Black Rock. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 December 1887

Black flock. On December 2nd the first load of this season's wheat was sold and delivered at Black Bock. It was a splendid sample and Was grown on the farm of Mr A. Forest. The yield was about 16 bushels to the acre. This was grown at the foot of the ranges on the eastern side of the plain. On the plains the crops will be far away from the above yield, being affected greatly by the frosts of October, bat the grain will be good. The weather for . the past fortnight has been very ttnpropitious for farming operations. Reaping will be in full swing as soon as the hot weather commences.

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 December 1887

Advertising Troths, ? - - - - - 1 « ' . The road to fortuneis paved with, printers' ink. " Advertising is'to business what' steam power is ti machinery-thegrand, propelling power,"-MACAULAY. "I was never exactly buried alive,'' i8&id an old clerk, recounting his experience, "but lonce worked a week in a store that didn't advertise. When I came out my head was : as white as you see it now." Solitary Con finement did it." You 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. Seep dropping your advertisements on the public and they will soon melt under it like xock salt. Quitting advertising in dull times is like r tearing out a .dam whoh the water is low. Either plan will prevent good . times from coming. Enterprising people are beginning to learn the value of advertising the year round.

Pamatta. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 December 1887

Paniaua. On Saturday evenitig, 26 "h iost., a .public j^noeting was held in the Pamatta store to consider the advisability of petitioning Parliament to reduce the annual rentals of selectors' leases. Tftere was a very good attendance, and Mr W. K. Ghrimes, who vas voted ti the chair, briefly stated the object -of the meeting, and said he believed that the people of Johnsburgh, Minhurra, and Coonatto had got up petitions similar to tbe one proposed. He thought that tbe Pamatta farmers were entitled to a reduction of their rents, as they lived in a very nnfortnnate district for- wheat grow ing. Tn a conversation which he recently had with Mr Burgoyne, that gentleman led him - to hope that such a petition might be success ful-and he hoped if would be. Mr H. Horton then proposed, "that in the opinion of this meeting 3d. per acre is too much retyt for land in this district, and that Parliament be asked to reduce the rent to Id p^r acre.'" Mr Bock -seconded-the resolution, which was carri...

The Petersburg Times, ORROROO CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1887. The Chinese in Australia, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 December 1887

CJRE IPTTFRSBRUNJ ©TINTS, ORBOROO CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISES. FRIDAY; DECEMBER 9, 1887. The Chinese in Australia* An Anti - Chinese Meeting has recently been held in Ade laide, the prime mover in which appears to have been a Mr Potts, who travelled all the way from Brisbane with the object of working up a "righte ous" feeling of indignation with respect to the presence of the Chinese in Australia. As usual when interested parties allow their zeal to get the better of their judgment there were the usual untruths combined with the' suppression of important facts, and the fallacious argu ments indulged in by many speakers resulted in the passage of the usual resolutions declar ing that the Chinese are the vilest and most degraded beings it is possible to imagine, and that they are ruining the coun try.. To the fair impartial observer it is, however, apparent that the conclusions arrived at by this meeting are not borne out by the facts, whilst some are positively disproved, but,...

A Curiosity in Railroads. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 December 1887

A Curiosity in Railroads, The early explorers who more than 70 years ago crossec. the Blue Mountains in New South Wales did their work well. They struck the bes possible route. Bullock drays followed the track discovered by Wentworth and his comi panions. The present railway line to the Western Plains runs close to the old road. On the summit of the range between Katoomba and Govett's Leap is an aged gum tree, which over hangs the highway. It is pro tected by a wall and iron rail ings, and a stone bears the in scription that these were erected by Mr. J. Si Farnell, Minister of Lands, to perpetuate the memory of Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth,. this "being the furthest point reached in their first attempt to cross the Blue Mountains, in May, 1813. The trees blazed by the explorers determined the route of the high road to Bathurst and the pastoral country beyond. And the railway runs close to this historic tree, which it is to be hoped will stand for many years to commemorate the hard...

It is the month, of September, the be ginning of Spring, just eight months after the Rileys had taken up their home in Kapunda, and nearly the same length of time since John had fixed upon the spot for his new and better home. He had not been working with a partner, and when-it had been neces sary to. have some assistance he had borrowed help from one of the, splitters living near, and repaid his debt in the same way, consequently improvements went on slowly, and the work of -build ing and clearing was further retarded by his undertaking to fulfil orders for fails and scaffold poles.

The Harvest. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 December 1887

TAie Harvest, Hie present harvest.-Estimates hare been given by variouB authorities fixing the aver age yield at anything from eight to twelve ; bushels. If only the cultivated land were! taken in the calculation, we feel convinced 1 that the highest, guess would be nearer the truth. provided (there is always an " if') that j the crops are gathered without casualties There are wet days, windy days, damp days, j which interfere With harvesting by means of the stripper. We have often heard farmers say, "1 should have obtained an average of five or eix bushels more if it had not been for that heavy wind, or that rain, on such a day.'? We believe there is an average loss of at least four millions of bushels eveiy year through the use of strippers. The string binders must come into general use, if only to begin the harvest. It is altogether too risky- to .wait -till all the crop is dead ripe be fore?tryiflg to harvest it. The straw must be saved, the fields cleaned, and a much better sys...

Proposed New Episcopal Church for Petersburg. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 December 1887

Proposed New Episcopal Cliurclt for Petersburg;. For some time past the members of the Episcopal Church located in this town have been aware that the present Church building is totally inad equate to meet the requirements of the congregation, which during the minis tration of the present incumbent has been steadily increasing. It has been felt very undesirable for the present state of things to continue and that the proper planwould be toset aboutone of two things almost immediately-either en large the old edifice or erect an entirely new building. In connection with the former proposal several difficulties are presented. 1. The building is on a quarter acre block and it would be necessary for the purpose to purchase an adjoining allotment. 2. The situation is a very unsuitable one^ and thirdly, the building- is not one that could be conveniently enlarged. On Friday evening last several members of the congregation met by in vitation at the office of Mr Copinger to consider the matte...

Gladstone. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 December 1887

Gladstone. A musical treat was afforded Gladstone residents on Monday evening last when the sacred opera " Esther1' was given in the Institute by a number of lady and gentleman amateurs from Crystal Brook. The orchestra consisted of two organs aud six brass instruments with a chorus of about 50 voices. Mr Dabinett was the conductor and the service was very pleasingly rendered throughout; The principal performers were dressed in Oriental costumes which were correct!y and artistically designed When the opera was first given at Crystal Brook the Insitute was so crowded that over 100 persons were unable to obtain admittance. Although at Gladstone the attendance was not so large yet a good audience assembled. A supper took place at the close and a number of people remained to partake of the good things provided- The proceeds were in aid of the Bible Christian Church. The weather is now warm and very suitable for the ripening of the waeat. One or two farmers have cotnn.euced reaping hut r...

Bartle, This gentleman first of all clears out for a few days holiday along with a married woman (not his wife), which at once placed him in sus picion in reference to his duties of collector of water rates, and the suspi cion appeared to be well founded, as divers amounts of cash were found to foe' unaccounted for. A warrant was signed by the Town Clerk under in structions from' the Council, and on Mr Bartle's return on Tuesday evening last he was at once secured by the police, and taken the next morning before Messrs J.

Original Poetry. ONLY A LETTER. [Br BRASH.] Only a letter on an old sea che!6t, On. board of a b&rque, as she lay at rest In an alien port, and hailed from the West; What haneyed words the note contained, Though dirt begrimmed, and sadly stained, What secret thoughts there lay enchained Till an opening day-What welcome greeting "From the far off tar-what hopes of meeting Were breathed on the page beforeeompleting. Ere the breeze should waft it o'er the deep, To a fond old dame, who hungered to peep On the lookedfor sheet, and rejoiced to weep O'er the fond epistle. Eh, 'tis the welcome shaft that's often flown From the tropic coast to the torrid zone, With sweet words of lore, fair cupid's own. 'Tis the generoos news that reconciles Mankind to litre on the far off isles, And helps the toil of the poor exiles. * * * * * # Only a letter in an old log hut, Clasped in a hand that'6 tightly shut, And tanned the shade of a ripe chestnut; The reader stood in a rev'rie soft, Musing ...
