Blacktown. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 August 1888

Blacktown. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Our usually quiet and unpretentious village waS rudely startled from its sleep on Monday after noon by the report that a dreadful tragedy had taken place in the vicinity. In a few hours the township was inundated with visitors,-police, metropolitan reporters, and idlers from the city and elsewhere, all eager to learn anything new respecting the occurrence. The murder was ene of the most bloodthirsty which has ever startled this part of the country, and was committed at the residence oi the victim, Samuel Henry Morris, about three-quarters of a mile from the railway station. Morris had originally been a digger, and having struck it rich, and by his exertions and tlirilt rendered himself independent for lite, he came from New Zealand to this colony, and pur chased the property on which he had resided fur the past twelve-months; He was a " white " man, poor fellow, and whilst he had many friends in tiie district he had no enemies. He took a great pr...

TALES, SKETCHES, &c. "A SURGICAL EXPERIMENT," [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 August 1888

TALES, SKETCHES, etc. "A SURGICAL EXPERIMENT," ' I thought I heard some one in the house.just now,' he said. ' but I can find no one.' " I heard nothing.' He was greatly relieved. ' I did hear some one knock at the door less than an hour ago,' she resumed,' and heard you speak, I think. Did he come in ? .No.' The woman glanced at his feet, and seemed perplexed. ' I am almost certain,' she said, ' that I heard foot-falls in the house, and yet I see that you are wearing slippers.' ' Oh, I had on my shoes then !' ' That explains it,' said the woman, satisfied : ' i think the sound you heard must have been caused by rats.' ' Ah, that was it !' exclaimed the sur geon. Leaving, he closed the door, re opened it, and said : ' I do not wish to be disturbed to day.' He said to himself, as he went down the hall. ' All is clear there.' He returned to the room in which his visitor lay, and made a careful examina tion. 4 Splendid specimen ! he softly ex claimed : every organ sound, every func- I ...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 August 1888

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me. and if you speak me fair I'll tell y« news, iaaitecciK goad to either. TAKIKG OF THE SHREW. The existing system of rating in municipalities is one of the crying evils of the present day. It is a direct handicap on enterprise and a subsidy to the speculator. Let two men own allotments side by side in a town, and let one of them be a pushing, energetic citizen; he will build a fac tory, and give employment to a number of hands, or a residence-and the family who dwell there will become purchasers from the local tradesmen. He is at (Mice assessed on his improvements, pay ing, perhaps, £10 or £20 per annum in nates. His ; neighbour never lets a shilling out without a string to it, for fear he would lose it, and his allotment is raised in value by his pushing fellow citizen's en terprise. He has some old rat-riddled shanties on his block, which are let at, say 5s per week; and, although the land is worth just as much as the other's l$t, covered with good b...

WHAT WE HEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 August 1888

WHAT WE HEAR. That Windsor has been visited by the "big bear," much to the delight of the 3'oungsters. That two fresh licenses for vehicles running to German Charlie's have been granted this week. That the coming summer will be a " scorcher." We "feel" the truth of this. That townsman Rosa is having the footway in front of his new buildings asphalted. That the GAZETTE is livening things journalistic up a little in Windsor. That great crowds assembled in the vicinity of poor Morris's house at Black town on the night of the murder (Mon day). That Wednesday last was a bank holi day, and all the Civil Servants had a day off. That skaters are very numerous in Windsor in the winter, but that the "muskaters" outnumber them in the summer. That the slight rainfall this and last week has already done much good. That diptheria is prevalent just now in Windsor. That the sulphur cure is by far the easiest and the best. That a resident of Windsor in years gone by visited town during the week. Geo...

Riverstone. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 August 1888

Riverstone. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) GERMAN CHARLIE. - Dr. Charlie was away during the latter portion of last and the earlier part of the present week. His patients were thus compelled to drop their visits to Riverstone for the time being, and it is really wonderful what a difierence this made to the township, usually so lively and bustling. Charlie is said to have been on a visit to Gosford, where he spent several days, returning on Monday evening. He was accom panied by his private secretary, and was met at the railway station by a large number of residents, who, with one accord, gave three cheers for " our German doctor," whereat Charlie appeared to be exceedingly pleased. He did not commence prac tice until to-day (Thursday), when the town was inundated with visitors-the lame, the halt, the blind, &c., being all well represented. One lady who visited Charlie this week is said to have come from Rockhampton, in Queensland, for no other purpose than to obtain his advice an...

According to Sir John, Free Tradj is more likely to come about in Victoria than Protection in New South Wales. Sir John says that if New South Wales liked to act in a foolish manner by retaliating, magnificent Melbourne would in less than five years be re duced to a mere fishing village.

THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 August 1888

THE FARMER. The dry weather is the subject of complaint from every portion of New South Wales. Reports, however from the back country state that grass and water are still plentiful and that stock are in good condition. The lambing season is now at a close and the percentages as a rule have been very sarisfactory. Shearing has commenced on several stations and by the end of the month will be iin full swing all over that colony. Mr. Mackay, F.C.S., lecturing on irrigation, stated that it is a necessity for the agricultural welfare of this country. Immense areas of otherwise good land must always be associated with the horrors of dry spells until water is'applied so that the full benefit of the indigenous pastures may be got from the lands back from the rivers. Lecturing on Thursday night upon the cultivation of fruit, Mr. David. A. Crichton said that more attention ought to be paid in New South Wales to the drying and canning of peaches, necta rines and apricots, industries that are c...

Shortly afterward the sky-light sash was carefully raised and j laid aside. A man peered into the open ing. Nothing could be heard. j ' That is singular,' thought the dctec livc. He cautiously lowered himself to the lloor by a rope, and then stood for some moments listening intently. There was a dead silence. He shot the slide of a dark-lantern, and rapidly swept the room with the light. It was bare, with the exception of a strong iron staple and ring, screwed to the floor in the centre of the room, with a heavy chain attached. The detective then turned his attention to the outer room ; it was perfectly bare, lie was deeply perplexed. Returning to the inner room, he called softly to the men to descend. While they were thus occupied he re-entered the outer room, and examined the door. A glance suf ficed...
