    F. M. Stokes was an important man in Sydney: "DEATH OF A COLONIAL PIONEER JOURNALIST. The obituary notices last Friday included the death at his residence in Marrickville of Mr. Frederick Michael Stokes, in the 88th year of his life. In the journalistic history of this city Mr. Stokes's name is a prominent one. It was in April, 1831, that the first issue of the Sydney Herald took place, of which newspaper Mr. F. M. Stokes. Dr. McGarvie, and Mr. Ward Stephens were proprietors. Mr. McGarvie almost immediately retired, and Messrs. Stephens and Stokes carried on the paper for years — first as a weekly, then as a semi-weekly, and afterwards as a tri-weekly paper. Eventually it was converted into a daily paper. At the end of 1840, or the beginning of 1841, the business was disposed of by Mr. Stokes to Messrs. Kemp and Fairfax."

    "THE BUSHRANGERS AT MEROO. By Miss H. G. Hirst; of Dulwich Hill, Sydney, New South Wales. Being an incident in the life of a pioneer settler's wife in the early days of the Australian gold discoveries, when bushrangers established something like a reign of terror in the remoter districts.

    In 1903 her father Henry Chadwick Hirst dies in Sydney tragically.

    In 1905 Hetty's mother died : "HIRST.— September 7, 1905. at her residence, Chadston, Dulwlch Hill, Hester Annie Hirst, aged 58 years."
    Chadston was in Marrlckville road. Marrickville

    In 1907 Hetty displayed some examples of Piña cloth at the "Women's Work Exhibition at the Sydney Show Ground : "while one of the most distinctive exhibits is that of Hester Gray Hirst, who shows articles in Pina cloth made over 100 years ago by the nuns at Manila." (“Handwoven piña cloth embroidered intricately were greatly prized then and believed to have matched, or even surpassed, the most intricate laces or other luxurious handiworks in vogue in Spain and France at the time. Piña cloth was such an important novel cloth material that in 1571, it was used to pay royal tribute or poll tax imposed on the inhabitants.)

    In 1908 the Hirst girls made an impression at the Society of Arts and Crafts — a "working exhibition"— : "At the Slgne of the Shlppe" were two damsels whose quaint cups In white paper (of Dutch design) gave an air of being some thing quite out of the common to the art stationary.' Miss Hirst, who was much better than an ordinary catalogue, "ran over" the list of her exhibits before one had time to discover whether her Dutch cap (very, becoming, by the way) owed its position to bonnet pins or balance. Water color sketches in a bridal autograph book (copyright from cover to cover) made a charming departure from the beaten track of butter-coolers and salt cellars as a wedding present. All manner of fasclnatlng little booklets' and post cards were evidences of feminine ingenuity in "the Slgne of the Shlppe."

    "In 1909 the Hirst girls were noted at the the Girls' Realm Guild Exhibition in April at theTown Hall : "Designers in Art Stationary, the Misses Hirst ' had "another circle of "Ohs" and '"Ahs', round their stall." Later the same year a stall at the Society of Arts & Crafts : "One stall (the Misses H. and A. Hirst's) was devoted to card-painting, in which were many local and typical designs."

    Period: c.1910 - c.1956.

    Left for London in February 1910 on board the R.M.S. Osterley. In London lived at 28 Colville Square.Census detail of 1911 when both sisters are named.

    In 1912 we have the first mention of the Hirst sisters' "boldly designed" pottery at the Arts and Crafts Society rooms : "Miss Mullen's postcard books, the Misses Hirst's boldly designed pottery. Miss Elliott's mirror, with painted peacock back, and many other articles are really charming."
    I 1914 :
    "Miss Moroney and Miss Hirst are showing delightful pottery ware, and Miss Florence Leist's bowl ornamented with gum leaves, and tall peacock vase by Miss Bell-Brown (bought by the trustees of the Art Gallery), are splendid examples of trie work women have been doing."
    1915 : Miss H. Hirst and her sister, Miss A. Hirst, whose original booklet designs and artistic decorative articles are well known, are leaving for Europe, with the intention of offering their services in any capacity in connection with the war. They will be bearers of the bale of socks collected by Miss Jay in response to Queen Mary's appeal for socks for the mine-sweepers. The Misses Hirst have been associated with the Arts and Crafts Society of New South Wales in Sydney.

    Also in May 1915 this article appeared in the Australian press : "GREAT efforts are being made by the Soldiers' Sock Fund to have a shipment ready by April 24. So many thousands of our troops will be then ready for service that the necessary equipment must be finished in good time. Wool, money, and knitters are wanted, and Mrs. Keith Jopp, the president of the fund, will be pleased to receive contributions. Miss Mary Jay's appeal for socks for the mine-sweepers in the North Sea has met with a most generous response, and the second hundred pairs have been forwarded to London, the Misses Hirst having undertaken the care of them. These men do the heroic deeds of clearing away the deadly mines which the Germans have sown broadcast, and all we can do to help them is not too much. Smaller parcels are sent almost weekly to friends in London, who pass the socks on to the right quarter.
    One well-known Sydney girl who has four cousins (brothers) at the front has forwarded several contributions in this way. The postage on such packets is quite out of proportion, and several complaints have been made, the postage .on one small parcel being well over two shillings — more than the value of one .pair of socks. Surely the authorities might deliver such gifts free, as they are solely for Red Cross purposes."

    1916 : Even though overseas Hetty was still exhibiting her work in Australia : "Miss Hirst, who is now in England, is exhibiting an almost perfect piece of pottery. In the shape of a round vase, the color being beautiful and the glaze exceptionally even. "

    May 1918 : Misses Hetty and Amy Hirst, who are well-known in Sydney for their art leather work, and also In connection with other branches of the arts and crafts, have been strenuously war-working In England. News has just been received that Miss Amy Hirst has died ot tuberculosis, consequent upon an attack ot. Influenza contracted at Folkestone last year, from which 'she "never recovered.Miss Hirst was working at the Y.M.C.A. at Salisbury, and later in London, and the long hours of unselfish hard work helped toward the ending.

    BRITISH COMMITTEE FRENCH RED CROSS service June 1918 to October 1918 as Nurse Hirst, Hester Gray.

    In 1920 the Sun published this article which outlines the period from 1910 to 1920: "Back in Sydney after many years' absence In England and Europe is Miss Betty Hirst, who went away with her sister to study art. When war broke out they worked at the canteens, and nursed in the hospitals, and after her sister died Miss Hirst went to France, where she continued her nursing. After the armistice she went back to England, and later returned to the South of France and Spain.
    Then she visited Paris and took up her art studies again, after an interval of five years. She attended the art schools, and made a special study of pottery, experimenting with several new glazes. Miss Hirst found an abounding interest in the streets of the many towns she visited, and a short lecturette on streets— London to Sydney via Paris— was recently given before the Health Society. She has rejoined the Arts and Crafts Society, and is anxious to take up her work again in Sydney."

    In November 1920 Hetty wrote about street life in Paris and this was picked up by both the Sydney and Perth press for comment : "KERB MARKETS - MOVABLE STANDS - The Way of Paris - In view of the Randwick Council's proposal to build movable markets to visit dally the boroughs of the municipality, Miss Hetty Hirst, recently returned from France, gives an account of the morning market In Paris."

    In 1921 published the "Through the gates" a illustrated work by her sister Amy Denton Hirst who had died tragically from TB in 1918 in England :
    "It seems only a short time since the Hirst girls — as they were affectionately known— were studying art in Sydney. Miss Amy Hirst, and her sister, Miss Hetty Hirst, commenced their studies here, then went to London and Paris. The war intervened, and the Red Cross had the service of both girls. Now Miss Hetty Hirst, back in Sydney, has supervised the publication by Tyrrell's of the book of her sister, who died in London in the early part of 1918. "Through the Gates" collects verse and fragmentary prose, pictures in color and black and white, written and painted over a period of 10 years. The letterpress is mystical and full of symbolism; the pictures— some of them nice pieces of color illustrate the text sympathetically."

    In 1923 Hetty's pottery was described by 'Villette' as : "The potters art offers great opportunities for girls who wish to earn a living and who have artistic abilities and a talent for designing. It is a profession that is not widely followed out here, and therefore there is scope for pioneering work. I know of two girls in Australia who have been most successful with this work. The first is Miss Hetty Hirst, who is well known in Sydney, and who makes the most exquisite little vases and bowls. She gets a wonderful glaze, and her designs and colouring are beautiful. Miss Hirst has had the advantage of travel and study in Europe, and she has served a long apprenticeship, though not so long as she might have done, for she gave up her work entirely during the war to become a V.A.D. But although Miss Hirst applies the knowledge she gained abroad in her present work, she manages to instil into her pottery something, that is essentially Australian, and she often uses typical Australian flowers and foliage as the basis for her conventional designs. "

    In 1923 too Hetty's other skills are mentioned here: "MISS HIRST, in conjunction with Miss Mildred Creed, is responsible for one of the most beautiful honour rolls which have been executed since the war. It, is destined for St. Peter's Cathedral, Armidale, N.S.W. The memorial is in book form, the cover (Miss Creed's work) being of oxidised silver with a raised wreath of laurel leaves at the edge near the bottom being a row of gum-nuts to give an Australian touch. In the centre is a raised cross set with black opals. Miss Hirst is responsible for both the binding (blue marocco and the exquisite lettering, which is done on parchment. There are many hundreds of names inscribed, and the work reflects the greatest credit. The book, with its silver case, will be placed on the altar of the Cathedral. — (Photo: Judith Fletcher.)"

    In 1928 : The annual meeting of the Society of Arts and Crafts was held at the Blue Tea-room, Rowe-street, last night, when the following office-bearers were elected for the ensuing year:- President, Miss F. Sulman; vice-presidents, Miss Fairfax, Miss Eadith Walker, Mr. W. H. Ifould; hon. treasurer, Miss M. R. Innes; executive, Miss V. F. P. Allen, Miss M. D. Bamborger, Miss J. Booth, Mrs. L. G. Dalgarno, Mrs. V. Eyre, Miss M. Farmer, Miss H. G. Hirst, Mr. W. Inman, Miss J. M. Lesslie, Miss R. M. Madsen, Miss J, Mackenzie, Miss E. Mort, Mrs. A. M. Parsons."

    In 1930 Hetty gave an address to the Society of Arts and Crafts on Spanish Pottery : "SPANISH POTTERY.
    As a conclusion to the week's exhibition of art work held by the Society of Arts and Crafts, Miss H. L. Hirst gave an address on Spanish pottery to members of the society at the Golden Shower Tearooms last night. Pottery, said Miss Hirst, had been one of the most flourishing of the Moorish industries, but it declined about the end of the 18th Century, and since that time It had not been revived to any great extent. There were four distinct types in the old pottery-pale yellow or gold, iridescent, copper-red, and mother of pearl. Arising from the ancient Roman mosaic, the architectural use of pottery had reached great heights, and some of the tiles in the Moorish Royal houses were magnificent specimens of what the industry could produce.
    Interesting examples of pottery produced during different stages of the progress of the craft were shown by Miss Hirst, who stated that the Moors had been able to manufacture even trinkets out of clay. At one stage there had been produced a variety of porous pottery, made from a peculiar sweet-tasting clay, which women even in the best class had been tempted to eat, thus giving rise to many strange illnesses."
    &
    In November 1930 Hetty had some 'cuerda seca' pieces pictured in the press at the annual exhibition of the Society of Arts and Crafts of N.S.W. : " Surely, we think, these people must hanker after the encouragement of occasional purchase, for such little sparks of original genius have a strugling (sic) time, to keep aglow, and yet they warm the hearts of the workers and those who follow after and buy the result. In the accompanying picture of 'Cuerda Seca' pottery the specimens were designed and executed by Miss H. G. Hirst after the style of examples seen in Spain. The larger of these vases has been named by Miss Hirst 'Ad Quadratum,' as the design is of Masonic significance."

    In 1931 Census was living at 8 Lytton Street.

    Potter and craftworker, was a member of the Society of Arts and Crafts of NSW for 46 years until her death in 1956. Possibly a cousin of Wynne Prize winning sculptor G. W. L. Hirst (1868-1965).Sister of Amy Denton Hirst.

    In 1933 : "One of the vases (No. 11) is a particularly pleasing piece. Miss H. G. Hirst shows some pottery in which a little-used method of glazing (cuerda seca or "dry line") has been employed with interesting results."
    &
    "In another corner, Miss H. G. Hirst manipulated a potter's wheel, and also exhibited some examples of 'cuerda seca' work, which she learned in Spain immediately after the war, v/hen she was demobilised from the French Red Cross. The art was rediscovered after it had been allowed to die out for hundreds of years. Originally Introduced by the Moors, the tiles, are particularly beautiful, the "dry line" preventing the design from running. Now, 1200 years after the art was Introduced into Spain, Miss Hirst is using It with good effect for tiles, with Australian wild flowers as the decorative motif. Little Spanish tables, with tiled tops, are among the most attractive of the finished articles. The art Is also used for pottery, and one vase, designed by Miss Hirst, has a fanciful decoration which she calls "Wendy's House." A matching vase Is "Peter Pan."" ( The Sun November 1933 )

    In 1939 Hester Gray Hirst og 105 West-street, Crow's Nest, was appointed as a an Honorary Ranger under the BIRDS AND ANIMALS PROTECTION ACT, 1918.

    In 1913 Census living with her sister Amy Denton Hirst at Thalia, 88 Beach Road, Darling Point.

    Hester Gray Hirst, 105 West-street, Crow's Nest.

    At the time of her death on June 27, 1956 Hester Gray Hirst was living at 105 West-street, Crow's Nest.

    WOMEN'S COLUMN NOTES ON VARIOUS SUBJECTS By "VILLETTE" POTTERY. The potters art offers great oppor- tunities for girls who wish to earn a liv- ing and who have artistic abilities and a talent for designing. It is a profes- sion that is not widely followed out here, and therefore there is scope for pioneering work. I know of two girls in Australia who have been most suc- cessful with this work. The first is Miss Hetty Hirst, who is well known in Sydney, and who makes the most ex- quisite little vases and bowls. She gets a wonderful glaze, and her designs and colouring arc beautiful. Miss Hirst has had the advantage of travel and study in Europe, and she has served a long ap- prcnticeship, though not so long as she might have done, for she gave up her work entirely during the war to become a V.A.D. But although Miss Hirst ap- plies the knowledge she gained abroad in her present work, she manages to in- stil into her pottery something, that is essentially Australian, and she often uses typical Australian flowers and foli- age as the basis for her conventional de- signs. The other is a girl in Brisbane, who has not had the same advantages as Miss Hirst, but in spite of that has made a great success of her work. Having de- cided what she wanted to do, she bor- rowed the necessary money to set up her baking plant, and buy the necessary tools and materials. After a few years at the work she was making about £500 a year. Hers was rather a different class of work from that of Miss Hirst; she devoted herself to the making of jugs and teapots and other articles of household use. Both these women find their work most fascinating, as well as profitable, and Miss Hirst, who has also practised other arts, declares that the potter's is the most satisfying of all. This work is worth consideration by girls who intend to make a living by their artistic abilities, because there is a tendency at present to rush poster work, advertising, designing, and illus- tration, as the only forms of commercial art. It is always as well to keep in mind that the newer fields present the greater opportunities.

    while one of the most distinctive exhibits is that of Hester Gray Hirst, who shows articles in Pina cloth made over 100 years ago by the nuns' at Manila.

    "“Handwoven piña cloth embroidered intricately were greatly prized then and believed to have matched, or even surpassed, the most intricate laces or other luxurious handiworks in vogue in Spain and France at the time. Piña cloth was such an important novel cloth material that in 1571, it was used to pay royal tribute or poll tax imposed on the inhabitants.

    “Piña cloth weaving reached its peak of perfection in the late 18th century and in the first half of the 19th century. Piña cloth became one of the most sought after handwoven materials because it was a suitable wear to tropical climate and due to its uniqueness and beauty, it offered the most feminine and refined look in an age of elegance and romanticism. Piña cloth then was described as “one of the most beautiful fabrics of Manila . . . only used in the dress of the wealthy, being too costly for common use…”

    “Philippine piña was so notable then that items like handkerchiefs, gowns and linens were considered worthy gifts for royalty. In 1862, a piña handkerchief was presented as a wedding gift to Princess Alexandra on the occasion of her marriage to Edward VII by Edward Parr, one of the moving spirits of the Manila British Community. Today, a replica of this can be found in the piña collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Other outstanding gifts to royalty and heads of state were also discovered and were said to be so well-received."

    SPANISH POTTERY.
    As a conclusion to the week's exhibition of art work held by the Society of Arts and Crafts, Miss H. L. Hirst gave an address on Spanish pottery to members of the society at the Golden Shower Tearooms last night. Pottery, said Miss Hirst, had been one of the most flourishing of the Moorish industries, but it declined about the end of the 18th Century, and since that time It had not been revived to any great extent. There were four distinct types in the old pottery-pale yellow or gold, iridescent, copper-red, and mother of pearl. Arising from the ancient Roman mosaic, the architectural use of pottery had reached great heights, and some of the tiles in the Moorish Royal houses were magnificent specimens of what the industry could produce.
    Interesting examples of pottery produced during different stages of the progress of the craft were shown by Miss Hirst, who stated that the Moors had been able to manufacture even trinkets out of clay. At one stage there had been produced a variety of porous pottery, made from a peculiar sweet-tasting clay, which women even in the best class had been tempted to eat, thus giving rise to many strange illnesses.

It, is destined for St. Peter's Cathedral, Armidale, N.S.W. The memorial is in book form, the cover (Miss Creed's work) being of oxidised silver with a raised wreath of laurel leaves at the edge near the bottom being a row of gum-nuts to give an Australian touch. In the centre is a raised cross set with black opals. Miss Hirst is responsible for both the binding (blue marocco and the exquisite lettering, which is done on parchment. There are many hundreds of names inscribed, and the work reflects the greatest credit. The book, with its silver case, will be placed on the altar of the Cathedral. — (Photo: Judith Fletcher.)

    TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.
    Sir,- In reference to the verdict given at the coroner's inquest in connection with the death of the late H. C. Hirst, many circumstances have come to my knowledge since the inquest which, could they have been available as evidence at the time, would, I feel certain, have much modified the verdict, it not altered it entirely, as they point to the strong probability-amounting
    In my mind to a conviction-that the sad affair has been the result of an accident. In the first place, the deceased was in excellent health and spirits on that morning when he went to town, and he had only just completed the purchase of some land, on which he Intended to build, and had paid the deposit on it the same morning only an hour before. His daughter and a medical friend of his accompanied him from the quay, and left him within an hour before his death took place-they both testify to his being in his usual good spirits, and freedom from any care. It had been arranged between himself and his wife that he should buy a revolver that day, as they were moving in a day, or two to a suburb where burglaries had been frequent. he knew absolutely nothing about firearms, and I believe had never handled a revolver before : he Informed the shopman as much. and asked him to load it for him. From the shop he went straight to his office and transacted some business, nothing unusual being noticed in his manner. Is it not likely, therefore, that out of curiosity to examine a weapon with which he was totally unfamiliar he was handling it, and forgetting in all probability, that it was loaded, the accident occurred I might add much more as to absence of motive, deceased's upright life, and his strong home attachments, but I think enough has been said to show that a verdict given necessarily on evidence produced in a hurry, and unsupported by further details having a strong bearing on his case should be accepted with caution, lest a sad injustice be done to one who cannot now defend himself. I am. &a.. GEORGE D. HIRST.

    Back in Sydney after many years' absence In England and Europe is Miss Betty Hirst, who went away with her sister to study art. When war broke out they worked at the canteens, and nursed in the hospitals, and after her sister died Miss Hirst went to France, where she continued her nursing. After the armistice she went back to England, and later returned to the South of France and Spain.
    Then she visited Paris and took up her art studies again, after an interval of five years. She attended the art schools, and made a special study of pottery, experimenting with several new glazes. Miss Hirst found an abounding interest in the streets of the many towns she visited, and a short lecturette on streets— London to Sydney via Paris— was recently given before the Health Society. She has rejoined the Arts and Crafts Society, and is anxious to take up her work again in Sydney.

    TWENTY YEARS AGO
    Arts and Crafts Society
    EXHIBITION OF WORK
    BEGINNINGS of successful move-
    ments are always interesting,
    and the recognised position of
    the Arts and Crafts Society to-day is
    due to the enterprise and onthuslasm
    of two girls nearly twenty yenrs ago.
    Miss Ada Newman and her best
    friend Miss Dorothy Wilson, both
    craftworkers, thought it would be a
    good idea if criticism of their work
    could be obtained, so a group of wo-
    men interested in the. crafts met at
    each other's homes, brought their han-
    diwork with them, and exchanged can
    did comment.
    The idea was good, and the criticism
    helpful, so after a year or so of draw
    ing-room meetings the society was
    launched, with Mrs. Danvers Power
    as the first president. Now there are
    MISS JESSIE NEWMAN - Secretary of the Arts and Crafts Society. Help
    MISS JESSIE NEWMAN -
    Secretary of the Arts and Crafts
    Society.
    about 150 members, of whom about 70
    are working members.
    The evidence of their work and abil-
    ity is seen in the exhibition now open
    at the art gallery of the Education
    Buildin, where every branch of crafts
    work is represented. Although, the
    display of metal work is small, com-
    pared with recent years, the lack is
    entirely compensated, by the lino dis-
    play of hand-weaving by Miss Booth
    and Miss Mackenzie. The weaving
    display is the biggest yet gathered by
    the society, and embraces everything
    from scarves anil babies' blankets to
    handbags with hand-carved wooden
    handles by Mr. Dinsdale.
    Miss Ada Newman has a lovely ex-
    hibit of hand-painted china, again fea-
    turing the blue which has become
    known as the "Newman" blue, in a
    couple of vases. A coffee set she calls
    the "Melbourne and Sydney," as it
    combines in its design brown boronia
    and wattle. Mrs. Vi Eyre has the
    china piece de resistance of the exhi-
    bition with a tall lustre vase, the
    background of which is in tones of
    wonderful purple glaze and the design
    in brown features teddy-bears and
    gum-trees. Huntley McCrac, daugh-
    ter of poet Hugh McCrae, has many
    original pottery beads and buckles,
    and the showing of painted china
    pendants and hand-wrought jewellery
    is much more conspicuous this year
    than previously.
    CO-OPERATION
    The spirit of co-operation is evi-
    dent throughout the exhibition. Miss
    Zarker has china pendants with hand-
    wrought mountings by Rhoda Wager;
    combined to some of Mrs. Parson's
    pyrography is Hetty Hirst's pottery.
    The vogue of parasols has induced
    many workers to make umbrella-
    handles and ferrules, and the effect
    of the lacquered pyrography Is at-
    tractive. 'Women's walking, sticks are
    also displayed, and the needlework
    section, though small, is particularly
    good. The stitchery on a tray-cloth
    by Mrs. E. L. Williams is as fine and
    beautiful as that which we have been
    wont to associate with French convent
    workers.
    There is a good, display of leather-
    work and colored raffia in baskets and
    trays, and perhaps the finest tribute
    that can be paid, to both work and
    workers is that of a visitor, who said:
    "There's not a useless thing, in the
    exhibition."

    It seems only a short time since the Hirst girls — as they were affectionately known— were studying art in Sydney. Miss Amy Hirst, and her sister, Miss Hetty Hirst, commenced their studies here, then went to London and Paris. The war intervened, and the Red Cross had the service of both girls. Now Miss Hetty Hirst, back in Sydney, has supervised the publication by Tyrrell's of the book of her sister, who died in London in the early part of 1918. "Through the Gates" collects verse and fragmentary prose, pictures in color and black and white, written and painted over a period of 10 years. The letterpress is mystical and full of symbolism; the pictures— some of them nice pieces of color illustrate the text sympathetically.
