CHAPTER VIII.—NEIGHBORS [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 November 1887
CHAPTER VIII.-NEIGHBOBS- . ' ; | On John's return lie found the neighbors still there,and thelittle woman's tongue still imitating perpetual motion. John's al tering the room caused a short break in the conversation, in. which Clarice had been taking but a listener's place-, except when civility required a reply. Riley roseto go, but on his wife's exclaiming - "Why, what's your'urry?" and being asked by his mate to stay a bit longer, he consented to do so, and took his seat in the chimney corner and quietly puffed clouds of smoke, whilst he sat with legs across, his right hand held the short clay pipe between the first and second fingers, whilst the elbow of that limb rested upon the right knee, with the left hand holding the elbow like a socket joint. In this attitude he sat till his pipe was emptied-the weed having a soothing effect -whilst the rattle of his wife s glib member being so familiar to his ear did not disturb him in the least, but, on the contrary, he might have been u...

(Continued) Whilst Mr Diirrant was en gaged in giving a brief, rapid, and graphic description of the danger escaped by Clarice Mrs Riley employed herself in trying to fan her by moving her apron rapidly, as little girls have often been seen fanning a slow lire.

After a few minutes of inaction Clarice expressed her gratitude to Mr Durrant and sought the repose of her own tiny room where she could bathe her face and remain unnoticed. Scarcely had the door closed be hind her when Mrs Riley gave further vent to her excited feel ings by exclaiming " The dear young lady, I hope she'll soon be all to rights.

City Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 November 1887
City Gossip. BY A. TALKER. They say it is an astonishing fact for the grass on the northern part of Mount Lofty flange' to remain green until the middle of Sovember. It shows what a wet season we have been having. They say the Friendly Societies' Demon stration on the 9th was a great success as regards numbers, and likewise as regards the quality of the sports. The riding of Davis, our champion cyclist, was a treat to see. Tliey say the Governor was loudly cheered when, at the Mayor's banquet, he stated that if the Queen did not confer the honor of knighthood upon Mr E. T. Smith it would not be ON account of the viceregal personage not reminding the' occupant of the Throne what great benefit the Mayor had conferred upon the nation. They say the season has been an excellent one for the growth of flowers, and the garden, j in and around the city are sights worth seeing They say the Mayoral robes are going a-b^gging for a wearer, the present Mayor having determined not to re-offer hims...
Bearding the Lion. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 November 1887
Bearding the Elon. 1A.6H. The editor of t^e Sand Hills Banner had just finished . off an , article on '? Modern Vices," and was laying back comfortably on the editorial lounge, meditating on th$^ scientific style in whidhhe had treated the subject, when a young man stepped into the literary j sanctum with a bundle of manuscripts under his arm. ii was very evident that he had not been in the habit of paying visits to sucih a privileged per son as the editor of a newspaper, for he made himself quite at home. After throwing a light coat across the end of the lounge, and blowing his nose rather sonorously, he stepped right up to the side of the gentleman who ran the local sheet. " Morning," said he confidently, " I've just brought along a few sheets here, and if you'd look at them I should feel obliged. I just wantfto know if there's any merit in' them, you know." There was evidently something wrong, an impediment in his speech, may be, at any rate, his utterance was thick, to say the l...

Reviews. Fort PtAY, OK THE DODGEKY OF THB ; t)o»ofeas, froia W. H. Hardy, Burra.-This leaflet deals with the Land Question and in no measured terms denounces private ownership. From it we quote the following:-Private ownership in land is one of the chief causes of our discontent. The landowner regards his own private interests as paramount, but not withstanding all the ciap-trap used by the interested spoilers, I maintain that if the; State were the owners of the land the public interests would be the paramount considera tion, In reference to protection we hear so much about, and which will cost so much, what is it, and who will it protect ? I main tain as a writer to a late number of the " Commonwealth" puts it:-That it cannot raise wages or secure to all constant employ ment, so it cannot be said to benefit the wage earners. It is simply a scramble be tween a few capitalistic employers t© gain advantages, for which the rest of the commu nity will have to pay. Wages are no higher, ...

Advertising Truths, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 November 1887
Advertising Truths, The road to fortune is paved with printers' ink. ." Advertising is to business what steam power is tj machinery-She grand, propelling power,"-MAGAULAY. "I was never exactly buried alive," said an old clerk, recounting his experience, "but l once worked a week in a store that didn't advertise. When I came out my head was as wnite as you see it now. Solitary con finement did it." You might as well attempt to shampoo an elephant with a thimbleful of soapsuds as 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 sale. Quitting advartising in dull times is like tearing out a dam whon the water is low. Either plan will prevent good times from coming. Enterprising people are beginning to learn the value of advertising the year round. Tbe persistency of those who are not in* timidated by the cry of "dull times," will surely place them on the lig...

Correspondence. THE MAYORALTY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 November 1887
correspondence. THE MAYORALTY. TO THE EDITOE. SIR,-The tactics pursued by some of the supporters of Mr Threadgold for re-election as Mayor cannot bfe commen ded because, instead of basing their support on his fitness for the office and acting straightforwardly by stating they prefer him to Mr Copinger, they go about their canvass in a singularly roundabout manner, seeking to hum bug the ratepayers into the belief that it is in Mr Copinger*s own interests as well as in that of the town that he should not be elected. Nothing can be more absurd than this, for in the first place we must give Mr Copinger cre dit for knowing his own business best, and I confidently deny that he will lose anything by becoming Mayor, for it must be apparent that while at first he might be the loser of a few pounds by not being able to act for or against the Corporation, yet, on the other hand, the very fact of his election by the majority of the ratepayers will so demonstrate their confidence in him that su...

To the Producers of South Australia. [CONTRIBUTED]. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 November 1887
Ho iBie Producers ofSouili Australia, fc ONTRI BUTKT>3. After a superficial and farcical debate the Upper House has committed the country to a policy of the greatest im portance, of which many believe that it "will augment our population, foster in dustries, and re-establish prosperity, such as the colony has enjoyed in times ]past; but ia the truth they have accep ted a tariff of which the effect is to in crease by heavy taxation the cost of thfe dailj requirements of life. It is not our intention to discuss the vexed ques tion of freetrade v. protection but we deny that that question has been settled by the passing of the present tariff. It is now admitted by it's supporters that the tariff is not a protective one, and that it cannot accomplish what it's in tention was. But we would ask the question-what can We expect of a government and a legislation which has neither principle nor aim. The neces sity for a juster form of taxation has been acknowledged for years. In past elect...
