The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, MAY 15, 1868. WAINTED, A LOCAL HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 May 1868

Wfyt Hapuitfca fttraft. FRIDAY, MAT 15, 1868. WAINTED, A LOCAL HOSPITAL. The population m the northern districts of the Province now includes a very large number of persons, residing- either in one or other of the numerous hamlets which already stud our land, or in the compa rative solitude of the agricultural and pastoral districts stretching away to the Far North. Wherever humanity takes up its abode it is still liable to some at least of the many ills to which human flesh is heir, and though our climate i9 by no means an unhealthy one, it is not quite true, as was reported in olden times, that when people wished, for variety's sake, to die, or even to be unwell, that a visit to some other colony was necessary- And besides the diseases arising from natural causes, or rather, perhaps, from the violation of natural laws, a certain per centage of accidents will always occur in proportion to the number of the population. Fortunately the joint percentage of illness and accidents is not...

KADINA. May 12, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 May 1868

KADINA. fFrom oar own Correspondent.] May 12,1868. There was a considerable amount of excite ment displayed here on tlie daj of tlie election. 'The committees of the various candidates were -verr industrious in bringing voters to the poll. On. the evening of the next day a large number of persons assembled outside the telegraph station to hear the result, and great rejoicing was manifested when it was made known that Messrs. Bower aud Hill were the successful candidates. It is to be hoped before another general election takes place that Yorke's Peninsula will be separated from the Electoral District of Fort Adelaide. It must be obvious to every one that the interests of the two places are not at all identical. Vertelli, the rope-walker, and his troupe per formed before a numerous assembly at the "Wombat Hotel on Tuesday last, 5th instant. The Congregational Church anniversary ser vices which were held on the 26th and 29th April were a decided success.

MEXICAN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 May 1868

MEXICAN LIFE. The whole life of a Mexican bears the impress oidolce far niente, He never hastens busily through the streets: his time is never taken up. They rise early; the ladips go in their thick veils to churchy the gentlemen begin their morning ride. After the walk upon the Almeda every one goes home; they generally take a bath; and there are good and cleanly well-arranged public baths in all the streets of the city, as well as bathing-rooms in all the private dwellings. One often sees the Mexican women walking up and down the terraces of the houses to dry their long hair, ?which falls down like a mantle over their shoulders, and reahces almost to their, feet. This daily washing of the hair has one disad vantage-that it has a bad effect upon its fine texture and equality of tint. The tails, as thick as one's arm, and originally black, which adorn the little heads of the Mexicans, assume at last a reddish hue. Time is dawdled away over the completion of the toilet; if there are ...

CORRESPONDENCE. TESTIMONIALS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 May 1868

UORRES P(JNDENCE. TESTIMONIALS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-As it seems to be impossible in these lively times to allow any distinguished townsman to leave our district without a few friends wishing to present him with " a slight token of their esteem," do you not think it would be advisable that those parties who take an active part in collecting the needful, and otherwise managing these affairs, should present some sort of a balance-sheet to the subscribers, so that they might know what has been done with the money collected. I refer more particularly to a recent case, in which I believe a large sum of money was col lected. No doubt the aflair was managed to the satisfaction of the one or two; but then those gentlemen were not backward in asking the pub lic for subscriptions, and they should not have been too " bashful " to place some statement be fore those subscribers, more especially when the presentation was such a select affair. I don't for a moment insinuate that the funds have been ...

WALLAROO. May 7, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 May 1868

WALLAROO. {"From a Correspondent J May 7,1868. . Mora. Vertelli made one of his most successful Mcensiora last evening, at the jetty. At the liour named for the performance there was only about eighty persons present; by half-past eight, there must hare been several hundred-including a large number of ladies and children. The rope along which Vertelli bad to walk, had been securely stretched from the end of the jetty, to a portion of the other part of the angle, distance about 400 feet, and a considerable height from the water. Vertelli with easy confidence, walked with even step to the music of the Kadina, Sand, after which he returned, walking backwards; and after a short pause, he carried a youth on his back the whole distance, amid blue fires, and gave great satisfaction. One fourth of the receipts was given to our Mechanics Institute. I may also state that one of the troupe performed on the trapeze on a yard-arm of the Summer Cloud, .hip.

CITY CORRESPONDENCE. Adelaide, May 14, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 15 May 1868

CITY CORRESPONDENCE. [From our own Correspondent.! Adelaide, May 14, 1868. The choice of East Torrens lias been paving the penalty of successful talent. One afternoon last week Mr. Alford, of Grlynde, who during the recent contest in East Torrens acted as Man Friday to Mr. Fiuniss, entered a sporting protest against the winner. It was not a very formal proceeding, but that only gave it more notoriety. Mr. Altord had a suspicion-amply warranted by public opinion-that the Protectionist running bad not been square towards the close. Ifot being a wordy man he did not bring the matter before the Returning Officer at the declaration of the poll, but kept a look out for Daniel among the pubs. On Thursday afternoon they met in the Grlobe, when Mr. Alford began to express npt very flattering opinions of Daniel's plumpers, who had carried the election for him. Daniel gave the retort courteous, which Alford retorted. Then came the lie direct, in exchange for wliich Daniel received something ha...

Hollonays Pills.-Prevenfiblfe Diseases --Many are the maladies which silently work their way into the human system through miasma, noxious vapours, and deteriorated air, which could all be dispossessed by a- few doses of. these admirable Pills. The vitiated gases enter the lungs as we breath, and there contaminate the blood, which will convey the poisonous particles throughout the body, unless some purifier, such as these Pills, be taken to cleanse it. Bolloway's Pills expel all harmful matters from the circulation, and cleanse the solids, likewise, from all treacherous impurities. Is not the whole body formed from the blood, and the blood only ? How necessary, then, does it become to all who value health to employ occasionally some means of purification. A.dwt. A WAJllilKti.

HUNTING THE DEVIL-FISH: Suddenly his broad black back was lifted above the water directly before our bow. " Forward I" The oarsmen bend to the stroke, but before we could .gain our distance his tail flies up, and he is plunging downward for hie depths. I could not resist-I pitched my harpoon from the distance of full thirty feet. It went whizzing through the air, and cleaved the water just beneath the spot where the fish had disappeared. .My companions in our consort (who had now: approached within fifty yards) observed the staff quiver for a second before it disappeared beneath the surface of the water. This was unobserved by myself, aud I was drawing in my line to prepare for a new throw, when ho I the line stopped short! " Is it possible! I have Mm-the devil-fish is struck !'?

The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, MAY 22, 1868. MUNICIPAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 22 May 1868

Cije Hxaputt&a ^ecalD. FRIDAY, MAY 22, 1868. MUNICIPAL PROGRESS. Corporations are doubtless most useful bodies; but as the work which falls to the lot of Municipal Corporations, or rather Councils, usually devolves on persons un accustomed to those duties, it frequently happens that the Municipal Councils serve a beneficial end by no means contemplated in their establishment-namely, as afford ing a most convenient object to the bur gesses for the exercise of that proverbial privilege of Britishers-grumbling. Such has been the ease with regard to our own Town Council. Its progress has been made amidst one continued succession of growls. Many of the residents smiled anything but kindly on its birth, and every little error of judgment or other mishap attendant on its development was exulted over, and held forth as evidence of the evil results of Municipal self-government. However, the Corporation has now been in existence close on three years, and the results of that existence ...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE LATE TESTIMONIAL. TO TEE EDITOR. Sir-Referring to a letter in your last week's issue, and your editorial note thereto, if you, Mr. Editor, or "Ten and Sixpence," or any other subscriber to the Browne Testimonial Fund wish to see a statement of the accounts, you can do so on making application to the Treasurer. Bad information been the object your corres pondent sought, doubtless he would have adopted some such course in the first instance, instead of making covert reflections on the gentlemen who managed the affair. If " Ten and Sixpence" had the manliness to append his name to his stupid insinuations I might possibly deem it worth while to answer them; but I decline taking any further notice of the production of an anonymous scribbler. I am, &c., WM. LISTON, Hon. Treasurer.

SKILLOGOLEE CREEK. May 18, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 22 May 1868

SKILLOGOLEE CREEK. [From our own Correspondent.]] May 18,1868. Many went to rest last night frith, the dawning hope of rain, in their hearts; and awoke this mor ning to find that hope gratified-though only slightly. Bat still as it has rained once again, though the quantify fallen is, up to the present, bnt small, we have every reason to anticipate, from external appearances, a copious supply to come. The farmers, I need scarcely add, are very thankful for the change. In reference to the good road question, I noticed a paragraph in a weekly colonial paper last week headed, "Apian for preserving, &c., bush main roads," and which, if carried out, would certainly save a lot of useless discussion. It was. "to keep the rain off the roads by means of a galvanized iron roofi to be supported on iron pillars twelve feet high." Now, this would be first rate for travellers, but drivers of vehicles would have to be cautious not to take too many nobblers in case of running against the ir...

THE GRUMBLING SUBSCRIBES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 22 May 1868

THE GRUMBLING SUBSCRIBES. TO THE EDITOB. Sir-Your correspondent, " Ten and Sixpence," alludes, I presume, to the recent testimonial to Mr. Browne. The very indifferent style of his letter, which is defective and ungrammatical, the untruthful ness of his statements, and the malicious imperti nence of his inuendoes, lead me to suppose that he is the victim of some hypochondriacal malady. In deed it is a very fortunate circumstance that" Ten and Sixpence" was not present to mar the very pleasant half-hour we spent when saying " good bye" to Mr. Browne. The subscriptions were received only from those who wished to be enumerated amongst the per sonal friends and admirers of our late Magistrate, and therefore the " balance-sheet" is po more the business of the general public than- is my bank pass-book. _ If your correspondent is not too " bashful," an application to the worthy gentleman (Mr. Liston) who lias the list of subscribers will tend to remove from your correspondent's mind any pr...
