FREEMAN'S REACH. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902
FREEMAN'S REACH. It is whispered that a wedding is to take place before long, but keep it quiet please, Mr. Editor. Whether report speaks true or not, time will tefl. The Progress Association and De bating Society proposes to have a mock banquet at its ¿ext meeting, on Thursday, 22nd instant, when some fun is expected. Our roads are very dusty just now. j Most of them have been put in good i condition lately, thanks to the efforts j of the Progress Association, but rain is required to harden them and set the newly-laid gravel, &c. Some of the orchards have felt the dry weather severely, the crops being very small, and the leaves shrivelling up and falling off the trees. Mr. GK /JjE0IUnh"O3. l>n«iAi»»>, tsíjii «»op, ananas been sending tbfem to market, realizing very good priçje indeed. ..... We are still waiting f*r rain here. Farmers have not yet been able to sow their wheat and other green crops for winter feed, and if rain does not come this month, it will be too la...
ADMIRAL MORANT INDIGNANT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902
ADMIRAL MORANT INDIGNANT. "Admiral Sir George Digby Morant, who," &nbsp; says our London correspondent, "writes to &nbsp; the papers indignantly denying the offensive statement that he is the father of the man, Morant, executed for murdering unharmed Boers, is a gallant old officer who was fight- ing so long ago as the Burmese war, and &nbsp; nearly 30 years ago won fame and promotion by his services as a pirate exterminator in Chinese waters. He wears a gallery of medals, including the Burmese, the Baltic, the Crimea, and the China tokens, and it is certainly hard that in his old age he should be falsely accused of the paternity of one who, from such evidence as we as yet possess, seems to have been a peculiarly bad sort of scoundrel."—" Daily Telegraph." _ &nbsp; &nbsp;
ORCHARD NOTES. PROHIBITED PLANTS & FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 23 May 1902
ÖMAM NOTES.. The State Minister for Agriculture has received an intimation from the Victorian Government that a proclama tion has been issued prohibiting the sale of any plant or fruit which is affected with codlin moth, mussel scale, red scale, lemon leaf and peel scale, white scale, 6cab or black spot, shot hole, or melanose. The proclamation goes on to state that fruit affected with any of these diseases, even if thev are dead, will not be permitted to be sold, under a penalty of £10. Mr. Kidd thinks it important that growers should be made aware of this proclamation, as it appears that only oranges and other fruits free from diseases ein be exported to Victoria. Dr. Cresswell gives it as his opinion that suitable trees planted around cattle-yards and near to killing-sheds have a value which has not yet been adequately recognised. The best trees ure necessarily those that give off pungent odours, the exudations from the eucalyptus and pepper trees having special disinfectant and ...

The Hawkesburg Herald. WINDSOR, FRIDAY, MAY 23, 1902. AN ALARMIST. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 23 May 1902
WïNDSOK, KUI OA Y, MAY 23. 1902. AN ALARMIST. A writer in an influential nietro p >litan journal (he other day gave a very dreadful account of the dire st ite of things which he said existed in this district as a consequence of the prolonged drought. That the c'rcu instances are serious, unhappily n me can deny. That they are as bad as the writer to whom we are referring would have his readers believe, is, we rejoice to say, not tr ie. Indeed, the writer in questiou contradicts himself, for while giving s ".ch a doleful account of the country ¡i omni Windsor, Richmond, and Riverstone, he adds they are not so bad as in other parts of the State. Amongst other things he says that articles of furniture-chairs, tables, sofas, and the like-were recently sold at Riverstone at sixpence apiece. This may be quite true, but the conclusion which he desires his readers to draw, namely, that be cause someone or other disposed of his furniture at a ridiculously low figure, therefore the residen...

A TOUR TO WI8E MAN'S. Hie editor boated down to Wiseman's Ferry last Saturday night, for some relaxa tion after the " hard slogging " of a show issue, and after taking his first impressions of that beautiful locality, meandered home on his whetl. We expected to publish some notes of same, but the demand on our time and space for other matters bas precluded it. In justice to our Wiseman friends, however, we are pleased to be able to give a good batch of news this issue ; and, having made excellent arrangements for correspondence from there, we can safely undertake in future to give that interesting part of our district its due proportion of representation in the columns of the " Hera'd."

DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS SHOW DAY [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 23 May 1902
J DIDN'T KNOW if WAS SHOW DAY I I It " waV" rather unfortunate for those con cerned that the District Court happened to fall on the third day of the show ; and many would have been pleased if Judge Backhouse had followed the precedent set down in the well known hunting song, and adjourned accordingly. But that wag not to be ; and those who would have preferred to see the drag hunt were disappointed. When the business was over his Honor applied some soothing balm. Had the date been bronght under his notice, he would not have dreamed of making a clash Ur. Paine upspake ; the show date was fixed long ago, and they did not think of communicating in time to get the court altered. Mr. K. Campbell also bad a word to say. In reply, his Honor undertook to avoid any future clash, were it brought under his notice in time.

WOOD-CHOPPING CONTEST. Eight wielders of the axe came for ward for this event, and it proved very excising. The wm was a popular one for Mr. T. Alcorn, of the Bullridge, and although quite a lad, he could give many of the oid'uns a start, and although he had 40 cuts start, there would have been little difiérenos between him and the scratch man off the same mark.

Just the Traveller You Want [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 23 May 1902
Just the Traveller You Want A really gôod traveller is worth hi« weight in gold, or, rather, he would be if be didn't know it. That unfortunate " if " spoils the best traveller in the world, because the better he is the better he knows it. And the more convinced he is of being a really good traveller (and there never waga traveller yet who had the faintest glimmer of a doubt on that point), the higher bis price becomes. Now a man of very moderate ability wants 25 per cent,, all his expenses, a carriage and pair, three months' holiday in the year, an early partnership, bis principal as a father« in-law, and a few other trifling advantages. Can we wonder, then, that the really clever one wants just a Ittle more than ahy firm on earth can afford to give him ? There is only one absolutely perfect " Com mercial " in the world. He has every neces sary quality and attribute. An industry that never tires, an energy that never flag«, a per severance that never despairs, a persistence that ne...
