Cricket. CRICKET NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
Cricket CRICKET NOTES. TBv Onwdokbb.1 Last week cricketers were buBV on the oval getting into form. Of theAdelaides it is unnecessary to say the Giffens haVe been at the nets, and judging by their work they should both be in excellent form for tho coming season. As a well-known critic of the game remarked 'George is in clinking form. As good form as ever I saw him in.' _ Joe Darling is batting first-rate, and judging by his form at practice he is sure to make a bold bid for the next Australian Eleven.. In fact after last year's performance no teani that leaves Australia would be com Elete without him. During the week he has een batting in his usual finestyle, jumpingout and punishing anything well pitched up. Gunn, who did exceedingly well on occasions last year, is in great punishing form this season. The Norwoods have been hard at work, and especially the 'big fellow.' Lyons has been doing wonderful hitting, practice, notwith standing that his hands have, to uso a collo quialism, ...

[?] The Jt.M.S. Austral is timed to reach Larga Bay 'on Tuesday. By this vessel the new Governor 'of South Australia will reach these shores, and preparations have been made to give Sir Fowell and Lady Victoria Buxton a cordial welcome to the colony. The arrange ments will to a great extent follow on the line of the ceremonial observed when on April 11, 1889, Lord Kintore reached Adelaide. On landing at Largs the viceregal . party ma ue conveyed to cue city oy ? special train ; but until the hour of the steamer's arrival is kuown, at all events approxi mately, the exact time at which North terrace will be reached cannot be fixed. There a guard of honor will be drawn up with the Militia Band, and no doubt a large gathering of citizens will assemble to welcome his Excel lency and Lady Victoria Buxton to the city. An escort will conduct them to Government House, and as soon as possible Sir Fowell will drive to the Town Hall, when the swearing-in ceremony will take place. At the steps o...

THE CONDEMNED WOMAN WILLIAMS. Melbourne, October 18. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
THE CONDEMNED WOMAN WILLIAMS. Melbourne. October 18. Emma Williams, sentenced to death for the murder of her little boy, appeared before Mr. Justice Hodges at the Criminal Court to-day when an application was made for a stay of her execution on the ground that the prisoner is quick with child. A long argument took place on the point as to whether the applica- tion must be made before judgment was pro- nounced, but his Honor decided that until the Executive had fixed a time and place of execution the court was bound to hear the ap- plication. He ordered a medical examination, and Drs. Shields, Balls Headley, and Hooper were sworn in, and examined the prisoner in the jury room. They reported to the court that they had examined the woman to-day and &nbsp; on Sunday last, and found that she was not pregnant with quick child. His Honor said he did not propose to make the order, and the matter stood as it did before the application was made. Melbourne, October 2L &nbsp; Th...

Williams states during the quarter & sheep had been imported, and 3,445 were ex ported, while he had inspected 55,430 sheep travelling through the district and at sales.

Lime and sulphur, mixed in equal quantities with water, and administered as a drench, has been tried with satisfactory re sults by Mr. John Cameron, of Wattle Range Station.' With respect to lice and tick the inspector reports that there appears to be an. improvement as compared with last season. On runs, farms, and at sales 4,590 cattle were inspected, 920 of which were milch cows. Owing to the severity of the winter and the dearth of nourishing food many cattle had. suffered from indigestion, debility, and various other complaints arising through priva tion, exposure, &c, and many deaths had oc cur...

STATION MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
STATION MANAGEMENT. Writing in the Australasian Pastoralists' Ecvicw on station management, 'Merino' says :— ' The stock is the first consideration and on a sheep station require more or less attention during the year, according to con ditions of country. Unfortunately now, in some of the older settled districts, worms have become a source of loss and trouble, necessi tating work hitherto unnecessary and making successful management more difficult. Fire is the greatpurifier, andhurningoff portionsof run every yearasfaras practicable, with drainage of all wet low-lying ground, should never be lost sight of, and a plentiful supply of a good sheep lick keep in every paddock. In fairly sound country the last is generally found sufficient to keep sheep in health, the lambs only requir ing drenching. A great fault ou many stations is the shortness of the Bait troughs, 8 or 10 ft. being often deemed sufficient for a paddock with from 1,200 to 1,500 sheep in it. Twenty ft. of troughing per ...

QUARTERLY STOCK REPORTS. THE CENTRAL DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
QUARTERLY SIOGK REPORTS. THE CENTRAL DISTRICT. In his quarterly report on the stock in the central district Mr. R. J. Needham says : — 'The rains during tho past quarter have been so far unsatisfactory. The feed, which got a good start in many parts of the district, has ruu prematurely to seed for want of further moisture, and tho same thing may be said of the crops, which are beginning to fail. To the east and north-east very little rain has fallen, the stock are beginning to suffer, the stock routes are bare of feed, and the outlook for the summer is very gloomy. The lambing appears to have been about an average one, and in the better watered parts of the district the number of lambs dropped is more than the average, but this has been very much discounted ty losses in the drier parts. I regret to state that I cannot report more favorably upon the flocks with regard to tick. Numbers of sheep have been infested with the parasite, and the en forcing of the dipping regulations over su...
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GOVERNORS. FROM 1836 TO 1895. CAPTAIN HINDMARSH TO SIR FOWELL BUXTON. SOME BIOGRAPHICAL REMINISCENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GOVERNORS. FROM' 1836 TO.1S95. CAPTAIN HINDMARSH TO SIR FOWELL BUXTON. SOME BIOGRAPHICAL REMINIS CENCES. Although it is now nearly 59 years since South Australia was proclaimed a British pro vince there are still quite a goodly number of colonists who have lived through the adminis tration of every Governor from Admiral Sir John Hindmarsh to the last and longest term of ofiice of Mr. Way, which was brought to an end by the arrival of his Excellency Sir Thomas Fowell Buxtou on Tuesday morning. There is now in tho House of As semblv a treutleman who came to Adelaide in H.M.S. Buffalo with Captain Hindtuarsh, and who has ever since made his home in South Australia. It is worthy of special mention, indeed, that Sir Powell Buxton's life is only a very few months short of the period during which this colony lias had a place in history, and this fact should have the effect of increas ing the interest which is mutually felt in each other by the people and the Governor. The ...
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. The position in the country is anything bu* satisfactory at the present time, and both agri culturists andpastoralists are beginning to look forward to one of the worst seasons experi enced in the colony for many years past. For weeks a change in the weather has been eagerly looked for, but day after day the sun rises like a coal of fire, and both pasture and wheat crops are gradually drying up. It appears as if the wheat will ripen this year without any rain to fill out the berries, with the result that what grain there is will be a shrivelled sample. Over a good area now farmers have commenced haymaking, and every effort is being made to cut as much as possible before it is too late. With the pastoralist the position is even worse, as all pasture went to seed prematurely — where there was any at all— and even where the prospects were fairly promising there will be absolutely no feed at all before the commence ment of the new year. From the country to the east o...
THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS. Laura, October 24. — The long-continued dry weather is having a disastrous effect on the crops, which are looking anything but promis ing. Should the present dry weather continue some farmers will have no crop at all. The green 'feed also is rapidly drying up, which is a bad lookout for the stock. Redhill, October 24.— The farmers are busy haymaking, a large area being cut, as the market for chaff is firm, and is thought will pay better than wheat. On some farms the hay crop is well grown, and going over two tons to the acre, whilst on others it is short and thin. Had this district been favored with late rains the wheat yield would have been a heavy one, as the crops were looking well a month back. Under present circumstances the result will be considerably affected. Burra, October 25. — On account of the con tinued dry weather, matters are in a very serious state in this district; to the east of Burra one can travel for hundreds of miles without seeing a ...
