BASSBALL. Kobwood CO. v. SuEvar Department B.C, After the conclusion of the cricket matsh between the Norwoods and Hiadmsrah the former played a game of baseball with the Survey Club on the south end of the Adelaide Oval. Great'interest -was taken in the match, and during tbe afternoon the thousand spectators became quite enthusiastic. The SiorwcodB included Simpson, of the AU American team, who is at present on a visit to Adelaide. His presence, of course, was of great assistance to them, especially in coaching the men, who in most instances had not much idea of the rules of the game. The Surveys, on the other hand, have played several matches, but notwithstanding their ad vantage the eastern suburban team won in tb^ easiest manner foy 34 cons to 4. The fi^dine of tbe Surveys was wretched, whilst on the other hand the Ncrsreada ihlded »s though ttf-y had been brought up to the game.

LAWN TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
JCAWJSf TENNIS. The tournament held on the- oval on Satur day may be regarded in every way as satisfac tory, with the exception of one circumstance, which it was impossible to foresee. Illness or some other cause prevented three of the best players 'competing, and thus made the first round of the doubles a complete fiasco, only two Bets out of six being played. These sate, although taking a longer time than was ex pected, no hitch occurred. Three rounds were played, Messrs. Kaines and Beevor (Z ) pass ing through all the rounds without a defeat have to mee. Messrs. Hambidge (Z.), who scored wine in the first two rounds, and drew a bye- in the third rousd in the final for the championship. The set batoeen Alexander and Webb (B) and O'Halloran and Oldham (N.A.) was splendidly con tested, and attracted a great deal of atten tion from the onlookers — in fact too much so, as the playing: reserve was encroached on several times. The North Adelaides went off at a great pace, and maintained...
GREYHOUNDS AND RACE HORSES. Melbourne, March 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
GREYHOUNDS AND RACE HORSES. [By Telegraph.1 Melbourne, March S. A. rather remarkable opportunity to compare the breeding of thoroughbred horses aud of greyhounds in a lucrative aspect of the matter was afforded in the city today, whenalmoBt simultaneously Mr, John Munday held a sale of greyhounds bred by Mr. W. B, RounBeveU, of Adelaide, and Messrs, Campbell & Sons dispoued of Mr. W. Pearson's annual draft of thoroughbred horses from his well-known Eilmany Park stud. Twelve greyhound puppies realised 611 guineas, or an average of over 60 guineas, one being eold for 135 guineas and another for 113. Whilst 28 horses which were sold brought 558 guineas, averaging not quite 20 guineas, the highest price bid being 3G guineas. It would seem that in consequence of the liberally en dowed stakes to be run for during the ap proaching season, especially at the Moonee Valley plumpton, the sport of the leash is shortly to experience a boom in real earnest. The Minister of Edncation (the ...

At the present time the offices from which railway stores are issued are situated at Sydney, Goulburn, Bathurat. and New castle, but from the end of the present month some of the branch stores will be dispensed with. This will necessitate a reduction in the staff by which it is ex pected that a saving of some £5,000 per annum will be made. At the Water Police Court to-day, Wyndham Samuel Johnson, late assistant manager of the Neir South Wales AsBurance Corporation, was committed for trial for obtaining several sums of money from the company by false pretences. The object of the company was to assure employers and employes against accident, and the modus operandi of the accused was- to fill oat accident forms in the names of fictitious persons alleged to have been treated by this or that doctor.

FLOGGING IN SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
FLOGGING IN SCHOOLS. The question of corf oral punishment in schools has been brought to the front in England by a discussion in the Times, in which many prominent persons have tak«n part. The correspondence origi nated in a protest addressed to that journal by the Earl of Meath' against the abolition, under a comparatively recent regulation, of flogging In district, indus trial, and reformatory schools for girls. The protest evoked a chorus of sym pathy from numerous correspon dents. The discussion thns began was carried further, until it included within its rarge the whole subject of school dis cipline. School managers, and Bchool teachers whose long experience qualified them to form a judgment, pronounced with one voice in favor of the rod as an in dispensable instrument in the maintenance of authority. Of the unanimity of opinion which prevails on that point the London School Board had some evidence a few months sgo, when more than 4,003 assis tent teachers clamored, to be inves...

COLONIAL PROGRESS IN 1887. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
COLONIAL PROGRESS IN 183?. It is always instructive to look back] a year or two at the life-history of the colonies as exhibited in the concise and well arraDged tables which the Govern ment Statist of Victoria sends farth annually. Although it may not be quite true that figures can prove anything, they can certainly prove a great deal as co the steps which a young country is taking, whether in a forward or a backward direc tion. The year 1887 was one of depres sion In South Australia ; and on the very threshold of enquiry we Eee the effects of the despondent condition into which the country had then fallen, and from which it ia now £hsppiiy emerging. Whatever ? may be the case with old and thickly peopled lands, population] means life, progress and prosperity to a young country. The number of persons who entered South Australia daring 1887 was 35,4G8. but those who left ua exceeded this total by 2,199, a loss quite unprece dented in the history of the colony, and fortunately not li...
Original Articles. THE FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
©rigittal Jtrtide*. THE FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. The p»BfiiEg of the Land Act of 18S8 Ins removed from the sphere of debate many political questions beating particularly oa the settlement Gf the land which formed year after year stock subjects for dis cofifiion at meetings of the Farmers' Asso ciation. It La gratifying to fiad that the reforms introduced by the new Act are generally apgrtciated fay the agricultural community. The resolution agreed to at the recent meetings of the association, thanking the Laud Commission for their valuable Jabora, was a ?well-merited a- knowledgment of services that hare borne gocd fruit. The abolition of the suction principle, of the absurd and harassing restrictions with re gard to cultivation and residence, of the old delusion that £1 per acre ia the minimum value of country lands, and the introduction of a system of classification l-y local boards, with provisions enabling selectorB to come under the new Act on advantageous terms, Involve changes o...
THE STOCK REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
THE STOCK REPORT. The report of the Chief Inapecbor of Stock, which appears in Tnursday's Gazette, shows that the flocks and herds of tbe colony are in a fairly-satisfactory condition. During the past year there were heavy losses of sheep from the severe drought, but the flocks re mained entirely free from any in fectious or contagions disease. It Is satisfactory to learn that scab has been almost completely eradicated In _ Lusiraiia. xa is once-areaaea scourge ot the squatter no longer exists in any of the colonies excepting Western Australia and New Zealand. There every effort is being made to extirpate the last traces of the disease, and Mr. Valentine Isof opinion that in another year scab will be only a memory in Australasia. The report as regards cattle is not quite so cheering. It is trne that cases of pleuro pneumonia have been less numerous than in previous seasons. In local herds outbreaks of the disease were comparatively lew and not of a particularly serious character, wh...
