The Hawkesbury Herald. WINDSOR, FRIDAY, JULY ll, 1902. THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 11 July 1902
?ffi^e Pafofehrg Ptraft. WINDSOR, FRIDAY, JULY ll, 1902. THE WEATHER. It is said that in a certain district of this State-a district famous foi sts chronic visitation of drought ;here is a Btrict, unwritten law ;hat, when things are bad. the topic 3f the weather must not be men :ioned ; that the uninitiated, unwary stranger, on observing " It is very Iry!" or "Rain's badly needed!" «? such like, is immediately con "ronted with a caution not to repeat :he remark, unless he wish to bc mocked down ! This law. evidently, ías not yet extended to the Hawkes rary, for of late the topic has been weather, weather, weather. No two men could meet on the road without saying something about it. A sport ing man would offer odds on, every time. Were our district addicted to the dreadful drought, it would pro bably be advisable to follow the example alluded to, on the plea that what cannot be cured must be en dured, the best way to endure1 troubles being to try and forget them; but the Hawkesbury i...
SOCIAL. Mercantile Ball at Richmond [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 11 July 1902
¡iurontlh) ftallatltloliilLd The Mercantile hall at Richmond ' used to be an annual affair. For fire consecutive years it was kept going ; but for the last two years dropped ont, somehow. However, on Friday night it was revived once mora. And if the result be any criterion-well, the sociable citizens of Richmond ought to keep it going next season, and retain it always ae one of the events of the year. It was the best ball our scribe ever attended at Richmond. That assertion is in disputable, for it was his first ball there. However, one could hardly have wished to spend a more enjoy able evening. Nice people J Divine music ! Excellent dancers 1 Every thing was Al. It was an invitation ball ; and about fifty responded. Amongst the happy gathering were the Mem ber for the district (Mr. Brinsley Hall) and the Mayor and Mayoress of Richmond (Mr. and Mrs. E. Campbell). The hali (School of Arts) was brilliantly decorated with nags, bannerets, palms, lanterns, &c. This, we were tol...
Mrs. Frances Bevitt. A BELOVED WINDSOR NATIVE. A SORROWFUL DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 11 July 1902
i Mrs. Frances Beiritt. A BELOVED WINDSOR NATIVE. A 80BBOWFÜL DEÀTH. On Monday morning last the shock ing news spread around town that Mrs. Frances Bevitt, of Macquarie Street, had dropped dead whilst attending to laundry work at the Commercial Bank, Windèor. The news was soon found to be too true, for the unfortunate woman had been cut off without a moment's notice, and in apparently the best of health. It appears Mrs. Bevitt had breakfasted with her daughter-who is employed at the Bank-and Miss Ada Cook, house maid at the Bank, and went out to resume work in the wash-house. This was at about a quarter to 8, and at half-past 8, Mis9 Cook went into the wash-house to get some hot water, and found Mrs. Bevitt 4ying on the floor. She at once ran for assistance, and Or. Callaghan was sent for. In the meantime Mr. B. A. Pye arrived on the scene, and endeavoured to re store animation, but it was soon found life was extinct. Dr Callaghan arrived a few minutes later, and, on exam ination, f...

Mr. James Bordley Brown. A PROMINENT TOWNSMAN AND CIVIL SERVANT. W.M. OF THE -RICHARD COLE! LODGE. FOUND DEADTN HIS OFFICE. Following the news of Mrs. Bevitt's . death on Monday morning came the : appalling announcement on Tuesday morning that Mr. James Bordley Brown, J.P., of Terrace Street, Wind sor, had been found dead in his office. It was, alas, too true, for the portal of exit from "things of this life," which has been opened very frequently of late to residents of this district, had been opened to the worthy townsman. People could not realise it, nor do they even now. The sad death took place about a quarter to eight on Tuesday morning, the deceased a few minutes before being apparently in the best of health. It appears deceased had gone to his office-a detached building at his residence-to do some writing, and was not there long when his daughter, MÍBS Marjorie Brown, went over to dust the office out, and found him lying on the floor, apparently in a faint. Assistance was at...

A Trip to flew Zealand. THE WONDERLAND OF AUS TRALASIA.. [By Eev. S. G. Fielding, author of "The Southern Light," "Down to the Sea in Ships," etc.] I For the " Herald." * I From the Inferno Paddy led us up a hillside until we reached the hot waterfalls, where a liot stream, issuing from the mountain side, leaps and dashes in a series of bril liant cascades over a rocky steep. I ventured to put my hand in the water ; it was hot, though not un pleasantly so, probably in conse quence of its exposure to the cool air. Further on we visited another formidable mud volcano, and saw the great Black Lake, an extensive area of boiling mud and water, where a number of mud geysers are constantly bursting through the glittering surface of the lake, tossitíg-j their black slime to a height of from four toÉBBL_JThe»' W« climbed ""ia lenee we had a magnificent view of Lake Rotorua on the left and Lake Rotoiti on the right. After resting for a while, Paddy showed us over the great sulphur valley. The...
SYDNEY MARKETS. Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 11 July 1902
SYDNEY MARKETS. Thursday. Although the continued wet weather serves to restrict the volume of busi ness transacted in the produce markets, most forage lines had fair attention to-day. The principal feature of tbe morning's business was a firmer tone in maize, and a falling off in relue of imported chaff and lucerne bay. The maize market again seem« inclined .to harden. /Agents lidf^er lab the market may he expected to recede to its former level. In order tolnäuce purchasers to operate agents were compelled to further reduce quotations for lucerne hay. Ample supplies of potatoes are still available. Prices this morning were inclined to weaken, £5 5s being paid for primest samples. Eggs are scarce and rather dull of sale. Wholesale quotations were :-Bran 1/4, pollard 1/4, maize 4/9, barley 4/, chaff £3 15/ to £6 15/, oats 3/ to 6/5, oaten hay £6 10/, straw £2 15/ to £8 10/, lucerne £7 15/to £8 10/, peas 4/8 to 7/, butter 1/5, potatoes £5 to £5 5/, turnips £4 10/, onions £8 IO/, honey ...

REMARKABLE CIRCULATION OF A WINDSOR SERMON. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 11 July 1902
REMARKABLE CIRCULATION OF A WINDSOR SERMON. It will interest local readers to learn that the sermon preaohed by Rev. S. G. Fielding on " Commonwealth Sun day" on the subject of the destiny of the British nation has been accorded a most unexpected and remarkable circulation. In the December num ber of the " Banner of Izrael" (pub lished in London), with a circulation of many thousands throughout the world, the sermon was re-printed in full, with a critical commentary ; and we also find that the sermon has ap peared in South Africa, having been quoted by the prominent congrega tional minister, tfev. W. H. Aspden, of Durban, in his address on a similar subject, and reported and referred to in the " Natal Mercury" of 4th February last. Mr. Fielding has not the slightest idea how the sermon got out of Australia. It was circulated here in pamphlet form.

C. Johnson, "cannot be adequately described except by the poet's pen or the painter's brush." He thinks the scenery along Colo's verdant banks is not far. behind any in the world, and he has travelled over a good part of this mundane sphere too. The scenic beauty of this noble tributary of the " Australian Ehine " is invariably commented upon by visitors hereto. The sightly clus ters of water-gums, river oaks, and other foliage which line its banks, intermixed with ferns, etc., of various shapes, shades, an...
