CHAPTER XVIII. CONFIDENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 16 May 1879

CHAPTER XVIH. CONFIDENCE'S. For s second or two be held the letter in bis hand, regarding the outside of it ; and it was with more deliberation than haste that he opened it. Perhaps it was with some little tremor of fear — lest the first words that should meet bis eye might be cruelly cold and distant. What right had be to expect an; thing else ? Many a time, in thinking carefully over the past, he had recalled the words — the very tone — in which he bad addressed her, and bad dis mayed to think of their reserve, which bad on one or two occasions almost amounted to auBferity. He could expect little beyond a formal acknowledgment of the receiving of his letter, and the present that bad accompanied it. Imagine, then, his surprise when he took out from the envelope a number of sheets closely written over in her beautiful, email, neat, hand. Hastily his eye ran over the first few lines ; and then surprise gave way to a singular feeling el gratitude and joy. Was it indeed she who wan wri...

The Trans-continental Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 16 May 1879

The Trans-continental Bail way. Now that the Queenslander Transcontin ental Survey party has safely returned, its mission accomplished, and its investigation complete, it is fitting that we should say a few worae concerning me nexc riep we propose to take in the prosecution of the end we have in view. When the party started on its route the question of a Trans-continental Railway was still an open one. Tbe advantages of such a route for comacerce were as evident then as now, but the unknown difficulties that might be enountered on thj ro^te opened a wide field for adverse speculation. In order to set these doubts at rest we arranged for the expedition that has now accomplished ite work. We have no longer any doubt of the feasibility of the project. The explorers report that they have traversed a route which opposes no natural difficulties to the construction of a railway — continuous level country, intersected by water courses whioh may be crossed by the most in expensive of enginee...

MB. LIPSETT AGAIN. To the Editor of the Record. Sir— Mr. Lipseft'e best friends c nnot but feel tnortifi -d at his last effusion, which from beginning to end is an undeserved attack upon I)r. Ncphit.*-. who. although he has not had the ' experience11 of hie predecessors (and I imagine would rather not have it) appears to be doing his duty. Without going into the relative fitness of Dr. Nesbitt, and Mr. Lipsett.or the election of Town Clerks, &c, I would wish to say a f-w words witb regard to Mr. Liptetl's statements that he and bis predecessor were in the htbit of using their duplicate keys to privately inspect the books and accounts of the Town Clerk. This may be very precautionary, but appears very mean and unmanly, and I should imagine no man of spirit would a eecond time be subject to such unbueiness-Iike and suspici ous conduct. In event of a deficiency the Town Clerk might possibly accuse the Mayor of theft. Mayors are not infallible (as is well known in a case some ye...

BURBA FOOTBALL CLUB. To (he Editor of the Surra Record. Sib— A great many attended the football match o;i Saturday last, anal amongst the gathering there wai a good number cf juveniles of both sexes, and all appeared to thoroughly Bnjoy the game m many respects, but there was one thing that muet bave been a matter of regret to almost every onlooker, end that was tbe conduct of one of the players ia swearing when things did not please him. Now, sir, I think that you will agree with me that our boys have quite facilities enough For growing up in wickedness without being called together to hear tuch language at a game which might be made attractive, amusing and interesting. There is one other matter that I should like to call attention to, and that is that when running at full pace some of tbe players did their beat, end in some inpteneas succeeded in tripping each other up either by placing a leg before them or givirg tbem a thrust at the back of the head. If this practice is continue...

CHAPTER XVII. "FHIR A BHATA!" [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 16 May 1879

CHAPTER XVII. ' FHIE A BHATA !' Yonng Ogilvie had obtained some brief extension of bis leave, but even that was drawing to a close ; and Macleod saw with a eecret dread that the hour of his denarinre was fast approaching. And yet he had not victimized the young man. After that first burst of confidence he had been sparing in his references to the trouble that had beset him. Of what avail, besides, could *Mr Ogilvie's counsels be ? Once or twice he had ventured to approach the subject with some common place assurances that there were always difficul ties in the way of two people getting married, and that they had to be overcome witb patience and courage. The difficulties that Macleod knew of as between himself thai an imposeible goal were di eper than any mere obtaining of ihe consent of friends or the arrangement of a ?way of living. From the moment that the Terrible truth was forced on him he had never regarded his case but as quite hopeless ; and Tft that iu i'O way moderated his ...
