CHAPTER VIII. HUGH BOSSLYN'S PROJECT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

CHAPTER VIII. HUGH ROSSLYN'S PROJECT. Before the hour at which, as he cal- culated, Ines would be going to the convent of Las Anonciades, Hugh Rosslyn had carefully reconnoitred that building and its surroundings. The lofty white walls that enclosed it, with its courtyard and garden, were unbroken, save by the great gate already described, on three sides of the extensive square which it formed. The street was a wide one, and the houses opposite bore the prison-like aspect of all houses in tropical countries which have no external bal- conies, but turn as blank an aspect as possible to the sunshine. They were long and low, with dark doors and mere slits for windows on the outer side, and the street had a more or less forsaken look always It was not in a fashionable or in a busy commercial quarter, and Hugh thought it looked like a street in which a gentleman might venture to accost a lady, with- out fearing that a battery of obser- vant eyes was turned on the transac- tion. The quadr...

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

i VICTORIA PLAIN NOTES. UNDER date Jan. 18th our Victoria Plains correspondent write« :-"The weather has changed and for two days has been delightfully cool and pleasant. Beaning is ali over hereabouts and the yield is rather better than we hare had for a few years back. I think the ave?, age in this part of the district maybe put at : wheat, per acre, about 15 bushels ; oats, about o bushels ; barley, about 20 bushels. The yield of hay Taxies consid- erably, but I think one ton per acre will be withjp the mark. About Dandaragan 1 heat lie crops are much heavier - than wo have here, which may be accounted for in two ways ; some of the land is botter than ours, and the rainfall was consider- ably heavier than we had. A young man. named Clune, had his collar bone fractur- - ed by a fall from a horse, at Berkshire Valley last week, and I have been inform- ed that a child about five years of age, the son of a farmer named Byrne, resid- ing near Bindoon, was kicked by a horse last Friday...

HORNED CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

HORNED CATTLE. Only a few years ago hornless cattle were looked upon by farmers and cattlemen in much the same light as that in which a. pacing horse was regarded by horsemen. Neither was considered quite up to the mark, though some of the pul ays were famous butter producers, good forage^anshd extremely hardy, while individual pacerían» some localities improperly termed "raokera"} were to be found capable of throwing duBt iu the eyes of rather pretentious trotters. Subsequent events have brought to the notice- - of the farmers and cattlemen in general the fact that polled cattle were distinct and highly veined breeds though, except in the imagination of most insane theorists, they have failed to demonstrate that anything resembling a distinct breed, or even a well defined family of pacers, ever existed. _ To those who nave been instrumental in bringing into notice th« merits of the Gal- loway, roiled Angus, or Aberdeen and Bed Polk, all interested in the progresa and prosperity of ...

OX WARBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

OX WARBLES. «t» -- The Farmer's Gazette saya:-lt.is of mach/ importance to destroy the greatest possible amount of warble maggots before ell have left the cattle. So long as they are killed and the cattle are not injured by the appli. ontiou used, it is of uo consequence what method is followed. M'Dougali's dip aaa. been found useful. Mr, Ducknam'e recipe of carbolic acid with hog's lard might be expected to answer well (oven without his direct testimony to its effect), as the grease would choke the breathing apparatus of the. maggot and carbolic acid would poison it. We have additional testimony to that - already published from' practical cattle: owners as to mercurial ointment acting thoroughly and rapidly in killing the mag» got, and without injury to the infested - animal. But it is not advisable to drese cattle with mercurial ointment aa & ^^fliinear " Besides the manifest danger of putting large quantities on the skin in any part where tue animal could lick itself, suc...

SUPPLEMENTARY TELEGRAMS. (From oar Eastern Files.) LONDON, Jan. 9. Mr. Henry W. Lacy has been appoint- ed editor of the Daily News. The protocol of a treaty between Great Britain and Spain bas been drawn up and signed by the two Governments, whereby the latter confers on England the same commercial privileges as hod previously been granted to Germany.

THE GERMAN SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

THE GERMAN SUNDAY. V AN extract appeared in a daily con- temporary lately on tho subject of a ravivai of Sunday observance in Northern Germany. This revival has not merely taken place in the headquarters ot German Protestantism. The movement has been even more pronounced in Catholic Austria, where it has already reached the stage of legislation. But the extruct under notice would, without explanation, lead to alto- gether erroneous conclusions. These German pastors, who are seeking to obtain the Sunday rest for their flocks, know nothing of the " Christian Sabbath." In Germany, after eleven o'clock on Sunday morning, the greater part of the shops are (»pened, the peasants flock into town, and much business is transacted and work done. It is this which the pastors wish to put a stop to, and we sincerely trust they may succeed. But from the rigors of a Scotch "Sabbath" these same pastors would turn with positive dismay. In the German country parsonage Sunday isa day of real enjoyment....

ALLEGhD SHOP ROBBERY AT NORTHAM. -« I The quiet little town, of Northam was I on Sunday evening Uirown into a state of ! excitement. At about seven o'clock Mr. i ThrosBell's son and daughter had occasion to go to their father's store. When there [ the youth noticed that a current of air was passing through the shop and took j a caudle into the passage in order io see whether the back door was open. Gu getting close up to the door he noticed a man crouching in the corner with his hands and hat covering his face. He went close up to the man who theu blew out the candle. Upon this young Throssell ran out of the shop aud shouted that there was a man in the store. A few moments later a man made his appearance at the door of the shop and then took to his heels, with several townspeople giving citase. After a run of a quarter of a mile a young mau named Smith found a man in the bed of the river Avon, and with con siderable courage, took him into custody. He gave his name as Robert Belcher ...

DISEASES IN CATTLE. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

DISEASES IN CATTLE. [TO THE EDITOE."! SIR,-Thinking a few remarks and or. servations relative to a somewhat pre valent disease in cattle occurring in tha portion of the Southern Districts extend ing from Wanueroo to beyond Bunbur may not be without interest to you country readers, I will endeavour to givi you some oE my experiences about it This disease, commonly known asjHickete Wobbles, etc., etc., is no doubt a apina complaint affecting chiefly the back an< loins of the animals seized with it, ser ioualy interfering with their locomotion and giving them a rolling, staggering gait. lu several cases the hind quarter) become almost paralysed, and sometime) death ensues simply from the beast get ting down and not being able to ris< again. This frequently occurs at thost seasons, when, through lack of nutrition in bush feed, stock are in a weakened state.

KITCHEN. ROASTING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

KITCHEN. ROASTING. Boasting is, without doubt, the favour tte method, of cooking in all classes of society. If possible, roasting, requires more care, indeed more forethought, than boiling. Joints, game, &c., are frequently improved by keeping, that is, if the weather will permit. A leg of mutton ia not really worth eating if newly killed in cool climates ; and, in the winter, a leg of mutton will keep from ten days to a fortnight, and will then quite compénsate any one for the trouble they mayjiave in seeing to it every day. It requires a practised eye to see exactly how long it Should hang, and catch it just at the right time, so that there may be no fear of its . being tainted, lt requires to be thoroughly dredged with flour before being huttg ip a cool placé. It should be looked to every morning, in order that more flour may be dredged over it if there should appear on it any tendency to turn moist. Then again, in keeping game to roast, great «are is requisite. As to the...

HORSE BREEDING FOR THE INDIAN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

HORSE BREEDING FOR THE INDIAN MARKET. In an article that appeared in tins paper a few days ago we called attention to the neglect in this colony of the business of horse breeding for the Indian market. It I has been with regret that for years past j we hare observed the indifference of Western Australian- capitalists to what I seems to us, and has proved to horse i breeders in the other colonies, a lucrative ! trade. Indeed, since the break-up of the j well-known stud of the Messrs. Brown, no i serious attempt has been made here to secure for this colony a portion at any rate of the many thousands of pounds ex- pended 'annually; by the Military Êemount Agents in ludia. It is, therefore, with 1 pleasure that we are now able to state that one gentleman, at least, has recently determined to establish a stud farm on a large scale with a view to assist in supply- ing the ïndiiu market. This gentleman is Mr. H. Gr, B. Mason, of MulbiaUna, on the Upper Gascoyne. If early associations have ...

LABOUR BOYCOTTING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

LABOUR BOYCOTTING. Lawlessness of an organised Mad says an American letter is just now rife in many other parts of the country. At Galveston, a city of 50,000 people was for nearly a fortnight plunged by a " boy- cott " into something almcst approaching anarchy. The steamship line between New York and that city had trouble with its stevedores. They had been paying five dollars a day, and cut down the rate to four dollars. Thereupon a strike was declared, and the Knights of Labor took up tho quarrel and declared a boycott against the line. The New York owners laughed at the threat, and let the Galves- ton shippers fight it out themselves with the mob. To enforce the boycott, the freight lines leading to the city were paralysed by a strike, and to threats that affairs would be left to mend themselves by starving the strikers into submission, the local organ of the boycottera (the "Executive Board ") replied, " You can- not starve us into Submission. The whole city is stored with groce...

HOW THE SUGAR BANANA WAS INTRODUCED INTO THE SOUTH SEAS. [From the Australasian."] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

HOW THE SUGAR BANANA WAS INTRODUCED INTO THE^SOUTH SEAS. [From the Au»traléïian."j Many years ago (in 183B) the Bey. John Williams, who was then a missionary in the South Seas, as an agent to the London Mis- sionary Society, left Baiatea, one of the Society Group, for England, for the purpose of collecting money io purchase a vessel for : missionary purposes, instead of chartering small craft, as hitherto done hythe society, to visit the various stations in the South Pacific On Mr. Williams'B arrival in England he was selected by the society to travel through England /with another missionary as a depu- tation to address meetings and collect funds on behalf of the London Missionary Society. The great suceesB attending their labours history has already made public, iu the shape of a >ery readable book, entitled ¡South Sea Missionary Enterprises.

WORK TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

WORK TABLE. Painting in oil colors is fast takingjthe place of crewel work. It has its advant- ages as well as it« disadvantages. Paint- ing is undoubtedly less laborious than crewel work, and by its means there is a better chance of adding ali the delicate tinta required iii some flowers. It is, how- ever, much more difficult work and, con- sequently, requires moro care iu manipu- lation. The nil, paints, and brushes are certainly expensive at first, yet experience has taught ute that in the end they are cheaper than crewel silks. To succeed in painting, it is absolutely necessary in the first inslanco to have good material to work upon. Satiu is best. There are a great' .many books published on the subject which would greatly assist any would-be painter. It is not absolutely requisite to have a knowledge of drawing for painting in fancy work, as many nse the crewel transfer patterns; but, of course, it is much better to trace your own designa.
