LONGREACH STATE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 28 June 1892

LONUllEACH STATE SCHOOL. A MEETING was held last week jointly of members of the State School and Progress Association Committees to consider the best means of raising funds for the erection of State school buildings. It was shown that in dependent of monies in hand and promises made £110 was wanted to make up the one fifth required by the Education Department before the erection of buildings could be pro ceeded with. It was decided that the erection of the school should be undertaken at once, and that the amount required be borrowed upon personal security of the members of committee, the monies to be refunded as funds came to hand. It was resolved to get up a series of entertainments with this end in view, the first being a plain and fancy dress ball to be held in the hall on the 13th July. Tliis will probably be followed by a dissolving view entertainment a fortnight later, contributed by the proprietors of the Champion, assisted by local amateurs.

ARBORICULTURE AT ARAMAC. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 28 June 1892

ARBORICULTURE AT ARAMAC. A couuespondent complains that no mention ?was made in the School-Inspector's report of the work done on Arbor Day in the grounds of the Araniac State school. Our informant writesYour readers will be aware that the Inspector has not yet visited Aramac, and con clude that no notice was taken of the trees in this school reserve because they were not worthy of noticing. On Arbor Day of 1890 six trees were planted - the first sent to Araniac for that purpose. Of these four are growing and wondrously healthy, i.e., one jacaranda with finely developed leaves, but of moderate growth, one gyrocarpus, and two white cedars of phenomenal development, and which stand quite six feet high already. All testify to great care on the part of the school master, Mr. Johnston, who has in many ways wrought great improvements within the school grounds.

The " Death Watch." A HOUSEHOLD PEST WHICH MAKES UNCANNY NOISES. Who has not heard tho "death watcli." Many a person wlio has happened to be awake ?in tho stillness of the night nas listened to the tick, tick for half a dozen times or more in succession as regular and as natural ob the ticking of a clock. Many hare regarded the sound with superstitious awe and dread, be cause everything about it is so mysterious. The name death watch is derived in this way, as a person si'&iog up with tho sick is more apt to hear such sounds, and when they were heard at sucli times, it was considered aij ill omen to the sick one. Some intrepid person dared to brave this messenger of death, and found, instead of the supposed spirit, a guile less, timid little insect. However, the name is still retained, and no doubt many still won der what makes that peculiar sound and why it is made. It is wonderful that the mere tick/ tick, tiok of this harmless insect should cause such fear and dread in so...

I looked to see what my hand bad touched.
