Harvey. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 10 September 1919
Harvey. (From Oar Correspondent.) The chief item of interest during the past week has been the realisation of the fact that there is to be no Show this year. Up to quite recently ; was hoped that, although the Citrus Society Committee had defi nitely decided not to hold one, some body or persons would see to it that it was not allowed to become a thing only to be remembered. There is no doubt that the gentlemen forming the committee of the society are much to blame in the matter. On all sides one hears nothing but re grets, and no pains are taken to hide the keen disappdintment that the committee have failed in their ob vious duty to the district. It was J expected that having taken the stand , they did, they would have at least called a public meeting to consider bhe question. We venture to state bhat even now this is not too late, ind if the members decide to keep bhe thing going it could be in the nature of an Agricultural .Show, as the number of stock in the district has greatly...

Fire at Sossfii Bunbury. The prompt action' and fine work of the Brigade, yesterday morning, probably saved Bunbury from a most disastrous fire. A 9.40 a 'phone 'mes- sage stated that Mr R. Fiddes' toy factory was alight and a few minutes only elapsed before the motor engine was speeding to Beach Road where the factory is situated. Superintend ant Stokes, accompanied by fireman Caddy and Tom Graham, on arrival was joined by Captain Gappy and Foreman Trigwell and six of the vol unteer brigade. It was immediately seen that it would be no use attempt ing to save the factory which was one mass of flames, so attention was given to the rear portion of the house whjch had also iernited. The fire was quick ly. conquered. and then the brigade's efforts stopped the spread of ; the fire in other directions. The factory was situated only a few feet from the house, which is a six roomed building, the front brick and the back portion weatherboard. The property belongs to Mrs I. Williams and was l...

Dardanup [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 10 September 1919
Dardanup (From Our Correspondent) The beautiful sunshine of the last few days has put quite a different aspect upon the Dardanup fields. In spite of fairly sharp frosts at night the grass is coming on nicely and lately one can fairly sea it grow. Potatoes are beginning to peep above the ground, and the crops are looking well on all the drained ground. I have noticed . patches of very seedy looking crops on undrained ground, in fact, it is almost a waste of time in this district to plant anything in the winter in water-logged country, and Dardanup requires a deal of draining. Mrs V. Coonan left on Saturday for a visit to Perth, also Miss M. Ooonan, our esteemed postmistress. who has been ill lately. I hope the change will quite restore her to health. After Wenty years continuous cut ting the Wellington Mills have had to bow to the inevitable and admit that all ' things, even vast jarrah forests, come to an end. No more will the busy hum of machinery be heard in this prosperous settle...

THE SUPREMACY OF THE SEAS. London, September 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 13 September 1919
THE SUPREMA6V OF THE SEAS. London, September 12. Mr Archibald Sturd, the well known naval writer, says that Great Britain's supremacy of the sea has been tem-; porarily passed to the United States,' which has 31 battleships in commi sion ; reducing to 29 in 1920. Great Britain has 22 battleships and five cruisers in a similar state of readiness.
