The Petersburg Times, ORROROO CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY SEPT. 23rd, 1877. MINING SHARE SPECULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
Cj}t &imm, ORRDROO CHBCHICUE AND NGRTBEBN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY SEPT. 23rd, 1877. mmXG (SHARE SPECU LATIONS. It is satisfactory to find that the metropolitan and country press is fulfilling its duty to the public by denouncing in no measured terms the present share mania. The following remarks from the " Gawler Bunyip " we most cordially en dorse, commending them at '?the same time to the careful notice of our readers:-Ade laide is only getting out of one trouble to drop into another. But a very short time ago dealing in land for speculative prices was all the rage. For awhile all seemed prosperous^ Land rose in value and each successive sellef made a profit. But the top price ' was reached at last and then all were ready to sell. Then . .-down tumbled the prices, bringing to the ground many a man who otherwise . would have been in a good position. There was nothing to warrant the rise in land values. The price was simply forced up by a fictitious demand. The high prices and pr...
Selected Poetry OLD BENDIGO. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
Selected Poetry OLD BENDIGO. Let Poly go with Redman; mind be careful of the steer, Bring Bob and Rambler from the creek, they'll find good picking here. Just fling the sheaoak on the fire; there, catch that end, now throw This 'minds me of our maiden trip to dear old Bendigo. Old Bendigo! the veiy name is treasured in my breast Just pass the billy this way, Jack. Not boiled yet! Well, Fm blest If that there wood will ever burn, this iron bark is slow Tou know the gally of that name on dear old Bendigo. Oh. when we camped upon that track-that damper must be done Around the blazing log at night, what tough old rarns were spun By Sydney Ned, and Derwent Bill, and Mumunbidgee Joe! Where are they now ? Ah! mate, the'll drive no mote to Bendigo. I can't help laughing when I think-old mate juflt pass a chew Of that 'ere time when Murphy's team got bogrged at Carlsruhe, Big Barney Fagan shouted-whilst the wheels were bedding low " Fair, boys, there's some deep slnkin' on the road to Bendig...
Local News. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
Local News. We regret to learn that Dr, Steven? son will shortly be leaving Petersburg, and we also understand Dr. -&lt;4bram owski is leaving Terowie for Book mark, Messrs. Chaffey Brothers' Irri gatioa Colony- Is this part of the colony too healthy for the medical profession ? THE TRAINS,-On and after the first of October next there will be several alteration in the train service on the North lines which the travelling public will do well to look up. Heavily loaded trains daily arrive from the; metropolis with returning excursionists, the trains, on . Wednesday and Thursday from Terowie being literally crammed. The weather during the past few days has been very boisterous, with, threatening indications of rain, of which however we have had very little during j the week, 10 points only being regis- j tered at the postoffice for the 24 hours j previous to 9 am on the 22nd. A good j downfall would now prove very accep- ' table, as the dust is beginning to rise.1, DAWSON PICNI...
City Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
City Gossip. BT A. TALKER. ! They say Sir Henry Parkes S came to us at an unfortunate ! time, he being a. free-trade [advocate, whilst the majority of South Australians have just embraced the selfish policy protection. * #. * They say it was bad taste on the part of Sir Henry toiriflict ao hoar-and-a-half speech upon a protectionist people, and that by a freetrader. . # They say the Press had a perfect right to feel insulted by the treatment receiyed at Sir Henry's banquet; but it was doubtful if it was good taste on the part of the newspapers to make so much ado about having to pick the bones after the feast. It shows good breeding and a magnanimous spirit, they say, *' to take but little notice of little deeds, and never look; for an insult." - *; ' . . # /...

A LIFE BLIGHTED. "Out pleasant vices Are made the whips to scourge us." SHAKESPEARE. " Guilt is a timorous thing."—COLERIDGE. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
A LIFE BLIGHTED (Br W. 8. H., PEfEBSBUEG ) K Out pleasant vices Are made the whips to scouige us." .-SHAKESPEARE. " Guilt is a timorous thing."-ColEKIDGE. CHAPTER I. " I thought you told me there would be no danger about it-that the cheque would never be presented," " How did I know Fluker would be so hard up, and have to part with the cheque," was the reply. ." Well what am I to do now ? I can no more raise eighty; pounds than I can fly. It's absolute nun to me if nothing worse if that cheque is presented. I wish the races and you too had been at Old Harry." " Oh my dear fellow, now that is very ungrateful, I could not help Blair Athol winning ; I didn't tell you to back him any more than I told you to forge the cheque to pay the bet when you lost.7* " Confound yon, hold your tongue, can't you, or some one will hear. You needn't throw the thing in my teeth. If it hadn't been for you Ishould never have dreamed of doing a mad thing like that. The bet might have gone to the deuce befo...
Black Rock. September 22. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
Black Rock, September 22. I We have experienced a very hot wind to-day, accompanied by clouds of dust, and at night we had a great deal of thunder and lightening. We are hoping it will rain, for farmers are crying out for more rain to fallow up new ground, for it is getting very hard. The crops in'this hundred are looking very well, and I measured some wheat which went as high as three feet ten inches, and which was grown on the plains. Some wheat in the Hundreds of Yongala and Morgan is not looking so well as expected.
Caltowie. September 21, 1887. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
Caltowie. September 21, liS87. Nominations for the events to be run off here in connection with the Court Harmony A.O.F. anntlal festival' have filled up fairly . Well. 23 have entered for the Sheffiei^' 7. fpr the t'urdles, a like number for the walking, and 10 for the mile race. Mr. A. McDonald, the handicapper, has not framed his awards up to his usual standard, and I think it is a comparatively easy task to ' tip' the winners, beginning with the Sheffield handicap, 135 yards. I favor the scratch man, Keaney, who if he wishes to annex the event will hardly fail to do bo, the placed men to come from the following:-Finey, Wills, Hannitt, Robinson, Ferry, and O'Dea. For the hurdles, D. O'Dea or E. .Robinson should win, with Sixton close up. The walking match is virtually a match between Robinson and Wilson, though March or Scott may upset the arrange ment. Of the competitors in the mile race I favor Wilson, who should win in a walk, with EL and E. Robinson to fill the places. Busine...
Gladstone. September 23. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
^Gladstone* September 23. A very successful entertainment was given in the Institute on Friday even ing last by. the children attending the Gladstone State School, assisted by lady and gentlemen amateur^.: The children taking part, to the number of about 50, dressed in white, occupied seats on the platform. A good programme, .consist ing of songs, part songs and duets, was presented. The performers acquitted themselves, very creditably, reflecting much credit on the careful tuition of their instructor, Mr C. Maley. There was a large audience, and the proceeds of the entertainment are to be devoted to the purchase of school prizes. Owing to the large number of passen gers returning on Saturday from Ade laide, the train was more than an hour late on reaching this station. From the same cause the trains have-been con siderably delayed every evening since. We have lately experienced a few days hot weather, which set in very suddenly. Tuesday last was stormy, and there was also much thun...
Local Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
Local Gossip. They say our City Fathers might be more regular in atten dance at the Corporation meet ings, and that it is not satisfac tory th^t .business should have to be postoned one fortnight after another owing to the non attendance of our worthy Councillors. Will the shortly to-be-elected representative for East Ward bear this in mind. # *' * : They say our local clergymen were hot conspicuous by their presence at the meeting in the Petersburg Institute Hall on Tuesday evening. # # * They say the Committee of our local Agricultural Society have not been as energetic as might reasonably be expected, "and that had the matter been taken up" with more spirit-as in Port Pirie, for instance-a more successful show might be anticipated. * * # They say it is a pity that such a talented preacher as the Rev. W. S. Hopcrafit should have to conduct service in such a, miser able structure as that occupied by the Church of England in Petersburg, and that such a state of things does not refle...
