West Blowering.

A dance was held on Friday, May 1, at Mr. E. Lindbeck's, West Blowering, the proceeds of which are to be devoted to the Tumut Cottage Hospital, a deserving institution which all thoroughly recognise here. The lady residents were most energetic and painstaking in the endeavor to make this, their first attempt at a hospital ball a success and nobly they achieved it.

The committee consisted of Messrs E. Lindbeck, A. and F. Lindbeck, J. Groves, W. Stanfleld and brothers, Myers Bros, Harrison and sons, A. Tindell, H. Wilson and R. Morris, also Mesdames W. Johnson, J. Groves, A. Tindell, E. Lindbeck, H. Wilson, H. Pether and Misses Myers (2) Bridle (2) and Morris (2). The ball was opened at 7.30 p.m, and about 40 couples attended. Music was supplied by Messrs Harrison (violin and accordeon) and Stanfield Bros (violins) and Mr. W. Stanfield carried out the trying duties of M.C. with a courteousness and ability that did him credit.

At midnight the company sat down to supper. The tables groaned with delicacies and the way they disappeared was sufficient to say they were highly appreciated. Mrs. Lindbeck and daughters, Misses Bridle and Morris waited on the tables. Mrs. E. Lindbeck who is an enthusiast in hospital matters made a splendid four decker cake and disposed of it in aid of the Hospital, Mr. W. Morris being the lucky winner.

During the night Mr. E. Myers obliged the company with two recitations " The Man from Snowy River," and " Johnson's Antidote."

The doorkeepers, Messrs E. Lindbeck and J. Groves, occupied the position till after supper time. Too much praise cannot be accorded to Mrs. Lindbeck for the energy she displayed on the occasion. It is proposed to make the affair an annual one. The dancing was continued without intermission until daylight when all went home well satisfied with the night's enjoyment. I am informed that a credit balance of 11 10s, after all expenses are met will be available for presentation to the hospital room.

A very successful hare drive took place on Saturday, the 7th inst, at West Blowering Station, the organiser being Mr. A. H. Watts, the popular manager. The shooters and drivers numbered about 30. The former of course, were armed with the most formidable weapons, while the drivers carried stock whips, tin pots, bells for the purpose of terrifying the hares from their places of concealment. By night 207 hares were slaughtered by the shooters, Mr. T. Bridle being top scorer with 27, and Mr. E. OJdy 26. At night about 15 couples met at Mr. E. Lindbeck's homestead, where dancing was indulged in till the stroke of 12 warned them that Sunday was at hand, and all disporsod to their respective homes, well satisfied with the destruction they had wrought. - (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 20 August 1897 Page 16).


Last Saturday week splendid sport was had by a party at a fox drive through Messrs E. H. Lindbeck's, G. Bridle's and J. Oddy's properties on West Blowering. After three drives had been undertaken, rain fell so heavily that the sport had to be discontinued.

Nine shootists and 11 drivers were engaged, and altogether 7 foxes were captured. At night a dance was held at Mr. G. Bridle's residence, about a dozen couples having a good time till close on midnight, Messrs W. Tindall, A. Tindall, Stanfield Bros and D. Christian supplying the music. - (Ref- The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser (NSW : 1903 - 1925)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 28 June 1910 Page 2).
