AUBURN. A Visit to the Public School. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 7 September 1895

AUBURN. A Visit to the Public School. The Auburn Public (School— the only j one strictly within the Borough — occupies a fairly central position ou the Auburn Road. It dates back to 18H5, when it was opened with an enrolment of some 180 children, under Mr. J. B. Mills (who is still th-! head-master). The enrolment has increased by over 100 per cent, since that date — standing uow at 980 — notwithstanding the opening of a second school, just outside the northern boundary of the municip ality. The average attendance at present is: Primary Department 101, Infauts' Department 118 — or just over 800. Our representative visited the school last week, aud was courteously received by Mr. Mills and staff. One of the first things to strike a visitor to the school is the attempt at arboriculture along the main frontage. Representative trees and shrubs of two hemispheres are here rising before the eyes of young Australia ; and the right to dig awhile in the enclosure is a favor prized by most of...

Baptist Church. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 7 September 1895

Baptist Church* On Monday evening last, the Rev. Dr. Porter, delivered a lecture on ' Tbe I House We Live In.' There was a good [ attendance ; the liev. K. Price presided. After singing and prayer, he introduced the lecturer. Dr. Porter dealt chiefly j with the oseous system. Our bodies were like frame houses. The bones were the frames which hold the body in position, and gave it correct form. ^ These holies were of different shapes, and were united together by a variety of methods. The bones wore hollow, which increased their strength. Bones were composed of animal and mineral matter—the latter give firmness, and the former elasticity. Without tho animal property, our bones would bo brittle, and would easily break. Without the mineral, onr bones would not Ik* rigid enough to support the body, but would easily bend. The various joints were described, and it was shown how every joint was adapted to the particular movements required. God, our Maker, had arranged the whole upon a princ...
