A JOURNALISTIC PARADISE. [Mr. Bradbury, manager of London Punch, passed through Fremantle recently and chatted concerning the great publication (whoop!) he controls.

A JOURNALISTIC PARADISE BY DRYBLOWER. &nbsp; [Mr. Bradbury, manager of London Punch, passed through Fremantle recently and chatted concerning the great publication (whoop!) he controls. "Western Australia," &nbsp; observed the distinguished visitor, "should produce good writers and should be a jour- nalistic Paradise, the depressing fogs, such as they have in England, being entirely absent from this sunny State."] Stay, most distinguished stranger, stay, Upon your globe-encircling trot ; Your pilgrimage a while delay &nbsp; Upon this sandy, sinful spot. For years we've longed to see a man Connected with the famous Punch Upon whose title-page we scan The puppet with the hideous hunch. From childhood we have ached to see— To see, and p'r'aps to meet and know— A gardener of that tottering tree Whereon the comic chestnuts grow ; And now, though long we had to wait, We're privileged to feast our eyes On him who calls this Groper State A Journalistic Paradise. A wo...
A POLITICAL ARTEMUS WARD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
A POLITICAL ARTEMUS WARD. (See Cartoon on first page of Supplement.) Ladies and gentlemen, I am the man Who tugs at the strings of the figgers," Who promise whatever the people may &nbsp; need, &nbsp; From the man with the harrow, the &nbsp; plough and the seed To the gold-seeking, gullible diggers. The Lion of Northam is here on the end— For Lands Throssell's reckoned the right &nbsp; man, While the doll with the hairless, cadaver- &nbsp; ons face No doubt in a moment you'll easily place As my tame, Ministerial "Nightman." &nbsp; Perjured Piesse, on my left, is a picture of pride, Though his record's undoubtedly tar- nished ; &nbsp; While Wilson, who's not on the stage of the West, Is taking a long, unavoidable rest For repairs and a new coat of varnish. &nbsp; George Leake's in the box, where I hope he'll remain, With a gag on his garrulous organs; And I trust that my readers will let their friends know Of the highly ...
AN EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
AN EXPLANATION. &nbsp; A fact worth of notice among the firms and individuals interested in horses and cattle is the increasing demand which exists for "Kondo." This reliable food is a curative &nbsp; for many of the ailments peculiar to horses &nbsp; and cattle. Proof of the worth of this pre- paration may be obtained by referring to the &nbsp; following well-known Fremantle firms and &nbsp; individuals, who are but a few of the many &nbsp; &nbsp; using "Kondo," but whose names are men- tioned owing to the fact of being publicly &nbsp; &nbsp; known:—The Diamond Express Co., the Frank Cadd Carrying Co.; P.T. Hevron, Customs cartage contractor; James Back, &nbsp; Customs and general agent ; Alex. Ahearn, &nbsp; Customs boat and rail carrier. And "there are others." &nbsp;
SEND IT IN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
SEND IT IN &nbsp; THE SUNDAY TIMES wants good original matter from any source. If any of our readers know a good story with local color- ing, a humorous ancedote with ditto, a bit of special news not snapped up by some other paper, any interesting or amusing bit of personal or local gossip, send in into the SUNDAY TIMES. The SUNDAY TIMES will take it. The SUNDAY TIMES will pay for it. We shall even take poetry—provided it is poetry, or even blank verse, and not merely that are only of interest to one person, or even to two persons. We want matter that can be understood and read with interest in any part of the State or Commonwealth. Send in the matter and name reasonable terms. If it is any good and worth the price, we will publish it and pay for it. All we shall demand is that it shall be fire-new and widely interesting. We are requested to draw attention to Mrs. May Vivienne Buckey's work, an advertisement concerning which appears in another column. The book is entitled "T...
NANSON'S NOSTRUMS PATCHWORK POLICY PALAVER. MEXICAN MORGANS AND PERJURED PIESSE. THE QUERULOUS QUEEN'S HALL QUIDNUNC. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
NANSON'S NOSTRUMS &nbsp; PATCHWORK POLICY PALAVER. MEXICAN MORGAN AND PERJURED PEISSE. --- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE QUERULOUS QUEEN'S HALL QUIDNUNC. When a new bubble is formed it seems rash to prick it before we see how big it &nbsp; will swell and how high it will rise. But the &nbsp; Queen's Hall bubble from Nanson's policy &nbsp; speech seems so transparent that to touch it &nbsp; at all, is likely to cause it to burst. There &nbsp; &nbsp; is only one way to preserve it, and that is to stand off at a very respectable distance and admire it as placidly as the Caribs adored their idols. That, however, is not the duty of the honorable citizen. As Cato &nbsp; the younger long ago said (and it is as true to-day as it was on the day he said it, and would to Heaven the Western Australians would memorise his saying and act upon it &nbsp; &n...
PUBLIC NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
REFERRING to an advertisement ap- &nbsp; &nbsp; pearing in the local papers as to the &nbsp; sale of the chemist's business known as the City Pharmacy by Mr. George Edward Arm- strong and his removal to Fremantle, several &nbsp; of the constituents of the West Australian Apothecaries Company, Limited, appear to &nbsp; have confounded the Mr George Edward Armstrong above referred to with Mr H.C. &nbsp; Armstrong, Managing Director of this com- &nbsp; pany. The directors of the Apothecaries &nbsp; Company desire, therefore, to inform its customers and the public generally, that Mr. H. C. ARMSTRONG CONTINUES, as for- merly, the CONDUCT of its BUSINESS, and is NOT IDENTICAL with Mr George Edward Armstrong, late of the City Phsr macy. Medical Hall, 446 Hay-street, Perth. May 30, 1802. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
PARLIAMENTARY DRAUGHTSMAN. THE SELECTION OF SAYER. A GOOD APPOINTMENT. But A Bad Precedent. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
PARLIAMENTARY DRAFTSMAN. THE SELECTIONS OF SAYER A GOOD APPOINTMENT. But a Bad Precedent. As a politician Mr. W. F. Sayer was a moderate failure. He was out of his ele- ment. As Parliamentary draughtsman he will, probably, give unmixed satisfaction and do the State good service, because he is an able lawyer, careful, painstaking, and industrious, and his capacity for draughting Acts of Parliament is manifested by bis compilation of the Criminal Code, which became law last session. Therefore, from the point of view that a highly capable man has been appointed to an important and responsible position, the State may be con- gratulated. There is, however, an aspect of the affair which outrages the public sense of decency and establishes a vicious and de- moralising precedent, because it seems that in the bestowal of a highly lucrative position under the Crown—one of the plums of the Civil Service—a prominent member of the Opposition has been removed from Parlia- ment under circumstances...
SHIPS OF THE SHARPERS. BOVERIC BUNGLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
SHIPS OF THE SHARPERS. BOVERIC BUNGLES. In our issue of May 18 we devoted an &nbsp; article to the reprehension of Howard &nbsp; &nbsp; Smith and Co. for their reckless disregard of human life in delaying the search for &nbsp; the Boveric. Since then we have made &nbsp; further inquiries, and the results have not only justified the publication of the article, "Ships of the Sharpers," but they warrant us in giving further information. Before &nbsp; the Boveric left the East she had on board a spare shaft and an extra propeller. Indeed &nbsp; these were necessary to comply with the instructions of the Admiralty. But when far out on the Indian Ocean, when the shaft of the Boveric broke, where were the &nbsp; extra shaft and propeller? 'They were not to be found on board. They had simply &nbsp; been removed from the steamer before leav- ing port to make room for extra horses ! To profit by cargo, the company had del...
For the Farmers. ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
For the Farmers. -- ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. &nbsp; &nbsp; "A.B.C., Northam.—An excellent sheep and cattle proof fence can be constructed by using five plain wires with a barbed wire on top. The bottom wire should be 5in. from the ground, the second wire 8in. higher than the bottom wire, the third wire 5in. higher than the second, and the fourth wire 5in. higher than the third, and the fifth wire 8in. higher than the fourth. The barbed wire on the top may be 8in. or 10in. higher than the plain wire. In a fence of this description the ordinary posts are 14½ yards apart, with three ordinary droppers between. It is usual to have straining posts 100 yards apart. "W.H.H." (Moora).—To protect galvanised wire netting, &c, against rust, treat as follows :—Provide for a mixture in the following proportions—Four parts coal tar, two parts turps or kerosene, one part Portland cement. Remove the top from a 200-gal. tank and sink it in the ground to half its depth, makin...
THE STAR FOOD BOILER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
THE STAR FOOD BOILER. The accompanying illustration shows the star food boiler, which is manufactured by an American firm. The furnace (or fire box) and fire flue under the water-tank, are heavy cast iron 2ft. in width and 5ft. long. One fire of soft coal or of wood, once renewed, is sufficient to cook a boiler of wheat or anything desired to be cooked. The fire flue extends from the fire box the full length and width of the boiler, and is 4in. deep, in the centre of which is a partition which carries the heat under one-half of the bottom of the boiler from fire box to rear end of same, then back toward the fire box on opposite side to where the draught enters the smokestack, which is common 7in. stovepipe. Thus we get the full benefit of the heat Before ita force is exhausted. The boiler is made of heavy galvanised steel, and has a tight-fitting cover of the same material hinged to one side of boiler. It is 5ft. &nbsp; long, 2ft wide, and 20in. in height, with angle steel a...
POULTRY HOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
POULTRY NOTES. Sunflower seed improves the gloss of the &nbsp; plumage. Introduce new blood among the poultry once a year. Give lime for growth of bone and for egg- shell material. A little cayenne pepper in the food often stimulates laying. The usual causes of roup are cold, damp ness and exposure. A laying hen should have her food at &nbsp; regular intervals. Maize is a fattening food, but should nearly always be fed the last thing before the hens go to roost. The cost of pure-bred fowls to commence with will be but little, and they will prove &nbsp; more profitable than the common or cross- &nbsp; bred kinds. Among any of the pure breeds there will be some extra good ones, and these will bring twice or three times as much as common stock. Beginners should &nbsp; never buy the hens from any and all sources. &nbsp; Take a pound of vaseline and to it add a teaspoonful each of spirits of turpentine, kerosene, crude petroleum, oil of tar...

RURAL TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
RURAL TOPICS. Welcome change. Farmers can now proceed with ploughing and sowing operations. Land will pulverise well after such a copious downpour. A day in this season is worth a week in the summer to the farmers. Every hour should be utilised in the field, if for tillage. Pasture should spring a little prior to the winter frosts setting in. The land in the Harvey drainage area is &nbsp; of the right sort for mixed farming. &nbsp; It should be thrown open for selection. &nbsp; Fruit (both stone and pippin) would thrive luxuriantly there. Grubbing and clearing can be camed on &nbsp; &nbsp; now, the land being in a fit condition, for the &nbsp; work. If frosts make their appearance those who contemplate sowing lucerne should hold back till August. The autumn, as was recommended by this Journal, is the best time to sow, not only top-rooted grasses but those of fibrous rooted kinds. By this practice the young plants become established bef...
ORCHARD WORK. HINTS FOR FRUIT GROWERS. No. III. Fruit Tree Stocks. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
ORCHARD WORK. HINTS FOR FRUIT GROWERS. Br J. C. BLACKMORE and S. I. FITCH (New &nbsp; Zealand Experts). No. III. Fruit Tree Stocks. There is no doubt that the stocks upon which trees are worked play an important &nbsp; part in their future health and bearing powers, consequently it is necessary to know the kind of stock best suited to work the various fruits upon as well as their adap- tablity to various classes of soil. The plants used for stocks are generally obtained either from seed, layers, or by root-grafting. A sucker does not answer so well, owing td a tendency to produce suckers, as may be easily noted in orchards the trees of which have been worked on either Mussel plum suckers or Kentish cherry suckers. In the selection of seed for the production of stocks care should be exercised to have seed from suitable robust varieties which have the property of repeating themselves toler- ably true from seed or the seedlings will vary very considerably in vigor of gr...
BREACH OF PROMISE. A SYDNEY CASE. THE PLAINTIFF AN ACTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
BREACH OF PROMISE A SYDNEY CASE. In the Sydney Supreme Court on Tuesday, before Justice Pring, an action was brought by Myrtle Hofer, an actress, against HErbert Beresford Moss, upon a claim for alleged breach of promise. The plaintiff claimed £2,000. Defendant pleaded that he did not agree as alleged; that after &nbsp; the said agreement, and before any &nbsp; breach thereof, it was decided that the agreement should be rescinded ; that after the alleged agreement and before &nbsp; the alleged breach, the defendant dis- covered that the plaintiff was then Unchaste and Immoral, &nbsp; &nbsp; and a person of intemperate and drunken habits, wherefore he refused to marry her, and that before and at the time of the alleged agreement, she was lawfully married to a person who was then living. The case for the plaintiff was that, while she was fol- lowing her profession in Queensland, &nbsp; she »set the defendant, who was a &nbsp; com...
TORY TRICKS TRIUMPHANT. ENERVATED EWING'S LOST ENERGY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
"Tinfiddler" writes from Green- bushes: —Owing to the absurd ad- ministration of the Electoral Act, any person residing at Greenbushes or Donnybrook who is objected to as a &nbsp; voter, îs forced to visit Collie at a loss &nbsp; of at least two days work and heavy hotel expenses. There is absolutely no necessity for this, as there is a &nbsp; warden's court at Greenbushes and two clerks regularly engaged there, and if Mr. Ewing would only bestir himself this could be remedied with one stroke of the pen. Perhaps &nbsp; Ewing's apathy can be accounted for by the fact that he has an energetic agent here in the person of Mr. W. H. Gale, who can easily find out the voters who are attached to the Labor Party, and can therefore least afford &nbsp; to lose time to prove their claims, and can readily be disfranchised. So the Tory Representative neglects his outside constituents to diddle the people of Collie into the belief that he will help them with...
HIBERNIANISMS. A COLLECTION OF GOOD STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
A COLLECTION OF GOOD STORIES. A writer in a recent number of the "Spectator" retails quite a number of interesting and amusing "Hibernian- &nbsp; isms," and from his budget we have extracted the following : My first story, he writes, is one of the late Queen:—On her return from her last visit to Northern Italy, the Bishop of Winchester and the Dean of Windsor were dining with her, when she remarked to the former :--"You remember that before I started for Italy you urged me not to fail to visit the conventual church at Assissi. I &nbsp; bore this in mind, and was greatly im- &nbsp; pressed by all I saw there. I had one droll experience, too. For as I was being conducted through a very chilly corridor by one of the monks, I said to him—"Don't you often feel the draughts very trying, wearing the tonsure as you do? I received my answer, not in Italian, but in these words— ''No, madam; I can't say that I suffer in &nbsp; that way at all. As you must be awa...
THE THIRD CENTURY OF THE DAILY PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
The journalist, "the man who minds other people's business," have some ex- cuse for minding his own to-day. The daily paper has entered on the third century of its career. There has been newspapers before the "Daily Courant" came out on March II, 1702, to record the progress of Marlborough's cam- paign. The "Post Boy" had appeared seven years before, but it had an in- glorious career of three days, and nobody thinks of that unlively infant as the foundation of the daily Press. The "Daily Courant" flourished on its folio page of two columns of news gathered from Paris, Harlem, and Amsterdam until the daily Press was established on a basis which neither kings nor governments could upset, and to-day its offspring, like the mustard seed, covers the earth. Of the fifty thousand newspapers printed regularly throughout the world, be- tween fine and six thousand are dailies, &nbsp; and the circulation of these papers has become probably the most important factor in modern civilisati...
BUSINESS NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 1 June 1902
H. Simper and Sons, fruit merchants and produce brokers, of Fremantle Markets, and Mt. Barker Orchard, South Australia, are at the present time enjoying the brisk tide of prosperity which leads on to fortune. Nu- merous shipments of varied fruits are daily coming forward, and owing to large orders from country dealers considerable push is necessary to satisfactorily fulfil the ever increasing list of clients' demands. The &nbsp; &nbsp; firm are handling considerable quantities of Tasmanian, South Australian and Victorian apples, and as price and quality are right, a continued healthy volume of trade is confi- dentally relied on. Box ottomans are Zimpel's leading line &nbsp; this week, and for value cannot be beaten; &nbsp; also couches in every style and variety. Inspect W. Zimpels stock, Hay-st., Perth.
