SNOBOCRACY IN BUNBURY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
3N0B0GBAGY IN BUNBUBY. To the Editok of The Heeald. Sir. — Can you tell -me— wiry— tlia-t- half-crown line was drawn on Friday last in ' connection with the opening ceremony in Bunbury ? It was of fensive to ninety per cent of the people. This was unfortunately too plain in the case of the Premier's reception as the train came in — not a ghost of a cheer when he raised Ins hat to the people, who would other wise have given him an ovation, but that their enthusiasm 'was damper] and their feelings hurt by the im pudently arranged line of demarcation drawn by the promoters. It ap preciably affected the banquet, too, as the paucity of local people was traceable to the half-crown indignity. Yours, etc., RAG TAQ.

A MONEY-MAKING RECIPE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
A MONEY- MAKING RECIPE. The only kind of ink that will print on the peouliar surfaoo of the fibre of whioh the U. a. Government note paper is made is a kind which, according to a gossipy contem porary, is manufactured from a recipe 1 lown only to one fortunate individual, who in herited the secret from his father. He em ploys, it is said, only six men in the manu facture of this ink, and none of them is in the secret, nor has anyone yet saen the in teresting aot of mixing the ingredients of which the ink is composed. The owner of the secret looks himself up in his own room for two weeks every year, and it is there and then that he mixes stuff enough to supply the Government with ink for the erguing twelve months. Tlvs little secret brings the possessor in something like £10,000 a year ! Chemios'. analyp's is sae-ningly not good for very much in the States.

Vasse. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
Vasse. (FllOJl OlHt OoilllESPOXDE.Vr.) 'Vassr, Saturday. For a few days' during '.the week we had beautiful sunshiny days, ami it appeared as if the weather had taken up, and that we were going to have some fine weather, bnt.last night the rain came down in real earnest, rin. being registered during the night, and more rain has fallen this morning. The rain is accompanied by strong gusts of wind, and it is bitterly cold. Mrs. Longbottom, I am sorry to' have to report, has again taken a turn for the worse, and the doctor holds out no hopes for her recovery. A messenger has been sect to the Lower Blackwood this morning for her sons. This news will be received with re £i*et by Mrs. Longbottom's numerous friends, as the old lady is universally esteemed by her acquaintances. I also regret that Mrs. Abbey has again taken rather a serious turn for the worse. Owing to slackness of trade, Mr. Yelverton has had to reduce the num ber of hands at his station. The sec. of the Vasse R.C. will cal...
HEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
HEAT. A question, which at times has given se to a good deal of speculation, is whether the earth is not gradually losing its heat, or rather radiating into spaoe more than it receives from the sun, and whether as it gradually cool 3 it will, ?n the process of time, become, like the moon, a dead planet. Raasoning from the nature of things, this seems to be reasonable onough, and, as we understend that it is an attribute of matter that it3 heat sba1'. be uniformly distributed, and therefore equalled, it beoomes an inter esting and intricate problem to determine just what the mean heat of the universe, to which we shall all finally be reduced, may be. li we may judge or assume from the visible effc3ts of heat upon terrestrial things, we may clearly fsoertain by compu tation that the diminution of the heat of the ^earbh, by one degree only, would cause 'a sufficient contraction of its mass to acceler ate its diurnal rotation by 6 minutes 46 seconds of arc, or 0,43 of a second of time i...
CAUSE OF INSOMNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
CAUSE OF INSOMNIA. Now, it happens in this stirring age of ours that men — ard women, too — are so muoh intellectually worked, or so emotion ally disturbed, that their brains have more to do than they oan accomplish, and yet preserve their normal balance. Mental intellectual, emotional or volitional activity, requires that an increased amount of blood shall flow to the brain ; henoe, during men tal exertion of any hind, the cerebral vessels become distended owing to the increased volume of blocd they contain, and they re main in tbis condition as long as the exer tion is continued. If it is too intense or if ifc be persevered in for too long a period without there being altemat'.ons of rest, the vessels lose the'r contraotibility and remain in a permanently enlarged state. They are, therefore, not able to contract so as to pro duce sleep. A state of cerebral congestion is established, and wakefulness is the result. Such persons go to bed, perhaps feeJing as if they would eleep, bat ...

Our Railway Line. OPENING CELEBRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
Our Railway Line. OPENING CELEBRATION. The South-Western Railway open ing clcbration, which look place on Friday last, will be acknowledged the most successful demonstration ever witnessed in any provincial town in -\ the colony, and the committee, and especially the indefatigable lion, sec, Air. P, E. Stafford, must be compli mented on the result of their labors. The duties which Mr. Stafford had to perform, since his appointment in con nection with the arrangements for ?'^k.the ceremony were very great, and kept that gentloman constantly em ployed and it will be gratifying to find that bis efforts have been ap preciated. His Excellency, the Governor, Sir 'Wm. C. F. Robinson, the Premier, Sir. John Forrest, and visitors, were tnefc at the Brunswick by the com mittee, and on alighting from the »?* train, His Excellency and party were loudly cheered and enthusiastically welcomed. The whole party then came down to Bunbury in the special train, and were handsomely entcr ' tained en rou...
Pinjarrah. PINJARRH, Tuesday [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
JL 1 11 j cl 1 1 cili. ? ^ ? (Form Our Courkspondext.) Pxnjariiau, Tuesday' A very enjoyable social was ten dered to Mrs. Sutcliffe on Saturday evening when our good old postmis tress 'was made the recipient of a purse of sovereigns as a slight token of the respect and good feeling to wards her in the Pinjarrah distinct. Although the rain kept many at home who had long, distances to come, tho . Mechanics' Hall, where the social, was held, was filled to. overflowing. Mr.l Paterson, M.L.A., was present especially for the occasion, and made a lengtuy speech eulogistic of Mrs. Sutcliffe, and read a letter from the Postmaster-General, stating that no officer in the postal service could hold a better record than she. does for her* 25 years in the department. Mrs. Sutcliffe was then presented with the purse by Mi-s. Fawcett, who made a feeling speech, bearing testimony to the esteem in which the people throughout the district, hold her. During Mrs. Fawcett's address many present were moved...
THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE'S ARRANGEMENTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
TKJh 'EXECUTIVE ''COMMITTEE '8 ARRANGEMENTS. To .'the, 'Editor of The Hbraivd. Sir. —Kindly permit 'me to voice the feelings of a large proportion of the people of this town re the Exe cutive. Committee's arrangements in connection with the recent demon stration. I- was in Bridgetown on the nis-ht that the rmblic nieetino- was held in Bunbury to consider what steps should be taken to. suitably mark the opening of the railway. From the report, of the proceedings which I saw in the public prints, I was led to understand that the demon stration was to be organised on behoof of the people of Bunbury and district, and that various dis tinguished guests were to take part in the proceedings. In other words, a public meeting appointed a public committee to carry out a pnblic demonstration in which the general public might participate. I took it that any demonstration of the kind would be as comprehensive in its character as possible ; not catering for the tastes of a select few, but a demon...
Greenbushes. DISCOVERY OF A TIN LODE. GREENBUSHES, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
Greenbushes. DISCOVERY OF A TIN LODE. (Fkoji Our Correspondent.) Greenbushes, Monday. From reliable authority I learn that two gentlemen — Messrs. Reid and Millar are making arrangements '*?-«*' with the Government for a block of land on condition that they spend £20,000 in a given time in developing the same. This block- has already been reserved, and comprises about 1000 acres, which action caused a r~- lob of discussion and indignation ~— among the miners at first, as they were left in ignorance of what it was j reserved for, and especially as the area reserved takes in the best claims j at the Greenbushes end of the field, I where most of the prospecting has I been done of late. But now that it 1 is known for what purpose it is re- -j| served, the minors rather favor the % movement, provided the work will be -*3fp carried on on a sound basis. \V: Messrs. Magowan, Bros., at a depth % of 25ft., have struck a lode bearing ( good tin. This is the first lode that \ has been struck he...
MR. PATERSON'S SUGGESTION AT TEE BANQUET. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 13 September 1893
MR. PATERSOWS SUGGES TION AT THE BANQUET. ? * ? To the Editoe of Thb Hekai/d. Sir, — At the banquet on Friday night I was by no means surprised that the Premier seemed amused attheimpudenceof the member for the Murray asking that the money intend ed to be spent on our station should be transferred to the fund for the construction of the Bojranup-Vasse Railway. It was certainly an ori ginal conception for raising the wind and well worthy of the great brain that introduced it, and fully on a par with that gentleman's other qualifica tions to direct and advise the Govern ment on financial matters ; but con sidering there is no money available as yet for the erection of the station, I fail to see how it can be transferred. Mr. Patterson, the member referred to must have been taken suddenly with a fit of retrenchment, and his affliction has come at a very conveni ent time in his estimation, when it is remembered that Pinjarrah — the centre of the district he represents — has got. all and...
