SIB,-I notice that Mr Bees, in moving on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Keirnan for compen sation for the loss of the support in their old age of their eon, Patrick Keirnan, which happened in oar railway yard twelve months ago last March, expresses his great surprise at the danger attending the station, without going into the distressing case above referred to.

City Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 30 September 1887

City Gossip. BY A. TALKER. They say after a deal of stone-walling both the parties in Parliament haye allowed the business of the country to go forward and that good progress has been made with the new tariff. * # * They say that Big Ben de served the rebuke he got when trying to steal a mprch on the Attorney-General. Theformer should have known that he was not equal to the task. * # * They say-" How times have turned round!" as we have been having in the town what has been desired for many years, viz., " a run of luck." * - # * They say great indignation is felt at the reply of Mr. Catt, " the Selectors Friend," to the reply of Mr. Solomon in the House when the latter asked if it was the intention of the Gov ernment to assist Mr. Preiss to test his invention for the overcoming of the break-of gauge difficulty. "Yes," Mr. Catt replied, " at his own ex pense." They think as the country, and not the discoverer, would benefit most by the ap plication of the Preiss system to our rolling...

Catholic Picnic at Dawson. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 30 September 1887

Catbolic Picnic at Dawson. The annual Catholic picnic and sports were held at Dawson on Wednesday last, September 28, and on the whole may be considered to have been a success, though there was a great falling off in the attendance compared with other years, owing no doubt to the bad times. This picnic was usually held on St. Patrick's Day, but this year the committee were compelled to postpone the annual celabration to a later date in the hope of meeting with greater success. When it is remembered that in li$85 the net sum of £82 was the result of their labors, and in 1886, the worst year ever experienced in the North, over £20 was cleared. Wednes day's efforts, therefore, cannot be con sidered in any way unsuccessful when it is calculated that about £20 would be netted towards the Dawson Catho lic school fund. The day was all that could be desired, although it was a little cloudy during the early part of the morning. Holy Mass was celebrated at the Mt. Carmel Church at 10.30 a.m. ...

CHAPTER IV.—HARD TIMES. "The heart that dares the ills of life, The hand which grasps the spade, Are grand and matchless in their might With God's great power to aid." —Bradbury. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 30 September 1887

CHAPTER NR.-HARD TIMES. "The heart that dares the ills of life, The hand which grasps the spade, Axe grand and matchless in their might With God's great power to aid." -Bradbury. As soon as the early rains of .April and May had sufficiently softened tke soil John applied himself early and late in cropping his small plot of ground, having during the summer cleared and fenced the land, except the grubbing of a large gum tree that he allowed to remain as shade during the hot season. When he had cleared a part of his land he applied himself to breaking up the virgin soil with, a pick-axe, and was so left for a couple of months in a rough state until it was further softened by the winter rains and until the fencing was completed. Tt was slow work. The gardening was nearly all done before, and after the regular day's work at well sinking, the moonlight evenings were freely employed in putting together the rough, unsightly bush fence that sur rounded the hut and garden plot. It was rough y...

[ALL RIGHTS KBSEBVED BY THE AUTHOR.] "THE FREE LAND:" OR, OUR HOME IN AUSTRALIA. Br FT. BROWNE. Author of " The Children, and How to Manage them," "All About," etc., etc Continuation of CHAPTER in. As soon as John Trevail got his family located he began seeking employ ment, but with many others found that it was extremely difficult to get work of any kind, and many days of fruitless search were spent. Few were engaging laborers; the Wakefield bubble had burst, and the young colony was stand ing still. The gentlemen of the old country, who had bought the land at twelve shillings per acre, when they arrived and saw what they had done how the land had to be cleared and brought under cultivation only by great expense and hard toil, before their great expectations could be realized were discouraged, and many returned home in disgust; while others, waiting to see what would become of the settle ment^ made their temporary residence in what was intended to be the future capital.

Commercial. Petersburg, Friday Morning. I There is no alteration in the wheat market. The highest price now offering is 2s lid, with no prospects of any advance at present. As far as our surrounding districts are concerned the crops are looking remarkably well, still half an inch of rain just now would be welcome, and probably increase the yield a bushel or so an acre. Farmers generally are expecting low prices to rule the coming season. Flour, £9 10s per ton, 21s per bagi pollard Is per bushel; bran lid per bushel.

A LIFE BLIGHTED "Our pleasant vices Are made the whips to scourge us:" —SHAKESPEARE "Guilt is a timorous thing."—COLERIDGE CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 30 September 1887

LIFE BLIGHTED (BY W. 8. H., PETERSBURG.) " Our pleasant vices Are made the whips to scottrge us:" -Sbakbspea-rk' " Guilt is a timorous thing."-Colebxdob CHAPTER IL Five years have elapsed when ouf story begins again. Very trying years they have been. Mr. Plum was furious when he found the use which had been made ef his name. The discovery had not been made antil the absence of Richard from the office led to enquiries* At first he threatened to have him found and brought back if he was still above ground, even though he had to search the wide World, but when his passion went down his common sense came to the top, and he concluded that it would only be throwing good money after bad, and bringing a scandal on the family name. Fossibly Mrs Lap* pington's intercession on her husband's behalf had something to do in the matter, although Mr Plum wouldn't own it. She begged hard for forgiveness for her husband that she might send him word to return, as she might have begged for her life. Bey...

Yongala, September 28. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 30 September 1887

| Yongala, September 28. During the past week or two wheat: has been coming into the town freely, the Milling Company being the principle buyers. They "have secured some large parcels, in one case 1,000 bags in one lot. Trade is very dull, and there is very little money in circulation, and it is likely to continue so till the new crop is reaped, which promises well so far. It is to be hoped that our expectations will not be blighted. Our state school is closed this week for the Michaelmas holidays. The young folks are in high glee. A cricket club is in formation in connec tion with the above school. Shearers are arriving daily for the Yongala Station. The special train that passed through here to-day contained very few' people, and will be a financial loss.

Burra. September 28. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 30 September 1887

Burra. September 28, J During the past week accidents have been to the front here. On Saturday last a man named John Bawling, who is a limeburner residing in Kooringa, whilst leading a horse and cart through the large wooden gates at the back of the Burra Hospital, the wind, which was blowing very strong at the time, slammed the gate with such force as to completely overpower Rawling, who got his left arm jammed between the wheel of the cart and the gate. The poor fellow suffered a great deal before he was got to the doctor. The arm was found to be put out at the elbow joint, and also badly bruised. Notwithstand ing this the sufferer is progressing favorably. On Monday last whilst a boy was riding a blood entire horse belonging to Mr. R, Austin, butcher, of Aberdeen, by some means or other the horse fell, breaking its forearm, at once causing its death. The boy by a miracle escaped injury. On Saturday afternoon last whilst Mr. Eodgers, farmer, of Baldina, was | passing up Kiogston-s...

Dawson. September 24. I On Saturday last a number of the principal townsmen proceeded through the gully to Oodleewirra Station on the Silverton line, to meet the Hon. the Commissioner of Crown Lends on his return journey from Cockburn. It wae their intention to point out to the Commissioner the advisability of having the road through the gully made passable for heavy traffic before the wheat season commences, as the distance from Dawson to the railway by this route is only nine miles, and this being our nearest point we desire our wants should be made known, and it was not until some time had expired after they arrived at the above station that they were informed the ministerial party had passed through on their way to Adelaide at an early hour that morning, therefore the party returned to .
