avidff/le¿¿¿?¿il-z Hospital Nurse Recommends Them. DECLARES THEIR VALUE BEFORE THE MAYOR. NURSE FALKINER, of the "Home of Hope" Hospital, Newtown, Sydney, is a highly efficient and careful administrator of the duties devolving upon her. In a statutory declaration made before the Mayor of Balmain, Henry Mills, Esq., J.P., on September 8,1899, she says : " I, Nurse Maud Falkiner, engaged professionally at the ' Home of Hope," Stanley Street, Newtown, of 15 Anne Street, Balmain, in the Colony of New South Wales, do solemnly and sincerely declare that dur lng my professional experience as a nurse 1 have found Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a valuable medicine of undoubted curative properties. To my certain knowledge Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured a lady residing in Larriman Street, Cook's Hill, Newcastle, of acute anaemia, even when all other remedies had failed and a cure was thought impossible. My sister, Miss Daisy Bithrey, has also been cured of agonising neuralgia solely through their us...

pin TOWN. (From our own correspondent.) A couple of members of the Aus- tralian Mounted Bines have been on a visit to Pitt Town friends during the week. Some of the local streets are in a deplorably rough state. They ar« bad enough now, but what will they be in wet weather. Mr. W.

NO SHAMBLES FOR RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900

NO SHAMBLES FOR RICH- MOND. [The following article is written by Paul Twvt'ord, and although we publish same, we wish it to be understood that we do not necessary identify om selves with the views contained therein.-Ed. H.A.! (Continued.) There is really no accounting for tastes. What sickens ono man fattens another. Thus, one likes his water with a body in it; another don't like even the sign of a hair, or the slightest filament of wool ; one prefers a running stream, an- other a stagnant pool, upon which float a good fat scum-just as most Windsor and Bichmond horses used to prefer drinking the thick, yellow soup from that shallow hole by the road sido on the Common to the crystal stream provided at the horse troughs, either in town or at Clarendon. However, one of the essentials to good health is cleanliness-it is, in fact. a. sine quo »wm, either externally or internally ; \ and T entertain the old-fashioned i idea, that where there is smoke there j is fire, and ergo, where there...

WISEMAN'S FERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900

WISEMAN'S FERRY. Your Wiseman's Ferry corres- pondent, I am glad to notice, is "up and doing," collecting what news he can of a local character and likely to interest your numer- ous readers. I should have crept back into my shell again, quite satisfied that our district is well represented, were it not that some slight omission has occurred con- cerning a departed friend, and this I should like to remedy. Few, there are in our district, who have not become acquainted with the late genial teacher of the Central M'Donald Public School, Mr. W. S. Morgan, who, during a period of eleven years, has taught the "young ideas how to shoot," and was beloved and respected by both young and old. Not only was he very conscientious, efficient and painstaking in the discharge of his scholastic duties, but at St. Jude's he acted at organist and choirmaster, aud was ever to the fore in promoting the welfare of the Church of England, though the Wesleyans, too, had his kind sympathies, and, if his oth...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900

LOCAL AND GENERAL. Several cases of poultry thiev- ing were reported in Windsor on Saturday last. It is reported that a case of bu- bonic plague has been found at Mulgrave. A large batch of road contracts ' close with the Clerk of Petty Ses-   sions at Richmond on Wednes- day next. In the libel action of Kugel- man v. Norton, which took 28 days to hear, the jury were un- able to agree, and were discharged. Several streets in the borough have during the last fortnight been made quite presentable. The gutters have been cleaned and the footpaths chipped. Mr. George South has again re- sumed duty at the local post office, after having spent a well-earned and enjoyable month's holiday on the river. Our readers should avail them selves of the Opportunity which will be afforded them on the 26th and 27th inst., to visit Newport. The s.s. Hawkesbury has been chartered for the occasion. It may be well said that life is monotonous. In fifty years we undress for bed no fewer than 1...

OBITUARY. Miss Amanda Black, daughter of Mr. F. Black, of Glenorie, died on Wednes- day evening, after an illness extending about twelve months. Miss Black had been a probationer at the Parramatta District Hospital, and gave promise of being a splendid nurse, but she developed lung trouble and was forced to relinquish the profession. Much sympathy is ex- pressed for her relatives. The funeral, which took place on Friday last was largely attended—a number of the mem- bers of the nursing staff of the Parra- matta District Hospital being included among the mourners at Glenorie. A   beautiful wreath was laid upon the gra- ve by the hospital nurses, and one had been forwarded, too, by the hospital com- mittee. The deceased was a niece to Mr.   J. R. James, of Lower Portland, and   recently spent a few day on the river.

WISEMAFS FERRY (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

WISEMAFS FERRY (From our own correspondent.) Mr. T. G. Chaseling has been appointed our river agent and he #ill be only too glad to enrol subscribers-if any more exist-and conduct other business on our behalf. Notwithstanding the sandbanks, etc.r that unfortunately abound m the river bel near Windsor, Mr. T. C. Chaseling has decided to attempt to pilot hts 1 launch to Windsor wharf at an «arly date. The new Government wharf is now almost completed, and looks every inch a job that could be classed "'Al at Lloyds." This fact is easily accounted for when we mention that the work has ' been carried out under the sup3rvi ion ot Mr. Poole, engineer to the Ha.bjrs and Rivers Department. Mr. P. Kelly has been suffering for a Considerable time with a disease of the eye, and has for a fortnight past received treatment from Dr- Maher, the noted Sydney oculist. Notwithstanding this treatment-and it is a coBtly one-there has been no noticeable improvement, and Mr, Kelly is now considering the ad...

LOWER PORTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

LOWER PORTLAND. It rained steadily on Thursday, and it is likely that everything will considerably improve therefrom. The ADVOCATE is considered the lead- ing paper in this district, and it is with difficulty a home can be found in which it is not read. Hr. R- Lowe has been appointed our agent for Lower Portland, and he will be pleased to accept subscriptions, advertise- ments', and new subscribers on our behalf. Miss Ada James, second daughter of Mr, and Mis. James will be married on Wc tuesday next to Mr- Jim Turnbull, of Maitland. The ceremony will take place at St. John's Church, which adjoins the prospective bride's residence. We wish both the young people no small amount of happiness. Wc would advise our readers to desist ! from shooting quail for at least another month.

Cricket Match. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

Cricket Match. . An interesting cricket match was play- ed on Saturday last on the local wicket, when eleven of the St. Albans team under- took the by no means easy task, of defeat- ing eighteen members ' of Jpe Upper McDonald Club. A large number of spectators were present, including amongst whom, we noticed ladies and gentlemen from all parts of the district. The St. Albans captain having won the to?sdeci ded that hie team should be the first to don the pads and "face the music." Some really good cricket was played by Smith and Chapman for St. Albans, the former by first-class cricket compiled a sore of 26 runs, without giving a single chance. This, with IS fieldsmen, is most creditable. Chapman after an innings in which he made seventeen runs, gave a chance to M. Thompson, which he accep- ted. At the close of the innings 85 runs were booked to tbe credit of the St. Albans eleven. At 4.30 the Upper McDonald skipper sent H. Smee and G. Thompson to the wickets. Sm»e proved a hard nu...

Transport Waggons. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 March 1900

Transport Waggons. THE latest demand on the patrio- . tic pocket is in the shape of a re- > quest for subscriptions towards the building within the Colony, [ and forwarding to South Africa, a number of transport waggons for use by the British Army. Isn't this like pushing the , patriotic charitable feeling too far ; we pay money to provide for the depend- ents of those who fall in battle, and we pay to send a characteris- tic corps of bushmen, for we be- lieve that they are the boys for the Boers, but when it comes to shout ins the British Empire some waggons, the question arises where is it going to stop ? Next we witt be asked to shout them guns and shells. If the question is to ad- vertise our own make of waggons, then as a purely business matter it might be commendalle enough to send along some samples ; in. such a case, it might be more fit- ting that the Government of the Colony should provide the funds, purely as a matter of business advertising, but there does not seem to...
