THE NEW AJAX GOLD MINE. A SUBSIDY GRANTED. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
THE NEW AJAX GOLD MINE. A SUBSIDY GRANTED. The Commissioner of Crown Lands (Hon. J. Coles} has received tbe following report, dated March 12, en the New Ajax Gold Mining Company from the Inspector of Mines (Mr. D. D. Rosewarne):— ' The mine is situated eight miles south- west of Waukaringa and comprises 30 claims, which aie held by the new company. The reef is a well-defined one and can be traced for a con siderable riiRtanrp. It has been sunk on in 10 places, the shafts being from 20 feet to 130 feet deep. The course throughout is north-east and south-west, with an underlay north-west. The formation is composed of layers of ferruginous quartz and chlorite slate, and ib a fair sample of a laminated lode. Only three layers of quartz are shown in the shaft, but there may be still others in the foot wall These formations in an auriferous country are considered a very promising indication of a rich class of ore, and the Bassick lode in Colorado, U.S., which was similar, yielded phenomen...

The Young Folks. THE WHITE PASHA. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
'Site lomtg Idk THE WHITE PASHA. [By Noeah Bbooks, in St. Nicholas.] (Continued.) When Stanley returned to Europe after his discovery of Livingstone in July, 1872, many people refused to believe his story. Some said it was tbe idle tale of a 'mere newspaper correspondent,' but tbe evidence he brought with him, letters from Livingstone, and other things, was too strong. The Qaeen believed him, for she sent him a beautiful box of gold Eet with jewels ; and the Royal Geographical Society of Great Britain, a very high and mighty body, believed nun, for it snowed mot high honor. But it does seem a great shame that after a Christian and a noble-hearted man, as Stanley ie, bad done so much and suffered Co many privations in a good cause he should have been stigmatised as a pretender, No wonder he was angry. Stanley tell us that he saw in London one day soon after the burial of Mb great friend Livingstone, in tbe window of an old book chop, a queer little book with the title ' How to Observ...
THE JUNCTION AND NORTH MINES. Broken Hill, March 16. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
THE JUNCTION AND NORTHMINES. fEv Telecranh.1 Broken Hill, March 16. To day s Silver Age publishes an interview with experts concerning the North and Junc tion mines. The article states that Mr. Jolly is very reticent, and the reporter left with the impression that the manager of such an impor tant mine might have been more communica tive. Mr. Nicholas, the manager of tbe con centrating works, Btates there is no truth in the report that they had given tip the treatment of the Junction ore on the ground of its re fractory nature. Mr. Fatten and Mr. McGregor were also interviewed, and the latter stated that the Junction conoentrates assayed 62 per cent, of lead, bat the silver contents were not known. He speaks en couragingly of the North property, but declines to give an opinion on the Junction. He has visited the North, and states there are no signs of a hanging wall, and the crosscut is in the lode 8 feet through. He brought away a speci men of low grade galena ore from the face of ...
THE BAKER'S CREEK MINE. HEAVY ORUSHING. Hillgrove, March 16. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
m - THE BAKER'S CREEK MINE. HEAVY CRUSHING. fBy Telegraph. [From our Special Reporter.] Hulgrove, March 16. The directors of tne JBaker's; Ureek tiold Mining Company and a party of other Ade laide gentlemen arrived at Hillgrove this evening in time to witness the delivery of gold as the result of the past two weeks' crushing. The return was one of the highest ever secured, being 1,770 oz. of gold from 106 tons of stone, or nearly 17 oz. to the ton. Armidale, March 19. I am juet leaving for Tamworth en route for Mount Moor. It has been reported here that the Baker's Creek claims have been jumped, but this has not the slightest foundation. A trivial dispute has arisen respecting the ma chinery site leased from the adjoining claim, but the matter will be settled in a few days. Our party left the mine at 8 o'clock last night, when everything was going well. The mine lias been opened up in a systematic manner, and additional 10-head stamps are on the ground ready for erection. The arrang...
Mining Intelligence. THE JUNCTION MINE. Broken Hill, March 15. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
Mxom Intelligence. THE JUNCTION MINE. fBv Teleirraph.l Broken Hill. March 15. The proprietors of the concentrating works erected on the Junction property have announced that in consequence of the intract able nature of the ore, and their inability to treat it so as to leave any profit for the share holders in themine, they have determined to dis continue running their machinery on Junction oi e. SometimeaRo it was announced that the ore in theuDnerlevels of the Junction mine was being worked out, and just recently a narrow vein of ore, the sole remanet of the 40 -feet lode, was diEcloBed at the 200-feet level, which waB driven through at the 300 feet level. It has been well known for some months past that it would be ridiculous for the shareholders ia the Junction mine to look for sufficient income from the ore revealed at the upper levels to place the company in a petition to pay dividends, and they have confidently pinned their faith to the enormous quantity of galena ore brought ...
THE NORTH-EASTERN MINES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
THE NORTH-EASTERN MINES. [By our Special Reporter.] Few even of those most deeply interested in mining can have any idea of the great extent of mineral country in our north-eastern pastoral districts. It is no exaggeration to say that the whole of the range running northeast of Petersburg to the Barrier is highly metal liferous, and probably in a few years the hills will cover a Beriea of mines giving employment to tnousanas ot people. As yet the country can scarcely be said to have been prospected at all, but still gold and copper have been found in more than a ecore of placeB ia apparently payable quan tities, while silver, platinum, nickel, and plum bago are known to exist. As far as Mannahill the hills appear to be more prolific of gold than anything else, and some of the best mines in the colony lie there and are being energetically developed, But the Waukaringa district is only in its infancy, even as far aa the present mines are concerned, for they suffer from tbe difficulty ...
THE JUNCTION MINE. THE LODE WIDENING AGAIN. ARE MR. JOLLY'S REPORTS RELIABLE? Broken Hill, March 18. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
THE JUNCTION MINE; THE IiODE WIDENING AGAIN. ARE MR. JOLLY'S REPORTS RELI ABLE? [By Telegraph. 1 Broken Hill, March IS. At midnight on Saturday I paid a secret visit, in company with another reporter, to the Junction Mine, and succeeded in reaching the 300-feet level without discovery. There was no ooe working in the mine at the time, and we were able to make a complete inspection. We found in the drive north that the lode had widened to at leaBt 5 feet, and there were cavi ties in the lode in which ore could be seen spreading. I saw Mr, Jolly, the manager, on Sunday, and he stated positively that there was no change in the lode.

THE BBOKEN HILL MINES. REP ORTERS TO BE EXCLUDED. fBy Tel6tnr»nb.i Broken Hill, March 38. Mr. Sylvester Brown, whom I interviewed today, states that it has been decided to exclude newspaper reporters from aU mines in which he is interested, He alleges that the managers and directors have been hampered in many things in consequence of independent reports appearing in the press, and all infor mation must in the future come through the managers and directors. He will eay nothing about the Junction, and any change in the lode will only be made known through the directors.
PLEUROPNEUMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
PLEUROiPNEUMONIA. Queensland, as a great cattle-producing country, is deeply Interested In the question of Inoculation for pleuropneu monia, a disease which causes much mortality among its herds. The value of Inoculation as a preventive measure has long been recognised In Australia by experts in stock diseases. There Is, how ever, a practical difficulty In its application ipon a large scale, as a supply or lympn or inoculation purposes is frequently un tbtatnable. Recently the (Queensland Government appointed a board to enquire . nto the subject, and the agents of M. Pasteur who are now on a vieit to the olonies. Dr. Germont and M. Loir, were etained with the object of conducting txperlments. The success of Pasteur's raceme of anthrax, the efficacy of which is a preventive was completely demon itrated by his agents in New South iVales, encouraged the hope that ;heir experiments in connection with )leuro-pneumonia would have slml ariy valuable results. The expectation las In a large ...

INSECT PESTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
INSECT PESTS. The members of the Agricultural Bureau have for some months past been exercising their minds as to the best means to keep out of the colony certain insect peats which have made things unpleasantly lively for farmers in other countries, and which will, if strict precautions are not taken, add to the troubles of our own agriculturists. Pro fiting by past experience the bureau wish to act upon the principle that prevention is better than cure. But the radical mea sures that may be adopted in the case of the phylloxera cannot unfortunately be used with a view to keeping out the Hes sian fly and other pests which affect grain plants. The Hessian fly hybernateB in all kinds of grain straw except oaten straw, and to prevent the risk of its transpor tation from America, where the fly is most common, it would be necea eary to seriously hamper commerce be tween that country and the Australian colonies. To restrict the preventive measures to South Australia would ob viously be us...

A SOLILOQUY. ?He sweet to sit in the twilight When the sun has sunk to rest, And silverf moonbeam* gather On the water's peaceful breast ; When the sounds of strife and labor Are hashed in blest repose, And nature seeks her quiet As the day draws to a close. Tie sweet to sit in the twilight And muse on the days gone by, When visions fair and pleasant Entranced 'neath a cloudless sky. Still memories sweetly linger Of the happy days of yore, And kindly words are echoed -Of those who will come no more. 3JEb sweet to Bit in the twilight, though I know 'tis all in rain, And Ibt for those welcome footsteps That will never come again, Thus oft in imagination There comes to me, o'er and o'er, ?The sound of loving voices That will cheer my heart no more, I know I am only dreaming, But the dream is dear to me, Por oft methinks in twilight There are saintly forms I see, Forms of the dear departed, Who long have passed from sight, To ehine in endlesB splendor Where God is Hims...
