The Cemetery. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 28 February 1879

The Cemetery. The Borra Corporation at their last meeting had under consideration the enlargement of the cemetery, and in connection with that subject came up a point that is not at all to our credit as a town, and that is the fact that though the cemetery possesses, on paper, a credit balance of some .£250 ; yet there is considerable difficulty in finding the money necessary to repair and enlarge the grounds — works which can be no longer delayed, and whioh when completed will be but an -instal- ment of the many things required. If the Corporation finances were in a more satisfactory condition it would Jbe the duty of the Council- 1» refund at once the sum they have abporbedt but the difficulty is - that- they, can not finoL enough cash for their own purposes, and. at .the .last meeting.it came out that over £70 which was expected from Government as subsidy has been retained to' pay for the police, so that the funds are worse off even than was anticipated by this (in our' present p...

Open Column. The Editors do not hold themselves respon sible far the opinions expressed in this column. To the Editor of the Record Sis— Will you kindly afford me space to air a grievance that grows mare and more irksome continually. I refer to the constant practice of ' keeping in' at the Model School, children icing kept in on the slightest pretence for long periods at the most awkaril times and sometimes a whole class being detained for an « fiance committee by one or two of its members. I un quite aware that punishment of some kind is frequently necessary fbr both boys and girls, and perhaps the most effective punishment for for a neglect task is to detain the child till it is [earnsd, but I do think that for talking inattention, or insubordination some orhei punishment would be better especially when keeping in bas become so common that it bas ceased to bs a penalty to any but the parents. Ehere are many reasons why I object to th practice and why all who have suffered from it ...
