Bendleby. December 21, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 December 1887

Bendlcliy. December 21, 1 Although a month has now elapsed since reaping commenced very little progress has been made with the work, rain every few days or so having kept the strippers idle nearly three parts of the time. These delays have given farmers opportunities of c e ming up as they reaped, but I am sorry to have to say the results have been far from satisfactory, very few <-f the crops having come up to expectations.

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 December 1887

The Art of Advertising. Advertising ' is a fine art, and has laid _ the foundation of manj a fortune. Is think ing over this sabject and consulting author ities, We find we may sum up all the secrets of the art in two things-1st, a goodmedmm and 2nd, good matter- Now any wooden-head" can see that it's no use for a Petersburg store keeper to advertise his goods in a newspaper in the Northern Territory or Timbueto*V or even in Adelaide. What he wants is to get his name before his neighbours, those most likely to buy off him, that is if they hear of him, How can they hear of him unless he rings his bell or " booms* as the Americans term it. An advertisement is a bell that zings all day. For these reasons a " local news paper" is the best; everyone who wants to do trade should not only advertise in such, a paper but also encourage its circulation, for, he will be helping himself, as well as helping others. The matter of an advertisement is another important point. Nobody can say "there ...

CHAPTER X.—A SURPRISE. "Loveliness Needs not the foreign aid of ornament, But is, wheh unadorned) adorned the most. —THOMPSON. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 December 1887

CHAPTER X.-A SURPRISE. "Loveliness Needs not the foreign aid of ornament, But is, wheh unadorned) adorned the most. -THOMPSON. The reader of a novel regards with little interest the work of the best of novelists when the plot is known or the fate of the hero needs no unmasking. It was not so with David, for reading the " Vicar of Wakefield" the second time gave him mote pleasure than on its first perusal. On making the first acquaintance of the vicar's wife he read critically, and disbelieved its faithful ness in portraying a lady who was so unmtufdl as to tell her husband that their daughter was dead-and kept the secret that the young lady was still alive. On the second reading he Sought and found new beauties i he read and and read again* and re-read the most striking passages, till he was able to give an extensive review of the work, ! as he knew many of the finest passages by heart. Should its owner ask any questions about " the charming novel*' he was prepared to give his opini...

" All About." etc. CHAPTSR IX.-SPRING TIME. {Continued) But "those few weeks," or rather few months, dil go by, and Clarice was enjoying her solitude amid the hills and apparently contented with her lot, although the life was like its surroun dings-rough arid rugged. Yet, by every member of the Trevail family she was admired, sought after, and loved. If she was missed for a few minutes by the children, or .' the head of the house'' came home and she was not in sight, the question in each case was the same-'"Where's A untie?" Always cheerful and ever agreeable, she was the sunshine of the house. Under such conditions it is not sur prising that she Was contented, but contentment does not unfrequently reign where it should be entirely un known, for no creature, as a rule, is so dissatisfied, disagreeable and unhappy as the petted child-^com...

Selected Poetry. THE OLD TRAMP PRINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 December 1887

Selected Poetry. THE OLD TRAMP PRINTER. Here's a rhyme to the old tramp printer that as long as he lives will roam, Whose 4 card1 is his principle treasure, and where night overtakes him, home; Whose shoes are run over and twisty, -whose garments are shiny and thin, And who takes a bunk in the basement when the pressman lets him in. It is true there are some of the trampers that only the Angel of Death, When he touches them with his sickle, can cure of the ' spirituous breath A-nril that some of their fellow trampers are shunned as unwholesome scamps; And that some are just aimless, homeless, restless typographical tramps. Bat most of them surely are worthy of some thing akin to praise, And have drifted down to the present out of wholesomer, happier days; And where (though his looks be as seedy as ever a mortal wore) Will you find the old tramper minus Ms mar vellous funds of lore ?' What paper hasen't he worked on? Whose manuscript hasen't he set P What story worthy remembrance was...

Cor j*e«i>on<Ie JICC. MUNICIPAL MATTERS. TO THE EDITOR. SIB,--No man who takes any interes in the affairs of our township can have observed progress of municipal matters during the last few weeks in particular without feeling that there is something radically wrong in its administrative body, and wishing that the driver of the team could display a little more tact and ability in handling the reins, .and avoid the demoralizing, pitiful spectacle of kicking and plunging seen in the Council Chamber of late. The friction caused by the recent elections let us hope will now have quite passed away. Men in their ardent attempts to carry their point (in which no fair-minded man can doubt they were perfectly honest, whether on this side or that) may have been blinded by their anxiety for the moment, so as to say and do things, the calm light of later reason will not commend. Perhaps, too, the very character of the combatants, their energy, determination arid pluck may account fo...
