The Art Gallery. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899

The Art Gallery. THE trustees of the gallery have decided to spend something like £20,000 in completing and decor ating the exterior of the building. This is a tall amount but nothing compared with the amount al ready spent on art in this colony already, to say nothing of the thousands and tens of thousands that are spent in other colonies and countries on the same object. Usage justifies this expenditure, and therefore would the erection be justifiable of Mr. O'Sullivan's glorious conception "Australia facing the Dawn?" This idea has been ridiculed in many quar ters, but that is not because the conception is faulty, it is because some people cannot appreciate a good thing when they see it. The truth is, the statue would be one of the sights of the world, but in these prosaic days of economy we cannot overlook the fact that to do the thing properly would cost something approaching £30,000.

FARM AND DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899

FARM AND DAIRY. On coming along past liower Fortland last week, in a spot where no one would expect to find veget ables, the writer ran across a splen did experimental plot belonging to Slr. W. Newall. The garden is an. excellent demonstration of what can be done bj perseverance and proper attention to the land. Mr. Newall has been experimenting with man ures and irrigation and has been most successful in forming one of the best gardens we have seen on the river. Whilst the writer was present, a new variety of potatoes were dug, the name of which we forget, but whch are, however, of excellent quality, being very large and light in colour. We understand Slr. Newall intends keeping the crop for seed, and the fact of them being ripe two weëké before the Early Bose, should be sufficient to recommend them to farmers on the river, who, we feel sure, could pro cure some of the.seed on application to Mr. Newall. Other ^varieties of potatoes of excellent quality are also to be seen on the pl...

Flowery Imaginings. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899

Flowery, Imaginings. THU Hon. Ted O'Sullivan in a re cent speeech at Goulburn drew a beautiful picture of the wonders which were to be wrought in their time. Boads and railways were a mere flea-bite, not only was every town in the colony to have railway communication, a bridge over its river, and new public buildings galore, but next session the Govern ment were going to pass " a com prehensive scheme of water con servation and irrigation " (where have we heard that phrase before). That this " comprehensive scheme " would cost some millions of money was a fact that the Minister for Works treated with a sublime con tempt, but the matter was not a cabinet promise as it turned out ; the good-natured easy going people of Goulburn are privileged to go to sleep that night, dream of compre hensive schemes, see beautiful visions of'ever-running rivers, ever verdant pastures, ever ripening crops i there were to be no more droughts, no more low prices, no more crop failures, all was to be bri...

The Blessings of Spirits. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899

The Blessings of Spirits. A OOBEESPONDENT Óf OD0 of the Dailies quotes extensively from the report of some eminent foreign Scientists, who points out the value of spirits as a cure for various seri ous diseases. Some of the less tem perate of our readers will regret to hear that the application is not to be internally, via the neck, but ex ternally, per medium of the old familiar wet bandage. Startling cures are announced, quite equal to the most wonderful patent medicine, cancer, consumption and such-like hitherto uncurable diseases have been got under by this old friend or bitter enemy-as the case may be. There is another matter which will not be pleasing to the untem perate invalid, for it cannot be sup posed that fine old Scotch will cure a man by outward application of a complaint which has grown upon him, notwithstanding a liberal sup ply of the alleged remedy internally. If it acts beneficially at all it will be probably in the case of men to whose system spirituous liquors a...

Australia Lagging Behind. THE Rey. Dr. Bevan is an excep tionally sensible man when talking on religious matters, but like most people when they leave their trade and try another, they make mistakes. The rev. gentleman in a recent lecture compared Austra lia with the system, their telegraph arrangements were perfect, nearly every hotel (how did he come, to know) had a telegraph office ; and other business arrangements equally complete. But the worthy divine who has recently returned thence, wanted to put the difference down to the difference between private enterprise and Government control; What"about population?

EBENEZER. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899

EBENEZER. (From our own correspondent.) Mrs. John Brown has been laid up with a serious attack of influenza during the past week or two. Mrs. Sanders, daughter of Mr. John Brown, sailed for Fiji last week, iu order to join her husband who is managing a sugar plantation at that place. Quite a new settlement is spring ing up along the road to Ebenezer, and in a few years instead of dense forest, one will find a string of com fortable little homesteads and orchards. During the past few years several now houses bave been erected, including those of Mr. E. Low aud Mr. A. G.. Brown, in each of which a nice young orchard is coming on. Tho latter has about 5 acres cleared, and planted with citrus fruit, and considering the trees were only put out in the spring, they look splendid, and are a guarantee that the soil is adapted for citrus fruits. The local Public School is at the present time in a deplorable state, and to say the least of it, is a dis grace to -the Department ; the white ants ...

FROM OUR EXCHANGES ? ' Switzerland enjoys the unenvi able distinction of having a larger percentage of lunatics than in any other country. The Government telegraph ser vice of Great Britian transmits, it is said, on the average 1,538,270 words a day to newspapers alone. Coffins in Russia are never covered with black. If the deceased is a child, pink is used ; if a woman, crimson ; though for a widow they use brown. Bed deer are becoming such a nuisance in some parts of the Wair arapa district (N.Z) that the Ac climatisation Society have decided, for a licence fee of £1, to allow stalkers to secure as many bead as they like. It is stated that last year on one station alone no fewer than 500 deer were shot. In the middle of 1899 the estimated population of Australasia was just over 4£ millions. New South Wales has a population of 1,346,000. The total gain of popu lation in Australasia since 1890 is 691,825, of which nearly one-third ie credited to New South Wales. Perth has grown from...
