Excessive Heat and How to Moderate it. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

Excessive Heat and How to Moderate it. The protracted spells of sultry weather endured of late most seasonably invite our attention to expedients practised by older and more experienced communities in mitigating such visitations. The ex- hausting Summer, with its powerful sun and enervating " hot wind," constitutes the chief drawback—and it is a formidable one—in our Australian climate. And the drawback is all the more felt because a large proportion of the population are new in the land and assembled from colder climates. It may be as is said, that the annual mortality is, in proportion to num- bers, less considerable than it was formerly, the population as a whole having become more settled and acclimatised. But we believe we are right in saying that the diminution of mortality is more manifest in the other seasons than in summer, when diseases directly induced, or aggra- vated foy exhaustion still swell up the .number of deaths. A main cause of this, undoubtedly, is that the sani...

Our Novel. A STERN CHASE A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MBS. CASHEL-HOEY. "A stern chase is a long chase" THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER X. A WAY OF ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

A STERN CHASE.       A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. "A stern chase is a íong chase"         THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER X. A WAY OF ESCAPE. ""What is it dearest? What has happened ?" asked Hugh, as he met Ines at the appointed time and place. "Something ill, I fear, although it has done me this good."   It needed, indeed, but a glance to assure Hugh that the tidings he had been summoned to hear were evil. The face he had seen in the theatre was hardly more full of fear than that which he looked upon now. Ines did not speak at once ; she seemed to be striving with an emotion too powerful to find words. She had sunmoned Hugh, and now that he had come she   was unequal to the task she had im- posed upon herself. A sleepless night had helped to unnerve her. "Try to recover yourself, my   darling," said Hugh tenderly, kissing her cold little hands wh...

THE CODLIN MOTH IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

TSE CÖDLIN MOTH IN SOUTH ÄUSTRALlA.. The Register, writing on this subject says:-" For some time past fears have been entertained that the great pest to or- chards-codlin moths-existed in some or- chards within a short distance of the city. Enquiries were instituted, and it was ascer tained a day or two ago that the orchard of Mrs. R. G. Thomas, in Marystreet, Unley, was very badly affected, while the fruit trees in Mr. Soammeli's garden, which is situated in Thomasstreet, close to Mrs. Thomas', had also been attacked by the pest. Mr. T. Hardy had also . just made the unpleasant discovery that his garden at Bankeide has been marked out by this enemy of the apple tree. It has been known that the pest ex- isted in the other colonies, but up to the present time South Australia, was considered to be free. Anxious to maintain auch a state of affairs the gardeners and other gen- tleman interested , have repeatedly urged upon the -Government the necessity for stringent legislation on the s...

PERTH POLICE COURT.   {Before the Police Magistrate.) FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5TH, 1886. W. ROWE was charged with using abusive language towards J. A. Halliday, builder, Perth. The complainant said that on Mon- day, shortly after mid-day, when he was on his way to dinner, he met the defendant and three other men. One of them was named Nicholls, and another was the man they called the "sainted Salvationist," Sammy Smith. They "escorted" him-that was, they stopped him-and asked if he could give them work. After a (long " confab," he told them he could not give them work for three weeks or a month. Then they began to " cod" him and use abusive language towards him.

The Wreck of the "Mira Flores." [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 6 February 1886

The Wreck of the "Mira Flores."   A ship which weathers the perils of the long voyage from England to Australia, only to be cast away when in sight of port, is an object which appeals strong- ly to the sympathy of everyone. The end of the long suspense, and the weary journey, the gratification of having ac- hieved another suceess, the desire of setting foot again on land, the hope of renewing our intercourse with friends, staut at which they are all most sensibly- . felt. In default of some kind of inquiry it seems impossible to explain satisfactor-     ily tho disaster whioh befell the Mira Floret. The light at Rottnest is one of the best in these seas, and should be distinctly visible as a rule at the least twenty miles at sea. Overhanging smoke may have obscured it, which one of the numerous bush-fires which are blazing, so fiercely on the island under the scorch- ing heat that prevailed lately may have led the captain to mistake the true po...

WRECK OF THE "MIRA FLORES:' The people at the port of Fremantle   were some what alarmed on Saturday   morning last at hearing that a vessel had been wrecked off Rottnest Island the night before. About 10:15 a.m. it was ascertained from a heliographic message 4hat the Mira Flores, barque 500 tons, Witt master, had struck the Horseshoe reef and knocked ahole in her bottom. By 10:40 a.m. the Myth, Zebra and Ione lighters were on their way to the scene of the disaster, followed by the police boat Mabel, the Will Watch and the Harbor   Master's boat at about ll a.m. These were also followed by the steam launch Cleopatra the Nellie and later on by the Evelyn Mary with Mr. Marmion on board. The wind was off the land when the first lot of boats started and they were considerably ahead by the time the second batch lifted anchor and left with   a light wind from the east which con tinued with occasioned puffs till within five miles of the w...

WHY MY HAIR TURNED WHITE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

WHY MY HALE TURNED WHITE. " Wallace, bow queer it is that your hair should be so white. You are younger than I, and mine has scarce- ly a touch of grey ia it." ' " Ah, old fellow, my hair is grey, but not wttH years. I was thirty-four a week ago. People are always sur- prised when I tell my age, and no wonder, for I look at least sixty. Would you like to hear how I came by my venerable appearance ? Yes ? Well, then, fill your glass, and take a fresh cigar." The last speaker was a handsome, well-built fellow, with bright, kindly eyes and well-cut classical featn res. Anyone who saw him for the first time would be sure to exclaim, " What a wonderfully preserved old gentle- man ! " for his locks were of a snowy whiteness, which, in spits of the evi- dent youthfulness of face and form, impressed one with the idea that he was an old man. He and his com- panion were seated by the fire in a beautifully furnished little smoking room. A table stood between them, with glasses, a decanter, and...

NEW STEAM BICYCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

NEW STEAM BICYCLE. -. . According to the Net» York Turf, Field- ?>. and Farm, a steam bicycle is the latest ; novelty. It is of the star pattern, with a small wheel in front, and attached to the front bar is a vertical brass boiler, heated with gasoline, a'dainty engine mounted on the bar above ; the boiler has a stroke of three inches, with a cylinder of 1 1-I(5th inch diameter. Below the engine is a spherical reservoir holding a quart of water, and above it a cylinder holding as much gasoline. A round belt communicates the power of the engine to a 30-inch wheel attached to the . wheel of tho bicycle. The engine in an ex- hibition recently made 180 revolutions of the li- crank in a minute, and nine of these revolutions turned the large wheel once. A little steam guage showed 601b. pressure a few minutes after the fire had been started, and, leaping into the saddle, the inventor rode swiftly round the rink for 20 minutes. It ie asserted that the engine will run for au hour withou...

SHARKS' BAY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

SHARKS' BAY NOTES. Tim weather Lere is very dry but stock are doing well and are in good condition. On the 4th of January a Malay was lost out of one of Mr. Williams' boats while ou the banks. It is supposed that the staysail knocked him overboard and that he was drowned as he has not been seen or board of since. Pearling operations are rather dull just paying expenses and nothing more. There is one thing that, if not soon remedied, will cause the ruin of the banks, Fully one fourth of the shells landed are too young and ought not to be gathered. If left on the banks they would be good shells in two or thre years. As it is now the bauks will be completely skinned out before long and there will bo nothing left for breeding from. The Chinamen now that they are work- ing for themselves, and finding tliat the chances of robbing the whites are less than when formerly employed by them, have commenced to rob one another. Last Sunday the police had to interfere as there Aras a free fight am...

A GARDEN ON THE SWAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

A GARDEN ON TUE SWAN. [BY OUR SPECIAL REPORTES.] When strangers arrive in Western Aus- tralia, they are generally struck with the sandy character of the soil. The railways run through sand banks, the roads are bordered by sand, the country wherever one looks is sandy. Many of them will, no doubt, say to themselves that they have discovered in its sand the canse of Western Australia's unsuccessful efforts to became a great colony. The European's notions of sand are gained from books of travel and tho enchanting tales of adven- ture in distant lands by Captain Mayne Beid, Captain Marryat and other writers. To say that a country consists of sand is sufficient to throw before his mental vision ' s vast desert, inhabited only by vultures and perhaps a few camel-mounted Arabs making for the nearest oasts. When told that such a city as Perth is built on sand and that the moment the inhabitant reaches the limits of the streets, he plunges ankle deep into it, the European snakes a mental com...

THE PASSAGE OF THE « RIVER CLYDE." THE barque River Clyde, winch arrived at Fremantle on Saturday brought to this colony about 20 immigrants. She left London docks on the 6th November, mak- ing a fair passage in 92 days. She made I no calls on the wa; out, and was very fortunate in regard to weather, expen I enciag only a few rough days and nights, and being only becalmed fdr a short time one afternoon in the tropics. The usual ceremonies . on crossing the line were, much to the com- fort of the passengers, omitted. Several vessels were sighted on the way out, hut -., only a few of them near enough to speak, and, fortunately, no accidents occurred. Divine service was conducted on board bv a passenger, Mr. T. W. Palmer, who also presided at and organised the Sato day concerts. Among the passengers were a compositor, a carpenter, and a miner, and some young men going on farms np country. On Friday evening last a fare- well concert was held, at the conclusion of which three hearty chee...

FMEMANTLE POLICE COVET. THE following casos were heard at the. Fremantle police court on Monday. Joseph Delaney was brought up on remand, charged with stealing fruit from the garden of Mr. W. X>. Moore. ¡Mr. Love grove appeared for the accused and pleaded very strongly for the release of the boy on the grounds that no prosecu- tor was present, that the boy had already been imprisoned for over a woek and u * he had been guilty of the offence with which he was charged the punishment he had suffered was suffitebnt to meet the . eud6 of justice. After waiting for some time for Mr. Moore to appear the boy was severely reprimanded and dis- charged. Jas. Hughes ostler was charg- ed by Mr. J. Sf Flindell with being drunk, causing a disturbance, and ne- glecting his work. After hearing the evidence of Mr. Flindell, and the state- ment of the accused in reply, he was fined 40s. and forfeiture of any wages due, or one month's imprisonment.

GERALDTOM AS THE BRINDISI OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

GERALDTOM AS THE BRINDISI OF WESTERN^ AUSTRALIA. As for Geraldton bacommg the Brindisi of Australia, there is perhaps but one thing necessary to make it so. But that is a sine qua non decidedly. From Ger- aldton -must start the transcontinental railway, and hom Geraldton it must run, without deviation, to the capital of South Australia. That seasoned passengers would disembark at Geraldton and take the " cars " merely to avoid the troubled waters of the Leuwin, we disbelieve. And unless Geraldton can succeed in set- ting aside the claims of Albany or Frej. mantle aud in becoming the terminus of the transcontinental line, the JBrindUi ship of Australia it is most unlikely to achieve. We have strong doubts, how- ever, whether any port on the west coast will ever become to the Australian what Brindisi is to Western Europe. Is it likely that passengers in any number would exchange the pleasures, the con- veniences, the space, the splendour of the 5reat "ocean greyhounds" of modern ays f...

The mistaken course which the mea bad lent themselves to in the action which they had taken was strongly dwelt upon, and lt was intimated that while the De- partment would be always most anxious to entertain any individual complaints of hardship, and to redress them, if well founded, without delay, any organised or general endeavour to force concessions would not be listened to. Ultimately the men agreed to, withdraw" their resigna tiotis. lu doing so we have no doabtJB| whatever that' ' they follow...
