SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 5 January 1900

SOCIAL. A very enjoyable day was spent I at Caddai Bridge on New Tear's Day, when some 80 or 100 hied i away to the picturesque little spot J to pass the holiday in picnicing. The day was all that could be de sired, and judging from the jovial j expressions on the faces of those assembled, one may well say that care and sorrow had died with the old j ear. The party was composed of visiters from various parts of the district. The day was spent in boating, plucking wild flowers, and love making on the green, till the shades of night began to gather, when a start was made to the resi dence of Mr. D. Greentree, where dancing was in full swing on a floor that was all thatoould be desired. The room was tastefully decorated for tho oocaçiqnv The music was supplied by that able trio, the Misses T. M.

DARING ROBBERY. £ioo Worth of Jewellery Stolen, On Wedaes&p fright lost a very daring robbery was committed at Miss Dick'« residence in Fitzgerald street, when jewellery to the amount ot £100 was stolen. It appears that Miss Dick bad gone ont, ae had'also Übe housemaid, and on returning home ¿bout 10 o'clock found that a robbery hed taken place. It is believed that the thief or thieves discovered the key of the door where Miss Dick wee al «raye, in the habit of leaving it whUe away from the house, and gained an entrance through the door. Most of the stolen property were valuable presents, and were greatly prized by Miss Dick. Two purses I were stolen containing about £2 in cash, and strange enough a valu able gold watch which was among the other jewellery had the appear ance of having been over-hauled and placed back again. Without doubt, when the time that the rob bery took place is taken into con sideration, the deed was a daring one, and we venture to say the per petrator...

rÓmí oftheinany urgent???'^t^aám-^ that Mr.Lyne is going to make with a stroke of his official pen* is in connection with the Agent General's office. This institution needs thorough reforming beyond a doubt ; it is wrongly adminis tered from top to bottom. In the first place the Agent-General him self, instead of being an ordinary sharp witted individual well up in pork, in the price of wheat and quality of butter, is a high-class individual in a top hat and frock coat, who could not turn over a carcase of frozen meat because he has gloves on, and who would not know how to go about it if he condescended to take them of£. Our Agent-general is a man who moves with the nicest people, attends brilliant social functions^ makes patriotic speeches, and drinks champagne with royalty. .What we want is a man who can. talk" shop" intelligently with, men in the trade ; who can push, the advantages of New South Wales butter or ham into the notice of the wholesale dealer; who can also write an in...

];THE BOER HEADQUARTERS. It has been known for some time past that the Boers were mustering in constantly-growing strength be tween Colenso and Springfield (about 18 miles to the westward), a recent estimate being that fully 12,000 Boers occupied the part of the country. It is now reported that Com mandant General Joubert's head quarters are ensconced amid the hills near Springfield. It is also believed that the Isimbulwana siege gun has followed the head quarters, and been placed in posi tion on the south side of the Tugela. The Colenso-Ladysmith main trunk railway line has been de stroyed by the Boers.
