Useful Dairy Hints, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 February 1888
Useful Dairy Hints, Canon Bagot, in a recent lecture on dairy farming, threw out some hints well worth remembering. It was not, lie said, the cow which produced the milk alone, bat the food and water which they put into her, for the animal was only the machine which produced the milk and cream. He impressed upon his audience the necessity there was for treating their cows with gentleness, as in case a daiiy maid or anyone else illtreated a cow, then she would not let down her milk, and results would follow. A cow must be milked with quickness, and no time ought to be lost in getting the milk strained into the settling pans- Having spoken of the great necessity there was for cleanliness in order that the milk might produce the greatest quantity of good cream, he said milk ought to be shallow in summer, and deep in winter in the pans. But if they allowed their cream to remain too long on the milk it became Bour, and this effectually stopped the farmer obtaining a good price for his bu...

Bibra, with a party of three others, left Perth to prospect the Yilgarn hills. To-day he returned, bringing with him about 150 lbs. weight of quartz, ail of an auriferous character. Mr. Bibra made a statement to our reporter as follows: **I ieft about two months ago and we had the usual experience on the road. I was not very well either at the fields or on the journey up, my indisposition being caused by the indigestible nature of the food we had to partake of, after being fifteen years on comparatively good food. However I managed to see the time' through, and here I am in tolerable good health. The water to the fields was very bad, and! would not witha mountain ol gold before me, again dxink the water that I have had.to for.the last six weeks. .On arriving at the fields, I found that most of the other prospectors were following up -wh...

Catholic Picnic at Lancelot, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 10 February 1888
CatJioSss Picnic at LaaceSot, The annual Catholic Picnic was held at Lancelot on Wednes day last, February 8. The gathering was a very fair one considering the times, there being fully two hundred people on the ground during the day. The weather was all that Could be desired, and were it not that Dame Fortune had iiot smiled her usual smile, the day itself would have been enough to attract a large crowd. The programme of sports Was a very good one indeed^ and it was a pity that out of the twenty-one nominations for the Sheffield Handicap-for which prices of twelve guineas were provided^only eight accepted This was due to a little mis^ understanding with regard to the handicap given to three men who never intended to run. The mistake made was in the other runners getting afraid, and not knowing the reason why these men were put ahead in the handicapping. However the contest was a very close one especially in the last heat. Messrs E. O'Loghlin and A. Dowd acted as judges; Messrs S. Al...
