Brewer has one of the best and \ earliest crops of potatoes in the district. * Mr. Frank Wood has also a fine crop on the , adjoining farm. * The recent frost did a lot of damage to i the melon and pumpkin crops in the district. 1 Mr. J. Cannon lost a good lot of healthy 1 vines. &lt; During the past week every farmer on the : Beach could be seen toiling on their farms, * getting ready for planting. Not one half of the maize is yet planted on account of the recent flood being over a large proportion of the land. \

A Grand Concert [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 October 1899

Father O'Brien in aid of the concert fund, which takes place at the School of Arts, on Tuesday evening next promises to eclipse anything of its kind ever held in Bichmond. The fact of each brilliant artists as Miss Millie Wynne, Miss Maud Dalrymple being present should be sufficient to ensure a bumper house, be- sides the many other well-known vocalists who have promised to assist. Those wishing to see a good concert should not miss this opportunity.
Conversational Quotations. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 October 1899
Conversational Quotations. Some of those phrases which by con- stant use have become incorporated in our mother-tongue, whose origin some of us might not be able to indicate off- hand, or which by popular error have been wrongly assigned to this or that writer, are the subject of an article in " Chambers's Journal," from the pen of Mr. Charles Hussey. For instance, Sam Weller did not ori- ginate the expression "Wheels within wheels," as many suppose ; he used it, truly, but the idea is from the Bible (Ezekiel x. 10). Another Biblical expression, which would hardly be recognised as such at first sight is "The skin of my teeth" (Job, xix. 20). We are indebted to Cervantes for the proverb " Honesty is the best policy," while the familiar phrase " Diamond cut diamond" is due to Ford, the author of " The Lover's Melancholy." Although Sheridan's well-known cha- racter Mrs. Malaprop did " own the soft impeachment" we must credit Shaks peare with the origin of the saying that " comparisons ...

Four Thousand Degrees Above Zero. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 October 1899
Fear Theasand Degrees Above Zero. If the claims that are made for the invention are well founded, there has been discovered a means of producing a degree of heat vastly more intense than ever was pro- duced through human agency before. While details of the in- vention are being kept secret, it is learned that the process consists in the use of kerosene oil and steam in such a way as to produce a temperature of about 4,000 degrees at a very slight expense. So in- tense is this heat that it melts platinum and carbon with ease, and even magnesia, considered one of the hardest substance to fuse, is melted almost as quickly. Ordinary iron and steel burn like paper in the fierce blast, and samples of fire brick that were be- lieved to be absolutely incombus- tible have been melted to lumps of earthenware by its means. Women are truly more religious than men. Look at the way they kiss their enemies.

And he triumphantly marched off with them to the station-blaine, be leading the Italian aad the Italian leading the bear. When arraigned before the magistrate, the Italian pleaded guilty, and the magistrate gav« bim a most severe and thrilling lecture on the enormity of bis offence, ending by fining him £2, the full penalty provided. The culprit had a lot of small change ia bis pocket, but (it being mostly pennies) it only counted up to thirty shillings. For a few me- rn ents the magistrate was in a quand...
