POOR OLD BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

POOE OLD BEITAIN. To the Editor of the ADVOCATE. Dear Sir,-Mr. Edward O'Don oghue, in a recent letter to your contemporary, states " that England (mark you, not Britain) is on her last legs, cannot rank now as a second-rate military power, is en gaged in an iniquitous war, and is unable to conquer a few thousands of undrilled farmers without whin ing to her colonies for help." Is this man not satisfied to live under the British flag ? I say dis tinctly we do not want him to live under the Australian flag, and as I have a five pound-note to spare, will gladly give it towards his ex penses to South Africa, provided he will pledge himself to join the Boer ranks, where he will get what he wants, viz, the bayonet of a loyal Dublin Fusilier in that part he sits on. His arguments are utter rot. He has posed and poses as a particular ly deep reader and smart writer, yet his last effort shows he has read without understanding, and spells Empire with an H. I must really apologise for taking n...

BENEFIT CONCERT. A. benefit concert tendered by the Riverstone Juvenile variety Company to a butcher named Reece, took place in the Temper ance Hall Riverstone, on Saturday night last. It appears that whilst Reece was returning homewards about a month ago from the local Meat Works, (at which establish ment he is employed) he had the misfortune to break one of his legs, by putting his foot in a hole along the road. The entertainment turn ed out to be a most successful one, and notwithstandingthe inclemency of the weather, the hall was crowd ed to excess. The programme, which was a lengthy one and well received by the audience, waB every thing that could be desired, every item being rendered in a first-class manner; while the accompaniments played by Miss Elsie Wiggins, were rendered in her usual faultless style. Great credit is due to the Juvenile Company for their kindly act to wards their fellow townsman, and also for the manner in which the different items were rendered. May all t...

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

FAME. i What is feme 1 bat an empty delation That men die in thousands to gain ; Often won amidst strife and contusion, ' Ott a field pîîèa wita neaps of ike slain. Hostly won on some ted field of battle, ' As often on land as on ware ; When thousands are butchered, like cattle, To furnish a wreath fox the brave. To foster ambition they're willing, Or some worthless object to gain, To take wholesale contracts for killing, And lumber the earth with the slam. In the s to rm and confusion of battle They seek this bright bauble to gain, Midst the noshing of gunB and the rattle, With their life blood they water some plain. To further some grand scheme of plunder, With rapine and murder in train ; With euch objects in view, can you wonder, That so many fools try to obtain. A. leaf from the tree of ambition, The passions of man will inflame ; And he'll sink body and sonl in per« dition, For a place in the annals of famo. O.D. ! Jan. 9th 1900. |

[Wc do not necessarily identify our selves wi'h the opinions expiessed by our correspondents.] [To the Kditor ot the ADVOCATE.] SIB,-May I ask my old friend, J.T.M-ahem! I should Bay, " M.J.Ï.''-how many miles it is from Barranjoey to Windsor ? Local geographers vary, and it ie computed as anything between 70 and 104. Why I ask is because : " M.J.T."' gives the distance be- ; tween Peat's Ferry and Wiseman's Ferry as 65 miles, which would make it 123 from the Pacific to * WindW. By the way, the paper | on " Wiseman's Ferry 25 years i ago and now," ie a very readable ¡ one, and with many of the writer's | comments and suggestions I heartily agree, especially that part ( commencing, with ''A Yankee as 1 owners of the lands here, etc.," to < the end of the paragraph.
