A Trip to the Laqd of the Rising Sun. (For the "Herald.") XVIII. NIKKO. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 19 September 1902
A Trip to tije Laqd of tile Rising Sun. [BY J. li. MITCHELL ] (Por the « Herald.") XVIII. NIKKO. After resting a couple of days, after our long train journey, we started en route to famous Nikko, per Japáh Railway Co.'s line-the oldest railroad in Japan. The jour- ney to this renowned place-is 100 miles distant from Tokyo, and took us 5| hours to accomplish. The last part of the trip, however, gare us a foretaste of the beauties we had come to see, in the vast avenues of oryptomerios alongside which the train- traverses for miles before reaching Nikko. The first impres- sion I received of tim world-famed district amply fulfilled its reputation, and the description I am about to give must fall short of the reality of its exquisite situation and transcen- dental beauty. Nature has cast her riches here with lavish hand, and the Japanese have known how to enhance its loveliness, with the assis- tance of their undoubted artistic taste. The temples of Nikko are the richeBt in Japan, both ...

Sudden Death of Mr. William Jones. A RESPECTED RESIDENT. FOUND DEAD IN BED. &nbsp; The news reached Windsor on Tues- day morning that Mr. William Jones, of Currency Creek, had been found dead. The sad news was soon con- firmed, and came as a shock to those who knew him, and to those who had seen him but a few hours before.

He was well-known in the district, and for a long time resided on Mr. James Cough's farm.

PASSING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 19 September 1902
PASSING KOTES. [BY "REG."] Parliament seems to be having quite an arduous task getting the j Municipal Bill through. One mem ' ber viewed with alarm the clause allowing lodgers a vote. He con I tended that railway gangs in a district for a few days could obtain the complete control of municipal matters. Now, it would scarcely be fair to disfranchise lodgers-who very often are permanent residents in a town-in anticipation of a gang of men who might never come along. And even if they did come along, nine out of every ten would not trouble over a matter of so little importance to a non-resident or non-property-holder of the borough. If they would only go a little further, and disfranchise lodgers an anxiousr--iB^b»-:^^v^'j»6r¡ fortably settle their girls-would to a great extent be solved. Anyway, lt would be safe to vaticinate a great rash on the matrimonial market/ A writer on the supposed proposal by the chief engineer of the water and sewerage board to only allow the Sydney househol...
