Boards of Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 11 October 1878

Boards of Advice. Is an article en the Public Schoo some time since vre remarked upon the absurdity of the pre.=ent arrangements as to Beards of Advice. : Tlie oiSce now is a sinecure and no assistance whatever is rendered to the department by these bodies. A case in point may be noticed -in iMs ?week's Education Council meeting, -where tho Port Ade laide Board of Advice justly asked why it was that a late determination to close certain schools in their district should have been arrived at without consulting them or at least seeking their advice, and this is only one example out of many. The Council in Adelaide decide ail sorts of local matters with -which they cannot possibly be well acquainted without obtaining an opinion from tho'se on the spot who are quite fniniiiar with the -whole aspect of the case. Even in the matter of deciding as to -who are fit persons to be granted the privilege of free education for their children, the Board of Advice has no power to decide, but only to...

The Rabbit Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 11 October 1878

The Babbit Bill. We congratulate our readers on the successful passage through the Houses of the Rabbit Bill which is so urgently reauired in this and other districts. The .Legislative uouncii on .mesaay passed the Biii, including only two or three unimportant amendments, which were to be taken into consideration by the Assembly on Thursday, and doubt less by the tiaie tliis is in ths hands of our readers the Bill will have finally passed its last stages, and only await the Governor's assent before being brought into operation. While we do not think the Bill is altogether perfect, yet we rejoice that at last even so much has been gained, and every day now is of importance, for as feed and water are becoming more scarce in the hills, the pests are swarming down on the farms, and along all water courses, &c, so that the greatest damage will now commence. We trust the Government will act vigorously, and at the earliest possible moment begin the work of extermina tion, and surel...

Thoughts on Education. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 11 October 1878

Thoughts on Education. (Br a Wahdeebe) Education is the problem of the day, edu cation of the masses, education by the State. Tbe cry for it has been growing louder and louder as the years have rolled by ; it has gone up from the tolling poor : it has attracted the attention of the thoughtful rich ; philosophers have studied it; divines have preached of it orators have discoursed on it; parliaments have made and unmade laws concerning it; ministries have iLsen and fallen over it, and now it sweeps in one continuous murmur round the whole habitable globe. What is it people want? It is called 'Education,' but do they all mean the same thing who use the word ? What is education ? If we can satisfactorily settle that point, we shall ba in so much better position to deter mine the best method of making our rising generation useful men and citizens. 1o this end let us examine the various kinds of educa don which have been cam d out, aid see where they landed their votaries. Then is probab...

Kooringa Cemetery. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 11 October 1878

Kooringa Cemetary.   In reviewing the public places of tbe town it is fiting that the last notice should be the one named above, the last resting place of all, and we remark upon it knowing that we are treading on sacred ground and approaching associations of a touching nature in many a heart. The Cemetery is not a place one would choose for   joyous meditatian at all times, and the more   one thinks of it, and comes iu contact with the arravgexncnteZof it, the more one tends witk fWor towards the adoptions of cremation, about which so vaadr »&af iieard a little time eiiice ; and really tue ideas connected wiih that ui!ch f'-.at is of a repulsive hatoreas do those of tta present 9tb(J m for while fire is a purify ing element, the eartyh is a defiling one.
