Black Rock. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

Black Rock. On Wednesday last the farmers were trea ted to a sample of hot winds but Thursday brought a grand change as it rained for a few hours without ceasing,accompanied by a lot of thunder and lightning. On Friday night we bad another downpour of rain with severe wind and hailstones. Farmers are busy fallowing and are in good heart, as there is wheat in this hundred cutting for green feed and the grass is growing splendidly. Huffier in Vanity Fair, says : Persons with a taste for arithmetic may derive some amusment in solving this problem If a hen and a half lay egg and a half in a day and a half, how many eggs will six hens lay ia seven days?

Selected Poetry. DRIFTED OUT TO SE[?] [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

Selected Poetry. DRIFTED OUT TO SEa Two little ones, grown tiled of play, Xtoamed by the sea one summer day. Watching the great waves come and^jo, Prattling, as children will, you know, Of dolls and marbles, kites and strings, Sometime hinting at graver things. At last they spied, within their reach, An old boat cast upon the beach; Helter-skelter, with merry din, Over its sides they clambered in Hen, vith his tangled, and nut-brown hair, Bess,with her sweet face Pushed and fair. "Rolling in from the briny 'deep. Hearer, nearer the great waves creep, Higher, higher upon the sands, Beaching out with their giant hands, Grasping the boat in boisterous glee, Tossing it up and out to eea. The son went down 'midst clouds of gold, Kight came, with footsteps damp and celd, Day dawned, the hours creep slowly by, Aud now across the summer sky A black cloud stretches far away. A storm comes on with flash and roar, While all the sky is clouded o'er; The great waves rolling from the west Bring n...

City Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

City Gossip. BY A. TALKER. They say the rage for mining shares has not yet subsided and not only " on the corner" but small groups in the streets can be heard by passers-by talking of " Broken Hill," " P< innacles," Lubras." etc. They say Mr. Robb's venture -the opening of a mining ex change in King William-street -is likely to be a success financially. The present ex change is too much out of the way to be a suitable stand. Some say the plague of money makers is better a little out of the leading thoroughfare; and that gentlemen pedestrians will feel more than ever the necessity of thrusting their hands into both breeches pockets to keep possession of that rare com modity-gold! They say the cricket season has come round again, but there is yet no sign of vitality on the field by the lovers of the dex terous willow: there remain several footbell fixtures to dispose of before cricket can be spoken of beyond the arrange ment of preliminaries. They say Dr. Jeffries still rem...

District News. Facts from the Burra. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

District News. Facts from the Bwrra. A Battalion drill in connection with' our V.F. was helli at Balaclava on Thursday last when about 30 of our local defenders attended. The weather ' was most unfavorable for the outing and the drill was almost a failure. A meet ing of the officers present was held to consider the change of uniforms for next year, when the majority was in : favor of scarlet. I don't think this color will please the men, so it is likely to be substituted for some other. I notice according to your columns -and also those of other papers-that yonr people are clamoring after the break of gauge being taken to Peters burg. Some of the Burra people seem to bfj ready to advocate tho extension of the narrow gauge as far as the Burra, as they think that is the only thing I'keJy to cause any excitement as things here are awfully dull. All the talk here is Broken Hill and the share market, almost everyone who has had a little cash to spare having indulged in a few shares, and ...

Selected Poetry. THE BUSHMAN'S LULLABY. Lift me down to the creek bank, Jack, It must be fresher outside: The long hot day is well-nigh done 3 It's a chance If I see another one; I should like to look on the setting sun And the water, cool and wide. We didn't think it wduld be like this Last week, as we rode together ; True mates we're been in this far land For many a year, since Devon's strand We left for these wastes of sun-scorched sand In the blessed English weather. We left, when the leafy lanes were green And the t» ees met overhead, The rippling brooks ran clear and gay, The air was sweet with the scent oi hay, How well I remember the very day And the words my anther said. We have toiled and striven, and fought It out Under the hard blue sky, Where the plains glowed red in tremulous ligit, Where the haunted mirage mocked the sight Of desperate men from morn till night, And the streams had long been dry. Where we dug for gold on the mountain side, Where the ice-fed river ran; ...

City Ciosstp. BY A. TALKER. They say tW Victorians are likely to pay frequent visits to South Australiaas our aristocrats have been entertaining them in a princely fashion; they also say that Mr. E. T. Smith's "long stocking" will be lighter before the close of the Exhibition. # # # They say Saturday's sham.; fight was a creditable display, but if the enemy had appeared many of the Australians, who are now jubilant at their success, would have been shot in the back! * . * They say the "silver fever" still rages, but there is likely to be a re-action before long. . . * They say the break of gauge difficulty has been practically overcome by the invention of Albert Preiss, of Norwood, but his contrivance has not been tested according to promise in consequence of the Engineer-in chief, who was to have given assistance, being himself in I difficulties over the Silverton Railway business. | They say it is very desirable | the invention of Mr. Preissshould be on view at the Exhibition; but...

Correspondence. INSTITUTE MANAGEMENT. TO THE EDITOB. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 September 1887

Correspondence. INSTITUTE MANAGEMENT. TO THE EDITOB. SIB,-In reference to the letter in your last issue signed *. Disgusted'' I beg to point out that the Committee in allowing the Quadrille class the use of 4he Heading Room once a fortnight in the evening merely continued the arrangement whioh existed the previous year; the statement that the class have this privilege simply because n lost of the oomiuittee are dancing men is incorrect, as the Committee comprises eleven members four only of which are danc ing men, the remaining seven being neither dancing men nor connected with the class. It is well to be accurate in all statements-more especially in those upon which interested motives are imputed-other wise the inferences drawn therefrom, as in this case, being mis leading are worse than valueless. While admiting that it may not be under ordinary circumstances desirable to close the Heading Room, even for a couple of hours or so in the evening once a fortnight, yet the committee mu...
