WILBERFORCE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

WILBERFORCE. (From our own Correspondent.) The Misses Josephs of Riverstone have been spending a few days here with their sister (Ute. W. Cobcroft). Splendid rain fell on Sunday last 'and did a great amount of good, although the farmers could well do with more. The local cricket club seemed quite pleased with themselves on Saturday last, when they scored a win against the College. Some sneaking thieves have been ?niling Mr. A. Farlow's corn for him. hey took about three rows which were jost fit for pulling. Miss Lillie Greentree, who was married on Wednesday last, is daughter of Mr. Henry Greentree, not Mr. B. Greentree as stated last week. Captain Twine gave a lecture in the Wesleyan Church on Wednesday night last. There was not a very large audience. The lecture was very good. It is a, pity that the Department did not put two brick rooms into the school house instead of weatherboard, which to my way of thinking is no improvement to the place. Mr. B. Brown, -who has been at Mr. 8, ...

SOBRIETY is a state unfortunately too well known to need description ; suffice it to say, that the sober moments that immeJiately succeed to dinner are the most miserable in existence.
