THE GERALDTON FIRE. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

THE OEEALDTON FIRE. FEOM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN | THU cloud of ill luck whicu some years back began to show its dark side to the inhabitants of Geraldton, seems j painfully disinclined to give that dis trict a glimpse of its silver lining. When rather more than a quarter of a century ago the possibilities of the rich country ali round Champion Bay, mineral, pastoral, and agricultural, were first made known, the patient sirugglers along the Swan River, and to the southward, beheld ia it, many of them, a new Land of Promise. Nor ean it be denied that the develop- ment of that district aided most ma- terialism sustaining and enriching the colony in the time of her deepest gloom and.depression. Of late years, how- ever, Champion Bay has been made somewhat bitterly acquainted with the vicissitudes arid misfortunes of life. Its mines to the northward suddenly .became almost worthless. A long succession of bad seasons attacked the farmer to the south, {ind even where the weather appeared prop...

HINTS ON POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

¡ HINTS ON POULTRY. ' Naturally tee vendors of fowls are not anxious to put off the beat birds on. overy cuatomer. ¡Some one must eat tba -old ones» and to young and needy housekeepers the temptation is great to get the largest amount of meat for the money. Nor are we of opinion that the young housekeeper ia Always wrong. Between the tender spring chicken and the tough old master of the yard there is .every step of fowl life, and there is no need to take one because you refuse the other. Gouffè insists that a really aged fowl is good for nothing, not even for the stock-pot, and that-may be so from the point in view of those for whom he writes'; but in many well-to-do households any fowl is more or less of a delicacy. Cut one in pieces and bake it in à slow oven with a dish of vinegar, and a little, spice, and tbèn serve . it hot with a full flavoured sauce, and see how many people will prefer to eat yesterday's cold mutton, which without it would have constituted the principal part ...

A Thorough Job. I Judge M-, a ?wall-known jurist, liriag near Cinoinnati, waa fond of relating this aneodote :-He once had oooaaion to Bond to the Tillage for a carpenter, and a sturdy young fellow appeared with hil tools. " I want this fenoe mended to keep oattle out. There are some unplaued boards ; us« them. It is out of sight from the house ; ao you need not take time to make it a neat job. I will only pay you a dollar and a half. The judge went to dinner.

FROM KORTI TO KHARTOUM. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

FROM KORTI TO KHARTOUM, Sir Charles Wilson's narrative of the Sou dan campaign has recently been published by Blackwood and Sons, and is a work of the most absorbing interest. From the Times review of it we quote the following passages which will, no donbt, be appreciated by our reade» ; The narrative begins with Sir Charles Wilson's receipt of his instructions from Lord Wolseley and ends with his return to Korti on the 9th of February. The account of the march, with its difficulties, relieved by the excellent temper of the men and Lord Charles Beresford's nautical jokes, ia full of details, but does not occupy much space until, on the 16th of January, the force came into touch with the enemy. The battle of the following day at Abu Klea baa been often described by official and unofficial pens ; but we nuut make room for eome of the principal passages of Sir Charles Wil- son's account of the most hardly contested battle ever fought with a strictly savage enemy 5 "When the skirmishers...

FEDERATION. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

FEDERATION. [FROM THE WEST A.USTBA.LIA.N.] | OUR Fremantle contemporary having announced that it had been placed bj its proprietors under the editorial management of a prominent member of the Legislature-whose connection with the journal in question should, the public considered, be a guarantee that its former habit of reckless mis- representation would be abandoned, and that facts would no longer be distorted to suit political proclivities some surprise has been expressed that ! the change anticipated in this direc- tion has not hitherto been effected. It seems onlj fair, in the circum- stances, to suggest, what we believe to be the eaBe, that the new editorial ¡ arrangements aie not quite complete, j and that the direction of our contem- j porary's policy bas riot yet, or had not very recently, changed bands. One of the latest of the instances of misrepre- sentation with which we are all so fa- miliar, was with reference to the Pede ral Council now in session at Hobart. For some r...

MEN AND MANNERS IN CONSTANTINOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

1 MEN ANJO MANNERS IN j CONSTANTINOPLE. -, His Majesty the Sultan of the Otto- man Empire is a most high and puissant monarch. His will is law, and his nod is death.

A Substitute for Burial. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

A Substitute for Burial. Should tho invention of a certain chemist at Brest, named Kergovatz, prove practicable, the present burial cus- toms with all their trappings and habili- ments of woe, their processions, inter- ments, and even gravestones, will to most people be things of the past. According to the home papers the antiseptic system of M. Kergovatz is much simpler and less expensive than the old process of em- balming. It is nothing more than a new galvanoplastie application. The remains i are coated with some conducting sub- stance such aa plumbago, and are placed in a nitrate of silver bath, which, under the influence of sunlight, leaves a finely divided deposit of metallic silver. The body ia next placed in a bath of sulphate of copper, and. connected for electrolysis with several cells of a battery of constant current. The result is that the body is encased in a skin of copper which pre- vents further change or chemical action. If desired it may be further plated with gol...

lÂMili lim. LONDON, Jan. 28.' Mr. Jesse Collings' amendment was carried by 329 against 250, the Lib- eral vote being split. Mr. Gladstone spoke in favour of the amendment. Lord Hartington, Mr. Goschen, Sir "James Lubbock, and Mr. Courtney Toted with the Government. Tho Victorian lean is quoted at a premium of 2h per cent. Lord Salisbury has placed his re- signation in tho hands of the Queen, who has accepted it. Mr. Gladstone is negotiating with the leaders of his party and with some of the members of his last Cabinet with the view of constructing an Administration. XbrJ Hartington has been invited to accept a seat in it, but is unlikely to do so, and his example will probably be followed by other moderate Lib- érais. It is stated that Hr- Henniker Heaton, Conservative member for Canterbury, will receive the honour of Knighthood.

It is an especially bad practice to grow veget- able crops, amongst them when in full bearing, tn the first three or four years after planting, during which time the young trees are not allowed to bear, heavily manured vegetable crops may be grown between the trees without doing much injury, but the plants must be kept at least five feet away from the trees, the space- round the trees being kept per- fectly clean of weeds and mulched with coarse litter and manure.

The QUEEN'S speech had de I dared the firm resolution of the I Ministry to maintain the existing parliamentary connectiou between Great Britain and Ireland, and to oppose any attempt to destroy it, while, at the ssme time, it probably fore- shadowed the extension to the sister isle of the same system of local self government as it was proposed to establish in England and Scotland, with, we may also ie ter, a promise of the abolition of Castle rule and the introduction of a more popular form of administration.

A ROYAL IMPOSTER. 11 -1 1 w THE XIXènie Siècle gives soaie curious particulars of au adventurer, who lately died iu Loudon, styling himself " Prince Louis Marie César of Bourbon, grandson of Fredinand VII. of Spain." He appear- ed at Paris in 1869 under the name of Comte Blanc, being accompanied by Iiis sister, Patrocinio, the famous stigmatic, and by a Dominican monk, confessor ta Queen Isabella. Tho husband of the Queen treated him as a kinsman, and the Queen herself wrote to him as " Dear nephew." During the siege Blanc, was recognised by a leading Paris photo- grapher as a son-in-law whom he had dis- missed for misconduct. In 1871 he made the acquaintance of a rich English widow, daughter of one of the First Napoleon'» aides-de-camp. She pitied him, sympa- thised with his project of regenerating Spain, and advanced him 300,000t. Blanc thereupon settled at Jurangou, near Pau, ift a splendid villa, built by an aged Legi- timist, who recognised him as his lawful king. Here a small ...

MEDICAL REMINISCENCES. BY GOSDON STABLES, M.D., E.N. HOPE : A TBTJE STOßT OF TRUE LOVE, [FHOM THE HOME CHIMES.] A minute considération or investi- gation of the working of any feeling or Sentiment of the mind, lands the student very speedily in the mid-ocean of psychology. Here he finds himself at a great disadvantage: for he is surrounded by agents which he knows to be all powerful to act, but the motors of which he can neither fathom nor understand. If he dares to assume the role of mentor, he is even worse off, for how can he, being iii the dark himself, show light tc others ? How can he, being blind, lead the blind, or how can he guide others through a laby- rinth, the key to which he does not himself possess ? ' But, granting that the student knows something, has found something out, has struck some little spark, has cleared some tiny spot in the mist, even then ho will experience, great difficulty in explaining to thoso he would teach, the truths which he fancies are patent en...

DECAY OF TSE TEETH. . :-rt> In tue introduction of his ".Katural His- tory of the Human Teeth, explaining their Structure, tJse, Formation, Growth, and Diseases,1' published in Í778, John Hunter indicated a good and clear line of delimita- tion between the provinoe of the medical practitioner" and that of the dentist. It may be worth while ,tb reproduce his opinion for contemporary guidance All the diseases of the teethj which are common to them with the other-parts of the'body, should be put under the management of the physician or surgeon ; but those which are peculiar to the teeth, and their connèctione, belong properly to .the dentist." It follows from this that ? decay of the; teeth is a malady whioh ought I» be regarded assailing within the province of the medical practitioner, and we incline to think. it deserves -more general and closer attention than is commonly be- stowed jupbn, it.
