WISEMAN'S FERRY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

WISEMAN'S PERRI (From our own Correspondent.) Mr. and Mies Hymen, from Mel- bourne, are spending a week at the Ferry at Host Kelly's. The weather here * is simply lovely. Everything looks well, and farmers and orchardis<s,are jubilant. A number of tourists are taking advantage of the lovely weather, and staying at the Ferry, where there is plenty of fishing, prawn- ing, and shooting. Denny O'Brien says if the Afri- can Boers are no worse than the Wiseman's Ferry one, he would not mind undertaking a contract from the Home Government to fix some of them up. Messrs. J R. Brown, J.

CHAPTER III.—A DOUBTFUL EPISTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

CHAPTER ni.-A DOUBTFUL EPISTLE. < A VETTER was brought in upon a silver salver. The maid looked half apologetic as she handed it to her mistress, and Lady Wood thorp e picked it up rather gingerly, for it was suspiciously suggestive of having been caxried for some days in a pocket that had not been over clean. ' What is it, mother ?' said Olive looking up. 'It can't be-Yes, it is. From Cecil! Oh, mother!' 'She jumped up joyfully, every other thought forgotten. It was the first communication, except the cablegram, through General Clem- ents, for five months. It had seemed ages to the anxious watchers. Lady Woodthorpe opened it in trembling haste. It contained only one half sheet of paper, and that not too well written. She read it through carefully two or three times, and then handed it to Olive, who did the same. It evidently mystified and disappointed them both. Olive spoke first, * Mother, if I were you,' she said slowly, ' I don't think I should show that letter to Vio...

Many 1 imagine that because they have seen it once or twice, they need not ] go there again, unless they wish to see the same thing, this is a big mistake. The Cyclorama itself may not have changed, but the fine hall recently built specially for illusions is a perfect chameleon, and frail, fickle woman is not in it. The variety of bewildering illusions sprung upon the audience is a per- fect revelation, and now on top of these is added, an up-to-date j LUMIERE CINEMATOGRAPH. AS a shilling exhibition it is a remark- able one.

The Girl Who Writes. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

The Girl Who Writes. Girls who write are almost as plentiful *s girls who play the plano, but in one respect, the literary girl is preferable to the " musical " girl ; she doesn't make as much noise. The girl who writes usually starts about the age of fifteen, when her soul ia filled with longings for fame. She provides herself with a mysterious air, a silver-cased pencil, and a tiny note- book, which she carries in her pocket (the note-book -and pencil only, of course?) This nots-book has a curious trick of falling out at inopportune times, and when it does the fair owner grabs it op in blushing confusion. She scribbles in it at all time« aud season;. When an " ioea occurs lo her, she hastens to put it on paper, for f. ar of it escaping her memory, and being lost to posterity. Then she writes on foolscap, in her best «nd dearest hand, the title, .« Why Es- sington de Montmorency nsver married," and proceeds to fill -half-a-dozen sheets in telling why (usually it is because his beet...

The Gambling1 Evil. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 24 November 1899

The Gambling1 Evil. a. THE public conscience having been eased by the great show recently made by the police in raiding cer- tain "alleged" gambling premises betting will probably goon as here- J tofore. The only thing which is puzzling the -knowing ones is how on earth the police managed to discover that on these particular tenements odds could be laid and. tips backed by all and sundry ; the daily press witha wonderful lâ^bî enterprise did not head the informa- tion " clever capture by the police nor did they seem to think there was any necessity to give the exact number of the premises so that innocent people could have a look at what an " alleged " tote shop is really like. They would seo nothing surprising ; just the plain glass window, frosted, with the name up " Jack so-and-so, tobacconist," and a few boxes of cigars artistically ar- ranged to show that he really is a tobacconist. Nothing more. Is it not clear then that the police dis- played wonderful ingenuity in dis- cover...

LOWER PORTLAND. (From our own correspondent) Mr. E. Mitchell can boast of having the largest and earliest bed of rock-melonB on the river* We hear they look splendid, and have run about five feet. Messrs. Wes. Mitchell and Wm. Paull have two lovely patches of tomatoes. They are the best about the district, but will be a little later than usual, on account of so much wet weather. We cannot but admire the way I this local paper is improving by leaps and bounds. It must hold its own with any other paper ever ! minted in the Hawkesbury district. I [Thanks, old boy. -Ed.

SPORTING.. Our Windsor correspondent re- cently visited Trevallyn, the resi- dence of IKx. W. H. Dean. The grounds looked spick and span, and give promise of an abundant yield. He was first introduced to the blood horse Musketoon (a well-known turf performer, who has developed into a splendid-looking animal). He is travelling the district, and his services are being largely availed of. Next came a trio of handsome and aristocratic youngsters-year- lings, viz., a filly by Goldsbrough out of Legio, by Trenton, a filly by Goldsbrough from a Carbine mare, and the other a colt by Far Niente (imp.) from Galvina, by Trenton. In turn came the blood mare Gal- vina, by Trenton, heavy in foal to Haut Brion (imp.); a Carbine mare, with a filly foal at foot by Lochiel; a Gossoon (imp.) mare, I from Spice (own sister to Aberoorn), with a colt foal at foot by Lochiel.

Meeting of Windsor Residents A meeting^ convened by the Mayor of Windsor, Mr. J. J. Paine, for the pur- pose of raising subscriptions towards the above fund, was held in the School of Arts, on Tuesday night last. Previous to opening the meeting, the Mayor took the opportunity of explaining his reason for advertising it on that date, knowing as he did that the Debating Society had a contract with the School of Arts Committee to hold their meetings on Tuesday nights, but he was sure, al- though the arrangements had been made without consulting the Society, the Sresent meeting baa their sympathy, and e would ask them to combine it with their own meeting, and wonld be glad if someone would move a resolution that the Debating Society business be ad- journed.
