"A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year." [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 27 December 1878

'A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,' Odr readers would accuse us of lack. of courtesy, indifference to public opin ion, misanthropy, &c, if we did not reiterate these time-worn and time honoured good wishes, Congratula tions are seemly at the marriage feast, good wishes at the 'christening,' and generous reflections at the death. We recognise the appropriateness of our a.mmal utterances of goodwill, and could heartily wish that they were more fre quent and less conventional than they are. Our much-abused friend, 'By- stander,' gently hints that the annual compliments don't mean much in the Burra. They are ' tihe compliments of the season,' heirlooms brought from better lands, which on these state occa sions are dra'wn from the obscurity of the cupboard to grace the social board, and demonstrate the respectability of our lineage. But then he is a philoso pher of the cynical school, who, like many greater men, delights in analys ing the abnormal, and, like the London cabm...

CORRESPONDENCE. (From our own Correspondents'). MOUNT BRYAN EAST, December 16. Beaping is in full operation now, some of the crops are turning out equal to expectations where the rabbits have not injured them. The weather baa been very warm this last week. T;ie rabbits are walking into 'he crops and doing ? great deal of damage, taking all before them. They have cleared over thirty acres of Mr. John Dnnstan's crop, besides thinning it in other places. He is not the only one that suffers from the little pest. Mr. Best and Mr. Roberts have lost about half of their crop through the sqaatters around them not trying to kOl them. One farmer has only 20 acres to reap^out of 200 acres. Other small farmers have nothing at all, it being all destroyed with the rabbite. The Government Babbit parties are doing there best to clear the reserves. They cannot kfll many by digging the burrows out as there are not many in the burrows at this time of the year.

Fowler & Co., to the order and under tne personal supervision of Mr. Peter Waite, acting in conjuntion with Sir Thomas Elder. Since then we have from time to time noted ilie progress mat'.e in twinging the machine into full working condition and reported upon tbe ivsuhs of tilt trials made with it upon Paratoo Station. As id «l«raye the case with novel appliances for saving labor and augmenting producting, the preliminary work has been attended with considerable difficulty and not a little discouragement. To begin with, the task of conveying tbe apparatus a distance of more than 150 miles into the in terior was no light ene, but after this had been accomplished there remained tbe labour of getting it up, of educating men to undertake its management, of organising means for repair ing breakages an...
