RECOLLECTIONS OF AN OLD COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 2 April 1914

RECOLLECTIONS:-OF AN OLD S COLONIST, (Br NE?,).) In my last letter an error crept in.. Whether it was a "lapsus penrec" of my own, or the composit:o's fault, I cannot say. However, it is easily rn medied. In speaking of the stumpei's cork I mentioned that lihe often found s me of 'ho mallee broken lff fully seven inches (not feet) from the ground, for saturally.,.anything higher than that, would be levelled to the ground by the crushing weight of the roller. But to coninue: After Ith stump ing was finished, the stump.jumping plouelh (antiober South Australian in. vention) was sot to work. Thise ploughs and the manner in which they negotiate the stumpy ground is another rather difllicult matter to explain in writing, and a person would roally have to see one at work ibefore Ihe could feel satislied that he quite understood them. We will take for example a two furrow rt c' ine (although they are now made three, four, fiver and six furrows, and even eight for a tractioc engine). Each p...

"PEACE WITH GOD." [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 2 April 1914

r. "PEACE.;WITH COD." A s'irring address on the subject "Peace with God," was delivered ty Mr. J. B. Leith, evangelist, in the Oddfellows' Hall, Portland, to a most attontive congregation on Sunday last. The preacher, who is well known and highbly respected by a large section of our citizens, was given the undivided and well merited st'ention of all who were present. We regret want of siace forbids a full report. Mlr. Leith in troduced his message by taking his hearers back to the time of Job, the patriarch, whom God so mysteriously dealt with. One of Job's friends, named Eliphaz, came to comourt Job when he was in deep-trouble,. although he knew a measure of truth conceroirg peace. That wou'd be-comforter failed, as many are failing to-day (whio take the place of leaders of thought) in the social, the political and the religious ur.rest throughout the world. Peace with God is not known by many who are loudly talking from the social, political and re:igious platforms. The socialist ...
