THE LARGEST KITCHEN IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 20 August 1869

THE LARGEST KITCHEN IN THE WORLD. In former days the kitchen of the London Reform Club, where dinners are prepared in the season for some 400 to 500 gentlemen on an evening, was considered a sort of siglit, and the kitchen establishments of other first class London clubs and hotels may be equally worth looking at. But every kitchen in the world, existing now and having existed before, disappears in magnitude if compared to Liebig's Extract of Meat Company's Establish ment at Fra Bentos, on the River Uruguay, South America. The Buenos Ayres Standard gives the following particulars:-" The new factory is a building that covers about20,000 square feet, and is roofed in iron and glass. We first enter a large hall flagged with the best Scotch flags, kept dark, cool, and extremely clean, where the meat is weighed, and passed through the apertures to the meat-cutting machines. We come to the beef-cutting hall, paved also with Scotch flags, spacious, airy, and well lighted. Here are four pow...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, AUGUST 20,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 20 August 1869

SHte girps. FRIDAY, AUGUST 20,1869. THE subject of immigration is one of great importance to a new and sparsely populated colony like South Australia, and though it comes only fitfully before the general public, it is nevertheless a standing topic of reflection with all who have the interest of their adopted country at heart. At the present time the advisability of resuming assisted immigration is engrossing much atten tion, chiefly in consequence of a motion affirming its necessity having been adopted by the Chamber of Commerce, a body, by-the-bye, composed of manu facturers, capitalists, and others whose worldly prospects would be largely benefited by an influx of cheap labor, and who regard immigration as a panacea for all the ills the colony is heir to. There can be no doubt that, to develop its many resources, South Australia requires population, but decidedly not exclusively of the kind suggested by Mr. Tomkinson, the mover of the reso lution referred to. The class of immi gra...

CLARE ANNUAL PLOUGHING AND DIGGING MATCHES. The annual ploughing and digging matches and show of hone stock in connection with the Clare Agricultural and Horticultural Society took place on Wednesday last, in a section belonging to Mr. Levi Burgess, situate on 1 Stanley Flat, about two miles from Glare. The weather was delightfully fine, which was a great inducement for distant residents to attend, and the result was that a large concourse of people assembled to witness the proceedings. Ihe ploughmen were rather late in making a start; the majority, however, had struck out the scratch furrows fay eleven o'clock. Hie diffi culty experienced by the Committee in obtaining a suitable piece of ground is becoming greater every year, and the piece selected for the present occasion was not all thai could be desired, it having been ploaghed several times previously by the owner, and it was consequently of rather a rough nature.

The following exciting account of the extraordinary discovery of a tragical affair which took place in Nashville, Tennessee, many years since, is given in a newspaper published in that place:-. Thirteen years ago, a man named Jolly, who lived in DeKalb County, was mysteriously made away with after having left his home to visit Nashville. He was tolerably well off, had a beau tiful young wife, whom he had married a year previous to his sudden and final disappearance, and whom he had suc cessfully won from a powerful and per tinacious rival. At the time of Jolly's departure from home he confessed that he had a strange presentiment of impending1 evil, and he passionately kissed his infant boy the morning he was leaving, and even shed tears. His wife was enciente with a second infant, which afterwards proved to be a girl born an orphan. When he was away about a week, his wife and friends became alarmed.

A large number of farmers and others assembled to discuss the subject* amongst whom were several influential gentlemen from Port Wake field, who took a most prominent part in the proceedings.
