FROM OUR EXCHANGES. , '-» ' ? A Story of Gatacre. An Indian correspondent of '* M.A.P." tells a little story in reference to the restless activity of General Gatacre. Hie was in command of a district ia India and there had been a field day. This, with Gatacre at ihe head of affairs, means a good deal jfore than it does with tbe ordinary General. There was long marching, forced inarching and mimic . hill warfare. in loll field order, and Tommy sweated for hours. How many miles had been covered (says the corres pondent) I will not ¿ttetnpt to say. Some allege 20. others ISO, but anyhow, the i long day was at an end, and dishevelled j and footsore the troops marched back ' into camp, 'Twas then that I heard this delightful little dialogue: "Tired Bill?" said a private to a comrade. " No !" un blushingly came the reply. " Well Bill, seeing how it's all over, I thinks I shall drop into the canteen and have a quart of ale ! What are you going to do, Bil) ?" There was a pause. ?'

GENTLEMANS HALT. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

GENTLEMANS HALT (From our own correspondent.) Á great number of people have left off dealing with the H.S.N. Company since the change of boat men in the Creek. The dredge has been taken away from Mangrove for repairs since Christmas and it is supposed she will not return. The work already done by her is a great boon to the Mangrove people. Things were a bit mixed at the Central Mangrove Progress Asso ciation meeting the other night, when, one individual after being beaten in argument " talked fight " surely they must sorely miss the few old gentlemen, who until lately took an active part in their meet ings. The weather here has been all that could be desired for the last week. The orchards are all regain ing their original color. Having visited Mr. Shakeshaft's orchard last week we unhesitatingly say, that we believe it will be one of the best orchards in this part of the district in the course of another couple of years. Mr. Shakeshaft has now lOOO trees of the best sorts, and inte...

PASSING NOTES. The Government Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

PASSING NOTES.   The Government Policy.   IN a recent series of speeches, speaking on behalf of the Govern- ment, Mr. O'Sullivan referred to the policy of the future and the various matters which Parliament would be invited to deal with. After sounding the usual loud timbrel about the many good measures this Government had passed, Mr. O'Sullivan informed his audiences that not only were they going to bring in a Bill to   make arbitration in trade disputes compulsory, but they were going to make a start at a "plan for the mitigation of the effects of   droughts by means of a scheme   of water conservation by carrying out a scheme of artesian boring ; and by the construction of a sys- tem of light railways to save starving stock in arid regions. These words, coming from Mr. O'Sullivan, do not, of course, carry as much weight as they would had they been uttered by the most cautious, the most prac- tical, or the most respo...

An Extensive Bee-Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

An Extensive Bee-Farm. Mr. Harrison Ward's bee-farm on the Comleroy Road, which was briefly referred to in our last week's issue is the most extensive to be found in the Hawkesbury district, and one that is worked on the most modern lines, and with the most modern appliances. The apiary is to the passer-by excluded from view and unless a person was told of its existence he would never dream of looking in such an out of the way place for a bee-farm of its size. About five years ago Mr. Ward selected this piece of land consisting   of 40 acres, with the intention of settling down with his family and laying out an orchard. That he has carried out his intentions is now to be seen ; a nice orchard of citrus fruit has been laid out, which has the appearance of being well looked after, with the result that the yield premises to be a prolific one. A comfortable and commodious house has been erected, wherein Mr. Ward and his family reside and altogether a place where five years ...

Excelsior Concert at Kurrajong Heights. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

Excelsior Concert at Kurrajong Heights. On Saturday evening, 20th inst., eventuated the annual concert in con- nection with the Presbyterian Church, Kurrajong Heights. The event was in every respect quite worthy of the above title. The various items were equisitely chosen and well worthy of the occasion, the Different songs selected go to prove how thoroughly saturated with patriot- ism were the different performers ; and moreover, the ovation which echoed, and rolled right through the vast audience at the rendering of that soul-stirring song. " The Absent Minded Beggar," appeared to signal the grand motto ''for the Queen and Empire." The organising of this   brilliant affair was entrusted to an execu-   tive, of which Miss Powell was the prin- cipal. The efforts of the executive were   ably seconded, as agreeably manifested in the over-crowded appearance of the   Church, for to meet the exigences of the occasion, extra seats had t...

OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

OBITUARY. Death, the Grim Beaper, has again been amongst us, and bas this time cut off one of Windsor's best known and respected residents in the person of Mr. Samuel E. Dyer. After three weeks illness with typhoid fever, the deceased passed away at his late residence, George-street, Windsor, his death coming as a shock to those who were near and dear. Everything that was possible to do by Dr. Gibson, Nurse Ford, of Sydney, and the members of his family was done, but all the tender care and attention proved of no avail. The late Mr. Dyer was born at Oxford,   England, and came to the colony when quite an infant. The family came to Windsor on arrival in the colony, and the deceased had been a resident of the district until the time of his death. For many years he carried on business in the boot trade in the building now occupied by Mr. Melville in George- street, and afterwards built the large shop, adjoining Mr. Hull's premises, into which he moved, and opened up a more...

THE TRANSVAAL WAR. HEROISM OF TROOPER FIASCHI. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

============   THE TRANSVAAL WAR.   HEROISM OF TROOPER FIASCHI.   We take the following from a recent   issue of the " Sydney Morning Herald," being part of tbe account written by " Banjo Paterson " "which, we are sure,   will prove of great interest in the Hawkesbury district. He says :—... "     Meanwhile Troopers Fiaschi and Mac- pherson, of the New South Wales Lan- cers, were going to join their patrol, and when they heard the firing and saw the retreat they rode over to see what was happening. They joined the three Innis- killing Dragoons, and they all went back together to pick up the fallen man, while the bullets still rattled round them. They dismounted and lifted the dying man on to his horse, but he could not stand the shaking, and they lifted him down and actually carried him about a quarter of mile in their arms while under fire the whole time. It was a most extraordinary thing how...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

LOCAL AND GENERAL. A large number of picnic par- ties were dotted about South Creek on Anniversary Day. The depest regret is expressed in the district for the members of the Dyer family in their sad bereavement. Mr. G. Williams and his mother have gone to North Richmond to reside, where the former has opened a bootmaking business.   We hear that a very popular yoong couple intend forming a contract shortly, after which event they will agree henceforth to run in double harness. Constable Hughes, of Wilber- force, was engaged last week col- lecting the anual returns through part of the district for the year 1899. A splendid photo of Nurse Johnston, sister of Mr. J. B. Johnston, J.P., who has gone to the war, appeared in last Satur- day's Sydney Mail. The annual general meeting of members of the Hawkesbury Benevolent Society takes place at the Institntion on Monday, the 12th inst., at 2 p.m. The scorching weather of the past fortnight has been almost unbearable, and the ve...

YARRAMUNDI. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

YARRAMUNDI.   Mr. R. C. Campbell, the new teacher at the local Public School has arrived, and commenced duties in his new quarters. Prior to coming here Mr. Campbell presided over the Nerrigundah Public School, which is situated about 30 miles, beyond Moruya, on the South Coast, for something like ten years, which is a recom- mendation in itself for Mr. Camp- bell's popularity. He has been over 20 years in the service, and is therefore a well tried servant. He comes amongst us with excellent credentials as a teacher, and we feel sure that his advent to the district will be quite an acquisi- tion. Apart from his ability as a teacher, Mr. Campbell is a tal- ented writer, and from time to time many of his stories and verses have appeared in the press of the colony. He is a brother to Mr. A. A. M. Campbell, who at the present time is considered one of the best writers in the colony, and whose verses are no doubt well known to many of our readers. Great accounts are &amp...

Lower Portland School Picnic. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

Lower Portland School Picnic. Friday last, Anniversary Day, was quite a gala day at Lower Portland, the occasion being the annual picnic ia connection with the Public School, which was held at that pretty spot on the above date. Fully 150 people were pre sent, which, considering the other counter attractions being held in the district, must have proved grati fying to the popular schoolmaster, Mr. J. E. James Parents accom panied by their children started to put in an appearance at about 10 a.m., and at 11.30 a start was made on the many dainty and substantial delicacies provided. Nothing ap {>eared to have been left undone, and oud and many were the praises be stowed on those who assisted in providing the many good things, nicely set out in the large school room, before the "hungry" multi tude-we say hungry advisedly, as judging by the way the tables were cleared, more than one had worked up a splendid appetite we did so at any rate.

KURRAJONG. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 February 1900

(From our own Correspondent.) Mr. Theo Sutton has gone to Botany to reside, at which place he has obtained employment. A raid was made one day last week on Flying Fox Gully by a number of orchardists, and it can be safely asserted that the number of " kills " ran into thousands. Mr. Joseph McMahon's contract of laying 1400 yards of metal on the Comleroy Road was completed this week, and we feel sure will give satisfaction when the time for inspection comes round. Over 30 men were engaged cracking the stone since the contract started.   Mr. John Scott, of the Comleroy, is about one of the oldest hands about the district. The old gentle- man is now in the sere and yellow leaf, being nearly 80 years of age. He was born at Richmond Bottoms, and has several sons residing at Agnes Banks. Mr. Lenton, of Blaxland's Ridge, who has spent many years in South Africa, tells some very interesting tales of that country, the geography of which he is well acquainted. Mr. Lenton was pres...
