MR." JOHN DUNN, OF MOUNT BARKER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

MR.' JOHN DUNN, OF MOUNT BARKER. Mr. John Dunn, of Mount Barker, is a re mnrkablo man in many way?. He is ono of the band of sturdy old pioneer* wlio have helped to make South Australia what is is, who, dependent upon their own energy, perseverance, business taet and integrity, have built up permanent industries, the growth of which has been co-equal with thn growth of tho province. Tlio names of these men are inseparable from our history. Though tho early settlers in South Australia have mostly attained to advanced ? ages, instances are rare indeed where colonists have lived to fourscore years and ten ; at any rate, not many who have reached this unusual poiiod of existence after a life of toil with many hardships and application to the harassing pursuits of commerce can show so few signs of physical or mental decay as does the venerable colonist, tho ninetieth anniversary of whoso birthday occured on the 15th Feb. Tho unique ovenfc was to be appropriately celebrated in tho town of...

TERRIBLE MINING ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

TERRIBLE MINING ACCIDENT. Intelligence of the most shocking accident that has ever occurred in the Barrier distriot was sent through from Tarrawingeo Flux quar ries to Broken Hill on 17th February. The only particulars then available were that five quarry men engaged in one of the quarries had been so terribly battered about by an explosion of rackarock that none of them wore expected to recover, and that they had beon plaoed aboard the midday train from Tarrawingee. When the train arrived at Broken Hill a great crowd had assembled at tho stopping place, and a most lamentable sight presented itself. The injured men, who had been provided with stretchers, were suffering fearful agony, four of them being no disfigured as to be almost beyond recognition. It seems from the information supplied by the injured men's comrades that the men, whose names wore Gondosini Giorgio, Ferari Piatro, Daniel Collins. Thomas Morris and M'Mahnn, and about a dozen other men wc*o working in the quarry. El...

EXPORTATION OF BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

EXPORTATION OF BUTTER. It i.M significant of tho undeveloped resources of Victoria that a trifling bonus on butter exported should have nt once given nn immense impetus to the dairying industry and established an export trade which promises to assume large dimensions. There is practically no limit to butter production, granting that the industry will pay. It appears, by the report of the Government dairy expert furnished the other day to the Minister of Agriculture, that the industry is increasing by leaps and hounds. Factories and creameries erected and in course of erection now number 236, and the colony will be the richer if tho number be increased five fold. The sooner the population of this colony gets rid of the notion that tho creation of fictitious value in town lands is a legitimate method of adding to the national wealth the better. We have to draw our real values from the soil, and, fortunately, we will be able to do it more and more ? as profitable markets are opened up....

SERIOUS SUBSIDENCE AT BROKEN HILL. News was brought into town on 18th February that a very, serious settlement had taken place at the Proprietary and Block 14 mi ties, and that it would result in portion of those minej being rendered practically unworkable. Startling wires wero sent away to Melbourne, Adelaide, and Sydney, in profusion, and for somo timo it looked as though tho markot was going to bo knocked lower than it had ever been before, for everybody knows that orocps and rumors of creeps havo for a long time past been used as a moans of sending tho market baok. Hundreds of residents found thoir way up to tho Broken Hill mino before midday, and they were well repaid for their journoy, though tho heat registered 112 in tho stroot.

The people who havo tho work in hand are men who have had exten sive experience in lifting wrecks, and- they nro very sanguine that tho ship will float again. The principals are Messrs.

MARTIN'S STRAW BINDING HARVESTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

MARTIN'S STRAW BINDING HAR VESTER, For many years it lias been the dream of in ventors of harvesting machinery to perfect a l caper and binder that would bind tho sheaf seotirely with its own straw. Since the reaper and binder was first invented wonderful altera tions have taken place in its construction, until now it seoms well nigh impossible to introduce any now feature that will add to its utility or be ? an improvement upon the work it is capable of performing. The march of intellect, however, is great, and it has devolved upon an Australian inventor to show that an improvement enn be introduced which will grently cheapen the cost of harvesting to the farmer and give an un doubtedly premier position to the reaper and binder as the harvest machine of the future. In the old machines wire was used for binding, but it was open to so many objections that t was soon succeeded by twine, for which a most ingenious knotter was invented. Many attempts have since been made to r!o away wit...

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

mmm Extreme dryness lias been the prevailing characteristic during the past month, scarcely any rain having fallen, in consequence the nastures are dried tin and in many parts of the country a green bln.de is not to be seen. Orchards and vineyards are ulso suffering in many places, the growth of grapes as well as apples and pnars being seriously checked in the drier districts. But where irrigation can be practised, quite a won derful effect is being produced, especially on such farm crops as lucerne, which, owing to the great heat of the soil, makes an astonishingly rapid growth as soon as water is applied. Green vegetables have become scarce, and the potato crop has been checked Jin Romo districts though it is good in others. The weather lias, however, been favorablo for harvesting in the lato dis tricts ; the roads remaining dry, crops can be conveyed to markets or railway stations with facility, and as there has not been any rain to wet the bagB which are lying uncovered in im me...

WHAT TO DO IN OASES OF EMER GENCY. SUN SthOKR. — In case of sun tttroko remove tho puison to a cool, dark place, and apply ice or ice water ovor tho head. ' If he seems very weak you may give a little whisky in ice water. Send for a physician if possible. Intemperate men are much more subject to sun stroke than tem perate. Fainting Fits. — Fainting is caused by the blnod leaving the brain. Place the patient flat, and allow the head to bo lower than tho body. Sprinkle cold water in tho face. Hartshorn may be held near the nose, not to it. A half teaspoonful of aromatic Bpirits of ammonia in a wine glass of water will tend to revive the patient and prevent a return. Do not allow persons to crowd around the patient. If the symptoms reour send for a physioian. Choking from Foreign Mattkr. — A smart blow with the flat of the hand on the baok, just below the neok, will often reliove the windpipe. If it does not, send for the doctor at onoo.

QUEENSLAND SUGAR INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 March 1892

QUEENSLAND SUGAR INDUSTRY. Sir S.

After referring to tlio national importance of tho industry, the manifesto goes on to say that it has been urged the revival of tho sugar in dustry would rosult in the rostoration of prosperity throughout the colony, but while he is unablo to attribute to this cause alone so much of tho prevailing depression ns some peoplo are disposed to think, many othor causes being apparent, not only in Queensland but throughout Australasia, ho has arrived at the conclusion that it is tho imperative duty of tho Govuniment to review tho present position and Htnto plainly what they think the right policy to bo adopted by tho country.
