The Hawkesbury Herald. WINDSOR, FRIDAY, DEC. 12, 1902. THE WINDSOR P. A. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 12 December 1902
©j}e fiafokeéarg p erato. WINDSOR, FRIDAY, DHC. 12,1902. THE WINDSOR P.A. A perusal of the report of Monday night's meeting of tbe Windsor Progress Association suggests that the attitude of some of the member^, is likely to do the Association more harm than good. We are strong advocates of the retention of such an institution in our midst, for it should be the medium by which many an improvement in our public affairs could be brought about ; yet we fear for its future if healthier counsels do not prevail. There is displayed too keen a desire to be " digging" at ali and sundry, whereas what is. wanted is an exercise of tact, an avoidance of what might seem like discourtesy in dealing with the affairs that crop Up, a lofty, pure public spirit, a genuine effort to pull together in all round harmony for the public good. Because every want is not attended to as if by magic, will rushing about bull headed get over the bother .' Ko Parliamentary representative works harder for his district...

BULLRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 12 December 1902
BULLRIDGE. The Rev. J. D. Brown was unable to conduct service at the local Baptist church on fcunday, owing to a severe attack of sciatica, with which he has been suffering for some time. His son, Mr. Lewis Brown, took the service. Speaking of the Baptist church re minds us that it was iutended, over 12 months ago, to plant ornamental trees round tbe grounds. So far no effort has been made to carry out this ?work. By the bye, what about the ornamental trees round Stanley Park ? Shelter of some kind is badly needed here, and a row of quick growing shade trees all round this reserve would greatly add to the beauty of the surroundings. It is not too late if someone will take the matter up. "Oakville," the property of Mr. W. Moses, J.P., of Windsor, looks Splendid at the present time. The whole place is scrupulously clean, and is a credit to Mr. Izzard, the caretaker. The stone fruit from this ideal orchard is equal to anything in the district. No place is better looked after, and as a ...

Bachelor Bill, the Bushman. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 12 December 1902
[BY "BOVEE."] Bill was about the roughest type -of a bushman one could meet. He ?wasa character! We are now far apart, but some times, when I get thinking of my old town away inland, í gire a thought to Bill. The recollections of him recall many an episode that is interesting to look back upon. My first visit to his selection is surely worth record ing. The selection was a -640-acre block, about 15 miles out in the bush. Bill often came to town. He was a great stockman, and a shrewd dealer. Sales of sheep and cattle and horses were held fortnightly ; and at the yards one could always count upon seeing Bill-not forget ting his dog, who was-as well known as his master ! I was only a school boy then, but was very fond of my pony. They used to tell me Pd ride the tale off him ! Often I would ride round to the saleyards, and if I found old Bill starting home wiih stock, I would invariably see him along the road for a couple of miles. Often Bill asked me to go right out home with him. And...
The Battle of Gettysburg. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 12 December 1902
The Battle of Gettysburg. ! - After a lapse of seven years, the manage ment of the Cyclorama decided to replace " Jerusalem " by re-erecting the masterpi°ce of Cycloramic Art, the " Battle of Gettys burg," which caused so much excitement here some years ago. For the last four years America and Europe have been searched for a scene fit to replace Jerusalem and follow Gettysburg," but nothing could be found that would not suffer too much.by com parison. A South African scene could not be had, a battle scene was wanted, and a constant wish being expresped by Cyclorama visitors to see Gettysburg again, it was determined-as nothing equal to it in any part of tne world could be found-to re erect Gettysburg. This has been done, and visitors to the city will, after recent events, find a special interest in seeing what war really means. The management have added a most facinating novelty to the Hall of Illusions, which, with a quantity of new Cinematograph filmB, make up a splendid exhibitio...
KURRAJONG. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 12 December 1902
KURRAJONG. Mr. H. E. Peck, of Kurrajong Heights, has purchased the orchard property of Mr. L. Ballard, at a satis factory figure. What might have been a very serious accident occurred the other night, when Mies Kate McMahon was thrown out of the sulky on account of a sudden Slunge of the horse her brother was riving. Her dress caught on the guard iron of the dash board, and she was carried along in front of the wheel for some distance, when she fell to the ground, the .wheel passing over her. We regret to say that she suffered acute pain from her bruises and scratches. A cricket match was played on the Comleroy Road wicket on Saturday between Kurrajong and Colo clubs, and resulted in an easy win for the latter. A great &lt;rowd turned out to see the match, and it was a gay sight to see so many ladies present. A valedictory tea meeting and social evening is being arranged to afford the residents of Kurrajong an opportunity of saying farewell to the Rev. M. and Mrs. Gray. It i...
