TENNYSON. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
TENNYSON. The effects of the recent drought are com pletely effaced, and a few weeks hence we may hope to be enjoying bur customary succulent vegetable, And cool, crisp salad freshly culled at dewv morn. The recent order of things is completely reversed, for now there is too much grass, and not enough cattle (by the way we could nevertheless dis pense with the herds of stray cittle we are fattening), whereas during the drought people found to their sorrow there were top many cattle and not sufficient pasturage. Visitors to this sylvan glade are agree ably surprised at the progress made in the district during the past few years. One lowland farmer remarked last week that the crops could compare favorably with the lowlands, while the potatoes, he believed would excel any he had seen this season. Owners generally are to be commended for the clean, healthy state of their orchards. Fruit is setting well, and, altogether we presage a bright future for the seoluded part of the Kurrajong.

The Battle of Gettysburg. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
The Battle of Gettysburg. After a lapse of seven years, the manage ment of the Cyclorama decided to replace ** Jerusalem " by re-erecting the masterpi?ce of Cy clorara ic Art, the " Bartle of Gettys burg/' which caused so much excitement here some years ago. For the last four years America and Europe have been searched for a scene fit to replace Jerusalem and follow " Gettysburg," bat nothing could be found that would not suffer too much by com patison. A South African scene could not be had, a battle scene was wanted, and a constant wish being expressed by Cyclorama visions to see Gettysburg again, it was determined-as nothing equal to it in any part of tue world could be found-to re erect Gettysburg. This has been done, and visitors tu the city will, after recent events, find a special interest in seeing what war really mean*. Ihe management have added a mort faeitiating novelty to the flail of Illusions, which, with a quantity of new CinomnroTraph films, make up a splendid exhibi...

WISEMAN'S FERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
WISEMAN'S FERRY. Mr. Bretnall, Inspector of public school buildings, paid the Ferry a visit this week to inspect some work that has just been completed at the local school. Mr. Barlow, Government surveyor, passed through here on Friday last with his staff on his way up the McDonald river, where he has some work in hand. À heavy slip of wall surrounding the police station occurred on Thursday last, tons of stone and earth going half-way acrosB the road. This was predicted ^by the knowing ones when it .was built. Nothing but a substan tial stone wall will ever answer the purpose required. Constable Loonies has been hard at work trying to patch things up a bit. We had some heavy rain during thé past week. , At times it looked as though a flood was inevitable, and the farmers wore long faces. A public pound has been established at Wiseman's Ferry. A keeper will be appointed in the near future, for which position there are already a large number of applicants. Thanks to our member, Mr. B...
NOTES FOR NOVEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
! NOTES FOR NOVEMBER. The following Hawkesbury district farm notes, by »the College Principal, are taken from the " Agricultural Gazette" : The busy month of October is now over, and those farmers who were not disheartened wit i drought conditions have reason to congratulate themselves on getting in early summer crop?. Bain has fallen on four occasions since fceptember, supplying a total moisture of 4 inches. Shortage for winter fee( is yet before us, and demands tha strenuous efforts be made throughout this month to meet this failure, apar from the usual conditions which mak&lt; November the busiest period in th&lt; year.- Late planting and sowing is it full operation ; moreover, the neces sity for active attention tÔ the grow ingcrops is constantly present. Hay Crops.--It is not usually con: sidered good farm practice to convert the first growth of the lucerne crop in the season into hay, but scarcity bf stock and other conditions this season, such as market values...
LEETS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
LEETS VALE. We are sorry to have to report that Mr. T. Kemp's gang of men have had to knock off work on our much needed road, as the money is all worked out. We were very much disappointed when the news came, but we still live in hope that the Treasury won't run dry uniil our road is completed ! We have had beautiful rain. The grass is growing, and the fruit trees are well loaded with fruit. Melons, pumpkins, and tomatoes are showing well for a good crop. The Bon Chretien pear crop is a mo8t promising one ; also the Jargar nell. Unfortunately, the codlin mcth pest is again amongst us. Several small beds of Early Bose potatoes here are looking very well.
CATTAI. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
CATTAI. A visitor to this locality cannot fail to be struck with the beauty of the scenery. As one. journeys towards Dural an enchanting view meets the eye. One day to come the heights of Glenorie will be reckoned favorite among the sanatoria of New South Wales, and will be coveted by the foot instead of by the acre measure ment. 4 Mr. Donald Robertson's irrigation scheme is in forward evidence. The excitement of the moment appears to be in the circumstance of awaiting , the arrival of the engine, tanks, and piping, ordered last week. The fer tiliser Mr. Eobertsou proposes to use will be either lime or gipsern. Mr. Thomas Orono's orchard is a picture, H There is every prospect of a most prolific crop of oranges. We hope his anticipations will be fully realised, as he deserves it. He has also a fine show of early nectarines.
FREEMAN'S REACH. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
FREEMAN'S REACH. The late abundant rains have had a J splendid effect on the district. Herbage and grass are springing up in all directions. Owing tc the favorable curn the season has taken, many farmers regret not having planted-potatoes. The black beetle has made its ap pearance here. Enormous quantities of mushrooms are growing on all the low lying parts. Good money could be made by sending them to Sydney, where they command big prices. Messrs. Samuel and Lawson Smith will be sending apricots to market next week. Mr. Brinsley Hall has had several acres of orange trees taken out, on account of the borers having got into them. The heaviest crop of young citrus fruit on record has just shed its bloom. Some of our local amateur fisher men lost their nets during the recent freshes in the river. Several farmers have nice patches of a small variety of millet, which bids fair to oe largely grown in this district. It is said that three crops a year can be produced off the eame land.
WEBB'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
WEBB'S CREEK. Splendid rains have fallen. They caused freshes in the McDonald and Webb's Creek. It ÍB likely that the farmers will lose the corn on the low lands, as it is too young to stand the water. We are all pleased to know that Mr. Barney Smith is making great progress towards recovery, after his severe illness. Ere long we hope to ase him about again. lt is quite a treat to see the fields and grass paddocks so verdant and green. There will soon be abundance of feed for the stock. Trade is very slack with the boats and steamers, but things will hum in a few weeks' time, when the fruit is ripe. The wharves are packed with empty césos, iu readiness. The Briggs peaches are poorly cropped, but there are Chinas iu abundance.
KURRAJONG. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
KURRAJONG. ! The grase paddocks aré now a per fect picture. Their uniform greenness is very pleasing to the owners of stock, considering the severe time they have passed through. Friday laßt being Mrs. B. Hen ' nessy's birthday, several of her friends met by common consent, and, in honor of the event, invaded her house in the manner of a surprise party ; and, ! having obtained possession, they very speedily upset the arrangement of the furniture, and in no very solemn or half-hearted way prepared to pass tbe time, not in that rest and quietness which some people pray for, but in dancing and music and the general pleasure which is always associated with a large gathering of kindred spirits. There were, in all, about forty people present ; and, in spite of the adverse weather conditions, every thing which could add to the pleasure of the evening was thought of, with the result that all concerned passed a very happy time. Mr. W. B. McMahon, of Comleroy road, has had a very hard run of ...
LOWER PORTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 7 November 1902
LOWER PORTLAND. A concert and social is to be held in the Church of England on the 10th, when» an enjoyable evening is ex pected. Miss Pearl Taylor, of Newcastle, is on a visit to this district, and is stay ing with our popular teacher, Mr. James. She seems, to be a special favorite among our local boys. Last week nearly three inches of rain fell here. One very heavy storm did considerable damage, washing the ground and filling up low places which have been worked during the dry season. Amongst the heaviest losers was Mr. L Law. Several acres of his swamp had been worked dp and planted with early pumpkins, which looked splendid -^-before the storm, but they were completely sub merged. The water could not get away, on account of the drain not being in order. Mr. E. H. Mitchell had the mis fortune to lose one of his best cows last week. It is rumoured that Mr. Law is about to leave this district for the : metropolis. This will be a serious loss to the local cricket club, as he is one ...
