Granville Superior Public School. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
Granville Superior Public SchooL One of the institutions of which the coming city of Granville may most pardonably be proud is the Superior Public school,-' William-street. The building itself came into existence — or, rather the nucleus of the present building came into existence — in the very earliest days of Granville, and, indeed, before incorporation itself. There is a history connected with the establishment of the School which bears at once on the question of land value in crement and the old story of the Sibylline books. Well-authenticated tradition states that years ago some 20 acres of ground between William-street and the Railway Parade, were offered to the Government for £20 per acre ; but, like the ancient king, the then Minister thought the price too high. A short time later a Ministerial successor pur chased three or four acres of the same property for £500 1 The ;ite of the school is fairly well chosen; and the tiled roofs can be plainly seen from far away in neigh b...
Censorship & the S. of A. library. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
Censorship & the S. of A. Library. Something like ' a storm in a tea cup' has arisen in connection with some recent additions to the School of Arts Library. The selection subcom mittee recently purchased, with other new books, Grant Allen's ' The woman who did ' ; and whatever else thiB par ticular lady has ' did,' she has made disturbance in reading circles here abouts. Some subscribers have appealed to the president of the institution to prohibit the circulation of the book ; but that gentleman, without defending the purchase, has represented that the j book is now, for good or ill, part of the library, and he has no power to in stitute a censorship over subscribers. The decision seems the only one that oould reasonably be arrived at.

i^THE GIPSY'S . . 1 ..DAUGHTER.] fjf CHAPTEB XIV,— (Continued.) I Bose thought he was ' a great fool to 'burn up his furniture, and if she had ' .; been his wife he should not have done - it.' The pictures interested her a little , more, only she loudly and boldly / inquired, if they painted the nude figures from realfolltt, and spent some mumtes in discussing whether the , Qoeen Begent, Marie de Medicis' style of beauty -were more attractive than her own. Indeed, in all the pictures her . first thought seemed to be, whether she ? or the picture would be deemed more - beautiful. Her summing up of the ? gallery was ' that it was worth while to 1 be a queen/ and she was discontented . all the way to the Pere La C liaise, . beoause she had not been born or lifted up to that exalted condition. She disliked the famous cemetery very much. Had no idea about Abelard and other historical personages there meino . rialized, and besought Victor to go to a restaurant to dinner, instead of return...
