A Trip to tlie Lai^d of tile Rising Siin. [BT J. it. MITCHELL.] XVII. KASOAKO AND NIKKO. | We arrived in Kobe after a little delay-through a railway accident, which caused the death of a railway porter. We immediately put up at the Oriental hotel for a few houre prior to starting for the village of Kasoaka, the centre of the strajv plait industry. After equipping ourselves with the necessary clothes for a week's tour, we left by the 11.15 p.m. train for the village named. As the journey was to | occupy six hours, we engaged sleep- j ing berths, and were not long before we stretched ourselves out in the comfortable compartments provided. The sleeping cars are built on the American system, and to every four berths is an obliging boy, who is ever watchful that nothing dis- turbs your peaceful slumbers. Oh nearing Kasoaka our little attendant . called us up, allowing us ample time to dress before reaching that station. " We arrived there at 6.15 a.m., being met by quite a number of Mr. ...

TENNYSON. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 5 September 1902

TENNYSON. Beautiful showers fell here during last week. Latterly one has grown accustomed to a pensive countenance, grumbling at the protracted drought, accompanied with looks of morbid i expectancy cast at the cloudless heavens, so it is quite refreshing to note the gladsome, illumined coun- tenances, and the pleasing, almost gorgotten phraze, "Nice showers we've been getting." We regret that Mr T. Kiley is still unable to leave the hospital. It is now some weeks since he entered that institution, and during that time has been very ill-so ill as to cause his relatives serious apprehensions. The McMahon Bros. have nearly completed fencing the road through their properties. Numbers of the residents are putting in crops in. " the hope " that we will get a good season. Mr. Editor, it is wonderful how we people on the land thrive on hope. It ie the am- brosial nectar which has sustained us during the depressing drought.

MILITARY SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 5 September 1902

MtXITAEY SOCIAL. A military half-night social in con- nection with "D" Eichmond Coy., held in the drill hall on Wednesday evening of last week, proved one of the most successful ever held in the hall. The hall was artistically decor- ated with flags, paper chains, and Chinese lanterns. The latter were illuminated with candle lights, and presented a very brilliant and pretty appearance. Among the flag decor- ations was a " White Ensign, ' which was brought from Ladysmith (Natal), by Pte. W. E. Drayton, of the 5th Australian Commonwealth Horse, and kindly lent for the occasion. A com- mittee, consisting of Sergt. Buckton (hon. treas.), Bugle-Major Travis, Ptes. Knott, Marlin.W. Drayton, G. Drayton, Hanchett, Bugler Eeay, and Corp. G. Mortimer (hon. sec.), worked well to make the social a success. Speciul praise is due to the following committee-men: Bugle-Major Travis, Sergt. Buckton, and Ptes. Knott, Marlin, and W.

VINEYARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 5 September 1902

VINEYARDS. Everyone is jubilant over the copious downfall of rain this week. Ail the tanks and water holes have been re- plenished, and orohardists and farmers are able to get to work on the land again. It has been a very trying time for the settlers' around here _ during the past twelve months, but it ' is to be hoped that the time of drought and adversity will give place to times of good season and plenty. Mr. J. Alcorn had two of his best horses die a short time ago. He puts it down to too much hard feed. He was working at Gore Hill with them at the time, and only recently was offered £50 for one of them, which he refused. Mrs Moss is improving in health, but still suffers with rheumatics. We trust the good lady will'soon be quite recovered. Mrs. A. White, who hu been ailing for mas weeks, is also on the mend.
