RIVERSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 25 July 1902

RIVERSTONE. - Mr. Charley Mortley has blossomed forth as an artist. We had a look at a sulky he painted and lined this week, and without doubt it was splen didly finished. Riverstone received a severe shock on Saturday last, when the death of Mr. Robert Richards was heard His open heartedness and charitable acts had endeared him to ail Riverstone folks, and one and all regret that a man who was so Univei sally popular has been taken from them. Eastern Creek from Mr. A. Pearce's residence to the meat work dam is quite dry, every part of it having been drained to keep up a supply of water for the works. There are hundreds of tons of wood lying at the bottom of the creek. Mr. C. Sturman has been confined to his bed for the last week, having met with an accident. Mr. J.

FORRESTER. Mr. E. Hobbs gare an enjoyable little dance the other night at his residence, and the party thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We have a new resident, who has " taken Mr. T. McGuire's orchard-Mr. Jones, a son of Mr. Robert Jones, of Forrester. -It is strange how the old natives come back! It speaks well for Forrester. There are many worse places in the world. Our old friend, Mr. Donald Robert son, had a rather naBty accident recently, which might hare had a tragic ending. He was returning home from Windsor when it occurred. The night was very dark, the track only narrow - and none too smooth when the horse got off the road and toppled over. The animal rolled down the embankment, a fall uf about fifteen feet. Mr. Robertson escaped unhurt, but the horse - a valuable one-did not escape so easily, but was seriously hurt, and has since died. The settlement is looking very dis mal and dry at present, owing to the drought, though the axes of the men can be beard ringing in the bush ...

Burglary at Rouse Hill. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 25 July 1902

Burglary at Rouse Hill. On Friday night or Saturday morn ing last, a daring burglary was per petrated at the post office-the store kept by Mr. G. Whitliog, of Rouse Hill. It appears that the burglar or burglars late on Friday night or early on Saturday morning, broke into the store (which is used also as the local post-office) by forcing asunder some of the weatherboards of the shop. They were successful in securing a few goods, but evidently did not make the haul they expected. They took away £3 worth of stamps, £4 of postal notes, £7 worth of tobacco, £2 worth of drapery, £5 worth of groceries, etc., and 2s in money. The rest of the cash they, luckily for Mr. Whitiing, missed. The police were informed of the robbery, and the black tracker from Parramatta went out, in company with Sergeant Nies and others of the force, to try and pick up the tracks of the.burglar or burglars. Up to the time of going to press we had not hanni rtt inv nrraai:

THE VINEYARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 25 July 1902

THE VINEYARDS. Water carting ia again ia full swing. The Mulgrave bush is getting terribly cut up by teams going to and from the spring. Both day and night people have to cart water, the supplies down this way being so low. It is just as well the gipsies have departed, as several accidents were narrowly averted through members of this travelling baud rushing out of the bush in front o& people s horses, soliciting alms and telling fortunes. It is to be hoped the matter of re pairing the.Mulgrave pump will be carried out as soon as possible. Whilst carting water on Friday afternoon, Mr. I. Sohoffel had a mis hap, which resulted in one of his horses getting crippled. He had a 400-gallon tank full of water on a dray drawn by three horses, and when going down the hill near Schofield's the horse in the shafts slipped down, and, before he could be released, got badly knocked about. The members of the local Progress Association are to be complimented for the diligent manner in which...

It is one of the most: brutal things we have ever heard of, and the person who would be guilty of such an act deserves the same treatment.
