A Pathetic Scene. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900
. A Pathetic Scene. A BRIGHT and attractive young lady was standing with some friends outside a Sydney news- paper office, reading the war news. Soon a notice was posted up anr nouncing that Trooper Abrahams had been killed ; the young lady uttered a shriek, and exclaiming, "He is my brother," sank into paroxysms of grief, into her friends' arms, who quietly bore her away. There were very few people about, boiug Sunday, but those few who saw the painful episode were, some of them for the first time perhaps, brought face to face with the dread horrors of war ; we hear sp much about "killedand wounded1' that the phrase somewhat loses its mean- ing, but a touching little scene like this brings the awful truth home to one much more effectual- ly than all the eloquence of preach- ers could do. This is a thing which happens only once in a way in Sydney^ but it is easy to believe how heart rending the ^njany scenes must be outside the War Office in London, when the names of three or four h...
PASSING NOTES. The Agent-Generalship. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900
PASSING NOTES. The Agent-Generalship. THE friends of Mr. Copeland will congratulate that gentlemai upon his appointment to the im portant and responsible post oi Agent-General, and the people generally can rely upon it that all things considered, and going by comparisons, they will be re- presented in London by a fairlj good man. This position has yet-until perhaps now-been filled by a man who had a per- sonal acquaintance with the pro- ducing interests of the colony^ or a practical knowledge of the min- ing ánd land laws, and the diffi- culties under .which "producers -are compelled; to labour. For many years the colony was re .represented in London by Sir ! tßauj^^ baan; whoji&d been a prominent ^^^^^^^n^)rèsent* g^n'ératíóh ^^^Itp1^'^ whose long con tinued absence from the colony rendered him wholly, unfit to fill the position with advantage. When. his resignation was announced it was.oioughtthat the Government would take the op- portunity to send to London a person who w...
The Federal Capital. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900
The Federal Capital. THE Mayor of Albury, having just returned from a trip in Victoria, is more than ^^^üápregsed with 'l^^Bí0k»-'m "¿ls city being? selected as. the Federa} Capital ;: if the Victorians haye the choos ' i og pf the site*hesays, they would choose Albury to a mau. No doubt they would if they could not get it in their own territory, and great fools, in their own in- terests if they did not. But this is very injudicious talk for the Mayor to indulge, he can hardly ! j expect to further the interests t)f his town among New South Welshmen by quoting the opin- ions of Victorians: The people who feel more deeply, outside, the i districts which have a show for the distinction, are Sydneyites, whose jealousy will prompt them to have the capital as far from Newtown as,possible, and whose interests will require that it should be as near to Sydney as possible. The great bulk of the people don't care much where it is if they can- not get it close to their own doors, so what the i...

HERE AND THERE. By MAX KOLDBN.

WEBBS CREEK« (From oar own Correspondent.) Surprise Party. À genuine surprise was accorded the genial Mr. Jonothan Bose and his good wife at their residence, " Glen Aven," on the 21st inst., by a large party of friends from all parts of the river. At about dusk some 14 or 15 residents of Wise- man's Ferry and thereabouts congregated on the jetty, at the foot of the road lead- ing to Leet'8 Vale, there to await the boat which had been arranged to csnvey them to the nearest point of the creek leading to Glen Aven.*' Many more than was anticipated had roiled up, and it waB ionnd necessary to request the uss of a second boat from Mr. Books, who lives on the opposite bank, this gentleman im- mediately came to the assistance of thc merry-makers, and the difficulty having been overcome, everyone determined to settle down and have a right good time. The first of the party to arrive found both Mr. and Mrs. Bose seated on the veran- dah of their house, enjoying a chat pre- vious to retiring t...

Farming in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900
Farming: in South Africa. Mr. A. B. Paterson, special war correspondent of the Sydney Morn- ing Herald in South Africa, in a letter to that journal writes from the front as follows about farming on the veldt " The veldt here is : parched and dry, and the karoo bushes, which are the only vegeta- tion worth speaking of, are dusty and grey like our spinifex country. There is no fuel, but a kind of green broom grown on the kopjes, which burns well even while green. For all farm house work manure is burnt. It is dried into big square blocks and looks like paving stone at a distance. The farmers live by sheep, cattle, and ostriches. The4 country carries a sheep to six acres, an ostrich to 12, and a horse to 20. At least those are the figures given to me by a farmer, but they are not very reliable.
RIVERSTONE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900
RIVERSTONE. (From our own Correspondent.) Mr. Jack Hay set out foi Queensland on Tuesday of las! week. He is going to Gladstone, where he will be employed by Mr. Mette. We omitted to mention last week in connection with the Church of England tea-party that Mesdames Heslop, Wheaton, and Sargeant, and Miss Wheaton had charge of one of the tables. Some means of draining the road near the police-station are sadly wanted. The slightest shower leaves a broad sheet of yellow water, which is only removed by the slow process of evaporation. We still receive occasional show- ers of rain, but much more is wanted for the winter crops. Mr. Fletcher possesses, despite the un- favourable weather, one of the finest crops of lucerne in the Hawkesbury district. The Riverstone people feel the effect of the slackness of work at the local meat-works. In order to give all the hands work each of the mutton butchers are compelled to work alternately two full weeks and remain one week idle. Mr. R. Weller, f...

WISEMAN'S FERttï. (From our own correspondent.) Mr. Harz, while ascending; the hug« mountain facing the Wiseman's Ferrj wharf, tu search for an interruption ii the wires, feil a distance of 15 feet, caus- ing his legs to be very much crushed and bruised, and receiving a severe shock to his system. Six or seven willing hands rushed at once in answer to his cries for belp, and carried him home, when his wounds were dressed by Mrs. Marx, who is exceptionally clever in cases of this kind. He is progressing very favourably. The new wharf is completed, and we believe that Mr. Denny O'Brien, who has been aa active worker on the job, bad a christening ceremony at the finish, but only a fhoBen few were present, and it would be rather uufuir to leveal all to the public this time. We a*c pleased to sea Miss Owens, of Pitt Town (a sister of Mrs. Walmsleys) paying a visit to the Ferry. We noticed a goodly number of Wind- sor and Colo folks passing through on the 8,s Hawkesbury on Monday. We woul...
Departure of Mr. C. E. Broome [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900
Departure of Mr. C. E. Broome Windsor will this week lose a worthy and useful citizen in the person of Mr. C. E. Broome, who has held the position of head- master at the local Superior Pub- lic School, since August, 1893. Last year Mr. Broome gained the Al certificate, and therefore his many friends were not surprised to hear that his worth had been recognised by the Department, and of his promotion to the Rockdale Public School, which means an increase in salary of' something like £6 per month. During Mr. Broome's seven year's residence in Windsor he has assisted in everything which tended towards the welfare of the district, as well as proving a hard , and fast worker of the Wesleyan Church, of which he was a mem- ber. He acted as secretary for the School of Arts for a period of four years, and has been a mem- ber of the committee for the past seven years ; he was also one of the founders of the present Liter- ary and Debating Society, and he has at no time been found want- ing in...

MAINLY ABOOT PEOPLE. The Marquis of Queensbu ry, whose fame ns ii sportsman, particularly with respect to boxing, is known throughout the world, left the following coJicil attached to his will :-" At my death I wish to bc cremated and my ashes pot into the earth, enclosed in nothing-earth to earth, ashes to 'ashes, in any spot moat convenient I hare loved. I'll mention places to my son, Harleyford for choice. I particularly request no Christian mum« menes or tomfooleries be performed over my grave, but that I be buried as a secu- larist and an agnostic. If it will comfort ' anyone, there are plenty of those of my own faith who would come and say a few words of common sense over the spot where my ashes may lie. Places to lay ashes : The summit of Griffie or Queens berry, in Dumfriesshire ; the end of the Terrace overlooking New Loch, Harley- ford, Bucks. No monument or stone necessary or requi ed, or pr. cession, as ashes can be camed in one person's hand. Failing these places any pl...
