Yongala Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 31 August 1888
Yon gala Jottings. OOB CORRESPONDENT) With tired limbs, clear conscience and a weary brain, last evening I laid ®6 down upon the couch to rest-perchance to muse. Presently a hot breath, «the exhalations of a smelter, swept aeross my visage, and a weiid voice, like the blending of all »°und« ?aid, " I arrest yon in the name of Civiliz ation, deputy god of earth! I am Opunon, sent to bring you to judgment ? Rapidly as linht flashings, I was transported to a mighty hall of such magnitude that the roof and walls were away in the uncertain dufc ance. The grandeur of the surrounding vat appalling, yet everything.appeared transient, unreal and hollow. The god Civilization sat in splendour upon a mighty and beauti ful dais, in front of which amidst a vast concourse of strangely robed beiags 1 was placed. A sphinxlike silence and immov ability sat upon all and everything. Pre sently a cloud-like scroll was by an invisible power, unrolled, and I heard a voice say, "Human atom ! In the name of...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 31 August 1888
TO THE EDITOR. SIB.-I believe there is a general feeling of dissatisfaction as to the manner in which, the presentations to Messrs Cunningham and Steadman were made. At a contributor, I think that a twopenny- halfpenny peep show was about the lad place one would have chosen for an important ceremony of the sort. I should not be surprised if on the next similar occasion, the few, who con sider themselves the ruling powers of this noble city, were to wait for a one horse circus, and invite the recipients into the ring, kindly asking the clown to officiate. 1 take it, Mir, that all who have contributed to the testimonial fund should have an equal voice in the matter, whether they be bloated bankers, blooming barristers, burly butchers, bollock punchers, pious parsons, prosperous publicans, plain porters, loafing larrikinBor legal lord mayors, and lam at a loss to understand why two or three should arrange matters in this hole and corner fashiou, without the knowledge or sanction of the...

MR CUNNINGHAM'S PRESENTATION. TO THE EDITOR. SIB,-In making itbe presentation to the above gentleman the other evening, His Worship the Mayor stated that the gold watch was subscribed for by the residents of Petersburg. As this portion of the present ation was the gift of Mr L. Judell, as a nurk of his appreciation of Mr Cunningham's efforts at the late fire, and as MrJudell was unable to attend, it will ba only a matter of justice to that gentleman if yon will publish this correctioa.

District News. BENDLEBY, Sept 4th. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 7 September 1888
District KeWS. BENDLEBY, Sept 4th. About half aa inch of rain fell here on Friday last. This has greatly improved the appearance of the crops, which were looking very bad indeed. In fact bad the rain held off soother week there would have been very little reaping done ab >ut this part. As it is should we have a favourablespring a moderate yield may yet be expected, from many of the paddocks. Feed is very scarce and young grasshoppers "are now making their appearance. BURRA. Matters are not yet settled in reference to our local waterworks. The ratepayers are strongly protesting against the high assessment made by the Government with a view of making a water rate. It is an acknowledged fact that the waterworks would not have been such a failure had many of the unprincipled persons who have been growing vegetables and using the water paid for it, instead of slinking behind the technicalities of a rotten law. The govern ment will not allow any of this dishonesty. YATINA. Sept. 1. The...

FARM AND GARDEN How to Take Care of Milk [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 7 September 1888
FARM AND GARDEN How to Take Care of Milk A dairyman of Scotland, in a lecture before an agricultural conversation gives the follow ing suggestions, which will be found useful bp those having the handling of milk on this side of the ' big pond' as well as in Great Britain: In addition to having suitable food and pure water, dairy cows should be provided with properly ventilated houses, constructed in such a way as to resist the heat of summer and coldness of winter, and to insure a circu lation of fresh air without drafts. Uniformity oi temperature is very largely conducive to a regular milk vieldf and if its quantity is depen dant upon the hind and amount of food con sumed, its quality is affected by the kind of air inhyled, So far as concerns the purity and flavor of milk and butter, there need be no hesitation in asserting that the expense and study devoted to a proper system of reeding is largely thrown away in the case r f cows kept in an ill-ventilated building and breathing a ...
