nnder a stiff breeze, was running at the rate of ten miles an hour, through a rough sea, it is easy to understand that there was very little chance of resouing the poor fellow. But the energetic commander forthwith dideverything called for under such circumstances and in his power to do. A lifebuoy was thrown overboard to him, the helm was shifted, the engine s...

LOKDON, January 15. Notwithstanding the reluctance of the Liberal leaders to adopt Mr. Glad« «tone's views on the Irish question, ! the ex.Premier is convinced of the j expediency of a local Parliament, and definitely declares that the concession is essential to the maintenance of order in Ireland. Be deprecates the Min- isterial proposal to abolish the Lord«. Lieutenancy as only a half-measure. The Government have chosen Bishop Moorhouse, of Melbourne, to succeed Dr. Fraser in the Bishopric of Man» chester. The offer has been accepted. The Conservative opposition to the admission of Mr. Bradlaugh to the CoinmonB has collapsed. Probably the matter will now be allowed to rest. Mr. Froude in a recently published work on Australia, entitled Oceania, suggests cortain reforms as advisable, and expresses a high opinion of Aus- tralian resources. Anderson, Manager of the Cable Company, is unable to expedite the proposed arrangements for the reduc- tion of preBs messages. The German Landtag...

THE DEATH of MR.VANDERBIL[?]. [From the Times.] NEW YORK, Dec. 9. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

THEDEATHofMR.VANDERBttt [From the Ktnes.] NEW TOBK, Dec. 9. Mt. Vanderbilt's death has created a pro- found impression. He died in his study, while conversing with Mr. Garrett, Presi- dent of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, who had visited New York on the railway trunk line business. They held a long and animated conversation for more than an hour about the latter's line to New York, with the proposed Staten Island terminals. Mr. Gar- rett says that he sat on a sofa, facing Mr. Vanderbilt who was in an armchair, leaning forward, mnoh interested in the conversa- tion. The visitor says that he suddenly noticed a slight indistinctness in Mr. Van- derbilt's voice, which quickly turned to in- coherent sounds, and without warning the deceased pitched forward, falling helpless to the floor, upon his face. Mr. Garrett sprang up, with a cry of alarm, caught him, and raised him to a chair. Seizing a pillow, he placed it under Mr, Van- derbilt's head, and then summoned the house* hold. Messen...

BRIDGETOWN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

BRIDGE!OWN NOTES. We are busy with our harvest, which, taking the average, promises to be rather light. As I said in one of my last notes, unless the crop is well put in we eiiuuot expect a good return. The district has been rather quiet since the show, and Christmas and the new year were very dull indeed. We had rather hot weather just then, but are now haring a spell of cooler and more agreeable temperature for har- vesting. After calmly thinking over our show, W8 must all allow it was a success, and if those who held back this season, will only give their support next year, we filial! make a still more successful exhibi- tion. It is a pity some of the committee did not support the Secretary on show day a little better, instead of trying io bring discredit on the managements Everyone must acknowledge that the Secretary did his best to make things, work smoothly, and with a little more practice will make the Blackwood Society - a credit to the South.

INFERIOR QUALITY OF AMERICAN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

INFERIOR QUALITY OF AMERI- CAN WHEAT. While it is au admitted fact that our wheat crop IB this season immensely short in quan- tity from that of last year, it ia not so gener- ally understood, we think, that there is a large additional loss by reason of tho com- parative inferiority in the weight and flour- ing qualities of the grain in a large number of ¿States. In quantity as «ell as quality, probably the States of : West Virgina, Ten- nessee, Kentucky, Kansas, Illinois and j Missouri are. the greater sufferers. In Kansas the result of the harvest is most deplorable, reliable advices reporting the average weight Of the wheat over wide areas as not over 451b. to the measured bushel.
