THE ALBANY SAND PATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

TUE ALBANY SAND PATCH. -« The Albany Saud Patch question has v. on several occasions been discussed in tbe Legislative Council. It first of all crop- ped up in 1878 when representations were made to the Government to the effect that this huge sand drift at the South West eoruer of the inner harbour of King George's Sound threatened gradually to fill up the deep water basin. This saud drift begins about three müeß inland at a height of about 400£t. above sea level and stretches from there to ti distance of about a mile into the harbour. It averages a breadth of about halt a mile. From an examination of iis source it appears that it is the result of a peculiar concentra- tion of the force uf the wind upon a par- ticular part of the hill where it scoops out __ the sand and drives it in oue huge mass " down towards the sea. It is like a giganfc * tie and slowly moving sand glacier, if the ( term may be permitted ; and there is little doubt that if its course had not been « checked it wo...

LOYALTY OF THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

LOYALTY OF THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. One of the first acts of the Federal Council, after assembling for the despatch of business, was to send a telegram to the Queen expressive of the Council's loyalty and devotion to Her Gracious Majesty* throne and person. Next day, at the President's banquet, to the astonishment and scandal of the guests, Mr. Donglas, in responding on behalf of Mr. Service, who was indisposed, to the toast of the Council, took occasion to remark that federation meant the ultimate entire freedom of Australasia from the connec- tion with the mother country. Cries of " No, no !" assailed the speaker, bnt he persisted in the expression of his views and declared that as soon as England be- came engaged in any great war Austral- asia would quietly 'cut the painter.* "The Soudan expedition settled that,"' said Mr. Service. " The Soudan expédi- tion was all humbug!' retorted Mr. Douglas, resuming his seat. To the honour of the delegates be it said, speak- er after speaker sub...

The Ladies' Column. KITCHEN. COOKING CHOPS AND STEAKS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

^?te MiL^5 <MlSi& - £ AU communications for this column should be written on one side of the paper only, and be addressed to Housewife, Westben Mau, Office, Perth. [BY A B0USEWD7E.] KITCHEN. Cooking Ohops an» Sthaes. It is a very old saying-and a very true one-that the test of a good' cook is to cook a ste&k and boil a potatoe. It is utterly impossible to begin to cook a Steak without having attended to the fire fully a quarter of an hour beforehand. It must be bright and clear and devoid of smoke. Place the gridiron on the fire for a minute or so and then rub it with a piece of paper. It may seem strange to advise the use of paper, bat anyone who has tried the experiment will see how efficacious it is. The steak must be weil beaten with a rolling pin and peppered (not salted) before being plaoed on the gridiron. The length of time required will greatly depend npon the thickness ot the steak. It is said that both chops and j steaks should be turned nine ti...

NATIVE TROUBLE AT SHARKS I BAY. '_._L i Undeb date Feb. 3 a correspondent writes from Sharks Bay:-"About the 4th of January a native woman in the employ of Mrs. Thomas was most cruelly I treated by a native named Poland, who ' cut the woman about the head with (a [ boomerang and speared her in the back, of which wounds she has since died. The native had no excuse for the crime as he was not her husband or any connection. He is still at large, the police not being able to take him. They have no horses and their firearms are worse thau useless.

FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

FASHIONS. Ladies' Pocket Handkebchiefs. -Fancy pocket handkerchiefs are now tacked into the bodice very high under the chin. If with lace borders, they look well under bonnet strings at after- noon receptions. The Primrose Dames and their followers use pins with small primrose heads to fasten their bonnet strings or attach the corners of their fancy handkerchief« to their bodices. There are also pretty little safety pin gipsy brooches, with a tiny primrose ia the centre, used for the* same purpose. Striped muslin pocket handkerchiefs in soft blended hues are novel, also self I coloured oues with Valenciennes lace round the edge, or vaud}ked ones with horseshoes in two colours alternately iu every vandyke. For dee y mourning, plain white with very deep hemstitched borders Are considered iu better taste than black bordered ones. Coloured silk ones are very popular, peapiug out of the fronts of bodices, with two, or even three, corners pinned back with fancy headed pius or small brooch...

THE WORK TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

THE WORK TABLE. JNETTINO.-letting is commenced in several ways, but perhaps the best is the tying of a piece of thread in a knot aud fastening it to a heavy cushion, thus form- ing the foundation for the first row. W hen the work is finished, the thread is taken out. Take the loop thread, fasten it to the cushion, tie the working thread to the loop, take the filled needta in the right hand and the mesh in the left, hold the latter horizontally between the thumb and fore-finger, lay the working thread over the mesh downwards round the I middle finger of the left hand, and then | between the mesh and the fore-finger, a little towards the left, where the left i thumb encloses the thread, and by that means the loop laid round the mesh and finger is firmly held. Then the needle is carried again towards the right and pushed from underneath through the thread loop lying round the left hand, forming a wide" scallop with the thread. Then the needle is placed under the loop and between the fi...

THE LATE RIOTS. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

THE LATHI KIOTO. [FROM THE WEST AUBTBAIilAB.J It is difficult at this distance and with only the skeleton of intormation afforded us by the telegraph, to esti- mate the true significance of the late riots in London. We are told that a large gathering of the unemployed a multitude- of whom, sham and real, may always be trusted to turn out of a frosty morning in London-collected in Trafalgar ¡Square to bear " the labour question discussed." The dis* cussion seems to have been chiefly in the hands of the socialists, of which Mr. Hyndhan appears to have been the chief spokesman, a gentleman who has since obtained the distinction of being prosecuted by the Government of his country. Apparently wearying of mere talk, the mob proceeded to action. Pall Mall opens invitingly by a double entrance into Trafalgar Square,and is lined with clubs and the houses of people high up in the social scale. Accepting these as ostentatious challenges to their good cause, the erowd showed their sense of the...

The Experimental Farm at Dookie, Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

The Experimental Farm at Dookie, Victoria. The following report respecting the pro- ceedings at the Experimental Farm, Dookie, during the year 1885, has been forwarded to the secretary of the Agricultural depart- ment by Mr. M. Herdman, the manager of tbe farm : Experimental Farm, January 1, 1886. Sir.-As usual at this time of year I sum up the past year's operations and results. Every month, as you are aware, I have giv- en you all noticeable events transpiring each month ; but, by looking back on the year just gone, gleanings can be cu.led out which may be useful to the farming com- munity. If experiments tried are not al- ways successful, failures have their benefits, and may be avoided. BAINFAIX. The quantity of rainfall has a more im- portant bearing on the farming community than any other class, more especially to the residents of the northern districts of Victor- ia. A month to five weeks of scorching hot weather, in the month of October turns a good harvest into one of famin...

PEARL FISHING AT THE NOR WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

PEARL FISHING AT THE NOR WEST. -«- I From London a correspondent writes -" Several partners in one of the pearl- ing enterprises at the N.W. coast of Western Australia are now in London, en- gaged in purchasing and shipping out diving apparatus to be used at the pearl fisheries. These pearl fisheries com- menced by employing the aboriginal natives, who dive without any apparatus, but can only do so in the warm months. Now, however, considerably more capital is being employed, and Malay divers, to work with diving apparatus, are being engaged, and the pearl fishery will be continued throughout the year. The steam service now running between Western Australia and Singapore enables the pearl shells to be forwarded rapidly and regu- larly to tie home market, and a con- siderable development is taking place in this industry.

CHILD'S PICTORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

CHILD'S PICTORIAL. The January number of the Child's Pictorial, a monthly coloured magazine,, published by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, has been sent us for notice in these columns. This little magazine is tastefully got up, and illus- trated with those charming little flat' coloured "Greenaway*' pictures, which are such an improvement on the old style of years ago. The reading matter con- sists of harmless stories and ballads, which, no doubt, would be appreciated by little children who have neither loarnt to thirst for the sensational, nor are over > exacting' as to style.

Headed by the M.R. V. Band» the scholars and their friends marched ia procession, with banners flying, to the William Street Jetty, where a steamer was waiting to convey them to the Grove. An ample stock of good things had been laid in for the children's delectation ; but,. * unfortunately, it was found impossible to secure the most desirable element in a successful picnic-fuir weather. The rain fell copiously during the morning,and although an awning was erected to shelter the picnickers, everyone was completely drenched. Shortly after mid- day it was decided to return, and the poor wet children aud grown-up people gladly re-entered the boats and set off tor Perth To compensate them for their disappointment, it was arranged that tho children and their friends should meet in the Congregational scho...

BORING FOR WATER AT EUCLA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

I BORING FOR WATER AT EUCLA. With regard to a second attempt about to be made by the South Australian Go- vernment to bore for water at the head of the Great Australian Bight, the Observer says :-" It will be remembered that some years ago borings f«r wa tar were under- . taken by the South Australian Govern- ment near Eucla, but were abandoned on salt water being reached. Since then the Government Geologist has visited the lo- cality, and he has formed a very favour- able opinion as to the presence of good fresh water beneath the marine tertiary limestone chalk. On account of this re pert the Government* hare decided to make another effort to obtain water, and another party, under Mr. Waddell, who has a complete outfit of Americau boring machinery, will leave by the Grace Dar- ling on Tuesday next. The boring will be on Nullabor Plain, about 20 miles, north-west of the head of the Great Australian Bight. The machinory and part -of the plant will be landed at Fowler's Bay, and an at...

Good wives, like echoes, still should do, Speak but -when they're spoken to ; But not like echoes, most absurd, To have for orer the last word.

Things Worth Knowing. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

Things Woxth Knowing. A half-teaspoonful of soda in half a cup of water will relieve sick headache caused by indigestion. A fever patient is cooled off and made comfortable by frequent sponging with warm soda water. Warm mustard water should be given to one who has accidentiy swallowed poison ; this will cause vomiting ; after that give a cup of strong coffee ; that will counteract the remaining effects. When going from a warm room out into the cold air, close your mouth and breathe through your nose, te prevent takinp cold. A hard cold is ofttimes cured by a cup of hot lemonade taken at bedtime, as it produces perspiration. Consumptive night sweats may be ar- rested by sponging the body at night in salt and water. Teething children may be relieved of convulsions by being immersed in a warm bath, and cold water applied to the head. For croup or pneumonia bruise raw onions, lay on a cloth with powdered gum camphor sprinkled over it, and ap- ply to chest and lungs, aud cover with hot ...

AMERICAN HINTS ON FRUITPRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

AMERICAN HINTS ON FRUIT PRESERVING. Always avoid jars where the rubber | ring is laid on the top of the jar. The j rubber lying ou top and coming direetly i im contact with the fruit taints it with the sulphor contained in the rubber. There are two methods of expelling air. One is, heating fruit in jars ; the other, pouring fruit in jars after keating. The first method is thought to be preferable for fruit. The second method ie to be used for vegetables, &e. Small fruits, such as berries, cherries, currauts, &c, do not require as much cooking as the larger fruits, in fact, it in* jures them and prevents a clear syrup by bursting the skins. When the fruit is put into the jars hot there are two methods to prevent break- age: one is ti> immerse the jar in warra and then hot water ; the other is, wet a towel in cold water, doable it four or fire times, and set the jar on it while pouring in the hot fruit. This latter plan seems unreasonable, but has proved to be a per...
