THE OPIUM VICE THE USE OF THE DRUG AMONG THE CRIMINAL CLASSES—How IT IS SMUGGLED INTO PENAL INSTITUTIONS—THE INGENUITY OF CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 10 August 1888

THE OPIUM VICE THE USE OF TH-F. DEUG AMONG THE CHIMINAL CLASSES-How IT IS SMUGGLED INTO PENAX INSTITUTIONS--THE INGENUITY OF CBTMTNALS. The stateir ent of Judge Murphy that opium as a factor in the manufacture of young criminals is rivalling, if not supplanting alcohol, :is startling to the community. That the use "of opium in" its various forms is widespread :and gaining ground, is a fact well known; but .many have .supposed that that use is confined : to the small number who are compelled to ?begin their acquaintance with the drug as an ^anodyne to relieve unbearable pain: Having J once familiarized itself with its intoxicating effects, the diseased system refuses to cast it off and henceforth the unhappy individual must choose between the moral slaveiy of the morphine habit and the darkened hours of unrelieved suffering. If this were the only class, addicted to opinm, little danger need be feared by the community at large; for the sick, numerous though they be, exercise little in...

The Last Fashionable Freak. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 10 August 1888

The Last Fashionable Freak. While waiting the result of a search for a negative in a well known photographer's, studio (writes Edith S. Tupper in the Chicago Herald) I looked over the large albums lying on the table. They were,almost entirely filled with pictures of women-beautiful wo men, . and women who fancied themselves beautiful. There was a vast difference; wo men in street costumes, and women in ^even ing gowns, and finally women with no gowns. Not absolutely nude, but the next thing to it. One beautiful head attracted my atten tion-perfect in contour and with soft fluffy hair," highly powdered and twisted into a psyche knot wkich well suited her Grecian profile. The neck was symmetrical, and so were the shoulders, and so was the back, of which one half was' plainly vieible. There was absolutely nothing over the shoulders, not even a strap or bit of 'filmy Jace. There was the maxble-like beauty tremendously' ex posed. I called the bright young women who takes orders and asked...

Voncala Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 10 August 1888

Voncala Jottings. OUB CORRESPONDENT.) If wagering were legal I would boldly lay the enthusiasm of a local mine director against the kindness of a mouse trap, that Mr J. Anderson wishes that he had refrained from asking the Local Court to sooth his disturbed mind touching the.- District Council assessment* Mr Anderson's farm can not be a very desirable bit of earth if it is of less annual rental value than Is 6d per acre. The hearing of the I case eo%t the appellant an amount which would have paid the rates for 12 years.

HINTS FOR THE HOUSEWIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 10 August 1888

HINTS FOR THE HOUSEWIFE. Children should not be allowed to eat much meat. As a rule, the more children are allowed to take meat the more thev want it, while the appetite for other kinds of food is apt to .'diminish. For making rump steak tender, the Italian method of soaking it in sweet oil before cooking is recommended as a fact worth knowing. Instead of beating it, bruise the fibres, soak the steak an hour or so in sweet oil, and then after it is broiled pour over it a piece of butter melted in vinegar. Home-made pottedjmeats, ifproperly made, so far surpass the tinned that it is always desirable to have tliem if convenient. The chief ingredients for these compositions are goad butter and a little pure gravy, extracted from some fresh meat and bones. For example, to make potted tongue: Take one pound of home-cured tongue, four ounces of butter, a salfcspoonful of pounded mace, a coffee cup of beef gravy and a teaspoonful of 1 spiced pepper.' Cut off the hard skin of the tongue and...

ART & LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 10 August 1888

ART & LITERATURE. ' When I find an idea that strikes me,' says Sardou, ' I begin to make a collection of sensational newspaper items, celebrated trials, bits of conversation noted in passing, etc., all of which I write down on scraps of paper. The work of accumulation sometimes lasts for years. "When I take the piece out of the collection it is only in embryo, and then begins the important work. The idea is there, and it remains to be seen in what circle and what epoch I shall make it live, what personages I shall move around it, what names I shall give to these personages, and how I shall clothe them, for none of the necessary details figure in the collection. My heroes have no names. They are forces, A. B. : Prom the, contact of these three forces must come a capital situation, which is the knot of the intrigue. My first dramatic thought always "comes to me under this formula, after which I seek to find out what causes can bring, on this situation, and what logical deducti...

CHINESE TORTURES. HOW CELESTIALS PUNISH CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 10 August 1888

CHIN ESE TORTURES. ] HOW CEbfl8Ti4LS PUXISH CRIMIMLS. China is a gigantic mbnumentof long-past ages, standing alon'e"amid our modem crea tions, an imperishable store-bouse pi ancient forms and conditions. -As, ..the ,rest; of-the world was 3000-or 4t)00/years ago,, so China is now. Her codes,- her f courts and1 her punishments are now- just as they were in her barbarous ages. They are just as crude and cruel as they were when she emerged from savagery. It seems as though every instilu tion of that country fossilized when . the written characters were invented, and there they now are, 'typical of those ages, inviting the student. There is a written criminal code, known as the ' Tashing* . code, which is a slight modification of the old Chinese code as it had existed from ,*the earliest times. These modifications were made by the present Tartar ralers when they conquered'China, nearly 400 years ago. Its essential features -Are Chinese, and it recognizes not only the most barbarous pun...

&FRE CIMTS, OBBOBOS CHROWCIE MDNOKTHERR ADVERTISER. i FRIDAY; AUG, 10, 1888. i With this issue the Times enters on the second year of its existence, and we take this opportunity of thanking our friends for the support we have received during the past twelve months. Taking a retrospective glance over the work of the past year, and at the same time bearing in mind the initial difficulties that ace inseparable from the establishment of a new journal, we have every reason to be satisfied with the progress made, and we trust that the friends who persuaded us to set up our press in Petersburg, and who have so liberally patronised us since our doing so, are not disappointed in their weekly journal. Twice during the year paper has been enlarged, the circulation increasing with each alteration, and though we know the Timet is a very long way short of being perfect - even as a country journal-yet we are vain enough to think that it at all events compares favorably with its immediate c...

LADIES' COLUMN. At a Turkish Batli. ' lhe ladies lavonte hour ior bathing in New York Turkish baths is in the morning before the grand promenade in the avenue, the drive in the park, the matinee or the fashionable calling-dress parade of the afternoon, and between the hours often and twelve they may be seen trooping into the baths, which are sacred to their use at this time. All sorts of women may be found there. They come in carnages and on foot, they come with their maids in attendance, they come chattering along in pairs, and they come tripping in alone, they come in the daintiest of toilets, and they ? disappear 111 the small red-curtained rooms or stalls, and presently reappear clothed only in diamonds and sheets, with their hair be it spare or heavy, hanging over their shoulders. The attendants present the picturesque appearance, being clothed only in a short tunic of white cotton, caught on one shoulder, falling away from the other down under one arm, and reaching to the knee...

A HUMBUG. AD old, old garden. There the days Slipped by in drowsy quiet; There bees 'were busy in the shade And posy-buds ran riot; And there in summer Dolly strayed, Plain-gowned, in cap and wimple, Her frills andruffles laid aside - To play at bang simple. The wild-roM hiding in: her curls' Looked somehow pale and faded . Beside the pink and dimpled cheek ? Heraneient head-gear shaded ; And when the casing bluebird heard Her dear voice lightly thriving Through old-world airs, lie quite forgot To criticise T»<*r trilling. t ... So artless, shy, and sweet she seemed That I, a cynic, doubted Of modest ways and downcast eyes, Went fairly wild about her; And falling at the little feet That crashed the yellow lilies, ~ I wooed «s Strephon used to moo Bis Cydian Amaryllis. .-SUnne!'

And years, with their joys and sorrows, Have passed since we last the way To the beautiful buried treasure At the end of the rainbow's ray; But love has been true and' tender, And life has been rich and sweet, , And we stall clasp bands with the olden joy That makes our day complete.

Fancy Dress Ball at Terowie. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 August 1888

Fancy Dress Ball at I'eptwic. 5 [Br ONE WHO WAS THERE] The following is taken from a re port of the above. which appeared in the Port Pirie Advocate of last week: A very successful sobiifl. gathering was held on Friday evening, August 3, in the Terowie Institute, where the youth, beauty, and fashion of many of the surrounding towns concentred in response to invitations from Dr and Mrs Alfred Hill, who carried out the happy idea of celebrating their recent nuptial contract by giving a fancy dress reception hall. The interior of the hall presented a charming and varied spectacle as, shortly after 8.30., to the accompaniment of inspiriting music, positions were taken for the opening quadrille. Stretched diagonally in rows across the room gay-coloured pennants illumined the natural tints of tasteful window and wall drapery, and, with the rich-hued, and magnificent costumes of the dancers, the glitter and flash of arms and ornaments, the jingle of tambourine bells and sequina, and the j ...

Church ofEngland Enter taiDmcnt. The third fortnightly entertainment in aid j of the Church of England Building Fund, vas held in the Petersburg Institute Hall on Friday, 10th inst» The hall was comfortably filled by an appreciative audience, and it must have been very gratifying both to the pro moters and the performers that the affair passed off very successfully, As time goes on theBe entertainments improve in tone and increase in popularity. Much good is derived from the frequent holding of local amateur performances. They bring out mental and vocal talents which would otherwise probably either lie dormant or never see daylight. This last production was generally voted superior to either of its predecessors and was undoubtedly an unqualified success. The entertainment was opened with an overture : "Faify Don Love" which was nicely played by Mias Wade, who is a new addition to the musical circle of Petersburg. Mr Livesey then sang in good voice "A Soldier and a man," and in respo...

Williams, the proprietor of the Petersburg Hotel appeared in the local police Court as defendant in an assault case, and the proceedings were, as usual, taken down by our reporter in shorthand. Shortly after the con clusion of the case Mr. Williams called at our office and requested us not to publish the proceedings, but was promptly informed that we could make no exception to an 4 established rule in his or any other case, and that the report would appear in due course.
