I THE "WEATHER.-Sunday last was i the worst day of the season so far, from early morn till eve a hot blast, as from a furnace blew from the north, whilst the sun shone with undiminished vigor. Few people stirred abroad and the fear ful heat and discomfort must have kept many from church. At Broken Hill an unusual number of deaths have been recorded, attributable doubtless to the weather, whilst throughout the colony bush fires have been general.

On Sunday last it was a regular scorcher, and not fit for a white man to be out, but the farmers could not have had better time for harvesting- Wheat is coming in here pretty fast just now. Both our mills are working again, Koach Bros'. roller mill being run by Messrs Is oil man & Co., from Salisbury and Ade laide, who have secured the plant on a term. The hot weather has been the cause of a serious loss to a farmer near here named Lohman, who had a stack ^ of hay burnt, the fire also consuming several machines and a quantity ot harness. The hay (about 180 tousj was sold, to be delivered at the time or the fire. The origin of the fire is a mystery.

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 January 1888
Advertising; Trulhs, " Advertising is to basiness what steam power is to machinery-the grand, propelling power,"-M ACAULAY. '*1 was never exactly buried alive," said an old clerk, recounting his experience, "but once worked a week in a store that dldn 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 aad ignore advertising, A c instant dropping will wear a rock Keep dropping your advertisements on the public and they will soon melt under it like rock salt. Quitting advertising in dull times is like tearing out a dam when the water is low. Either plan will prevent good times from coming. Euterpriiing people are beginning to learn, the ^alue of advertising the year round. Tae persistency of those who are sot in timidated by the cry of "dull times," will surely place them on the right side in the end. Rudolph "Hetfczog is the largest...
