HOW A LAWYER NON-SUITED A CREDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 24 July 1888

HOW A LAWYER NON-SUITED ^ A CREDITOR. There was a certain lawyer in Westchester County some time ago — a man well to do in the world, and, what was somewhat surprising in a limb of the law, averse to encouraging litigation. One day a client came to him in a most terrible rage : ' Look here, squire,' said he, 'that ere blasted shoemaker down to Pigeon Cove has gone ami sued me for the money for a pair of boots I owed him ' ' Did the boots suit you ?' ' Oh, yes. Tve got them on now ? — Fust-rate boots.' ' Fair price?' ' Oh, yes.' 'Then you owe him the money honestly ?' ' 'Course.' ' Well, why don't you pay him ?' . ' Why, 'cause the blasted snob went and sued me, and I want to keep him out of the money if 1 kin.' ' It will cost you something.' ' I don't keer a cuas for that. How much money do you want to begin with ?' ' Oh, ten dollars will do.' ' Is that all ? Well, here's an X ; so go ahead,' and the cheat went out, very well satisfied with the beginning. Our lawyer next called on t...

OUR CITY LETTER. PERTH, July 19th. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 24 July 1888

OUR CITY LETTER. (From Our Correspondent.) Perth, July 19th. The weather in our vicinity has been bright and clear for the last week, but in the morning frosts have been sharp. Glowing accounts as to farming come in from all parts of the country and better times are antici pated. Many are the signs of the times that our days of depression are passing away and the advancement of Western Australia taking another Bpurt. Foremost among the causes for con gratulation is the news of the success of Mr. Edward Keane, our popular railway contractor, having been suc cessful in completing negotiations for resuming the work on the Midland Railway. Last Monday Mrs. Keane received a telegram from her husband: — ' Midland fixed— leave thirteenth.' Another message has also been re ceived by the Manager of the Nation al Bank confirming this, the purport of it being that the contract was sign ed on the 5th. It is also reported that Mr. Keane received an offer on behalf of a Melbourne Syndicate, throu...

TELEGRAMS. LONDON, July 20. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 24 July 1888

TELEGRAMS. LONDON, July 20. In the HoBse of Commons to-day a debate took place regarding the libel case of O'Donnell v. the Times, in the course of which Mr. Parneil declared that the letters put in evidence- hy the Attorney- General Sir R. Webster. purporting to be from Parnell to Egan arid Byrne were forgeries. The London Press generally insist that the denial as now made is value less and challenge 1 ;gal disproof. The solicitor who acted for Mr. F. H. O'Donnel, during the late trial, has made a public declaration iu in which he states that every step in the late action was submitted in the first instance to Mr. Parnell for his approval. The police have had orders to seize and confiscate all the copies of the Comte de Paris' public manifesto, which he sent to all the maires of France. In the manifesto the Comte severely condemns the Republic and its doings, and contends that a mon archy is the one desirable form of government. Many Zulu chief and numbers of Boers are taking the f...

POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 24 July 1888

POTATOES. The potato is subject to destruction b/ frost, though it will not be injured by hoar frost if it is not thawed too rapidly. Amateurs sometimes kill their plants through ignorance iu ap plying the well known remedy of sprinkling the plants with water be fore the sun rises. The water must have been exposed in a tub or tank during the previous night, and be cool ed down to a point slightly above the freezing point. If water is drawn from a well or taken from a tap, or even from a spring, it will probably be too warm, and by thawing the plant too rapidly will cause a lesion in all the sap-cells, which will destroy their vitality, and the sun will dry up the stems and leaves within an hour or two. The same thing will probably happen if no water is applied, because the heat of the morning sun is gener all}r sufficient to rapidly thaw the ice spicules within the plant. Potatoes cau be grown in almost any soil and locality m this colony, but the plaut certainly prefers nice loamy ...

The Advertiser, Nihil sine Lahore. JULY 24th, 1888. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 24 July 1888

Ni.hil sine ?? Lahore. JULY 24th, 1888. Horse breeding for exporta tion to India does not receive that attention in these districts that its prospects entitle it to. Though all the Agricultural Societies stive special -nrizes at their annual shows for the best stock for this purpose our settlers do not seem to attach any practical importance to it. Probably this is because the expense of forming a stud sta tion of such dimensions as to ensure remunerative results is very great, because a large a* mount of capital is required and because some years must elapse before any return is ob tained. Now the Lower Black wood District is one of the fin est in Australia for horses. They do much better than cat tle and there are but few set tlers who have probably not the means to carry out breed ing horses to that extent to make it worth their while to devote all their resources to it. But they might combine and form a Stud Company on some what- the same lines as that successful corporation ;kn...

COUNTRY NEWS. MANDURAH, July 13. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 24 July 1888

COUNTRY NEWS. (From an occasional correspondent.) Mandurah, July 13.   The fishing season has been over for some time, and the establishment closed, but the Barragup supply will     shortly arrive. Barragup is the old fishing station of the aborigines, and in the olden time 400 or 500 natives would assemble from all parts, for a general feast, and gorge themselves to repletion. Now not a solitary native puts in an appearance. Mr. John Tuckey, who arrived here from Yilgarn, and brought some fine specimens, left last week to recom mence operations. On the 5th inst. his son, C. Tuckey, started from Fremantle in the Ellen, a five ton boat, when off Woodman's Point, the boat capsized, and he was 17 hours on the keel, but was fortu nately picked up next morning by the steamer Rescue not much worse for the drenching. The season here has been very fav ourable, plenty of rain for the last fortnight, with strong southerly winds, and so far we could not h...
