FREEMAN'S REACH. (From our own correspondent.) We hear that Mr. Izzard is to take charge of Mr. Moses' farm at the Bull Ride in place of Mr. E. Martin, who is giving it up. Large quantities of potatoes are being sent to market from this dis- trict, but they are not realising very good grices.--The maize crops &nbsp; look well, but would be all the bet- ter for a shower of rain just now. The roads about here are very dusty at present. The work of cutting down the hill past the school is finished, and it is now being gravelled. Mr. Jeffries has the work in hand, and when com pleted it will be a great improve ment. A party, consisting of Messrs. Reuben Greentree, Herb Greentree, George Graham, Jas. Hibbert, and Joe. Greentree went on a trip down the river as far as Broken Bay, &nbsp; &nbsp; last week. On their way back they spent two or three days at Colo. They report fish as being scarce there, but orange wine as very plentiful. &nbsp; Last Tuesday even...

John Ruskin. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900
John Ruskin. ' THE death of this eminent writer .removes from the world the personalty of one of the leaden* fifmàiè^.^^^^ an ar£ critic^-J^^^ES^ib: ^ &lt;e4í^U"" ''afctÁ''I¿|¡»í many ^ rijtings on Art are quite readable and interesting, even to a person who knows nothing o£ Art. In his political writings, however, he influences a greater number of minds to good. " There» ate books for tooday," says he " and books for all time." Books, according to him, are kings and queens ; does anyone desire the companionship of great men, let him go to the bookshelf and choose his companion. Some ot Ruskin's political sayings sound very like what we are accustomed to scoff at when coming from a frothy demagogue. " Reform your schools" says he, "and you will want no gaols." To say that his doctrines are impracticable, i» not sound; the same might be said with equal truth of the doc trines of the New Testament, Of a truth John Ruskin's political writing are alike the writings of that famou...

The Constitution Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900
The Constitution Bill. Ip it were not for the war, Feder ation would hare assumed a most important position again by now in our daily life. As it is how ever, people have no time to think ' and talk about such things. The fact that Mr. Chamberlain has re quested the various Governments to send representatives to explain the Bill to the Commons, has given some ground for supposing that there is a possibility of the Imperial Parliament amending the Bill i n some way. The Clause generally picked upon as being most objectionable to Britishers is that one restricting the opera tions of the Privy Council. Now whether this is a good clause or a bad one is not the point ; but the question to raise is : Should the Imperial Parliament be allow ed to alter and pass into law, a measure which the various State Parliaments had no power to alter without the will of the people concerned. If the Australian people, by their representatives decide that they want certain .restrictions put on the operat...
False Military Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900
False Military Economy. I ÏT is not known yet who is re ¡ sponsible for the many disgrace ful circumstances in connection with the housing and feeding of the contingent which left last wtek. It is well known tb at the men were kept sometimes for hours together hard at work dril ling * without a morsel to eat ; that when they did get anything it was often distasteful if not un-¿ wholesome, tough pieces of sinewy meat, and dry mouldy bread was cqâtmon diet. "What ever their faults Australia ns are J not epicures, and no doubt most ! of the men out there would have preferred cora beef any day to jugged hare or " Beef a la jar diniere." It is probable that Mr. See was the last mau to hear of .this discreditable state of affairs, and the blame rests probably on the military authorities. In any case the matter should not be al lowed to drop.

GENTLEMAN'S HALT (From our own correspondent.) The heavy storm last week did some damage but nothing serious, i Mr. Frank Butcher cut his foot very severely with an axe last Mon day, almost severing the part with toes attached from the remainder of the foot. Things are not running too smoothly at Wiseman's Wharf. Clarence Pemberton left on Satur day and Greentree has not gone to work till this week. The Mangrove people were a little disappointed at not receiving a visit from the Minister for Works and Member for the Electorate during their recent tour : especially a deputation with a lady spokes woman who were going to wait on them ! Mr. Ted Greentree had a curious experience the other day, on return ing to where he had left a basin of butter, he found a pig had taken it. and gone to tho house as fast as he could go and ail efforts to drive him, the pig, away proved in vain till part of a loaf of bread was thrown out and having eaten that he went away contentedly.
