Land Nationalization and Mr. Wise. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889
Land Nationalization and Mr. Wise. [to THE EDITOR, SIR,-" Ishinael " has answered " Viator " quite pertinently, though not sufficiently. His opening quote is good, for " Viator " is not only suspicious of Mr. Wise's motives, but he is also suspicious of everybody else who dares tread the path of re form. " Viator," I take it, is one of those pure bred, high-souled jingoes, who sees in every attempt to improve the condition of the human family something horribly low, seditious, and blasphemous. His Conservatism blinds him to the fact that men who may be engaged in enter prises not generally palatable to the many may be sincere and pure-minded, even though their teach ings may seem dangerous to the orthodox mind. It is this dogmatism that is the curse of the age, and ALL, I am sorry to say, are tainted with it. Hence, in " Viator's " opinion, Land Nationalists, RidLals, Republicans, and Rationalists, are people who " cannot see an inch before their noses," and " are easily gulled," an...
THE CHILD I NEVER HAD. A DOMESTIC BALLAD. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889
THE CHILD I NEVER HAD. A DOMESTIC BALLAD. She was an infant fair to see (Her eyes, I think, were blue), Her lips were red as cherries be (Her age I never knew). I lost her, and my life was lone My heart was Hick and sad; She was my pride, my only one The Child I Never Had I Long years I mourned, and every night In dreams my pillow sought ? That infant, clai in robes of white (Made infantilely short). ' Why weep, papa! Why tear your hair ! Why feel so very bad V She cried; then malted into air The Child I Never Had I I hear the accents sweet and low (I never heard of yore), I gaze on the familiar brow (I never saw before)! Hope rises like the morning star A parent's heart to glad; You ate, you know-you know you are The Child I Never Had!
Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889
Irrigation. On the smaller tributaries of the Gan ges, weirs or dams of a simple character are occasionally formed of triangular frames formed of beams about 18 feet in I length firmly notched and spiked together, and placed vertically, with the apex pointing down stream. Beams are also spiked against the upper end of the frames, and the whole is filled with boul ders. The beams lying on the bed of the river are crossed by rough logs, with boulder stones thrown upon them, by which they are kept in place. The water is thus dammed back for a height of several feet. Wherever irrigation, of however humble a character, has been tried in this district it has more than re paid the trouble and cost put into it: but, of course, without water conversa tion there can be no irrigation. Some cowardly folks " see lions in the path," and say-" Oh ! if even we did conserve water, the expence of raising it to a higher level for irrigation purposes would pre vent us getting any good out of it." To su...
Hawkesbury Race Club. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889
Hawkesbury Eace Club. The 18th annual meeting of the above was held on the Racecourse on Monday last. After the minutes had been read, the following report was adopted : " The year now ended cannot claim, so far as the club's affairs are concerned, any event of special importance as having occurred during its short life, beyond the establishment of a " best on record " attendance at the Spring Meeting, when the club's short-comings as to accommoda tion were most evident. Fully recognizing this, your committee have erected steps the whole length of the stand, have also extended the raised lawn to the end of the old press stand, and have resumed one-third of the member's portion of the stand for the use of the public. By these means additional accommodation for 500 has been pro vided. In consequence of the numerous racing fixtures, your committee resolved to revert to the long established Autumn and Spring Meetings, the Summer Meeting being abolished.

SKETCHER. Gesture Language. How Certain People Express Ideas with Their Hands and Fingers. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889
SKETCH ER, Gesture Language, j How Certain People Express Ideas with Their Hands and Fingers. The deaf-mute is W no means the ouly person who uses his fingers and hnnflu as a mediumoof conTersation. Among Orientals and many European nations, especially those of the Latin race, gestures form an important part in the transmission of ideas and informa tion, the story going that the proceedings in an Arabian court of justice are often trans noted without the utterance of a single %rord. A peculiar instance of the set use of gest ures is related in an old volume of Once a Week (1870). It seems that a Turkish mail steamer proceeding from Constantinople to Cavalla lost her way, although the trip was taken in full daylight, and notwithstanding that a number of naval officers were on "board. These Osmanli officers were noticed struggling with a chart in the saloon, and every now and then one of them would rush up to the deck only to return without a word but'with the same unvarying gesture. ...

DRAPERY and CLOTHING WAREHOUSE. B. BOAEB A1TD COMPiUTT We are often asked the question : How is it I can buy my Drapery and Clothing from you so much cheaper than at any other house ? You must sell with very small profits! Our reply 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 -woids: WE seli. 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-they 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; NO BUSINESS J x Manchester De...
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889
TOPICS OF THE DAY. -----? Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indifterent good to either. What in the name of thunder is the meaning of this sentence, taken from a recent speech by Mr. Ewing, M.P. for the Richmond or some other electorate away in the remote wilds of Australia. Speaking of the Parkes party, "this intellectual giant remarked ;-" The gentlemen opposite were in the position of a lot of burglars scrambling for office about the ruins of a throne which they had overturned." ,Surely Mr. Ewing had been mixing ( his drinks and his metaphor at the same timfe. Who ever heard of a lot of burglars scrambling for office about the ruins of a throne ? Burglars generally 'do the reverse-they scramble to get awaV'from office-particularly if its the police office. Mr. Ewing is a very nice young man, but he, is small; pumpkins as an orator, and is out of place in Parliament If he followed up the occu pation for which ho is best adapted he would be back on his farm...
