Poetry. THE GAME OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 18 June 1881

Poetry. THE GAME OF LIFE. With eager hand Hope deftly weaves The mantles that our pride would don While busy-fingered Care unreaves The garments as we put them on. We rear our palaces of joy, And tread them with exulting shout, Till, crumbling round, 'tis plainly found Some corner-stones have been left out. And thus we play the game of Life. Shadow and substance ever blending ; 'Mid flowers of Peace and tares of Strife Gaily beginning, sadly ending. The maiden greets her swain to-day. They jar to-morrow, and she flouts him ; Now she believes whate*er bell say, A month has gone,-Alas ! she doubts him ; The lover hangs upon a glance, With glowing trust and earnest suing ; Next year he rouses from his trance. And scorns the one he late was wooing. And thus we play the game of Life. Our dreams dispelled, our plans defeated ; And when we've lost with pain and cost, Still stand as ready to be cheated. The cooing infant's rosy mouth Aptly receives the sweetened potion ; When waves are calm...

The Farmer. RURAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETIES. (From the American Agriculturist.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 18 June 1881

The Farmer. RURAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETIES. (From the American Agriculturist.') THE organization of a Rural improvement Society being completed, what should be its first work ? If there is anything that gives an ide.i oí refinement within the farm house, it is a neat approach to it, a well-kept front vard. The Ex-, cut ive Committee of ope, if it makes its fir.-.t visit to ihe front yard should pass right through it to the back yard and sit in consultation on the condition of the srck spout, it is delightful to have a verandah shaded by vues with fragrant flowers, but where does your kitchen sink spout termi- nate ? If horrid smells come from that spout, so much the better, as these may call atten- tion to the matter. This being the weak spot in the arrangements of the majority of country houses-the disposal of the kitchen Waste it is the first thing that should receive the at- tention of our ** Bural Improvement Society." Ah ! many a little coffin has gone out of the front door becaus...

CLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 18 June 1881

CLIPS. The Pour Richest Mea in the World.-Some i rather interesting particulars have jost been pub- lished as to the foar men who are supposed to be the most wealthy living. Of these the poorest is his Grace the Duke of Westminster, whose income is set down at £800,000 a year. Taking it at that sum, the amount which the Duke can spend without entrenching on his capital is £2000 a day, £90 per hoar, and £1 10s a minute. The next man in the ascending scale is Senator Jones, ot Nevada, whrs* income is valued at exactly one million sterling, giving him the- right to spend, if he likes, £2 a minute oat of revenue. The head of the Roths- child fiunily comes next, with a yearly income of two millions, and the expenses which he can defray thereout are, of course, double as «rreat as those of the Senator. At the top of the lise comes Mr. J. W. Mackay, with a revenue of 2J millions, which enables him to disburse £7000 a day, £300 an hoar, and £5 a minute. The fortunes of the other three are i...

Richmond. [FROM OUR, CORRESPONDENT.] BOROUGH COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 18 June 1881

Richmond. [FROM OUR, CORRESPONDENT.] BOROUGH COUNCIL. THE regular meeting of the Council should have boen held on Wednesday evening, but as only four Aldermen. Messrs. Heid, Col »cruft, Onus. jun., and Kelly, were present, no quoroum was formed, and the meeting lapsed. This is the third consecutive meeting which has lapsed for want of a quorum ; and if the Aldermen have any idea of the responsi- bility of their p sition, they should take immediate steps to prevent a repetition of so disgraceful an occurrence. It seems, frum what I can understand, that the Works and Park Committees have expended mure money than they could legally do without the sanction of the Council, and now refuse to meet their brother Aldermen till they are certain of having a majority. The other side remained away last week., and now that each have had a turn, I suppose something will be done next weak. In consequence nf this dead-lock, several poor labouring men have been kept out of their hard-earned wages ove...

PINS. "Cum grano salis." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 18 June 1881

FINS. " Cum grano salis." WITHOUT going critically to work to point out the many excellencies of Richmond, or its many deficiencies, as compared with Windsor, I can with perfect safety lodgers tenner on this : that Richmond Church bf Kngland Cemetery is a credit to the town, and to the people of that dénomination, and to the rev. gentleman who keeps them np to the mark. One of the «orst features of country towns is their neglected cemeteries -Windsor's, for instance. The sister town has no such blot on her escutcheon ; she hasf so far as one denomination is concerned, na little burial ground to be proud of. The paths are well kept, the grass is moderately well cut down, the grave spaces appear to be kept methodically, and altogether a geMÇ* ral system of order prevails. S^f* " Happy as a marriage bell !" ' I hope j so ; and if grand doings, shivos, and splen-\ did equipages have anything to do with the article above mentioned, our fair young towns- woman who so lately has entered di...

THE AGES OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 18 June 1881

THE AGES OF MAN. (By Thomas Fiasehi, M.D.) THAT things to us most familiar are those that we know best, is a fact generally recog- nised. All of you have constantly under your observation babies, children, adults, and old men ; still, I believe that few amongst you have taken the trouble to string together these various phases of human life, and see in what way one is linked with the other, and in what they really differ. This is what I in- tend to do for you to-night. At the same time, as you all know how few amongst men have the privilege to attain the extreme limit of life, fewer still amongst them, those who have retained their various faculties unim- paired till the last ; I will try to pointout how, at any moment, we can so use up our powers as to lose those phases of life through which we would still have to pass. -s It is a common saying that our life rests-in our own hands, and if not totally true is to a great extent. In studying diseases we find that some of them are due ...

HOW TO MAKE HENS LAY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 18 June 1881

HOW TO MAKE HENS LAY. A CORRESPONDENT of the American Poul- try Yard gives the following bit of expe- rience :-" A neighbour of ours, whose hens, to our exasperation, kept on laying when eggs were 45 cents per dozen, while ours per- sistently laid off during the same season, on being questioned revealed the fact that his hens had a pailful of skimmed milk each day and no other drink. On comparing notes we each found that our management of our fowls was almost exactly alike, with this single diffe- rence-a difference which put many a dollar to the credit side of his ledger, while our own was left blank during the same period ; and this thing had been going on for years, with the result always in favour of a milk diet. In cases where milk is very p euti/ul, and only a portion is needed for fowls, it would be well, say once a week or oftener, to give the milk in the form of curd, by heating it until the whey separates from the more solid portions. This is very nutritious, and its const...

SMALL POX. To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 25 June 1881

SMALL POX. To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Chronicle. SIR-As this fell disease is now likely to ravage the colony, every possible means ought to be taken to stay 4its course. Those who live in towns have easy access to doctors, vac cinators, et hoc geuus homo. Those who dwell in isolated country parts are not in such danger of infection. At this place, however, we are placed be- tween two tires. In the first place we have plenty of communication with Sydney to bring the infection to us, but no vaccinator to prevent, or doctor to cure, should the scourge appear any day in our midst. Would it not be easy for a Govtrnment Vac- cinator to visit us, say once a week for a month ? This is a central spot, and children could come from all parts of the river ; but many a poor family cannot afford the expense of one. possibly several, visits to Windsor. I myself know over eighty children within a dis- tance of five miles, not one of whom has been vaccinated, and of these I do not believe ten w...
