The Battle of Gettysburg. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 5 September 1902
The Battle of Gettysburg. I After a lapse of seven years, the manage- ment of the Cyclorama decided to replace " Jerusalem" by re-erecting the masterpiece of Cycloramic Art, tbe " Battle of Gettys- burg," which caused so mach excitement here some years ago. For the hut four years America, and Europe have been searched for a scene fit to replace Jerusalem and jollow " Gettysburg," but nothing could be found that would not suffer too much by com- parison. A South African scene could not be had, a battle scene was wanted, and a constant wish being expreared by Cyclorama visitors to see Gettysburg again, it was determined-as nothing equal to it in any part of the world could be found-to re- erect Gettysburg. This has been done, and visitors to the city will, after recent events, find a special interest in seeing what war really means. The management have added a most facinating novelty to the Hall of Illusions, which, with a quantity of new Cinematograph films, make up a splendid exhibi...

LATE RICHMOND ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 5 September 1902
LATE RICHMOND ITEMS. Mrs. Arthur Hough (daughter of Senior-Constable Illingworth), with her little daughter, has been on a visit from Queensland for a few weeks. Mr. Hough also came over this week for a few days. The Richmond Amateur Dramatic Club added another brilliant success to their many previous efforts, by their, production of "Snowball," at the School of Arts on Wednesday evening. The attendance was not so large a*we have seen at previous entertainments given by the club, but, however, it was a fashionable and appreciative one, and the repeated and well-merited applause showed that the performance was up to the mark. The individual characters of the piece were splendidly pourtrayed, and the members of the club are deserving of the highest praise. Owing to the pressure on our space we are compelled to hold over a full report. Messrs. Simpson and Holdsworth, general storekeepers, Richmond, have now opened up their spring goods, and are offering exceptional value in prints, mus...
KURRAJONG. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 5 September 1902
KURRAJONG. Kurrajong farmers are very busy getting in seed for every class of herbage and produce suitable to the season ; and the demand for seed potatoes is greater than the supply. It is likely that the Kurrajong Railway League will be the last to congratulate our Member on his success in the matter of the new traffic bridge ! Mr. R. Skuthorp, of Kurrajong, had a bit of bad luck on Saturday week, losing a very valuable brood mare. In a very simple way she fell and broke one of her hind legs, high up on the thigh. The mare is well known in the district as the dam of High Flyer. She was ex- pected to foal within a month, to Simmer. On Sunday last Mr. Clarrie Smith's chestnut mare -presented him with a handsome colt foal by Claredo.

Old Times. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 5 September 1902
Old Times, We had another interesting cha " I with Mr. John Ford this week, when I the old gentleman carried us back to I the forties-to the " Good Old Days." He remembered, in about the yoar I 1843, the last regiment of soldiers leaving Windsor. It was the 50th tiegiment, and they were called away to the West Indies to fight Mr. Ford well remembers the band that headed the procession playing "O'er the HÍIIB and Far Away," and "relates what a brilliant send-off they got. In the latter end of 1843, a number of young men got together in Windsor and formed a band, which was called " The Teetotal Band." It was com- posed of fifteen players, and was con- ducted by Captain Edgerton. The names of some of the bandsmen were Michael Flood, William Alderson, and' Robert Dunston. The latter is the only surviving member, and is now residing at Freeman's Reach. The drum was made out of cask staves. Mr. Ford remarked that he was not the drummer of that band, but is proud of the fact that he was th...

Hawkesbury Race Club's Spring Meeting. -»Av . '-«JV ïhe spring meeting of the above 1 club was held at Clarendon on Satur | day last ; and it brought together a big gathering of sportsmen, in spite of the fact that the elements in the fore- noon vere very unfavorable from a racing man's point of view. There J was a fair sprinkling of local folks,* but not as many as one would expect to see. The rain in the city caused many to stay away from the meeting who, under other circumstances, would have taken the trip ; and it also bad the effect of reducing the number of fair sex that usually attend the meet- ings of the club. Mr. 0, S. Quest, tho secretary, had all the arrangements up-to-date, as usual, and everything passed off satis- factorily. Mr. A. W.
