The Ladies' Column. KITCHEN. STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886
\ßY A HOUSEWIFE.] KITCHEN. STOCK. Ic. a subsequent issae I purpose saying a few words about soup, bat as stock is, or ought to he, the foundation of all soups, it is necessary to consider how stock should be prepared. As a rule, people hare most hazy ideas ot a stock pot. It would he a great saving if every houso mother knew the benefits to be derived from the use of the stock pot, to say nothing of the saving to her purse. To begin with, we must consider how to make common stock, as it is tho foundation, as it were, of the two prin- cipal stock sauces, brown and white. Suppose that you have procured some gravy beef, a knuckle of veal, and some pones from your butcher. Cut your meat up into small pieces, break the bones, put all together into your stock pot with a turnip or two, the same of carrots, leeks, and a little .celery. Adda very little salt, but no other seasoning. In families all the remains of meat and even bones which have been previously cooked may be put into the ßtock...

OPERA TROUPE V. BUNBURY 2ND ELEVEN. A erieket match was played at Banbury between members of the Opera Troupe and the 2nd Eleven of Bunbury CC. The, result waa« victory for the Opérât!© team by forty runs. Th&lt;9 ¡score ¿f Bréwn. (32) for the Opera Troupe is worthy of mention. He went in when four wickets were down for four runs, bat by steady play inspired his com- rade! with confidence. Double figures were obtained, also, by Stephenson and H. Devenish. For the 2nd Eleven F. Caporn did good service with the bat, and was successful with the ball. It is only fair to add that this side played short banded Scores : 2ND ELEVEN. W. Spencer. 4 H.

CRICKET. _ M. C. 0. v. ï ZINGARI. The Zingari Club played their second i match of tbe season on Saturday after- noon, against a picked eleven of the M.C.C., and were severely beaten by the &lt; Metropolitans, who won by an innings : and 46 runs. The Zingari haviug 64 ! runs to get in their second innings to save a one innings defeat, had lost seven 1 wickets for. 18. The last three batsmen, who evidently did not feel equal to the : task of making 46 runs, declining to go in. i Monger and Piper were most effective i in their bowling, Piper taking 6 wickets : for 16 runs, and Monger 7 wickets for 24 i runs, while the wicket-keeping of Staf- i ford was much admired.

FREMANTLE C.C. V. PERTH C.C. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886
FREMANTLE 0.0. V. PERTH CC. A match which had been looked for ward to with much interest was played on Tuesday on the Recreation ground, Perth. The opposing teams were the elevens of the Fremantle CC and of the Perth CC Fine weather prevailed ali day, but at times the glare of the sun was unpleasant to the players. The Freman tie team was not composed of all of the men originally selected, two of the num- ber failing to put in an appearance, and it waa found necessary to utilise the two mergency men. Wickets were pitch- ed shortly after ten o'clotk and the Perth team went first to the bathing crease, sending in Gamson and Hussey. The at- tack was opened by Bateman and Herbert For the first few overs, both batsmen played steadily, Gamson especially taking care to play the balls well donn. Bate- man was bowling with vigour, but not with such effect as he did in the match against the M.C.C Herbert was putting them in straight aud pitching them fairly well, but his attack did not seem t...

Farmers' Clubs. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886
Farmers' Clubs. . To our fellow settlers m the Eastern Colonies, it may seem rather late in the day, and almost a work of supererogation, to direct the attention of our country readers to the usefulness and advantages of Farmers' Clubs. Few things could be made better use of to increase the know- ledge and advance the interests of the farmer than these simple institutions, if established en a sound basis and conduct- . ed in a right spirit. " As iron sharpeneth won,"-our readers know the proverb» What can be more conducive to the diffu- sion of useful information, than a number of practical men meeting together periodi- cally, in unpretentious and business like fashion, each giving his free opinion, and comparing the results of experience ac- / quired in tbe practice of his calling ? Xj». True, we have a number of agricultural ' societies scattered throughout the colony, and many of them are. conducted wini energy and practical intelligence ; but ..' most of them confine their effor...
WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. FRIDAY, February 5, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886
WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT -*. , PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT, j FEIDAT, February 5, 188Ö. A very quiet week is reportad by traders. Auction sales oí stocks have been successful, but they have to some extent injured ordin- ary trade-dealings. The loss of the Mira Flores, from London, within sight of port, will cause a scarcity in several lines of merchondile, and we anticipate an increase in rates in many articles thereby. Beer and spirits are shortheld, and the expected sup- plies of stock by the arrival of the wrecked vessel amounted to a large total. Favourite brands of most liquors will consequently only bo obtainable for some weeks to come at much increased rates. We hear of considerable stringency on the part of the banks, as regards advances. Rates of interest have not altered, but the greatest reluctance is manifested to concede fresh accommodation. So far as we know, thera is nothing in the state of trade in this colony to justify any diminution of confi- dence, and we beli...

SATUEDAT, FEBBUABY 6, 1886. i THE annual returns of the results of the farming and pastoral industries should be shortly in the hands of the COI.ONIA.II SECRETARY, and wc may presently look for some hint as to our progress in these departments As , is well known these returns are col- lected by the various resident and police magistrates of the colony, &lt; through the medium of the police, j some time towards the end bf the . year, and forwarded to th» COLONIAL SECRETARY'S office SB soon after as possible. Owing to thel delay in re- ceiving tho figures sent down from froto thé distant magisterial disiricts J to the north, March generally arrives &lt; before any distinct idea can be formed i of the numbers added to our flocks and herds during tho twelve month, ] or of the reputed yield of crops ] gathered in by the farmers. t From whatever point of view we ¡ j I regard it the existing System can I hardly be said to give complete satis- faction in its working, in thc ...
