'/JULY 17th, LN88.'' 11 ailw ay cons true tion, it is aifticipated, will -be carried on with vigour as soon as tho Great matter of Responsible Government is settled, JSrow the question as to the most profitable way of building them arises and the subject is one which requires careful de liberation. Land grant rail ways have their advocates and their opponents. Some say the land is no use as it is and if capitalists can be found wil ling to build and work rail ways and take payment in land it will save the colony incurring the liability. Others object to signing away the landed estate of the country which may be much more val uable some day than the cost of the line, and this would benefit only the investors. Again many favour the guar antee system, by which a com pany or syndicate undertake to construct a line on payment of an annual interest on its cost, with ultimate reversion to the Government. Still further. some of our politician...

OUR CITY LETTER. PERTH, JulY 12th. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 17 July 1888
OUR CITY LETTER. (From Our Correspondent.) Prrtit, July 12th. The unemployed agitation at pres ent being organised in Fremantle is attracting a vast amount of attention owing to the fact that many influen tial residents of the town maintain that there is no distress nor want in the locality and that there is plenty of work for those wishing for employ ment. So far as that is concerned we have had ample proof that the labour market of the colony is in a very stagnant condition, as I have frequeut ly notified from week to week in these columns that work was exceedingly scarce, and many were leaving the colony owing to the depression of trade, and that there were numerous families on the verge of starvation owing to the breadwinner being un able to get work. I have had many opportunities of observing the true state of affairs and I can safely say without exaggeration that the stories detailed by many of the unemployed are perfectly correct. One family I know has been subsisting upon po...

THE ADVANTAGE OF KEEPING A VARIETY OF STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 17 July 1888
THE ADVANTAGE OF KEEP ING A VARIETY OF STOCK. ? ^jv — — — — Tw a recent address before the Ed inburgh University, Professor Wal lace, referring to the advantage gain ed by keeping different kinds of stock on 1 he farm, said : — ' Variety of live stock on a farm, quite as much as a variety of crop ping, is a source of wealth accumula tion in the holding. With variety greater numbers can be kept, and the best use can be made of all food by giving the quality suitable by each description of animals. Further, dif ferent varieties of stock appropriate different proportions of ingredients from the soil, and in this way several varieties do not exhaust it of any one ingredient in particular. For exam ple, the loss to the land sustained by selling milk from a large dairy is greater than that which would re sult from keeping a smaller number of cows, rearing their calves, and feeding them iu maturity. It is taken for granted that the same amount and quality of food is given in each case. The...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 17 July 1888
To the Editor. Sir, — At the Scripture Examination of the Boys' School, Bunbury, Mr. Buchanan was prevented from' being present. Mr. Holida\r however at tended and consented to take the first division ot the school, while I made. myself responsible for the se cond an'd third. I have asked Mr. Holiday ;:to send a separate report of the first division ?; which he examined. In the second division the subjects taken up were the History of the Creation, and tho lives of Noah, Abra ham, Joseph and Moses in the Old Testament. In the New Testament the Life of Christ and a repetiti .it of the 23rd and 4Ntb Psalma ivui the Ten Commandments. On the whole the knowledge of the Old Testament was stronger than that ai: the X\Tew, and the repetition was the strongest point of all. The class of course con tained boys of very various ages, but the difference between the worst boys and the best was even wider than usual. I think myself that the amount suggested in 'the scheme for the year is more than...

COUNTRY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 17 July 1888
COUNTRY NEWS. (From an occasional correspondent.) The following is the experience of a traveller and n description of the country lying between Dardanup and Lake Preston. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Lake Preston, July 4th, 1883. From where I write to you is in- deed at the best dreary and solitary and more particularly at this season of the year as at present it is for ever raining with occasional inter- mission. There is no human being nearer than 14 miles distant where one other solitary bachelor resides, who at present is my next door neigh- bour, and who, a hundred chances to one, is never at home when any- body calls that way. Here with all the solitariness and dreariness of my &nbsp; present situation the locality and the surroundings has even more attract- ions for my mind and imagination than more crowded haunts, or popu- lous places, and indeed if the old prov- erb be true that single or solitary life is symbolical blessedness, this is really one of...
VASSE NOTES. July 9th. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 24 July 1888
VASSE NOTES. (Fbom Oub Corbespondent.) July 9th. - The past week has been a repetition of the last five warm sunny days, weather iu which one can fancy they can see things grow. The season i thus far has been all that could be I desired and if nothing comes in the I shape of severe frosts crops ought to I be good. However there is yet plenty I of time for severe frost/ , weather, I but it is to be hoped it may keep off. Tenders for the construction of the Trap Bridge have not yet been ac cepted. Intending contractors came from Bunbury to Vasae to examine plans and several tenders were re ceived, but plans and specifications were sent down only for covering the old structure, so the Roads Board had again to write to the Government pointing out the noce. sity of a new bridge throughout. Mr. Poole was sent down by the Works Department to further report on the bridge, and up to the present the matter stands in abeyance. There have been re ports sufficient ou the bridge in all conscience...
