MARKETS. Sydney, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900

MARKETS. Syâuey, Thursday. Operations in general produce along Sussex-street yesterday «rere on a re- stricted Scale. The dulness is largely attributable to the bubonic plague scare, and the approach of the end of the month. At the Bedfern auction sale a good supply of produce, principally chaff, was submitted to a large attendance of buyers, who operated rather cautiously in most lines. The inquiry for chaff was steady at reduced prices. Potatoes and onions moved steadily on the wharves at quotations, In dairy produce trade was quiet. At the Bedfern railway terminus mar- kets yesterday a good supply of produce was submitted at auction. There was a large attendance of buyers, who bought rather cautiously. The inquiry for chaff was less active, and prices, if anything, ruled a trifle weaker. Prime, made 3s 3d to Ss 7d, medium 2s lOd to 3s ld, and in- ferior and dusty samples 2s 6d to 2s 9d per cwt.

The Plague. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900

The Plague. No doubt the plague is a serious business, but it is a thing which clean healthy people in clean healthy surroundings need have little fear of. But of course many .parts of Sydney are far from be- ing either clean or healthy ; andi . this may not be, very seldom is, in fact the fault of individual families who lire in the neighbor hood, it is more the fault of the civic fathers who mismanage the city's streets and sewerage se grossly, that some portions are just as much breeding ground for germs as Crown Lands in the in- terior are breeding ground for vermin. The plague is like typhoid, one mau inhales the germ but be he strong and healthy ' it makes no headway, another maa '?weak and ill is taken by it, and in a day or two he is no more Where the plague can lire there i& dirt, and the presence of dirt in- dicates, faults in municipal man- agement-and there is any amount of that, even in our own historical town.

The Plague. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900

The Plague. TfîE plague is steadily pushing ahead and was lately reported to hare secured a foot-hold ia so healthy a suburb as Randwick. It is fasy enough to account for its presence there or anywhere else, since the inhabitants prob- ably put in most of the day in some infected spot, thus carrying the disease home with them. This outbreak has served to open the eyes of the most indifferent ob- server to the happy-go-lucky, care- less manner in which the City Council and suburban municipal- ités as well, dispose of their garb- age. Wherever there might hap- pen to be a bit of vacant land in a suburb, is considered by the municipal authorities a good enough plape to dump down rubbish ; anyone who knows the run of any Sydney suburb, could take a bewildered stranger to spot after spot, all within a small radius, where all kinds of rubbish ; is thoughtlessly deposited. The need for a thoroughly up-to-date and efficient garbage destructor is )^ry ^hvi0v& to «very ©ne.^fc â«ieë&g...

HORSEBRAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900

HORSEBRAKE. Horse breaking as practised by the men of Yezo, is graphically de- scribed by Miss Isabella Bird, but it will not commend itself to British or Australian readers. The lady says:-"AJapanese brought into the village street a handsome spirited young horse, equipped with a Japanese demipique saddle, and a most cruel gag bit. The man wore very cruel spurs, and was armed with a bit of stout board, 2ft. long by 6in. broad. The horse had not been mounted before, and was frightened, but not tho least bit vicious. He was spurred into a gallop, and ridden at full speed up and down the street, turned by main force, thrown on his haunches, goaded with the spurs, and cowed by being merci- lessly thrashed over the ears and eyes with the piece of board till he was blind with blood. Whenever he tried to stop from exhaustion, he was spurred, jerked, and flogged, till at last, covered with sweat, foam, and blood, and with blood running from his mouth and splash- ing the road, he reeled, st...

Hatte's Parramatta Establish- ment. Mr. C. Qr. Hatte, the well-known draper and clothier, has now closed up his es- tablishment at Windsor. But in doing so has opened up a still larger place in a more central part of the important dis- trict ; that is on the site of the old court house at Parramatta. These premises are very commodious and fitted up with every trade of convenience. Hatte has already earned a favorable name in town ; and his present extension will enable him to meet the increasing demands made upon him. In making this change, Hatte desires to thank his old friends for their past support, and trusts to receive a con- tinuance of their patronage in his Par- j ramatta establishment. If some of them j have to travel a little further, their jour- ney will be repaid ten-fold in the great bargains that will be offered to them. Wherever Hatte has gone he has made a host of friends, and his advent has been a boon to the district. It will be the same at Parramatta, for he. is d...

The result proved that I was right, and sensible people here take it that way.

FROM OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900

FROM OUR EXCHANGES. . " Candour," in the Western Post of 22nd met., says : A writer io the Windsor Gazette has had his bile unhealthily excited over some recent pars, in " Gossip," and is evidently in a very bad way indeed. Ile should certainly haye consulted a doctor, taken cooling medicine, lowered his diet, done something or another before rush- ing into print. It is really pitiful to see man or boy make such a public laughing-stock of himself. "Non Dormio," as he signs his babyish screed, talks glibly enough of Alma Mater, while every sen- tence of his unique specimen of literary hogwash, convincingly proves that an evening school would be far more in his line than a uni- versity. Such expressions as " flip flop," " own ownest paper (spoiler") (sic), &c.. &c, do not savour of either of the world-famed seats of learning. No, indeed. What " N.D." wants is a cheap elemen- tary school, where he might pick up a little manners, even though he fas is most likely) debarr...
