The Sharp Boy. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887
Tbe Slaarp Boj. When we hear a man chanting the praise of his son, is "it usually the modesty, gentleness, or truthfulness of the boy. No, it is nothing of this sort, but you are told that, " Tom is such a sharp, clever little chap, ca.11 do his work like lightning, nothing in the way of a task comes amiss to him, in fact, between you and me, he can beat all the lads in the school; while that dull lad of Robinson's has to work like a slave to get up his lessons, he can get through them as well as his master could." Now the lad knows veiy well how his father admires all this sort of thing, and he gets to think that sharp* ness, cuteness, is the main thing. That, comparatively speaking, perseverance and industry are of little account, and I being " smart" in school he can hum bug the governor to any extent. In | short he discovers that his father ismore proud of his brains than his heart. And in due time this is turned against the | father himself. The way in which | fathers are duped...

Correspondnce. MR. WARD'S LECTURE [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887
Correspondnee* ME. WARD'S LECTURE SIR,-Being one of the forty who attended Mr, Ward's lecture last Fri day, I was greatly surprised at the want of management shown in arrange ing the details necessary in carrying out a lecture, of this description. In the first place I think the thing should have been well advertised ; and, secondly, some other amusement besides the lecture should have been provided; thirdly, I think our local band might have been engaged for the occasion ; and, last but not least, I think an efficient doorkeeper might have been appointed. As it is I think the Institute Committee will find that several entered without enquiring the price of admission. am, etc., JOSEPHUS.

MODEL PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887
MODEL PARLIAMENT. Sir-I am glad that the people of Petersburg have resolved to form a Model Parliament for the purpose of discussing political matters, and I would point out that seven years since Orrorno had a similar institution, and one of the results is that Mr. Copley, a farmer, enjoys the privilege of signing himself M.L.C., and I am told that he thanks societies of the above mentioned character, coupled with his own perse vering character, for the position he holds to day ; and I think there can be no two opinions but that it is such men as him we want in both Houiis of Parliament. Then I say the people in the neighborhood of Petersburg should rallyup and join the Petersburg Model Parliament, to help to make it what it ought to be-a political edu cator for this part of young Australia. Yours, etc. JOSEPHUS. BUSINESS CHANGE. - It will be noticed by advertisement that Mr. Thomas Nelson,baker and confectioner, has disposed of his business to Mr. William Rhoda. Mr. Nelson, we are...
