Speeches on the Park. LIMITED TO FIVE MINUTES EACH. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 27 June 1902
Speeches on the Park. LIMITED TO FIVE MINUTES EACH. The procession over, a lorry was drawn up close to the grandstand; and from this lorry speeches were delivered. Added to the difficulty of making themselves audible in the open air, there was a humdrum of ! noise and applause from the exuberant and enthusiastic throng ; and it was with difficulty that a reporter could catch the remarks. The Mayor of Bichmond opened. He said they had gathered there to celebrate peace, after a long and pro tracted struggle. He was certain all would join with him in felicitating the consummation so long looked for (applause). The darkest days of the war were the brightest, as after events proved, for they brought together every eon of Great Britain who could carry anns (applause). The mother State had sent as many troops as any of them (applause) ; and the first Colonial troops to go to the assistance of Great Britain were the Lancers (prolonged applause). The Hawkes bury had been well to the fore ; a...
The Decorations. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 27 June 1902
The Decorations. The joy of Richmond that peace again dwelt in the Empire-that an honourable road had been opened for j our late foes to enter into fellow citizenship-and that our Hawkesbury men who did well their part to make Australian soldiers famous were ra» turned to their homes-found demon strative expression in the decorations of the town. Bichmond had long waited in readi ness to mark the moment. Funds had been collected for the purpose a year or more ago. Committees were already formed, and an elaborate programme prepared, so that on the welcome announcement of peace the long dormant organisation was im mediately stirred to activity, and car ried out its functions with such excellent order and precision that, as if by wand, there was magic transfor (nation! " Looking from the higher entrance to the town the " tout ensemble" was most effective. The cross lines of flags from this perspective view gave the main street the appearance of a gaily covered way. But it was not witho...

Refreshments. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 27 June 1902
Refreshments. When the Demonstration Commit tee decided not to treat the children to refreshments, concluding, as they did, that the undertaking would he too big altogether to cairy out properly, some of the big-hearted daddies on the committee, not to be daunted from their desires to look after the little ones, and give them something in the fehape of a good feed as an additional token by which the auspicious occa sion would be impressed on their memories, set to work and collected special subscriptions, which aggre gated no less than £15, of which amount Mr. Brinsley Hell, M.P., generously contributed a thud. And to eeo the happy youngsters squatting around the festive spread, in picnic ft sh ion - well, the subscribers felt they'd have stood double the amount I rather than have seen the item deleted I from the programme. The ladies of the district heartily co-operated, both in preparing for the luncheon and in attending to the children. In this they were well assisted by the cler...

The U.S. Naval Hospital is here, also the foreign cemetery, which up to the present time has Ü,ÜÜÜ persons buried in it. Returning to tiffin, we undertook a walk round the " New Road" - one of the comforts and luxuries of the foreign residents. The road is six miles in length, winding through a varied undulating and pretty country. The view from the hill overlooking Mississippi Bay, which this road skirts, was particu larly attractive. We next moved oil; to the native quarter, which is divi ded by a fine collection of ornamen tal trees and flowering shrubs peculiar to Japan, and are placed on both sides of the wide avenue. We found a walk through this quarter very interesting-we found objects at every corner to attract our atten tion. The . shops are in the main street (Honcho Dori), and contain a ~:..la»ge;: guiltily - of lacquered ware,* Í bronzes, porcelain and curios. The i silk shops ...

Ping-Pong. The ping-pong tournament con ducted in the Richmond School of Arts was contested for by 31 aspi rants for championship honors, and concluded on Thursday evening. There were good attendances each evening, and the various pairs pro vided some mild excitement for the fight-seers, especially as the contes tants were weeded out (blown out rather), and the semi-final and final were productive of good sport. The winner proved to be Mr. Cuthbert Potts, of the H. A. College, who was favorite from the beginning of the tourney, Mr. E. Woodhill securing second honors.
Poultry. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 27 June 1902
Poultry. The laying compétition is having a wider and more immediate influence than the promoters anticipated. The object of the competition is to stimu late endeavors to improve the laying qualities of fowls, and to bring homo to poultry-keepers the fact that their returns can be materially increased by devoting attention to this matter. We hear of dozens of breeders iu both the suburbs and the country who are running competitions at home, with the object of comparing their result with those obtained at the Hawkes bury Agricultural College, and also of noting the results from dilf»rent breeds and individual hens. The practical value of such private experiments, and the application of deductions made to subsequent breeding, cannot be over estimated. One breeder who has a noted laying strain remarked the other day : "lt set me thinking, and I set about testing some of my best hens. I thought that th*y were all great layers. Well, I find that while some have laid niAgniftceiitly, othe...
RICHMOND. A DASTARDLY ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 27 June 1902
One of thé most dastardly and un gentlemanly outrages committed in the oietnct for a long time, was the conduct of some ghoul or ghouls at the clo»e of the H. -A College dance last week. We understand that they went into the Principal'* private house, stole his ale and cigare, poured beer into the whisky decanters, and spilt dregs all over his new dining-room carpet, whilethe Principal was bidding farewell to his guests. Such conduct can only be punished by social ostracism. We are informed that the names of the delinquents are known, and for the honor of the district they should be publit-hed, so that future hosts may be spared the honible infliction that was visited on j the generous, genial Principal.
