SOME SUBJECTS TO BE THOUGHT OVER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 August 1888

SOME SUBJECTS TO BE THOUGHT OVER. At one time the scientific chemists of Europe had an idea that, by means of concentration, such a mass of pure nutriment could be collected into a small space (by eli mating every par ticle of matter that was not absolute nutriment), that a man could carry in his knapsack a sufficiency of food to sustain him for a year ; or that a farmer could carry fertiliser enough in the palm of his hand to fertilise a field. Theoretically the idea was cor rect, for in every kind of food, and in all manures (another form of food) there is a great bulk of material that should be called waste or useless mat ter — except that by its actual bulk it enables the digestive organs to pro perly perform their functions. Sjtne highly concentrated foods were pre pared by these chemists, and animals were fed exclusively upon this pure nutritive food, with the extraordinary result that they actually starved to death. Theu the value of the sup posed' waste- material became appa...

A HINT FOR COLONIAL VINE-GROWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 August 1888

A HINT FOR COLONIAL VINE GROWERS. The. London Globe writes : — ' Mr. Oswald Crawfurd, in his Consular re port from Oporto, recommends colon ial vinegrowers in Australia and else where to adopt what he calls the old world system of treating the vine which prevails in Northern Portugal. Here the vines are grown as creepers, and allowed to run to nearly their full natural length, either as tall espaliers or on square trellis work of wood or cane, a man's height or more from the gruund, or else they are trained in the ancient Roman method to poplars and other trees, which are pollarded and pruned of their branches to enable the sun to reach the vine flowers and grape clusters. In colder countries the French and German system of growing the vine as a bush is no doubt to be preferred, but wherever the summer heat is about the same as thai; of Northern Portugal, the Portuguese method is recommended. Several ad vantages are claimed for it — among others, total freedom from the phyl loxera. ...

THE PROPOSED NEW CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 August 1888

THE PROPOSED NEW CABLE. The Australasian says : — The laying of the new cable is not likely to quench the desire of the Pacifiic Telegraph Company to lay down a cable between Australia and America, in order to provide additional communication with Great Britain and Europe. One of the principal contentions for the Pacific scheme is that a duplicate or alternate cable route communication to the old country to be of practical good, should be entirely removed from the existing routes, and that each should be as far as possible removed from the dangers which beset the other, as even where there are duplicate routes, they are, when they lay alongside one an other, exposed, to the same natural causes of danger ; whereas, if one route goes an entirely different way from start to finish, the causes which, endanger one do not, as a rule, affect the other. Captain Rowan, the re presentative of the Pacific Telegraph Company in Australia, recently point ed out that the cable, if laid down as pro...

TAKING THINGS EASY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 August 1888

TAKING THINGS EASY. There is no small art in taking things easy, so long as we must suffer annoyances in this breathing world, saying as little as possible about them, and making no parade of our martyr dom. If making a fuss and rendering every one else about us uncomfortable, in any way abated the ills that flesh and spirits are heir to, there would be some slight excuse for the folly and selfishness ; but since we cannot es cape tribulations of one kind or an other, fretting only aggravates them. Either let us be silent and endure, or take arms against our woes and by contending end them. In general, he who makes no ndo is supposed to have no troubles of his own, or an organiz ation so inferior that it is not jarred out of tune by the rough usage of for tu'ue ; to make the very worst of every trouble, big or little, from the frac ture of a teacup to that of a skull, is considered by many a proof of great sensibility and depth of character ; while he who pursues the other course, w...

OUR CITY LETTER. PERTH, August 2nd. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 August 1888

OUR CITY LETTER. — ? -9^- ? ? (Feom Oub Correspondent.) Perth, August 2nd. Business in the City seems slowly but steadily improving. No doubt the brighter prospects from manj quarters have given a stimulus to trade and greater confidence in the future. Consequently capital is more f relly circulated and new enterprises undertaken which cannot fail to bet ter the condition all things generally. The news from our Eastern Gold fields still continues to be encouraging. Fresh reefs have been discovered and the stone from many of the claims which are now worked undoubtedly contains the precious metal in payable quantities. All accounts from pros pectors and experts tend to confirm the assurance that a payable goldfield exists in our Eastern Districts. The Government however have not yet proclaimed it a goldfield and their tar diness in. this respect is severely com mented on in many quarters. But a, serious lesson was learnt at Kiinber ley, where vast sums of money were spent and very exp...

Correspondence. THE NEW LAND LAWS. A GRIEVANCE. TO THE EDITOR Southern Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 August 1888

C0m8p0n&titt& THE NE-.V LAND LAWS. A Grievance. To the Editor Southern Advertiser. Sir, — Ever since the new land laws came into force the unworkableness of several of the clauses has been felt and perhaps it would not be out of place to take one notable case, not only as an illustration of their use lessness, but also as a warning to in tending purchasers of lands not to make any improvement until after their blocks are surveyed. ^ The 109th Clause of the Act pro vides, 'That applicants for the pur ' chase or conditional purchase of any 'land omprised within a pastoral ' lease may enter into occupation of ' the land applied for so soon as he ' shall have received the approval of ' the Commissioner, but shall forfeit ' the land together with any portion ' of the purchase money already paid, ' if he fails to comply with all the re ' quirements of arbitration as provid ' ed by these regulations' and the 'Commissioner shall notify him ae ' cordingly.'

THE ROADS BOARD. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 August 1888

THE KOADS BOARD. To the Editor. Sib, — In riding along the road to the Capel I cannot think what induced the survej or to lay out the road so far into the Kokalup Plain, taking it about 2 chains from the cleared road, which is partly along the edge of the sand. I think it must have been to favour those parties that are having the drain cut along in the road to drain the swamp. By the bye I think the sooner the memb3rs of the Roads Board put a stop to what I consider their short-sighted policy sanctioned, i. e. to cut ths drain in the road and throw the soft clay over the road to make a complete bog of what is a very passable piece of road, and with the expenditure of a few pounds would be a good one, with the natural soil for a ioundation. Whereas with the soft and loose clay it will cost hundreds of pounds to metal it and if a loaded cart goes off that it. will be worse than the clay in its natural state. I should have thought that the Eoads Board had had enough of that sort of stu...

I have stated, as my conviction is to the real facts of the case, as to the depth of water at the jetty end being brought to the notice of the Pirector of Public Works, he would jiot have opposed the grant for the completion of the work being placed on the estimates at the last session of the council; I may be wrong in my .. opinion, but I am of that opinion still.

AS THE LATE ROSE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 August 1888

AS THE LATE ROSE. As the late rose sees early summer perish, Die ere her deep heart opens to the sun, So some souls still their garnered treasure cherish — Patiently waiting, waiting still for One ! One tender voice, one thrilling touch awaiting — One magic power alone in all the land — At whose enchantment they shall wake, vibrating Like smitten harp-strings to the master's hand. ? Heart that to one heart onty is the dearest, Soul that to one soul only is the nearest ; Faith that to one faith never tails or ralters, Love that loves always — love that never alters ! I This is the love for me ! This is the love for me ! As the late rose sees early roses fading, Fading and falling from the par ent tree, 'Whilst her fresh beauties to the day are spreading, ►Such love, once given, shall ever youthful be. Love lightly won is but a short lived biossom ; Love deep and true Time has no power to slay. [Resting in peace on one beloved bosom — I thine, thou mine, for ever and for aye ! Thy hea...

TELEGRAMS. LONDON, July 31. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 August 1888

TELEGRAMS. LONDON, July 31. The match between the Australians and the Surrey team, as with the match with the Yorkshiremen, had to be abandoned, owing to the heavy rainB. Two atrocious agrarian murders were committed in Ireland on Satur day last. In the first instance a la bourer was working in the fields at a place called Ranturk, in County Cork, when he was shot dead by a masked man who approached him openly. In the second case a farmer was shot dead while returning from Tralee. In each case the assassin escaped. The heavy and continuous rain which has been falling throughout the United Kingdom, for the pas3 week, threatens to destroy the wheat harvest. The navvies* strike in Paris is increasing, and over 8,000 men are now on strike. Scenes of disorder are frequent, and the situation is re garded as critical. PERTH, August 6. A man named Jarvis, who, it will be remembered, escaped with Hughes some time ago, and who was let out of gaol a fortnight since, stole a gun and other artic...

VAiSSE NOTES. (Pbom Our Correspondent.) August 6th. The chief, I may say the one topic of the week has been the resignation of our local member of the Legislature, Mr. George Layman and, who we may Have as his successor.
