IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mining Record and Grenfell General Advertiser — 12 September 1868
IMPROVEMENTS. . Acim and liberal as hare been the people of ' Grenfell in erecting public, edifices which were necessary for the welfare of the district, yet it Is undcnlablo that two works remain unprovided for wbicb imperatively require immediate attention. The first is the con. - etrnetion of a fence round the cemetery, ro that tho indecency of cattlo and swine being allowed to run over tho graves rosy be pre vented, and the second I* the erection of a powder-magazine. WUb respect to tbo eemctery, it hardly seeds any argument, wo should imagine, to indole the publio to look into the matter, and get it attended to. The cost woutd be so trifling, and U Is so obviously a proper thing ? to be done, that it only requires to be brought forward in' some tangible war for the neces sary funds to bo raised. As to the powder iragaxine— that Is even of -more Importance than tbo question of fencing in the graves of tbo dead. Tho one is a-questlon of feeling, taste, and decency i the other is,...
