Orroroo, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 February 1888

OPPOPOO, We bad a rare treat given as last Friday night by the Payne Family of Vocalists and Instrumentalists who. rendered a well chosen programme in our Institute Hall, to a large and ap preciative audience. Every nuriiber was well and tastefully given, ani the frequent recalls, which, were, in most cases cheerfully responded to, mast ? have convinced the Payne Family that they will meet with another* hearty reception if they should cptne -this *vay .again. , I should like to,remark that it really seems a pity when two policemen are present that -a"'portion of fthe audience should have to submit to1 an no^ance from one or two persons Who seem to have left there brains at, home, if ever they had that commodity, and whose supreme pleasure seems to con sist in spoiling a good 'entertainment to those wiho have the taste and culture to recognise and appreciate good singing and playing.

On Our Provincial Press. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 February 1888

Ob2 <tsir Press. In view of the present agitation for the formation of a Press Association, the following article from the Gunnedah Advertiser will not be without interest to" journalists and advertisers. A week or two ago or.r attention was taken by a paragraph in the Spectator, copied from the Cooma Ex press, dealing wi.h np-count ry news papers and their relation to the adver tising therein. The writer in the Express laments the way ia which the newspaper proprietors let their space yo in worthless advertisements for a mere nothing-merely, in fact, 4 a starvation pi ice.' He advocates al.-o, the formation of a union, association, or combination of some kind, by whose means to protect .themselves against the capitalist, merchant and trader, who, like leeches, are diligently suck ing away at what constitutes the life blood of a country newspaper, viz., its advertising columns. This is all very well as far as it goes ; but the writer has omitted, perhaps for fear of wound...

Cj)t JJcterslmrg Cintcs, ORROROQ CHRONICLE AHO NQRTHESH ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1388. Is it possible 2 In one of bis recent celebra tion speeches,Sir Hy.Parkes ex pressed bis conviction that by the end of next century Aus- j tralia would bave 60,000,000 of people-that is to say, it would be not only more populous than Great Britian is at present, but even than the United States is, which, starting as a republic with 3,000,000 of people, bad only 50,000,000 on its Centen ia! day. There is no doubt that the number of people could be brought here in the time, or born here; but will there be room for them ? asks a con temporary. Australia has plenty of area, but acre for acre it is not such a population sustaining area as that of Amer ica is.

Useful Dairy Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 17 February 1888

Dsefffll Kairy Hints. Canon. Bagut, in a recsnt lecture on dairy farming, threw oat some hints well worth remember ng. It was not, he said, the cow -which produced the milk aloue, hue the food and watec which they put into her, for the animal was only the machine which produced the milk and cream. He impressed upon his audience the necessity' there was {or treating their cows with' gentleness, as in caseadairj'maidor anyone else ilitreated a cow, then she would not let down her milk, -'and results would follow. A cow mast be milked with quickness, and no tun<* ought to be lost in getting the milk strained into the settling pans- liaving spoKen of- the great necessity there was for cleanliness in order that the milk might produce the greatesti quantity of good c^eam, he said milk ought to he shallow in summer, and deep in winter in I the pans. But if they allowed their cream to remain too long on the mifkit became sour and this effectually stopped the farmer obtaining a go...

My papa yesterday sent me to my room for having pulled our white guinea pig's tail, and I took up your ; paper to see if any punching had taken place at the last Corporation meeting, and found that you had printed a copy of its balance sheet. On looking over it I found that Mr Hill does not properly account for £50 12s. 9d. which has been spent, for on the debit side he shows that this amount has been bad. from {and is still owing toj the bank, and to show it was spent he states " Balance due to bank carried forward £50 12s 9d."
