The Auto Fan. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 16 August 1919
The Auto Fan. The. auto fan has lots of grief; he seldom finds an hour's relief. ..-.??'. I work like thunder year by year, and all my earnings disappear; I hand them over, bill by bill, to men who claim mechanics' skill, who take my bumboat all apart and tinker till they break my. heart. My wife remarks, ' ' We all need coats, so kindly dig up''8undry groats; the children pine for cake and cheese, so shell out divers kopecks, please.' And I reply, '.'Just wait, I pray; the. auto must be fixed to-day; the clutch is busted all in two, the carburetter has the flue; and when I've paid repair-shop boobs, I '11 have to buy some inner tubes. ' ' It keeps me broke the whole year round, and I put up a doleful sound; but if you took my car away, I'd die of bore dom in a day. ROAD RISKS ON THE ITALIAN FRONT. On no portion of the war zone is driving so difficult or are road risks so great as on the Italian front. Whereas on ordinary road a skid may result in nothing worse than a fall of a few ...

Bread Unfit for Consumption. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 16 August 1919
Bread Unfit for Consumption. ? The New South Wales Government recently engineered a practical refu tation of the slander that they were compelling millers to use wheat of the 1916-17 harvest that was incap able of being made into wnoiesome bread. They secured the use of the Ultimo mill for a couple of days in order to carry out a public test of the quality of the flour made from standard wheat, which comprised 25 per cent, of 1916-17 grain, 40 per cent, of 1917-18 grain, and 35 per cent, of 1918-19 grain, such as the Wheat Board required the millers to grist. The Government demonstration gristing was done under the super vision of the presidents and vice presidents of the Royal Agricultural Society, the' Chamber of Commerce, and the Chamber of Manufactures. This committee supervised the taking of the wheat from the stocks, the milling, the delivery to the State Bakery, and the baking. The bread rolls, scones, cakes, and pastry made from the flour were publicly display ed in Challis ...

DON'TS FOR PARENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 16 August 1919
DONTS FOR PARENTS. Don't allow children to read with insufficient light, or to pore over books very long together. Don't encourage them, to be book worms; let them read to learn, not merely learn to read. Dont forget that the muscles and sinews which they are hourly devel oping, day by day, form the machin ery which is to carry them to man hood, and through life, and that they will require robustness of body as well as energy of mind. Don't be afraid to trust them out of your sight, or to give them ample liberty. Don't discourage them from having a mind and will of their own, or, even later on in life, in maintaining views which differ from your own, so that their conduct and habits are sound, otherwise they become hypocrites to please you, or have to bear, in after life, the. unpleasant reflection that their conscientious . differings from you caused you displeasure, pain, and sorrow. Don't be afraid to let them soil their fingers in manual work ; bring them up rather below than ab...

Dunkley, whose death was reported in our last issue, came to reside in Oapel some fifteen years ago, and has been a most energetic aud useful citizen, taking at all times, the leading place in every thing pertaining to the advancement and improvement of the district.

Obituaries. THE LATE MR EDWARD ARTHUR MAINSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 20 August 1919
Obituaries. — » THE LATE MR EDWARD ARTHUR MAINSTONE. The many friends of Mr E. Main stone were greatly shocked when it became known that he had been found dead in bed on Monday morn ing. The discovery had been made by a room mate at about 7 a.m., and later examination showed that de ceased had passed away some two hours previously. He had been working at the Roelands Quarry, and feeling verv unwell on Fridav after noon last, had informed the time keeper that he would not continue on the job. He left for Bunbury, arid the illness intensified, but al though strongly advised to do so, he refused to call in a doctor. During Sunday, Mr Mainstone was very ill and in great pain, but was able to walk about the verandah adjoining his room. Owing to the circumstan ces attending his death, and the fact that no medical officer had attended him, it was considered necessary to hold an enquiry. A jury was accord ingly empannelled, a post mortem examination was ordered. This was conducted by Dr Cul...

A football match, married versus single, was played on the 9th inst, for the benefit of a resident who recently lost his left arm. The sum of £10 was raised, the Greenbushes Olub donating the umpire's fees and incidental ex penses.

Dardanup [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 20 August 1919
Dardanyp Miss 0. Dillon, of Crooked Brook, after a -lengthy stay at home, has returned to her duties at the Base Hospital, Fremantle. The little boy JimX)illon»:whogot kickedby ahorse;. is, I am glad- tbrsay; btfthe high road, to recovery^ and ;I -understand will be returning hom& in about a week. The arrival of the Talawa at Bun bury- nas broken the monotony with regard ? to wharf labour, and the Dardanup station yards are unusually busy with about sixty trucks of tim« ber a day, which, together with^ the supply of empties, gives the yard quite a busy appearance. This should last for some time, and poss ibly the Apolda will give further work. Of course, there is always a possibility of the ship's boy going on strike, or the pet kangaroo refusing to eat the ship's biscuits, which would doubtless throw the whole machinery of commerce out of gear. Quite astir was caused in Dardanup when it became known that a serious case of 'flu was reported from the Wellington Jfills. This n...
