The Troops. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 17 November 1899

The Troops. FOB a week there was nothing talked about but the troops; ever since the war began, there has been nothing in the dailies but war and troops. Fortunately the Melbourne Cup excitement came along at a very opportune moment, turned the attention of the people, for one day at 4east into channels with which they were more familiar. Who is to say but that this tem ooary relaxation of the enormous strain saved the nation from going hopelessly mad? Therefore the evils of horseracing have mme good in them ; now, as iu the days of old, evil ia done, that good may come of it. After the rain had damped the enthusiasm of the 6rat send-off, by giving witnesses there of a jolly good ducking, excitement which lay dormant for a. day or two, once more began to rise to fever heat; the great demonstra tion in the Town Hall on the Thursday was worked up in a style that would do credit to a theatrical manager; the building was crammed as full as it ever was during the height of the federal ca...

And yet Thou leavest him To guide himself And stumble on In weakness and in pain ; To wrench his heart out in the fal!, And dost not eren lift him up, And salve his wound, Avenge his grief, I Or wipe sway his tears 1 Thou art his Father ; Or if not? Who? Who created him ? Gave him mind and soul, Sense of pain, and power of joy. Highest anticipations, Direst forebodings, v Acutest realisations Of the spiritual affinities 'Twixt him and Thee ? If Thou art his Father Why is he brow-beaten, Cast down, all but destroyed, Left to writhe and moanj" To wander about barefooted, Hungry,-thirsty, sick, and Bore ?

I hope to be at Windsor and Bichmond before the 1st proximo, so advise the young people of these towns to keep in-doors from the 37th to 29th instant, or they may find themselves in print, which may not be desirable. The writer is old, and carries no written re commendation of beauty worth speaking of, either in bis pocket or on his face, and his writings are photographs of him self, or nearly always. Hoping to write more extendedly later on, when the wife and children may be in the arms of Morpheus, and the world to them a pass ing dream, I beg to subscribe mvself the same old JEBEMIA.H.
