The Kapunda Herlad. FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1878. AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 23 August 1878

Wijt Haptmija ^eralti. I FBIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1878. AGKRICULTTJEAL SOCIETY SHOWS. There are some few persons in our midst who fail to see that the annual gatherings in connection -with our -various Agricultural Societies are of any practical value. They contend that though the ostensible aim of such exhibitions may be to encourage our young fanners to become first-class ploughmen, and to be willing to further improve their skill by testing it against that of all comers, as a matter of fact these meetings do not answer that purpose, but serve simply to benefit the publican who has a booth on the ground or at whose house the customary dinner is held. Fortunately those who take this gloomy view of the ease are in the minority; ana -rill more fortunately, the position taken by them is one which a little reflection will show to be groundless. Take first o£ all their chief objection—that the publican is the chief gainer by these gather ings. Ill the majority of cases we believe the much-abu...

MEETING AT KOONUNGA. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 23 August 1878

MEETING AT KOONUXGA. A well-attended meeting was held at the District Council Chamber, 011 Monday after noon, to take into consideration the necessity of forming a deputation to wait on the Minis try, with a view of pointing out to some ex tent the devastation already caused by the rabbits, and to urge that the proposed Com pulsory Destruction Rabbit Bill be passed during the present session of Parliament. Mr. P. Mahoney -was voted to the chair, and read the advertisement convening the meeting. He hoped all the speakers would have an impartial hearing, and that only the business of the meeting would be brought forward. So far he had not been troubled with rabbits, and therefore he would leave those present who had been troubled to speak, as they could do so with more effect. Mr. Flavel, J.P., proposed the first resolution as follows That this meeting is unanimous in condemning the action of the members of the Upper House who verted against the passing of the Bill for the compulsory ...

KAPUNDA AND LIGHT AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S PLOUGHING MATCH AND SHOW OF STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 23 August 1878

KAPTODA AND LIGHT AGRI CULTURAL SOCIETY'S PLOUGHING MATCH AND SHOW OF STOCK. This Society, of which Mr. H. T. Morris, J.P., lis President, held its annual show of stock and ploughing match on Wednesday last in a paddock near Allen's Creek kindly lent for the purpose by Mr. James White, M.P. The day was beautifully fine—all that could be desired for an occasion of this kind, and the site chosen was very suitable; but the stock being exhibited in a separate pad dock from that in whieh the ploughing took place was a great mistake, and should be avoided in the future. It is with regret we hare to record the fact that the show was a comparative failure, an unaccountable apathy being displayed by many of our farmers in the proceedings of the Society—at least this is almost the only explanation we can offer for the paucity of exhibits in a district like the Light, which possesses unqualified facili ties for rendering such a show a perfect success. At the same time many attribute the want o...

NOBTH-WEST BEND. ["From our own Correspondent.] August 18, 1878. We don t usually hear of snake stories at this season of the year, when their snakeships are taking their winter snooze and aro seldom disturbed. However, a few days ago a little girl went to the wood heap to get a few pieces of wood to put on the fire, and on looking into a hollow log, the girl saw what she sup posed to be a Jarge lizard. A few men having their attention called to the place soon pulled out of the log a snake 5 feet 10 inches in length, rather a formidable customer to have within a few feet of a tent where a family of children were. I need scarcely add the snake was soon dispatched. The works in connection with the large fellmongery establishment of Messrs. McLean and Baldock is making good progress. A very large wool-drying platform is nearly finished, alight jetty is being erected, also wool-press, &c. The laying of the permanent way as far as originally intended on this seetion is complete, ...

TT AMXEY BEEDGrE], ("From" our own Correspondent.] August 23. The original township of Hamley Bridge puffered under two bad Ls, viz., it was limited p,nd low; the last, a very objectionable epithet, is well understood bj many at Kiyerfcon, Stock port, daddleworth and other low-lying town ships since last year's floods. This being the case Messrs. Duffield& Co. laid out a paddock on the rising ground adjoining the station on the east side, as die township of Duffield, and Mr, J. C. Wilkinson held a sale of the allotments, on Tuesday last, when a goodly number of buyers assembled, and the bidding was very spirited. Thirty allotments were sold at good prices, reaching as high as £32 for a small one Jess than a quarter of an acre ; so judging from that there is every prospect of our population greatly increasing before long. We have recently had some additions to the business people of the township in a saddler, another store, and a carpenter. The contractor for the Balaklava li...

WIRIIABAR/L [[From our own Correspondent.]] August 21. After all that rain, diy -weather has set in to gucli an extent that some of our farmers have commenced to cry out for more rain. In consequence of the sudden change from ex treme wet to dry and warm weather the ground has become very hard and 6 tiff, and several of our fanners have in consequence had to give up breaking up virgin soil. Our early wheat looks very good, but the late sown ifi very backward, as also is the grass in the paddocks, and although it is nice and green 6till it is very short. About thirty miles further north there is an abundance of feed, and some of the early sown wheat in the Hun dred of Pichi Bichi is already out in ear and in full bloom. I fear it is rather too early. Last Saturday a meeting was held in the Wirrabara Hotel for the purpose of getting the propqsed road through the Back Creek to Port Germein opened as soon as possible, and a deputation was appointed to wait on the Commissioner of Public ...
