THURSDAY'S GALLOPS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

THURSDAY'S GALLOPS. Thursday morning, April 28, was csld and misty at Morpbettvilie before tbe sun's genal rays dispelled both shortly after C. Ao the course proper was open on this day a large mastering of horses was the result, and more than usual interest was taken in the work done owing to several of the owners being on the oround to see their horses gallop. Mr. Pile came on to the groued shortly after breakfast, and as First Wafer was ridden in the popular pink and white belt at exercise it was expected that a trial might be cornicg oS. Th-a touts, however, were disappointed in this respect, as after trotting slowly round the coarse the Cap favorite was taken back to his bax. The only interesting gallops of the morning were those recorded below between Annie Firmiu, Ruby, Rita, and Country Girl, aud Laviaia and Topaz. D.O.D., the earliest oae out, did not go as faet as he did on Tuesday morning, bat he is very fit and fresh. Vagabond, tie Sssendon Stakes hero, has suffered seve...

EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

EDUCATION. CO THB BDITOBj Sir— It is a matter for regret that elementary education does not receive more public attention in this colomy. To know that reform is needed it is only neoessary to travel through some of our little townships. There yon will see con gregated, often on the steps of the publichouse, youths from six to eighteen years of age, some smoking, some playing, but all, er nearly all, using bad and filthy language. At nient time thingB are worse, as then the number is increased considerably. It may be asked what is the causa of this? It is becauu they am no* sent to school. This shows shameful negleot on the part of those who manage tha education department They are invested with power to compel parents to send children between the ages of seven aad thirteen to school ai least 36 days in eadx quarter provided that no reasonable excuse eaa ba assigned for absence. In 1879 the depart ment spent £1,420 10s. 10d. in carrying oat thai compulsory clause. This large ram was ...

LAND AGENTS' CHARGES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

LAND AGENT8' CHARGES. TO THB HDITOK. Sir— Allow me to draw attention to the exor bitant charges of land agents. If a seleotor employs a land agent in Adelaide to bid for a block of land at a Government Bale, or to select for him at the Land Office, the land agent charges him two and sometimes three guineas if successful, while in Sydney the charge is onlya guinea. Could not an officer be appointed by fche Land Department to act as agent for selec tors, his charge being a guinea (if only to select land whioh has passed the tommf ) ? By this means more satisfaction would be given ta farmers, besides being an additional soorce of revenue.— I am,&o. KOI A SHAEK. Bendleby. April 15.

On Good Friday as a party of ladies and gentlemen were walking: along the gully a large stone weighing some twenty pounds was rolled down from the top of a bill and struck one of the ladies, inflicting a- nasty out. Had this stone struok any one of the party on tbe head or back the resales might have been more serious. When a boy I wast nearly killed by a stone rolled in the same manner. — 1 am, &o» NEUO.

XAKCOWIE ATHLETIC SPORTS. Athletio sports were held in a paddook ad joining tha township of Taroowie on Easter Monday, and proved a decided suocess, both on account ol the number of spectators and oempe titors. Many of the events were very olosoly contested, and both the running and Jumping would have been considered creditable in the metropolis. The principal race of the day was, of course, the cap, for which four competitors started. It was eventually won by H. Seatle. with one point to spare, O. Barrit taking second prize, andj. Martin, third. The Hurdlerace was also well-oontested,Searle, the winner, only pass ing Mi^iMj the second man,afewyards from the winning-post.

?MEE SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 1881. THE UPPER HOUSE ELECTIONS. On Wednesday the result of the polling for ihe six members of the Legislative Council was declared at the To wb Hall. It was satisfactory to learn from the returning officer lor the province, Mr. W. R. Boothby, that out of more than 9,000 votes recorded only 103 were informal, and a large pro portion of these had evidently been rendered eo wilfullv by the facetious, cynical, or dis satisfied electors who recorded them. In responding to the -vote of thanks accorded to him, Mr. Bootbby took occasion to ob serve that he had been twenty-four yean retuming-officer for the province, and that during that time not a. single election had been contested, before the Court of Disputed. Returns. This i* highly gratifying and creditable, but Mr. Boothby must be con tent to divide the credit with the various district returaing-officers and their deputies, ?who during that long period have presided in their respective polling-booths so im pa...
