LOWER PORTLAND. I ? . . ? I The farmers are very busy getting I things ship shape again after the storm on Sunday week. Mrs. J. Lamb, mother of Mrs. W, Jones, of Colo, died at North Sydney last week. We hear that Mr. Harry Kemp is to be married next week, the fair one hailing from Wilberforce. Congratu lations ! A terrific thunderstorm, accompanied by a most copious downfall of rain, passed over this district on Sunday week last. The rain came down in sheets and torrents, and for a time it seemed that the gates of heaven must have opened. AH the lowlying land was submerged in a very few minutes, [ in many instances the great force of j the water washing out the crops by the roots. The sky was rent and torn by vivid lightning, followed by heavy peals of thunder. Altogether it was j the severest storm experienced in ! these parts for many a day. j Mr. S. Everingham took a trip out Maitland way last week. Maitland is ¡ situated in " Toby " Barton's elector ate, and as the genial Mr. Ev...

Ostrich Breeding. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 5 December 1902
Ostrich Breeding. It was recently announced (says the " S. M. Herald ") that the breed ing of ostriches had been undertaken in connection with Hawkesbury Agri cultural College, and that considerable interest was being manifested in the experiment of hatching by means of incubators. The method of breeding these birds by means of incubation hap, however, long since passed the experimental stage in New South Wales, for though the fact may not be generally known, ostrich farming on a small scale has been successfully carried on at Milton for four years, and fine healthy incubated birds, fully j 7 feet high, may there be seen sur rounded ty a number of interesting little chicks, which also were brought to life in the incubator. As far back as 1869 this method of breeding was successfully employed in Cape Colony, and it at once gave remarkable stimulus to the industry, as is shown by the fact that while in the year named there were barely 100 birds in captivity, six years later tbe number...

' Drought Belief. Anent the Premier's speech hei the other day, and the strong ster. x since, taken by Parliament for th relief of the general distress througl out the State, it is interesting t recall our local member's outspoke remarks, some fire months ago.

New South Wales Lancers. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 5 December 1902
New South Wales Lancers. The Commonwealth War Office has been busying itself with the re-naming, if not with the re-organising of the Commonwealth forces. We are not prepared to dispute the necessity that may have existed for such re-or ganising of the land defence force, but we doubt the existence of any neces sity for robbing New South Wales of her Lancers. It may be that the lance, as a weapon of offence, is an tiquated, and not up-to-date, though there is a tradition that the Boers detested the sight of the bayonet. The Lancers are a picturesque arm of the service, and we hold an opinion that there is a sentimental glamour about a picturesge uniform as well as there is added to that quality in the uniform the enhancement derived from the sheen of the long spear-head with which the Lancer is armed. These go a long way towards winning re cruits, and towards making such recruits take a pride in the corps the j belong to, which does much to th« making of a battle reputation, and the...
