CORRESPONDENCE. BRITISH V. BOERS. [To the Editor Of the ADVOCATE.] [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 5 January 1900

Early Closing. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 5 January 1900

Early Closing-. MONDAY last, or lather Tuesday, for Monday, New Year's Day, was a holiday to all concerned, saw the Early Closing Act in operation for the first time. Some hundreds of men and women, youths and girls, will now find themselves with permanently en- j larged liberties and opportunities. ' Home to tea and home to stay 1 for the first time in their weary lives, and with a chance on five nights of the week to enjoy those pleasant evening hours which are the chief consolation and recom pense of the workers' lives. There will no doubt be growling among the small shopkeepers, but a month or two will próbablysee an end to all growling. The very same volume of business will be done, and the distribution of it will be much the same as before the Act came into force. The little housekeepers' troubles, brought about by the-forgetful ness of-the. new law, will be got over. Some of our district store keepers are greatly opposed to the new Act, whilst others are equally in favor of i...

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

Volunteering. THE crowd which besieged the Paddington Barracks last week in frantic endeavor to be accepted as volunteers'would have made the Boers' hair stand on end. All day long from nine to five an eager crowd hung about the entrance to the examining hall, and each time the door opened a rush was made for admittance, ending each time in failure for the many, suc cess for the one. A varying crowd they were ; big brawny natives who could sink post-holes all day pushed about among little dapper drapers' assistants, all eager to have a go at the " Bores." It was well suggested by a disap pointed one-who exercised the true British right of ventilating his grievance in the newspaper that to save the doctor the trouble of examining some of these men, a squinny-eyed" sergeant could have seen at a glance that they would not shine at "roughing it" in camp. The second half of the Army Medical Corps will* not prove so efficient as its predeces sor: In the first place in order to make its co...

Bicycle Sports. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 5 January 1900

Bicycle Sports. Through the generous support of several business people in Windsor and Sydney a splendid day's cycling sports was enable to take ^>lace at McQuade Park on New Tear's Day. Windsor can boast of a large number of cyclists, some of whom would, with a little training, deve lop into champions, and it is to be regretted they do not all possess the same enthusiasm which a few displayed on Monday last, if they did there would be no trouble whatever in forming a "dandy" club. Let us hope that jibe recent sports will but be the forerunner for the establishment of a club worthy of the name, and instead of seeing three and four starters, we will have the pleasure of seeing a dozen or more. If the above wore properly organised there should be very little difficulty in obtaining the Council's permission, and funds to form a cinder track round the oval ; this with ordinary care would set off the cricket field, and would be appreciated'by the large number of residents who would at...

THE TRANSVAAL WAR. IN NORTH CAPE COLONY. BOERS OUT-MANOUVRED. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 5 January 1900

THE TRANSVAAL WAR IN NORTH CAPE COLONA BOERS OTJT-MANOUYBED. . Älter a series of reverses the tide of the South African campaign seems to be once again flowing in Great Britain's favor, in, at least, one of the most important districts. Major-General J. D. P. French has throughout maintained a strong Soption at Naauwpoort and Arun el, and, having an extremely mo bile force at his command-inclu ding Captain Cox's detachment of New South Wales Lancers-he has been able to beat the Boers at their own guerilla game. The enemy were out-manoeuvred from position to position for a dis tance of over 20 miles, being even compelled to vacate strongly forti fied entrenchments near Rendsburg and fall back upon their base at Colesberg. Major-General French is fol lowing up his advantage with a strong force of cavalry and ar tillery. Having been mistaken for the enemy at Arundel, with nearly fatal results, the colonial troops in this command have been provided with helmets. BATTLE AT COLESBERG. THE...

MAIZE IN BREWING. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 5 January 1900

MAIZE IN BREWING. Until recently, says the '* Far mer's Co-operative New's," harley has been the grain mostly used for rthe manufacture of malt for brew ing purposes, but with the advance of science these older methods have been superseded irv England bf the introduction of maize as a lac tor, and is'one that has many ad vantages over previous used cere als. This system, new as regards the colonies, is about to be initiated in Sydney primarily by the prepara tion called "conversion" of white varieties of maize. The grain ia degerminated by heat, freed from the covering and otherwise treated, finally having the appearance of sago technically known as grits ; a certain percentage of these grits being used advantageously in the mash. A quantity of special machinery is being imported, and those inter ested will be open to purchase white maize about May next year. (Yel low varieties are not t uitable, giv ing the beer too much colour.) Brewing by this system, though new to Australia, has...

Mark Twain's Water-melon. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 5 January 1900

Mark Twain's Water-melon. "The first time," says Mark Twain, " that I ever stole a water melon-that is, I think it was the first timé; anyway, it was right, along there somewhere-I -stole it out of a farmer's waggon while he was waiting on another customer. ' Stole ' is a harsh term. I with drew-I retired that water-melón. I carried it to a secluded corner of a lumber-yard. I broke it open. It was green-the greenest water melon raised in the valley that year. The minute I saw it was green I was sorry, and began to re flect. Reflection is the beginning of reform. If you don't reflect when you commit a crime, then that crime is of no use ; it might just as well have been committed by some one else. ïbu must reflect, or the value is lost ; you are not vaccinated against committing it again. I began to reflect. I said to myself : 4 What ought a boy to do who bas stolen a green water melon? What would George Washington do-tho father of his country, the only American who could not tell a ...

LEET S YALE. (From our own correspondent.) Mr. J. Mutton has been on a visit to his friends for the last fortnight. Mr. D. Clancy has been spending his Christmas holidays with his parents on the Macleay Biver. Miss E. O'Brien journeyed to Sydney on Christmas Eve by the s.s. Hawkesbury, and spent Christ mas with her friends. Quite a number of Sydney folk seized the opportunity of spending Christmas at the Vale, which made things more lively than usual. Mr. H. Douglas bas completed his contract in Webb's Creek of the new cutting through Mr. George Butler's farm to the New Bridge, and the work reflects great credit on the contractor. The holidays passed off very pleasantly here, the weather being all that could be desired. The only disappointment on record was on New Year's Day, when no steamer was available to convey pleasure-seekers to the tea-meeting at Colo.

England's Call to Australia. Come, all ye Australians, with hearts so brave and true, And fight for dear old England, the same as she'd do for you, Fight for our dear Queen, my boys, never be afraid     To do your duty bravely, altho' at times dismayed. You will see the battle raging, and hear the cannons roar, And will know that you are fighting as you never fought before. And as He who watches o'er us in times of peace and war Will see you through the battle against the brutal Boer. For Britain will surely conquer, and we our rights will gain, So onward, loyal Australians, and win yourselves a name. And when the battle's over, and the vic- tory surely won, We'll say, God bless old England and her Australian son. —LEE WATERS.

FREEMAN'S REACH. (From our own correspondent.) Several deaths occurred here on Boxing Day from heat apoplexy viz., a horse and three pigs. The work of cutting down the road past the school is going on apace, and when completed it will be a great improvement. A tennis match has been arranged for to-morrow (Saturday) between the Freeman's Beach and Wilber- force Clubs, on the latter's ground. A quoit tournament was played here on Christmas Day, when about 14 players took part. The result was: Mr. J. Brewer 1, Mr. Sam Smith 2. Among the visitors to the district for the Christmas holidays are Mr. and Mrs. Amos Graham, and Mr. and Mrs L. Greentree. Mr. Greentree is in charge of a school in the Cooma district. The tennis club held a picnic on the banks of the river in Mr. W. Brewer's paddock on Boxing Day. Although the day was hot, the spot chosen was nice and shady, and a very enjoyable day was spent.
