No lie you can eoeak or act. but it will ramp atter a longer or snorter circulation, like a bill' drawn on Nature's reality, and be presented there for payment—with the caswer, no effects. — Carlglef '?How shall I earn a living?' is the title of an article in a contemporary.

Artesian Wells. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 2 May 1879

Artesian Wells. We suppose that thought and feeling always have and always will pass in wave like manner over communities. Sometimes these risings of public interest can be traced directly to a cause ?which is of rapid growth and at other times a very slight remark will draw attention to something that has long existed quite unnoticed; and then ensues the most intense and vridespread discussion, on it. Just as these subjects rise into notice so also do they generally subside, often times without having attained the end at which they aimed. A fair example of this subsidence niay be quofed in the Uppe^ House ^ reform question about which we heard so much two years since which hits re sulted in little or DOthing, and upon which just now there seems to be no interest at all. We learn, however, from past failures ana warned by them should by all means see chat being on the crest of the wave of public opinion on the subject of increased water pro vision we do not allow it to subside witho...

Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 9 May 1879

Topics. We recently had an. article referring to the need for farmers' associations, and the great scope that there was for their labors, and have several times alluded to the association lately established at Crystal Brook, and this week we reprint a summary of the business done at the latest monthly meeting. It will be seen upon reference to the subjects dealt with that they are identical with chose which we have pressed upon the attention of our readers lately, and that the sides taken also are those we have advocated. We congratulate the body of farmers represented upon the evident desire to concentrate influence upon Buch distinctly farming questions, and believe that the farmers themselves having pronounced against the principle of allowing selections to be mortgaged will have ereat weieht with the Govern ment, and that not only will an increased time be given for payment for land but that Government will arrange to grant loans also.

The Artesian Well System [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 9 May 1879

The Artesian Well System.

Tbere *u a large and representative gathering, and Hi* Worship the Mayor (Dr. Beshiti) occupied the chair. In commencing the proceedings the MATOB said the question they had met to consider « as a far more than personal or alas* question ; it was one of national importance. It was a matter of interest to ever} one that land uninhabited and uuinbabiUble should be made available for .-Ctlement. After the droujcl t from which they had suffered it was aot neee stry to say much about the want of water, but it most be remembered that while in that district the drought had been exceptional, in other place* it was of annual recurrence, and them was much country in the north-east a* well a* in the far north-west, which from the absence of water was useless , There was...

UNDERGROUND WATER SUPPLIES.

As the matter is of such general interest I will, with your permission, briefly call the attention of farmers, squatters, &c., to one thing wherein I think there is reason to believe that many of them in their attempts to find abundant and permanent water supplies, either by wellsinking or borings, make the great mistake of putting down several comparatively shallow wells or boreholes, ranging between 100 feet and 200 feet in depth, and not finding water, or find ing water that is unsuitable for their purpose, abandon these wells or borehole*, and consider the further prosecution of ...
