Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 January 1888

Aflvei'JisKj^ Xrujgis, " Advertising is to business what steam power is to machinery-the grand, propellins power,"-MACADLAY. "I was never exactly buried alive," said an old clerk, recounting his experience, "but once 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 Keep dropping your advertisements on the public and they will soon melt »in<W it njjg rock salt. Quitting advertising in. dull times is HW tearing out a dam whon 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. !

Port Pirie and the Barrier Trade. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 January 1888

Port Pirie and tbe Bar rier Trade. The Town Clerk of Port Pirie has courteously forwarded to us a copy of the Mayons annual report for that muni cipality. From it we e;leam the following: It ia pleasing to note that gradually but, I think, Burely,attracting the attention it des erves as the natural and therefore the chea pest outlet and Bhippiog point for the heavier and larger portion of the Barrier trade. We have had to complain «f a policy of centraliz ation which has sought to snuff ont the out- , porta. Notwithstanding this reprehensible and grossly selfish and nnf air policy the advan tages of our port will assert themselves and secure the traffic that should come this way. Becogniaing these advantages substantial interest has already been acquired in our midst by a firm, whose advent I trust wiU be followed by others to mutual profit. The town was fittingly represented at the opening of the Silverton tramway on September 16, although the remarks of our representative, Mr. Pre...

Australia's Wealth. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 January 1888

Australia's WoalUb Iii material wealth Australasia, with illimitable resources yet virgin and nn< developed, can be described without ex aggeration as among the richest couutri«s on the faoe of the globe. A people of three millions and a half has a public revenue of £23,600,000, of which £9,500,000, n raised by taxation, and its annual pubEc expenditure amounts to £26,400,000. Its revenue is thrioe aa large as that of Belgium, with a two-thirds bigger population, and of Brazil, with three times the number. The ratio per head of gross revenue is twice or three times as great as that of any European country, and is WgW than most, even if we take only the amount raised by taxation, the percentage of which of the total revenue i% nevertheless, smaller than elsewhere. The public debt of Australasia has now readied £153,000,000-a total which brings ua amongst the most heavy borrowing powers; and in the ratio per head we are far ahead of any other nation. Even Spain, with £30 9s...

Penny Sketches. WAITING FOR THE CONCERT [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 January 1888

Penny Sketches, (BT KANG B. WHOO) WAITING FOR THE CONCERT Waiting 1 Who likes waiting? It is al ways disagreeable, tiresome, tedious. Look at the new wife putting the kettle on the fire and waiting till the water! boils. Even to her it is tedious, tho'j she is mentally employed. She is now thinking of the grand display she made on her wedding day. How the old companions envied her in her beautiful bridal robes and of all the girls that Jack courted she was the only one who could win him. I have my work to do now but will soon keep a carriage and Fll have my servants; only just wait a bit. The school-boy tires in waiting for the holidays. Time moves slowly-too slowly. 41 Time flies" may l»e true to some people; but to him if it " flies" at all, the wings are short and weak. He longs to be a man. He only wants the moustache and he'd be a man com plete, and to hasten time along the razor ia scraped over the bare skin to make the hair grow. He, whilst waiting, joins the carpenters, the ...

The Big Ironclad Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 January 1888

Big Ironclad Aline. Measures, we learn, are about to be taken to dispatch one of the most com petent persons from Sydney to make a careful report on the pine, with a view of testing tlie value placed upon it by the company's experts. This means a very important step in the interests of Silverton. From the Silver Age of December 28 we extract the following: " This claim is situated about miles S.S. West of Silverton, on the mineral belt stretching from Uraberumberka to Thackaringa. Running through '. this property there are two strong lodes with large iron outcrops. These cariy galeua in places, and in one open cutting there is a nice lode formation. j.bout one ton of galena is lying on the surface. This claim ig in every way worthy of isystematie development, as the lodes are regular land continuous, and are known to be lead and silver bearing. The country is a fine micace ous slate, and eminently favorable for carrying payable bodes of ore." CWe have inspected a very fine sample cf...
