Decline off Sport. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 20 June 1902
Decline off Sport. It is often asked by those who knew the Hawkesbury in its palmy days, when looa! champions were as plenti ful a« 4lb darkies in a fish atory, ia every department of sport, champions endowed with no end of brawn, stamina, and grit, why the race has deteriorated and sport declined. 1'he athletes of the Hawkesbury nowadays, except in isolated instances, are a diminutive lot, and their efforts to keep their end up in the arena of sport are far below mediocrity even. All they seem able to successfully do now is to smoke cigarette, don attractive cadies of straw variety, and doff them to every damsel they encounter as tbey strut along the thoroughfare ana for ever revel in the delights of ping-pong and such like. However, asthe ancients were wont to observe, O témpora, O meres /-"Sportsman,"
Poultry. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 20 June 1902
Poultry. j It has been argued in some quarters that laying competitions do not attain their object, because they do not definitely settle the riyal merits of various laying breeds of fowls. It has never been claimed by those in terested in the compétition now in progress at the Hawkesbury College th.t, should Silver Wyandottes, for instance, head the list, they could be incontrovertibly proclaimed the best la) iag fowl. The competition has quite a different object. The aim of tbe promoters is to stimulate and encourage the laying branch of the poultry industry, and bring home to poultry-keepers the fact by devoting attention to this subject they get a rela tively greater return for their birds. Do shows of purebred poultry decide which is the best breed for the table, for laving, or for general utility pur poses? No, but by their direct and indirect influence, they improve the standard of the poultry of the whole community. Did the £50 which the Government expended in national priss...
