Education. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

Education. A RECENT writer has resuscitated the old cry that the rising gener ation is not being educated as it should. This is a fact, and we all know it ; but Governments rise and fall in this country on ques tions wholly apart from the bring ing up of youth, hence the said Governments are not vitally in terested in the question. But how often do we see on the one hand men who as schoolboys were failures attaining td good positions in the world, and . on the other brilliant schoolboys growing np into a mediocre manhood. Of this latter class it is hard to give an illustration since the medi ocrity's past is unknown, but of the former the most striking il lustration before the world to-day is Empire-builder Rhodes, who as a boy went to a good school, and had he been built that way, could have become a Don or a Wrangler. But at school he waa either a dull boy or at best a me dium youth. There must be something wrong with a system , of education which fails to dis cover the latent gen...

Such men would not march blindly ip to traps like the London-bred ' British Generals do.; they could notice if anything was wrong WÂth a clump of fallen bushes; they might put their ears to the4 ground sometimes and listen for for tho sound of footfalls ; they might observe the action pf the birds on a distant "kopje" and gather that something is there frightening them; they mighfc notice that certain hoof maries ¿were not made by big British Artillery horses ; there are thou sands of little evidences of stran gers' presence that none but at ., bushman could detect.

War Supplies. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

War Supplies. THE British press suggest that i contracts should be let to colonial . producers for the supply of wag gons, and such necessaries ot which the army in Africa stands in need. This is as it should be, but why stop at waggons? The ; army must be daily consuming thousands of tins of meat, and : their horses thousands of tons of hay. Australia being portion of the British Empire, and from her geographical position should be the natural source from whence supplies should be drawn. We have wheelwrights in every town, in the colony who can build good, serviceable waggons, and^Vould. do so no doubt for a substantial consideration. It is said the $Var Office does not fancy Australian lucerne and other fodder, but the War Office has had a little sense knocked into it lately, and since they can't get fodder elsewhere they should make up their minds to ours, even though it is not as musty as their antiquated notions consider necessary.

PASSING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

PASSING NOTES. Only three words were in the cablegram which Sir George White Seat to Lady White after the dis aster at Nicholson's Nek-"Safe but sad." General Butler's old schoolmas ter, Mr. Penrose, is not surprised to see him coming to the front, be cause "he was always, in my opinion, an audacious boy." A Capetown paper is responsible for a curious story. When the gold find on the Band came to the rescue of Mr. Kruger's ail-but ex hausted exchequer, the actual bal ance in hand amounted to 12s. 6d. in Transvaal coinage. One of the coins was a gold one, which the President thoughtfully appro priated, with the observation that lt was " the last of the old gold and the old luck." He has since then worn it attached to his watch chain, and held it in almost super stitious regard. About three months ago, however, it became in some way accidentally detached, and all efforts to recover it have been in vain. Mr. Kruger is said to have been inconsolable at the loss of his charm, which he in...

Hints to Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

Hints to Farmers. Mr. Valder, principal of the> Hawkesbury Agricultural College, gives the following Mats which should be useful to farmers: «Land should bo ploughed and prepared as rapidly as possible ni order. to sow crops to supply farra stock with green feed for winter and spring. Of course, many farm* ers will make a quantity of ensilage, and rely on this ; but no matte* how well tiie crop is grown and cured the ensilage made from it will not be equal to green fodder« It is, therefore, very necessary to try and obtain a supply of green crops right throughout the year. In many districts the climate ia against this, asoften the rainfall during the summer monthsis tod light to allow of the land being Ploughed and prepared for sowing* tut in the coastal districts there ié often more than sufficient rainfall for the purpose. In many instanced the farmer sows a fairly late crop of maize, sorghum, or Hungarian millet, which keeps his stock súp» plied with green fodder until thé* ea...

Nature and Art. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

Nature and Art. THE local artist of the Daily Tele graph might be a good man at his trade, but he evidently has not had enoug experience in the bush to distinguish a wombat from a stringybark sapling. In a re cent issue was published a sketch of "An Australian Bush Rider and Kangaroo Shooter ; " every bushman should procure a copy of this sketch in order that he may know that he is not what he j ought to be. Passing over the | shape of the horse, which seems j to have been modelled on one of the rats which frequent the King street drains, we come to the man himself ; he has a pipe in his mouth ; all bushmen smoke, you know, and a Winchester rifle, with a very long barrel, in his hand ; his hat has something genuinely unreal about it, being probably drawn from the artist's memory of a Mexican cowboy picture. The bushman has a faultless pair of buttoned corderoy pants, like the police wear, and cavalry boots and spurs, instead of moleskins and leggings ; his sad dle is far too small f...

The Lessons of the War. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

»The Lessons of the War. líQ man who boasts of British Citizenship can be other than deeply disappointed at the pro gress of the wjir. Yet when we come to examine ail the circum stances in connection therewith, it is satisfactory to see that want of courage, or warlike valour, has has not been the cause of the present unfavorable position. The first mistake made by the British (and it must be admitted that they have made many mistakes), wad in ¿heir total unpreparedness for hostilities, and the total ignor ance of the extent of preparedness in which the Boers actually were. The Government have, for some years, been painfully negligent in their duty to their soldiers and the people generati^ in4lddngaho stepe.to inquire into the military position of the Transvaal, the^ro bájale number of figjfcingi ia$ny ge'nOèS^artment % ^p^oÄ to attend to-, events haro pwed that fiufch Department, ha» signally failed in its duty.

Our Mining Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

Our Mining Industry. THIß year the colony of New South Wales, by a stroke of luck, turns out more gold than it has ever done before since 1862, as consequently a great song is being made about it. But as a matter of fact it is to the great shame of our mining legislation that the total reached 37 years ago was ever allowed to remain a record. In Victoria their legislation was forwarding and encouraging ; and ' their laws seems to have been made and administered by men who knew something of the in dustry. In this colony the chief Mining Act is a copy with varia tions of an Antediluvian Act of Victoria which has been supseded time and again in that colony by more advanced legislation. In that Act it was provided by the Victorian, Parliament that renew als of licenses would be granted on^ayment of a certain sum^of 1gi»M*$. thes^mMng syndicate ¿went on their way contented, un harassad and untroubled for another fifteen years or so. Our intelligent Assembly in adopting that actual clause...

The Coming Century. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

The Coming Century. SOME highly intelligent and esti mable people still seem to think that we have now began a new century, when, as matter of fact, we have entered upon the last year of the old one. On January 1st, year 1, jthe Christian world was made (so to speak) and on January 1st, year 2, the world was one year old, and in its first cen tury, and on January 1st, year 50, the world was 49 years old, so on January 1st, 100, the world was ninety-nine years old; therefore on January 1st, 1900, the world was 1899 years old, was in its nineteen hundredth year J and was completing its nineteenth century. On 31st December, 1900, the Christian world will be 1900 years old, not before; then we shall start the new century. The Tele graph some months ago inadver tently published a paragraph re ferring to the last year of the cen tury as being 1899, and on being asked by a correspondent if they were right they had not the moral courage to acknowledge their error, and excused themselves by ...

A Returned H.A.C. Student. It viii be within the recollection of many of our readers of the depar ture for America, some eighteen months or two years ago, of Mr. Joseph Bulkely, who had obtained a travelling schokrship given by the New South Wales Government. Mr. Bulkeley has returned after having pursued a course of study, and speaks in high praise of the American colleges. Mr. Bulkeley said they could not give the New South Wales institutions many points. They go in more for theory than in New (south Wales colleges, and their aim seemB to be more in the -direction of turning out agricul tural teachers than farmers. One feature, however, worthy of notice, was the establishment at the col leges of a bacteriological laboratory, where such questions as tuberculosis Texas fever, and other sheep and cattle diseases are made a special study. "Generally speaking," he said, "the American farmer is more up to date innis methods than the Australian, and he takes more ad vantage of labor-savi...
