RICHMOND BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
RICHMOND BRIDGE. Mr. B. Hall, M.L.A., has been in- formed by the Minister for Works that £300 has been authorised for the completion of necessary and urgent repairs to the bridge over the Hawkesbury River at Richmond. The general impression is that the idea of building a new bridge has been abandoned, and that the pre- sent structure is to be patched up. It is a wrong impression altogether, as the money to be expended is to ensure the safety of the present bridge until the new one is built.
LEET'S VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
LEETS VALE, The finny tribe are very wary of late, and local anglers have given up bothering after them. The steamers of both companies have been trying the patience of river fofks lately. It is to be hoppri tltpv will soon nm-"! ? iv-.. The weather has beeu vtry threat- ening of late, but seems to have Bet tied without much rain, which is badly wanted to raise the grain and vege- table crops. The work of carrying on the forma- tion of the road .'rom tue post offic to Mr. J. Liddy's farm has been Ht ipped. We hope to see it started again wu, as it is a very necessary work. Several cases of oranges have nl ready beeu sent away from tlw tiver, and, on-idfriug the ¡ja . reason ¡uni the effects of hailstorms, are a VHry fair sample Mr. Al. J.

PITTSTOWN. POLICE PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
mm*, H - POIffOE PEOTEOTIÖN. À policeman from Windsor visite here every week. To the writer's mind, Pitt Town is equally as impor- tant as Wilberforce, and should have a policeman stationed here. Not so much for the preservation of order among the residents, as to prevent the I>erpetration of crime by suspicious ooking tramps, who pass through here en route to Newcastle and other northern, towns. Then again, Pitt Town doesn't want to be always kept in the background, and the appoint- ment of a police officer would add to the^ significance of the'township. So long as we are content to sit down, we cannot expect to advance with the fast flying time. Progress seems to have been arrested long. ago, and the old town is sitting down watching the march of modern improvements in sleepy, philosophic quiet. At St. James' Church of England on Sunday evening last:the Rev. W. S: Newton, M.A., conducted a me- morial service in connection with the death of Miss Dora May Paull. The church was dr...
WILBERFORCE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
WILBERFORCE. Mrs. J. J. Stephens and Miss Ada Buttsworth have been spending a few days here. Several of our local young men have volunteered for. service ia South Africa, much to the regret of their parents and friends. Last week a number ot Mrs. Lock- hart's friends gave her a surprise party. A very pleasant evening was spent in dancing, singing, &c, and all who participated enjoyed them- selves thoroughly. The most successful cricket club in the district this year was Wilberforce ; in fact this seems to have been the only club to stick to the game this year. The record for the season is an unbeaten one. Mr. Bert Hall, one of the most promising batsmen in the district, topped the batting average, and the veteran wilkry-wielder, Mr.
SACKVILLE REACH. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
SACKVILLE REACH. The many friends of Mrs. Joseph Stubbs will regret to hear that ste has been very ill this week, and is at present under the care of Dr. Gibson, It is pleasing to note that a bell is at last to be erected at the Sackville Ferry. It has been a long-felt want to the travelling public generally for many years. Mr. Thomas Turnbull has let his fine orchard property and residence to Mr. Douglas, of Lower Hawkesbury, and intends taking up his-residence with his family near the city. It is to be regretted that such a good family as the Turnbulls are leaving us, and j it is only after they are gone that we I will miss them. The members of the family, sons and daughters alike, are known far and wide on the Hawkes bury, and beloved by all. In church matters they always took a leading 1 part, and in every movement of bene- fit to the district in which they resided they always did their share of organ- ¡ ising, &c. Mr. and Mrs. Turnbull aud family carry with them the bes...
EBENEZER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
EBENEZER. When the new echool is erected the Progress Association intend asking for permission for the use of the building for holding meetings. Mr. L. Pickup is making great headway with the erection of the new school. The building will be an orna- ment to the locality, and the members of the local Progress Association are deserving of every credit for the move they made in getting the Department to erect the building of brick instead of wood. At the last meeting of the Association, the matter of celebrating the opening was discussed and de- ferred. A public meeting of the residents was held at Mr. J. Jone's residence on Friday evimipg last, for the purpose :I^&lt;ÓÜM»' WM large. %^l¿v ö, *kl Boorning iras appointed secretary to the movement, and all present formed themselves into a committee to deoide and carry out all details. The 24th May was mentioned as the day on which the celebration will take place, but it was not definitely decided.
MARSDEN PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
1 MARSDEN PARK. Mr. Postal Inspector Brewer, and Mr. School Inspector Blumer, were in the district last week. Mr. and Mrs. A R. Jarret; of Leichhardt, are now residing at their country residence here for an indefinite period. Our worthy friend, Mr. Trautwein, of Persimmons Grove, secured 1st and 2nd prizes for cooking apples at the last Sydney Show We have had an epidemic of whoop- ing cough in this locality oi ¿ute, which, however, is gradually dying out. A case of diphtheria, I regret to state is reported. Owing to the high price of horse feed and the low state of the wood - market, many local folk intend stop- ping further consignments and waiting for an improvement. A Salvation Army service was con- ducted by Ensign Good, of Windsor, in the local Presbyterian Church on Monday evening last. It ie pleasing to report the attendance «UH good. The rainfall from the 1st January to date, registered at the local meteor- ological station, is stated to be only 143 points. We have had no r...
ROUSE HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
ROUSE HILL. The cricket season here can now be said to hare closed, and the local boys celebrated its exit on Friday evening last with a concert, which passed off successfully. Next year the club pro- mises to be a very strong one. Mr. George Terry gained quite an ovation last week at the Paddington Town-hall, when he sang that grand old hunting song uf Mattei's, " The Chase." It is an appropriate selection for an ardent " sport " like Mr. Terry, and he does credit to it. The many friends of First-class Constable JJalfour, both near and far, will be pleaded to hear that he is re- covering Irow hie recent painful acci- dent, ile is new able to get about slowly, but it will be a long time before he is properly right. Mr. Whilling. of the Uouse Hill stores, has been appointed agent for the "Hawkesbury Herald," and will receive subscription!1; orders for adver i tisements and printing, and items of incumbent, is getting ^uite «ettled down to Jue duties in this widely settled parish.

THE Mustery of Limeburner's Greek. FOUNDED ON FACT. [For the "Herald."] [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
FOUNDED ON FACT. [For the " Herald."! ' John Henry Rogers dead ! My God I Can it be Jack Rogers, of Limeburner's Creek ? Yes, it must be he.' The speaker was a comparatively young man, not altogether a stranger to the hotel (in a quiet suburb of the city) in which he now sat. Nobody knew much of him ; nobody even cared. He seldom 6poke, and when he did he gave the impression of being a man who was suffering from some eccentricity of disposition, con- stantly twiching nervously, and, with quick glances, betraying some evi- dent anxiety. After delivering himself of the foregoing somewhat remarkable ut- terance his head dropped and was buried in his hands as they rested on the table. Several others were at the time standing at the bar, and they plainly saw that it was not the muddied ravings of intoxication. At the feet of the speaker lay the latest edition of the evening paper. One of the by-standers came near to him, and, touching him on the shoulder, asked sympathetically what was a...

DISTRICT NEWS. (Per our [?]porie[?] and correspondents.) WISEMAN'S FERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
* ir«r©urwpne(í ««a correiponöecis.) ' .' . WISEMAN'S FERRY. The unanimous verdict of all those who ever visited this locality, and had an observant eye to the beauties of Nature, must be that few places in the State of New South Wales are superior, or even equal, to Wiseman's Ferry, with its mountains and rivers, its valltye and flats, its flowers and shrubs, and last, Lut. not least, its quietness and repose, so that- whether rightly or not-it received the name " Sleepy Hollow." No greater con- trast can there be found between the bustling, exciting life of the great metropolis, where everything seems to go a&lt; railway spee^, with scarcely sufficient time to live, and this portion of the State, where " peace," as a rule, reigueth supreme ! The blowing of the whistles of passenger "cargo" and dealing boats at times breaks the silence, and witnesses to an activity which was unknown here 25 years ago, but the=e Bounds carry in their train no disturbing elements ; the re- si...

PROFESSOR WOOD AGAIN! [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 May 1902
PROFESSOR WOOD AGAIN ! It ¡s the province of historians, says a cynical writer, to distort history. If this be aa, then is the gentleman who fills the chair of History at our Sydney University but following the bias that distinguishes his tribe. But if the duty of historians be-as we feel sure it should be-to give a calm and unimpassioned narrative of this world's happenings, it seems to us that Professor Wood, by his latest achievement, has exhibited a distinct unsuitability-to put it mildly-for his office. His actions, in this tespect, will probably form the subject of an enquiry by the Senate of the Uni- versity, and, therefore, we need not dwell upon it. But with his actual statements, coming as they do from him in his official capacity, and quot- able therefore as the emanations of one having authority, we have good right and every justification to deal. The Professor, then, has written an article on the Boer war to the "Man- chester Guardian," an English, but, presumably, pro-...

Had I tumbled into Boer hands, I'd have gone on wbiltt 1 had a cartridge left, and then used the butt, and then have been WIPED OUT.
