The Crop of Christmas Drink Horrors. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

*riie Ci\¿i> of Cliristmas prink Hoirorf. | The crop of Christmas drink horrors has lieen unusually heavy. The Daily Chronicle «n Boxing Day contained the following : *' With its associations of peace and good -will towards all mankind, Christmas Day ex- ercised no softening influence on Joseph -Baines yesfarday, Tue eye pf tb« great Christian festival had beeff chiefly spent bj this wretched man in quarrelling with hi hard-working wife, who had, for a long tim« past, been the supporter of him and a family of seven children. It was, so far as has ye been ascertained, no misoonduot on the par of the poor woman which oalled forth he: husband's reproaches. She had, it is said incurred his displeasure because she wouh not supply him with more money for drink but the painful scenes whioh continued til an early hour yesterday morning proved bu the prelude to the tragic deed which out short the existence of the wife at a later hour.

Women in France. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

«. Women in France. There are no happier women in the world than French women. For every hour there ie laid out an appointed pursuit of duty or -pleasure. Her house and family are her first care, but although an irreproachable wife and . -affectionate mother, she does not let her duty take the form of drudgery. She knows her <own value and fully realizes the importance of keeping her health and nerves in excellent order, so she will not suffer her cares to mas t- ter her, bat wisely arrange« everything with »careful method, and allows herself time for : .social intercourse, for music, reading walk- ing, dining and amusements of whatever nature she fancies.

THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. [FBOM THE WK6T AU6TBAL1AN.J LAST week saw the close of the first sitting of the first Federal Council for Australasia. We say "for" Aus- tralasia, rather than "of Austra- lasia, because the latter preposition can scarcely be accurately made use of until New South Wales and Sooth Australia adopt the Imperial Enab- ling Act and join the Federatiou. We can, on the other hand, rightly say "of" Australasia, because the machinery is organised and ready for use for as many of the colonies as choose to amil themselves of it. When we recollect the history of the Canadian Dominion, the strong an- tagonism to federation manifested there at first by a majority of the independent provinces, the jealousies which prevented many of them from joining the Union for years after it hud been established, we cannot but look with considerable satisfaction at our own first effort in the direction of organised federal action. For, setting aside New Zealand, whose \ adhesion to the Union...

Valentine's Day. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

Valentine's Day. The time-honoured feast of the senti- mental old saint, the "arch-flamen of Hymen," has again returned. For many days past the shop windows have been full of those attractive offerings with which at this season of the year the de- voted one propitiates the beloved one, and sacrifices at the altar of the rosy-winged god. St. Valentine's Day eclipses all other festivals in Love's calendar as the moon eclipses the stars. There are few lovers in all probability who quite ne- glect the day. If they do not favor their inamoratas with those sentimentally in- teresting missives which young folks de- light to exchange on the 14th of Feb- ruary, they take good care not to look foolish when the pert draper's assistant enquires the size of the gloves required. The valentines travelling through the post today, or which will give our post- man a busy time of it on Monday, are very different from the love missives and tokens exchanged between lovers a hun- dred years ago. It would...

New Zealand and the Colonial Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

New Zealand and the Colonial Exhibi- tion. The Government ©f New Zealand aro determined that that colony shall be ade- quately represented at the forthcoming Exhibition in London. The Priure «>£ Wales, it may he remembered, suggested that the number of Commissioners from each colony should, for obvious reason«, be strictly limited,-six, we believe, being the largest number which any colo- ny should be allowed to send. The New Zealand Government do not consider that six, nor evea throe times six, will bo a sufficient number to represent that colo- ny. They think that nothing short of ttre»tr-ouc Commissioners will be able to do it justice, aud that number has been du'y gazetted. Nobody, it appears, can guess on what principle the twenty-one were selected, or what the object waa of appointing snell a number The press of the colony-turns the whole affair into ridicule, and it must be admitted the ap- pointment of such a huge army of Com- missioners assures tho presence of a comic el...

Our Novel. A STERN CHASE. A STORY IN THREE PARIS. "A stern chase is a long chase" THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER XI (continued.) A WAY OF ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

A STERN CHASE.       A STORY IN THREE PARTS. BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. " A stern chase is a long chase " THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER XI (continued.) A WAY OF ESCAPE. "With the understanding that if she discovered, on seeing her step- mother, that our secret was either suspected or found out, Teresita was to bring me the word ' Yes.' If she was satisfied that our secret was safe,   she was to send the word ' No.' This morning I saw Teresita, and the word was ' No.' So far all is safe. And now that you know what I am going to do, will you help me? It is a hard thing to ask of you, for I am onîy a new friend, and Don Saturnino is an old one; but you may trust me, Rodney. If we succeed, Ines shall never repent, and you shall never regret it. In time her father will surely be glad to know that she is happy. What else but a good deed can it be to rescue her from her enemies ?" " There's a good deal of the lover's logic about your argument," said ...

CHAPTER XII. THE "MANHATTAN." [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

CHAPTER XII. THE "MANHATTAN." Paul Wharton, the captain of the American merchant-steamer Manhat- tan, who was also the owner of that good ship, did not resemble the popu- lar idea of a sailor, except in the open and resolute expression of his face. There was nothing bluff, burly, or wind-contesting in his slight figure,   barely of middle height, and finished off with remarkably small hands and feet, or in his refined, slightly acqui- line features. He was neat in his dress, decisive in his speech, and sparing of it ; a Northerner by birth, and as good a seaman as ever handled a ship in the days of Dibdin and " hearts of oak." The friendship which existed between Captain Whar-   ton and Henry Rodney was of old date, and of that stout and well-wear- ing kind which is sometimes formed between men of quite different char- acter and tastes. They had met accidently during Rodney's first so journ at New York, and, as Wharton was at home just then—having come in f...

BUSH FIRES IN VICTORIA. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

BUSH FIRES IN VICTORIA. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.]       THE papers by the late colonial mail bring us particulars of a disaster of which no previous mention had been made in our telegraphic news. And yet the fire which swept the Heytes- bury forest a few weeks ago was as terrible as the "Black Thursday ' conflagration of historic fame, though happily unaccompanied by the same loss of life. This fire occurred in a vast forest stretch beyond the Otway Ranges of Victoria, back from Port Campbell and from Warnam- bool, and left 50 miles of country a smoking ruin. Full of thrilling and pathetic interest are the de- tails of the narrow escapes and losses of the settlers. But, to out- siders, of almost greater interest is the insight given of the lives those set- tlers lead, of the hardships they en- counter and of the savage country they have chosen to subdue. From the recital we West Australians can derive at any rate this assurance: that if the c...

MR. GRIBBLE AND THE SKYLARKERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

MB. GRIBBLE AND THE SKY- LARKERS. To THE EDITOR. SIR,-Permit me through the medium of your columns to give an unqualified denial as to the truth of a paragraph which appeared in the Daily News of the llth inst, referring to an alleged dis- graceful assault committed on board the s.s. Natal on the person of the Rev. J. B. Gribble. Having been a passenger on board, I am in a position to prove that this statement (emanating as no doubt it does, from the Revd gentleman himself) is grossly exaggerated and in many respects utterly false. As to what occurred on deck, I believe it originated in some one, whilst larking on the quar- ter deck, being pushed and falling over Mr. Gribble. Mr. Gribble then sprang up in a state of great excitement, calling for assistance, and ran down to the cabin   where he stated to an officer of the ship that his life was in danger from some   men on deck, also adding a number of   threats as to what he would do. Taking th...

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

NEW NORCIA. [By BUCOLIC.] The above station, presided over by his Lordship Bishop Salvado, stands far in advance of any mission for civilizing the native races ever established in the Southern hemisphere, and is almost the only instance of success attending such efforts. To the founder and head of the mission belongs all the honour, and it is only by the sacrifice of a lifetime that his object has been attained. New Norcia stands about eighty miles from Perth, ou the main road to Champion Bay. The country was selected by   the present Bishop, then Father Salvado, in 1846. He was accompanied by Father Serra and two lay brothers, who, after a few months, returned to Perth, leaving   Father Salvado alone to battle his way amongst savage natives aud without   regular supplies. It is only those having had similar experience who know what those privations mean. Even at this early time the Bishop's kindly tact and genial disposition won him the respec...

Questionable Justice. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

Questionable Justice. A. singular clemency has been extended ^by the authorities to wards the two con- victs, Janies Clinton and Samuel Wignell, who, on the 4th oí February, 1881, were ^sentenced to twenty years penal servitude for burglary. The case against them, it frill be remembered, was that in the middle of a January night of that year ikey broke into the dwelling house of Miss Catherine .Oliver, un the Guildford Road. The only occupants of the house K»t the time were Miss Oliver aud her father, an aged and infirm íuvalid. One -of them had, twice pi uviously, the same night, requested to be supplied with wine, . and being refused it pretended to leave the place. A little after they attacked the place. When the meu had ef- fected an entrance by bursting in ¡¡(the door, they searched the house, *-and used such terrible threats tu the unfortunate lady that she gave them -all the money she possessed, and food besides. They then went away. For that crime they received the severe se...

The Ladies' Column. [All communications for this column should be written on one side of the paper only, and be addressed to HOUSEWIFE, WESTERN MAIL OFFICE, Perth.] KITCHEN. SOUPS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 February 1886

[AU communications for this column should be written on one side of the paper only, and be addressed to HOUSEWIFE, WKBTEEN MAIL OFFICE, Perth."] LBY A HOUSEWIFE.] KITCHEN. SOUPS. Last week I dwelt on stock, the found- ation proper of all soups. This week I purpose giving a few examples of the way io which different soups are prepared. In the first place, we will divide them into three different classes-clear, thick and purées. Clear soup, of course, is transpa- rent, clear and thin ; thick soup, as its name implies, ia not transparent but of the consistency of cream; a paree (a French word for which there is no exact equivalent in the English language) differs from thick soups in only that a purée is /thickened by having ita ingredients-peas '-^fcfor instance-rubbed through a sieve, whereas thick soups are thickened with arrowroot or something of the kiwd. Mac caroni and vermicelle soups and other clear soups are simply maccaroni and ver- micelle boiled in stock. Great care should b...

NEWCASTLE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

NEWCASTLE NOTES. From Newcastle a correspondent writes under date Feb. 10th:-"The heat has been most oppressive during this month, but we have the advantage of eur city friends in pleasant cool nights, whereas the heat continues night and day " down below."-I am told that on Saturday a dinner is to be given to Mr. Gardiner in recognition of his valued services, he being I the only surveyor who has completed a good and practicable line from Clackline to Newcastle. It has been a hard and difficult task over rooky and hilly coan- j try, but Mr. Gardiner would not be beaten, so we hope to have a large meet- j ing at the dinner on Saturday, and as soon as possible to see the line started. A rumour is afloat that we shall have the narrow gauge. Surely this is not true as the Commissioner of Bailwaya almost promised Newcastle the wider gauge. I suppose, however, we must be thankful for small mercies.-The 18th has been fixed for the annual Tea Meeting and Bazaar at Culham, the proceeds to b...

THE EARLY DAYS OF KIMBERLEY AND THE NORTH WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

' '.' , THE EARLY DAYS OF KIMBER- ' '. . LEY AND THE N0R1H WEST.1 (Br Bucolic.) .. Since Mr. Alexander Forrest's explor ' "" ing trip from the DeGrey river lo Fort Darwin, the district named Kimberley by the gallant explorer has at- tracted considerable attention both in our .f . \ -own colony and amongst our eastern neigh ' ' ' ' ¿ours who have invested large sums of money in turning its vast resources to account. It is not my intention at this time, however, to enlarge upon those .» resources or to refer to what is being ' ' V done at the preseut day, so much as to de '. acribe occurrences of over twenty years ago, which have passed out of the recol- lection oí almost all, excepting those >'. , actually concerned in the events.

OUR GERALDTON LUTTER. ? The great fire of Geraldton has unlike the great fire of London not been success- ful in stamping out a,plague. The plague of which we have to complain is " the Gribble nuisance." Wherever one (goes this obnoxious person is the topic of con- versation, and as there is only one opinion concerning him it becomes decidedly monotonous. I did not go off to the Natal \ last week, nor did Mr, Gribble come ashore so I had no Opportunity of inter- viewing the lion of the hour, even had I been so disposed. But I am afraid my reception would not have been ultra cordial had 1 introduced myself as yoar representative, besides which I am glad to see, for the sake of a much suffering com inanity, that you " have done wich Mr. Gribble." If you had also done for him I don't think 1 should have felt sor- ry.

CERTIFICATED MASTERS AND THE COASTING TRADE. TO THE EDITGOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

CERTIFICATED MASTERS AND I THE COASTING TRADE. | To the Editor. Sir,--There is a notice in a recent issue of the Government Gazette to the effect that after the first of July next, all coasting ves.-els whether cnrrymg pas- sengers, or cargn only, will be required to be sailed by a certificated master. I am in- formed that when the Amended Passen- ger Aet was passed it was understood it would not apply to vessels merely car- rying cargo, otherwise owners of coasters would have strongly protested against its becoming law. As I shall shew, its provisions if enforced will interfere with the coasting trade besides doing an in- justice to the owners and present masters. .According to the law relating to the ex- amination for masters, the candidates, be- sides being acquainted with seamanship are required to have served previously as master for one year. Thw present masters have been in command of their vessels, «erne five, and others eight years, without meeting with a mishap of any kind...
