WELCOME RAINS. North and North-East Greatly Benefited. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 16 April 1920

WELCOME RAINS. North and North-East Greatly Benefited. Referring to the splendid rains ex perienced last week end. one of our daily contemporaries remarks that it cannot he said that concern has been created by the absencc of autumn r4:iins in the pastoral and agricultural areas, although the breaking of the season has been eagerly awaited. On the outback stations in the saltbush territory ranged on both sides of the border of South Au-tralia and New South Wales the conditions are so bad that they could hardly be worse. The farming areas of this Slate, especi ally in the north, needed rain, but an optimistic feeling prevailed that the downpours would come, on the prin ciple that it is a long lane that has no arningr. .On- Monday. morning^'jtheH ail way department and the\pastor.al :pnipanies received - telegr^n^gwhjch;/ ndicated that ^splendid rainshad bci birred in the distant north and in thev lear northern districts.- Mr, ey,- who is filling the pUceofihfr State weather .office (...

The Times Friday, 16th April, 1920. LOCAL TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 16 April 1920

Eriday, 16th April, 1920. LOCAL TOPICS. Few weeks come and go without some National calamity in one shape or ano ther, and last week proved no excep tion to the rule, for during that period came the news of the passing of the State's head (The Hon. A. H. Peake). One's mind goes back to the middle 'nineties, and the passing of the Hon Tom Price, Premier of S.'A.._ .Honest Tom's demise did not however, come as a shock to the general public, for his failing was discernible to the public eye, and like our late Premier, he .practically died in harness.: Twenty four hours before the arrival of the dailies with the news, the yellow sheet on our' window, with its saddening news, caused a good deal of street con versation, and the chief question pat was, "What was up with him. I never- knew he was ill at all." And.. it ~ seems to have been even so in the rfty, and even in the :. Halls of the Assembly. The dead statesman's face ever bore the quali ties of rugged, strength and determina tion, ...

A. very good sug-v -geition and one; we think,that will be readily adopted.
