SKETCHER. Death Penalties. Various Modes of Capital Punishment. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 19 January 1889

SKETCH ER. + Death Penalties, Various Modes of Capital Punish ment. The term ' capital punishment/ meaning a I fatal operation upon the most vital part of the human frame, the head, is now no mis nomer, but the time was when the death pen alty was by no moans directed at the head alone. Death by stoning was, in all pro bability, the earliest method of punishing crimed, the Jews and other Oriental nations being especially given to this form of supreme penalty- From the extremely comprehensive code of capital offences which appear in the Mosaic code, it is to be concluded tnat a death by stoning was a very common occurrence, and that the ' young men of the congrega tion,' to whom were intrusted the duties of executioner, must have become quite expert in their office. It is quite possible, however, that personal retaliation antedated punish ment by the community, a»d that the eye for eye, tooth for tooth and life for life doctrine was rigorously carried out. For the instan taneous disp...

ST. ALBANS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 19 January 1889

ST. ALBANS. This quiet place was quite alive on Tuesday, the 8th. In fact there has not been such a roll up of the McDonald people since the last general election. The meeting was to elect five trustees for the St. Albans Common. The following is the polling of the thirteen who were nominated: Joseph Walker 55, Thomas Preston 40, Joseph Jurd 38, James Jurd 37, W. T. Sternbeck 35, George Thompson 34, W. E. Thompson 27, Joseph Preston 27, Matliew Bailey 23, D. J. Walters 18, Moses Walters 29, A. L. Bality 17, B. L. Chap man 16. At the Court on the same day, one hawker's license and two slaughtering licenses were granted. 1 have seen by the Law Almanac that Henry Wilson, Esq., J.P, and Coroner of Riversvale, Wisemans Ferry, is appointed a Commissioner for Aflidavits. This will be very handy for the district, saving people a trip to Windsor or Sydney to make Affidavits. The maize crop looks very well.

POETRY. MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 19 January 1889

POETRY. MYSTBRY. I'm looking down where an arm of the sea Is encircling the land, And I hear Its sweet monotony Ae it move* o'er the sand, And its deep, mournful voice comes up to me, Even up where I ntaiid. J can sea it pour its waves on the shore And hear its mid moan, its deep monotone. Saying: Mystery, mystery, mystery, Lives here in the sea, dwells here with me, Come* and goes, ebbs and flows, Mystery, mystery, mystery. I'm looking up where a rift in the clouds Is revealing the sky, Where the mad wind is revealing the shrouds That under It lie. And see them drift bock like frightened crowds With a mutter and cry. Then tho lightning's flash and the thunder's crush, And the storm comes down upon sea and town. All is mystery, mystery, mystery: In sea and air una everywhere, Mystery, mystery, mystery. Fm looking into a fast-breaking heart Like a cloud ront iu twain, When the cloud has torn it apart And the thunders complain. And I see the tears of its agony start Like the rushing o...

DMPERY and CLOTHING WAREHOUSE. S. BOAXtX AITS COMPA1TT We aire often asked the question : How is it I can buy my Draper^ and Clothing lrom you so much cheaper than at any other house ? You must sell with very small profits! Our repty is so simple, that none can fail to see its force: We buy for cash, and cash only, thus we save our discount, and this is our profit; so that our customers are buying retail from us at profits very near the COST PRICE of those who have to buy for credit Another question arises from this answer: How can you buy for prompt cash more than the other houses in town ? Now comes the real secret, told in a few words : WE SELL FOR CASH, cash down-no exception. What does this mean ? It means no books kept, no bad debts. More thon this ; It means that our customers pay only for what they get-tlicy have not to pay extra for those who don't pay. These are the reasons why we are kept busy, while on every hand we hear the cry of BAD TIMES J NO J3USI.NESSJ Below we giv...

Mr. Griffin at Penrith. Thus the N'epean "Times";-" '1 he matter of, irrigation appears now to have ^r-t a 1:iir hold of some of our residents, although it is to be le^retted I that those more ii.miLdiatL.Iy concerned, iai^o l.ui j holders and ta-ge n^ricuitu; :;lisu. do not take more interest in the matter.

A Few Notes on Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 19 January 1889

A Few Notes on Irrigation. [WRITTEN FOR THE GAZETTE BY G. C. J.] It is utter nonsense to talk about " want of a market," with millions of our own race on the other side of the globe wanting bread to eat and space to move about in. Here, in New South Wales we have a little over a million people on an area of 310,000 square miles; with a most beneficial climate and a ram-fall equal to all our wants, if only impounded when necessary, and in ?suitable places. Our market, under such con ditions, should be both local and foreign ; the more people we have, the more land we can cultivate and irrigate, and the produce can be both exported and locally consumed. With Mr. Griffin's scheme I agree, and before T nroceed further, I wish to state that this paper is written, not to take the wind out of that gentle man's sails, or to ro':> hun of one word oi credit due to him, but to assist him *11 in my?power. There may be some points of dilierence: between us but, broadly speaking, I give his sc...

Sow the Xadies are Dressing in Paris. An English lady sends us from Paris the following botes of the costumes now being worn by ladies on the Boulevards of Paris: -The fayourito hat is very large, very flat, comme un plat; the trimming, "which is of the same colour, consists of a garni ture of feathers covering the* brim and carried round the neck, is fastened loosely on one side.

The veil is fastened on the hatand then drawn in under the chin all round the neck with elastic -a style more adapted I should say to the French than the English face. Thirdly, there is the patchwork mantle, the body of one material and colour, the sleeves of another.

Land Nationalization and Mr. Wise. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 19 January 1889

Land Nationalization and Mr. Wise. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-I have read somewhere, " Beware of the man who is always suspicious of everybody else's motives; the chances are that lie has some motives himself." Your correspondent, "Viator," to my thinking, is here well described. He appears to view with distrust the motives of Mr. 13. R. Wise, the London correspondent of the EVENING NEWS, Mr. George, and the Londoners who received the latter gentleman so enthusiasti cally. All these are not to be credited with sin cerity. And why ? Because they have the audacity to believe in, and to advocate a principle condemned by "Viator." To differ from him is sufficient reason for regarding one's aims as dangerous. Fortunately, for the cause of reform, most persons are gifted with more charity and common sense than to act in such a way. The letter written by Mr. Wise to Mr. Farrell, and the fact of his having taken a number of shares in the paper about to be established in Sydney to advo cate Land Na...

Sad Case of Drowning. On Thursday morning a nephew of the Messrs. Greenwell, named George Kelk, and aped about 16, was accidentally drowned at Ben's Point, whilst bathing. It appears that he went to the river about 0 o'clock with three of his cousins, and, as he could swim, it is supposed that whilst in the water he took cramps and sank. The alarm was given, and a good number of townspeople gave theie assistance iu attempting to recover the body. Boats were procured, and all present worked well fir 2^ hours, when Mr. John Ford sccured the remains of the poor lad. Several men took to the water and endeavoured to recover the body by diving, but they were unsuccessful, owing to their inability to see, the water being muddy. Great credit is due to all who gave assistance. An in quest was held at the Fitzroy Hotel in the after noon, when after a large number of witnesses had been examined, a verdict that deceased had been accidentally drowned, was recorded.

Lecture on "Land, Labour and Capital." On Saturday evening last, Mr. W. H. Jay, of Dural, delivered an address in the Cosmopolitan Hall, Riverstone, on the above subject. The attendance num bered about 100. Mr. West was voted to the chair, and in introducing Mr. Jay, said that this was that gentleman's maiden appearance on a public platform. He was a young man who had been born and bred in the district and as tlie question was one of great importance, he (the chairman) hoped that Mr. Jay would be accorded a fair hearing. In the course of his ad dress, Mr. Jay would speak upon the question of Home Rule for Ireland, and if he said anything unpalatable to those present, or if he caused any offence, he hoped those who felt aggrieved would walk out quietly. He (the speaker) some time ago advocated Home Rule for Ireland and he did so in principle. He always spoke his mind, irrespective of the creed, colour, or nationality of those who'se cause he espoused. Mr. Jay, who was received with a...
