DUTTON TOWN. [From our own Correspondent.] April 9. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 April 1878
DTTTTON TOWN. [TProm our own Correspondent.] AprH 9. 1 am almost inclined to think that the clerk of the weather has arranged to give us a second course of summer, for the past few days have been -rery^hot, and the scorching sun is fast drying up the herbage wliicli the few showers we had some time ago had started into growth. The farmers are all. busy with the plough, but in most cases thej find it very hard, dusty •work, and they are wishing for a good fall of rain to facilitate their operations. There seems to be but little interest mani fested respecting the forthcoming election by the electors here, and it would seem as if the feeling is mutual, as I observe that the three candidates first in the field have advertised meetings at all the polling places in the Dis trict with the exception of Dutton Town. Ophthalmia has been very prevalent in this locality, especially amongst the children.

The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 1878. CONSERVATION OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 April 1878
Wi)t Haputttia i^eralU, FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 1878. CONSERVATION OF WATER. Australiaa s a whole (more especially that portion of it known as South Aus tralia) is a dry and. thirsty land, in fact, the scarcity of water is one of its chief drawbacks," militating as it does against the success alike of pastoral and agri cultural pursuits, and almost entirely precluding the establishment of manu factories, except in the most favored districts. There are few parts of the world, more especially mountainous countries, where rivers, are not to be found in greater or less numbers, and of various degrees of magnitude, or where water is not readily procurable by sinking. But in South Australia we are peculiarly unfortunate in this re- J spect; and the majority of our native born rising generation have never seen a river, properly so called, unless they chance to reside within a moderate distance of, or have had Occasion to visit the River Murray, which is really the only river the colony possesses...

Let him at once send for a box of Ilolloway's Pills, which will free him from his sufferings, and speedily renew his healthful feeling. If the bowels be irri table, Kollaway's Ointmsnt should be diligent ly rubbed over the stomach and liver every night and morning.—Advt.

OUR CITY LETTER. [TBrom our own Correspondent.^ Adelaide. April 10, 1878. Tilings generally are dull, tlie weatlier is warm, and from the uncertain state of Euro pean affaire business is depressed. There is not much to be said about tlie elections, ex cept that those for Gumeracha, Barossa, Yatala, and Light are exciting some little in terest, especially the first and last, two as opinion is divided as to wlio -will be the suc cessful candidates. The elections for En counter Bay and "Wallaroo seemed long in being decided, or rather there was consider able delay in mating the final result of the poll known in Adelaide. From the first, however, there seemed no doubt which way the election would go. The Treasurer (the Hon. J. P. Boucaut) was .returned by a large majority at the head of the poll, and Mr. J. L.

THE RACE FOE THE LIGHT PLATE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 12 April 1878
THE RACE FOE THE LIGHT PLATE. The entries for this- race closed yesterday when five nags were nominated. It was at first thought there would have been a larger number, but owing to various circumstances the quintette has not been exceeded. The quality of some of those entered is not so good as those nominated for this trophy at the previous meetings, and this is to be ac counted for by the fact that the local stables have not [contributed their usual quota. Of late years the people in the district hare been gratified by seeing the struggle for this valuable prize contested by high-bred local competitors of acknowledged ability and stamina, whose strength and muscle have at various junctures been developed in- such a manner as to make those who pinned their faith to them exult in the success of their respective favorites, the result being that in nearly every case what the people wagered on these steeds carried off. Therefore there is no wonder that relying on past success achieved b...
