OUR CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, December 18, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 20 December 1878

oub crrr letter. [From our ovvn Correspondent.] Adelaide, December 18, 1878. The English cricketers left on Saturday i evening, after having spent a very pleasant fortnight in the colony. They took their departure just in time, for the temperature was warming up, and on Saturday was de cidedly hot, the next day being decidedly hotter, and Monday giving a pleasing change by -way of variety with a cooler breeze, but clouds of dust. The dust was horrible, and even now I feel as if a few shovelfuls were sticking in the corners of my eyes and in the back of my throat. When we see what collects on the footpaths we have some idea of what goes into our internal arrangements on a very dusty day. His Excellency Six* William Jervois with Lady Jervois and their daughters no doubt ^appreciated the recent specimen of the pleasures of Adelaide lite, tor I hear they contemplate removing to lort Elliot to-morrow. One day such as Monday last is sufficient for a whole summer, but the worst of it is th...

THE MAN WITH THE RED EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 24 December 1878

THE MAN WITH THE RED EYE. About eight rears ago, ■when I had not rail roaded as long as I have now, I -was employed as a messenger on a western railway. T don't know as it is necessary for me to say what line it "was, but I will call it the B. T. and G-. R. R., to save myself tlie trouble of pro nouncing the whole name. I had not been on the run more than s month previous to the date of the occurrence of which I am going to tell. I had been running on a branch route for more than a year, and I might have stared there a good deal longer if I had not been chosen to take Paxton's place when he went off. You see, two or three attempts had been made to rob the express car, and at last, at the end of a long run, Paxton was found dead in the car with a bullet-hole in his head. But the safe "Was closed tight and secure, though, an at tempt had been made to blow it open, which proved ineffectual. But the strangest part of it all -was that the key was missing from Paxton's pccket, and it was ...

THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 24 December 1878

THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. The light of other days has fled, The poet's farthing dip is dead. Your modern rhymster burns instead Of midnight oil, bright gas. As lamps 'gainstcandles gained, the day, As oil in turn to gas gave "way, So gas is fated, some folks say, To be outshone, alas ! In this strange, scientific age, Wild notions all men's thoughts engage, And bottled lightning's now the rage For turning night to moon ; A blinding, blueisli, dazzling glare, That human eyes can scarcely bear, A sort of half-and-half affair Between the sun and moon. The stranger blinking both his eyes, 1 As this electric light he spies, Quite lost in open-mouthed surprize, Stands staling up aloft. But let him haply try to read Some book or paper, then, indeed, He'll find so ■well he won't succeed As 'neath the gaslight soft. Your bottled lightning's first-rate stuff To blaze from some high windy bluff, Where oil lamps are not bright enough To make the coast-line clear. For out-door fetes 'twill.maybe do, B...

GAWLEB. [TFrom our own Correspondent.] December 23,1878. Christmas is now close on us. It will be a very quiet one here, the only attraction being cricket matches. The intended grand festival will not come off, it having been post poned till cooler weather. The machinists have got the most of their busy rush over, and intend closing some of their yards for a fortnight. The stores arc closing three days in succession at new year, which will enable the assistants to get a change away. Unfor tunately the trains do not ruu any later than ordinary. If they returned from Adelaide at say 7 o'clock it would enable people to enjoy another day at the seaside with their families. They now leave here at half-past 8 in the morning, and have to return just as it is getting pleasant at the seaside. Getting a dip jin the briny is a great treat for us who have none too much water here. The Commercial Bank has been opened here, and is doing satisfactorily so far.

FREELING. [From our own Correspondent.] December 20, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 24 December 1878

FREE LIN Gr. £From our own Correspondent.] Deeember 20,1878. I have to hronicle the lamented death of Miss Heinricch, daughter o£ M"t. Gottlieb Ueimick, of Schonfeldt, near Free ling. She died on last Monday. The cause of her death seems to have been sunstroke partly, and the fact that while in a state of great heat she drank copiously of cold water, and plunged her feet in cold water. Mrs. Lohr mann, our good Samaritan, went to her aid as so^-n as possible, but seeing that the case was assuming a Berious aspect, she advised that the doctor be sent for. After that she was attended by Dr. Everhai'dt, of Tanunda. The young lady was highly respected, and the warm-bearted sympathy of her follow country men was aroused at once. All the worry of arranging matters for her parents was taken off their hands by the practical sympathy of several of the Germans residing in Freeling. The funeral, which took place on Wednesday, and was very numerously attended.

ORIGINAL POETRY. "WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE REAP." A Christmas Reverie. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 24 December 1878

ORIGINAL POETBY. WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETK THAT SHALL HE REAP." A Christmas Reverie. The night was dark, wild blew the wind ; The old man's eyes were often dimmed, And fast the tears were flowing, For he recked how little he had thought Of the miseries which, the reaping brought In days when the crop was sowing. He thought how slender that crop was sown And how the tares in his wheat had grown When life with him -was young ; And now with silent and mournful thought He was reaping a retrospect sadly fraught, For harvest time had come. He wa3 gathering into his stores of mind What good and ill to his fellow-kind In all his days he had done; And many a bitter pang to bear Had furrowed his cheek and brow with care Ere that harvesting was done. The soil had been good in his early youth For the culture of n >bl *. virfcai and truth; But, eager for gay pursuits, He had wasted the time in the spring of day, And now when his hair was thin and grey He was culling the bitter fruits. The phant...
