The Kapunda Herald. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1878. THE NORTH-WEST BEND LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 17 September 1878
Wfyt Hapuntia f^eralU, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1878. THE NORTH-WEST BEND LINE. This line, the necessity for which has been so long felt, has now been practically completed by the con tractors, Messrs. Overend & Robb, a Victorian firm of high reputation, whose first work this was in South Australia. As most of our readers are aware the firm has undergone some alteration since the work was undertaken ; the senior partner, Mr. Overend, like many other self-made men died in harness, for though the state of his health did not justify him in doing so he could not be induced to give up the task of personal super vision of the work. Mr. Bobb, how ever, has recently taken a large number of contracts for various important works in this colony, so that he may now to all intents and purposes be regarded as an addition to the list of contractors resident in this colony, who are prepared to j undertake works of the largest character likely to be put into the market even by the present go-a...

Prof. Thomas Oldham has long held a distinguished position in the world of science. In 1843 we find Col. J. E. Portloek, who had charge of the Ordnance Survey of Ireland, -writing of Mr. Oldham as follows, in his Beport on London deny i—' In my own department I have de rived the greatest advantage from the services of my chief assistant, Mr. Thomas Oldham, first in the field, and subsequently during the •preparation of tliis Beport.

BEUTER'S TELEGKRAMS L0ND02T, September 11. Consols are quoted at 94|. The market rate of discount is 4| per cent. At the wool sale to-day 7,600 bales were offered, and the market is rather weaker.

RIVERTON. [From our own Correspondent.] September 12, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 17 September 1878
BIYEBTON. ("From our own Correspondent.] September 12, 1878. Since my last to you we hare been visted by the Rev. Charles Clark, with -whom we arranged so as to secure the delivery of his famous lecture 011 "Westminster Abbey." There was a very select and appreciative audience, and after paying all expenses the Institute benefited to the sum of £4 2s. fid. Active exertions are being made for the successful carrying out of the united Odd fellows' and Foresters' picnic to be held shortly. The Bivertonians generally do' these things properly, so I have no doubt it will be a grand success. The first meeting of the new Committee of the Institute was held last week. Various matters of detail were settled, a motion was carried in favour of obtaining a lot of new books, and arrangements made for hanging the new map of the colony lately presented by the Government. Several new members have lately joined, and a prosperous year is anticipated. The anniversary services in connection with, tlie ...

SHADOWS AND SPIRITS. BY QUIZZER. Time, Midnight. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 17 September 1878
SHADOWS AND SPIRITS. By Quizzee. Time. Midnieht. Behold in your mind's eye a room about the centre of which is a long table, around which are eleven chairs, all empty savd the one occu pied by a man whose silvery locks betoken j that his pilgrimage in this strange eventful world has been a tolerably long one. Where j are they who filled the remainder of the chairs, those whose voices echoed through the hall ? They " came like shadows, and so de- j parted," whither I wot not. The solitary and venerable occupant has fellen into a deep reverie; lie has rested ids head in the palm of hia hand, and his elbow leans lightly oil the table. Shades of boyhood's happy day dreams, chased perchance by those of sober intent, flit and reflit o'er his memory's tablet Happy days I That they "would return. Vain wish. The actions of a life are compressed within small compass when one is in each a mood, and speedily are the doings of later years arrived at—ay, too speedily—and we are face to face with ...

NORTH-WEST BEND. [From our own correspondent.] September, 14. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 17 September 1878
NORTH-WEST BEND. £From our own correspondent.] - September, 14. The Bant of Adelaide opens their branch establishment here on Monday, the 16th inst., under the management of Mr. Burket. The proprietors of Kingsley's great moving mirror of the Rosso-Turkish War gave an entertainment here on Wednesday night, at Symond's Hotel. The entertainment was well patronized, but the room in which the exhi bition took place was altogether to small, nevertheless the audience seemed well satisfied with the evening's amusement, as it was the first thing of the kind ever seen here. Yesterday was a gala day at the Bend, and will long be remembered as the day on which the first train ran through from Kapunda to the Bend. The Eiver is still rising, and is now about sis; feet above the level of last April, so that there is no fear of boats being stuck for want of water. A cargo of wool passed down yesterday. Our telegrph office has been opened at last, so that we are no longer shut out from the rest of ...
GAWLER. [From our own Correspondent.] September 16,1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 17 September 1878
GAWLER. [From our own Correspondent.] September 16,1878, The election day was very tame here—not half as much excitement as the Municipal elections cause. The Committee of the Sun day-Closing ^League were the only ones who seemed to hunt up the electors. The result of the elections is pretty ■well what it 'was thought here. Our cricketers have succeeded in getting a [ piece of the Park Lands for a recreation 1 ground. It is to be hoped that they trill form a Recreation Club, and keep the regular season's sports up as they were done a few years ago. The same ground would be handy for clubs comiug from the North to meet Adelaide teams, which would give them longer time for playing than they would get if they went to Adelaide. The Oriental Exhibition is opened at the Institute Hall, and is well worth a visit. The Musical Union are going to give their first concert on the 24th inst. The programme [ is part sacred and part secular music. They are practising assiduously and deserve a good...

EXCURSION TO THE NORTH-WEST BEND. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 17 September 1878
EXCURSION TO THE NORTH WEST BEND. On Friday a number of gentlemen from Adelaide (including the Chief Secretary, the Secretary of Public Works, &e.) and Ka punda accepted the' invitation of Messrs. Chamier and Barnfield (managers for Messrs. Overend & 3Jobb), to take advantage of the completion of the line on Wednesday, by making an excursion to the Bend. The special train, which consisted of an engine and a saloon and second-class carriage, left Kapunda at about 10.26 and reached Bansborough in j seventeen minutes, and Eudunda, twenty-one miles, in thirty-four minutes. Considering that there was no break behind and the speed at which the train travelled, there was very little motion felt in the carriages. At Eu dunda a stay of about a quarter of an hour was made, and several by permission of Messrs. Overend & Bobb's courteous superintendent took a seat on the engine, so that they might better see the country through which they were passing. Soon after leaving...

CRICKET. THE SEVEN AGES OF CRICKET. All the world s a cricket match, And all the men and children merely players ; They hare their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts. His act being seven ages. At first the youngster, Scouting and fielding in a friendly match; Then the active longstop, -with, his chucking up And sweating morning face, running like mad To stop a trimming cut j and then the mid on, Shying like fury at the batsman's wickets When o'er the crease he steppeth; then a short slip Full of smart catch, and watohing like a thief, Jealous in fielding, sadden andquick in shying, Seeking the bubble reputation Even off tlie batsman's bat; and then the bowler, In fair round-arm, bowling with a break-back on With pace severe, and dreading hard a cut, Full of dodgings and modern instances, And so he bowls his man. The sixth age shifts | Into the lean and hopeful batsman, With pads strapped tight on legs, and gloves I on hand, His thick-set bat -well gr...
