District Council of Pirie. SATURDAY NOVERMBER 19. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 23 November 1898

I ®is^9t50e™a^e^^irie. Saturday November 19. Present-—Cr. Forrestel (in the chair), N. Hewitt,;J. Kuril, R. McEwin, and the Clerk (Mr. E. E. Davis). Mr. S. B. Bicliardeon attended, and asked the Council to put a dam across creek at the end of the Chain Road near Crouch's. This would keep the watea off the Three-chain road, and" would benefit several adjacent landowners. The work could be done cheaply, not'more than half a chain of banking being required. Cr. Kuril said if they erected a ford ifc would soon be undermined as the ground was so rotten. Mr. T. Davidson had appliedto the Council for permission to cut off part of the stream so as to supply himself with water, and if a ford were put in as requested they would be depriving him of the water. The Clerk asked Mr. Richardson if Mr. Crouch would object to the proposed work. ■ -a-"' '' Mr. Richardson thought it was rot likely, as it would giva him 3 permanent water supply.

Excursion to Port Augusta. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 23 November 1898

I&cursioa toPoriAugasta, TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I cannot allow, the letter appear ing in your last issue re the late excursion to Port Augusta to pass unchallenged. Your correspondent, Mr. Drysdale, in fers that we, the promoters of the said trip, conveyed passengers to the above, port on false pretences. Now, Sir, ! deny the insinuation in toto. We were informed on most reliable authoritythat the Caledonian sports mentioned were to take place, and that it was an annual fixture; therefore we placed : the fact before the public on our posters, and only on the morning of the; trip were we informed that no sports were to be held at Port Augusta. 1 might mention that some of our athletes were training for the events to take place at the said sports. Also, none of our passengers made any complaints re the absence of sports, all seeming to have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Be the matter of black board advertisement, we are a cut above this mode of advertising. We have a frrst-class ...

T&9 Legislates Geuacil ; ^ISleetioss. ^ ONLY an apathetic interest is being taken in .this district in the election which is to take place on Saturday to fill the- vacancy in the Legislative Council caused 'by the " death of Dr. Campbell. And if the speeches which were delivered by Mr. Haslaiu, and Mr. Tennant in Port Pirie are to be taken as a fair sample of their utterances in other places, the candidates themsel ves are not likely to arouse any very great enthusiasm in the: contest. - The pro ceedings; at the meeting here were wearisomely tame' and monoton ous.

PROPRIETARY V. PORT PIRIE.

It was generally considered the Ports would make the required number, bat when 6 wickets bad gone down for 55 it looked good business for the other side. However, a splendid innings - by Pimlott saved his side from defeat. Whitelaw and he re sumed operations for the Ports, but when the former had increased bis score v to : 19 he returned one to Sandry. Perry and "Williams went cheaply, 5®nd Scott; was but l.bVw. to Sandry for 4. The bowling and fielding was first-class, and runs were hard to get. Carlile knocked up18 very quickly at a time they were sadly needed, but his eagerness was his downfall, and Sundry snapped him up of? Jones. Meanwhile "Pim lott was plodding along q...

The Fatal Thirteen. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 23 November 1898

The Fatal T&stsea, One meets superstitions people everywhere, and when possessed of these strange notions if there is one thing more than another that thay object to do it is to sit down at.a table when the guests aumber thiiteen. An uncanny feeling over comes them as they are regardful of the superstitious tradition that; the last to rise shall .die within the year. Only a fortnight ago thirteen people sat down to a meal at a certain gentleman's ;hpuse, and one of ftlie number was ; a Jwell-knoiwn "lady? musician. One of the guests," whose home is on the sea, noticed the fatal number and immediately remarked it. A landsman ridiculed the absurd superstition. The lady musician de nounced the foolish fancy. "To show how much I believe in it I shall be the last "to. get up from the table," she said laughingly. One of the guests wanted to share the risk with her, but- she objected, and remained seated for several minutes after the other guests? had risen: from their places., . T...

Attacks of indigestion in a more or , less, mild form are too common to dwell jupon at any length." As its name implies, this disorder is an insufficient action of the various digestive organs, which prevents the food being properly dissolved. In cases of this kind the effect is twofoldfirst, the waste part of the food is kept in the stomach a fid bei-omes sour instead of being carried off ; and, secondly, the bloodmaking or useful jart of the food is kept from performing its offices. The causes of indigestion are; many: insufficient liver action, over eating, eating too...
