Education Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 10 May 1893
Education Reform. — ♦ — Bt Uxo. In my last comnrurn'cation I had Occasion to refer to the AiuficT condi tion in -which the Government schools Of the colony were held in the opinion m of the public. The causes conspiring thereto are too many and involved to treat of in the limits of this paper. ffl vme of the main causes has already H been dealt with in exienso by vour B ^contemporary, the Wed Australian. B I shall, therefore, only briefly allude H to the fact, that under the guise of a H National system, assisted schools are W~ toiaintamed to the impoverishment of ? those established and supported I purely by the State; and no other ? teffect can be anticipated until a tho I ' tough State system bo adopted. An |c other., and, perhaps, even greater B cause is the segregated method pur ? Rued in our principal towns by split ? ting tlie schools into three divisions I''—- of boys, girls and infants. There is I certainly no argument in support of I the continuance of this method that I c...

Greenbushes. GREENBUSHES, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 10 May 1893
Greenbushes. — $, — (From Ouit Correspondent.) G-reexhushes, Saturday. There can hardly be any doubt but that winter has set in here. For over a week we have had rain more or less every day, to say nothing of the quan tity fallen at night. If this sort of weather continues until the regu lar rainy season, we may expect to have higher floods than we have had these last ten years. As an evidence of the porous na ture of this part of the country. I may mention that although such a lot of rain has fallen, there have been no pools of any consequence formed in gullies or water-courses on the tin fields — nothing near enough to start tin-washing with. Our energetic surveyor, Mr. Brazier, is making rapid progress with the work of talcing the levels for the in tended water scheme. An application was made a fort night ago for the forfeiture of Mr. Austin's 20-acre lease, for noncom pliance with the labor clause. I understand the registrar has granted the application, but is pursuing a rather ...

Vasse. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 17 May 1893
[?] [From ouu Correspondent.] Vasse, Saturday. In my last I gave you an account of the cricket match played at, Dunns borough as supplied to' me by one of the cricketers which I am informed by another player was incorrect ; and in justice to the Upper Quindalupites, make this correction. It appears that the grand total made by the Dunnsborough team when the stumps were drawn was 70 odd, and not 70 in the second innings alone as I at first reported. Therefore, according to the rules of cricket, the Upper men were the winners, as the match should have been decided on the first innings. A return match is to be be played at the Quindalup mills. Mr. E. H. Pries has been away at Karridale during the week, having been instructed to go and inspect the new line and p-tt tho new battery in order at Karridale. The latest news from Quindalup states that matters are very quiet there. The cutter had gone to Bun bury with timber, and was to bring back a supply of stores, etc. While speaking of shi...

The Small-pox.' TWO MORE CASES IN PERTH. THE EIGHTH DEATH. [by electric telegraph] (From our own Correspondent.) Perth, Saturday. Two more cases have been reported during the last few days. There is clear evidence that the epidemic is abating. The present fine weather is all in favor of stamping out the disease.

Halli burton has a wife and 3 children, living in. a tent, on the outskirts of the. city.

A youth, named Edward Wholoham succumbed to the disease on Thursday, making the eighth death to date. He was un vaccinated, and the attack was very severe in consequence. He was only nine years of age, and much sympathy is felt for his bereaved relatives. ...
