The Abbottoirs Question. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899
The Abbottoirs Question. THE district is to be congratulated t upon the forcible way in which the recent deputation laid before Mr. See, our daims to have the abat toirs removed to the vacant lands on Castlereagh Common. Although it was not to be expected that the Minister could make a definite re ply, his answer, that he would give our arguments close consideration when the time comes for the Government to consider the matter, is highly satisfactory. Mr. LeeB who introduced the deputation and other gentlemen who followed him, notably Alderman Kelly of. Rich mond, laid in a clear and succinct manner, the whole case before the Minister ; the various advantages which have been enumerated in our columns from time to time were ably emphasised and clearly stated, so much so, that, judging by the Minister's reply a decidedly favor able impression was made upon him. It is to bo regretted that tho deputation was not accompanied by some members of Parliament from various country districts, a...

Dredging the Hawkesbury. AT the last meeting of the Windsc Municipal Council the matter t -dredging the river was agaî: brought up by Alderman Fitzpal 'rick, and received the unanimou support of all the aldermen present On the motion of Mr. Fitzpatricl it was decided to draw the atten tion of the Minister of Works fr our shamefully neglected river, 01 the occasion of his visit to the dis tricfc shortly. The step is a yer wise one, but what its ultimata result will be we cannot say, bu will, with our readers, anxiously «wait further developments.

The Recent Debate. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899
The Recent Debate. j TTIE recent debate" in Parliament of sending our troops to the Trans vaal, covered a wide field of con troversy. There was the imperi alist jingo sentiment, as voiced by Mr. Copeland, at the one extreme, while at the other was the academic independent views of Mr. Ashton. Between these two extre^^^rw» a variety of sentiments ;Wami th* exceptional speech showing any special knowledge of the subject ' under discussion. . The fact of the Boers having commenced the ww v before the matter cairne, up for dis cûssion put a very different aspect on the "question ; as Lord Bose berv said the time for British to ' disagree had gone past, a nation was at war against our common country, and the duty of all parties - was to close up the ranks, and look to the defence of their owtt s people. Our Parliament should ; have confined their attention yt hoity to the propriety or otherwise ot sending a detachment to tbe Trass- f vaal yet. Members took the oppcr- ' ¿ tunityto review ...
Road from Lower Portland to Wiseman's Ferry. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899
Road from Lower Portland to Wiseman's Ferry. TUE Lower Portland Progress Committee are to be congratulated for their enterprise in taking up the above question. It is a ques tion which. should be looked into immediately by the proper authori ties, forthe road will not only benefit directly all those who will use it, but it will indirectly benefit the en tire district, as any improvements which gives any pjirt of the district better facilities for business will help to raise the general average prosperity of the surrounding towns. Therefore thé residents of the Hawkesbury as a whole are in terested in the securing of any un dertaking such as this. Too long have the claims of this district been neglected, there are many things which are absolutely necessary to tito welfare of the Hawkesbury which have never been secured, while other districts have obtained, by persistent members, public works for which they find no use when constructed: Now that the new Ministry propose to spend an en...
Shaving As It Is Taught. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899
Shaving As It Is Taught. j " Not that gentleman, William-I'll at tend to him," said my regular barber after I had been lathered and the young assistant had stropped his razor. " You must keep to casuals for another week." " How do we barbers learn to shave ? Well, it stands to reason that our first customers would have a rough time of it if we didn't have some practice first. I'll tell you how I teach my apprentices ; but, of course, every master has his own way. " After lathering, the great lesson is to learn how to bold the razor with firm ness and lightness, and once that is known, it's half the battle won. " I first practise my lad on a glass soda water bottle. He has to lather it thickly, and with the razor only, get all the soap off and make it quite glossy again. That gives him practice in rounding a surface safely ; when he can do that, I make him lather and shave a broom-handle clean, without showing any cuts on the wood. " The next few lessons are devoted to shaving a hair...
To Foretell the Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899
To Foretell the Weather. M. Sauvogeon, a Spanish savant, has for several years past observed the phenomena occurring- in a cup of coffee after being sugared, and has arrived at the following conclusions, which he considers perfectly trustworthy : When the sugar dissolves quietly In the coffee without stirring, numberless little bubbles of air rise to the surface of the liquid. If these form a frothy mass in the mi&lt;d&lt;lla~af the cup. you may saXtJi- «Iv. upon fine weather for some time. On the other hand, if the froth collects in a ring around the margin of the vessel, heavy rain may be expected. Further, when the froth remains half way between the sides and the centre of the cup, the weather is sure to be change able ; but should the froth flow in spots and lumps towards the sides of the cup, we may look for gentle rain. M. Sauvogeon has regularly compared these phenomena with the indications of the barometer and thermometer, and did not publish his observations...
Washing Blankets. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899
Washing Blankets. In accordance with a request made by a Broughton correspondent, I here give a very simple yet effective method for washing blankets-an undertaking which is generally considered a very arduous and difficult one. I must, however, first suppose that the blankets are of the ordinary kind, and not of the special English make which demands a process known as " teasUng," in order to bring up that fleecy surface of which the house wife is so proud. This is a matter far too difficult for me to explain, and In such a case the blankets should be sent out to be cleaned. The simple washing is, however, a very easy task, if you have a large wringer and a good green. First shake your blankets thoroughly, and place them tn a tub, and cover with warm-not hot-water, to which you have added a strong solution of ammonia. Now press the blankets against the sides of the tub, and squeeze them in every \ part, but on no account rub them, or the material will become " felty." When you thin...
For Burns or Scalds. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899
FOP Barns OF Scalds. Apply some scraped raw potato im mediately ; or, if there be not time to scrape it, fasten on a slice with a linen bandage. This will give rapid relief I from pain and is quite harmless to use. j A mixture of equal parts of lime-water and linseed-oil should, however, be kept at hand in case of such an accident, and a little piece of medicated wool soaked I in this and applied to a burn or scald may Ibe left for hours undisturbed, giving much relief, and greatly assisting healing.
Oil Stoves and Gas Stoves. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899
Oil Stoves and Gas Stoves. Should: never be kept burning In a sleeping room, for they are burnt in the open air of the room, and, having no connection with a chimney flue, throw the poisonous carbonide oxide of com bustion into the air of the apartment, and make it unfit for respiration. Even an oil lamp is injurious in a sleeping room if left burning all night, but an oil stove is worse, because stoves generally feed more flame, consume more of the oxygen, and give off more poisonous gas.
THE WATER HYACINTH. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899
THE WATER HYACINTH -~» At the last meeting ot the Hawkesbury District Agricultural Associa tion, held on Friday, 13th October, the Secretary, Mr. C. 8. Guest, drew the attention of the meeting to an article on " The Water. Hyacinth," which appeared in tho October number of the " Agricultural Gazette," and expressed to the meeting his conviction that unless the destruction of this pest be taken in hand at once it will in a short time be beyond eradiction. The growth of this plant is at the present time encouraged by a large number of residents throughout our district, and it has now started to show itself in paris of our rivers, and henceforth it behoves those who have the welfare of the district at heart to destroy it whenever opportunity offers. To give our readers an idea of the rapid spread of this plant, the Government Printer, Mr. W. A. Guliick, has kindly lent us the illustrations which are the same as appeared in the "Agricultural Gazette." The following also appeared in the ...
