Burra. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 7 October 1887
Hurra. The weather is all that can be desired plenty of rain and sunshine in the daytime. It is a most exceptional season for this part of the country; grass is over a foot high about the town, and all kinds of plant life is looking marvellous. The other day a man came into the town on a gray pony, which it appears was stolen from Gawler, but before our local police got the news of the theft the man sold the animal for £i and the saddle and bridle for £1, and. cleared out. It is expected he has made for"' the Barrier, but up to the present nothing further has been heard of him. A cake fair took place at our local Institute on Wednesday evening last in aid of the Jubilee Avenue fund. A good attendance resulted, and some creditable cookery was' exhibited. The proceeds were very good. Much discontent is manifest here in refer ence to the tariff proposals of the Govern ment, and a meeting is to be held on Friday evening to consider the matter. About 500 children are to leave here on Fri...

HARD TIMES IN A STRANGE COUNTRY. -" A bold peasantry, their country's pride, When once destroyed can never be supplied." -GOLDSMITH. During the following year John Travail's vegetable garden had much improved .as the soil became more fertile when thoroughly pulverised and the surface vegetation had rotted. It was well that it was so, as the prices of food and clothing became very high, especi ally of the former, and famine prices were obtained for flour and mutton. Within two years after the arrival the climax was reached. The speculation in town allotments had ceased; many of those who had the means returned home, but none of the immigrants had the necessary money, and the starvation point was almost reached. The Go vernment in a few instances supplied food to the most needy. Those who had commenced ho...
The Petersburg Times, CRRORDO CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1887. Distributive Co-operation. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 7 October 1887
Cfrc Ipetolmrg Cimcs, OBROROO CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1887. Distributive Co-operation. The present time is certainly teeming with, projects of a reformatory character, still the ; prominent evils of our universal j systems of trade have ap parently failed to attract the attention of social reformers, excepting a few enthusiasts who have for years fought hard to reduce the burdens imposed upon the consumer by the passage through many hands of the majority of the articles of which the world's commerce is composed. And when we note the fact that about half the population of the earth gains a livelihood by passing on com modities which the other half has produced and manufactured we must recognise the heavy reduction of the value of the article produced-as affecting the producer on the one hand -and the great addition to cost as touching the last purchaser -that is the consumer-on the other hand. Probably some person will remark-"Over production has caused ...

Petersburg Agricultural Society. President-P. A. Callary, Esq., J.P.; Vice-President-M. C. Oopin ger, Esq.; Patrons-W. Copley, Esq,, MX.C-, and E. Watd, Esq., M.P, ANNUAL SHOW. . The annual stow of the above society, was held on Friday last in the grounds. Ol Mr R. Cochrane, Petersburg. The weather early in the day was all that could be desired but towards noon the dust commenced to blow, thought but little inconvenience was felt from this cause in the show grounds. As regards attendance the show may be considered a decided success, about 500 persons entering the gates through the day. Tn referring to the exhibits we cannot do so without expressing regret at the very small number of entries in some of the classes. Had it not been for one or two exhibitors - notably, Mr W. Waters, of Yongala, Mr W. Howard, Mr A. Boutell, and Mr E. Perkins some of the classes would not have been represented at all, whilst had the fore going not competed the show "would have been deficient indeed. Our ...

The Orroroo SHow [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 7 October 1887
Tfie Orroroo iSbow The sixth annual show of the Orroroo Agricultural Society was held on Wednesday last on the society's grounds, adjacent to the township, and expectations as to a large attendance of exhibitors and visitors were fully realised, about 1,500 persons being present. The Comauttee are to be con gratulated for their energy, and great praise is due to the Secretary, Mr. A. T. Beck, for his uniformly courteous treatment of those who had business with him on show day, and for the great assistance he rendered those re quiring it. Noticeable amongst the improve ments on the grounds were the trees around the inside of the fence, and dust shutters added to the pavillion especially the latter, which enabled the exhibits in this building to be shown with much less chance of re ceiving damage from the heat and dust than at previous shows. The weather was showery during the morning, r but the ? sun shone out after one o'clock and the whole after noon was beautifully fine. The faces...

ENTERTAINMENT IN THE EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 7 October 1887
ENTERTAINMENT IN THE EVENING. In the evening an entertainment was given In the Institute Hall, in aid of the show funds, by the Jubilee Christy Minstrels. There was a crowded house, bat those who went in the expectation of a treat certainly came away disappointed. The orchestra consisted of Messrs Watt, Bowe, Holland, and Carter and these sustained their respec tive parts in a very creditable manner. The ballad "Silver Threads" was Bong fairly well by Mr Williams, but the comic song M Hen's Convention," by Mr Browning, which followed it, hardly deserved the amount of applause bestowed upon it by the audience. " Little Footsteps" was sung by Mr Kentish but failed to arouse applause. Mr Budland gave " Short and Long" which was well received, while Mr Berxy was not heard to advantage in "See that my Grave's kept green." The most successful item in the first part was the comic song by Mr Steinthal/'If I only knew how it was done," and this was worthy of the encore it received, though th...

Commercial. Petersburg, Friday Morning. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 7 October 1887
Commercial. Petersburg, Friday Morning. There is nothing new to report in the -wheat market. Buyers appear to have j sufficient stocks on hand, and the un&lt; precedentedly low prices realising in England are not very encouraging to farmers. Hie highest price offering for fine samples is 2s lO^cL Since our last report we have been favored with nice rain which will have the effect of adding another bushel or two to the acre, and will also counteract the effect of the nasty, hot, dry winds of a few days previously. It is the opinion of those in the trade that farmers will have to be satisfied with about 2s Bd per bushel for the coming crop at stations a good dis tance from ports. Flour is selling at i9 5s pep ton, 21s per bag, brail 10Jd, pollard, lid.
