Terowic. September 14. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 September 1887

Terowic. September 14. There was a rare sight at the railway station on Tuesday, the 13th, the station being completely crammed with passengers by the cheap trains. The train not being ready to take them on when they arrived at Terowie, they had to wait about the station, crowding the place so that the trains had some trouble in shunting about. They got a start about twenty minutes later than their proper time. About fifty passengers booked here. Country people seem to be taking advantage of the fine weather and cheap fares. The flour mill that has been idle so long has been taken by Mr Fox, of White-Yarcowie. It is being repaired, and is expected to be in full work again soon. We are having splendid weather, and the farmers are in good cheer with a good harvest promising if all goes well.

The Petersburg Times, ORROR[?]O CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY SEPT. 16th, 1877. THE INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 September 1887

Cjw Cairns, ORROROO CHRONICLE ANDHORWERN ADVERTISER. FBI DAT SEPT. 16th, 187<t. THE INSTITUTE. Of all local institutions whether in a Ions: established Said populous centre or in a comparatively yoUng commun ity, we think that few will deny that a public Institute, contain ing a library and free reading room, has the firsj; claim to public patronage and support. We would therefore draw the atten itiqn of our readers to a few facts, gathered from reliable sources, concerning the Institute of this town; facts which, we regret to say, tend to show that its affairs are not so flourishing as is desirable, and that it lacks that hearty support which is imperatively necessary to ensure a venture of this kind (now in its infancy) attaining the end for which it was started, namely, that of public instruction and enter tainment, as well as to enable it to ultimately become a financial success. We consider the present oc casion suitable for discussing this matter, as we have lately ...

? ? ? Catholic Notes. It will be interesting to our Catholic readers to learn that the consecration of the right rev. Dr. O'Reilly, as Bishop of Port Augusta, has been defi nitely fixed for Sunday, 2nd October. He will be consecra ted by Archbishop Reynolds, assisted by Bishop Gibney of Perth, and Bishop Salvado of Port Victoria, and it is probable some of the other prelates will endeavour to be present. His lordship the Bishop of Wilcannia (Dr. Dunne) passed through Petersburg this week on his way to Silverton, which is a portion of his diocese. He was the guest of Father Norton on Tuesday night, and started for Silverton on Wednesday morning.

About tventy members of the local Rifle Company left for Adelaide on Friday last, to take part in the He view held there on the following day, A combined Catholic pionic, to be followed by a concert and ball, is advertised to take place on the 26th inst. As events of this 1 kind do not often occur in Gladstone it is to be hoped that the efforts put forth by our Catholic friends will meet with much success. The Anglican Bishop, Dr Kennion, assisted by the Rev. R. R. Taylor, conducted divine service in the Institute on Sunday evening l last. The spacious building was filled, and many peop'e were unable to obtain sitting i accommodation. The bishop chose the Apostles' creed as the subject of his discourse, : and spoke for an hour, securing the rapt I attention of the large congregation.

Eurelia. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 September 1887

Karelia* On Saturday last Mr John Kingsbury, of this township, met with a rather serious and painful accident. It appears he was cutting a bough off a gum tree which, when falling, caught his arm in the angle of another bough, .and there kept him suspended for upwards of twenty minutes at a height of about twelve feet from the ground. Only for the timely passing of a friend who was attracted by his cries ms case would hare been fatal. Doctor Elphick, of Orroroo, was in prompt atten dance, and did all that was possible for his arm, which was badly broken and mutilated.

Black Rock* This hundred, 1 am happy to say, is look ing splendid, for both wheat and grass are growing satisfactorily, though the severe fronts we are occasionally having will not improve things; the stock also is looking weti Some of our roads are in a rather bad state just now owing to the recent heavy rains. The country is getting well turned over in readiness for next year as the farmers are in high spirits in anticipation of a good harvest. Some of our farmers were cutting green feed on the railway for their cattle, but bad to stop, so it will be burnt now instead of letting the farmers have it for their stock.

Correspondence. RAILWAY REFRESHMENT ROOMS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 September 1887

Correspondence; RAILWAY REFRESHMENT ROOMS BILL. SIB,-I notice that the Government by making certain alterations have succeeded in passing this bill by a sub stantial majority. Holding the opinion that the indiscriminate sale and use of intoxicants lias a baneful and prejudicial effect upon tlie progress of our country, 1 am entirely opposed to any legislation that would tend to increase its sale and use, and I maintain that it is the duty of the Government to do all in their power to make every provision for the safety of the travelling public. This I feel confident they are not doing, by passing a bill which practically makes our South Australian railway stations sites for little miniature^hotels, I would again point out, sir, that it is proposed to grant a licence at this place, .how, I ask any unbiassed right thinking man is it required at Petersburg. Ask the travelling public "is Petersburg Railway Station not the most dangerous one on our South Australian lines," and I feel sur...
