THE PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor of The Bunbury Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 11 January 1893
THE PROGEESS ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor of The Bimbury Herald.) Sir, — In reply to your correspond ent, 'Vapour,' upon this subject, I wish to inform him that I am merely an outsider, and that an}- suggestion from me under the circumstances I imagine would be out of place. What I wished to be understood by my remarks about the business of the Association being in the hands of four or five gentlemen was, that so far as the Press report is concerned (and I have nothing else to go by) ifc would certainly appear to be the case, and I am inclined to think that through the small attendance of mem bers, 'that some of the resolutions passed at the meeting's do not really represent the opinion of the Associa tion.' It *is to be hoped that this was the case with the ' cemetery resolution.' At any rate, this is the mildest way of putting it. If Mr. Marshall had not heen thor oughly blinded by egotism, by foolish, ignorant self-ojiinion, he would have understood my letter to your eontem- ' uor...
MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 11 January 1893
MARRIAGE. ? v ? On Thursday morning last a very pretty wedding took place at the Brunswick school-room, when Mv. Reginald Withers, youngest son of the Rev. J. Withers, was united in marriage to Miss Emily Amelia Crampton, fourth daughter of Mr. John Crampton, of the Brunswick. The ceremony was performed by tho Rev. J. Withers, father of the bride groom, in a very solemn and im pressive manner, the bride's tall, handsome figure looking absolutely lovely, in a wedding dress of white liberty silk, trimmed with orange blossoms, wreath and veil. The bridesmaid was Miss Eva Crampton, sister of the bride, who looked very pretty in a white muslin dress, pale blue sash, and white silk hat. The bridegroom was attended by Mr. Luke Crampton, and Mr. Albert Hay. After the ceremony, which was very largely attended by the friends of the bride and bridegroom, the young couple left the school-room midst showers of rice. The party then proceeded to the residence of Mr. John Crampton, the father of th...
BUNBURY PETTY SESSION'S. JANUARY 6TH. (Before W. H. Timperley, Esq., P.M.) [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 11 January 1893
B UNB UR Y PETTY SESSIONS. ? o ? January 6th. (Before W. H. Timperley, Esq., P.M.) The Rev. Joseph Withers appeared to a summons to answer an informa tion, for 'that, on the 27th. da.y of September last, past, then being a umiister authorised to celebrate mar riages within the colony, he did at Boyanup perform a ceremony of mar riage between Thomas Trigwell and Ann Elizabeth Hurst, in a manner contrary to the statute in that case made and provided.' Frcm the evidence, it appeared that the defendant, under instructions from Thomas Hurst, published the banns of marriage between the parties at St. Paul's Church, Bun bury, and subsequently performed the marriage ceremony at the Boyanup schoolroom, but omitted to affix a notice of the -proposed mar riage on tbe door of the building for. three consequent Sundays as required by the Act. James Egglestone, a farmer resid ing near the school, gave evidence that the building in question was occasion ally used as a place of worship, but he neve...
DEATH OF DR. LEPPER. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 11 January 1893
BEATS OF DR. LEPPER. . [Feoh our Correspondent.] ? Vas.se, Saturday. Once more the flags have been half-masted in our town ; this time, I regret to say, for a gentleman whose sudden and unexpected death has caused quite a gloom over our whole town and, 1 may say, district — I refer to the death of our late respected Resident Magistrate and Doctor (Dr. Lepper) which took place on Thurs day evening between 7 and 8 o'clock from syncope of the heart. The news of his death caused quite a sensation; in fact few knew that he had been unwell. It was rumoured that he had not been very well since Christmas, but people took no notice of this report. It appears that ho had been laid up for several days, and those in attendance on him no ticed that he was getting worse on Thursday, and wired up to Bunbury for Dr. Lovegrove, who arrived in the evening; but it was too late, as death resulted about two hours after his arrival. Dr. Lepper, who had been a resident here for a number of years, was univ...
SAD CASE OF SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 11 January 1893
SAD CASE OF SUICIDE. A most determined case of suicide occurred here on Friday morning last. A young man named Richard Armi tage,-33 years of age, who was in the employ of Mr. J. McHenry Clark, as assistant, cut his throat with a small rusty-looking pocket-knife, at: the Wellington Hotel, and died from +.V,n wounds inflicted ron Sunday nibrnirio at a little after II t-'cl6c'k in the f ore- noon, at the Bunbury. Hospital. The deceased had oiily'b'een' a resident of Bunbury about two months; and his quiet, unassuming manner gained him numerous friends, and very ge neral regret was felt, when it became known, that the poor fellow had cut his throat. It is one of the most ex traordinary cases of suicide we have heard of for some time past. The de ceased, when asked, stated that there were no reasons whatever, either so cially or financially, to induce him to commit the rash act, and that he.felt no pain while cutting his throat in such a horrible manner, -and express ed his sorrow for w...
