Australia's Death Roll. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Australia's Death Roll. There was a great gathering in the Sydney Town Hall last Sunday afternoon, on the occasion of the unveiling of a tablet by the Premier to perpetuate the memory of Ser . geant-Major Griffin, the first Aus- tralian soldier killed in the South African war. Mr. Lyne took a special train from Melbourne, where the conference of Premiers was sitting, in order to be present. It was suggested by the various speakers that a national monument of some sort should be erected to imperishably record the names of those Australians who fell on the field of honor. Sir George Dibbs thought that a drill hall for recruits should be built, on the walls of which should be tablets to inscribe the names and deeds of Australian warriors who fell in battle, the hope being expressed by Major General French that any such proposed temple of fame would be an architectural acquisition to the city. In the case Police v. Mrs. Wheaton, last Tuesday at the Windsor Police Court, before the P.M.,...
The Show. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
The Show. NOTWITHSTANDING the plague, which undoubtedly kept a great number of country people away from Sydney, the Show passed off very well. There was consid- erable improvement noticeable on the ground, the chief of which was the new buildings to house the district exhibits, and also a new building for the various Go- vernment farm exhibits, in place of the tumble-down shed they have had on previous occasions. The district societies exhibits at- tracted no end of attention and elicited much commendation, not only from the casual wayfarer, but also from reliable authorities on the matter. They were, in fact, one of the features of the the Show, and, it is to be hoped, now that the ice is broken, next year will see the entire building, commodious though it is, crammed with exhibits from very many competing societies. The system of judging by points is fair, because an exhibit can ac tually hold 9, very prominent place without/coming anywhere like winning the blue ribbon, and a care...
PASSING NOTES. The W[?] Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
PASSINI NOTES. -'? «! The Wi» k Progress. THE -war continues to draw its slow length along, and still ap- pears to be an incalculable dis- tance from finishing. It is now some weeks since Robertstentered Bloemfontein in triumph, and since then he has been busily pre- paring for a further adrante» All this delay is no doubt né^essary, but it is very tedious to thejnews paper reader, both in Australia and England, and must be e^çr so much more so to the soldier on *'active" service, who dôes ¡not Kappen to be engaged in sacha prosaic occupation as building entrenchments. When .%ptd ^Roberts makes a move again, there is little doubt that it will hf the beginning of an/important advance, and beyond sajing that Ms ultimate donation is Pre experience of Roberts so far has done the very thing that local strategist-writers had never dreamt he would do, and has left undone those which he was announced to be certain to do. If the enemy are as much in the dark as to bur great gener- al's inten...
Judging Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Judging Horses. THE judges at the recent R.A. Show could not agree on the ex- act points upon which a horse should be judged in the thorough- bred section., Some held that they should have first regard to the style of animal most likely to increase the general usefulness of horses generally, while others, the majority, leaned to the view that the racehorse is the ideal animal. Now a racehorse is bred to do one thing only, to race a certain distance, not more than three miles at highest speed ; that is the sole object for a racing; breeders desire, but an ideal horse forthat might be comparatively useless for other purposes. But because a horse can race such a distance in very quick time is not a proof that he is the very best horse a stockman can use for mustering all day and every day in the mountains. If it were so then the cry would be "breed racehorses"; but what we want the Australian horse to be is use- ful, it should be the best possible for ordinary bushman's use, for army p...
Privy Council Appeal. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Privy Council Appeal. MB. CARRUTHERS in a letter to the London " Times " says that Australia will not mind if the Bill is altered so far as the Privy Council Appeal Clauses are con- cerned. As a matter of fact the people of Australia do not feel strongly one way or the other on those clauses, the Bill would have received much the same support, and much the same opposition had the Bill contained directly opposite conditions. But the. question at issue is much deeper than that. TjUe principle at stake ' is whether Australia will admit, without protest, the right of the Imperial Parliament to alter our Commonwealth Bill. Further, if "we allow such an action on the part of the Home Parliament, and ' the Pill is altered, will the Act j be so worded that the people of Australia may again express their approval of it at the polls, or will it simply be passed "over our heads'?" It is very doubtful if letters like this one do any good published in London just now, and if Mr. Carruthers had n...
The Hero of Mafeking. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
The Hero of Mafeking. Of the hero of Mafekinsr's school- days, Dr. Haig Brown, the former head master of Charterhouse, has been telling a correspondent. " I notice that the name is invariably mispronounced," said the Doctor. "The'a' in Baden is generally given the sound ' ah,' but it should have the usual sound of ' a ' as in * Bathing Towel,' which was his nickname among the boys at scbool. The boy was -essentially Í the father of the man ; he was very active, lively, full of fun and i amusement, and exceedingly popular with his school-felfows. An extremely clever boy io every sort of way, his accompliehmonts were numerous. He was fond of athletics of all kinds, and ia all he undertook showed faculty of re- source, coupled with a keen sense - of humor."

MARKETS. Sydney, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
MARKETS. Sydney, Thursday. The markets were rather quiet in tonev ' bat notwithstanding a fair amount ot business was done in most departments. Supplies available were good, and euffiV cient for requirements. Movements ia prices were few and of little importance, A fair sale was noted for maize, while 1 oats had a good deal of attention at about ' late rates. Cape barley made 2s. 4i. un- der the hammer. Chickwheat was firnt and in good demand at 2s. 3d. to 2s. 63. Both bran and pollard were plentiful and rather quiet at 10£d each. Local chaff moved more freely, prices being a trifle firmer on account of the smaller supplie» offered for sale. Thc arrivals of luceme continued moderate, and the demand steady uptoG5s for choice samples. At auction dark straw in derrick bales had good sale at 45s per ton. The market for potatoes was somewhat dull, and holder* in the majority of cases were prepared to accept a slight reduction in order to affect sales. Onions were in fairly good requestj ...

Show Stock Sales. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Show Stock Sales. MKKSKS. Hil], Clark and Co. were particularly interested factors in this year's exhibition, in that some of the finest specimens of cattle shown were under their care, and their sales formed a big attraction in the grazing world. On Thursday the auction box was occupied by Mr. J. J. Howell-the firm's representative-and it is pleasing to be able to chronicle an appreciative assemblage of buyers vas in attendance, and competition proving strong, business resulted in vendors' favor. The demand was more particularly directed towards shorthorns, and while the Herefords and Devons came in for special notice, the sparseness of buyers from Queensland, most probably, attributable io the exist- ing scare, the enquiring for these classes was somewhat lacking. In the short- horn class the first draft submitted was from the well-known Holmhurst Stud, from Bathurst, and thc auctioneers had great pleasure in being able to compli- ment Mr. Holmes on the general excellence of his o...
OTHER EXHIBITS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
OTHER EXHIBITS. STACK would not permit our making extensive remarks upon the many other interesting and important exhibits set forth by private individuals and firms. Suffice to say that they speak eloquently, not only for the wealth and resources ol' the colony, but also for the energy and skill of our people. Some of the exhibits of individual fanners are well worthy of a place beside the production of combined science, money, and labour, as shown by the Agricultural Colleges, whilst the many examoles of the skilled trades show that we have in Xew South Wales artisans and tradesmen equal to any iii the world.

Shows and Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
Shows and Progress. The benefit of shows is distinct, far reaching and emphatic. Each district has its own annual exhibition wherein is collected evidences of the industries which makes it what it is. The various producers of these exhibits gather together, compare notes, and lay up a store of knowledge which benefits them in their work during the coming year. On a large scale this is what the Royal Agricultural Society's Annual Show does. What the local Show is to the individual district the great Sydney exhibition is to the entire colony. There all interested in the many industries of the country can see evidences of progress, samples of the very best in its kind of every article which the colony is able to produce, from a thoroughbred stallion to the latest variety in turnips, each with their special use, and each filling a necessary place in the colony's progress a'nd welfare. Thus exhibits are sought not only all over the colony, but from without the colony, tn order that pro- ...
DISTRICT SOCIETIES EXHIBITS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
DISTRICT SOCIETIES EXHIBITS. The Committee of the Royal Agricul taral Society deserve the highest com- mendation for the innovation of the District Societies' Competition. Of course, the entire Show is an exhibition of various district exhibits, inasmuch as it is the Agricultural Show of Xew South Wales, but this idea gives greater iuterest to the exhibition and kindles a healthy rivalry am«mg the various societies, so much so that it is hoped that in future years so many districts will enter for the competition as to necessitate even further provision being made for their accommodation. Glancing over the list of headings under which the awards were made-which will be found in another column-it seems evident that an improvement can be effected in cer- tain particulars. Sugar, for .instance, should not have been included at all, except on the " etc. " at the end. Sugar is an item which can only IM» grown in Messrs.

PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 27 April 1900
PIGS. Whether dairying is au adjunct to thc farnl or the farm to the dairy, depeuds a good deal upon the district in which the work is carried on and other local circumstances: but, certain it is,.that pigs are an adjunct to each, more espe- cially to the dairy. The exhibit of pigs was fairly good, showing some very fine animals in the ordinary Yorksliire and Berkshire breeds, while the Tamworth strain was represented by one solitary boar-if we exclude a couple of young ones, non-competitive, wluch vrere to be seen at the Agricultural Department's pavilion. There are many waste sub- stances ou a dairy farm, which, but for the pig would be found useless, whereas, the presence of that animal turns such waste products to good use ; such, for instance, as potato peels, cabbage leaves, turnip tops, mangel tops, and such things, the two latter of which roots arc used to feed the dairy cattle. Then there is the skim milk which is over from the dairy after feeding the calves. Many an Americ...
