DARDANUP. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 15 March 1893
DARDANUP. [From Our Correspondent.] Monday. After a long spell of warm weather we are at length enjoying some de lightfully cool days. The potato crops which had been languishing for Avant of rain, will be greatly benefitted by the few showers that fell during the past week, and feed, which has been very backward, will now spring up. The ground at Dardanup is almost fit for the plough at present, aud some farmers are talking of starting operations at once. However, I msiy mention that early ploughing has been found unsuitable to the soil here, and as a rule, the land when ploughed early, rarely produces a good crop. Messrs. Honey and Co.'s saw-mill on the Crooked Brook (called the Spot Mill), which has not been work ing of late owing to the scant supply of water, has been taken over by Mr. W. J. Connell, and is working at present under his supervision. There is still a great scarcity of water in the locality, the supply for the engine having to be carted fully a mile, and a charge o...

GREENBUSHES NEWS. GREENBUSHES, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 15 March 1893
OBEENB USHES NE WS. [From our Correspondent.] Green-hushes, Friday. A most beneficial thunderstorm passed over the tin-fields on Wednes day last. On the previous day before day-light it commenced to thunder in the distance towards the north and north-west, and continued all clay. On Wednesday morning the thunder was a great deal closer, and at about eleven o clock it broke over the fields with loud crashes, and a good deal of lightning and rain. The shower continued for about an hour, and left good drops of water in the clay holes all over the fields. Since then I learn we only got the tail end of the storm, for I hear that at the Upper Capel the brook was running freely. The following .day (Thurs day), came out extremely hot. This morning (Friday), the day. dawned with a good deal of thunder in the distance to the south-west ; towards mid-day the sky became o'ercast with thick masses of clouds, and several light showers of rain fell during the afternoon. All day the air was sultry ...

VASSE NEWS. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 15 March 1893
VASSE NEWS. (From Our Correspondent.) Vasse, Saturday. Bishop and Mrs. Parry arrived by the mail-coach yesterday week. On Sunday the Bishop held a confirma tion service, when he confirmed 29 persons. Several others ought to have put in an appearance but did not do so. On Monday a number of persons of both sexes met at the rectory to wel come Bishop and Mrs. Parry, and to discuss various matters connected with the church. His Lordship and his lady have been very busy visiting during their stay, and left yesterday by the Flinders. I find that I made a mistake in the name of the gentleman who was re ported as having been appointed to the position of medical officer at the Vasse. I should have written Dr. Kelsall, not Kinsella: It now transpires that he wrote down to see if he could get rooms here, but was coming on his own account if he came at all, and not on account of the Go vernment as it was supposed at first that he was. The investigation into the strand ing of the brig Dato was ...

On both sides of the Margaret River are caves, more or less known, but those we visited were on the south side of the river, in Mr. Bussel's run. We rode down.

RIOTS IN NEW YORK. LONDON, March 19. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 22 March 1893
RIOTS IN NEW YORK. London, March 19. News from New York is to the effect that on St. Patrick's Day several riots took place. The trouble finally resulted in a free fight been the factions, which was not suppressed without much difficulty.

TEE DARDANUP RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 22 March 1893
THE DARDANUP RACE 8, (By Our Reporter.) Friday last found many devotees of the Patron Saint of the Emerald Isle assembled at the railway station to do him honor by attending the Olympian games held on his nativity at Dardanup Racecourse. The morn ing dawned most threateningly, and there was every indication that Jupiter Pluvius would dispute the day with St. Patrick. The excessive display ot green ribbon, however, appeared to excercise a tranquilizing effect on the horizon, as at about 10 a.m. King Sol peered through the density of the clouds a gentle zephyr hailed his presence, and a cool and delightful day resulted. Precisely at 10 o'clock the shriek of the locomotive warned all aboard and a goodly number responded to the invitation. Continuous stop pages occurred on the route to take up groups on pleasure bent, and by the time the train got to the course its capacity was full}'- taxed, and up wards of 200 must have disembarked. The train proceeded to Boyanup' and brought back a c...
