mOU OUR EXCHANGES. , ^. ; ?-?-? Baden-powell Stories. When the gallant defender of Iffafeking was assistant military secretary at Malta he -was in great segnest as a leader in all enter mainments, and was indeed an indispensible M.C. at such func tions. At a concert given for some charity a young lady had contributed a skirt dance which called forth much applause and many encoreB. " ASK mat gin to do it over again, will you, Powell?" said the principal military chief present. » The major (as he then was) stepped up to the fair danseuse, and put the request as fascinat ingly as he knew how. It was in vain. *' I really couldn't," she lisped, in a rather affected man ner. "You see I am almost breathless now even : and-and indeed I should be quite blown if I did it again !" "What does she say?" asked the commandant on his ambas sador's return. ,tíShe says, colonel," replied Baden-Powell, rather piqued, and quite loud enough for all around io hear-"the young lady says she'll be Mowed if ...

WISEMAN'S FERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900

WISEMAN'S FERRY. "What has become of your Wise- man's Ferry correspondent ? Has he passed into the "land of forget-   fulness," or did a kind of "rebuff"     some weeks ago cause him to wrap himself into profound silence, re- gardless of what has been going on around him ? In any case, it seems scacely fair that this portion of the   Hawkesbury should not regularly be represented in your weekly, if only by one or two paragraphs, so as to show the outside world that we are alive and k---; no, I don't want to use a vulgar phrase, there- fore I had better say "we are alive   and doing well." At any rate, judging by the activity displayed at and around Wiseman's for some time, it looks as if the "sleepy hollow" has turned into a "very much alive hollow." A telegraph line repairing party, consisting of eight tents, has been camped at the bottom of the hill, between the hotel and the river, for weeks past. The new wharf is b...

"The Free Breakfast Table." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900

«'The Free Breakfast Table." Whatever the recent Freetrade Confer ence was deficient in, it certainly had command of the very best stock of catch penny phrasei. It resolved that the aim of the party it presumed to represent should be as soon as possible to " provide the working man with a free breakfast table." If the working man were half as stupid as the users of this phrase he would not deserve any breakfast at all. To RMTV out tbis ideal absurdity would make the tariff ever so muoh lighter than Britain's and eren less than that of this colony at the present day. Unless, of course, our democrats would propose that the working man should only be allowed to eat certain things for his early meal, say meat, and perhaps bread, while his jrink should be confined to water. Tea, coffee, cocoa, biscuits, and such things are recognised all the world over as free trade items of taxation, yet to carry out cms aosura íaea it would be necessary not to tax them or to forbid the working man to u...
