Mr. John Tebbutt, F.R.A.S. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 22 December 1899
Mr. John Tebbutt, F.R.A.S. Mr. JOHN TEBBUTT, F.R.A.S.. of Windsor, the well-known Australian astronomer, is the grandson of a very old colonist. His grandfather, John Tebbutt, emigrated to the colony in the year 1801, bringing with him his wife and two sons (Thomas and John), and an only daughter. Soon after their arrival in the colony the family &nbsp; &nbsp; gave themselves up to farming pur- suits in the Hawkesbury district, but this occupation proving rather unsuc- cessful they opened a general store in Windsor, which rapidly became &nbsp; the most important in the district. John, the youngest of the two bro- thers, married, and the fruit of this union was the birth, in Windsor, on the 25th May. 1834, of the subject of our sketch. The business was closed about the year 1842, and the father then purchased the Peninsula estate, I at the eastern extremity of the town, built thereon a residence, and devoted himself to agricultural pursuits. The son was educat...

Volunteering Medicos. THE announcement that two of Sydney's leading doctors have volunteered for professional service in the Transvaal presents to the public, the other side of the picture. While war fever stricken soldiers are offering their services to put huies through the enemy, the doc tors are prepared to patch up those holes with all promptitude. Why, therefore, put the holes through ? might well be asked.

It is our painful duty to record the sad and untimely death of Mrs. Annie Caldecott, wife of Mr. Philip Oaldecott, of Sydney, and daughter of Mrs. Thomas Wood, of the Terrace, Windsor.

The Jewish Race. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 29 December 1899
I The Jewish Race. SOME alarm hos been caused ia Hebrew circles bj a statement that inter-marriages between members of their own faith and "Christiane " as they are called, is becoming very frequent. The ever - necessary Coghlan has been appealed to, and he decides that about 20 per cent ot the Jews who marry, commit their future happiness to non Jewish wires; that Jewesses are more constant to the faith where matrimony is concerned than men. Undoubtedly all the great causes, which in the past have kept this relic of a great people distinct,* hare no longer.any existence. In the British Empire there is no such thing as "Civil disabilities of the Jews' " ; in this colony we have members of the great race occupy ing the most honorable positions ia the country, and thero ""is no reason why they should not, they are j equal in ability, in character, and in patriotism to any other citizen, and it is quite conceivable that the time will come when they will enter-marry just as various mem ...
Theoretic Fighting. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 29 December 1899
Theoretic Fighting:. MANY and various are the explana tions offered for General Butler's defeat, but the question which seems to need asking ie, why did he make, the attack at all. From cabled accounts the Boers were strongly posted ia great numbers among the hills on one bank of a river, and the British endeavored to cross the river at one particular spot ; what had tbe Boers to do but get all their artillery trained on to that one ppot, which could not have been more than a hundred yards wide at the most. It wc uld _^ not take anything like 20,000 men to block Buch an attempt as that. This has been the position in a iess exaggerated degree with all the British reverses ; the Boers were 60 strongly posted, that' a thousand could resist the attack of an army. It would seem better for the Brit ish to advance in force bv means of a detour, striking to level country.
