A Trip Round the Terrace. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 February 1889
A Trip Round the Terrace. One of the most delightful drives in the district is tliat round the Terrace, from Windsor, and through Richmond and Enfield. Starting from the former place, one travelsjalong the highway through Free man's Reach, the road being bordered with well-tilled farms, rich in the growth of maize and all the agricultural products peculiar to the locality. Here one sees a plot of lucerne, there a fine field of corn, unhappily handicapped in its growth by the dryness of the season and the great heat of the summer sun, which in some places has had the effect of scorching up and rendering valueless all vegetation. Past the Public School at Blacktown, so ably presided over by Mr. J. Walker, a pedagogue of the right stamp, the tourist travels until he reaches a high point along the main road-the Terrace itself-from which a magnificent view is obtained of the rich and prolific Hawkesbury Valley. Away in the distance lie the the towns of Richmond and Windsor, with Clarendo...
THE DANGERFIELDS. (A CHRISTMAS STORY.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 February 1889
THE DANGERFIELDS. (A CHBISTMAS STORY.) [WBITTEN SPECIALLY FOB W. AND B. GAZETTE, BY G. Q. D.] CHAPTER VIII.-Continued. On this night Tom Dangerfield went | to see Adah, and like all lovers, the hours passed too quickly for them, so Tom heard the clock strike eleven before he started for home, notwithstanding the hints of Aunt Tab, and the suppressed yawns of Mr. Jones. He had some miles to walk, and his way would bring him past the offices of Brooks, Jones, and Co. As the night was fine, he sauntered slowly along, and by the time he arrived in front of the office it was twelve o'clock. He paused, and thought how long he would work there before he would be ; able to marry Adah; how many years | would elapse ? Would he be young and strong then, and she as confiding after these years would pass; he thought of his brother Cyril, now pushing his way in the world as he had done himself at even an earlier age, and he looked back with pardonable pride to his own exertions to fit Cyril for h...
An Advertiser's Opinion of the 'Gazette.' [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 February 1889
An Advertiser's Opinion of the ' Gazette.' In publishing the subjoined, we do so merely for the purpose of showing how highly our paper is thought of by one of our constituents in the metropolis. Mr. F. M. Clements, manufacturing chemist, of Newtewn, is an extensive advertiser, and in renewing his order last week, he wrote as follows: I congratulate you on your views and abilities( and only wish we had a few more pressmen of your stamp in the colony. Then there might be a chance of our making some progress : yours is a NEWSPAPER, most of the things printed in N. S. wales are merely advertising sheets edited with a pair of scissors. Nobody knows it better than I do. 1 hope your circulation increases, as you deserve it should. Local business men should make a note of this, and by giving us their orders they will have the satisfaction of knowing that they are supporting a really good local paper, and one that has a a cir culation much larger than any sheet published in this town.

Anniversary Day. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 February 1889
Anniversary Day. The holiday passed over very quietly in Windsor and Richmond, as, in fact, all parts of the district. The day was dreadfully hot, and though a large number of cricketers bore the brunt of the sun and scampered over the field with more than ordinary vigour, they must have felt rather uncomfortable when play was over. Below we give the results of several local cricket matches: Peninsula C.C. v. Pitt Town C.C.: Peninsula first innings : Douglass 17, Collison 5, Mitchell 16, Dunstan 9, Sheens 2 Brown 3, Haggar 2, Mackie, not out, t, Fitzgerald r, Skinner o, O'Brien o byes 4, total 63.

Cathartics. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 February 1889
Cathartics. Manj^ people, and rightly too in many instances, believe that the use of cathartics is harmful, and that if once commenced they must be always con tinued. Such are not the facts however, so far as Warner's safe pills are con cerned. They are very gentle in action, do not gripe, are entirely vegetable, and can be taken without discomfort, being sugar-coated. These pills are especially prepared to act in conjunction with Warner's safe cure and other safe remedies, and other pills will not answer as well. In fact other cathartics might entirely neutralize the good effects of the liquid safe remedies. As soon as Warner's safe cure and safe pills have removed the waste matter from the blood, and restored the kidneys and liver to natural action, nature will supply the needed cathartic, bile, in sufficient quantity, and the use of the pills can be discontinued. Unless the bowels move at least once a day nature should be aided by the safe pills, as WITHOUT THE CONSTANT ACTION OF...
Richmond Literary and Debating Society Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 February 1889
Richmond Literary and Debating Society Concert. On Friday night this energetic association enlivened our " sleepy hollow " with another of its first-class entertainments. All Rich mond turned out on this occasion and honoured the society with a bumper house. A high-class programme was submitted, comprising some of the latest items out. Our already known amateurs, Misses Cris ford and Sullivan, and Messrs. Fitzgerald and Walker, added to their laurels by their rendering of their several numbers, Mr. Yindin, the popular manager of the A.J.S. Bank, made his first public appearance in " The last of the boys," in which lie showed himself possessed of a melodious baritone. Mr. G. Woodhill sustained the comic element in negro character, and proved himself a skilled hand. The concerted pieces were especially popular with the audience, the old favourites " The three chafers " and " See our oars " were ap plauded to the echo, and" Good-night," by Miss and Messrs. Brown, fairly brought down th...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 February 1889
DRAPERY and CLOTHING WAREHOUSE. E. SOARS AITS COMPART? 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 s:n ill 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 cus.o.nors are buying retail from us at profits very near the COST PRICE oi those who have to buy for credit Another question arises lro in this answer: How can you buy for prompt cash more than the other houses in town ? Now comes the real s-scrct, toU i;i a f:.v words : WE SELL FOR CASH, cash down-no exception. What does this mean ? It means no hooks kept, no bad debts. More thon this ; It means that our etisto u ;rs pay only for what they pet-thev have not to pay extra for those who don't pay. These are the reasons why we are kept busy, while on every hand wo hear the cry of BAD TIMES! NO BUSINESS ! Belo...

Windsor School of Arts. Our report of the annual meeting of the above was printed last week The report and balance sheet produced at that meeting were omitted, and we now publish the former, which was as fol lows : " Your committee, in submitting their annual report for the past year have great cause for regret at the small amount of support accorded the institution during the past year by the people of the district generally, and more especially by those in the town, as the following particulars will show.-Number of members, 31st Dec., 1888, 41 ; joined during that year, 24 ; resigned, 8. These numbers in a district (excluding the Richmond portion) of some 6000 adults, your Committee feel sure give great cause for the exception they hava taken as regards that support. However, they hope that in the current year some alter ations for the better will take place. Your Committee have during the past year added a further number of volumes to the Library, re presenting the sum of £18 10 ...

MR. SMITH kT RIVKliSTONE. On Thursday evening Mr. T. K. Smith ad dressed about 200 electors at I.eland's H&lt; te.l, Uiverstone. The .Meeting was v&lt;stj noisy through out, although the disturbance was created by two or three individuals only. Mr. Smiih commenced by referring to the reason why he and so many candidates were stumping the country at the present time. They were there because there had been in existence an hunest (government, and because that Government had charge of the public purse and made use ol it for their own beneiit. [A voice : Better than Dibbs.] There was no proof that Mr. Dibbs had made use of public money. [What about the Thompson case'] He would not argue the point. They wanted Protection in this colony. [Better say tax, and we'll understand you ] No, Protection. When the Parkes party ' went into power they promised to get rid of the deficit, but it had been increased by £3-16,000.

Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) A BIG PICNIC.-On Saturday last quite a patri archial picnic was held by the Wood hill and Sullivan families, joined by other friends in Rich mond and Burwood, at Mr. W. Sullivan's farm at Kurrajong. Some 56 persons left Richmond early in the day by quite a " fleet" of Steve Dunstan's traps, and though the weather was warm, enjoyed the trip to the Hills immensely. Arrived there, they found a large marquee already erected in a nice sylvan spot, and here they par took of a splendid cold collation. Speeches were made, and among others, Mr. Woodhill, senr., was particularly felicitous in his remarks. Mr. Sulli van has a choice collection of fruit in his orchard and invited all to help themselves AD LID. Not far from the camping-place is a wild romantic creek, abounding in ferns and wild flowers, and to this lovely spot many of the party adjourned, while others selected a grassy level 'neath the umbrageous foliage of the forest trees and indulged i...

The Coming General Election. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 2 February 1889
The Coming General Election. Since our last issue several changes have come about. Mr. Townshend, who was selected to con test the Hawkesbury in the Protectionist interest, has departed, and will run in the Protection bunch for Mudgee. Although possessed of a limited knowledge of political matters, as he frankly ad mitted, Mr. Townshend must be credited with the possession of good, sound opinions on general questions, and his earnestness secured for him many friends in this district. Mr. T. R. Smith was asked to stand on Saturday, and consented to do so, visiting Windsor on Monday. In the even ing a meeting was held at the Royal Hotel, when there were over xoo persons present. Mr.Yeo oc cupied the chair, and introduced the candidate to the meeting. Mr. Smith spoke at some length on political matters.
