Original Articles. SEED WHEAT FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

©righral Jtrticfek SEED WHEAT FOR FARMERS. New South Waixs and South Australia present an instructive parallel and an equally instructive contrast. In both, colonies agricultural distress has been produced by a drought of excep tional severity. In both a number of farmers have experienced so com plete a failure of their industry that tney are witnout a supply ot wneat to sow for the coming season, and also destitute of the means of purchasing it. In Tooth, again, there haB been an agitation in favor of the Government advanclng_a sufficient supply of seed in proved caaeB of dlBtreBS. At this point the parallel, complete so far as it goes, cornea to an etd. In one colony, ruled by a protec tionist Ministry, the demand has baen net with a stern refusal, though It has been clearly ahown that a majority of the House responsible for public expenditure is favorable to an op posite policy. And this refusal is further emphasised by the face that it has been persisted In, notwithstanding long...

STOCK ROADS AND RESERVES. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— I fee that Mr. Oookeley replies to a letter of mine on the above subject. He says that the gist of my letter may be summed up in the few words, ' As it was in the beginning, &c.' He states that we continually and it necfSEsry to 'alter our mode of pro cedure,' Perhaps he does, but I would beg to remind him that to be continually altering is not (he road to success, far indi viduals or for communities. Ue gags that ' It was absolutely necessary years ajS^before the railways were made that there should be good wide roads for travelling flocks ba as to get them to market.' If such was .the case then, how is it they are not needed now? When tbe stock roads were first laid cut tbe greater part of the ? rum were held on lease from the Government, and were unfenced ; and parties travelling with stock had to give notice at the head station of the run they wished to cross, also to the Grown lands ranger, and then they could without lit or...

(general Jleto*, ST. PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATION. DEMONSTRATION ON THE OVAL. Irishmen, no matter in what part of tha world they find -themselves, always like to j unite and hold a demonstration to celebrate j St. Patrick's Day. St. Patrick, as the patron { eaint of Ireland, is hsld in dear remembrance, and no true Irishman would dream of allowing the national festival day to pass without marking it in a suitable way. If at this time twelve months ago clouds seemed to be gather ing around the heads of the Irish leaders in t&e old world, they have just recently in a satis factory and triumphant manner been dis pelled. In this colony there are a large number of colonists who though many thousands of miles from the green isle always evince a keen interest in tha struggle that is going on at home, and though new associations and sentiments are springing up they do not forget the national festival day of Irishmen. And thus it is that eaoh succeeding year we find the sons of Erin in ...

ST. JACOBS OIL TESTED by DR. COLLETT, M.A., F.R.A.S. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

ST. JACOBS OIL TESTED DE. COLLETT,yM.A,, F.R.A.S. flrom the Birmingham ChronicLe] The distinguished journalist, George Augus tus Sala, in a letter from Australia, published in the London Daily Telegraph, alludes to the fact that the Royal Mail Steamship (which carried him from San Francisco to Sydney) had amongst its cargo several tons of St. Jacobs oil. As this medicinal oil has also re cently been largely imported into Great Britain, we were curious with regard to its efficacy. We desired Dr. Collett, M. A., F.R, A.S., cf Leicester, to test its utility, and to our surprisa he has proved to be effectual in the absolute cure of rheumatism, neuralgia, rheumatic gout, and other complaints, and states that it is the most speedy and Bure remedy that has come under his notice ; and if it were adopted by the general public it would prove the greatest source of happiness and comfort to many afflicted homes.

THE SPORTS AND GROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

THE SPORTS AND GROUNDS, The fierce heat experienced during the early part of tbe afternoon did not of course tend to animate those assembled with a longing to participate in sports which took them from tbe Bhade of the pavilion ; still both switch back and toboggan were well patronised, and swingboats and other forms of enjoyment in which a certain portion of youth appear to delight also commanded a share of attention. Those public benefactors whose only desire is to train the eye of young Australia to score bull's-eyes in quick succession, put in an appearance, while other purveyors of similar amusements were also on the grounds during the day; thongh not apparently with muoh advantage to themselves. The racing was not remarkable for any special incidents, and do timekeeper being apparently on the ground the tuneB could not be obtained. The bicycle events were by far the most interesting items on the programme. The Mile Handioap fell to Walter Cox, who rode from the scratch mark ; ...

OUR CONTINENTAL COMPETITORS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

OUR CONTINENTAL COMPETITORS. Some time since an attempt was made to discredit the Waterbury Watch in the regions of the German Empire ; but the result is likely to be very beneficial to the Waterbury, judging from the following account which appeared in the April number of the the Jewellers' Journal. Chieaeo. 111.: — 'The AUg. Journal der Uhrm givesa detailed account of the suit brought by the agent of the Water bury Watches tor Germany against a Cologne watchmaker, who published an article in the AUg.

The defendant persisted in comparing it with the high-priced and exact timekeepers, and brought numerous witnesses to prove that it did not always keep as good time nor last as long as a 100- dollar watch. His concluding argument was that watches turned out at the rate of two a minute must necessarily be perfect fraadB, Of course the court, being a German court, decided against the American watch,...

COLLISION IN THE BRITISH CHANNEL. LOSS OF A STEAMER WITH ALL ON BOARD. A disastrous collision, resulting in the sink ing of a steamer, with, it is feared, the loss of all on board, occurred off Beachy Head on Monday night, February 4. The Glasgow barque Largo Bay, bound from London to Auckland, came into collision with a large four-masted steamer, which foundered within a few minutes. So tremendous [was the force |jf the collision that the bows of the barque were stove in ; her bowsprit and jibboom, with all tbe gear attached, together with the maintop gallantmaat and the mizentopmaBthead, were all carried away, and the foremast was broken off short at tbe deck, killing an apprentice as it fell. The crew of the barque had, there fore, no time to think of the other ve«el, their own immediate and pressing duty being to clear away the mass of wreckage which littered the decks and made it almost impossible to move. To add to the con fusion it was ascertained that tbe fore compart ment w...

WRECK OF THE NORTHERN BELLE. TWENTY -ONE LIVES LOST. Brisbane. March 19. In connection with the loss of the Northern Belle, the labor brig Para, which has returned to Brisbane from a cruise in the south seas, reports that the Northern Belle waa lying at anchor off the Motlab Island, Banks Group, when a gale came on. The gale was first felt on the night of February 27, and the wind suddenly changed to the north- west, blow ing with hurricane force, and a heavy saa commenced to ran in. Although the vessel had two anchors out it was gradu ally blown towards the shore. Early on the morning of February 28 the wind and sea increased and the port cable parted. The starboard anchor was not nearly sufficient to keep the Northern Balle out, and at about 6 o'clock she struck on a coral reef with tre mendous force, and almost immediately foundered in five fathoms of water. At the time there were 50 islanders in addi tion to the captain and crew on board, and when a call was made it was found th...

THE DRAINAGE OF MELBOURNE Melbourne, March 19. Amongst important questions under consideration at . a meeting of the Royal Commission on sanitation held to-day waa the practicability of a scheme for sewagef or Melbourne and suburbs. Professor Kernot gave evidence that in his opinion before long a system of under ground sewers would have to be adopted. and storm waters ought to be dealt with sb a separate work altogether. A con siderable portion of the sewage would require pumping, and he was inclined to the hydraulic in preference to the pneumatic system, though the first cost of the two systems would not vary very much. He did not regard the question of pumping as a formidable difficulty, and stated that engines like those in use by Messrs. Chaffey Brothers, at Mildura, for the pur poses of Irrigation were capable of p amp Ing all sewage in Melbourne to a great height and at a moderate cost.
