Boring for Water. (Continued from our last) [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 23 May 1879

Boring- for Water. f Continued from our last) The most primitive system of boring is (hit known as the Chinese system. The boring is done by meanB of a rope, instead of bore rods, to the end of which the boring tools are attached. Tbe boring or cutting tools having no superincumbent weight of iron rods to give the necessary impact, they are made much heavier than the tools used under a system of boring by means of wooden or iron rcds. The cutting chisel is attached to the end of a rope and eucssed in a short length of tube to assist in keeping the hole straight and plumb ; tbe blow of the c'lisel is given by a simple lever or by what is termed a spring pole, the necessary partial rotation of the tool is effected by the twisting and untwisting of the rope, bo that the tool does Yiot always strike in tbe same* place ; after a given quantity of rock has been bored, the chisel is withdrawn and a short, piece of fabe with a valve new its lower end, and termed a shell or sand pump, is lot...

The Distress in Cornwall. (We extract the following from the Watchman.) [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 23 May 1879

The Distress in Cornwall. (We extract the following from the Watchman) JJeak silts. — irom seven to ten miles to the west of Truro lie tbe villages of Carharrack Scorrier, and St. Day — all comprised in tbe parish of Gcrennap, celebrated for the spacious natural amphitheatre in which Wesley often proclaimed tbe word of life lo listening multitudes. On Thursday last business led me to this neighborhood in company with two of my circuit friends. Passing through the three or four miles of wooland ccenery which embelts this little city, we emerged into an exclusively mining district, marked by all tbe distinctive features so familiar to travellers in the west Heathery bills, dotted with bumble cottages, with here and there a better class house and whitewashed Wesleyan Chapel; 'adilied burrows' — that is, gigantic mounds of grey and brown d5iris from the pits, crowned with massive mining plan's — here was the scene which everywhere outspread the view. Now, mark this striking fact — twent...

CHAPTER XIX. A BSSOX.TE. He slept but little that night, and earily tbe next morning he was up and out and away by himself— paying but little heed to the rushing -lue seas, and the white gulls, and the sunshine touching' tbe far sands on the shores of Ions. He was in a fever of unrest. He knew not what to make of that letter ; it might mean any thing or nothing. Alternations of wild hopes and cold despair succeeded (each other. Surely it was unusual for a girl so to rereal her innermost confidences to any one whom she considered a stranger ? To him clone had she told this story of her private troubles. Was it not in effect asking for a sympathy which she could not hope for from any other t Was it not establishing a certain secret between themP Her own father did not know. Ser sister was too young to be told. Friends like Mrs.. Boss could not understand why this young and beautiful actress, the favorite of the public, could be dissatisfied with her lot.

Constitutional Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 23 May 1879

Constitutional Reform. As Parliament is so sLortly to resume its sittings we suppose that we shall soon hear of some scheme to be proposed for the reform of the Upper House. It is true that the very great and wide spread interest that has attached to the mission of Mr. Berry and his colleague to England has had the effect of drawing off attention from our own case, and putting us in the more easy position of disinterested though not careless on-lookers. The difficulties faced in Victoria have been, it is true, much more serious than any we have had here but only because they were the outcome of a more fully developed feeling and as we have already on two occasions had the question forced pro minently on -our notice, and each time with greater intensity, so the next time it will have gathered such strength that it may be very difficult to overcome it without serious loss to the community in many ways. It is therefore desirable steps should bs taken to prevent the possibility of harm....
