WEBB'S CREEK DISPUTE. [To the Editor of the ADVOCATE.] [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 10 November 1899
WEBB'S CREEK DISPUTE. [To the Bditor of the ADVOCATE.] % SIB,-In your last issue there appeared a letter dealing with' the above. Kindly allow me a small space to correct a few errors In the first place, Mr. Cutler states that on arrival at the lady's dwelling they met a gentleman friend, and Mr. Clancy was obliged to take a back seat. This, I positively say is a falsehood ; the gentleman Butler refers to went to the dwelling with Clancy, and be (the gentleman) was otherwise engaged. Clancy, instead,, of taking a back seat, was placed foremost Buller was not present, so the information he gives comes from , hearsay. Secondly, Butler states that since this aflaflrClancy tias sought new pastures to geek consolation, after being so unfortu nate in the land of trouble. If Butler will.jog his memory a little he will recol lect that Clancy, sought new pastures long1 bef ~re this affair came off. Uf course it is not necessary for me to state whore the new ground lies. Well, I know who wan ...

JANGLING JARS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 10 November 1899
j JANGLING JARS. BY JEREMIAH JINGLES. In my weary wanderings through this mundane sphere it has been my some times happy, and at other times unhappy lot to come across a few sticks ; some of which, happily and unhappily, here come across mc. I stand in your presence this morning burdened with an armful of heretofore said sticks ; and it rests with yon whether they shall be my property only or ours conjointly. Besides sticks I have a harrow load of stones ; these are rolling stones, which have gathered no moss, but in their roll ing some wisdom has stuck to them, whiob, by a certain process known to printers, may be set up, and placed before the gaze of an admiring world, with such tact and brilliancy as to cause each par ticular stone to stand on end like cloves on the back of a Christmas ham. In addition to sticks and stones, I have caused to be laid down at your back gate a bag of bones ; old and dry bones, some of which a good workman may, turn into carved heads fit to adorn a ge...
