CHURCH WORK OF THE RIGHT SORT. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 July 1878
CHUBCH WORK OF THE EIGHT SORT. One good effect of the bard times has been to shake inert, routine people and communities into active measures of econ omy and benevolence, and to suggest new and practical methods of help for the class which suffers the most in the strait. Here is a plan adopted lately in a little town near this city, which we recommend to other small communities, who have, like larger ones just now, their share of unem ployed workmen and the ubiquitous tramp. A club was inaugurated, beginning with half-a-dozen meml era, one from each church, Baptist, C-ith-ilic, Methodist, &e., with one or two outsiders. Each of thess headed a separate committee on concerts, on leciure?, oh sewing bees, on private theatricals, on s ientific exhibitions, &lt;fcc. Each of these chairmen or chairwomen selected his or her own aids, made his or her own arrangements, gave notice to personal acquaintances of the times and objects of each &lt; xhibition. A charge was ...
HOLIDAY RAMBLES IN TASMANIA AND VICTORIA. X [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 July 1878
HOLIDAY EAMBLES INTAS MANTA AND VICTORIA. No. X. Our stay at tlie southern end of the island was "now drawing to a close, but. before bid ding farewell to it we took a tour round some of the suburbs (New Town, &c.), most of which trips were not only interesting in themselves, but also repaid one for the trouble by the meanB they afford of getting glimpses of the beautiful panoramas around from fresh points of view, from each of which some new beauty was discovered. It is rather a strange transition from the sweets of nature to the sweets of trade, but we ought not to , omit the mention amongst the other leading industries of Hobart Town of the jam manu factories there established. A large trade is done with both New South Wales and Vic toria in this department of trade, and we can testify from experience alike to the excellent quality of the article manufactured and to the cleanliness with which the work is carried out. We would, however, remark that extensive as is this ind...
SELECTED POETRY. THE ROBIN. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 July 1878
SELECTED P0E:EY. THE ROBIN. My old Welsh, neighbour over the way Crej t slowly out in the sun of Spring, Pushed from her eaas the locks of gray, And listened to hear ihs Robin sing. Her grandson, p aying at marbles, stopped, And, cruel in sport as boys will be, Tossed a stone at the bird, who hopped From bcugh to bough in the apple tree. " !Nay," said the giandmolher, " hare you no heard, My poor, tad boy, of the fiery pit, And bow, drop by drop, this merciful bird Carries the wafer that quenches it? " He brings cool dew in hie little bill, And lets it fall on the souls of sin ; You can see the mark on his red breast still Of fiies that scorch as he drops it in. " My poor Bron rhuddyn! my breast-burned brd. Singing so sweetly from limb to limb, Veiy dear to the heart of Our Lord Is he who pities the lost like Him!" ' Amen," I said, to the beautiful myth; " Sing, bird of God, in my heart as well; Each good thought is a drop wherewith To cool and lessen the fires of hell. " Prayers of...
THE HEATHEN CHINEE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 July 1878
THE HE YTHEjST CHINEE. Many and varied are the arguments used for and against the introduction of the "Heathen Chinee" to this Province. Of late years the subject has been very promi nently brought before the people of the colonies, and also of the Californians; and the spirit in which some of the articles con cerning him have been -written has caused more importance to be attached to the question than might otherwise have been. " John " has his advantages and his disadvantages—his good traits of character and his bad traits; but the worst of it is that when he is bad, he is bad to some purpose. Having had con siderable experience of the Chinese in the colonies the writer of these lines purposes to give a few remarks concerning them which he has gained from personal observation. In the first place it must be stated that Chinese, as a rule, do not care much to emi grate to any but a country where gold lias been discovered. They do not care about j turning to the ordinary run of work ...

The Kapunda Herald. TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1878. THE COUNCIL OF EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 9 July 1878
Wije Itapuittfa fH«raltr. TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1878. THE COUNCIL OF EDUCATION. One prominent feature in the debate which has recently been occupying so much of the time of the Parliament is the prevalence of the feeling that the services of the Council of Education should be dispensed with, and at Mr. Bees' request the Treasurer has promised to fix a day for taking Mr. Bees' test motion that the Council should be abolished. It is a very wise plan to take this vote before proceed ing to the consideration of the present Bill at any length in Committee, because it is clear that if the Council is so abolished an entirely new Bill will have to be submitted, and any further expenditure of time on the i subject before this important question j is decided would be simply a waste of I time. "We are very glad to find that the views we have held and expressed for a very long time past on this matter are now becoming more general, and it must also be gratifying to Mr. White to find that the House i...
