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

Riverstone. Some good quarter-mile spurts for prizes and bridles came off here on New Year's Day. There were about 400 people present. Mr. W. Smith officiated as Judge; Mr John Cobcroft starter. Dick Cullen's Betsy won the two principal events of the day. There were a lot of other sports besides. The committee intend giving some prizes for small handicaps on Anniversary Day which should be well patronised. On Tuesday (New Year's Day) the Presby terians treated the Sunday School children to a picnic. All kinds of games were played, and prizes competed for. The children seemed to enjoy themselves thoroughly. They broke up about 7.30 p.m. The local band played round the town on New Year's Eve. They got a good reception every where. The weather has been intensely hot the last week.

THE DANGEBFIELDS. (A CHRISTMAS STOGY.) [WHITTEN SPECIALLY FOK W" AND R. GAZETTE, BY G. D.] CHAPTER III.-Continued Tom sauntered down the garden and across the road, attracted by the music; gently opened the church door, and sat .down in a shady corner. He was no mean amateur himself, and he was in a manner charmed by the evident feeling of the player. After a half-hour spent in the church, the noise of the closing of the gallery door recalled him from his thoughts-thoughts prompted by the dulcet tones stealing on his ear. f He started up hastily and moved to' the .door, fearing he would be locked in, but before him was a young lady, evidently Miss Moorcombe, consequently the organist, according to Mrs. Bassett's .account- Tom drew back slightly em barassed, fearing an intrusion on practice ; but this was quickly dispelled when the girl turned to him with a sweet smile, holding the door open, and wait ing to lock up the church Tom passed out of the building with a slight bow, and loi...

McShane informs us (Goulburn " Post") that on Sunday after noon last at some rocks rfear the waterworks he saw two men, who in formed him that a snake had concealed itself under a large stone near by. Acting on his advice, one man lifted the stone, while the other prepared to kill the reptile with another stone. On the re moval of the stone two snakes were discovered and dispatched, and on these being opened 58 young ones were found and drilled, making a total of 60 snakes killed.

Looking back over the past 12 months it cannot be said that the progress was made which should have been the case, and yet we have ?every reason to be satisfied. During the greater portion of that period the farmiEg population had to contend with adverse seasons, and as a natural sequence, all departments of trcde were to a great ?extent affected.

The Joys of a Country Life. [WRITTEN FOR THE "GAZETTE."] II. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

The Joys of a Country Life. [WRITTEN FOR THE " GAZETTE."] U. Since our emancipation from the city wchave often longed for some kind friend or institution that would lend such books to us as our moderate means were unable to purchase. The opportunity came at last. We live but 12 miles or so from one of the many somnolent country towns that stagnate their little lives away in our colony. Our particular town bears the unique distinction of having furnished the smallest audiences Major Dane has ever addressed. The good Major, labouring, no doubt, under the pleasing hallucination that a town with a population of over 2000, in the centre of a large agricultural and pastoral district, might possibly con tain a couple of hundred intelligent adults, recently arranged to deliver two of his inimitable lectures on " Up the Rhine" and " London" respectively. Eighteen inhabitants were actually gal vanised into attending the first, and about thirty the second lecture. A neigh bouring farmer kindly...

The Parser Smiled. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

The Parser Smiled. There were not many white passengers on that trip of the Lan Pablo to China and Japan, but had they been much more numer ous there was a trio standing near the gang plank that could not have escaped observa tion. Guessing at their relations, one to another, I put them down either as being a young wife with an elderly husband and a young male friend of the family ; or, a newly married pair, with a father come to wish them bon voyage. Whiche ver might be the case, it was very evident that the lady was the first per son of the trinity; or, rather, the common centre of attraction, around which each male had his orbit. It was, indeed, curious to notice the badly concealed disturbance with which each satellite watched the other when ever the lady showed a disposition to put her self into more familiar conjunction with one than with th6 other. Truth to tell, the petticoated planet was quite attractive enough to throw more than two attendant twinklers off their balance. S...

FARM & GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

FARM & GARDEN. A -J Heavy summer pruning, or looping off leaves and branches after a good growth has been made always checks more or lest the vigor of the plant, and if the rubbing off of the super numerary shoots has been attended to early in the season, very little more 'will be required than merely pinching the tips of suoh shoots as are likely to occupy too" much space. There must be a suffioent amount of foliage to feed well the growing fruit. "We have seen a vineyard rained by cutting off shoots and leaves, under the mistaken view of letting in sunshine on the grapes. It is the leaves, that need the sunlight, and not thefruit. It, is better to give much vine And foliage above» the grape too little. But there should not be so much as to present a crowded mass of leaves. As a general rule the hardy, free growing varieties should bejso pruned as to leave the strong baa ring'shoots about a foot apart, more or less, winch will give room for the fully developed leaves withou...

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

LADIES' COLUMN. , ? St Louis, U.S.A., has a mining company of women. Black and white onyx is the thing for half mourning jewellery, while inch-thick rings of jet are the proper caper for earrings in the depths of woe. Scarfs of Chantilly or hand-run Spanish lace long enough to go twice round the throat and then fall to the foot are just now the rage in England. Chantilly lace with lea? edges or squares in open pattern is the favourite now for trim mings, and is set in two knife-pleated rows, turning opposite ways, about the necks of many new gowns. Instead of the silver belt, f ahion now decrees a girdle of woven silver for beauty's waist, or else a belt of the gown stuff, with an em bossed silver buckle, all the way from two to. .ix inches wide. Word comes from Paris that black ribbon and black lace may be fashionably used with white or all pale colours, and that the cheapest stuffs may be made into elegant costumes by proper and profuse use of them. Iu beads and cord the most dari...

Body Linen. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889

Body Linen. Fashion has settled that < body-linen' is more than ever to be of foulard silk, and, in the case of a blonde, it must be black, tender blue, or pink, writes Mrs. Crawford in her Paris letter to London Truth. "The Em press Eugenie caused her bed-linen to be of black foulard. The idea was suggested by a gallant prefect, at whose perfacture she and the emperor, in the heyday of their fortune, were to pass a few days. His notion was that she might feel after her journey too fatigued to get up early, and so admit to audiences in her bedroom the wives of local magnates. The sheets were to serve as a foil to her extraordinary fairness. But to come back to body-linen, I hear it said that it is, when white (however softened by creamy laces), trying to the skin and neck. But what of that, it will occur to you, since no body sees the effect either of foulard or any other sort of inner garments save the fair wearer and. her maid. I grant you all this, simply because you a...

TALE. By a resident of Coonamble. A Night with the Kelly «»Gang. On the '29th June, in the year 1880, I, in company with two companions, started -towards the small township of Glenxowan, in the north-eastern portion of Victoria, with the intention of having a day's sport amongst the hares. We were a jolly trio, enjoying the health, and spirits of early youth, with scarce a care on our minds. Our intention was not to go to the township itself, but to pick up some more chums that lived some distance away, with the avowed intention of getting, them to join us. Arriving at our friend's residence, we/were very much sur prised to see or near nobody about, though .the place showed signs of recent habitation. Our first thoughts were that the whole family had been seized with a sudden desire to become religious, and consequently had gone to church; but, again, this was scarcely SOBSible, as there was no church of their enomination being held in the town that day; and, also, we thought it ver...

Election of Common Trustees. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 12 January 1889

Election of Common Trustees. Much interest has been evinced during the past few weeks in the election of trustees for the various commons in the electorate. On Saturday last about 25 commoners connected with Richmond Hill Common attended a meeting at Mr. Cunneeti's, Mulgrave, when the election of trustees was proceeded with, the result being that the former trustees-Messrs. J. M. M'Quade, G. S. Yeo, C. W. May, Joseph Schofield, and William Smith, were re-elected. The following is the result of election of trustees for Wilberforce Common : S. J. Dunstan, 85 ; B Conlon, 81 ; A. White, 80; R. Greentree, 79 ; D. Bushell, 68 ; H Bowd, 60 ; T. Maloney, 60 ; J. Turnbull, 58; C. T. Cross, 51; so the first five are the trustees for the forthcoming term. The whole affair passed oft very quietly, though there were some sharp exchanges when the different candidates were being nominated. The whole election turned on whether trespassers on the Common should be removed or not. Those elected were i...

Dreadful Accident. A FALL OF FORTY FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 12 January 1889

Dreadful Accident. A FALL OF FORTY FEET. This we have, with grat regret, to record a dreadful accident, which unhappily had a fatal result. It appears that on Saturday last an old lady named Margaret Cunneen, a resident of Windsor Road, and one who was highly esteemed by a large circle of friends, after visiting the house of her son at Mulgrave, started to walk across the railway viaduct near that place, on her way to the Roman Catholic Church at Windsor. She had just previously taken leave of a relative who was to have left by the 4.25 train from Windsor. When more than half-way across the bridge she saw the 4.25 train from Windsor approaching. The guard and driver of the train saw the danger, and the latter applied the brake, with the result that the progress of the train was stayed. But Mrs. Cunneen evidently lost her presence of mind, and throwing up her arms, was seen to jump off the bridge towards the bank below, a distance of some 30 feet or more. Several passengers left the ...

Land Nationalization and Mr. Wise. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 12 January 1889

Land .Nationalization and Mr. Wise. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-I perceive by your last issue that you fancy Mr. B. R. Wise has become a Land Nationalist, and I suppose you base your belief upon his recent letter to Mr. Farrell, of Lithgow. But the fact is, Mr. Wise is no more a Land Nationalist, according to Farrell or George, than Sir Henry Parkes is or I am. If you will read between the lines of Mr. Wise's letter you will see that he is simply in favour of a land tax for revenue purposes, in opposition to Protection. So is Sir Henry Parkes. A land or income tax will no doubt become necessary to make up for the loss of Customs duties. Mr. Wise is so rabid a Free Trader that he is evidently anxious to play off the Land Nationalists against the Pro tectionists, and that is his little game, though I don't think he is entitled to much credit for it. " Any port in a storm " is his motto, so long as he can block the Protectionists. Mr. Wise no more bilieve-. in the principles pure and simple of...
