Under the Verandah. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 1 November 1878

Under the Verandah. 'Whatever men do, -or think, or seem, Our motley p»per seizes for its theme.' It becomes monstonous when one bean fo j about tbe naw hundred and ninety-ninth time that the Burra is a miserable-looking plaor. It is in vain I tell visitors that the deplorable met is due to tne inability of occupiers to obtain freeholds. I heartily wish they would make thir complaints to the guilty person, Sir Henry S. A. M. Association. This gentleman, who sports a handle as fire reward of the successful completion of a work to which he was the most zealous opponent is a proprietor of a paper whose aim and object seems to be to misrepresent things in general and Burn affairs in particular. Some weeks ago that journal admitted to its op -n column a garbled version of local matters combineh with a scurrilous and utterly false accusation against the proprietors of the Beccrd.

An Improvement in Tables [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 8 November 1878

An Improvement in Tables The difficulty of packing away a large dining^able in a small compass, when the space is 'wanted for other purposes, has hitherto proved insurmountable,and the inconnence in small houses is often times very great. By the ingenuity of Mr. James Lyle, of Bishopgate and City Road, this difficulty is now entirely overcome, and a table of any ordinary design can be made to fold by simply substiting hinges for fixing the frame work Hitherto secured with tongues and glue. Thus, in unfolding the table it is only necessary to raise it fromtheground when the legs fall by their own weight into a perpendicular position, the frame following ; all that is requisite being to tighten the whole by a couple of cross boards, fixed on the same principle, with screw binges. The space occupied by the table when folded is not more than six or eight inches. There can be no question of the utility of this invention and it is satisfactory to know that the cost of tables so constructe...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 8 November 1878

Leader. — Our leader is crowded out this week. Harvest Prospects. — Since our last issue we have been, favoured with splendid rains which will result in a Large increase in the forthcoming harvest. A little hay may have been spoiled but that is nothing to the benefit to the wheat crops, and even the late ones now lwk well except in some parts of the eastern plain. Baldina and Blight are past recovering except close to the hills where the yield will be good, but we have been shewn some wheat from Mongolata, taken as a fair sample, which was over four feet high with well developed ears just losing the bloom, and which promises a heavy yield if left to ripen, but the rabbits and kangaroos are mak ing havoc in many places, so that the only safe plan is to cut it for hay, especi ally as, owing to the shortness of most of the crops, hay is likely to be high this year.

To the Editor of (he Eecord. Bib— What a pity there is not a little Bommon sense brought to bear upon this Eospital quarrel that is so unpleasantly pro minent iust now. The whole thine is in a nnt shell; Mr. Lipsett and his friends think he ought as Mayor to fea able to eend in to the Hospital any one he pleases but they do net give any ground for their claim. They do not pretend that either they individually nor the corporation subscribe, and while this is the case I for one cannot see what they olaim upon. The fact of the institution receiving Govern ment aid does not argue that the Mayor should have any right, bat only that some one representing the Government should possess it, and that the Believing Officer, and Government Medical Officer have. The Mayoral is not a Government but a Corporate office, and there fore its priveleges mast be paid for by the Corporation. The Mayor has a far simpler remedy for bis grievance than stirring up other Mayors to move the Government; let him...
