ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889

ODDS AND ENDS. 4 A serious blow-a cyclone. Hair may be plaited and yet be golden. Harvey himself couldn't discover the cir culation of some newspapers. ' I love you, dear,' the young man said, ' Oh, will you be my wife P' The maiden drooped her modest head! And whispered, ' Bet your life.' A correspondent asks-1 What should a bow-legged man do P' This is a hard ques tion to answer : but when he hasn't got any thing else to do he should be whooping for wider styles in trousers. The Suez Canal takes in about §1,000,000 a month in tolls. Hokusai, a Japanese author, has published a novel in n'nety volumes. A thing that shells a boiled egg without burning your fingers is patented. A real live Princess keeps a millinery store in Fifth Avenue, New York. The modern Highland kilt was invented by an Englishman named Thomas Bawlinson, in the year 1770. In the East coffins arc not used at burials at all. The corpse is simply rolled up in a shroud and placed in a grave with only a foot or two of...

The Municipal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889

The Municipal Elections. Monday next is the last day for the reception of nominations of candidates for the three wards in the Borough. The Returning Officer, Mr. J. T. Smith, will receive these documents on or befoie that day. Nomination day is fixed for Tuesday, February 5. A great congest for South Ward is anticipated. The friends of Mr. Gosper are working very hard to ensure success, whilst Mr. Mayor Mortley is allowing things to run s noc thly akn* r t present, believing that his services in the past will be recognised and his return made certain. Last week we had occasion to refer to the un truthful statements made by certain certain canvassers respecting the cost of laying on water to houses. Many ratepayers of Newtown have been informed that they shonld not vote for any candidate favourable to the water supply, as it will cost them £6 or £y to lay water on to their houses, and they will probably get a bill at the end of the year for £8 or ^10. This is untrue, and those who t...

Hints Regarding the Treatment of a Husband. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889

Hints Regarding the Treatment of a Husband. Be as kind and courteous to your liueband as you were when he was your lover. Then you used to look up to him ; do not now look down upon him. Remember that you are married to a man and not to a god ; be prepared for imperfec tions. Once in a while let your husband have the last word; it will gratify him and be no par ticular loss to you. Let him know more than you do once in a while ; it keeps up his self-respect, and you are none the worse for admitting that you are not actually infallible. Read something in the papers beside fashion notes and Bociety columns. Have some knowledge of what ia going on in foreign countries. Be a companion to your husband, if he is a wise man; and if he is not, try to make him become your companion. Raise liis standard; do not let him lower yours. ' Even if your husband have no heart he is sure to have a stomach, so be careful to lubri cate the marriage yoke with well-cooked din ners. Don't be always teasing...

News in Brief. Rev. Charles Amos, of Jvurrajong, registered for ilie celebration of marriages. Mr. W. Kveringham, ul Lower Portland, had a valuable dug b'-lten by a snake last week, and in 40 minutes -the animal was dead. So was the snake. In our last'issue a paragraph appeared stating that one candidate and-a-half would contest " South *" Ward. This was a printer's error ; it phouid have read " North " Ward. The receni hot weather has done an immense amo nt of damage, the tops of the corn being com ph t lv scorched. In fact, acres upon acres have been destroyed.

TALE. Jonah and the Mascotte. An Arcadian Tale of Love and [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889

TALE. Jonah and the Mas cotte. An. Arcadian Tale of Love and Lack It is well known that during the time while the earth was passing through its golden age, when men were simple shepherds, and women guileless weavers of garlands, the affairs of the world were planned and regulated with a sole view to making the human race enjoy life." Before the rule of Jupiter, the just but severe father of gods and men, the "universe was managed by Saturn, who acted the part of an indulgent grandfather to an easy-going family of Arcadians. The charm of life then lay in its absolute simplicity, in its freedom from the infinite complications with which the mischievous ingenuity of man has since interwoven the fabric. The sage editor of 4 Sartor Resartus' begs us to remember that the fraction of life's happiness may be increased as well by lessening the de nominator of wants as by increasing the numerator of satisfactions. In the present «entury this passes for the wisdom of a philo sopher ; in the go...

Cats. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889

Cats. The love of cats for their home is freely ad mitted by all who understand the animals, that they are not as a rule fond of flitting, but that they are fonder of the house in which they dwell than of a kind owner cannot be admitted. A- cat's liking to its home is not to be wondered at when we consider that, as a rule, she lives when out of doors under a ban ; all who meet her want to kill her-the breeder of pigeons, the man who keeps rab bits or chickens, the individual who owns a garden, the board-school boy, and the butcher's dog. But she has mastered all the all the outs and ins of her home, anl, like a good general, has studied the arts of defence and retreat-, so that the latter at least, is never cut off. She may be sunning herself in a neighbour's geranium bed, apparently at his mercy as he approaches with a stick behind his back. Tes, but there is a wall quite handy, and Pussy cah get over it like lightnings The bit of brick the board-school boy throws at her as she wal...

Personal Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 26 January 1889

Personal Politics. Of late years politics have been very personal. Great masses of voters are little swayed by ideas. They like names-they tend to create for themselves an Arimanes and an Oromasdes of contemporary politics. Such a state of things constitutes an immense temptation to a popular leader to stimulate rather than to chock this tendency toward sinking the succuss of the cause in the promotion of the individual. Onl^- too easily does bis popularity become a species of worship. The most, severe self-restraint can alone prevent this worship from assum ing dimensions altogether disproportionate to the position of a subject. If full rein is given to the popular tendencies, frhole apparatus of modem life is ready to stimu late the unhealthy cravings of. political idolatry. Even if he does not aot himself, his supporters are only too eager to act for him.. The careful advertisement of his comings agd goings, the arrangement of deputation and receptions, and the systematic organis...

A Howl from the Municipal Dust Heap. TO TIIE EDITOR. SIR, - It is generally considered a good time to ask for a thing when candidates, old or new, arc seeking election. Personally. I want nothing, though I DO want a little fair play for the ward in which I reside. Two candidates are announced, I believe, Alderman Mortley, our present repre sentative, and Mr. John T. Gosper, a former oue, and without dwelling upon the personal merits or demwits of either, I beg, with your permission, to draw their attention to a few facts in connection with the ward both have represented for some years. Lying between Macquarie and Mileham Streets and liraliyn and Forbes Streets is a sort of i o-man's land -allhough I find upon looking at a map of the town that the land is all owned by private persons. It is for all that made use of by iack, Bill, Tom, and Harry as a public rubbish eap, and as a ratepayer residing within smell of this delectable spot, I want to know WHY and upon what authority. At any...

The Single Tax versus Protection. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 February 1889

The Single Tax versus Protection. fto THE EDITOR.] SIR,-We Single Tax men are trying to national ize the land by taking all taxes off the products of labour and concentrating taxation upon land values. It is of no immediate importance to us whether candidates are willing to go the whole length with us. It is sufficient for present purposes that they wish to impose a tax on land values and to reduce other taxes. The immediate issue between the two parties is that the Freetraders wish to reduce taxation that falls on the people and impose a little on land values, while the Pro tectionists seek to to increase the burdens ot the people and bribe the land monopolist to help them, by exempting land values from taxation. More than one instance has come to my notice of so-called Freetraders turning to Protection because they were shown that Freetrade meant the Single Tax. I am always pleased to help an upholder of land monopoly over to the Protectionists. He'll do more good for us in the Pr...
