The Petersburg Times, ORROROO CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1888 Mining and Speculative Mining. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 February 1888
CJte JJETOSFAIZG CIMES, CRROHOD CHRONICLE AKO NORTHERN ADVERTISER, FRIDAY; FEBRUARY 24, 1888 mining; and Speculative Mining, There is a wonderful differ ence between the meaning con veyed by the two terms mining and speculative mining. Min ing is a legitimate occupation. It means the searching out of the hidden mineral treasures contained in the earth. It also means the sinking of shafts, the working of lodes,the erection of machinery and the employment of multitudes of men in ihe ex traction of the minerals .when found. The result of mining is to add fresh additions to the world's wealth, and in doing so the employingthe labor of many hands gives them the means to. support themselves and families. It is as legitimate a calling as that of a farmer, or as that of any tradesman. It provides comfort to thbusands, not at the expense of other people, but through the mineral drawn from the earth and previously useless, Speculative mining is, however, a different matter al together. It car...

Useful Dairy Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 February 1888
Useful Dairy Dints, - * - ' Canon Bag&lt;»t, in a recent lecture on dairy farming, tbiew out some hintswell worth remembering. - It was not, lie said, the cow ' which produced jbhe milk alone, but the food and water -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 for treating their ..cows with gentleness, as in case a dairymaid or anyone else ill treated cow, then she would not let down her milk, and results would follow. A cow must be milked with quickness, andnotinw ought to be lost in getting the milk strained into the settling pans- Having spoken of the great necessity there was for cleanliness in order that the milk might produce .the 'greatest quantity of good cream, he said milk ought to j be shallow in snro'ner, and deep in "winter in the pans. But if they allowed their cream to remain too long on the milk it became sour and this effectually stopped thefarmer obt...

Sir Lyon Playfair on Ireland [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 February 1888
. ?? n,nr,i Sir Ly«B Playfair , on Ireland Speaking in Leeds oh a re cent occasion Sir Lyon Pl&yfkir1 said the Unionist patty* as they called themselves, gave them a nickname. They called them separatists, and said they were trying to separate the Empire. Why theyvere trying to reunite the empire. They were doing exactly as America had done. Ireland was a nationality and Scotland WPS a nationality, and if Scotland asked for Home Rule in the same sense that the States of America asked for it they might depend upon it that no Government would dare to refuse the national demand. In England, and America the Anglo-Saxon character absorbed the mixed characters, but it was exactly the reverse in Ireland, the fact was that the Irish Celts, or true people of the soil, had j absorbed AngloSaxonsjNormans, and everybody into themselves. [The Irish were intensely a | nation in all their sentiments and habits, and in the intense love they had for their country. Now, we denied to that nati...
The Farmer's Column. THE OIL TEST FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 February 1888
The Farmer's Column. o THE OIL TEST FOE MILK. It has been bat a short time since the oil test of the value of milk was adopted as the only correct method of determining the amount of batter in milk, and though experts were sanguine that they bad at last found an easy and ready means of detecting adulterated milk, recent experiments on behalf of the Wisconsin Dairymen's Association have demonstrated that the oil test does not give a correct measurement of the butter fat in milk. It was found that the oil of the same cow or herd seemed disposed to eelf-emulifiication on some some days more than on others, and took up water or whey in some -cases, so that a 4-pound cow seemed to become a 6-poo.nd cow iu production. Two inches of butter oil would expand to three inches from the amount of water it contained, yet ga\e no sign to the eye that it contained a drop of water. There was apparently more butter fat in the measuring tubes that a sample of gathered cream makes, as the oil and water...
Thornton. February 20. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 February 1888
Tiiornton. February 20. Cireat indignation prevails among the inhabitants,especially in theHundred of Paratoo, at the action of the authorites in not appointing a person as Councillor for Paratoo a portion of Coglin district. As Hardy, Pafrlaroo, Nackra, Cavenagh, and Coglin each are represented by one member, and G-ambowie is represented by two Councillors, for what reason Gumbowie is to the fore we cannot Understood. The Paratoo people are moving in the matter. Sowing was commenced last week, and by next week it will have become general. The weather is dry, and water carting is the order of the day. The weather of late has been very warm. To-day it is sultry, and has the appearance of change. Such would be very acceptable now after so long a spell of dry weather. Tanks and tams are getting dry, and a good, downpour would also start the ploughs again. On Wednesday last, as Mr T Pugsles was returning home from Mannaoarie sports.he was thrown from his .horse receiving some*very nasty...
