EURELIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 16 January 1920

EURELIA. January 6th, 1920.-The long looked for happy time of the year has come and gone and life is going its old usual jog again. Christmas eve, 1919, will, long be remembered by the heavy rains (over 2 inches wre registered in a private gauge near the town) which fell between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m., turning: small dry creeks into raging torrents, bringing distress and disaster to travel lers, especially motorists, several of whom, the writer believes, had rather a lively time trying to cross creeks,, getting stuck in the mud and so forth. This little town has been having quite: a busy time since the holidays started, the usual contingent of Eureliaites arriving at their respective homes t<4 spend a Merry Christmas in the bosom of their family, bringing along with, them friends and relatives. Miss C. Page and-her brother, Mr. F. Page, spent their holidays with their parents. Miss Winnie Clements, from Adelaide Observation School, is also at her home. Mr. F. L. Kaerger, from...

CARRIETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 16 January 1920

CARRIETON. The country at Carrieton and sur rounding districts is getting a green ap pearance which the glorious rain has been responsible for. It is| surpi ieing how quickly this time of. the year,- the rapid growth the green herbage and salt bush is making it is nothing unusu&l to see annual saltbush 3 to 5 inches high. Should another inch of rain be recorded during the month of January, then there should be abundance of feed, and the graziers will be in luck's way, as ihey are already calculating the prices of breeding' ewes, which no doubt will range from £2 to £3 per head, on ac count of the drought which has pre vailed in Queensland and New South Wales. The young sports of Eurelia visited Carrieton and tried conclusions with the young sports of Carrieton, in a tennis match on Saturday last. The match proved very interesting, and a large crowd was present to witness the match. The home team defeated the visitors by 11 sets t<^8. Afternoon tea was-pro vided fo...

"POSSUM PADDOCK." [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 16 January 1920

,"POSSUM PADDOCK." Direct from the most phemonenal season on record comes the great Aus tralian . comedy drama, "Possum Pad dock" played by an all Australian . cast, headed by Fred MacDonald, the Dave of "On ..Our Selection" fame, and it has proved itself everywhere as the greatest tonic for jaded nerves ever presented. From six weeks in Sydney, six weeks in Melbourne, and a season of 16 nights at the Exhibition Gardens in Adelaide, where it played to no less than 50,000 people, it comes to your own. town with the. same scenery, the same cast and effects. Even the: kookaburras which are part and parcel of the sliow. are to be here. The producer (Miss Kate Howarde) came into Sj'dney from' a sojourn in the great Australian bush with the script of a play that was des tined to set the whole of Australia lapghing. She gathered round ' her a company of brilliant Australian players, each one true to type. She chose Fred MacDonald to play the part of Billy McQuade, written, in fact, for Mr....

TBr«e Convictions and Pines for each HoteL At the Peterborough Court on Wed nesday, the four local, hotelkeepers were charged 011 the information of Inspec tor O'Brien with breaches of the Li censing Act.

TOWN HALL, JANUARY 22, 1920. GRAND VOCAL AND INSTRUMENTAL CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 16 January 1920

TOWN HALL, JANUARY GRAND VOCAL AND INSTRU MENTAL CONCERT. In the Peterborough Town Hall on Thursday evening, January 22, an en tertainment of- exceptional merit is. being given in aid of the local hos pital. The program includes a mucli varied fare of musical numbers by visiting artistes, supported by "The Frivolities'.' and "The Frivolities" Or chestra." : . Amongst the visiting artistes, Miss Dorothy Reed, a brilliant contralto, is bound to make a great impression; this talented singer has a voice of un common beauty and purity of tone; contraltos of Miss Reed's calibre are few and far between, and this young lady has few equals in the State. Miss Vera Ren wick is a violinist of note, and her items will be looked forward to with interest, as this lady comes to us with a great reputation. Mrs. V. McDonald, another visitor, is a pianiste of that versatile order who are as at home in comic opera as in the classics: it is very unusual for a pianiste to excel in both, as this lady does...

"JOYFUL SPIRTS" V. "ANGEL'S REST." (By "Ardinski Popoffski.") [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 16 January 1920

"JOYFUL SPIRTS'* V. "ANGEL'S « REST." (By "Ardinski Popoffski.") Arising out of a challenge issued hy the "Angels Rest" to the "Joyful Spirits," a match was played at the showgrounds on Saturday last. Long before the time of starting, large crowds thronged the ground?, and opinions varied as to which team would "bring home the bacon." The "Joyful Spirits" assembled at their historic mansion, and from there marched in full bloom to the sccne of battle. Rev. Father Hawke guarded each hotel, and the Spirits arrived quite sober. Their physogs were snapped before the match com menced. Several "Angels's Rest"' players* protested against this, and made the accusation that the "Spirits" were wasting time so that the match be drawn. Captain Shakes, who was arrayed in ail his glory, won the toss, and sent Earl Taylor and Duke Clair in to open the innings. The crowd was now surging with excitement, and man}' wordy warfares were taking place. The two "Angels" who open ed the attack were Meadows...
