Hone Heke, M. P. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
Hone H eke, M. P. THE Maori Parliament, -which was to assemble on Thursday, was to consider the question of sending Hone Heke, one of their num- ber, to England to lay their griev- ances before the Imperial author- ities. We are not aware that the Maori's have any great grievances which require ventilation, the! purpose of this paragraph is to j draw attention to a few interest- ing facts which surround the name of Hone Heke. He is a pure blood Maori, a member of the House of Representatives, the eon of a King in former times, a man of great intellect, of easy and graceful language, with a perfect command of the English tongue, as well as his own, a good ac- quaintance of the English litera- ture, and an attractive presence. He stands as a proof of the very superior qualities which the Maori race possess, which en- titles them to be considered one of the most Uiglily talenjted of coloured racës. This fact ÎB*^ the inoré remarkable when it is considered that their origin must necessa...
Sanitary Buildings. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
Sanitary Buildings. WHILE the country people are indulging in ali sorte of fearful forebodings about the plague, their city cousins are almost welcoming a visitation which might awaken the local govern- ing bodies to a sensf of the great possibilities their field of opera- tions give them to ytork for. Mr. Lynè began by talking about re- suming all .the, Government wharves along t)£ë infected area, ând^ra^nç ;onjr^3ter by suggesting that the centre portion. of the city should be resumed by the Government and converted into a creditable business locality. This, of course, is a large order, but is perfectly practicable, and it was something of this which was held in view by those who were advocating the greater Sydney movement some months ago. In Loudon, Glasgow, Bir- mingham, and other large cities this has been done with emin- ently successful results, not only has the Avork proved a great im- provement to those cities, from a spectacular as well as as a sani- tary point of view, bu...
Broom Millet. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
Broom Millet. The crops appear to have done fairly well. There is every chance of a good yield of heads, and, as prices are very high just, now, this crop will, in many instances, be a very profitable one. In order to obtain a first-class sample, it is necessary to cut the heads before the seed is properly matured, it will then have a green tinge, which is very desir- able. The Feed from sueü heads is hardly suitable for seed purposes, aud I would advise leaving sufficient heads to lipen their reed for ute the following season. The miniature seed can be used for feed- ing to pigs, poultry, &c.
FROM OUR EXCHANGES. The Bubonic Plague. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
FROM OUR EXCHANGES. The Bubonic Plague. Mr. JoBeph Benjamin, medical prac- titioner, Ahmedabad, India, sent a paper to the " British Medical Journal" for publication, containing a serieB of hints to the native public as to precau- tions to be taken during a plague epi- demic. A summary is given below. Al- though these suggestions were particu- larly framed to refer to the natives of India, on which account some are inap- propriate as regards a »white race, they as a whole contain several hints which should prove valuable at present. 1. Baths in warm water daily, and after rub with olive or other oil. 2. Keep clothes and bedding clean. 3. Whitewash house aud remove rub- bish to a distance. 4. Prevent overcrowding. 5. Ventilate apartments freely. 6. Keep gutters, cesBpcols, etc., clean, using a disinfectant. 7. Boil drinking water. 8. Avoid chills and keep indoors after dark. 9. Boil milk, and eat fresh vegetables and sound grain ; do not fast, 10. Burn benzoin or other disinfectant f...

HERE^NDTHERE. BY MAX SLOUDBX. One of tbe most enjoyable r« excursions that have taken pie far some time, «as that which w run hy the fast and commodio steam ship Hawkesbury on ti 26th ultimo. Mr. Peter Ken had the steamer chartered for ti occasion, and that gentleman d serves no small amount of prai for the unstinted energies which 1 displaced in endeavouring to gi' the Hawkesburyites a delighf outing. As soon as Mr. Ken made known his intention of rn: sing the excursion a great mai people thought the steamer woui be crowded, ave, they thougl when one so highly esteemed i Peter Kemp (the world's tx-cbat pion sculler) chartered a boat lil the Hawkesbury ihat people fro; all parts of the district would floe ou b'.-.ii d.

THE APIARY. (From the " Agricultural Gazette.") [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
THE,A£AARY. BY ALBERT GALE. ] (From the " Agricultural florette.") Tue beehive and ito inhabitants are like the conjurer s inexhaustible bottle, only there is no trickery about it ; never- theless, they contain a never-ending theme. Dr. Johnson said : " I have often amused myself with thinking bow dif- ferent a place London is to different people," and I have said, if not in so many words, the same in regard to the beehive and its inhabitants. The scien- tist, from his standpoint, sees only the wonders of the sociality of insects and their wonderful architecture. Both of theBe, to the uninitiated, are mysterious adaptations to the domestic economy in bee-life. Solomon of old held up the ant as an example of industry-" Consider the ant." The moralist of to-day points the improvident and lazy to (he thrift of the hive-" Consider the bee." Pater- familias takes his text from the same source from which to reprove and improve, his share of the coming generation. The commercial man look! ...

Sorghum. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
Sorghum. Many of the crops will now be ready for cutting for green feed and ensilage. Some farmers adopt the plan of mixing the maize and sorgnnm when rilling the silo, and this appears ts be a satisfactory plan, lt couli, however, be much im- proved upon by adding a small quantity of lucerne, cow-pea, or other crop of the same family.
ORCHARD & FARM. Maize Harvesting. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
ORCHARD& FARM. Bx GEORGE 7ALDER. (From the «' Agricultural Gazette.") Maize Harvesting. Haryesting operations will shortly be in full swing. The dry weather experi- enced daring December and January greatly affected most of tte crops, but in many instances they have stood the ordeal well, and good yields will be ob tained. I would again oall the attention of our farmers to the antiquated system of maize harvesting. The amount of I hand-labour required under the present system is far too much to allow of paying j a fair wage-that is, if the grain is to be sold at average market rates. First of all, the cobs are pulled and placed in bags, then carted to the barn and laid out to dry : next they are husked, and finally put through the sheller and baged ready ¡ for market. In mott instances this work, with the exception of the carting, is all dont by hand. In the annual report of the Department of Agriculture, Washing- ton, U.S.A., the following remarks ap- pear on the production...

COLO (From our own Correspondent.) Mr. W. Woodbury has sent few consignments of apples awa lately, which ought to top tl market. Most of the local farmers ha^ commenced gathering their maiz and the yield in most parts &lt; this locality is very satisfactory. We thought a wedding was o the tapis some time ago, but w are now told that it has bee "called off." Never mind, Jin "There'll come a time som day." The Colo melon-beds are a] about done. Some oft the grow ers out on the Hawkesbury Rive expect to market a good man; dozen yet, for which they antici pate high prices. Rumour has it that Mr. Jame Hulbert intends taking his de parture for South Africa (not ii search of Boers, but diamonds) ii the near future. We can ill affor&lt; to lose Jim, for he is Colo's mos popular resident, but we wisl him luck in Boer-land. The orange orchards arounc here are at present looking splendid^ thanks to the recen rains.
