BEWARE HOW YOU DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

BEWARE HOW YOU DRINK. What many people, especially children« call thirst, is only a sense of dryness iu the throat. This uncomfortable sensation is caused by ttie general habit of breath- ing through the mouth. The air taken into the luugd dries the mouth, tongue, and upper part of the throat. To drink for the purpose of relieving the month made dry by bein^ open is frequently to overload the stoni&cu with fluids which ar* not necessary, andwhich,conseqaently, are detrimental to digestion. It is pecu- liarly injnrious also, for it washes into the stomach all til« font solids which, in the form of dust, find their way into the mouth and throat. Persons who are com- pelled to cool and meisten their palates should first rinse tho month with a sip or two of water. . If afterwards they feel that they must drink, they should imbibe by single sips. By this method they would 1 ba as fullysatisfied with half a pintof water as with a pint swallowed hastily. Iced water is the great Ame...

THE CRAWFORD DIVORCE CASE. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

" % THE CRAWFORD DIVORCE I ^ CASE. I [from the west AUSTB,AL1*.N.J ! The trial which we may take it has *been dividing the inteiest of London ?ers with the riots of the unemployed, viz., Mr. Crawford's divorça case, has come to a close. The details fur- nished by telegraph are disappointing- ly meagre. Sir Charles Dilke the .co-respondent, it ia stated, has been ?acquitted, but we are further led to infer that the charge of infidelity ¡brought by Mr. Crawford against his wife hits been affirmed. Somewhat dubious is the position in which the issue of the trial leaves Sir Charles. The report says that he declined to be .examined-of course it is to be pre- sumed for the detenco. The evidence for the piosecution must have failed to substantiate the case against him, .otherwise it must be supposed that _is appearance in the box would have been inevitable. But the evidence hav- ing so far broken down, fair Chablkb, or his counsel, waa unwilling to risk the evil chances of cross examinatio...

JUBILEE OF THE GERMAN EMPEROR. BERLIN, Jan. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

JUBILEE OF THE GERMAN EM- PEROR. - ? a > Berlin, Jan. 3. In spite of the Emperor's expressed wish that the 25th anniversary of his accession to the Throne of Prussia should be celebrated throughout his dominions as quietly and unostentatiously as possible, there was a something about the observance of his Silver Jubilee of rule to-day which forcibly remind- ed one of the circumstances attending the solemnization of his Golden Wedding ßeven years ago. The lord of tbe most effective and formidable army ou the Continent of Europe, the' German Emperor, is avery powerful Monarch, but all his power suffices not to restrain within bounds congenial to himself the love and admiration of his devot- ed subjects. The Prussians are incapable of moderation in their loyalty on any fête day of their beloved Emperor-King. The Kaiser had fondly hoped to celebrate his Silver Jubilee in a manner befitting his own great age, but he was carried along, so to speak, on the stream of the popular will, an...

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. PERTH WHOLESALEPRICESCURRENT. FRIDAY, February 19,1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL BEPORT. PEBTH WHOLESALEPBICESCüBBENT. ' Fridat, February 19,1886. The departure.of the Natal and Otway for the northern parts has freshened business, but in other respeots trade is very dull and prices weak. A general opinion prevails that with the advance of the year, rates for cereals are likely to harden, and this idea chiefly arises from the improbability of im- ports taking place from the Eastern Colo- nies, except on a very small scale, as prioes there are far too high to admit of shipments to W. A. There is great uncertainty as to the quantity of produoe at present held in the colony, and we know that in som« quar- ters where large stocks were asserted to be held, no surplus beyond local needs is avail* able. Flour is slow of sale and bakers are very fanciful about local brands. The same brand whioh is sought for by one buyer, ia rejected by another on the ground of past unsatisfactory quality. Wo can only account for this conflict of opinion, on the ground ...

LONGEVITY OF FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

LONGEVITY OF FISH. "*" It is not generally known that there is hardly any limit to the age of a ñsk. Pro- fessor Baird, of the United States Fish Commission, is the authority for the state- ment that there is authentic evidence to show that carp have attained an age of two hundred years. Professor Baird also says that there is a tradition that within fifty years a pike was living in Bussia whose sge dated back to the fifteenth century. " There is nothing," he says, " to preventa fish from living almost indefinitely, and it has no per- iod of maturity, bat grows with each year of life." There «re gold fish in this city that have belonged to one family for over fifty years. They do not appear to be much larger than when they were originally placed in the aquarium, and are every bit as lively as they were when young. There are so many fish stories in circulation that the or- dinary reader has almost made up his mind that fish and truth do not go well together. Probably some persons wil...

NO INQUESTS NECESSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

NO INQUESTS NECESSARY. " I've seen many a 'fly coon' in my day, but that young fellow over there at the corner table is the boss of them all ; he's loaded for any kind of game that comes along," said the restaurant wan, indicating a bright eyed mulatto who was pulling a nap- kin into the shape of a lily to adorn a goblet. " If you'll go ever there and work off any of your old chesnuts on him without getting the worst of it, I'll give you the best dinner on the bill of fare." " Thank you, but Tin not hungry ; and, moreover, I'm not in the chest- nut business. You'd better call in the Count who has the stand out in front.

THE NEW NORCIANS V. FREMANTLE C.C. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

THE NEW NORCIANS ». FEE- I MANTLE O.C. The cricket match between the New Norcian team of cricketers, captained by Mr. H. B. Lefroy, and the Fremantle 0.0. was played yesterday at Fremantle. The previous match between these teams was played in 1882, when the natives won. During this year, however, the Fremantle team has shown excellent form, and it was ex- pected that they would recover their lost laurels. The weather during the morn- ing wa» cool, but the light was variable, the san gleaming out now and then from behind clouds which threatened rain. The toss was one by Mr. Lefroy, who elected to bat and sent in to the wickets« Johnny Walley and Freddy Yrbel to face the bowling of Bateman and Herbert. The service» of a wicket keeper were dispersed with. The first ball off Bateman was hit to leg in splendid style for four by Walley, and his last of the aameover was snicked cleverly by the same bat for two. Yrbel received Herbert's first over which was a maiden, the balls beating short...

NEW NORCIANS V. PERTH C.C [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

NEW NOROIANS V. PERTH C.C The cricket match between the Kew Norcian native team, captained by Mr. H. B. Lefroy, and Perth O.G. was fixed to open yesterday morning at ten o'clock. Just when stumps were pitched, however, rain began to tall, and delay was considered necessary. The players re- mained within the pavilion from ten till one hoping for the sky to clear, but time did not bring about much improvement. Finally, it was determined to commence the game, wet or fair, at two o'clock, and a few minutes after that time the natives took to the field to open the attack. Rain was then falling, and as the afternoon advanced it gathered strength until the players were soaked through and through Play was begun with Gamson and Hus- sey at the batting erease and Yackimarra and Johnny Maher trundling. The first over came from Yackimarra, who is a left hander with a decided break from leg. The wet state of the matting caused the balls to shoot, and the batsmen had de- cidedly the worst of the ...

Women Bettors. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

i Women Bettors. , Some time ago, two German ladies-or females, we are rather inclined to say, in consideration of what is to follow-with betting propensities, competed for the doubt- ful honour of being the greatest coffee drink- ers in the Empire. The numerical results were satisfactory, and from farther conse- quences we would iu charity not again lift the veil. The folly of this wager has re- cently been matched by another undertaken by two French women, who represent the exact prototype of the German females bettors. In order to ascertain which of the two could talk the faster a regulation tourna- ment was arranged, ia which a friend acted as umpire on either side. It was agreed that the prize of l.ÔOÛf should be the win- ner's meed, and the time for this battle of tongues were fixed at three hoars during which one of the champions, reading from Eugene Sue's feuilleton, succeeded in pro- nouncing 203,560 words. She was, however, defeated by her adversary, who managed to jabber ...

A Quack Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

A Quack Murder. j The following anecdote is related by a correspondent of the Naples Fungólo-"A man who had given indications of insanity was denounced by his neighbours to his wife 'as having a spirito maligno.' Influenc- ed by their suggestions, ehe had recourse to a wizard of high repute near at hand, with whom she entered into an agreement for the cure of her husband at a certain price. The poor madman was taken to the house of the «caceta (the exorciser), who was a peasant. After having been well beaten and pounded he was taken home half stupefied. Three days after the, experiment was repeated in the presence of his wife and some relatives who accompanied him. The scaccia began to strike him with his fists-inflicting heavy ! blows on the head-then, seized him by the I hair, he dragged him about the roem, and lastly got on his chest and kicked him. On being put into bed he suffered great pain, throwing up a quantity of blood and expired in five hours. The police on being informe...

SPORTING GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 20 February 1886

SPORTING GOSSIP. (By Vindex.) The event of chief interest in Perth during this week has been the arrival of the New Norman team of aboriginal cricketers on their annual tour. I saw them at practice on Saturday, and was much struck with the excellence of their play. Few people w ho have not come into contact with the aboriginals would expect to find them making such a dis- play as they do at cricket. They are good bowlers, splendid fielders, and some of them play a fair game with the bat. They, moreover, play with a relish. Most of them are half-castes, but there are amongst them some pure aboriginals who play as keenly and as well as the rest. Their best man is Blurton, who seems to be equally at home whether wicketkeeping, batting, or bowling. Their first match was against the Perth C.C. on Tuesday last, but rain prevailed all day, and there was no chance of the match being played out. The game did not open until after two o'clock, and closed before four, the rain then falling in t...
