Correspondence. ("ODDS AND ENDS"-Avoid personalities that would be needlessly offensive, and ure ahall be pleased to hear from yon. Real name and address mast be enclosed as a guarantee of good £ <1 o.) SOMETHING IMPORTANT. ASSESSING UNIMPROVED LAND VALUES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir.-Your correspondent Mr A. Dnnjsy it quite right in asserting that a careful enquiry into the abore important question is of much more vital importance than any discussion on the subject of Questionable Amusements, Until I gave the question careful consider ation, I looked with some degree of disfavor upon the agitation for ''assessing unimproved land values." With your permission, I will give your readers the results of my obser vation on these matters. Tbe municipal corporation ofPetersbnrg has under its control about 1,389 acres of land; 1,239 acres of this, however,is agricultural land, and under the present system of taxation is assessed at 2£ per. cent, on its usual value.

Yongala Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

Yon^ala Jottings. (Br ODE CORRESPONDENT.) MrGrrayson's endeavours to reinstate a pound for pound, subsidy for main tenance of country institutes are hereby commended. Mr O. Giles writes me, 41 am.supporting Mr Grayson's motion. It is .only just.' The suctorial ministry, according to expectations, are opposed to the matter, and no doubt a number of centralizers, log-rollers, and schemers who happen to be in the House will coincide with the Government. They disfavor the education of the masses because increased discrimination would keep some of them out of the House and Ministry. Mining ventures are subsidized; .£1,500 was illegally handed to Sir William, to gastronomically educate a favored few; an university to polish veneered brains, and an art gallery to gratify nonproducers and drones-all such objects can, and do receives largfe amounts of money, but we country people get a few coppers grudgingly doled -out to us from the state coffers. Fellow country-people, you are allowing you...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

CHAPTER II. Joah.ua King after his master had left returned to the table where he had been sit ting. He was the only apprentice who was admitted into the circle of the notables, and he had a right to be proud of this exception, as he had won it for himself through his steadiness and worth and uncommon social qualities. King had been about a year and a I half in. Wolt's service. He was a very good and industrious workman, and was much prized by his master. He received the pri vilege of being allowed a latch key and lived with the family. He was often trusted to visit other places for the purpose of purchas ing goods, in all his business transactions he had displayed a thorough knowledge of the subject and the most perfect honesty. He had travelled much in Germany, and had profited to the utmost from what he had seenj and to add to his good qualities he was very modest and respectful towards Wolf and his mother. Neither had ever had a better ap prentice, nor did they wish for any othe...

DEATH OF Mr W. J. THREADGOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

| DEATH OF MB W, J. THEBADGOLD. It is with feelings of sincere regret that we record the death of Mr W, J. Threadgold, eldest son of our respected Mayor (Mr W, Threadgold, J .P.). at Broken Mill on Sunday last. The deceased gentlenran^who leaves a wife and three <jhildredi had been ailing; for about a montk fctit it wa s not until abobt a week before his death that he i took to his bed, when it was found that, in addition to the carbuncles which had been troubling him for a considerable period, he was suffering from Bright's disease. Mr and Mrs W. Threadgold were summoned by telegram on Friday evening and left by early luggage train on Saturday morning, arriving at Broken Hill in time to see their son alive. Dr Groves was primarily in attendance, but when the serious nature of the disease became apparent Drs Bennett and Smith were also called upon to exercise their skill, unfor tunately without avail. The funeral took place bn Tuesday last, the body being interred in the ...

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

CHAPTER HI. ' But Mr. Justice Kern, you must really excuse me,' just said the Mayor. 4 You pre tend to be a man of liberal views, and yet sup port the penalty of death ?' ' Well, my lberal'sm is not to be doubted, Mr. Mayor,' replied the Juage quickly. . I would remind you of the year '48, although some pretend to know as little of the " mad year" as if we were centuries ahead of it and noc only now in 185-.' The mayor was slightly confused, and a faint smile went round the table at his ex pense. Kern stood in '48 at the head of the liberal' German party' in the Capital. He was one of the most prominent lawyers, and he was expected, before that year of revolu tions, to have a great career before him. But instead of that he was immediately after '48 transferred to this little town. Some said he had declined to appear against some political agitators who had had the audacity to demand that the Government should be changed or should join the Prussian 'Three Kings Alliance.' Others said...

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

CHAPTER IV. ' Already half-p&jt eleven,' said Margret quietly to herself spstairs in the servant's room, as she heard ;he town clock strike the j two quarters, and at the e»me time heard TTing mounting the stairs, and go into his room. Oh dear, to-night again I can't go to sleep,' she sighed to herself. ' If I had only my mother to open my heart to, my troubles would be easier to bear. But her heart is still, her voice I shall never hear again.' What trouble could it be that kept sleep away from the couch of that pretty, good, young girl ? She had been in the morning, with her mistress's permission, to visit her native village, about one hour and a half s walk from the town to decorate the graves of her parents. It was lovely walking in the morning air; for she had left very early so as to be back soon enough to prepare for breakfast and dinner. She carried wreaths of fresh roses and mess in her hand; the ribbons of her straw hat, the ends of her neckerchief, and sundry re- ...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

VARIETIES. There are in America over four million farms, large and small. They cover nearly twenty million acres of improved land, and their total value is something like ten billion dollars. These figures are not, of course, very comprehensive. They simply convey the idea of vastaoss of area and equal vastness of importance. The estimated value of the yearly products of these farms is between two and three billion dollars. It is often useful to know of something to another man's disadvantage. Men who cannot be bribed may sometimes be scared, and, though a threat of exposure is a weapon which one is reluctait to use, it's wonder fully effective. Just suppose, for example, that I was acquainted with a man occupying a respectable position in English society, and that I knew that that that man had com mitted a felony gome years ago, say, in one of the most important cities of the Western States. Don't you know that I should have him at my mercy ? Don't you know that I could bring him d...

Family Resemblances. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

Family Resemblances. It is just the same, be sure, in mental matters. There are family characters and family intelligences, as there are family faces and family figures Each individual member of the brood has its own variety of this typical character, but in all its basis is more or less persistent, though any one particular trait, even the most marked, may be wanting or actually replaced by its exact opposite. Still, viewing the family idiosyncrasies as a whole, each member is pretty sure to possess a very considerable number of pecult more or less m commonwith all the n»m; True; Jane may be passionate, while Emily isL sulky; Dick may be a spendthrift, while, Thomas is a mi>er. But Jane and Dick are: both humorous, Emily and Thomas are both music il.

SERIAL STORY. MARGRET, E STORY OF A CRIME. Specially translated, for this paper from the Gartcnlaube by ALFRED H. STEPHEN. IT was St. John's Day, and in the little town of the Dukedom-in which our story lies-it was celebrated in a peculiar manner, for the day was devoted to the dead. From the early dawn stream® of people were visiting the cemetery, to decorate the graves and drop a tear to the memory of departed dear ones. One could not Bee a more touch ing sight than this little mountain- side cemetery in the early morn of that St. John's Day. Bat as soon as the sunneared its Kftnith, the ceremonies for the most part were over, and * the living' were again in the ascendant, the open hotels and restau rants were soon filled with visitors, A club of the notables of the little town were in the habit of dining at the 'Blue Pike,' and spending the evening at the 'Ox.'

In cool gray cloisters "walks my Lady Sleep, Telling her smooth, beads slowly, onejby one; Along the trail the stealthy shadows creep; _ _ Night holds thejworldjii thrall, and day is'done. Sometimes while winds sigh soft above her .head, Down the long garden path my Lady strays, And kneeling by the pansies' puiple bed, BCkmntStthe small faces in the moonliihaze. Sometimes she lies upon the silver sands, following the sea-birds as tbey,wheel and dip; Or idly clasps in stQl^persistent hands, The whining grains that through her finger's slip. Or paces long, with flowing locks all wet, "Where the low thunder booms forevermore, And the great waves no man hath numbered yet, Boll one by one to-jSreak upon the shore. Sometimes eheTnumbereth the twilight stars, The daisies smiling in the meadow grass, The slow Irine trailing through the pasture.bars, The white sheep loitering in the mountain pass.

POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

POPULAR 8C1ENCE. Early rising is one ©f the characteristics of persons who live long1 lives. It is more important than total abstinence. A new method of deadening floors is to fill the space between the floor and the ceiling below with shavings made incombustible by saturating" them in thick whitewash. It is said that this shuts out the sound more effectually than cement. Electric rifles are the lacest. Instead of the ordinary percussion firing device a dry chloride of silver battery and a primary coil will, so it was lately stated before the American Institute, fire the rifle 35,000 times without recharging. Asbestos is being used as a covering for locomotive boilers and domes. It is claimed that it is not necessary to remove it when the boiler requires repairs, as the leak easily shows through it, and a piece can be cut out, the leak repaired and replastered. It is better than wood, and also fire-proof. There are twenty-two crematories in Europe, in which over fourteen hundred in ...

Claude Vignon's Career. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

Claude Tlgaon's Career. In* the midst of the political crisis a re markable career of a peculiarly Parisian stamp has just been brought to a close by the death of Mme. Rouvier, wife of the ex-Premier. She had been better known under her pseudonym of Glaude Vignon. Her maiden name was Noemie Cadiot, and for many years she was one of the idols of Paris. Possessed of con siderable talent, she took to painting, sculpture and novel writing. Pradier was her master with the chisel, and he was proud of her Cupids and saints which fetched high prices. She kept a salon, too, and all the poets and artists of the period paid court to her. But her life was spoiled from the outset by a whimsical marriage. A less romantic woman would have thought twice before linking her fate to that of an unfrocked priest, tbe Abbe Constant, alias FJiphas Levi, Professor of the Occult Sciences. He was, on the whole, a sorry personage, but there was a certain wild charm about him which fascinated young and innocen...

V. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

V. Arrived at Thoradean, happy and unsus pecting, Lady Jane and her daughter waited for Lord Glen core in vain. Even to * dear Lady Somerton' not a .line had come from him. As every one said, it was so strange, so incomprehensible. 'You don't think any thing could have happened to him, Lady Jane P' With a brave spirit worthy of a better woman Lady Jane answered that she did not feel anxious in the least. Lord Glencore had spoken to her of having several most impor tant things to settle, and naturally at times such as these-Lady Jane was forced into a little vagueness of speech-a thousand things cropped up which one had never dreamed of before. Still her heart began to have mis givings, and her courage to sink a little lower, when all was revived by a paragraph in. one of the papers informing all whom it did con cern that Messrs. Bullion & Gold had been intrusted with the family jewels by Lord Glencore with the view of ascertaining which had best be reset to suit their future...
