Salvation Army. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Salvation Army. &nbsp; The members of the Salvation Army are now in the midst of their annual week of self denial. The effort is being made in order to support the very extensive mission- ary work of the Army. From Commandant Booth, who is the head of the movement in Australasia, down to the latest recruit the utmost efforts are being put forth to make it a success and a record work. On the prin- ciple that example is better than precept all the officers and soldiers are expected to deny themselves of anything luxurious or unneces- sary, and are also canvassing the towns and cities of the colony in order to obtain ad- ditional aid. Such work as the Army ls do- ing needs but little recommendation from us. 'We are certain that Windsor will not be behind in their practical sympathy with the effort now being made. Give the ADVOCATE a trial for quotations for job printing.

COLO. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
COLO &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (From our own correspondent.) Most of the apricot trees about have very good crops of fruit on, particularly the &nbsp; earliest varieties. Mr. H. Jones has a large area of wheat this season. He had a few acres of this crop last year, which yielded very well, indeed. The orchards around here, both stone and citrus fruit, are all looking splendid just now, thanks to the exceedingly favourable weather we are getting. Mr. Raymond Metherell has been playing havoc among the quails lately. He is prac- tising for a pigeon match, and he thinks that quails afford excellent practice for pigeon shooting. Mr Charlie Wells is breaking his well- known race horse (Mick) into harness. So far the animal seems almost indomitable, but Charlie seems undismayed, and say" Mick " &nbsp; will make a 'rum 'un in a sulky,. The aphis pest, which is among the melons, has already done considerable damage, and there is no telling how much longer i...
RIVERSTONE. (From Our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
RIVERSTONE. &nbsp; (From our own Correspondent.) &nbsp; German Charlie paid a visit to some of his old patients on Tuesday. Influenza is very bad down this way. Mr. and Mrs. T.

Owners of unregistered dogs and stray horses had better look ont. Our local con- stable is on the warpath Work at the saw mills is at present very brisk, many truck loads of sawn wood are being dispatched daily to the metropolis. Business at the Meat Preserving Com- pany's Works is beginning to look up a bit. Several very large train loads of sheep have been arriving daily for the past week or so. Mr.McCutcheon met with an accident re- cently, being knocked down by a bullock. His leg was doubled under him, but luckily no bones were broken. We are glad to hear he will be at work again this week. We are pleased to hear that Miss Pomfret, who re...

A Dream. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
A Dream. Mr. W. C. Allen, of Richmond, while he lay asleeping one night last week, had the pleasure of witnessing the Caulfield Cup, which will be run to-morrow, in a dream. Mr. Allen in his vision saw a horse named W.P. winning as he liked. He, as well as many others in th e district, had never heard of a horse with such a name ; therefore, judge his surprise on scanning the list of the Cup nominations to find such a horse nom- inated. He now stands to win £1500 on the strength of his dream ; and should the horse win he will bring to this district some thing like £3000. We are informed that the above horse has won five out of six races in which he has started.
War! War! War! [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
War! War! War! Not with the Boers, but with Sydney travel- lers, who take your money out of the district and leave nothing in return. Mr. E. Brown begs respectfully to inform the inhabitants of Richmond and surrounding districts that he has opened a first-class tailoring establish ment in this town, where he is prepared to do tailoring in all its branches at prices which defy competition for cat, style, work- manship, material, etc. All work done on the premises. Give him a trial. Patronise local industry and keep the money circulat- ing in your own district, as he has come to stay among you. A large number of townsfolk patronised the Juvenile Industrial Exhibition held at Windsor. Mr. Perry, father of Mr. W. I. Perry, C. P.S., Windsor, was staying in Richmond on a visit last week. The lecture by Mr. Brooke, which was to &nbsp; be given on Monday last on Oddfeilowship, has been postponed for a fortnight. Mr. T. Pearce, of Yarramundi, refused thirty guineas for his racing mar...
PITT TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
PITT TOWN. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. John Lindsay had a valuable grey- &nbsp; hound die last week, through being bitten by &nbsp; a snake. &nbsp; &nbsp; The local cricket club cleared £3 5s out &nbsp; &nbsp; of the recent steamer excursion after ex- &nbsp; penses were paid. &nbsp; A cricket match between the local club and Windsor on Saturday last resulted in an &nbsp; easy win for the latter. &nbsp; The sale of Mr. J. Weaver's properly, &nbsp; conducted by Mr. J. B. Johnston, failed to secure a buyer, the only offer made being &nbsp; £100. &nbsp; A large number of local folks attended the &nbsp; tea meeting at Wilberforce on Wednesday &nbsp; last in connection with St. John's Church. &nbsp; Mr. W. W. Brown has been laying out a &nbsp; very nice little orchard at his residence, &nbsp; whic...
Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
WEDDING On Wednesday of last -week St. Peter's Church, Richmond, was the scene of a brilliant gathering,-when Miss Blanche Sly, eldest daughter of Mr. W. Sly, of Richmond, was united in holy matrimony to Mr. Henry Powell, son of Mr. Henry Powell, of Rich- mond Bottoms. Owing to the bride and bridegroom being members of two highly respected families, it was only natural that the Church would be crowded. The cere- mony was performed by the rector, the Resv, J. Howell-Price. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a becoming dress of grey glace silk, richly embroidered with steel trimmings on grey chiffon, and white tucked yoke of silk and chiffon, with a very pretty grey . hat, trimmed with grey and white chiffon, white tips. She carried à handsome bouquet of white carnations and ferns, and wore a neat brooch of diamonds and sapphires, the gifts of the bridegroom She was attended by Miss Jessie Sly as chief bridesmaid, attired in a very pretty costume of cream silk lustre, t...
The Last of the Pirates; OR, DOOM DRIVEN. A Romance of the End of Ocean Outlawry. CHAPTER XLI. A GUEST AT RANDOLPH RANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
The Last of the Pirates; &nbsp; OR, DOOM DRIVEN &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A Romance of the End. of Ocean Outlawry.* &nbsp; BY COL. PRENTISS ÍNGRAHAM, Author of " Merle the Mutineer," &c, &c. CHAPTER XLI. &nbsp; A GUEST AT RANDOLPH RANGE It was towards the close of a lovely day, forty-eight hours after leaving Baltimore, when Basila Bartona's &nbsp; &nbsp; sloop came in sight of the plantation home of Rodney Randolph. It was a beautiful place, with grounds &nbsp; sloping down to the edge of the little basin, or cove, which was called "The &nbsp; &nbsp; Harbour," and about it were flower- &nbsp; gardens, lawns, and many rustic' &nbsp; arbours inviting repose. &nbsp; The mansion was large, rambling, &nbsp; and almost encircled by verandahs, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; while a beautiful beach of sand wound &...
CHAPTER XLII. BAD NEWS,—ONCE MORE AFLOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
CHAPTER XLII. &nbsp; BAD NEWS,-ONCE MORE AFLOAT. &nbsp; The days glided swiftly by at Ran- dolph Range, and Basil Barron had &nbsp; been persuaded to extend his visit to &nbsp; four weeks, where he had only in- &nbsp; tended to remain for one-fourth that &nbsp; &nbsp; time. 'What is the name of your craft, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Captain Bartona?' asked Luline Leslie, who spent about half her time at Randolph Range &nbsp; &nbsp; ' The Sea Venus, Miss Luline. ' &nbsp; &nbsp; ' What a pretty name !' &nbsp; ' At last the day came when he was &nbsp; compelled to depart, and sad farewells &nbsp; &nbsp; were said, and the little sloop headed &nbsp; &nbsp; out of the harbour on her way to Baltimore. He was greatly missed &nbsp; after his departure, and Rodney Ran- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; dolp...
CHAPTER XLIII. A SPECTRE BETWEEN THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
CHAPTER XLIII A SPECTRE BETWEEN THEM. &nbsp; Back to his vessel went Rodney Randolph when the three months' leave was up. His face wore not the happy look which it had when he had gone home, for a shadow was upon it. That shadow had been brought there because his bright anticipations had not been wholly realised as to winning the love of Luline Leslie. When he returned home he felt that she did love him, and he was happy. Then it seemed that a shadow fell between them. What that shadow was he did not know. Ever kind to him, she yet seemed not to feel the joy in his presence that she once had. He tried to reason over the matter, and could find no solution. However, the day before the one set for his departure, he asked Luline to ' take a row vith him upon the waters. There was almost a dead calm, the sun was setting in a piled-up mass of gold and crimson, and all nature seemed at rest. She accepted the invitation, and soon Rodney Randolph was lazily rowing over the waters sil...
CHAPTER XLIV. WITHOUT MERCY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
CHAPTER XLIV. WITHOUT MERCY. &nbsp; Months passed away, after the de- parture of the Sea Venus, and the return of Rodney Randolph to go back to his vessel, which was to be stationed at Boston. Letters came from him as before, but not as before were they filled with messages to Luline Leslie. There was always " my love to Luline " in them, but no more. He had told her he would wait for her answer, and he meant to do so, and not a word would he say to prejudice him in her favour for good or bad. At Randolph Range matters went on as usual, though the colonel and his good wife could not but see that there was not the same happy spirit in Kate and Luline that there had been. The two maidens were seated in the arbour one afternoon, when a sail came rapidly up the bay. It was a schooner, and they knew that but one vessel which they had ever seen in those waters carried that vast spread of canvas. They looked for a long time at the schooner without speak ing, and then their eyes met...
Too Bright. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
Too Bright. He : ' That little brother of yours is rather bright, isn't he ? He told me just now he should expect a penny every time I kissed you.' She : ' The wretch ! You didn't give him anything, did you ?' He : 'I gave him half a crown in advance.' A Western editor apologises for the deficiency of the first edition of his paper by saying that he was detained at home by a second edition in his family. The people of Paris consume annually over 2,000 tons of snails.
CHAPTER XLV. "ONE MORE UNFORTUNATE." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
CHAPTER XLV. " ONE HORE UNFORTUNATE." At last the time came when the Sea Venus was to sail. &nbsp; Away sailed the schooner in the gathering gloom, while poor Kate threw herself down on her knees by the open window, and gazed after the departing vessel, while her heart seemed almost crushed with bitter, silent grief. Away sailed the pirate vessel, until the shadows of night enveloped it, and then she was stripped of canvas and lay motionless upon the waters of the Chesapeake. Then a boat was lowered, the oars were muffled, and the two oarsmen pulled slowly back towards the Leslie homestead, while in the stern sat Basil Barton, grim and silent. A landing was made, and up to the arbour went the outlaw lover. There Luline awaited him, but she was not alone. ' Basila, this is my old nurse, Mam' Priscilla, whom you remember. She will go with me, for I have told her just what I intend to do.' Basil Barton smothered a curse, but he said : ' Certainly, Luline, I am more than glad th...
Pat's Penance. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
Pat's Penance. 'Now, Pat,* said his reverence to Patty O'Shea, 'Ye mustn't be saving the worrds &nbsp; that ye say ; Ye're the bouldest gossoon that I iver have heard For mixing your spache wid the blackguardly worrd.' &nbsp; ' And Pat,' said the priest, ' I will cure ye, me lad, &nbsp; Of spache so uniligant, shameful and bad. Put a stone in a bag ai ch bad worrd that ye spake. And bring them toute at the ind of a wake.'; Said Patty, * Ter riverence is wonder ful kind, And sure what ye're spakin' is quite tome mind; 'Tis the divil, for sure, and bad cess to his skin 1 That makes me be using sich language o' sin.' So Pat he went off to his work for the day, And still the bad words came from Patty O'Shea; And 'tis certain for every bad word that he spoke He picked up a pebble and dropped in his poke. At the end of a week: to the priest he came back, And bore on his shoulder a great heavy sack. , 'Why. Pat,' said the father, 'and what have ye brought me ?' 'Why...
Breeding Up Stock. From the Agricultural Gazette of N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 20 October 1899
Breeding Up Stock. &nbsp; &nbsp; From the Agricultural Gazette of N.S. W. It is no use trying to breed up stock if the breeder is fickle-minded, changing first from one breed and then to another. In any breeding for excellence a definite purpose must he aimed at from the first, and the individuals selected for breeding should be those possessing the required characteristics in largest degree. But what is called grading up stock is further &nbsp; complicated by the necessity when the grading-up process has once begun of keeping closely to the original lines. If this is not done the stock will become, not a grade but a mongrel, worse than the common native stock for breeding purposes. This rule is very often &nbsp; violated by breeders. They believe that &nbsp; a cross ot two well-defined breeds will combine the qualities that they desire. &nbsp; In this they probably judge rightly, as so simple a problem as combining one breed with anot...
