No title [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 5 July 1878

A STRANGER visiting the Burra the other day arrived at the sage conclusion that the only reason the town is so scattered, and spread about in bits, was that there had been a falling out among the houses, and that the quarrel had evolved much bitterness. We have sent this abominable individual right away, and look forward with melancholy interest to the day when he will be hung! HALLETT.— This young township is fast   growing both in extent and importance. Several new firms are establishing themselves, and new places of business are going on. The business of the hotel is very large on account of the whole of the passenger traffic finding its way there, to meet the rail to Adelaide and other places. The District Council Election   put Mr. Ross in as Councillor for Willogeleech ward and Messrs. Jeffrey and A. J. Williams as Auditors. RABBITS.— These interesting specimens of animal life on a small scale, do not seem quite as numerous as of yore. Perhaps dynamit...

Several farmers expressed their determination to over throw the bug-bear of protec tion at the next general election ten years expeaience of it had taught them that it was ruinous in its consequences to the farmers.

Mr. Whittlestick [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 12 July 1878

Mr. Whittlestick, In the San Francisco newspaper, entitled the Wide West, Mr. Wittles stick amused the people at the digg ins with a sketch of California!! character. The diggers liked to see their every day acquaintances in print, and called for a corrected and revised edition of Whittlestick:s works. This has duly appeared in twenty-four pages large octavo, from the press ot ' Bonestell and Williston, Court Block, Clay Street, one door below the Post Office, San Francisco.' Herein the miner may read about himself. If he be an unsuccessful miner, this is his character: — He knows California to be a humbug. In his judgment the mines most soon give out. He thinks that if he had arrived in 'forty-nine he could have made his fortune But not in digging. No ! Head-work is what he was cat out for. there was a fine owning in forty-niue ' for any man of talent and energy to speculate in real estate.

Education. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 12 July 1878

Education. In looking round at the great topics upon which the mind of the age is deliberating, in the fore front stands Education. Nations seek it for their people. Politicians wax eloquent on it, and the masses are being brought to see its importance. Yet how much, and how generally misunderstood is the subject. One looks upon it almost as the panacea for all the ills man is heir to, another simply as a mark of higher socia status, not conferring any solid advan-   tage on the possessor.         One rightly considers Education to mean knowledge of men past and   present things, new and old, with the power of forming just opinions, by a fair and impartial view of the circum- stances, and a comparison to experi- ence and feeling, entirely unbiassed by prejudice or the mere dicta of others. Another looks upon Educatian merely as the appropriation (mentally) of certain formulae, and the attainment of a set o...

Roads . The state of our thoroughfares is a   subject which is always causing a great deal of grumbling, and the expenditure of sufficient money to make them pro- perly would ????? more grumbling still. We venture to propound the novel doctrine that " a stitch in time saves nine," but in doing so, we do not Di fire ordinary ewt of ' stitch,'' which consists m filling ttp holes with material, which alaste jtist as long ad dry weather, and no longer.

The Week's Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 12 July 1878

The Week's Parliament. - - - —     On Tuesday is the Legislative Council there was but little done. Mr. Fisher stood sponsor for Mr. Bright's Land Bill, which was read a first time. A Bill to amend in some particulars the Inebriates' Act was passed through Committee. Tne Chief Sec. was unable, from influenza, to bring on the question of Council Reform, which is being gradually postponed, so that the elec- tion which will immediately take place may have their effect on the action of the House. In the Assembly Mr. Ward made the most of a small point in blaming the Ministry for wasteful expenditure for party purposes, by telegraphing the result of the last election to England. Over this there was much time lost. The practical work began by the A.G., obtaining permission to introduce a Bill to amend the Electoral Act, to ensure greater accuracy an the rolls, and to require a deposit from all candi- dates so asto prevent sham contests. The Rabbit Bill of so grea...
