VARIETIES. A Remarkable Bank. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

VARlEfllS. --4--'; A Remarkable Bank. Far back in the' middle ages, Venice had established a bank, which should 'receiveJ the ooins of all nations, and give warrants to' those persons who deposited such coins, which warrants should circulate from hand to hand, just as banknotes do now. Three centuries after the Bank of Venice was founded, a similar inetituticn was established at Genoa, on a somewhat similar basis. In 1609, the year of the truce, the Bank of Amsterdam was founded, and before the end of the century was known to have metallic deposits with it to the amount of 80,000,000 dollars-a treasure more prodigious than any European financier at that time thought could bo possibly accumulated. The notes issued by the bank were supposed to be, and in theory were, exactly equal- in amount to the specie or metallic money deposited in the strong room of the bank, But the notes of the bank always bore & premium, due to the convenience ef the absolutely guarded security which t...

WHAT WE HEAR [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

WHAT WE HEAR I That the Dan I?arry Dramatic Company is coming to Windsor. The company is an old established one, and the ever-green Dan is a " gim av the first wather." That Hob Forrester did a walk of 35 miles last week collecting subscriptions for the Ilawkesbury Benevolent Asylum. That's the sort of hairpin B. V. is. That it is untrue that the Kurrajong farmers are suffering from the depredations of the foxes. None of these vermin are to be found anywhere around the heights. That the annual meeting of members of the Windsor School of Arts will be held on Monday, 21st instant. That the Railway Commissioners have decided upon running faster trains along the Richmond line. Time, too. That the fruit season is fairly in, and all round the district the trees are bearing down with a weight of luscious products. That potatoes were a ton this week in Sydney. That our farmers have the ball at their feet if they will but kick it. That one local storekeeper was compelled to destroy over a to...

Important Postal and Railway Changes. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

Important Postal and Witli the advent of the now year, several changes of a rather important character hav e been mnde in respect to our postal and railway ser vices, In the first place, we notice that the j Railway Commissioners have decided upon runn ing the mail trains between Sydney and Windsor I at a faster rate of speed than heretofore. In future ? the morning mail will will arrive at 10. 30 instead | of it, and the evening mail at 6.25 instead of 7. I The local post-oliice will be closed at 7, 30instead j of 8, but the telegraph-office will remain open until ! the latter hour. At Richmond similar changes will, of course, occur, the morning mail arriving 30 minutes earl e , an 1 the evening 35 minutes. This change came into force on the ist inst. Another important alteration is that which affects tho running of the night mail to Sydney. In future a mail train will leave Windsor at 10 p.m., and thus business people will be able to reply to letters received by the 6.25 mail, so ...

News in Brief. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

News in Brief. In our report of the Windsor Farm Race meet ing, a mistake occurred in the time given for the Hack Race ; instead of imin i^sec it should have been imin njsec. The late heavy rain has cut away the footpath in front of Mr. J. Dickson's residence, at the Peninsula Hill, and rendered it very dangerous. The work for which money was voted in this locality some time since has not been commenced. Why ? We have to thank the Rev. W. Hill for quite a large bundle of copies of Henry George's paper, NEW YORK STANDARD. They are very acceptable, and any seeker after knowledge of the y ri ciples George advocates may at any time have the loan of these papers. This week's GAZETTE contains 12 pages, and it is the largest and best paper published in the district. It contains three times as much reading ' matter as any other local paper. In our next issue we will commence a paper written for us, entitled " A few notes on Irri gation." This week we print the second instal ment of an excel...

On the Hawkesbury. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

On the Hawkesbwy. The sua siaks slowly in the west. The ripples lull themselves to rest; l The red, reflected sky Inflames the river, tints the trees. While softly sobs the evening breeze; Because the day must die. The fiery clouds mild tones assume. The stars begin night to illume; They glisten everywhere; And pleasant thoughts our minds imbue. As night gives all a softer hue ; For peace supreme is there. Between the banks we gently glide Upon our way. On either side The trees' dark shade is seen. While Venus sheds a silvery ray, The lesser stars dot o'er our way. Aad we glide on between. SlDNEIAN.

Municipal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

Municipal Elections. The forthcoming municipal elections will create .no small degree of interest, although at present no .one seems to know who the intending candidates are. Messrs. Holden and Dean will not seek re flection, and therefore an opening occurs for two .new men. For North Ward it is staled that Mr. «G. L. A. Davies is in the field, hut a good man is to be requisitioned to oppose him, so we under stand. Several local gentlemen have been asked to oppose Mr. Mayor Mortley, but so far no one has availed himself of the invitation. The names of Messrs W. Moses and \V. Gosper :have been mentioned as probable candidates, but we are informed thai neither of these gentlemen intend lo come forward.

A Ballad of Evolution. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

A Ballad of Evolution. In the mud of the Cambrian main Did our earliest ancestor dive ; From a shapeless albuminous grain We mortals our being derive. He could split himself up into five, Or roll himself round like a ball; For the fittest will always survive, "While the weakliest go to the wall. As an active ascidian again Fresh forms he began to contrive, Till he pew to a fish with a brain, And brought forth a mammal alive. With his rivals he next had to strive, To woo him a mate and a thrall; So the handsomest managed to wive While the ugliest went to the wall. At length am an ape he was fain The nuts of the forest to rive ; Till he took to the low-lying plain, And procured his fellow to knive. Thus did cannibal men first arrive, One anoth.'v tu swallow and maul; And the -Ti-ongest continued to thrive, While the weakliest went to the wall. ENVOY.

NAKED AND NOT ASHAMED. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

NAKED AND NOT ARTTAVKn At Yokohama Mr. Cairne had an em barrassinglittla adventure. At the back of every Japanese house (he says) is a pretty little gsmen, with a large bathroom contain ing tubs of hot and cold water. The Japan . ese are as scrupulously clean in their persons as in their houses, and often wash all over two or three times a day. The room in which we had our dinner looked out upon the largo window of the bath-house, in which men and two women were tubbing with that absolute disregard of deceucy which characterised our common parents before the fall, v.uon thov were naked and not ashamed. Later on in the evening, as I was passing to my room, one of the waitresses, in the oos tume of Eve, made me a most profound and grave bow, wishing me good-night. No Japanese has as yet become civilised enough, with all their civilisation, to believe it posed* ble under any circumstances that he or she is naked. In summer-time thisoonditioiiofthmga is universal. It is a little embarra...

Shortly after starting a coloured servant brought me a c&rd bearing the name of Mr. Baker, the general superintendent of the Manitoba and North Western Railway, a line which opens up a fine agricultural district north of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Mr. Baker wished my daughter and me to ride through the beautiful scenery of the Selkirk range in his carriage, which, being at the tail of the train, com manded a clear view, and lie also asked us to dine with him afterwards. He first showed us over his car,' in which he lives all the year round for nine days ojit of fourteen travelling up and down hie line. It was a carriage somewhat longer than a north-...

The Latest Things in Gloves. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

The Latest Things in Gloves. A hostess at Lenox last -week was very much astonished when three sisters, just'from Paris, filed in with the odd gloves on. The oldest was in pale eau de Nil brocade, and on her left arm was a glove to match the gown; while on the left was a black one. There could be no mistake to explain it, be cause they were both long, handsome gloves carefully put on, and theaazed hostess began to believe the girl was colour blind until the second sister came forward to shake hands, when lo ! she was arrayed in pale rose crdpe and her right glove was of the same colour as wrinkled a long expanse of tan kid. The third number of the family group wore one of the new canary-coloured tulles and her hands were clad respectively in yellow and pale gray. The effect was unique and set every one in the room whispering, but in ten minutes two-thirds of the women decided that they rather liked it. The next day the hostess could restrain her curiosity no longer, find drove over ...

The French Heel Doomed. "Women of the present day have reason* to ! congratulate themselves that the high and pointed French heel, with its obviously "de forming tendency, has not now that assured predominance in fashion which onpe belonged to it. For a change so beneficial we may probably thank more than one reforming in fluence which has been applied in this direc tion. The slowly acting force of instructed opinion has doubtless done its part. An in creased knowledge of essential anatomical facts has also poBaibly had a ocrtain effect. The most potent of ail the operative agencies, however, -would seem to have been a con version, albeit not by any means disinter ested 01* purely conscientious, of female lute and character to oonformity with a more wholesome standard. This result has come at the bidding of that powerful ally of health, rational amusement. It is to a widespread movement in favour of healthful athletic exercise, to the love of lawn-tennis and the like, that we may tr...

" And they say what is true, .Cried the flowrets bine, While they rang their bells in their glee, ?' 'Mong the maidens fair There are none to compare, For the queen of them all is she." ?" In the garden last night, When the moon shone bright," Quoth the bird that swung on the tree, " I was singing my best To lull her to rest For her face is dear to me; But I looked to the ground, For I heard a sound As of voice, both low and sweet, 'Twas ' My Lady' so fail-; Her lover was there, And they sat on the garden-seat. 4 'Tis for ever, my love," I heard from above; And his face was steadfast and true; Then her hair he caressed, While her hand he pressed, 60 away to my nest I flew !"

MAKING THE MOST OF NIAGARA. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

MAKING THE SI08T OF NLA.GXHA. When I was last at Niagara, some ton years ago, both banks were in the hands of specu lators, who charged a dollar for every coign of vantage, and before the unhappy tourist oould see his Niagara he had to pay out £4 or £5 for admission fees. But these fiends had other methods of making money. As you stood on the Table Book, the finest point from which to view the Horseshoe Falls, a huge board, which you could not possibly evade, informed you all the time that " Jennings' liver puis were sure, quiet, but searching." The fino trees which frame every lovely picture on Gk>at Island had been let to a wretch who had painted on every trunk {he startling fact that "Gargling oil was good for man and be&st," and the lovely rocks of Luna Island resounded with the cry that " Lovell's worm-powder was never known to fail." But two or three years ago the enlightened governments of the United States ana Canada purchased both aides of the river and swept out...

SKETCHER. A Trip round the World. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

A Trip round the World. Mr. W. S. Caine, M.P,, has "published, through. Meaers. Routle&ge and Sons, an in teresting account of his "Trip Bound th6 World in 1887-88." A very attractive feature of(the book is the large, number of illustrations by which it is embellished. From Mr. Gome's pleasantly--written im pressions we make a few extracts. VACCINATING THB PASSENGEE3. An amusing incident occurred as the vessel in "which Mr. Caine voyaged from Liverpool to Canada ran up the River St. Lawrence. The Dominion Government, he says, have a law that no one shall enter Canada who has not been vaccinated during the last seven years. Yesterday the ship's doctor went through all the intermediate and steerage passengers, examined their arms, and in. tormed those who had not recently been vac cinated that they would not be let ashore without a fortnight's quarantine on an island unless they submitted to his lancet. About four dozen were operated upon; but a Wesleyan minister and another f...

Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) WATER SUPPLY.-Our Council are determined to try and get a supply of water for the town, but of course innumerable difficulties stand in their way. I understand that an offer has been made to them for the sale of a large area of ground at North Richmond, formerly the property of Mr. Wisbey. As this is the source from whence Mr. Moriarty has advised the supply to be obtained, the Council are onxious to become the possessors of it. It will, however, be necessary for its re sumption by the Government, as it is stated that the Council are debarred from purchasing property outside the municipality. It is to be hoped that our civic fathers will soon overcome these difficul ties, and that Richmond at no distant date may become the happy possessor of a good subply of pure water. THE HOLIDAYS.-The Holidays passed over very quietly here, there being 110 sport other than cricket matches being played. The weather has been exceedingly hot, and little pleas...

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

CHAPTER IV. Mr. Brooks sat in the SANCTUM SANC TORUM of the office of Brooks, Jones, and Co. on the day after the arrival of Adah Moorcombe in the house of Mr. Jones. Mr. Brooks was a man of apparently about 50 years, though in reality nearer 70. He was massively Zd heavily built; his face was a cunous study, at one time a look of fawning goodnature, and at another a scowling, vindictive, snarling grin. .When these heavy eyebrows almost hid his small, piercing eyes, and the angles of his nostrils curled up in sardonic sneer li s countenance was scarcely recognisable from its former smiling servility. His mouth and chin were indicative ot tirm ness in a very marked degree, proclaim ing an unbending, harsh nature, and here physiognomy at least told its tale truly. His nose, hardly worthy of notice, was 1 merely a small button-like excrescence in la waste of fat, pasty-looking cheeks. Mr. Brooks had a smooth, oily, and insiduous manner, very taking when he put on his-we were going to s...

SACKVILLE REACH. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

SACKVILLE REACH. The Band of Courage gave a tea meeting at the Gospel Hall on Boxing Day, the proceeds from which were devoted to payment of debt still exist ing on the building. This is the more creditable to them, seeing that long before the establishment of the society this debt was incurred. The meet ing from beginning to end proved very successful. Not the least interesting part of a long and ex cellent programme was the presentation of a neat "escritoire" as a birthday gift to the Rev. J. Ayling, the organiser and conductor of the band. After a very pertinent and congratulatory speech by Mr. C. Tuckerman, introductory of the aifair, Miss Johnston and Miss Brown, deputed by their fellow-members, read the following address, which will speak for itself: " To the Rev. John Ayling Rev. and Dear Sir,-We, the members of the Sackville Reach Band of Courage consider that the time has arrived when we should express in some way our indebtedness and gratitude to you for the untiring energ...
