TEE CONSTITUTION BILL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 6 September 1893
THE CONSTITUTION BILL. ? ^ ? To the Editor of The Hbgald. Sir, — L think from what I can gu ther that our Premier, Sir John Forrest, has a very ungainly hobby horse in the shape of the Homestead Bill to require so much licking into shape, and where the advantages are over the land regulations of 1SS7, I fail to see. JNow under those regu lations, a man, or I should say, anyone can take up from 100 to 1,000 acres by paying on what I consider most easy term p. In the first place the land is valued at 10s per acre, or £50 por 100. On this 100 acres the Government charges 6d por acre por annum, which is only equivalent, to 5 per cent per annum, and with re gard to the improvements, which sire only for the person's own benefit, are far more easy than those under tho the Homestead Bill, and if, as I sug gested, before there had been a little modification with regard to the rent, i.e., by letting every selector have the land, rent free for r- years, and then increase it- so as to cover the...
FOOTBALL MATCH AT GREENBUSHES. GREENBUSHES, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 6 September 1893
FOOTBALL MATCH AT GRJ3ENBTTSHES. ? * ? r- (Froji Our Owm Coui^bsposdext.) Gueexbusiies, Monday. The Greenbushes footballers met the Bridgetown team on Saturday afternoon on the sports ground here. The gronndis a suitable one for foot ball, being a sand-flat known gene rally as the three C.'s ground. The only objection is that it is covered with a short scrub about nine inches high, making it bad to kick on. Punctual to time, the teams were on the ground, Bridgetown with yellow and black, and Greenbushes with navy blue colors. Bridgetown won the toss and elect ed to kick towards the Southern goal with a strong wind in their favor. From the bounce, the ball was car ried all over the field, but with the strong wind in their favor, the yellow and blacks had rather the best of the play. They failed to score, however, only a couple of .behinds being regis tered. During the second quarter, the navy blues, kicking with the wind, made the game hot for their oppo nents. A couple of shots were...

FREETRADE V. PROTECTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 6 September 1893
FBEETRADE Y. PROTECTION. -9 ? To thb Editor of The Hkrald. Sir, — Your correspondent under this head would lead the public to suppose that W.A. farmers avo an antiquatated set, far behind the rest of the world — ignoring all modem appliances for clearing and working their land. In the Southern dis tricts ho would find the ' forest devil' on most farms of any extent, and these ai*e frequently hired by smaller farmers for a small sum e& when not required by their owners. *^* He would also find donble-furrow ploughs, twine bindei*s, and on dairy farms — cream separators and oilier machinery for turning out daily pnnluco, aud had our farmers the same extent of good land as ob tains in the Eastern colonies and New Zealand, thev would prove they are neither ' foolish nor incompetent.' I am also a believer in the ' survival of the fittest,' and having known during the last 30 years farmers from all the Australian colonies and New Zealand start in bnsiness here, have watched their c...
Football. ROVERS V. BUNBURY. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 6 September 1893
Football, — ♦ — ROVERS V. BUNBURY. The first match between a local team and a team from Perth, was played on the plain on Saturday last. The Bunbury team was the same as published in our last issue, except that Fry (emergency man) was sub stituted for Port. The Rovers dur ing- the first quarter were playing 3 men short, when another man was taken on. The weather, which had been very wet for a few days previous, took up on Saturday morning, and with the exception of one or two slight show ex\s of a few moment's duration, the playei's had no cause for complaint on the score of wet weather, although the heavy rain on Friday had. made the ground little better than a bog. This, of coui'se impeded the players of both sides, and effectually barred any attempt at running with the ball. The time-keepers were Sullivan and lies ; central umpire, Scrymgour ; goal umpires,- Wallace andRolleson. At three o'clock, the players lined up. The Rover captain (Reardon) having won the toss, decided to gi...

THE BUiSSBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 6,1893. OPENING OF THE SOUTHWES TERN EAILWAY. y ? The magnitude of the ceremoirp that will uslier in the formal open ing- of the South -Western Railway on Friday next will constitute a red letter day in the annals of the Southern districts, and has every prospect of resulting in the most memorable demonstration tha&Bun- bury has hitherto witnessed. It is surprising the large amount of enthusiasm that has been generated in so short a space of time since the energetic executive committee grappled with, the subject. Far and wide from the Metropolis to the outer confines of the Blackwood the opening demonstration is the topic of the day. A review of the situation,, however, will dispel all astonishment at the feeble efforts of the originators of the movement being accorded so signal a success. Iu the first place the length of the line is second to no section of railway that has hitherto been opened in the colony, and secondly, the number of...

Education Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 6 September 1893
Education Reform. — * — By Uno. Teaching, of all professions, is one of the most harrowing. All pro fessional men have a tendency to slow down into the deep rut of monotony jjAid dull routine. If this be true of ''the Lawyer, doctor, and even the clergyman, it is no less true of the teacher. In no case, however, is the con sequence more disastrous than in the latter, when his work is allowed, day by day, to run into a monotonous groove, and he allows himself to sink into a moral and intellectual stag nation. The whole of a teacher's life is more conducive, perhaps, to this state of things, than that of any other profession. He is surrounded by a set of circumstances, which tends to depress his spirits and lower his aim. The certain daily routine leads to this : So much time has to be spent '?-—in— formal repetitions of tasks, the correction of petty faults, iteration of the same rules, the registration of at tendances. To this may be added the same discouragements have con stantly t...
