ADDITIONAL ADVANTAGE TO MEMBERS OF LIFE INSURANCE SOCIETIES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889

ADDITIONAL ADVANTAGE TO MEMBERS' OF LIFE INSURANCE SOCIETIES. TO THE EDITOB; ?Sir — That tbe various life insurance societies si 3 anxious to afford every advantage to their Ed embers is apparent to all who have watched tbeir remarkable progress, but one greater tb&ii either has yet to be afforded in order to make them all they ought to be. That they afford a certain help in event of death is true, but to many a help in time of sickness is of as ranch importance as the other, and in many places the doctor's expenses on such occasions deler many from placing their savings where they cannot be got when thus required. Were either one or all the insurance societies com ujiieu, id common wiui uuuieuows, j_»ruius, &c. , to aid pro rata in supporting at least one medico in each of the various districts for all their members being freely attended to in time of eickness, I believe the increase of members wonld be such as would amply com pensate for the additional expense incu...

PROVISIONAL TEACHERS AND THEIR TREATMENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889

PROVISIONAL TEACHERS AND THEIR TREATMENT. TO THE XDHOB. Sir — Will you publish these few remarks with reference to a new regulation emanating from Hue Education Department with the pur pose of still further oppressing the heavily oppreesed provisional teacher ? The regulation 1 refer to has been spoken of before in your columns, but I think it has not been made sufficiently clear that the public can see ita tyranny. The department says that if a wet day should come preventing any attendance the teacher must obtain the signatures of the parents certifying that the children did not attend owing to wet weather. Today has been very wet, preventing any attendance at rty school — and it is to be hoped for tbe colony's Bake that there are nume rouB small schools in the same predicament — now if I wish to throw out the day in compu ting my average attendance for the month I lauet fill m a paper and forward it to each parent whose children attend my school, in otder to obtain my salary.

Sir — Will you allow me space to make a few more remarks on onr education Bystem, as' by tbateystem we are nonrishinginfidelity to a very alarming extent and doing very serious damage to the rising generation, as testified by your correspondent ' Mercator' in a recent issue. I fully agree with most of what he says about the terrible results likely to follow such a device of the devil to corrupt and ruin our young nation in its infancy. Much has been said and written both for and against Bible-reading in State schools, but no valid reason has ever been given why the Bible should be excluded. Nearly 9,000 of 4*T\o tnnaf imfoMiafa-4 nfwnnwn l-L_A!.tL._.-^_L. voted for it some yeara ago, and respectful petitions have been sent to the Parliament, but have been treated with disregard by the few leading spirits in power.

The total amounts to £293,700,000, aB against £283,501,000 lor 1886, an increase of over £10,000.000. In these tables iB included the commerce with South America, Brazil, Mexico, the Argentine Re public* &c. In 1886 the exports to the last named country amounted to £1,040,000, aal.. the imports to £934,000, while in 1887 1!» exports had risen to £1,276,000, and the im ports to £1,075,400, an increase of £236,000 on tbe one, and £141,400 on the other. Far from congratulating themselves upon this progress, however, the Americana regard these figures with mortification. It haB been observed that of a round sum of £128,000.000, the total value of the exterior commerce of South America, the United States, in upite of their proximity, only obtain a 15th share.
