TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 November 1879

To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir, ---I think the following remarks upon the right preparation of manure may be useful to many of your readers, especially to amateur gardeners. The manure heap in most gardens is very unscientifically treated. " In preparing the manure heap, nothing must be allowed to run away in the form of fluid, or fly away in the disguise of a smell. So mark out a piece of ground on which the dunghill is to be made, on a good slope if possible, and close by a pond. Cut a gutter all round, and puddle it with clay, so as to make it watertight. Then, at the lowest part, outside the place where the dunghill is to lie, dig a sink-hole eighteen or twenty inches deep : let this be well puddled, and connected with the gutter already spoken of. This being thus prepared, throw down a layer of manuring substances about a foot deep; tread them down well and scatter some "fixer" (see hereafter) over it; finally, water it well. In this manner go on with layer after lay...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 November 1879

TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. Sir,----The other day you published for Mr. Shenton a return showing the value of the Carngham clip of wool. The following, taken from the circular of Mr. E. W. Pitts, Dry Creek, South Australia, may be interesting to the rea- ders of your agricultural column: "The clip of last year, 1878 was sold by Messrs R. Goldsbrough and Co., in Melbourne, in the face of very unfavorable news from home and realised 11d. for the ewes; and 13d. for   the lamb's wool; averaging all round 8lbs 3oz ; over one third of the number shown being lambs, with a corresponding proportion of breeding ewes." When we consider that two thirds of these sheep were lambs and breeding ewes we cannot, I think, deny the excellence of the flocks. Eight pounds three ounces (8lbs 3oz) greasy wool of this class would be worth about 10s. in London. This, it will be observed, is considerably more than the average value of the fleece of Mr. P. Russell's sheep, published in y...

WESTERN A USTRALIAN RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 November 1879

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN RACES.     We are requested to draw the attention of owners and trainers of horses to the fact that nominations for the Metropolitan Han- dicap must be made with the Secretary on or before the 1st December, after which date no nomination can be received. The terms of this race being most liberal --one sovereign only being levied for each horse nominated we hope to see it largely patronised by the racing fraternity. Thc weights to be carried by each horse will be published on the 20th December, and trainers have from that date till the 3rd January to decide whether they will accept and run their horses. If they accept, one sovereign more is payable on each horse ; if they decline, they have merely lost the nomination money. We specially commend this race to the notice of owners of horses that have won nothing on the W. A. Turf Club's course ; as, not only will such horses probably be weighted very lightly but they can also run for the Maid...

THE Best Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, NOV. 25,1879. DEATH OF HIS HONOUR THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 November 1879

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Vigilans et Audax. PERTH, TUESDAY, NOV. 25,1879. DEATH OF HIS HONOUR THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. It is with deep regret that we record the sudden and unexpected death of His Honour the Chief Justice. We feel sure that throughout the length and breadth of the colony the sad news has been received with but one feeling --a feeling of heartfelt sor- row, and a sense of personal loss. So uni- versally was His Honour respected, so high did he stand in public estimation, so great was the esteem and kindly feeling he had won from high and low, from rich and poor, that seldom in our community has the death of a public man called forth so real and grave a sense of sadness and concern. His Honour had been unwell for several days, suffering from an attack of erysipelas in the leg, which did not at first cause his friends any serious alarm. Graver symptoms however set in on Wednesday last, the action of the heart seemed to be impaired, and on Thursday a consultati...

To THE EDITOR. SiR^Permit me to thank you for devoting a space in the WestAustrahantoßubjecta of special interest to your female readers, whose interests have never before been recognised in any way by the editors of newspapers in this colony. I have no doubt that, ahould you induce a few fair correspondents to come forward like " Martha" with useful counsel and advice, the * Ladies Column ' will become one of the most interesting features of your paper. Prompted by a mother's anxiety« although timid to a last degree, I address myself to your readers for a little advice. We have a little son of three years, who is inclined to have con- vulsions or spasms, with seemingly the slight- est cause. It is now a little more than a year since he had the first one, since which he has had four. I want to know the opinion of the" many readers of the * Ladies' Column' whether there is a natural tendency in some children to have convulsions, or is there some underlying cause, such as undue circul...

THINGS WORTH KNOWING. That boiling water will remove tea stains and many fruit stains ; pour the water through the stain, and thus prevent it from spreading over the fabric. That ripe tomatoes will re- move ink and other stains from white cloth;   also from the hands. That a teaspoonful of turpentine boiled with white clothes will aid the whitening process. That boiled starch is much improved by the addition of a little sper- maceti or a little salt, or both, or a little gum arabic dissolved. That beeswax and salt will make flat irons as clean and smooth as glass;   tie a lump of wax in a rag, and keep it for that purpose; when the irons are hot, rub them with the wax rag, then scour with a paper or rag sprinkled with salt.

THE OTHES SIDE OF THE MEDAL. To THB EDITOR or THB WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-A great deal is sought to be made by the advocates of constitutional reform, and by their mouth-piece the Herald, out of the fact that under our psjesent form of Government the members of the Executive are not directly responsible to the "people"; and glorious visions of prosperity are conjured up, with the object of dazzling our astonished gaze, as to the inevitable result of the country being governed by a ministry elected by the people and responsible to the people. I do not know whether any sane member of the community ever derives MB opinions on political qnestions from what is printed in the Herald. If any such confiding person does exist, I think you would do well to warn him against receiving as gospel the doctrines laid down by that paper on this phase of the question of constitutional reform. We need not go far to find proofs of what ministers elected by the people and responsible to the people will do...
