[ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY THE AUTHOR.] "THE FREE LAND:" OR OUR HOME IN AUSTRALIA. CHAPTER VII.—NEIGHBORS. "Teach me to feel another's woe."—POPE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 November 1887
[Alt BIGHTS KBSEBVED BY THE AUTHOR.] "THE FREE" LAND:" ? i \ OtJK HOME IN AUSTRALIA.. BY O. BROWNE. Author of " The Children, and Hew to Manage them," "All About," etc., etc. CHAPTER TIE.-^IGHBOBS. Teach me to feel another's woe."-POPE. If the little party found it difficult to ascend Sugar-loaf Hill it Was much more so to descend without personal inj ury. They .did not return the same route as they went owing to the slippery nature of the grass, ferns, creepers, and the like that bestrewed the way, making it almost impossible to go down; the deplivity without losing the footing which would end in a headlong fall that would be certain to leave unpleasant con sequences, but by deviating; slightly a better way was found. A few days before the splitters had teen felling trees near the top of the hill, and when the, logs, nine feet in length, from' which rails were to be split, were sawn off they were free to roll down die hillside, and as they were, frequently four or five feet in diam...
Advertising Truths, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 November 1887
Advertising Truths, The road to fortune is paved with printers' ink. "Advertising is to business what steam power is to machinery-the grand, propelling power,"-MACAULAY. '*I was never exactly buried alive," said an old clerk, recounting bis experience, "but lcnce worked a week iu a store that didn't advertise. When I came out my head was as white as you see it now. Solitary con finement did it." You might as well attempt to shampoo an elephant with a thimbleful of soapsuds aa attempt to do business and ignore advertising, A constant dropping will wear a rock. Keep dropping your advertisements on the public and they will soon melt? under it like rock salt. Enterprising people are beginning to learn the value of advertising the year round. The persistency of those who are not in. timidated by the cry of "dull times," will surely place them on the right side in the end. Every day the value of newspaper adver tismients becomes more appareut. A lew days at>o a lost canary bird Hew int...
Selected Poetry. THE GRAND OLD WOODMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 November 1887
Selected Poetry. THE GRAND OLD WOODMAN* ; Amongst Brifctannia's Upaa trees The Grand Old Woodman stands ; A Reformation-axe he wields With firm and skilful hands; . - Thq onslaughtof hismighty arm . ? Mo evil thing withfitand. His iiair is white and skant with age, His brow cm no man span; His forehead's wet with honest sweat, He resfa not when he can. But, looking duty in the face, Toils on, for suffering Man. Year in, year out, from morn to night, His giant power doth greater grow In smiting down some crael wrong, And laying old abnses low; - -While Tories-to their shame '-delight To think his sun of life sinks low. Toiling, rejoicing.trinmphing, Onward through life he goes; For when he hath a task begun He rests not till its close. By patent work, most nobly done, v 'Well hath he earned repose. Glad blessings on thee, Grand Old Friend, Shall always be besonght i For had'st thou Boomed a vigorous life, Nor Freedom's battle fought, Then would thy Native Land have lost The good whic...

The Town of the Future. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 November 1887
The Town oftlie Fntnre, He was a peculiar looking old mail, and was the possessor of only one eye. Anyone who was unacquainted with him would have taken him for a very soft, washy, old individual. There was certainly nothing veiy gay about him or lothario-like, yet he was by no means the sleepy old fossil he looked After wending the even tenor of his way down the main street of the broad gauge town, he stopped opposite an in timation in primitive letters, which set forth land jobbing of all kinds was carried out inside, and also gave the in formation if the agent should not be at home he would most likely be found at the public bar opposite. After the old man had wiped his solitary optic on a blue cotton handkerchief, expectorated at a local fowl, and winked knowingly at the front door panel, he gave a gentle, inoffensive knock, It was answered by a voice bidding him come in; a voice that sounded quite sonorous from the depths of the galvanised iron and quartering which constituted ...

The Petersburg Times. ORROROO CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1887. Administration of Justice. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 November 1887
Ck Hetoburg ©frms, GHROROO CmHiGtE m Xomam ADvonsa. FRIDAY; NOVEMBER 18, Administration of^itstice* The absence of arrangements for the proper conduct of business in connection with the Police, or Justices Court, iflt Petersburg; is disgraceful and it is the ur-j gent duty of the Government, after havingsuccessf ullyopposed the establishment of a Local Court, which would not only have been an act of justice but would have in a great measure remedied the shameful state of affairs, to immediately (1) ap point aClerkto the Justices, (2) appoint" at least two more Justices, (3) arrange for a suit able place for hearing cases. With regard to the first. The appointment of a Clerk could be made under the provisions contained in the last Justices' Act which appears exactly to meet the requirements and neces sities of a town such as Peters burg, where there is no Local Court and a very large Police Court business. Moreover the Justices receive no remuneration for their services, andinadditio...

The Dying Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 November 1887
Tiie Dying Editor. The owner of a paper lay dying in Lis lair, and the dew of death had gathered on his brow so calm and fair; but a printer knelt beside him, as his life-blood ebbed away, and asked the dying writer if he had a word to say. The doomed man murmured softly, as he grabbed the printer's fiat .* .' Well, at last the struggle's over, and I never will be missed. Take a message and a token to that city man of mine, that all his worn-out chestnuts he had better pat in brine* There's his joke about the weather, which he's used these many years, and the gag about the fellow who is always - hunting beers. And the item he's so fond of, on the man who peddles books, and. the chestnut based on people who go fishing at the brooks; just to save the paper's credit, and to cast no slurs on mine, I would ask him as a favor just to pat such gags in brine. And the lies he's fond of telling, of the street-cars and the tracks, the joke about the man who steps upon some tacks, and the one a...
