Advertising Truths. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 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 Ms experience, "but 1-r.nce worked a week in a store that d dn t advertise. . When I came out my head was as white as you see it-now. Solitary con finement did it." 'Y«u' 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 ' pnblic and they will soon melt under it like lock salt.

The North-east Country. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 November 1887

Tlie North-east Country. We extract the following from an ! article furnished by the agricultural editor of the Register to that paper. The narrator after describing the crops between Adelaide and Petersburg goes on to say: At Petersburg we change carriages, and proceed by the Silvertoa line eastwards. To Dawson's Crossing the distance is 8 miles, first over a rise. There was a very apparent change for the worst in the crops immediately upon leaving Petersburg. They were thinner and shorter, and a good many fields were being cut for hay, The soil is calcareous, with clay, slate, and ironstone rises, mostly of a dry loose character. The vegetation consists of various grasses, tussock grass, Banana, pines, Erenaophila maculata, sandalwood, peppermint, gums, malles, &c. The conntry is undulating, with open grassy flats, and a reddish soil on the lower lands. From Darwin across to Oodla-Wirra, 8 miles, is over mallee rises, with a deep reddish loam upon limestone rubble. There w...

Correspondence. THE COUNCIL CHAMBER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 November 1887

Correspondence. THE COUNCIL OEL4MBER. TO THE EDITORI Snt,-The question of the Mayoralty and election of the Council does not seem to agitate the minds of our towns men to the extent that the circumstances of the case would seem to demand. Perhaps it is difficult to " enthuse" the spirits of men in these Sleepy Hollows; of the North. Here, too, may lie the, meaning and object of the occasional1 slight shocks of earthquake felt in these; regions. Who knows the objects aj kind Providence may have in view ? The " perky" disposition, however, which Petersburg has evidenced in 'asking for greater consideration at the hands of the Government in minor matters, makes one wonder just a little that now when the immediate matter of local administration is brought to the fore, others do not try to emulate our friend Mr Touchefl's example,in his pub lic spirited disposition, and show their fellows the way. Of course, Petersburg is to be the great Northern centre ot the future, whatever carping cr...

Clippings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 November 1887

Clippings. A .JOINT ANGLICAN AND ROMAN FUNCTION,-Some time ago there was a considerable fuss made as to the conse cration of the colors of an Irish regi ment by a Roman Catholic chaplain at Davenport, and orders were issued by the war office that this ceremony should be performed by the Anglican chaplains as heretofore. On the occasion of the presentation of new colors by the Marchioness of Londondery at the Curtagh camp of the 5th Battalion of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers a few days ago it was arranged by the chaplains, in conjunction with the military authori ties, that a joint service should be held. Accordingly, having been formed up in square and the new colors placed on the impromptu altar formed by the drums of the corps, the Rev* F. Sadleir, senior military chaplain in Ireland, and the Rev. F. B. N. Norman Lee, chaplain of the Curragh Brigade, and their Roman Catholic colleague, the Rev. L. Dillon, vested alike in short surplice, cassock, stole, and biretta, entered the square...

HINTS TO FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 December 1887

HINTS TO FARMERS. The following ten axioms of agriculture ahonld be remembered by all farmers. (1.) No lands can be preserved in a high state of fertility unless clover and the grasses are captivated in the conrse of rotation. (2.) Deep ploughing greatly improves the pro> ductive power of a variety of soils that are not wet. (3.) Sab-soiling soaad lands, that is, land that is not wet, is eminently con ducive to increased production* (4.) All wet land should, be drained. (5.) Draining of wet lands and marshes adds to their value by making them produce more and better crops, and producing them earlier. (6.) To manure or lime wetlands is to throw manure, lime, and labor away. (7.) Periodical ap plication of ashes tends to keep np the con dition of soils by supplying most, if not all, inorganic substancee. (8.) Thorough pre paration of land is absolutely necessary to the successful and healthy growth of grops. (9.) Abundant crops cannot be grown for a succession, unless care be taken...
