Service of Song. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

Service of Song. The service of song entitled " Wee Davie " held at the Windsor Presbyterian Church, on Friday night last, attracted a very large congregation, in fact, almost every inch of the seating accommodation of the church was taxed. Among the large congregation were visitors from all parts of the district, who had taken advantage of the glori- ous moonlight night, besides most of the leading townspeople. Mrs. White presided at the organ, and Mr. J. D. Smith gave the readings connecting the different parts of the service. The singing was splendid, and could it be less, when such voices as Mesdames Broome and Lindsay, Miss Young, Miss Wilson, Miss Gibson, Miss Hall, Miss Cad dell, and those of the Sunday school class were blended together. Mr. Hazelwood, late school-master at Wilberforce, and now of Gran- ville, conducted the singing during the service. Solo's were sung by Miss Wilson, Miss Young, Miss Gibson and Mr. Hazelwood, and duets by Mesdames Broome and Linsday, and Mis...

OBITUARY. _ It is with regret we have this week to announce the death of Mr. James Scott, which sad event took place at the local hospital at an early hour on Sunday morning last. The deceased entered the hospital some three weeks ago, suffering from that fell disease, typhoid fever, but it was thought by many that his case was hopeful, consequently the sad news of his death came as a blow to his many friends, and cast quite a gloom over the town. The deceased was a member of the Oddfellows' Lodge, and at an early hour Brothers F. and R. Stubb's, Thos. Lobb, and J. O'Brien, visited the brethren of the order informing them of the death, and requesting their attendance at thc funeral. Deceased has resided some ten months in Windsor, during which time lie bas worked in the tailoring establish- ment of Mr. W. C. Barker.

THE TRANSVAAL WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

THE TRANSVAAL WAE It was in the Zulu war that Buller won his V.O., saving the lives of three men when it seemed impossible that they could escape the Zulus, flushed with the terrible slaughter of Isandlwana, In the life of Sir George Colley, published" a month ago, that ill-fated General, but able military critic writing to his wife, spoke of the then Colonel Buller, who was an old pupil of his at the Staff Col- lege, as having " impressed men with his talent for war, and especially as a leader of irregular horse. Although stern in maintaining discipline, hit men worship him. He had on several occasions brought men out under fire and saved their lives; he is everywhere himself, leader of the charge, rear-guard in every retreat, and seems to combine an admir- able military eye and very cool judgment with wonderful courage and dash." The sortie made by General Sir G. S. i White'6 forces from Ladysmith on Novem- 1 ber 14 provoked a big engagement. The Boers were driven from their guns ...

OBITUARY. Sudden Death of Miss Rosie Ryan. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

OBITUARY. Sudden Death of Miss Rosie Ryan. It is our sad lot this -week to re- cord the death of Miss Rosie Ryan, a young lady who was much be- loved by a large circle of friends and acquaintances throughout the district. The cause of death was heart disease, and although it was known by her parents and others that she was suffering from heart trouble, through an opinion passed by Dr. Callaghan some time ago, still her untimely end came as a great blow to her people, and we, as well as a host of district ac- quaintances, sympathise with them in their sad bereavement. The de- ceased had contracted a severe cold, and her late employer, Mrs. R. W. Cobcroft, who was very much at- tached to her, recommended a few weeks holiday so as to have an op- portunity to recover. On the af- ternoon of her death she took a mixture which had been prescribed for a cold, after which she laid down. He sister, seeing her some time after, thought she was asleep, and not wishing to disturb her, al ? lowed ...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. Hr. M. E. Kirwan invites tenders j for road contracts in this issue. Mrs. W. Gosper, of Macquarie street, is Btill in a very low state of health, but improving daily. Owing to the low price given for turnips this season, the waste has been enormous in this district. Mr. 0. M. Davis has started a property agency, at which a good thing should be made in the dis- trict. The delay in effecting telephonic ! communication with Sydney is giv- ing rise to a deal of complaint locally. Playing with New South Wales against Queensland on Monday j last, Les Pye scored 61 runs by j good cricket. Haymaking has been going on briskly during the week, and every- where the crops are wonderfully heavy and good. Owing to the serious illness of Mr. L. A. Simpson, he was unable to make his usual weekly trip ¡to Windsor on Saturday last. Mrs. A. Grimwood has been laid up during the week with an attack of influenza, and is at present un- der the care of Dr. Callaghan. In some parts of the...

AGNES BANES (From our own correspondent.) Many of the farmers around here are digging potatoes for their own use. In nearly every case the tubers are fine specimens. The melon and pumpkin crops around here are coming on splen- didly since the recent wet weather, Mr. W. Pearce having a crop which is classed as "one of the best." Mr. Tom Pearce has not yet dis- posed of his speedy mare ' Olivette.'

Â den of these destructive brutes exists in some of the Kurrajong gullies, and a party of shooters are arranging for a raid on the haunt.
