MINING ON YORKE'S PENINSULA. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

MINING ON YOEKE'S PENINSULA. The mining interest is (says the "YP Advertiser) just nowjin a feverish but promis ing condition, like the ocean it has it's ebb and flo jd tides. Had any one predicted five months ago that copper mining would occupy to-day such prominence in so brief a period they would have been laughed at, aud ridi culed as knowing nothing. We have had gold, silver, and even the tin boom, all of which are giving place to copper, which, l judging from present appearances, is destined to occupy the front place as far as the Penin sula is concerned. " Moonta shares, which a few months since could be bought for 10s, are now worth sixteen times thatr amount with every prospect of them touching tea pounds. The same might be said of Hamley's. The opening up of the copper discovery on Hanniford's farm has produced considerable excitement in the district resulting in pros pecting ou land all over tnat neighborhood, i^ne shaft on this property is being sunk (now over 20 feet), ...

THE BENDLEBY RANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

THE BENOLEBY "RANGES. The Pamatta correspondent of the " Port Augusta Dispatch1' writes as follows;-No sooner was the success of the mines atEukaby B ill fairh- established than two prospectors named Bill and Quia, discovered % very pro mising reef on the eastern side.of the Bendle by Ranges, and very soon a great many block* were pegged oat, and companies will be formed to work them. From one of these an. assay was obtained, which yielded about 3oz of silver and nearly 2oz of gold. The ore as sayed being from the lode, I think it may be fairly assumed that a good thing has been struck. The assay was m.ide at tho Ballarat School of mines, and majtherefore be deemed reliable.

Meditations of a Jealous Rival. Yes, here I lounge and mope, An abject misanthrope. As she walks, And looks up with winsome grace, In Ms red moustachioed face While he talks.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 30 March 1888

VARIETIES. The Chinese Government is, it is reported, about to employ a dozen bright young1 men as reporters of civilization. They -will be chosen by competitive examination, and will be sent abroad for two years to study foreign -countries. Each will take a speciality to work up, and will send a monthly report to Pekin. After .two years, the government will use the services of each in the depart ment in which he has done best, and the moft promising young men will be ennobled. The first pine-apples known in England were sent as a present to Cromwell, and the first cultivated iu that country were raised about 1715. Pine-apples are taken from the "West Indies to England iu considerable quantities, but the fruit is so inferior to that raised under glass that its cultivation for the London market is successfully prosecuted. The fruit sold in New York is greatly inferior to that sold in London. The Russian Government has been laying experiments in the capture of carrier pigeons by falco...

Marriage in the East Indies. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 30 March 1888

Marriage In the East Indies. At Trichur, in the East Indies, a town inhabited chiefly by Nairs, the land-holding class of the coast, divorce seems to be as simple as marriage is easy. The Nair lady is a very independent person. Some one offers a cloth; that is the proposal. If she accepts it that is the marriage. If she gets tired of her;husband she gets rid of him and takes np with another man, and is not held to have behaved disgracefully in so doing. To give a cloth as a present is a very common thing in India. By cloth is meant the garment worn by women in the East, and it may be very plain and cheap, or very rich and costly. But here, whatever kind of cloth it be, to give one is very significant, as a distinguished visitor to Trichur found when he offered one to a Nair lady, in whose house he had received some civility. . Whatever opinion mav be held, from a moral point of view, of these marriage relations, they result in manly males and, for the most part, comely and very ofte...
