Orroroo. October 26. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 October 1887

Orroroo. J October 26. I deeply regret having to record the occurrence of a painful accident yester day morning to the wife of Mr- G-. Harding, a well-known and highly respected farmer of Blackrock, whereby during the superintendence of culinary operations, she was so severely burnt about the legs and lower portions of the body as to render her condition extremely critical. I am pleased to learn that she is getting on as favorably as can be expected from the fearful shock sustained by the accident. The occurrence is rendered doubly noticeable from the fact of Mr Harding having so nearly lost his life a short time ago through an accident, the effects of which he has not recovered yet. Much genuine sympathy is expressed; with both Mr and Mrs Harding over the painful mishap. I am delighted to be able to state that a glorious rain is failing at the time of writing (10 p.mj, which commenced with light showers at about mid-day and has been raining ever since, and now gives promise of cont...

Old Associations. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 October 1887

Old Associations* BY BKASH. What timallf insignificant, every day sur roundings strike at times a chord within oar fratries which vibrates, fcettingoth'er strings in motion that bring up visions of a past decade, and which have the power of influencing onr future lives and actions. Perhaps a favorite tune will revive some old associations, and it in its tarn something eke, tiil such a brain of thought takes fire like fuse, and run through the tissues of our brain. Sometimes I have been in the meshes of some colossal problem, threshing ont the intellect as it were, to find its rarest jewelst when lo, the gaze rests on some long for - gotton relic, and like the enchanted wand, changes ail; and brings along such a flood of pleasant memories of days gone by (happy days viewed from the present) that ail our scheming and planning is arrested for. the time. Then lightning-like from one memory to another till the old home is conjured up,' and then when one gives himself up dreamily to "plea...

The Tariff. MEETING AT ORROROO. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 October 1887

Til© Tariff. MEETING AT ORROROO. A largely attended and influential meeting, called by the local branch of the Farmers' Association, was held on Monday night, Mr. E. Copley presiding. Mjt H. Bambrick, a farmer, moved " That in the opinion of this meetiug the tariff-passed by the House of Assembly is detrimental to the best interests of the colony, being grossly unjust both to producer and consumer, and that an unfair advantage has been taken of the constituencies by attempt ing to impose such heavy hardens without a direct appeal to the country." In common with the far users of tbat and the enrrouoding neighbourhood he had viewed -with macb anxiety the rain .that must surely follow upon the passing of the Bill. bne item the Premier had endeavored to protect was twine. Ti^e tariff would only. benefit bacon, cheese* &C|, prodncers at the expense of every one else. It would not benefit the workman, but only the wealthy landholder. 1 Referring to the establishment of a hat facto...

Correspondence. FREE TRADE & PROTECTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 October 1887

Correspondence, FREE TRADE & PROTECTION. TO 1"HE EDITOR. SIR,-As one of your, townsmen, but not frequently with you, kindly allow me a say on the question ef protection and freefcrade. which arose at your meeting called to uphold or condemn (and I was glad to see condemned) the present Tariff. As usual, fable fighters were to be found for the manufacturers and for the importers, but not one fighter for the jpeople ! The protectionists study the interests of the first named ; the fair traders the second ; the freetraders the people. A protectionist is known by the higher tax he would put on out siders' productions, a fairtrader- a protectionist in reality, only differing from ' a prohibitionist in degree-is known by the lesser tax he would put on, and the freetrader is known by being an abolitionist, as regards the customs. The last named is the fighter for freedom in its true sense for the consumer and producer; no half measures ; freedom! pure and simple ; liberty of the ma...

Pickings, It has beennoticed that a girl who has graduated from Vassar and liad 25,000 dols. spent on her education will, after marriage, hold clothespins in her mouth and gossip over the back fence while hanging out tike washing just like other women. You can't change a woman's nature. A young man at college wrote as follows to his father: "My dear father, 1 have only tinae-beinggreatly rushed with my studies-to send my love and tell you that I wish you would send me 50 dols." The father replied-" My dear son, I have only time-being greatly rushed with my hay-to send love and tell you that I have notsent you 50 dols." " George," said the president of a Virginia railway to his f secretary, " are those pamphlets descriptive of the scenery along our route ready to send out yet?" "Yes, sir; all ready."

CBR PETERSBURG Ciutts, CBBOROOCHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1S87. The Municipal Elections. The time for the annual Muni cipal Elections is fast approach ing, the first of December being the day appointed for electing jtjhe Mayor, Auditor and Coun cillors who retire according to l^,w, and as the nominations for filling these vacancies must be lodged seven days before that date, it behoves all ratepayers havin<r the welfare of the town at heart to lose no time in satisfying themselves that their names are on the roll so that they may be qualified to record their votes. That so little interest is dis played in this, the most impor tant .event to ratepayers in the Municipal year, is indeed re markable, more especially when; Ave consider that some dissatis-i faction has been evinced at the i want of energy and enterprise shown by the present Council' in carrying out their duties,! and while we do not express any opinion as to whether such is well found...

Catholic Picnic at Petersburg. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 November 1887

Catholic Picnic U Peforsburg. A most successful Catholic Picnic was held on Tuesday last, November 1, on the grounds of Mr It. Cochrane, at Petersburg. This celebration, which has no w become an annual event, attracted a crowd qui:e as good as in years p»«st- It was calculated that over four hundred passed through the gates during the day- The weather was not in any wvay favorable, for the wind, which blew from the North all day, was anything but pleasant, and an occasional shower of dust which it brought in its tram could not have been acceptable to the pleasure seekers. However, every one seemed to enjoy the day's outing, and'in the excitement of watching the .sports the disagree ableiiess of the day was not considered. The object for which this gathering was convened was to raise funds in aid of the Catholic Church building fund. Holy Mass was celebrated in the morn ing at eight o'clock, and at half-past ten mass was sung by Father Dumphy, the choir singing Webbe's mass in a very...

THE CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 November 1887

THE CONCERT. In the evening of the same day a Concert was given in the Institute Hall by ladies and gentlemen from the surrounding townships, at which there was a large and appreciative audience. Selections from Norma by Messrs Ingio, on the violin, and Miano, on the harp, opened the proceedings and well deserved the! applause*" which was so liberally bestowed, Miss McMahon's overture, " Murmurs of Ocean," was well received and the audience were also greatly pleased with Miss M. McGiJlick's rendering of " When my Rover comes again," but she is heard to better advantage in her more homely songs. Mr. Okely sang " Could you lend my mother a Saucepan" in a very unnatural and semi-comic style, while Miss Woods, who sang " Twickenham Ferry," has the sweetness of voice to please and attract, but requires more experience and self-possession. "Quips the Quaker" was very.well rendered by Mr J. McDowell, who was deservedly recalled. There was no expression in Miss Naughton's playing of '* Echo...
