Correspondence. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents.—ED.] THE LATE CATHOLIC SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

Correspondence. Wc do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents.-KD.] THE LATE CATHOLIC SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT. TO THE EDITOR. j SIR,-I'm a little chap who tofskpart & the entertainment given by the children of St. Anacletus* School, in the Institute, on 25th June, and as I have not yet troubled yon with any correspondence, I thought that yon would kindly print a letter irom a little " whining school boy" about the very unfair taannerin which you "criticised and referred to our school entertainment. You had to admit " that there was a very large audience." Now that was quite true, but, as 1 was saying to my schoolmates, Johnny Sheridan, Bertie Hill, Bolie Clarke, and Bertie Brady, it was very strange the paper did not say anything about our grand concert, except the following-** Unfortunately a very undesirable element was largely represented, a fact which was incessantly evinced by stamping, whistling, and the many other idiotic and unpleasant noises which he...

LITTLE FOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

LITTLE FOLK. A child of'seven or ^ eight said that when, the Bible speaks of ' children's ^children' it must mean dolls. Sunday "was a rainy day and Nora's activity had been much restrained by staying Indoors without ^ any playmates. Toward twilight she stood by the window and, ' heaving a sigh, said to her mother: '.God has a mighty long day, jmudder.'--A7": Y. World. A Sixteenth-street lady was calling on a K-street lady the other day, and the small daughter of the house kept walking aroujjd her an^Jstudyiiig her'head|intentlv.

VARIETIES. People Have Headaches. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

VARIETIES. "."AT people Have Headaches. Proi bly one of the most common head aches, .not the most common, is that called nervo- The class of people who are most , snbjec to it are certainly not yonr outdoor workeio. If ever my old friend the gardener had had a headache it would not have been, one of this description. Nor does Darby, the ploughman, nor Jarvey, the bushman, nor Greatfoot, the gauger, suffer from nervous headache, nor anyone else who leads an out door life, or who takes plenty of exercise in. the open air. But poor Mittie, who slaves away her days in a stuffy draper's shop, aftid Jeannie, in her lonesome attic, bending over her white seam-stitch, stitch-till far into the night, and thousands of others of the indoor working-class are martyrs to this form, of headache. Are they alone in their misery ? No ; for my Lady Bonhomme, -who comes to have her ball room dress fitted on, has often a fellow feeling with Jeannie and Mattie. Her, however, we cannot aff ord to pity qui...

Disastrous Fire at Orroroo. TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF MR CREEPER'S STORE AND ADJOINING PREMISES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 July 1888

Disastrous Fire Orroroo. TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF MB CKEEFEB'S j STORE AND ADJOINING PREMISES. Our Orroroo correspondent writes as follows I regret haying to report the entire destruction by fire of Mr J Creeper's general store, and two other adjoining shops which were fortunately standing empty at the time. From what I can gather the fire started, or was first seen at about 2 30 this morning-Wednesday, 18th inat. Mr Graham, one of the mill bands who lives not very far from the property informs nie that he was awake at that time and his attention was ar rested by an unusual sound as of cracking timbers, and on arising and going out side he observed the five just bursting out from under the parapet of the building. He immediately dressed and ran down to the mill and turned on the whistle, after which he ran to the Police station, and aroused the officer,Corporal Dean. In the meantime the continuous blow of the whistle had attracted attention and alarms were sounded by the ringing of bell...

Yongala Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 July 1888

fongala Jottings. (BY A CORBSSPONDENT.) I urgently entreat those before whose visual organs my "jottings" happen to fall, to be good enough not to devote the principal portion of their sane moments (somebody avers that all men are either casually or permanently mad) to the manufacture of personalities from my generalities. Should mental mean dering lead me to innocently refer to some mythical mortal, owning a bald head and a lurid excrescence upon the left extension of his nasal organ, and there, by chance, be one near similarly arrayed, I implore that individual to refrain from employing sleuth hounds, or thoughts of the procuration of a canal and a man-o-war, with a view to my ear^ departure "to the land o' the leal." Rural reader, should my maternal slipper fit a certain portion of yonr anatomy, please don't swear that it was made to measure. Bain has fallen; the pluviometer de claring 610 points.

Football. PETERSBURG V. JAMESTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 July 1888

Football. PETERSBURG V. JAMESTOWIC, The Jamestown Review has the following: The above match was played on Jamestown town Oval, on the 6th inst in the presence of a goodlv number of spectators. Play was arranged to start at 2.30. but at that time only six of the home team were on the ground. This, to say the least of it, is very bad taste to the opposing team, who were all on the ground. However, the absentees rolled down, and the Captains tossed for choice of poals, when Mr HumphriB with his usual luck had to kick off against a breeze. The Jamestown Club were minus the services of Messrs Turner and Naiemith which made a great difference in the playing strength of the team. The least said about the game the better foT all concerned, the display of foot ball being very poor, especially on the Peters burg side, No goals were kicked on either *ide, the result being Petersburg 4 behinds, Jamestown 3 behinds. For Petersburg Scrutton played undoubtedly the best game and had he received mor...

Rifle Company for Petersburg. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 July 1888

Rifle Company for Petersburg. An adjourned meeting called to consider the matter of the formation of a Rifle Company in Petersburg, was held in the Institute Hall on Monday evening last. The chair was taken by Mr, W. Threadgeld, J.P. (Mayor of Peters burg), who in a few well chosen words expressed himself as thoroughly in sympathy with the object of the meet ing- The idea of being prepared to defend then hearths and homes was a very laudable one, whilst the drill and discipline could not fail to be bene ficial-especially to the younger mem bers. With the co-operation of the surrounding districts he saw no reason why a first-class company should not be formed in Petersburg. Mr. R. M. Osborne then proposed " That a Rifle Company in connection with and subject to the rules and reg il lations of the Volunteer Force of South Australia, be-subject to the approval of the Commandant-formed in Peters burg?' Such company would, on its formation, be attached to the northern territorial battali...

Gleam in the moon-rays, where pensively dreaming The wave as it murmurs yet mirrors a star; Here, fjnid -the gloom of the coco-plumes lay me, Heap o'er this bosom the sand of the seas, Here let me .sleep where the sigh of the ocean Finds its refrain in the moan of the breeze. Bury me thus-my tired feet towards the water, My head lowly pillowed beneath this proud palm, To sing to me daily the songs the wind taught her, And all the night long to the sea in a psalm. Bemote from the world in this Eden my slumbers Shall last through the aeons now troubles are flown; For me, the wind's whisper, the wave's liquid num bers Bring an earnest of HeaVn to the tsilen and lone. Farewell then, mad world! worn with struggle and slaughter, Commotion and heart-ache-the breeze in my tree Murmurs slowly and swe...

SKETCHES. Clos Vongeot. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 July 1888

SKETCHES. Clos Vongeot. It is fitting' that the sale of the crown jesvels and the sale of Clos Vougeot should occur in the same year. The historian of the year will make the year 1887 notable in France for nothing1 more than for-these two events. The latter, if possible, is the greater of these two. Clos Vougeot is even., more than royal. * King, Emperor, Pope of -wines,' it has been termed. It has been greeted with royal honors. When the restoration of the Bourbons oc curred, Marshal Gouvion de Saint-Cyr led his division of the army through Burgundy. "When in the Gdie d Or, it is told, between Dijon and Ckagny, close by the old Abbey of Citeaux, he ordered a halt. '.Gentlemen,' he said to his staff, * let ub uncover our heads. We have passed by Knits, Volnay, Beaune, Pomard, Riehebourg, Chambertin, Romanee Conte, St. Georges. We are now at Clos Vougeot. Gentlemen, let i-royal salute be fired!'

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 July 1888

? VARIETIES. Military discipline aims to give the soldier such training that he shall never lose his head, and in an emergency shall do the very thing he ought to do. A soldier in Inaia, the sergeant-major of the regiment, one morning was drilling a dozen recruits, when a tiger charged across the parade-ground straight at him. The sergeant immediately dropped on one knee, holding his; musket -with the bayonet fixed, as if about to receive a charge of cavalry. The tiger, not liking the point of the bayonet made a spring over it and the sergeant, knocking off his shako, and rushed into the neighboring jangle. An English barrister was lately summoned before the benchers of his Inn charged with the serious professional offence of accepting a fee of half a guinea, when his brief was marked. with a guinea. The offender was .severely reprimanded, and informed that he had departed from * the best traditions of the bar.' §He urged that he had imagined that he was following * the best traditi...

Old Sayings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 July 1888

Old Sayings. The English language is from time to time enrichedby striking phrases and happy turns of expression, which take each deep and sympathetic root in a popular vocabulary, and enter, into such a common use, that their authorship is almost, invariably overlooked. Thus dees the world rob and then forget its benefactor. Of these Samuel Bntler is per haps one of the most neglected, 'True bine,'for instance, is so ordinary a phrase that we seldom stay to make enquiries about its origin; yet we might, if we looked, find that the author of 'Hudibras' used it to characterise, not the Tory of the day,, but the Presbyterian. He also it was who, as far as we have been able to discover, first in troduced the expression,' the main chance,' in its modern meaning. . And once more we echo him wjhen we -ppeak of ' getting the wrong sow by the ear,' for he wrote, ' you have a wrong sow by the '.ear.', Alexander, Pope gave .us the expres sions, ' dirty wprk,':.. and ' polite . justice.'

Sleep and Sleeplessness. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 July 1888

Sleep and Sleeplessness. The most ancient account that has comedown to usof a systematic attempt to vanquish sleeplessness is probably the one which is to fe. found in the book of Esther. We there learn that Ahasuerus, onan occa-i don when he coold not sleep, ' commanded to ? bring the books of ..records of the .Chronicles, and theywere readhefore him.' _ The book of records of the Chronicles stood in lieaof the newspaper, and a newspaper is stall employed by many as an inducer of sleep. But news-' papers .and the lightHy. ;which to read them are not always at the disposal of wakeful' persons. . Chief among the conditions which accom pany .natural sleep is the comparative freedom: of the brain from blood. The difference is, indeed, sufficient to cause a sensible felling off in the head of a sleeping person. A second condition is the comparative freedom of the brain from oxygen. Alexander von Hum boldt seems to haye oeen the first to suggest this, and hit* theory is now "very general...
