A Fish Story. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
A Fish Störy. It seems that the guests of the Hawkesbury Hotel at Wiseman's Ferry, treated themselves - the other Sunday to a picnic. Pulling down the river a few miles the party landed, and had a good unie m. tne ordinary sense of the word. On the way back the boat was anchored, and several members of the party tried their luck at fishing. The lines had been overboard about ten minutes and no one had even a bite. Be coming impatient, Dr.-drew in his line to inspect the bait, when he discovered to his sur prise a dead weight attached. Slowly and curiously he landed the object, which turned out to be a whisky flask with a fish inside. The fish, said the doctor, j probably entered the bottle when quite young, and then had for goteen to come out. [Thus em phasising the beautiful truth of the old proverb-Bring up a child by the bottle, and when he is old he will not depart from it.-ED.] " It had grown too large to pass out of the neck. Only his head protruded. He had grown so fat that h...

IN MEMORIAM. WALDEN.-In sad and loving memory of our darling mother, Rachel Wal- den, who died at the College, Rich- mond, May 23rd, 1899.

Heaven retaineth now our treasure, Earth the lonely casket keeps, And the sunbeams love to linger Where our tainted mother sleeps. Inserted by her loving daughter, Re- becca Timmins, and her loving husband, Joseph Walden.

The high pointed hilb>, the abrupt rug ged points, the massive walls of sand-stone, the deep blue water and the tangled mass of ferns and creepers, and giant gums o'er hangtng the stream, gives one a taste of nature which one does not forget in a day or a month. The Colo, though shallow in places, is cenerallv "... dtep yet clear ; though gentle yet not dall ; Strong without rage; without o'er flowing fall." And I am tempted to quote - the poet further with : "0, could I flow ou .like thee, and . make thy stream My great example, as it is ray theme." And gliding down stream towards the close of the day when the sur face of the water would be as a " sea of glas - , " and not a sound to be heard se ve the dipping of the oars-for even the voices of our light-hearted songsters were hushed, and the merry laugh of the fester was stilled in th...
