POETRY, i LOVE. Unless you can think, -when the song is done, No other is sweet in the rhythm: "Unless you can feel, \rtien left by one, That all men else go frith liim : Unless you can know, -when upraised by liis breath, That your beauty itself wants proving ; Unless yon can swear-" for life, for death'' Oh, fear to call it loving! Unless yon can muse in. a crowd all day, On the absent face that fixed you; Unless you can love all the angels may, . 'Withthe breath of heaven betwixt you; Unless you can dream that his faith is fast, Through behooving and unbehooYiag; Unless you can die when the dream is past Oh. never call it loving! -Mrs. Browning.

Port Au^osta and tbe Centralization Question. We extract the following from the letter of the Port Augusta correspondent to the Areas Express of Saturday last: I have to chronicle another "storm in the Municipal teapot,"-a storm which completely outvied all previous storms, and resulted is the resignation of the Mayor. For some time past there have been unmistakeable signs of friction and we havS been treated to occasional ebullition8 of temper, but on Thursday even ing 'aat the grand climax was reached. It is difficult to say who is primarily to blame in the matter, and as usual in auch cases, there is a diversity of opinion on the point.

RABBIT DRIVES. THE SPORT OF THE FRESNO FARMERS. TICKLING THE PALATE OF THE SWINE WITH COTTONTAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 1 June 1888

RABBIT DRIVES. THE SPOET OF THE FBESNO FAHHEBS. TICKLING THE PAT. ATE OF THE SWINE WITH COTTONTAILS. * At "what is known as Wildflower Colony in Frasno county, twenty- miles south-west from the city of Fresno, is where the 10,000 rabbit drive took place last Friday,' remarked Thomas Hopper to a Chronicle reporter last evening. ' Why, sir, you don't understand the damage these pests are to the farmers in Kern and Fresno counties. If they were not killed off in this manner every little while by the farmers, it would require more to feed them than it does to keep the farmer's stock in provisions. They ruin the fields of alfalfa and nip off our early grain. Yes, I've heard something of Chicago canneries wanting rabbit meat to put up, but their prices, as I understand them, wouldn't pay California freight rates. How is this rabbit-drive busi ness done? Well, hundreds of our people assemble, according to agreement, with bundles of fine wire fencing, the meshes being about as large as a he...

ORIGINAL STORY. For Lack of Gold. Br M. JE>. StsoroNS CHAPTER, XV--SUNSHESE AND RAIN. Margery a woke next morning with the sun shine of a bright Sunday morning all around her; an indescribable feeling of strangeness and unreality lay like a heavy weight on her spirits, forbidding them to rise, and this was not dispelled until she raised her eyes from her prayer-book, and saw Horace Castletone in the grim old pew allotted to strangers. It -was the first time she had seen him there, and was surprised that he should choose to walk , three miles when there was a church so near tie -village at which he had said he was stay ing. The heavy feeling passed away, like clouds I before sunshine, and the quiet, combined with I the knowledge of his j;refeuec, restored Mar- i gery to herself. j Yesterday's happy morning seemed far away, but her fears of the evening rose np before her many times; so prone are we to forget happiness and remember only pain. Margery was not alone-her brothers were ...

CBAPXEE V.-A CLTJSTEE OF FOEGEI-IFE-IROTS. June, bright, rose-leaden Jane, had come, with its hands full of flowers and singing birds.

One afternoon when Mora who was Buffer ing from some -slight indisposition, told him to leave her and walk, he did so, secretly nothing loth, but with complaints enough to arouse even her tardy smile. ' My dear Horace,' she said pettishly, ' one would think you meant all this. How deceptive you are ! what an actor the world has lost! you quite lose your identity when you speak and look as you have just done.' Horace leit the room and its languid occu pant, and walked towards the fields which lay between the Courfcand Margery's home. flora bad bidden him go, and there was o...

FARM AND GARDEN. Budding and Crafting. A FEW PRACTICAL HINTS UPON THESE IMPORTANT SUBJECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 1 June 1888

FARM AND GARDEN. Budding and Crafting. A FEW PBACTICAL HINTS UPON THESE HI POBTANT SUBJECTS. Having been requested to give an opinion on. the subject of ' Stocks, Grafting, and Pruning,' I accede with pleasure, though having but a few moments of leisure at my command. We are all pupils in the great school of horticulture, whose surpassing possibilities few can grasp in imagination. And some of us may have observed some process of nature which others may not have the opportunity to see, and by comparing notes may be of great benefit to one another, for no observing person can engage in the enticing and always interesting art without learning something of the marvellous electro-photo-chemieal processes by which earth, air, water and sunshine are changed to luscious, red-cheeked peaches, purple grapes, or, more wonderful still, to the beautiful ferns, soft shadings, elegant pencillings, and captivating perfumes of flowers. All there is on earth to-day, whether political, social, educat...

BURRA, May 29. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 1 June 1888

BURBA, May 29. The Queen's Birthday -was a* close holiday here, and a meagre get up of sports was attempted. Horse racing" was tried, but proved a miserable failure, nothing but a lot of old screws being on the ground to run. * In.'the afternoon a football match (saye the markj was played on the BurraOval between a combination from Riverton and a team of Burra -boys the visitors were worse than a lot of American Indians let loose, hence foot" ball proper was at a discount, die ball was placed between .the goal poasts twice during the afternoon's scramble, by the home team, but the manner in which the game was murdered was something beyond description. Mining matters are quiet here just now, elaborate reports being played out, showing that " bombast".and "blow" will not last, there is very little talk about the ventures in this district. Since my last a man named Allaway has been murdered by that Monster Alcohol at the Hanson Hotel, Farrels.Flat. The unfortunate who had been drinking...

A PUBLIC NUlSArNCE. TO THE EDITOR, Sik,-Near a police station in any town is ! not a desirable place of residence, bat few, I venture to say, have better grounds for com plaint than those who are unfortunate enough to have their homes situated in the vicinity of thePetersburg lock-up-not that it is more often frequented with rowdies than others, but because the local constable seems desir ious of establishing a menagerie in our midst. For the past week the people at that end of the town jhave had their daily quiet as well as midnight hours of repose disturbed by the piteous waiting of a member of the canine species -who though very small has well de veloped lungs, though, true, they seem gradually losing their strength from the con tinual strain upon them. Day by day a pitying public has noticed these signs of re laxing vigor and night by night the wakeful neighbours have vowed vengeajiee on. the dis turber of their rest. Why should these things be ? Even if the animal had imbibed t...
