WISEMAN'S FERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 19 December 1902

WiSEltoÄN'S FERRY. The weather here is delightful. The crops <rf maize, melons, pump kins, and fruits are the best seen on the river for some years. Your scribe had the pleasure of Beeing a box of assorted fruit from one of the best orchards on the river -that of Mr. Chaseling, of the Australian Farm. They consisted of early peaches, apricots, and the China peach, and were, indeed, a I treat to look at. Some of the China j peaches measured 8 inches in cir- ¡ cumference. The Briggs' peaches were a splendid sample ; ditto the apricots. Mr. Chaseling says he pulled^ no less than ten gins of apri cots off the one tree. This shows what can be done by carefully studying the trees and attending to them. One of the best kept and most profitable small orchards on the river is Mr. Amos Stewart's, Lower Hawkesbury. His early peaches brought as high as 13s. per half-case. His returns for some hundreds average 8s 6d per half-case. In dozens of instances two rows were sufficient to fil...

BETHLEHEM. (Written for the "Hawkesbury Herald.") [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 19 December 1902

BETHLEHEM. (Written for the " Hawkesbury Herald.") 'Twas night ; o'er Bethlehem's hills and plain« The silent shadows gently 6teal ; The perfumed ripple of thc wind The drowsy shepherds scarcely feel. The silvery moon bas sunk behind The dark Judean hills afar ; The earth is filled with mystic light The brilliance of a single star. That mystic star ! That glorious light ! In silence floated through the sky ; Lit np the birthplace of our Saviour With light supernal from on high. Its mystic light, its glorious radiance, Shone o'er the Saviour's lowly bed ; Cast through the darkness of that manger  halo round hU God-like head. Far in the east, the holy magi Described that brilliant wondrous thing ; Beheld in it a princely Bign The symbol of the promised King. With joy they eather up their treasures ; Gold, frankincense, and myrrh they bring. With happy steps, to Salem's city, To worship Christ the heavenly Kin?. Far o'er the heath, 'mid flowery pastures, The shepherds watch their floc...

jWH HAPPY (¡lipi^S. CHRISTMAS! We heartily wish our readers a happy Christmas! It is our first 'Christmas amongst the good people .of the Hawkesbury ; we trust it will ,not be the la«t. The thoughts which gather round this festive season are old-very old ; but they are still dear, thank God, to the human race. In spite of the wonderful advancement of science and learning ; in spite of the changes in our social and political life wrought by these nineteen hundred years-changes which have altered the face of the globe, the associations of Cliristmas Day, we repeat, are . still dear and delightful to millions of men aud women-a ye, and the children, too. It may be that Christmas Day is not kept as in the years gone by. Possibly it has been robbed of some of its solemn associations by the utilitarian and materialistic tenden cies of modern times. Still, we would cherish its associations, for our own sakes as well as for the sake of the multitudes who are passed away. What, after all, is...

St. Joseph's Convent. ANNUAL SCHOOL EXHIBITION, DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZES. SOME CLEVER PUPILS. For many years past St. Joseph's Convent, Windsor, has been noted for the excellence of its bre&king-up enter» tainments ; and this year's function, -which took place on Wednesday after noon, was quite equal to any that had previously been held there.
