The Kapunda Herald. TUESDAY, MAY 21, 1878. THE KAPUNDA WATER-WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 21 May 1878

Cf)t Hapuntia HeraUr, TUESDAY, MAT 21, 1878. THE KAPUNDA WATER WORKS. Kapunda people are certainly a long-suffering, patient section of the community. As was well remarked by some of the members who sup ported the carrying of the Water works Bill, the wonder was that the construction of these works had not been earlier asked for and sanctioned. Throughout the debate, too, it was the evideut impression that as the requirement was urgent the work should be undertaken forthwith, and indeed in answer to Mr. Nock it was promised that as soon as the Loan Bill by which provision was made for defraying the cost had been passed, tenders would be called for the work. But Ministerial promises, like the pie-crust spoken of in the proverb, appear to be made simply to be broken, for though it had been stated that everything was in readiness at that time, so far tenders have not been invited. This is a serious grievance. IT ad the work been commenced early this year it would have now been in so fo...

Hollo way s Pills.—Sudden change, fre uent fogs, and prevailing d ampness sorely impede the vital functions and conduce to ill health. The remedy for such disorders lie in some purifying medicine, like the Pills, which is competent to grapple successfully with the mischief at its source, and stamp it out with uot fretting the nerves or weakening the system. Holloway's Pills extract from the blood all noxious matter, regulate the action of every disorderd organ, stimulate the liver and kidneys and relax the bowels. In curing chest com plaints these Pills are remarkably effective, especially when aided by a free local application \ of the Ointment.

NORTH-WEST BEND TOWN-SHIP SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 21 May 1878

NOBTH-WEST BEND TOWN SHIP SALE. We firmly believe that the township of Morgan "will eventually become a place of.. considerable importance—that it will in feet become one of" the busiest shipping places on. the river. This opinion is shared by Kapunda. people generally, and the desire to secure a block _ suitable for business purposes led a r.uxnber of our tradespeople to visit the Bend lately so as to make themselves acquainted •with the locos in quo. The same desire led. them to flock down in somewhat large num bers to the Government Offices on Thursday last, on the- occasion of the sale of the first; moiety of the town as already laid out, they generally .speaking being prepared to give what they considered to be rather high prices for the blocks on which they had fixed their choice. They found the saleroom thronged ■with eager buyers from all parts of the country, and it soon became evident that the blocks were going to fetch prices far away above what the Kapunda folks had fixe...

OUR CITY LETTER. JTProm our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, May 20, 1878. I n.m sure you and your readers -will be pleased to .learn one piece of news brought by the Mail—Sir W. F. D. Jervois has taken berths for himself, Lady Jervois, and their family on board the steamer Lusitauia, to sail from London June 28. He will be heartily welcomed back to South Australia. ' The extraordinary passage made by the mail steamer Siam is the quickest on record, being only 15 days 12 hours from Galle, giv ing us English letters on the thirty-sixth morning after they were written. Truly the establishment of the Orient Direct Line has had a great effect in waking up the P. & O. Company. It is expected that the result of the Cable Conference will be satisfactory in more ways than one. A duplicate cable will be laid from Port Darwin direct to Singapore, avoiding Batavia; the charge on press messages will be reduced to 75 per cent; and measureis are being taken to improve our land line, so as to...

A LIFE ASSURANCE YARN. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 21 May 1878

A LIFE ASSURANCE YARN". We have not taken the following from any insurance journal, and we question whether its actual occurrence would be redited by the Institute of Actuaries:— " It is not generally known that the late millionaire, Mr. Pea body, made the basis of his colossal fortune as a lion-tamer. Being"of an acute and discerning mind, and also of a frugal disposition, he resolved on insuring hiB life out cf the proceeds of his earnings. He received a large salary for his dangerouB employment, and had no difficulty in paying the necessary pre mium. His magnificent muscular develop ment and splendid physique easily passed the discerning eyes of (he examining phy sicians, and he was recommended as a first-class ritk. In this way he effected three policies of 10.000 dollars each, and it was a comfort to him every time he en tered the den to know that if the lions ate him up his aged mother need not take in washing. One day, however, there was a grand procession, of which Mr. Feabo...

A NOVEL SNAKE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 21 May 1878

A NOVEL SNAKE STORY. " Beware of pickpockets!" replied the benevolent old gentleman, as he glanced at a placard posted in the car in which he was riding. " Dear me, how sad that such a warning should be necessary in a Christian land!" " Yes, sir," said a young man next him; " But it's best to be careful, for there may be pickpockets in this very car. I know all about that, sir. I've been res cued from the lowest depths. I was a pickpocket once, sir." "Dear me," said the old gentleman, starting. " I'm a respectable person now. Yes, sir, I'm very respectable, Ask anybody about Jim Tilks, and they'll tell you that; but I was brought up a thief. I was born among thieves, and took to the trade naturally, and I used to pick pockets when I was ten years old. You needn't look at yours. If you please, sir, I've been con verted, and go to meeting regular. You could trust me with untold gold now. " But, as I said, I was a thief, and might have been one yet if it hadn't been for what happened a...

A WAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 21 May 1878

A WAKE. Tim Scanlan, while he lived, was only a labouring man; but he was well liked in the country; and it was expected his funeral would be an unusually large gathering. Orowds flocked to the wake, and a great provision of tea, whisky, pipes, and tobacco had been made. The widow occupied her post of honour at the head of the coffin, and displayed a fair show of grief, joining in with vociferous weeping whenever the " keening " was led by the elder women. She wn? voung enough to have been the dead man's daughter, hav ing come to his house a " slip " of a ser vant girl, whom he had married and ruled over very masterfully. As the night wore on, the whisky began to tell on those outside the room where the corpse lay. The noise increased and soon became loud enough to " wake the dead," as the saying is ; for, to the consternation and amazement of every one present, the defunct, after a deep sigh and sundry groans, opened his eyes and struggled up to a sitting posture. When the startled...

ROLLING ROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 21 May 1878

BOLLING EOTJinD. Is there, or is there not, coal in South Aus tralia ? That is a question which has at various tiroes in our history agitated the public mind. Professor Tate has recently lectured on the subject, but whatever liia opinions may be, they hare nothing •whatever to do with a rather good story which lias for a long time been hidden from the knowledge of all save a few men, and might have lay so hidden till doomsday but for -the accident occurring whereby your straggling "h&rtist" heard a little bird " The plain unvarnished tale unfold," which did not, however, " Make each particular hair stand on end," but rather to hold his sides in case an acci dent should occur and necessitate the holding of a coroner's inquest, and thus prevent others knowing a great secret as to the sup posed discovery of a coal mine in the neigh bourhood of Blanclietown, which has just now been brought to Light. The parties who were gulled into the belief that this El Dorado of a coal mine e...

FREELING. [From our own Correspondent.] May 15, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 21 May 1878

rBEELING. [From our own Correspondent.] May 15, 1878. I have to record another Exedus from this important township, in the person of Mr. A- S. Martin, .storekeeper (the oldest business in the township), and his respected family. He has disposed of his business to Mr. Jefferson, of Adelaide. Mr. Martin has been residing in this district for the last fourteen, years. For some years past he has been the Deputy Heturnin g-0 ffieer for the District of I/ight. He "was ever ready to assist in any good movement that was mooted, and will be missed by many. So far as we have seen of Mr. Jefferson, we have every reason to believe that he will have a worthy successor. Mrs. Martin will be much missed, for her kind and noble heartedness have won for her the affec tion of many; her name will be cherished as a household word for years to come. The family took their departure for Adelaide by the last train on Wednesday. Many of the townsfolk went to the station to bid them adieu. It was thought that...

THE FARMER'S WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 21 May 1878

THE FABMER'S WIFE. The farmer came in from the field one day; TTi"k languid step and his weary way, His bended brow, his sinewy hand. All showed his work for good of the land. For he sows, And lie hoes, And lie mows, All for the good of the land. By the kitchen fire stood his patient wife, tight of his home and joy of his life, With face all aglow and busy hand, Preparing the meal for her husband's band; For she must boil, And she most broil, And she must toil, All for the good of the home. The bright sun shines when the former goes out, The birds wing sweet songs, lambs frisk about;. The brook bubbles softly in the glen ; While he works so bravely for the good of men; Vot he sows, And he mows, And he hoes, All for the good of the land. How brightly the wife steps about from within The dishes to wash and the milk to skim; The fire goes out, flies buzz about— For the dear ones at home her heart kept stout: There are pies to make, There is bread to bake, And steps to take, All for the...

Sir—I am glad to see by your issue of the 7th. inst. that you include me amongst those who have the good of the Hospital at heart. There are very few persons who would not ■wish, success to an institution established, as this is, for humane and benevolent purposes. X have no other apology to offer for troubling you and the public with these letters than the importance of the. subject on which I write. I have taken on myself the liberty of point ing out to the Board of Management things connected with the Sospital which I believe do militate seriously against its best interests. The principal of those is that which relates to medical cliarges. On this subject the public and the Board of Management do not under staand each other.

OUR LONDON LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] London, April 11,1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 21 May 1878

OUR LONDON LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] London, April 11,1878. All the world is praising Lord Salisbury's despatch, but not all for the same reasons. The strongest philo -Russians must admit the extreme clearness of style and the masterly manner in which the new Foreign Secretary has told an intricate tale. If perspicuity in despatch writing is to save the country from war, then we may congratulate ourselves that the peace will not be broken. Unfortunately perspicuity is only another word for speaking one's mind, and that, as a rule, is not a pacific course. Studying this very able document, we see how fundamental is the objection of the Government to the Treaty of San Stefano. So far from having broken with Eiussia upon a question of mere diplomatic etiquette they have scarcely two ideas in common. If, as may be taken for granted, the Russian Go vernment jwas acquainted with the ideas of our own, we can well understand how it is that Russia should shrink from laying the wh...
