RICHMOND. Obituary. DEATH OF MRS. B. PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 April 1900
RICHMOND. Obituary. DEATH OF MBS. B. PATER- SON. We regret this week to record the sad death of Mrs. Robert Pater- son, of Windsor-street, Bichmond, which took place on Thursday night last. The deceased was a daughter of Mrs. Sly, senr.,. of March-street, Bichmond, and was beloved by all who had the pleas- ure of her acquaintance. On Mon- day deceased complained of being un- well, when Dr. Helsham was called in, but all efforts to save her life proved unavailing, and she passed quietly away on Thursday night as atated above. Some six months ago the deceased received a stroke of paralysis, and lately has suffered from a kidney trouble, and it was. no doubt due to the complications arising' from these troubles that hastened her end. The late Mrs. Paterson leaves a husband and four little ones to mourn her loss, and the whole of the district sympa- thise with them in the sad loss they have sustained. The funeral took place on Friday last, when the re- mains, which were enclosed in a ha...

FREEMAN'S REACH. Mr. Griffiths, representative of the fruit-buying-firm of Pope and Griffiths, was through this district on Monday last, with a. view of baying up the several fruit croptv Mr. Black, of Dural, was also through the district on a similar mission. we were this week n shown a giant cattle pumpkin grown-by Mr A. Farlow, which turns the scales at 125lbs. In the same patch there are numbers which would nearly go lOOlbs. We wil| have some- thing to say of " Stillwell Farm" next issue. The retched condition of tho roadway and hill leading to tho Enfield road, is causing no end of grumble from the residents residing^ hereabouts, it is positively dan- gerous, ¿nd unsafe even for a horse- man to ride down, much lees to drive a vehicle down.

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 April 1900
LOCAL AND GENERAL. Last Monday afternoon the Postmaster, Mr. Fowler, with Mr. South journeyed to Wilberforce to replace a telephone instrument. Alfred Murphy, lately of Wind- &nbsp; cor, who was tried at the Central Criminal Court last week, with assault and robbery, was found guilty and sentenced to two year's hard labour. As we predicted last week, the Third Regiment Band has been removed from Windsor, and it is hard to say who is to blame. The members have been officially noti- fied that the headquarters of the Band will in future be at Bathurst. Bert and Fred Cecil, formerly of Windsor, were in town last week on a short stay. We under- stand that these two enterprising young fellows have set up as carriers in Sydney, and from all accounts they appear to be doing very well. In illustration of the uncer- tainty of cricket, last Saturday's match College v. Windsor " fills the bill" ; Windsor made 74 runs in the first innings. The College had eight wickets down for 64.

THE APIARY. (From the "Agricultural Gazette.") [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900
THE APIARY. BY ALBERT GALE. (From the " Agricultural Gazette.") ID. the previous article on this subject I traced, in vernacular language, as much as it would admit of, the queen bee from maturity to maternity. In referring to last month's article, it will be noted that I stated it was the queen that became impregnated, and not the egg-the ovary, and not the ovum-a method of reproduc ? tion not uncommon in the insect world ; but in the higher orden of oviperous terrestrial animals, with the fishes es pecially BO, it is the egg that is fecundated, and that, too. in most cases, after extru sion. Here I propose to deal with the queen from the extrusion of the egg to the ma ture and perfect insect; nay, in one sense it will be necessary for me to deni with the egg prior to extrusion. We speak of the inmates of the hive as thc queen, drones, and workers. There is nothing wrong in it. We ateo refer to the queen as having the power to lay eggs that will produce these three beings. Drones a...

A social, promoted by the friends of the late Mr. James Scott, who died 6ome four months ago. fer the purpose of raia ing sufficient funds to enable a memorial stone to be erected to his memory, was he>d at O'Brien's Hall on Monday night la6t. There waB a very large attendance, and some 45 couples graced the floor. Dancing commenced at about half-past eight, and was kept up till nearly two o'clock. Too much praise cannot be given to the committee for the manner in which they worked for this laudable purpose. Messrs. Albert Ford and Harry Motttam acted a9 joint secretaries, while Messrs. Ohas. Sasse and W. Tout were the treasurers. Mr. J. O'Brien acted as M.C., and as such ga Ve every satisfaction The music providod was all that could be desired, and was played by Miss Nellie Norris (piano) anl Mr. E. White, Pen rith (violin). The handsome sum of £7 8s 6d were the proceeds for the even ing, but as a larger sum is required to meet the purpose, lt is proposed to hold a simi...

ORCHARD & FARM. _-« For Laying out Five-acre Orchard. If the orchard ie in a district where citrus-trees thrive, and it is the intention of the owner to plant 1.2, or 3 acres these fruits, plant these on the front row 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, &a, as far as they will This gives the place a nice green appear ance all the year round. The deciduous trees can then be planted in the remain ing rows, planting either peats, apples or apricots jost behind the citrus trees and peaches or plums at the back. In staking out the orchard, the base line would be row No. 2, as this would be the first row of orchard trees ; row No. 2 ie 33 feet from the fence ; that from fence to breakwind 9 feet, and from the breakwind to the first row of fráit tr¿es, 24 feet ; or, in all, 33 feet from the fence.

FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 1900. -1 The Editor's Little Troubles, j The lot of an editor of a provin cial paper is certainly not cast in pleasant places. He has much tu i contend with, and the satisfaction of dodging irate correspondents is more worrying than pleasant. For «orne time past a controversy has been carried on in the columns &lt;>f the ADVOCATE, relatiug to a river excursion to Wiseman's Ferry. Now, while bein*' "Iways happy to air tte views, or grievances of our many correspondente, we must per force ' draw the line " when the subj-ci ventilated upon has become, stale and unprofitable* readio^rmat ter to both our subscribers and our ; -selves We notified to a Wise man's Ferry correspondent through our columns that the controvery as far as the ADVOCATE was con-1 cerned-was closed. Instead of1 looking at our action re the matter in a fair and sensible light, we re ceived the following hasty and un called for letter from the corres pondent in question, together with a bu...

When at his riverside retreat at Shepperton he is often to be seen in a pair-oared boat in company with some famous rowing man, pulling away with as much energy as an athlete half his age.

A Pugilistic Encounter, [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900
A Pugilistic Encounter, A PERSON from the country who holds a good position, and was, in his younger days something of a pupilistic-put in an evening re cently, not wisely but too well, in a Sydney hotel. He got into heated conversation with someone there, with the result that they challenged each other to fight. Fifteen pounds was put on both sides, and an appointment made for a few days ahead ; then both went to bed. Next morning our friend awoke to his situation, re membered he was no* longer young, and showed he had some good sense by going to a legal friend to seek advice. The lawyer told him to go home and let the £15 go. (It should be explained that he found out his antagonist was a professional " pug.") Not liking to part with so desirable a sum of money without an effort, he determined to go through with it at the risk of a knock-out. So he wended his way in the early hours of the morning to the try sting place, and, good luck to him, after waiting a reasonable time, no one...

The Fiscal Question. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900
The Fiscal Question. THE Star seems to think that on the establishment of Federa tion the local Parliament will not be able to further tinker with the tariff. This is not so ; clause 86 certainly might mean anything. "On the establishment of the Commonwealth the collection and control of duties of customs and exise shall pass to the Executive Goverment pf the Common wealth," but read in conjunction with clause 90, its meaning is sufficiently clear to. On the im-, j position of uniform duties of cus toms the power of the (Federal) Parliament to impose duties of customs and of excise shall be come exclusive. Politicians who live ou the game wilL be glad to know that our local Parliament ; can tinker with the tariff for some time yet.
The Imperial Zollverein. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900
The Imperial Zollverein. MR. CHAMBERLAIN in a recent speech said that the Imperial Zollverein was the only form of Union which the British people are likely to accept. The pro posals embraced in -these words are not very clearly under- » stood, even by the writers on the Sydney dailies who venture to discuss the question. The theory of the Zollverein, in its entirety, is that British and her colonies should enter into a customs union, with freetrade among themselves and a high tariff against the out side world. The same principle which gives us intercolonial free trade in our Federation is to be applied throughout the Empire. Of course the subject is now only in its infancy, and the probabili ties are that if an attempt were made to bring it down to the arena of practical politics the infinite detail of arrangement necessary would prove the pro posal wholly impracticable. But without discussing those details there are certain broad principles touched upon byadvocates of the innovati...

SACKVILLE. (From our own correspondent.) On Saturday a cricket match took place between the Park Villa C 0. and Oakleigh CC. (from Sydney). After a pleasant game Park Villa proved too strong for the Sydney team, who were all at sea with Books' bowling, and only made 67 runs against Park Villa's 235. Stubbs (67 retired), W. Mitchel!, and S. Tuokerman played the best for Park Villa. At night a concert took place in the School of Arts in aid of the local cricket club, and was a decided success. The concert was one of the best ever held at Sackville, thanks to the sydney visitors. Mr. Joe Aspery was in the chair. Fol lowing is the programme :-Pianoforte solo, Miss Smith : song, * Newbury's love song," Mr. Booker; recitation, " Spanish champion," F. Stubbs ; song, " Where we meet,'' Miss Robinson ; song, " Down went the wicket," Mr. Jones ; song, " Flight of Ages," Mr. F.

Humiliating Journalism. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 April 1900
Humiliating Journalism. AFTBB tlie great fuss the Sydney dailies have been making about the plague it is amusing to read a long article in the " senior morn ing daily" pointing out that it was really nothing, and that coun try people had been making a very great mistake in attaching so much importance to the news? published daily about the out break. The bewildered reader will not know which to believe, this article in one column trying to prove one thing, and that in another headed "The Scourge spreading-Eight more cases Th,ree deaths." Undoubtedly the plague scare, as created and fos tered by the Sydney papers is doing and will do, Sydney an enormous amount of harm. In some lines trade is almost at à stati&still, and with Easter com ing On, when stores and hotels look for the influx of country visitors, no preparations are being made for them as usual. Hotel keepers wilt^se unpronounceable language when asked about the plague and will say that in many case» orders for acco...
