LOWER PORTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 13 June 1902
LOWER PORTLAND. Orange trees, in many places, would burn if a match were put to the leaves, they are so burnt up. Notwithstanding the bad times, some marked improvements are going on about Lower Portland in the way of making additions to houses, &c. We are much in need of rain down here, as the stock cannot possibly drink the river water any longer. Fresh water is very scarce; even in the wells that have been sunk in gullies, where the water in former years was never know to fail. Thou sands of jelly fish-or blubber-are now up as far as Oblo. Messrs. Mitchell and Watking have been very busy this last few weeks slaughtering pigs and bullocks. They killed no less than thirty large porkers in one day. Mr. M. B. Herps is having a large ditch cut through his low ground to the river, lt will be a great improve ment when finished. We have not seen it yet, but by what we hear, it will be big enough to float the s s. "Bobs" up. Mr. John Herps has the contract in hand. The new Road Su...

The Hawkesbury Herald. WINDSOR, FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 1902. THE RICHMOND BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 13 June 1902
W NDSOIÎ, KUD.lV, JUNE 1,% 1902. THE RICHMOND BRIDGE. The hon. member for tlie Hawkes bury took advantage, at the tale end of a big meeting up at Wheeney Creek last Saturday night, to bring his foot down strongly on what he termed a "very serious and deter nrned and silent, persistent move in \.t to overthrow, when it was i iii educed, the bill to construct the Î: UM mond bridge." As will be seen by our repoit, quite a How of lan guage followed. With many of the issues which cropped up in tlie dis cussion it is not the purpose of this article to deal ;on the main question, however-the matter of the opposi tion to the bridge-we must take up a cudgel. The new bridge at North Richmond is badly wanted. Hume SOO people signed a petition for it. Ami now petitions have, as Mr. Hall explained, been worked up to get the construction of the bridge deferred. These petitions, sent to a member of another constituency, were presented to the Assembly on Tuesday. Alto gether, the alarm was not rung...
FREEMAN'S REACH. A MODEL FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 13 June 1902
FREEMAN'S REACH. A MODEL FARM. The writer a few days ago found himself on the estate of Mr. B. Conlan. He thought he had struck China, not that the surroundings had a celestial appearance, but because so many people were working as busy as bees. «Some were piling corn stalks into enormous stacks, and others fencing off large tracts of lucerne for the pur pose of graizing etock during the winter months. One reminded me of a spider as he clung to the top of the wind-mill, giving it a dressing of wood preserving oil, which commodity Mr. Conlan uses extensively on all out-buildings, gates, farm implements, &c. Whilst admiring the splendid flower and vegetable gardens-whioh are systematically irrigated-a red, white and blue flag shot up from the rear of the homestead. At first it seemed to me to be a relic of the last state election, but the query was soon solved, for I found it was the signal for dinner, and the genial squire confronted me with a cordial invitation A good look o...
RIVERSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 13 June 1902
Mr. G. Freeman won pie liana- * some »ewing machine presented by ' Mesara. Binger and Co.fortne guess ing competition at the late show. It is one of tba firm's best machines, and is valued at thirteen guineas. A good "bob's" worth. Yesterday week the Rev. H. R. A. Wilson, who was chaplain of the 3rd Regiment of New South Wales Mounted Rifles, and formerly of Rouse Hill, just returned from South Africa, was presented hy the men with an address and purse of sovereigns, by which they expressed their appreciation of his services. Matters at the local meat works are getting more serions every day. On Saturday last no less than six of the yardmen were discharged, whilst the number of men in the. killing departments has been greatly re duced. The water supply is at a low ebb, and if rain doesn't come within another fortnight, there will be a very serious outlook. Mr. George Strachan sold his handsome bay horse last week for £15 to Sub-Inspector Clarke, of the police depot. Messrs. L. J. Da...
The Great Drought of 1837. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 13 June 1902
The Great Drought of 1837. Mr. O. H. Tuckeraan, of Mudgee, says he remembers the great drought of 1837, 1838, and 1839. That is something like Gb years ago. Mr. Tuckerman was only a boy then, and lived at the Hawkesbury, but the fearful state of the country then is still before his vision. Near his father's bouse was a large lagoon, which became dry, and in the bed of it could be seen a splendid crop of grass. Tho lagoon had never been known to be dry up to that period, and has never been dry since, so some idea may be formed of the terrible drought that prevailed at that period. -" Western tost, » Mudgee.

THANKSGIVING SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 13 June 1902
THANKSGIVING SERVICES. Peace services vere held in all the churches ia the district on Sunday last. The chord which vibrated through them all was one of gladness. The hope echoed generally was that Great Britain's rule in her new terri tory would further the spread of liberty and christian doctrine, than which nothing could more make for the consolidation and happiness of the human race, and for the establishment of God's empire on earth. Each service concluded with the National Anthem.
COLLEGE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 13 June 1902
COLLEGE NOTES. Mr. G. L. Sutton, is making a col lection of native grasses from the College paddocks, which he hopes to improve by cultivation. The English meadow grass grown at the college this season reached three feet in height, and is splendid for dry seasons. Texas blue grass is also a fine winter grass for stock, and keeps green all the winter. Macaroni wheat is likely to come into favor on account of the macaroni industry being pushed. A firm is being established in Sydney, and is prepared to buy 2,000 bushels of this particular wheat, at threepence ad vance on market price, lt can be grown with good results in the Hawkesbury, and is rust resisting, but belongs to the bearded class. The wool shown at the recent show, from the Romney Marsh, and Shrop shire Bbeep, was an excellent sample. These particular breeds would do well on the farms in the district. It is a matter that should be considered by our farmers, as they are good doers, and there is always a good demand for fat l...
NEWBURY-SPADA "POPS." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 13 June 1902
NEWBURY-SPADA " POPS." Mr. Philip Newbury, the great tenor, and a grand and artistic com bination headed by the famous Ame rican prima donna, Madame Spada, will appear on Tuesday evening next at the School of Arts, Windsor. Numerous residents have already prepared themselves for a great musical treat. It is needless for us to dilate on the great powers of these . expert vocalists, the names of Madame Spada and Philip Newbury being too well known. Every Saturday evening they are running popular concerts in Sydney, and the essence of their entertainment will appear to support them in this district. The great violin virtuoso, Herr Panns, late leader of Mr. Geo. Musgrove's Grand Opera Company, whose wonderful solo play ing has aroused the wildeBt enthusiasm in Sydney, will appear, also the famous musical director and organist, Mr. J. E. Sykes (from the Sydney Philharmonic Society). Selections from "Il Trovatore," the garden scene from '' Faust," will be given. With such a first class co...
THE VINEYARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 13 June 1902

Mr. Barnett preached in The Vine yards Church last Sunday to a large congregation. His subject was " Peace," utilizing special psalms and lessons as appointed. Mr. Arthur Blackett will occupy the pulpit next Sunday.

A Irip to ]few Zealand. THE WONDERLAND OF AUS TRALASIA. [By Rev. S. G. Fielding, author of " The Southern Light," " Down to the Sea in Ships," etc.] For the " Herald." VI. On the following morning, when \ I rose, and looked out towards ¡ . Whakonewanua, " behold the Binoke of tlie country went up, aa the 1 smoke of a great furnace." Columns 1 of steam or smoke constantly as- ¡ cended fr-oin the distant mountain ; ] while all around, in the sanitorium 1 grounds, whither I had gone for a j morning stroll, the steam rose from s hot or boiling springs. In some : places, along the footpaths and road side, it was bursting up through the 1 crest of the soil. J After breakfast, and another bath, I walked out with my landlord who undertook to guide me-to Whakonewanua, to see the geysers and boiling springs. . On the evening of my arrival at ^^^to^a^th^^g^erg^^r^^o^^r^ ^ high. . The day I saw them happened to be bright and warm ; consequently they were less active. The best time for seeing th...

Richmond. SOLDIERS' WELCOME AND PEACE. Nearly thirty turned up to the meeting at the School of Arte last Friday night, the Mayor (Mr. E. Campbell) presiding. It was a most representative and enthusiastic gather ing. Great interest was taken in the proceeding». More than once things waxed rather warm, and bordered on a scene. A row at a peace meeting would be funny ! It was a combined meeting of the returned soldiers' reception committee and the peace demonstration commit tee. Both had decided to combine forces. After the previous minutes of each had been dealt with, the combi nation was duly made, on the motion of Mr. C. 0. Guest. A letter was read from the Mayor of Windsor, explaining what was being done in that town. The general feeling of the meeting was that the two towns should try and fit in with each otter each help the other to make the respective functions a success. Mr, B. Hall, M.L.A., came in here. He explained that Windsor had fixed their demonstration for Coronation Da...
