BRAMFIELD, MAY 19. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
BRAMFIELD, May 19. The landlord of the Bramfield Hotel, Mr. Henry Wright, died at his residence on the morning of Friday, May 20. The cause of death was heart disease and dropsy.— A petition has been prepared to get the cemetery removed from its present site, which is nothing more than a bed of rock, to a more suitable place. The digging of the grave for the late Mr. Wright took ten men thirty-four hours, as they had to quarry it down to a depth of 5 feet, and they could not have succeeded in getting to that depth without the use of explosives.

The cheapness of money is indaoing capi talists to purchase shares more freely, and to in vest in new undertakings which promise to pay a lair return. From official returns we gather that the late harvest was worse than expected. There was a highly satisfactory increase in the ar-3a cultivated, but tbe average yield, according to the Government statist, was only 4 bushels 68 lbs. per acre. Bad as the yield has been we shall still export breadstuff* valued at over (£1406,732.

However small your knowledge of Eng lish history may De, there is not, perhaps, one oi you Doys ana gins ot America who has not heard at least the name of Mary, Queen of Scots, though it is now nearly three hundred years since she died. She was the only child of James V,, of Scot land, and his wife, Mary of Guise. English history after this period deals much with, the Stuarts. They had reigned in Scotland for many generations ; a race full of chivalrous qualities,nohle,and gentle, and graceful, but always more or less unfor tunate. Some of tbe Jameses had straggled with all their might among their rude and fierce and powerful nobility for the good of the people, of whom the king was the natural defender.
