Local Mining Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 March 1888

Eioeai Mining Matters. Since the formation of the Mons Aureus Syndicate con siderable interest has been man ifested ili this district with re gard to mining matters, and justnottr NsLckara seems to be the chief point of interest. Old colonists will remember hearing of the copper discovery at Nackra ili about the year 1862, but to many in the district it will be a surprise to learn that a valuable copper. mine has latterly been lying neglected and unthought of, right in our midst. That the mine was worked, however, some 26 yeatfs ago is on record, as also the fact that ore yielding some 70 per Cent, was raised and carted all the way to Gawler and Port Wakefield. About a fortnight ago a firm of Adelaide drapers, having traced the old. mine on the district map, sent up compe tent men to report on the same. Little difficulty was experienced in identifying the spot and a quantity of loose stone from the surface sent down to Adelaide went 20 per cent of copper. Almost simultaneously with ...

Useful Dairy Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 March 1888

EJsefsS ®acs*y BEiiats. Canon Barrot, in a recant lecfcnre on dairy fanning, threw out some bints well, worth remembering. It was not, he said, the cow which produced the milk alone, but the food and water which they put into her, for the animal was only the machine which produced the Tnillf 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 illtreated a cow, then she would not let down her milk, and results ironld follow. A cow most be milked with quickness, and no timi ought to be lost in getting the milk strained Into the settling pans. Having spoken oS the great necessity there was for cleanliness in order that the milk might prodnce the greatest quantity of good cream, he said milk onght to be shallow in Bumnier,. and deep in winter in the pans. But if they allowed their cream to remain too loag on the milk it became sour, and this effectually stopped the farmer obtaining a good price ...

Absconding Debtors. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 March 1888

Absconding Debtors. That the Absconding Debtors' Bill now operating between this colony and Victoria is a very great boon to resi dents in the south-east may be gathered from the following paragraph in the Narracoorte Herald The long cause list for last Friday's Local Court led to the expectation of a full day's sitting. Appearances were again deceptive, and the S. M. after going right through the list, left the bench 61 minutes after the Court opened. This was caused by about half the cases being settled between the parties and most of the rest being adjourned, Funr of the eases were agaiust debtors living in Victoria. These were all that had defended the claims under more than 60 summonses' under the inter Colonial Debts Act that had been issued in Narracoorte. One of the cases, a claim for £77, was settled in half a minute by the Defendant confessing judgment; two others were settled out of Court and the fourth, for £?, took about a quarter of an hour to hear and elided m a verdi...
