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

CORNWALLIS. (From oar own correspondent). The residents of Cornwallis axe complaining about having no school in their locality, and intend making a move to try and induce the De partment to either erect , one on a suitable site, or otherwise open the Ïresent building near Mr. Albert 'carson's residence. Mr. John Upton offered to make the Depart ment a present of a piece of land on his farm if they would build a school, but nothing has since been heard of the matter. The erection of a school at this site would be convenient to a goad many, and we understand that twenty child ren can be guaranteed to attend. The building near Mr. Pearson's, which has been closed for a* long time is lying idle, and if the De partment do not intend to open it, then we say, by all means remove it to where the people want it, and also to where the children are. At the present time some of the child ren have to walk three and four miles to school, which is most in jurious during the present hot weather, an...

The Windsor Rainfall for November, 1899. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899

The Windsor Rainfall for No- vember, 1899. The rainfall for November, 1809, at this Observatory amounts to 2. 920 inches, which is 6. 405 inch ABOVE the mean for the month, as derived from 37 years' observations. The greatest and least falls for November since 1862 are 6. 403 inches in 1870 and 0. 029 inch in 1867 respectively. The total rainfall for the past eleven months is 26.823 inches, whereas the mean for that period as de-   duced from the 37 years' observations is 30. 519 inches. It will therefore be seen that the rainfall for the elapsed portion of the current year is considerably below the mean. JOHN TEBBUTT. 2nd December, 1899.

CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 15 December 1899

CONCERT. A concert was given by the Ïupils of the Bichmond Superior 'ublic School, in the School of Arts hali, on Friday night last, which was a success from every point of view. The hall waB comfortably filled, and everything passed off smoothly, there being no delay between the items. The limelight was well manipulated, new cellu loid media being used for colors, and some lovely shades were pro duced. The pupils were dressed uniformly in colors for displays, with appropriate emblems. The dumb-bell display by the infant girls was very effective, and the choruses by the infant pupils, en titled " The Seasons," received loud applause. The wand drill was an exceedingly pretty item, but the song by the infant pupils, entitled " The Dirty Boy," was the gem of the evening. The Misses Elsie Chivera and Bertha Illingworth played a pianoforte duet in good style, and the Misses Muriel Price and Daisy Allen sang the splendid duet, entitled "Sunshine {ifter Bain."

Newspaper Postage. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 15 December 1899

Newspaper Postage. THE junior morning daily, in a re cent leading article, had a good deal to say in favor of free postage on newspapers. The argument about educating the people is brought up as a justification of the present system, but they had not the hardihood to attempt to justify the practice actually in vogue in, this colony, of the Government run ning what are virtually special trains in order to convey Sydney papers into the country at the earliest possible moment. There are trains which leave Redfern a£ about 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning', which start at that unearthly hour for no other .reason than that they are " paperrtrains" ; it is absurd lo ' suppose that this hour is the most convenient time, otherwise, for snell trains,to start ; as a matter of fact, it would be hard to select a more inconvenient time, and these trains are supposed to carry passengers too, though it is very seldom they are patronised from the stark There are many newspaper men ia the House, and it...

Contemptible Journalism. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 15 December 1899

Contemptible Journalism. THE Daily Telegraph's recent attack on the Eeid finances is about the most pitable article that journal ever published. It is not now a question whether these finances are right or wrong, but the point is that for five years that powerful journal supported every action of the Heid Government, backed up their financial proposals, and'ex- ¡ tolled their many virtues from the housetops. Then Federation came along, Mr. Seid and the Telegraph got at cross purposes ; the second referendum was effected, and in about August thie year, the famous Auditor-General'^ report was pub lished. The telegraph has on its staff a man of great financial ability, but when all the disputing was rife about the big deficit supposed to be revealed by that report, the journal and its expert financier; "maintained an undignified silence. That silence was interpreted to mean that they considered Mr. Heid in the right, but they did not like to say so, as at the îïnie they were anxious to...

A Ghost's Photograph. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 15 December 1899

I A Ghost's Photograph. MOST people think that a photo graph is true in every particular, ¡ that like the famous George Wash- ! ington it cannot be. The camera certainly, like a young and innocent child, has a predisposition to truth, but it can assuredly be made to lie. The famous Mrs. Mellon, the "spook" manufacturer, used to triumphantly exhibit a photograph of "Cissy" as absolute proof to infidels of the truth of her assertions. Yet a ghost can be manufactured on a photo^rery simply, the method is to take on tbc plate that has already been used to photograph the room, the figure in a white sheet which is to represent the ghost ; the exposure must be instantaneous only, time must not be given for the camera to get a true impression of the object ; the result is the faintest shadow of white, perfect in outline, through which can be seen the table or the chair on the other side. Anyone who has not seen a ghost should endeavor to see a photo of one, it will give a very fair idea of ...
