To the Editor of the Record. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 3 January 1879

To the Editor of th« Record. Bib— There are some old women in the world ( md amongst them the Corporation Inspectors) who nerer could 'earn to mind their own business, but keep poking their noses into other people ? afiairs. I see by the report of the Ooporation moating in your last issue, that that gentleman has wandered away from his own duty, and found a mare's nest in another district. It appears Mr. Symons has carted a lot of manure on to bare patches of his paddock, and amongst this are some bones collected in heaps t j be burned, and had actually being on fire untO. the rain put them out. In reference to his slaughterhouse it is as clean as any, and much cleaner than aome I know within the limits of the Corporation. If any person in power would take a stroll ? little to the north of the White Hart, they will find a multitude of bones and. dead goats half devoured by pigs, but this is within the limits of the Corporation, and as matter cf course is no nuisance, perhaps it don'...

TOPICS. A HEALTH RATE. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 3 January 1879

TOFICS. A HEALTH RATE. At their last meeting oar Town Council began a discussion as to the desirability of a health rate being again imposed iihis year, but did not decide the point. It is generally allowed that the system in force last year vras not by any means perfect, and that much more might have been done with the money, but we ask those to remember that up to the initia tion of that system nothing had ever been done of the kind in the town, and that, therefore, it is not surprising if time has shown where improvement might have been made, and further we would ask them to visit the various rubbish depots and see what a great quantity of waste and noisome matter has been taken there by even our L te imperfect scavenging arrangements. We believe that the money even as it is has been well spent, and that it is not abolition but improvement that is required. We are sure, as was remarked by some of the councillors, that many persons have had ten limes the work done that they could ...

CORPORATION FINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 3 January 1879

CORPORATION FINANCE. It is exceedingly gratifying to find that the Government will supplement not only a part but the ?vrhole of the expenditure on the new bridge at Kooringa' as it would have swallowed up the whole of the next year's funds leaving nothing ior other places but now all will be able to claim a share of public works. Hospitality. — The following para graph was inadvertently omitted last week when we published a letter from the Mayor of Burra to Mr. A M(Cul loch, thanking him for his gnrmal bene faction to the poor families of Burra. Many who would otherwise have gone without the usual Christmas good cheer at the Burra have been enabled to enjoy it through the kindness of our esteemed neighbor at Princess Royal, Mr. A M'Culloch. He, with his usual liber ality, authorised two or three townsmen who are well acquainted with the people most probably in need to distribute to every one requiring it 14 lb. meat, 12 lb flour, 8 lb. potatoes, 4 lb. bread, 3 lb. sugar, 2 lb. rais...

RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 3 January 1879

RABBITS. The meeting in the Institute last week, which we notice elsewhere was partly forestalled -by the remarks of the Commissioner to the deputation. on Friday morning. He then stated his intention to vigorously enforce the Rabbit Act on and after February 1st next, everywhere simultaneously. We believe the Government to have been sincere in their action in delaying its operation during harvest, though we think they. were mistaken, and as now the time for enforcing the Act has been fixed and it is the date asked by the meeting but little remains to be asked beyond matters of detail. One thing mentioned by the deputation and at the meeting, we would enlarge upon and that is the idea of letting to the farmers Jihe clearing of the adjacent Government lands. The Commissioner thought the plan would cause delay and increased expense in supervision. Now we would ask where will the delay arise ? There is ample time to call for tenders before February 1st, and when the farmers get to work...

"Sells." [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 3 January 1879

' Sells.' It would puzzle a philosopher to give an exact definition of the ' cell.' Nearly related to the hoax, it differs from it in being more innocent in its conception and less mischievous in its conBcquancee. Some little ingenuity is required to concoct a happy 'sell;' but any one may perpetrate a hoax who is tqnal to 'lending a lie the confidence of tenth.' The latter is a deliberately plcnned deception, often attending its end by personation or forgery, or something cloee'y akin to it, whereas a sell need* no such plating with edged tools, and L-.Jiy not only be unprersediated, but eveu un intentional. The Irishman who undertook to show as exciseman a private still, and introduced him to Li- brother, who had been twelve years in the army and was a private etill, sold the guardian of the revenue very neatly ; although it is possible the victim of the joke did not fee the fun of the thing, any more than the official of the North London Railway Company did, when overhearing a th...
