ORIGINAL POETRY. MADAM LOFTY. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 June 1878
ORIGINAL POETB-T. MADAM LOFTY. Mrs. Lofty keeps a carriage, So do I; Slie has dappled greys to draw it, None have I. She's no prouder of her coachman Than am I. With my blue-eyed laughing baby Tumbling by, I hide his face lest she should see The cherub boy, and envy me. Her fine husband has white fingers, Mine lias not; He can give his bride a palace, Mine a cot. Her's comes home between the starlight, Ne'er cares she; Mine comes in the purple twilight, Kisses me; And prays that He who turns Life's sands Will hold his loved ones in His hands. Mrs. Lofty has her jewels, So have I; She wears hers upon her bosom; Inside I. She will leave hers at Death's portals By-and-bye; I shall bear the treasures with me When I die-; For I have love and she has gold ; She counts her wealth; mine can't be told. She has those who love her station, None have I; But Fve one true heart beside me, Glad am I. Fd not change it for a kingdom, No, not I; God will weigh it in the balance By-and-bye; And the di...
THE CHINESE FAMINE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 June 1878
THE CHINESE FAMINE. We have been requested by tlie Committee of the Chinese Belief Fund to publish the following " Appeal on behalf of the Famine Stricken in China " :— "In consequence of the terrible famine from which several millions of people in the north of China are suffering, occasioned by a protracted drought, it has been decided to appeal to the benevolent public of South Aus tralia to send a practical proof of their sym pathy to those who are famishing and driven to the direst extremities.

THE ELECTION FOR LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 June 1878
THE ELECTION EOS LIGHT. On Wednesday evening a largely-attended meeting of the electors of the District of Light was held in the Institute Hall, presided over by His Worship the Mayor of Kapunda. The two members for the District, Messrs. J. White and J. Shannon, were present on the platform, as also was the Hon. James Pearee, M.L.C. After a few preliminary remarks from the Chairman, in which he bespoke a fair hearing for the candidates, both of whom were very fair, honest, and honorable men, Mr. D. Moody (who was received with cheers) said the time had been so short, and he not being accustomed to public speaking, that on reaching the stormy regions of politics he found himself rather embarrassed, and would claim their indulgence. The G-o vernment had so recently published their policy that he had not had time to consider it. Before referring to political matters he would say that the electore had acted very kindly towards him, and he regarded their action to him as out of the commo...
CALTOWIE. [From our own Correspondent.] June 3, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 June 1878
CALTOWIE. [From our own Correspondent.] June 3, 1878. The weather has been splendid for the past eight or ten days for farming purposes ; still the farmers keep singing out for more rain. The Queen's Birthday passed off very quietly here. In fact it -was more like a Sabbath day than any other, the shops being shut, and there were no amusements what ever in the township. It is regretted generally that the Caltowie Hotel is likely to change hands, as the pro prietor has won such esteem by his obliging, kind, and courteous manner to visitors and the public generally. At last tenders have. been called and ac cepted for our new Post-Office and Telegraph Station, local builders being the successful tenderers. It is to be hoped they will push on the works speedily, as the present Post Office has not accommodation enough for this rising township. Trade is getting brisk.

Mb. Moody at Sheaoak Log. Mr. Moody met a number of electors at Slieaoik "Log, on Wednesday afternoon. After the candidate had expounded his views on the various topics, a unanimous vote of con fidence was passed in his favor. Out of Season—An empty pepper-box.

MELBOlTBtfE. [From our own Correspondent.]] Mav 27, 1878. The principal political interest of the past week has been [centred in the election for Warnambool, which took place on Tuesday ; last and resulted, as was generally anticipated, in favour of Mr. Francis, who secured 575 votes against Mr. Craig's 464. Speaking on the election the Telegraph says:—" Mr. Francis has experienced the difference be tween contesting a constituency where there was a fair field and no corruption, and fighting for a seat against roll-stuffing pro tected by Government, and whatever corrupt ing influences could be brought to bear. The hon. member for Warrnambool had also the advantage this time of not having a detach ment of the Ministry told off to play the part of electioneering touts before the convincing day, and assume the character of hon. detec tives during the polling, each man taking his station at a booth to watch the Government employes, and terrify them into voting for the Ministerial candida...
