Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 13 September 1878

Water Supply. Now that tke summer is rajndly approaching, the importance of_ the water su|-|-ly question is increasing, and we are impelled to ask what Las become of the various schemes that were talked of some four weeks since. It is true that the Government have spoken of including the supply for Burra in the Supplementary Estimates, wbioh have not yet been brought before the House ; but meanwhile we should Uke to know what is being done to further the carrying out of any plan that may be adopted. We do not believe either in' the necessity nor the desirability of a house-to-house supply for the whole town, because many pe: sons do not wish to have any other source than the j: present, they being possessors of good wells ; and not only so in a town so scattered as ours, and covering so great a space it would be both costly and wasteful to carry a pipe to each house. On the other hand we saw, only a week or two since, some persons dipping up with some small vessel into &? bu...

The diaden worn by the Princess was resplendent, vjad several rows .of pearls fell over ths jh voider?, while a row of matchless diamonds encircled her throat.

Automatic Chess Player [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 20 September 1878

Automatic Chess Flayer A Mechanical Chess Player has been constructed by Mr. C. G. Gumpel. It differs . altogether from the so-called automaton figures, which serve only to conceal a living player, and in which til* wheels, 4a, are simply intended to deceive tiie spectator. Mr. Gumpel's Scars is purely mechanical; and is modelled and dressed to resemble the stage Mephistopheles. It is in a sit ting position, tiie right arm and band, vidt which the moves are made, being alone free, and the action igexceedmgij natural, Of course tiie intellectual operations of the chess player are per fonned in another room, mechanically transferred to the figure. How this is done is the inventor's secret, and is certainly most engenioua.
